Founder and President
Corporate Performance Consultants
Ellen Cooperperson came to Long Island from Brooklyn in
1973 as a single mom with a six-year-old son, to manage the
Long Island Coffee Division of Hershey Foods. The first thing
she noticed about living on Long Island was the quiet surrounding her new home, and she was quick to appreciate the
freedom that came with being able to open the front door and
let her son go out to play, as well as having the beach close by.
At Hershey, she was the only woman among 105 male managers. Imagine going for corporate training in New Orleans during Mardi Gras with 104 men? “Women were treated differently in the workplace,” Ellen recalls. While she was handed a book
of manuals to read for orientation, men were ushered into the
“old boys’ network.” She quickly realized how important it was
for women to receive mentorship in the workplace. By 1976, she
had produced the landmark documentary film Women Now.
She also created the film Yes Baby, She’s My Sir, which
addressed the ways in which language contributed to gender
bias. Working with SUNY Farmingdale, she obtained a grant to
encourage and assist women in entering non-traditional jobs,
and spent 10 years guiding women in the workplace.
Since 1986, Ellen has led Corporate Performance Consultants,
which helps improve a company’s performance by providing
leadership development, executive coaching, management
training, business strategy, and team building.
Ellen was recently honored as a Cause Champion by The Long
Island Way, and supports organizations including Best Buddies,
New York and Autism Speaks, among others.
Ellen lives by the mantra “without integrity, nothing works”
and makes sure that every one of her clients understands the
importance of this crucial business principle.

Rebecca Skloot will

The Immortal Life of
Henrietta Lacks on
Saturday, February 6 at
2p.m. Henrietta Lacks
was a 31-year-old
mother of five in
Baltimore when she
died of cervical cancer in 1951. Without her
knowledge, doctors at Johns Hopkins took tissue samples, which became known as the
HeLa line. These cells aided in the discovery
of the polio vaccine, AIDs treatments and
chemotherapy. During her research, Skloot
found that the Lacks’ family tree included
blacks and whites and, although the HeLa
cells were a boon to medicine, they also produced a legacy of pain, injustice and misery.
Ms. Skloot is a contributing editor to Popular
Science Magazine and her writing appears in
many publications, including The New York
Times Magazine, Oprah Magazine, Discover,
and Prevention. Skloot’s father Floyd grew up
in Long Beach and authored 15 books, while

Eat to Beat Heart Disease
Food Fixes That Can Keep You Healthy
Whether you’re curled up with a book or pushing a stroller uphill, your
heart works hard for you – a healthy one beats 100,000 times and
pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood daily. To help it do its job – and prevent heart disease – take stock of your diet.
“What you eat and how you prepare food can strongly affect your
blood cholesterol, your blood pressure and the propensity for plaque to
build up in your arteries over the long run,” says Lori Mosca, M.D., director of preventive cardiology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia
Medical Center, in New York City.
The good news is that eating “heart healthy” doesn’t require any special regimen; it’s just a balanced plan that
follows the Dietary Guidelines for Americans
and also helps ward off cancer, diabetes and
hypertension, especially if you keep tabs on
calories. But considering that plenty of notso-good-for-you foods are just a drive-thru
away, we could all use a little inspiration and
guidance. You’re never too young to take
good care of your heart. Read on for the key
nutrition rules that will help you and your
family eat to beat heart disease.
Women who
consumed an
average of twoand-one-half
servings of whole
grains daily had at
least a 30 percent
lower risk of
cardiovascular
disease than
women who
consumed less
than one serving
daily.
Target Saturated and Trans Fats
To keep your arteries clear, cut down on
your intake of both saturated fat (the kind
that’s solid at room temperature and found
in many types of animal products) and trans
fats (processed vegetable oil in which hydrogen has been added to the molecule to make
it more solid and give it a longer shelf life).
Both types raise your body’s level of “bad”
LDL cholesterol – much more so than any
cholesterol you get from food. When too
much LDL cholesterol circulates in the bloodstream, it can slowly build up on the walls of
arteries feeding your heart and brain, form-
ing thick, hard plaque.
Trans fats also lower “good” HDL cholesterol, making them doubly
bad for your heart. HDL cholesterol is beneficial because it reduces
plaque buildup by ushering excess LDL cholesterol from artery walls and
back to the liver, where it’s passed from the body.
Food Fix: Aim to have no more than 30 percent of your calories come
from fat, with 10 percent or less from saturated and trans fat. “Limit
butter, vegetable shortening and lard in cooking,” suggests Bethany
Thayer, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.
Instead, use olive and canola oils, which both contain heart-healthy
12 • February 2010 • LONG ISLAND WOMAN
monounsaturated fat. Because these healthy fats are still high in calories
(120 calories per tablespoon), go easy to avoid weight gain, which is an
independent risk factor for heart disease.
Also, instead of butter or regular margarine, consider spreads such as
Take Control or Benecol, which are enriched with plant sterols or stanols
– compounds that can inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine, thereby lowering LDLs. (Products such as Yoplait Healthy Heart yogurt
and Minute Maid Heart Wise orange juice also contain plant sterols.)
Other ways to trim saturated fats from your diet: Drink skim or
low-fat milk rather than 2 percent or whole. (Toddlers can switch to skim
or low-fat milk starting at age 2.) “And choose lean meats and skinless
poultry, keeping servings to about the size of your palm,” suggests
Thayer. Finally, avoid processed cookies, crackers, chips and bakery products, which are often high in trans fats (also called “hydrogenated” or
“partially hydrogenated” fat or oil in the ingredient list). Check the nutrition label to find snacks that are low in both saturated and trans fat.
Eat More Whole Grains
Whole-grain bread and cereals as well as beans, barley and lentils are
good sources of vitamins A, B and E. These act as antioxidants, which
may help neutralize free radicals – unstable oxygen molecules in the
blood that may contribute to plaque buildup in the arteries. Whole
grains are also “packed with fiber, which is potent in lowering LDL,”
says Wahida Karmally, R.D., director of nutrition at the Irving Center for
Clinical Research at Columbia University in New York City.
Food Fix: Because most of us get only 15 grams of fiber per day, while
25 to 30 grams is ideal, it’s wise to choose whole grain cereal such as
instant oatmeal and opt for whole grain bread instead of white as often
as possible. Don’t worry: the other people in your home will get used to
it. Aim for at least three, one-ounce servings of whole grains per day.
The Nurses’ Health Study, which followed more than 75,000 women
over 10 years, found that those who consumed an average of two-andone-half servings of whole grains daily (from whole grain breakfast cereal to popcorn) had at least a 30 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease than women who consumed the least (less than one serving daily).
According to the study, the more whole grains you consume, the greater
your protection against heart disease is likely to be.
To spot whole grain products, look for whole on the nutrition label, as
in “whole wheat,” “whole corn” or “whole rye.” Also, check the fiber
content. Look for foods with 2 or more grams of fiber per serving.
Pack In Produce
Like whole grains, fruits and vegetables are filled with fiber as well as
beta-carotene and the antioxidant vitamins A and C. Some also contain
folate, a B vitamin that may help reduce the amino acid homocysteine,
high blood levels of which may have been linked with an increased risk

Food Fix: Can’t seem to find room in your

By themselves, isoflavones haven’t proven to be cardio protective. Even
if you or your family members aren’t big fans of soy – most soy products
have a milky, beany taste – you can trim the saturated fat and cholesterol in your diet by simply eating more vegetarian meals. “If you have
high cholesterol or a family history of heart disease, aim for one meatless meal per day,” McCoin advises.
Ease Up On Eggs
While it’s true that dietary cholesterol doesn’t affect your blood cholesterol to the extent that saturated and trans fats can, the dietary cholesterol
in egg yolks can add up (a typical yolk contains 71 percent of the daily limit
of 300 milligrams), and may contribute to high levels of LDL in your body.
That’s why many nutritionists are conservative when it comes to recommending a daily limit for egg consumption. “Don’t have more than one
egg yolk a day,” advises Melissa Ohlson,
M.S., R.D., nutrition project coordinator
for preventive cardiology at the Cleveland
Clinic in Ohio. (If you already have high
cholesterol, however, Ohlson recommends limiting eggs to no more than
three per week.) There’s no need to buy
eggs enriched with DHA and EPA, which
can cost as much as $1.50 more per
dozen than regular eggs. They contain relatively little heart-healthy DHA and EPA,
and they’re only slightly lower in cholesterol, says Ohlson.
Food Fix: If you’re an egg lover or bake
or cook with eggs, keep dietary cholesterol intake low by using just the egg whites or opting for commerciallyprepared egg substitutes whenever possible.

Develop a Taste for Dark Chocolate
It contains flavonols – antioxidants in the flavonoid family that may
increase blood flow in arteries, reduce the stickiness of blood platelets
and lower blood pressure. One study found that people who consumed
1.6 ounces of high-flavonoid dark chocolate daily for two weeks experienced an eightfold increase in the ability of their arteries to dilate,
which improves blood flow to the heart.
Food Fix: Even though it’s healthier than milk chocolate, dark chocolate is still a high-calorie treat. For occasional chocolate cravings or even
just a small hit every day, “check the label for chocolate that contains at
least 70 percent cocoa,” advises Mary B. Engler, Ph.D., a cardiovascular
researcher at the University of California in San Francisco. For instance,

Who Does Your Doctor See When He
Can’t Manage His Back or Neck Pain?
Ever wonder what your physician does
when his or her back hurts? At Great Neck
Spine Center (GNSC), Dr. Scott Surasky, one
of Long Island’s most trusted authorities for
non-surgical spine care, utilizes a comprehensive approach to treat these conditions.
Surasky, practicing in Great Neck since
1981, is well known for his participation in
North Shore University Hospital Glen Cove’s
Spine Surgery Program. Among his loyal
following of patients are many physicians,
physical therapists, and nurses.
“I was referred to Dr. Surasky by another
physician who was familiar with his high
success rate with chronic pain problems.
Within a week after my 1st visit to him the
symptoms abated permanently. My life has
improved immeasurably. I thank Dr. Surasky
every time I visit the office.”
Alan R., M.D.
Often patients suffering with serious neck
pain, back pain, sciatica and stenosis
become exhausted going from one doctor
to another in search of relief. GNSC utilizes
a comprehensive approach to get results.
Says Surasky, “We offer various options to
ensure the highest likelihood of eliminating
pain.” Treatment includes manipulation,
supportive modalities, massage therapy,
rehabilitative exercises, nutritional adjuncts
and spinal decompression, an advanced,
non-surgical, FDA cleared technology.
Studies published in the American Journal

LONG ISLAND WOMAN • February 2010 • 19
By Joanna Pompilio
A normal day in the life of Dr. Nancy Snyderman starts at 5 in the morning, before the
sun even rises. Even though the Chief Medical Editor for NBC News is out the door by 6
A.M., she still manages to juggle three kids, a husband, teaching responsibilities at
University of Pennsylvania and, of course, hosting “Dr. Nancy” weekdays at noon, eastern
standard time, on MSNBC. Her secret? Lists.
“I am a big believer in lists. Make two columns on a piece of paper: things I love about
my life and things I hate about my life,” says the Fort Wayne, Indiana native (born in St.
Louis, Missouri). “You’ll be surprised about how much you like yourself. But the things
you don’t like, dump them. Get rid of them. If they don’t bring you value, and I mean
spiritual nourishment and value to your soul, dump them.”
Dr. Snyderman joined NBC News (the job she heads to before most of us even contemplate rolling out of bed) in September 2006. But that was not the doctor’s first foray
into television news. She is a 17-year veteran health correspondent for news outlets on
ABC network, including 20/20, Primetime and Good Morning America. Her assignments
brought her around the globe covering the challenges of women and their health.
“Nancy has always been an outspoken advocate for women’s health with insights as a
physician, wife and mother,” according to Ami Schmitz, Dr. Snyderman’s senior medical
producer for 15 years. “She will always stand up for the truth, even if it’s not popular,
because that’s what our viewers have come to count on from her: that she will tell it to
them straight.”
Currently, her reports appear on Today, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams,
Dateline NBC, MSNBC and MSNBC.com. Before she became “Dr. Nancy,” the Indiana
University undergrad, 1977 University of Nebraska School of Medicine grad was a practicing otolaryngologist – an ear, nose and throat doctor or ENT. “I’ve always had patients.
I’ve always maintained either an active or private practice along with being a medical
correspondent. The reason it was very important to me is that I grew up to be a doctor, I
didn’t grow up to be on TV,” she quips.
Dr. Snyderman’s father was a surgical ENT. Prior to becoming a surgical ENT herself, the
author of Medical Myths That Can Kill You: And the 101 Truths That Will Save, Extend,
and Improve Your Life, considered becoming a pediatrician as her own “mini-rebellion.”
While she soon realized pediatrics was not her career path, she never wavered in her
desire to be an educator, whether in front of the camera or while wearing a physician’s
jacket.
“I found that the skill set of speaking to people bedside is the same skill set as talking
to people on television. It’s taking a complicated thing and condensing it to make it simpler without being condescending,” recalls Dr. Snyderman. “And I’ve always maintained
that I am a better correspondent if I am seeing patients and being a practicing physician.
I am a much smarter doctor because I’ve traveled the world and interviewed people and
seen things outside of my own field. So, to me, they have been phenomenally complimentary.”
It was during her residency at the University of Pittsburgh that she began to work in
broadcasting. The dual career path continued, after becoming a staff surgeon in Little
Rock, Arkansas in 1983. Ever the multi-tasker, she has always been able to weave the
two callings together. Dr. Snyderman, however, made the decision to stop seeing
patients in 2004, to focus on her other passions, including teaching in the Department
of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.
“I have come to some proverbial forks in the road where I’ve had to make decisions.
When I moved to the East Coast five years ago, I closed my private practice. So, now I
teach medical students and residents, but I’m not taking new patients because the job
I’m doing at NBC is so big. I had to think, ‘Can I do it all well?’ And I made that quiet
decision on my own to leave at the top of my game as a surgeon but to still keep my
feet in medicine,” reflects the former Vice President of Consumer Education for Johnson
& Johnson. “So that is how I’ve balanced things. But we all make decisions about what
we can have on our plate and what we can’t. For me, I can balance medicine and broadcasting as long as I limit my medicine a little bit.”
Taking off one hat to put on another is how Dr. Snyderman, like the majority of her
female audience, juggles life’s challenges and the stresses that ensue. While many people
live by their Blackberry, Dr. Snyderman still carries a paper calendar . Every year, she
takes the time to write down important birthdays and school vacation schedules, school
plays, etc., and then begins to schedule her life around all of that. “My oldest child is 23,
and I’m proud to say that I’ve never missed a kid’s birthday.”
In a profession that keeps her on the road and traveling to where the news is, Dr.
Snyderman can recall taking her three children, Kate, Rachel and Charlie, on work trips,
to the hospital while she was seeing patients, and even to the studio. Realizing this may
not be an option for every woman, she believes allowing her children to witness her at
work, has helped her teach them. “I think it’s OK for kids to see that you work hard and
struggle and make hard choices, not always the popular choice. But they have to think
that at least you’re trying. Overall, I’ve been blessed with having clarity of what is important and what’s not. Everyone has known that I’ve done the best that I possibly can.”
Still, the question for millions of women over 40 remains, “How can I do it all?” when
“help” feels like another four-letter word. Disproportionate caregiving responsibilities are
among the risk factors that can spark disorders such as depression and anxiety in
women, according to the World Health Organization.
Dr. Snyderman reported on this in “A Woman’s Nation: Are Women Making Themselves
Sick?,” a series which aired on NBC News in October 2009 in conjunction with the findings from a study conducted in partnership with The Center for American Progress, The
Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Changes Everything. Schmitz explains that Maria
Shriver’s group put together a dialogue-starter in the truest sense. “They assembled the
data on a wide variety of topics and presented NBC News with the opportunity to tell
the story of America’s women – what was working and what was not. In the case of
caregiving, many of us find ourselves sandwiched between generations: caring for our
young as well as our aging parents and relatives, often while working a full-time job.
And it’s exacting a terrible toll on our health and well-being,” she adds.
Exhaustion, depression, high blood pressure, dehydration and heart disease – these are
all illnesses stemming from stress, which negatively affects every organ system in the
body. Many of these illnesses are common in caregivers, who tend to be women over the
age of 40 that habitually put their own health needs last. Stress, Dr. Snyderman feels,
has become the silent killer of women. “We know that women are under more stress
than ever. Stress leads to higher blood pressure, stress hormones and obesity. We reach
for fat and carbs when we are stressed. Stress leads to depression. Stress is not only psychologically damaging when it’s unrelenting but it is physically damaging,” according to
Dr. Snyderman. “Women are nurturers, but we put ourselves on the back burner since we
are biologically wired to nurture.”
The solution is that women acting as caregivers need to put their own health needs
first and manage their health as thoroughly as they manage their careers and families.
Her article “Taking Care of the Caregiver,” posted on BeWell.com, discusses the higher
death rate in women once becoming the primary caregiver for her spouse. The increased
health risks are due to basic overextension. The physicality of helping an ailing family
member with their daily hygiene, transportation and monitoring new dietary needs,
which are difficult even for a trained professional, can prove overwhelming. These factors are compounded by the emotional hardship of seeing a loved one in need.
Women, she advises, should set aside a particular time each year, to start scheduling

and families.”

doctor visits and specific annual procedures. By maintaining an annual schedule,
there is less likelihood of pivotal tests and checkups falling by the wayside. “My
birthday is March 26, so I look at the month of March as my gift to myself. I know
about this time of year to start booking things – my colonoscopy, my mammogram,” Dr. Snyderman suggests. “I tell women to pick a significant day and that is
what you strive for because when you say ‘Oh, I’ll get it in the spring,’ then it’s the
summer and before you know it it’s the fall.”
Caregivers are nearly twice as likely as non-caregivers to report a chronic condition, and they are also less likely to seek out medical attention. Such a factor makes
annual tests and doctor visits, all the more crucial for this group of high risk individuals. Because caregivers become so consumed with the care of the patient/loved
one, they do not see, or ignore, the warning signs of their own declining health.
“Women almost like permission to say we matter. If you put yourself first, it’s not
selfish, it’s self-preservation,” Dr. Snyderman emphasizes. “A lot of people depend on
us, so the best thing we can do is take care of ourselves. Do not assume you can
abuse yourself and that it is going to be someone else’s problem later in life. For all
of us who like control of our lives, taking care of yourself is the best thing you can
possibly do.”
Dr. Snyderman believes that her cravings for a balanced diet and healthy foods
help her maintain her schedule. “We have sit-down family dinners on the nights
that I’m not on the nightly news. It’s been the only sort of rule in our family for
years. We eat simply;. I’m a good cook, not a fancy cook.”
As for physical activity, when she is not horseback riding, the doctor tries to walk
or hike for exercise. Dr. Snyderman truly credits her equestrian hobby with helping
keep life in perspective. “I usually try to get out three or four times a week,” says
the longtime riding enthusiast. “The horse is good for me physically, and the great
thing about riding is that you can’t think about the outside world. You really have
an hour where you have to purge your brain of all the other junk that infiltrates it.”
For many women over 40, another stressor is the aging process and its physical as
well as mental toll – which leads many women to consider plastic surgery. In the
nearly 11.7 million surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the
United States in 2007, as reported by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic
Surgery (ASAPS), women accounted for 91 percent of that total. Plastic surgery is a
subject Dr. Snyderman covered extensively as a correspondent for Good Morning
America. She presented a special five-part series, which was honored with the 1990
Journalism Award of Excellence by the American Academy of Facial, Plastic and
Reconstructive Surgery.
“Probably the number one thing people never bother to ask their doctor is, ‘Do
you have privileges at a local hospital?’ A lot of doctors just have a surgical room in
their office. If there is an emergency, they don’t have any way of taking care of you
at a local hospital,” cautions Dr. Snyderman. Statistics from the ASAPS illustrate the
need for this type of inquiry: in 2007, over 54 percent of cosmetic procedures were
performed in an office facility; only 17 percent in a hospital. The remaining 29 percent were completed at free-standing surgicenters.
Alan Matarasso, M.D., Clinical Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine concurs, women need to make sure they recognize all the details of a procedure before
going under the knife. When considering any form of plastic surgery, potential
patients should always realize the pre- and post-operative minutiae about possible
complications and long-term consequences. Patients, in many cases, also do not
grasp the length of time necessary for healing and should be clear with their physician about when pre-operative daily routines can resume. “You don’t want to be
sorting out these details after the fact,” emphasizes Dr. Matarasso. “Carefully select
your surgeon. It’s important to do thorough research in selecting a board certified
plastic surgeon.”
Dr. Snyderman also wonders about
women’s motivation for getting plastic surgery. According to the American Academy
of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS), the average
age of patients receiving cosmetic surgery
is 41. Dr. Snyderman encourages women to
find out what is really important to them
as they age, before rushing to the operating table. “Those are very personal decisions. I think the biggest concern I have
about women in plastic surgery is if they
are competing with their teenage daughter
rather than wanting to look their best,” she
says.
As much as she preaches self-care, Dr.
Snyderman must work at taking care of her
own health. Despite advising patients and
humanizing critical illnesses, she admits she
is not immune to being less than perfect, at
times, when it comes to managing her own
health. “Some weeks are better than others.
This week I am batting about zero. I’ve had
long days, and I am about to get on an airplane.” ▲

24 • February 2010 • LONG ISLAND WOMAN
by Robyn D. Weisman, Esq.
Prior to 2008/09
separating or divorcing was always
financially and emotionally difficult. We
lived beyond our
means and dividing
one household into two was challanging. Now with the economy the way it
is, it feels nearly impossible to divide the
household because supporting one
household has gotten even tougher.
Our investments have been shrinking
and so has the equity in our homes.
Emotions are flaring. Not to mention
the huge cost of attorneys fees for separation and divorce.
The time for alternate means of
obtaining a divorce or separation is even
more crucial. Breaking up is surely hard
to do, especially in these times of uncertainty. But there are solutions. Divorce
Mediation and Collaborative Divorce are
out there now and are proven to be successful. “Divorce mediation” allows for
a less expensive means of separating or
divorcing and allows for both spouses to
be able to start over peacefully.
“Collaborative divorce” allows for a
couple to be able to obtain a separation
or divorce with the additional help of
legal and financial professionals to
guide couples in this time of financial
uncertainty. Financial professionals can
be assets in both Mediation and
Collaborative Divorce if needed.
As it’s very nature, mediation, whether
it’s done as pure mediation or collaboratively, offers some creative solutions to
problems that have or will arise as a result
of these unprecedented economic times.
For instance, in a traditional litigated
divorce, the approach to calculating child
support or maintenance and property
division would be based upon current
levels of income and values. It can only
be later modified, if not agreed upon, by
proving a significant change in circumstance, gross error or fraud. Because of
the inflexible nature of litigation, a couple’s ability to rebuild financially after
divorce can be severely hampered.
For example, take a couple with one
self-employed spouse. Due to the economic downturn, their business has suffered tremendously but the parties
would either be forced to use the present income or an average of three years
income to determine support. On the
one side the income would be so low
that the non-wage earner is stuck with
a support amount too low to cover
expenses and on the other side the
income maybe severely inflated making
it difficult for the self-employed spouse
to meet his or her support obligations
and keep the business afloat.
In either of the litigation alternatives,
“mediation” or “collaboration,” flexibility
and creativity is the key. With mediation
or collaborative divorce the parties can
agree on a figure to start with and then
agree to adjust the amount of support
paid at intervals throughout the economic times of recession and recovery. With
collaboration, the process includes in
most cases a Certified Divorce Financial
Analyst (CDFA) or a Certified Financial
Planner (CFP) on the team to assist in the
calculations and generating options. With
mediation, if the parties and the mediator
find that one would be helpful, a CDFA or
CFP can be called in. Both of these
approaches help the couple to accomplish the separation or divorce they are
seeking now, rather than waiting until the
financial situation improves. The same
types of creativity can be established with
the division of property including the marital residence and retirement plans.
Now, during these times of economic
stress, it is so important that parties use
the right strategies and/or keep the
right team of professionals who can
help in making these sound decisions
for them and their families, which will
not only have impact today but also the
future . For more information visit us at

Distracted by Judith Sills, Ph.D.
Springboard Press; 2010; Trade Paperback; 271 pages; $14.99
If you’re single and contemplating diving into the dating pool
after a divorce, death of a spouse or partner, or taking time off
to raise your children, Dr. Judith Sills, a renowned clinical psychologist and author, has an entire book’s
worth of solid, practical advice for you. Don’t
take even a baby step until you’ve read this
book cover to cover! It’s frank, funny, and most
important, reassuring.
According to Dr. Sills, no matter what your
individual circumstance, or how you got to this
point in your life, or even if you are merely considering getting back into the dating scene,
“you will have to navigate an intensely emotional, uncertain, and unsettling period of
time.” In other words, in order to successfully
reenter the world of dating, you’ll need to do
it slowly, deliberately, and consciously. “Your
capacity for introspection and self-awareness
may well have atrophied during your marriage
or motherhood,” writes Dr. Sills, “when you
focused so much on taking care of other people that you lost close touch with yourself.”
Getting naked is not just about removing your clothing. It’s a metaphor for the
process of learning to understand yourself anew as you steer your way through
the maze of building new relationships. It’s about opening yourself up to new
possibilities, even when you are experiencing “an overwhelming sense of uncertainty that accompanies the transition from some safe harbor to the unsheltered
world of single life.”
Instead of being fearful about getting back into
the dating scene, the author suggests that women
approach this new phase of life as a way to learn
more about themselves, about men, and about flirtation, sex, love and dating. “The thinking is a mind
shift to a here-and-now attitude,” advises Dr. Sills,
rather than future considerations. “Believe me,
there will be plenty of time later to worry about all

“Getting naked again is first, foremost, and maybe in the end most important, all about who you are when you meet him,” writes the author. And
who you are will be the result of how much time and effort you put into taking the time to discover your new self. This book can get you through that
necessary process with grace and help you emerge a stronger and more
confident woman.
In the Mood Again: Use the Power of Healthy
Hormones to Reboot Your Sex Life – at Any Age by Genie
James, M.M. SC. and C.W. Randolph, Jr., M.D.
Fireside Books; 2010; Trade Paperback; 295 pages;
$14.99
Whether you’re back in the dating scene and thinking
about sex for the first time in a while or whether you’ve
been married or in a long-term relationship and have found that either you
or your partner (or both of you) have lost interest in sex, this book – written
by a husband-wife team – can help bring back the sizzle in your life. It’s not
a how-to sex manual; it’s a guidebook that teaches both men and women
how to balance the hormones that go awry as we age. Balancing the hormones will not only help your sex life, it will also improve your overall health,
make you feel more energetic, and can even help you lose weight!
While many people blame their dwindling sex drive on age, stress, weight
gain, and fatigue, the authors share a plan that safely and naturally restores
optimum hormone balance and helps individuals and couples regain their
sexual spark. The plan for both men and women includes using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) – as opposed to pharmaceutically
manufactured synthetic hormones, which may have dangerous side effects
– eating a more healthful diet, taking vitamins and natural supplements, and
exercising on a regular basis.
The first step in BHRT is to get hormone levels tested in order to determine which hormones are low and need to be replaced. A doctor or practitioner will prescribe an individual formula that will meet that person’s hormonal needs. BHRT is formulated for individuals; it’s not one-size-fits-all.
Eating certain foods, the authors explain, will naturally help restore hormones. They offer menus for a full week of “sexy-healthy eating,” a complete shopping list, and even a set of recipes. The chapter on herbal medicine is a definitive guide to hormone-increasing supplements. Finally, the
benefits of exercise for increasing hormone levels and improving your sex life are explained in a
clear and concise manner.
“We guarantee that when you combine sexyhealthy eating with herbal supplements and regular exercise,” the authors advise, “you will not
only feel sexier, you will also look it … getting
back in the mood and having the energy for
more sex can improve your health and extend
your life.”◆
Genie James
Both books arrived on the same day. Both titles contained the word
“again.” I thought there was a message that I needed to relate, and that
message is: it’s a bold new world out there, and if you haven’t dated or had
a sexually satisfying relationship recently, it’s time to start exploring and
learning about new options.

Vancouver Island & Nimmo Bay
Nature at its Finest
With the Winter Olympics upon us, Vancouver is garnering
much attention. A destination worthy of its own trip is
Vancouver Island, where nature’s bounty awaits with an
abundance of wildlife and scenic wonders.
We began our adventure with a quick 30-minute drive
from the Vancouver airport to Nainamo where we boarded
a ferry (courtesy of BC Ferries) to Tsawassen. The ferry had
the feel of a large cruise ship, with a spacious sun deck, lots
of comfortable seating and tables, a playroom for the kids,
a cafeteria with a Starbucks café, gift shops and even a pet
area. Despite the fact that our ferry was sold out, there was
plenty of room on board. (It is advised to book in advance as
ferry rides usually sell out during peak season.)
We headed west to Tofino to explore the Pacific Rim. The
picturesque drive took us past majestic mountains and
bright blue lakes that demanded we break for hikes and
photo ops. In Tofino, we stayed at Long Beach Lodge, a rustic and comfortable oceanfront
resort on Cox Bay. The bay is a
haven for surfers, and the lodge’s Great
Room has an expansive view of the bay from
its comfy couches and plush sitting chairs. It
also doubles as a restaurant/bar.
On the Northeast side of the Island, we visited the harbor town of Port McNeill. It’s a
sleepy little town surrounded by abundant
wildlife. There are a few bed and breakfasts
available along with The Black Bear Resort,
where we stayed overnight. Not quite a
resort, but the rooms were acceptable and there was an indoor pool and
spa services available.
Instead of booking space on a large whale-watching boat, we were
fortunate to find Ocean Rose Coastal Adventures. Our guide, Angela
(she’s also the proprietor), was a delight, and she shared her wealth of
information as we skimmed the water on her Zodiac. The Zodiac is a
great way to view the coastal offerings. It’s an intimate motorized raft
that is swift yet remarkably comfortable and seasick proof. Angela has
an innate sonar capability for marine and wildlife with plenty of experience in the surrounding waters. During our thrilling tour, we had upclose and personal viewings of dolphins, humpback, orca and minke
whales, sea lions and bald eagles. Angela supplies everything you need,
from lunch (her homemade cookies were a nice touch) to the gear to
keep you warm and safe.
From Port McNeill, we were on our way – via helicopter – to the highpoint of the vacation: Nimmo Bay. We discovered Nimmo Bay in the
book “1,000 Places to See Before You Die,” by Patricia Schultz, and it

seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime experience worth reviewing for its
promise of beauty, adventure, elegant cuisine and pampering. Nimmo
Bay lived up to its promise and then some!
The helicopter ride was jaw dropping as we weaved around the mountains, over the water and above the clouds where we landed atop a glistening snow-topped glacier. We spent a few minutes taking in the sights
from what seemed like the top of the world, and then got back in the
helicopter to get to Nimmo Bay. We descended from the clouds into a
clearing that opened like curtains onto this little Shangri-La.
It’s a Fantasy-Island-like resort, only accessible by helicopter, that
accommodates up to 18 guests. For those who enjoy fishing (catch and
release), it doesn’t get better than this. Heli-fishing is the big lure here;
helicopters provide access to remote streams and rivers where the fish
are plentiful, and the scenery and tranquility are breathtaking.
Nimmo is also known for pampering its guests and individualized attention. The staff anticipates your needs before you do. This is a family-run
operation where the cheery staff act and feel like part of the family as
well. The atmosphere of caring and attention to detail starts from the
top; owner and founder Craig Murray creates the inimitable atmosphere,
and his true love for his natural surroundings is contagious. (To learn
more about the fascinating history of Nimmo Bay and the Murray family,
you can get the book Finding Nimmo at www.nimmobay.com/book.)
The Murrays have immense respect for the resort’s natural surroundings and are very ecologically conscious. The electricity comes from a
water-driven turbine that was mounted at the base of a nearby waterfall. The resort has been recycling since 1981, and since 2000, has
used a hydroxyl waste water treatment system.

Early Detection is Key to Breast Cancer Survival
by J. Jason Bitter, M.D.
Breast cancer continues to be one of the leading
causes of mortality of women in this county, especially
on Long Island. Every day we learn more about breast
cancer and how to win the battle. One fact is very clear
– the distinct advantage of early detection. Fortunately, breast cancer is highly detectable through digital
mammography screening. If breast cancer is detected
early, before it spreads, 98 percent of the women will
be alive five years later. The earlier it’s discovered, the
earlier it’s treated, the better your chance of survival.
Advances in technology mean better tools for early
detection. Digital mammography provides benefits to
both the patient and the radiologist, including better
visibility, greater image flexibility, shorter exam times,
faster results, fewer call backs and less anxiety. Digital
images are especially helpful for women with implants
and for imaging patients with known abnormalities.
However, mammograms do not replace breast selfexams. Although mammograms can detect cancerous
lesions earlier than you can feel them with a self-exam,
it is still important to examine your breasts every month.
The American Cancer Society recommends that
women over 40 get an annual mammogram to check
for abnormalities or lumps that may indicate early
stages of breast cancer. All women over the age of 20
should obtain an annual clinical breast exam by a
healthcare professional and perform monthly breast
self-exams. Women with personal or family histories of
breast cancer should consult their doctors about the
need for more frequent or earlier mammography. To
reduce your risk of breast cancer, you should breastfeed your children, limit your alcohol intake, maintain
a healthy weight and exercise regularly.
With all the changes in technology, these procedures have become safer and more comfortable
for the patient. Yet many people are confused
and overwhelmed at the task of finding the correct facility. All County MRI and Women’s Imaging
Center offers state of the art digital mammography, 3D sonograms, and a new bone density
(dexa) department in relaxing spa like, non
rushed environment.
To learn more about the importance of early screening for breast cancer, please contact Dr. J. Jason Bitter
at All County Women’s Imaging. Call 516-495-5200
or 516-433-7500 today.

avoiding eye contact and hiding their
mouths with their hands. After cosmetic dental treatment, they leave with
confidence, pride in their appearance,
and a “radiance” about their beautiful
smile. Cosmetic dental treatment has
helped many patients feel great about themselves and
enabled them to communicate with others in ways they
never had before. It is remarkable how many people are
negatively affected by their smiles, when often just
whitening their teeth makes a world of difference.
Having a realistic expectation is very important for a
cosmetic dental patient. Prior to any dental treatment
we offer in-depth face-to-face consultations during
which we review the patient’s diagnostic images to
address their dental needs and better understand their
vision for their customized “dream smile”. Wedding,
class or celebrity smile photos are great tools to help us
see what the patient feels is a beautiful smile and to
determine what details we can incorporate into their
own ideal smile.

Dysport
Conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, old
crowns, and bridgework may require more complex
treatment to bring back a healthy oral environment; and
of course, the beautiful smile the patient is looking for.
Patients who are considering cosmetic dentistry
should ask the dentist about the details of their potential treatment - not only a “before and after” picture.
Sometimes the road to a fabulous smile may be short
or have some benchmarks. Most importantly, it involves
developing a relationship with a cosmetic dentist that
has open lines of communication. Treatment of the
gums, tooth position, color, and shape, may be needed
to get a person's smile healthy and to esthetically
achieve their goals. Every smile is as individual as its
bearer and one treatment does not work for all.
