THIS LITTLE MICHIGAN STARTUP WANTS TO TOPPLE BIG PHARMA—AND IT JUST MIGHT
30 Million People Are Suffering From Alzheimer’s Globally And That Number Is Expected To Triple By 2050. Drugs Don’t Work, But This Ground-Breaking Treatment Is Bringing Hope to Millions.
Grand Rapids, MI, May 17, 2019 – Alzheimer’s disease has become a global epidemic with no end in sight. Besides the heart-breaking personal suffering of patients and their caregivers, its exploding costs will put budget-busting demands on Medicare as the numbers of sufferers triple in the next 30 years. Add to that the fact that current Alzheimer’s drugs only treat the symptoms and not the cause, and you have a desperate plea for an alternative treatment from patients, physicians, caregivers and family members that is rising to a critical pitch.
Founded in February 2018, Heugenis is getting ready to launch its patent-pending product direct to patients in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom as early as 2019. Utilizing stroboscopic technology, their Memory Lenses™ look like a pair of ordinary glasses, but deliver visual and audio stimulation to the brain, which has been shown in recent research by a preeminent university published in the medical journal Nature to reduce plaque in the brain that causes Alzheimer’s.
Prior to founding Heugenis, Lavine spent two and a half years pioneering consumer, athletic, military and medical markets for stroboscopic technology as Partner in a previous company; their technology was adopted by some of the biggest names in sports as attested by interviews on ESPN and in GQ. She had just begun to explore the medical applications for the improvement of cognitive functions that the treatment was providing athletes when the research in Nature broke showing the reduction of plaque in the brain that causes Alzheimer’s from stroboscopic therapy. She knew then she had to upend Big Pharma in every way, breaking every rule by deciding to bring the non-drug, easy-to-use, product direct to millions of sufferers at a reasonable cost.
Heugenis is going beyond delivering an alternative treatment through their Memory Lenses™, they’re also building a ‘Doctor-Patient Portal’ designed to put unprecedented control in the hands of patients and doctors, while also providing peace-of-mind monitoring for family and caregivers, who suffer almost unbearable worry and guilt as they watch loved ones’ crippling decline.
Besides being the Founder/CEO of Heugenis, Lavine is the critically-acclaimed bestselling business author of the groundbreaking business startup saga Mommy Millionaire (St Martins, NY 2007); she’s shared practical advice with millions of viewers through her appearances on The Today Show, Rachel Ray, CNN, CNBC, Good Morning America, Oprah and Friends and features in USA Today, Guideposts, Inc, Business Week, Entrepreneur and Forbes, to name a few. The company’s Co-Founders and Advisors have experience spanning decades and includes launching, management and growth of national and international businesses, leveraging design, marketing, sales, fiscal management, engineering and operational expertise. A successful serial entrepreneur, Lavine designed and sold innovative products into almost every major retailer in America through her first business startup, Green Daisy Inc. You can meet Lavine and her team on May 23rd at 6pm as they present at Birmingham New Tech, sponsored by Cityside Ventures by registering at https://www.meetup.com/BNewTech-Birmingham-New-tech/events/259337512/
