  • Home Access for Everyone

    Lea Ann Skogsberg, Founder, Dollars and Sense

    The number one desire of people as we age is to remain in our own homes. Yet many of us are one mobility impairment away from not even being able to enter or exit our homes. This challenge for society will continue to grow as Baby Boomers age. Most needs are short-term yet most commercial answers require permanent changes to a property making them undesirable to homeowners and impossible for renters. MORE >

    There is a community-based solution to address this growing need to make home accessibility affordable for everyone. If you ever carried anyone into your home for a Holiday meal or experienced even "minor" surgery that affected mobility, you'll know why this is such an important topic.

    Ramps provide access for people with both temporary and long-term mobility issues. Yet while Medicare and Medicaid as well as private insurance programs underwrite the wheelchairs, walkers and assistive devices individuals require for mobility—except in some cases for veterans—there is no standard way to acquire and/or pay for the ramps. This concept, a community-based inventory of modular ramps, seeks to establish a pilot project to demonstrate the value of borrowing (rather than owning) home access products. Rentals respond to occasional as well as temporary needs for residential ramps. Except for the screws, each component is reusable; the units are American made.

  • The Microbiome and Autoimmunity; Unlocking Clinical Opportunities for Health.

    Robert Zoboski, DC, DACO, MS, President, Family Chiropractic Care S.C.

    There has been a tsunami of clinical research since the completion of the human genome project in 2001. Did you know that two thirds of the human body consist of bacteria, viruses, fungi, prokaryotes, and archaea? Collectively, these micro-organisms are known as the microbiome. Also coined the "second brain', the gut microbiota communicates with the human host in a symbiotic fashion. Our lifestyles and environment modulate our gut microbiota and can lead to imbalances in its composition resulting in increased intestinal permeability. Uncontrolled intestinal permeability can modulate our immune response, and if left unchecked, can lead to autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease and many others. With modern advances in diagnostic testing, it is now possible to detect antibodies early on in the disease spectrum. Early detection may allow preventative steps that may preempt disease manifestation via precise and precision treatment plans. This 'systems based' approach will fundamentally change the way medicine is delivered in the coming years. This presentation looks at the present status of how we, as "super organisms", have the capability to modify the way our genes express themselves, by changing our lifestyle, and healing our gut.
