10 Signs You May Be Suffering from Hearing Loss

By Kirsten Daniels, Au.D., CCC-A Like any medical condition, the sooner you address hearing loss the better. Here are 10 common signs that you may have hearing loss. You have trouble hearing on the phone. Mobile and landline phones are equipped with a volume control setting, so you might not have trouble hearing your friend, co-worker or client because you’ve amped the telephone to the max. Check the volume setting, and if you find yourself inching the volume up louder and louder, you may have hearing loss. Your family (or neighbor!) complains that your TV is too loud. Television programs can be hard to follow, particularly during times when music is drowning out dialogue. Turning the TV up louder doesn’t always help make the sound clearer. If you consistently need the TV turned up so loud to understand the dialogue, it’s time to get a hearing test. You’re tired from straining to hear conversations. Constantly straining to hear and follow conversation is mentally and physically fatiguing. Doing so can make you feel exhausted and worn out after even a normal day. So, if a typical day of conversing with coworkers, friends and family leaves you with a headache or feeling physically fatigued, you may have hearing loss. You have trouble following a conversation when multiple people talk at the same time. Our ability to process multiple incoming and competing signals deteriorates over time, so being a little lost in conversation occasionally isn’t always a sign of hearing loss. However, if you’re at a work meeting or eating dinner with family, and you frequently have a hard time keeping up when two...

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, White Fish Cooking Class

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, White Fish Dietitian Debra Sanders of Vibrant Health partnered with Family Fresh Market to present a healthy cooking class “1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, White Fish” to teach participants how to make heart-healthy fish tacos with cod and salmon with veggies. Debra introduces one of the menu items for tonight’s cooking class (asparagus) in the Family Fresh kitchen. To keep asparagus fresh, place it in an asparagus jar (stalk side up) filled 1/2 with water and store in the fridge. To garnish the cod fish tacos, a colorful coleslaw was made, which included red cabbage, carrots, peaches, green onions, and lime juice. Debra showing off one of the cute “sample-sized” tortillas! Debra pan-frying the cod for the fish tacos. It was cooked on medium-high in a greased pan. Cook covered for 3 minutes, flip, uncovered for 1 minute, and then covered for 2 minutes. The beautifully done salmon with asparagus and lemon! The finished products! Thank you to everyone who came out! We hope to see you in November at our next cooking class, Mouthwatering Meatless Meals.  ...

Weekend Highlights- September 16 & 17

On Saturday, September 16th, Spring Valley Dam Days hosted their 30th annual 5K & 10K Family Fun Run, which Vibrant Health sponsored. Runners were #poweredbyhealthandwellness even through the rain! Great job to everyone who came out to support the Spring Valley Lions Club! Thank you to Vibrant Health employees Denise Burkett, Dennis Paul, and Sierra Hawkins who participated. The same morning, even 1,111 miles away in San Antonio, Texas, the Tashjian family was #poweredbyhealthandwellness. Dr. Tashjian, his wife Barb, and his son Eddie ran a 5K at the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) conference. We had a busy Sunday #supportingourcommunity! We started in Spring Valley with the Spring Valley Dam Days parade. Samantha, Julie, Sierra, Brandi, and Chad handed out lip balm/sunscreen sticks. Julie did double duty- she walked in the parade AND worked in the Spring Valley Lions Club burger booth. Talk about being #poweredbyhealthandwellness! After that, we headed over to River Falls for our first Walk With A Doc event. Nora Bennett C-NP spoke about the importance of eating fresh food, particularly produce. She even brought banana peppers and eggplants (that she grew herself) for everyone to bring home! Thanks to everyone who came out to Hoffman Park. See you next week at 5:15 p.m. for our next WWAD event! We love the communities we are part of!...
