Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Robert Tauler discuss the following:

  • Tell us a bit about problem of illegal steroids being sold right out in the open online and in sports nutrition stores. How big is the problem and what’s at stake?
  • How do these companies work and why can they operate so openly? Where’s the FDA in policing this problem?
  • What are the most common kinds of illegal supplements being sold right now, how do they work, and what are the risks and known side-effects? Do you know of any cases of someone suffering serious physical injury from illegal supplements that you can share with us?
  • How do you use the law to go after these bad actors? How effective have you been in getting the courts to force these people to take these poisons off the market?
  • Who is the market these people sell to? Can you tell us something about the buyers and the sellers? Who makes these supplements? Do the makers of these supplements have any medical backgrounds or qualifications that lets them experiment on customers with unapproved pharmaceutical research drugs?
  • How can unsuspecting people protect themselves from these substances? What should they know? How should they read a supplement’s label?

 

Los Angeles trial attorney Robert Tauler devotes the majority of his practice to nutritional supplement litigation, specifically eliminating steroid and amphetamine analogs from over-the-counter sports supplements. These drugs are sold openly in stores and online under all sorts of names with no warnings about side effects, whether the chemicals have been banned for human consumption, or whether they are outright illegal — as all steroids are without a doctor’s prescription.

In 2016, he was  awarded "Attorney of the Year" by the Los Angeles Westside Bar Association. In 2015 he obtained a $10 million jury verdict against a supplement manufacturer, which was among the top 25 highest verdicts in California that year.

He was honored as an NCAA Big West Scholar-Athlete while an undergraduate at the University of California, Irvine, where he majored in political science and played on the Anteater’s nationally-ranked men’s volleyball team.

5 Time Olympian and Founder of Tootsies Brand, Jacqueline Edwards

August 11, 2016
00:0000:00


Jacqueline Edwards, a 5-time Olympian and Stanford University graduate, who competed in the sport of Track and Field joins eHealth Radio and the Female Health and Pregnancy Channels. Jacqueline is the Founder of Tootsies Maternity Compression Socks, high quality compression socks designed to alleviate the discomfort of swollen legs and feet and all the associated side effects that women experience during and after pregnancy.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Jacqueline Edwards discuss the following:

  • Tell us about your background if you would, I'm sure you have a lot to talk about.
  • Aside from pregnancy, what are some other reasons people may need compressions socks?
  • What makes Tootsie compression socks different?
  • Since you competed in the sport of Track and Field, will you be watching the Olympic Games in Rio?


Tootsies is the brainchild of Jacqueline Edwards, a 5-time Olympian and Stanford University graduate, who competed in the sport of Track and Field (long jump). As an athlete, for many years Jackie wore compression socks to help with recovery, blood circulation, muscle soreness and muscle tone. As a result, she was uniquely aware of their many benefits and actually cites compression socks as one of the reasons why she was able to have such longevity in her athletic career.


One day while in conversation with a pregnant friend whose feet were swollen and achy, she recommended that her friend try a pair of compression socks to alleviate her symptoms. Upon receiving feedback regarding the immediate impact and relief that her friend experienced, confirming that it was medically recommended for pregnancy and then realizing there was a space for it in the market, in an instant, the very original but much needed idea for Tootsies was born. She decided to create a fun, colorful and fashionable line of compression socks specifically branded for the maternity market.


Jackie was born in Jamaica and moved to The Bahamas at the age of 7. Her athletic career began there at the age of 11 and she earned a full scholarship to Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, where she was a 2-time NCAA champion. She graduated with a degree in Psychology. She also earned a Master's degree in Sport Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in Orinda, CA. She is a NASM certified personal trainer and has a flourishing personal training business in Los Angeles.


Jackie went on to compete in 5 consecutive Olympic Games beginning in Barcelona in 1992 and ending in Beijing in 2008. She competed in a record 9 consecutive World Championships and was ranked as high as 5th in the World.


In 2008, Jackie was one of 7 people inducted into Stanford University's prestigious Athletic Hall of Fame. In 2003, she was named as L'Oreal Cosmetic's Face of a Generation, appearing in ads in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Self, Allure and Lucky magazines. She is also a very powerful international motivational speaker who engages her audience through her athletic experiences. Jackie is extremely passionate and excited to have launched Tootsies Brand, LLC with her 2 business partners Dr. Ross Flowers and Mr. Chris Johnson. She is a healthy lifestyle advocate and so in addition to the sock line, she created Tootsies Fit Club, aimed at encouraging women everywhere to have healthy pregnancies by providing them with exercise and nutritional information. She hopes that by sharing her experiences in the athletic world, Tootsies will help moms and moms-to-be not only look good, but feel great!
