Joyce Shulman, the Founder and CEO of 99 Walks a company that delivers monthly walking challenges and daily walking classes for women joins eHealth Radio and the Fitness and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Joyce Shulman discuss the following:

  1. We've heard you say that walking is good for your body, your mind and your mood. Could you elaborate: How long do you have to walk to reap those benefits?
  2. For people who don't have a regular walking practice, how should they get started?
  3. The theme for April at 99 Walks is "walk in the rain" -- do you mean that literally?
  4. So there are actual benefits to walking in the rain?
  5. Does it matter where you walk?

Summary: There is no better time than right now to begin to develop a personal walking practice. Lace up your sneakers and walk out the door. One caveat: if you wait until you "feel" like it, you won't do it. You need to commit to walking whether you feel like it or not.

Nothing short of getting a million moms moving.

Throughout her two decades as an entrepreneur, Joyce has guided SAHMs, teachers and even MBAs to success. Joyce shares how moms need to “take care of mama bear” and avoid the “martyr mom syndrome”. Her experience in business and leading mompreneurs makes her a coveted speaker where she shares tactics for beating burnout, fueling creativity, goal crushing, how walking can fuel productivity and performance, and more.

Joyce received her Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Maryland and her Juris Doctor, Cum Laude, from St. John's University School of Law. After law school, she spent more than a dozen years as a New York City lawyer where her practice focused on complex commercial litigation.

A self-confessed idea junkie, in 1998, Joyce abandoned law firm life to liberate her entrepreneurial spirit and focus on the things that are most important to her: family, community and empowering women to chase their dreams.

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.
