As we step out of winter and roll into spring, I look forward to longer sunlight hours in the evening. We spring ahead on March 9th, Daylight savings time. I sure have enjoyed the cooler weather; I hope it lasts a little longer! With this issue we celebrate St. Patty’s Day, Passover, Easter and approach the most popular season for weddings. Be sure to take a glance at our Wedding Planner page. Speaking of weddings, I am excited beyond words. My oldest son will be marrying his beautiful fiancée this April. My heart is filled with gratitude as I feel God’s blessings all around. It has truly been my pleasure to bring to you, our readers, not only quality businesses but also, “feel good” content. I thank all those who have shared with me your appreciation of what Better Living & Marketplace has to offer. I also thank the loving souls that give their time to make our Features and Columns possible. Working with and getting to know the quality individuals who make up this community is very fulfilling. What a treat to be toured through the Heathcote Botanical Gardens on an absolutely flawless day in February! If like me, you have not taken the time to enjoy the public display of nature’s beauty right here in St. Lucie, just get a little insight on what you’ve been missing. I will not reveal anything further here as Joanna Johnson has done a great job depicting our experience and details about this non-profit organization & property.

I love when I get special requests to publish community events. Keep them coming. People want to know what’s going on around the area. That reminds me~How many counties can say they have a stadium for baseball’s spring training? Not too many, but we can! How about heading out to the ball game while the Mets are in town? One more thought before I sign off… We’ve all heard of Spring Cleaning, but how about we do some cleaning of our own essence? I invite you to join me in making an effort to be mindful of our neighbors and our own selves. “Trust God. Clean house. Help others.” And smile!

Sunday, March 30th, 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. Put on your best tropical outfit to attend Floriday - a celebration to benefit Restoration House which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to giving people with life controlling problems like drug or alcohol abuse, illiteracy or poverty, the tools to re-enter society in a productive way. This festive fundraiser celebrating recovering lives will be held on Sunday, March 30th from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. at $100 per person. Suzanne Varn, Tonya Mills and Sally Chapman are co-chairs of the planning committee. This Floriday fundraiser will focus on the work and life of Don Blanding, the “Vagabond Poet” and author of the book “Floridays”. He was married to Dorothy Putnam in the 1940s and lived in Ft. Pierce. His work inspired Jimmy Buffet’s 1986 album Floridays. Dress will be Florida/Hawaiian with pineapple-inspired décor, food and Buffet music. The setting is on the grounds of a historic home in Fort Pierce where guests can mingle under graceful old oak trees or explore landscapes of lush plants native to Florida. “We are thrilled to welcome as our guest to Floriday 2014 the noted historian and biographer Thomas Markle. Tom will be reading poetry from Don Blanding’s “Floridays” book which was written in Ft. Pierce in 1941,” says Sally Chapman. A surprise event also awaits guests, courtesy of ART MUNDO, a school and gallery of regional art and artists located in the SunTrust building in Downtown Fort Pierce.

Their slogan is Redeem, Restore, and Release. Women and men find a new way of life and re-enter society as productive citizens through drug education, life skills training and employment. It is the only long-term (12 month) residential program of its kind in the surrounding five county Treasure Coast Region. Restoration House is licensed by the State of Florida through the Department of Children and Families and has staff licensed as clinical social workers, primary counselors and certified addiction professionals. The organization is a member of the Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Foundation and is certified by Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

s you enter the Ft Pierce property of Associated Coastal ENT Physicians nestled among the welcoming oak trees and climb the stairs of the lovely wraparound porch you immediately feel at ease. It’s a warm comfortable setting where you will be greeted by professional, courteous staff (in person or on the phone). When Dr. Richard B. Allen established his ENT practice in 1982, he was the first Board Certified Otolaryngologist in St Lucie County. As this area grew, so did the need for more partners. Dr. Christopher Slack, Board Certified in Otolaryngology, Sleep Medicine and Facial Plastic Surgery, wife Valerie and their two children joined Dr. Allen in 2002. Dr. Michele Richards, Board Certified in Otolaryngology, joined Associated Coastal ENT in 2004 (with husband Ken and 3 children). Dr. Slack and Dr. Richards are both Assistant Clinical Professors at FSU. All Physicians are heavily involved in community activities, education, art and sports.

and amazing resource with 25 years of Allergy specialization providing a variety of Allergy work ups, Skin End Point Titration and Rush therapy.

Recognizing their community’s explosive growth the Physicians & Doctorate level Audiologists have jumped in with both feet into the beautiful Gatlin Blvd area of Port St. Lucie. Conveniently located a mile east of the new Tradition Hospital, they have opened up a new, full service Ear Nose & Throat office. It is right across the street from Sams Club. They accept most insurance plans, Medicare, credit cards and checks.

Associated Coastal ENT also specializes in general swallowing problems, voice disorders, head and neck cancer, skin cancer and reconstructive surgery. They also add cosmetic surgery, Botox and facial fillers to their list of impressive services.

Let Better Living & Marketplace St. Lucie Magazine explain why you and your family need to know about Associated Coastal Ear, Nose & Throat Physicians services and their philosophy. Some of the biggest ongoing complaints in Florida are allergies, sinus issues, & sinus

To sum my overall experience visiting both locations a little quote comes to mind, “It’s never crowded on the extra mile”! Associated Coastal ENT, even after all these years, continues to exceed expectations, and go the extra mile first time, every time!

One Physician’s approach to modern medicine

By Annett M. Robbins CEC, ELI~MP

Patients&Doctors

The food we eat can either be the safest most powerful form of medicine... or the slowest and deadliest form of poison!

practicing medicine the old fashioned way

Ann Wigmore

All right, I’ll admit that statement seems a bit heavy, but it doesn’t have to be! March is National Nutrition Month, when healthy habits are all the buzz. Healthy habits are encouraged and promoted, along with the importance of good food choices and physical activity. We are celebrating in OUR home with the theme “Nourish the Whole…Mind, Body and Soul” because ‘HEALTHY THINKING’ really is a Choice. After all, to be Happy, Healthy and Fit is not a fad or a trend...it’s a Lifestyle! It is not just about eating clean, but also Thinking Clean. It’s about transformational change, in most cases – changing the way we talk to ourselves, the way we look at ourselves. At its essence, it is the way we communicate in challenging situations and the way we look at our beloved food. It’s really about becoming a kinder person to one’s self and to everyone else! Now this self-kindness thing may seem a bit like a foreign concept, definitely not a common practice. But with some commitment and conscious effort, it really can be done. The ripple effect is usually kind of Awesome! Now throw in some pretty Rockin’ Side Effects like Sparkling Eyes and Heightened Clarity, Luminous Skin, and a Freer Mind, Renewable Energy, Surprising Productivity, Enhanced Relationships and even better Quality Sleep and you’ve got a pretty potent formula for some Serious, Sustainable, Stress-less Success! Please ponder this for a moment…

“Art is long; life is short; opportunity is fleeting; judgment is difficult; experience is deceitful.”

Your Life will flourish when your Mind, Body and Soul are nourished with Healthy Thoughts, Habits, Patterns and Nutrition! Most people are unaware of the amazing positive benefits of our common everyday food and the correlation between it and our mood!

- Hippocrates. Aphorisms This quote attributed to Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, written about 400 years B.C. Remains vibrant and significant today as it was then.

[ CINAMMON ] is a natural blood sugar regulator that metabolizes sugar and carbs in the body and improves energy levels after meals! [ ROSEMARY ] increases blood circulation to the brain, improving mood and relaxation. It is an excellent aid to people combating anxiety and depression. It is also highly beneficial for asthma issues as it opens our breathing passages, too!

RENTALS • SALES • SERVICE

[ BASIL ] is the easiest stuff in the world to grow. And did you know it’s also a natural mosquito repellant? Place it on a counter, a pass through or just outside a door that’s in frequent use and say goodbye to those pesky pests. It makes an amazing refreshing detox concoction because it is extremely effective with easing stomach issues and digestion difficulties!

Rental Vehicles for all occasions New, used and reconditioned Mobile service for most repairs

“Sometimes in the waves of change, we find our true direction”

[ CELERY ] contains active compounds that help relax the muscles around the arteries, allowing the vessels to dilate and providing more space for the blood to flow at a lower pressure. So, consuming this light green beauty daily can actually help you kiss high blood pressure goodbye!

These tasty little tidbits of information are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, folks. Food is our Fun, it is our Pleasure, it is our Obsession and it could very well be our “Medicine” instead of our “Poison”. We just N e w WLet’s a v vow e CtoOmake A C “Peace H I N Gwith need to open our minds and our plates to the Immense Natural Possibilities! our Palates”. And remember, we really are what we eat.

WHAT MAKES MODERN MEDICINE RELEVANT? When you think about great medical achievements of the modern age, comes to mind our profound advances in molecular understanding- analysis of DNA, amazingly complex testing, early detection of cancer, use of effective medications to allow a heart to beat stronger. Progress is exceptional. Yet, the more significant achievement is spelled in a much simpler way: KEEP MAKING PEOPLE HEALTHIER. This requires investment in a concept we call “continuity-inspired medicine” to create an environment where people can request and receive a personalized care for their medical problems, from the patients initial concern, to being able to access a doctor in a timely manner, to receiving appropriate treatment; A PATIENT-PHYSICIAN PARTNERSHIP.

B A G E L B R O T H E R S O F N Y. C O M

WHAT MAKES OUR PRACTICE RELEVANT? In our practice we strive to answer two questions every time: How can I help you feel better? How can I help you live longer? WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM YOUR DOCTOR? Interest in humanity (the secret of caring for patients is caring for patients). An attentive individual with honesty, enthusiasm, optimism. Respect people, healthy or ill, regardless of who they are. Support patients and their loved ones when and where they are needed. Promote health as well as treat disease. Embrace the power of information and communication technologies to support people with the best available information, while respecting their individual values and preferences. Always ask courteous questions, let people talk, and listen to them carefully. Give unbiased advice, let people participate actively in all decisions related to their health and health care. Assess each situation carefully, and help whatever the situation WHAT DO I OFFER TO OUR PATIENTS? A measure of compassion, curiosity and humility and the commitment in each encounter to give what they need that day as an offering of conversation, friendship and hope. 772-337-7811 www.DrSiperstein.com 10377 S.

Bass Pro Shops

OIL CHANGE SPECIAL

A trip to Port St. Lucie’s Bass Pro Shops on Gatlin Boulevard is not just another of your routine errands. There is just too much to see and do. For instance, as I pulled into the parking lot the Saturday before Super Bowl, my eyes were drawn skyward. The Florida Forestry Division’s helicopter was landing just a few yards away. The forestry personnel were anxious to show off their prize, used regularly in St. Lucie and the surrounding five counties for aerial wildfire suppression. The chainsaw sculptor nearby shared that this particular copter had been shot down twice in Vietnam but now has been completely and reliably rebuilt. Speaking of the chainsaw sculptor, his artwork is phenomenal. The demonstration of creating a sailfish from a seasoned log was nothing short of breathtaking. I then moved on to try my hand in the Daisy BB gun shooting range. Two of my three shots actually hit the paper. I’m no threat to burglars, but I was pleased regardless.

Buy. Host. Join In March 2004, Scentsy founders Heidi and Orville Thompson put scented wickless candles on a new course. Today, they want to say thanks.

As I entered the store, I was given a sample of turkey freshly deep fried, a bag of popcorn and a chance to win one of several gorgeous gift baskets in their hourly drawing. Once inside, how fun it was to see the scuba diver inside the massive fish tank, somersaulting and posing for high fives against the glass with the children. Other inside events included an African safari seminar and a fly tying & casting class.

Heathcote Botanical Gardens I f you’re like me, you’ve seen the sign at Savannah Road a hundred times as you’re traveling northbound on US 1 in Ft. Pierce. And like me, you’ve probably said to yourself “I really have to go there sometime”. I finally did and am happy to report it was a most enlightening, educational and pleasant experience. Heathcote Botanical Gardens is an oasis of sensory and visual pleasures just waiting to be discovered, or perhaps rediscovered, by you. Open to the public since 1986, the five acre setting is continually changing and evolving – a truly living museum of native Florida trees, flowers and shrubs - and home to many exotic species. The story of Heathcote parallels the story of St. Lucie County and its twentieth century

development. The site was first developed by Mollie and Jim Crimmins who moved their Heathcote Nursery down to Savannah Road from Orange Avenue in 1960. Seven years later, they moved their charming residence to the Nursery from Delaware Avenue. The house was built in 1922 and is a marvelous example of Victorian Florida architecture, complete with a second floor piazza for catching a breath of ocean breeze.

In 1986 the Crimmins decided to retire and Heathcote Nursery, a non-for-profit organization, was purchased with funding from private donors, the City of Ft. Pierce, St. Lucie County, and the State of Florida. L I V I N G

Some of the Crimmins’ projects have survived to this day, including a terraced Japanese Garden. It now sports a stunning replica teahouse, compliments of an ambitious Eagle Scout, and continues to be the scene of many picturesque weddings.

private donors, the City of Ft. Pierce, St. Lucie County, and the State of Florida.” Over the years, some of the special gardens opened include the Herb Garden, the Palm Walk, the Bamboo Trail, and the Rainforest. A particularly magical place is the Reflection Garden, a shaded hideaway with benches and a gurgling pool. It is the perfect place to spend a tranquil afternoon with a good book. And if you’re lucky, one of the Garden’s five resident “therapy” felines will join you on the bench for a little catnap. In 2009, one hundred tropical bonsai trees were given to Heathcote by Bonsai Master James J. Smith of Vero Beach. Mr. Smith is renowned for developing several bonsai from several tropical species, including the willow leaf ficus and the dwarf jade. Grant money was secured the next year to build a sensational Bonsai Gallery, where these creations can be viewed “in the round”. Each specimen is perched on a pedestal made of native capstone, harvested west of Okeechobee. Heathcote strived to use only native Florida materials in this exhibit. This particular exhibit is now considered the largest public collection of tropical bonsai in the entire country.

The spots fill up quickly, so call early to book. The children love the opportunity to be outside and to do so many fun activities. Heathcote has an active staff of volunteers – 75 regulars and another 75 for special events and community “ambassadorships”. But people come and go and there is always a place for you, should you decide to join the ranks of the “Cohorts”. Fundraising is ongoing and constant at Heathcote, a necessary function of a private organization. One of their biggest annual events, the Bonsai Ball, will be held this year on March 29th. Over 200 attendees will be treated to a spectacular evening of “Culture and Fine Cuisine, Entertainment, Tours, Raffle and Live & Silent Auctions”. Tickets are still available.

Why go raw?

From Weekend Cruises to around the World Cruises, including River Cruising! Escorted & Independent Tours both Domestic and International.

By Joanne Augusto, owner of Nutrition World

For many years I have been telling people to increase their vegetable consumption, sometimes easier said than done.

IS A FULL SERVICE TRAVEL AGENCY ALASKA CRUISE AND TOUR PRESENTATION

Unfortunately for most other than the occasional corn and iceberg lettuce Americans consume very few vegetables. I remember when I went to school (too many years ago to mention LOL) they considered French fries a vegetable. The new government guidelines recommend an average of 3 cups of vegetables a day depending on your age and sex. I think it should be more, preferably 6 cups a day.

The benefits to eating more raw produce are endless. Let’s start with the mere fact that vegetables have an ability to produce an alkaline environment. Most all other food with the exception of some fruits is acidifying. Stress, sugar, medications and processed food are disastrously acid. We need to eat raw vegetable to get our bodies in balance. When we do not live a balanced lifestyle which includes fresh vegetables, rest and exercise it will become acidic and the blood will have to compensate and rob alkaline minerals from parts of the bodies like our bones. The standard American diet is already deficient in minerals so the body will start becoming weak.

It is very easy to eat more vegetables. We have an amazing variety to satisfy any palate. If you are a veggie newbie start slow, even one tablespoon a day is better than none. If you need to mask the veggie taste with sweet fruits do so but keep in mind that you should try each week to cut back on the sugar (even if is from fruit). If I serve a sauce to my kids I always blend some organic kale and mix it in. Also the dark organic greens are so healthy you can feel a difference in your health with just a ¼ cup a day.

Consuming more vegetables also gives our digestive system the fiber it needs to move toxins out of our bodies through our bowels. The list of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are extremely high in vegetables. They also have a high water content which is needed for all bodily functions. Most people exist in a dehydrated state not realizing how much better they would feel if they consumed more water.

Thankfully all these new fancy blender commercials, (my favorite is the Nutri Bullet) are showing us convenient and affordable ways to get more nutrition into our day.

You should try to consume local or organic produce. Raw or lightly steamed is best.

For thirty years, with the help of their children and grandchildren, they successfully ran the operation. A little over two years ago, the Brancaccio family bought Isabella’s over on Bayshore Blvd. and moved all of their operations over there. The new name became Bella Roma Italian Market and Bakery. It was a very savvy and aggressive business move. But they soon found the demand for their delicious breads and pastries was more than the smaller backroom operation on Bayshore could handle. The bakery shop in the back room of their original Roma is huge and easier for maneuvering people and large trays. The answer was obvious. Reopen the Rio Mar location as a satellite, put brothers Albert and Sal in charge and start re-using that back room to meet their customers’ wants and needs. Another VERY smart business decision, and certainly a popular one with all their loyal customers. Stop by today and extend a handshake and a hearty Welcome Back. And while you’re there, pick up a loaf of the absolutely sinful Monkey Bread. Loaded with cinnamon, raisins and walnuts and crusted with sugar, it is not only delicious just warm and fresh out of the oven but toasted and buttered for many mornings afterwards. Business Hours Mon - Thu: 8:00 am - 9:00 pm Fri - Sat: 8:00 am - 10:00 pm Sun: 8:00 am - 3:00 pm 475 Riomar, Port Saint Lucie, Florida 34983 (772) 343-7404

Restaurant Operations Manager Ricardo Robinson said the PGA’s decision to implement a Casually Elegant Americana theme dinner last fall has been very well-received. Thanks to the great execution of Chef De Cuisine Juan Serrano and his Culinary team. You may dine either in the Grille Room or out on the terrace overlooking the 18th hole of the Wanamaker Course. For dinner, try the arugula salad coupled with the lobster mac & cheese. Or dive into one of their sumptuous entrées such as the Cedar Plank Maple Glazed Salmon or the Flat Iron sirloin steak topped with a truffle gorgonzola cream sauce. Save room for dessert! Our server, Nicholas, states the White Chocolate and Hazelnut Semi-Fredo rivals his Italian grandmother’s. No higher praise than that! I urge you to come on over the bridge. There’s rarely a wait and the food is GREAT! Hours of Operation: Monday-Saturday 6:30am-9:00pm, Sunday 6:30am-6:00pm 1916 Perfect Drive, Port St. Lucie, FL 34986 * 772-467-1300 ext. 117

BERRY FRES H C A FÉ Five years ago this month, owner Tim Timoteo had a vision – to open a cheerful family restaurant that would not be mediocre, but rather, amazing! His ‘recipe for success’ included using farm fresh organic ingredients and hiring only quality, NICE people. He even personally makes several trips a year to bring down gorgeous tomatoes and tree-ripened peaches from north Georgia. His soups and muffins are homemade. He features Rainforest Alliance coffees and herbal teas. He serves only Natalie’s local Indian River orange juice. His grits are made with whole cream and his oatmeal with fresh milk. Dine either in or outside on his recently covered patio. Well-mannered dogs may join you there. Yes, stop in soon and wish Tim a happy Fifth Anniversary! Berry Fresh Cafe Is open everyday!

From the Inside Out In today’s highly visual world, looking good is much more highly valued than feeling good. I have devoted my life’s work to changing this thought process in every person I meet. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy looking “Healthy” but to what means will I go to achieve that? Looking young and vibrant and healthy should be a fantastic side effect of feeling good. Building and maintaining your fitness should be the goal. That is why regular exercise, balance diet, plenty of sleep and sessions of quiet restorative bodywork are essential to creating beauty. Don’t let what you consider beautiful be influenced by companies trying to sell you a quick easy fix. I have news for you… There is none. Beauty and fitness comes from within. They are developed through a daily commitment to making yourself better.
