Medina Magazine! It is our pleasure to present you with the 11th

annual Medina Area Magazine and Community Guide. It is an exciting time in Medina as we will celebrate our 200th Anniversary. We have planned Bicentennial events for the entire year that focus on our rich history, arts, and culture. We hope you will have the time to take part in many of these events this year. This magazine is brought to you free-of-charge as a result of many generous sponsorships from local businesses and organizations throughout our fine community. In turn, please support these local businesses. Medina continues to be a very special place to live, work, and visit. The activities, shopping, and various eateries in our downtown draw visitors from near and far. We are blessed with numerous cultural activities and events throughout the year on our Public Square. The surrounding historic buildings help to create a family environment that is enjoyed by all. We are additionally blessed with excellent schools, parks and recreational activities, the Medina County Library, and health facilities all of which enhance and improve the quality of life for our residents, workers and visitors. There are numerous opportunities for employment as our commercial areas grow and expand, as well as our industrial businesses. The city has recently experienced $128 million in industrial investments, resulting in nearly $28 million in new payroll once all new positions projected are filled. Our success has been due in large part to our positive customer service model in all our city services and our search for perpetual improvement in all we do. We are thankful for all the positive growth Medina has experienced over the years, and we look to continue to improve in our service to the Medina community. If you have any questions or we may assist you in any way, please contact us at Medina City Hall. We look forward to serving you. Sincerely, Dennis Hanwell Mayor

City Overview

Happy 200th Birthday to Medina …. Preserving the Past. Forging the Future. markhunterphoto.com

By Ken McEntee

A glance around Public Square,

On the heels of Medina’s yearlong bicentennial celebration, which began this November, Hanwell says the city has much more to offer than just an inviting, old-time appearance. “We have a culture of caring here that is reflected in our government services,” he says. “We have an excellent school system, great medical facilities and a robust park system.”

“Culture of Caring,” the mayor said, will be the city’s theme during the upcoming year.

Bicentennial

On November 30, 1818, Elijah Boardman deeded the public square area, securing Medina as the county seat within a township originally called “Mecca.” Three years later, the Medina County courts took occupancy in a new brick building that still stands today. Many of the original structures, however were wooden, and were destroyed in a major fire in 1870, according to Main Street Medina, an organization that has led the efforts to

which is accentuated by a grand gazebo and surrounded by historical buildings that contain quaint shops, may lead you to imagine yourself living in simpler times among Medina’s early settlers. Almost 200 years after Medina was founded, the Square remains unquestionably the town’s most distinctive attraction.

“Business people come here and they notice our historic area,” says Mayor Dennis Hanwell. “They tell us, ‘We saw the square, and what a great place for our employees’ families to live.’”

preserve the town’s historic district. The years after the blaze saw the construction of the brick buildings that continue to give Medina its unique historic character. With the 200th anniversary of the town’s founding a year away, a yearlong celebration is scheduled to begin with a “founder’s float” in Main Street Medina’s annual Candlelight Walk parade that took place on November 18. Historic characters in costume were present on the Square during the Candlelight Walk weekend. Special bicentennial events during the following 12 months will focus on the town’s rich history as told through living history characters, architecture, music, artifacts and culture.

displays and presentations about Medina’s growth in 1950s and 1960s, including the development of important transportation routes, including I-71. October events will look at the long history of manufacturing and industry in Medina. Finally, in November 2018, the celebration will culminate with a variety of events, including an original school play about Medina’s history.

Business Remains Strong

“Manufacturing and industry remain the foundation of Medina,” notes Kimberly Marshall, the city’s economic development director. “Many people may not realize the number of products that are being made right in our backyards,” Marshall says. “We’ve had a lot of industrial expansions this year, which is

For example, in commemoration of Black History Month, in February, a tour of homes in and around Medina that were stops on the Underground Railroad will be featured. The area’s historic fires of 1848, 1870 and 1877 will be explored in April. In August, the annual Affair on the Square will focus on

exciting because of new jobs that are being created.” “One of the most significant expansion projects of the year,” she says, “was at Carlisle Brake & Friction, a global manufacturer of brake, clutch and transmission systems. The company closed a plant in Oklahoma and consolidated its operations into their Medina location with a 158,000 square foot expansion of its Lake Road facility, creating 70 new jobs.” “We were in competition with Oklahoma and Indiana for this project, and we were able to work with our partners at the state and county to get a very significant win,” Marshall says. Sandridge Food Corp., the city’s largest private sector employer, also expanded this year, adding 15,000 square feet of production area and new equipment in a $16 million project that will create 50 new jobs by 2020. Sandridge provides services and fresh food solutions – such as salads and sauces for the foodservice and retail industries. “Firedex, a manufacturer of fire fighting gear, also is ‘growing like crazy,’ ” Marshall says. The company this year is doubling the size of its Progress Drive plant to 50,000 square feet, and will add 30 new employees.

investment in the industrial sector alone.” The importance of manufacturing to the local economy is emphasized at the Made in Medina County business expo, which is held every other October at the Medina County Fairgrounds. Organized by the Medina County Economic Development Corporation, the event allows attendees to see the products that local manufacturers ship all over the world.

Retail is Booming

“The city’s retail sector also continues to boom, lead by demand for space on and around the Square,” Hanwell says. “The Square is vibrant,” he says. “We have 100 percent occupancy, and any time we have an opening we have people vying against each other trying to get in. It’s a prime area because there are so many people on the sidewalks and in the park every night of the week. It’s not only when we’re having an event there.”

Marshall says monthly ribbon cuttings and celebrations of local business’ milestones are among her favorite parts of her job. “I think going through the step of formally welcoming business owners into Medina makes them feel at home,” she says. “It’s heartwarming to see the smiles on their faces.” Among the new retail and commercial openings and milestone this year were: • 50th anniversary of Transfer Title Agency • New Easter Seals adult day care center at 124 North Court Street • New ownership at Snap Fitness, 919 Court Street • $350,000 outdoor track expansion at High Voltage Indoor Karting, 333 Foundry Street • Opening of Floor Coverings International, at 620 East Smith Road • Opening of Rafraichir micro-spa, at 750 East Washington Street • Opening of Peppy Walnuts Sweets Boutique, at 503 South Court Street • Opening of Manhattan Dames, a vintage clothing boutique, at 140 West Washington Street • Expansion of Rico Manufacturing’s offices and showroom, at 699 West Liberty Street • Opening of Skin Care Solutions, at 401 South Court Street. • New location and expansion for the HHL Group accounting and business consulting firm, at 345 East Washington Street • Opening of the Circles on the Square doughnut shop at 28 Public Square

businesses, Hanwell asserts, is the city’s business friendly service. “I call it a community oriented government model, and it extends to the business community as well as Medina residents,” the mayor says. “It’s about a culture of caring for people’s needs. From the business side, it’s making sure their projects get done quickly. Sometimes there is a very short window to get an expansion project started, inspected and completed before a business gets into its busy season. We do whatever is needed to make it happen, even if it means bringing an inspector out early in the morning, late in the evening or on Saturday or Sunday to keep a project on track.” The same concept, he says, applies to municipal services. “Everything in the city is every city employee’s business,” Hanwell says. “If somebody sees a sign that needs to be replaced, or a dead animal on the street that needs to be removed, it doesn’t matter if its a parks employee or a cemetery employee, they have the responsibility of reporting it. We don’t say, ‘that’s not my job’ here.”

Saving Lives

The concept of cooperation among first responders, Hanwell says, has allowed police and paramedics to more efficiently assist accident victims. “There are cities where police and fire personal arrive at an emergency and argue about whose scene it is,” says Hanwell, a former Medina police chief. “Our police officers are trained in trauma care as first responders. That’s because we can get a squad car on the scene in one to two minutes but a rescue squad typically takes five to six minutes. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but every second counts if a person’s heart stops or they aren’t breathing.” Medina police who arrive before paramedics are trained to sustain life until a rescue squad arrives. “The Cleveland Clinic was so impressed by how we did our  Continued on page 12

training that they provided us with AEDs (Automated external defibrillators) for every police car, and they are studying what we do. So we are a model for Northeast Ohio.” AEDs diagnose the life-threatening cardiac conditions and apply electric pulses to reestablish a proper heart rhythm. “Equipping police officers with AEDs can save time and save lives,” the mayor says. “Our officers also carry equipment like tourniquets and Quick Clot with them so they don’t have to go back to the car to get them. We have had multiple occasions where officers were able to stop people from bleeding out because they were able to apply tourniquets before paramedics arrived. Sometimes officers are able to assist paramedics on the scene to avoid having to tie up two paramedic teams. It’s another example of cooperation among our departments.” The cooperation extends to keeping the city clean. “Making a first impression on visitors is important,” he says. “That goes for everything from keeping litter off the streets, to maintaining a friendly and helpful attitude to people who come into City Hall.”

Staying Cool

12

Cooperation was central to this year’s re-opening of the city’s outdoor swimming pool, Hanwell says. The pool closed in 2012 due to safety concerns. “There were several options for the pool that included leaving it closed, installing skylights to let sunlight into the indoor pool or to rebuild the pool with all new decking,” the mayor explains. “Everybody didn’t agree on the right way to go, but once City Council made the decision, everybody got on board and got it done, and ahead of schedule. It has been very successful. It wasn’t a really hot summer, but the pool was always loaded with people. That collaboration and spirit of cooperation for the betterment of the city is something that I am very proud of.” Medina Area Magazine & Community Guide | 2018


Our Bicentennial

It’s Time to Celebrate! Come and Join In! Founded in 1818, Medina is a

community proud of its heritage. The Public Square and the buildings in the historic district surrounding the uptown park have been recognized as the physical, symbolic, commercial, governmental, cultural and social center of Medina since its founding nearly two centuries ago. From 1818 to today, Medina has seen decades of change, growth, challenges, loss, and prosperity, and it is fitting that we celebrate our community’s 200th year of existence. The Medina Bicentennial Celebration Committee is working to capture the history—and the stories—of the City of Medina for our official Bicentennial Celebration in

2018. Much thought has already gone into preparing for this wonderful celebration and there are plans for over 50 events spread out over the entire year. Events include: • Lecture series featuring living history characters • Founders Day Celebration – November 30, 2018 • Family fun events • A Homecoming celebration from July 4 thru July 11, including a parade, band concert, fireworks, Medina High School Class reunion, and much more • Concerts featuring music from different eras • Historic building and home tours • Impacts of national history on Medina • History of Medina City Schools • Medina manufacturing and industry through the years • Medina women’s history • A celebration of presentday Medina • The creation and installation of a time capsule More events will be added to the celebration both by the committee and by local organizations wanting to share part of their story with the community

and to simply join in the year-long celebration. A complete, up-to-date listing of all the Bicentennial events may be found at www.medina200.com. Information will also be available through Facebook. Twitter and Snapchat. While the Mayor has established a committee to organize the Bicentennial celebration, this event belongs to all Medinians. There are many ways for individuals, families, businesses and organizations to become an active part of our community celebration. Please check the website for more information or make your own celebration plans and share them with the committee so we may help publicize your event. Every Medina resident, both current and former, is invited to participate in our Bicentennial Homecoming Week in July 2018. As the County Seat of Medina, the community also invites residents of the county and the nearby region to join us as we celebrate not only the 200th birthday of our town, but also the bicentennial of Medina County. On the next page is a listing of the events currently planned for Homecoming Week. More will be added. Please “Save the Dates” for this mid-year special celebration and look for more information on the website. www.medinaoh.org

The museum is also home to a fire engine from 1918, the High's Jewelers clock sign, fire and safety collectibles, and many other artifacts. "The collection will continue to grow and evolve as more people become aware of it and donate materials to more fully showcase the rich history of Medina," Smalley said.

The museum recounts Medina's history, beginning with its first settler in 1817, and the collection showcases the city's evolution from a small farming community and rural county seat to the bustling city of today. Visitors can glimpse early

Our Bicentennial Like father, like son. Ernest Root took over the beekeeping part of the business and continued giving live honey bee demonstrations.

A man wise beyond his years and intellectually curious, A. I. Root embodied the inventive spirit of the 19th century. He revolutionized beekeeping when his ingenious creations enabled the mass production of honey.

A. I. Root’s honey bees were farmed out to parts of the country to help with pollination across the United States and Canada! Some of the locations included Virginia, Council Bluffs, Iowa and Ontario, Canada.

What started off as a hobby for A. I. Root, turned into a booming beekeeping business that evolved into candle making!

A. I. Root was born in Medina in 1839. He was captivated by beekeeping when a swarm of honey bees landed on the window of his jewelry store. He paid $1, a day’s wage, for the “box of bugs”, much to his wife’s dismay.

Amos Ives Root was closely connected with the birth of aviation. In 1904, he personally visited and followed the work of Orville & Wilbur Wright. In fact, he was with the Wright brothers the first time they flew at Huffman Prairie near Dayton, Ohio. When he submitted an account of that flight to a leading scientific magazine, he received no acknowledgement. So, in typical “can-do” fashion, A.I. published the article himself in his magazine, Gleanings In Bee Culture. This turned out to be the first published account of the Wright Brothers historic accomplishment.

Our Bicentennial

History Through the Ages As Medina County prepares to celebrate its 200-year

history, The Medina County Historical Society can claim to have worked to preserve that history for almost half that period. Having been incorporated by the State of Ohio in 1922, we are celebrating 95 years of promoting, maintaining and preserving all things of historical interest in the county. On April 1, 1922, the society began to accept members; the dues were $5 a year. In 1948 the group rented rooms to display items donated by early county families. In 1954, the items were moved to a large barn on the property of Mrs. Cora Munson Blakeslee. According to the newsletter of the society from March-April 2007, “The agreement for the lease was in the amount of $1 annually for a term of 25 years. This was very optimistic on the part of Mrs. Blakeslee, considering the fact that she was 97 years old at the time.” In 1956, when Mrs. Blakeslee died at the age of 99 and left her home and some of its contents to them, the society moved into its first permanent museum, The Munson House on E. Washington St. From April 14, 1957 until 1984, the house was used for the society’s collection of artifacts and for meetings and tours. In the early 1980’s, the county government wanted the Munson House

18

Medina Area Magazine & Community Guide | 2018

property for additional city parking. After negotiations, the society received ownership of a house on the corner of Friendship and Elmwood streets in exchange for the Munson House. After five busy months of restoration and financial help from the Letha E. House Foundation, the John Smart House Museum officially opened on November 29, 1984. Today, the Smart House is still the home of the Medina County Historical Society. We are open every Tuesday from 10am to 3pm at which time a steady stream of visitors come and go bringing family treasures to donate, asking for tours, or doing genealogy research in our newly restored lower level. We open the house from 1pm-4pm on the first Sunday of each month and gladly schedule private tours at other times. Our very active board of directors and officers work hard to hold fundraisers and events to finance and to promote our mission of preservation. Approximately 200 members support the work of the society with their dues (a single senior can join for $10 – not much more than 95 years ago), and with their donations of time, talent, and treasures. We have a Facebook page and a website (www.medinahistorical.com) where you can learn about our upcoming activities. We publish a newsletter four times a year and welcome new members and visitors. Join us, or be our guest for a visit!

Our company, Simmons

Brothers

Construction is proud to celebrate with

Medina during its bicentennial. While we don’t go back 200 years, we do mark the last one-third of that time. Our predecessor, Gay Simmons and Sons, built the Medina County Jail in the 1950’s (now a parking lot behind the courthouse), the Northern Ohio Telephone Company (Miss Molly’s Tea Room), the Congregational Church activities hall, Hale’s Restaurant (now Amuse Euro Bistro), the Farm Bureau Mill on State St. (now Free Enterprises) and a little Baptist church on N. Broadway St. (now the Veterans Memorial Hall), among others. When Dad retired we formed Simmons Brothers Construction just in time for the west side industrial boom, lead by Amos Mears. We were his general trades contractor and built 60-some industrial buildings from 1959-1971, when Mears retired (again) to Florida. Forming our own development company after Mears left, Indelser of Medina built two industrial parks in the city. One at W. Smith Rd. 711 to 777 and the other at Progress Industrial Park off N. State Rd.

Working with some of the Giants of Medina History For Medina’s oldest industry, A.I. Root Company which began in 1859, we built new factory, warehouse, retail sales areas and completely remodeled their offices.

Washington, N. Court St., Stonegate (now Malley’s Chocolates), remodeled S. Court St., and built or remodeled all thirteen Medina County locations. Since 1902, five generations of the Waite family have served the needs of the people of Medina County with special care through the Waite & Son Funeral Home. We added a second memorial chapel and remodeled the existing building on N. Court St. In 1944, a small wing was built on a house on State Rt. 18, and Medina Community Hospital was born. Over the years it grew to become Medina General Hospital and today stands as Medina Hospital Cleveland Clinic - Medina’s largest employer. SBC created its first intensive care area, added a radiology area, built its LST Building, both North and South Medical Buildings, and remodeled every department in the hospital from 1996-2008. For Medina’s oldest church, St. Paul’s Episcopal, we built two additions and several renovations. Remember Ziegler’s on the square? We built a full basement under the original seven buildings while they sold clothes upstairs.

For Old Phoenix National Bank (now Huntington), we added and remodeled their main office, built W.

A few highlights, scores of other jobs, our mark is scattered throughout the most recent 70 years of Medina’s history. We’ll enjoy the celebration and prepare for the next 200 years!

Financial

Why Join a Credit Union? When it comes to choosing a financial institution— people have many options. So, you might ask yourself why should I join a credit union? By joining a credit union, you can enjoy many benefits that banks and other financial institutions cannot offer. Unlike banks, which operate for profit, credit unions are member-owned, democratically run nonprofits. Credit unions exist solely to serve their members’ financial needs. The motto of “people helping people” is alive and well in all the decisions that a volunteer Board of Directors make in terms of the products and services that the institution offers. That means you’re not just a customer, you’re a member-owner and you get to vote for the Board of Directors who set the direction for your credit union. Each member’s vote carries equal weight, regardless of their deposits at the credit union. And credit unions not-for-profit status allows them to distribute their profits back to members through lower loan rates, higher interest on deposits, and lower fees. Add to all of this the fact that credit unions are known for their personal service and community involvement. It’s commonplace for credit unions to give out scholarships, participate in fundraising and awareness campaigns for local charities, sponsor and donate to community events and provide financial literacy programs within the areas they serve. Credit unions truly care about their members’ financial well-being and will go above and beyond to help members achieve their financial goals. And that is why you should join a credit union.

3 Ways to Prevent Poison Ivy – and How to Treat it

enhanced logos:

Kids’ reactions to poison ivy can vary from

nothing to a red, itchy rash or blisters and severe swelling. Ellen MacRitchie, MD, a pediatrician at Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics Medina, shares ways to avoid poison ivy and what to do if your kids touch it.

Leaves of 3, let them be!

Teach kids this catchy phrase to help them identify and steer clear of poison ivy plants, which can grow anywhere and have a characteristic 3-leaf pattern.

Keep covered

If kids are playing outside, especially in wooded areas, limit the risk of contact with poison ivy by dressing them in long sleeves and pants.

Wash up right away

For kids who come into contact with the plant, have them wash off their skin immediately, using plenty of soap and water.

Treating a mild poison ivy rash

Apply calamine lotion 3-4 times a day to ease itching. Remind kids not to itch the rash since that encourages it to spread (trimming their fingernails helps). Taking a cool bath can soothe itchy skin, too. If the rash seems to be getting worse, or symptoms get more severe, contact your pediatrician.

Are You Catching Your Zzzzs? To survive, humans need sleep.

It’s as essential as food, water and oxygen. But it’s often difficult to get the recommended seven to nine hours a night, whether because of busy schedules, trouble falling asleep or physical condition. Signs of a sleep disorder include: • Lack of energy • Morning headaches • Frequent urination at night • Excessive daytime sleepiness • Nighttime gasping, choking or coughing • Snoring What many people don’t realize are the repercussions of sleep disorders.

Without enough sleep, you may see long-term and serious health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack or stroke. Also, you may develop obesity, depression, lower sex drive and premature wrinkling. Certain factors and conditions also increase your chance of developing a sleep disorder. So pay close attention to the signs listed above if you: • Are male • Are obese • Have hypertension • Use excessive alcohol or sedatives • Are a smoker • Have a family history of OSA • Have a large neck circumference (>17” men; >16” women)

If you are concerned you may have a sleep disorder, we can help. Summa Health Medina Medical Center, conveniently located at 3780 Medina Road, recently added two sleep medicine specialists to our staff. Rami Abboud, M.D. is fellowshiptrained in sleep medicine and is board certified in critical care and pulmonary medicine. Mita Deoras, M.D. completed her fellowship in neurology and sleep medicine. Both are accepting new patients. To learn more about Summa Health’s services available in Medina, visit summahealth.org/Medina or call 800-237-8662.

All the comforts of home...and more! Many Medina County residents may be wondering “what are my options for senior living?” If you have reached the 55 or better age bracket, several housing options are available to you right here in Medina County. In today’s housing market, residents of Medina County have options. Some will decide to stay in their home as long as they can. Eventually, maintaining a home can take a toll on anyone.

Realtors: Your Advocate in the Real Estate Process Buying a home is a huge financial commitment, and the difference between various choices can be significant. It doesn’t help that home buying is foreign territory to most people. The realtor involved in a transaction can often be the difference in a positive or negative transaction. I always suggest that any potential client interview several realtors from different brokerages to determine who is going to be the best advocate for their situation. Different realtors and brokerages also have differing practices and could affect the outcome you are seeking. • Realtors can be “the voice of reason” when you are overcome by your emotions (which is easy to do when house-hunting). If you fall in love with a property, a realtor can be there to help you recognize a property’s flaws or shortcomings. Conversely, a realtor can help

you to see the positive side of a property with which you might not be immediately impressed. In addition, realtors can provide information about the neighborhood, schools, comparative sales in the area, and other important home buying factors. This objectivity and information is critical when you are making such a major decision. • Realtors are skilled, experienced negotiators. When conducting a sale, there are many angles through which to negotiate beyond the asking price, such as financing, conditions of a contract and other material issues beyond the sales price. • Realtors can help you navigate the home buying process in general, making sure you are not rushed into making decisions, that you have time for inspections and appraisal, and referring you to the appropriate resources for mortgage and title work. But remember – the above describes TOP Realtors, not all real estate agents. It is imperative that your realtor is a good fit for your needs whether buying or selling a home.

Homes & Real Estate

Your Home is Your Castle For most people, your home is the largest investment you will make in your life. At the county auditor’s office, we think you’ve made an outstanding choice to buy in Medina County, but it’s worthwhile to pay attention to that investment! First of all, make sure we have your home properly valued. Go to www.medinacountyauditor.org and click on “Real Estate” and then “Property Search” in the top left hand corner. Enter your last name under the “Owner” block and click on your property. If you have a more common last name and too many entries come up, add in other information, like the street number of your property under “Address”. Try to add as little information as possible to find your property. Check your “Total Value” against what you actually paid for your property, if it’s a recent (2-4 years) purchase. If we have you valued higher than your purchase, you may want to contact us to get your property value lowered. Questions about taxes? You can find out exactly what your taxes are and where they go at this website. Having trouble finding the information? Contact your auditor’s office at 844-722-3800, ext. 9754 for help. There is a wealth of other information available to you at this website. New to the community? We recommend signing up for Auditor Kovack’s “Weekend Update” that brings you information about news and events in Medina County each week. Welcome to Medina County!

Making Beautiful Music The Medina Community Band traces its beginnings back to 1859,

when a group of local wind and percussion players got together (some with formal training - others without) to perform music for the community. Since its beginning in 1859, there have been 20 directors. Marcus Neiman has served as conductor since 1972 with David Roth serving as associate conductor (since 2016), John Connors serving as assistant conductor (since 2015), and Vicki Smith serving as assistant conductor (since 2017). Medina Community Band is sponsored by the Medina Community Band Association, which is composed of members of the band. Membership in Medina Community Band

Since 1990

is open and there are no dues or auditions; however, members are expected to maintain regular attendance. Interested individuals should contact Neiman at marcusneiman@ medinacommunityband.org. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7pm until 9pm in the band room of Highland High School at 4150 Ridge Road in Medina from September through July. A Veterans Day Concert in November, Winter Concert in January, and Spring Concert in May are presented each year. The summer season features Friday evening concerts at 8:30pm in the Gazebo on Medina’s Public Square beginning in June and ending in July. For more information, visit their website at www.medinacommunityband.org.

Are your body’s Symphony of Hormones out-of-tune? An Accurate, Painless and Convenient Way to Test your Reproductive, Thyroid and Adrenal Hormones By Jeffrey Potter, R.Ph.

If you really

want to correct your hormone issues we need to first identify the problem area. What good is it to start any sort of hormone therapy if the problem area hasn’t been identified? Saliva testing is an accurate, painless and convenient way to test your reproductive, thyroid and adrenal hormones. Saliva testing is the most reliable way to measure free, bioavailable hormone activity. Only hormones in tissue and not in blood have the ability to do “work”. Most blood tests do not test or measure bioavailable hormone levels. Saliva testing is and excellent way to objectively measure estrone, estradiol, estriol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and cortisol. Add blood spot testing and we can additionally measure your thyroid hormone function by observing TSH, free T4, free T3 (active thyroid) and TPO. By analyzing this “symphony of hormones” it allows us to see a clear picture of your overall hormone health. After we receive your saliva test results we’ll contact you to schedule a professional consultation. Once you have met with our nutritionist and consultant pharmacists and all the additional health information has been gathered, we contact your physician. Our pharmacist will write up a plan with recommendations on treatment options and present it to your doctor. Typically, once your doctor or nurse practitioner has reviewed the plan he or she will sign off on it and contact us for implementation. This is a team approach with YOU as the manager of your healthcare. Once you have started we will follow up with you on a monthly basis and make fine tune adjustments until your initial goals have been met. Most women have typically met the majority of their initial goals by the third month. A unique thing that happens over time is that once women see how good they feel, they start setting their treatment goals higher and higher. What a nice problem to have. Find out why people are driving to Clinical Apothecaries from all over Ohio to get their hormones balanced. Want to get started? Call to have a Saliva and Blood Spot Test Kit shipped directly to you. If you would like additional information please contact our office at 330-721-7949. Our friendly staff will be more than happy to assist you. Clinical Apothecaries is located at 4087 Medina Rd., directly across from Medina Hospital.

Cornerstone Chapel.. Building People for Life! One of the best sounds of Medina is

the laughter of children! Whether playing at the park, enjoying ice cream on the historic square, or in our schools or homes, it is the sweetest sound. Kids are a valued part of our community and if you are a parent or grandparent, working inside or outside the home, you want your kids to grow up happy and healthy.

Many churches in our community value kids too and want to partner with you in raising them to have good values, strong faith, self-confidence, love, and kindness. We encourage you to find a church home right here in Medina County where you and your kids can grow together. Building a strong foundation as a family is a sure way to bring

love and laughter to your life and home for years to come! Pastor Mark & Deb Giaimo of Cornerstone Chapel invite you to come and experience all that they have to offer at 3939 Granger Road in Medina. Call 330-723-3334 or visit them online at www.cornerstonechapel.org. www.medinaoh.org
