Advanced Audiology Services
27 Lower Hudson Avenue, Green Island
It can be quite daunting, not to mention frustrating, to try to make a decision about which hearing aid to buy. This is where the services of the audiologist can be instrumental in achieving a successful outcome. The audiologist’s role in selection is to guide and advise the consumer regarding options such as style and level of technology. One should wind up with “the best hearing aid for me.” Carrying many brands does not necessarily translate into an advantage to the consumer. More useful information might be the answer to “What kinds of results do you typically get from the hearing aids that you dispense? Are your patients usually satisfied with the outcome?”

If you’re a woman diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness, you have specialists to watch over your platelets, lymph nodes, and CT scans. It is unlikely that you have anyone to answer questions about the impact of your illness on you as a woman. Who will address questions like:
• Will a blood thinner give me terrible periods?
• Can the medications I need cause birth defects?
• Will I be able to enjoy and give sexual pleasure?
• Can hot flashes be controlled without hormones?
My colleagues Mary Beth D’Aloia and Jennifer Iovinelli and I are experienced OB-GYN clinicians and breast cancer survivors. During and after treatment, let us help you move ahead with a full life as a woman.

LARC–It’s a thing. By Bernice Moeller-Bloom, NP You know things are becoming mainstream when they get their own acronym. So, today’s acronym is LARC (Long-Acting Reversible Contraception).This means birth control providing women with highly effective means to prevent pregnancy, while preserving the option for having babies later. These options are now recommended as first-line contraception for women from their teen years to peri-menopause. While it does not protect against STIs, LARC reduces unintended pregnancy and abortion. And they are cost-effective! Each has unique risks and benefits, so you should discuss the options with your health care provider at your next GYN appointment. Bernice Moeller-Bloom, NP, is accepting new patients at Myrtle Street Obstetrics & Gynecology, 518.587.2400.

Simple steps to help manage stress during the holidays Many people feel the crunch of added stress around the holiday season. Finding ways to manage that stress can do wonders for your long-term health. Try some of these tips to help you manage your stress:
1. Sweat it out: Working out will help to release endorphins (the happy hormones), which help to mitigate the negative feelings associated with stress.
2. Get a massage: During a massage, your nervous system begins to relax and turns off the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for your “fight-or-flight” response and stress hormones like cortisol.
3. Eat your fruits and veggies: Certain studies suggest that people who consume more servings of fruits and vegetables experience higher levels of happiness than those who skip them.
