Dr. Jim Collins is a Gerontologist and nationally-recognized expert in wellness and health care for seniors and older Americans. Based in Ohio, his 30 year career has spanned everything from Geropsychiatry to home health regimens for active seniors. Dr. Collins has a strong focus on education – a prolific author of published articles, he has served as a college instructor and is the founder of Collins Learning, a highly regarded education service that provides training to tens of thousands of senior care health professionals around the country.

Dr Collin’s passion for healthy aging and gerontology started when he was in high school and his father handed him the keys to the car to take his mom back and forth to work at the Assumption Nursing Home. Before and after school, he would stop in and visit with residents and staff and would continue this for decades. He became fascinated by the physical, emotional and neurological challenges faced by older Americans, especially those in senior living. It was here that Dr. Collin’s formed a life-long belief that preventative care and maintaining an active lifestyle were key in senior’s physical and emotional well-being.

Dr. Collins graduated college with the first degree ever in Applied Gerontological Studies, an approved major that he created, and then earned a master’s in sociology and psychology of aging. He also holds a doctoral degree in Health Administration and has received a certificate from the Institute for Life Span Development and Gerontology. Dr. Collins then established a gerontology practice and also began education consulting to what would become hundreds of senior living communities.

Dr. Collins has written countless articles, newsletters, and the first book about person-centered care for seniors entitled “The Person-Centered Way: Revolutionizing Quality of Life in Long Term Care”.

After researching hundreds of medical articles, Dr. Collins became an early strong proponent of the benefits of CBD for aging-related health. Given his vast background in physical, emotional and neuro-degenerative age-related disorders, he has emerged as an expert voice in the CBD space and is currently writing a book about aging and CBD. This passion led Dr. Collins to create Sapphire Essentials, with the mission to provide the highest-quality, all-natural, organically grown medical hemp-based CBD products to older adults and seniors. Sapphire Essentials is proud to be the first and only science-based CBD brand that is specifically formulated for the needs of active seniors.

Educator, speaker, author and now founder of Sapphire Essentials, Dr Collins remains as passionate as ever in his life mission – to provide senior wellness education and help older adults find powerful preventative solutions and maximize their quality of life.

Restoring Your Strength With Chil Wellness

Restoring Your Strength With Chil Wellness

April 8, 2020

 

KevinDeMerit.jpg

 

Kevin DeMeritt, Founder of Chil Wellness, a new generation wellness company with the goal to help others joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Kevin DeMeritt discuss the following:

  1. Why did you create Chil Wellness?
  2. Tell us more about the product you named after your daughter – Aspen’s Deep Relief Salve.
  3. How do you know if CBD is working for you?
  4. Stress and anxiety are a big problem in today’s society. Can CBD help?
  5. What do you want people to know about Chil Wellness?

In 1997, Kevin DeMeritt founded Lear Capital, a precious metals company. In 2008 he also co-founded Wilshire Finance Partners, a real estate investment fund, and currently serves as its president.

Mr. DeMeritt holds his Bachelors Degree with an emphasis in business and economics from the University of Montana. He is nationally recognized as an expert on the markets, the economy and geo-political events. As an expert DeMeritt has been a guest commentator on more than 1000 radio and television talk shows.

In 2008, Kevin’s 18 month old daughter, Aspen, was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. She was immediately put on two different medications for the Arthritis and inflammation. One of the medications, methotrexate, is a cancer drug. It is so potent that doctors told his pregnant wife, not to come in contact with the medication because it could affect the health of the baby she carried.

When Kevin heard what this drug could do to his wife and unborn child, he started to research what this drug was doing to his 18-month-old daughter. Seeing the risks, he knew he needed to investigate alternative approaches. Knowing he could not take Aspen off her medication before he found such an alternative, his search began in earnest.

Like a lot of parents, he reached out to Google for help and found oodles of information. He discovered a variety of natural ingredients that showed promise. Arnica, Boswellia and St. John’s Wart were among those products. When rubbed on Aspen’s joints in the right amounts, some relief was achieved. He then heard about CBD and its potential to fight inflation. So why not blend CBD with the other natural ingredients that showed promise and see what happens. The result? Aspen was elated.

The more research he did, the more convinced he became that CBD could be something special. In 2016 a team of lab researchers from the University of Kentucky published the results of their study of CBD for relieving arthritis symptoms in mice in the European Journal of Pain. They concluded that when they induced arthritis into the knee joints of mice and applied a transdermal CBD gel, it reduced the joint swelling. The result was music to his ears.

He began sharing his formulations with others who started to use it for their own aches and pains. Again the results were positive and the requests for more product began to roll in.

Kevin is not a medical professional, just a parent on a mission to help his daughter. He wanted Aspen to have a normal childhood and to run and play with the other kids. The goal was for her to grow up strong and healthy and be able to do whatever she loved in life. The CBD formulas and products he has developed are the radiant outcome of love. He continually seeks out the best ingredients, scientists and technology to get the best results.

His pledge is to be transparent with the ingredients and testing with a:

  • Commitment to use high-quality natural ingredients
  • Purchase ingredients from socially responsible sources
  • Back all products with a 30-Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Today, his daughter is 14 years old and an accomplished athlete with an active and enjoyable lifestyle. He created Chil Wellness as a new-generation wellness company with the goal to help others.

Heather Hughes, Founder of BioFit 360

Heather Hughes, Founder of BioFit 360

December 6, 2019

 

Heather_Hughes.jpeg

 

Heather Hughes, Founder of BioFit 360, who has been working in the healthcare industry for over 20 years joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel.

After hundreds of hours of research, product testing and consultation, Heather and her team brought BioFit 360 to market, sourcing the products from the most trusted manufacturers with the highest ratings.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Heather Hughes discuss the following:

  1. Why did you create BioFit 360?
  2. What are issues that you see with dosage transparency in your industry?
  3. I understand you have an Ambassadog? What does Frankie do for BioFit 360?
  4. Tell me more about the environmental benefits of industrial hemp farming?
  5. Where can our listeners learn more about BioFit 360?

Heather Hughes has been working in healthcare for 20 years, and her husband’s family has been involved in farming and agriculture for generations. This uniquely qualifies her to lead a company that produces the highest quality and most effective CBD products, understanding and overseeing every step of creation, from plant to person.

Heather grew up in Jamestown, North Dakota. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing from Minnesota State University Moorhead, and an MBA from North Dakota State University in Fargo. She then moved to Southern California where she began working in healthcare management, and where she and her husband purchased a grapefruit orchard.

While in North Dakota, Heather worked for a research organization which did pharmaceutical testing of generic drugs and for which she wrote the final FDA reports. In Southern California, Heather has worked for over a decade as the Director of Care Coordination for a major health care management company. Working with wonderful nurses and teams of dedicated healthcare professionals, she became aware of the harsh realities of opioid and other prescription drug abuse.

A few years ago she realized the benefits of using industrial hemp-derived CBD in treating an extraordinary number of ailments. Meanwhile, the Asian Citrus Psyllid was slowly spreading in California and carrying a deadly tree virus that had infected about 90 percent of the citrus crop in Florida. So she applied to the California Department of Food and Agriculture and became registered to cultivate industrial hemp. Simultaneously, Heather was sought-out by a group of health care professionals who asked her to join them in creating a CBD company. Their common goal was to help patients manage chronic conditions like pain and anxiety in a more natural, plant-based way.

After hundreds of hours of research, product testing and consultation, Heather and her team brought BioFit 360 to market, sourcing the products from the most trusted manufacturers with the highest ratings. Soon an esteemed crop of experts will be collaborating on manufacturing BioFit 360 products using industrial hemp organically grown in the Hughes Citrus orchard.

In addition to working with BioFit 360, Heather is the busy mother of three, is active in animal rescue, and in her rare moments of leisure, she enjoys early mornings with a good book and a cup of Irish Breakfast tea.

Building a CBD Super Food Brand

Building a CBD Super Food Brand

September 18, 2019

 

RichieHarrington_Post.png

 

Richie Harrington, CEO of Vaital Organics, a CBD super food brand joins eHealth Radio and the CBD and Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Richie Harrington discuss the following:

  1. Explain how Vaital Organics should be enjoyed.
  2. How does the CBD work?
  3. What are key ingredients in Vaital Organics?
  4. Who are some of your key advisors?
  5. What have you learned as you create this brand?

Richard “Richie” Harrington is the founder and CEO of Vaital Organics, a Los Angeles-based health and wellness company that is pioneering CBD-infused superfood supplements with an emphasis on healthier living.

Born and raised in Santa Monica and residing on the Westside for his entire life, Richie only moved away from Los Angeles to attend school and play football in Oregon. After a string of injuries ended his athletic career and left him with a great deal of post-surgery pain and inflammation, Richie turned to CBD and hemp products as an alternative to opioid medications. After college, Harrington continued to deal with the same issues and sought a way to take control of his health for good. That’s when he met Vaital co-founder, Reno Rollé Jr. Reno also used cannabis and hemp products as alternative medicines to fight the opioid epidemic and introduced Richie to superfoods as a holistic alternative to supplements and as a way to boost energy levels, improve overall wellness, and springboard himself into a better diet and exercise routine. Richie began to see cannabis products and superfoods as the perfect marriage: CBD for inflammation and pain management, as well as to level out brain activity, and superfoods to boost energy, metabolism and overall health and wellness. From this realization and partnership, Vaital Organics was born.

From the company’s conception in July of 2018, Richie has had to wear a lot of hats at Vaital. As founder and CEO, Richie is on the ground overseeing day-to-day operations, communicating with stakeholders, managing finances and sales all the way through the backend. Vaital is his passion, born out of a vision to create an alternative wellness solution that offered benefits that no other superfood or CBD product on the market could match.
