We prayed. Focused. Took action. Self-promoted. Contributed, and more. How often do we hear, or have you felt, that you, a devout believer, aren’t seeing any results or payoffs, rewards or the glory spoken of?

Ray Carter CEO of StemTech on Their Success with Direct Sales

Ray C. Carter Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of StemTech International

Talks to us about their breakthrough product that increases your bodies natural release of the repairative adult stem cells and the business model they have chosen to allow everyone to share the product and financial rewards.

Ray Carter Audio Interview on Stem Cell Breakthrough and How they are using Direct Sales to Share and Promote their products ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

I am very lucky and grateful for the things I get to do. Interviewing celebrities, authors, thought leaders and professionals about all kinds of interesting subjects.

One of my favorite things is stuff. I love cool stuff and I started an Innovative Products page to highlight some of the great products I come across.

I see many types of products through traditional means of distribution and also direct sales channels of distribution. If I love a product I do not care how it is distributed, I just want to know how I can get it.

I have had some success at network marketing in the past and I happen to really love and embrace that channel of distribution. Given the right management, a solid compensation plan for distributors and a really great product and you have a solid way for manufacturers to get their product out into the market place with the best advertising available “Word of Mouth”.

It is also great for the client as they get to deal with real people not corporations when it comes to getting service also a client can, by sharing the product, they love, make some money.

There is also the opportunity to leverage others that want to build a business in order to make even more money and possible residual cashflow.

blah, blah, blah… I know many of you have heard this before and will take me to task about ponzi schemes. You will argue that only those at the top make money. I get it and you will find that ponsi schemes do exist and in a ponsi scheme scenario you would be right about the people at the top, but they are illegal.

There are thousands of legitimate network marketing companies and you can usually check them out by making sure they are members of groups like the Direct Selling Association (DSA) as these companies have proved their legitimacy.

OK so all that said, I wanted to introduce everyone to a product, I believe is incredibly innovative and, more importantly, relevant to everyone who cares about their health and quality of life.

StemTech makes a a product that has been proven, through studies, to support and increase naturally, the number of adult stem cells your body produces. I will not go into the science here, but if you know anything about stem cell research, you will know that stem cells have become one of the most significant and revolutionary health breakthrough technologies today and in the future.

Click here to listen to the Christian Drapeau the Chief Science Officer and Co-Founder, as he speaks to the incredible science behind this product and listen to the audio above to find out more about the history and business side of this story.

This story will probably change your life or the life of someone you love in more that one way. It can be your ticket to good health and to financial freedom.JW

Christian Drapeau Increasing Your Bodies Natural Release of Adult Stem Cells

Christian Drapeau Author of “Cracking the Stem Cell Code” and Chief Science Officer for StemTech International

Talks to us about their breakthrough product that increases your bodies natural release of the reparative adult stem cells.

OMG not another health breakthrough! I avoid these things as I get so many request for me to try someones product so I can help promote them.

OK so I show up at the W Hotel, in Hollywood and while sitting down and checking my emails in the lobby, an old friend Lisa Hill walks up and gives me a big hug and says she is glad to see me there. I was glad to see her also as between celebrity interviews Lisa and I have hung out and she is wonderful.

She asked me to stop by and check out their booth at the Emmy event and of course I did. Only to see a health product… Oh noooo.

Then I found out what it was. A nutritional product that naturally makes the body increase its creation of natural adult stem cells. OMG I was just reading on the astounding health breakthroughs were happening and will be happening in the future based on stem cell treatments. 

I was hooked and wanted to know more. They said there were studies. Not about stem cells… We know they work. The studies were about product. OK I love studies… Not to hep on testimonials. Anyway I had the Christian Drapeau call me at home to talk about the real science and studies. I didn’t want to report on another product that did not have proof that it worked.

I was astounded by the thought that I could increase the amount of stems cells in my body, for a fraction of the cost of injections, and that by taking this supplement every day, I could keep large amounts of stem cells in my body for much longer periods than the expensive injection.

I am trying out the SE2 product and DermaStem right now. I am not one to look for a product experience. If your diet sucks and you start taking supplements that give you nutrients you are not getting via the typical burger and fries than you will probably feel better and there is always the placebo effect. I do have to say I do feel better just knowing that I am allowing my body to do a better job at naturally healing itself.

I spend almost an hour on the phone with Christian and if you listen to this interview you will see why. This might be the most important breakthrough in personal health since we discovered antioxidants… I would actually dare to say that this would be more important

If you know anyone suffering health issues or you are yourself, you need to listen to this interview. Remember that your future health concerns are based on things you are doing right now. – JW

The Stem Cell Theory of Renewal

Demystifying the Most Dramatic Scientific Breakthrough of Our Time

Are the functions of Adult Stem Cells really the most dramatic scientific breakthrough of our times?

Visionary Stem Cell Scientist and Stem Cell Nutrition expert Christian Drapeau says “Absolutely Yes” as he explains the science and implications behind the body’s natural renewal system.

Adult Stem Cells in your bone marrow constitute the natural healing system of your body. Wherever there is an injury or damage to any organ, stem cells are released from the bone marrow. They migrate to that organ and become healthy cells of that organ, literally repairing the damaged tissue.

The implications of new developments in Adult Stem Cell science for health and wellness are mind boggling.

Centerville Pie Co. Giving the Disabled Fuller Lives

Centerville Pie Company’s Chicken Pie was voted one of Oprah’s Favorite Things

But that is only half the story.

Centerville Pie Co. supports Cape Abilities a non profit that helps people that are mentally and/or physically disabled.

Centerville Pie Company serves up their famous pies at GBK Gifting Suite for the Golden Globes.


Centerville Pie Company started by hiring 5 mentally disabled workers from Cape Abilities Center and now employs over 45 disabled workers.

It is so great to see companies like this working hard to do the good in the world and make a living putting out exceptional products.

Unemployment is at all time highs for everyone and especially for this sector of the workforce so we thank you Laurie and Kristin for all you do.

Yes, I tasted the the famous chicken pie… Mmmmmm. Full of great tasting chicken and the fixins.  Have one sent to you, you have to try this wonderful treat. – JW

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

logo centerville Pie Co shCenterville Pie Company

The Centerville Pie Company Inc.  is a Massachusetts-based pie company located on Cape Cod. Founded in 2009 by long-time friends Laurie Bowen and Kristin Broadley (“The Pie Ladies”), the local pie shop was thrust into the national spotlight shortly after they opened their doors when they were discovered by Oprah Winfrey.  Pies are available at the Restaurant or Pie Shop, located in Centerville, MA.  Shipping of our Chicken Pie will resume the week of September 12, 2011.  Our Shopping Cart is now up and running!

Cape Abilities

Cape Abilities enjoys a special working relationship with Centerville Pie Company, a local business that achieved national recognition after television host Oprah Winfrey got a taste of their pie in 2009 during a visit to Cape Cod for Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s funeral.

The increase in orders following that brush with fame meant sudden growth for the pie company, and owners Kristin Broadley and Laurie Bowen found their solution at Cape Abilities, a nonprofit they had long supported. They established a Pie Kitchen at Cape Abilities in Hyannis in October, 2009, which employs people with disabilities who help make the famous pies.

In 2010, Centerville Pie Company Inc. expanded its production by partnering with Cape Abilities, a nearby non-profit organization that supports people with disabilities on Cape Cod, helping them with housing, transportation and employment. Centerville Pie Company now handles much of its pie-making operations from the Cape Abilities location and employs over 40 disabled adults. The company also supports Cape Abilities by donating a portion of their proceeds to the non-profit.

Laurie and Kristin
Both Laurie and Kristin come from diverse culinary backgrounds. Laurie, a native Cape Codder, has worked in the restaurant business on the Cape for over 25 years, holding every job in the kitchen, from line chef to executive chef at a host of local restaurants (Laurie took a short break from the restaurant business to serve as a deputy sheriff in Barnstable County for several years). Kristin, a self-proclaimed Cape Cod “Washashore”, moved to the Cape as a teenager. Kristin is a professionally trained chef, holding a degree in culinary arts from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI. While cooking has always been her passion, prior to opening Centerville Pie Company with Laurie, Kristin spent 16 years as a banker while she raised her son.

Realizing a Dream

The decision to open Centerville Pie Company was born from demand. For years, Laurie cooked her signature chicken pie for friends and family. After awhile the demand became so great that she a Kristin decided to make a business of it. In March 2009, they followed the dream they both shared to own and operate their own restaurant, and opened the doors to The Centerville Pie Company.

AquaHydrate9 a New Mineral, Electrolytes and Alkaline Balanced Water

Mark Wahlberg and Sean Combs are on the board of this company that produces high grade bottled water that contains everything you need and nothing you don’t.

AquaHydrate9 shows off their new water product at GBK Gifting Suite for the Golden Globes.

One of the most popular tables at the GBK Gifting Suite was the AquaHydrate9 table where celebrities got a chance to sample the taste of this great tasting water.

Looks like the product has almost everything you want and none of the things you don’t for a reasonable price.

I only drink bottled water and I believe there is a difference and AquaHydrate tasted great and will go to the top of one of my favorites. – JW

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

aquahydrate bottle

AquaHydrate 9

AquaHydrate is made through a proprietary, multi-step process in which water is purified to rigorous standards, raised

to an alkaline pH of 9+, and then supplemented with electrolytes and minerals. AquaHydrate is the only bottled water on the market with this unique combination of purity, electrolytes, minerals and alkalinity.

Elite athletes such as Brian MacKenzie, Ironman contender and creator of Crossfit Endurance training, and Robbie Davis, trainer of NBA and Olympic champions, believe that AquaHydrate is important to their rigorous training regimens. Likewise, the USA Men’s and Women’s Water Polo Teams have chosen AquaHydrate as their sports beverage of choice as they train for the 2012 Summer Olympics, where they are expected to be leading medal contenders.

Professional athletes also rely on AquaHydrate. Among them: New England Patriot and NFL Pro-Bowler Vince Wilfork, professional women’s basketball player and two-time Olympic gold medalist, Delisha Milton-Jones, and golf legend Jack Nicklaus. Actor/producer Mark Wahlberg relied on AquaHydrate to stay super-fit for physically demanding roles such as boxer Micky Ward in the award-winning movie, “The Fighter.”

AQUAHYDRATE’S PURITY

aquahydrate JW Najarian and BJ StewartWhile many brands meet minimal industry standards, AquaHydrate exceeds all industry standards through its use of reverse osmosis plus its additional proprietary filtration process.

AQUAHYDRATE’S MINERALS

Every human being loses minerals through sweat, tears, body secretions, and literally from the act of breathing. But highly intense athletes have special dietary needs. They are literally sweating out minerals that need to be replaced.

AquaHydrate provides trace minerals from Trace Minerals Research® – a renowned leader in the natural foods market for over 35 years. AquaHydrate is the only commercially available bottled water with minerals from Trace Minerals Research®.

AQUAHYDRATE’S ALKALINE PH

The pH of AquaHydrate is raised to 9+, putting it squarely in the alkaline range. The better water tastes, the more of it you are likely to drink. Many people find that they can drink more AquaHydrate because of its smooth feel to the palette.

Athletes are challenged to drink enough water to stay hydrated because many simply don’t like the taste of most water. And hydration may be the single most critical factor in sports performance. According to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, “The simple truth is that no other nutritional intervention comes close to providing the performance-enhancing effects of staying well hydrated.”

Salt: It Does A Body Good!

Salt; is Good for You?salt shaker

I love the show Mythbusters and BullShit as they both change our paradigm and stretch our minds showing us that just because we believe something, doesn’t make it so. So often we tend to learn much of what we know and make into our belief system, from our peers and our parents who pass down, from generation to generation, often bad or at least misunderstood information. You may have heard the story about cutting both sides of the ham?

One day a young girl watched her mother prepare a ham for Thanksgiving dinner.
“Mom, why did you cut off both ends of the ham?” the daughter asked.
“Because my mother always did,” said the mother.
“But why?”
“I don’t know-why don’t you call Granny and find out why.”
So the daughter called Granny and asked her. “Granny, when you prepared your hams for baking, why did you always cut off both ends?”
“My mother always did it,” said Granny.
“But why?”
“I don’t know-why don’t you call your Great-grandmother and ask her?”
So the daughter preceded to telephone Great-grandmother to inquire why traditionally her family always cut off both ends of a ham before cooking it.
“Great-grandma, when you prepared your ham for baking, you always cut off both ends-why?”
“Well,” Great-grandma said, “the pan was too small.”

These stories and shows are always great because they point out that the information we use to guide our daily lives and the beliefs we have; always seems to make sense, but may not, based on further research and common sense.

It is this writers hope that if you are basing how you live your life, on your beliefs, that you have checked them out and that they at least pass some kind of logic test.

Of course, both “common logic” and “common sense” may be common, but not logical or sensible; and these shows prove this week after week.

The Point?

Salt studies are now showing that the salt scare your parents and doctors have leveled against you, for years, may have little truth or basis in science.

As reported by CNN as long ago as 1998 “For too long we’ve ignored the fact that blood pressure regulation is more closely tied to calcium, potassium and magnesium than it ever was to sodium,” says Dr. David McCarron of Oregon Health Sciences University.

But don’t start pouring on the salt just yet. Many people with high blood pressure still need to cut back on salt. “We don’t want to abandon the salt message, but we want to expand upon it and say that there are other things that are important, too,” says Chris Rosenbloom of the American Dietetic Association.

Recipe for low blood pressure

And the evidence is mounting. A recent article in the journal Science confirms: A salt-restricted diet rich in fruits, vegetables and fat-free or low-fat dairy products provides the greatest reduction in blood pressure. “The effect of low-fat dairy products and fruits and vegetables appears to be someplace between 10 and 20 times as effective as restriction of salt,” McCarron says. “The guidelines are clear — three to four servings of low-fat diary products, five to eight servings of fruits and vegetables a day,” he says” Read More: http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/9808/13/salt.blood.pressure

Jenny Thompson in her HSI e-Alert wrote the following: “Lowering sodium intake may actually increase risk of heart attack and death. And here’s the proof: In three different trials that tested low-sodium diets on patients with kidney disease and heart failure, results linked the special diets to higher risk of hospitalizations, cardiovascular events, and death.

Yeah–THAT wasn’t supposed to happen!

In a recent Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Michael Alderman (a past president of the International Society of Hypertension) called for large-scale clinical trials that will hopefully produce definitive data on what outcomes can be expected in following a reduced-sodium diet. And why would we need those trials?

According to Dr. David McCarron–a nutritionist and University of California professor–there’s currently no reliable evidence that backs up the accepted recommendation to reduce sodium intake for heart health. Dr. McCarron says the recommendation is based only on opinion and the demonization of salt by health authorities, such as the CDC. And now I’ll tell you something you’ll have no trouble believing. One of the key points in the new USDA dietary recommendations: Significantly reduce sodium intake.

Real life mythbuster

Writing about the new USDA recommendations in Canada’s Financial Post, Dr. McCarron has more salt myths to bust. Last year he led a study that measured daily salt intake in more than 19,000 subjects from about 30 countries. The three surprising conclusions:

  1. Americans consume no more salt than people in other countries.
  2. Salt consumption in the U.S. has NOT increased over the past 25 years.
  3. No matter how salty your food, your body naturally regulates your intake, so you wind up with a consistent overall intake.

This is why deliberately forcing down your salt intake is a bad plan–not healthy at all. Your body takes what it needs. And it does need sodium.

Several years ago, German research showed that as many as 1 in 10 seniors suffer from hyponatraemia (low blood levels of sodium). Hyponatraemia usually goes undiagnosed because symptoms are similar to conditions we associate with aging: fatigue, confusion, poor balance, and incontinence.

In advanced hyponatraemia, patients have hallucinations and may even lapse into a coma. The German study reported that a large majority of the elderly subjects said they avoided salt based on the popular misconception that salt intake causes high blood pressure. Gee, USDA, I wonder where they’re getting that misguided information.” Read More http://hsibaltimore.com/2010/06/30/sodium Back to the Top
