hCG for Weight Loss is Now Available in Calgary at Glenmore Healthcare

Glenmore Healthcare announces that it is first and only weight loss centre in Calgary to offer the IAPAM hCG Weight Loss program to Calgarians looking to lose weight in 2011. hCG has been used as a weight loss aid for over 50 years, and is experiencing a resurgence in popularity in the US and Canada. Now, under the supervision of a physician, this safe, effective weight loss program is available in Calgary at Glenmore Healthcare.

Calgary, Alberta, December 30, 2010
-- Glenmore Healthcare's exclusive hCG Weight Loss Program is a proven medical solution for optimal weight loss and management. Based upon the successful protocol originally developed in 1954 by Dr. Simeons, and detailed in his report, Pounds and Inches, the Glenmore Healthcare's hCG medically supervised weight loss program is built around a low calorie diet coupled with the administration of naturally occurring hormone, hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin). Glenmore Healthcare follows the IAPAM's (International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine) hCG Weight Loss Protocol, which has been administered to over 4,000 patients around the world with consistent weight loss results. The IAPAM's hCG Weight Loss Program is the only endorsed hCG weight loss protocol available to physicians.

Taken through daily injections or under the tongue, hCG releases 1500-4000 calories a day from the abnormal fat stores. This is the stubborn fat that is locked around the stomach, thighs, upper arms, hips and buttocks. In combination with a very low calorie diet (500 calories per day), a person can expect an average weight loss of .5-1 lb a day. The body does not go into starvation mode, and hunger is significantly reduced. While following the hCG protocol, muscle mass and structural fat are protected, and weight regain after the program is complete is unlikely.

Glenmore Healthcare’s hCG for Weight Loss Program is monitored by a licensed physician who specializes in hCG for weight loss. Labs and vital statistics are recorded prior to starting the program. Patients at Glenmore Healthcare have accomplished phenomenal results, losing as much as 20 pounds in our 26 day program, and 35 pounds in our 43 day program. At the end of the program, we will test patient’s RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) with the same equipment as used on NBC's "The Biggest Loser."  We can now determine their new daily caloric intake required to maintain their new weight. Glenmore Healthcare is the only weight loss centre in Alberta with this new, state of the art equipment.

The Glenmore Healthcare hCG program allows patients to experience rapid weight loss in 40 days or less. Many patients will experience a 20-30lb weight reduction during the 26-43 day program. Not only will clients lose the weight, but many times they will also see a resetting of their metabolism, ensuring enduring weight loss. Glenmore Healthcare is the only medical facility in Calgary that is endorsed by the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (the IAPAM), and follows the industry leading “IAPAM hCG Protocol“ for weight loss. Glenmore Healthcare also serves as an official IAPAM Weight Loss research centre.

According to Obesity Reviews (the official journal of the International Association for the Study of Obesity), successful weight maintenance is optimally found when there is more initial weight loss, and using pharmaceutical hCG along with the hCG diet protocol gives patients very quick and dramatic weight loss. In addition, it has been found that weekly “Fat Burning” lipotropic injections also help promote the breakdown of fat within the liver. Glenmore Healthcare also offers these lipotropic injections as part of their medically supervised weight loss program.

It should be mentioned that hCG is only available through prescription. Homeopathic hCG is commonly available online, however it contains only trace amounts of hCG, if any. It is extremely dangerous to order any medications off the internet, as the origin of such products are unknown. Glenmore Healthcare uses 100% pure, pharmaceutical grade hCG.

The FDA states that, “HCG is a hormone extracted from the urine of pregnant women. It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of certain problems of the male reproductive system and in stimulating ovulation in women who have had difficulty becoming pregnant. No evidence has been presented, however, to substantiate claims for HCG as a weight-loss aid.” This is absolutely true if homeopathic hCG is taken, or the entire protocol is not followed. hCG taken on its own will not result in rapid, safe weight loss. It is very important that when a patient partakes of an hCG weight loss program, that they complete it under the supervision of a physician and follow the entire detailed protocol, as is done at Glenmore Heathcare.

IAPAM's hCG Group on Facebook: Announces Locum Tenens Comes as a Better Option to Many Physicians

The choice lies between Locum Tenens and Permanent jobs. With the former as the choice to some, what should their expectations be?

Amarillo, Texas, December 28, 2010
-- The term Locum Tenens is Latin which means “to hold the place of”. However, in medicine, this phrase simply means “temporary physician”. This is an employment where a physician and is sent to a region in place of a needed physician for a given period of time. This is via a Locum Tenens company which is responsible for arranging physicians for any available physician’s positions all over the world. Most of the assignments issued to Locum Tenens last for a short while, possibly weeks, but some can go on for months.

Having a position for an LT in a remote area of the globe may not be best, therefore there is need to know about the assignment at hand. A research on the assignment and the location will give prior knowledge of the task at hand. Majority of the Locum Companies today want more of practice than the fact that they have provided an LT. This should be a reminder to any Locum Tenens to remember to have the best professional behavior at all times.

Also, many companies insist on articulation when stating their terms of agreement with their Locum Tenens, clearly outlining the expected expenses on traveling, malpractice insurance and sundry expenses arising to be covered by the temporary employer.

Locum Tenens are normally issued with License that states the areas of operation. This will be safe, considering that a majority of LT positions are normally located in adventurous locations. There are LT service provision points to obtain the required license as per the destination. LT can come as a great alternative to permanent positions, but it’s all a matter of choice at the end of it all.

Looking for Romance in Philadelphia? Couples Yoga or Romantic Couples Retreats

On your next anniversary, her birthday, Valentine’s Day or just a special Saturday night, give a gift that will make a difference in your relationship: a couple's night at a yoga studio.

Philadelphia, PA, December 23, 2010 -- Some yoga studios have special workshops for couples which include soft lights, music and sensual massage. No prior yoga experience is usually required. Try a date-night class, and you both will probably enjoy it so much you will want to sign up for a series of couple's classes or a yoga retreat in the countryside.

Benefits of Couples Yoga

Partner or couple's yoga where two people work together in various yoga postures, is not a new concept, but it is a growing trend of the past few years. The majority of yoga students in the U.S. are women. Couple's yoga is the perfect invitation for men to enjoy the amazing benefits of Hatha Yoga on the body as well as on the relationship. Men find that couple's yoga gives them an opportunity to be sensitive without embarrassment. Men will also find that the combination of muscle-toning and stretching has a terrific effect on their sex life.

As a couple practices yoga together, they will at times alternate assisting each other and supporting the other's yoga postures and vice versa. At other times they will work together with equal input to juxtapose or mirror poses that feel uplifting and bonding as well are often aesthetically wondrous.

Yoga postures can be enjoyably developed and extended using the support and guidance of a partner. Doing yoga with a partner's support can be especially helpful when there are restrictions because of injury or individual capability.  The contact and assistance of a partner can enhance and develop the posture within individual ability. There is also the advantage of promoting an atmosphere of greater relaxation because you are practicing it with a person you trust and are confident about.

The benefits of couples yoga are that they can help you reconnect or find a new level of intimacy. They are revitalizing way to spend time with your beloved. The result can be a deeper connection with the building of more trust. As each participant learns to let go and trust, the couple begins to explore spiritual levels of the practice together. They build on the energy of each other and create a better understanding of their relationship as well as the practice of yoga.

It removes distractions that keep a couple from focusing on each other. According to Jasmine Kaloudis, Holistic Lifestyle Expert in Philadelphia, "At times the poses are strengthening and other times deeply serene and restorative.  You might have a range of emotions from silliness, fear to profound peace."

The work that couples do is often transformative since working together through movement can reveal levels of trust, support and encouragement.  It can reveal interpersonal dynamics about the couples that lead to inner growth and intimacy. Learning how to become really attune to your inner world while simultaneously being totally present to your partner is not a gift we often receive.  The new energy that comes from both the poses and from the breathing exercises can be effectively used in the bedroom. It eliminates problems that can get in the way of sex like tight hips, back pain or anxiety.

Some couples feel that after practicing yoga together they have more of an ability to communicate clearly and with more sensitivity with each other. Others say it has sparked a new romance in their relationship to get that 5th date feeling back.  Some participants say it can lead to new levels of openness in the bedroom.  It can only help matters along to do your yoga by candlelight and soft music.   If you know a couple that is stressed out with no time to focus on each other and that would like to spice things up in a healthy and holistic way, you can gift them a workshop or retreat as well.  Celebrate your relationship as you do your poses together.

Web: Announces Government Jobs Are Quite Enticing For Physicians

With more and more graduates flooding into the market annually, physician job seekers might want to consider government jobs for benefits that come along.

Amarillo, Texas, December 20, 2010 -- The opportunities that arise when searching for a physician job lie in many settings. Depending on the physician job type, different aspects should be given consideration including the environment and the professional atmosphere.

In the current market, many new physicians venturing into the market will take the government as the first stop in the search for a job. One merit with this is that there are numerous openings available in different government institutions and they normally come with stiff competition. Positions are plenty in the military, veteran affairs, and medical institutions countrywide and also world wide.

Working as a government physician provides the chance to co-relate with individuals in a professional and academic level. In today’s circumstances, Government jobs are characterized by top research facilities that will bring an exciting experience.

Another issue that makes government jobs so attractive is the financial side of things. They come with competitive salaries that are backed up by comprehensive benefit packages. Similar financial benefits include paid time off, heath benefits, sick leave, life insurance, plus being a member of the Federal retirement system for employees. Additional funding includes child care and tuition dispensations and small bonus structures.

Physician jobs offered by the government are more practical than theoretic, as they involve more practice than paperwork. The search for a job should start from specific government agencies. This way most of them will provide the most basic information for specific job types. Also government websites have lists of opportunities for jobs. With numerous opportunities, it is obvious that many new physicians will be looking up to the government as a first choice for job opportunities early in their careers.

Biotage introduces a new sample preparation application note for the extraction of ethyl glucuronide from urine by LC-MS

Biotage Announces an Easy, Cost-Effective Approach to the Analysis of Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) in Urine for Clinical and Forensic Toxicology Laboratories.

Uppsala, Sweden, December 17, 2010 -- Biotage® (STO: BIOT), a leading supplier of tools and technology for analytical and medicinal chemistry, introduced a new sample preparation application note for the extraction of ethyl glucuronide from urine by LC-MS.

EtG can be detected at very low levels and being a metabolite it is useful in distinguishing between ingested ethanol and that which is absorbed through the skin from ethanol containing products such as alcohol based hand washes. Rapid and reliable methods with robust extraction protocols are essential for analysis and quantitation of EtG from various matrices.

Advances in the manufacture of polymeric stationary phases and the recent release of EVOLUTE® AX, a mixed-mode ion exchange product, have allowed for the development of a more robust, cost-effective procedure. The protocol was developed on 96-well plates for high-throughput with volumes outlined for scale-up to cartridges in manual or automated systems.

EVOLUTE AX sample preparation products are available in a range of standard configurations and 2 different particle sizes (30 µm and 50 µm) to suit a wide variety of applications. The mixed-mode sorbent chemistry and optimized pore size minimizes retention of high molecular weight matrix components present in the biological fluid samples. Interferences including proteins, salts, non-ionizable molecules and phospholipids are removed during the interference elution step, thereby ensuring extremely clean extracts.

Biotage sample preparation products are supported by a wealth of knowledge and experience in method development and trouble shooting. “Clinical laboratories face unique challenges in developing new LC-MS assays. By offering solid chemistry through the EVOLUTE family, and simplified techniques for sample prep, we can help these labs build robust procedures quickly.”, says Elena Gairloch, Market Manager. “We realize that labs have many considerations including processing stations and work load. By offering solutions in an array of formats, we can make these solutions accessible to almost every lab. The EtG application note is another example of how using a cleaner polymeric SPE sorbent can make developing modern methods easier.”

Top 10: Best Ethical Destinations for Your Vacation in 2011

Report Names Countries Where Human Rights and the Environment Are Protected

Ethical Traveler has just released "The World's Best Ethical Destinations." The annual report identifies 10 countries in the developing world that are working to protect the environment, promote human rights, and encourage responsible tourism.

BERKELEY, USA - (Travel-Newswire - December 15, 2010) -- As the ecotourism movement continues to grow, making a vacation choice that respects the Earth is becoming more and more important to travelers.

To assist vacationers with their travel decision-making, the nonprofit organization Ethical Traveler has just published its 2011 report on "The World's Best Ethical Destinations." Ethical Traveler conducts an annual study of developing nations from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe to identify the best ethical tourism destinations. The group focuses on three general categories: environmental protection, social welfare, and human rights.

The 2011 list (in alphabetical order) includes: Argentina*, Barbados, Chile*, Costa Rica, Dominica*, Latvia, Lithuania*, Palau, Poland* and Uruguay. To read the full report including methodology, please visit

Report co-author and Executive Director of Ethical Traveler Jeff Greenwald explains, "We sincerely hope that travelers will take this list into account while planning their 2011 travels. By visiting the places honored here, we can enjoy amazing journeys and cross-cultural encounters while showing our respect for countries that care about human rights and the environment."

Co-author Jane Esberg adds, "Developing countries should be encouraged to pursue good behaviors. Tourism can provide an economic incentive to improve human rights, environmental conservation, and social practices."

Some choices, as in past years, will be controversial. "No country, anywhere, is perfect," notes report co-author Natalie Lefevre. "This report showcases the most ethical developing countries, based on dozens of sources and extensive research. But no place gets perfect marks in all aspects."

Ethical Traveler is a California-based non-profit project of the Earth Island Institute. The group's mission is to use the power of tourism to protect human rights and the environment. For more information, please visit

HawksHead TPMS, Launches New Tire Pressure Monitoring Valve System

HawksHead Systems Suppliers of Tire Pressure Monitoring systems has a new patent pending system for external TPMS Sensors.

Vancouver, Canada, December 10, 2010
-- HawksHead introduces its Patent Pending, T-Valve, designed especially for Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems with external sensors. These new T-Valves are designed to replace existing rubber or metal valve stems of either .625, or .453 sizes in automotive, performance and RV applications which supports pressures up to 125 psi.

Biotage Extends Capabilities with Addition of PEG Resins for Solid Phase Peptide Synthesis

Biotage announces the addition of ChemMatrix® resins to its extensive offering of peptide synthesis and purification products. ChemMatrix offers substantial advantages over traditional PS and PEG based resins for solid phase peptide synthesis.

Charlotte, North Carolina, December 09, 2010
-- Biotage® (STO: BIOT), a leading supplier of tools and technology for analytical and medicinal chemistry, announced the addition of ChemMatrix® resins to its extensive offering of peptide synthesis and purification products. ChemMatrix is a patented 100% PEG resin from PCAS BioMatrix that offers substantial advantages over traditional PS and PEG based resins for solid phase peptide synthesis.

“Biotage is a leader in the global development of tools and technology for peptide synthesis and purification. Earlier this year, we introduced the SyroWave® peptide synthesizer, more recently Resolux™ HPLC columns for peptides purification and now ChemMatrix resins.” says Scott Carr, VP of Commercial Operations. “Biotage truly delivers a total solution to professionals in this growing area of science.”

The ChemMatrix resin is a technological tool enabling synthesis of complex molecules from biological origin, peptides, oligionucleotides and small proteins typically used for therapeutic purposes. This resin is supplied as classical spherical beads, a tried and tested solution in the industry for almost 50 years but leverages today’s need for flexibility and exacting standards of quality and performance in the synthesis of especially difficult sequences.

There are many benefits to ChemMatrix, such as; exceptional stability, wide solvent compatibility, no leaching, optimum loading capacity allow users to achieve higher purities and yields of product, per gram of resin, especially in the case of difficult peptide sequences.

Our team constantly updates the articles and blog with news and building trends, and the online booking form takes the hassle out of booking property inspections,” Mr Tyrrell explained.

“When there is so much information available to the building industry and all inspections needed to comply with NSW laws people can feel overwhelmed, so we tried to collect all the relevant facts and data together in one place to make the process simple.

“We've worked hard over the past three decades to ensure Tyrrells is at the forefront of knowledge in property buying and building and our clients benefit from that knowledge every time we are commissioned to provide a property report,” he added.

Insect Shield® Repellent Work Wear Program Enhances Corporate Occupational Safety & Health Measures

The Insect Shield Program for Workplace Safety & Health developed specifically for companies involved in oil, and gas, mining and forestry operations, helps protect their workers from insect-borne disease.

GREENSBORO, NC, December 09, 2010 -- According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately half the worlds’ population is at risk for Malaria. Many corporations within the oil and gas and mining industries, in particular, operate out of regions where insect-borne disease is one of the largest risks to employee health. Insect Shield repellent work wear offers vital protection against a variety of insects that can cause dangerous diseases such as malaria, dengue fever or Lyme disease.

The Insect Shield program is being offered to oil and gas, mining and forestry companies and their subcontractors in locations where insect-borne disease is endemic. Every day, thousands of these company’s employees are exposed to insects that can carry malaria, dengue fever, trypanosomiasis, filariasis, leishmaniasis, and other dangerous diseases.  Insect Shield’s long-lasting clothing treatment—proven to last through 70 washings—is an excellent solution for employees living in harm’s way.

The Insect Shield Workplace Safety & Health online store  makes protective clothing and gear items available to workers in at-risk locations across the globe. The Insect Shield assortment consists of work wear, professional apparel and accessories—including clothing that also offers sun protection, flame resistance and high visibility—as well as additional protective items such as mosquito nets for use at home. A Youth section was recently added to go a step further and help protect the families of employees who have been relocated to disease-risk parts of the world.

Haynes Griffin, Insect Shield CEO said, “We are excited about the potential for growth that this new market segment offers us, and we applaud the oil and gas, mining and forestry industries for their adoption of the technology and continued dedication to employee health protection. We believe that other companies will quickly recognize the benefits of our effective, convenient and durable insect-protection technology, and will integrate it into their own health and safety programs, alongside requirements such as steel-toed boots, hard hats, and fire-resistant and high-visibility clothing.”

The US Army has adopted permethrin treatment as part of its’ personal insect protection strategy. All deploying soldiers receive permethrin-treated uniforms currently, and by 2012 all soldier uniforms will be treated prior to being issued. Insect is an approved vendor of the US Army and US Marine Corps.

Patent-pending Insect Shield technology provides long-lasting, effective, invisible, and odorless protection against insects.  Insect Shield apparel products repel ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums) through 70 launderings.

About Insect Shield Technology:
In July 2003, Insect Shield introduced the first EPA-registered insect-repellent apparel. Insect Shield® Repellent Apparel technology provides effective, invisible and odorless protection against mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums) through 70 launderings. Insect Shield® Repellent Gear technology is proven to repel mosquitoes, ticks, flies, and fleas through six months of constant exposure to weathering (sun/rain). Insect Shield technology has the potential to be an important tool in the battle against insect-borne diseases and improve the health of people worldwide. In partnership with a number of agencies and international relief organizations, Insect Shield technology is being used for apparel and other items that people use daily to aid in protection against insects.
