SEATTLE, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- First Aid Shot Therapy, makers of First Aid Shot Therapy Pain Relief, today announced the launch of its newest offering, First Aid Shot Therapy Upset Stomach. Upset Stomach is the second variant to be launched in the F.A.S.T. range of products and it is formulated to relive upset stomach symptoms. It comes in a great-tasting, smooth, ready-to-drink, liquid shot form, which starts to work immediately.
F.A.S.T. Upset Stomach Relief, contains Calcium Carbonate – a proven antacid that works by directly neutralizing stomach acid – in a formula similar to that used in hospitals. To ensure a great-tasting formula, F.A.S.T. is formulated with natural peppermint and ginger flavors along with a hint of chocolate for smoothness. Upset Stomach helps relieve heartburn, sour stomach, acid indigestion, and upset stomach associated with these symptoms that may be caused by stomach acid. Each 1.15 fl. oz. (34 ml) bottle is a single dose, and may be taken every 3-4 hours if symptoms persist.
"Felling sick never comes at the right time; it's usually while you're least expecting it, not when you're standing in front of your medicine cabinet," said Mary Page Platerink, co-founder and CEO of First Aid Shot Therapy. "With F.A.S.T. we're able to provide people with a quick, simple, no-mess, single-dose of relief that allows them to manage their health in a convenient and innovative way."
Earlier this year, First Aid Shot Therapy launched First Aid Shot Therapy Pain Relief. A single-dose, over the counter liquid shot that relieves pain. F.A.S.T. Pain Relief contains choline salicylate and caffeine and is formulated to start working immediately and deliver effective relief for your pain.

- It starts working immediately (more than 250x more quickly that calcium tablets!)*
- It's liquid calcium carbonate formulation neutralises up to 8 x more acid than traditional calcium carbonate tablets*
- It comes in a convenient one shot dose
- It tastes great
- So F.A.S.T Upset Stomach truly is faster medicine!
F.A.S.T. Upset Stomach Relief is medication that provides quick Liquid Relief® to upset stomachs so busy people can live their lives uninterrupted and not get side-lined by indigestion and heartburn, it is not a beverage or energy drink. F.A.S.T. Upset Stomach Relief is not just a combination of FDA-compliant ingredients, but also every step of F.A.S.T.'s manufacturing, sourcing and ingredients comply with all aspects and requirements of the FDA.
F.A.S.T. products can be purchased in the greater Seattle area at retailers including Bartell Drugs, Haggen/Top Foods, Barnes & Noble College Bookstores and online at Amazon.com. They are also rolling out in Boston in the Tedeschi chain and several other partners.
Like many other successful companies before it, First Aid Shot Therapy® (F.A.S.T.) was born when two really smart people were introduced and started talking. That conversation was in the Bay Area in 2010, when Mary Page Platerink, former Director of Global Strategy for The Coca-Cola Company, met Dr. Jay Pasricha, M.D., then Head of Gastroenterology at Stanford University. With Mary Page's understanding of consumer behavior and Dr. Pasricha's knowledge of pain and upset stomach treatment, they began talking about products that could deliver fast, effective relief for people's most common ailments. And that's how F.A.S.T. was born. The company operates under the guidance of the F.A.S.T. Scientific Advisory Board, which is led by Dr. Jay Pasricha and made up of doctors from Johns Hopkins University and The Mayo Clinic. F.A.S.T. products are developed in the U.S.A. at F.A.S.T. Labs, based in Woburn, Mass. The F.A.S.T. advisory board is made up of some of the most senior consumer advisory and product executives from around the world, including Susan Arnold, board member, Walt Disney and McDonald's; Doug Haensel, former CFO at Burt's Bees; Ellen Marram, former President and CEO of Tropicana Products; Eric Meyer, former Vice President of Marketing at Sonicare; Mary Minnick, partner at Lion Capital and former Chief Marketing, Strategy, and Innovation Officer at the Coca-Cola Company.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
