The kinetic energy of an object is the energy it possesses because of its motion and Darian Garner is seemingly always in motion at Spring Valley High, whether holding a schoolbook or a baton. She uses her explosive energy and excellent sprinting form to propel her to first place finishes in 200m races. She is a senior and the captain of the Spring Valley Track Team and a member of the member of the 4x200 relay team that won the section title in Class A. Garner practices five days a week after school and the time she puts in has helped her become Spring Valley’s Athlete of the Season in the winter. She has a competitive nature that drives her to not only succeed on the track but in the classroom and she is finishing up her senior year as the top-ranked student in her class. Garner prefers the 200m race to the 100m dash as it enables her to “pull it into a second gear when coming around the corner,” and that is a feeling she relishes. She has made great friendships on the track team but what she really enjoys in competing is that she knows when she lines up at the beginning of the race that she has to perform at her best to win. Garner considers herself to be a “very independent and strong individual.” She has been accepted to U Penn, Cornell and Harvard and is excited about attending an Ivy League school. Garner’s competitive nature and desire to succeed will put her on the podium giving the Valedictorian speech at her graduation. Delivering her speech might be one of the rare occasions that she tries to slow herself down.

Casey Hampton – Making a Difference! After spending only a few minutes with Casey Hampton – an eleven year old 6th grader, you will find yourself smiling, a bit giddy, and just a tad unable to keep up with this whirling, happy-go-lucky, young person!

from all of us at Ocean Empire

Casey keeps a busy schedule – she plays the outfield, pitches, and also umpires, for the South Orangetown Little League team, “The Pirates”. She has been playing softball since she was only 5 years old and loves the game immensely. She is not afraid to get dirty; she has no problem sliding into base and looks forward to calling the strikes and outs on the field for as long as she can. Casey even manages to entertain her teammates when they are in the dugout – you can spot her playing “air guitar” on her bat while she is waiting for her turn!

• DAILY & DINNER SPECIALS • LUNCH SPECIALS

Casey takes her academics as serious as her athletics; she is currently taking Italian and belongs to the Italian Club at school. They study all things related to Italy and were invited to march in last years’ Columbus Day Parade in NYC where Casey and her teammates performed the Tarantella.

Monday thru Friday 11:30am-3pm • We Customize Dishes to your Liking • Family Style Dishes • Light & Healthy and Vegetarian Dishes

Oh and then there is the chorus… She performs with the chorus at school and they were named All County in 2013.

OPEN 7 DAYS: 11:30am-10:00pm

One of Casey’s most important accomplishments is a nomination to receive the “You Make a Difference” award for exceptional citizenship and service to her school. Students are nominated by teachers, guidance counselors, psychologists and administrators.

May is Better Hearing Month! May is Better Hearing Month and Hearing Solutions of Rockland, a family owned and operated hearing care center since 1985, offers solutions to hearing loss and ways to celebrate the sounds of life with better hearing. During Better Hearing Month, Hearing Solutions of Rockland will continue its collaborated effort to provide premium customer care and peace of mind. We suggest that those experiencing hearing loss, visit Hearing Solutions of Rockland for an RN, BSN and Licensed HIS assessment and test. Numerous studies have linked untreated hearing loss to a wide range of physical and emotional conditions. Hearing loss affects every aspect of daily life and can reduce the quality of life by making communication more difficult. It also leads to misunderstandings, heightened stress, unnecessary fatigue, isolation and strained relationships. The good news is that hearing loss can be treated with hearing aids. Hearing Solutions of Rockland will first help decide if hearing aids are a good option before finding a hearing instrument that will best serve a patient’s hearing and lifestyle needs. Please call us at (845) 623-5020 to schedule your personalized hearing evaluation.

Experts weigh in on eating disorders Summer is around the corner, which means the return of beach weather and bathing suits and now that the sweaters are back on the shelves, it is a good time to take a good look at your kids and see if their bodies have changed. Navigating the world of adolescence can be a tough time for anyone. Your hormones are raging, you are dealing with fitting in with new peer groups and you begin to follow your friends more than your parents. It’s also a time when your body image is heavily influenced by the world around you. Eating disorders in children are a serious issue and the compulsive behavior of a person with an eating disorder can turn into a serious addiction. A teenager developing an eating disorder may show no physical signs so it is very important to be aware of emotional changes in your child. Not everyone with an eating disorder becomes anorexic or puts on dramatic weight but the fixation on body image and becoming obsessive about food and their weight are major signs of an eating disorder. The effects of having low self esteem and poor body image in childhood and adolescence can stay with a person throughout their life. That’s why it is important to seek counseling for your child when you notice a change in them. Eating disorders can result in drastic weight loss or gain in extreme cases, but the physical changes in a person with an eating disorder are the result of the emotional issues the person is experiencing. It is important to understand that there is no one definitive cause of eating disorders. Eating disorders are the effect of changes in a person’s emotional state and poor self esteem. The statistics involving eating disorders in children and teens can be shocking and all point to the need to seek counseling and treatments. “Anorexia is the third most common chronic illness among adolescents and has the highest death rate of any mental illness,” noted Christine Miraglia, LCSW, a clinical therapist who specializes in eating disorders and has a practice in Nyack. In American high schools, 30% of girls and 16% of boys suffer from some form of disordered eating,” noted Ms. Miraglia. She also works as a supervisor and primary therapist at the Rockland Jewish Family Service, located in West Nyack. It is a nationally recognized eating disorders clinic. The Rockland Jewish Family Service’s outpatient group therapy program is run by licensed, experienced mental health professionals in a comfortable, supportive setting. “Most therapists and dietitians in Rockland do not accept health insurance to pay for treatment,” noted Miraglia. At the RJFS, programs are open to people of all faiths and they accept and

Christine Miraglia, LCSW reimburse insurance. In addition to the outpatient group therapy program, which meets twice a week for eight weeks, a weekly family group session is offered. This gives “parents, partners, spouses, siblings, and close friends a chance to support one another and learn more about how to help their loved one with an eating disorder,” she said. At the Rockland Jewish Family Service, teens struggling with eating disorders who are seeking help can learn to develop the coping skills to change their compulsive ways. Miraglia and the other therapists at RJFS treat patients as individuals and use a client-centered approach to get them on the path to feeling better about themselves and to living a healthier life. There is a “great deal of secrecy in eating disorders,” noted Ms. Miraglia. Kids will go to great lengths to hide their compulsive behavior. “Eating disorders also come in all shapes and sizes and you often can’t tell whether someone has one by looking at them,” she said. It’s not just teen girls who develop eating disorders as she is seeing more and more boys and adult men with eating disorders.

Nunzio Signore is a fitness expert and trainer who owns Rockland Peak Performance in Sloatsburg and recommends that kids grow up eating more small meals throughout the day, as opposed to two or three heavy meals. “Children at young ages will burn up to twice the amount of calories as adults,” he noted. Dieting and avoiding carbohydrates, which has become popular with adults, is not healthy for children and teenagers who need to have protein and carbs in order to develop their growing muscles. Developing proper eating habits at a young age can help instill a healthier outlook on food as they enter adolescence. “What parents eat and do can effect what their kids eat and do,” Signore stated. He believes that if you cook and eat healthy, your kids will grow up with a healthy attachment to the foods that make them feel better. He believes that good fat, like fat found in whole milk, avocado, and coconut oil should not be eliminated from a developing child’s diet. Signore preaches that parents and teens alike stay fit and exercise, without focusing on trying to look skinny, which isn’t healthy and can lead to compulsive behavior. “Athletes have more muscle mass and tend to be heavier,” Signore noted. He believes most teenagers involved in sports need to understand that eating well is a key to staying strong. Building muscle will most likely also instill confidence and can lead to a healthier body image than those teens that live a more sedentary and lethargic lifestyle and play video games all day. When a child has fun participating in athletics, it instills a sense of camaraderie with others, as well as confidence in his or her own abilities that can help build healthy long term self esteem. Teen athletes who are pre-wired to eating disorders can sometimes fall into the emotional trap of becoming obsessed over their weight and become compulsive when training. A teen who develops an all or nothing perfectionist behavioral pattern and extreme “Type A” personality traits, with a need to be the best at everything may be exhibiting traits of an eating disorder. When a teen suddenly starts becoming fixated on exercise the way others are fixated on controlling their food intake they can become excessively preoccupied with perfecting their body. If there’s one thing that everyone who deals with teenagers with eating disorders would urge parents to do is to keep an open communication with your children and to stay up to date with how their doing socially and emotionally. Just because your teen is depressed does not mean they are going to develop an eating disorder. It is important to remember there is no one factor that directly leads to eating disorders. All loving parents want their children to be healthy and happy, so it’s important to intervene and get help when you do see the signs. It’s also important to create a healthy, loving environment and to look for changes in their self esteem. Maintaining a healthy body image and self esteem is important for a happy life and is obtainable for those who appreciate their own uniqueness. Maintaining a perfect weight isn’t. There is no perfect weight.

The Bax 3000 laser therapy helps to re-condition the body and nerve system to no longer perceive substances as harmful, thus calming down the immune system and the body. The laser carries digitized substances (e.g. cat, egg, dust, pollen), into specific allergy points of the body at the same time, producing endorphins. By introducing a positive stimulus in conjunction with the specific stress inducing substance…symptoms can be reduced or eliminated. The laser reduces the neurological stress associated with the substance!

• Food Allergies • Cat & Dog Allergies • Pollen, Molds, Dustmite Allergies and Much More • ADHD, Eczema, Asthma, Sinusitis, Post Nasal Drip

ADVANCED BAX-3000 LASER THERAPY

Q: What allergies can the BAX-3000 identify? A: The BAX-3000 computer has over 96,000 substances in the advanced procedures libraries. These substances are stored in the computer in the form of a digital frequency that matches the energetic frequency of the real substance.

FDA APPROVED

WATCH success stories at: www.allergylaserrelief.com or youtube.com, Bax 3000

Q: Is the Bax 3000 Safe? A: Yes, the Bax 3000 is FDA cleared and safe for all ages, including children. No negative side effects!

TESTIMONIALS Edward age 45 reported, “I had severe pollen allergies for years and 2009 was the first year I got no Ragweed allergies. It works...amazing!”

Stephen age 11 reported, “I had severe cat allergies that caused my eyes to swell horribly. After six laser treatments for cat I can now play with cats without any reactions and it’s been over six months since my last laser treatment.”

Dr. William Johnson has practiced in the wellness and holistic field for over 12 years. He currently practices holistic allergy care, nutrition, cessation of smoking and spinal rehab care. His objective is to empower people to reclaim their full potential and health by reducing the stress placed on the body and nerve system through structural spinal care, proper nutrition, laser care and exercise. He currently writes articles for a local publication and lectures on how to “Eat Well, Move Well and Think Well.” He also works closely with local high-school sports teams.

Dr. William Johnson, B.S., D.C. 221 South Middletown Rd. Nanuet Advanced Laser Therapy for: Quit Smoking, Migraines, Brain Fog, Weight Loss, Shingles and Chronic Viral Illness

Q: How many visits are needed? A: The number of visits required depends entirely on the severity of the case. It depends upon how many and what types of allergies the patient has. A typical patient might require 2, 6, 10 or 30 visits. Q: How long is a typical visit? A: The typical first visit last 60 minutes. Normal treatment visits are no longer than 10 minutes. Q: Is this an insurance-reimbursable service? A: All insurances vary. Call our office and we will check to see what your insurance will contribute to care.

They are lit at midnight and burn until dawn on Memorial Day, then refueled at dark and burn til midnight again. Veterans stand watch, changing shifts through the night, and day, and night, as they had a generation ago.” –Vietnam Veterans of America, Rockland County’s Chapter
