NourishLife Speak Reviews From a Mother’s Comments

A Mother and Her NourishLife Speak Review

People who know my kids will probably think it is ironic that I just ordered an omega 3 product called SPEAK for my kids. If there is one problem my kids don’t have now, it’s speech problems–probably because of all the fish oil they have taken over the years. But, this product is specially formulated with all the nutrients that my kids do well on–high EPA/low DHA fish oil, Vitamin E, GLA and Vitamin K. It comes in capsules, but when I spoke to the company, they said that is was formulated in capsules to prevent the oil from getting rancid when exposed to air. Most parents, they said, opened the large capsules and put them in something. They have a starter kit for parents that is $49.95.

Vitamin K, needed for blood coagulation (clotting) is produced in the gut and it is in the Nutristart multivitamin my son has been on since he was 18 months old. When you have digestive issues the body often cannot make enough vitamin K. Bruising and nose bleeding can be a sign that you are low in this vitamin. It is also found in foods that many kids do not eat that much of: leafy green vegetables, avocado and kiwis. These are not foods that my kids eat on a daily basis. People who have celiac or irritable bowel disease are more likely to be low in this vitamin.

They also have a simpler product called Learn which just has the omega 3s. I will let you know how it goes when I receive Speak and I hesitate to recommend something I haven’t tried so you can wait a few weeks until I report back. But it was recommended to us by Geri Brewster, our nutritionist, and when I looked at the formulation, it really does look like an exceptional product.

National Association of Professional Women Announces Dr. Natalie W. Geary, Owner / President of Private Pediatrics of Palm Beach, a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year


Garden City, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2014

NAPW honors Natalie W. Geary, M.D., F.A.A.P., Owner and President of Private Pediatrics of Palm Beach as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. She is recognized for leadership in pediatrics and family care with this prestigious distinction. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.

Thirty years ago, before opening her private medical practice in New York City, Dr. Geary traveled the world helping underserved populations. That was when medical anthropology was a little known field. During that time, Dr. Geary promoted childrens health, improving access to care from Malawi to New Mexico. She trained and practiced Ayurvedic medicine in India and did her thesis research comparing the healthcare beliefs and utilization practices in cancer patients at Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai and Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York City.

As an American doctor working in foreign lands, Dr. Geary learned first-hand how much work there was to be done for underserved populations. After several years in a hospitalist practice in New York City, she moved to New Mexico to work in a hospital-based clinic to study public health. It was a move that inspired her to establish a nonprofit called Mobile Pediatrics in New Mexico where she drove into the small towns of northern New Mexico to screen children and give them vaccines. Dr. Geary continued balancing her private practice in NYC and working for her nonprofit organizations around the world.

Today, Dr. Geary is Owner and President at Private Pediatrics of Palm Beach, which specializes in pediatrics and family care. She received her M.D. in medicine from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She is currently involved with the Medical Society of New York and the Medical Society of Florida.

Awards & Accomplishments: M.D., Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Medicine, Nutrition and Allergy, Health Care Needs Analysis; Pediatrics; Board of Directors Katie Ford Foundation; International Rescue Committee; Medical Society of New York; Medical Society of Florida; Mobile Pediatrics

Diverse Youth Volunteer Group Return Enlightened from International Cultural Exposure


Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 30, 2014

Those who are willing to step outside their comfort zone, not only expand their work experience and language skills, but also greatly enhance their global awareness and cultural intelligence. The benefits that youth receive from volunteering abroad are endless. A small but diverse group of international volunteers, hailing from all over the world, recently travelled together to China on a two week volunteer abroad program through CrossContinental.org. In the attached video (http://youtu.be/wnzDYCyp5rQ), the volunteers share their lively experience in China.

Samantha Francis of Britain, along with Hyein Jung and NaYon Park of Korea, spent a wonderful fortnight interacting with and schooling young kindergarten children in the mountain city of Chengde, Hebei Province. Only a two hour drive from the bustling metropolis of Beijing, Chengde is a city well-known for its incredible scenery and heritage sites, and also has a wealth of history and culture that the volunteers took complete advantage of.


Cultural Benefits

International volunteer travelers allow their minds to open, as they reflect on the varied and wonderful cultural differences to be found around the world. Samantha, Hyein, and NaYon learnt firsthand about the community, its traditions, the people, and their way of life while living with a host family in Chengde. Nayon says, “Everybody has been super kind to us.”

Talking about the benefits of home-stay accommodations, group leader Samantha says, Staying with host families allows you to see the culture from the locals perspective, rather than as a tourist. She continued, Our host family also went above and beyond, taking us on a weekend trip to the Grasslands and to see the Great Wall, as well as introducing us to loads of delicious local dishes at restaurants and at home.

Work Experience

The main purpose of a teaching program abroad was to exchange ideas and knowledge with the little children. Recognizing the importance of this interaction, and feeling accomplished by its success, Samantha had this to say: The most rewarding experience would have to have been at the end of the week of teaching when the kids showed me that they remembered the lessons I had taught them throughout the week. They made me feel that I had succeeded in teaching them more English, if only a small amount.” She added, “Their enthusiasm and enjoyment of the game was extremely rewarding for me to see.

Hyein mirrors this sentiment by stating, “My experience teaching the children at the kindergarten has been one of the best experiences in my life. They are the most adorable kids I’ve ever met. I’m going to miss them so much.”

The Supportive Team at CrossContinental.org

The group used CrossContinental.org as a platform for their international travels, and appears to be extremely satisfied with their choice. Raving about their volunteer abroad experience, in a glowing feedback about their first day, they wrote: Everyone has gone out of their way to make us feel welcome and help us with anything we need.” They continue, “Weve been having a wonderful time and are really happy that we came through Cross Continental!

Endless Learning Opportunities Abroad

The three volunteers had a spectacular time in China, where they not only got to interact and share knowledge with the local children, they also learned so much more from all their experiences. Navigating through the local bus system, getting lost while exploring the surrounding area, and visiting the Chengde Mountain Imperial Gardens and Palace, all with the help of their local coordinators. They also took trips out to see the Great Wall, shop in the bustling markets of Beijing, and even visit the Mongolian border on a weekend trip to the Grasslands.

Enhance Foreign Language Skills

They also improved their Chinese language skills by practicing with the supportive CrossContinental team. They report, “Were also enjoying the opportunity to practice our Chinese, the host family and Lily (the local coordinator) especially are really helping us improve our listening and speaking skills.”

Comments upon Returning Home

Upon returning home, Samantha reports, “Both the local coordinator and our host family went above and beyond in terms of taking care of us and showing us Chengdes best places and foods.” She continues, “We were welcomed with performances and said goodbye to in the same way along with gifts and a book with pictures of our time there. I could not have asked for a better local coordinator, host family or place to teach.”

By planning thoroughly detailed trips, working in tandem with local organizers, the CrossContinental team allows for flexibility and creative input to create a fulfilling and comprehensive international experience. Samantha praises the organization for their efforts. She says, I would definitely recommend CrossContinental to others. I am very pleased that we went with CrossContinental and feel that they helped us get the most out of our volunteer experience.
