Yankton Vermillion Sioux City 2018 Broadway, Yankton 605-665-4348 Funeral & Cremation Pharmacy/Nutrition Why do many funeral homes make it hard to figure out their prices and costs? Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease Q. A. Jim Goglin Funeral Director, CFSP 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!

There are many new agents used today to help control your blood sugars and maintain a reasonable A1C.

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. 2507 Fox Run Parkway, Yankton, SD, 665-8073 Fitness/Health Q. A. Dr. Baily, I know I have hearing loss but I don t think I m ready for hearing aids. Are there risks to not having my hearing loss treated? Kendra Bailey, Au.D. CCC-A A. That s a great question and I d be happy to answer it! It s unfortunate that you feel you are not ready for hearing aids at this time as there are several consequences to untreated hearing loss. Multiple studies have repeatedly documented the negative cognitive, social, and psychological effects of untreated hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss has been linked to increased fatigue, depression, loneliness, irritability, and anger. In addition, individuals tend to start avoiding or withdrawing from social situations. Job performance can also be negatively impacted by not treating a known hearing loss. I strongly recommend reconsidering your decision to not pursue hearing aids. At Avera Medical Group, our goal is to get you started on the road to better hearing health. We d be happy to sit down and discuss your options with you.
