Healthy Living Academies Announces Creation of Wellspring Community Programs, Launches First After-School Weight Loss Program

Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 7, 2007

Healthy Living Academies, the leading organization of treatment programs for overweight and obese children, adolescents and young adults, has taken the fight against childhood obesity into local communities. Today it announced the creation of Wellspring Community Programs, an after-school weight loss program for children and teens that partners with local schools and communities across the nation.

“Education and community leaders recognize the growing issue of childhood obesity and want to do something about it,” commented Lev Kaye, Managing Director of Wellspring Community Programs. “By offering a proven immersion weight-loss program in an after-school environment, now these community leaders and local parents have a solution to help their kids.”

Based upon the highly effective residential weight-loss program of Healthy Living’s Academy of the Sierras boarding schools and Wellspring Camps, Wellspring Community Programs will reach thousands of students with this community weight loss program.

Wellspring’s comprehensive and intensive approach fosters a sustainable, healthy lifestyle in students by combining diet management skills and physical activity with cognitive behavioral therapy. By focusing on behavioral change and extensive family outreach rather than solely education, Wellspring Community Programs aim to be the most effective outpatient weight-loss program for teens and young adults.

Wellspring’s first after-school weight loss and fitness program is with The Woodlands, a community in north suburban Houston, Texas. Wellspring has the support of local medical and mental health professionals, as well as faith-based organizations in and around The Woodlands. By partnering with the Community Association of the Woodlands Department of Parks and Recreation, local adolescents will be given the opportunity to learn and adopt a new, healthy lifestyle.

“We recognize the physical and emotional toll being overweight has on the youth in our community,” said Linda K. Hughes, Recreational Superintendent for The Woodlands Department of Parks and Recreation. “By working with Wellspring Community Programs, we can offer our local kids a real solution to improve their diet, activity, and self-confidence.”

Healthy Living Academies is a division of Aspen Education Group, the nation’s leading provider of education programs for struggling or underachieving young people. Wellspring Community Programs is the community treatment alternative of Healthy Living Academies, the leading organization of treatment programs for pediatric and adolescent obesity. Other Healthy Living Academies programs include Academy of the Sierras California, Academy of the Sierras North Carolina, Wellspring New York, Wellspring Adventure Camp, Wellspring Adventure Camp California, Wellspring Texas, Wellspring Hawaii, Wellspring Family Camp in Michigan, and Wellspring UK. To learn more about Wellspring Community Programs, call 866-364-0804 or visit www.wellspringprograms.com; to learn more about Wellspring Camps or Academy of the Sierras, call 866-364-0808 or visit www.healthylivingacademies.com.

Healthy Food For Pets Announces New Line of Products For Natural Flea Prevention

(PRWEB) June 23, 2005

Flea Free products are the latest profitable venture for Deena Caruso of Healthy Food For Pets – an online store of unique and hard to find natural pet care products which eliminates all the negatives of Pet Store shopping – long lines, noisy critters, “out-of-stock” products, high prices and questionable quality.

“Being a natural pet care consultant, I only want to offer and recommend the safest and most natural products to my clients for their pets. Flea Free products fit the bill perfectly when it comes to exceptional products.” Deena said recently. “They are safe, natural, chemical-free flea prevention products delivered directly to your home.”

When asked why she recommends Flea Free products over commercial flea products, Deena replied, “When people love their pets, they think of them as part of the family. Our pets trust us to do what’s best for them. Commercial flea products contain toxic chemicals that can lead to allergies and many other chronic and potentially deadly health problems. We wouldn’t give these chemicals to our children, so our pets shouldn’t have them either. Flea Free products are the natural way to eliminate fleas and ticks without poisoning our pets and our environment.”

The Flea Free products include a soothing shampoo, an insect spray, an organic yard & garden spray, and a boric acid carpet treatment. But, the best selling Flea Free product is the Food Supplement, an easy to use and reasonably priced liquid. Made with garlic, vinegar, citrus and natural herbs, the Food Supplement adds a pleasant flavor to your pet’s water or food.

Caruso shares that she has received numerous testimonials from clients satisfied with the Flea Free products. One client, Janet Meixsell, shared, “I have been using the Flea Free on my outside strays. I put some in the water because it’s too hard to make sure they get it in their food (too many to feed at once). And I can honestly say that not one of them has had a tick on them yet!!!”

Deena is confident that the Flea Free products work. “The Flea Free products have a 99.3% success rate. That’s why we offer a 100% guarantee. Either it works, or it’s free. That’s our motto.”

For more information, please visit her website at www.healthyfoodforpets.com or call her at 877/877-0665.
