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. She also specializes in sleep conditions, gambling addiction and its consequences, extreme or debilitating fears and phobias—including hemophobia and traumatophobia—and further health and wellness complaints tied to cognition, perception, and mood.

Google Turns 15 and Austin Trahern Explains the Best SEO Business Procedures to Help Get in on the Hype

Keeping up with SEO practices is essential to ensuring your business promotion is getting the recognition it deserves.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO , USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Google. Throughout the last fifteen years, it has become a euphemism and a standard for search engines. Even those search engines that came before, pale (or have completely died off) during its reign.

As Google continues to get stronger throughout the online sphere, its influence continues to shape SEO business procedures. Thankfully, with this milestone Austin Trahern explains the best SEO business procedures to help businesses get in on the birthday hype.

Utilize the “O” in Search Engine Optimization

Optimization means to make something the best that it can be. Therefore, of course people want to optimize their search engines. As business people, it is our duty to help that process along. The way that entrepreneurs do this is to optimize our websites and make sure the content is accurate and informative. This is done by producing high-quality content, being transparent and helpful within that content, and keeping the content fresh. The best way to do this is to go through website content and make it fresh. Update older posts with fresh statistics or replace it completely. Add new accomplishments and company news and replace portions of the home page, such as videos and pictures. It is even helpful to find a fresh way to express old information. Anything that keeps the website alive and fruitful will help SEO in 2019.

Create Content Clusters

Content clusters sound inherently unhelpful. However, this is a form of organization that is ranking well with SEO. This website flow takes different sub genres of information and clumps them together under one common header. For instance, on the homepage, the “About Us” could be a header, which leads to a drop down of different sub genres. These sub-genres could easily include an ideology page, team members page, and even a link to social networks.

The reason is because the AIs that detect SEO are all about connecting the dots. Using a content cluster format on your website does a lot of the work for the algorithm. It is already connecting the important points within the website. Therefore, the program only needs to gauge the trustworthiness of the information, instead of finding relating articles strewn throughout the website.


Whether you are worried about getting cat fished or you are looking up information on a business, trustworthiness is important. Search Engines recognize that the information that is rated highly on their results must be accurate and informative. Therefore, it is the website owner’s duty to prove to the Search Engine that they are trustworthy and credible. The way that business owners do this is to have history and notable achievements. That is why it is always important to include any certifications and distinguishing characteristics in the metadata of a site.
In summation, with Google turning 15, there are many SEO tips and tricks that can help you hype up your business’ online presence. Austin Trahern has experience with many different entrepreneurs and industries. Using such an already popular event to help expand your online presence is utilizing search engines for their intended purpose; that is to connect people with the information and networks they seek.

Jeff Nock Shares Advice on Balancing Family and Work as Both a Father and CEO

Jeff Nock

Jeff Nock

IOWA CITY, IOWA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As CEO & Founder of Prescient Consulting, LLC, Jeff Nock understands the challenge of operating a business and maintaining responsibilities as a father at home. He shares with other business-centric parents what he believes to be the best methods of balancing work and family.

Both work-life balance and the traditional roles of parents at home have changed tremendously in the past few decades. Child-rearing isn’t delegated solely to mothers anymore, and an increasing number of mothers take on top roles in busy, demanding businesses. Some professionals choose to avoid having kids in order to put their careers first, but many more try juggling parenthood with steady work.

“It’s a challenge to designate enough time to both your family and work, but it’s not impossible,” says Jeff Nock. “While my kids will always come first, they also understand that I need to provide for them and that I enjoy my work. The key is good communication and scheduling. While the kids know I will be there for them, my business clients have to know they are a priority. Sometimes this leads to long days!”

Jeff Nock is CEO of Prescient Consulting, LLC and is compelled to work long hours to see his business thrive. However, as a father, he understands that at times a child’s sports game or graduation ceremony will take precedence over a business meeting.

“While business success is gratifying, our kids only grow up once and it happens so fast. I will do whatever it takes to coach or watch my kids in all of their activities while also making sure that our clients are happy. This can be accomplished by staying on top of the kids’ schedules and communicating with clients as to their deadlines and expectations,” says Jeff Nock. “In the end, you have to make sure the kids and clients know they matter.”

In the past, people have had to choose between their priorities, but today they can maintain family commitments as well as professional careers by relying on technology and new modes of communication to be present in multiple places at once. For instance, parents can spend needed time with their families while phoning in remotely through chat or video to important meetings when needed. Alternatively, if business trips take busy professionals out of town, they can use the same modes of communication to contact loved ones and spend quality time from afar.

As a CEO, Jeff Nock has come to the realization that a healthy work-life balance isn’t an end goal, but rather a balancing act that requires constant consideration of what’s most important on any given day.

“Sometimes you have to excuse yourself from work in order to be present for family events,” says Jeff Nock. “Other times you have to ask for forgiveness from your family if something at work is too pressing to put off until tomorrow.”

He concludes that positive communication is your ultimate ally in these circumstances and that there should always be an open dialogue between you and your work, and you and your family, so that both parties stay in the loop. This way, he says, you’ll seldom disappoint either.

WAUCONDA, ILLINOIS, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —
As a longtime volunteer of the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA), Martin F. Garcia of Wauconda has witnessed the organization’s continued growth and expansion. With major improvements across the board, the USSSA now offers more incentives than ever for new and current sports teams.

For years, Martin F. Garcia of Wauconda, IL has supported the USSSA’s mission “to empower our team and its partners with an unsurpassed platform to create and support world-class athletic events and sports programming to enrich and educate the lives of participants at all levels.” He serves as coach, mentor, and role model to his team the Lake County Lightning and encourages them to improve their athletic ability and their respect for one another.

Mr. Garcia has witnessed first-hand the growth of the USSSA as it relocated its headquarters from Petersburg, VA to Viera, FL and expanded its offerings.

“The USSSA has grown to sponsor new sports divisions in order to be more inclusive,” Martin F. Garcia of Wauconda, “as well as amp up its reputation. The new sports arena in Florida prompts wider involvement and allows the association to offer even more national competitions.”

The new Space Coast Complex, the flagship sports complex of the USSSA, took a year and over $30 million dollars to complete but now features a clean, modern space for players from all over to compete in. What was once the Space Coast Stadium was transformed into a multi-purpose complex with eight new all-turf fields alongside the existing seven. In addition, the USSSA built an 18,000-square-foot facility which is used for training, rehab, and the
Association's National Hall of Fame and Sports Museum.

“This new complex is a sports marvel and incentivizes sports teams across the country to perform their best in the hopes of playing at the complex in one of the many USSSA division competitions,” says Martin F. Garcia of Wauconda.

Since its inception in 1968, the USSSA has consistently improved their offerings for youth across the country with new opportunities for regional sports and a national network of supportive and enthusiastic volunteers. The new headquarters and sports complex are only the latest USSSA advancements, but they exemplify how far the association has grown and what can be done with over 3 million active members.

Volunteers like Martin F. Garcia of Wauconda support youth across the country and teach them to improve their athletic ability as well as encourage stronger camaraderie through the association. The new Space Coast Complex offers USSSA teams the opportunity to compete in a professional setting with other talented teams who travel from all over the United States.

“It’s not just a local league with small competitions and minor trophies in the USSSA,” says Martin F. Garcia. “Through the association, youth get to walk in the shoes of professionals and have the chance to achieve their dreams.”

Top Healthcare Mergers of 2018 with Himachal Mukhopadhyay

Himachal Mukhopaadhyay

Healthcare mergers are becoming ever more popular. Himachal Mukhopadhyay discusses some of the top mergers of 2018.

ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — While we might one quarter of the way through the new year already, it’s important to acknowledge all that happened in the previous year with regards to healthcare mergers. Throughout the whole of 2018, the healthcare industry – in particular the finance sector – saw a hefty increase in mergers as both insurers and providers sought to pool resources in order to achieve greater scale and provide more cost-effective treatment across the board. And while this strategy is set to continue across the board in 2018, we, with the help of industry expert Himachal Mukhopadhyay wanted to highlight some of the biggest and move pertinent mergers of 2018.

Advocate Health Care and Aurora Medical Health Care

Two giants of the midwestern healthcare system, Advocate and Aurora made plans to merge in late 2017, and in the spring of 2018 the merger was complete. According to Himachal Mukhopadhyay this merger has created a new system which now employs over 70,000 people and has generated huge amounts of new revenue. One of the aspects which streamlined the process was the two giants agreeing to use the electronic health record system, allowing both healthcare systems to easily share information.


While this particular deal hasn’t gone through yet, it’s currently waiting for the go-ahead from a federal judge. After months of reviews from relevant agencies and state bodies, the pharmacy chain and the insurance company finally got the green light and closed on the merger. According to Himachal Mukhopadhyay, this merger is a landmark in healthcare – the reason being the enormous $70 billion price tag attached to it, as well as the significant impact which it is going to have on healthcare. It’s expected that the scope of the merger will influence other companies to consider similar integrations.

The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Lahey Health

Both based in Massachusetts, these two healthcare systems received the green light to merge in October. It’s big news for the state, as this new system comprising 13 hospitals is expected to provide $71 million in care to communities which previous lacked any regular health service or infrastructure. Looking ahead to the future, it’ll be interesting to see how this merger plays out across the board towards the end of 2019.

Cigna and Express Scripts

After receiving approval from the State of New Jersey, Cigna and Express Scripts sealed their merger deal on December 18. The merger, which saw Cigna Corp acquire Express Scripts, was one of the largest of its kind, totaling over $67 billion. The deal gives Cigna more control and will allow it to lower the cost of prescription drugs for customers.

Dr. Cletus Roy Georges explains more about stress urinary incontinence

Dr. Cletus Roy Georges

Urology specialist Cletus Roy Georges, MD reveals more about stress urinary incontinence and the associated condition known as 'overactive bladder.'

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stress urinary incontinence is a condition wherein which urine leaks out with sudden pressure on the bladder and urethra, according to the Urology Care Foundation, a 22,000-strong member organization committed to advancing urology research and education, headquartered in the community of Linthicum in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. A urology specialist with decades of experience in the field, Dr. Cletus Roy Georges explains more about the issue and the associated condition known as 'overactive bladder.'

"In mild cases, the pressure which causes stress urinary incontinence may be the result of sudden forceful activities, such as sneezing or exercise, as well as coughing or laughing," explains Dr. Georges, an experienced urology specialist based in Orlando, Florida.

Also known as 'SUI,' stress urinary incontinence is a particularly common bladder problem among female patients. "Although occurring rather less frequently in men, male patients may be affected by SUI, too," adds Dr. Georges.

In more severe cases, patients may experience the effects of stress urinary incontinence when enduring even routine, non-forceful, day-to-day activities such as walking, standing up, or bending over. "The result," explains Dr. Georges, "can range from a few drops of leaked urine to enough to soak through a patient's clothes."

Often associated with another common bladder problem, known as 'overactive bladder' or 'OAB,' those with the latter condition typically experience an urgent need to urinate which they can't control. "The main difference, however, between stress urinary incontinence and overactive bladder," Dr. Georges explains, "is anatomical."

"That's because," he continues, "stress urinary incontinence is a strictly urethral problem, while overactive bladder is a problem centered around the bladder itself."

Many people with stress urinary incontinence, Dr. Georges goes on to reveal, also suffer from overactive bladder. "This is known," he says, "as 'mixed incontinence.'"

Male patients are more likely to suffer from overactive bladder than stress urinary incontinence. "Where stress urinary incontinence is an issue in male patients," explains Dr. Georges, "it is often due to prostate cancer surgery, or damage or injury to the pelvic nerve."

In the United States, around one in three women will likely suffer from stress urinary incontinence at some point in their life, according to the Urology Care Foundation. "Established more than three decades ago, the foundation is now a leading advocate in urologic health in the United States and globally, uniquely qualified to speak on behalf of urology specialists such as myself," says Dr. Georges of the organization.

Becoming more prevalent with age, predominantly affecting those aged 60-65 and above, therapeutic options available to address stress urinary incontinence include behavioral modification and pelvic floor exercises, as well as surgical intervention, according to Dr. Georges. "With regards to overactive bladder and urge incontinence, meanwhile," he adds, wrapping up, "further to behavioral modification, other treatment options include InterStim therapy, Botox, pharmacological intervention, and percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation."

Cletus Roy Georges, MD graduated from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan with a bachelor's degree in zoology with a biomedical option in 1987. Georges subsequently attended Weill Cornell University Medical College in New York City, graduating in 1991 and completing his residency in urology at Chicago's Northwestern University McGaw Medical Center in 1997. Shortly after that, urology physician Dr. Georges started his practice in Sebring, Florida before relocating to Orlando, where he remains settled today.
