A Special Wellness Report New Medicine Based On An 88-Year Old Theory By Albert Einstein Can Help Almost Everyone Who Is Sick Or Injured!

W

hat you are about to read may be the most important information you’ve ever read. Here is why. Albert Einstein was, quite possibly, the most intelligent person who ever lived. His theories and ideas were so far ahead of his time, that even now, the smartest scientists alive are still discovering his value.

amount and type of energy is restored to these cells. But once that energy is restored...

The Body Can Recover From Almost Anything! With the correct equipment, properly used, low level lasers have been clinically shown to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, increase cellular energy, increase cell permeability (so that the nutrients the cell needs to heal can get into the cell) and even help correct faulty DNA!*

One of his theories published in 1917, worked out the theory of how lasers function. However, it was not until May 16, 1960 (43 years later) that the first actual laser was developed by an American scientist. Since then, scientists and inventors have developed many types of lasers and all kinds of uses for them. They can be used as a scalpel that is so delicate, it can be used on the eyes of human beings. Lasers are used to read price codes at your local supermarkets. And they’re used to play music and video on your CD’s and DVD’s. But now, there is a new type of laser so effective against human disease and injury that it is rapidly changing the practice of medicine. This is a new type of low-level laser which produces an unfocused light that has been...

Registered With The FDA To Be 100% Safe! Low-level lasers use less than one watt of power and they produce what can best be described as a “Healing Light”. Here is a somewhat un-scientific description of how this “Healing Light” can potentially help reverse the damage done by human sickness and disease. As you probably know, our entire bodies are made up of cells. The health of all human cells is based on energy. If your cells don’t receive enough energy, they will weaken and the body will become sick. Call 1-800-303-6923,

Code 6871.

Be One Of The First 200 To Call & Receive A Free DVD! For you to be healthy, what your cells need is exactly the right kind and the right amount of energy. Every time you get injured or become sick, the energy flow to your cells is disrupted. Until the proper type and amount of energy is restored, you will remain sick or injured. That’s what a low-level laser device does. It re-energizes the cells in your body with the right kind and proper amount of healing energy. It may surprise you to learn that low level lasers are ...

Used By Doctors To Heal Their Patients In The Fastest Way Possible! Could you guess what kind of doctors use the highest percent of low-level lasers on their patients? It’s doctors involved in sports medicine. Why? The answer is simple. You see, doctors involved in sports medicine often have to get their patients better in the fastest way humanly possible because every day he remains “unhealthy” can cost the sports organization millions of dollars.

January 2014

What you have just read is a very simplistic (almost childish) explanation of low-level laser therapy, of how it works, and what it can do for you. But this is something that needs to be explained to you much more accurately by a real expert.

Professional Results In a Small, Easy to Use Package! Call 1-800-303-6923, Code 6871 For Your FREE Information Report.

But here’s something exciting! You don’t actually need to go to a doctor to get laser therapy. If you want to you can buy one of these devices and use it on yourself. The best ones come with simple, easy-to-follow instructions and can be used by almost any person with average intelligence. Perhaps the best low-level lasers in the world have been invented by a doctor named Larry Lytle. He has studied lasers and human health for years, and Dr. Lytle is, without question, one of the most knowledgeable people in the world about low-level lasers... and... how they can be used...

To Help Almost Every Health Problem Ever Experienced By A Human Being! Dr. Lytle believes (as do many other people) low-level laser therapy will become the medicine of the future. If you hold a low-level laser device against the skin of your body and turn it on, you will be able to see the laser light... but... you will not be able to feel it. There probably won’t even be a sensation of warmth. Laser light is as gentle as the kiss of a butterfly. But, from a healing point of view, it is quite possible it is more effective than drugs or surgery. Low-level laser therapy is not just the medicine of the future. For many people who know about it, it is the “medicine” they use now. The problem of trying to explain the healing powers of low-level laser therapy is...

It Works So Well On So Many Different Problems, It Seems Like It Couldn’t Possibly Be True! But it is true! As mentioned earlier, all injury and illness creates an interruption of energy to the cells of the human body. The body will never recover until the proper Advertisement

VanY Tours Going Lean, Green and Luxurious A new Valley company has emerged and it’s literally going places. VanY Tours has a fleet of four Mercedes Benz Sprinter Touring Vans that are available for touring bands or other groups that want to travel in style, but don’t necessarily need the space and massive expense of a tour bus. The owners of VanYTours are Scottsdale resident Todd Middleman and Phoenix’s Luke Van Wyhe (the company name is a play on Van Wyhe’s name). VanY Tours was founded in 2013 after the owners saw a need for the services of a luxury tour van that was both eco and budget friendly. “Luke came to me and told me this idea he had for a business and I thought it was genius,” Middleman explained. “I had been looking for something like that, so I could travel with my own band, The Instant Classics. I jumped at the chance to be part of the company.” The vans are purchased as an empty shell and then VanY Tours goes to work. “They’re completely customized,” Middleman said. “Three vans are customized as touring vans. There are five sleeping bunks and then the front is just like the lounge of any tour couch.” The front area includes satellite TV, Apple TV, PlayStation 4 and traditional televisions. So far, clients have included the bands Amaranthe, Jonas Brothers, New Politics and Beware of Darkness, and a BMX tour. VanYTours even rented a van to a family who wanted to take a trip to Legoland during the Thanksgiving holiday. classifieds

VanY Tours provides luxury tour vans at an affordable price; a welcome option for touring bands and vacationing families. The vans feature luxurious interiors and the latest entertainment options, for added fun on the road.

“We also have a seven-passenger van available for shorter trips or intown events,” Middleman noted. “We thought the business idea was a good one, but we had no idea it was going to take off like it has. One area we didn’t expect was the interest from families that want to go on vacation.” VanY Tours is looking to expand. “We’re the only luxury van rental in this area,” Middleman said. “There are not many other vehicles like ours. Our vans have heat and more power and hopefully in the next few years we’ll have 15 to 20 vans.” It also hopes to get shop space where it can build its own vans. The Mercedes Sprinter vans have BlueTEC engines, some of the most advanced and cleanest diesel engines in the world that covert nitrogen oxide into nitrogen and water. “We’re also installing shore power so when the van is parked, you can be ‘plugged in’ without running the vehicle’s engine,” Middleman said. VanY Tours also has drivers available for their vans, in addition to trailers to haul equipment. Vehicles can be delivered anywhere in the United States.

You don’t have to spend a fortune to let your significant other know how special they are. Thinking outside the (chocolate) box can help you save, and it allows you to show off your true romantic side. Not sure where to start? Here are 10 frugal and fun date night ideas to get your creative juices flowing. Go for a hike and take a picnic lunch to share. Check out your local farmers market to buy flowers. Of course, you might want to pick up some fresh produce as well, but something is so romantic about fresh cut flowers. Better yet, plant flowers together in your garden. Every time you walk by it, you’ll be reminded about your time together. Be a kid again. Get out a board game, cards or dice and play the night away. You’ll probably have some great conversations too. photo page

Visit a local museum or park for free. Look at the Target First program, Bank of America card holder program, or any other discounts they may offer. Some parks offer free concerts year round, too. Look online or call ahead to find out details. Have a movie night at home. Redbox or Blockbuster movies are just 99 cents! Go for just dessert, appetizers or even coffee, instead of a whole meal out. You’ll spend less, but it will also give you more time to chat.

Visit Pollack Tempe Cinemas for a discount movie (just $3). If you go on Tuesday, movies are only $2!

A Chocolate Lover’s Dream pasta vixen

This month is a chocolate lover’s dream, and if you’d like to surprise your sweetie with a little morsel of homemade goodness, these are four of my very favorite recipes.

Oreo Truffles

monthly meeting

1 (approximately 1 lb.) box of Oreo Cookies 1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese, softened 1 container dipping chocolate (approximately 7 oz. tub) or About 12 oz. chocolate chips

In a food processor, grind cookies (filling and all) to a fine powder (pulverized). You can also place cookies in Ziploc bag and pound with rolling pin or flat pounder until pulverized. Place crushed cookies in mixing bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for garnish. Add cream cheese and blend until fully incorporated. Roll into about 1-inch balls and refrigerate for about one hour. Meanwhile, melt chocolate in double boiler. Dip cookie balls in chocolate to coat. Remove and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle top with cookie crumbs. Refrigerate to harden. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

Flavor options: ORANGE: 1 teaspoon grated orange zest plus 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier RUM: 1-2 tablespoons Dark Rum COFFEE: 1/4 teaspoon ground espresso plus 1-2 tablespoons Kahlua

Nutter Butter Cookie Pops 1 (1 lb.) package of Nabisco Nutter Butter Cookies 1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese, softened 1 container chocolate chips or dipping chocolate, white chocolate or chocolate

Follow same directions as Oreo Truffles. Optional, top truffles with crushed peanuts.

Peanut Butter Fudge Truffles

14 oz. fine chocolate 8 oz. whipping cream 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cubed

1 pound powdered sugar 9 oz. creamy peanut butter 1/2 pound melted butter 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips 1 cup chopped peanuts

Chop chocolate in small pieces. Place in a large stainless steel or glass bowl. Using a stainless steel pot, bring the cream to a full boil. Pour over chocolate. Let set 1 minute. Whisk until mixture is smooth and chocolate is melted. Stir in butter and vanilla until butter is melted into chocolate. Pour into a container, cover well and refrigerate overnight (to develop flavor and firmness.) Mixture can be frozen at this point for up to 4 weeks.

For Fudge: Mix all ingredients except melted chocolate and chopped peanuts together until incorporated and smooth. Spread into 9-inch x 13inch glass dish and refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares. For Peanut-Covered Truffles: Use same fudge recipe but don’t refrigerate so it stays soft and workable. Scoop into small balls, dredge in melted chocolate and roll in chopped peanuts.

Our favorite entrée was the special of the day— carnitas enchiladas, smothered with a slightly sweet green sauce and cheese and served with rice and beans. In keeping on the healthy side of things, the restaurant offers black beans or its version of refried beans made with whole pinto beans. The chicken flautas were also really delicious. The hard-crunch version was topped with sour cream, cheese, lettuce and the restaurant’s exceptional guacamole. If you don’t order a dish with a guacamole accompaniment, be sure to order it with a side of chips and salsa. The unique burritos deliver a bit of a spicy kick and are stuffed full of your monthly meeting

Pink Martini Shakes It Up Musically By Christina Fuoco-Karasinski “Expect the unexpected” pretty much goes hand in hand with the “little orchestra,” Oregon-based Pink Martini. Since forming in 1994, the band, led by Harvard graduate Thomas Lauderdale, has blurred the genre lines between classical, Latin, jazz and pop. But, perhaps most surprising, is a guest who pops up on the phone line during an interview with Lauderdale. He just finished describing a collaborative album with the greatgrandchildren of the von Trapps of “The Sound of Music” fame, when 25-year-old Sofia von Trapp chimed in. “That’s Sofia now,” Lauderdale said with a laugh. He clicks over to her call and—purposely or unintentionally— conferences her in. “‘Fun’ is definitely the word,” von Trapp said about working with Lauderdale. “It’s really been quite amazing. He had so many great ideas with music and the song choices. It was a great learning experience for all of us.”

the band at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. Additionally, the album includes Lauderdale is just as enamored with the group, which also includes August, guest vocalists Rufus Wainwright, Phyllis Diller, Philippe Katerine, 19, Amanda, 21, and Melanie, 23. “We’ve been having a great time Meow Meow, Ari Shapiro and The von Trapps. It wasn’t an easy task to finishing this album,” he said. Now that that release is in the can, record “Get Happy.” “I tried to make it as they say, Lauderdale as fun as possible by is preparing to head working with friends,” out on tour with Pink he said. “These times Martini to push the in America are kind album “Get Happy,” of depressing. a collection that was “A lot of people released in September. are broke.

There are a lot of things that can be quite upsetting.” So, Lauderdale just tried to find optimistic songs and beautiful songs that he always loved, like “Sway,” “Get Happy/Happy Days are Here Again” and “Smile,” the latter of which features comedienne/singer Diller on vocals. “She was amazing,” Lauderdale said proudly of the woman he met through a female friend. “I knew that she knew Phyllis Diller and I begged her to take me to Phyllis Diller’s house,” he said. Diller prepared chili for him as he perused her paintings. He asked Diller if she would consider writing a song. She said “Yes,” but the two settled on her recording “Smile” by her longtime friend Charlie Chaplin. “Our engineer Dave Friedlander set up shop in her living room and she recorded the song from top to bottom,” Lauderdale said. “She knew precisely how she wanted to sing it and sang it that way. It turned out to be her last recording. It’s very meaningful. It represents her really well.”

20 People to lose 30 to 50 lbs SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY

Serving the Valley for Nearly 50 Years Prestige Cleaners is getting ready to celebrate its 50th anniversary of doing business in the Valley. The familyowned business emerged as a highly respected one because of its values of service and its commitment to its customers and its community. Donn Frye is the son of Don E. Frye, who founded the company in June 1964 with a shop located on the Scottsdale Waterfront. Prior to that, Frye Sr. had a cleaners in Ohio known for its service and attention to detail. The company has evolved to include eight stores across Scottsdale that provide dry cleaning, tailoring and alterations, garment preservation and pickup and delivery service. Some years ago, the original location at Scottsdale and Camelback roads was relocated due to the waterfront beautification program. “We’re happy at Goldwater and Main and clicking happily along,” stated Donn Frye. In 1964, having a drive-thru dry cleaners was a wild idea, but Prestige Dry Cleaners thought it was a great service. “It offered a whole different level of service for our customers coming through because they could stay in their cars,” Frye noted. “Customers responded well to that. We now have eight locations and they all do all their own work. The model we started with has worked well for us.” With such a long-standing reputation in Scottsdale, Frye knows that Prestige’s clients have come to expect a high level of service. Laundry pickup and delivery is offered and is utilized by busy families—some beyond Scottsdale. Prestige stores offer same-day service and people can even get their clothing pressed while they wait. “Our service turnaround is usually the same day or the next day,” Frye says. “Whatever works best for our customer, we can make happen for them.” on the town

Another convenient service includes the use of a drop bin where clients can leave or pick up clothing at their convenience. “With the express service, we have all the preferences on the bag,” Frye noted. “Most of our locations have a locker system where you can drop your clothing off and they use your phone number for the code and you can pick up your clothes 24/7.” This service is a great benefit for those who work different shifts and need to have the convenience of speed and availability. In ’96, an environmentally friendly cleaning solution became available and Prestige moved to the new method and has been committed to it since the year 2000. “We did it way before it was the popular thing to do,” stated Frye. “We think it’s important to take care of the soil we’re sitting on.” They also reuse and recycle more than half of their hangers. “The community we’re in supports us and we support the community and we’re heavily involved in nonprofits. We know Scottsdale and Scottsdale knows us,” finished Frye. “This is not just a job, we’re really tied to what we do.” Frye is involved with the Boys and Girls Club, YMCA and the Kiwanis Club, among other organizations.

A Natural and Holistic Approach to Health Tammy Blackwell loves the natural and holistic approaches to health and nutrition. Blackwell founded Biotec Wellness in late 2011 as an alternative approach to wellness that allows individuals to be more proactive with their health. “We have a revolutionary approach to helping clients with poor digestion, low immunity, stress, hormone imbalance and weight loss,” Blackwell said. Most health challenges stem from issues with an individual’s digestive and immune systems. “It’s estimated that more than half of our population has a digestive issue that mimics other health issues. Our technology communicates with your body allowing you to better understand the functions of the body that need attention. We then take on the town

steps to correct and improve the problem,” she said. Sometimes, the answer is as simple as a change in the eating habits, or adding supplements to the existing diet. Bio Mapping Analysis is a test utilizing ZYTO technology. The body is internally connected and constantly communicating between systems and cells. This is critical to basic life functions; like moving, growing and healing, all taking place on a subconscious level. What would happen if you could discover your body’s preference for nutrition, what vitamins, minerals or enzymes it needed to do a better job? Would you give it what it asked for? Could a proactive approach help you function at a higher level or avoid some types of illnesses?

A next step is developing specialty “Tom’s Thumb” bakery cakes. All the cookies and pastry items are made in house and baked fresh daily. Tom’s Thumb executive chef Kevin Janeski has a long list of quality restaurants on his resume, including Cartwright’s Sonoran Ranch House and Hyatt at Gainey Ranch. He said the customer ratings rank high at his current position, citing Yelp ratings averaging over 4.5 stars with 150-plus reviews. “People seek us out,” he said. “We’re close to major events, like BarrettJackson, and people come out of their way to visit.
