CANBY CLINIC - Dr. Robert Neilson, ND In the natural health community, there are few topics that stir up as much controversy as coffee.  This article by no means settles the controversy, rather, it brings about the main “Pro’s and Con’s” to coffee consumption. Recently there have been several studies on the health benefits from coffee including a reduced risk of various cancers, Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and depression.  The beneficial effects from coffee are from the antioxidants from both the caffeine and the polyphenols.  Coffee also has a role in reducing inflammation, which is at the heart of most chronic disease

There is of course, the dark side to coffee as well.  Caffeine can have adverse effects on health including raising blood pressure, increasing cholesterol, irritating the stomach, worsening fibrocystic breast syndrome, and causing anxiety.  I would recommend avoiding coffee if you are exhausted, because it can further tire out your adrenal system.  Another issue around coffee to consider is mold and pesticides.  Coffee is one of the most heavily sprayed foods and mold has been present in up to 30% of the coffee on the market.  To minimize the mold and pesticides in your coffee, freshly grind the beans, and use higher quality organic coffee.  

If you are interested in more information regarding coffee, and whether it is a good beverage for you, please visit with one of the physician at Canby Clinic.  To set up an appointment, call (503) 266-7443 or visit us at 452 NW 1st Avenue in Canby.

MICHAEL D. CARY, DMD - Dr. Michael Cary“Brush your teeth twice a day.” “Don’t forget to floss every day.” “Visit the dentist twice a year.”

We’ve been hearing this advice our whole life. Yet so few actually follow it. One-third of Americans don’t brush twice a day. Half of Americans never floss. And a third don’t visit the dentist at all.

Taking care of your teeth for just 5 minutes per day and visiting the dentist regularly can reduce chance of heart disease, infections and even dementia — as well as issues with our teeth and gums.

Brush twice a day and floss daily:

To remove plaque, a whitish substance that coats the teeth. It contains bacteria that can cause major health problems in your mouth as well as throughout your body, from your lungs to your heart to your brain.

To prevent cavities. The bacteria in plaque converts sugars from the food you eat into acid plaque, which softens tooth enamel and causes holes in the teeth.

Visit the dentist twice per year:

To remove tartar. Plaque can harden on teeth and under the gum line to form tartar. Tartar and bacteria can make your gums swell and bleed (a condition called gingivitis).  This can progress into advanced gum disease and eventual tooth loss. Tartar can only be removed with a dental cleaning by a dental hygienist.

To identify problems before they get worse.

Call today to schedule a dental cleaning or if you have any questions about your oral health, our staff is happy to help.

GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonAccording to the Department of Transportation, more than 40 percent of young adults age 19 and younger are licensed and on the road. These teen drivers face crash rates nearly three times higher than those of drivers 20 years of age and older, and those rates climb even higher at night and when teen passengers are present. Statistics like these help explain why younger drivers can be more expensive to insure.

If you're looking for ways to offset the increase in annual premiums after adding a teen driver, take note of these possible cost-saving measures.

Include them on an existing policy. If your teen will share the cars you already own, you may save some money by assigning them to the vehicle that's the least expensive to insure.

Buy your teen an older vehicle. If your new driver will need his or her own car, you can generally get lower rates by putting them in an older, used model.

Take advantage of good-student discounts. Some insurance companies offer a discount to students who make and maintain good grades.

Still, most parents are also concerned about their child's well-being on the road. Keep safety in mind when car shopping, and investigate technology like monitoring devices that let you supervise your child's speed and location or cell phone signal blockers that prevent calls and texts while the car is in motion.

NEAL FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Alan NealWhen you first think of crowns, you probably first think about the kind of crown that goes on your head. But for those with chipped or cracked teeth, or for those with discolored or misshapen teeth, dental crowns can lead to a healthier smile. With that in mind, here are a few questions about crowns, answered.

What is a crown? According to the Academy of General Dentistry, a crown is a restoration that covers (or “caps”) a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, which can strengthen and improve the appearance of the tooth. The crown replaces the hard outer part of the tooth called the enamel, which is usually only 1 to 2 mm in thickness. A crown can be fabricated from porcelain, from gold, or from a combination of porcelain and metal. Crowns made out of porcelain can look exactly like a natural tooth.

What’s the procedure for getting a crown? Crowns are usually fabricated over two visits. The first visit determines the best way to restore the tooth, and may include a core build-up, creation of a temporary crown, and forming an impression to be sent to the laboratory. The lab then creates the crown, which is then delivered into place during a second dental visit.

What should I do if I still have questions about this procedure? For more information, or if you have any questions related to crowns, come to Neal Family Dental for an in-person consultation with a dental professional to address your concerns.

MCLARENS CARPET ONE - Steve McLarenWindows do more than just let in light and offer a view to the outdoors.

Did you know 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows?

Heat moves toward cold and windows offer a perfect path. In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows. In summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, energy consumptions can be reduced, saving on heating and cooling costs, plus, create a more comfortable living space.

The warmth provided by the sun, its solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but in the summer, it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable—driving up air conditioning costs. Insulating shades help to control solar heat by preventing it from escaping in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer.

Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light. By drawing natural light deeper into a room many window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.

McLarens Carpet One is a Hunter Douglas Priority Dealer. We carry energy efficient Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb window treatments. We would be happy to work with you to choose the right treatments to make your home more energy efficient.

CLUB FIT - FROM LEFT: Ron and Barb RainesAt Club Fit, we believe it is important to remember that fitness is an ongoing process; it is a journey with no destination. At the same time, fitness goals are an excellent motivator, pushing people to commit to a healthy lifestyle. If you’ve stopped making progress on your fitness goals, a change in your workout may be all you need to get back on track.

As you settle into a fitness routine, your body begins to adjust, reacting less and less to the same workout. To keep your body reacting and to stimulate muscle growth, you need to mix up your workout routine. A great way to do this is to take one of the group classes we offer at Club Fit; Spinning, Body Blast, Yoga, and Boot Camp classes are all offered in a fun, friendly environment.

After a little more intensity? Designed by Ron, CORE-fit is an intense workout for those wanting to really push themselves. Ron carries many certifications, including AFAA, TRX, CrossFit, and P90X, and these coupled with Ron’s experiences as a Marine and triathlete give Ron the know-how to give each participant an exciting and SAFE workout.

If you’re looking to save time, see one of our trainers or develop your own circuit workout. Circuits are a quick way to get cardio and weights all in one rapid session. And to really shock those muscles and improve your bone density, throw at least one heavy lift a week in.

CANBY TELCOM - Amy Russ, Product Marketing ManagerWhat can Pokemon Go do for Canby?

The hugely popular augmented reality mobile app “Pokemon Go” was released on July 6 with an unprecedented adoption rate that surpassed the daily active user number for Netflix, Twitter, and Pandora* in just 5 days. Pokemon Go is a 20-year old entertainment franchise comprised of 150 different fictional creatures to “catch.”

People use their smartphones a great deal already – mostly to do individual activities like check email, chat, navigate, or enjoy a song or video while plugged into earbuds. The Pokemon Go app encourages walking, geocaching and socialization through in person and online interactions. The app has motivated people of all ages to explore their neighborhoods to catch a Jigglypuff, given adults and children an outdoor bonding adventure searching for Pikachu, and encourages complete strangers of all ages to interact with each other as to where to find a Charmander, or learn tips about the game.

CANBY TELCOM - Local landmarks like the Chamber of Commerce building have been turned into Pokestops in the new game Pokemon Go

Bonus items are rewarded to users who physically visit local landmarks like the Chamber of Commerce building, prominent and historical businesses, park statues and dedication placards. There are over 30 historic and iconic locations in the app around Canby to visit and learn about. Businesses in other towns have sponsored “lures” that attract rarer creatures to nearby Pokestops to increase foot traffic to their storefront.

Pokemon Go is not a traditional form of socialization, but it is an up and coming form of ‘enjoy anywhere’ entertainment using modern technology that combines fitness, adventure and socialization with a potential small local business opportunity.

CANBY FORD - Great deals can be yours at Canby Ford!The old adage for getting your oil changed told you to bring your car in every 3,000 miles. Here at Canby Ford, however, we know that is simply not the case anymore. We now recommend that you bring your car in every 5,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first.

The reasons for this are pretty simple; for starters, the quality of engine oil has vastly improved, meaning that you simply don’t need to change your oil out as often. We use a synthetic oil blend from Motorcraft that offers superior performance and couple that with a Motorcraft oil filter to help your engine stay running smooth.

In addition to excellent new oil blends, most newer vehicles are equipped with oil life monitors, a feature that lets you know when to take your car in for servicing. Thanks to extended service intervals, service visits are now forty three percent lower than they were under the old 3,000 mile standard.

Each visit is not simply an oil/oil filter change, however. Our 5,000 mile checkups also rotate your tires, fill your engine’s other fluids (coolant, brake, power steering, transmission), and inspect a whole lot of things: Battery connections, front disc brakes/rear brake lining, radiator/heater/A/C hoses, and more. And we’ll fill out a vehicle report card for you, so you know what’s good right now, and what’s getting ready to be replaced.

Stop in at Canby Ford today for comprehensive vehicle service!

CANBY BUILDERS SUPPLY - Jeff CorcoranFor months you’ve been talking about painting the outside of your house this summer. Let me suggest that you look at the calendar so you can avoid “Labor Day panic.” Instead of enjoying that last weekend of summer, you suddenly remember you had planned on painting the house! If you are a homeowner, you know all too well that almost all projects take longer than you think. When you start doing the prep work, you will inevitably find a thing or two that needs to be fixed before you can begin painting. If you wait too long, you may actually run out of good painting weather!

Here are a few painting tips:

1) Remove loose & flaking old paint. If a previous coat is failing, it may continue to let go, and take the new paint off along with it.

2) Prime bare or new wood. The right primer has better adhesion and stain blocking properties than paint alone (even if the label says “paint & primer in one”).

3) Choose quality paint. Resist the temptation to buy cheap paint. Good paint covers better, is easier to work with, and will last much longer. In the big picture, spending a few extra dollars per gallon pays big dividends!

If you have any more questions, stop by Canby Builders Supply and we can talk!

CANBY BUILDERS SUPPLY - James RydmarkClose your eyes, picture this:

It is a nice summer day, you step out onto your beautiful cedar deck. You feel the warm wood beneath your bare feet and smell the wonderful scent from the deck. Then you smile, knowing you made the right choice in choosing cedar for the new deck and fence.

Why cedar?

  • Cedar is an excellent option for year-round use because it is durable and withstands our Pacific Northwest weather. It won’t shrink even when exposed to all the rain.
  • Because of the natural preservatives, cedar is resistant to decay and damage from insects.
  • Cedar is a renewable and biodegradable resource so the environment benefits, too.
  • Most of all, the investment was worth it. The cedar deck will last for decades. And, with minimal maintenance, using a quality product like Penofin, you’ll have more time to enjoy the deck with friends and family instead of maintaining it.
  • Canby Builders Supply has old growth, kiln-dried, tight knot, Canadian cedar ready for your new deck or fence. James, CBS Insider Expert, will help you plan and design your new deck, and even help you find an installer.

    Come see him today, he’ll be happy to answer questions and help you.

    MCLARENS CARPET ONE - Steve McLarenAs we celebrate our independence on July 4th let’s stop and remember those brave men and women who have fought, and are fighting, to protect that freedom.

    Many soldiers are returning home with catastrophic injuries. Through Building for America’s Bravest, a program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, Smart Homes are being built for these injured service people. Each home is custom designed to address the unique need of the individual.

    Using “adaptive technology” these homes are energy efficient, automated and easily accessible to help the most severely injured heroes live better, more independent lives.

    But as amazing as adaptive home technology is, it's far beyond the reach of most veterans and their modest pensions. The waiting list for these homes is long and for every home built, another three veterans join the list.

    These service men and women made extraordinary sacrifices in our place. When the call came, they answered. They made sacrifices for us.

    Carpet One Floor & Home, is a proud to partner with Building For America’s Bravest™ . Our organization is committed to installing flooring in all the homes scheduled to be built through 2016, giving them a home they can come home to.

    If you’d like to learn more about this project and how you can help, visit Building for America’s Bravest at carpetone.com/our-bravest. Or, stop by McLarens Carpet One Flooring & Home to make a donation.
