Marking its final Charity Preview in January and looking ahead to a new and transformed event in 2020, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) tonight capped off its 30th anniversary celebration by raising $4,028,800 for children’s charities at the black-tie gala. A total of 10,072 people attended and raised a glass to commemorate the end of an era and the dawn of a new day for the NAIAS and the Charity Preview.
Now in its 43rd year, Charity Preview has raised over $121M for southeastern Michigan children’s charities since the Detroit Auto Dealers Association established the gala. Sponsored by Axalta Coating Systems for the fourth consecutive year, Charity Preview has evolved into the largest annual single-night fundraiser in the world.More
Did you know that if your gut is unhealthy, it can be a roadblock to weight loss – and nutrition? Even if you’re eating healthy, your body can be missing key nutritional elements that don’t make it through your gut.
There are many consequences of having an unhealthy gut. It can cause everything from weight gain and fatigue to anxiety and depression to autoimmune conditions and cancer.Repairing your gut may sound complicated and daunting but the good news is that it can be really very easy. Your gut lining is constantly regenerating and replaces itself entirely every two to three weeks. So I am so thrilled and honored to share with you about Donna Gates, one of the pioneers in nutrition and gut health, and her new 10-day Gut Smart Detox Makeover Program.The program is simple, easy to follow and includes daily menus (which are a special combination of healthy meals and probiotic shakes to build good bacteria in your gut), LIVE coaching support and so much more.More
Most people are shocked when I share that heart disease is the number one killer of women, outpacing breast cancer, diabetes and stroke. In fact, 1 in 4 women will now receive a heart disease diagnosis in their lifetime.1 in 4 women….I want YOU to really take this in and think about that incredible statistic.Women experience A FAR DIFFERENT set of heart disease symptoms than men. Yet, most major studies conducted on heart disease have favored male participants. And, women MUST receive different protocols for prevention, diagnosis and treatment.These statistics are why I am honored to be speaking at and supporting the upcoming Women’s Heart Health Summit.More
I love giving my patients and Health Hero community the solutions they need to live a happy and healthy life. I was frustrated that, despite treatments, which included expensive medications and procedures, many of my patients were suffering. I also wanted to support my community in sifting through the misleading information and clutter online and share powerful health-related research and solutions. That is why I created my ultimate online health resource: Health Hero Premium Membership. It was important to me to get this powerful health resource into as many people’s hands as possible so that is why I decided to keep the cost low (pennies a day).More
There is a newly classified set of metabolic disorders that are being diagnosed at an alarming rate in the last few years (Diabesity = diabetes + obesity). The CDC is reporting that 91% of Americans are at risk for this potentially dangerous set of diseases. That means there is a very high likelihood that you or someone you love could be diagnosed with Diabesity.I connected with Jonathan Bailor, New York Times bestselling author on Facebook LIVE this week where he shared a really interesting story about the 2 weeks he recently spent at The Harvard Medical School meeting with top doctors that are at the forefront of this new epidemic…More
