The 10th Annual Women’s Health & Fitness Expo is more exciting than ever this year. Our theme, Healthy Ulster, will focus on getting families moving, eating right, and thinking differently about health. An initiative of the Women’s Health and Fitness Foundation, HEALTHY ULSTER was conceived to help families create, nurture and maintain attitudes about health that will make good lifestyle choices inevitable. Healthier families mean a healthier community and that means a healthier Ulster County, with the ultimate goal to make this the healthiest county in New York State. What does that mean? More than the reduction of disease, Healthy Ulster promotes choices that result in a life that is not only longer but also richer and happier. Healthy Ulster recognizes that modest changes can have a profound effect on a family’s health. The Women’s Health & Fitness Expo offers some of the tools for change and Healthy Ulster promises long-term support. The Expo speaks directly to women because, traditionally, women are the ones who make most of the decisions affecting the family’s health. But every family is unique. If the person who guides the family’s health buys healthy food, prepares healthy meals, eats less, laughs more, makes sure to have regular physical examinations, makes physical exercise part of every day, is seen to take time to relax… the family’s habits will change. Your friends will see the results – weight loss, increased energy, fewer colds, for starters – and ask how you do it. It starts with the individual and extends to the family. Pretty soon the entire community is committed to being as healthy as possible. Every effort you make to support health while you’re still healthy pays off in the long run with fewer serious illnesses when you’re older. And guess what? You’ll have fun in the process. Come to the Expo. Enjoy yourself. Indulge your curiosity about how the health of your mind and body are connected. Take the day to visit hundreds of local, regional and national health experts and to explore all the ways you can begin living a healthier lifestyle. Listen to our inspiring speakers. Take home a wealth of information and literature to help get you on track. Help fulfill the promise of Healthy Ulster; you’ll feel good about feeling good! Dr. Karnasiewicz is Founder and Director of the Women’s Health and Fitness Foundation and Expo. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and a specialist in women’s health. She writes and lectures on issues relating to women’s health.

Ric Orlan d o’s G i ve Yo ur Fe e t T h e “ S t a r Tre at m en t ” 15 STEPS TO FABULOUS SUMMER FEET

BY DR. MICHAEL C. KELLER Dr. Michael C. Keller, a founding partner at Hudson Valley Foot Associates in Kingston and a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association, provides recommendations to help get feet ready to make their debut for the sexiest shoe season of the year.

Pampering Prep 1.

2. 3. 4.


Fill a basin (large enough to soak both feet) with warm water. Check the temperature (using the inside of your wrist) before soaking feet to be certain the water temperature is not too hot. Place the basin in front of a comfortable chair. Remove nail polish with non-acetone polish remover. Prop one foot at a time on your lap; grasp the foot and slowly moving your thumbs from the top of your toes to the bottom of your heel and back. Repeat this stroking technique as many times as you like. Use a nail clipper to cut toenails straight across. Then, use an emery board to smooth the nail edges by filing in one direction. Dr. Keller says, “When toenail edges are rounded it increases the chances for painful ingrown toenails to develop, so be sure to cut toenails straight across.”

Soothing Soles 6. 7.

Soak feet in the warm water for at least five minutes. Raise feet out of the basin and dip either a foot file or a pumice stone into the water. Next, use the tool to gently smooth the skin around the heel, balls and sides of feet. 8. Use a scrub and massage your entire foot and lower leg. Remove with a damp towel. 9. Use a fresh towel to pat feet dry; be sure to dry between each toe. While drying, loosen foot joints by cupping heel with one hand at the ankle and grabbing the top of foot with the other. Then, rotate foot slowly at the ankle a few times in each direction. 10. Massage an emollient-enriched skin lotion all over feet. Use thumbs to apply extra pressure to the ball of foot and arch. Then squeeze Achilles tendon, one foot at a time, for five seconds; repeat two - three times. 11. Gently push back cuticles with a cuticle pusher or manicure stick. Never cut cuticles.

Finishing Touches 12. Remove moisturizer from toenails and in between toes with soap and water. “If the moisturizer remains in between your toes, it can increase the likelihood of developing a foot infection like Athlete’s Foot,” says Dr. Keller. “The retained moisture also promotes nail fungus, which is a discoloration and thickening of the toenail.” 13. Nail polish should only be applied to healthy nails. Dr. Keller states, “nail polish locks out moisture and doesn’t allow the nail or nail bed to ‘breathe,’ so people who suffer from already discolored toenails will aggravate their condition by not allowing their nails to be exposed to the air.” When worn, it is always advisable to remove polish regularly. 14. Before bed, very lightly wrap cellophane around each foot; this locks in moisture. By morning, feet will feel soft. 15. Continue to keep feet healthy all season long by applying waterproof, oil-free sunscreen every time you slip on your favorite pair of sandals or go barefoot at the beach.


Light and summery, the emulsion has the consistency of luscious soft butter, but is actually made with tofu and olive oil! Serve with a green salad or grain salad on the side for a complete meal. •

4 5 oz center cut portions of Wild Sockeye or King Salmon

1 cup white wine

4-5 peppercorns

1 bay leaf

2 medium shallots, peeled and finely chopped

1/2 cup Pecan, shelled and roughly chopped

1 small can artichoke hearts

1 lemon cut in half

1/2 small block tofu- about 1/4 cup

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 small bunch dill, stems reserved, tops roughly chopped salt and pepper to taste Preheat oven to 400. 1. Spread the pecans evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for 6 minutes, or until nutty golden. Reserve. 2. In a heavy pan add fish filets, juice of half of the lemon, wine, peppercorn, a pinch of salt, bay leaf, stems from the dill and enough water to cover fish. Remove the fish. Bring pan to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and gently arrange the fish back in the pan. Cook very gently, barely simmering for about five minutes. Turn off heat and allow fish to rest in the warm broth until serving. 3. To make the emulsion, rinse the artichoke hearts and put in a food processor with the remaining shallot and chopped dill. Puree well. Add the tofu and juice of the remaining lemon half. Puree for for an entire 60 seconds. With the machine running, add the olive oil slowly until it is incorporated. Let the machine run for an additional 2 minutes to make it very fluffy. 4. Place the fish on an attractive plate and spoon a heaping tablespoon of the artichoke emulsion onto each plate. Sprinkle with toasted pecans. Yum!

Randy suggests “bracing,” or stiffening your mid-section as though someone is about to punch you in the belly, daily. When you do this, you will feel your abdomen, waist and low back muscles tighten and stiffen. Research has shown that this simple maneuver dramatically protects the lumbar spine – providing immediate, better stability for lifting or performing any challenging activity. Your back will thank you by becoming more resilient and injury free. Join Randy on the Main Stage at 2:00.

BY DIANE HENDERIKS, R.D. Many people believe that eating healthy is expensive and time consuming. The reality is that healthy eating can easily be cheap and quick. These difficult economic times do not mean that we have to sacrifice our health in order to eat. Healthy eating can fit into your budget with careful planning and a little effort. Preparation and planning are the keys to healthy eating! Here are six easy tips for economic eats: 1. Local, seasonal fruits and veggies are many times less expensive than those you would find in the grocery store. Buying produce by the bag instead of individually is usually cheaper and puts more fruits and veggies in front of you to eat at home. 2. Proteins like chicken, fish, pork and beef are not cheap but there are some ways to save a buck. Buy the large, family packs and when you get home place them in separate bags for each meal – bulk packs are always cheaper than smaller packs. Don’t buy pre-seasoned or marinated proteins because you are paying for someone to do that for you. Season, rub and marinate yourself for an economical and healthier way to add flavor to your food – you will be in control of the salt, fat and sugar, which is always better! 3. Make extra portions of what you prepare for dinner to pack for the kids’ lunch the next day – saves time and money! 4. Check the store circulars and websites for coupons. You can save a lot of money! 5. Buy generic items and store brands which are most often less expensive than name brands. 6. Try to have a meatless meal at least one day per week. It is a recommendation that I have always asked of my patients and clients (regardless of the economic situation). Legumes (beans and such), grains and soy based products are inexpensive and healthy! 7. My philosophy is to purchase foods that are as close to their natural state as possible, which means the least processed with no added sugar, fat and salt.

Racing Toward Change Ed Brantley & Heba Salama

Ed Brantley and Heba Salama, Season Six winners of The Biggest Loser, are racing toward change… Two years ago, we weighed in together at over 600 pounds. For us, it was a symptom of a lifetime of loving food, unhealthy eating and a sedentary lifestyle. We had tried a handful of times to become healthier and lose weight, but somehow we always failed. I wasn’t sure anything would ever change; I knew it was going to be almost impossible to lose over a hundred pounds.

“Changing our lives after The Biggest Loser was where the real struggle began. Keeping the Then one day, we got our break. We were selected to be on NBC’s hit reality show The weight off was a Biggest Loser. We would finally have the chance to change our lives! new challenge.” g

Each day brought new lessons, about ourselves and the new lives we would be living. Experiencing it together was special and allowed us to support each other through the six-month journey. We succeeded in many ways, failed countless times, and for once in the battle of weight loss, didn’t quit when it got hard; we got back up and kept going, vowing to make the failure a lesson learned instead of a setback. This was something we had never done before. Previously, failing at weight loss meant quitting. Once we learned how to deal with failure, I knew we were in for the long haul. We had finally had our “aha” moment and conquered something I had only dreamt about. I was going to lose the weight! Nothing felt better than the night of our finale, having the highest percentage, breaking records, and seeing the successes of all our cast mates, who had become part of our family. We had all made the commitment to our families and the people that looked to us for inspiration to be an example of healthy living. Changing our lives after The Biggest Loser was where the real struggle began. Keeping the weight off was a new challenge. No more weekly weigh-ins, just more accountability. Going to the gym became tedious and boring. If you don’t love what you’re doing, you will either be miserable, or you won’t do it. Obviously not exercising isn’t an option, so we constantly struggled with ways to enjoy it. At our first major race last summer, alongside 12 other Biggest Loser alums, we caught the race “bug.” Racing would be what saved us from going back to old habits and would keep us in shape. In all our races, we compete only against ourselves. We run, bike or swim for the people we used to be – they are never far from our minds. We don’t race to be the fastest, we race to finish, to inspire and to change. We race for the chance to show one person that if we can do this, he or she can, too. Join Ed and Heba on the Main Stage at 12:00.

In February 2007, Kara Richardson felt like the most powerful woman on the planet. She was completing the final stretch of an amazing weight-loss journey by hiking to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and, in the process, raising $12,000 for AIDS orphans in Africa through an online donation page. But that feeling faded just a few months later, when Kara became pregnant — and her old eating-for-comfort habits returned. She used all the pregnancy excuses: “I’m eating for two!” “Dieting is a no-no.” After daughter Anna arrived in February 2008, breast-feeding — and its calorie-burning benefits — was Kara’s fallback excuse for continuing to eat a lot. The new mom, just shy of 300 pounds, also hadn’t resumed her pre-pregnancy walking regimen. “I was overwhelmed with being a mom and working,” Kara says. “Taking care of myself took a backseat.” In a slump, Kara asked herself, How can I get myself out of this and moving again? She remembered how she’d felt on Kilimanjaro. “When I reached the peak, my legs were like jelly and I was light-headed, but I had tears rolling down my face from the sense of relief and elation I felt,” she says. “Throughout the training, it was empowering to be working for a cause bigger than myself. I couldn’t come up with excuses to skip the gym when a child in the world was relying on me for fresh water and a

chance.” This compassion was innate and deep-rooted. As a child, Kara had doodled pictures of orphanages; years later, she organized service projects in school. After reflecting on her Kilimanjaro experience, Kara came up with a solution: The Save the World Diet. During each month of 2009, she’d participate in a physical event for charity. Her exercise changed each month to help her train for the next event; for the 220-mile Hershey’s Tour de Pink bike ride for breast cancer, for instance, she went full-force with spinning classes. The causes were often personal — she walked the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon for the American Heart Association to honor her dad, who has heart disease. A few activities bordered on wacky: During February’s Penguin Plunge for Special Olympics, she jumped into icy Lake Champlain. “Every event wound up giving me something,” Kara says. “The plunge provided some fun, whereas walking the marathon helped with my endurance and the bike ride brought out courage.” Meanwhile, she worked sponsored by

on eating solid meals — three a day, plus two snacks — instead of grazing mindlessly. Now 25 pounds lighter, Kara just completed her final charitable event of 2009: her second climb up Kilimanjaro for the Global Alliance for Africa orphans. But she keeps her eye on the cause, not the scale. “I feel so much stronger physically, spiritually, and emotionally, and I know that having a cause in front of me is something I need to stay healthy for life,” Kara says. “I won’t lose sight of that again.” Join Kara on the Main Stage at 3:00.

VITAMIN D, THE MIRACLE VITAMIN BY DR. CRAIG MOSS - DIRECTOR, MEDICAL ASSOCIATES OF THE HUDSON VALLEY, P.C. What do osteoporosis, coronary heart disease, sudden cardiac death, hypertension, colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, asthma, Type I and II diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, muscle pains and weakness, memory loss, depression, and difficulty with balance have in common? Recent studies demonstrate that they may be related to vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency is common, affecting 35% of young, healthy adults and more than 50% of the elderly.


How do we get vitamin D? You obtain vitamin D by either manufacturing it from your skin when you are exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from the sun or by ingestion of vitamin D. The further north you live from the equator, the less exposure you have to UVB rays. The older you are and the darker your skin color, the less vitamin D your skin will be able to manufacture from the sun. Certain foods like the “fatty fish” (salmon, sardines, mackerel, and tuna) cod liver oil (some of my older patients remember when they were required at school to take cod liver oil) and egg yolks are naturally rich in vitamin D. Other foods like dairy products, infant formula, cereals and orange juice are often fortified with vitamin D. How do you know if you have a vitamin D deficiency? Vitamin D deficiency is diagnosed by a blood test that checks your body’s level of vitamin D. However, since vitamin D only lasts three weeks in your body, its level can vary depending on how much sun you have recently received and how much vitamin D you have been ingesting. It had previously been recommended that people take vitamin D 200-400 units a day; however, many physicians now believe that, especially for people living in northern latitudes, we should be taking 1,000 to 2,000 units. There is a danger of taking too much vitamin D and getting vitamin D toxicity, so you should check with your physician first. Another way to get vitamin D includes exposing your arms and legs to the sun for 15-30 minutes twice a week, between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm, when the UVB rays are most intense. You do, however, have to be mindful of skin cancer. You can also eat foods rich in vitamin D, being careful to avoid eating too much of the larger fish which may have a high mercury content. Our ideas about vitamin D have come a long way since when we thought its only role was in bone metabolism; now we know that vitamin D affects almost every part of our body and is essential to maintaining good health and longevity. If you would like to learn more about vitamin D, join Dr. Moss on the Main Stage at 10:00. Your Family Is Worth It! • Heating Oil

Most of us have questioned at times whether we have what it takes to succeed—whether our maximum potential is predetermined (hardwired) in our brains, or whether we have the capacity to push ourselves beyond our perceived limitations. In The Winner’s Brain, Harvard-trained brain experts Jeff Brown and Mark Fenske -- along with top health writer Liz Neporent -- use cutting-edge neuroscience to show how you can “train” your brain to perform at a higher level— to be successful, however you define success.

SCREENINGS The first step in taking good care of your body is knowing exactly what is going on with your physical being. The Expo is offering free screenings that take a look at the condition of every system in your body. You’ll learn where you are now and what potential risks might be present. This important information will help you make good use of the various workshops, seminars and demonstrations at the Expo. If you have further questions about any of the screening results, you can visit one of the many specialists who will be available for a private consultation at ‘The Doctor Is In’ booth. All of this is free, because we believe prevention is the best protection against disease, and that information is your best ally. GENERAL HEALTH
