DRNGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyAfter recovering from breast cancer, women typically want to “live life to the fullest,” celebrating their triumph over the disease and the joy of feeling healthy again.

Pleasurable sexual activity is a vital part in the process. However, many women report having less sex after treatment than before their illness.

MonaLisa Touch, a recently introduced outpatient vaginal laser treatment, is designed to relieve sexual discomfort due to vaginal dryness after menopause or cancer surgery.

My clinic, DrNGYN in Lake Oswego, is one of a few clinics offering this treatment in the Portland area.

Lubricants and hormonal cream are the standard treatments for vaginal dryness and pain after menopause. Those who choose not to use hormones, including cancer patients and survivors of cancer, need an alternative.

Lovemaking after breast cancer can feel like sandpaper or broken glass — or be impossible. It is supposed to be pleasurable for everyone involved.

MonaLisa Touch is an office-based, noninvasive treatment in which a CO2 laser probe is placed in the vagina to administer 360-degree micro-injuries (“micro-puffs”) that act on the mucosa-stimulating biosynthesis of new collagen growth and tissue regeneration.

The procedure takes 5 minutes and women feel no pain. Three treatments, six weeks apart, cost $2,400 and are not covered by insurance. Over 95 percent of patients are satisfied and there is no risk. The process is FDA-approved.

Breast cancer survivors have enough challenges. Helping ease the way of "sexuality after breast cancer" is something we do here. We will meet you where you are.

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishQ. I’m thinking of buying into a community with a Homeowners Association (HOA).

What are CC&R’s and what are some examples of rules that HOA members must adhere to?

A. CC&R stands for Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. These are written and recorded policies and codes that govern the neighborhood. Examples include restrictions on house colors, roofing material types or even how many cars can be parked on the street. Other rules may prohibit changing your landscaping or leaving your garage door open for an extended period of time.

Q. What do monthly HOA fees typically pay for?

A. Monthly dues go toward maintenance of common areas such as landscaping; exterior building maintenance like window washing or painting; and interior maintenance for features such as elevators. Many HOA’s cover some utilities like water, garbage and natural gas.

Q. How can I tell whether an HOA budget is well-funded and can handle future repairs?

A. When buying into an HOA community, it is your broker’s job to obtain the last 6-12 months of the HOA minutes, financials and CC&R’s. Carefully review these to ensure the HOA is healthy, has reserve funds for repairs and unforeseen contingencies so you are not caught in an assessment!

Q. How can I find out whether HOA fees will go up in the near future?

A. You may call the HOA president. The details are typically spelled out in the monthly meeting minutes, as this would be part of ongoing discussion and plan that the officers would discuss and record.

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Charles Branen, DMDBelieve it or not, babies are born with all of their teeth. 

The primary “baby teeth” are hidden in the gums and don’t peek through until about 6 months of age.  Even before that first tooth emerges, it is important to remember that from healthy gums come healthy teeth. 

Running a washcloth over baby’s gums after eating helps keep harmful bacteria away. Always take the bottle away after baby is done drinking and don’t put baby to bed with a bottle.

The ADA recommends a baby’s first visit occur at one year, but another common rule of thumb is about six months after the first tooth has emerged. 

The first visit is usually a quick “get to know us” visit, a ride in the chair, a peek in the mouth to do a visual check, instructions for parent and child about good homecare and what to expect, and a cursory cleaning, if the child is happy and allows it.  This is all about forming a good relationship and trust.

For homecare, brush the teeth two times per day with a soft child’s brush with water up until two years of age.

When the child is able to spit, toothpaste can be introduced, but no more than the size of a small pea. 

Chat with us first about using fluoride toothpaste or supplements.  By three years, your child should visit the dentist every six months for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerNo one wants to find out their brakes are gone the hard way — by losing their brakes and colliding into a tree.

First things first:

· You need to have your brakes seriously looked at once per year.

· Your brake fluid should be changed every two to three years.

So, what are the signs that your vehicle’s brakes are veering toward failure?

Don't ignore your antilock brake system (ABS) light when it pops up on your dashboard. It could mean there's a wiring or electrical problem.

Listen to your brakes. Squealing or grinding noises are signs that your brake pads are wearing thin.

Brake pulsation when coming to a sudden stop or after applying the brakes for a long time isn’t a good sign. That typically means the rotors are warped, which can be corrected by putting them on a lathe and machining them smooth.

Be wary of excess drag while you accelerate. Rust may have built up on your emergency brakes, which leaves them "on" even when the lever's down.

When your car pulls from to the side, you have frozen brakes, brakes that are out of alignment, or fluid leaking on the brake pads or shoes.

Stopping distance — When your car takes longer to stop than you're used to, you may need a brake adjustment, new brake linings, or a replacement power booster.

If your brake pedal seems soft or spongy, there may be excess air in the brakes. Your mechanic can release the air through "brake bleeding."

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallOf course there's seasonality in home sales. But let's ask exactly WHAT it is that's seasonal? 

Ease of showing homes may be the biggest seasonal difference. Days are longer, shorter, wetter or drier. Holidays and school cycles happen.  Total unit volumes peak in summer while days are long and school is out.  No surprise.

 

Having a Realtor® with a great handle on specific numbers (like volumes, inventory, or average days on market) for your market segment can drive a great deal or just a mediocre one.  But focusing on this alone can trap you into thinking your OPPORTUNITY is seasonal.  It's NOT. 

 

Stats and averages don't speak to individual motivations. In a way, the numbers don't matter. Instead, individual buyers and sellers, and their particular motivations are what matter most. Buyers and sellers continue to come and go in the market all year long. 

And it's worth noting that someone buying or selling in December is often highly motivated, more ready to sell or buy than fair weather folks touring in July for sport. While total inventory, active buyers, and number of sales will surely decline in the fall, it's no matter if you find the ONE person for your home, or the one perfect house to make home.

 

In the “off” season, when both inventory and buyers wane, call it a wash.  Motivations and opportunity are up!  The bottom line is, sell or buy when YOU are ready.

PETROFF CENTER PLASTIC SURGERY & MEDI-SPA - Dr. Mark PetroffPlastic surgery for men is on the upswing, accounting for 8 percent of all cosmetic procedures performed in 2014, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

A total of 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men that year. More than 205,000 were surgical and more than 1 million were minimally invasive. Each year, the percentage of men seeking cosmetic procedures rises about 1 percent.

The number of cosmetic procedures for men jumped more than 106 percent between 1997 and 2012, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Why? Why not!

Sure, there are patients who want to look like a male model. But many men simply want to make themselves look younger and more attractive to boost their confidence. That may help further their careers, enhance their love lives, or serve as a “daddy do-over” much as “mommy makeovers” have for people in their 40s.

The top five male cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures are:

· Botulinum toxin Type A (411,000)

· Laser hair removal (191,000)

· Microdermabrasion (157,000)

· Chemical peel (99,000)

· Soft tissue fillers (93,000)

The top five cosmetic surgeries performed on men are:

· Nose reshaping/rhinoplasty (55,000)

· Eyelid surgery (29,000)

· Male breast reduction (26,000)

· Liposuction (24,000)

· Facelift/necklift (12,000)

Men are also getting surgical chin augmentation and non-surgical Ultherapy.

EVCOT - Jonathan Wisniewski, DVMDoes your dog go camping or fishing with you?

Make sure that your pet doesn’t get ahold of certain types of fish, which can cause a potentially fatal condition call “Salmon Poisoning Disease” or “Fish Disease.”

The disease is most prevalent in the Pacific Northwest, from Northern California to Puget Sound. It’s also see on inland rivers where fish migrate. Salmon and trout are the most commonly infected fish, but there are many other freshwater species affected. The fish must be eaten raw to develop clinical signs.

The disease is caused by a parasitic infection (a liver fluke) that takes 6-10 days to develop clinical signs. Cooking the fish kills the parasite.

Typical signs include fever, depression, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea (often bloody in character), fever, weight loss and lymph node enlargement

Diagnosis is make through clinical signs and appropriate history and checking the animals stool for parasite eggs Treatment consists of specific antibiotics (doxycycline), IV fluids, nausea medications, and supportive care.

Without treatment, 90 percent of animals will die within two weeks.

Prevention included close monitoring of dogs when they are out with you at rivers, beaches and lakes. Keep them from eating fish entrails, keep your pet on a leash in high-risk areas, and cook all fish prior to feeding any to pets.

If your pet gets into raw fish, you can start treatment before clinical signs develop, or induce vomiting to prevent a potentially lengthy hospital stay.

Brought to you by Stephen Andrews of Bank of Oswego - Banking INSIDER -


BANK OF OSWEGO - Stephen AndrewsIt should be no surprise that when it comes to personal financial habits, parents hold the most sway over their children’s attitudes and behaviors about money. The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) and the nation’s more than 6,500 community banks offer the following tips for parents with elementary-aged children. 

Look for ways to turn everyday experiences into teachable moments. A routine trip to the grocery store could turn into a discussion about the importance of budgeting and how to identify wants vs. needs.

Once children start to earn money by mowing lawns, dog-walking or babysitting, it’s important that they understand their pay is a limited commodity. If your child spends all of his or her money and asks to borrow more from you, don’t give in and spoil a valuable lesson.

When teaching children about money, it’s suggested that parents institute a tiered system that allocates money for spending, long-term goals and charity. By automatically taking 10 or 15 percent off the top of their earnings and designating it for savings, children can develop the habit of paying themselves first at a young age.

Be a good role model! Let your children see you set a savings goal and delay gratification until you have reached that goal.

Don’t go it alone. Community banks are excellent resources when it comes to teaching children about financial literacy. Take your kids to the local community bank to watch your transactions and learn more about managing their own accounts.

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallWhich comes first — selling your home or buying another? It’s a quandary, unless carrying two homes is no trouble for you. 

Buying first might require you to write an offer “contingent” on your sale … not ideal in a seller’s market.  Selling first makes your purchase “non-contingent” and stronger, but could leave you without a home temporarily. 

 

Among the many options to explore with your agent:

· Make your sale contingent upon finding your replacement property. Buyers make all kinds of concessions today, and if they love your home, they may find this perfectly acceptable. 

· Negotiate a long closing on your sale, and/or a “rent-back” to delay your departure.  Again, buyers might be glad to flex on timing.

· As a buyer, bridge loans used to help, but they’re mostly extinct today. Similarly, a line of credit on your home might be a perfect way to get temporary funds. 

· Consult your CPA or financial adviser about tapping other assets temporarily as bridge funds, “paying yourself back” once your home sells. 

· Make your purchase offer contingent. It’s not futile!  An otherwise strong offer and some creativity by your agent may be good enough to make a seller say yes! 

Simply be OK with moving twice. It’s not the end of the world. It’s simpler in a way. Neither the sell nor the buy is complicated. You can negotiate a little more firmly on both and come out ahead financially. 

Make it an adventure.  There are worse things in life.

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerGetting ready for a road trip this summer? Make sure your vehicle is as ready to go as you are.

According to the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, the following should be professionally checked before you hit the road:

Tires – Rotate about every 6,000 to 7,000 miles and get tire pressure checked. Examine tires for tread life, uneven wearing, and cupping; check the sidewalls for cuts and nicks. An alignment is warranted if there's uneven tread wear or if your vehicle pulls to one side. Check the spare and be sure the jack is in good condition.

Brakes should be inspected as recommended in your manual, or sooner if you notice pulsations, grabbing, noises, or longer stopping distance.

Air Conditioning — A marginally operating system will fail in hot weather. Have the system examined by a qualified technician. Newer models have cabin air filters that clean the air entering the heating and air conditioning system.

Cooling System — The greatest cause of summer breakdowns is overheating. The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps, and hoses should be checked by a pro.

Other things that should be checked are engine performance, oil, oil filter, windshield wipers, lights and the battery.

Vic’s Automotive works on both domestic and foreign makes and models. Give us a call so we can make sure you have a trouble-free, comfortable trip.

DRNGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyWomen who have trouble remembering contraception, are perimenopausal, or have irregularities with their menstrual cycle may want to consider a long-acting birth control device. They are affordable (often free) and safe.

IntraUterine Devices (IUDs) are small, T-shaped devices made of flexible plastic. Inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy, IUDs may contain copper or the hormone progestin.

IUDs are very effective and last three to 12 years. The devices must be inserted by a health care provider in the office.

There are three types of hormonal IUDs. Mirena is effective for five years. Skyla and Liletta are effective for three years. Mirena is best used for cycle control. Periods often dissipate. It’s an excellent choice to manage the irregular bleeding of menopause.

A hormonal implant is another option. Implanon and Nexplanon are two such products that are safe, convenient and effective. They are matchstick-sized rods inserted into the arm by a healthcare provider. The main side effect is irregular bleeding in up to 20 percent of patients. These are very popular with patients who have trouble remembering daily pills, or those who have trouble getting to a pharmacy.

Long-acting birth control devices can be used in all ages and are usually a covered benefit under affordable care.

At Dr NGYN, we offer all of these devices. We check with your insurance provider for benefits; they are often placed at no cost to you.

Please call for information or consultation. It is our pleasure to care for you!

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Charles Branen, DMDIt’s no secret that we only have one chance to make a great first impression.

Research done by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has shown that your smile is one of the first features noticed when meeting someone new, and that you are more likely to be perceived as intelligent, interesting and successful with a bright, healthy smile.

Given the importance of a perfect smile, most people surveyed would be willing to spend money safeguarding their teeth as they age. The good news is, it doesn’t have to cost a lot to make changes that will enhance your natural smile.

Regular dental cleanings help keep away stains and the biofilm that leads to plaque build-up and dental decay.

Whitening products are widely available now. The products that dental offices provide are usually safer and more effective than over-the-counter products because they contain stronger ingredients, yet are less acidic.

We offer multiple choices for whitening, but two popular techniques stand out. The first is at-home custom trays that the patient loads with a whitening solution and wears for a short duration over a couple weeks or until satisfactory results are achieved. The cost is under $100 and the trays are reusable.

The other method is an in-office bleaching that takes about 90 minutes and can leave teeth multiple shades lighter. The cost is under $400 and also includes a set of trays for touch-ups.

Call our office today for a free consultation.
