Intimate Wellness Device by Joylux

Joylux chosen as the award winner of the prestigious Luis Villalobos Award, honoring ingenuity and innovation among start up companies

SEATTLE, WA, USA, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — April 25, 2019. Joylux, a leading FemTech company using high-tech solutions to improve women’s intimate health, has been named the most innovative company by Angel Capital Association (ACA) members, a membership of 14,000+ accredited angel investors. ACA members nominated 50 companies and Joylux was chosen as this year’s Luis Villalobos Award winner. Joylux is the first female-founded FemTech company to receive such honors by the ACA.

Joylux is tackling the taboo topic of women’s intimate health through its portfolio of patented, home-use solutions using innovative light and thermal energy under the vSculpt and vFit brands. 51% of the world’s population are women, yet women’s health has been neglected for decades. Historically, men have been the primary drivers behind emerging science and technology and vaginal health is a problem where men rarely focus and which the women in their lives rarely discuss. More than half of menopausal women suffer from stress incontinence, vaginal dryness, and sexual function concerns but have few solutions available to them.

It took a woman with a creative mind and personal experience with childbirth to understand what an enormous and underserved market opportunity improving vaginal health creates. Joylux has successfully aligned themselves with investors who not only see the enormous growth potential in women’s intimate health, but also want to provide life-changing solutions for women globally. “The vision of inventors can’t become reality without angel investors willing to take risks and bravely explore new markets and ideas. When a founder and daring angels come together, magic happens. We are proud to be a part of this” says Dan Rosen, a member of the Seattle chapter of the Alliance of Angels and the nominator. Among the angel groups supporting Joylux are Alliance of Angels, BELLE Capital, Golden Seeds, Houston Angel Network, Keiretsu Capital, Portfolia Seavest, Sofia Fund, and other angels.

“We are beyond proud to be chosen and humbly accept this honor. We will continue on our mission to enhance the quality of life for women around the world through improved intimate health. We are very thankful to have the support of amazing investors and industry leaders, including our doctors who educate women every day on the importance of these topics” says Colette Courtion, CEO & Founder.

MOBE’s services focus on the areas of diet, sleep, movement, emotional health and medication with the goal of improving overall health, and as a result, lowering health care costs.

“MOBE is a great example of innovation in the right place at the right time," Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve said. "Their plans for boosting healthcare access, renovation near downtown, and higher-paying jobs are commendable. I truly believe we can have it all here in Reno, and MOBE helps us get one step closer."

The growth of more technology related businesses in our region, like MOBE is another example that Northern Nevada is continuing on the right path to strengthen and diversify our economy.”

Dr. Pol and GrowthCell Global Enter into Licensing Agreement For Comprehensive Line of CBD Products

GrowthCell

GrowthCell has entered into a licensing agreement with Dr. Jan Pol, a veterinarian and star of Nat Geo WILD's reality television series, The Incredible Dr. Pol.

KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — GrowthCell Global Corp. (GCG) has entered into a licensing agreement with Dr. Jan Pol, a veterinarian & star of Nat Geo WILD’s reality television series "The Incredible Dr. Pol" for a comprehensive line of CBD products for pets.

The new deal calls for GCG to develop a portfolio of animal supplements, treats and tinctures with CBD and/or Hemp which will feature the Dr. Pol brand. GCG's differentiator is its pharmaceutical grade oligopeptide natural patented ingredient designed to complement and enhance any feeding program. It contains nutrients critical to maximizing health and lifespan, regardless of age or condition.

In The Incredible Dr. Pol, viewers travel with Dr. Pol across rural Michigan as he tirelessly cares for family pets and livestock in need of his expertise and kindness. The series, which celebrated its 100th episode in 2017 and will debut its 15th season in July, continues to break ratings records for the Nat Geo WILD network.

A true television icon, Dr. Pol has been featured in dozens of major media outlets such as USA Today, PEOPLE, Parade Magazine, TV Guide, AARP, New York Daily News, Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and top TV shows including The Doctors, Fox & Friends, Home & Family, ABC News, Adult Swim, Good Day LA and many others.

"As a veterinarian, I'm excited to partner with GrowthCell and incorporate their science-based research into beneficial products for pets," states Dr. Pol.

Given the breadth of the license agreement with Dr. Pol, there will be products sold into multiple channels including, but not limited to, the independent specialty market, mass retail and online. "GCG is thrilled to be working with Dr. Pol and our first priority is developing and making some products available as soon as possible via direct-to-consumer and online, which are expected to start hitting the market mid to late Q3," says Pam Lehr, Chief Business Development Officer of GrowthCell Global Corp.

About Dr. Pol:
"In this business, it is totally unpredictable what you're going to get, day to day. Animals don't wait to get sick, and they don't take appointments. They get sick, and they need to be seen. So, some days, you’re gonna go in, and there’s gonna be nothing going on. And other days, you're gonna go in, and you can't run fast enough."– Dr. Jan Pol

With more than 45 years of veterinary experience, Dr. Pol is a pioneer in treating animals. He is also the star of Nat Geo WILD's #1 hit television series, The Incredible Dr. Pol, which follows the doctor on his routine 14-hour workdays treating both pets and livestock in rural Michigan. The Incredible Dr. Pol, now in its 15th season, celebrated its 100th episode in 2017 and continues to break ratings records for the network and surprise viewers with Dr. Pol’s witty and charming, no-nonsense approach to animal care.

Dr. Pol immigrated from the Netherlands to the United States in 1971. After ten years of practice, he moved to Weidman, Michigan, in 1981 and founded Pol Veterinary Services out of his garage with his wife, Diane. With a down-to-earth, practical approach to veterinary medicine, Dr. Pol grew his practice from a humble start to one with over 25,000 clients.

About GrowthCell Global Corp.:
GrowthCell infuses nutraceuticals with a patented oligopeptide that increases the bioavailability of CBD.

Heart Procedure Reduces Dementia and Stroke Risk in Heart Disease Patients Who Have Atrial Fibrillation, Study FInds

Even though most medical practitioners may opt not to perform procedures on higher-risk patients, new research finds that it may be a good idea for those who suffer from both atrial fibrillation and heart disease.

We have previously shown that both atrial fibrillation and carotid arterial disease can increase risk of both stroke and dementia, the next step was to understand how treatments may impact risks”

— T. Jared Bunch, MD, Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, USA, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Even though most medical practitioners may opt not to perform procedures on higher-risk patients, new research finds that it may be a good idea for those who suffer from both atrial fibrillation and heart disease.

In a new study from the Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute in Salt Lake City, researchers found that performing catheter ablations on patients who suffer from both atrial fibrillation and carotid arterial disease reduces their risk of dementia and stroke compared to managing their care with medications.

Catheter ablation is a procedure that makes small scars in heart tissue to prevent abnormal electrical signals from causing rapid and irregular heart rhythms, or atrial fibrillation.

The findings could lead to changes in how patients with atrial fibrillation and carotid arterial disease are treated, even if they traditionally haven’t been candidates for more aggressive treatment, such as an ablation.

“Often in medicine, higher-risk patients are less often referred for an invasive procedure due to concerns of procedural risk,” said T. Jared Bunch, MD, principal investigator of the study and medical director of Heart Rhythm Services for Intermountain Healthcare. “Our research shows that higher risk patients may be those who are most likely to benefit from ablation when the procedure can be performed safely in centers with expertise so that these patients’ long-term risk of dementia and stroke can be positively impacted.”

Results of the study were presented at the American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions in Atlanta last month.

“Atrial fibrillation and dementia are two disease states that are becoming more common in our society and are placing an increasing burden on patients, families, and the healthcare system,” Dr. Bunch. “The results of our study raise the awareness of the significant connection between the two and show what a significant difference catheter ablation can make as we understand the potential benefits of restoring a normal heart rhythm to improve brain health.”

In the study, researchers identified 5,786 atrial fibrillation patients with no history of dementia. Patients were then separated into those who had carotid arterial disease, and those who didn’t.

Researchers found that performing catheter ablation to correct irregular heartbeats in patients with both atrial fibrillation and carotid arterial disease resulted in a lower five-year risk of dementia or stroke and dementia alone, compared to similar patients who didn’t have the procedure done. They also found that ablation made less of a difference in patients with just atrial fibrillation.

“We have previously shown the both atrial fibrillation and carotid arterial disease can increase risk of both stroke and dementia, the next step was to understand how treatments may impact risks,” added Dr. Bunch.

Dr. Bunch believes that atrial fibrillation, which is an irregular heartbeat that leads to interrupted blood flow to the brain, is compounded by carotid arterial disease, in which plaque builds up in the carotid arteries. That’s because when an artery is blocked, the brain loses some of its ability to compensate for hemodynamic stress that can occur with abnormal heart rhythms and as a consequence brain injury and dysfunction can develop.

“There’s not a known therapy that changes the natural progressive course of dementia. Dementia now is one of the most common causes of disability and death in developed countries. As a consequence, we have to identify people at risk of dementia earlier before they come into the clinic with cognitive decline to start potential disease altering therapies very early,” said Dr. Bunch. “Without treatments that can improve dementia progression, our efforts need to center on prevention within the multiple pathways that cause brain injury and dysfunction.”

Study funding was provided, in part, by donors to the Intermountain Research and Medical Foundation.

Local Drug-Free Ambassador is the Newest Voice for Humanity on the Scientology TV Network

Darren Tessitore answers questions from audience at screening of Scientology TV’s Voices for Humanity

Darren is so dedicated to go so far to figure out how to get the materials out. Some people just do a little and give up. It is impressive to see someone so driven.”

The 30-minute feature ended in a standing ovation for Darren Tessitore who was in the audience along with his 13-year-old daughter Sandra, who also played a part in her father’s drug-free work.

The mesmerizing video showed how Tessitore, recognizing that he couldn’t do it alone, reached out to other like-minded people who have the means of reaching thousands but didn’t the effective tools Tessitore has to educate youth and adults on the truth about drugs. Through the FDFW’s Truth About Drugs booklets, documentary and educators kit, Tessitore has now reached over 3 million people in 13 states across the US.

Christie Wood who is visiting relatives in Clearwater decided to attend the screening as she has been watching the Scientology network at home. She said, “These episodes are so well done. You have to cry when you watch it. You can’t help but hear the hooting and hollering with everyone here in the auditorium and not feel like crying. Darren is so dedicated to go so far to figure out how to get the materials out. Some people just do a little and give up. It is impressive to see someone so driven. The production was very beautifully made.”

After the showing, Darren took up several questions from the crowd to brief them more on the Truth About Drugs campaign and how they can help. There were questions such as, “How do I contact a school about the Truth About Drugs?” Darren answered the questions making it real how it is easy it is to help and get involved and then he gave his email: darrent@drugfreeworld.org.

Foundation for a Drug-Free World:

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a non-profit organization that educates youth and the community on the truth about illicit drugs so they can make the right decision live drug-free. The Church of Scientology is a sponsor of the program making it possible for the foundation to provide educational materials at no cost to educators, law enforcement and the community. It was the founder of the Scientology religious philosophy who said, “Research has demonstrated that the single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs."

Everyone deals with stress from time to time. Physician Kamal Pourmoghadam discusses the importance of effective stress management for the quality of your life.

Dr. Kamal K. Pourmoghadam (N/A:N/A)

Stress management can help one deal with the trials and tribulations of life and lower your chances of developing health problems”

— Dr. Kamal Pourmoghadam, Orlando, Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stress can affect people at any stage of their lives. Adults often suffer from stress because of issues stemming from their family and workplace. Academic and social pressures are often the cause for teens, such as difficulty studying and scoring good grades. They could also have difficulty acclimating to their school’s environment and making friends. Stress can also be caused by difficult relationships, bullying, unemployment, the loss of a loved one, among many other causes.

Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD, shares his thoughts in a new article, which is available on his blog at https://drpourmoghadam.home.blog/

Stress can have detrimental effect on your health in many ways. Frequent headaches, difficulty sleeping and concentrating, fatigue, unusual mood swings, and an upset stomach can all be caused by stress. The effects of long-term stress include high blood pressure, heart attack, abnormal changes in weight, depression, skin problems, and fertility problems.

Stress management can help one deal with the trials and tribulations of life and lower your chances of developing health problems. Some useful stress management tips that can help you deal with stress are as follows.

Stop Over-analyzing

Don’t let problems with office workload or difficult relationship affect your health. You should learn to accept some things as they are and understand the fact that excessive worrying and letting an issue overtake your mind won’t make things better. Focus on stop thinking and taking action.

Talking to people at the workplace about the problems may be a good idea. If you’re in a difficult relationship, talk to your partner and try to solve your problems by putting your differences aside. Taking action will likely lead to a more productive outcome and save you from over-thinking and getting stressed unnecessarily.

“So What?”

Sometimes it can help to imagine the worst that can happen. Ask yourself the “so what?” question. Thinking through the worst case scenario can help you maintain an optimistic attitude and accept life’s problems. You’ll understand the fact that there are certain events in life that you do not have power over. You cannot control those things or prevent them from happening.

Anger Control

Being upset and feeling furious over small issues in life can cause you to suffer from unnecessary stress. Remaining calm and solving problems logically instead of getting aggressive can reduce the stress you feel in your life.

Also, not every worry or thought need to be verbalized. Sometimes letting go of things and suppressing the urge to voice every thought can be helpful. Arguing needlessly will do nothing else except further complicate things and cause stress.

Exercise, Yoga, and Meditation

Utilizing tools such as meditation and yoga can help you gain control over your feelings and lower your chances of developing stress. Yoga helps to connect your mind and body. It can help calm you and help you in dealing with stressful situations. Also, daily exercise can help you fight stress by releasing endorphins that soothe your brain and lower stress.

Also important is getting proper sleep, eating a balanced diet, moderating your intake of alcohol, and managing your time efficiently. If you still find stress to be overwhelming, consult a medical doctor to help you manage stress and live a better life. Don’t ignore stress thinking that it will go away on its own. Following the above-mentioned stress management tips or seeking professional will help you manage stress and lead a healthy life.

The photo shows Mr. Ganguly

Mr. Ganguly has helped small businesses grow and prosper. He brings to clients a wealth of experience acquired over the years solving business problems. His topic is “A Healthy Network = A Healthy Network.”

Alameda Center invited Business Consultant Shoumo Ganguly to explain the concept of "influencer marketing" and discuss how executives build this capability.

Business Consultant Shoumo Ganguly is our guest speaker, and he is going to share proven concepts for building healthy, professional networks. He will discuss how to become a business influencer.””

— Junel Harrell-Hutchinson, Director of Community Development

PERTH AMBOY , NEW JERSEY , UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — PThe Alameda Center for Rehabilitation & Healthcare is hosting a premier networking event on Tuesday, April 30 beginning at 6 p.m. The evening, which includes light refreshments and hors d ’overs, will be held in the Alameda Center at 303 Elm Street in Perth Amboy.

The program – Alameda Springs Forward – is a meet-and-greet event for building new relationships and energizing existing ones. Owners of local companies are encouraged to attend as well as executives in healthcare, banking, real estate, hospitality, marketing and many business sectors. Admission is free and attendees are encouraged to pre-register at Alameda Springs Forward April Networking Event on the Eventbrite website.

Alameda Center’s Director of Community Development Junel Harrell-Hutchinson said, “We are providing a venue for business people to grow their networks. Business Consultant Shoumo Ganguly is our guest speaker, and he is going to share proven concepts for building healthy, professional connections and becoming a business influencer.”

Mr. Ganguly is a member of the Board of Directors at the Woodbridge Metro Chamber of Commerce. He is also a Business Counselor at the Small Business Development Center at Rutgers University in New Brunswick.

As the founder and president of Obligent Consulting, Mr. Ganguly has helped small businesses grow and prosper. He brings to clients a wealth of experience acquired over the years solving business problems. His topic is “A Healthy Network = A Healthy Network.”

“The value of a business seminar is enhanced when the organizers build in an opportunity to network,” Mr. Ganguly explains. And, he says, the process of developing that relationship cannot be hurried.

“A tree takes its own time to grow,” he says. “A forest of trees – your network of relationships – takes even longer. So it makes sense to be strategic in your approach to networking.

“Speed networking can get you connected to a large population,” said Mr. Ganguly. “Our session will help you build up influence. Influence has value. You can almost take it to the bank. You have all heard of the phrase ‘influencer marketing’, right? So how do you get there?”

To that end, Mr. Ganguly will outline three key elements for reaching that desired outcome:
• The strategy behind building up an authentic, trusted network of influence.
• Some of the techniques that would make the strategy happen.
• The tools to implement the techniques.

“By the time you leave,” Ganguly says, “you would be empowered to start building your influencer status by building a healthy, authentic and trusted network.”

Ms. Harrell- Hutchinson said the networking evening is designed to serve the Alameda Center’s goal of strengthening its long-term alliance with Perth Amboy’s businesses, professionals and civic leaders.
Guests may also R.S.V.P. for the event directly by emailing Ms. Harrell-Hutchinson at JHutchinson@AlamedaCenter.com.

How to Start Using Your Medical Marijuana Card Today

NMMCS logo

You have the MMJ card, so now what?

USA, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Medical marijuana is a growing alternative to traditional medical treatments for a variety of medical conditions. More and more people are taking the leap and applying for their medical marijuana card if they live in a state that has medical cannabis access laws. A medical marijuana card entitles patients to buy marijuana from a dispensary or medical marijuana treatment center.

National Medical Marijuana Card makes it simple to search for marijuana doctors online and find a licensed retailer near you. While not all states accept out-of-state cards, some states do allow patients from other states to purchase cannabis legally. Here’s a quick guide on how to use a medical marijuana card to buy medical cannabis products.

Find a Dispensary
Now that you have a medical marijuana card, you can go out and find a retailer that sells cannabis products. Patients that can’t grow their own marijuana can turn to a caregiver or retailer that provides legal marijuana.

Depending on your state’s marijuana laws, you’ll be able to buy from a dispensary, pharmacy, or state-run medical center near you. Patients who sign-up with a retailer after approval can purchase medical marijuana products allowed by the state. It’s important to buy from legal dispensaries instead of unregulated black market dispensaries that offer questionable products.

Visit a Dispensary and Purchase Medical Marijuana
Search through providers to find a highly-rated one and pay them a visit with a valid marijuana medical card and a form of identification. Most dispensaries and providers are set-up like a professional medical clinic. Patients present their recommendation and ID to the front desk, sign some paperwork to join the collective, and gain access to their variety of cannabis products.

Signing up with a dispensary enables patients to buy different types of medical marijuana products including edibles, topicals, extracts, tinctures, capsules, drinks, syrups, gummies, candies, and the list goes on. Most states have limits on purchases and product concentrations to reduce the risk of overmedication.

Medical Marijuana Card Benefits
As more states continue to legalize recreational cannabis use, many medical patients are considering stopping using medical marijuana cards. Using a medical card has plenty of benefits not afforded to recreational patients. For example, medical cardholders usually pay less for their products due to lower taxes and lack of excise taxes for medical patients. In Colorado, medical patients avoid paying the 10% retail tax and 15% excise tax.

Additionally, medical marijuana cardholders can expect to buy products with higher strengths. Some medical patients have reported needing marijuana with a high concentration of cannabinoids to alleviate their symptoms. In California, medical patients can buy lotions and tinctures with up to 2,000 mg compared to 1,000 mg sold to recreational consumers.

Finally, recreational laws only apply to those who are 21 and over. Medical cards across the nation enable those who are 20 or under to access medical marijuana for therapeutic purposes. Some states also allow medical cardholders to grow more cannabis plants than recreational patients to relieve their medical condition.

Keep in mind, your medical marijuana card will eventually expire. Medical cards are usually valid for 12 months, sometimes less. Once it expires, you won’t be able to use it to purchase cannabis. Renewing with National Medical Marijuana Card can help you avoid any gap in your medical treatment. As a free medical marijuana search tool, you can use it to find certified providers today.

Without our help trafficking victims exist in an absolute vacuum of human rights while traffickers profit exponentially. A civil society cannot allow this barbaric practice to continue.”

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Human Trafficking continues to be a serious problem in the United States despite laws which have closed down several websites that had been selling victims of trafficking for sex.

So when Youth for Human Rights International held their U.S. National Human Rights Conference in Washington, D.C. advocates and leaders from across the country gave a clear message: Human trafficking needs to be stopped through advocacy, legislation, and support for survivors.

Working together with government leaders and other nonprofits, Youth for Human Rights International is not resting on past successes, but redoubling its advocacy for legislation that will give law enforcement and survivors more tools to cut human trafficking statistics in the U.S. and stop the horrors inflicted on young victims.

The main event of the three-day conference was held on Capitol Hill. Legislative aides, national advocates and citizens discussed the issue of human trafficking and what should be done.

Forwarding the “not in my country” message, Ms. Dottie Laster, Founder of Trafficking Victim Rescue Central said, “Without our help trafficking victims exist in an absolute vacuum of human rights while traffickers profit exponentially. A civil society cannot allow this barbaric practice to continue.” She continued, “I commend Youth for Human Rights International for their efforts to bring attention to the human rights violations of human trafficking. Where human trafficking occurs – victims are deprived of all 30 of their human rights.”

Additional speakers from the U.S. Attorney’s Office human trafficking section and Congressional Aides working on legislation on trafficking urged the youth attending to keep advocating for others and to stay alert to trafficking signs.

During the conference, attendees visited Capitol Hill on an advocacy day where they met with their government representatives, discussed human rights and what needs to be done to improve international human rights. The youth delegates who travelled to D.C. to talk about trafficking, promoted legislation to allow survivors to have shorter prison sentences for offenses committed while being trafficked as well as advocating for a nationwide program to train all law enforcement to spot human trafficking.

Erica Rodgers, the National Director for Youth for Human Rights in Washington, D.C. urged young advocates to “continue to advocate and work in their states to bring a final end to the crime of human trafficking. With everyone knowing and respecting each other’s human rights, people will be more aware and work to end this criminal conspiracy.”

At the conference, human rights advocates were awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award for their hard work and persistence in spending 500 – 1000 volunteer hours, or more, promoting and teaching human rights across the United States and around the world. The awardees were Christopher King and his group the Gentleman Course from Florida, Wil Seabrook and his group Rock for Human Rights from Wisconsin, Sophia Angelica from New York, Abigail Pari Crowe and Tiana Crawford from Maryland.

The conference also included a briefing of the 16th Annual Youth for Human Rights World Educational Tour by Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, Founder and President of Youth for Human Rights International who shared her experiences from this year’s trip around the world, as well as the results on the most current status of human rights and human rights violations in the countries visited. They included Cambodia, Canada, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, The Gambia, India, Mexico, Taiwan, Nepal and Washington, D.C.

“Everyone should have responsibility when it comes to practically anything in life, especially their own human rights. A student can sit in a chair with an open book but without taking responsibility to read it, study it, and understand it, they will get nowhere,” said Dr. Shuttleworth.
