By Dr. Stefanie Christian, Timeless Laser & Skin Care
A lot of patients come to me complaining of sagging, crêpe papery skin on their upper eyelids, fine lines under their eyes, and crow’s feet next to their eyes. For these issues I use a fractional CO2 laser, the very best non-surgical treatment for sagging and thin, delicate skin.
A series of these treatments tightens and smoothes the skin on the lids and around the eyes, leaving the eyes looking more open and brighter, with lovely, youthful-looking skin surrounding them. For fine lines, Laser Genesis is an excellent choice. A series of painless, non-invasive treatments helps build collagen to sm ...

If you’re reading this article, chances are you’ve heard of probiotics—the good bacteria that live in your gut and provide enormous health benefits. That’s the easy part. The hard part can be finding the right one that’s right for you; one that actually improves symptoms like those of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or yeast overgrowth. Today, I want to make your choice much simpler.
According to Vital Choice dietitian Nicole Gould, RD, LD, “The Raw Probiotics line from Garden of Life are the best and most effective probiotics I’ve seen for people suffering from IBS symptoms, yeast infectio ...

By Dr. Chrys Constantinou, Westlake Dental Associates
An important part of the Hippocratic oath that all U.S. dentists and physicians recite on graduation day is, “Do no harm.” While national and state guidelines are important for maintaining a clean and healthy dental environment, ask your dentist if he or she is taking extra measures to ensure your safety.
Digital X-rays produce sharper, crisper, and more diagnostic images of your teeth and jaws with a fraction of the radiation. They are also easier to copy or email. Besides getting a smaller dose of radiation, digital X-rays will be more likely to catch small problems and diseases when they are easier and che ...

By Mike Ventresca, Vital Choice Healthstore
Two important questions we’re often asked about fish oil supplements are: What does fish oil do for the body, and, what’s the difference between eating fish and taking a supplement? 
Fish oil contains a variety of nutrients called essential fatty acids (EFAs). “Essential” means we need these nutrients and that we must get them from our diets, as our bodies do not make them. The main EFAs in fish oil are called omega-3, but there are many others (more on that in a minute). The research-validated benefits are too numerous to mention but include: heart (cholesterol and triglycerides), brain (memory and mo ...

By Mike Brady, Michael Brady Co.
Too many people are afraid to dream. They fear they won’t be able to make their dreams come true, or that they are out of reach and therefore not worth thinking about.  
But I’m here to tell you that given enough time and with a little faith, patience, and discipline, your dreams can come true. All you need to do is to believe and take action by creating a plan and sticking with it.
Do you dream of financially assisting in the education of your children or grandchildren? How about having all your debts paid off and having an adequate emergency fund of cash in the bank? And dare you dream of an ever-increasing retire ...

How much fluoride is too much?

Category: Health & Beauty

By Dr. Chrys Constantinou, Westlake Dental Associates
When used appropriately, fluoride is both safe and effective in preventing and controlling cavities.
Fluoride actually benefits our teeth in three different ways: First, fluoride applied topically (varnishes, rinses, toothpastes) provides a “shielding” layer that strengthens the natural calcium of your enamel and buffers against harmful acids. Second, fluoride blocks the metabolism of many bacteria that cause cavities. And, third, fluoride that is ingested during the time of tooth development actually gets “built in” to the structure of the teeth.
While there is overwhelming evidence abou ...

By Jay Minkin, Minkin's Music
Is this heaven? There is something very cool happening at the historic G.A.R. Hall in Peninsula, located in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley. Thanks to the vision and labor of love of Karen James Walters and the Peninsula Foundation, a new concert series called “Voices In The Valley” is taking place on Friday evenings and select Saturdays showcasing acoustic Americana music from local singer/songwriters and touring musicians.
You may have driven past the building, which sits at the corner of Route 303 and Riverview Road, hundreds of times. The Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) Hall was originally built in 1850 as a one-room school ...

Botox and dermal fillers: What’s the ...

By Dr. Stefanie Christian, Timeless Laser & Skin Care
I often get asked about the difference between Botox and dermal fillers. Botox is a paralyzing agent that temporarily stops or decreases the movement of a muscle that is linked to the overlying skin and causes wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and horizontal worry lines in the forehead. Botox injections soften or eliminate these wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are used for several purposes. They are used to smooth permanent creases, such as nasolabial folds (corners of the nostrils to the corners of the lips) or marionette lines (straight down from the mouth corners). There are also new fillers that can be us ...

Q: What prompted you to go into the hair industry?
Jaime: As a kid I always loved playing with hair, no matter whose it was. At the age of seven I French braided my cousin’s hair and to this day we still do not know where I learned how to braid. A few years ago I was visiting my grandma and she mentioned that she needed a haircut, so I picked up an inexpensive pair of scissors and gave her a trim. Three weeks later I decided to enroll at The Aveda Brown institute.
Q: What is your specialty? 
Jaime: I would say color, but I’m also in demand for special-occasion styling and braids. 
Q: What new styles can we expect for spring? 
Jaime: As far ...

By Gary Jones, Ideal Pest Control
Nothing shuts down the fun of an outdoor activity like someone getting stung by a wasp or yellow jacket. Especially in the spring, when we see plenty of nests in, on, and around homes.
The best way to protect your family is by preventing stinging insects from nesting near you. And the best way to do that is with a structural power spray, which is not the same thing as a pressure wash.
At Ideal Pest Control, we spray your house with appropriate products designed to kill insects and prevent them from nesting. We spray the entire structure, including peaks, eaves, windows, soffits, shutters, corner posts, doorways, handrails, and wher ...
