It can be quite daunting, not to mention frustrating, trying 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?”

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 STI’s, 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, 587.2400.

Capital District YMCA
Unexpected Benefits of Exercise It’s important to take the long view when implementing your exercise program. The benefits of working out go far beyond physical appearance and weight loss. Here are 3 unexpected benefits of exercise: 1. Better Sleep — Those who exercise regularly fall asleep faster, sleep longer, and enjoy a better quality of sleep. 2. More Confidence — Physical exercise can boost self-esteem and improve self-image. 3. Sharpen Memory — The less active you are, the more likely you are to experience memory loss at an early age. Having an active lifestyle may even delay dementia. To learn more, visit www.CDYMCA.org today. Nancy Gildersleeve, Director of Healthy Living, Capital District YMCA.
The Pilates Principle

es, your brain is attached to your body, but the “nitro” switch is your awareness. Our brains take the path of least resistance (aka cheats), so to move with greater ease or improve your performance at a sport, we can help you to optimize that brain–body connection. Dysfunctional muscles are generally not diseased, aging, or broken; they are starved of motion. Helping your body move in the areas that need it the most is our specialty. Pilates and Gyrotonic® exercise are movement systems that will improve your posture, help you to get up off the floor and, after a handful of lessons, get you connected and powerful on that golf swing. It’s not like anything you’ve ever done before.
