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.

Renovating the SMAllER HOME


man’s home is his castle, so the saying goes. But if your home is more cottage than castle, can you still renovate it in grand style? The answer, says William E.S. Kaufman, AIA, of WESKetch Architecture in Millington, is “yes, absolutely.” Even in this post-recession economy, he says, there is still a desire for additional space. The two most common projects his firm is hired for are a master suite with a luxurious bathroom and plenty of closet space, and a complete kitchen renovation. Clients also frequently come to WESKetch looking to add space to their mud- or laundry rooms. According to Kaufman, the actual renovation or remodeling process is the same, regardless of house size. The first step is meeting with the client at his or her home to discuss the project and see how it would work best on the property. The architect then literally goes back to the drawing board to develop the client’s concept and come up with a cost estimate. After the client and the architect reach an agreement, the designbuild architect then begins the process of obtaining town permits and, if necessary, variances. Once this is accomplished (it may take weeks or even months), the actual construction can begin. Kaufman notes that for owners of smaller homes, “Up is cheaper and more efficient than out.” Adding a story as opposed to additional ground-level space eliminates foundation, drainage and zoning issues. He also recommends consolidating the project as much as possible: “If you spread out the work across a large area of the home, it will become more disruptive as well as more expensive.” Another way to minimize the disruption is to hire as few separate companies as possible. WESKetch, for example is what Kaufman calls a “complete turnkey organization,” meaning that it handles both the archi-

tecture and the construction phases of a project. At a minimum, homeowners should seek out reputable full-service construction firms. For any homeowner, but particularly the owner of a smaller home, the most important thing to keep in mind when planning a renovation or remodeling is the difference between the construction budget and the overall project budget. Kaufman explains, “The construction budget is just that: the concrete, sheetrocking, etc., as well as the labor costs. The project budget is all of that plus the costs of obtaining permits, finding alternate housing if necessary, possible legal fees, and more. Clients need to factor this into their calculations.” Clients also need to beware of what Kaufman calls “scope creep.” This common phenomenon is the gradual, unintended expansion of a project that always begins with the phrase “While we’re at it…” By following these tips, owners of any size home can enjoy a successful renovation. s WESKetch Architecture, LLC 1932 Long Hill Road, Millington • 908-647-8200

t’s not common to see someone leave Wall Street to pursue a passion for trees. But Justin Shaw and his company, Trees Unlimited, are anything but common. Shaw traces his love for trees back to when he was a teenager doing tree work as a summer job. He went to college, studied finance, and embarked on a career in the financial sector, but his fascination with trees brought him back to his first love, and in 2005 Shaw founded Trees Unlimited in Wayne. Trees Unlimited is a full-service company that provides tree and shrub pruning; tree, shrub and stump removal; cabling and bracing; tree protection during construction, and emergency services for both residential and commercial customers. While money doesn’t grow on tress, Shaw believes that with proper care and pruning, trees can bear leaves for a long time and add beauty and functionality to



October 2013

almost any environment. “Trees are amazing. They are such efficient organisms, the longest living organism on earth, and they do it in the same exact spot,” says Shaw. “They are efficient in healing themselves, adapting themselves to the environment, and they are so simple and yet complex.” Having trees can also provide aesthetic beauty to a residence or business. “They provide monetary value to the property—in fact, planting trees can improve the property’s value by up to 20 percent, depending on the location,” says Shaw. In addition, trees add functionality. For example, in the summertime, Shaw says a deciduous tree can reduce cooling bills by shading property from the sun. And in the winter, these trees lose their leaves, which allows the sun’s heat to warm the property. “A properly planted and maintained tree can also break the wind so it’s not so intrusive,” says Shaw, who adds that trees also reduce sounds from roads and neighbors, and they add privacy to a property. However, sometimes the company receives requests to remove tress. Shaw says tree removal should always be a last resort, but the client must make the final decision. “The healthiest tree can come down during a storm, while unhealthy trees have withstood

inclement weather. So clients must weigh the pros and cons, and we will do whatever makes them feel comfortable,” says Shaw. He asks clients to consider if the tree has a target. For example, if the tree falls, will it land on a child’s bedroom, a playground, or a parking lot, as opposed to landing on the ground? That’s a critical factor in determining whether a tree in questionable health should be removed. Shaw also notes that trees must be properly protected during residential or commercial construction work, such as adding a new patio or building a new road. He says that construction work is one of the most common causes of tree death in urban and suburban forests. Trees Unlimited works with builders through each phase of construction to avoid cutting and smothering tree roots, damaging the tree trunks, or compacting the soil. Homeowners should routinely monitor their trees, says Shaw, and if they notice a change or they’re concerned, they should call a professional tree care service. However, he adds a world of caution, “If the company says the tree is dying, have them tell you why it is dying. Often, a tree only needs some maintenance, so don’t let someone tell you it is dying if the tree only needs some TLC.” Words of wisdom from a man with a passion for trees.  Trees Unlimited 1341 Hamburg Turnpike, Suite 2-4A, Wayne 973-628-8733

“ 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!

HealtH & Beauty By Julie Jacobs

GettinG at the heart of GERD So 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!).


astroesophageal 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 over-the-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; H-2-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 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

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

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. He’s the best-selling author of 12 books translated into 25 foreign languages with over one million copies sold. His next book, Success Secrets of Sales Superstars will be released April 2013 by Entrepreneur Press. You can see him on QVC selling out unique and innovative inventions. He’s a featured guest on CNN, Fox, CNBC and hosted over 400 Radio and Television shows in New York City, Washington and on the Comcast Television Network.

Appetites, Ingredients Change with the Seasons

(Family Features)


ust as our wardrobe adjusts to the cooler weather, so, too, do our appetites as we enjoy warm, comforting dishes to stave off the chill in the air. Butternut Squash & Linguine is one of those perfect transition dishes that showcase the best of the season’s offerings. Winter squash of all descriptions are showing up at farmers markets and in grocery store produce aisles now. Butternut squash is one of the most readily recognizable choices, with its distinctive

pear shape. Inside is a flavorful, nutrient-rich, yellow-orange flesh that has a subtle sweetness when cooked. To prepare this recipe, pieces of the squash are simmered with wine and garlic until tender, then a sprinkling of sage is stirred in. A quick toss with linguine and crumbled goat cheese or blue cheese results in a mouthwatering mélange of flavors. For an extra special finish sprinkle with crisp-cooked prosciutto and chopped walnuts. Either way, it makes a delicious main dish, or a side for poultry or pork. Just as you shop for the best produce, think about the pasta you purchase, too. Dreamfields pasta is made with durum wheat semolina just like traditional pasta but with 5 grams of fiber (about the same as whole wheat pasta) and 7 grams of protein per serving. It also produces a lower blood sugar response when compared with traditional pasta, making it a healthful choice for the entire family. To learn more about Dreamfields and for additional recipes visit s

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to pan; cover and keep warm. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in squash, wine and salt. Simmer 12 to 15 minutes just until squash is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in sage. Toss squash with pasta and cheese. Sprinkle with prosciutto, additional cheese and walnuts, if desired.
