The Benefits of Having a Workout Partner Current studies show that having a training partner keeps you accountable and on track with your fitness goals. Before selecting your workout buddy, it’s important to identify someone with comparable fitness goals and common interests who has similar availability within their schedule for exercise. Having a reliable partner can be a strong motivator, offer invaluable support and provide a healthy level of competition. They can act as your coach, helping you run one more mile, push through a plateau, or sign up for an event you may not have done by yourself. Learn more about the Y at www.CDYMCA.org.

Advanced Audiology Services
27 Lower Hudson Avenue, Green Island
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?”

Statistics show that 1 out of every 75 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime. With vague symptoms, no reliable screening tests, and high mortality rate, it is one of the most dreaded cancers women experience. News of lawsuits surrounding talcum powder use in increasing ovarian cancer risk only heightens our fears. Here are some facts you need to keep in mind: • Research on talc powder has unclear conclusions. Not all studies show a link, but as long as the controversy continues, limiting powder use may be best • Risk factors: Age over 40 years; BMI over 30; no full-term pregnancies before age 35; use of fertility drugs for more than 6 cycles. • Protective factors: Birth control pill use for 5 years, having a tubal ligation.

Steven Yarinsky, MD, FACS, Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, PC
7 Wells Street, 3rd Floor, Saratoga Springs
Introducing a New Procedure: ThermiVA, Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation Reclaim your vaginal health. Restore your satisfaction. Revive your relationship. We are excited to introduce THERMIVa®, an impressive non-invasive new therapy to treat various feminine intimate problems, specifically as they relate to functional and aesthetic vaginal concerns. THERMIva treats the discomfort and dissatisfaction that results from normal aging, loss of collagen, and dryness, both externally and internally. The procedure creates softer, thicker and more lubricated vaginal mucosa and allows for nerve growth to enhance vaginal sensation by delivering a controlled thermal energy to the desired areas–external (labia) and or internal (vaginal). This is an option for women experiencing painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness. Additionally, the external labial tissues tighten, leading to a more youthful appearance; many have reported more pleasurable intimacy. Mild urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse may also be treated. It’s quick, easy, and safe, requiring no anesthesia or downtime. Patients often see results after one treatment. Call our office weekdays at 583.4019 for a consultation with Dr. Yarinsky and his staff.
Oliva! Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany;
27 Housatonic Street, Lenox, MA
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is the basis of the Mediterranean diet, often recommended for women’s health issues. EVOO is high in monounsaturated fats and contains vitamins E and K. True EVOO is loaded with antioxidants and contains powerful health benefits, including its ability to reduce heart disease, fight cancer, fight infectious disease, and manage diabetes. With olive oil, fresh is everything. If it’s not fresh, the health benefits are greatly reduced and the taste is almost non-existent. At Oliva!, we rotate our oils according to harvest season, ensuring that you get the freshest EVOO available. Located in Stuyvesant Plaza and Lenox, MA, we offer over 50 selections of EVOOs and balsamic vinegars. Stop in and let our staff help you select the perfect combination for your needs.
