Women’s health a lifetime concern By Shelley Koppel For Forever Young

There is a wonderful scene in an “All in the Family” episode where Edith Bunker is going through what she calls “the change.” Archie, sensitive as ever, looks at his watch and tells her she has one minute. When that minute is up, he says, she'd better have changed! If only if it were that easy. As we get older, we just can’t seem to get away with the things we did when we were younger. If we’re up at 2 a.m. now, it’s probably because we can’t sleep or have been making trips to the bathroom. The body we thought we knew has been changing and sometimes we feel as though we don’t even recognize it as our own. It’s like having an out-of-body experience. As women get older, there are special health concerns. Osteoporosis, or brittle bones, affects women far more then

it affects men. As estrogen levels decline, so does bone mass. Estrogen also protects most women from heart disease, and as women age, the incidence of heart disease increases dramatically. Rates of hypertension and diabetes are also increasing in older women. Breast cancer is always a concern for women and age is a risk factor. Early detection remains the best way to make this dreaded illness a chronic condition until a cure is found. Women also find that their bodies let them down in a variety of ways, from weight gain to hot flashes to night sweats and irritability. Quality of life suffers and quality of life is important whatever the age. It’s not just something to be dismissed because you’ve gotten older. If your health care provider has that attitude, it’s time for another kind of change. See WOMEN’S HEALTH, 22

bones about it Osteoporosis and bone health are important topics as women age By Shelley Koppel Associate News Editor

STUART — Falling is part of being a kid. Usually, you get a Band-Aid and a kiss. If you break a bone, you get a cast and lots of attention. Unfortunately, as we age, falling and breaking bones become much more serious. The weakening and breaking of bones is called osteoporosis. Dr. Darrell Fiske, a Stuart rheumatologist, treats many women with osteoporosis or those at risk of developing the bone-thinning condition. While he recommends a baseline bone density test at 65 if there are no risk factors, and 60 if risk factors are present, he said that many patients have the test earlier. “They have the test to be proactive,” he said. “They may have a family history of osteoporosis or hip fracture, or may take medications such as prednisone that increase risk. In addition, if they’ve had fragility fracture, where they have a simple fall and break an arm, it’s a good idea to get a baseline bone density test earlier.” While women are taking calcium supplements in increased amounts, Dr. Fiske urges caution. “Excessive calcium supplements may lead to increased cardiovascular

risk,” he said. “People probably do take too much. The recommended amount includes daily intake from food. “Women over 50 should take 1,200 mg, but a cup of milk has 300 mg and a carton of yogurt can have 300 mg. You need to look at what you’re getting in orange juice, green vegetables and dairy and make up the rest in supplements.” Calcium absorption is essential for bone health and vitamin D has been shown to help with absorption. The government recommendation for women over 50 is 600-800 I.U. for vitamin D.,” Dr. Fiske said. “Most of us think many of our patients need more, because they are Caucasian and fair-skinned and tends to get less sunlight, a source of vitamin D.” For patients who may have low levels, there is a blood test to check it. For those whose vitamin D level is low, Dr. Fiske prescribes the vitamin in the 1,000-2,000 I.U. range. Many medications are available to treat osteoporosis. Some are oral and some injectable. Dr. Fiske is particularly excited about a new one, called Prolia. “It is injected twice a year and it works on the biology of osteoporo-

Chef lived upstairs, downstairs By Shelley Koppel Associate news editor

STUART — Pauline Tiffany has lived upstairs and downstairs. As the daughter of a Member of Parliament, Stanley Tiffany, in her native England, she played with children from the royal family. Determined to forge her own path, she was the only woman in a culinary school and the only woman in hotel management at her first job after college at the Grand Hotel in Leicester, England. Later, Ms. Tiffany married an American and moved to St. Augustine. While her two marriages did not survive, she made a successful career co-owning Bon Appetit restaurant in Stuart; catering; and working as private chef to the Palm Beach’s wealthy, including rock star Rod Stewart. Now, Ms. Tiffany, 74, is battling lung cancer. At first, she wanted to leave the stories for her three sons, who include Paul Billington, a teacher at Hobe Sound Elementary School, and her

grandchildren. Friends persuaded her that her tales about the rich and famous would be interesting to everyone, and with their help, she put down the details of her exciting life in a book, “Ms. Tiffany’s Palm Beach: Above Stairs to Below Stairs.” Ms. Tiffany grew up during World War II, when the quality of food was not as important as getting it. “Food was food, even if it was all dried,” she said. “We couldn’t get decent food for 10 years after the war ended.” After her father’s political career ended, Ms. Tiffany’s family purchased a café. Her table center display there won her a place at the all-male Huddersfield Hotel and Catering College. “I was the only women in my class,” she said. They didn’t take females. Why spend money on a female when she is only going to go off and get married? I proved them wrong. I kept up with cooking, catering and hotels.” In addition to reminiscences about her life, her book contains recipes of

everything from wartime specialties such as fried Spam bites and sardine pate on toast to some of her favorite cocktail party recipes. She has added a sheet with the recipe for the kind of cake Prince William requested at his wedding. He remembered it from his childhood. “It’s a recipe everybody did differently,” Ms. Tiffany said. “It was for children in the nursery. It was so easy to do. You didn’t bake it and kids could mush it and get their hands in it. You always had something like it at nursery tea.” Ms. Tiffany often catered parties in Palm Beach with the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in attendance. “They were quite snobs,” she said. “They were freeloaders who came to Palm Beach to party and expected not to pay. Hostesses wanted them because then they had royalty. It cost the hostess a fortune. The Duke and Duchess wanted their own way. They had their own plans and menus and never said ‘please’ or ‘thank you.’” Ms. Tiffany was a good deal fonder

of another client, Rod Stewart. “He was very nice and down-toearth,” she said. “He used to come into the kitchen while I was cooking and he was eating the whole time. We Pauline Tiffany used to laugh and sing and play with the children. He was so sweet.” Ms. Tiffany has seen the world from upstairs and downstairs as few have, and she has enjoyed her time at both ends. It is difficult to choose which she preferred. “It’s six of one and half a dozen of the other,” she said. “I guess living the ‘upstairs’ life is always better.” To purchase a copy of “Ms. Tiffany’s Palm Beach,” call her at (772) 631-7751. The cost is $14.95 plus postage. For more information, visit the website www.Paulinetiffany.wordpress.com

AWARENESS SAVES LIVES October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when women are reminded that prevention and early detection are the keys to health By Shelley Koppel Associate News Editor

STUART — Breast cancer is frightening. There are few women who don’t worry about the disease at some time on their lives. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2011, there will be approximately 230,500 new cases and nearly 40,000 deaths. While men, too can develop breast cancer, the overwhelming number of cases occur in women. There are many myths about breast cancer. Even young girls have heard the one about not bruising or bumping the breast because it can cause cancer. (It can’t) Breast cancer isn’t contagious, either. You can’t get by using deodorant or antiperspirant. Most importantly, every lump is not breast cancer, but every lump should be taken seriously. There are some real risk factors for breast cancer. Some, such as age, age of first menstruation, age at menopause, breast density and family health history are beyond anyone’s

control. The American Cancer Society also notes that there are some factors that women can control that may well help prevent breast cancer and other cancers, too: Maintaining a normal weight Increasing physical activity Reducing or eliminating alcohol Not smoking Eating a diet with plenty of fruits ands vegetables Being aware of family history and personal risk factors Having regular check-ups and screenings Nicholas Iannotti has treated many area breast cancer patients. A graduate of Georgetown University School of Medicine, he completed his training at North Shore University Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

What you should consider when choosing or changing your Medicare coverage Source: www.medicare.gov • Coverage - Are the services you need covered? • Your Other Coverage - If you have other types of health or prescription drug coverage, make sure you understand how that coverage works with Medicare. If you have employment-related coverage, or get your health care from an Indian Health or Tribal Health Program, talk to your benefits administrator or insurer before making any changes. • Costs - How much are your premiums, deductibles, and other costs? How much do you pay for services like hospital stays or doctor visits? Is there a yearly limit on what you could pay out of pocket for medical services? Make sure you understand any coverage rules that may affect your costs. • Doctor and Hospital Choice - Do your doctors accept the coverage? Are the doctors you want to

see accepting new patients? Do you have to choose your hospital and health care providers from a network? Do you need to get referrals? • Prescription Drugs - What are your drug needs? Do you need to join a Medicare drug plan? Do you already have creditable prescription drug coverage? Will you pay a penalty if you join a drug plan later? What will your prescription drugs cost under each plan? Are your drugs covered under the plan’s formulary (drug list)? • Quality of Care - The quality of care and services given by plans and other health care providers can vary. See the “Resource Locator” for more help comparing plans and providers. • Convenience - Does the plan include the doctors you see and the pharmacies you use? Can you get your prescriptions by mail? Do the doctors use electronic health records or E-prescribe?

• Travel - Will the plan cover you if you travel to another state? If you’re in a Medicare plan, review the Evidence of Coverage and Annual Notice of Change your plan sends you each year. The Evidence of Coverage gives you details about what the plan covers, how much you pay, and more. The Annual Notice of Change includes any changes in coverage, costs, or service area effective as of January 2012. If you don’t get an EOC or ANOC, contact your plan. Editor’s note: On the following pages are a list of local Medicare plan providers and companies that offer prescription drugs under Medicare Part D. Remember, the Medicare open enrollment period begins earlier this, from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. For more information, visit www.medicare.gov or call (800) 633-4227.

GO AND DO The Inn on Fifth, located on Fifth Avenue in Old Naples, is an elegant getaway just a few hours’ drive from Indian River County.

A wonderful weekend retreat in Naples Publisher, Forever Young

Living in paradise has its advantages, but how often do we actually take advantage of living in paradise? Living on the east coast of Florida puts us within two to three hours of some of the most famous landmarks in the world. Some of us actually live in these landmarks, such as the Kennedy Space Center here on the East Coast, but our busy lives and other responsibilities keep us from really experiencing what paradise and a few hours on the road has to offer. If one of these weekends you get the urge to go out and explore, let me suggest you make the trek to the west coast of Florida. It’s only two to three hours away, depending on where you are and how you go, but whole different Florida awaits you. A recent weekend getaway found us in Naples — old Naples to be exact — at the newly renovated Inn on Fifth.

Located in the heart of quaint and historic Fifth Avenue, this authentic Naples boutique hotel greets guests with Mediterranean archways, private terraces and signature pineapple finials. A recent half-million dollar refurbishment gives the hotel a fresh look reminiscent of 1920s Palm Beach architect Addison Mizner. The marble tiled lobby and Roman columns immediately set the mood for an elegant stay. Located in the heart of the historic shopping district, you are within walking distance to hundreds of upscale boutiques, antique shops, gourmet restaurants, sidewalk cafes and one-of-a-kind art galleries. At night dozens of clubs and live music options await you. We did not get back into our car until we decided to take a tour of some of the neighborhoods of the local “rich and famous.” They don’t seem to have heard that we are in a recession over in Naples. One of the biggest collec-

tions of million-dollar properties can be found in the surrounding neighborhoods. A short stroll away are the famous white sandy beaches of the Gulf. The weekend we were there couldn’t have been better for spreading out the blanket and people-watching. The Inn on Fifth features 87 spacious guest rooms, some overlooking the pool located on the second-floor courtyard. Others, like our room, have balconies with fabulous views of Fifth Avene. There are two on-site dining options: Truluck’s Seafood, Steak and Crab House and McCabe’s Irish Pub and Grill. We took advantage of both. Each was wonderful and could keep you happy and on site for your whole stay if leaving this magnificent hotel for a meal is more than you can handle. We did not take advantage of the third-floor “Spa on Fifth” or the fitness center, but we think these will have to be a must-do on our next trip

over. For a weekend getaway, it was a perfect trip. It was a beautiful hotel with a very professional and courteous staff that was friendly and helpful, and all of it only a few hours away.

Genealogy starts with yourself

W

hen starting a family history, always start at the beginning, with yourself, assuming you are tracing your own family. You will need a pedigree chart. A pedigree chart is a chart of the direct line of your ancestors. A copy of this chart can be found on the Internet, at your local library genealogy department, or from any genealogy nut you might know. This is the skeleton of your genealogy puzzle. You are No. 1 on the chart, your father and all male ancestors are even numbers, female ancestors are odd numbers. On this chart will be recorded the name, birth, marriage and death dates and locations of each person. The second form you will fill out is a Family Group Sheet for each marriage on your Pedigree Chart. On this form is all the information about this individual family, including their marriage date and location and all known children. Children are listed in order of birth

with the oldest listed first. Always list dates in a consistant manner. This avoids confusion. The next step is to gather all the information you know about yourself, children, parents, grandparents, etc. Photos, birth, marriage, death certificates, Bible and newspaper records, etc., are all pieces of the puzzle of telling the story of each generation in your family. These are the pieces of “proof” that are needed to make your family history come alive and be taken seriously. Oral histories from Aunt Josie and Uncle Bill are wonderful and need to be included, but legal and hand written documents that will back this up. They will definitely be needed if

you decide to join any hereditary organizations such as the Sons or Daughters of the American Revolution, Colonial Dames of America, etc. Just keep in mind from the very beginning, that you need to get copies of these documents, and make good notes of where and from whom, any information came. Contact other family members, interviewing the oldest living relatives. Often, casual conversations about family and their memories of aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents, and where they lived, died, old stories, etc., will reveal a wealth of information. Using a recording device is a great way to get this on record without having to obviously interview someone, writing everything down. Relaxed conversation is the key, as this brings out the stories, good and bad, and often family photos and mementos will follow.

Boomer women are looking good these days

S U D O K U P U Z Z L E

LAND LINES DAN SMITH but the unpredictable evolution of cellulite. Many studies have been undertaken to attempt to find a cause, but so far the scientific community cannot agree on whether cellulite comes from poor diet or lack of exercise. Strangely, being overweight does not guarantee you a dimpled behind, nor does being thin make you exempt. As a keen observer of the female form, I believe it to be more to do with our modern lifestyle. A hundred years ago, nearly 90 percent of the American population was involved in some type of agriculture. Today it is around 2 percent and shrinking. Think about that.

Farming the way it was done in the past was a difficult life. Those who can remember will tell you that those farm women had no cellulite. Never even heard of it. Progress, especially technical progress, has afforded us an easier lifestyle. If cellulite is the

price we must pay — so be it. One thing is certain, today’s woman of 50-plus years is more attractive than at any time in history. Attractive and strong. Unwilling to stand by and be humbled by their husbands trading for a younger model, modern ladies are quick to regroup and find a younger partner of their own. Older women with younger men have prompted a whole new meaning to the word “cougar.” Confident and looking good, the Boomer ladies have changed the clichéd identity of the elderly divorcee. They are now a force to be reckoned with and the men are loving it. Hollywood has embraced the mature woman like never before. No longer relegated to playing the part of a matron or dowager, today’s older women of the cinema can draw See BOOMER, Page 17

n their youth, the Baby Boom generation pushed a reluctant nation to embrace physical fitness. Before the post World War II kids came of age, exercise for the sake of exercise was an unheard of concept. By the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, America’s youth was pushing for healthier diets and their televisions were filled with workout programming. Now as the Boomers ease into their golden years, it might be interesting to take a look at how well they fared. Many of us consistently added 3 to 5 permanent pounds per year, and once past 50 are surprised to find that we were overweight. Some of the women found that the added weight attached itself to that portion of their anatomy that enters a room last, while the gentlemen are able to always “watch their weight” beacuse it is right out in front. One of the most perplexing problems for women is not weight at all,

The roots of breast cancer are still unclear, Dr. Iannotti said. They undoubtedly include a combination of environmental and genetic factors. What is clear is the importance of early detection. “Women should have a screening mammogram at 40,” he said. “Sometimes it should be earlier, if there is a family history. You want to pick it up early and mammography is still the basic tool.” He said that digital mammography is the standard and an abnormality should be confirmed with an ultrasound. Breast self-examination or BSE has been questioned in recent years, but Dr. Iannotti said that it is still an important tool in the detection arsenal. “You have to know your own body,” he said. “You know what’s normal for your body and if there are any changes, you should let your physician know. The survival rate with early detection is very good.” For older women, there may be some special challenges in treating the disease, including other illnesses such as heart

disease, stroke and diabetes. “There are some treatments you won’t use with heart disease,” Dr. Iannotti said. “With peripheral neuropathy, you can’t use the taxanes. You need to select treatment to go along with the medical history.” There are also treatments, some older, some new, that have greatly reduced the risk of breast cancer recurring. Tamoxifen has been around for a long time, but a newer class of drugs, known as aromatase inhibitors, that include Femara and Arimidex, stop the production of estrogen in post-menopausal women. The medicines are taken daily in pill form, just as you’d take blood pressure medication. For Dr. Iannotti, the word is hope. There is real hope for survival when breast cancer is found early. There is even hope that women with metastatic disease can survive. “Even women with incurable breast cancer can live years with a good quality of life,” he said. Dr. Nicholas Iannotti practices at Hematology Oncology Associates, 501 S.E. Osceola St., Stuart. Call (772) 223-5982.

Frequent UTIs problematic for many women Urinary tract infections are a common bacterial infection that women can experience. Some women have frequent UTIs, which doctors may characterize as chronic. When UTIs occur repeatedly, they can be a cause of stress and embarrassment. Recurrent urinary tract infections are defined as having at least two infections in six months or three infections in one year. Statistics indicate that once a woman has had two UTIs, she is 30 percent more likely than another woman to experience a third or fourth. Eighty percent of women who have had multiple UTIs will have recurrent episodes. UTIs occur when bacteria that is on the outside of the genitals or comes from the digestive system enters the urinary system through the urethra. Sometimes the body can remove the bacteria on its own. In other instances, the bacteria are too strong and a full-blown infection in the bladder or kidneys may occur. At this point, antibiotics might be

necessary to rid the bacteria from the system. Symptoms of UTIs include burning or itching while urinating, the feeling of having to urinate frequently, pain in the abdomen or lower back, and urine that is cloudy or dark and may contain blood. Many times UTIs are caused by the bacteria E. coli, which is found in fecal matter. Improper hygiene procedures when using the bathroom may put a person at risk of UTI. When a person gets chronic UTIs, the bacteria that affect the body may be of the same kind but a slightly different strain from the infection before. This means that the new infection is separate from the last infection. Slight distinctions in the bacteria characterize different infections. Doctors are still trying to understand why some people are prone to frequent UTIs while others are not. According to Columbia University's Health Q&A Service, previous infections can damage the internal lining of the bladder, called the mucosa, which may require longer

courses of antibiotic treatment. Some bacteria can remain on the lining of the bladder safely within a protective barrier that they create, possibly making a normal course of antibiotics ineffective at treating the stowaway bacteria. Other research has indicated that women who are "non-secretors" of certain blood group antigens may be more prone to recurrent urinary tract infections. This is because the cells lining the urethra and vagina may allow bacteria to attach more easily. Soon there may be blood tests which can narrow down women with the propensity toward frequent UTIs. Some women also have anatomical predispositions that may make them susceptible to UTIs. For example, compression of the urethra during intercourse may trap bacteria. If UTIs are chronic, a urologist may want to conduct a series of tests and a pelvic exam to help determine the cause. Chronic occurrences are not normal and need to be carefully evaluated.

time (six months) can be effective at treating frequent UTIs. Women can also take steps that reduce the number of bacteria present in the body. These include: • Drinking plenty of water to flush out the bladder and the urethra of potentially harmful bacteria. • Boosting the immune system through healthy eating. • Drinking cranberry juice, which has been shown to improve urinary health. • Urinating before and after sexual intercourse to reduce bacteria that can be misplaced during sex. • Always wiping from front to back after using the bathroom. • Urinating when the need arises; not holding it in. • Avoiding the use of fragrant feminine sprays, wipes and cleansers, which can upset the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina. Working in concert with a doctor and practicing tips to reduce bacteria can help reduce the frequency of urinary tract infections.

Benefits to hair coloring

metrocreativeconnection.com

metrocreativeconnection.com

A woman’s hair has been referred to as her ‘crowning glory.’ But hair tends to get thinner as we get older. Coloring hair can both plump up the hair shaft as well as create the illusion of more hair.

Doctors, fitness professionals and nutritionists all have ideas on what men and women should and should not eat. Choosing the right foods can help save waistlines and lives. The country is growing larger, and that has nothing to do with the population. Individuals are heavier than ever before. About one-third of Americans are considered obese. No state in the U.S. has an obesity level less than 20 percent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 36 states had a prevalence of 25 percent or more; 12 of these states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia) had a prevalence of 30 percent or more. The obesity story is much the same in Canada, although residents of that country are slightly less obese than Americans. Statistics Canada states that from 2007 to 2009, 24.1 percent of adults in Canada were obese. Women have higher levels of obesity than men in both countries. Although it is widely known that eating a healthy diet and exercising frequently are the key ways to maintain a healthy weight, it's easy to fall into bad habits. Some men and women find it difficult to avoid temptation and stay on track with diet. But balance and portion control are great ways to enjoy food without gaining weight. Here are some tips to live by. 1. Use a smaller plate. This will trick the eye and brain into thinking

you are eating a lot. A large plate seems empty with smaller portions, prompting many men and women to eat more than is necessary. Using a smaller dish can give the impression of eating from an overflowing dish. 2. Make vegetables a priority, not an afterthought. Fill up on vegetables and make meat and other higher-calorie foods the afterthought, instead of vice-versa. In fact, twothirds of your dish should be consumed by vegetables, with the remaining portion for a protein or starch. 3. Avoid family style meals. That means placing large serving dishes full of food directly on the table. It encourages going in for seconds when you really may not be hungry. It takes the brain at least 20 minutes to register feeling full. So serve yourself from the stove and wait to see if you're still hungry before going back for more. 4. Switch to skim products. It is widely known that dairy products are an important component of healthy living. However, whole-milk varieties tend to be heavy on calories and saturated fat. Opt for skim milk whenever possible. Today, there are ultra-pasteurized varieties of skim milk that are creamy and filling. 5. Rely on seafood protein. Eating fish once or twice a week is an excellent way to cut calories and enjoy a food that is rich in essential fatty acids. 6. Experiment with herbs, not salt. A lot of sodium in a diet may not be good for blood pressure and it can lead to water retention. Instead,

9 ways to eat better

metrocreativeconnection.com Hair coloring is a way of life for many people. Although some decide on a change of color for creative reasons, many individuals go under the bottle to cover up gray hair. But hair dye may offer other benefits than covering up signs of aging. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration estimates that 2 out of 5 women in America dye their hair, while roughly 11 percent of men dye their hair. Young people are just as likely to dye their hair as older ones, according to research by Miss Clairol. Therefore, there have to be other benefits to changing one's hue beyond gray coverage -- and there are. Here's a look at a few. • Added body: People with limp locks may want to give color a try. That's because coloring plumps the hair shaft and can make hair temporarily thicker and with more body

reach for herbs to add flavor to foods. Keep a fresh selection of parsley, chives, cilantro, basil, and other herbs at the ready and chances are you won't even miss the salt. 7. Go sparingly on dressings and sauces. You can quickly turn a healthy salad into an unhealthy meal if you drizzle on too much creamy salad dressing. Studies show that some fast food salads have more fat than other fast food fare, including hamburgers. Opt for the dressing on the side, or select among fat-free alternatives. Use only about 1 to 2 teaspoons for flavor. 8. Indulge once in a while. Depriving yourself of everything that is tasty can lead to binge eating or overeating. Just remember to keep the portions of sweets or fattening foods modest and try not to over-do it the rest of the day. 9. Don't forget the exercise. The American College of Sports Medicine offers benefits of exercise beyond simply helping you to lose weight: • Lowers risk of heart disease by 40 percent. • Lowers risk of breast cancer by 20 percent. • Lowers risk of depression by 30 percent. • Lowers risk of hypertension by 40 percent. • Lowers risk of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent.

than before. • Shine and dimension: Putting a subtle color on the hair can create varied hues that pick up and reflect light differently. This can make the hair seem more vibrant and interesting. • More "pop": Just because a person was born with a specific hair color doesn't mean it is the best complement to his or her skin tone or eye color. Changing one's hair shade can make other attributes stand out more. Eyes may seem more radiant and skin less washed out. Experimenting with different shades can help a person find the best version of him or herself. • Natural options: Today there are hair dyes in many different formulations. There are also all-natural colors that deposit color into the hair, rather than stripping the cuticle to then add back color with chemicals. No matter the formula a person wants to try, a salon or over-the-counter product may be able to offer it. • Solution for thinning hair: Many men and women eventually lose some of their hair or experience thinning patches. Hair dye can plump hair and create the illusion of more hair. This is a less expensive method to try than hair replacement surgeries or other treatments. For those who are interested in phasing out hair dye, especially if they want gray hair to grow in, they can work with a colorist to place strategic low-lights in the hair. This will camouflage the gray hair and enable the gray to grow in less abruptly.

You may not be aware that “Forever Young” has separate editions for Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Brevard and Volusia counties. Local health care professionals have been interviewed for each edition. It is interesting to see that even the best doctors can differ in their approaches to hormone replacement therapy, calcium supplements and other issues. All of the editions are available online and if you wish to see what other doctors say, visit our website at www.hometownnewsol.com. It’s important to find a doctor whose approach matches yours. That means that you have to do your homework so that you can understand what the doctor is talking about. Then find a doctor whose approach and personality mesh with yours. No medical advice is worth anything if you don’t trust the doctor and don’t follow the advice. Ask questions about the risks and benefits of any treatment, including supplements. It’s your body and your health.
