Thank You to WTSP’s Great Day Tampa Bay!

By Matt Selby I want to take this opportunity to tell everyone at WTSP’s Great Day Tampa Bay THANK YOU! It really meant a lot to us to have the opportunity to share news about our Tampa Bay News & Lifestyles publications with the show’s viewers. We really appreciate it! Great Day Tampa Bay, featured on CBS’s Channel 10 at 9 a.m. is quickly becoming Tampa Bay’s

Tampa Bay News & Lifestyles

favorite program to start the day. Co-Host Michael Clayton and I met at a charity event earlier this year and once Michael found out a little more about our local magazines he invited me on the show for a quick segment. I was very nervous, in fact I was so worried about being late that I arrived two hours early for our live broadcast. It aired Monday, December 19th at 9 a.m. and was my first time on a morning show but Michael and

Co-Host Stephanie Webb, along with the rest of the crew, made me feel right at home. I had the opportunity to quickly describe a little bit about what our magazine does in the community and talked about one of our favorite local charities we cover, ToyMakers of East Lake! It was a perfect charity to highlight because they put a smile on the faces of so many children and their families year round and especially during the holidays by giving children in need

Feel Better. Look Better. Live Better. Tampa Rejuvenation – Where Quality of Life Matters With the advances seen in Regenerative Medicine, aging isn’t what it used to be. In a nation where people are living longer, all we have to do is look around to see that some are aging faster while others seem to stay so vibrant and youthful that it’s impossible to guess their true age. So what’s the secret to vitality and youthfulness? Tampa Rejuvenation patients will tell you there is no secret at all! The doctors and staff at Tampa Rejuvenation are helping people to turn back the clock on aging, and to lose weight and keep it off – not with some secret potion – with sciencebased integrative medicine that optimize your hormones and weight loss programs that actually take your DNA into consideration. Not only that, they have a remarkable new technology available – the Viora VForm – that can actually tighten up skin! Viora has been shown to greatly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, to diminish cellulite, and it provides non-invasive liposuction, making it an amazing new tool for body contouring! It works well on all ages and for problem areas such as inner thighs, buttocks, upper arms, the abdomen and anywhere else your fat cells like to congregate. It can even tighten up the neck area. If you are looking for the place that can provide you with the results you desire, the secret is out and it’s Tampa Rejuvenation! Owner and CEO of Tampa Rejuvenation, Brett Markowitz, opened the first location of Tampa Rejuvenation ten years ago with the goal to help people change their health, and therefore their lives, for the better through science-based

nutrition, diet and bio-identical hormonal support. A decade later, Tampa Rejuvenation has literally thousands of great testimonials, four locations in Tampa Bay, and a fifth location opening early 2017 in the Lakewood Ranch community. With a degree in nutrition, Markowitz is a Certified Personal Trainer qualified with the American Council on Exercise and the International Sports Science Association, and holds CPR and AED certifications. Health and wellness is serious business for Markowitz, especially now that he has personally seen Tampa Rejuvenation’s comprehensive approach affect positive change in the lives of so many here in Tampa Bay. “We are getting more and more patients because people aren’t getting what they want from their family doctor,” says Markowitz. “They want to see results, and they are seeing that with us. We have three physicians who are board certified in Western Medicine, but they now focus on Integrative Medicine with our patients here at Tampa Rejuvenation. We want to get people out of the trap of ‘big pharma,’ which wants people to rely of medications. We focus on giving you back your youth – better sleep, improved sex drive, no E.D. concerns for men and no hot flashes for women – and energy to last throughout the day.” Tampa Rejuvenation’s physicians are passionate about the advances in Regenerative Medicine and the many benefits it provides their patients, and all three have focused their careers on the anti-aging aspect of medicine.

Your Health, Our Passion

Caroline Lomboy, DO provide our patients with DNA testing to identify best diet for their body, the most effective exercises, and to discover the genetically based nutrition their body needs. The DNA test identifies the nutrients that your body isn’t absorbing properly, and also helps to identify eating inhibitions, traits and habits that are genetic.” There are a number of ways in which patients are helped to reach their weight loss goals including HCG injections and appetite suppressants, but the integrative approach really focuses on gut health too, offering patients organic, nonGMO products including probiotics, digestive enzymes, fiber support and supplements, as well as a specific gut health test to determine if Leaky Gut Syndrome is preventing weight loss. One of the biggest culprits in the aging process is the decline of our hormones and this effects much more than your weight, energy level and sex drive – though improvements in those three areas are significant for Tampa Rejuvenation’s patients who benefit from bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. “One of the first things people notice is that their quality of sleep improves immediately,” says Markowitz. “We can’t completely defy aging — but we can minimize the unwanted effects of the aging process,” says Board Certified Physician, Dr. Johanna deVryer. Tampa Rejuvenation gives its patients the answers that their family physicians might not be providing. “We help men and women struggling with fatigue, weight gain, decreased libido, hot flashes, sleep issues and thyroid issues.” Markowitz adds that 70-80

Tampa Rejuvenation has a plan for each patient that starts with a full medical evaluation that includes their health history, family history, lifestyle factors, and all symptoms combined with the results from their blood work to customize a management treatment plan. Tampa Rejuvenation even offers DNA testing to help determine the specific needs of patients at a cellular level. If you have the will, Tampa Rejuvenation will show you the way!

“Our goal is to help the body stay young and there are different philosophies of what that is, but it is truly about how you feel,” says Markowitz. “We are looking to prevent metabolic diseases such as diabetes, cancer.” Getting one’s weight under control is not easy, but Tampa Rejuvenation provides the science and support to make it possible. “We

Natasha Daza Williams, ARNP (Not pictured: Connie Hartley, ARNP) percent of their patients on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy use pellet therapy. “The pellets are 100% bio-identical (natural), it’s a virtually painless process in which pellets are inserted beneath the skin, to be absorbed naturally over time. Patients are able to go four to six months between treatments. The results are fascinating! I love to see patients within a few weeks come back and tell me they can’t believe they forgot what good felt like,” says Dr. deVryer. Tampa Rejuvenation’s team is comprised of over 50 employees with various medical backgrounds. They treat every patient as an individual with unique needs and concerns. Through the implementation of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, aesthetics, nutrition, and weight loss, Tampa Rejuvenation is showing patients the path to optimal health and wellness.

Community Calendar & News Briefs GFWC New Tampa Juniorettes

West Meadows Food Truck Rally

The GFWC New Tampa Juniorettes had a great start to their new year. While the Club started with just 13 returning members in August, after a very successful new member social in September, it boasts 47 members as of November! In August, the members wrote cards to veterans to support a "mail call" campaign. The girls also wrote welcome back to school notes to Mort Elementary students and sent them new boxes of crayons. Also in August, the Juniorettes volunteered at an Honor Flight at Home Ceremony for the 120 veterans at the Baldomero-Lopez State Nursing Home. It was an incredibly moving event for everyone in attendance, and the girls hope to attend a welcome home ceremony in the future. In September, the girls attended a Safety Bears 4 Kids workshop where they and other groups in attendance helped create 197 bears to be donated to children who suffer from abuse or neglect. The members enjoyed a rousing Zumba session at their September meeting. In October, the girls handed

out water at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, a favorite event. In November, they volunteered at the 5 and 15K run called Race for a Place in support of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. The Juniorettes painted children's faces and even some dogs. They donated the $30 in tips they made to the Humane Society. The Juniorettes were busy wrapping gifts at Barnes and Noble in

Tampa Bay Plumbers Looking for plumbing repairs in your surrounding area? No luck finding a dependable company yet? Look no further! As we have done all the extensive research and tedious work for you! Let’s be honest, we all know finding a good and reliable Plumbing Company at a reasonable price isn’t always the easiest task. You can spend hours browsing companies online and reading reviews. You may call everyone you know including family members, relatives and neighbors to ask them who they have used before. You can be brave and let someone in your household attempt to fix the problem (probably with not the best results), OR you can save yourself the time and trouble, take our honest word and give Tampa Bay Plumbers a call! Tampa Bay Plumbers are a trustworthy and licensed company, who will work hard to fix any of your plumbing and / or septic problems, so you and your family don’t have to spend any more time stressing,

sweating and waiting on some average plumbing contractor who may end up overcharging you. As a home owner, you have the right to check out the credentials of any plumbing company that you choose. Not all plumbing repair and installation professionals are properly licensed and insured. You can rest assured that with Tampa Bay Plumbers you will be in good hands. Owner Ryan Pelky demands excellence from everyone on his team. “I take personal responsibility for every job no matter how big or small,” says Pelky. There is nothing worse than working with a plumbing company that does not guarantee your 100% satisfaction and back the quality of their work and expertise up. Pelky says, “This company obsesses over quality and our customer experience. I can promise you this…if you’re not happy with something we did for you, I will make it right.” Tampa Play Plumbers guarantees are the reason that so many customers refer them to their friends and family. Sounds too good to be true?

competitors constantly hiring other people to fake reviews online. As for myself, I leave all my personal and business plumbing and septic needs in the hands of Tampa Bay Plumbers. So how did I find and came to trust Tampa Bay Plumbers? One of my best friends in the world, Ryan Penna, plays a paramount role within the company as their production manager. I trust Ryan wholeheartedly, and after hearing him talk so highly about the company he works for, I knew I wouldn’t regret hiring them. As a matter of fact, they will be working

We are true ‘workholics’, from our owners all the way down to our entry level positions,” Ryan added.

on a model home I’m personally building, right here in Tampa. As Mr. Pelky says himself, there’s no job too big or too small. Tampa Bay Plumbers takes care of all the “fun stuff”, like leaky toilets and clogged drains (because your little ones decided to take their toys swimming in things they shouldn’t). Have you ever wondered; “Could I just throw this in the garbage disposal and get away with it?” to then find out, you definitely shouldn’t have done that? Don’t panic! Tampa Bay Plumbers got you covered! They also repair superficial

leaks and bursts all the way through Septic repair and maintenance and trenchless repairs. Ryan Penna and I, sat down to discuss what sets Tampa Bay Plumbers apart from others in the industry. He said, “First off all, we have over 25 years of experience operating locally in Tampa, dating back to before we were Tampa Bay Plumbers. Much of our crew has been a constant over the past decade and our guys have the knowledge and skills that a lot of our competitors simply don’t have. Many plumbing companies operate without

They also offer a FREE consultation and water quality test to check for hard water, odor or other potentially dangerous toxins. So regardless of your plumbing or septic needs at the moment, make sure you take them up on that! “Our prices match, or in most cases, are lower than any other reputable company in the area and we serve the entire Tampa Bay Area. We don’t lose a customer over price very often and if we do, it’s because the customer goes with an unlicensed contractor,” says Ryan. If Tampa Bay Plumbers can help you, please give them a call at 813-Plumber.
