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 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

Hollywood Body Wraps- A New Year, A Healthier You By Carla Dubis New Year’s resolutions are a bit like babies: They are fun to make but extremely difficult to maintain, and when it comes to weight loss resolutions, those are the hardest ones to stick to. I personally tell myself every January, “This year I promise to exercise more, eat better, and lose some weight.” But by the end of the year I could count with both hands the times I actually went to the gym, the scale shows roughly the same weight, and I stand there in front of the Christmas cookies telling myself “Well, I guess there’s always NEXT year.” Sound familiar? You’re not alone! Each January, roughly one in three Americans resolve to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle. A much smaller percentage of people actually follow through with their resolutions. While about 75% of people stick to their goals for at least a week, less than half are still on target 3 months later, a recent study found. It’s hard to keep up the enthusiasm months after you’ve swept up the confetti and put away all the Christmas decor, but it’s not impossible. If you are serious about sticking to your weight loss and healthier lifestyle resolutions this time around, then this article is for you! First of all, let me start by saying that before I sat down with Hollywood Body Wraps Owner, Dalia Cedeno, I was a little bit skeptical about the whole concept of “Body Wraps.” I ignorantly believed they would only make you lose water weight, which you would easily gain back in a matter of weeks. But after spending about two hours listening to Dalia talk about her personal weight loss success story, after seeing her own before and after photos and hearing about all the unique mineral benefits and special techniques employed at Hollywood Body Wraps, I completely changed my perception. At the end of our conversation I left with a lot of new knowledge, a new way appreciation about body wraps, and a big bottle of liquid minerals (which according to Dalia “are very hard to keep on the shelf, because people buy them all the time”) which I have been taking every morning. I have to say that I am now a strong believer in the minerals health power. I am also looking forward to my upcoming appointment to get a

complete Ionic Detox, I will explain later what this process is all about, and believe me, you will want to schedule your appointment too! While talking to Dalia I felt as if I was speaking to a Healthcare professional, giving me incredible advise while offering me a full on lecture about health, instead of a business owner trying to promote her company. She explained that a lot of body wraps done in other places use clay and paraffins, which cause your body to dehydrate, making you lose water weight, like I thought at the beginning. But instead, “the body wraps at Hollywood Body wraps use minerals that are absorbed into the body, extracting toxins from between the fat cells, and restoring much needed nutrients to the body,” explained Dalia. “As toxins are removed, empty pockets are formed and the compression of our advanced wrapping technique creates inch loss, nourishes, tightens and tones the skin,” she added. The health benefits of flushing out impurities and toxins while nourishing your body with the proper needed nutrients is what makes the real difference, the weight loss is simply an “added bonus” as Dalia called it. So how did Dalia became such an expert on this field? In 2004, Dalia was diagnosed with lupus. She explained that lupus is an inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues. Within months, she developed rheumatoid arthritis, gained 50 pounds and became extremely fatigued. She had to give up her job, and nearly lost all hope, until she heard about a trend sweeping Hollywood: Mineral Body Wraps. Dalia figured she had nothing to lose so she decided to give it a try. She told me that after the first wrap she could feel an enormous difference in her body, she had more energy and every day chores were becoming easier to perform so she decided to keep going back for more. While her health was improving tremendously due to the mineral body wraps she decided to educate herself in the matter, reading and researching about all the health benefits of minerals. She is now an expert on the subject, and hearing her talk with so much passion about this topic showed me how much she really believes in what she sells (which is not

Owner- Dalia Cedeno very common these days). She explained to me “the mineral-soaked bandages absorb the toxins the body accumulates every day while simultaneously tightening and toning the skin.” Dalia is living proof that the wraps do work, and you can see it to believe it! After continuous mineral body wrap treatments, Dalia managed to lose 50 lbs in only six months, and not only that…today her lupus is in remission. Thanks to the incredible benefits of mineral body wrapping and detoxification, her health has never been better. Because of that she decided to embark on a mission; to share this life-changing secret with all of us here in Tampa Bay! Dalia now proudly owns and operates Hollywood Body Wraps, located at 2425 S. Dale Mabry Hwy Tampa, FL 33629. At this location they offer a variety of options that can help you achieve all your “healthier lifestyle and weight loss” resolutions. They offer so much more than just mineral body wraps. A lot of their other treatments can help you lose weight and sculpt your body without any complicated, painful and expensive surgical procedures. All their treatments are 100% safe and healthy. They offer several varieties of Mineral Body Wraps, Non-Invasive Lipo and Body Sculpting treatments that will help you get your dream body for 2017. Let’s be honest, as if the pressure of looking good and in great shape for the summer wasn’t bad enough, living in a city like Tampa, that pretty much has nice weather year around, makes things harder for some of us who struggle with weight problems or have

a stubborn area that will not cooperate, no matter how many times a week you exercise or how much kale you eat. Whether you’re a man or a woman looking to trim down, accelerate your weight loss process, sculpt your body or a specific trouble area, Dalia Cedeno and the expert team of professionals at Hollywood Body Wraps South Tampa are ready to help you achieve your goals and resolutions. Contour your body with no anesthesia, no scars and no downtime! The Slim Wrap - As seen on The Tyra Banks Show, The Rachael Ray Show, Ellen, The Fabulous Life of, Fit Nation, The View and many more!

Many pleased clients have already benefited from this famous signature wrap, and are raving about their results! Leslie Ann Guliee, a regular at Hollywood Body Wraps had this to say about her Slim Wrap experience and results; “I’ve always been self-conscious about the cellulite on my legs. After experimenting with so many See “Body Wraps” on page 6.

products that didn’t work, I’m so glad I tried your slim body wrap. Even after just one, the difference was amazing. And the more I do it, the better it gets. Your wrap has given me such renewed confidence that I’ve told every woman I know about it. For the first time in my life, I’m looking forward to summer!” Other full body wraps include the “Fat Burner Wrap”, the “Body Lift Wrap” and the “Infrared Body Life Wrap.” Partial Body Wraps include the “Spot Treatment Slim Wrap,” which helps treat a specific troubled area and delivers results to the stomach, thighs, arms, hips and butt. For some of us, no matter how hard we diet and exercise, these areas seem to be the hardest to slim down. Spot Slimming Wraps are 35-minute relaxation wraps. Each client can decide which areas to wrap to a maximum of 2 areas. Other partial body wraps like the Express Wrap and The Belly Buster are also available. With the South Tampa location being so close to McDill Air Force Base, Dalia shared with me that she gets a lot of military personnel looking to get in shape and achieve an overall healthier lifestyle before starting their military duties. She said “a lot of of these military members come to me right before their PT (Physical Training) tests. They are either looking to reach a certain weight or get more energy in order to pass, so they come in for a wrap or other body sculpting treatments. So many return just to tell me they successfully passed their test, and keep coming back for the health benefits of our mineral treatments.” Hollywood Body Wraps offers 3 types of Body Sculpting treatments: ThermaSculpt, Lipo Laser & Introducing Electro Body Sculpting Electro Body Sculpting SlimWave

SlimWave uses EMS (electro muscle stimulation) technology. EMS enables natural exercise safely and effortlessly to create slenderness, inch loss, firmness and strength. The treatment also stimulates the body’s natural fat burning and toning process helping to give you a body that is not only lean and firm but healthy too! SlimWave targets specific areas of the body (working several areas at one time) to get the results that you want. The stimulation from the electrical current also increases circulation of the skin. Thereby improving texture and tone as well as reducing the appearance of cellulite. A client may choose to do two areas during a visit. Depending on the client’s goal, the technician may suggest to focus on one area for the optimal results of the problem region. If you are a woman and just had a baby, there’s no faster or easier method of correcting the stretched tummy muscles after childbirth. You can start treatments six weeks after childbirth or six months after a caesarean section. If you are over 50, do not worry. Age is no barrier and where there is more room for improvement the results seem even more dramatic, when complemented by a sensible diet and regular exercise, you will see toning and quick and visible inch loss. In fact, we have had individuals over the age of 70 experience the benefits of SlimWave treatments. ThermaSculpt ThermaSculpt is a new, revolutionary fat removal technology that does NOT involve surgery – there is no need for anesthetics, no hospital stay or time off work. ThermaSculpt utilizes a five-part non-invasive technology including: Biocurrent, Ultrasonic Cavitation, Lymphatic Vacuum,

VOLUME 3 ISSUE JANUARY

Multi-Mineral Tripolar and Radio Frequency components. This allows for non-invasive removal of stubborn fat deposits that never seem to disappear no matter of your diet or how hard you work out. This treatment targets cellulite, aging skin, as well as stretch marks and scars! The most common problematic body areas include: abdomen, “love handles”, thighs, buttocks, inner knees, upper arm and bust. Generally, one Thermasculpt treatment lasts 30 minutes depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer. 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. Most of the guests experience 2 to 6 cm of circumference reduction after a single session, with increasing results after each visit. Proper diet and physical activity will certainly improve and help maintain the results. LipoLaser Lipo Laser offers a way to achieve inch loss and body contouring with no pain, no needles and no down time. Lipo Laser seeks the end of painful

and dangerous liposuction surgeries and offers an affordable, safe alternative, which is medically proven to produce similar results. Ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment. Additional treatments improve results further. Immediate Results— Inch loss results can be seen immediately after treatment and cumulatively after a series of treatments! A course of 8 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week. Pain Free— Unlike most other fat reduction procedures, Lipo Laser treatments are completely painless. Patients won’t have to be talked into undergoing Lipo Laser treatments—they’ll look forward to them! Fast Treatment Times— Lipo Laser procedures take only 30 minutes! The patient can lay down during treatments and either read or listen to music and relax, just make sure to bring your own headphones. No Downtime— Since the Lipo Laser is a non-destructive technology, there are no side effects as a result of a

Lipo Laser procedure. Treat All Body Parts— Lipo Laser is not limited to treating only the waistline and can, in fact, target unwanted fat deposits almost anywhere on the body. By positioning the laser pads on the treatment area such as upper arms, abdomen or thighs, fat can be broken down and removed specifically from that area. Diet and exercise alone cannot do this—only the Lipo Laser can target specific areas for inch loss reduction quickly, painlessly and consistently.

I have an appointment to get mine done at the end of this month and I can hardly wait! According to Dalia “This is a safe and effective way to purify your body, naturally. Toxins that build up in the body are left to be cleaned up by the blood, lymphatic system, and vital organs. Those which cannot be cleaned up attach themselves wherever they can. These acidic toxins may build up in the fat cells, joints, muscles and even organs such as the liver and kidneys. The ionic cleanse helps to cleanse by allowing matter and cellular debris to escape through a unique process.” She mentioned that this process works wonders for clients who suffer from migraines,

sleeping problems and chronic sinus infections, which I have been suffering from since I was a kid. How does it work? Similar to a foot bath, The Ionic cleanse uses water as the conductive medium. Essentially, The Ionic cleanse functions as a magnet that helps your body to cleanse by attracting particles and trapping them in a charged bath of water. The field is painless and noninvasive and requires no pills, supplements or medication to operate effectively. Make 2017 the year you fulfill all your weight loss resolutions, with a balanced diet, a weekly exercise routine and the body sculpting treatments and fat burning wraps from Hollywood Body Wraps.

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 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? Well,

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 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).

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 the proper licensing, but at Tampa Bay Plumbers we keep all of our licensing and permits up to date.

Tampa Bay Plumbers have the man power and the technology to get any job done! “We have the most technologically advanced plumbing tools and equipment available.

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.

Congratulations to the Gibbons family out of the McDill area! You are the $1,000 GRAND PRIZE WINNER! We had hundreds of entries and the winner was chosen completely at random along with the runners up who had their photos featured in the collage below. The fact that this picture in particular shows how random the drawing really was because if it were up to me to select based on

the photos, the winner would have been from a more “mom and pop” restaurant. This picture was taken at P.F. CHANG’S. The story behind the photo is pretty cute though as Mr. Gibbons explained he was on his 50th wedding anniversary dinner with his beautiful wife. The couple has been together since they were 14 years old! Congratulations again!

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. Johanna deVryer, MD is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and trained in Anti-Aging / Regenerative Medicine. Karen Evans, DO is Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, and is a member of the Academy of AntiAging Medicine. Caroline Lomboy, DO is a Diplomat of the Osteopathic National Board, a Board Certified Medical Review Officer, and member of the American Academy of AntiAging Medicine. The two nurse practitioners on the team, Natasha Daza Williams, ARNP and Connie Hartley, ARNP, also are trained in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Additionally, Tampa Rejuvenation has a very supportive staff that includes patient coordinators, dietitians, fitness trainers, and wellness coaches who work together to help create individualized programs for each client. Results are gained here because 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.

The results that Tampa Rejuvenation’s clients achieve speak for themselves! 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!

Your Health, Our Passion

“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 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 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. Make an appointment to see why Tampa Rejuvenation is the number one weight loss clinic in the Tampa Bay Area.

More than 60 Kahlo pieces are on display, including 15 paintings, seven drawings and numerous personal photographs from the celebrated female artist and influential icon. The exhibition extends outdoors, where a special collection of flowers and plants representative of those in Kahlo’s own garden at Casa Azul, her home in Mexico, graces the grounds of our Avant-Garden. The exhibit is an intriguing exploration of the life of Kahlo, her striking artwork and her fascinating psyche. Together with the exclusive photographs of family, friends and lovers, the exhibition gives a complete view of Kahlo’s world, along with the joys, passions and obsessions of this remarkable artist. Kahlo and Dali each created artistic autobiographies and their personalities loom behind their paintings, generating a presence that both shapes
