Back To Health Family Chiropractic Announces Tips for Building Natural Immunity Defense Against Colds, Flu | Reuters - 28 Apr 2016 19:17

[[html]]FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — With colder winter months around the corner, Back To Health Family Chiropractic announced tips for building natural immunity strength and reducing the risk for colds and flu. Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin and certified health coach Nancy Michlin <a href="http://henryhafi654blog.blogzet.com/the-smart-trick-of-find-a-chiropractor-that-nobody-is-discussing-127959">school of chiropractic medicine</a> recommend Atlas adjustments for eliminating nervous system interference and boosting immunity. Eating a diet rich in green leafy vegetables, minerals like zinc, herbs like Echinacea, onion and garlic can help increase natural immunity, says Nancy Michlin. Dr. Chris Michlin and Nancy Michlin also advise the addition of smart stress management to protect the immune system and regularly washing hands with natural soaps.<br><br>Cold and flu season is underway in Fort Worth, Texas, and the team at Back To Health Family Chiropractic announced they are working closely with patients to naturally strengthen their immune system and reduce the likelihood for getting sick.<br><br>A healthy immune system is closely connected with a healthy nervous system and musculoskeletal system, said Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin. Thats why I tell patients that the first step to boosting natural immunity is to ensure the spine is correctly aligned. When the <a href="http://liamjyuv735blog.blogminds.com/getting-my-what-do-chiropractors-do-to-work-134988">training in the usa</a> spine is out of alignment, nerve irritation can adversely affect the bodys ability to communicate between the brain and organs, weakening the immune system. I recommend Atlas (the top bone in the spine) orthogonal chiropractic adjustments for bringing correct alignment back to the spine and supporting whole body health.<br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://oakridgechiropractor.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Chiropractor-in-Oak-Ridge-Tn2.jpg" width="345" /><br><br>In addition to chiropractic adjustments, the clinic offers whole body wellness programs to help patients build healthy immune systems from the inside out. During the holiday season, its tempting to overindulge in unhealthy treats, said Nancy Michlin. As a certified health coach, I work with patients to help them find a natural balance in their diet. I recommend patients integrate supplements like garlic to their homemade soups, stews and sauces. Garlic has been used for over 5,000 years for its natural antibiotic properties, says the health coach.<br><br>Nancy Michlin also provides quality health coaching through their sister company, Back To Health 4 Life!, which features the Get on B.A.S.E.! (Breathe! Act! Eat! Smile!) wellness program. Fighting back against holiday stress is also important, since chronic stress will weaken the immune system, said Nancy Michlin. We help patients positively manage stress and reset their sympathetic nerve system with chiropractic care, nutritional counseling and natural remedies.<br><br>Back To Health Family Chiropractic provides comprehensive chiropractic services, drug-free pain relief, injury rehabilitation and wellness <a href="http://tylerprdk874blog.thezenweb.com/Not-known-Factual-Statements-About-chiropractic-degree-705132">is chiropractor a doctor</a> care.

Marketing & Advertising :: Selfie advertising: is this the next big thing? - 20 Apr 2016 11:35

Tags:

[[html]]Todays technology means we can live fast-paced lives filled with things to do and pictures to take. But did you know that the selfies are now the norm? People wont go anywhere without their phones and the ability to take a selfie and post it online. In fact, it is so normal that we dont even question it when our friend posts a hundred pictures of themselves online. Now, your business can actually use selfies to advertise. Selfie advertising may just be the next best way to reach out to new customers.<br><br>Kind of like word of mouth<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/nX8u6hVCU9k&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/nX8u6hVCU9k&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>We already know the most effective way to get new customers is through word of mouth advertising. And if a picture is worth a thousand words, then youll be getting a lot out by advertising through images. One way to do this is through an ad campaign where you offer a prize for the best selfie including your image in it, or something to that extent. Posting these on social media will mean you have engaged current customers (which is always something to strive for), and all their friends get a chance to see your product. Even if you offer a <a href="http://www.2tsa.com/tag/maryland-temp-jobs/">my company</a> service rather than a product, you can still offer a prize based on selfies using a hashtag with your company name in it. As a growing portion of your customer base is taking selfies and watching each other on the internet, youll be able to reach out to more of your audience than ever before.<br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://www.mylocalbusinessonline.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/yelp-business-reviews1.png?a4047c" width="398" /><br><br>Personal recommendation<br><br>If you see your friends have it, youll want it, and if you already know someone who <a href="http://www.prospace.org/tag/nomadic-real-estate-client-portal/">imp source</a> likes it, you will use it. This is the basic idea behind selfie advertising and showing people what you do and what companies you like to use. This is a powerful tool that is especially useful for pay per call campaigns where affiliates are responsible for finding the customers to call your business. As an affiliate, your job is to find as many new customers are possible for other businesses, and what better way than to actually show off the product or service in a selfie?<br><br>How much <a href="http://www.2tsa.com/tag/maryland-temp-jobs/">company near me</a> longer will it last?<br><br>With some advertising, you only have a short window of opportunity. You may be wondering how much longer people will actually use the selfie. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the selfie may not always be the crazed trend it is now, but it will probably never go away. Weve already gotten too much invested into our pictures and smartphones that make it easier than ever. Even if it isnt the best method of marketing forever (nothing ever is), you will be able to reach a lot of new customers for now.<br><br>Tags: selfie advertising, selfies, marketing selfies, selfie marketing, marketing with selfies, using selfies to market<br><br>&#13;[[/html]] - Comments: 0

CEO Profile: At Goya, it's all in la familia - 13 Mar 2016 04:02

Tags:

[[html]]Bob Unanue and his three brothers grew up mostly in suburban New Jersey speaking English instead of their father's family language, Spanish, and eating their Irish-American mom's meat and potatoes. <br><br>But today, Unanue is as fluent in Spanish as he is in the world of yucca, cactus and chicharrones.<br><br>As CEO of Goya Foods since 2004, the 53-year-old leads the third generation that's running the privately held company. Talkative and alternately serious and dry-witted, Unanue is most passionate when talking about Goya's mission and its customers.<br><br>"We are the nostalgia," says Unanue (pronounced oo-NA-new-way), the eldest of six children. "We welcome the immigrants into the country with food."<br><br>The company fills the pantries, refrigerators and freezers of the growing number of U.S. Hispanic households. It has 3,000 employees, excluding hundreds of sales representatives and truck drivers, and is estimated to generate more than $1 billion in sales per year. It's the USA's largest Hispanic foods company and one of the biggest family-owned companies. <br><br>Goya was started 72 years ago by Prudencio Unanue to give Spanish immigrants authentic ingredients.<br><br>Prudencio Unanue initially sold Spanish condiments in New York until the Spanish Civil War cut off his supplies. By then, he had a wife and four sons to feed, so he began importing "Goya" sardines from a Moroccan cannery. He bought the rights to the Goya name for $1 because it was easier to pronounce than his own name.<br><br>The company's longevity makes Goya a rarity. Just 10% of family-owned businesses reach the third generation, with most failing due to family rivalries, says Joe Astrachan, a management professor and executive director of Cox Family Enterprise Center. The businesses that succeed typically have members who take pride in their mission, as opposed to working only for the money, he says.<br><br>"If you don't have that sense of legacy, it's going to be real hard to get past it," Astrachan says.<br><br>Unanue faced family conflict head-on about five years ago when relations grew strained among board members. An uncle died, and Unanue and his cousin Francisco disagreed with Joseph Prudencio's last surviving son who'd been running the company since 1974 about leadership because they said Joseph had been making decisions without their input. The result drove Bob and Francisco, with the blessing of family shareholders, to oust Joseph and his son Andy from the company.<br><br>That rift has been healed, Unanue says, as family members have settled business matters and reconciled. Joseph will soon return to the Goya board, where he will join Bob and Francisco.<br><br>"There were differences of opinion as to the direction of the company," he says. "Now, we're all on the same page."<br><br>On a day-to-day basis, Unanue runs the company with two brothers and four cousins. <br><br>"We're all hands on," says Peter Unanue, 41, Bob's younger brother who joined Goya almost 11 years ago and oversees Goya's distribution network. Another brother, Tom, runs the Florida operations with their cousin.<br><br>Since the change, Goya has reinvested more profits, Peter Unanue says. Family members and top executives, for instance, recently approved construction of a $26 million facility to expand its reach into central and South Florida, where more Hispanics have been moving.<br><br>Outsiders can practically chart immigration patterns by Goya's growth, which has risen in places such as Columbus, Ohio; Pittsburgh; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; and Moab, Utah.<br><br>As challenging as predicting future growth spots is, though, charting the variety of Hispanic cooking styles is equally difficult. A simple dish of rice <a href="http://www.bing.com/local/details.aspx?lid=YN400x226573835">home office furniture</a> and beans, for instance, varies widely depending on whether it's made by a Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban or Peruvian. Some like black beans, some like red, and some like pink.<br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://office-turn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/executive-vintage-office-furniture-design.jpg" width="387" /><br><br>Purchasing habits are also influenced by the length of time a shopper has lived here. New immigrants often buy a 99-cent bag of dried beans that need to soak for hours to make traditional dishes, while their children, who earn more money, may buy more expensive, ready-to-eat canned beans to save time, Unanue says.<br><br>"As people assimilate, they go to the can," he says.<br><br>Dizzying product range <br><br>To meet divergent needs, Goya sells 1,600 products ranging from bags of rice to ready-to-eat, frozen empanadas, up from 1,100 five years ago. The mix includes 38 varieties of beans alone, including the "powerhouse" frijoles negros favored by Cubans and the recently added mayacobas favored by Peruvians, he says.<br><br>Just as critical as knowing the nuances of each group's taste buds is knowing how to get the products to them.<br><br>Almost daily, Goya drivers deliver cases of products to tens of thousands of U.S. food stores, from supermarket chains in Texas to independent mom-and-pop bodegas in New York City to the Wal-Mart chain. It's a more costly method than dropping off jumbo shipments once a week and letting stores warehouse goods, but it lets Goya offer greater variety and ensure that products match each store's demographics, Peter Unanue says.<br><br>"Pink beans might sell in New York City but not sell as well in Texas or California," Peter Unanue says.<br><br>Astrachan says there's no evidence that Hispanic-run businesses are any different than non-Hispanic businesses, especially at the billion-dollar level. But visitors can immediately sense that Goya is different when they enter its headquarters' surprisingly modest 1970s-era wood-paneled lobby. <br><br>There's no sleek, modern office furniture, high-price artwork, flat-screen TV screens or uniformed security guards. In what could be a symbol for Goya's throwback culture, the lobby instead features portraits of Unanue family members, posters that depict Goya products and two friendly, bilingual receptionists.<br><br>Here, it's still a badge of honor to stay at the company for decades. Rebecca Rodriguez-Llerena, a Goya employee for more than 35 years, for instance, worked her way up to running Goya's Secaucus warehouse, a job her father had when <a href="https://plus.google.com/118386364440880430976/">office furniture sell</a> he retired after 37 years. <br><br>People's desks also look different. They're cluttered with framed photos of babies, relatives and famous Latinos employees have met at Goya functions, such as Latin jazz band leader Tito Puente and pop singer Marc Anthony. Many employees display flags that declare their background, whether Colombian, Dominican or Mexican.<br><br>The culture reflects that most Goya employees are Hispanic and speak Spanish, although neither is a requirement for employment. The familylike culture is intentional, Unanue says.<br><br>"We try to keep a family environment where there's a pride to being a part of this," he says. "And you can feel it."<br><br>Unanue contributes to the atmosphere, regularly buying Dunkin' Donuts coffee for executives and assistants. He also demonstrates uncanny familiarity with longtime employees' lives, often reciting their rsums with dates in detail. Often a joker, Unanue claims he'd never been a history buff but likes it more "as I've become historic."<br><br>At Goya's annual Christmas bashes, he shows his Latin roots by taking his wife, college sweetheart Muriel Fitzpatrick, to <a href="https://www.yellowpagesgoesgreen.org/?page=show&state=MD&id=170357">used office furniture</a> the dance floor and dancing merengue and salsa. He says they took dance lessons when they lived in Puerto Rico, where Unanue ran operations for seven of the years they lived there from 1980 to 1990. <br><br>He says he doesn't take vacations often, but when he does, he'll take his family skiing "to be a cool dad." He enjoys boating, and has a small sailboat in Cape Cod, Mass., where his wife's family lives and the Unanues have a summer home. <br><br>Unanue can be outspoken when he wants to be. When activists in 2006 sponsored "A Day Without An Immigrant," he agreed to be interviewed on CNN about the importance of immigration.<br><br>"Maybe we should have stayed out of the fray, but we see the importance of the immigrant community throughout the country," he says. "If we close our borders, we become less competitive. I think we need to protect our borders, but we are a country of immigrants."<br><br>Unanue and his five younger siblings were raised with the family business. "Our parents were bringing us into the business as we grew," he says. "We really did grow up around the business. It was part of our everyday life."<br><br>His father, Anthony, an engineer by training, exposed his kids to life outside Goya. For a brief stint, the family moved to Maryland where Anthony worked for the federal government. When they returned to New Jersey, however, Anthony started bringing 10-year-old Bob to Goya's packing plant on Saturdays. He says he can still remember the smell of yerba mate, the aromatic tea from Argentina that used to dominate the air.<br><br>His father died at age 48. Some Goya milestones such as the inauguration of the Secaucus plant in 1976 are entwined in his memory with watching his father suffer with leukemia. <br><br>Outside experience <br><br>Like his father, Unanue took time to explore life outside the company. He studied accounting at Merrimack College, a small Catholic college outside Boston, and in the late 1990s, he took about a year off and bought and briefly ran a 1950s-style restaurant in New Jersey. <br><br>"I wanted to do something different," he says. He returned to Goya when family called, asking him to run the Florida operation in 1999. <br><br>Some of his favorite dishes are pink beans made the Puerto Rican way, and tostones, a typical side dish of flattened dried plantains favored by Dominicans. But he adds, "not all of the time."<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/deYQLBRBNxc&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/deYQLBRBNxc&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Though none of his children, ages 9 to 29, work at the company, Unanue is intent on seeing Goya make it to that rare fourth generation someday.<br><br>They could sell out, especially now with the USA's weak dollar. European companies are shopping for bargains in the food industry, he says. And Goya may look attractive, with a debt-free balance sheet, leading market position and double-digit growth last year. But Unanue says the family has no intention of bowing out.<br><br>"Even though it's been 72 years, we're really at the beginning of something," he says.<br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Find out if your doctor takes payments from drug companies - 27 Feb 2016 05:44

[[html]]<img src="http://appliancerepairprosmiami.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Appliance-Repair-Miami-Why-Choose-Us.jpg" width="350" /><br><br>When you walk into your doctors office and see clipboards and <a href="https://discussions.apple.com/people/oceancitymdrepair14?view=profile">advanced appliance repair</a> pens emblazoned with brand names of drugs, do you ever wonder just how much money he or she is getting from pharmaceutical companies? Starting this week, its now just a click away. This Tuesday the federal government under the Physician Payment Sunshine Act, as part of the Affordable Healthcare Act, began to release details of payments from pharmaceutical and medical device makers to doctors and teaching hospitals for promotional speaking, consulting, meals, travel, research, and other activities.<br><br>Why is this important? <br><br>First, research shows these payments influence doctors in their choice of treatments. Second, our national telephone polls have consistently found that a strong majority of consumers are concerned about these cozy relationships and think that drug makers have too much influence on doctors decisions about which drug to prescribe. Our polls have also revealed that the bulk of consumers think doctors should inform their patients about payments theyve received from a company whose drugs they are about to prescribe.<br><br>"A major conflict of interest is at work when a physician has accepted payments from a drug or device-making company whose products he or she then prescribes or implants," says Marvin Lipman, M.D., Consumer Reports senior medical adviser. "The Sunshine Act will be embarrassing to some and infuriating to others, but is an excellent step toward consumer protection." <br><br>Five easy ways to tell if your doctor is taking payments from drug companies.<br><br>How to look up your doctor <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/VR5X66lWFrA&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/VR5X66lWFrA&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>The data, which is being released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Serviceson 546,000 physicians on payments totaling more than $3.5 billion, isnt easily searchable for an individual doctor yet. And, it only includes payments from August to December 2013. But you can search by your doctors name at the siteDollars for Docsrun by Propublica. That site has been tracking pharmaceutical companies payments to doctors for the past four years and includes payment data from 2013 as well.<br><br>What does the data tell you? <br><br>You can find out if your doctor has received payments from a company that makes a medication or device they are recommending for you. It will also reveal how much money they have received. For example, some doctors may <a href="https://www.zotero.org/oceancitymdrepair14">small appliance repairs</a> have received as little as $20 or so for a meal, while others have accepted payments totaling more than $100,000.00. If your doctor has accepted payments, ProPublica offersseveral tipsfor how to discuss the issue with them.<br><br>This article <a href="https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/profiles/html/profileView.do?key=eb1e239e-86af-458c-8428-7b755a855a9e&lang=en">fridge regas</a> and related materials are made possible by a grant from the state Attorney General Consumer and Prescriber Education Grant Program, which is funded by the multistate settlement of consumer-fraud claims regarding the marketing of the prescription drug Neurontin (gabapentin).<br><br>Copyright 2005-2014 Consumers Union of U.S., Inc.
