Need supplemental insurance? By Daniel McNally Do you sometimes wish you had a crystal ball and could see what the future might hold? Well on second thought maybe not! One of the great unknowns facing us as we age is what health issues we might encounter down the road. If you’re anything like me, you look around and see many of your friends and acquaintances having knee or hip replacements, heart surgery, etc. Most of us take our health for granted until we do have problems. Medical problems can be devastating not only physically, but emotionally and financially as well! If you read about Medicare on numerous websites, you’ll find coverage for just about every type of medical need you might have. However, if you look deeper you’ll uncover coverage gaps that can amount to thousands of dollars that you are responsible for after Medicare pays. Over the last few years I’ve run into a number of folks who found out the hard way why

they should consider additional insurance. Yes, it is true that Medicare will pay for hospitalization, but it will not cover 100 percent of the charges. For example you’ll owe $1,156 for Part A deductible in 2012, and if you have multiple hospitalizations throughout the year you might have to pay the Part A deductible more than once. After you pay the Part A deductible, you will still owe more if you remain in the hospital for over 60 days, when you will start paying a daily co-insurance that amounts to hundreds of dollars per day. When it comes to doctor’s bills, diagnostic tests, and outpatient surgery you will owe 20% of Medicare’s approved amount, after you’ve met your Part B deductible. In some cases there may even be an additional 15% you owe due to what is known as Excess Charges. The bottom line is, if you have a difficult year with hospital stays, or an outpatient surgery, and multiple doctor visits

you could be faced with many thousands of dollars in out of pocket medical expenses. So the answer in many cases is yes, it is a wise decision to consider additional insurance coverage when you are on Medicare! Yes, you will probably have to pay a monthly premium, but if you do have a year with many health issues, then the additional insurance can save you lots of money! There are two main products to consider when selecting additional coverage offered by private insurance companies. There are Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plans, where Medicare remains the

primary carrier and the insurance company becomes secondary filling in the gaps. Then there are Medicare Advantage Plans where the insurance company actually becomes the primary insurance (you are still part of Medicare and must be enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B.) Most Medicare Advantage plans offer an annual out-of-pocket maximum, which varies by company and individual policy. An out-of-pocket maximum benefit in essence limits (on a yearly basis) how much money you have to pay after insurance has paid its portion. Original Medicare, which is both Part A and Part B together, does not have an annual out-of-pocket maximum. Choosing between Medigap and Medicare Advantage insurance plans can be overwhelming and confusing. Which type of policy is best for you is dependant on various factors, and you should consult with an insurance specialist who can help you determine what would be right for your particular situation.

Explaining the Basic Principles of Naturopathic Medicine By Dr. Michelle K. Jackson Some aspects of practicing Naturopathic Medicine are very similar to a more traditional medical practice but I’d like to discuss the basic principles Naturopathic medicine to help understand some of the differences. So what is Naturopathic Medicine? Here in Oregon we are primary care physicians. Which means as Naturopathic doctors, we are able to prescribe and practice as Medical doctors (MDs) if we wish to do so. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. Next, I would like to discuss the Principles of Naturopathic Medicine. Naturopathic Medicine is a natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the integrity of the whole person- mental, emotional, and the physical aspects of the whole person and how these aspects effect one another positively or negatively. Treatments are chosen to work with the patient’s vital force, respecting the natural healing processes of nature. The practice of Naturopathic Medicine includes six underlying principles of healing. These are based on the observation of health and disease to heal the whole person. The following principles make Naturopathic Medicine different from all other medical approaches: First: do no harm: Illness is a purposeful process of the organism. The process of healing includes the generation of symptoms, which are, in fact, an expression of the body attempting to heal itself. Therapeutic actions should be complementary to and synergistic with this healing process. The physician’s actions can support or antagonize the actions of the healing power of Nature. Therefore, methods designed to suppress symptoms without removing the underlying causes are considered harmful and to be avoided or minimized. Secondly: the healing power of nature: The body has an inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the response of the life force. The physician’s role is to facilitate this process, to identify and remove

obstacles to health and recovery, and to establish or restore a healthy internal and external environment. The third principle: identifies and treat the cause. Many times patients are weary of taking medications that mask the cause and never get to the root of the illness. This very principle is also what guided me towards Naturopathic Medicine, it made such sense. Underlying causes of disease must be discovered and removed or treated before a person can recover completely from illness. Symptoms express the body’s attempt to heal, but are not the cause of disease. Causes may occur on many levels including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. The physician must evaluate fundamental underlying causes on all levels, directing treatment at root causes rather than at symptomatic expression. Principle number four: Heal the whole person: Health and disease are conditions of the whole organism, a whole involving the complex interaction of many factors. The naturopathic physician must treat the whole person by taking these factors into account. The harmonious functioning of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects are essential to recovery from and prevention of disease. The fifth principle is the physician as teacher: A cooperative doctor-patient relationship has inherent therapeutic value. The physician’s major role is to educate and encourage the patient to take responsibility for their own health. It is the patient, not the doctor, who ultimately creates/accomplishes healing. Teaching with hope, knowledge, and understanding, the physician acts to enable patients to heal. Finally, Prevention is the best cure. This is accomplished through education and promotion of lifehabits that create good health. The physician learns to assess risk factors and to sharpen their deductive reasoning, and understand the patient’s circumstances. Appropriate interventions are then sought to avoid further harm or risk to the patient. Building health works better and more surely than fighting disease.

Camp for Grown -Ups By Jane Meyers Many of you are busy planning summer activities for your kids….maybe a certain number of summer camps. But what about us grown-ups? Certainly, especially in Central Oregon, we are out playing during summer every chance we get. But maybe we should take a page from the kids and plan a summer camp. Think about it. Kids go to acting camp, soccer camp, nature camp, Bible camp, science camp…. the list goes on. During the camp, besides having fun and staying busy, the kids are immersed in an area of interest, either exploring it for the first time or becoming more proficient. What if we created a “camp” for ourselves? Instead of an ordinary summer vacation week, what about crafting a way to delve into an area we’ve been wanting to explore? So instead of just mountain biking one afternoon, schedule some extra lessons and take a week to go mountain biking on trails all over Central Oregon. What if you are one of those people who have been telling yourself you’re going to write a book someday? Maybe you make plans to attend a writer’s conference, schedule daily writing time, read books by writing teachers, meet up with fellow aspiring authors and have a party at the end of the week to share some of your favorite results with close friends. Do you love murder mystery parties as much as I do? What would it be like to host one every night of the week for one week? How about stargazing? You could study the constellations and then plan to go camping for a week when the skies are usually clear….maybe time it for the August meteor showers. Camps can be something you do on your own or with a group that share your interests. Like art? Gather with a group of friends and pool your supplies. Maybe collectively hire a few teachers to come in and school you in the use of certain media. Are you a map person? You could go to old bookstores and find maps of yore and find a creative way to display them. Or take current day maps and have map following contests with a friend (no GPS allowed). You could study a map of Oregon and head off in a direction you haven’t been before and discover more of our beautiful state. You could get forest service maps and head off road, map in hand. You could create your own maps for a run through the city or make a treasure hunt map with a prize buried at the end for the one that follows the map the best. Or get into the geo-caching craze and drive off, map in hand, to find the caches. Like making a bucket list, make a list of all the subjects you have been wanting to learn more about or get better at doing. As a kid, Mom or Dad probably signed you up, but maybe because you showed an interest in the subject. As an adult you’re on your own to register, but accountability makes it easier for most of us. How about getting together with a group of friends and each of you commits to doing a self-made camp for the summer. You could party on the front end, making the get together a brainstorming session where you goad each other on to make those camps even more outrageous fun. Then you get together to party and celebrate your experiences when all that fun is over. You know how excited you got as a kid if you got to go to camp. It signals “refresh” and “special you”. Don’t settle for random entertainment this summer. Give yourself the gift of camp and make this a summer you’ll want to write home about! Jane Meyers is a counselor and hypnotherapist and the owner of Positive Life Connections. She is also the minister at Unity Community of Central Oregon. She had a few camping experiences as a child and sent her daughters on many more. Writing this article has inspired her to get more creative about her summer fun!

May is International Doula Month..... What is a Doula? By Sarah Larson Doula, Greek for “woman’s helper,” is a woman who is educated and experienced in childbirth who provides physical, emotional and informational support to a mother and her family before, during and after childbirth. Arriving at the hospital can be scary and unfamiliar especially for a first time mom with little or no experience with birth. Many couples don’t realize that their doctor won’t be there until the final delivery of their baby and that their nurse is busy with many details that do not include continual availability. A doula will spend time preparing you prenatally, laboring with you at home and accompanying you at the hospital as a continual presence until after your baby is born. She will use her knowledge and experience to support and advocate for you as you make decisions for your new family. Her reason for being there is to give you the most satisfying birth experience possible. When interviewed at six weeks postpartum, women who have had a doula were found to be less anxious, more confident with who they are as a mother, more satisfied with their partner and more likely to breastfeed their babies. Recently, the work of doulas has received recognition from the Oregon Health Authority in Portland. The study completed this year confirms what many mothers and doulas already knew; that the presence of a doula during labor and birth decreased the need for intervention, pain medication and epidurals. The study recommended that doulas be present especially for low income, underserved populations. It appears that Oregon may be the first state to include reimbursement from Medicaid for doulas. This study even suggests that if all pregnant women used doulas, childbirth costs could be dramatically reduced, because women who use doulas tend to have shorter hospital stays, have fewer complications, use less medication and are less likely to need Caesarean sections. Although insurance companies are reluctant to acknowledge the financial value of doulas, the reality of the cost saving features of labor support is gradually changing their policies.

doulas are certified or trained by DONA International and are proud to be affiliated with the world’s oldest and largest doula certifying organization. In making a decision of who will share this very intimate time with your family, it is good to interview several doulas. A few questions to ask a prospective doula include: What kind of training or certification does she have? Will she provide you with a backup doula in the event that she is unable to be at your birth? What is her fee and what does it include? Other services? Massage, Placenta Encapsulation, Postpartum visits, Photography May we call her with questions before and after the birth? At what point will she join us in labor? What is her experience and philosophy of birth and how will this be supportive to you and your partner? Remember, both of you need to be comfortable with her. If you are pregnant, and considering hiring a doula or just curious about the work of doulas, you are invited to come to a free event sponsored by a group of local doulas in recognition of International Doula Month. It will be held at the Hawthorne Healing Arts Center at 39 NW Louisiana Ave. on Saturday morning May 12, from 10:00 to 12:00. Come meet the doulas, ask them questions and get information. They love to talk about babies!

In addition, the popularity of doulas among Hollywood celebrities has caused “doula” to become a household word. Interviews with Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore, Taye Diggs, Cindy Crawford, Ricki Lake and others have influenced the popularity of this “Hollywood pregnancy essential.” Should you have a doula at your birth? If you are beginning to wonder and to inquire among your friends about their experiences with a doula and the availability of one, you will be glad to know about a new, very helpful website; You will find the background, information and personal websites of a few of the women who are supporting births at St. Charles, at the birth centers and at home births in our area.

By Susan Rutter In its fourth successful year, Central Oregon Community College’s Youth College offers a fun and educational experience for middle-school aged youth. Comprised of a Computer College, a Language College and a Culinary College, the Youth College is for students entering grades 6 through 9 who are interested in anything from Flash Animation and Spanish to making their own pasta, and much, much more. All classes are offered in Bend on COCC’s campus, and for the first time since COCC began offering its Youth College, some courses will additionally be available in Madras, Prineville and La Pine. See the on-line brochure in COCC’s Community Learning pages portion of their website. So which kids spend primo summer days challenging themselves at college with intense days of Spanish, video production or cooking? David Engel, Spanish instructor with the

Language College, says the typical student in his class is “interested in exploring their world. Somebody who has fun learning.” Engle speaks as much Spanish as possible with his students, and feels that language unlocks a lot of interests and ideas in students, such as a desire to explore cultures and travel. The Culinary College is a graduated program which begins with a basics course teaching knife skills, food safety and simple sauces and breads. Two more courses offer Italian cooking and French, Spanish and Japanese cooking techniques, including sushi-making. One of the most exciting things about the Culinary College says program administrator Glenda Lantis, is that it is taught in the new Jungers Culinary Center, built just last year to house the Cascade Culinary Institute. The Center is a state-of-the-art cooking space that features labs and its own restaurant, called Elevation, which emphasizes sustainable, farm-

to-table practices. Lantis says the program grew this year and now has room for 18 students. She sees the major benefits to spending part of a summer in these programs as “obtaining hands-on, practical skills and a possible career introduction.” In addition to building new friendships, students will also gain experience with college life as they navigate the campus, engage with teachers for longer class times, and have the opportunity to envision themselves after high school in a higher education setting. The emphasis, though, says Youth College administrator Paul Stennett, is on fun. While there are no grades or quizzes at Youth College, young learners will “graduate” their summer courses with new friendships and perhaps something tangible to take away like an iPhone or Android app they’ve created, or a beautiful image created with digital photography. The Youth College is gaining in popularity every year and a limited number of partial grants are available for those with financial need. Call 541.383.7270 for more details or see Central Oregon Community College’s website at

Spirit Warrior Teen Sweat Lodge: Stories of Initiation

Spirit Warrior Teen Circles is a local, nature-based mentoring program for teenage boys. Started in 2010, we offer mentoring and initiation experiences for teens, and build community through supporting youth. Our mission is to support teenage boys in their growth to mature adulthood through presenting a positive, heart- and earth-centered model of masculinity. Sweat Lodges have been used for thousands of years by many cultures around the world for rituals of cleansing and purification. Likewise, storytelling is one of the most ancient human practices. This lodge, open to teenage boys between the ages of 13 to 19 years old, will be a fun, potent, and approachable introduction to these ancient, sacred rituals. Our teen Warriors will walk an ancient labyrinth, hear stories of initiation and self-discovery, and connect with elder male mentors who can support them in their journey to adulthood. This event will be a rich experience either on its own, or as a preparation for our Teen Vision Quest on June 22nd to 25th. Date: Sunday, May 20th, 2012 Time: 10am - 5pm Location: Bend, Oregon Cost $75 suggested donation Space is limited to 12 participants. Please call 541.977.1717 or email

Spirit Warrior Teen Vision Quest and Rite of Passage Ceremony

Description A Vision Quest is an ancient Rite of Passage that initiates the “second birth” of a boy into a new cycle of life as an initiated man. This weekend experience for teenage boys, age 13 to 19, will mark a significant life transition for both our participants and their families. In this new phase of life, the young man will be guided, not by external standards, but by the deep gifts and values of his soul. In our contemporary form of this ancient Quest, our young Warriors will be symbolically released from their families, and prepared by a sacred circle of elder men who have walked the Inner Journey for many years. Camped under the stars in the wild High Desert of Central Oregon, participants will be safely and expertly guided through exercises of self-discovery and taught the ways of the Spiritual Warrior -- the initiated man who lives from his heart, and walks a path of service and healing. Transformational experiences, including a twoday fast and a night alone in the wilderness, will guide participants towards an experience of their true self. The weekend will culminate with a Rite of Passage ceremony, in which the young Warriors will be welcomed and celebrated by their families, friends, and communities as initiated Men.

Dates: June 22nd - 25th, 2012 Times: 9am on 6/22 to 12pm on 6/25 Cost: $200 Location: Terrebonne, OR Space is limited to seven participants. Registration deadline: May 31st, 2012. Please call 541.977.1717 or email for more details

E V Lo our schools Kits for Kids About 4 years ago the Presbyterian Women’s group of First Presbyterian Church in Bend became aware of the high number of homeless children and youth in Deschutes County. In response to some of the hardships created by this situation the Kits for Kids project was established. The goal is to provide basic hygiene items in a reusable, drawstring fabric bag. In that time the project has spread beyond the church to become a project that involves many others in the county. The project begins in late April each year. Bags are sewn (from donated fabric) by volunteers from churches, interested groups and individuals throughout the community. The completed bags, which are about the size of a pillowcase, are filled


with hygiene items that cannot be purchased with food stamps. The contents are: laundry soap, dish soap, bar soap (2 bars), tooth paste (2 tubes), tooth brushes (4), deodorant (2), shampoo (1) paper towels (1 roll), toilet paper (4 rolls). These items are donated or purchased with donated funds. In late August the Kits are given to the Project Help coordinator at Bend/LaPine School District and distributed through FAN (Family Access Network) volunteers at each school. Although the results of the 2012 Homeless Count have not yet been released, it is estimated there are currently 1061 homeless students in Deschutes County. The 2012 goal of

the Kits for Kids project is to provide a hygiene Kit for each one. If you would like to be part of this community project, contact one of the following: Hilary Rothert, Community Contact, Kits for Kids 541-312-4531 Helen Smith, Co-Chair 2026 NE Shepard Bend, OR 97701 541-382-8502 Sandra Croney, Co-Chair 21362 Puffin Dr. Bend, OR 97701 541-330-5683

Relief Nurseries Make a Difference By Tim Rusk Each year we serve 750 babies, toddlers and their families who are at risk of abuse or neglect. At MountainStar Family Relief Nursery, we simply cannot sit by knowing that over 48% of all child abuse victims--and 17 of the 22 children who died in Oregon last year--were younger than 5-years-old. We also know that in early childhood the pace of growth is phenomenal and the window of opportunity for healthy development is ephemeral.
