Danger at the rear exit

By Dr. David Gutman, Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists
By now you’re likely familiar with the signs and symptoms of hemorrhoids, but are you aware of the potential dangers of ignoring them?
I’d like to offer two critical reasons why anyone experiencing the burning, pain, itch and bleeding associated with hemorrhoids should consider scheduling an appointment with me right now.
1) The symptoms of hemorrhoids can mimic other things, such as fissures, infections and even anal cancer. There’s a lot of overlap between the symptoms of hemorrhoids and those of anal cancer. Ignoring your symptoms might mean allowing a cancer to grow to the point where it is ...

By Jay Minkin, Minkin's Music
Before the digital computer age and MTV, there was one magazine that covered music and pop culture like no other. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate 50 years of Rolling Stone Magazine with a major exhibit that opened on Friday, May 5.
Founded in San Francisco in 1967 by Jann Wenner, who is still the magazine’s publisher, the magazine became a key voice from the “Summer of Love” through many generations thereafter. The list of journalists who have hung their hat with this publication is endless and includes Ralph J. Gleason, Hunter S. Thompson, Cameron Crowe, Lester Bangs, P.J. O’Rourke, Ben Fong-Tor ...

Dermal fillers turn back the hands of...

By Dr. Stefanie Christian,Timeless Laser and Skin Care
Do you look older than you feel? Many patients after the age of 45 begin to notice their faces seem to be “drooping” and creases such as their nasolabial folds (the corners of the nostrils to the corners of the lips) and marionette lines (straight down from the mouth corners) look deeper. Injectable fillers are an ideal solution for these concerns. 
As we age, we lose volume in our cheeks, lips, chin, jaw line, tear troughs and hands. Fillers can be used as volumizers, replacing this lost volume and giving the face and hands a more natural, youthful appearance. 
Certain fillers actually bu ...

Dining outdoors in Northeast Ohio

By Sean Lackey, Gandalf’s Pub & Restaurant
While many Northeast Ohioans travel to places down south for sunshine and warmth, there is no reason to leave home during the summer when outdoor patios play host to al fresco dining and libations.
Snuggled under a canopy of trees overlooking the city’s main street, Gandalf’s Pub & Restaurant’s charming patio seats up to 50. And an adjacent all-season room provides additional seating with an outdoor vibe.
In the true sense of a pub, Gandalf’s is a neighborhood gathering place serving libations and hosting live music on weekends. From beer on tap to fancy raspberry swirl martinis to Iri ...

How to host the perfect outdoor party

Category: Food

By Niko Moulagianis, Niko’s Bar & Gyros
For the enjoyment of guests and the sanity of the hosts, the best summer parties must have the following elements:
• Easy, efficient set-up. Excruciating planning and long complex setups can take the fun out of the party before it even starts.
• Sensational food. Think of your rides home from other people’s parties. Chances are the first comments—good or bad—were about the food. It’s what people will remember. Unless the host’s drunken relative made a spectacle of him- or herself. Then the food comments come second. 
• Engaging entertainment. Keep people occupied. Nobody wa ...

By Sandra Jenkins, Dog Gone Crazy
To many of us, our pets are just like our children. Many pet owners worry about their beloved babies while they’re on vacation, often leaving them in the care of a trusted family member or friend who knows they will care for them as if they were their own.
Extended vacations and trips over the summer season keep everyone busy and away from their homes and responsibilities. When it comes to your pet, you shouldn’t have to worry about them receiving excellent care while you’re away.
Located on a sprawling six-and-a-half acre property, Dog Gone Crazy offers a luxurious vacation getaway for your furry friends. Ou ...

Help for aging skin

Category: Health & Beauty

By Mike Ventresca, Vital Choice Healthstore
I must admit, the title for this article is slightly misleading. Not only does the focus of today’s column improve aging skin, it has also been shown to reduce inflammation, support eye health, improve arterial health and much more.
So really, the headline, ‘Help for Aging Skin,’ is selling this nutritional powerhouse more than a little short.
Astaxanthin (pronounced “asta-Zan-thin”) is the naturally-occurring carotenoid found in algae, shrimp and salmon among others. Called the “king of carotenoids,” astaxanthin has significant antioxidant activity. In fact, as a free radical sca ...

With a new president in place, many people are wondering about the future of the Affordable Care Act. As of this writing, nothing has changed and we are still functioning under the guidelines as they were written. In all likelihood, however, change will happen. I’d like to invite you to get vocal now about how you’d like to see those changes take shape.

Beyond the burn...and itch

Category: Health & Beauty

By Dr. David Gutman, Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists
Most people don’t know there are many different symptoms that can be caused by hemorrhoids. Typically we associate the presence of hemorrhoids with itching and burning, but symptoms can include a number of other things, too. 
Aside from the burn and itch, another common indicator is an inability to get clean after bowel movements. You may wipe, wipe and wipe but still not get clean. You might even find it’s difficult to stay clean because you’re experiencing leakage. The leakage may consist of stool, mucous, and may even be tinged with blood.
I have some patients who have experienced bleedi ...
