April 27, 2014

Stephanie Arnold, Amniotic Fluid Embolism Survivor and the founder of joins eHealth Radio and the Health News, Pregnancy & Female Health Information Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Stephanie Arnold discuss the following:

  • A big part of your story centers around overwhelming premonitions of doom you had during your pregnancy. Can you tell me more about the events leading up to the birth of your son?
  • What happened the day you gave birth? Did your premonitions ring true?
  • Can you explain what an Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE) is? What should women do with that information?
  • Because on your premonitions, you made sure to assemble a great medical team prior to the birth of your son. How did you approach the specialists you worked with? What kind of questions did you ask?
  • Now that you’ve decided to share your story with the world and take on the role of a patient advocate. What are you hoping to accomplish from your efforts?

Duration: 19:20

Known for covering the story rather than being the news, Stephanie’s multi-talented 27 year television career generated her Emmy Nominations and a Telly-Award as she directed and produced numerous television series, reality shows, music videos and documentaries. Her personal life as wife and mother, on the other hand, recently took on a direction most broadcast media would love to produce, rather than star in it. Currently, in her “second” life, Stephanie’s entire world has changed, shifting gears from being behind the camera to being front and center.

Her headline?

Mom dies during childbirth and lives to tell about it, OH, and she predicted it would happen!

Stephanie was clinically dead for 37 seconds after giving birth to her second child Jacob.  She suffered a catastrophic amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) on May 2013.  Something so rare, most doctors have only read about it in their textbooks. Stephanie’s case is a raw look into wonders of human instinct and the human body. Not only did she survive such a rare occurrence, but surviving as well as she did months after and predicting what would happen, has led doctors to call her a true medical miracle.

Prior to her son’s birth, Stephanie was diagnosed with a complete placenta previa, which can cause serious complications during delivery.  Following this discovery, Stephanie experienced overwhelming premonitions of doom.  She told anyone who would listen to her anxiety and her intuitiveness, but was never taken seriously. She spoke to many doctors and specialists in hopes that someone would pay attention to her.  Unbeknownst to her, someone finally did and that doctor flagged her file and incorporated extra measures in the operating room at the time of delivery that ultimately saved her life.

With the gift of a second chance at life, Stephanie has devoted herself to making others aware of their own intuition. She encourages patients to become their own advocates when speaking to their health care professionals. She currently serves on the patient committee at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and has created a web site as a resource for information and inspiration. “If you SENSE something, SAY something” is her message as she wants the world to know speaking up can ultimately save your life.

Stephanie is proud wife of Jonathan Arnold, PhD. economist, and loving mom to Adina, Jacob and stepdaughter Valentina.  She lives in Chicago.

Helping Those 44 and Above Find Love with Leonardo Bustos of the Mate Acquisition Program

Helping Those 44 and Above Find Love with Leonardo Bustos of the Mate Acquisition Program

April 24, 2014

The Companionator Leonardo Bustos, Creator of the Mate Acquisition Program, the most logical way to find your best available Love Match in the shortest time possible joins eHealth Radio and the Dating and Relationship Channels. His program is designed to help find love for 44 and above.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Leonardo Bustos discuss the following:

  • What is it that you do and how are you different?
  • What is your background?
  • How did you get started & what was the inspiration of creating The Companionator?
  • You mentioned that it’s a scientific approach – how is it scientific?
  • Can you give us some dating tips that you share with your clients?
  • What do you have planned for the future?

Duration: 15:14

Leonardo Bustos first became well known as a relationship and dating expert in 1981, when he wrote and published his first book, "How To Attract Men and Keep Them Interested", followed by "How To Attract Women and Keep Them Interested" under the writer’s name Steven Zapman. They can still be found on and other online book stores.

At the time, he was featured in many publications like Playboy, Cosmopolitan, the L.A. Times and many other journals too numerous to mention. He also garnered plenty of media attention on many radio and television stations - the most prominent being a weekly spot on a nationally syndicated radio program called "Something You Should Know".

He spoke to dozens of organizations and thousands of singles seeking romance and relationships. He had a brief stint teaching a course "How to Attract the Opposite Sex" at Glendale Junior College in the early 1980's.

For marriage and personal reasons, he switched careers and for the next several years became a successful real estate agent and broker marketing multi-million dollar commercial and residential properties.

In the year 2000 he became single again and dusted off his dating skills. Although he had no problem meeting women at the supermarket, nightclubs or through friends, he quickly discovered that far and away the easiest and most practical way to meet single women was through internet dating.

It’s important to know that even with his background and dating skill set, his first entry into the internet dating scene was not very successful – but after several months of research, trial and error, he learned to master it. 

In 2010, he decided to pick up where he left off precisely half his life ago to renew his career as a dating and relationship expert. He upgraded from cassette tapes and VHS video tapes to computers, spreadsheets and the internet.

Since then, he has published “How To Attract Women With Humor” and “The Ultimate Dating System”. For the past several years, he has worked on combining his decades of experience in preparing and marketing million dollar properties on the internet with his expertise in dating and relationships to create a revolutionary, one of a kind video/software program called the Mate Acquisition Program.

Mate Acquisition Program is the only combined Audio/Video and software program in the world that uses data, the internet and coaching to help those seeking love to select and connect with a perfect partner in the shortest time possible. It helps to prepare and market you like a famous celebrity to as many other singles as possible using the latest innovations and techniques in Evolutionary Psychology, data analysis and Internet Technology.

He has been called "The Companionator", and he and his mentor Leonardo Amorado host a free online dating workshop which can be found at his YouTube Channel under MrLsbustos.

His next plan is to market himself on 20 of the top dating websites as the number 1 “Self Proclaimed” Baby Boomer Bachelor to find his best love match using the system he’s created. He’s going to post a headline “Who Wants Fame, Fortune, Travel, Adventure and Romance?” and do a media blitz on local and national programs in order to find his perfect love match. His match must also have the skills and abilities to help him to build the business even bigger. She must also have the same passion and desire to help other lonely singles find their love match by traveling the world to promote the system.

He also plans to shoot a reality/documentary film on how a dating expert finds his ultimate love match by going behind the scenes to show how he creates professional online profiles, how he sends and responds to messages, and how he behaves on dates.

He currently is offering his video/software program for free to the first ones who want to experience the first beta test rollout. You can sign up here at for more information.

Natural Facial Excercises with the Flexaway System

Natural Facial Excercises with the Flexaway System

April 10, 2014

Tamara Seyhun, President of Hanna Ibes, Inc. d/b/a who has been doing business for more than 10 years in Manufacturing and the sales of a US patented and USA made facial exerciser device the Flexaway System that has been FDA approved since 2001 joins eHealth Radio and the Anti-Aging & Skin Care Channels.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Tamara Seyhun discuss the following:

  • What is the Flexaway System?
  • How does it work?  
  • Is it safe to use?
  • Who uses it? 
  • Why should one use this instead of seeing a dermatologist or plastic surgeon?

Duration: 12:05

When looking in the mirror I was getting deflated: my chin was whittling away, upper lips seemed to be thinning out, I was getting this sad face (corners of mouth turned downward) how was that happening when I was happy? My cheeks seemed flat. Lastly that darn underneath chin whatever needed tightening, I was convinced. I began using the flexaway system in March 2013 in the middle of a blizzard.

I had been surfing the web and noticed that had this facial exerciser device. I thought why not try it since I work out and lift weights and know how that has improved my body after three kids. I had also done Pilates to strengthen core muscles in the past. I have experienced first hand the benefits of exercise and how it brings back our shape. So, I thought, why not try a product that brings back the shape of my face? What did I have to lose? My double chin?

The product was tricky to use at first, and I had to watch the video and work in front of the mirror until I was comfortable.  It took about a week. It took me a while to learn how to change the tension bands. Now I use it everyday after I brush my teeth or before I go to bed. I don't use it on vacations...

I loved the Flexaway System® so much, my friends were asking me what face creams did I use? They asked me for my beauty regimen. Well, it must be working, I thought. In the Spring, I decided to become a distributor for Flexaway and called up Beverly Hanna, the inventor of Flexaway. She told me she lived in Michigan. I said I live in Michigan. We got together for lunch, she said she wanted to retire. The rest is history...

As President of, I urge you to try it so you can feel and see the benefits. We welcome you to send before and after photos and please share your experiences with us via email or on our Facebook page.

We are so confident in the Flexaway System that we offer a customer satisfaction guarantee. If you don't like the Flexaway System simply return it within six-weeks for a money back guarantee. If you have any questions about our products, please contact us. Our staff and I are here to help.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Mr. Twenty Twenty discuss the following:

  • Tell us what happened at the riot & briefly how you got traumatized back in 1989.

  • You say Neville Goddard became a huge influence? Who is he & how does his work effect your life and healing from PSTD.

Duration: 13:16

Back in 1989, I was a young newlywed man, who did what just about everyone does everyday, I got up, got dressed and went to work.   Four hours later, I was taken hostage in one of the three worst prison riots in United States history – the Camp Hill Prison Riots.

“Back then, I suffered with a condition known as PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  PTSD for me was a living hell, living with nightmares, flashbacks, severe self doubt – literally all my symptoms were caused by my IMAGINATION BEING OUT OF CONTROL.”

In time, I cured myself of all that, and became PTSD FREE by taking control of my imagination. So for me, I really needed to do what Neville Goddard promises is possible.  I needed to become a new man again, and create a new reality for me, and I knew that to do that required that I learn everything I could about running my own mind, and that is what brought me to Neville Goddard.
