Arthritis Pain Control for Senior Citizens

Arthritis pain control for senior citizens comes in all shapes and sizes. The kicker, as you might guess, is you want one that is tailored for your specific pain and arthritis symptoms. And it is a well known fact senior citizens experience arthritis pain.

And keep in mind, the degree of pain is determined by the degree a person’s body parts are afflicted by arthritis.

Quite naturally people will say they want relief from arthritis. What they are really saying is they would love to find some relief from the pain arthritis is causing. They blend the two as if they were one. They are not one.

Some people will ask for a cure for their arthritis pain. And unfortunately, there are no known cures for arthritis as of this date. So they should actually articulate they want arthritis pain relief. 

That request is more directly in line with what their true demand is. On the other hand nobody can blame people for blending the affliction with its inherent pain and asking for relief.

Arthritis Pain is Specific to The Individual

By no means is all arthritis pain equal. Fortunately in today’s medical environment many cases find relief in the doctor’s office. Or even on the pharmacy’s shelf.

Unfortunately since not all arthritis pains are equal it means not all arthritis pain control will produce the desired results.

To clarify real quickly by in the “Dr’s office” I mean the Dr can prescribe relief for patients with small to medium pain levels. Not even today’s drugs will cure anyone’s arthritis, but they will provide relief. And most people know there are several medications available for arthritis pain relief. 

On top of that I’m sure we can agree most are safe. I’m sure we can agree again that a number of medications on this planet are not completely free of side effects. As sad as it may be, they can be helpful depending on an individuals situation.

For example, if I have terminal cancer I don’t care about side effects when it comes to pain relief. A little off the mark in relation to arthritis pain but I think you see what I’m saying. Circumstance always plays a major role in making those types of decisions.

And that brings us smack dab into the middle of my next topic.

Unfortunately Drugs Come With Baggage

This baggage comes in the form of side effects. Side effects in some drugs can include death. Drugs also have an inherent negative in that as a person uses them the body builds up a tolerance. Hence the patient requires bigger and bigger doses to get the same relief. 

Because gaining a tolerance means the drugs can’t do what they were doing when you first started taking them. Given this is true rational people want to know how to approach getting the proper pain relief without the baggage.

No one wants to have tolerance and side effect problems. 

The first thought that comes to mind is if you’re suffering from mild or occasional pain, coupling rest with cold or hot packs is all you really need..

If you’re taking a drug(s) to control arthritis pain, you’re wise in staying on top of your dosage. And even wiser for monitoring your body.

Certainly don’t be hesitant about talking to your doctor if you notice anything you consider to be out of the ordinary. And I do mean anything out of the ordinary. 

Over The Counter Drugs, aka OTC Might Help

Most people are familiar with the term over-the-counter or OTC drugs. OTC medications are available at any drug store in the country. You don’t need a prescription. You only need the proper amount of cash to pay for them.

And maybe you need to be 18 years old. I don’t think so, but it sounds possible and I can’t remember.

TV ads tell us that acetaminophen and aspirin will relieve our pain and inflammation. All we have to do is make a trip to our favorite drug store and buy a bottle. As long we take as directed, we will be pain free and have happy lives.

That may be the case but unfortunately even OTC drugs like their prescription counterparts have side effects. The first one that comes to mind is the doesn’t always work as advertised.

Therefore if or when the pain persists, consult your doctor immediately.

Never, and I mean never, ignore severe and prolonged arthritis pain.

All Natural Homeopathic Arthritis Pain Relief

Another popular remedy is the all natural homeopathic means. Included in this remedy are herbs and nutritional ingredients. Herbs, or herbal remedy, is considered by many to be “the first medicine”.

This is borne out because many herbs have been in use since Biblical times.

Because many of these herbs were to ease pain and help with many other conditions. In many cultures, herbal medicine is the only medicine. And if helps you get some arthritis pain control than I suggest you go with that.

The homeopathic factor triggers your body’s natural pain relief mechanisms. It is the faster-acting part of the formula and is responsible for what many people experience as “instant relief”.

Of course homeopathic remedies have drawbacks as well. Although rare, some people cannot use the products as they produce side effects. So if you decide on a homeopathic remedy, monitor your body the same as if you were on prescription drugs.

Remember, it is your body and you want safe and effective pain relief.

Drug Free Forms of Arthritis Pain Control

Believe it or not, if you simply rest the painful joint you can get a lot of relief. Because just resting a joint can help it a lot.

If that doesn’t provide enough relief try applying cold packs to relieve the pain. You can also try using hot packs to ease stiff and achy joints or muscles.

Hopefully you just discovered the remedy that will work for you each time a symptom rears its ugly head. Simply put another way, basic self medication technique is your pain relief program.

Arthritis pain control certainly is possible. On the other hand, nobody said it would be easy to find the pain control regimen that is right for you the first time. Because it may take several tries. But at least you know pain relief exists.

And this is actually a giant step for mankind. And a giant arthritic pain control step for mankind. 

Final Thoughts on What Else to Watch For

Generally speaking you may have over treated or under treated yourself. Both are real possibilities given the universal dosage recommended on the label isn’t really a one size fits all remedy.

Subsequently, if you are in that category, talk with your doctor.

I might sound like a broken record but it’s worth repeating myself. Never, and I mean never, ignore severe and prolonged arthritis pain.

Prolonged pain may mean you have joint damage requiring daily medication. Obviously your self prescribed dosage or choice of medications is not fulfilling your pain relief requirement.

Some people focus only on the pain and not on ways to relieve their pain. And then the result is almost always a negative effect on a person’s mood. Moreover the inherent hazard is you allow your pain to not only become worse but harder to manage.

Wrap your total consciousness around the fact you are experiencing pain and you want relief. Above all make it a zen experience. And let your mind interact with your doctor’s prescription. Or your new found OTC medication.

Explain Investing and Finance, Follow 5 Simple Rules For Both Investing and Finance

Explain Investing And Finance

The two words investing and finance may send some people into a tail spin. But, for a relentless and determined mind, investing and finance can be mastered with relative ease. I firmly believe if you follow these 5 rules, or “general principles” if you will, you can become an instant expert.

Let me toss my experience into the ring so you know where I am coming from. I have actively practiced as a stock broker, real estate broker and mortgage banker. And, I also had an active seminar program in which I taught investing and finance.

I only tell you about my experience to let you know learning these fields can be done if it’s a genuine desire to learn. Never will I share my experience just for bragging purpose. I mentioned 5 general principles because in my opinion these principles should be applied to all investing and finance arenas. 

In order to make them work for you, all you need to do is add discipline to the mix. And that’s the discipline to put them in place and the discipline to follow them by exercising them at the correct times.

Subsequently, if you ask me, the first rule is blatantly obvious. So let’s get right into the thick of it.

Investing and Finance Rule Number 1

Pick a Strategy and Follow It

No one strategy will always be inherently better than any other. The reason no one strategy will always be better is because of the changing market dynamics. There are many ways to be successful in your investment arena. Different people will obviously use different methods to pick stocks.

For example, and all of these people will believe their method will successfully fulfill their investing goals.

Pick any other investing media and the same will hold true. Real estate, collectibles, automobiles, whatever, all require you to pick a strategy. Generally speaking, once you find your style, you probably want to stick with it for awhile. 

The second rule only sounds complicated. It actually becomes easier to do as you gain more confidence and experience in your investing method and style. And, the sooner you can master it, the sooner you will always have a profitable portfolio.

Finance and Investing Rule Number 2

You Should Always Sell the Losers and Let Winners Ride Out Their Course

And now it’s time for a quick explanation. However, I’m willing to bet you caught on to this one right away. Even though it comes across self explanatory I’ll give it a quick run down.

You’re going to sell the losers to preserve capital. You don’t want the asset to depreciate to zero. On the other side of the coin, you let the winners ride to as high a price as you believe it will go. Should you sell before it reaches the top NEVER, and I mean NEVER, bemoan the few dollars you let get away.
The road named the “Guaranteed Profit” road is paved by selling appreciated investments. Appreciated means they are worth more than you paid.

Which makes it obvious for once some appreciation isn’t a setup!

This just might be a real good thing after all!Your investment choice really doesn’t make any difference. For example, they could be stocks, homes, baseball cards or even collectibles. All of which have a value that goes up and down. Every investment has an up and down cycle. Your money is made when you sell high and buy low. And I’m willing to bet that’s another one you’ve heard before. 

Good thing I didn’t put it on this list, ey?

Investing and Finance Rule Number 3

Never, Never Ever Chase a Hot Tip

Number 3 is what I obviously decided to call the “hot tip” rule. The rule says to never, never ever chase a hot tip. Hot tips are another name for hot air in my personal opinion. Which in all fairness does come from a fair number of years experience. I believe a person should have more respect for their money. 

Another name for hot tip is insider secret. When stripped to the bone, both are shadows. Nobody ever caught a shadow.

Like other areas of your life, you have reasons, objectives and goals. Investing is no different, and should be treated no differently. It is important you know the reasons for doing so. As much as you possibly can, do your own research and analysis. This way you will feel more comfortable before you even consider making the investment. 

You probably have heard someone say, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”  And, as it turns out, not only were they right, it’s also my next rule.

Finance and Investing Rule Number 4

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

When it comes to investing or your finance, don’t sweat the small stuff. And when I say don’t I mean Never. Stick to Rule Number 4 like glue. It will never do you wrong. And, just so you know, by “small stuff’ I mean regular and expected types of activity.

Stuff like; the ups and downs every market experiences from time to time, the short term side way swings or even a large block of stock hitting the market, etc. 

Even government treasuries have their ups and downs. In other words, don’t step over dollars to pick up dimes. You’ll be at least .90 cents poorer every time and it’ll be lucky if that’s all you lose replacing dollars with dimes. The next rule, rule number 5 is a little trickier than the first our. But just hang in there, I’ll make some sense out of this one. And if you’re real lucky after I make sense out of it, you’ll turn it into more than cents. 

Rule Number 5 

Focus on The Future and Adopt a Long-Term Perspective

Rule 5 could almost be coupled with rule number 4. This rule says to keep your focus on the future and adopt a long-term perspective. If you keep in mind that investing is really about trying to make informed decisions based on things that have yet to happen, you will maintain not only a sharp focus but a properly framed perspective.

Investing and finance have tendency to use past data as an indication of things to come. This isn’t always what happens but if you remember that what happens in the future is what matters most.

Successful investors base their decisions on future potential rather than on what has already happened in the past. The past serves merely as a guide post of the possibilities of the future, if these possibilities materialize.

I initially mentioned 5 general principles or rules as I like to call them. But after zipping right through the first 5 rules I’m feeling a little generous. I’m feeling like an extra rule is in order for you fine readers!

However, it’s not an actual rule per se, It’s more of what I like to call a “general principle”. And as a quick side note, Number 6 is pretty darn easy to say, but pretty darn hard to do. At least I always see the ladies and gentlemen new to investing have the hardest time with it. I have a theory why that is, but I’ll bore you with that another day. 

So Get Ready, Set, and Away We Go! 

Here comes the next rule which we’ll know as “General Principle 6”, and since I like to truncate things GP, 6!!

General Principle 6

A Person Should Always Keep an Open-Mind and a Short Memory

At least for the actual success of any given call, put or trade. Whether the last trade was a winner or a loser it doesn’t necessarily tell you anything about the next one. 

Remember, all markets, like I said above, have ups and downs. All markets have cycles. Keep an open mind and you will be able to maintain your focus and perspective.

Apply the 6 principles and you should be successful at avoiding becoming narrow minded and focused solely in one arena. There is potential in every market and every cycle. Maximize profits, minimize losses and investing and finance become extremely easy.

Real Inflation and Government Inflation

Real Inflation and Government Inflation

Real Inflation and Government Inflation, Financial Definitions, Information Resources for Seniors

Most people are not aware real inflation and government inflation rate percentages differ. They feel it in their gut but fall short when articulating what they instinctively know.

A thinking person would read the headline and ask themselves what is the difference between real inflation and government inflation. Smart thing to do by the way.

A smart question not only deserves an honest answer, it will get one too. There is a difference and the gap is huge in almost every measurable category.

By the way, this isn’t an article on zeroing in on how the government computes inflation. You can research that for yourself in any number of expose type articles offered up by Google.

This article tells you what your real inflation probably was, is and will be.

Why was, is and will be” you ask?

Because you’ve been lied to ever since the government began publishing the so called inflation rate. Subsequently, you’ll be lied to as long as they continue to publish an inflation rate.

“Why would they lie?”, I hear you ask.

Simple. They have certain obligations tied to the rate of inflation. Social security checks for example. And, no, this article is not anti Social Security.

You know that pot of gold (yes, I’m being facetious) that lands in your bank account on the first, second or third Wednesday of the month. The raises, if any, are tied to the inflation rate.

The raises have been between zero and two percent over the last 10 years. Imagine if the government had to pay the real rate.

Say the real inflation and not government inflation rate was eight percent. Your check would have gone up by eight percent and not the one percent you received.

This of course means that pot of gold called the social security fund would be in danger of going absolutely bottoms up. Oops, no more money would mean no more checks.

No more checks would mean our Washington politicians would be in grave, physical danger. They don’t like being in harm’s way. Of course they could cook the books.

Never mind. They already do.

A guy can’t blame them but then again a guy should only elect honest politicians. Oops, again, since that is an oxymoron.

So how do you know your real inflation rate? There are two rates. Pre-tax and post-tax. Most of us pay taxes so it is the post-tax rate we watch.

Consider these facts. Most of us use gasoline or diesel in our automobiles. The majority of us also buy groceries. Most of us use electricity or some other utility to keep warm or cool. And so forth, and so forth.

These facts all cost money. The gas station, like all merchants, has to charge for their products or they won’t be in business. We don’t want them out of business. Just stands to reason, right?

The real inflation rate happens to us every day. It is what we pay for our everyday items. Gasoline is a great example. We’ve all seen monthly prices escalate ten to fifteen percent. Sometimes it happens in a week.

Given that is true that means you and I pay whatever the pump reads. Unfortunately the pump doesn’t always read the same low number.

Let’s Fuel Up On a Quick Example

For example, last month I filled up the household car two times. The price of gas on the first visit was six percent lower than the second time. If buying gas was my only event of the year my inflation rate would have been six percent.

I was thankful I filled up at the low end of the price increase. Gas is probably the easiest, besides food, to use as an example. because all of us, in one way or another, are impacted by gas price fluctuations.

Unfortunately it wasn’t my only buying event for the year. I too like to eat so the grocery store was on the agenda. I use electricity so the power company was in the monthly mix as well.

Here is just one of my experiences at the grocery store. An item as simple as a can of beans will illustrate the point. At the beginning of the year the price was 88¢. Yesterday it was $1.08.

Every event was in my sphere of inflation but the government has a different idea about those events. They simply ignore them in their computations.

Yep, you read that correctly. The real inflation and government inflation computations differ because the government has the luxury of ignoring them. They happen to you and me but the government don’t acknowledge their happening.

Another “Not-So Shocking” Inflation Scenario

I mentioned using power. The power company is granted rate increases through a government agency. It was created to monitor how much we are being soaked. Over the years the power companies gradually slid the agency members from consumer advocates to consumer gougers. Rate increases don’t count in the inflation equation.

Hence, they can declare an inflation rate of any number they so elect. They do so by simply accusing them of being less important than their made up list and don’t include them in the algorithms. Hence computing a low inflation rate is easy-peasy, lemon squeezey according to the Washington D.C. number crunchers.

Since I don’t have children in college and my medical bills are almost non-existent I did not have to account for the rise in their respective costs. You, on the other hand, may not be so lucky.

If you aren’t, you need to factor those too into your real inflation rate and not the government inflation rate. If you don’t, you could go broke.

Some Final Thoughts That Hopefully Aren’t Deflating

Simply understanding the real inflation and not government inflation rate does little good unless we, as a collective body, take steps to right the ship. It won’t be easy. Nothing of this magnitude ever is easy.

Oh, for them it is. They make the rules, regulations, policies and laws. Moreover, if anyone is paying attention, they are people. You know, like you and me.

As such, we can replace them. Truth is we should be replacing them every election cycle. Then we might have a controlled real inflation and not government inflation.

The Granny Gift Tax

The Granny Gift Tax

The Granny Gift Tax, Capital Gains Tax, The Gift Tax, The IRS

The granny gift tax is a cute way of saying the IRS subjects gifts you give to qualified receivers to income tax. Imagine that….. The IRS taxes you for being kind.

Well, isn’t that special?

In truth this tax is simply called Gift Tax. The IRS devotes a lot of words about this tax here:

https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/frequently-asked-questions-on-gift-taxes

They cover every question known to mankind on gift taxes on that page.

I call it the granny gift tax because grandparents and parents have been giving money to their siblings for a little longer than giving itself has been around.

The IRS came along in 1913. And, it’s been business as usual since. So when they recognized a good thing, they did what they always do, they taxed it.

The IRS isn’t a total Scrooge however since their rules allow, in 2019, gifts up to $15,000 annually per donor without either the giver or receiver having to report it on their personal tax form. If you are married you can give $30,000 to each eligible receiver without either party in the transaction suffering through reporting worries.

The rules are the same for same sex married couples. The granny gift tax cares not about your sexual orientation. The granny gift tax is an equal opportunity tax mechanism.

Taxes Can Have a Silver Lining?

This could be quite an estate planning tool for people with a high net worth. For example, assume a married couple has three children and each one of them is married. So, that makes a family of six eligible receivers.

Six times $30,000 equals $180,000. A substantial reduction in the size of the estate meaning the gifts reduced the estate’s value for taxing purposes. But, of course there may be more eligible receivers in this family tree thereby reducing the estate’s value for tax purposes.

The IRS does permit a donor to give more than $15,000. The worm in the apple is the reporting requirement. The receiver must report any amount over $15,000 and pay tax on this amount.

Above All Else, Always Take Care of Your Gift Taxes

Gifts larger than $15,000 should be coordinated with your estate planning accountant and/or attorney. In fact you should always consult a licensed, knowledgeable, competent professional. Running afoul of the rules could turn the gift from wonderful intention into sour apples. The taxman is the no excuses, non-forgiving type.

And, this doesn’t only apply to cash. But, securities, real estate, coins and all other assets. Any value over the magic base amount of $15,000 is subject to tax.

The granny gift tax has exceptions and exemptions. They will be covered in a separate article. The purpose of this informational resource was to point out the gift amount. And alert you to the possible tax consequence, should you go above the maximum.
