    ? HVAC Computers/Networks Do I need to upgrade to Windows 10 operating system? Q. A. Matthew Technician Yes. More and more software and web browsers require the Windows 10 operating system to run them efficiently. Additionally, most Quickbooks and Turbo tax require you use Windows 10 to run them. Windows 7 will continue to work through approximately the rest of 2019 but come next year, you may not be able to do your taxes or access your financial data without upgrading to Windows 10. There are benefits to upgrading as Windows 10 is designed to be safer for browsing the web. It can be take some getting used to, but once you are comfortable with it, Windows 10 is very user friendly. 1901 Broadway, Yankton 605-664-2222 Q. A.

Yankton Vermillion Sioux City 2018 Broadway, Yankton www.kalinsindoor.com 605-665-4348 It s that time of year again summer! As we are outside more and more, we need to use extra caution to prevent Dana List PharmD sunburn. With so many different products on the market, it s important to know the differences when choosing a sunscreen. Chemical sunscreens with broad spectrum coverage take about 15-30 minutes to be absorbed into the skin and provide protection from harmful UVA & UVB rays. Products with ingredients like avobenzone increase UVA protection where as oxybenzone increases UVB protection. Physical or mineral sunscreens contain zinc or titanium oxide and are beneficial for sensitive skin as they are not absorbed into the skin but rather deflect harmful rays. Remember: apply sunscreen to all exposed skin, rub in well and reapply often especially if swimming/sweating. Avoid contact with the eyes but do not forget the lips. If you opt for a spray sunscreen, use an adequate amount and be sure to rub in well after spraying. Do not spray it on or near the face; instead, spray your hands, then apply to the face and neck. Babies under six months should not be in direct sunlight or be exposed to sunscreen. Parents of children older than six months should apply SPF 30 or higher, while choosing a product specifically for children that contain fewer irritating ingredients for their sensitive skin. Pharmacy 665-8261 Ear, Nose & Throat Chiropractic Q. Q. Sheila Fitzgerald, DC A. Headaches, both tension and migraine headaches are the second most common condition managed by chiropractors. Research supports that chiropractic care is effective for decreasing intensity and even frequency of headaches. Few interventions can give headache relief naturally like chiropractic can. After a good history and exam, we can identify contributing factors for the headache including joint dysfunction, trigger points, jaw problems, poor posture and poor diet. Chiropractic has always recognized that the body has an amazing innate ability to heal itself. It s our job to create the environment to allow that to happen and to educate our patients on what they can do to help themselves as well. Fitness/Health Q. A. Ma am, you are definitely not alone! Research has shown at least 50 million adults suffer from some form of tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Tinnitus is a highly complicated issue rooted deeply in our neural pathways and often a symptom of hearing loss or some degree of damage to the inner ear. Sometimes, properly fit hearing aids equipped with tinnitus management technology ease the awareness of tinnitus. I recommend starting with a comprehensive hearing evaluation to obtain baseline information and learn more about how to manage your tinnitus. Additionally, I encourage you to visit the American Tinnitus Association s website: www.ata.org. If you would like more information, you can contact our office at (605) 655-1220. Avera Sacred Heart Hospital Professional Office Pavilion 409 Summit St., Ste. 2600, Yankton 668-8601 Podiatry I m and have Q. If sorediabeticfoot, do I a on my Angie O Connor Clinical Exercise Specialist Both ellipticals and treadmills can provide you a fantastic cardiovascular workout. The treadmill will give you a great calorie burn and is great for both runners and walkers. Adjusting the speed, incline/decline and programs can simulate running outdoors but with the newer model beds they can provide a bit less impact on your joints. The elliptical is great because your feet never leave the pedals. You don t have any impact so it s even better for your ankles, knees and hips than the cushioned treadmill. They also provide an upper body workout when you push and pull the arm handles and increase the resistance. Another added benefit is that you can reverse your direction quite easily working your muscles in a whole new way (not recommended on a treadmill). It can burn a significant amount of calories but it does take a bit of coordination to do properly. Both are great machines and my suggestion would be to mix it up and vary your routine with both! 501 Summit, Yankton 668-8357 Dr. Baily, over the past several years, I ve noticed a constant ringing in my ears. Is there Kendra Bailey, anything I can do to stop this? Au.D. CCC-A A. 2507 Fox Run Parkway, Yankton, SD, 665-8073 Is an elliptical or treadmill better for my cardio workout? Jeff Sage Service Technician Sunscreen Use Unfortunately, many funeral homes make it difficult for the general public to decipher their services because they simply don t want everyone to know how expensive their services have become. And they certainly don t want people to compare prices between funeral homes. A healthy market for the public requires competition between businesses. Funeral homes need to compete for better services at lower prices something we are quite proud to have been offering the Yankton community. Due to pressure from our continued exceptional advertised prices for cremations and memorial services, our competitor funeral homes have either frozen their annual inflation and/or even slightly lowered their prices. We find this is a success for the Yankton community and will continue to offer exceptional services at unbeatable prices. Call or stop by today to get all the answers and prices you need or want! Have you considered chiropractic care for your headaches? maintenance agreement? Pharmacy/Nutrition Funeral & Cremation Why do many funeral homes make it hard to figure out their prices and costs? are the benefits Q. What HVAC preventative of an need to have it evaluated? A. Christine Wiarda, D.P.M. The answer of course is Yes! Here is why. More than 16 million people in the US have diabetes. Approximately 10-15% of those will develop a foot ulcer, or a sore which is typically on the bottom of the foot. These are usually due to some underlying problem, which doesn t allow adequate healing to occur. Some examples of these conditions are lack of feeling to the feet, lack of blood flow, or a combination of both. If these are left untreated and are not offloaded appropriately, amputation is likely to occur. The bottom line is the sooner these underlying problems can be evaluated and treated, the amputation rate decreases.
