  • What type of diseases or disorders do you most commonly treat?
  • How do you assess new patients or go about uncovering what you described as underlying causes of pain?
  • What results have you seen in your patients? 

  • In your mind, what are the most common misconceptions about Holistic/alternative health treatments?
  • What advice would you give folks about their everyday health choices?

Dr. Spatharakis’ post-graduation education has taken him all over the country where he has amassed over 1400 hours of Basic Applied Kinesiology courses. He has learned from several instructors including founding members George J. Goodheart, David Leaf, Louis Boven, Al Zatkin, and has been personally mentored by Daniel H.

Gai-Williams_small-233x300.png

 

Gai Williams, an Australian pharmacist, international author and a partner in a business called Willby's Wind and Colic which provides help, support, advice and natural solutions to new moms whose newborn babies are suffering the debilitating effects of wind, colic and reflux joins eHealth Radio and the Children's Health and Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Gai Williams discuss the following:

  • What prompted you to change from the community pharmacy to your new business Willby;s Wind and Colic?
  • What is colic, what causes it and how long does it last?
  • How does your Willby's product differ from other commercially available products on pharmacy shelves?
  • How did your book No More Tears Colic Relief come about?
  • I believe you have a free advice service associated with your business - tell us about that.

 

Gai Williams, B. Pharm., A.F.A.I.P.M., is an entrepreneurial Australian pharmacist and author of the book “No More Tears Colic Relief”.

During her extensive pharmacy career, she has gathered experience from a multitude of business and pharmacy seminars and pioneered many pharmacy firsts. Twice she has offered her pharmacy premises to be the flagship for new pharmacy concepts, she has become a barista to install a Gloria Jean’s Coffees franchise within her pharmacy and established Pharm-A-Temp which was the first independent fee for service pharmacy locum business in Victoria.

Her passion for pharmacy began when she was employed as a Saturday morning girl in her local pharmacy and the desire to make a difference in the pharmacy world has never waned. She believes in offering the best products and advice possible and her search for excellence has culminated in her first published book about baby colic relief –a condition which affects 40% of babies and about which there has been little information until now.

Gai’s professional pharmacy career has been enhanced along the way by receiving awards such as an associate fellowship of the Australian Institute of Pharmacy Management, a finalist berth in the Telstra Business Women’s Awards in 2000 and her achievement of becoming the first female chairperson of Guardian Pharmacies Australia.

She has been a speaker at many pharmacy courses and business conferences and continues to investigate every possibility to enhance the competitive retail health market.

Gai is committed to making a difference in the healthcare of her patients and believes that the community pharmacy model in Australia is the best in the world.

Her belief in making a difference and giving back has resulted in a lifetime commitment to parent committees during her children’s education and a leadership role as President of the Boronia Chamber of Commerce – a position she held for many years. She has also served as a business representative on many Knox Council committees. She is also the current Vice Chair of the Board of Mt Evelyn & Districts Financial Services which oversees the running of both the Mt Evelyn and Montrose branches of the Bendigo Community Bank network.

Gai is still a practicing pharmacist and, with her business partner Greg, has established Willby’s Wind and Colic –Australia’s only destination hotline for mums needing support, advice and treatment solutions for their babies suffering from the debilitating effects of wind, colic and reflux. Calls and emails are answered by a pharmacist with at least 15 years of experience in the wind and colic space so mums are always receiving the best expert advice.

Unexplained Eye Pain: The Causes, the Problems and the Treatment

February 28, 2017

PR-headShot_good.jpg

 

Dr. Perry Rosenthal, a pioneering ophthalmologist and founder/director of the Boston Eye Pain Foundation joins eHealth Radio and the Eye Health and Health News Channels. 

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Perry Rosenthal discuss the following:

  • Since, as you have said, symptoms of dry eye are actually a special type of eye pain, how do you explain why so many people constantly complain of having dry eyes even though their eyes are not dry? .  Why does this occur?
  • You've written that LASIK surgery is one of the prime causes of persistent dry eye symptoms in eyes that are not really dry.  How is this explained?
  • I assume the LASIK industry is not happy that you're talking about this.  What kind of pushback have you experienced from them?
  • Why did you start the Boston EyePain Foundation?
  • Is there any hope for people with devastating dry eye symptoms whose eyes seem to have adequate tears?

 

SUMMARY: If you're going to have LASIK, be aware of all the potential risks, including devastating eye pain which, while it affects only a small percentage of people who have had LASIK, is a real issue.

 

Perry Rosenthal, MD, founder of the nonprofit Boston EyePain Foundation, specialized in ophthalmology through the residency program of Harvard’s Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. As a resident, he founded the Infirmary’s first Contact Lens Service at the “suggestion” of Professor Edwin P Dunphy, then chair of the Department of Ophthalmology and a visionary who understood the potential of hard contact lenses to improve vision impaired by corneal diseases. Dr. Rosenthal quickly discovered that the usefulness of first generation commercial contact lenses was severely limited by blocking corneal access to oxygen needed to support their metabolism. In effect, these devices asphyxiated the corneas while they were worn. The solution was obvious and Rosenthal co-founded Polymer Technology to develop rigid contact lens plastics that ‘breathed” and compatible solutions known as the Boston Lens™ products. The company was subsequently acquired by Bausch & Lomb.
