Restoring Your Strength With Chil Wellness

Restoring Your Strength With Chil Wellness

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.

Changing your views on how life works with Corinna Stoeffl

Changing your views on how life works with Corinna Stoeffl

November 1, 2019

 

CORINNA_STOEFFL_HI_RES_2_.jpeg

 

Corinna Stoeffl, a counsellor, life coach, photographer, author and Right Voice for You facilitator joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Personal Development Channels. An Access Consciousness facilitator and mother of two, Corinna's diverse career path has equipped her with a unique skill set, incredible sense of self-awareness and wisdom, which she shares with her clients, and children.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Corinna Stoeffl discuss the following:

  1. If we are dealing with a change in our life like losing a job, changing jobs, moving house, getting married, becoming a parent, getting divorced, someone dying, what would be your advice to offer someone feeling overwhelmed in this time of transition in their lives?
  2. How can we use questions to look at things from different angles when facing big changes?
  3. Why is it important to get the support for ourselves from a Right Voice coach like yourself, in making choices and actualizing possibilities so you can create the life you love during a time of change?
  4. What happens when you have someone around you who offers no judgement of what your life should be like to support you through a time of change?
  5. What would be one easy to use and effective tool that you can use in any situation to have more clarity and ease when working with change in our lives?

Corinna Stoeffl has a Masters in Counseling and has worked several thousand hours as a life coach with people to create the change they desired. Corinna Stoeffl is fascinated with words and language. It is important to her that the meaning of the word is reflected in the way it is used. She enjoys the conversations where both are able to let go of their respective points of view and explore a subject by looking at it from a variety of different angles. She loves to ‘philosophize’. In her view, the way we use words reflects on the relationships we have with others, as well as the relationship we have with ourselves. The words we use can give us so much information in that regard.

As a facilitator of Right Voice for You, a specialty program of Access Consciousness®, Corinna loves to support others, especially artists and small business owners to find their voices, to express what is important to them.
