New market touts eco-friendly vendors

Environmentally conscious mart will debut Aug. 6, much to the delight of O.C. ‘greenies.’

When entrepreneur Rana Sabeh couldn’t find available vendor space to showcase her discount natural products business, she decided to create her own alternative ‘green’ market.

The Orange County Green Market debuts Aug. 6 at the Irvine Valley College.  Everything from eco-friendly cleaning supplies and services , repurposed accessories, natural skin care products and Sabeh’s own business Healthy Bargains will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.   Saturdays in the college’s parking lot.

“I figured that if I’m an eco-friendly vendor trying to get out on the market and I can’t then there must be others like e who are also having a hard time,” Sabeh, a Huntington Beach resident, said of her decision to launch the market.

With room to fit up to about 80 vendors lined up for the opening weekend with more expected to sign on as the market grows.

No environmentally friendly vendors will be turned away from her market, she said.

“I really want to build a community, for the market to unite what I call the ‘greenies,'” she said.

However, the market is also build on a foundation of education, she said.

Some of the vendor spaces will be  occupied by nonprofits which advocate to raise awareness of ‘green’ lifestyle practces.

“I also want to pull in people who don’t know about living green and educate the to see how t can fit into their liifestyle,” Sabeh said.  “It’s an opportunity for them to understand that it’s a win-win for their health, families and for the environment, as well.”

The market also has an educational component for IVC’s green initiative and business students: free vendor space.

While details are still being worked out, a limited number of students will be able have access to real-world entrepreneurial experience of running a small business — something Sabeh wishes she had access to in college, she said.

“What Rana is doing is very exciting for us at the college,” said Jeff Hurlbut, the college’s director of facilities and maintenance. “Moving forward, we’re trying to gear things and events so students can have interaction in it.”

The college hosts seasonal vendors such as pumpkin and tree lots as well as the occasional craft or car show, Hurlbut said.

Although the market came too late to be worked into this semester’s curriculum, future semesters may hold the opportunity for students to earn course credit for their partcipation, Hurlbut said.

“I don’t know yet what’s going to happen.” Hurlbut said.   “But I ‘m excited to see what students will do with the opportunity.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Free-Press-Release.com) February 18, 2010 — After a decade of dedicated service to Whitaker Wellness Institute of Newport Beach, Donald L. Jolly-Gabriel, Ph.D. , has been named Executive Director of the Hyperbaric Institute at The Center for New Medicine in Irvine, California . The state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen treatment clinic is located at 6 Hughes, suite 150, Irvine, CA.

“Dr. Jolly-Gabriel will be a great asset to our team,” said Leigh Erin Connealy, M.D., medical director of the Center for New Medicine. “He is one of the foremost experts in the field. His use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the treatment of U.S. soldiers who have suffered blast injuries to the brain is ground-breaking.”

Dr. Jolly was the founder of the hyperbaric oxygen therapy program at Whitaker Wellness

and Director of Hyperbaric Medicine there, for 10 years. During that time, he used expertise gained directly from pioneers in the field — Dr. David Hughes and Dr. Richard A. Neubauer — to successfully expand the application of hyperbaric medicine.

Originally developed for the treatment of deep-sea divers suffering from decompression sickness, it evolved to become a treatment of diabetic wounds and burns. In recent years it has been found to benefit a wide range of other conditions. They include: traumatic brain injuries, strokes, carbon monoxide poising, sickle cell anemia, gas gangrene, near-drowning, smoke inhalation, autism, post surgical healing, cosmetic surgery recovery, multiple sclerosis and many others.

Today there are 66 conditions ranging from

chronic degenerative health problems like atherosclerosis and peripheral vascular disease to diabetic ulcers and macular degeneration that can be treated, improved or resolved with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, known as HBOT. New applications are being developed in U.S. clinics and around the world. “Our biggest challenge is the education of doctors,” Jolly-Gabriel said. “Most men and women practicing traditional medicine today, were educated at a time when the benefits of HBOT were just beginning to be documented. So many doctors are skeptical simply because they received little or no information on HBOT in medical school.”

Creating Hyperbaric Answers (www.hyperbaricanswers.com ) has been key for Dr. Jolly to erase some of the mystery that has entangled hyperbaric oxygen therapy so that information can be provided to people who truly need it and are looking for it. His vision for Hyperbaric Answers is to impart people with the knowledge of this new medicinal procedure so that they can better educate themselves on the positive attributes of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Answers is loaded with a variety of information that can shed light of how affective Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment has become. The Center for New Medicine is making this therapy available on site, at South Coast Hyperbaric Center, where patients may receive treatment for all conditions shown to benefit from increased oxygen levels,” Jolly-Gabriel said. “This can include everything from sports injuries and spider bites to near-drowning accidents, cardiovascular disorders, autism and stroke rehabilitation.” “You don’t have to have a catastrophic illness to benefit from HBOT,” he added. “Plastic surgeons and cosmetic dentists often refer patients for post-surgical treatment. They have found that these patients heal better, faster and with less scarring than without such treatment.” If you reside in the Southern California areas of Orange, Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside or San Bernardino Counties and would like to meet with Dr. Jolly at the new Hyperbaric Institute in Irvine, or at one of the other clinics in San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside or Palm Springs where he practices HBOT, then please call (949) 436-4960 or contact him online through http://www.hyperbaricanswers.com/contact-physician-technician.cfm
