APMA recommends Health Enterprises product for runners
BETHESDA, Md. The American Podiatric Medical Association recently issued a series of recommendations for runners, including the use of a self-massager designed for post-athletic activities. Specifically, the association recommended Health Enterprises’ therapeutic hot-and-cold foot massager, a product that carries the APMA seal of approval.
"Some of the most common running-related foot injuries that today’s podiatrists treat are arch pain, tendonitis and blisters," stated APMA president Kathleen Stone. “However, if runners can take just a few minutes to stretch properly pre-workout, select appropriate footwear and see a podiatrist immediately when foot pain occurs, many of these ailments can be avoided entirely.”
Other recommendations made by APMA included selecting a good running shoe, selecting good socks and stretching for five to 10 minutes prior to a run. Frequent runners should see a podiatrist on a regular basis to maximize any running program and prevent serious injury, the association added.

The Natural Dentist introduces sore throat products
MADISON, N.J. The Natural Dentist on Monday launched two throat spray products — one formulated for kids and one for adults — that will be available at a suggested retail price of $9.99.
“When we started our product research, we were disheartened at some of the ingredients traditional throat sprays contain, including up to 50% alcohol despite lingering controversies regarding the use of alcohol in oral care products,” stated Kelly Kaplan, president and COO of Revive Personal Products, parent company of The Natural Dentist.
The Natural Dentist sore throat spray soothes and moisturizes with pure vegetable glycerin and other all-natural ingredients, such as echinacea, goldenseal, calendula and grapefruit seed extract. The Natural Dentist sore throat spray for kids contains no alcohol and features an orange flavor, while the alcohol-free adult product comes in mint.
