Diet Doc Emphasizes the Dangers of Ineffective Homeopathic Online hCG Diet Drops


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Weight loss is a big business in the United States, raking in billions of dollars via the internet by promoting such products as homeopathic online hCG diet drops. To better understand why homeopathic drugs are ineffective, one must first understand the term, “homeopathic”. Homeopathic simply means that the product has been diluted with other ingredients. Sometimes the original drug is so saturated with other ingredients that there is no evidence of any of the original, intended drug in the product, making it entirely ineffective. And, because the ingredients used to dilute the product is not typically disclosed, patients are exposed to health compromise or drug contraindications. Other advertisements that consumers should pay very close attention include:


    “No prescription necessary”. Human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, is a prescription drug that is obtainable only through a valid doctor order. Doctors who specialize in hCG treatment will ensure that diet plans that are complemented with human chorionic gonadotropin are compatible with nutritional needs, as well as any underlying medical conditions and prescription medications. Any form of this hormone, dispensed by anyone other than a qualified weight loss physician, is ineffective and illegal.
    Many homeopathic online diet drops distributors advertise “Dramatic weight loss in just 7 days”. Although produced naturally by the body, this hormone is very powerful and, when used under medical supervision and in combination with a compatible meal and snack plan, can be effective in generating weight loss, as well as eliminating dieting side effects. There is no research available, however, validating the effectiveness of homeopathic human chorionic gonadotropin diet drops alone.
    Fraudulent companies can be found advertising “No exercise required”. While dieters who are following a medically supervised hCG diet plan are advised against engaging in rigorous exercise, safe and healthy weight loss does require some form of exercise. The patient’s weight loss physician will recommend the form of exercise that best fits the needs and capabilities of each patient.

Diet Doc has earned its reputation by providing their clients safe, effective and pure prescription diet products, all manufactured in the U.S. in fully licensed, FDA approved pharmacies. Each product is accompanied by a third-party Certificate of Analysis, detailing the quality and quantity of the ingredients. Because Diet Doc offers only pure, prescription diet products, consumers will not find their diet products on store shelves and are made available to qualified patients only after a satisfactory consultation with one of the company’s highly trained physicians. During the consult, the doctor will review past medical history, current health conditions and review the entire system to uncover underlying issues that may be preventing weight loss or causing weight gain. These issues will be addressed prior to the doctor making recommendations for the best solution for weight loss.

Diet Doc stands apart from most weight loss companies by standing behind their services and diet products, providing customized diet plans that are individual to each patient’s personal needs, supervising each patient’s weight loss journey with scheduled weekly checkup calls, incorporating only 100% pure prescription diet products and offering unlimited access to a team of doctors, nurses, nutritionists and coaches throughout each patient’s journey. This level of personal attention and support is unparalleled by the competition and has made Diet Doc a leader in the weight loss industry.

Diet Doc urges those who are desperate to lose unhealthy and embarrassing excess fat, and who are tempted to buy homeopathic online human chorionic gonadotropin diet drops, to call the experts prior to making a decision that could result in serious health compromise.

About the Company:

Diet Doc Weight Loss is the nation’s leader in medical, weight loss offering a full line of prescription medication, doctor, nurse and nutritional coaching support. For over a decade, Diet Doc has produced a sophisticated, doctor designed weight loss program that addresses each individual specific health need to promote fast, safe and long term weight loss.

ImmunExcel Now Available on Popular Online Health and Wellness Retailer RonnieColemanNutrition.com

(PRWEB) March 17, 2015

ImmunExcel™, a powerful supplement that helps the body achieve optimal levels of immune system health, is now available direct to the customers of Ronnie Coleman Nutrition, a popular online marketplace for bodybuilders, athletes and active individuals.

The supplement is an advanced homeopathic formula with ingredients that help support the body’s ability to recover quickly, fight against free radicals and promote overall better health and immunity. ImmunExcel is gluten free and also incorporates herbal and nutritional base ingredients that help individuals prevent illnesses before they get sick in the first place.

“We are very pleased to announce that RonnieColemanNutrition.com will carry our exceptional supplement, which is helping bodybuilders battle illnesses and perform at their absolute best,” said Jeff Orphanos, managing director of ImmunExcel. “This is a great partnership, as the individuals who shop Ronnie Coleman Nutrition are in great need of a solution like the one we provide. We look forward to seeing the impact we can have on this platform.”

ImmunExcel has been developed for athletes and active people who regularly push their bodies to the limit, something that can lead to reduced immune system health. Each capsule contains a proprietary blend of Bovine Colostrum, Vitamin C, Echinacea Purpurea and Golden Seal. The highly concentrated formula gives the body the support it needs to better prepare for periods of elevated physical exertion and recover more quickly after an intense workout.

The supplement works by addressing the immune system, the body’s first defense against infections, disease and other invaders that make people sick. Large amounts of physical activity can, at times, decrease the body’s immune function, and athletes tend to be more susceptible to illnesses up to 72 hours after a workout. Bodybuilders and individuals training for marathons and triathlons are particularly vulnerable to these issues.

“Athletes are known for their dedication, but few place enough focus on the state of their immune system health,” said Orphanos. “Being sick can have a very negative impact on your training routine, so it’s best to engage in sound prevention through a highly effective supplement.”

ImmunExcel has become a key aspect of athlete’s routines across the United States and around the world. To learn more about the supplement and to purchase it through Ronnie Coleman Nutrition, visit http://www.ronniecolemannutrition.com/index.phproute=product/product&product_id=2197.

Axonom 2D Visual CPQ To Power Online Design and Orders for Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 17, 2015

Axonom, a global provider of cloud-based configure-price-quote and visual product configuration software, today announces Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com replaces its database-driven configurator for a 2D visual product configurator powered by Powertrak. The replacement in configuration systems meets the growing demand for visualization in the ordering process, and is expected to boost user adoption, improve engagement, and enhance the customer experience.

Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com, a manufacturer and distributor of quality commercial and residential mailboxes, recognized the need to improve its product configuration system. The company began an extensive search to replace its legacy configurator with one that demonstrated a robust rules engine, supported compelling visual renderings, enabled drag-and-drop capabilities, and proved to be scalable and flexible.

“A few years ago, guiding customers through a series of set questions on a public-facing website was industry practice for mailbox configurations,” said Mark Eu at Salsbury Industries. “Today’s customer expects a better, more intuitive, visual ordering experience. To meet that expectation, we are offering a comprehensive, user-friendly mailbox configuration system that simplifies the ordering process, embraces designing and mailbox door placement, displays two-dimensional visual renderings, and a 100% assurance that configurations meet USPS guidelines.”

Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com selected Powertrak 2D Visual Product Configurator, hosted on Axonom’s SaaS offering, NetPRM, as a stand-alone product with no immediate integration into in-house software. “We found that Axonom had an offering that met our current and future needs, and the positive cultural fit between companies was also a factor in our decision making process,” added Mark Eu.

According to Mark Eu, the company expects to see major improvements to its user adoption and CPQ processes with Powertrak. “We now have a user-friendly and visually-driven design, quote, and checkout solution available on our website for anyone interested in custom designing particular mailboxes.”

Embedded in the Mailboxes.com website, users will be able to launch the mailbox configurator by clicking on the configurator button. A set of introductory questions help define the number of compartments and type of mailbox that is to be configured. Unlike the database-driven configurator, a two-dimensional visual representation of the mailbox appears on the screen.

“Once the new configurator is launched, customers will be able to more easily design their custom mailboxes,” said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom. “Powertrak’s rules engine, visualization, and empowerment for individual involvement will increase engagement with both channel partners and customers, resulting in an improved customer experience.”

With Powertrak powering the configuration, the user selects the type of mailbox or parcel door they are interested in and drags-and-drops it into an appropriate location (determined by the rules engine) on the two-dimensional mailbox rendering. From there, additional options are made available such as the type of finish, engravings, labels, and numbering sequence. When the configuration is complete, users are able to save the configuration, quote it, or complete the order at checkout.

“More and more companies are recognizing the benefits of automating their CPQ process and empowering their customers to design, quote, and buy,” added Belongie. “Many Powertrak customers have commented that its visual product configurator solution is not only an effective sales tool, but also a powerful marketing tool.”

About Axonom

Axonom is an independent software vendor that develops, designs, and markets Powertrak, the innovative B2B revenue management suite for high-tech and manufacturing industries. Powertrak enables companies to successfully sell and service to its customers and partners in an environment that requires multi-level relationship tracking, web self-service, partner/dealer loyalty management tools, streamlined quote-to-order processing, service revenue management, hassle-free payment options, and a worldwide presence.

La La Land Shirts, An Online T-Shirt Vendor Recently Introduced Several Autism Awareness Shirts Being Sold On TeeSpring


St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 27, 2015

Based in St. Louis, Missouri La La Land Shirts has started a new line of shirts that focuses on autism awareness. The shirts are being sold through TeeSpring. Autism is very misunderstood and the owners of La La Land Shirts believe it is an important topic that needs more attention paid to it. “Making t-shirts and spreading autism awareness is important, because it will help start conversations about the topic”, said a spokesperson from La La Land Shirts.

La La Land Shirts is happy with the selling system that TeeSpring has to offer, because the shirts can be available for only a short period of time. This leads to a supply and demand situation and enables them to use Facebook ads to hyper target an audience. It also makes it easier for La La Land Shirts to use their I Love Someone With Autism Facebook page.

Using this Facebook page is a great way to not only sell the t-shirts, but it’s also a great way to grow the page which will help raise awareness for autism in the long run. “This serves two jobs at once, because the Facebook advertisements for the shirts not only advertises the shirts, but the page and will lead to more awareness for autism in the end by more people liking the page”, said a spokesperson for La La Land Shirts.

La La Land Shirts also has their own t-shirt shop in which they can sell their shirts, but going through their store is more of a long sell than seeing a shirt on Facebook and pulling the trigger. The reason is because, TeeSpring only gives you a certain amount of time to sell on their site and that creates a feeling of “I need this now”.

You can take a look at the Autism Awareness Store that La La Land Shirts has been set up on Teespring and get an idea of how the new way of shopping for T-Shirts works, plus it’s a great way to see the amazing designs that are also being sold on their normal website.

For more information, visit http://lalalandshirts.com.

About La La Land Shirts:

La La Land Shirts is a company that has been around since 2007 and is committed to making shirts that appeal to a wide range of people. They are principled, trustworthy and continuously strive to improve themselves and their customer experience. By adding motivational workout shirts, music shirts, crazy shirts and Hillary Clinton shirts to their repertoire, they are trying to cater to a larger and larger crowd.

Tellwut Online Survey Finds Only 32% Feel Eating Organically Grown Food Is Important


(PRWEB) October 29, 2014

With a rise in retail shelf space going to organically grown foods over the last few years, Tellwut’s online market research arm posed a number of questions to its Tellwutter community surrounding the importance of organic produce, along with the whys and why not’s. This online survey produced a number of interesting observations including the result that only 32% feel that organically grown food is an important factor when purchasing produce and with decided voters returning a split decision as to whether or not organic is healthier.

Organically farmed goods are produced in a way that adheres with the organic guidelines of various governments as well as international organizations. In basic terms an organically grown good is food that is produced in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner, without the use of chemical and or artificial pesticides. The organic food movement is a growing global trend, however the Tellwut survey found that while 32% felt it was important, 51% did not consider it to be a factor and 17% were undecided in regards to their organic consumption habits. An overwhelming 89% of members found organic foods to be too expensive, though prices do vary based on the item, location and season. On average organic goods appear to be 42% more expensive than their conventionally grown counterparts according to http://www.organic.com.

When asked the main reason for choosing to purchase organically grown food, 51% of members choose to do so because it is pesticide free which means that it is grown without the help of artificial pesticides, however it should be noted that organically grown produce still use pesticides, they are just considered ‘organic pesticides’ meaning that they are derived from natural sources. 28% of members also chose organic to support local farmers, while 17 percent felt it tasted better. Many members also referenced that organic was not genetically modified (GMO), an important factor to them.

Is organically grown food more nutritious than conventionally grown food? 33% of panel members did not agree, 34 % of panel members did agree, while the other 33% were unsure. There are hundreds of studies comparing the nutrient levels of organic vs. conventionally farmed goods, but according to a report produced by the Food Marketing Institute the USDA has found that organically grown food is not safer or more nutritional than its conventionally farmed equivalent, they only state that it is different in how it is grown, handled and processed.

61% of panel members felt that some produce is better to purchase organic than other produce. An article by Dan Shapley posted by Good Housekeeping magazine suggests that it is best to spend your money on organic fruits and vegetables which are thin skinned and have edible exteriors such as apples, tomatoes or grapes, versus produce like avocados which have outer layers. Interestingly 51% washed their fruits and vegetable in under 10 seconds, while 26% rinsed between 10 and 30 seconds and only 15% gave produce more than a 30 second rinse.

As one Tellwutter put it, “Organic is just another label to sell something at a higher price, while the jury is out on health benefits.” With sentiment like this it is not surprising that this online market research study found that the minority of 32% of panel members consider eating organic to be an important part of their diet and of those purchasing organic only 35% purchased more organic food this year when compared with last year, while 15% purchased less and 50% purchased the same.
