    Dr. Christiane Northrup - Glorious Women Never Age! Dr. Northrup has always counseled that health isn't just for the young. Now, in response to thousands of requests from readers, radio show listeners, lecture attendees, and fans from all over the world, she has turned her attention to the subject of women and aging - and once again, proves to be a fearless thinker, pioneer and author whose work is always based on impeccable research.
    In her newest PBS special, Christiane Northrup, M.D. visionary pioneer and one of the world's leading authorities in the field of women's health and wellness, takes on the topic of "aging" - and turns it on its head! She challenges the most popular but least helpful perspectives on women's "aging," replacing the notion of decline and decrepitude with the profound understanding that growing older means an increase in wisdom and value. Dr. Northrup skillfully collects and interprets research from astronaut studies, eldercare, the fields of sexuality, orthopedics and other areas, and combines them with her own clinical and life experience. The result is 7 Steps that every woman should take in her journey to getting older - without aging. The special was taped at Boston's Calderwood Pavilion, in front of an audience of wildly enthusiastic Northrup fans!

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG
