DR. MORGAN MOOR

Dr. Morgan Moor has been a Brentwood native for almost 20 years working in different roles as a prominent health care provider. She was one of the first physician’s to introduce bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to the Nashville area which has made an immense difference in her patient’s lives. Dr. Moor’s passion is to make a genuine difference in people’s lives which has led her to discover a new therapy available here in the US. Beginning October 1, 2017 Dr. Moor started New Life Regenerative Medicine offering innovative stem cell therapy to her current patients and beyond. She is proud to partner with Dr. Hemal Mehta and the New Life Regenerative team to help fulfill this first in class therapy. Dr. Mehta brings over 15 years of Chronic Pain Management and Spine/ Joint injection experience to the practice. He has a robust knowledge base on the latest advances in stem cell therapy and how to treat common yet complex pain related issues. We offer interested patients an individual patient consultation and will be hosting monthly seminars that potential patients can attend. Dr. Moor has established a remarkable team at New Life Regenerative Medicine, but what truly makes us distinctive is the source of our stem cell therapies. Our stem cells are processed in an FDA registered lab, minimally manipulated, procured, processed and tested according to FDA requirements. Although the FDA has not approved stem cell therapy for any disease state various studies have demonstrated the safety, efficacy, and potential for positive patient outcomes. We are proud to offer you a first in class stem cell experience within the Nashville area! A few years ago one of our patients was involved in a life changing event that unfortunately caused her to become a paraplegic. After seeing multiple physicians and finding no hope she was told,” It is time for you to get use to your state and move on”, her response, “That may be good enough for you but not for me!” It was obvious that she has a strong will and desire to recover which led her back to her trusted physician, Dr. Moor. Dr. Moor introduced her to our innovative stem cell therapy. She agreed to this treatment plan and both Dr. Moor and Dr. Mehta felt this could be her best chance at normal life and proceeded with treatment. During her treatment she was able to have brief sensations from her waist down to her feet. Dr. Moor is excited about this new treatment that she can offer patients and the hope it may bring.

IF IT’S TRUE THAT IT TAKES 10,000 HOURS OF PRACTICE TO BECOME PROFICIENT IN SOMETHING, KIDD EPPS HAS PUT IN THE TIME AND MADE HIS FAIR SHARE OF MISTAKES THROUGHOUT HIS 10-YEAR ODYSSEY AS A SELF-TAUGHT DESIGNER. His hard work has paid off in recent years with the success of some big projects. He

attributes being in the right place at the right time for influencers noticing his work and being featured in design publications. Kidd has been called a furniture maker and entrepreneur but, ultimately, he is a designer and creative director of Kidd Epps Art Shop (KEAS) in historic North Nashville on a stretch nicknamed “The Buc” for Buchanan Street. KEAS is a design and build studio Kidd founded in 2012 specializing in interior and architectural design and fabrication of furniture, lighting, art, and signature pivot doors and windows.

FULL SERVICE PRINTING & MAILING SOLUTIONS Servicing all of Middle Tennessee

Although Kidd was born in Houston, there was already a family connection to Music City through the 1970s success of his songwriter father. But success was never a guarantee, and his father moved back to Texas. Kidd describes his youth as a “gypsy-like environment,” where musicians would regularly hang out at the house. When Kidd was 10 years old, the family moved to Middle Tennessee, primarily to revive his father’s music career. Kidd attended Fairview Middle and Clarksville High Schools. His father worked construction to support the family, and Kidd learned building skills working alongside his dad during the summers.“ CONTINUED >

(CON TI N U ED)

“I first realized I had a talent for design while attending the art department at Austin Peay State University. Although a different medium, I believe design is multifaceted, and the ability to create good design translates across many mediums,” Kidd says. “I’ve had many revelations throughout my career and, as I’ve grown in confidence, my design sense has also refined and grown. “When designing my retail showroom (my first holistic interior project), I realized I was really good at creating beautiful spaces that worked in harmony and evoked emotion. I had an ability to create a unique and warm space by finding a balance of simplicity, meaningful objects and beautiful imagery.” It doesn’t matter if Kidd is creating a cabinet, lamp and coffee table for Mayor Megan Barry’s office or installing his popular swivel doors in a restaurant, he stays true to his aesthetics: timeless, simple and uncluttered design, quality made-to-last construction in metal and wood, and purposeful functionality. Acknowledging the Scandinavian feel to his work, Kidd brings Nashville sensibilities in through his material choices such as walnut or hickory, creating warmth and bright space. More recently, Kidd has been involved–along with other Nashville designers and artisans—in preserving luxury 1929 features of the newly opened Noelle, a 224-room boutique hotel in downtown Nashville at the corner of Church Street and historical Printers Alley. KEAS is very much part of “The Buc,” and, as a local business, Kidd believes in neighborhood improvements to give locals better services and income. Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria, a Nashville Scene Writer’s Choice pick in its first year of opening, is one such example of “The Buc’s” gentrification and Kidd was involved in the eatery’s design and build. What does the future hold for Kidd? There are many exciting projects, not least of which he wants to introduce KEAS top-tobottom design services to the Franklin and Brentwood areas, whether it’s a room or a complete redesign of a house. Not only does Kidd live in the Westhaven neighborhood, but his Franklin roots stretch back to his first job at a restaurant, which is now 55 South. 28

KIDD’S DESIGN TIPS 1. When choosing, make sure the piece is not just pleasing to the eye but is well-made, stays relevant and fits into any design aesthetic.  2. When entering a room, look at the details: door handles, lighting fixtures, and pay attention to features that are unnecessary to the function of the piece. 3. Chose display pieces that are timeless and tell a story, not just run-of-the-mill knickknacks. Photo by Megan Cencula

IS THE NEW

How optimizing your hormones can add 30 vibrant years to your life W R I TTE N BY AA R O N W E N Z E L , M.D. A N I N TR O D U C TI O N TO H O R MO N E R E P LACEM ENT: PA R T 1 O F 7

When was the last time you felt great? Specifically, when was the last time you felt energetic, strong, creative, and clear-thinking? If you’re like most, it’s been a very long time. The human experience is that we peak around 25 years old, stay relatively steady for a decade, then decline over the next 40 to 50 years until we die. This is the narrative that we’ve all come to accept as normal because it’s common. But do we have to? In short, the answer is no. It turns out the only difference between you at 25 and 65—other than life experience—are your hormones. They’re optimal in your 20’s and they progressively lessen after your mid-30’s. Hormones are chemical messengers our body produces that facilitate communication between cells and influence virtually every bodily process. Growth, sexual development, mood, sleep, how we manage stress, and how we digest food are all controlled by hormones. Understanding how to optimize your hormones will ensure that you’ll be the healthiest, most vibrant version of you possible. Before we begin this discussion

however, there are two very important concepts to grasp. BI OI D EN T I C A L H O R MO N E S ( B H R T) VS. SYN TH E TI C H O R MO N E S Bioidentical hormones have the exact cellular structure and makeup as the hormones created by the human body and are safe. Synthetic hormones are pharmaceutically manufactured to mimic our natural hormones, but are not the same molecules and are not safe. N OR M A L VS . O P TI MA L Normal is another way of saying common or average, and varies widely. Optimal is where you function and feel the best. This also varies based on individuals. HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW The data is clear, optimized hormone levels result in improved mortality and morbidity, and they make you feel better. And, the way you feel determines the quality of your life.

Rooster Tails Has a Tale FURNITURE BUILDER REVEALS HIS HISTORY ARTICLE KERSTA MELLO | PHOTOGRAPHY LISA LINN MANLEY

WHEN YOU THINK OF A BUSINESS NAMED ROOSTER TAILS, WHAT DO YOU THINK? Nashville’s iconic hot chicken? Farm animals for sale? A place where you can buy metal rooster tails? For the past almost 17 years, Rooster Tails has been building and selling furniture and decor to people in Tennessee. The history of owners Wayne and Pat Killebrew goes back much further.

Upon entering the store, customers will find the original hardwood floors from 1865. Though various tenants have added on to the building over the years, many original parts of the store remain. “Originally when I bought the place, I didn’t tell my wife for three days,” Wayne says. “I drew pictures of the floor plan and of what

They’re all 100 percent solid wood. The turnaround time for custom pieces is five weeks. Rooster Tails also sells home décor including metal items, picture frames and the iconic stars, similar to the one that adorns the main building. They also sell rustic barnwood furniture built by an Amish man in Kentucky. As for the name, Wayne says he wanted a name that had to be explained—it had to tell a story. “When I told my wife I was going to name the store Rooster Tails, she thought I

WOVEN + KNOTTED LIVING BOHO-CHIC WITH WOVEN TEXTURES AND MACRAMÉ Decorate your space with handmade textures such as the modern, maker revival of 1970s macramé and year-round tropical feel of wicker. MACRAMÉ Made through knotting instead of weaving, macramé can add a unique touch in many various ways. Houzz contributor Laura Gaskill suggests incorporating it as nursery decor, plant hangers, wall hangings and modern fiber arts. WICKER According to Houzz contributor Yanic Simard, “the best way to really embrace the luxury-cottage appeal of wicker and rattan is to combine different forms of the two in one space ... Look for other unexpected places to add a natural twist to your home with a new material woven into your palette.”

AGAINST THE GRAIN TIPS FOR DECORATING WITH NATURAL MATERIALS Houzz contributor Katie Treggiden offers many ways to incorporate natural materials and natural-state timber into your home, including using wood to cover one wall in a home for a pleasing accent wall; featuring your firewood as a striking, stacked display; and mixing different types of wood and different finishes in the same space. “A simple way to incorporate the wood trend is to expose structural wooden beams already present in your home,” Katie says. “Instead of painting them or boxing them in, leave them raw or give them a coat of wax to enrich the tones.” 42

Giardino serves specially made, handcrafted salads using a wide variety of only the freshest ingredients. The restaurant has origins in South Florida, and it expanded out of Florida for the first time when it opened here in Tennessee. Having grown up in Miami within the rich Hispanic culture that influences that area, it should come as no surprise that the habanero salad is Clayton's favorite. "It is full of nutrients.  The cucumbers keep you hydrated, the garbanzo beans provide fiber, and the avocado provides a healthy monounsaturated fat and aids in lowering cholesterol, among many other benefits. And  the  dressing is low in sugar and saturated fat." Reflecting on her childhood, she adds, "One of my favorite parts are the plantain chips as croutons. This salad reminds me of Miami." Clayton has a master's degree in nutrition and exercise science and applies it every day.   "I use my knowledge to help our customers meet their dietary needs."

2 ounces Irish whiskey 1/2 ounce lime juice (ideally fresh) ¾ cup ginger ale Lime wedges (optional) Ice 1. Fill a glass or copper mug with the ice. 2. Add whiskey and lime juice; stir. 3. Top with ginger ale. 4. Serve with a lime wedge.

Fill a glass with ice. 2. Add the rum first, then pineapple juice and stir. 3. Add club soda. 4. Drop in the blue Curacao or food coloring until you get your desired shade of green while stirring.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY CELEBRATIONS ARE SYNONYMOUS WITH A TEPID LAGER DYED A SHOCKINGLY BRIGHT COLOR GREEN THAT TAKES FOREVER TO GET AT AN OVERCROWDED BAR. If you pass on the beer, your options are most likely wickedly sweet mixed drinks or an overly minted cocktail option with liquor probably left over from Christmas. If you are throwing your own soiree or simply staying in, why not try some more appealing cocktail choices? Since designated drivers are important and parties often include underage individuals and a pregnant woman or two who want to participate in festivities, having a nonalcoholic base punch is a must-have as well. Besides, you always can allow those who want— and are allowed—to spike the punch.
