Can Your Fingers Detect Your Risk of Heart Disease? Oct 24, 2014 03:30AM

Calgary, AB (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

Heart disease remains the number one killer in Canada and the most costly disease in the country. All too often, Canadians are falling victim to heart attack or stroke with little or no warning signs.

"Relying on traditional risk factors like high blood pressure and cholesterol levels to identify patients at risk for heart attack just isn't working," says Diamond Fernandes, director of Calgary's Heart Fit Clinic. "In fact, most of us have heard stories about people dying of a heart attack just months after getting a clean bill of health from the doctor. The reality is, while useful, traditional primary risk factors have proven insufficient to accurately identify heart attack and stroke risk," says Fernandes. Cardiac stress tests have been done for over fifty years and continue to miss patients with heart disease. The stress test is only good for showing advanced stages of coronary artery disease.

But new technology is helping to change that. The Heart Fit Clinic is the first in Alberta and one of the first in Canada to introduce the Endothelial Function Test (EFT), a non-invasive procedure that can predict and help prevent heart disease.

Monitors are placed on the patient's fingers and then blood pressure cuffs are used to regulate blood flow. The EFT accurately checks the health of the endothelium, the all-important lining of arterial blood vessels.

The Endothelial Function Assessment predicts the likelihood of suffering a heart attack long before the event can happen – years in advance. "Having this information is vital," says Diamond. "Looking at cholesterol levels alone can't give you this head start or the most accurate data about your heart. The Endothelial Function Test can actually measure a person's risk of developing risk factor symptoms."

Through the EFT results, the Heart Fit Clinic can determine whether patients need to make more aggressive lifestyle changes, begin a medication therapy to reduce risk of a heart disease, or whether their condition is so serious it requires immediate attention from a medical specialist.

The EFT costs $295.00 and takes an hour to complete, including a consultation with Heart Fit Clinic as well as the educational heart health DVD program (valued at $197). A physician referral is not required to take this test.

Calgary cardiologists are great at dealing with patients who are high risk; if patients are not high risk they may get dismissed. The Heart Fit Clinic is Calgary's cardiac rehabilitation and heart attack and stroke prevention clinic, helping people prevent and reverse heart disease.

Wellness Uprising Offers Safe, Natural, Effective Solutions for Today's Health Concerns Oct 24, 2014 03:30AM

Grants Pass, Oregon (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

Wellness Uprising is dedicated to the thesis that every living organism on this planet had the ability to enjoy perfect health - long before the big chemical and drug companies lobbied (paid) their way into the controls of the FDA and EPA. Pell believes that, contrary to drug company ads, using your body in the way it was designed is the best way to pay the "premium" for true, universal healthcare.

The information provided will help people to ask their doctors good questions. The thinking is: Good questions should lead to better answers. Better answers should generate more confidence and more confidence will make it more likely the doctor's recommendations will be effective. It can be win-win-win. However, it's obvoius that the author adamently believes: "learning when to say 'No' to your doctor can be a lifesaving skill."

This book has been very well recieved from many in the medical community:

"Wellness Uprising is a compelling book for our times. It speaks the unvarnished truth. No matter how much you already know about health and wellness, this book gives you practical tools to live more healthfully."
-Janet Levatin, MD

"Wellness Uprising empowers readers to awaken from the hypnotic trance the Western medical model has them in."
-Steven Rotter, MD

"The U.S. medical establishment has created a conventional wisdom that drug-oriented medicine is the best form of medicine. Rob Pell intelligently challenges that "wisdom."
-Michael T. Murray, ND

The internet, magazines, and doctors offer health solutions that tell us what supposedly works. Over the last two decades, thousands of real live customers at the author's health food store have shared their health success stories confirming what really works.

Ware Academy Named a Virginia Naturally School For Second Year In A Row Oct 24, 2014 03:30AM

Gloucester, Va. (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

Ware Academy is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, it was named a Virginia Naturally School. This honor recognizes Ware Academy's efforts to increase environmental awareness and stewardship of its students during the 2013-2014 academic year. Ware Academy was one of only 52 schools in the state to receive the recognition this year, and one of only two independent schools selected.

Virginia Naturally Schools is the official environmental education school recognition program for the state of Virginia and is administered by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

To earn the Virginia Naturally recognition, Ware Academy had to showcase administrative support for conservation and environmental education programs; high quality professional development that supports integrating conservation and environmental education into the classroom; resource conservation on campus; field and hands on experiences for the students; library and equipment resources dedicated to conservation and environmental education; outdoor classrooms and community support.

Ware Academy's academic programming includes conservation and environmental learning at all grade levels, from pre-school to middle school.

Among the many programs at Ware Academy that led to the award are the following:

1. Middle School students participated in an annual weekend excursion trip to Northern Virginia. During the 2013-2014 school year, the sixth grade class assembled two floating turtle platforms for the pond located on the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center property. The manmade pond was lacking sufficient areas for the turtles to bask in the sun and warm their cold-blooded bodies. Without these platforms, the turtles were forced to seek an area to "sunbathe" on the banks of the pond, which made them more susceptible to predation.

2. Ware Academy's eighth grade class participated in an annual week-long excursion trip exploring the Chesapeake Bay watershed each spring. The class traveled to northern Pennsylvania to explore the headwaters of the Susquehanna River. In conjunction with the USGS Northern Appalachian Research Lab, the class conducted stream surveys and studied the freshwater mussel population. Students gained an understanding of various environmental components within the watershed that contribute to some of the environmental problems in the Chesapeake Bay.

3. Continuing a project that began last year, students during the 2013-2014 school year monitored the activity of a female wren who inhabited a bluebird station on campus. The entire school community watched via webcam as she built her nest.

4. As residents of the water rich Tidewater Region, second grade students participated in a field exploration program at a local oyster farm. There, the students examined the importance and contributions of Chesapeake Bay species. Upon returning to the classroom, students were challenged to create and test a water filtration system that would perform as well as the oyster's natural system that they had observed in the field.

5. Students and faculty at Ware Academy continued their support of the school-wide recycling program with middle school students also participating in bi-annual roadside cleanup efforts on a main thoroughfare adjacent to Ware Academy.

6. Students in the Lower School participated in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's annual bay grass restoration project. Students germinated and cultivated wild celery (native submersed aquatic vegetation). The mature plants were then transplanted into a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay.

Looking forward with the hopes of being selected as a Virginia Naturally School for a third year in a row, the Middle School students have already been exploring various water quality testing components, in addition to, developing an aquaponics based system in the school greenhouse. Teachers in the lower grades are anxious to expose their students to the fundamental components of this system. In order to achieve this goal, teachers have reached out to a local aquaponics farm, which currently employs a variety of systems within their greenhouses to grow produce for local markets and restaurants.

Ware Academy plans to utilize this farm to help educate its students in sustainable agriculture.

Lessons will be devised to enrich the field experience once the students return to the classroom.

Teachers are also planning to expand the amount of native milkweed in the school's educational garden. Students will germinate and maintain milkweed plants throughout the school year. The plants will then be used in monarch conservation efforts, which include rearing monarch caterpillars, monitoring their growth, protecting them through maturity, and releasing them prior to their migration south.


Located one mile from Main Street in Gloucester's historic Courthouse district on a 19-acre campus, Ware Academy is a co-ed, independent day school for students in Pre-Kindergarten 3 through eighth grade. Ware Academy empowers each student to achieve academic excellence, emphasizing the development of mind, body and character.

The primary objectives are to educate the whole child to his fullest potential and for students to acquire a respect and a desire for learning in order to develop into independent, life long learners in preparation for productive and fulfilled lives.

Founded in 1949, Ware Academy is a non-profit, non-denominational, non-sectarian school promoting ethnic and racial diversity. Ware Academy selects students on the basis of academic potential and developmental readiness without regard to race, color, creed, or ethnic origin.

Ware Academy is accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools, the National Association of Independent Schools, and the Education Records Bureau and the Secondary School Admissions Test Board. Ware Academy is also a member of the National Middle School Association, the National Junior Honor Society and the Association of Supervision in Curriculum Development.

Local Pet-Owner Wants to Bring Indoor Dog Park to New Hampshire Oct 24, 2014 03:23AM

Rochester, NH (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

One day Jenn Grassi decided to look for an indoor play area for her dog. She searched for several hours and couldn't find one anywhere in the state.

"I found this shocking because the weather here in New Hampshire can be very unpredictable," Grassi said. "We have long, cold, snowy winters and some of the summer days are hot and humid. I need a place where my dog can run around."

The solution is Zoom Room, a franchise that operates in 21 cities around the country. Zoom Room facilities provide dog-owners with an indoor hangout for their pets as well pet training and a retail shop that carries the latest eco-friendly training products. It's also a place where dog-owners can socialize.

Grassi would very much like to bring a Zoom Room franchise to New Hampshire.

"I have a passion for animals, dogs in particular," she said. "Having a career that involves working with dogs has been a dream of mine for quite some time. I have the drive, the passion, and the willingness to put in the hard work that is involved in building a successful business."

What she doesn't have is the start-up capital. Grassi estimates that she'll need about $135,000 for franchising fees, a building lease, insurance, training products and other expenses.

In order to generate this funding, she has launched an Indiegogo campaign, which can viewed at

Donations of any amount are welcome. For a $50 contribution, backers will receive two free group classes and a dog evaluation. For $300, contributors can sign up their dogs for two six-week training workshops. A $1,000 pledge gets the dog-owner one year of free group training sessions.

"As the pet service industry continues to grow and the popularity of dog training grows, my Zoom Room will give the people in my area a place to get their pets the training and exercise they need for a healthy lifestyle," Grassi said. "This will be a great thing for the community and provide a much-needed service where nothing of this kind is available."

For additional information, visit or the Zoom Room website,
