Dr. Eric Forsthoefel, a critical care specialist, attended the University of Louisville School of Medicine, where he received his medical degree and attended Louisiana State University for residency and emergency medicine. His work involves identifying life threatening medical problems, acute illnesses and injuries people have that need immediate care in the emergency room. He then determines what treatment is needed. Dr. Forsthoefel is knowledgeable about the numerous medical problems he encounters and is experienced to deal with them.

Dr. Forsthoefel’s certifications include: American Board of Emergency Medicine; LA State Medical License – good through 2013; and FL State Medical License – good through 2014.

In a news article, the topic of overuse of emergency departments for non-urgent care patients is talked about. It explains that it is a major healthcare problem and is a difficult one to solve. One-third of all Americans, that don’t have a real emergency, visit emergency rooms.

Emergency room doctors, including Dr. Eric Forsthoefel, were asked what they think about the situation. He said he has seen hundreds of non-urgent cases, but he and the staff make it a point to attend to every patient. He said it is a serious situation, because attention is taken away from patients who need immediate care; therefore, the department is not as efficient or effective as it should be.

A study was conducted asking why non-urgent care patients go to emergency rooms instead of to a primary care physician. Different variables were used:

  1. Higher educated, high income – takes too long to book an appointment.
  2. Lower income – didn’t have a physician and liked the convenience.
  3. Race, ethnicity or marital status didn’t factor in much.
  4. The male gender tends to more.
  5. Medicaid patients tend to more than privately insured.

Dr. Forsthoefel thinks it would help if primary doctors offered evening and/or weekend hours to make it more convenient and alleviate some of the non-urgent emergency visits. Meanwhile, he and emergency rooms across the country will continue to help everyone as best as they can, and hopefully a solution will be found.


Luminesce, the anti-aging skin moisturizer by Jeunesse Global, continues strong sales

It’s extremely rare that any startup company is able to go from zero to competing with some of the top names in an industry. It is ever rarer to see this occur within the span of just 9 years. But this is exactly what Jeunesse Global, one of the fastest-growing health and beauty companies in the world, has been able to achieve.

Founded in 2009 by direct-marketing whizzes Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, Jeunesse Global was originally started as a way for the newly retired couple to pass their spare hours. But the couple’s natural ambition and entrepreneurial talents quickly began to kick into high gear. Before they knew it, Ray and Lewis were no longer retired. They were full-time entrepreneurs growing their new venture, Jeunesse Global.

From the start, Ray and Lewis approached their new company differently. As people who had already accomplished virtually every goal they had ever set in business and life, they wanted Jeunesse to be more than another way to generate personal wealth. Instead, they wanted their latest company, which would very likely be their last enterprise, to be a life statement. Ray and Lewis wanted to form a company that would create products of lasting contribution to the world, helping people to reach their life goals and changing lives for the better.

And the proof of Ray and Lewis’ sincerity in this mission is reflected in the quality and novelty of Jeunesse Global products. One example is the company’s skin moisturizer, Luminesce. As a standalone moisturizer lotion, Luminesce performs admirably, ranking towards the top in head-to-head comparisons with other products in its class. It is also available for a very competitive price, making its purchase an easy decision.

But Luminesce departs from other moisturizers in its ability to deliver anti-aging results that leave all other moisturizers in the dust. Infused with the company’s secret APT-200 molecule, Luminesce is able to help erase wrinkles, prevent the formation of new wrinkles and restore lost elasticity to the skin, which is an inevitable consequence of aging and a main cause of sagging and drooping.

Luminesce can help people to look years or decades younger.
