Guest Occupation: Foot and Ankle Orthopedic and Podiatry
Guest Biography:

The Lower Extremity Amputation Prevention (LEAP) Alliance, a Nevada-based not-for-profit organization has announced it has successfully obtained a CMS-Medicare determination that confirms podiatric physicians will be reimbursed for the eligible services they provide when they participate in Medicare Connected Care, a CMS public education campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of its chronic care management (CCM) program. CCM services are generally non-face-to-face services provided to Medicare beneficiaries who have chronic conditions expected to last at least 12 months, or until the death of the patient. 

According to Lawrence Rubin, DPM, director of the LEAP Alliance, this determination enables the LEAP Alliance to begin forming a nationwide network of solo and small group practice podiatrists who will integrate their services with the services of collaborating primary care and specialty physicians. Together they will provide comprehensive preventive care and treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and peripheral artery disease (PAD). Dr. Rubin says the podiatry network goal is, "to have at least one podiatrist in a Medicare Connected Care provider team that helps save limbs and lives in every community in the country."

Guest Occupation: State Representative, Weld County Commissioner
Guest Biography:

As State Representative and today as Weld County Commissioner, Lori has been a champion for the people against progressive Marxists and “Republicans” who act like Democrats, and is running for Congress to fight for freedom against the Biden-Harris-Schumer-Pelosi Gang and their Socialist-Communist Agenda.

As our voice in the State House, Lori Saine bravely and boldly took on radical left-wing environmental extremists and defended our oil and gas jobs, our water rights and our Colorado way of life. In Congress, Lori will stand tall against Coastal Elites who do not understand Colorado and those of us who choose to live here.

With our open borders out of control, trillions of dollars printed and borrowed from China destroying our economy and an administration that hates our police, hates our freedoms and most particularly wants our guns, Lori’s courage and bluntness is needed now more than ever.

LORI SAINE WILL STAND UP FOR OUR AMERICA.

Lori and her husband Troy, a Marine veteran, raise and homeschool their daughter Belle in Dacono where they are members of the Rocky Mountain Christian Church.

Lori also volunteers for community charities and church ministries and served as coordinator and instructor for Constitutional Champions Kids Patriot Camp, a day camp teaching about the Constitution and American Patriotism.

America’s future is on the line.  It’s not enough to just elect a Republican to this new Congressional seat.  Colorado conservatives are looking for a champion. And her name is Lori Saine.

Guest Occupation: Life & Wellness Coach, Author of “The Aging Athlete
Guest Biography:

NSCA-CPT. Professional Speaker; Wellness Coach; Researcher; Author; Fitness Leader. All done with empathetic awareness, Lectures/Interviews can be done in English, Spanish, or French.

Sifu Slim has been a world traveler since 1978.

He has been a business traveler since working on the Paris Stock Exchange in 1983. He and his friends used to run through the streets of Paris and do push-ups and calisthenics under the outline of the Eiffel Tower and, in the summer time, jump right in the fountains at Trocadero to cool off. “We weren’t the only ones ‘les guardiens’ were after…” he confesses.

His European roots are important in his ethic of seeking the slower, old-school ethic. “When I look at my family’s home villages in Germany, Ireland, and Alsace-Lorraine, I see how people are still connected to the land. This is important in grounding ourselves, literally, spiritually, and emotionally. Being in the earth, touching it, working with plants and animals, being in nature–all of this is import for the natural order of things.”

As a young man, Sifu was also into resistance training with weights and machines three to four times per week, but, in his early 30s, realized that it wasn’t the way to continue for his lifetime practice. Too much sluggishness, joint pain, and muscle soreness. It also negatively impacted his practice of other sports like golf and tennis.

Sifu worked at special events as a professional mascot for 4 years from age 28 – 32. This was a lot of fun and helped him get super fit, but it also resulted in some repetitive stress injuries from doing hip-hop dancing in a heavy, cumbersome outfit. He found lots of help from his practice of Myotherapy–a series of techniques he learned in 1986 from a family of health and wellness practitioners who studied Bonnie Prudden’s “Pain Erasure.” Sifu now offers seminars and workshops in staff acupressure.

Ann Papayoti has endured some of life’s most brutal blows—her college best friend deliberately stealing her high school boyfriend; the loss of an infant child just shortly after he was thought to be out of danger, a belligerent and abusive husband, a child born with epilepsy, a family suicide, being bitten by a poisonous snake that resulted in months of chronic illness before being diagnosed, relinquishing a cherished foster teen whose actions threatened Ann’s family, and much more…

And despite them all, Ann found the gift hidden within each of these experiences. The gift of choice in how to respond to the challenge. In her new book, The Gift of Shift: Discover the Key Within to Unlock Your Best Life, Ann uses many of these experiences to show how one can open that gift lovingly.
