  • Meet the Owner of Skincando on April 26 at Village Green

    by Paula Gallagher | April 23, 2014

    On Saturday, April 26 come in to Village Green to meet the incomparable Sara Damelio, owner and founder of Skincando, the extremely clean line of skin care products that includes the very popular multi-purpose skin salve, Combat-Ready Balm. You can also get 25% of the entire line of Skincando products as part of our Earth Day Sale (through April 30).

    I wrote about Skincando a couple of years ago when we first learned about Sara and her products and started carrying this line at Village Green. Read more click here.

    This is Sara's story:

    It was 1998, and Sara Damelio, a college student, found herself in a skin predicament. Having battled acne since high school, she was thrilled to get a part-time job at one of Washington D.C.’s finest luxury beauty boutiques. She was in hopeful search of ending her problematic skin forever. To her disappointment, however, the unlimited access to top-tier beauty products only further perpetuated her existing skin problems.

    In search for answers, Damelio discovered that many common substances and preservatives used in commercial skincare products are toxic and contain petroleum byproducts and parabens. Deciding to devote herself to learning about natural beauty, she became a licensed esthetician and after several years, an organic beauty specialist.   Read more

  • IQYOU: A New Smart Tool for Individualized Healthcare Solutions

    by Joseph Pizzorno, N.D. | April 2, 2014

    I’m pleased to join Village Green as a Medical Advisor and will be highlighting information on specific health topics that can directly benefit our readers. To begin with, I’d like to talk about a new program that can provide individualized healthcare information to help optimize your health.

    Let’s review the typical healthcare scenario. You get a check-up once or twice a year and receive health feedback, but the only other time you see your doctor or other health practitioners is for managing an ache, pain or sickness. Often a prescription is provided and over time, you may be taking a variety of prescriptions for multiple conditions. By the time the average person is 45, they are taking 4.5 different prescriptions per year, and by age 65, they’re taking 7 or more. And just think of all the costs involved with multiple prescriptions and managing chronic illnesses!

    The solution is to promote health, rather than simply treat disease, and to address dysfunctions and deficiencies BEFORE they become ill-health. By addressing the underlying causes, versus masking symptoms with prescriptions, many drugs may never be needed and others may be reduced or eliminated.  Read more
