Hospital Survival Guide
Lifestyle expert and radio host Moll Anderson opens up about a personal family health crisis she endured. Five years ago, Moll’s stepson, Chase, suffered a stroke when a blood clot from his leg traveled up through his heart and into his brain. When doctors were unable to dissolve the clot using medication, Chase underwent surgery to remove it. While the surgery was a success, it was just the beginning of Chase’s recovery. Moll and her family spent weeks in the hospital, doing whatever they could to support Chase and be there for him in his time of need. She says it was a very stressful and devastating time for her family.
From this harrowing experience, Moll learned several tips and solutions to make a hospital stay easier for family members and friends who are supporting a loved one admitted for medical care. Learn her six tips for surviving a hospital stay.
Stool Squad House Call

Treating Joint Pain
For nearly one in three adult Americans with joint pain, simply getting out of a chair can be a very painful experience. Dr. David Katz, chief medical advisor for Direct Digital, LLC, joins the show to discuss how joint pain develops and how a new supplement, Instaflex, is helping sufferers reduce inflammation and, most importantly, fight pain.
“It’s our joint that gives us motion,” Dr. Katz says. “It’s where bone meets bone.”
When healthy, your joints are lined with cartilage, which stabilizes the bones and creates proper spacing and cushioning. With injury, wear and tear and age, however, cartilage can be damaged, causing pain. Dr. Katz explains that a new supplement called Instaflex has been shown in clinical trials to effectively relieve discomfort, improve flexibility and increase mobility for people suffering from painful joints.
Dr. Ordon emphasizes that, “If you have an injury, or if your joint pain is accompanied by swelling, redness, tenderness or warmth around the joint, be sure to talk to your doctor.”
