CAMARILLO, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2006



"Carrots for Kids" seed growing kits are now available from Agromin, a Camarillo, Calif. manufacturer of premium soil products. The kits are designed to teach kids ages 6 through 12 how food is grown and the importance of green recycling. They can be grown indoors or out.



Each kit contains carrot seeds, a planter box with tray, plant labels, a planting instruction bookmark, a green recycling activity booklet, a pencil made of recycled wood, stickers and two, two-quart bags of planting soil. The cost of the kit is $24.95. Bulk and school program discounts are available.



The soil included with the kits contains recycled green material (i. e., lawn clippings, leaves and tree limbs) that is chopped, cleaned and naturally composted before being placed into the potting soil bags. The soil contains no animal waste or sludge. "If we don't recycle the greens from our backyards, schools and businesses, our landfills will become overloaded," says Bill Camarillo, president of Agromin. "Also, by tending to their carrots, kids will gain an understanding of how vegetables are grown. They'll have a better idea of the amount of care that goes into growing the fresh produce they see at the store. Growing vegetables from seeds is also a fun parent-child project."



For more information or to order a kit, call Agromin at 1-800-247-6646 or visit www. agromin. com.



About Agromin: 



Agromin manufactures premium soil products for the agriculture and horticulture trades and for consumer use. For more than 30 years, Agromin has provided quality soil amendments and products to some of California's largest vegetable, citrus, avocado and strawberry growers. Each month, Agromin receives and processes thousands of tons of urban wood and green waste. Agromin then uses a safe, organic and scientific system to formulate its soil products from the processed recycled green waste. The result is more vigorous and healthier plants and gardens, and on the conservation side, more room in landfills and less greenhouse gas emissions.

ItÂ’s Not All in Your Head: Researchers Conduct First Large Study Defining Premature Ejaculation by Stopwatch & Patient Reported Outcomes

ItÂ’s Not All in Your Head: Researchers Conduct First Large Study Defining Premature Ejaculation by Stopwatch & Patient Reported Outcomes



In a four-week study of 1,587 men, researchers report that men who suffer from premature ejaculation (PE) had an average intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) of 1.8 minutes, compared to 7.3 minutes in men who did not. Men with PE and their female partners also had higher ratings for personal distress, interpersonal difficulty with their partner, lack of ejaculation control, and dissatisfaction with sexual intercourse.



(PRWEB) April 16, 2005



In a four-week study of 1,587 men, researchers report that men who suffer from premature ejaculation (PE) had an average intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) of 1.8 minutes, compared to 7.3 minutes in men who did not. Men with PE and their female partners also had higher ratings for personal distress, interpersonal difficulty with their partner, lack of ejaculation control, and dissatisfaction with sexual intercourse.



This scientific study, appearing in the May issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, is the first large epidemiologic study to define patient populations of those with (207) and without (1380) premature ejaculation by measuring average times to ejaculation with stopwatches. This average, or IELT, is defined as the time between the start of vaginal intromission and the start of intravaginal ejaculation.



This study is also one of the first data sets to address the concerns of female partners. Both members of the couples studied were asked to report on a variety of subjective factors. Significant overlap in IELT was observed between the groups who suffered from PE and those without. Thus, the study data suggest IELT may not be sufficient to diagnose PE, and that subjective factors, like lack of control, may also be valid indicators.



“Most people think uni-dimensionally about PE in terms of considering it a disorder of time,” statesStanley E. Althof, Ph. D., corresponding author of the study. “This article demonstrates that subjective factors like sense of control, distress, and sexual satisfaction need to be considered when treating this highly prevalent disorder.”



PE is the most common male sexual dysfunction affecting men and their partners. However, available data suggest that only 1-12% of males self-reporting receive treatment for their dysfunction. According to The Journal of Sexual Medicine editor Irwin Goldstein, most physicians do not inquire about the existence of premature ejaculation when the patient has other sexual complaints or when the partner has orgasmic dysfunction. As seen in this study, premature ejaculation adversely affects sexual satisfaction, and partner distress is a common motivation for afflicted men to seek treatment.

D. is Professor of Psychology in the Department of Urology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine inCleveland, Ohio and President of the International Society for the Study of WomenÂ’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH).

Group Health Insurance Too Expensive? Prepaid Medical Plans are Healthy Alternative to Insurance for Employee Health Care

Group Health Insurance Too Expensive? Prepaid Medical Plans are Healthy Alternative to Insurance for Employee Health Care



Pre Paid Medical Plans are a totally new concept to provide Basic Primary Health Care to employees. The plan is NOT a discount program or Insurance, but a contract with providers to provide Basic care in a clinical office at no cost to the employee for routine visits.



Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 8, 2006



Employee Health Insurance is no longer affordable for many Employers. According to recent reports by the Kaiser Foundation, the cost for employee coverage is now three to four thousand dollars annually. 40% of employers simply cannot afford that expense and do not offer health insurance. Others are forced to drop current insurance plans, increasing the number of employees without any coverage. Prepaid Medical Plans, offered by MDplans is an affordable solution for many employers to provide basic routine healthcare services for their employees.



The Prepaid Medical Plan concept is basic and simple. The employer pays a small monthly fee for its employees that do not have health insurance. The employee has the ability to go to a preselected medical provider's office for routine care of an minor injury or illness. The employee does not pay a copay or fee for the office visit and basic routine procedures. Prepaid Medical Plans permit employers to contract with providers directly for basic clinical care. Providers are paid in advance eliminating billing and claims issues. MDplans provides the administrative services to implement the program.



Research of insurance claims data from a cross section of several employers indicate that almost all medical care that employees receive is exclusively from the medical provider in a clinical setting. Prepaid Medical Plans offers coverage for this basic need at a very small fraction of the cost of insurance. In most service areas the total cost per employee is only $50 monthly. MDplans also includes PPO Provider Discounts for services outside of the medical clinic. Other benefits include: Discounted pharmacy, dental, vision services and 24/7 Telephone Hotline service with Nurses and Doctors are available for consultation after hours or for general medical advice.



Preventable illnesses and medical conditions comprise approximately 80% of the burden of illness and 90% of all healthcare costs. "By offering a simple doctor's office visit to employees for routine care we can help keep workers healthy and productive. Early diagnosis of most diseases can greatly reduce or eliminate the high cost of delayed treatment." said Roberto Miranda, MD, Founder of MDplans.



MDplans is careful to point out that Prepaid Medical Plans are not insurance and are not intended to replace insurance. Prepaid Medical Plans are for those employers who can not afford traditional insurance but want to provide a basic level of healthcare for their employees. Because it is not insurance, this benefit can be provided for all employees, full time, part time, seasonal or temporary.



Insurance products such as catastrophic coverage will be available through a network of licensed insurance agents for those who desire to purchase additional coverage to supplement this plan. Employers and interested medical providers are encouraged to contact MDplans for additional information at www. mdplans. com or call Caroline England @ 512-215-4408

Twenty Five Percent Off The Cost Of Orthodontics (BRACES) For Both Childern And Adults. And That Is Just The Begining

Twenty Five Percent Off The Cost Of Orthodontics (BRACES) For Both Childern And Adults. And That Is Just The Begining.



For Only (72 cents a day) you can provide Dental, Vision, Prescription, and Chiropractic coverage for the Entire Household! Yes Everyone In The House.



(PRWEB) October 15, 2004



During the period 1996 through 2000, about 42 percent of the U. S. population received dental care at least once each year from a dentist, dental technician, dental hygienist, dental surgeon, orthodontist, endodontist or periodontist.



Among those were many adults over the age of 65 that have lost all of their teeth, primarily because of tooth decay and gum disease, which affects about 25% of U. S. adults. They have not been able to afford to have preventive dental care.



Tooth loss has more than cosmetic effects—it may contribute to nutrition and health problems by limiting the types of food that a person can eat.



For those who had a dental visit in 2000, average dental expenses totaled $480, an increase of about 28 percent over the average expense in 1996.



Compared with all other age groups, children ages 6-18 were most likely to use dental services and had the highest total annual dental expenses. In 2000, that amount averaged $607 per child.



This is not taking into account Orthodontics (braces). This alone will cost you in the thousands.



DonÂ’t take yours or your familyÂ’s dental care for granted.



With the Government trying once again to sell us on the fact that they have a plan, yes another health plan. One just needs to listen to the current Presidential Debates and we here all about it again, and again.



Healthcare cost up 64%, Prescriptions up 12%, Medicare cost up 17% according to what was said on this weeks Presidential Debates.



You would think that after all of these years of selling the public on how well these new plans are one of them would of work by now.



For years congress has deliberated over how to handle this problem and it appears that they are looking to solutions offered by new companies founded in the past decade.



Companies that let the consumers make the right choices for themselves and their family.



New companies like Ameriplan USA® http://www. nationshealthplan. com/ (http://www. nationshealthplan. com/) are offering deep discounts on Dental, Vision, Chiropractic and Prescription benefit services along with their NEW MEDICAL PROGRAM. A proven alternative that is easy to use and loaded with value.



As seen on 60 minutes American Medical Review with Morley Safer Ameriplan USA® is making a huge difference.



By negotiating with providers to provide their members with a discounted rate the costs have dropped dramatically.



For a low monthly fee, members can save up to 80% on preventative work (teeth cleaning, x-rays, etc.) and 25% - 65% on all restorative and cosmetic work (fillings, crowns, braces, etc.) performed by a general dentist. Specialist fees are discounted 25%.



Consumer Driven Health Care. This is a system that puts the Health Care relationship back into the hands of the physician and the patient, while removing or diminishing the third party. This method of accessing Health Care allows for the delivery of better care while significantly decreasing cost.



AmeriPlan USA® Satisfaction Guaranteed, and they stand strongly behind that statement.



Give Us 30 Days -- And We Will Show You The Value In These Benefits.



You don't see that with government or insurance run plans.



AmeriPlan USA® Health Care benefits are NOT insurance. They are discounted fee-for service products that provide health care service through access to a network of providers.



See this special report with Morley Safer on 60 minutes American Medical Review at the Nations Health Plan web site. http://www. nationshealthplan. com/ (http://www. nationshealthplan. com/)



AmeriPlan USA® Health Care benefits are NOT insurance. They are discounted fee-for service products that provide health care service through access to a network of providers.

Real Estate Recovery Forecast

Real Estate Recovery Forecast



A new forecast by Housing Predictor shows how real estate markets will recover as a result of actions taken by the Fed and the Obama Administration's rescue package.



Destin, FL (PRWEB) March 23, 2009



A new forecast by Housing Predictor dot com details how the housing market will recover from its all-time unprecedented fall.



The forecast shows how the Obama Administration's efforts with Congress and the Fed will drive the housing market back to good health. But analysts contend it will take years for a full recovery to occur. Housing Predictor forecasted the foreclosure epidemic and the real estate crisis as the first real estate research firm to do so more than three years ago.



Foreclosures have topped more than 4-million homes and other properties in the U. S. and are projected to top at least 7-million before the crisis fully unwinds. The after shocks of the foreclosure epidemic have sent home values in the majority of the country to lows equal to at least 2001.



Housing Predictor forecasts more than 250 local housing markets in all 50 U. S. states and updates its forecasts as market conditions demand.



An online survey by Housing Predictor found that an overwhelming majority of 85% surveyed said they have been affected by the real estate crisis in some way. The nation's deepening recession is blamed on the crisis.



As real estate markets begin approach their bottoms and the inventory of foreclosures are bought up at bargain prices the crisis will begin to wither away.

Observe National Physical Fitness and Sports Month by Protecting Kids Eyes: Tips from Clarity Defog It Antifog



During May’s National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, Defog It antifog reminds parents, coaches and trainers of the importance of safety eyewear to protect the vision of young athletes. Of the 2.5 million eye injuries that occur every year, children under 15 years of age account for nearly one-third of all hospital admissions for eye trauma and 43 percent of sports and recreational eye injuries overall. Following a few simple tips can save the vision of thousands of youth.



Valley View, Ohio (Vocus) May 10, 2010



During May’s National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, Defog It antifog (http://www. defogitworks. com/) reminds parents, coaches and trainers of the importance of safety eyewear to protect the vision of young athletes. Of the 2.5 million eye injuries that occur every year, children under 15 years of age account for nearly one-third of all hospital admissions for eye trauma and 43 percent of sports and recreational eye injuries overall. Following a few simple tips can save the vision of thousands of youth.

Choose protective eyewear that looks the part. Today there are often more fashionable choices in safety eyewear. Good looks may help children willingly wear their eyewear. Comfort is important. Eyewear that pinches the nose or straps that slip are handy excuses to put aside eyewear. Take the time to find something that really works. Make sure fogged eyewear isn’t a problem. Kids will want to take off their eyewear when athletic activity works up a sweat that causes fogging. Temperature can also play a role: the cold of a hockey rink or the July heat of a baseball diamond can cause fogging. An antifog treatment like Defog It can eliminate the problem. Do you need a strap? It will secure the eyewear during play and help keep them close by during downtime. Take the message to coaches, trainers, parents and boosters. It could be time to join the many schools and organizations that have an official recreational eye safety equipment program. Invite health providers or safety experts to explain the hazards and need. Include eye safety information at sign-ups for sports teams and day camps. Create a poster to distribute in gyms and sports facilities. “90% of youth sports' eye injuries could be prevented by protective eyewear,” says Jodi Groh, Director of Marketing for Nanofilm, maker of Defog It antifog towelettes and liquid. “Defog It antifog is offering these simple tips to help get kids to put on protective eyewear and keep it on.”



Defog It antifog urges all Americans to participate in National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, which is a program of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports (http://www. fitness. gov/resources/toolkit/index. html). There is a toolkit of resources at the website.



Defog It antifog towelettes and Defog It antifog liquid can provide all-day fog prevention on sports safety eyewear, eyeglasses, sunglasses, and other eyewear. Tested safe for all optics, the formula is used by the military around the world. Buy Defog It towelettes and liquid or find more information at www. defogitworks. com] and 1-888-ENDS-FOG.

Healthcare Professionals Train on the Front Lines of Trauma as War Spreads in the Middle East

Healthcare Professionals Train on the Front Lines of Trauma as War Spreads in the Middle East



Dr. James Gordon, founder and director of The Center For Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM) and former chair of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Policy, led the Healing the Wounds of War (HWW)team to Israel as the conflict escalated in Gaza and erupted in the North of Israel and Lebanon. Their mission: to continue training health and mental health professionals to heal psychological trauma on a population-wide level, using psychological self-care, mind-body medicine and group support. The challenge: to train these physicians, psychologists and educators in the midst of conflict and to work jointly with Israelis and Palestinians.



Jerusalem (PRWEB) August 25, 2006



CMBM’s HWW team arrived in Israel on July 9th, delighted to rejoin the Israeli Leadership team and to work with them to train 130 mental health, health and education professionals, in the use of Mind-Body approaches to heal psychological trauma and reduce stress. For the first time they would work with a mixed group of Israelis and Palestinians -- and at a time when the escalating conflict in Gaza was likely to inflame passions and provoke confrontation.



As science, including CMBM’s own research continues to support the effectiveness of Mind-Body Medicine and holism moves into mainstream medical practice, more healthcare practitioners seek to integrate Mind-Body techniques into their work. In the CMBM training Israeli and Palestinian participants practiced using meditation, guided imagery, written exercises, yoga, movement and drawings to help them deal with the trauma and tension of the ongoing conflict with their fears of one another as well as with challenges at work and in their personal lives.



James S. Gordon, M. D., CMBM’s Founder and Director, and a leading expert in Mind-Body Medicine, anticipated his trainees and the Leadership Team’s apprehension at participating in mixed groups. He was, however, delighted not only with the way they learned and used these techniques but by how the training enhanced mutual understanding and compassion—qualities in short supply in the last two months in the Middle East.



The HWW team also presented an introductory day long workshop in the West Bank for 90 Palestinians and laid the ground work for continuing its highly successful effort in Gaza where 90 trainees are implementing, under the guidance of a Palestinian Leadership Team, the CMBM approach in virtually every major government and non government mental health organization.



In the months ahead, CMBM plans to extend its program into the devastated Northern region of Israel, to offer additional large scale trainings in Gaza and to develop significant joint Israeli-Palestinian program -- “training thousands to heal millions.”



The Center for Mind-Body Medicine is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to reviving the spirit and transforming the practice of medicine. The Center is working to create a more effective, comprehensive, and compassionate model of healthcare and health education. The Center’s model combines the precision of modern science with the wisdom of the world’s healing traditions, to help health professionals heal themselves, their patients, and their communities.

Medical Solutions Ranks Among America's Fastest-Growing Private Staffing Firms

Medical Solutions Ranks Among America's Fastest-Growing Private Staffing Firms



Traveling healthcare staffing company Medical Solutions, Inc. announces its inclusion in the Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc. list of the fastest-growing private staffing companies in the country. As the 10th fastest growing company on the list, Medical Solutions ranks 3rd out of all healthcare staffing firms making the list.



Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 30, 2008



Traveling healthcare staffing company Medical Solutions, Inc. (http://www. medicalsolutions. com) is proud to announce its inclusion in the Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc. list of the fastest-growing private staffing companies in the country. As the 10th fastest growing company on the list, Medical Solutions ranked 3rd out of all healthcare staffing firms making the list.



"Being recognized on the Staffing Industry Analysts list of the fastest-growing companies in the country is an honor we're extremely excited about. Our success validates the quality of our employees, management philosophies, focus on information technology and sound strategic business practices," said Medical Solutions president and co-owner Scott Anderson.



Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc. has published the fastest-growing private firms list annually for the last 4 years in addition to being recognized as the authority on research and analysis of the staffing industry.



Medical Solutions specializes in placing nurses and allied health professionals in temporary travel nursing jobs nationwide. Beginning in 1997, Medical Solutions has become one of the fastest growing companies in the travel nursing industry. Today 106 internal employees work at Medical Solutions' headquarters in Omaha, NE. Medical Solutions currently provides travelers to nearly 900 client hospitals nationwide.



Medical Solutions has seen a growth in revenue from $18 million in 2006 to $30 million in 2007 and are projecting revenue of nearly $50 million for 2008. Solid strategies and the increasing nursing shortage (http://www. medicalsolutions. com/resources/info/nursing-shortage. shtml) have driven their business.



Medical Solutions attributes their rapid growth to several factors. In addition to being one of the first travel nursing companies to be Joint Commission certified, their flexible pay and billing structures allow nurses and allied health professionals to personalize their compensation packages. Medical Solutions also broke the industry standard by providing travelers with a dedicated Recruiter for their entire career with them. Conversely, they also became one of the first companies to provide their client hospitals with a dedicated Client Manager. These innovations, combined with an unwavering commitment to providing excellent customer service have led to Medical Solutions' success.



Medical Solutions has a clear goal of becoming one of the largest traveling healthcare staffing firms in the country. Towards this end, Medical Solutions has made significant investments in technology, marketing and internal staff and has begun building allied health and international divisions.



The company believes that when employees are treated well, financial success will follow. For Medical Solutions, treating employees well means putting them in the best position to succeed. With monthly outings held during business hours where employees can celebrate achievements, a break room which hosts foosball and pinball tournaments and a full-time concierge to handle personal affairs for the employees, Medical Solutions truly values its staff and their efforts. Fostering this empowering and appreciative environment has been instrumental to their growth and resulted in being named the winner of the 2008 Best Places to Work in Omaha among companies their size by The Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.



In addition to traditional marketing tactics, the company's Marketing group has embraced cutting-edge strategies in an effort to create brand awareness for Medical Solutions as well as travel nursing. One such campaign is Restless Nurse Syndrome, which is a viral "mockumentary" series created and produced entirely by company employees to create awareness about travel nursing. The company's blog at TravelNursingBlogs. com (http://www. travelnursingblogs. com/) is another marketing tool that provides a wealth of information about travel nursing as well as offering tips and advice for those already in the field. In addition to these initiatives, building an unparalleled customer experience is a major focus of this team.



Medical Solutions continues to devote significant resources to their information technology infrastructure. Continuous investment in technology will enable the company to be a leader in the travel healthcare staffing field and allow for future growth.



With the recent launch of their Allied Health Division in November 2007, the company provides a higher level of expertise in the allied health field. Coupled with a lesser publicized allied health professionals shortage, Medical Solutions is poised to fill most of their hospital's staffing needs in this area and continue their strong growth. In the first eight months since the launch of this new line of business, the Allied Health Division has grown to 11% of the company's overall sales. "Our mission is to be the largest provider of traveling healthcare staff for each of our clients. With nearly 900 hospital clients to cross-sell our Allied services, we anticipate the same kind of rapid growth we've achieved within the Nursing Division" said Anderson.



About Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc.

Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc. is the premier research and analysis firm covering the contingent workforce. Known for its independent and objective insights, the company's proprietary research, data, support tools, publications, and executive conferences provide a competitive edge to decision-makers who supply and buy temporary staffing. In addition to temporary staffing, Staffing Industry Analysts also covers these related staffing service sectors: third-party placement, outplacement, and staff leasing (PEOs). Founded in 1989, the company is headquartered in Los Altos, California. For more information, visit StaffingIndustry. com (http://www. staffingindustry. com).



About Medical Solutions, Inc.

Its focus is on meeting the urgent and short-term staffing needs of its clients with highly skilled allied health professionals, nurses and technologists. A nationwide network of travelers allows Medical Solutions to help its client hospitals continue to provide excellent patient care amidst a nursing and allied health shortage. Medical Solutions provides travelers to nearly 900 client hospitals nationwide and is one of the fastest growing companies in the travel nursing and allied health industry.

Mountain High Yoghurt Reveals Powerful Exercise Recovery Food

Mountain High Yoghurt Reveals Powerful Exercise Recovery Food



U. S. consumers spend nearly $2 billion each year on sport drinks promoted as recovery aids for athletes, but while such products help with rehydration and electrolyte replacement, very few contain the protein necessary for muscle repair. Mountain High Yoghurt reveals why a food athletes may already have in their refrigerators, all natural yoghurt, is one of the most balanced and effective but often-overlooked food to help them recover from exertion quickly and more completely.



Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 23, 2009



The latest nutrition science indicates that what athletes consume after exercise can affect their physical recovery from exertion and even their next workout. Adequate rehydration and certain nutrients consumed in the right proportions is key to optimal recovery (http://www. mountainhighyoghurt. com/html/exercise_recovery. htm). According to the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (2008, December 29), adding protein to rehydration efforts can improve an athlete's recovery for better future performance. "High-quality all natural yoghurt is a powerful recovery food for athletes because it contains potassium, carbohydrates, and protein," says Ursula Webhofer, marketing manager for Mountain High Yoghurt. "It's also easy to mix with other recovery foods like fruit, nuts, and juices, making it a great nutritional aid for athletes."



Without adequate recovery nutrition, athletes can experience not only muscle fatigue and cramping, but also diminished performance the next time they exercise. Nutrients that are key to post-exercise recovery are:

potassium carbohydrates protein



Yoghurt Is a Good Source of Potassium to Help Balance Electrolytes

After exercise, it is crucial to rehydrate with water and replenish sodium lost through sweating, so sodium-enriched sports drinks or water consumed with salty foods such as pretzels, nuts, and crackers are other good choices. Sodium helps the body retain fluids to achieve rehydration from water.



It's also important to replenish potassium lost through sweating. Potassium works in tandem with sodium to maintain the body's electrolyte balance. Fruit juices that are good sources of potassium--such as orange, prune, and grapefruit--can be consumed to rehydrate and add potassium.



All natural yoghurt is another good potassium source. Every 8-ounce serving of Mountain High Yoghurt, for example, contains at least 13% of the recommended Daily Value for potassium. "Try a smoothie (http://www. mountainhighyoghurt. com/recipes/smoothies_drinks. htm) made with Mountain High Yoghurt and potassium-rich papaya, cantaloupe, watermelon, oranges, kiwi fruit, bananas, or berries," Webhofer suggests. "Simply add fresh fruit pieces to one cup of Mountain High Yoghurt and blend in a blender. Add crushed ice to help further rehydration." Equal parts yoghurt and orange, prune, or grapefruit juice blended together is another great recovery drink.



Adding Fruit or Grains to Yoghurt Helps Athletes "Carb Up" for Next Workout

Energy is stored in muscles in the form of glycogen, which gets depleted during intense workouts. To replenish them, experts recommend consuming snacks with a moderate to high "glycemic index" immediately after a workout. The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how fast a food causes glucose levels or "blood sugar" to rise. Moderate - to high-GI foods from natural sources include whole grains (brown rice, graham crackers, whole wheat bread or crackers), fruit, and whole-grain cereal bars. Only yoghurts that are naturally sweetened with crystalline fructose, such as Mountain High, are low-glycemic, but they go well with high-glycemic carbohydrate sources. "For a quick and healthy recovery snack, stir whole-grain granola, fresh fruit pieces, or crushed graham cracker pieces into a cup of Vanilla or fruit-flavored Mountain High Yoghurt," Webhofer says.



Yoghurt Contains Protein to Rebuild Muscles

Last, it's important to consume protein after exercise, to help build and repair muscle tissue. Every 8-ounce serving of Original Style (http://www. mountainhighyoghurt. com/html/original_style. htm), Lowfat (http://www. mountainhighyoghurt. com/html/lowfat. htm), or Fat Free (http://www. mountainhighyoghurt. com/html/fat_free. htm) Mountain High Yoghurt contains at least 10 grams of protein, or 20% of the daily recommended value, making them good choices for protein replenishment.



Additionally, protein consumed with carbohydrates is best for muscle repair. Some studies suggest that a 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein consumed after exercise can help repair muscle tissue and replenish muscle glycogen more quickly. Mountain High Yoghurt varieties that provide carbohydrates and proteins in this ratio are:



Original Style Vanilla and Strawberry Lowfat Vanilla, Strawberry, Lemon, and Raspberry Fat Free Vanilla



These Mountain High varieties also provide at least 500 mg of potassium, or at least 14% of the recommended Daily Value for adults, in each serving.



Easy Foods Make a Difference

Easy-to-digest and rehydrating foods help athletes optimize post-exercise nutrition. Fruit smoothies made with Mountain High Yoghurt--or fruits, nuts, and other ingredients stirred into a cup of Mountain High--are great examples. More snack and smoothie ideas are available on Mountain High's Exercise Recovery (http://www. mountainhighyoghurt. com/html/exercise_recovery. htm) web page at www. MountainHighYoghurt. com.



Mountain High is a premium-quality yoghurt because it uses only all natural ingredients, including rbST-free milk. Its Vanilla and fruit varieties are sweetened only with natural crystalline fructose and its fruit flavors are derived from premium fresh fruits. Every serving of Mountain High contains billions of live, active, and probiotic cultures (http://www. mountainhighyoghurt. com/html/nutrition. htm#probiotics) L. acidophilus, B. bifidus, and L. casei.

Genesis Fertility Centre Applauds New Recommendations for Elective Single Embryo Transfer Following In Vitro Fertilization

Genesis Fertility Centre Applauds New Recommendations for Elective Single Embryo Transfer Following In Vitro Fertilization



Genesis Fertility Centre (www. genesis-fertility. com) has been at the forefront of a reproductive procedure called elective single embryo transfer (eSET), a version of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) that involves transferring just one fertilized egg, rather than the two or more usually transferred. This procedure significantly reduces the risk of twins while offering acceptable birth rates for women under 35 who have a good prognosis to conceive.



Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) April 19, 2010



While the explosion of celebrity moms giving birth to twins suggests that having multiples is the new normal, most women don't realize the serious risks associated with twin pregnancies, according to fertility specialist, Dr Jason Hitkari.



Genesis Fertility Centre (www. genesis-fertility. com) has been at the forefront of a reproductive procedure called elective single embryo transfer (eSET), a version of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) that involves transferring just one fertilized egg, rather than the two or more usually transferred.



According to the new guidelines, jointly released by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada(SOGC) and the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS), this procedure significantly reduces the risk of twins while offering acceptable birth rates for women under 35 who have a good prognosis to conceive.



Genesis has been offering this group of women the option of eSET since 2006. "To date, our clinic has performed the most eSETs of any clinic in Canada," says Dr Hitkari. "With a 68-per-cent pregnancy rate for women under 35, we feel confident that we can provide women with an excellent chance of getting pregnant without the higher risk of miscarriage or health problems associated with multiple pregnancy."



Studies have shown that for multiples, even twins, there is a higher risk of premature birth, cerebral palsy, respiratory diseases, blindness, deafness and death as compared to singleton pregnancies.



Along with providing health benefits to mother and baby, the new SOGC guidelines stress the cost benefit of eSET for the health care system and recommend that IVF should be publicly funded to encourage the most women to undergo this procedure.



Dr Hitkari is optimistic that the use of eSET will grow as fertility clinics across the country adopt these guidelines and encourage women under the age of 35 to opt for the safest procedure. "We are excited that the pregnancy rates we are seeing at Genesis with eSET are as good or better than transferring multiple embryos. Now we just need to get public funding for fertility treatments like IVF."



Since opening its doors in 1995, Genesis has grown to be one of the largest IVF clinics in Canada offering a comprehensive range of assisted reproductive technologies, including IUI, IVF, ICSI, PGD, surgical sperm retrieval, cryopreservation, oocyte and sperm donation.

Ambient Devices and E Ink Join Forces on Weather Device

Ambient Devices and E Ink Join Forces on Weather Device



Two innovative MIT offshoots have joined forces to make a simple household device that reliably forecasts the local weather. Ambient Devices and E Ink today announced the Weather Wizard, which uses electronic paper to continuously display 5-day weather forecasts, broadcast in real time over Ambient’s nationwide wireless network.



Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) January 6, 2006



Two innovative MIT offshoots have joined forces to make a simple household device that reliably forecasts the local weather. Ambient Devices and E Ink today announced the Weather Wizard, which uses electronic paper to continuously display 5-day weather forecasts, broadcast in real time over Ambient’s nationwide wireless network.



The Weather Wizard is the size of a postcard and can easily stand on a dresser or hang on a refrigerator door. The customer simply enters a zip code and the product then shows the latest local weather forecast at all times. By combining Ambient’s energy-efficient wireless technology with E Ink’s low-power display technology, the Weather Wizard can operate continuously for two years on just two AAA batteries, so it is always accurate and does not require any cords or cables. 



“As consumer products have become increasingly complex, the Weather Wizard signals a shift to simplicity,” says David Rose, Ambient’s president, “The E Ink displays are perfect for any low-power application and moreover they are beautiful. The contrast is like paper from any viewing angle and the image is crisp and clear.”



Russ Wilcox, E Ink president said “We are delighted to support Ambient because their network coverage is ubiquitous, and they continuously broadcast weather, stock, traffic, and other real-time information that people care about. With a reliable wireless technology that runs on a small battery, they can add intelligence to common objects in a magical way.”



Ambient’s nationwide wireless network and low-cost chipset technology provides the leading solution for embedding online information in weather stations, clock radios, car dashboards – and now pieces of paper. Compared to Microsoft’s MSN Direct technology, Ambient’s network coverage is broader, at a lower cost and 120 times longer battery life.



E Ink segmented display cell for the Weather Wizard is based on its novel electronic ink technology that uses 99% less energy than a liquid crystal display of the same size. Electronic ink works by using electricity to rearrange black and white particles similar to bits of ink and paper and it achieves the same clarity as printed text. The cell is made of flexible plastic, so it is paper-thin and lightweight.



About Ambient



Ambient’s mission is to make online information as easy to check as the time. Ambient is the pioneer and leader in delivering useful and timely online information through glanceable devices supported by its low-cost wireless bit-trickling applications.



Founded in 2001 out of MIT’s Media Lab and headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Ambient Devices has already achieved profitability, having sold over x,000 units. In 2003, the company launched the best-selling Ambient Orb, named in the NY Times Magazines "Year in Ideas." Ambient's vision is to embed information in everyday objects, making the physical environment an interface to digital information. Colors glow to indicate energy pricing, analog meters reflect the movement of the stock market, post-it-notes show you commute congestion, and on rainy days your umbrella lights up so you know to take it with you. The Ambient Information Network powers embedded wireless applications for companies in consumer electronics, transportation, energy, health and wellness, and whitegoods.

Land O'Lakes Introduces American Deli Cheese Product Made with 2% Milk

Land O'Lakes Introduces American Deli Cheese Product Made with 2% Milk



25% less fat, yet same great taste as regular American.



St. Paul, MN (Vocus) August 28, 2009



Land O'Lakes now offers a delicious option to help support a healthy lifestyle by introducing an American deli cheese with 25% less fat than its regular American deli cheese -- LAND O LAKES® 2% Milk American Deli Cheese Product.



Company officials said they developed the product in response to the consumer trend toward healthier living. "We strive to offer a product that has both great taste and is better for you," said Land O'Lakes Deli Brand Manager Erin Gislason. "It's a delicate balance to manage, but LAND O LAKES® 2% American Deli Cheese Product really does deliver on both."



Consumers say they expect healthy products to be available in the Service Deli, yet they are not willing to sacrifice taste. According to the NPD Group, the consumption of healthy cheese is driving overall cheese consumption growth, and 2% Milk drives the majority of fluid milk consumption. That is why LAND O LAKES® 2% Milk American Deli Cheese Product is the perfect balance between taste and living a healthier lifestyle.



LAND O LAKES® 2% Milk American Deli Cheese Product can be found behind the deli counter in your local grocery store or deli. The package is distinguished by its broad blue band stretching across the width of the loaf and calling out the feature making it delicious -- "2% milk." Retailers receive the product in 5-lb. blocks, which deli operators can then slice fresh to order, similar to other cheese found in the service deli.



LAND O LAKES® 2% Milk American Deli Cheese Product is available in the Eastern United States, and is manufactured at the company's plant in Spencer, Wisconsin.



Land O'Lakes is the only service deli cheese manufacturer featuring an American cheese product made with 2% milk. This latest offering is part of a company effort to introduce innovation and healthy living to the deli category.

Recently Launched TruKid™ Reveals New Line of Mineral Based Sunscreen

Recently Launched TruKid™ Reveals New Line of Mineral Based Sunscreen



What to wear this winter – sunscreen.



Oakland, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2007



Recently launched Bay Area-based TruKid is excited to offer a mineral based, Paraben and SLS free sunscreen line for kids. Whether you’re hitting the ski slopes, making a snowman or just layered for a cold day of play don’t forget the final layer this winter season – sunscreen.



Don’t be fooled by cooler temperatures, children are exposed to the sun even when wearing layers on a cloudy day. The American Cancer Society recommends wearing sunscreen no matter what the season is because it’s not the temperature that matters but the ultraviolet rays, which are more intense when the sun is high in the sky. Use a minimum SPF 15 that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.



As a mother of six and product manufacturer, TruKid Founder Jennifer Adams Bunkers delivers her Healthy Habits line to parents looking for natural solutions that will help teach their kids proper hygiene and skin care. “By taking care of our kids at the youngest age, we are teaching them how to take care of themselves as they grow,” Ms. Bunkers says. “We created silly songs to reinforce cleanliness and checklist sheets that reinforce the message,” she adds. All of TruKid’s products are free of harmful chemicals like Parabens and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS).



TruKid’s sunscreen line includes Sunny Days SPF 15 and 30+ as well as an SPF 30+ lip balm and SPF 30+ water resistant face stick (which fits nicely into a pocket).



TruKid is safe for all ages – babies to big kids. Our head-to-toe skincare line includes: the Happy Face and Body Lotion, Friendly Face Wash, Bubbly Body Bar, and Hero Stick (an all-natural healing salve for skinned knees or scraped elbows). Prices range from $9 -$16 per 3.5-4 ounce bottle. All orders come with a free Silly Songs for Healthy Habits CD until December 31, 2007.



Look for the “TruKid Smart Label™” seal of approval. The label ensures parents that the ingredients are natural, non-toxic and free of potentially harmful ingredients like Parabens and SLS. The Company made a pledge with the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, whose goal is to protect consumers and workers by requiring the health & beauty industries to phase out chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and other health issues, and replace them with safer alternatives.



TruKid products are available online at www. TruKid. com].

Fucoidan and Limu: Lab Analysis Finds 2800% More Fucoidan in Original Limu™

Fucoidan and Limu: Lab Analysis Finds 2800% More Fucoidan in Original Limu™



An independent lab analysis at www. limu-analysis. com has found that Original Limu contains 2800% more fucoidan than the leading imitation brand. Fucoidan is a life-changing nutrient cited in almost 600 scientific studies that is believed to produce the amazing results reported by thousands of consumers using Original Limu.



(PRWEB) July 23, 2004



In summer of 2003 the The Limu Company secured the worldwide exclusive rights to a proprietary fucoidan-rich Limu (brown seaweed) extract and began making a product called Original Limu. Just so you understand the significance of this, fucoidan is cited in almost 600 research studies and the world scientific community's interest level in fucoidan is intense. The potential health implications of many of these studies are astounding... you can see them at www. PubMed. gov (type "fucoidan" in the search box).



Original Limu became an instant hit due to widespread reports from consumers about a variety of amazing results. Shortly afterwards, a company called Vitacorp brought out a look-alike product called Limu Plus. Vitacorp distributors then attempted to lure away innocent consumers looking for Original Limu online by giving them the impression that Limu Plus was simply an improved version of Original Limu that contained the same fucoidan-rich Limu extract.



The president of The Limu Company, Gary Raser, finally got tired of the deceptive marketing tactics and ordered an independent lab analysis of the two products. The results will shock consumers: the analysis found that Original Limu had 2800% more fucoidan in it than Limu Plus! You can see the report for yourself at www. limu-analysis. com... as the website says, it's scandalous!

Quality of Life has Become a Salient Issue for All Parties Involved in the Health Care Process: Quality of Life in Mental Disorders, 2nd Edition

Quality of Life has Become a Salient Issue for All Parties Involved in the Health Care Process: Quality of Life in Mental Disorders, 2nd Edition



Research and Markets (researchandmarkets. com/reports/c24454) has announced the addition of Quality of Life in Mental Disorders, 2nd Edition to their offering.



Dublin (PRWEB) September 21, 2005



Research and Markets (http://www. researchandmarkets. com/reports/c24454 (http://www. researchandmarkets. com/reports/c24454)) has announced the addition of Quality of Life in Mental Disorders, 2nd Edition to their offering.



The concept of quality of life has come into the forefront in medicine over the last twenty years. Psychiatry, though, has lagged behind in this development and the first edition of the book (proposed here for a second edition) published in 1997, was a landmark in the development of the issue, summarizing previous developments and research in the field.



Quality of life has become a salient issue for all parties involved in the health care process, i. e. patients, family members, professionals of all kind, politicians, administrators and industry. The concept of quality of life has a strong unifying power in a field which tends to disintegrate. Since the publication of the first edition 1997 numerous contributions to the topic have appeared in the scientific literature these will be incorporated into the book, thus providing a thorough state of the art overview of this important public health topic.



The importance of a patients quality of life is increasingly being recognised in all areas of medicine and health sciences. Many patients suffering from mental disorders will require long-term management which means that quality of life becomes an even more important consideration. The second edition of this landmark title has been extensively revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field. Provides a state of the art overview of this important public health topic. Authored by well-known experts in their field Incorporates new material on the latest quality of life instruments, quality of life in addiction and the design of drug trials.



The Cochrane Collaboration have a QoL methods group. Perhaps we can form some kind of link or association. The first edition was translated into Japanese, Spanish and Italian. We have interest in Polish and Egyptian editions as well pending a new edition. Five years after publication, the first edition continues to sell, albeit in small quantities. This is a good indication of the continued/increasing demand for material synthesizing the growing body of primary literature.

In its 13th year of recognizing companies with the MVP Quality Awards, Customer Interaction Solutions selected Phoenix-based Synergy Solutions, Inc. as the recipient of its MVP Silver Award.

Health & Fitness Expert Debbie Siebers Debuts Bestselling Cookbooks at Her Official Web Site

Health & Fitness Expert Debbie Siebers Debuts Bestselling Cookbooks at Her Official Web Site



After a successful launch of her fashion collections, Debbie Siebers extends the brand to include both of her bestselling books, “Nutritional Makeover” & “Energy Boost”.



Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 3, 2005



Debbie Siebers, the health and fitness industry’s leading lady, today announced the addition of her bestselling cookbooks, “Nutritional Makeover” and “Energy Boost” to the product offerings at her official website, www. DebbieSiebers. com.



In “Nutritional Makeover” Siebers teaches her readers the importance of discovering the right balance of healthy eating, nutrient intake, and exercise. Unlike traditional health-conscious cookbooks that feature bland and flavorless recipes, this book exhibits delicious entries, such as vegetable tempura, spicy beef & avocado stir-fry, and fresh plum dumplings which are guaranteed to impress at any dinner party.



“I know how hard it can be to want to lose weight and still cook delicious foods,” Siebers symphonizes. “With this book, you’ll find great healthy recipes, nutritional information, eating plans, and more.”



With “Energy Boost” Siebers shows her readers that by eating nutritionally balanced meals, they will find that their energy and motivation levels will skyrocket. Additionally, Siebers demonstrates how the proper intact of vitamins & minerals benefits her readers’ beauty concerns.



“The basic elements of beauty—blemish-free skin, strong nails, and healthy hair—are all affected by your diet,” Siebers explains. The recipes included in this book, while decadent & scrumptious, are consistently mindful of readers’ concerns about carbohydrates, fat, and calories. Some of the mouth-watering entries in the book include: a kiwi-grapefruit drink with mint, gnocchi with oyster mushrooms, and spicy chicken with fresh mango sauce.



While many readers will relate to satisfying the all-too-familiar hunger cravings most dieters experience with a chocolate bar or a bag of chips, “Energy Boost” offers easy to prepare recipes to avoid that trap.



“These books are a wonderful companion to any type of workout program,” Siebers summarizes.



Both “Nutritional Makeover” & “Energy Boost” are published by Silverback Books and are sold through Siebers’ official website, www. DebbieSiebers. com, at the easy to swallow price of $19.95.



For over twenty years, Siebers has inspired people to achieve physical fitness through her associations with Body-By-Jake, BeachBody, and Slim in 6. During the previous season of FOX Television’s hit reality show, “The Swan,” she starred as its health & fitness expert.
