Karen and her Quantum Life Team will be hosting a Quantum Consciousness conference November 6th-8th, 2015 in Sedona, AZ. This conference “will empower you to fine tune your health and wellness because we are in a constant state of aligning and tuning.”

Are Doctors’ Office Waiting Rooms a Thing of the Past?

NutreaLife offers the future of health benefits now with the debut of its new

tele-health, wellness and discount benefits plans with an “app” for easy access.

 

ROCKVILLE, MD…  NutreaLife, a health products and services company, announced the debut of its new tele-health benefit and discount plans designed to empower patients with unprecedented access, affordability and control over their own healthcare choices. Integrating MDLive medical service portals powered by “Healthiest You,” a Web-based host of tele-health services, NutreaLife now offers some of the most comprehensive discounts and benefits available, at the lowest prices in the market today.

“Our goal is to streamline the way patients receive and manage their healthcare and, at the same time, make high-quality care affordable,” said NutreaLife CEO, Edward Joseph Eyring, M.D. “We took care to examine the big picture of healthcare from a holistic point of view. We vetted a number of tele-health providers to ensure our members would receive the best services available. We are thrilled about working with Healthiest You.”

With a number of tele-health providers entering the market, Healthiest You is unique in that it provides one of the least expensive monthly tele-health plans to allow unlimited online or phone consultations with a Board-certified US physician, any time, day or night, at no extra charge.

It is also one of the only tele-health services to allow members to select a local physician of their choice. Members can search for, review and select physicians in their states with free online access to the Healthiest You database, which is updated in real-time daily. Insured members can also filter searches to include only authorized providers so they can remain “in-network.” These features are especially advantageous when an in-person follow-up with a tele-health doctor is necessary.

The database also enables members to search pharmacies in their area to find the lowest prices on their prescriptions. Additionally, searches for the best prices on laboratory tests, radiology exams and medical procedures produce results relevant to both insured and uninsured members.

Secure online medical record storage is another unique benefit. NutreaLife members can upload medical records into their own confidential accounts and access their own information on demand as long as they are members.  With extra security measures built into the system, members can control who has permission to access these records.

“Our benefits place the power into the patient’s control, explained Dr. Eyring. “We believe high-quality, personalized care and preventive support should be affordable and accessible to everyone, whether they are currently insured or not.”

If “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” NutreaLife benefits hold a lot of weight. NutreaLife members are entitled to free preventive care and wellness options including health assessments, wellness coaching and steep discounts on NutreaLife’s nutritional supplements and homeopathic remedies.

NutreaLife membership is among the most affordable with monthly plans starting at $11. Members that don’t already have an insurance-issued prescription plan can receive discounts from 10% to 80% on prescriptions at most major pharmacies. All members get exclusive discounts on NutreaLife’s health supplements and other services. In addition to saving money, members save time. All services are accessible by telephone, computer or any digital device with access to the internet, which cuts out travel time.

“We are especially excited about Healthiest You’s new mobile app that will further simplify health management for our members,” said Dr. Eyring. Designed to enhance the user’s experience, the free “app” makes the online benefits accessible “on-the-go” from internet-ready mobile smart devices. App features include a pharmacy locater, prescription price comparisons, mobile access to search tools and automatic “push” alerts that inform members detected waiting in an emergency room that they have an option to speak with a tele-health physician.

“We envision NutreaLife as an equal-opportunity advocate for healthy lifestyle choices. With easy access to affordable, quality health benefits from the privacy and convenience of your own home,” Dr. Eyring concluded.

For Immediate Release

 

(Scottsdale, AZ) Dean R. Silver, M.D. a leading cardiologist for 30+ years is developing a new state of the art age rejuvenation and chronic disease wellness center called, The Silver Institute for Life Extension.

The Institute will provide a blend of traditional and alternative modalities using the latest in international technologies with proven track records. The emphasis is based on patient centered, personalized genomic and toxic evaluation to optimize each person’s biochemical individuality.

Most of the diseases facing the U.S. are chronic, based on our aging population. Unfortunately there are no systems in place to meet this demand. Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and obesity are all chronic diseases of aging.

These diseases are present for years before they become clinically evident.

The Silver Institute for Life Extension Medicine will optimize each patient’s genetic expression to help them live a long, disease free life. More information can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etj0tdtkrZI  “The aim is to remain mentally and physically vibrant through our entire life” says Dr. Silver who cured himself of lymphoma cancer and heart disease using many of the treatments he uses in his practice.

The Institute is dedicated to disease prevention, early detection and reversal of age related diseases. It will become the new model for healthcare in this century.  Baby boomers have looked at the traditional medical paradigm and are not happy, it is costly and ineffective.  Silver Institute will focus on peer reviewed worldwide modalities to slow the aging process.  Each patient will receive a detailed written “plan for life”.  All testing with interpretations, dietary, exercise, nutritional and medication needs will be presented in a patient friendly format.

A sampling of chronic complex diseases Dr Silver treats include:

cancer, autoimmune, heart disease, neurological disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Lyme, HIV, fungus, pain, gastrointestinal, liver, pulmonary, hormonal imbalance, chemical sensitivities and detoxification.

Dr. Silver is a staff physician at the Scottsdale Healthcare Hospital System.  For more information and educational videos visit www.deansilvermd.com or call 480/860.2030 to schedule an appointment.   Their new location after June 16, is at 7420 East Pinnacle Peak Rd. Suite 126 Scottsdale, AZ 85255.

Let’s Kick It! Earth Day Soccer Classic and Celebration

Say CloudNine Marketing is supporting this event

Earth-Day-Soccer-Classic1
It’s time to play ball! Join us for soccer, solar and sustainability on April 12 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the bi-continental Earth Day Soccer Classic and Earth Day Celebration featuring an all-day soccer tournament, solar cookout, live entertainment, hands-on activities, demonstrations and a chance to give back.

For those of you who have been following this story, you know that Green Living magazine is teaming up with Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability, Sun Devil Fitness and Tempe Sister Cities to bring you a soccer tournament that highlights the philanthropic work of Royal Philips and One World Futbol.

We hope all of you soccer enthusiasts have signed up to play that day (if you are reading this in early April, there is still time) and that you sustainability enthusiasts will be there as we celebrate renewable energy victories in Africa (specifically Ghana) and Arizona, Earth Day and pioneers in sustainable business.

We caught up with some of the players including a team of ASU MasterCard Foundation Scholars and a PhD student from Ghana. The ASU MasterCard Foundation Scholarship program awards students from Sub-Saharan Africa who come from the poorest communities and demonstrate exceptional leadership and academic talent. These students have served their communities and schools and have committed to return to Africa after attending ASU to further their positive impact.

Ngoni-Mugwisi

 

One of these students, Ngoni Mugwisi from Zimbabwe, is particularly excited to play in the tournament, recalling his transformational experience playing street soccer as a young boy. “Playing soccer was an integral part of my upbringing. From a young age I was playing with my friends on the dusty streets of Mkoba, in my hometown, Gweru. That contributed a lot to my personal development. Soccer is a team sport that enhances communication and quick decision making while promoting friendly competition.”

Ngoni added, “Most kids in my country still play street soccer regularly…there isn’t much video gaming to talk about. However, although they do not lack in talent or passion, these kids do not have access to actual soccer balls. They usually resort to making balls out of plastic, paper or cloth that is piled together into a roughly spherical shape. Playing in the Earth Day Soccer Classic provides hope to change this situation since funds from the tournament can be used to provide African communities with long-term and durable soccer balls. There is no limit to the great soccer talent that can be discovered on African streets, and by playing in this tournament I feel that I am contributing to nurturing that talent.”

One World Futbol knows all too well the power that soccer can have on youth in Africa and of their struggle to find a decent ball with which to play. That is why their mission is to bring nearly indestructible balls to deserving youth. The Earth Day Soccer Classic will use One World Futbols in the tournament and will have a fundraising web page where you can purchase a ball for $40, with a second ball going to Africa, or you can just buy a ball to be sent to Africa for $25.

Ernest Nkansah-Dwamena, a PhD student from Ghana, echoed Ngoni’s enthusiasm, saying, “There is no greater excitement than showcasing my beloved country Ghana at the forefront of soccer and I just can’t be prouder than being a part of making this happen.” Ernest continued, “This is also an opportunity to reinforce ASU’s School of Sustainability goals of building a community with a sense of belonging, a community where ideas are created and shared together and a community that believes in the future.”

Mariama-Salifu

 

Mariama Salifu, one of the MasterCard Scholars, is from Ghana. The day before the Earth Day Soccer Classic in Tempe, Mariama’s brother Shafic Osman will be coordinating a soccer tournament with his soccer league, Top Ten Football Academy, in Accra, Ghana, on one of Royal Philips’ Community Light Centers fields.

Local soccer player, Nora Kuby, is thrilled to have a team playing in the tournament. “There is a poetic beauty in supporting clean energy as well as helping our friends in Ghana, all while playing the world’s favorite sport. Soccer brings people together, and as a participant in the tournament, I love knowing that not only am I making new friends and having a wonderful time myself, but that I am a part of something bigger and more important than the tournament itself.”

In addition to the soccer games at the event, we will also host a solar oven cookout, brought to us by the Community Christian Church and Arizona Interfaith Power & Light. Join us to taste the renewable goodness of a solar -cooked quesadilla, among other savory solar samples.

Michael-Begley-Mark-Richardson-and-Olivia-Kuby

We will be collecting electronic waste, also known as e-waste, to help you with spring de-cluttering. So if it has a plug or battery and is sitting in your junk drawer, attic, garage, storage unit, and/or is obsolete or broken, bring it with you. We also will be offering document shredding.

Remember, this event is an all-day tournament. It is highly suggested you bring reusable water bottles (there will be water stations), sun protection, and a chair or blanket so you can relax and watch several games.

Concessions will be sold by Tempe Sister Cities with the goal to donate funds to Tempe’s Sister City, Timbuktu, Mali, a large African nation north of Ghana, which has gone through trying times in recent years. Local businesses and community groups will also be at the Earth Day Soccer Classic showing off their sustainability initiatives. Plans are underway to have additional entertainment such as African or hip-hop dancers and a community art project led by local environmental artist, Joan Baron.

The event kicks off at 8 a.m. and continues all day until the end of the championship game at 9 p.m. We look forward to seeing you, your friends and family there! Happy Earth Month!

And a great day of activities, entertainment and soccer is our GOAL!
