​There’s no better time than spring to refresh and renew! Spring is not just a time for nature to refresh and renew. It’s also the perfect time for people to refresh your body, mind, and spirit.


Nourish yourself inside and out

“Spring is a great time to rejuvenate your body, mind and soul,” says Kevin Schneider of Mother Earth’s Storehouse. “At Mother Earth’s Storehouse you will find a variety of natural and organic cosmetics, lotions, shampoos, and Mother Earth’s own line of vitamins and supplements to help keep your body looking and feeling great.

Get spring-inspired and make this season something healthy and delicious!”


Rejuvenate and refresh

What’s inside matters most, but it’s the outside that allures, engages, and presents the “inside you” to the world. So, it’s natural to want to look your best, within reason. So says Mario Loomis,MD of Loomis Plastic Surgery. “With our plastic surgery expertise, we provide safe and effective nonsurgical treatments for facial aging, double chins, and unwanted body fat, avoiding the risk and cost of surgery. Come see what we can do. The consultation is free!”

Laser Vision Correction, commonly known as LASIK & PRK, is offered by the surgeons at Hudson Valley Eye Surgeons, who have been performing the procedure for over 20 years. The highly sophisticated procedure has revolutionized the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses. Patients with an active lifestyle often prefer the freedom that LASIK and PRK offer. Studies have shown that over a 20-year period, laser vision correction is easily affordable when compared to the cost of glasses and contact lenses.


Give yourself a virtual hug

“Obesity can have a negative impact on a person’s physical, emotional, social, and school functioning level also known as Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQL),” says Ramon Rivera, MD, FACS, of Tri State Bariatrics. “There are important steps that you can take to improve your HRQL and overall health. First, know your numbers including weight, BMI, HgbA1c, Waist to Hip ratio, resting energy expenditure, and physical activity level. Second, understand how these numbers may affect your health based on your excess weight or obesity level. Third, seek medical advice regarding your risk of obesity related illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, sleep apnea, and others. Our team of bariatric specialists, including a registered dietitian, behavioral, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, psychologist, and surgeons can help you understand these numbers and develop a plan towards improving your weight and overall health.”


Shape up for spring

Susan Epstein MS, RD, CDN, of The Surgical Weight Loss Institute at Good Samaritan Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Network (WMCHealth), shares her suggestions for emerging from winter hibernation: “Instead of curling up on the couch in a cozy sweatshirt with rich comfort foods, try these tips. 1) Move while you work — if you’re on the phone, stand up, pace around the room, or walk up a few flights of stairs. 2) On the hour, take a short five-minute walk or stand up and stretch. 3) Try tightening your abdominal muscles at regular intervals. 4) Walk, do jumping jacks, or use your exercise equipment while watching TV. 5) Take up a fun activity, like tennis. Overall, using technology tools like health-oriented apps, choosing healthy foods, and being more active are great ways to spring into a healthier lifestyle.”
