The Vitamin Shoppe Defies the FDA and is Selling CBD Edibles & Drops

The Vitamin Shoppe

In a move best described as “the FDA be damned,” the retailer is proceeding to sell ingestible CBD supplements and drops

DENVER, CO, USA, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The national retailer, the Vitamin Shoppe is now carrying CBD softgels and will also start selling CBD drops before the end of the month.

The Vitamin Shoppe has almost 800 stores throughout the United States, and the CBD products will initially be available in 14 states in addition to Washington DC and Puerto Rico.

Seen as a “shot across the bow” of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Vitamin Shoppe will not limit its offerings to topicals but is selling ingestibles. This move goes counter to numerous FDA pronouncements indicating that CBD is not approved as a food additive because it’s not “Generally Regarded as Safe,” nor as a health, wellness nor nutritional supplement.

The move by the Vitamin Shoppe follows announcements by Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid that they would sell CBD products. However, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite-Aid are at least for now limiting their CBD products to topicals. This announcement by the Vitamin Shoppe, as a national retailer, they would sell ingestible CBD products is a game-changer.

It’s clear that the Vitamin Shoppe’s strategy is to use CBD softgels and drops as a way to remain at the leading edge of nutritional supplements and as a way to attract new customers to its stores.

Other major retailers, including Target, Kroger and Wal-Mart have been sitting on the sidelines regarding selling CBD products of any kind. The question becomes how long other major retailers can avoid offering their customers CBD products. The food industry is also not immune to consumer pressure to carry food products containing CBD. For major Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) food and beverage companies, the question remains how long they can also afford to stay out of the CBD market.

About the Vitamin Shoppe

Founded in 1977, New Jersey-based, the Vitamin Shoppe is a leading omni-channel specialty retailer of nutritional products. The Vitamin Shoppe is dedicated to helping individuals fulfill their health and wellness needs. The Company is the second largest vitamins, minerals and supplements specialty retailer with over $1 billion in annual revenue.

“MY FAIR LADY” ACTOR/SINGER HEATHER BOTTS ON THE LIFE OF AN UNDERSTUDY

Heather Botts

Heather Botts will headline the Montclair State PRSSA April 22 benefit for Autism NJ

Botts Understudies Laura Benanti in the Lead Role as Eliza Doolittle

You don’t get to rehearse with any of the elements before you go on and perform for a live audience. You have to practice on your own and know the show inside and out.”

— Heather Botts

MONTCLAIR, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of the participating headliners for the 7th annual Autism New Jersey Benefit Concert on Monday, April 22 at Montclair State University will be Heather Botts. Botts is a well-known understudy for several Broadway shows including “My Fair Lady,” “Doctor Zhivago,” and LCT’s “The King and I.” Botts discussed the challenges and joys an understudy role can bring and how this autism awareness event is relevant in her life.

Botts mentioned a couple of different factors of a live performance that differ from Broadway. “You don’t get to rehearse with any of the elements before you go on and perform for a live audience. You have to practice on your own and know the show inside and out. In some cases, you have no depth perception because you are basically watching from the sidelines to figure out and know your blocking and where you stand. Once you get in the sandbox, it can feel very different like an out of body experience,” she said.

Botts also mentioned the woes of hair, costume, and the thrill of a live experience. “It will be the first time you are wearing the wigs, the first time you are singing with the live orchestra, the first time you put the costumes on, it is so many foreign elements that you are experiencing for the first time which is why you have to know the script inside and out,” she said.

Out of all the challenges, Botts still remains enthusiastic with every role she gets. As she is headlining alongside other well-known Broadway stars, Rebecca Luker and Sierra Boggess, Botts reflected on what it meant to her to be able to do so and she stated, “It is an incredible honor, I am humbled.” Botts recalled the first time she heard the recording of “Secret Garden” with Luker, calling her voice, “one of the purest sopranos voices” she’s ever heard. She described seeing Boggess for the first time on the big screen for “Phantom of the Opera”, calling her “ridiculously amazing.”

Botts hopes to inspire the audience to give back to cause of helping Autism New Jersey, stating she is, “happy to be part of this legacy.” While Botts herself is not affected with autism in her immediate family, she stated, “I have friends that have kids that have autism, I know some adults that are autistic, and it is just such an important cause and I’m so excited that Montclair State University has this concert to raise awareness and funds.”

In a new article written in layman’s terms, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Leonard Marchinski informs about Upper Extremity Orthopedics and surgery.

LEONARD JOSEPH MARCHINSKI, M.D. (N/A:N/A)

The conditions that are discussed require special care from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases.”

— Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski, Pennsylvania, orthopedic surgery

WYOMISSING, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hand and upper extremity is broad terminology that includes the functionality of different body parts from your hand to your shoulder, such as joints, bones, ligaments, blood vessels, tendons, soft tissues, and various nerves. These regions of your body are more often afflicted than any other parts because they are heavily exposed to external factors on a daily basis, for and during the performance of many day-to-day chores. Your hand can be adversely affected due to multiple reasons that can cause severe pain in your body. If not treated by an orthopaedic physician, your hand can ultimately stop functioning.

Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski is providing his thoughts on this subject in a new article. The complete article will be available on Dr. Marchinski’s blog at https://leonardmarchinskimd.wordpress.com/ To understand the causes and symptoms of hand and upper extremity health issues, as well as effects and treatments, keep on reading.

1. Tingling Hands
This is a common symptom that can get worse to the extent that you may end up losing sleep, resulting in insomnia. It often begins slowly and temporarily which is why you may ignore it as a harmless feeling. The reason why your hands may tingle is because of the pressure generated on your nerves due to some severe nerve injury, stress injury, toxic intake, viral or bacterial infection, and diabetes. In some cases, the tingling in hands can be extreme, episodic, or chronic. Along with tingling, your hands can be itchy and numb as well.

2. Numbness
Numbness of your hands is often accompanied by tingling and itchiness. Many consider it as a result of CTS – carpal tunnel syndrome – a compression of a median nerve in your wrist, where it passes through a tunnel. While this may be true for some cases, not every other person with numb hands may have CTS. Many other reasons can contribute to numb hands as well. For instance, numb hands can be a result of a compressed nerve due to compression neuropathy. Muscles that are part of the compressed nerve can become weak and twitchy. Another common reason for your numb hands could be an injury, compromised blood vessels, thickened tendons or connective tissues, or ganglion cysts.

Some other reasons that may cause numbness in your hand are as follows:
* Toxic metal exposure
* Brachial plexus injury
* Amyloidosis
* AIDS
* Raynaud’s disease
* Side effects of chemotherapy
* Lyme disease
* Peripheral neuropathy
* Stroke
* Vitamin deficiency
* Vasculitis

3. Arthritis
If you are suffering from arthritis, then it can give rise to bone spurs which may cause pressure on your hand nerves. This may further result in numbness or tickling in your hands and other parts of your body such as wrists and elbows.

4. Pressure on the Neck
You may not know it, but the nerves in your hands and forearms have roots in your neck. If the pressure is produced on the nerves of your neck, the pain can shoot all the way through your hand, wrist, and shoulder.
Several diseases, tumors, infections, and abnormalities related to the spinal cord can cause pressure on the spinal cord and may result in pain in your hand. Decreased reflexes in your arm and forearm may also be caused due to a high-level pressure in your neck nerves. At times, a nerve may be susceptible to pressure in one or multiple parts of the body. Odds are that a nerve is compressed in your neck, which may further affect your hand or arm. This condition is known as “double crush”. When one part of the body suffers from pressure, usually other parts of the body become more susceptible to pressure as well. Therefore, pressure on your neck can easily spike pressure in your hands and cause them to become numb.

The conditions that are discussed in detail above require special care and attention from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases. Some of the most common hand conditions that may require you to consider orthopedic treatments are:

* Ganglion cyst
* Carpal tunnel syndrome
* Hand arthritis
* Wrist/ hand fractures
* Dupuytren’s contracture

If you are suffering from any illness mentioned here, consider the treatment of orthopedics as soon as practicable.

Prolift Injuries: Years Later…Pudendal and Obturator Neuralgia

Dr. Greg Vigna

Prolift injuries have led to thousands of women suffering from chronic neuromuscular problems including pudendal and obturator neuralgia.

I have concerns that women with the Prolift and the transobturator sling devices have had severe pain for years from direct muscle damage and are not being diagnosed and treated appropriately.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pelvic organ prolapse was surgically treated in thousands of women with the Prolift device marketed by Ethicon, Inc. despite a lack of long-term follow up studies regarding safety. The results are foreseeable as now there are thousands of women with chronic neuromuscular problems including hip adductor myalgia (groin pain), pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome.

The Prolift device used for anterior compartment repair is different compared to the Pinnacle and Uphold devices produced by Boston Scientific, Inc. used for anterior prolapse in that the four arms of the Prolift that anchor the device are placed through the obturator membrane and pierce the hip adductor muscles and the obturator internis muscle. This will cause chronic hip adductor myalgia, but overtime may cause catastrophic pain syndrome from nerve damage. The Boston Scientific devices Pinnacle and Uphold device implant directly into the sacrospinous ligament which tend to cause acute or direct pudendal nerve injuries because the pudendal nerve runs adjacent to or behind the sacrospinous ligament.

Dr. Greg Vigna, practicing physician, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, and damages expert states, "The clinical outcomes from the Prolift is foreseeable by their design and have played out in the literature in that there may be anatomic success with supporting prolapsed organs. The neuromuscular injuries are numerous."

Dr. Marc Possover, world authority on mesh related neurological complications in Europe, in 2011 published an observational study of 95 patients who presented to him with neurological issues from prolapse surgery. Five patients presented with pudendal neuralgia from pudendal nerve injury from transobturator slings and these patients presented with delayed pain, months to years after implantation. Similarly, complications from the Prolift were related to injuries to the sacral plexus and/or obturator nerve, along with pudendal pain, with 11 out of 13 patients with delayed onset of pain.

Dr. Vigna states, “I have concerns that women with the Prolift and the transobturator sling devices have had severe pain in the hips related to hip adductor myalgia for years from direct muscle damage and when their pain changes as the device contracts pulling on nerves causing injuries such as pudendal neuralgia and/or obturator neuralgia, they are not being diagnosed and treated appropriately. Future care for hip adductor myalgia is oral medications and physical therapy, in contrast to nerve related complications that require complete mesh removal, decompressive nerve surgery, neuromodulation, physical therapy, and Botox."

Rock n’ Jenny’s Italian Subs earns its tenth prestigious Talk Award for high customer satisfaction ratings.

With mom’s delicious spaghetti sauce and meatballs still being our foundation, we have greatly expanded our menu to satisfy even the most discerning of customers.”

— Owner Jenny Baldino

ESCONDIDO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Building on a successful legacy of great food and great service, Rock n’ Jenny’s Italian Subs has once again earned high praise from satisfied customers, leading to its tenth consecutive Talk Award.

The Talk Awards identifies and honors businesses that provide an outstanding customer experience. Winners are based on an independent, proprietary research and evaluation system, which identifies businesses with a track record of excellent customer service and satisfaction. The rating system combines data collected from nominations, online and other customer reviews, surveys, blogs, social networks, business-rating services, and other honors and accolades — all of which express the voice of the customer. Only those with a 4- or 5-star rating receive The Talk Award.

A good product at a good price with good service. For 30 years, this has been the recipe for success at Rock n’ Jenny’s Italian Subs.

The family-owned shop, with two locations in Escondido and Temecula, started with mom, dad and daughter. “With mom’s delicious spaghetti sauce and meatballs still being our foundation, we have greatly expanded our menu to satisfy even the most discerning of customers,” says Owner Jenny Baldino.

Rock n’ Jenny’s is known for its East Coast-style subs on a warm, crusty Italian roll. “Our crispy Italian bread alone has a following!” says Baldino.

Customers can’t get enough. “After living in California for more than 18 years, I finally found a place to get a good meatball sub!” says customer Gary Patterson. “I had almost given up on finding a place that got the meatball, sauce and bread right (all three elements are very important). Something has always [been] lacking in every one I’ve tried; this is until tonight. Rock n’ Jenny’s gets it right!!!! This is a sandwich that will fill your stomach and your soul. So, if you are from back East and have been looking for a great meatball sub, or you just want one, look no further than Rock n’ Jenny’s here in Escondido!”

The store’s legacy is more than just great food, however. Great service is also a hallmark of Rock n’ Jenny’s. Jenny and the crew meet and greet customers with smiles galore and even a hug, sometimes.

Customer Karen Lowell Mckinnon raved about her food and her experience at the store. “…The owner was actually in there yesterday. I heard her talking to somebody and she was so down to earth and appreciative of her employees…. I have been in other sub sandwich stores and the owners were never behind on the front lines, so to speak, and she was amazing, and all of the employees are amazing. They are always so very nice and precious. I recommend this place to all of my friends and anybody out there searching for an awesome place to go.”

Rock n’ Jenny’s in Escondido is located at 1044 West Valley Parkway. The Temecula location is located at 40420 Winchester Road.

Dr. Gregory Jantz Discusses the Potential Link Between Hypoglycemia and Depression

Dr. Gregory Jantz

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For decades, Dr. Gregory Jantz has studied hundreds of patient disorders to help them arrive at a healthy resolution using his unique approach to care. Through whole-person care, which considers elements like nutrition and physical health, Dr. Jantz was able to draw a connection between depression and hypoglycemia.

Dr. Gregory Jantz pioneered his “whole-person care” approach after encountering countless patients who were unable to find relief from disorders through prescription medication alone. The one-size-fits-all approach to medicine often left his patients with a new but equally uncomfortable feeling or else failed to resolve their disorder in the slightest. Dr. Gregory Jantz’ vision for healthy living covers many lifestyle elements, and so he developed whole-person care to discover the root source of issues and help others arrive at a balance in emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Dr. Jantz encourages healthy eating and often shares insight into how poor nutritional habits can contribute to existing disorders or create new ones.

“In a whole-person approach to treatment, the entire body is recognized as an important
component in depression,” says Dr. Gregg Jantz. “The whole-person approach accepts the
body as a complex organism and looks for systemic reasons for depression.”

Studying the body’s various nutritional needs, Dr. Jantz became aware of a link between low blood sugar and feelings of depression. Glucose (a form of sugar) is the body’s main source of fuel and is produced when we consume carbs, starches, and sugars. During digestion, the fuel is absorbed into the bloodstream or else stored in the liver as glycogen. Hypoglycemia happens when the amount of sugar in our blood doesn’t equal what’s needed to fuel the body’s activities.

From this condition arises mental fog, fatigue, weakness, confusion and more, which can all contribute to feelings of depression. While many people believe their lifestyle habits or past events have caused depression (and they may in fact be inciting factors), most don’t think to consider their diet. Dr. Gregory Jantz encountered too many patients that didn’t understand their nutrition, specifically their low blood sugar, was a potential cause of depression.

The abundance of food in our country often leads to self-medication, causing people to eat an excess of fatty and high-sugar foods. When this happens, the bloodstream is flooded with a surplus of fuel and usually causes a severe crash. The temporary relief or comfort that food brings quickly fades into low blood sugar crashes and symptoms of depression.

Dr. Gregory Jantz argues that depression can often be treated by helping the body correcting any nutritional deficiencies. He advocates healthier sleeping patterns, limiting calories and fatty foods, and avoiding caffeine as a source of energy.

“Relief from depression is a lot more attainable than most people know,” says Dr. Gregory Jantz. “Watching what you eat, getting a little exercise, and making sure to get out in the sun every now and then can have a tremendous impact on your well-being.”

Travel Tips That Will Turn You Into A Master Traveler with Appi Alla

Appi Alla 1

Feeling overwhelmed with your upcoming trip? These travel tips by Appi Alla will help streamline your holiday.

ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — No one is born a master traveller. Rather, travelling savvy takes months or even years of dropping yourself into new, unknown situations and having to figure out how to navigate and overcome all the various pitfalls you might encounter. It’s a process born of travel mistakes – missed buses, late flights, late bookings and lost passports. After enough of these mistakes you begin to learn and effortlessly (and without any glaring problems) to insert yourself into other cultures. Appi Alla, a travelling enthusiast who has seen it all, has made all of these mistakes and compiled a short list of what she’s learned to help other travellers master the art of seeing the world.

Booking in advance

“Flights are known for being notoriously expensive.” Appi Alla says. “But you can save a lot of money simply by booking in advance.” Airlines take advantage of travellers who are looking to travel somewhere at the last minute by making their flight tickets extremely expensive. But with enough foresight, planning and flexibility, you can book your flights far enough in advance and enjoy cheaper fares from most airlines.

Pack light

According to Appi Alla, packing light when travelling is advisable for a number of different reasons. Firstly, carrying a large suitcase is just going to slow you down. Secondly, you really don’t need as much luggage as you think you do. And lastly, it’s going to save you money. Most airlines allow you take 7 – 10kg of hand luggage free with every ticket. By not checking in extra bags, you won’t have to pay hefty luggage fees to airlines.

Never carry lots of cash with you

When you land in a country it’s very tempting to withdraw huge amounts of cash from the ATM in order to avoid having to pay transferral fees after every withdrawal. According to Appi Alla this might seem like a good course of action in order to save money, but having large amounts of cash on you makes you a target towards thieves and pickpockets. Carrying small amounts might cost you more in regards to smaller fees immediately, but will give you peace of mind should anything ever get stolen. If you absolutely have to withdraw large amounts of cash, leave most of it in your hotel room and take only what you need when going out.

Rodin Younessi Acquires Multiple High-Volume Harley Davidson Dealerships in California

Rodin Younessi 1

Rodin Younessi 6

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA , USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Racing legend and motorsports enthusiast Rodin Younessi expands his ownership of national Harley-Davidson dealership with the acquisition of two high-volume locations in California. To date, Younessi is an owner of nine Harley-Davidson locations across the U.S. in addition to a Lamborghini dealership in South Florida.

Rodin Younessi is now the owner of the Top Rocker Harley-Davidson in Canoga Park as well as the Los Angeles Harley-Davidson of Anaheim, two of the most high-volume motorcycle dealerships on the West Coast. The purchase of Top Rocker (formerly Barger Harley-Davidson) came only a month after Younessi secured a deal for the Los Angeles location. Rodin Younessi purchased the property from Scott Fischer who rebuilt the dealership and significantly increased both its revenues and overall performance before selling.

Of the transition to new owner Younessi, George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services commented that it was a true pleasure and that both parties negotiated fairly. Chaconas has been a long-time friend to both Rodin Younessi and past-owner Scott Fischer, and has been instrumental in Younessi’s expansion from Florida. It was Chaconas who introduced Younessi to Fischer when he first showed interest in selling his Harley-Davidson dealership.

"As always, George was a pleasure to work with,” said Rodin Younessi of the transaction process. “He definitely knows how to make deals happen and I look forward to our continued business and personal relationship. George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services are the industry experts in buy-sells, and I would highly recommend them."

After acquiring the California dealerships, Rodin Younessi now owns seven high-volume Harley-Davidsons across the country: Space Coast Harley-Davidson in Palm Bay, Florida, Treasure Coast Harley-Davidson in Stuart, Florida, Raging Bull Harley-Davidson in Durham, North Carolina and Falcons Fury Harley-Davidson in Conyers, Georgia in addition to the California locations.

Younessi and his team are expected to bring first-class customer experience to the dealership as well as foster a sense of community with local buyers. They intend to attract a host of new riders and maintain their existing following in the area with the philosophies that have helped them excel in other locations. With the grand opening of his Miracle City Harley-Davidson location, Rodin Younessi dedicated a full two weeks of daily events to celebrate with the community and invite locals and interested buyers in to tour the new property. He booked live music, food and drink vendors, celebrity personalities and more to contribute to a lively and inviting atmosphere for all.

Rodin Younessi is also known for his dealerships’ charitable contributions, which in the past have included fundraising and community events at his Space Coast dealership and donations of motorcycles to charity auctions and local law enforcement.

“We’re very excited to bring our unique energy and customer focus to California with these two new Harley-Davidson locations, and promise to continue providing exceptional service,” Younessi said.

Rocio Moustafa shares professional insight into antisocial personality disorder

Rocio Moustafa 4

Specialist behavioral expert Rocio Moustafa takes a closer look at the condition known as antisocial personality disorder.

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With more than 200,000 cases diagnosed in the United States each year, antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition primarily characterized by a disregard for other people. An expert on behavior, mood, cognition, and perception from Southern California, Rocio Moustafa takes a closer look at those most likely to be affected, the symptoms, and the available treatment options when considering antisocial personality disorder.

"While antisocial personality disorder may begin to show symptoms, including risky and impulsive behavior, lying, and law-breaking, in childhood, the condition cannot be formally diagnosed until either adolescence or adulthood," explains Moustafa, who's currently based in the City of Los Angeles, the most populous city in California with an estimated population of four million.

Rocio Moustafa has also previously worked in Ventura, California, with both Los Angeles and Ventura known across the United States for their Mediterranean-like climate and rich cultures. "Individuals with antisocial personality disorder often tend to demonstrate, for example, a lack of regard for either their own safety or the safety of others around them," she explains, "as well as a tendency to lie, break laws, and act impulsively."

While symptoms may lessen with age, Moustafa reveals that antisocial personality disorder is considered a chronic condition which can last for decades, or, indeed, be lifelong. "Treatment may begin with talk therapy," she explains, "coupled with additional support for family members affected by their loved one's often extremely troubling and problematic personality disorder and its symptoms."

Requiring a medical diagnosis, those with antisocial personality disorder may experience any one or more of a large number of further behaviors and symptoms. These include, according to Moustafa, antisocial behavior, aggression, hostility, irritability, irresponsibility, deceitfulness, and manipulativeness, as well as physical substance abuse or dependence. "Their mood will often be one of anger, boredom, or general discontent," she adds.

"Family therapy, behavior therapy, and psychotherapy are all recommended forms of treatment for antisocial personality disorder," suggests Moustafa, wrapping up, "provided by either a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist, or a combination of the two."

Rocio Moustafa, from Los Angeles, California, is a behavioral expert specializing in antisocial personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and passive-dependent personality disorder.
