Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

 

For those of you who know me, you know I always promote eating sardines. And why is that?  They’re loaded with the extremely healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and offer high levels of Coenzyme Q10, which is a powerful antioxidant known to

promote a strong immune system.

And only 3 oz of sardines provide 40% of daily calcium.

So before you wrinkle your nose at these little guys, take the bait and eat some sardines today!

THE 8 BEST SUMMER FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

These are fruits and vegetables that are ripe for summer eating.    READ MORE HERE

ARE YOU AGING FASTER THAN YOU SHOULD BE?

The interesting thing about getting older is that we don’t always feel (or act!) our age. And there’s a reason for that! Every single one of us really has two ages-a chronological age (presumably, the one you count now) and a biological age.

That means that even at 55 years old, you may feel 70. But the good news is that the reverse is also true-at 70 years old, you can look and feel 55!

Many of my patients are just venturing into this exciting new time in their lives-with their grown children out of the house and grandbabies on the way!-and the last thing they want to lose is their energy or mobility.

Does that sound like you? If so, I can help!

To read more and get access to an in-depth, 12-page document on the accelerated aging process-as well as tips on how you can improve your quality of life

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:   

If you drink soda consider that the average can
contains about 15 teaspoons of sugar. 

And we are very aware of the dangers of sugar – overweight, and among other problems the assault on your immune system making us more vulnerable to disease.

Changing to those diet sodas isn’t the answer either since you are literally drinking a can of chemicals, artificial flavorings,
and food colorings.

So for good health and weight, drop that pop!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Some Q & A About Annuities

Question I: Why Isn’t Everyone Doing It?

Question II: What is the Big Deal About Guaranteed Income?

Question III: How Safe Is My Money In An Annuity?

Question IV: Why Would I Invest Tax Deferred Money Like An IRA in an Annuity Which Is A Tax Deferred Vehicle?

PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS

We all need certainty in our lives when it comes to our money – especially retirement money.  How else can we best invest our money into a GUARANTEED INCOME program than an Annuity – can we do it with a Brokerage Account, Bank or Investment Firm?  Heaven’s NO!  Therefore, the only protection we see for the consumer investor is in a specially designed Annuity program.

ARE YOU AGING FASTER THAN YOU SHOULD BE?

The interesting thing about getting older is that we don’t always feel (or act!) our age. And there’s a reason for that! Every single one of us really has two ages-a chronological age (presumably, the one you count now) and a biological age.

That means that even at 55 years old, you may feel 70. But the good news is that the reverse is also true-at 70 years old, you can look and feel 55!

Many of her patients are just venturing into this exciting new time in their lives-with their grown children out of the house and grandbabies on the way!-and the last thing they want to lose is their energy or mobility.

Does that sound like you? If so, she can help!

PLEASE CLICK HERE to read more and get access to an in-depth, 12-page document on the accelerated aging process-as well as tips on how you can improve your quality of life.)

GRANDPARENTING HELP

Communication between grandparents and their grandchildren (or even children) can be challenging especially in these times.

Linda Minster, a UCLA graduate with a master’s degree in education, administration and supervision,  works with grandparents to improve their interactions.   A parent and grandparent herself, she is very passionate about ways of improving communication between generations.

Minster, the author/instructor of two classes, “Grandparenting Successfully” and  “Parenting Successfully”, while training teachers at CSUN,  knows  how stressful life can be, particularly today.   She teaches that the best way is when they all work together.   Most grandparents want to enrich their grandchildren’s lives and don’t give themselves  credit  for the positive role models they are.  Her classes explore how they can do this.

She is available for private or group talks.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
All About IRA’s

What does IRA stand for? Most people immediately say “it’s an Individual Retirement Account.” WRONG. IRA actually stands for Individual Retirement  Arrangement.

An IRA is a type of account that permits Americans to save for retirement while enjoying benefits such as deductible contributions to traditional IRAs, tax-deferred growth (tax-free growth for Roth IRAS!) and the ability to leave a Multi-Generational legacy to loved ones.

THIS DIET HAS BEEN LINKED TO A LONGER LIFE-AGAIN
It’s no coincidence that some of the world’s populations with the longest lifespans live along the Mediterranean coast. The climate there ensures that foods like fruits, vegetables, olives, beans and fish are abundant, which are all rich in the antioxidants that can combat aging triggered by pollution and stress. They’re also powerful fighters against the inflammation driving so many chronic diseases, from heart disease to cancer.

ARE YOU AGING FASTER THAN YOU SHOULD BE?

The interesting thing about getting older is that we don’t always feel (or act!) our age. And there’s a reason for that! Every single one of us really has two ages-a chronological age (presumably, the one you count now) and a biological age.

That means that even at 55 years old, you may feel 70. But the good news is that the reverse is also true-at 70 years old, you can look and feel 55!

Many of my patients are just venturing into this exciting new time in their lives-with their grown children out of the house and grandbabies on the way!-and the last thing they want to lose is their energy or mobility.

Does that sound like you? If so, I can help!

PLEASE CLICK HERE  to read more and get access to an in-depth, 12-page document on the accelerated aging process-as well as tips on how you can improve your quality of life.

GRANDPARENTING HELP

Communication between grandparents and their grandchildren (or even children) can be challenging especially in these times.

Linda Minster, a UCLA graduate with a master’s degree in education, administration and supervision,  works with grandparents to improve their interactions.   A parent and grandparent herself, she is very passionate about ways of improving communication between generations.

Minster, the author/instructor of two classes, “Grandparenting Successfully” and  “Parenting Successfully”, while training teachers at CSUN,  knows  how stressful life can be, particularly today.   She teaches that the best way is when they all work together.   Most grandparents want to enrich their grandchildren’s lives and don’t give themselves  credit  for the positive role models they are.  Her classes explore how they can do this.

She is available for private or group talks.

You may contact her at: tennislady@socal.rr.com

Aphasia is a language impairment, usually due to stroke, that affects individuals’ ability to speak, understand speech, read, and write.

 

The Mid Valley Branch is proud to offer a book club designed especially for adults with aphasia, because everyone deserves to enjoy a good book. The Aphasia Book Club provides its members with supportive materials to improve their reading comprehension and ability to discuss complex topics.  A single book will be discussed over a period of several weeks.  Their first book will be “Water for Elephants” by Sara Gruen.

HOW TO STEER CLEAR OF ONLINE SCAMS

For the most part, shopping online is as safe as visiting your local mall. As long as you know what to look out for, there’s no reason to battle traffic or long lines when you can just as easily order what you want from the comfort of your home. But every year, thousands of customers run into online scams. Researching companies in advance, even through a simple web search, can help you avoid such traps.   READ MORE HERE

A LATE 4TH OF JULY TRIBUTE

i received this patriotic video too late for last week.  So here it is now.  Enjoy!   PLEASE CLICK HERE

ARE YOU AGING FASTER THAN YOU SHOULD BE?

The interesting thing about getting older is that we don’t always feel (or act!) our age. And there’s a reason for that! Every single one of us really has two ages-a chronological age (presumably, the one you count now) and a biological age.

That means that even at 55 years old, you may feel 70. But the good news is that the reverse is also true-at 70 years old, you can look and feel 55!

Many of my patients are just venturing into this exciting new time in their lives-with their grown children out of the house and grandbabies on the way!-and the last thing they want to lose is their energy or mobility.

Does that sound like you? If so, I can help!

PLEASE CLICK HERE to read more and get access to an in-depth, 12-page document on the accelerated aging process-as well as tips on how you can improve your quality of life.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

To give your body a refreshing break from summer’s heat, focus on eating cooling foods.  These include sprouts, watermelon, water cress, cucumbers, tomatoes, rhubarb, all citrus fruits, and bananas.  These foods will help to keep your body cool on a hot summer’s day.

So now we can all be “cool”.

 

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this

“Having trouble viewing this email? Click here “.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Marc Weiss presents some actual case studies

Case Study I: Never wants to run out of money

Joann is Age 54.  She is divorced with one grown daughter age 28.  Joann has been investing her old 401(k) money in Bond and Stock Mutual Funds for the past several years.  Her original money was worth $320,000 but is now worth $265,000.

Case Study II: How to get the money from Dad

Jon is age 59.  He is married with three grown children.  He wasn’t sure how he should name the beneficiaries of his IRA monies – in trust or to the children directly.

Case Study III: Taxes are a “choice”

A CPA needed help because they had a client whose father had died leaving about $350,000 in an IRA. The client was coming to see the CPA the next day and he needed advice on how to instruct the client to “distribute” the funds as a check was already cut.
