Hallandale Beach remains innovative and progressive • FIRST OF TWO PARTS. By Mayor Joy Cooper Thank you very much for taking time out of your schedule to participate in this year’s State of the City Address. It is a true honor to serve as Hallandale’s Beach’s Mayor. The city that is Progressive Innovative and yes filled with opportunity. While most cities are still struggling through the recession our strategic and financial planning has kept us in the black. We have continued to balance our budget maintaining a healthy reserve and providing a high level of service though an accessible and accountable government. Unlike many cities that are having union battles, we have negotiated all of our contracts to be addressed at future costs.

Using the best technology and tools available, 1st Priority Restoration can get rid of the mold in your home or business before it becomes a serious problem.

Rickee Brown, Lois Lovett-Gianos, & Jack Vil (26 year employee) are ready for the grand re-opening of Nick’s Restaurant in Hallandale Beach.

NICK'S RESTAURANT IS BACK! The year was 1962, Nick Gianos opened a Harrison Street eatery in Hollywood that would soon establish itself as one of the best places to eat breakfast and a hearty lunch. With an opportunity to move to Hallandale Beach in 1969, when finding a great meal was nearly impossible, Gianos settled in and began a love affair with a community and a loyal client base that loved great a surface that is not yet releasing enough spores so it is visible.

1st Priority From Pge 1A ––––––––––––––––––––– can spread to big damage, it's 1st Priority's job to eliminate it. The first step in eliminating mold is to do a professional inspection. Just as they do to find water leaks, 1st Priority technicians will use non-invasive thermal imaging to find areas of moisture that are hospitable to spores. To make sure they identify the existence of mold at the earliest stage possible, they will do three types of testing: air quality, wall cavity, and tape samplings. The samples are sent to an outside lab, and results are usually returned within 48 hours. IT'S BETTER TO HIRE 1ST PRIORITY It doesn’t take much time for a water leak to do extensive damage to your home or business. In fact, it can happen just hours after the leak occurs. 1st Priority a licensed building contractor for mold remediation and mold assessment has 10 years experience in the industry. They can use that experience to find the leak and fix it quickly, using the latest. state-of-the-art technology. Its noninvasive, infrared thermal imaging equipment can detect the precise location of the leak within a wall or up to 12 feet underground, greatly minimizing the area of wall or floor that needs to be removed. When the leak is fixed, technicians will fully restore the area to its original condition using all new materials. To save the home and business owner time and money, 1st Priority will work directly with your insurance company. Its professional staff will identify and assess both visible and hidden damage, submit all bills, and take care of any negotiations. There is no outof-pocket cost for the home or business owner. This helps you to avoid headaches now as well as in the future. The insurance company adjuster wants the best outcome for the insurance company, and may not actively seek out unseen damage that is behind walls or under floors. 1st Priority, however, advocates for

the homeowner, and its technicians will use their skills and experience to identify even the hidden damage that may cause problems in the future if it is not fixed. HOW DO LEAKS HAPPEN? Some leaks happen when water gets in from the outside, such as after a heavy rain or flood. Others can occur within your plumbing system and will unnecessarily increase your water bill. Determining whether you have this kind of leak is easy. Simply read your water meter just before leaving the house for several hours or going to sleep for the night. When you return, or wake in the morning, read the meter again. If no leak exists, the readings should be about the same. If the second reading is higher, you probably have a leak that is driving up your costs and may be causing unseen damage. If you suspect you have a leak, don’t wait. Call 1st Priority Restoration immediately to fix the problem. IS MOLD MAKING YOUR HOME TOXIC? 1st Priority specializes in ridding your home or business of mold that may be making the air you breathe toxic. When mold exists, it can exacerbate symptoms of asthma and other respiratory ailments, as well as cause coughing, sneezing, and headaches. And some people are highly allergic to it. WHAT IS MOLD? Mold is a living organism that can grow very rapidly under certain conditions. It reproduces by emitting microscopic spores that float through the air and land on damp surfaces, where they begin to feed on the material on which they are resting. Thousands of different kinds of molds exist, and some are known allergens. A few produce harmful chemicals called mycotoxins that can seriously affect many parts of the body. But all molds, in the right conditions and in high enough concentrations, can adversely affect human health. Getting rid of mold is

vital to keeping the environment in your home or business a healthy one. GOODBYE, MOLD Once technicians determine that mold exists, they remove it completely. It is not enough to kill it, because injurious chemicals and proteins can remain even in dead mold. Permeable material such as drywall must be treated or replaced. Because spores are released during the removal process, 1st Priority Restoration uses an air scrubber to keep the spores from settling. Then, a special filtering system effectively traps the spores to clean furniture and other surfaces. After the removal is finished, 1st Priority technicians restore the area to its original condition with new materials. OZONE TREATMENT If your home or business has an unpleasant odor due to smoke damage or biohazards, 1st Priority Restoration can help. Technicians will use a highly effective ozone treatment to eliminate the odor and restore the air quality. 1st PRIORITY RESTORATION: They Will Take care of The Problem From A to Z 1st Priority Restoration does it all. Whatever the source of damage or contamination to your home or business might be, 1st Priority can identify it, repair it, sanitize it and restore the area to its original condition, all while working directly with your insurance company. The company provides start-to-finish, 24-hour service 365 days a year for repairing water, fire and smoke or wind damage, leak detection and repair, and ozone treatment. Technicians follow through with debris clean-up, manipulation and packing, storage, cleaning and sanitizing, using the latest technology to restore your property and belongings to its pre-loss condition. To save you time, 1st Priority can work directly with your insurance company. 1st Priority Restoration provides the fast action and thorough service that are the most important factors

in reducing or eliminating structural damage. Disaster does not knock at the door—it

From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––––– that 2013 was a banner year for returns that will help our bottom line going into 2014. Our pension has received a clean audit. Even our auditor stated our performance was one of the highest of all the pensions he has audited. Our city is also seeing a pick-up in redevelopment. Many people complain about development and redevelopment but fail to see the connection bricks and mortar has to our tax base. There is a direct correlation between increases in the tax base and revenues to pay for services. We continue to strive for balanced redevelopment weighing all the pros and cons of every project. Currently, we are working with Treasure Coast Planning Agency to craft regulations for our Regional Activity Center with an eye on Form Based Codes. These measures will make our code easier to navigate when building or establishing a business. We are keenly watching what takes place in Tallahassee. Legislators like to boast that they are cutting taxes but the reality is these tax cuts fall on the shoulders of the cities in reduced shared revenues to pay our bills. They have already proposed sales tax cuts, corporate business tax cuts and telecommunication tax cuts. With all this said, we will still have to sharpen our pencils during this budget year, which has already kicked off. There are so many

projects taking place outside and inside of City Hall. I think the best adjective to describe the state of our city is “busy!” I am sure our city staff would agree. I want to take a moment to introduce them. It is great to see our strategic plan in action and these are the amazing professionals that have been transforming our vision into action on a day-to-day basis. No business can operate without a long-term vision and a strategic plan to get there. It is like preparing a sail boat, rigging the sails and then not casting off. The first strategic plan in Hallandale Beach was implemented back when I first became mayor. Along with the commission, we agreed that it is not about our vision. It is about our stakeholder’s needs and concerns. Over the years and through three city managers our strategic planning has evolved and become much more sophisticated. The policy of conducting professional surveys of our stakeholder every two years has really helped us to gage our progress and get the pulse of our community. We do alternate residential and business surveys. This practice combined with hands on workshops has really helped to engage our stakeholders. This year we will be conducting our business survey. As Mayor, I have always approached my job with this philosophy “all stakeholders are my bosses.” Eventhough you may not vote. Or even if you did not vote for me.

I consider all of you my boss. With that said my leadership style and vision includes performing my job by listening, educating myself on issues and utilizing my knowledge and experience to make an informed decision for the greater good of our city. The other day I told someone I am all about people, policy and work. The process of fact finding is vital to our long term goals. Organizations that are only focused on day-today operations without a plan for the future will not get anywhere. And while the past is important as a learning tool it is simply that, the past. A good captain keeps his daily log but is always checking his charts, making sure all his equipment passes muster and the crew is given clear orders. And always casts off with a positive vision. Luckily our city commission has pretty much been on the same page with our course. I have to mention that democracy, like any ship has to weather storms once and in awhile over the past year and half since the last election, we have fared them all well. According to a recent survey, our city is moving in the right direction. Approval ratings on how we are handling our finances and other areas of concerns ranked very well. There is still always room for improvement! From our strategic planning efforts and listening to our stakeholders, we have established 9 priorities areas; • Create local jobs and a business friendly environment • Promote Quality Economic Development • Improve functionally and affordability of our

infrastructure • Operational excellence • Improve safety security and comfort • Establish a cohesive visual appeal citywide • Maintain a civil and respectful government • Improve accessibility and engagement • Improve quality of life and service • Become a vibrant destination While these are all joint shared priorities as Mayor, I have kept pushing and staying on top of many other issues; Education, public safety, transportation, water infrastructure and environmental issues. These all remain vital aspects of a sustainable city. From the last two budgets, we have been able to provide what our stakeholders want and deserve, while keeping taxes and fees in line. We remain sensitive that everyone is gradually coming out of the recession and thankfully we are on a course to recovery. We continue investing in infrastructure. The dirt, dust and traffic jams around our city are proof that everyone’s tax dollars are being put to work to enhance the quality of services. There are just some growing pains taking place now that are temporary. Please pardon our dust! There is smooth sailing at the end of the inlet. The NE Drainage project, an $8 million dollar improvement is almost completed with the majority of work being done by the end of March. I assure everyone that the area will be put back the way it was found and in some cases even better. The A1A water main replacement project will be done in March as well.

These projects could not be performed without thoughtful strategic planning. The city even reduced water rates this year while improving the water delivery systems because we had a sound financial plan. This summer the total facelift of A1A will take place and residents on our Beach will finally have the FDOT project that was delayed since the beginning of the recession. Our new computer operating system is currently being implemented with a public roll out schooled for April. IT is not that glamorous but this $2 million plus investment of tax dollars in technology will change the way we do business. I know I spoke about this project two years ago and this was one of my major goals. My push to get the commission to move this project up and spend tax dollars during the recession and it has paid off. While the economy was slower, we had the time and vision to set the stage and prepare for the future with a new foundation, a brand new citywide operations system. I would like to say Hallandale Beach is going to be the 2014 winner of the “Biggest Loser” Contest. We have shed years of fat – In this case “red tape”. Our staff went through an internal evaluation of what our strengths and weaknesses are. They listened to resident’s business owners and their bosses, the commission. They shed old antiquated habits, improved and streamlined every department. They are now a lean, mean fighting machine. Currently they are still in

training. Boot camp has taken them through weekends and countless hours of learning and practicing on new equipment. It has been hard work but when the new system is rolled out our city operations will be more accessible and efficient for every stakeholder. The new financial system will make working with our city much faster and easier. You will have access to pay bills on-line, sign up for park programs, register your business, check code information and much more. We will finally be up to par with our non-governmental counterparts. Governments are not corporations but they can certainly run like one. Our customers will have access to the HB mobile app with multiple widgets to get you access to what you need with a simple touch of your smart phone. “E complaint tracking,” Government Virtual Town Hall Meetings, Enhanced web TV and archive services, all new HBTV and most importantly on-line building permitting services! IN PART 2 City Manager Miller and her executive team have been doing customer service training and enhancing human resources.

Many of the rundown businesses had actually been demolished - and while there were many vacancies along the heavily traveled street many are looking for things to change - for the better. The addition of the Walmart Supercenter

"Anytime you add a mix of newer stores with a Publix, it always does an area very good," said Kevin Harris, who has owned a home in the neighborhood for 22 years. "When we found that this was going to be something like this, it made a lot of us much happier." The area around Sheridan Street and U.S. 1 has been compared a lot over the years to many of the areas around the "441 Corridor." There was nothing really appealing about to attract anyone to come to. But for residents like Harris or businesses owners like Rosh Lewin - it means just about everything. With several stores, restaurants and specialty shops, the idea was to give the West Lake Commons a much more upscale look - and attract many who use the road each and every day. "This is a huge asset for any city to have such a major piece of land that will be devoted to bringing in better clientele," Lewis explained. "I see things getting better for all of us - because frankly it was never appealing to come in here." WHAT WERE THEY WAITING FOR?

While the facility tried to stay alive - with everything from the defunct Millennium Mall to plans for medical buildings and housing, the property became an eyesore and was a source for every politician to do little in the name of pushing the sale or demolition of a great piece of real estate. For over 15 years, there was enough headshaking and fingerpointing to fill several volumes of the blame game - until finally - it was announced last year that a Walmart Su-

A Hallandale Beach landmark since 1969, returns better than ever before

With a planned grand re-opening scheduled for St. Patrick's Day weekend (Mar. 14-16), diners will start to notice the changes as soon as they walk in with new granite counters. What they will be greeted by now are specialty items that you can order in house as well as take home with you.

Nick’s From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––––– ing about for generations. So popular had Nick's Restaurant become that Gianos expanded in size twice by 1999, and before his death in 2002, was considered one of the most recognized businesses in Hallandale Beach. With his wife, Lois Lovett-Gianos, left to run things over the next seven years, in 2009, the landmark that had been so much a part of the south Florida landscape, had been sold. While the quality of the restaurant spiraled downward with the food and products not being what it had once was - the new ownership had taken a product that earned such a solid reputation - and lost plenty of loyal diners.

THE RETURN OF NICK'S While Nick's eventually would close the one person who really had the largest stake in the entire future was the building owner Stephen Riemer, who instead of just holding on put his business sense into action when he purchased the building with the idea of bringing back the original product with a few major upgrades. Riemer, who owns a number of properties within Hallandale Beach, felt that in the best interest of the community and redeveloping "Schmatta Row", the landmark was a must to bring back.

"Our idea, from the beginning was to keep the menu intact, but also make this facility a destination rather than just a neighborhood restaurant," Riemer pointed out. "We have put in over $100,000 and three months into this to make the changes needed to give our customers the experience they deserve." With a planned grand re-opening scheduled for St. Patrick's Day weekend (Mar. 14-16), diners will start to notice the changes as soon as they walk in - with new granite counters. What they will be greeted by now are specialty items that you can order in house as well as take home with you. "Jersey Shore Super Hotdogs, Old Monmouth Peanut Brittle, Goshen Farms Vermont Maple Syrup and other items you can only get here at Nick's will always be featured," Riemer explained. "You will also be greeted at the door by 'Arthur' - our wooden manikin and even have the chance to play songs for just .5 cents on our Wurlitzer 750 Jukebox. There are a lot more great changes ahead as well." The restaurant's charm also will be enhanced by Riemer's

personal Tin Toy Collection that will bring out the kid in everyone of all ages. FOOD IS ALWAYS SPECIAL While the picture of that freshly roasted 32-pound turkey that is served up all day will always play on your tastebuds, there are so many items to choose from. The new Super Burger will also highlight the menu. This 13oz. sandwich will satisfy just about any hunger you may have. "The specialty items that we are putting on the menu are all going to be things customers will not be able to get anywhere else," Riemer said. "We'll feature name brand condiments, feature five different hot sauces, offer Coke products and fresh New York Rye Bread daily." THE OLD FAVORITES While the large breakfast selection is still very much in place, it's the fresh hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, soups, salads and other delicious lunch items that will only be enhanced by the new specialty items that have been added. "Nick's has always been the place to eat great food," Riemer pointed out. "While

breakfast and lunch have always been popular, it's tough to argue what we have for dinner, too." From delicious meatloaf, London Broil, New York Strip, Baked Virginia Ham, Chicken Parmigiana, Grilled Liver & Onions, Homemade Beef Stew, the simply delicious Macaroni & Cheese - and six different fish and seafood items, every member of the family will have an easy choice. You always have to leave room for dessert, and with fresh cakes, puddings, jello, fresh fruit, ice cream and New York Cheesecake, the choices are simply endless. BEER ON TAP Nick's will now be home to four beers on tap - all served up in a large, frozen mug that will go along with just any of the dishes served. FAMILIAR FACES RETURN In addition to getting a chance to see the upgraded facility and the return of Lois,

Hailed as one of the most powerful stories ‘War Horse’ make its way to Florida’s Arsht Center By Eleanor Hannan "War Horse" is a remarkable and powerfully moving, imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs. The show is one of phenomenal inventiveness and imagination that has played to packed theatres in London, New York and Canada. Unbelievable lifesized puppets created by a South Africa Puppet Company and brings to life breathing, galloping and charging horses that are durable and strong enough for men to actually ride. At the outbreak of World War 1, because a family feud over a horse named Joey, the animal is forced to travel from the English countryside to the fields of France and Germany, causing a young boys’ beloved horse to be sold to the calvary. Caught up in enemy fire, the horse is made to serve on both sides of the war, yet survives, leaving him alone in a land belonging to no one. The boy, Albert, now grown to a young man, but not old enough to enlist, who has never forgotten his horse, sets out on a journey and dangerous mission to find him. More than just a compelling tale, "War Horse" is a magnificent story impossible to describe for its incredible inventiveness, let alone the most magical production ever staged. The charging horses, on stage, are built of steel, leather and aircraft cables and that is only a few of the elements in this astounding elaborate production.

PEMF technology was a topic on one of DR. OZ TV shows. We are simply letting you know facts that Dr. Oz stated about PEMF Treatment on his program."

Chronic pain is debilitating, and quickly erodes quality of life. Now, a new medical technology allows many patients suffering from back or joint pain to avoid surgery and return to the activities and lifestyles they enjoyed previously. Map PEMF Therapy is a painless noninvasive method of delivering a pioneering new branch of an invisible treatment that provides a revolutionary cure you were waiting for. A rapid acceleration which recovers and restores a pain-free lifestyle. The treatment works on all joint problems, tears, sprains, fractures and repetitive injuries such as carpel tunnel, arthritis, and osteoarthritis. What’s truly amazing about MAP PEMF Therapy is that it actually regrows cartilage as well as increases bone density. It has been used by thousands of people, including many professional ath-

letes. MAP PEMF Therapy can help patients avoid hip and knee replacements and provide rapid alternative recovery methods. It is now available at the Joint and Muscle Treatement Center in Hallandale Beach. HOW IT WORKS If you have ever held two

magnets in your hands, tried to force them together, and felt a resistance between them, then you have experienced a magnetic field. PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields, which are widely used these days to improve circulation and cell metabolism. The body can become accustomed to nonmoving (or

static) magnetic fields, which are generally unable to deeply penetrate the body. A pulsed electromagnetic field, however, is quite dynamic, is able to penetrate all the way through the body, and creates a cascade of effects within the body. The MAP PEMF Therapy uses moving magnets creating an energy wave which changes the way your body copes with pain. The electrical magnets affect the nerve cells which are electrical cells and the magnetic fields affect how the nerves fire and quiet them down without using drugs increasing circulation in the area and aid the healing. Inside the MAP there are electrical coils, and when electricity passes through there it creates a magnetic field that moves through the body whispering at 75 trillion cells in your body going deep into your body where sports creams and heating pads

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, PEMF. How does it work?

All living cells within the body possess potentials between the inner and outer membrane of the cell, which, under normal healthy circumstances, are fixed. Different cells, e.g. Muscle cells and Nerve cells, have different potentials of about -70 mV respectively. When cells are damaged, these potentials change such that the balance across the membrane changes, causing the attraction of positive sodium ions into the cell and negative trace elements and proteins out of the cell. The net result is that liquid is attracted into the interstitial area and swelling or edema ensues. The application of pulsed magnetic fields has, through research findings, been shown to help the body to restore normal potentials at an accelerated rate, thus aiding the healing of most wounds and reducing swelling faster. The most effective frequencies found by researchers so far, are very low frequency pulses of a 50Hz base. These, if gradually increased to 25 pulses per second for time periods of 600 seconds (10 minutes), condition the damaged tissue to aid the natural healing process. Pain reduction is another area in which pulsed electromagnetic therapy has been shown to be very effective. Pain signals are transmitted along nerve cells to pre-synaptic terminals. At these terminals, channels in the cell alter due to a movement of ions. The membrane potential changes, causing the release of a chemical transmitter from a synaptic vesicle contained within the membrane. The pain signal is chemically transferred across the synaptic gap to chemical receptors on the post-synaptic nerve cell. This all happens in about 1/2000th of a second, as the synaptic gap is only 20 to 50 nm wide. As the pain signal, in chemical form, approaches the post-synaptic cell, the membrane changes and the signal is transferred. If we look at the voltages across the synaptic membrane then, under no pain conditions, the level is about 70 mV. When the pain signal approaches, the membrane potential increases to approximately +30 mV, allowing a sodium flow. This in turn triggers the synaptic vesicle to release the chemical transmitter and so transfer the pain signal across the synaptic gap or cleft. After the transmission, the voltage reduces back to its normal quiescent level until the next pain signal arrives. The application of pulsed magnetism to painful sites causes the membrane to be lowered to a hyper-polarization level of

about -90 mV. When a pain signal is detected, the voltage must now be raised to a relatively higher level in order to fire the synaptic vesicles. Since the average change of potential required to reach the trigger voltage of nearly +30 mV is +100 mV, the required change is too great and only +10 mV is attained. This voltage is generally too low to cause the synaptic vesicle to release the chemical transmitter and hence the pain signal is blocked. The most effective frequencies that have been observed from research in order to cause the above changes to membrane potentials, are a base frequency of around 100Hz and pulse rate settings of between 5 and 25Hz.

Herbal remedies for stress and/or anxiety Many stress and anxiety symptoms are similar: Tension, emotional instability, loss of focus, heart palpitations and breathing problems… Simply removing the stressful situation or circumstances, leaving them behind, or just doing something to correct the condition allows one to return to a more relaxed sense of being. Anxiety disorder includes a nagging dread of an unknown future, general phobias, or post traumatic stress despite even apparently pleasant current circumstances. In today's upside down world, this is understandable. Continual stress or anxiety builds up cortisone, which leads to a hormonal imbalance that results in serious health issues or chronic fatigue from depleted adrenals. Handling stress better or overcoming anxiety through exercise and/or meditation are becoming more popular. There are better choices, all natural and mostly without side effects. Keep in mind that the effects from herbal remedies, though effective, are not always as immediate as pharmaceutical medicines. St. John's Wort is perhaps the most well known herbal remedy for anxiety or stress. It's been around for centuries and was widely used during the Renaissance and Victorian periods to relieve mental conditions. Passion flower is a recognized, powerful nervous system relaxant. It's popular in the UK, and Germany's Commission E has approved it for nervous conditions, sleep disorders, and anxiety. It also contains antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Holy Basil is another herb with a wide range of powerful health benefits that include relieving stress and anxiety. The monicker Holy Basil was coined by Ayurveda practitioners at least 5,000 years ago. It is an adaptogenic herb, meaning it helps relieve what needs attention and is able to handle many stressors. It confers a State of Non-specific Increased Resistance (SNIR) that helps the body resist stress. Licorice Root helps the body handle stressful situations, normalize blood sugar levels, and boost your adrenal glands. It is also thought to stimulate cranial and cerebospinal fluid to help calm the mind. Valerian root, chamomile, and lemon balm teas are often used to help calm restlessness and resolve insomnia. They also have mild anxiety or stress reducing qualities and are very relaxing. They can be used with any of these other herbs listed if there is still a problem getting a good night's sleep.

Progressive Telemedicine now available at Healthy Hallandale Medical Center with great results You wake up in the morning, your throat is sore and the thought of getting in the car and taking a ride to see the doctor is not the first thing on your mind. As you wait for that moment to feel just a little bit better, so you can get some medication to start improving, you are beginning to get tired and wear down from not feeling well. In the past, it would be a matter of pushing yourself to see the doctor. But now there is an alternative. One that you can get only at Healthy Hallandale Medical Center. Welcome to Telemedicine - where the transmission of medical data from patient to doctor via phone, live video conference or email can take place from the comfort of your own home and provide that

relief until you can get to the office. The idea is just another in the long line of what has made Dr. Cornell Calinescu so progressive in a medical community often tempted to go up and beyond, but never takes the time to see what positive results will come out of it. "This is perfectly legal and something that serves as a bridge for our patients until they feel better and come in to the office for more treatment and a follow-up," said Dr. Calinescu. "Telemedicine is really the future of medicine, and we wanted to be on that ground floor." Telemedicine is easy and very effective in diagnosing as patient and doctor have that one-one-one visual contact along with a great way of communicating when they are not feeling so

well. It's as easy as establishing a medium (laptop, tablet, home computer or phone) to provide the direct communication. There are so many positives to Telemedicine - such as the convenience of avoiding further infection at the doctors office, avoiding a mis-diagnosis, which often happens when less time is spent on the patient. The benefits of this ground-breaking video medical treatment helps you connect with a doctor that knows your history and understands what types of medication and treatment you respond to. It also opens up those lines of communication that are often vital. The results will come faster because there is nothing standing in the way of finding out and seeing all symptoms involved. "I'm sure that a lot

of us have said it would be great if we could see our own physician without leaving home," Dr. Calinescu explained. "This is the direction that medicine is headed." While having severe chest pains and other issues would warrant a trip to the emergency to rule out anything that could be life-threatening, Telemedicine deals with low acuity symptoms/ailments that do not have the potential to be life threatening. While there are so many questions that potential patients want to ask, one of the most important things that all patients should know is that most private insurers such as Aetna, Cigna, BCBS, UHC, Humana and Wellcare will accept the program. HOW DO I SIGN UP

The easiest part of learning what Telemedicine does and how it works can be found by going to the website and click on: IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL. That will take you right to GoGoHealth is a virtual clinic which connects patients with their doctors for treatment of low-acuity, common illnesses. The solution allows for doctors to virtually care for their patients, to see more patients, and to improve patients satisfaction by caring for them faster and more conveniently. "It's real easy to get started," Dr. Calinescu explained. "Give us a call today and we'll show you how to maximize what we have to offer all of our patients."

Not Another Headache! In order to find lasting relief, it is necessary to remove its cause The overused excuse “I’ve got a headache” is more real than you may think. Headaches affect almost everyone. More people go to doctors regarding headaches than for any other reason. And many leave with painkillers that provide temporary relief, but do nothing to help cure the problem. In order find lasting relief from headache pain, it is necessary to remove its cause. However, it can be somewhat tricky in determining the cause. In many cases headaches are a result of muscle tension in the neck and/or back from prolonged sitting, improper posture, physical or emotional stress, or from spinal misalignment. Many headaches are caused by an underlying illness or infection or by disturbances in the blood vessels in the head. Other factors that have been found to be involved are allergies, improper digestion, constipation, head injury, overstrained eyes, blood sugar imbalances, side effects from medication or drugs, hormonal imbalances, irregular sleeping habits, substance withdrawal, food additives, pollution, and changing weather patterns. Certain conditions such as brain tumors, arterial inflammation and irritation of the facial nerves can also cause headaches, but are extremely rare. Determining the type of headache you get is often the best first step in discovering its cause. Following is a brief description of the most common headaches. • Cervicogenic – is often produced by sustained contraction of the muscles of the head and neck. You may experience dull to moderate, non pulsating pain and tension at the base of the skull that can encircle the head. • Cluster – hard-driving and striving individuals that drink and/or smoke are prone to these headaches. They are identified by excruciating pain –orbital and often concentrated around one eye. Tears, nasal congestion, and facial flushing can also be present. • Hypertension – this type of headache awakens you in the morning and subsides during the day. The pain is less severe when seated and worsens when lying down – pulsating band of pressure around the middle of the head is common. • Migraine – a classic type is proceeded by an aura (flickering vision or a tunnel like effect). Both common and classic migraines can produce severe throbbing pain that last from two to seventy two hours. The pain is usually concentrated on one side of the head.

HEALTH QUEST By Dr. DiCarlo Premier Total Healthcare Often nausea is experienced, vomiting and sensitivity to light or sound is common. • Tension – headaches start as a tight band feeling around the sides of the head that spreads over the top of the head. The pain is thought to be due to spasm of the scalp muscle, or from carrying stress in the muscles of the face, neck, shoulders and upper back. The pain usually gets worse as the day progresses. Given the problems associated with chronic use of aspirin and other pain relievers and muscle relaxing drugs, perhaps addressing the cause of you headaches and focusing on their prevention would be the better approach. HEADACHE PREVENTION All headaches are exacerbated by stress, be it chemical, emotional, or physical in nature. Be aware of what you expose your body to, it is

essential in determining the cause of your headaches. *Eat a whole foods diet – organic if possible. Avoid excessive sugars, fried foods, and any food that has been processed or smoked. *Avoid food additives, e.g. aspartame, MSG, nitrates, sulfates, BHT. *Identify and avoid know allergies/triggers. Common ones are alcohol, tobacco, chocolate, whey, cheese, mild, nuts and caffeine. *Don’t let yourself get extremely hungry – eat small regular meals to help regulate your blood sugar. *Keep a journal of what’s happening in your life – your moods, eating habits, exercise, stress, etc. This may be helpful in determining triggers or possible causes. *Get the proper amount of sleep for you – too much or too little can be a problem either way. *Exercise regularly – walking, sports, tai chi – just do something that moves you at least four days per week. It improves the circulation and helps to reduce or eliminate stress. *Explore natural relaxation therapies, e.g. massage, yoga, and meditation. *Express your emotion, and learn to forgive and accept people for who they are. *Quit smoking; avoid second hand smoke and other toxic pollutants. *Have your spine checked for misalignments and imbalances. Chiropractic adjustments are safe and natural

treatment aimed at fixing underlying structural problems. In addition to Chiropractic care, we here at Premier Total Healthcare offer food allergy testing and have

several detoxification programs designed to identify and eliminate toxic build up and reduce the chemical stress on our bodies.

Crucial steps needed for healthy and safe homes in 2014 (BPT) - As Americans brace for more snow, ice and below-freezing temperatures this winter, education about and protection from residential fire and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning become increasingly important. This is especially true considering that U.S. residential fire and CO deaths and injuries account for far more fatalities in most years than all natural disasters combined. Since 2003, roughly 3,000 Americans have died each year in house fires, the equivalent of one person every three hours, every day. Additionally, nearly 20,000 people are sent to emergency rooms annually due to CO poisoning an average of 55 people every day. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), most home fires and CO poisonings occur in the winter. As your family cranks up the heat or uses the fireplace to stay warm, remember to clear snow and debris from flues and outside exhaust vents, place generators outside if there is a power outage and keep flammable materials at least 3 feet away from any heat source. To help keep your home worry-free from fire and CO this winter, the experts at Kidde Fire Safety recommend these five simple steps: 1. Replace smoke alarms more than 10 years old with units featuring a 10year sealed-in battery. Kidde's Worry-Free line provides a decade of continuous protection with no low-battery chirps. 2. Place fire extinguishers on every level of your home, and make sure they are within reach. 3. Install CO alarms on each floor and near bedrooms. 4. Develop and practice an escape plan with your family. Know two ways out of each room. 5. Pledge to keep your family safe and reduce the risk that firefighters face when responding to a home fire at Extreme weather conditions should serve as a timely reminder to take stock in home emergency preparations. Take these steps to help protect your loved ones today. For more safety tips and information, visit

Boomers: 5 daily tactics to defy aging in 10 minutes or less (BPT) - Determined, vivacious, passionate a lot of words describe America's estimated 78 million baby boomers. This spirited group is redefining their golden years, staying active by working, traveling and enjoying the great outdoors. They know that in order to live life to the fullest, they must make their health a priority, and many are dramatically affecting their personal wellbeing with a few key activities that take 10 minutes or less a day to complete. Tavis Piattoly is a sports dietitian, expert nutritionist and cofounder of My Sports Dietitian. He stresses that small daily activities can have a cumulative effect on health, and therefore encourages baby boomers to consistently stay active and eat well. He suggests five ways boomers can keep their health on track in 10 minutes each day: 1. Quick exercises "Exercise should be enjoyable, so whether it is a brisk walk, strength training or participating in a sport, enjoying what you do will increase your chance of sticking with that activity," says Piattoly. He recommends boomers incorporate strength training into their workout routine to prevent loss of muscle tissues - a concern that increases with aging. Here are three simple exercises: • Chair squats - Use any chair and perform 10 to 12 repetitions standing up and sitting down. To increase difficulty, hold a light dumbbell to add resistance.

• Wall push-ups Place arms against a wall and perform 10 to 12 push-ups. If this is too easy, get into the push-up position on the floor, using your knees for support. • Dumbbell curls or soup-can bicep curls Use a light to moderate weight dumbbell (2 to 10 pounds) and perform 10 to 12 bicep curls. Don't have dumbbells? Substitute soup cans. 2. Nutrient-dense foods It takes only minutes to eat a snack or a meal, and what's on your plate fuels your overall health. Piattoly recommends starting with an emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables. "As we age, our immune system is not as strong as it once was to fight off infections and illnesses, and fruits and veggies could play a big role in fighting off heart disease, cancer and agerelated diseases," he says Next, Piattoly recommends eating lean protein like farm-raised eggs, extra lean beef or omega-3-rich salmon at every meal. "Since we lose muscle mass at a rate of around 1 percent per year starting at age 35, a diet rich in protein may minimize the rate

at which we lose muscle," he says. Piattoly also suggests a balance of healthy fats. "Focus on a mix of healthy fats from sources like olive oil, avocados, almonds, sunflower seeds, pistachios and natural peanut butter." 3. Select supplements "Omega-3 fatty acids, especially from fish oil, are beneficial for both brain and cardiovascular health," Piattoly says, noting that multiple research studies have demonstrated that fish oil supplementation is linked with lower levels of beta-amyloid protein, which may lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease. In addition, research shows fish oil supplementation can reduce

arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death, improve triglyceride levels, and increase HDL (good cholesterol). "I recommend taking between 2000 and 3000 mg per day of triglyceridebased fish oil. I personally take and recommend Nordic Naturals. They're the leading manufacturer of omega-3 supplements and all their products are tested for purity and safety." Additionally, because

between 50 to 75 percent of the population has a vitamin D deficiency, Piattoly recommends a vitamin D supplement. "Optimal levels of vitamin D may reduce your risk for cancer and heart disease, as well as improve bone health. Shoot for 2000 IU per day but be sure to speak with your doctor to determine how much you should take," he says.

4. Embrace technology Numerous applications for smartphones and tablets make it easy to track your exercise progress, stay motivated and eat healthy. Best of all, most apps are free and only take a few minutes a day to use. "I'm a big fan of MyFitnessPal, a nice fitness and nutrition app where you can track your activity and what you eat. You can visit or download the app to your smartphone." 5. Be social "One of the best things boomers can do is form a social network of friends who enjoy living a healthier lifestyle," says Piattoly. "Surrounding yourself with active people increases your opportunities for healthy activities. Habits are contagious, so associate with people who enjoy regular exercise."

Brighten Dental Care combines modern technology with old school care and attention • Located in historic Dania Beach, Dr. Chander Gupta and his staff have become a fullservice dental facility

“Old School” in his approach with patients, Dr. Chander Gupta also embraces technology that has taken nearly impossible tasks and made them almost routine.

DANIA BEACH - Chander Gupta is proud of what he has learned in his over 25 years of practicing General Dentistry in south Florida. He also embraces technology that has taken nearly impossible tasks and made them almost routine. Nestled off U.S. 1 in historic Dania Beach, Brighten Dental Care and Dr. Gupta have been making that trip to the dentist, one that eliminates pain in the mouth and in the wallet. If there are things learned in the time he spent in the profession, it's to listen to - and know - each and every patient that you see. Catering to their needs will keep them satisfied and coming back. "The approach we always use here is to work with the patients in any way possible," Dr. Gupta explained. "We want them to be comfortable with any experience they have, so educating them, and working with them when it comes to payment is a priority for us." The trip to the dentist used to be one that was tedious and nervewracking for so many, but thanks to the latest improvements in equipment and procedures, that visit becomes more of a classroom lesson. No matter which room you walk into at Brighten Dental, there is modern day technology - with machinery and TVs, providing interactive information that patients can take part in while work is being done on them. "Sometimes if we are doing a procedure and maybe I fully cannot explain the entire thing to them, we can sit down and watch the actual event take place right there on the TV screen," Dr. Gupta explained. "To me, that is the best thing they could have come up with - because it shows and answers!" While many of his machines and testing equipment would never have been found in any dental office five years ago, lasers, wireless cameras and other forms of aiding and di-

The spacious dental office features several specialty rooms - to better serve and make the experience more positive for pateints. every day. "At the end of the day, what we are all about is to make your mouth healthy," Dr. Gupta said. "We will work out a payment plan for as long as it takes.

The absolute latest in dental technology awaits you at Brighten Dental Care.

agnosing things early is what has changed dental care. "We have a laser that will actually cut around the gum line without touching the bone," Dr. Gupta said. We have ways to save teeth like never before - with treatments and other parts of technology - today and yesterday." Going to a full service dentist is what Brighten has always been about. From the moment you walk in to the expanded location, you are greeted by friendly people who can answer questions and if they can't - they

have a library of everything from magazines to videos and brochures, providing information. Even the website is a form of communicating that was never in place when he started - so that technology continues to help patients with vital information. FULL SERVICE DENTIST A trip to Brighten Dental Care is indeed that total experience - with Bonding & White Fillings, Bridges, Crowns, Dentures, TMJ, Night Guards, Periodontic and Extractions being done

SERVICES ARE A PLENTY When it comes to the services that Brighten Dental Care provides, it is really about results and that's what Dr. Gupta has always prided himself on - and those who work with him. Specialty services range from Dental and Mini Implants to Limeers, Whitening & Bleaching, Veneers, Invisalign, clear braces, traditional braces as well as oral surgeries. "We work with wisdom teeth, bone grafting and sleep apnea as well," Dr. Chander said. "After surgical care is also a part of what we do." Invisalign is a new system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. However, the computer program, which can generate a series of aligners with small

changes is the new part. "We also offer the Snap-On Smile, which is really popular and gives the patient a very good look," Dr. Chandler explained. "It's less expensive and is easy, painless and beautiful." Dr. Chander also offers that when you are serious about taking care of your teeth, a trip to the dentist should come every three months - and not twice a year like many have been taught. "We like to see our patients at least every three months," he admits. "You can't take

your car in for an oil change twice a year. It will never run, so you need to treat your mouth better." For more of what Brighten Dental Care has to offer, give them a call. It will really be the best investment you can make! WE'LL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS • Oral HPV and Oral Cancer? • The Link Between Gum Disease & Heart Attacks? • Gum Disease? • Grind Teeth?

Spring into health with these tasty snack recipes • Healthy snacks can fuel a workout, get you through the day and taste delicious (BPT) - Healthy food that also tastes good is always in vogue and now it's getting a spring makeover. The theme of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) National Nutrition Month (R) this March is "Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right." As spring approaches and fitness routines move outdoors, AND reminds you that healthy snacks can fuel a workout, get you through the day and taste delicious. "It's easy to get stuck in a rut with snacks," notes Becci Twombley, director of sports nutrition at the University of Southern California and ambassador for the American Pistachio Growers. "Spring is a time for renewal - cleaning out closets, setting new goals and making a fresh commitment to health and nutrition. Just as it's important to switch up your exercise routine every few weeks, you want to experiment with different snack combinations and have fun with your food. You'll be more likely to stick

with a healthy routine if you keep it interesting." Twombley's "snacks from scratch" involves some creativity. Try one of her snacking experiments below if you need a snack makeover this spring. 1. Pick one proteinbased ingredient and think about different ways to eat it as a snack. Twombley often recommends pistachios as a performance snack for exercise because, calorie-for-calorie, pistachios pack more protein than most common snacks. Additionally, a serving size of pistachios is 49 nuts (more than any other tree nut), which provides 6 grams of filling protein and 3 grams of fiber for only 160 calories. Research at the University of Toronto and Pennsylvania State University suggests that eating about 1.5-2 ounces of pistachios (about 20 percent of calories) per day helps curb the rise in blood glucose after a meal and lowers blood pressure, blood triglycerides and

LDL-cholesterol, all of which, in turn, lower the risk for metabolic syndrome and heart disease. Researchers at Loma Linda University found that high tree nut consumption was associated with a lower occurrence of obesity and metabolic syndrome, increasing a person's risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and stroke. As a snack ingredient, pistachios can be baked into homemade energy bars, sprinkled on yogurt or combined with dried fruit in a make-your-own trail mix. 2. Work backwards. Think about your favorite snacks, and then experiment with different ways to add new proteins to that snack. For instance, Twombley loves the portability of sport bars, but not the lengthy ingredient list that can accompany some store-bought brands. Instead, Twombley encourages her athletes to make their own sport bars. The Pistachio Sport Bars recipe below combines the protein

power of pistachios with energizing carbohydrates and allows you to control the ingredients in your own kitchen. 3. Get creative with the ultimate snack duo: protein and fiber. Rather than buying a traditional trail mix, make your own mix of pistachios and your favorite dried fruit. Mix pistachios with air popped popcorn for a satisfying and filling post-workout snack. Or make your own easy and portable American Pistachio Fruit Chews, which combine a mixture of fresh and dried fruit and pistachios. PISTACHIO SPORTS BARS

square dish lined with baking paper (9 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches), approximately 1/2 inch deep, and press well into dish. The bars can also be formed individually and then be put on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake the mix in a preheated oven at 350 F for about 10-15 minutes. Cut into bars of approximately 1 1/2 x 2 inches and leave to cool on a tray

1 3/4 cups pistachios 1 cup dried banana chips 1 1/2 cups cornflakes 1/3 cup dried pears 1/3 cup dried apricots 1/3 cup honey 1/3 cup brown sugar 3/4 cup crisp oat flakes Directions: Chop the pistachios coarsely and banana chips finely. Partly crush the cornflakes. Cut the pears and apricots into small cubes. Heat the honey and sugar over a double boiler until the honey and sugar are well combined. Mix in the pistachios, banana chips, cornflakes, pears, apricots and oat flakes. Spread the mixture in a
