Running From Freaky Bananas
“Something will pop up in my head. It could be like the weirdest thing. Like all’a sudden like I have like a jumping banana in my head.” Ryan Lochte
“When you slip on a banana peel, people laugh at you; but when you tell people you slipped on a banana peel, it’s your laugh. So you become the hero rather than the victim of the joke.” Nora Ephron
“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” Will Rogers

Dude, it’s a heating pad
By my second week with the Avacen equipment I was very familiar and comfortable with it. I went from using it once a day for 30 minutes, to twice a day for 30 minutes. My first week gave me one great result: sleep. To some people that may not seem like much, but if you suffer from insomnia like I do, then you understand that it’s a big deal...
9/15/2014, FDA Clears First Medical Device With Internal Game Mode
This clearance allows the AVACEN 100 to be marketed over the Internet for: the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness; the temporary relief of joint pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor strains and sprains; and muscular relaxation…
AVACEN Medical is launching a campaign on Crowdfunder.com to help raise $2 million and support the development of an investigational therapy for fibromyalgia, as well as its application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The company has decided to launch the campaign as a result of the encouraging results from previous studies…
The company has been dedicated to the development of a non-invasive therapeutic medical device and treatment method designed to carry heat to the circulatory system. Therefore, AVACEN conducted a 28 day follow-up study with 22 fibromyalgia patients, from which the company’s scientists observed the treatment ability in decreasing about 40% the pain, according to the widespread pain index, as well as the tender point counts to a level that is below what used for clinical assessment…
The treatment already received approval from the Institutional Review Boards of the University of California San Diego and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, while the trials conducted to assess pre- and post-treatment reactions took place at the UCSD Pain Medicine Clinic in San Diego, CA, under the guidance of Tobias Moeller-Bertram, who is the principle investigator in the study.
Patients who suffer from fibromyalgia currently have access to very few therapeutic options, which are essentially comprised of Cymbalta (duloxetine), Lyrica (pregabalin), Savella (Milnacipran), and Elavil (Amitriptyline). However, even with these options, the relief of the pain, one of the most severe symptoms of fibromyalgia, is only achieved in only a small group of patients…
Our device is relatively expensive at $2,495… Besides the cost, our mechanism of action is a concept that people do not really understand… The AVACEN 100 works with the body’s natural adaptations… It incorporates heat therapy and negative pressure to increase local circulation and infuse heat into a unique vascular network, located in the palm of the hand. Raising the blood temperature at this “single point treatment” (the palm) increases blood temperature throughout the body naturally via the circulatory system. This can benefit the entire body…
We have one cosmetic surgery clinic in Beverly Hills has every one of its patients use the AVACEN machine. We ship hundreds of mitts to this clinic every so often…
Our patents are very strong, and they are very broad allowing multiple therapeutic uses to alleviate symptoms associated with a circulatory, neurological, lymphatic, or endocrinal dysfunction, or any combination thereof…

WV state officials shut down 3 pain clinics for violations
Since January 2015, OHFLAC has inspected seven facilities. Three clinics were denied licenses for health and safety reasons. They include Hope Clinic in Charleston, Beckley Pain Clinic and Med Surge Group…
Marra says her office will continue its review of applicants until all facilities either achieve compliance with the rule or transition patients to other facilities. Non-compliant clinics will be closed as a part of the overall fight against substance abuse.

As much as I hate to clean, I’m glad I can still do it. (No, the woman in the picture is not me.)
