Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, December 9, 1970 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon THURSDAY, DEC. 10 Your birthday today: A period begins of facing the firm realities of your age and circumstances - changing the things you can and learning to live with the things you can't. In order to advance your own growth, you must inspire others to do likewise. Emotional life now promises rich and rewarding experience. Today's natives are enthusiastic talkers who generally gather many friends, may lead their local community. ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19): Fellow workers are apt to be restless and upset your routines. There's an opening for a bit of fun - speak quickly if you want to go along, but don't spend much money. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Conservative people push you to go along with their system, though your own is better. Travel, errands require extra time and care. Neighbors tend to get in the way. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Don't let any of today's little discrepancies bother you. Gad- LAWRENCE? E. LAMB. M. D. Ear artery malfunction can impair balance Dear Dr. Lamb - I've been told I have hardening of the arteries in the inner ear. Can you tell me what causes that? Will that affect the brain? When I walk I lose my balance. Dear Reader - "Hardening of the arteries" is a term often used for arteriosclerosis. The process begins in men early in life and usually later in women. First, fat deposits build up in the wall of the arteries. As the fat deposits enlarge they obstruct the normal flow of blood. The damaged artery may become calcified. Arteriosclerosis can literally happen to any artery in the body. When it obstructs circulation it causes the organ or part to lose its normal function. If it is an artery to the brain the result can be senility, a stroke or other signs of abnormal brain function. If the artery to the heart is sufficiently diseased, a heart attack or heart trouble may occur. Involvement of the arteries to the kidneys can cause kidney problems and even high blood pressure. The arteries to the legs frequently are involved, limiting walking or other exercise. If severe obstruction to the circulation occurs, gangrene of the feet can result. Involvement of the arteries in the pelvis not only cause trouble with walking, but in men it can cause loss of sexual function or impotence. Since any artery can be involved' anywhere in the body, it is pure hogwash to think that even a perfect mechanical heart will solve the arteriosclerosis problem. A perfect mechanical heart in a body cripplied by arteriosclerosis is not a magnificent achievement. What is needed is a way to prevent arterioscleros-is throughout the body, including the inner ear. When the arteries to the ear are involved, the small semicircular canals that help to control the body's balance don't function properly. These little balance mechanisms normally send signals to the brain about your body position. Almost automatically the brain responds by adjusting muscles to maintain body balance. When the signal from the balance mechanism is lost or impaired, a person is apt to stumble. It is difficult or impossible to do much about this problem. Preventing arteriosclerosis is the best hope. Usually, one has to adjust his living habits to protect himself from falling. Devices to help with walking are sometimes advisable. The bathroom deserves extra attention to provide ways of using the hands and arms to maintain balance. Special efforts should be made to eliminate the possibility of falling. Many older people do fall in the bathroom and too often the end result is broken, brittle bones and a trio to the hospital. *   Dear Dr. Lamb - A broken hip one year ago, a pin in it. Can there be harm: taking 100 sitting-up exercises in bed each morning? Always took plenty of exercise - 80 years old. Dear Reader - That's wonderful. I'm sure from your letter that you are apparently already doing the sit-ups. That means it must not be bothering your hip. Go ahead and do them -and congratulations! GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.
