Craig Koniver MD Introduces Innovative IV Nutrient Therapy for Athletes

Charleston, SC (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

The ultimate challenge for consumers is to find real health information. Stories and articles are shared every day regarding nutrition, diets, and supplements. These “factual” stories change every day (one day eating fats is in, the next day it’s out) and it is hard for the consumer to decide which is correct. This is particularly true for athletes of all types: from weekend warriors to professional athletes as the quest to understand how to optimize health and performance is daunting.

This quest is what motivates, Craig Koniver MD, an Organic Medicine Specialist, who sticks to science and common sense. While many see “medicine” or “fad diet” options as the solution to their problems, Dr. Koniver instead truly helps patients, including athletes, optimize their health and performance through natural means.

But finally, after fifteen years of working on several different natural health modalities, Dr. Koniver has created one that makes people feel different, better, more alive….immediately. The results truly showcase how one can optimize their health and performance naturally.

Dr. Koniver, whose practice is based in Charleston, SC, has recently launched FastVitaminIV™, an innovative Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy initially designed for athletes to optimize their performance and health. FastVitaminIV™ allows athletes to receive the critical nutrients needed to fuel their muscles, cells and brain in a matter of minutes. FastVitaminIV™ programs are currently being developed for ‘non-athletes’ as well who can benefit from Dr. Koniver’s innovative means of IV Nutrient Therapy.

“IV Nutrient Therapy is the only direct method of getting vitamins, amino acids, minerals and other nutrients into the bloodstream quickly,” stated Dr. Koniver. “It takes no work on the part of the digestive system which is crucial as it is estimated that over 83% of the nutrients taken by mouth never get absorbed.”

Now, for the first time, athletes of any level can get all of those essential nutrients quickly, efficiently and without any concern of contaminating substances. Without these nutrients, it becomes very difficult for athletes to perform at their highest level. The result is that “extra edge” that so many athletes are looking for.

“Beyond all of the necessary exercise and practice it takes an athlete to train his or her body to compete, the muscles and cells absolutely require certain key nutrients to work at the highest efficiency,” added Dr. Koniver.

Each FastVitaminIV™ contains only sterile nutrients, is PED-free and takes three minutes to administer. FastVitaminIVs™ are administered as a “push” because speed is crucial when it comes to nutrients entering into one’s system. The faster they enter, the more immediate and longer lasting results occur. This is a breakthrough in health performance.

The benefits include being more focused, feeling more energetic, greater ability to lose weight, optimal athletic workouts, higher levels of endurance, improved memory to name a few.

Dr. Koniver recently traveled to Los Angeles to introduce the new FastVitaminIV™ to a select number of Olympic and Professional Athletic Trainers and other fitness enthusiasts. There are currently FastVitaminIV™ programs being created for both collegiate and professional sports teams with the goal to help individual athletes and teams compete at the highest level.

“It is exciting to see athletes really being able to be true peak performers by utilizing FastVitaminIV™ and helping them achieve these very high levels of success is gratifying,” added Dr. Koniver.

Training Like the Pros: World Patent Marketing Introduces a Mobile App Invention that Beats Any Other Basketball Workout Experience


New York, New York (PRWEB) March 15, 2015

World Patent Marketing, the world’s fastest growing patent, idea protection and inventor services organization, has released a state-of-the-art mobile app invention that is considerably better than any other basketball workout experience in terms of drills and training. This mobile app invention can be used by any and all basketball players – regardless of level and skill.

“The Sport Tracker Elite is a mobile app invention that replaces expensive trainers and coaches.” says Scott Cooper, CEO and Creative Director of World Patent Marketing, “Basketball players will now be able to have access to world-class trainers and exhaustive training sessions whenever they please. This mobile app invention can be a one-person training camp which is far better than expensive, commercial basketball training camps.”

One of the hardest basketball training camps in the market is a basketball workout experience offered by a major sporting goods manufacturer. This camp is aimed at non-professional athletes who want to experience the same level of training that professional athletes undergo on top of their team training sessions. The participants experience what professionals do on a daily basis even before they go to team practices.

The Sport Tracker Elite is a mobile app invention that configures a set of exercises and drills which the user follows. These exercises and drills can be pre-set, as well as customized to match the athlete’s skill or aim. Besides telling the user what to do, it also allows for the monitoring and logging of hours and activities during the practice. Although it was designed for basketball, and can come pre-installed with more common basketball exercises, it can also be customized for the use of other sports. The exercises themselves are for individual use, much like what professional athletes do.

“The Sport Tracker Elite makes it easier for anyone to strictly follow a sports drill,” says inventor Jared S. “This is like having your own personal trainer, as you can hear the instructions with the hands-free operation of the app. But perhaps the best thing about this invention is that it is an affordable alternative to other drills, and allows an individual to work on his own while keeping track of his progress.”

“It is not everyday that an exercise monitoring and trainer is included in one mobile app invention,” says Sean, a sports blogger from Portland. “This mobile app invention is a powerful motivation and instructional tool. It can be used in other sports as well.”

World Patent Marketing says the Sport Tracker Elite mobile app invention is based on several simple ideas: it should be hands free to allow unobstructed movement; it should be cheap; it should allow the individual user to log in track his improvements.

CreateWriteNow Introduces 21 Days Declutter Your Life Journaling Challenge


Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 12, 2015

CreateWriteNow has just announced launch of the 21 Days Declutter Your Life Journaling Challenge, a new 21-day program that uses the power of journaling to address clutter in the home, scheduled to begin Sunday, March 1st, 2015.

Aimed at helping participants adjust behaviors that lead to disorganization and clutter in the first place, the course uses daily journaling exercises to get to the heart of related personal issues and psychological roadblocks—and offers alternative ways to think about cleanup and organization on a day-to-day basis.

Developed by Mari L. McCarthy, journaling therapy specialist and founder of CreateWriteNow, the 21 Days Declutter Your Life Journaling Challenge is modeled after 27 Days of Journaling to Health & Happiness, the company’s most successful program to date, now in its sixth year.

Through a series of daily journaling exercises and prompts, participants are encouraged to explore personal habits and patterns of behavior, strengths and weaknesses, and to develop fresh goals that more closely align actions with personal priorities, and tackle organization in small steps.

In addition to daily writing exercises, the program’s related eWorkbook offers helpful suggestions and tips, while an optional Facebook group provides a platform for interaction with other participants as well as encouragement and support delivered by Mari McCarthy herself.

Said McCarthy, “Physical clutter creates mental clutter. And for many, clutter turns our home environment into a source of stress rather than what it should be—a place of refuge. Of course your journal can’t do the actual decluttering for you! But it can help individuals adjust their behavior, let go of the past, and create a new path to a more orderly future.”

Added McCarthy, “The program is an ideal course for experienced journalers ready to use journaling as a tool for organization, self transformation and growth. Those who are truly prepared to make a commitment to a daily, pen-to-page journaling practice will reap the greatest rewards.”

The 21 Days Declutter Your Life Journaling Challenge is provided free of charge to participants. The related eWorkbook—and a pen!—is all that is needed to take part. The eWorkbook can be purchased in the CreateWriteNow store

(http://store.createwritenow.com/21-days-declutter-your-life-journaling-challenge/) and is available as an eBook as well as other formats including an audio book and downloadable versions for iPad, Kindle, NOOK and Sony Reader.

About CreateWriteNow

CreateWriteNow teaches individuals how to use the power of daily journaling to achieve self-discovery, personal transformation and perfect health. Founded by Mari L. McCarthy, who has used the power of daily journaling herself to overcome many of the debilitating effects of Multiple Sclerosis, the company publishes regular articles, journaling prompts, videos and eBooks and holds a number of interactive journaling challenges throughout the year.

North American Seminars introduces ” Making Sense of Neck Pain”, An OT and PT Continuing Education Course Presented in New Jersey, Illinois and Indiana in 2015


Franklin, TN (PRWEB) January 31, 2015

This one day intermediate level PT continuing education course blends home study training from a professionally filmed and mastered DVD with online PT continuing education course access with face to face interactive instruction and hands on lab sessions. The course has been carefully designed to maximize the learning experience by combining the self-paced online/DVD home study material with a focused hands-on training session in the classroom.

Managing patients with neck pain can be confusing and frustrating for novice and experienced clinicians alike. In this hybrid self-study and one-day intermediate-level seminar, Dr. Durall will provide a systematic and integrative approach that demystifies the screening and treatment process, reduces frustration, and most importantly helps clinicians manage neck disorders with greater confidence and proficiency. Treatment-based classification and a novel algorithm are used as the course framework to streamline clinical decision making and care planning. Examination techniques and strategies that are introduced are straightforward and supported by research and clinical experience. Numerous intervention strategies are covered including mobilization & manipulation, therapeutic exercise, and directionally-specific exercise to provide clinicians with a diverse array of options to help optimize functional ability. Recent advances in cervico-thoracic spine research are integrated throughout the course to provide clinicians with new insights and rationale for decision making. Several special rehabilitation topics pertaining to the cervical spine will be covered including cervicogenic headaches and whiplash-associated disorders. Participants can expect to refine and advance their clinical skills in a supportive and relaxed learning environment. Hands-on lab time is incorporated throughout the course to promote immediate clinical application.

As an intermediate-level PT OT continuing education course on neck pain, it is expected that participants are familiar with the fundamental components of the cervical spine examination (e.g. ROM assessment, manual muscle testing, palpation, etc.). Thus these foundational skills are not covered. This course is intended for Physical Therapists although it may be suitable for Occupational Therapists, PTAs, or OTAs with strong orthopedic backgrounds.

PT OT Continuing Education Course Objectives


Perform select orthopedic special tests of the cervical-thoracic region to rule out specific disorders and to formulate differential diagnoses.
Identify signs and symptoms of vertebral artery dysfunction, upper cervical spine instability, or cervical myelopathy that warrant referral to another healthcare provider.
Recognize patients at risk for long-term disability.
Classify neck disorders, based on examination findings, for purposes of care planning and intervention decision-making.
Perform thrust and non-thrust manual therapy techniques to the thoracic spine, 1st rib, or cervical spine.
Select and implement appropriate intervention techniques for patients with arm symptoms in association with neck pain.
Formulate evidence-based therapeutic exercise programs to improve dynamic stabilization of the cervico-thoracic spine.
Identify and manage patients with cervicogenic headaches.
Differentiate cervicogenic headaches from other types of headaches.
Manage patients with acute neck pain (e.g. whiplash-associated disorder).
Identify treatments available for myofascial neck pain.
Adjust the treatment emphasis for patients with sub-acute or chronic neck pain.
Select and implement standardized functional performance instruments to assess patient outcome success.
Integrate current evidence on the cervico-thoracic spine into clinical practice.

This course will be presented at:

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center located in Englewood, NJ on May 1 2015

Vital Rehabilitation located in Chicago, IL on May 15 2015

Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital located in Indianapolis, IN on September 18 2015

Saint Peters Hospital located in New Brunswick, NJ on September 26 2015

Vacuworx Introduces New Octapad Slab System and Hydraulic Barrier Lifter At World of Concrete


(PRWEB) February 03, 2015

Vacuworx, the pioneer of vacuum lifting technology in North America, introduced two new products today at World of Concrete in Las Vegas that provide faster, safer, smarter concrete slab lifting and highway barrier placement.

Vacuworx Lifting Systems have been used successfully for a variety of commercial applications, including manufacturing processes, oil/gas drilling, and pipeline and highway construction. While the Vacuworx RC Series of Lifters have been widely used in vacuum material handling and construction using a single vacuum pad attached to a lifter, there was a need in highway and bridge construction to lift deteriorated concrete slabs from roadways and bridges. As a result, Vacuworx designed and manufactured an eight-pad attachment to its existing line of RC Series Vacuum Lifters appropriately named the Octapad System.

Each pad has its own vacuum valve, allowing a pad to be shut off when it’s directly on top of a pothole or a crack. This creates more vacuum to other opened pads for concrete slab lifting] from a road or bridge and to placement in a truck for removal without re-handling by workers. Octapad can lift reinforced slabs up to 6’ wide x 12’ long x 12” thick and weighing up to 16,588 lbs.

The second product introduced at World of Concrete is the Hydraulic Barrier Lifter that Vacuworx specially designed to improve safety and bolster productivity for construction contractors, governmental authorities, security agencies and military personnel tasked with installing, moving and lifting concrete road barriers.

The Vacuworx Hydraulic Barrier Lifter attaches to excavators and/or backhoes and has a quick coupler and quick hydraulic fittings kit for easy installation on the host vehicle. It can lift 8’, 10’, 12’, and 16’ concrete barriers and was designed with rotational capability for precise maneuvering in confined spaces during road, bridge and highway construction. The Hydraulic Barrier Lifter weighs 950 lbs.; has 9,000 lbs. lift capacity; and features elastomer grips to provide contact with a barrier without marking or damaging the barrier.

These new products were the direct result of listening to customers and fulfilling the Vacuworx charter of developing faster, safer, smarter solutions.

“It’s all about taking care of people,” Vacuworx Founder and President Bill Solomon said. “Like all of our products, the Octapad System and Hydraulic Barrier Lifter takes workers out of harms way and provides a safer and more efficient way to lift concrete slabs and barriers, eliminating the need for air or hydraulic hammers, drills, hooks, chains, cables, slab buckets and without the dust and noise that customarily results in the process.”

World of Concrete, Feb. 3-6, Las Vegas, with over 1,400 exhibitors in 674,000 sq. ft., is the industry’s only annual international event dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries showcasing leading industry suppliers featuring innovative products, construction machinery, construction equipment, safety training courses and new technologies.

Vacuworx is a 15-year-old company that designs and manufactures vacuum lifting systems and hydraulic lifters for worldwide distribution from its Tulsa facility. Vacuworx is also the founder of The Pipeline and Energy Expo and Eagle Gift Foundation, both in Tulsa.
