Aaron Lee Tasjan blazes

By Jay Minkin, Minkin's Music
There is excitement with the music coming out of East Nashville. A new wave of singer/songwriters is channeling the outlaw spirit, crafting stories of relationships, trains and alcohol. I first caught wind of Aaron Lee Tasjan by simply being at the right place at the right time, attending an Americana Music Association showcase in 2014.
The kid from New Albany, Ohio was one of the highlights of that entire week, so I hitched onto his Indiegogo bandwagon last November and his debut album In The Blazes was released on Tuesday, October 6.  
The 29-year-old began by playing in garage bands until joining the high school jazz ensemble. ...

By Mike Ventresca-Owner, Vital Choice Healthstore
We’ve all experienced pain.
In fact, it’s the primary reason people seek the advice of health professionals as well as turn to complementary and alternative medicines. Whether acute or chronic, too often the first reaction for those experiencing pain is to reach for pain-reducing medication. Unfortunately, these drugs bring with them a slew of side effects.
The most commonly used medications, the NSAIDs like aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) can cause intestinal tract ulcers and other problems.
We’re often asked if there’s a natural option to relieve pai ...

Walk on Christmas Day

By Dr. Sonja Stiller, Center for Advanced Vein Care
If you’re getting together with loved ones this Christmas, try a new family tradition: a Christmas Day hike.
A long walk in the morning not only builds your appetite for the feast to come, it gives you a chance to spend quality time with family—to talk, to listen—without the distractions of televisions and cell phones.
Or, take your hike in the afternoon to walk off all of that ham and mashed potatoes. You’ll be surprised how much more energetic you’ll feel afterwards compared to falling asleep in front of the TV.
Of course, not everyone can walk long distances because they s ...

By Dr. David Gutman, Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists
With Thanksgiving having just passed by, I’ve been reflecting on the things I’m most thankful for. I’m thankful for my family…that my children and wife are healthy and happy. I’m thankful that I still have my parents, both of whom also enjoy good health. And I’m thankful to have been privileged to earn the trust of thousands of patients over the last decade, helping them enjoy better health by finding relief from the burning, itching, pain and bleeding associated with hemorrhoids. 
Thankfully, I can help you, too. 
If you are living with hemorrhoids, my question is, ...

Do spider veins signal a more serious...

By Dr. Sonja Stiller
Center for Advanced Vein Care
Although we most commonly associate varicose veins with the legs, technically abnormal veins can occur anywhere in the body´╗┐.
Why are legs the worst culprits?
Let’s get to the cause, much of which is gravity working against us. A varicose vein is weakened because it has stretched, pulling apart the valves that pump blood back to the heart. So instead of blood going where it’s supposed to, upward, it leaks downward, pooling in already weakened veins, causing them to stretch even more. That’s why almost all problem veins are below the level of the heart.
The result is bulging veins that af ...
