The only clinically-tested cosmetic eyebrow formula on the market proven to help combat eyebrow thinning

Renata Marie Vestevich, Owner and Founder at Essential Eyebrow Solution, the only clinically-tested cosmetic eyebrow formula on the market proven to help combat eyebrow thinning joins eHealth Radio and the Hair Health & Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Renata Marie Vestevich discuss the following:

  • How did you come up with Essential Eyebrow Solutions?
  • How does EES work?  What is Black Cohosh?
  • Tell us about the clinical study.
  • Why are eyebrows so important to our faces?
  • Tell us about how EES works for chemo patients.

 

Renata Marie Vestevich is the owner and director of Advanced Hair Solutions in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Her career covers a 30-year span in cosmetology and the hair replacement industry.

Vestevich studied nursing and was employed for 7 years in the medical field before leaving to pursue her dream of creating and operating her own salon. After 10 years as a successful salon owner, she faced a personal struggle when her courageous sister-in-law battled leukemia and subsequent hair loss during her chemotherapy treatment. During this time, Vestevich found that many of her clients wrestled with hair loss issues due to various conditions such as stress, thyroid disorders, hormonal changes, autoimmune disorders, nutritional deficiencies, and the most common cause of hair loss – where the hair is genetically programmed to fall out gradually – “Androgenetic Alopecia” or “Female Pattern Hair Loss.”

Recognizing how emotionally distressing both scalp and eyebrow hair loss can be, Vestevich was inspired to further her professional education. She traveled extensively throughout the United States to study with leading hair replacement educators in order to better serve her clients with the most progressive solutions pertaining to all types of hair loss.

Failing to find a product that would nourish and protect the eyebrows, Vestevich collaborated with a prominent research laboratory and embarked on a 6-year-long process to systematically fulfill her plan to develop EES – Essential Eyebrow Solution®, obtain patents, and test the formulation for safety, stability and efficacy.  Vestevich is fully dedicated to improving the quality of life for chemotherapy patients and others by continuing to develop a full line of safe, natural cosmetic products to help individuals retain a vibrant, healthy appearance.

Renata Marie Vestevich is also an award-winning author. Her book, Grant Me My Final Wish: A Personal Journal to Simplify Life’s Inevitable Journey, was designed to help individuals organize vital statistics and details from their personal documents, plan for end-of-life issues, and express their values and insights gained through living. Vestevich has given motivational speeches to professionals who wish to use Grant Me My Final Wish to strengthen advisor-client relationships, add a humanizing touch to their practices, and address important end-of-life issues with their clients.

Aside from her professional life, Renata thoroughly enjoys spending time with her extended family.  A health and fitness enthusiast, she enjoys many outdoor activities, especially golf and biking. Other interests include reading, writing and cooking.

Measuring Acid/Alkaline Balance and Why It’s Important

May 19, 2017

RussellJaffe.jpg

 

Functional medicine pioneer and thought-leader, Dr. Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD, CCN joins eHealth Radio and the Health Care & Health News Channels. Dr. Jaffe is the Senior Fellow at Health Studies Collegium & Founder of PERQUE Integrated Health and ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Russell Jaffe discuss the following:

  • You frequently speak about acid/alkaline balance. Can you explain what you mean by acid/alkaline balance and why it is important?
  • So how do you recommend someone go about determining how acid or alkaline is balanced or not?
  • What is the ideal pH?
  • If someone is not at the goal of 6.5-7.5 when they measure their first AM urine pH, what do you suggest they do?

 

As a physician and scientist who aspired to be comprehensive, objective, empiric and experiential, Dr. Jaffe started his career searching for deeper understanding, wisdom, evidence and insight in mechanisms of health. Through intense curiosity and learned skepticism, Dr. Jaffe sought to debunk the best-known advocates of a variety of health promotion and healing systems. What started as a journey to disprove holistic forms of care became a rich educational experience that transformed Dr. Jaffe into a student and then researcher in such areas a Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, homeopathy, and manipulative arts.

Motivated by his personal transition, Dr. Jaffe went on to reinvent himself professionally by starting the Health Studies Collegium, a think tank that focuses on sustainable solutions to global health needs, with his fellow colleagues. For the last 30 years, Dr. Jaffe has advocated a system that treats people not diagnoses, cause not consequence, and promotes long term sustainable solutions as an alternative to a system dominated by prescriptive, symptom suppressive solutions. Dr. Jaffe’s cumulative experiences enabled him to take his efforts one step further and build PERQUE Integrative Health, a company that offers the world scientifically proven, integrative health solutions that speed the transition from sick care to healthful caring.

Dr. Jaffe’s practical contributions to clinical medicine and to healthcare policy focus on functional, predictive tests and procedures designed to improve the precision of both diagnosis and of treatment outcomes; he has authored nearly 100 articles on the subject. Examples of his contributions to molecular biology and clinical diagnostics include:

  • Early colon cancer detection tests
  • Predictive tests of cardiovascular health and function based on changes in blood clotting and systemic repair status
  • Quantification of the number of concurrent platelet binding sites needed for collagen to activate platelet-induced blood clotting
  • Identification of the mechanism that controls collagen activation of platelets
  • Antigen ultra-purification for use in high sensitivity immunology assays
  • Mechanism of connective tissue cross-link inhibition by d-penicillamine
  • Predictive tests of immune function and hypersensitivity / delayed allergy
  • Predictive tests of nutritional / metabolic function

Honored as an International Scientist of 2003 by the IBC, Oxford, England, UK for his lifetime contributions to clinical medicine, biochemistry, immunology, methodology, and integrative health policy, Dr. Jaffe is appreciative of the recognition of his peers. He currently serves on the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology and coordinates its certification training program. America’s Top Physicians 2005, Who’s Who in America; Who’s Who in Medicine and Science; Who’s Who in Business and Engineering all have included him in recognition of his contributions to science and community.

Dr. Jaffe is the recipient of the Merck, Sharp & Dohm Excellence in Research Award, the J.D. Lane Award, and the U.S.P.H.S. Meritorious Service Award. He teaches and lectures widely on nutritional immunology and treatment guidelines for chronic autoimmune and immune dysfunction syndromes and has helped elucidate the causes and consequences of immune defense and repair functions in health and disease.

Reese Feuerman, the Chief Financial Officer at ConnectYourCare, a leading provider of consumer-directed health care account solutions joins eHealth Radio and the Health Care & Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Reese Feuerman discuss the following:

  • I understand ConnectYourCare recently conducted a survey of more than 14,000 employees and 250 employers. In that survey you asked consumers what they are doing to try to offset the high costs of health insurance. What was their response?
  • Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are another widely-used method of paying for healthcare needs. Did the survey reveal any trends when it comes to FSAs?
  • Any other surprising findings that came out of the survey?
  • I have an article here that just ran in BenefitsPro on something called the Healthcare Stack. Can you explain what this is to our listeners and what they need to know?
  • In your last response you mentioned that the Trump Administration might increase HSA contributions. Obviously there is a lot of uncertainty in the healthcare and benefits space right now, for both employers and consumers – and understandably, it's hard to make decisions when so much is up in the air. But, what should listeners be doing right now?

 

As CFO, Reese Feuerman oversees all areas of finance for ConnectYourCare, including strategy, financial planning, accounting, tax, and treasury as well as human resources.
