18 years of helping women recover from Breast Cancer...


When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 41, I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy. While I was confident that the surgery would help save my life, I was unsure of how my self esteem would be affected afterward.

Fortunately for me, my surgeon referred me to Dr. Spiro—she said he was the best. After meeting with him to discuss my reconstruction options, I came home feeling relaxed and reassured. His honesty and confidence immediately put me at ease. Six months later, after undergoing latissimus flap reconstruction, I am amazed at the results. I never expected to look and feel better than I did before my diagnosis. Thankfully, now when I look in the mirror I no longer see a cancer patient. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Spiro for his skill and expertise, and to his warm and compassionate staff for helping me through such a negative time in my life and creating such a positive outcome. He truly lives up to his reputation.

New Practice for Dr. Aristizabal


r. Michelle Aristizabal, a Montclair-based Obstetrician and Gynecologist, has opened Wombkeepers Obstetrics and Gynecology Maternity Wellness Center. The practice offers what Aristizabal considers to be a balance between traditional OB/GYN and holistic medicine. “We are really changing the whole birthing experience,” she states. “We want women to feel comfortable when they come here, so we put thought into everything—from the cloth gowns to the sheets on the tables. I also wanted women to know that they can have a natural and holistic childbirth experience without sacrificing the experience and safety of a doctor.” The majority of the practice’s staff are trained doulas, and the office features only one exam room in an effort to “slow down” the pace and offer “truly personal, unrushed one-on-one” care to expectant mothers. For more information on Wombkeepers OB/GYN, visit their office, located at 109 Valley Road in Montclair. They can be reached at 973-655-9662 or by visiting

Louis Mauriello

Champion Waste Removal Offers Personalized Care


n the 30-plus years since starting his business, Champion Waste Removal owner Louis Mauriello has watched his longtime customers’ kids grow into adulthood and have children of their own. But that’s not a surprise—his friendly rapport, combined with a professional approach to every project he takes on, is proof that his company continues to thrive well into the 21st century. Mauriello began family-owned-and-operated Champion Waste Removal in the 1980s as a conventional garbage disposal company, but in the ensuing decades, he’s reinvented his business. “We specialize in residential and commercial cleanouts, not only on homes and businesses, but on construction sites as well—but bulk projects are certainly welcome,” he explains. When can Champion Waste Removal help? “If you are moving, you can call us to get rid of unwanted clutter. If you’ve had construction done on your house, you can rent one of our different size dumpsters—or we’ll come ourselves with a crew to physically remove debris.” 36


The company—serving the Northern New Jersey counties of Essex, Passaic, Bergen, Morris, Union, Hudson and Sussex—is more than just cleanouts. Demolition projects are another specialty; of course, the crew cleans up after all demolition work is done. “We work with contractors and homeowners on kitchen and bathroom projects, basements, decks, Jacuzzis, sheds and more,” says Mauriello, who stresses that the list is “endless.” Occasionally, Champion takes care of bank-owned properties, cleaning out or winterizing these homes, as well as doing lawn maintenance on the empty homes during the warmer months. The company also has the Earth’s best interests at heart – “we’re very big on recycling,” he explains – so Champion’s staff sorts larger quantities of debris into cardboard, paper and scrap metal right onsite. While everyone expects professionalism when hiring a company to provide a service, it’s a pleasant surprise to receive compassion when the situation calls for it. “Every customer has a story—people who are less fortunate, or who

October 2013

are going through a hard time,” says Mauriello. “We do our best to put ourselves in the customer’s position. Often, I’m called to the homes of people who have been left with a huge pile of construction debris because a contractor didn’t finish the job. We’ll work with them on price and help them resolve their issue.” Forget automated answering systems— customers can contact Mauriello 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as the company’s main line is forwarded to his cell phone. “I would say 75% of the time you get me live! I’ve been able to maintain a blend of the new world that we work in, but still keep a lot of the old world in it,” he says proudly. Mauriello knows respect and accountability are two of the reasons customers keep coming back to Champion Waste Removal. “If you throw good out there, good comes back to you,” he says. “In my world, the glass is always half full!”  Champion Waste Removal 973-744-6766

Cornerstone House:

Larry Ashcraft

Providing Shelter From Life’s Storms


hen life temporarily takes a turn for the worse, Montclair residents have a safe place to go to pick up the pieces. Since March 1989 The Salvation Army of Montclair has provided clean, safe transitional housing through Cornerstone House. But Cornerstone House is far from being a typical homeless shelter. In fact, it’s the only homeless shelter of its kind in Suburban Essex County. “We help the people who fall through the cracks,” says Corps Officer Larry Ashcraft, operating officer of the Salvation Army Montclair Citadel. “Cornerstone House is a shelter for men, women and intact families. But we don’t take people right off the street.” Ashcraft explains that Cornerstone services people who have some type of income from a disability or have a low-paying job. “They’re the working poor who have been priced out of existing rental facilities or had some type of crisis that drained their finances,” he says. Cornerstone House also differs from other shelters in that it helps people prepare for independent living. Every week, Ashcraft says, the residents meet with a case worker who is actively engaged in helping them find better employment, more permanent housing, or resources that will qualify them for state benefits that they may not have known about.” Cornerstone House also provides residents with newspapers, phones and other tools to help empower them to achieve their goals of being independent again, and it also keeps a log of the resident’s progress. And there have been many success stories. For example, Ashcraft relays the story of a single mother and her two children who

were evicted from their apartment. The mother was laid off from her job, and her unemployment benefits were not enough to pay the rent on a monthly basis. Cornerstone House provided temporary housing for the family and counseled the mother. It also contacted some of the organization’s resources, and helped the woman find not one, but two, jobs so she could regain her independence and provide a home for her family. Cornerstone House has 23 beds, and while the residents share kitchen, dining, and recreational areas, the dormitory-style family bedrooms sleep no more than 4 people to a room and have private bathrooms. Ashcraft says the average occupant stays at Cornerstone House for 90 days. “Rarely do we have an opening, When someone leaves, we fill the bed within a day, sometimes in just a few hours,” he says. Cornerstone House receives financial assistance from Essex County and additional funding from United Way of Northern New Jersey. However, Ashcraft says the shelter is always in need of monetary donations and also such items as new, unopened towels and twin sheets and comforters. There are also plenty of volunteer opportunities, including training residents how to operate computers. “Last year we rendered 8,000 nights of shelter to residents,” says Ashcraft. And the shelter continues to be a source of emergency and transitional housing to those in need and a starting place for second chances. For more information or to donate to Cornerstone House, please visit The Salvation Army’s main office at 13 Trinity Place in Montclair, or by calling 973-744-3312. 

GettinG at the heart of


o you’ve recently enjoyed a spicy meal and now you’re “paying” for it with an acidy, burning feeling in your throat and chest. Most of us have experienced reflux and heartburn from time to time, but they usually go away on their own. For many people, however, these common digestive conditions are chronic and can take the “zest” out of their life (or at the very least their diet!). Gastroesophageal reflux disease—or GeRD—occurs when the valve that connects the esophagus to the stomach weakens, allowing food and acid or bile to back up into the esophagus. This backwash can irritate the lining of the esophagus and cause associated symptoms such as heartburn. Obesity, asthma, diabetes and pregnancy are among the health factors that can contribute to GeRD’s onset. The majority of GeRD cases are remedied with lifestyle changes and overthe-counter (OtC) medications. experts recommend maintaining a healthy weight and wearing loose clothing around your waist, both of which reduce pressure on your stomach. If possible, raise the head of your bed by about six inches to keep stomach contents from traveling backward; you can try either placing blocks under the bed feet or purchasing a specially made wedge from a medical supply store and inserting it between box spring and mattress. and if you smoke, quit, as a nicotine habit can adversely affect the function of the lower sphincter muscle of the esophagus. OtC meds for GeRD typically include antacids like Maalox and tums that quickly neutralize stomach acid; H2-receptor blockers such as Pepcid aC and Zantac that reduce the production of stomach acid; and proton pump inhibitors like Prilosec and Prevacid that block



October 2013


GERD stomach acid production. Very often, these medications are taken in conjunction with one another. If you still don’t find relief after taking them for a few weeks, your doctor can prescribe stronger H-2-receptor blockers and proton pump inhibitors, as well as prokinetic agents that strengthen the valve between the esophagus and stomach. Complementary therapies also may help alleviate GeRD. Herbal remedies such as licorice and chamomile, along with relaxation techniques and acupuncture, are used to reduce symptoms in some cases.

What, How and When to Eat • The key to controlling GeRD is identifying what foods cause your symptoms and then altering your diet accordingly. Start by documenting everything you eat, including the time of day, the details of your eating experience, and any symptoms you have afterward. • Generally, to combat GeRD you should avoid not only your personal trigger foods, but also foods that are spicy, fried, high in fat (especially trans fat) and very hot temperature-wise. Caffeine, garlic, onion, mint, chocolate, alcohol and tomato sauce are some of the most common trigger foods. What experts advise adding to your diet are papaya and pineapple, which contain enzymes that help break down proteins during digestion; omega-3 fatty acids, which assist in boosting immunity and can be taken as supplements or found in foods like salmon; and iodized salt, which aids in maintaining proper levels of iodine and sodium (low levels often are linked with reflux). How and when you eat are just as important to managing GeRD. eat smaller meals, slowly and in an upright position. after eating, don’t lie down or go to bed for at least a few hours. and drink a lot of water. as always, speak with your physician before taking any medications or trying complementary therapies to ensure they are safe for you to do so. When lifestyle changes, medications and diet modifications prove ineffective in minimizing or eliminating GeRD, your doctor may propose more invasive measures like surgery. s For more information:,,,

“ We’re not just dentists.”

“I went to the Silverstrom Group on my lunch hour and came back looking 10 years younger... imagine if I had gone for dinner!” A few of my friends had gone for a “Lunchtime Makeover” to The Silverstrom Group and absolutely raved about it. Now I know why... not only are they award-winning dentists, they are cosmetic artists as well! Gary Silverstrom, DDS

David Silverstrom, DDS, FAGD

I can’t give you all the technical names for what they did, but during my hour they fixed a chipped tooth, smoothed my under eye wrinkles, and whitened my teeth... giving me a brighter, more confident smile! When I got back to my office later that afternoon, all the women noticed the difference... it was that dramatic! Honestly, it was the best hour I ever spent. And it’s not just for women either... I’ve just scheduled an appointment for my husband! Silverstrom Group, all I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you! For a Free Consultation, even Saturdays and evenings... call today!

THREE STRIKES DON’T COUNT YOU OUT PART 2Continued from September… Three factors turned things around for Hearn. “First,” he says, “I recognized that I had a problem. I couldn’t keep wallowing in self-pity; I had to do something for myself. So I got psychiatric help. “Second, I filled my mind with positive things to change my thought process. I became a tape junky and it worked. I listened to Earl Nightingale and other positive and inspirational programs all the time, everywhere I went. After a while, these affirmations began to lift my spirits, and I started thinking more positively. “The third thing that really gave me hope was when I was invited to speak to a Rotary Club in Kansas City by a former Chiefs player. I really didn’t want to go. I was still depressed. But my buddy insisted. After the speech a man approached me and said he was the president of a national speaker’s bureau. He said, ‘You have a great story and you tell it well. Corporate America will pay you to do this because so many people are facing challenges in today’s world.’ I went home and told my wife, ‘I don’t know what all this is about, why I went through all this crap. But today a man told me I could have a big impact on a lot of people.’” These days, Hearn travels all over the country speaking to corpora-

tions, associations, and youth groups. Barry Farber “You can get anything you want in this life if you help enough people get what they want. That’s the theme by which I live my life,” says Hearn. “When I go out and speak today, certainly I get paid nicely, but some of the greatest paychecks are the emotional paychecks I get when people say, ‘I didn’t want to come to this meeting but it was mandatory. These things are so boring. But I’m glad I came today because you really touched me. You had a tremendous impact on my life today.’ It doesn’t get any better than that. If I never had the shoulder injury or had never gotten sick, I would not have had the opportunity to do this. I could’ve played 20 years in the big leagues without the opportunity to impact the lives that I do today.” As Ed Hearn shows us, you have to put your life and its challenges into the proper perspective. Don’t let little things become major stumbling blocks. With the right perspective, we realize they’re only ant hills we trip over. Then we get back up again and go on with our lives. Fire purifies gold. Heat tempers steel. Adversity builds character—if you face it with the right attitude. 

Barry Farber consults with corporations, professional athletes and entertainers helping them market their products and land more deals.

Putting a Fine Point on Pain


ausea, rash, heartburn and stomach ulcers. Dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue and headaches. These maladies and more can be found listed on the labels of many pain relievers as possible side effects. It’s no wonder that more patients are seeking alternative treatments for pain and other conditions in order to avoid unpleasant reactions. At NJ Advanced Acupuncture, with one office in Verona, one in Madison and one to open next month in West Caldwell, head acupuncturist Morgan Reade offers patients another means for treating what ails them.

Q: Why would a patient opt for acupuncture over traditional medical treatment?

Q: Is acupuncture safe? Are there any risks or side effects?

A: Because we are detectives. We are the last people you come to

A: The needles are one-use disposable needles. Acupuncture is one

see after you have been to a primary care physician, a specialist or a chiropractor in order to figure out what everyone else could not. We dig deeper, and if we can’t help you, we will refer you elsewhere so that you can move forward.

Q: What is acupuncture and what types of conditions does it treat? A: Acupuncture uses needles to stimulate the nervous system into

healing. Chinese medicine views the body as a whole. We use the Chinese model integrated with Western medicine. Almost any condition can be treated with acupuncture. Most common conditions are pain, infertility, diabetes, skin and autoimmune conditions. Diet therapy and herbs or supplements are also included in treatment.

Q: Is acupuncture painful? A: Pretty much everyone who comes in is anxious and will say, “You are putting needles in me.” The needles are actually only the thickness of a hair. They stay on the surface and it’s almost painless. You might feel a little prick, but it’s less disturbing than a mosquito bite. Most people fall asleep or get deeply relaxed.

of the oldest treatments in history and safer than drugs or surgery. Possible bruising is the worst that could happen.

Q: How many treatments are typically needed? A: Treatment frequency is based on how long you have had a

problem. For example, a 10-year-old back injury cannot be fixed in one treatment. Every treatment is based on the person. There is no cookie cutter approach here. We start with a full health history and a parental health history and may need to refer you for blood work. Usually six to twelve visits once or twice a week will suffice.

Q: How much are treatments and are they covered by insurance? A: Most good insurance plans are covering acupuncture treat-

ments. The average is $80 per treatment, and there is a consultation fee. s

BON APPÉTIT By Janet Curran Perlman, photos by Dan Epstein




bustling, energetic and fun vibe grabs you like a smile as soon as you walk through the doors of Pudsters, West Caldwell’s newest eatery. Open since July 1st, Pudsters is already attracting flocks of locals who have heard about this family restaurant’s terrific eats, all served in an intriguing venue that mixes 21st century technology with yesteryear’s nostalgia. The brainchild of Michael Sobon and whimsically named after his English bulldog, Puddy, much of Pudsters’ interior hearkens back to an earlier, simpler era of family dining, when hamburgers, frankfurters and fries ruled. Today, explains Sobon’s partner and friend Patrick O’Brien, Pudsters elevates these simple offerings from the past by using specially blended proprietary Black Angus beef, ground by butcher Pat LaFrieda, in their remarkably moist hamburgers, searing them to seal in the juices. Sitting next to us, a woman leaned over and raved, “I’m a hamburger connoisseur, and this is a pretty darn good burger.” Single Burgers here are $4.89, doubles and the cheese-added Puddy melt, $6.19. Every month features a burger special: October’s will be the “Huggy Burger,” a BBQ burger with white cheddar, crispy bacon, quality house-made crispy frizzled onion straws and Sweet Baby Ray’s brand BBQ sauce, served on a grilled Martin’s potato roll. Frankfurters are a Polish-style mix of pork and beef, crafted for Pudsters by a small New England firm and served on a grilled New England style roll. “I was a total cynic when it came to frankfurters,” said my guest, “but these are really outstanding.” Be creative and spice up your frankfurter with a generous assortment of free toppings. Frankfurters are $2.29, “loaded” Pudsters, $3.39, Romeos with bacon and “the works,” $4.89. For the vegetarians, the $6.95 portabella mushroom burger rules. Fries and onion rings are welcome sides, particularly the delicious $4.69 white truffle parmesan fries.



October 2013

Pudsters pays homage to the past with a meticulously rendered chalk drawing of a vintage Coca Cola advertisement, depicting an old-fashioned Main Street America scene. But after all, this is a place where the past enthusiastically meets the future—witness the nearby Coca Cola Freestyle machine that offers 150 “design your own” drinks. And next to a traditional Crosley’s 50’s jukebox is the Rockbot®, a social music platform that serves as a virtual jukebox, controlled by customers through a Smart phone app that allows browsing and requesting songs from the catalog and voting “thumbs up” or thumbs down” on the music queue while waiting for their choice to play. Stop at the cozy yogurt station for a dazzling assortment of flavors, and take some time at the iPad® counter to check your mail or play some games. Service at Pudsters is terrific. Order your entire meal at the front counter, and it appears quickly at your table, courtesy of a super friendly waitstaff, all nattily attired in Pudsters’ signature newsboy caps and hand-tied bowties, available on Pudsters’ website, along with other Pudsters’ clothing items. “I wanted to create something that is a reflection of me,” says Sobon of Pudsters. “I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to make a dream come true—and to make my parents proud!” 
