This time of year it's easy to get there! October is slower for business. Kids need school things. It's easy to fall behind just a little in your mortgage payment. Then a little more. Before it gets out of hand, meet my friend Lisa Page. Lisa Page is a mitigator for US Loss Mitigation and Stop Foreclosures Assistance. Lisa is a kind and wonderful person who wants to help you save your home. Here's her story.
With foreclosures at an all time high, interest rates gone through the ceiling and government supposedly unable to do anything about it, many homeowners are in dire straits trying to make ends meet and stay financial ahead of the home mortgage game.
According to FT.com, housing foreclosures doubled in September with 223,538, a 99% increased compared to a year ago. Adding that mortgage banks have stated an increase of late mortgage payments, the online magazine is citing that this housing trend is nowhere near an end.
The impact this trend has had nationwide has reflected in a depressed economy as well as large corporate businesses such as Countrywide Home Loans to reduce the number of employees creating a depressed job market as well.
According to Lisa Page of US Loss Mitigation and Stop Forclosure Assistance, this does not have to be the case. “Sometimes it means just having someone help you get current again without having to acquire huge late fees and interest to get back on track”, says Page. “Often a homeowner can bring their payments current with the equivalent of one payment versus what’s now due, past due with late fees and interest”.
“There are ways we can help a homeowner get their mortgage problem solved often in as little as 30 days”, she says. Page’s company allows a homeowner to work within their current mortgage bank and prevents a homeowner from being faced with some unpleasant alternatives such as having to sell, rent or lease the property or having to borrow money. “Often that places a homeowner in a difficult financial situation when they may already be struggling”.
Accredited by the Better Business Bureau, US Loss Mitigation and Stop Forclosure Assistance offers free consultation and no application fees. “We also have a 98% success rate”, adds Page. “We are designed to assist you in getting current with your payment, retain your home and see what we can do to save your credit standing.”
Page is afraid that people don’t know that this type of assistance is out there. “I met a lady the other day who said she could have kept her home had she known this was an options”, says Page. Page also emphasizes that the time to contact her is before a home goes into foreclosure. “If you start to get behind 30-60 days, that’s when you need to call me”, she says. Waiting longer may not provide Page’s company the time it needs to reverse the situation.

FNP Believes Preventative Care is Key
La Grande, Oregon: A Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) takes on several roles as a health care provider. In many instances they need to discern what is beneath the surface even if the patient doesn’t volunteer the information.
Renee Edwards, FNP, owner and founder of Village Health Care located at 1215 Washington Avenue in La Grande has found a passion in early detection and preventive health care, with a specialty in pre-diabetic diagnosis. “Often I can tell before any testing, that that person is in a pre-diabetic state,” says Edwards. She correlates the current diabetes epidemic with the rise in obesity.
Not a condition to be taken lightly, Edwards stresses that the results once a patient goes into a full-blown diabetic state are not desirable. “Diabetes damages nerves and vessels, harming the eyes and organs. It is a major cause of heart disease and stroke, blindness, amputation, candida and other skin infections, and kidney disease.” Edwards believes that preventive health care before the onset of disease is essential in warding off suffering down the road.
Edwards begins a diagnosis by collecting patient history and risk factors, observation, and testing, to determine a patient’s current health status. She feels that it’s important to assess the situation and weigh the advantages and disadvantages of employing various types of treatment. Helping patients understand their care is also an important factor. “For example, I want to help them see that taking preventive medication does not necessarily mean that they are sick,” she adds. “Many of us already take vitamins and minerals for preventive health. Some of us need a bit more.”
Along with endocrinology issues, Edwards also likes to focus her practice on other chronic health conditions, mental health and skin problems. “My favorite thing is to figure it out,” says Edwards. “Many illnesses aren’t easily diagnosed and I like that challenge.”

Wow what a tearful plea. I am a huge animal lover. I support so much that these organizations do for the good of animals. But I have to say that I think this organization went way too far. They alerted the media and the police when the arrived to seize the dog. I use the hard word "seize" because that is what it seems they did. They took the little pooch as if it were an illegal alien being harbored by law breaking aiding and ebedding criminals. It's a dog. It's a dog that got a good home with loving people. Inspect the home if you must. Though ridiculous, charge Ellen a readoption fee if you must. But give the dog back to a family that loves and cares for it.

Nationally renowned physician Dr. Christiane Northrup is to appear on Oprah on Tuesday, October 16th. Long respected for her information on women's health issues, what you may not know about her is that she is a strong proponent of USANA products. In a recent letter, she lays claims to the health benefits you can receive from using USANA Nutritionals. If you would like a copy of this letter, email me and I'll forward a copy of it to you.
not one but two incredible OPRAH shows this fall! The first show is
scheduled to air on Tuesday, October 16th and features Dr. Northrup
one-on-one with Oprah--who confesses (among other things!) that she keeps
her copy of THE WISDOM OF MENOPAUSE next to her bed! Tune in for the fun,
fears and the facts of being 35- plus, as Dr. Northrup debunks the myths of
menopause and offers hope and health to the millions of women who are
entering (or in!) what can be the most confusing, but also what she calls
the most dynamic and exciting part of their lives.
The second show, scheduled to air later in the fall (date to come, we'll
keep you posted), is another must -see show where Oprah and Dr. Northrup go
one-on-one (as only they can) to answer a full hour of audience
questions-including the ones you were sure they'd be afraid to ask! It's a
fun, frolicking and informative hour about your body that you won't want to
