Greg Lindberg Publishes Groundbreaking Book on Anti-Aging, Longevity and Leadership

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The time has come! Greg Lindberg, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author and wellness advocate, publishes transformational anti-aging book titled "LIFELONG: Quantum Biology, Anti-Aging Science and the Cutting-Edge Program That Will Transform Your Body and Mind" (ISBN: 979-8866425266; paper). The book is now available on Amazon worldwide.


In "LIFELONG," Lindberg reveals his transformational wellness journey and unveils a cutting-edge fasting program that can aspire immense personal growth and self-rejuvenation. Lindberg also explores the world of quantum biology, the cutting-edge science of anti-aging, the concept of hormesis and shares a comprehensive roadmap to successful leadership.

"I'm excited to finally share with the world my personal wellness journey and a fasting program that changed my life physically, mentally and emotionally," said Lindberg. "I have spent the last three years following a strict wellness program that improved my health, rejuvenated my body, turned my gray hair red again and reduced my skin wrinkles. I wanted to share this eureka moment with the world in hopes it inspires others."

Through a series of 15 chapters, Lindberg unravels the effects of fasting, feasting, high-intensity exercise, concentrated learning, community service, and his experience on overcoming adversity. By delving into the depths of scientific research, hermetic activities and self-growth, Lindberg uncovered the secrets of unlocking inner greatness and living a healthier, happier and longer life.

"In the quiet isolation of my prison cell, I studied the breakthrough research on why we age," said Lindberg, who spent 633 days in federal prison after a wrongful conviction. "Harnessing that, I turned myself into a human laboratory, starting a strict program of intermittent fasting and feasting, high-intensity exercise, profound learning and community service. 633 days later, I walked out of prison a healthier, stronger, younger and a freer man. I did it without medications, interventions, doctors, personal trainers or nutritionists."

Through "LIFELONG," Lindberg hopes to inspire other people navigate their life challenges and help enhance their physical, mental and spiritual well-being. This groundbreaking book promises to be a beacon of hope for those seeking transformation and renewal in their personal and professional lives.

Dr. Tiffany Dudley and Spodak Dental Group Offer Complimentary Telemedicine TMJ Consultations

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Dr. Tiffany Dudley and the Spodak Dental Group team are now offering free TMJ phone and virtual consultations with a goal to help patients suffering from migraine and chronic headaches find relief. It is estimated that roughly 10 million people in the United States suffer from at least one TMJ disorder.

"It's important to offer this resource to our community members who are experiencing jaw, head and neck pain, as well as those who are suffering from migraines," said Dr. Dudley. "Because there are different types of TMJ disorders, it's crucial to speak with a medical professional who can properly diagnose the cause of the pain and then recommend necessary treatment to get the patient out of pain today, and in the future."

The temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are in front of each ear. This joint lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side so you can talk, chew and yawn. Problems with your jaw and the muscles in your face that control it are known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), and can cause pain and tenderness in the jaw joints and surrounding muscles and ligaments.

Symptoms of TMJ can include pain or tenderness in your face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak or open your mouth wide; jaws that get "stuck" or "lock" in the open or closed position; clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint when you open or close your mouth or chew; a tired feeling in your face: trouble chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite, as if the upper and lower teeth are not fitting together properly; and swelling on the side of your face where you're experiencing pain.

TMJ can be caused by teeth grinding, jaw injuries, arthritis, and every day wear and tear. The pain and discomfort can be temporary, or can last many years. Women experience TMJ pain more often than men, and it's most common among people between 20 and 40 years old. TMJ treatment varies from person to person and may include medication, physical therapy, custom mouth guards and jaw surgery.

Free telemedicine TMJ consultation appointments are available Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and are held over the phone or virtually for 30 minutes. Current and future patients can schedule their consultation by calling/texting (561) 303-2413 or emailing

RMA Expands Services to Support CRA Leaders on Compliance Issues

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- The award-winning economic development firm, Redevelopment Management Associates (RMA) is proud to announce an expansion of services supporting Community Redevelopment Agencies (CRAs) in the often gray area of statutory compliance. Due to the frequently misunderstood requirements of the CRA statute before, and the more restrictive change to the statute after 2019, once standard activities and expenditures within CRAs may now violate statutory restrictions on spending. To "Keep it Legal" RMA has welcomed longtime city attorney Claudia McKenna to their compliance team.

For more information, please visit

"For decades, RMA has partnered with CRAs around the state, advancing their redevelopment planning," said Kim Briesemeister, RMA Principal. "With this new CRA compliance review service, RMA will examine current expenditures and educate CRA leaders about the best approach to avoid the danger zones that have resulted since the legislation change. To add to our already stellar team, we are pleased to announce that RMA will access the legal expertise of long time CRA attorney, Claudia McKenna."

Now, more than ever, CRAs need to demonstrate their compliance with statutory limitations on spending redevelopment trust fund dollars. Often a well-intentioned belief that an activity or expenditure is allowed results in the discovery that, in fact, the activity or expense violates the restrictions on spending in Sec. 163.387 F.S.

Whether it is marketing, special events, business attraction, code enforcement or job creation, it is imperative that CRAs avoid the pitfalls of spending trust fund dollars improperly. RMA's team has extensive experience with compliance and the need to amend CRA plans and budgets, as well as reconsider activities paid for by CRAs. RMA will offer a variety of services to help CRAs maintain statutory compliance including: Document Review of CRA Budgets & Plans, Identifying Alternatives and Making Plan Recommendations, and Updating CRA Plans for Compliance.

Led by long time CRA attorney, Claudia McKenna, and Sharon McCormick, RMA's Director of Information and Communications, our compliance team provides expert assistance in ensuring that your CRA meets the exacting requirements of Sec. 163.387(6) and spends trust fund dollars properly. A copy of the PowerPoint "Keep it Legal People" that Ms. McKenna and Ms. McCormick presented at the 2022 FRA Annual Conference about statutory compliance regarding marketing and special events is available on the RMA website, and the experts will be addressing this critical issue again at the 2023 conference.

Ms. McKenna is the former City Attorney for the City of West Palm Beach, a position she held from 2002 until her retirement in 2014. She joined the City Attorney's Office in 1996 as part of a multi-discipline team to assist with the ground-breaking CRA project that would become CityPlace. As City Attorney, Ms. McKenna advised the City Commission both as elected officials of the City, and in their capacity as the CRA Board of Commissioners. She participated in numerous successful and innovative CRA initiatives that allowed the City of West Palm Beach to eliminate much of its slum and blight and enjoy the renaissance it experiences today. Following her retirement, Ms. McKenna was hired by the City of Pompano Beach in 2015 to serve as the City's CRA Attorney. She continues to work with the Pompano Beach CRA advising the CRA Board and staff on all matters affecting Pompano Beach's two CRA districts.

About RMA:

Founded in 2009 by Kim Briesemeister and Chris Brown, RMA is comprised of a phenomenal team of leading experts in economic development, real estate for governments, marketing, urban design, and financial analysis.
