ViroCarb’s anti HIV Crowd Funding Campaign

Toronto, Canada, December 01, 2014 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — ViroCarb Inc. has launched a worldwide crowd funding campaign to promote the development of its new HIV infection inhibitor.

WORLD AIDS DAY – Make a donation to save lives from AIDS! Support new treatment development at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/funding-a-new-therapy-against-drug-resistant-hiv/x/9240077

Despite the great progress made in HIV/AIDS treatment, there is still an urgent need for new drugs, particularly for people who have had to abandon existing treatments due to HIV drug resistance and side effects.

The current treatment of HIV/AIDS involves the use of three or more drugs from five main general classes, used in combination. While this antiretroviral therapy (ART) has helped to reduced morbidity and mortality from AIDS, long term toxicity and the emergence and transmission of drug resistant HIV strains limit the effectiveness. Thus, despite therapy which can render this a chronic, rather than acute fatal infection, development of new drugs to prevent infection and overcome drug resistant strains, is increasingly urgent.

ViroCarb Inc. is developing a novel technology that addresses infections by drug resistant HIV strains. Developed from the identification of a new, natural resistance factor against HIV infection by scientists at SickKids and Canadian Blood Services, ViroCarb’s inhibitor works against a previously overlooked target on the virus to block HIV from entering human cells, the very first step in the infection. It works against all HIV strains.

Funds are needed to aid in moving forward to support preclinical studies; therefore ViroCarb Inc. has started an international crown funding campaign to carry out these HIV model studies needed before conducting clinical trials.
Please support this new way to block HIV.

Hays PureWater Launches $10,000 Campaign To Save Lives

WASHINGTON, IA, November 25, 2014 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — 783 million people live each day without clean water and 3.4 million die annually from a lack of pure water. To combat these staggering statistics, Washington-based nonprofit, Hays PureWater, launched a crowd-funding campaign. The money raised will fund 30 Khlor Glen technology units to purify water for 150,000 individuals. The organization hopes to raise $10,000 by December 1st.

Hosted on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo, the project offers nine sponsorship levels. Each level includes novelty “rewards” for donors, ranging from stickers to t-shirts to a trip to Haiti. The rewards are unique, innovative and hands on, giving donors a sense of ownership in the project. For just $2,500, an investor can travel to Haiti (all inclusive) to see the life changing benefits first hand.

The Khlor Glen is a simple unit that turns salt water into chlorine. The chlorine treats infected water, removing deadly impurities and toxins in just one hour. It’s solar powered and easily used in remote areas, where clean water is most needed. “It will also impact malaria zones as it can be used as a bug repellant and protect from disease,” says founder John Hays. “Even just using the chlorine produced by the unit as a sanitizer can cut down on so many infections that the natives in these areas don’t even know exist.”

In the last eight years, Hays PureWater distributed over 4,000 purifying units around the world, changing entire communities by implementing this system. It’s proven to work. Hays builds each system with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. Nothing is outsourced, ensuring the most effective product for the lowest cost. Now all they need is help from their community to change the lives of those in need once more.

See the crowd-funding campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hays-purewater-providing-clean-water-globally

ABOUT Hays PureWater
In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays began to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. John, who worked with municipal water works for over 30 years, put his experience to use and developed the Khlor Gen system. Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. The organization exists to provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.

Health Gorilla Releases Mobile Application for Doctors

Digital Health Leader Expands Marketplace Access with Mobility

SUNNYVALE, CA., 2014-8-20 — /EPR Healthcare News/ — Health Gorilla™, Inc., the first online healthcare marketplace to connect doctors and clinicians with over 9,000+ diagnostic labs and 35,000+ radiology centers, has announced today the release of Health Gorilla mobile.  Health Gorilla mobile provides access to the Health Gorilla Marketplace through the Apple® iPhone® and iPad™.

Today over 68% of doctors have standardized on the Apple platform to communicate with peers and patients. Doctors can now use their mobile devices to place electronic orders with Health Gorilla mobile to diagnostic labs, radiology centers, physical therapy, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and durable medical equipment (DME) and other medical providers nationwide with the ability to track and review the results instantly as they arrive.  Physicians can then forward electronic results within their practice or exchange them with peers and patients to streamline the process and improve quality of care.

According to a study published by the New England Journal of Medicine noted that approximately 59.3% of all of a primary care physician’s daily emails were for the interpretation of test results and 21.7% were responses to patients.  The use of email generally increases the risk for doctors and their patients as most email services are not HIPAA compliant.

Another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that researchers from the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Houston conducted a survey of primary care practitioners and found that a third reported missing alerts about test results from an electronic health record notification system designed to inform them when a patient has abnormal test results.

Doctors are adopting iPad and iPhones as the platform of choice to communicate with peers and patients. Health Gorilla mobile integrated messaging greatly reduces the risk in communication between a doctor and their patients by offering a fully HIPAA compliant environment. Health Gorilla mobile enables a physician to securely and compliantly forward diagnostic test results, radiology images, admission and discharge summaries and other clinical documents to patients and care coordinators through secure messaging.

Benefits of Health Gorilla Mobile Include:

  • HIPAA compliant and ONC modular certified MU2 solution
  • Order in less time than it takes to use fax forms
  • Receive results faster wherever you are
  • Forward results to patients instantly
  • Immediately refer results to another doctor and send messages
  • Eliminate error prone paper processes
  • Mobile solution available at no charge for doctors and their teams

“We believe that the value proposition is clear and compelling for doctors and their teams.” said Steve Yaskin, Chief Executive Office, Health Gorilla, Inc.  “The existing process is heavily dependent on paper, fax and manual processing.  It is slow, cumbersome and prone to error.  Doctors can better manage their time, and the time of their administrative and care coordinating teams, by using the power of the marketplace through the Health Gorilla app.  Now they have one place to order from any diagnostic lab, radiology center, hospital, physical therapy, sleep center, SNF and other healthcare providers in the United States.  A doctor can start with us the first day and begin ordering through the marketplace immediately.  Health Gorilla is the first to deliver this capability.  No other vendor can provide this benefit.”

Health Gorilla mobile is available as an approved Apple® enterprise application and will be distributed to existing Health Gorilla Marketplace users via a secure link for the next month.  In September Health Gorilla mobile app will be available from the Apple® store and will be fully integrated with the Apple® Health app upon its release.

About Health Gorilla
Health Gorilla™ is the first online healthcare marketplace to connect all doctors and clinicians with over 9,000+ diagnostic labs and 35,000+ radiology centers.  Doctors and their teams can instantly place orders, get results, and completely eliminate paper faxes. Uniquely, our HIPAA compliant and ONC modular certified MU2 solution is available immediately at absolutely no charge for doctors and clinicians.

New Medical Website offers free consultation in Perth!

Usually, a new medical website launch is not news worthy. They come in a dozen every month. But Body Shaping Perth is making the difference this month. By far.

Bodyshapingperth.com.au is not just another medical website, coming out of nowhere. It is a new website dedicated in cosmetic surgery and it is the brain child of Dr. Jayson Oates and his team at Academy Facial Plastics. In case you are not familiar with one of the best cosmetic surgery clinics in Western Australia, Dr. Oates and his team of trained medical professionals are responsible for a huge number of successful cosmetic surgeries in Western Australia (Perth).

This same team now brings you bodyshapingperth.com.au which offers up to date information about a number of intimate surgical procedures: labiaplasty, labia minora – labia majora augmentation, penis enlargement, vaginal rejuvenation, G-spot augmentation, liposuction and coolsculpting®.

Intimate cosmetic surgery is not a fad or something that people do only for aesthetic reasons. There are a number of people who need intimate cosmetic surgery for medical reasons. Body Shaping Perth offers solutions and suggestions for both these groups of patients.

What is new about this website is that not only it is full of related information and answers to questions that maybe some people would be afraid to ask, but it also offers a free medical consultation with one of the medical professionals in the clinic! You only need to book your appointment! How many medical sites offer such a service?

During the consultation you can ask any kind of related questions and have a full set of answers focused on your specific needs. Probably these needs will have to do with intimate cosmetic surgery. But if you have questions in general regarding cosmetic surgery, the way your body looks, the way that you see yourself, the way that your face is shaped, the medical professionals of bodyshapingperth.com.au will be again more than happy to answer you. For example did you know that many aesthetic procedures are non-evasive and that the recovery period varies from hours to days, depending on the procedure?

Even if you are not so keen on visiting the state of the art clinic of Body Shaping Perth(located in Subiaco, WA) you can navigate through its pages and still find the answers that you seek regarding intimate cosmetic surgery whether you are a man or a woman.

On the heals of the successful campaign for Soylent, Nutrit promises a meal replacement product that has been totally reimagined. Nutrit provides a complete days nutrition while helping a person avoid processed ingredients, soy, wheat, dairy, GMOs, and Dairy. Nutrit is made up of organic proteins and fats, flavored with organic cocoa. Nutrit costs less than fast food, is easier to make than instant noodles, and tastes similar to chocolate milk.

Meal replacement as an idea is a sound one. In a fast paced society, its hard to avoid problem ingredients and at the same time get the nutrition one requires to stay healthy. Its all too easy, in a pinch, to reach for something in a vending machine or fall back on take out food. To date, meal replacement products and protein concoctions offer an unmeasured nutrient value, and mostly contain ingredients that can cause inflammation. Nutrit has solved those problems by being an easy mix powder, that offers an organic, non-GMO ingredient list that mirrors RDA requirements.

Nutrits Crowdtilt campaign is primarily being undertaken to provide funds to meet our vendors initial minimum order quantities. The merits of this product stand on there own, and we feel it is important to get it out there. Nutrit can help the average person avoid problem ingredients, and control calorie intake, all while getting more complete nutrition than is afforded by a standard diet.

Find out more at our site; www.nutritmr.com and get involved at:https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/nutrit.

Virtual Pediatrics, “Immediate Medical Care, Virtually Anywhere” — Online Pediatric Healthcare Consults for Your Sick or Injured Child — To Launch This Month

Virtual Pediatrics (www.virtualpediatrics.com), a national pediatric telemedicine service dedicated specifically to children, provides immediate medical care to those sick or injured, without them having to leave the comfort of their home. Certified family and pediatric health care providers, through online webcam consultation, provide personalized treatment plans, including e-prescriptions if needed. Virtual Pediatrics is set to launch in 10 states (AZ, CA, FL, GA, IL, NJ, NY, NC, TX & VA) this month.

Virtual Pediatrics Providers

Virtual Pediatrics dedicated and compassionate providers, who are board certified, licensed and credentialed to practice in their respective state, remain on standby for consultation from the hours of 8am to 12am, seven days a week.

Why Wait?

Children no longer need to wait a day or two to see their family doctor, nor will they have to wait in a crowded office or ER waiting room with other sick patients for minor ailments. By receiving an immediate telemedicine consultation and treatment, kids won’t miss additional days of school, parents won’t have to call out from work and worry about additional lost wages, and most importantly, sick or injured children can start getting better sooner.

Save Money

The cost of a Virtual Pediatrics consultation is less than many walk-in clinic fees and insurance co-pays, especially those expensive ER copays parents often pay after hours, when their doctor’s office is closed.

What and Where Do Virtual Pediatrics Providers Treat?

Virtual Pediatrics can treat your child anywhere – home, daycare, or on vacation. This month, Virtual Pediatrics will launch in 10 states (Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia). Each month, additional states will be added until Virtual Pediatrics providers are able to care for children in all 50 states. Illnesses or ailments that can be treated through online consultations include, but are not limited to:

Abrasions, Allergies, Bites & Stings, Body Aches, Bronchitis, Bruises, Burns, Colic, Cough, Croup, Dehydration, Diarrhea, Ear Ache, Fever, Flu, Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease, Headaches, Hives, Itchy Eyes, Lice, Medication Refills, Minor Head Injuries, Nasal Congestion, Nausea, Pink Eye, Rashes, Reflux, Respiratory Infections, Seasonal Allergies, Sinus Infections, Skin Infections, Sore Throat, Sprains & Strains, Travel Medications, Urinary Tract Infections (Only for Older Kids), Vomiting

How Does It Work?

Parents can go to www.virtualpediatrics.com and click “start visit”, after which they will be directed to the registration page of our partner company, MeMD. Once the secure patient account is created, parents complete a brief medical history form for their child and submit payment, at which point they are directed to a patient care coordinator who will arrange the consultation between patient and healthcare provider. Upon completion of the webcam consultation, a Virtual Pediatrics provider will provide an individual treatment plan for the child’s ailment and, if needed, e-prescribe any medication to a local pharmacy that the family selected during the registration process. After the visit is concluded, parents can login to the patient account and print their child’s medical record as well as discharge instructions for their specific condition.

Leading Edge of Pediatric Healthcare

Virtual Pediatrics is working toward becoming the national leader in pediatric telemedicine, while providing excellent medical care to children and families in need. In this era of social media and advanced video technology, the practice of medicine is constantly evolving, and Virtual Pediatrics is at the frontier of this rapidly developing area of pediatric healthcare.

Leaky Gut Cure Through Holistic Nutrition Announced

Sufferers of leaky gut syndrome will be cheered by Karen Brimeyer’s announcement of a program called “Leaky Gut Cure” that can relieve symptoms and ease suffering from the crippling digestive track disorder. Based on healthy lifestyle recommendations, this holistic cure is based on dozens of effective ideas evolved over stringent testing and experimentation.

Nearly 2 million people have leaky gut syndrome, a poorly defined and often under-diagnosed gastro-intestinal system disorder that causes belly aches, bowel disturbance and food sensitivities. Patients often complain of abdominal cramps, bloating, flatulence and indigestion. Tired of one fad diet after another, people who have silently suffered from the condition will find this leaky gut syndrome cure the answer to a prayer.

“Obviously this system is based on extensive testing, and the author has clearly tried these methods out herself before suggesting it to others,” opined one of the early reviewers who thought the 5-point program was likely to help her. Many others who have undergone the holistic program have echoed similar sentiments.

The system called “Leaky Gut Cure” was devised by Karen Brimeyer who is a holistic nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner. It is based on a five part sequence of advice that has been shown to reverse or at least mitigate leaky gut syndrome with all her own clients. The newly packaged course takes this information out to a new audience across the world.

“The health of your gut is important in your overall health and well being” says Karen. “Leaky Gut Cure is powerful information for anyone who could be having undetected gastrointestinal disorders resembling the syndrome.”

Many effective treatments and lifestyle changes are revealed in this guide, including 3 health foods that are widely recommended and consumed by millions of people daily, but that could make the symptoms of leaky gut syndrome worse. Considering how beneficial it is to sufferers, the program is affordable and widely accessible. Victims of leaky gut can get the information without wasting hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on expensive doctor visits or costly tests to detect and monitor disease progress.

Karen Brimeyer is giving away a free report that shares three effective techniques for leaky gut cure from her website. For more information about the Leaky Gut Cure go to http://www.LeakyGutCureReview.org

Night Time Pediatrics Group That Focuses On Free Care For Medicaid Families Opens It’s Third Clinic In Dallas Metroplex

Pediamed will open in a new location in Dallas Texas. Pediamed Children’s Night Clinics provide the opportunity for Medicaid families to bring their children in for FREE acute care and not have to take time off from work. In addition, the clinics will help the state as a whole, by reducing the traffic of non-urgent visits to the emergency room.

With the growing concern of misuse of the emergency room Pediamed Pediatric Night Clinics has opened it’s 3rd location in the Dallas Metroplex area. The clinic will be located at 3535 Buckner, Suite 100, Dallas TX and will be open 6pm to 10pm 7 days a week Monday- Friday 6pm to 10pm and Sat-Sun 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Pediamed focuses on serving the Medicaid population. Most Medicaid visits are free. Medicaid families are often forced to use the emergency room for common ailments, such as coughs and colds. They are forced to visit the emergency department because of the shortage of Medicaid providers in lower income areas of Dallas. The Parent can not afford to take the time off from work so the Parent exercises the emergency room as their only Medicaid option.

“Our goals are to ensure that sick children are tended to quickly in a comfortable environment,” says Guillermo Acosta, CEO of Pedi360. “We also want parents to stop the overuse of the emergency room and save it for real emergencies.”

In North Texas, Pediamed has entered into a contractual relationship with Parkland Community Health Plan in providing acute care to their Medicaid and CHIP members, representing close to 200,000 enrolled members within Dallas County.

“We project that Pediamed will be providing care for over 70,000 patient visits per year by the end of 2014,” Don McCoy, Pedi360 COO stated. “We are confident this after hours care alternative will help reduce non-emergent visits to the hospital emergency room and lower the cost of the Texas Medicaid program.”

Aging and Genes: Nutrition is Key

Each year, millions of Americans die of preventable, often chronic disease. This happens because people believe disease is caused by things they can’t control: inherited genes or aging. Neither is true. Health experts know that about 80% of health status is determined by daily choices and gene activity, not inherited genes or age.

Most genes are active day and night. They respond to many activities, especially nutrition. Other areas play a role, including, exercise, stress, weight and inflammation. In fact, it’s normal to replace about 1 billion cells every hour, and over time, that complex process of cell division can cause mutations and errors. What’s more, those risks are markedly increased by an unhealthy lifestyle.

A new, breakthrough article called, “Telomeres Genes and Aging” explores these critical issues and includes the latest research. The article includes critical “how to” tips to prevent chronic disease and improve longevity! It’s based on more than 50 credible source links, including numerous studies and expert sources. Some key findings are:

1. Nutrition and micro-nutrient intakes (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants) are key factors for gene activation and repair, including telomere length and longevity.

2. Other lifestyle areas contribute to gene health, including weight status, sleep, stress, activity, etc., and they all contribute to gene function, replication and repair.

3. Sirtuin proteins also help to activate or silence genes, especially those for metabolism, stress response, brain function, longevity, etc. Sirtuins are also enhanced by nutrient intake and harmed by nutrient deficiencies.

There is now enough research to show how to maximize gene health and replication, including telomere length, health and longevity. By making the right choices, gene health can be maximized, including the repair of mutations and genetic errors. Humans can largely control their health and destiny today!

The End of Alzheimer’s? A revolutionary scientific advance to the cure

Interface Dynamics Control Corporation (IDCC) has completed the first phase of its decade-long Advanced Therapeutic Interventions Project, with the result that a new approach to arresting and curing Alzheimer’s disease and the other neurodegenerative diseases has been produced and verified. IDCC is now launching the Project’s second phase, which will validate the first phase findings.

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 5.1 million Americans currently affected. The direct cost of Alzheimer’s is greater than $200 billion annually, a number expected reach between $1.2 and $1.5 trillion by 2050. Indirect costs are substantial: more than 15 million caregivers delivered some 17.5 billion hours of unpaid care valued at more than $200 billion.

IDCC has discovered the mechanism of and means to control the protein misfolding, abnormal aggregation, and degradation processes associated with the degenerative and prion diseases. That mechanism is also implicated in the failure to clear toxic intracellular proteins and in the dysfunction of apoptotic (programmed cell death) pathways. It underlies the adverse functions of the neuroglia (glial cells), including microglia, which provide immune defense to the central nervous system (CNS) and maintain homeostasis and protection for neurons in the brain and the peripheral nervous system.

The process of neurodegeneration has not been understood previously, which has precluded the production of any arresting or curative procedures or drugs. The Project’s findings, however, should lead to the realization of a new class of curative procedures and pharmaceuticals which can be engaged to defeat the disease-initiating neurodegenerative insult, thereby introducing the possibility of preventing these devastating diseases. There are direct implications for the human cancers, but verification of those implications must await further experiments.

The first major activity under the Project’s second phase will be the production of a new class of active imaging system. That system will be utilized to demonstrate the activities and accessible control points of the process pathways which, when certain abnormal events occur, trigger the incipient causal mechanisms of disease. The Project is currently developing the staff and capitalization required for execution of its second phase.

Largest Temporary Renal Dialysis Unit Deployed at King’s College Hospital

A temporary renal dialysis unit at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been increased in size to maximise efficiency, enabling the treatment of a greater number of patients.

The Liberty Quad unit,which links four 13.6m medical trailers together, has been providing essential care to hundreds of patients at the Trust’s Dulwich Community Hospital site since it was installed by EMS-Healthcare in February last year.

Initially intended as a six-month temporary solution, its success has led to the contract being extended until 2015 as well as its capacity increased.

The addition of a fifth mobile medical trailerhas created an eight-bed ward,plus a dedicated recovery bay and spacious, clean utility storage as well as a large comfortable working station for nursing staff. It is the largest single unit healthcare facility to be deployed by EMS-Healthcare.

Keith Austin, CEO in EMS-Healthcare said: “We took on board the Trust’s feedback and made significant improvements to the unit to help maximise efficiency and provide a more comfortable and spacious workplace for nurses to treat their patients.

“A major benefit of the Liberty Quad Plus facility is that it can be deployed quickly and efficiently as there is no structure to build or major site preparation required. The fifth unit was simply driven onto site and all fit out changes made over a weekend to ensure minimal impact on patient service.”

The temporary renal dialysis unit provides the ultimate flexible solution to estate management and clinical teams, ensuring King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust can continue to provide high levels of life-saving care. The facility is operational six days a week delivering three sessions per day to groups of eight patients at a time.

Maine Ophthalmologists Encourage Greater Knowledge of Glaucoma Risks

“As patients enter their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s and beyond it is important for them to become aware of glaucoma risk factors that might be relevant to their individual situation,” commented Glaucoma Specialist Robert Daly, M.D. of Eyecare Medical Group in Portland.

“There is strong correlation between age and the likelihood of developing glaucoma. We know that your risk increases considerably after the age of 40. And if you are over 60 years of age-even if you have no other family or medical history that is significant-you are six times more likely to get glaucoma. A family history of glaucoma-especially among your brothers and sisters-can increase your risk to 4-9 times that of the average population,” noted Dr. Daly.

“Patients should take note of some recent research that suggests additional glaucoma risk factors may include long term use of oral contraceptive birth control pills, early natural menopause and obstructive sleep apnea,” shared Glaucoma Specialist Samuel Solish, M.D. “This is important for patients to know about. First, researchers reporting on the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), administered by the Centers for Disease Control, indicated that woman who had used birth control pills for long periods of time were twice as likely to develop glaucoma. Further, researchers reporting in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that those women who entered natural menopause at an early age were more likely to develop glaucoma. And finally, it appears that having sleep apnea exposes patients to significant risk of glaucoma. All three of these risk factors should prompt patients to seek routine eye exams with glaucoma evaluation in order to have early detection, diagnosis and treatment is necessary. In this way we are more able to help patients prevent vision loss from glaucoma,” stressed Dr. Solish.

Eyecare Medical Group is a leading ophthalmology practice in Portland, Maine staffed by a team of eye care specialists including eye doctors who are fellowship trained glaucoma specialists, retina specialists, cornea specialists and cataract and lens implant specialists-all board certified Ophthalmologists-as well as Optometrists, Opticians, technical and administrative staff who provide eye examinations for adults and children, cataract surgery and intraocular lens implants, (IOL), laser vision correction such as LASIK, diagnosis and treatment of cornea disease including cornea transplants, care for diseases of the retina including diabetes and age related macular degeneration and diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.

Want Vibrant Wellness? Free talk by Encinitas physician December 4th

Dr. Diana Hoppe, Encinitas Ob/Gyn physician, is giving a free talk at the Kaila Beauty Bar and Med Spa in Encinitas on Wednesday, December 4, 2013 from 5:30pm-7:30pm.

If living a vibrant life is on your to-do list, you’ll want to learn what this well-known physician has to say about your taking charge of maintaining good health. While we are living in a “toxic soup,” Dr. Hoppe, who is an integrative physician, believes that healthy aging is attainable.

Dr. Hoppe will talk about how to support the body’s ability to cleans toxins so cells can be nourished using positive thinking, exercise, healthy foods, and valuable supplements. Dr. Hoppe says, “It is my sincere desire to help individuals feel, live and perform their very best.”

A highly respected clinical researcher and popular public speaker, Dr. Hoppe earned her medical degree at the University of California, San Diego, where she also completed her internship and residency in Obstetrics/Gynecology.

Dr. Hoppe is a distinguished physician who has practiced integrative medicine in Encinitas since 1989. Among her many accomplishments, she wrote a book called “Healthy Sex Drive, Healthy You,” writes a weekly newsletter and blog, spoke on the Dr. Oz Show, and San Diego Living Show (www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1NCazPmriI (Preview)). She is hosting a seminar with four other doctors called “Vibrantly You” on Jan. 18, 2014. Her website is www.DrDianaHoppe.com

Dr. Hoppe will discuss the hormonal aspects of stress and toxins, and why they make us sick, tired and fat. Focusing on how to de-toxify and help the body to reach optimal health and weight, she will suggest the use of simple core supplementation to support and nourish our inner environment so the body can start to heal itself.

As a physician who is known for wanting to empower her clients to take responsibility for their wellness, after a great deal of investigation, Dr. Hoppe decided to work with the company called Orenda International. Dr. Hoppe found that Orenda is a highly ethical company, endorsed by other reputable doctors. In her research, Dr. Hoppe found that Orenda International uses a paradigm shift called “Awaken, Cleanse and Feed” that supports healthful aging.

Having offered herself as a “guinea pig” to try the new Orenda “Clean Burn Shape” program for effective weight loss, Dr. Hoppe found she could actually shed—without difficulty–17 pounds that she previously failed to get rid of no matter how many different programs she tried to adhere to and found to be unsuccessful. “It is so rewarding to be able to slender down and wear clothes that have been too small for a number of years—especially with the added benefit of having more energy!”

Dr. Hoppe says, “We have the honor of having George Hall, one of the co-founding brothers of Orenda International, join us for the evening.” Hall will share his insights about how to maintain optimal health and will be available to answer questions about the products and the company. Dr. Hoppe adds, “George is not only full of information and positivity—but he makes difficult information easy to understand using his keen sense of humor to keep us entertained while learning.”

The public is cordially invited to attend this 90 minute talk to learn how stress and toxins can impact health and the aging process. Question and answers will follow. Learn how Dr. Hoppe addresses the toxic overload we are all being subjected to, no matter how pure we try to be.

The Orenda website is available for perusal. For those interested in learning about the products or the “People Lifting People” philosophy of the Orenda International company, see “Addressing the Host” and other videos at www.ThisIsOrenda.com/DrDianaHoppe

This talk is free and the general public is welcome. Doctors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and other health professionals who are interested in helping their clients improve their health, cleans their bodies and/or lose weight are specifically invited to attend. To inquire about Dr. Hoppe’s “Vibrantly You” January seminar or RSVP for this free talk call Dr. Hoppe’s office: (760) 635-5600. The location of the Dec. 4 event, the Kaila Beauty Bar and Med Spa, is 282 N El Camino Real Suite D, Encinitas CA 92024. The phone number is (760) 944-4206.

Orenda healthy chocolate, tasty shake, and high anti-oxidant aronia berry juice will be offered to sample at the Wednesday night talk.

Minion Mayhem at Scrivens Opticians

Scrivens Opticians has teamed up with the stars of the Despicable Me 2 film, the mischievous Minions – famous for their goggle specs – to encourage parents to take their children for regular eye tests.

To celebrate the release of the hilarious animated adventure on DVD and Blu-ray (25th November), youngsters who take the Minion approved eye test at their local Scrivens branch will receive a special certificate and, if they need glasses, can choose from a range officially approved by the goggle-wearing characters.

The new campaign has been launched after figures from the Health & Social Care Information Centre* showed eye examination rates among under 15s had fallen to a 10 year low. If unchecked, poor eyesight can affect children’s education as well as their overall development, so the Minions have been enlisted to help raise awareness of the importance of regular check-ups.

Scrivens Opticians optometrist Paul Sidhu said: “We’re very excited to be working with the mischievous little Minions from Despicable Me 2, who are favourites with all the family. We want to create an adventure in store which children will remember and take away with them. Ultimately, we’re encouraging kids and parents alike to have an enjoyable experience that will inspire them to return and have regular eye checks, to help keep their eyes healthy for life.”

The initiative runs until Christmas and to encourage the whole family to look after their eyesight, any parent who brings their child for a Minion approved test will receive 50% off their own standard eye test.

By booking a Minion approved eye test customers can enter a prize draw to win a UK family adventure break** where the kids will train to be secret agents like Gru and Lucy in Despicable Me 2, or a copy of the film on 3D Blu-ray™.

Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care was established 75 years ago and remains a family run business today with 146 high street branches nationwide. For more information, visitwww.scrivensopticians.com
