Health and Fitness Expert Samir Becic Promotes Water to the World During an Extreme Workout


Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 22, 2015

World renowned health and fitness expert Samir Becic, founder of nonprofit Health Fitness Revolution, created an original video in which he reveals one of the key elements to a healthy lifestyle: drink plenty of water on a daily basis. His video message, which was done during his extreme treadmill workout, was created in an effort to motivate Americans to drink more water in order to stay healthy and fit. In the video, he explains how sufficient amounts of water can boost the immune system, reduce your hunger levels, promote weight loss, improve hydration and give you younger, healthier looking skin.

The extreme video features Becic doing stunts not recommended for the public, jogging backwards and changing directions on a treadmill while simultaneously talking about the key benefits of drinking water.

“The rate at which Americans are becoming overweight and obese is increasing at an alarming rate,” Becic said. “The vast majority of Americans are living an unhealthy lifestyle and battling health conditions such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. But the good news is that 60 to 70 percent of those diseases can be prevented or controlled by living a healthy lifestyle. And one of the first and most basic principles to being healthier is drinking sufficient amounts of water.

“Two-thirds of the human body is made of water. Every cell in our body requires water to function, survive and thrive. This is why it is so important to consume at least 10 to 12 glasses into our system a day, but I recommend increasing that number to really get the wide ranging benefits of water in your body.”

Approximately 70 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated and often mistake feelings of thirst for feelings of hunger. In addition, lack of a sufficient amount of water intake is the No. 1 trigger of daily fatigue. Becic recommends drinking a large glass of water upon waking in the morning due to the fact that the body goes through a period of dehydration overnight. Drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning can also boost the digestive and metabolic systems.

In addition to the benefits mentioned in the video, other benefits include improved sleep, higher energy levels and reduced risk of kidney stones.

Medicine World Enterprises, LLC – Stress and Hormones Affect Weight More Than Previously Understood

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

Very few professionals would argue with the proposition that diet and exercise combine to represent the fundamental components of weight management. However, it turns out that two other factors, stress and hormones contribute significantly. They appear to interact and contribute to the ways that most people process food and benefit from exercise. The good news is that both are manageable to a degree that has significant bearing on weight control.

Dr. Veronica Anderson has analyzed data from the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, and other reliable sources. She recognizes that the general categories of food consumption and exercise have multiple subcategories including genetics, hormonal issues, diet quality, sleep, and stress. The public least understands stress and hormones, but they offer everyone the best opportunity to make adjustments.

The way Dr. Veronica describes the connection is that stress is the human body’s natural response to perceived threats. An example she uses is that you suddenly realize your toddler has wandered away from your sight at a park playground. A region of the brain known as the hypothalamus stimulates adrenal glands that release adrenaline and cortisol. The adrenaline raises your heart rate, blood pressure, and energy. It is cortisol, the number one stress hormone, which increases the sugar supply in the bloodstream (leading to weight gain), inhibits the immune system, and suppresses digestion. Other by-products include fear, mood disruptions, and reduced motivation.

In the example, as soon as you notice your child emerge from a play structure, the hormone levels normalize and everything else self regulates once again. However, today’s world has a way of maintaining elevated levels of stress beyond normal parameters. Long-term stress response, even at the relatively low levels we experience in competitive working environments, leads to heart disease, sleep disorders, depression, memory impairment, and weight gain.

Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has increased the problem since it has resulted in a reduction in reimbursements to physicians who deal with these issues. Proactive health care practitioners such as Dr. Veronica advise against taking pills that only mask the symptoms. Rather, she recommends managing stress with her 5 Pillars of Health program that include: 1-Detoxification, 2-Nutrition, 3-Fitness, 4-Nervous System Maintenance, and 5-Hormonal Regulation.

While stress reduction strategies such as meditation, yoga, and other relaxation techniques play a role, Dr. Veronica notes the long-term solutions to uncontrollable weight extend beyond those. She adds, “You cannot just quit your job or get a divorce.” She instructs people that they must learn about the cycle of stress and sustainable methods to break it.

About Dr. Veronica Anderson:

Dr. Veronica has appeared on all major news networks including NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox News Network, and CNN. She has been published multiple times on Huffington Post. She hosts the radio show, Wellness for the REAL World on BlogTalkRadio. She is an avid proponent of combining traditional Western medical care with holistic and alternative remedies. Dr. Veronica M.D. is headquartered at 1485 Fifth Ave. #19-D New York, New York. Contact Dr. Veronica at 609.577.9893 or online at: info@drveronica.com

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.

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.

About Cliff Kohut

Born in Mocksville, North Carolina, and raised in Kernersville, North Carolina, Robert Kohut grew up the son of a gym owner, and naturally became a “gym rat.” Kohut attended East Carolina University in Greenville to study Exercise Physiology and was a walk-on NCAA athlete for the university’s swim and dive team.

Following his time in Nebraska, Cliff returned home and began coaching at a local gymnastics club where he would eventually meet his wife Hannah, who is one of the skilled trainers at 12th State as well. Through intense training, and the support of loved ones, Kohut was able to reach the 2014 CrossFit Mid-Atlantic Regional competition, where he would compete for a spot in the CrossFit Games.
