    Tonight: The Return of Joey Gregon


    Joey is probably the busiest advocate I know. A true example of what it means to have a giving spirit. He works tirelessly for Medtronic (think DBS) and if you attend any Parkinson's events throughout Arizona, odds are that you will find him there as one of our biggest supporters.


    Why settle for staring out the window, watching the world sped by? Parkinson's may slow us down, but that doesn't mean we stop living life to the fullest. There are no ordinary moments, each one is a golden gift.


    Join host Mick Beaman as he discusses medications, doctors, therapies, educational symposiums, care partners, love and life as we know it through the eyes of a parkie.

    What Cosmetic Companys Don't Want You to Know!

    in Health

    The skin is our largest organ.  It's taking in the environment’s moisture, dryness, airborne chemical pollution and everything we put on it - including cosmetics.  It then stands to reason that if we cannot pronounce the ingredients on the labels of products we use, then we shouldn't be putting it on our skin.  Yet often (call it vanity or ignorance), we don't think that far.  The cosmetics industry definitely doesn't want us to think about the chemicals that we are ingesting, because many of them are making us sick.


    When our guest, Lori-Ann Woodard, had a recurring illness, the doctors couldn't find the root of the issue. She had to find answers herself.  Lori-Ann discovered that removal of chemical toxins in the mind, in the body, and in the home was key to remission of the illness she battled for years. Her quest for a healthy skin care alternatives lead her to create Uma Enterprises, LLC.   Her vision and product lines include:  Uma "Love You" Health Awareness (inside and out self-care), Uma Glow Cosmetics (organic alternative to traditional body care products), and Uma Sound (music from her soul).


     


    Lori-Ann has an engineering degree and is currently a Quality Assurance Compliance Manager for Combination Products at Teva Pharmaceuticals.  As she spent years developing combination medical/pharmaceutical/biologic and IVD products for companies such as Medtronic, Werfen, Eli Lily, Johnson & Johnson, and Genzyme, she learned to appreciate the natural healing properties of the God given elements the earth has to offer.
