Diet Doc Releases Prescription Strength Love Hormone Oxytocin, Now Thought to Help Naturally Reduce Calorie Intake


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 10, 2015

The so called love hormone, oxytocin, is taking the weight loss world by storm. Known predominately as the love hormone, secreted during pregnancy and delivery, as well as during sexual intercourse, oxytocin is now thought to have some impact on lowering the amount of calories healthy men consume, which can ultimately lead to more effective weight loss. The findings, which were recently presented at the 97th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society on March 8, 2015, echoed previous studies on animals, that oxytocin reduces food intake. Oxytocin is a hormone produced naturally by the hypothalamus and stored and secreted by the posterior pituitary gland. Found to have an important role in the neuroanatomy of intimacy, this love hormone plays in integral part in human bonding. The love hormone is also on the World Health Organizations list of the most important medicines needed in a basic health system, conveying its safety and efficacy.

Aside from the love hormones proclivity to help people form tighter bonds with each other, it has been found to reduce food intake in healthy males, ultimately leading to its use as a weight loss aid. Lead investigator, Dr. Elizabeth Lawson of Harvard Medical School is positive about the potential of this love hormone, saying that Further study is needed, but I think oxytocin is a promising treatment for obesity and its metabolic complications. When treated with a nasal spray of oxytocin, or the love hormone, men consumed less calories during the subsequent breakfast. The treatment also showed signs of improving certain metabolic characteristics like insulin sensitivity, specifically the bodys ability to clear glucose from the bloodstream, which leads to less glucose being stored as body fat.

Dieters across America are wondering where they can get this powerful new weight loss aid. Diet Doc has the answer. Specially formulated by in-house doctors, Diet Docs new prescription oxytocin is available now, direct from the FDA approved pharmacy. This new weight loss aid can be ordered after a thorough doctor evaluation, and delivered directly to a patients door upon doctor approval.

oxytocin, or the love hormone, is tolerated extremely well when administered at the low levels required for its calorie reduction benefits. Since the best method of delivery is via an intranasal spray, Diet Doc has formulated their oxytocin in an easy-to-use nasal spray, a non-invasive way to get the full benefit of this amazing new weight loss aid.

Formulated by an FDA approved compounding pharmacy, Diet Docs oxytocin comes with a guarantee of potency and purity, which is important, as other companies may not operate under the same stringent ethical standards as Diet Doc.

Interested patients need merely to contact Diet Doc, and speak to a representative who will schedule a simple yet thorough medical evaluation.

Diet Doc Introduces New Neuro Balance, A Proprietary Diet Aid to Help Dieters Eliminate Food Cravings


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

One of the most difficult aspects of remaining steadfast during dieting is still between meal food cravings. Many diets end badly due to dieters inability to eliminate the food cravings experienced between meals. Some attempt to eat more often throughout the day, portioning smaller sized meals to be eaten at more regular intervals. While this approach does work for many, others will still struggle with food cravings, even directly after a meal. For those who are having trouble remaining committed to dieting, and are struggling with between meal food cravings, Diet Doc has invented a great new diet aid called Neuro Balance, to help dieters more effectively eliminate food cravings.

New Neuro Balance contains a proprietary blend of powerful hunger staving ingredients like Chinese skullcap and ginseng, both known to help balance mood and stress. Neuro Balance works to help balance key neurotransmitters in the brain like serotonin and dopamine, as well as 5-HTP. Serotonin and dopamine are associated with food cravings and emotional eating, so by balancing both these hormones, as well as other key hormones responsible for food cravings, dieters are more likely to eat at regular intervals, less likely to suffer from stress related emotional eating, and overall more able to remain steadfast while dieting. Using this and other Diet Doc proprietary diet aids, in conjunction with a Diet Doc comprehensive weight loss system, patients are routinely experiencing weight loss of up to 20 pounds per month.

With new Neuro Balance, coupled with doctor supervised weight loss plans, Diet Doc can provide a comprehensive solution for dieters of all types, from those looking to lose 20 pounds to those who must lose substantially more weight in order to restore health. Each weight loss plan is designed by expert doctors experienced in the weight loss field, and feature powerful diet aids like Neuro balance to help dieters overcome the initial shock of eating more regularly and eliminate between meal food cravings.

In order to produce more rapid results, Diet Doc offers a comprehensive, yet simple online questionnaire that can help in-house physicians determine underlying health conditions that may be preventing weight loss. This questionnaire is available to all new patients and easily completed online in a few minutes. Afterwards, a physician will review the results, and contact the patient to discuss the most effective treatments, all based on the patients individual bodily factors. This initial consultation allows the Diet Doc physician and nutritionist to custom design a treatment plan around every patient, and is the secret to achieving such monumental and lasting results.

Interested in Diet Docs new Neuro Balance? The company is currently making it available to patients nationwide, offering a months supply of Neuro Balance for $ 59.95, after a brief but thorough evaluation by a Diet Doc weight loss doctor. Once potential patients complete an online health questionnaire, they can be scheduled for a doctor consultation. Patients find the Diet Doc consultation to be the most effective, as it takes place in the patients own home, and is done over the telephone or via video conferencing without embarrassment or hassle. This protocol eliminates often apprehensive visits to clinics or doctors offices, takes much less time to schedule and complete, and costs a fraction of traditional methods.

Concept Searchings conceptClassifier Integration with Google Search Appliance Addresses Customer Requirements for Improved Enterprise Search


McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) April 30, 2015

Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework, has, in response to market demands, updated its conceptClassifier platform to integrate with and support Google Search Appliance.

Enterprise search remains an unsolved challenge in many enterprises. With an abundance of content being ingested and created, it is becoming more and more difficult for staff to find the information they need to perform their tasks. It is estimated that end users spend 2.5 hours per day searching. This results in increased organizational costs, increased risk, and loss of productivity. Typically ignored as a low priority, the impact of poor search results has now been escalated to the boardroom as a key issue.

Concept Searching has found that Google Search Appliance is being deployed more frequently in accounts with either SharePoint or non-SharePoint environments. Demand for its metadata generation and auto-classification to be coupled with Google Search Appliance has led to the new release of conceptClassifier. Now clients deploying Google Search Appliance can also benefit from Concept Searchings market leading metadata generation and auto-classification platform.

Erroneous metadata populating the search engine index will always result in irrelevant results. Without a third party tool, Google Search Appliance does not currently have the ability to automatically tag content, nor auto-classify it to a taxonomy product. The integration of conceptClassifier provides a new level of granular depth to the Google Search Appliance.

Concept Searchings industry unique compound term processing enables the identification and the correct weighting of multi-word concepts in unstructured text, affording the rapid creation of semantic metadata, which can be used to apply organizationally aligned descriptors to content. The tagging and auto-classification of that content can be aligned with business goals, and the semantic metadata generated can be easily integrated with any third party application or platform that can interface via web services. When applied to Google Search Appliance, the conceptual metadata will be available to the index, delivering improved search results and the ability to more quickly find relevant content.

We have had repeated requests from customers and prospects to release our market leading metadata generation and auto-classification platform on the Google Search Appliance. Many enterprises are seriously considering Google Search Appliance due to its straightforward, rapid, and easy installation, said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. The Google Search Appliance integration feature of conceptClassifier provides enterprises with the ability to capture concepts and relationships that normally would not be found, he concluded.

About Concept Searching

Concept Searching is the industry leader specializing in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management. Platform agnostic, Concept Searching also has a Microsoft Gold Application Development competency, and offers a complete suite of SharePoint and Office 365 solutions. The award winning technologies integrated with Concept Searchings Smart Content Framework encompass the entire portfolio of unstructured information assets in on-premise, cloud, or hybrid environments. Clients have deployed the intelligent metadata enabled solutions to improve search, records management, identification and protection of privacy data, migration, text analytics, eDiscovery, and enterprise social networking applications.

Energy Drink Market – History, Growth, Projections, Trends and the Uncertain Future of Energy Drinks

The energy drink market does not seem to stop its rapid growth. Energy drinks have made themselves a staple in certain sectors and has begun to branch successfully into several other niche sectors.

When a large number of consumers jumped into the energy drink craze, the big energy drink companies began producing more extreme (and some might say, more shameless) products. When another group voiced their opposition to what they saw as big companies pushing unhealthy drinks to the youth, the companies began producing alternatives that were marketed towards the health-conscious sector looking for natural and healthy benefits.

Now it seems there is a specific type for everyone. Although the growth of the energy drink market has slowed since the original explosion a few years back, it has yet to stop. It seems the market has been established and these drinks are here to stay. Despite the continual surfacing of numerous reports indicating the dangers of the high levels of caffeine in these drinks, it seems the energy drink companies feel the health dangers and concerns are worth the risk considering the massive profit.

Weight Loss & Sports and Energy Drinks – What Role Do They Have in Weight Loss?

Sports and Energy Drinks – Who Needs Them?

Sports drinks have become a staple of American athletics. Every major sports team including the NFL, Major League Baseball, and NASCAR, are sponsored by and use sports drinks. Given the large amount of calories and sugar in the drinks, the issue is who needs them and do they quench thirst and really rehydrate people?

Physical activity of any kind exposes everyone to the possibility of dehydration. Numerous factors determine how one sweats and therefore how much water replacement will be needed during and after exercise. Fluid replacement depends on environmental factors including temperature, sun exposure, humidity, and wind, as well as the intensity and duration of the activity. Not only is there a difference between different activities, but between individuals; some people simply sweat more than others and need greater fluid replacement.

Excessive dehydration is as a loss of a body weight of 2% or greater with physical activities. Thus a 160 lb person is dehydrated if he loses 3.2 lb. or more during an event. They use average sweat rates (the amount of fluid lost per hour during exercise) to predict the possibility of dehydration. Here are some sports performed outside and the average sweat rates: basketball- 1.4 liters/hour, soccer -1.5 liters/hour, tennis -1.7 liters/hour and running 0.75 liters/ hour (at a speed of 5 mph.).
