Building wealth: What’s your safety net?

Category: Smart Living

By Terry May, The May Group
When your kids jump on a trampoline surrounded by poles and netting, they’re protected from injury and a trip to the emergency room. Pulling the stopper on the bathroom sink before putting on jewelry prevents something you love from going down the drain. And locked doors at night deter would-be intruders from invading your personal space.
There are all kinds of safety nets in our lives designed to protect us from peril. At The May Group, we offer a safety net that protects people from the potential hazards of investing in the stock market.
For clients who invest in an employer-sponsored 401k plan, we tell them to contribute only up ...

Bone broth's healing benefits

by on 02/17/2017 - 12:13 pm
Categories: Food, Health & Beauty

By Mike Ventresca, Vital Choice Healthstore
Have you heard of the latest trend in healthy eating? It’s actually less of a new breakthrough and more of a return to ancient eating—bone broth.
Bone broth is basically a slow-cooked soup stock. That is, it’s typically simmered for a very long period of time (often in excess of 24 hours), with the purpose being not only to produce gelatin from collagen-rich joints but also to release minerals from bones. Studies are finding that due to its comprehensive nutritional profile, which includes important amino acids, minerals, collagen, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine and more, bone broth can enhance and heal the di ...

Put hemorrhoids behind you

By Dr. David Gutman, Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists
Timing is everything, especially when it comes to treating hemorrhoids. So how bad do your hemorrhoids have to be before you seek relief? 
Many people are under the misconception that they need to be in full on “suffer mode” before coming into my office. Unless the pain, burning, itching, bleeding and inability to get clean is all consuming, they don’t think their condition justifies treatment.
I’d like to suggest a different approach.
The reason to treat your hemorrhoids before the symptoms occupy any real space in your mind is to avoid those symptoms altogether. Instead of ...

Are varicose veins hereditary?

by on 02/17/2017 - 03:02 pm
Categories: Health & Beauty, Smart Living

By Dr. Sonja Stiller, Center for Advanced Vein Care
If you have spider veins or varicose veins—including visibly bulging, twisted veins—there is a good chance that someone else in your family does, too. In about 95% of cases, these venous health issues are indeed hereditary. If a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle has or had varicose veins, it’s even more important for you to stay on top of your vein health.
If both of your parents suffered from varicose veins, chances are that your own veins are already compromised.
To maintain proper blood flow, veins must remain “elastic,” and just like an over-stretched elastic waistband, veins can ...

What happens to hearing after 40?

Category: Health & Beauty

By Patricia Nugent, Contributing Writer
In July 2016 we introduced you to Advanced Audiology Concepts in Mentor. The response from Mimi readers was so fantastic we thought we’d chat with founder Dr. Jane Kukula to discover more developing innovations in the fascinating field of hearing.
Q: What are the signs I may be developing hearing loss? When should I get my hearing checked out?
A: Since the process of hearing loss is gradual—like a dimmer switch that’s slowly being dimmed—it’s difficult to detect.
Some people hear ringing in their ears, others humming or clicking. They might begin to feel the people around them are mumbli ...

Precision neck lift

Category: Health & Beauty

By Dr. Stefanie Christian, Timeless Laser and Skin Care
As we age, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin, which causes thinning, sagging, and wrinkling. Our necks are often the fist area to show these signs of aging. In this digital age of “selfies” and social media, we often see photos of ourselves that others have taken, in which double chins and the dreaded “turkey waddle” can make us look older than we feel.
Plastic surgery takes skin that is already thin, stretches it thinner and cuts off the extra. A more holistic approach is to thicken the skin by building collagen and elastin, and to restore a more youthful neck and jaw contour with o ...

There are few undertakings in life as precarious as the college search. Parents and students are plunged into uncertainty and a mountain of paperwork...complicated forms, deadlines, testing dates and preparation, researching potential colleges and then planning college visits.
My job in the career development department at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center is to provide programming to parents and high school students to help them through the transition to college. Twelve years ago, when my own child was a sophomore in high school and we were starting to feel overwhelmed by the mountain of documents coming our way, I came up with a system to or ...

Roger Hoover’s “Pastures”

Categories: Arts & Entertainment, Community

By Jay Minkin, Minkin's Music
There are several guitar gunslingers around Northeast Ohio, but there might not be one better than Roger Hoover.
A troubadour who early on had toured America with bandmates or alone, lately the talented songwriter has passed on chances for a life on the road away from his family life in Kent, Ohio. Time has passed, and, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Hoover was signed by Last Chance Records to hopefully push him to the next level once again with the release of Pastures on Friday, October 7.  
Hoover, along with producer Ryan Foltz, took a very organic and spontaneous approach to recording the album. If you listen clo ...

Do you love your family enough to pla...

By Mike Brady, Michael Brady & Co.
How dare I ask how much you love your family, right?
I’m sure you love them more than anything in this world. You love them enough to provide for them, care for them and support them.
You love them enough to create an emergency savings account to cover unexpected expenses that might threaten their security. What if the roof blows off, or the hot water tank quits, or the car needs new tires?
You love them enough to save money to assist them in paying for their continued education after high school. You don’t want them to accumulate a crushing pile of debt getting the education they need to succeed, so you h ...
