Project Description

 

Rodiah Dorcely

Creator & Founder of The Spirit Diet

In 1998, I made a life-altering decision at 19 years old. I decided to stop eating meat and follow a plant empowered diet. 

21 years later, this is still the BEST decision that I have ever made

I am a graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and a Certified & Insured Heath Coach, with almost 20 years of concerted effort in the areas of health, wellness and nutrition.

I have coached many people over the last decade and desire to expand my expertise into products & services through my wellness club. 

 

 

Kevin Johnson

Chief Financial Officer

A passionate entrepreneur and philanthropist, Kevin Johnson began his professional path graduating Magna Cum Laude from Clark, Atlanta University with a degree in Accounting. Following his matriculation, he worked with a number of powerhouse firms, including the notable Price Waterhouse and Arthur Anderson LLP in their Real Estate Taxation Groups. The business experience Kevin garnered at these prestigious firms led to him becoming an Asset Manager at a real estate firm. 

Kevin also manages the Johnson family real estate portfolio and development. Kevin has secured a joint venture to build 123 units of affordable housing in Flatbush that will be completed in July 2019.  Kevin is also in the process of developing 45 unit condo development including a commercial space. For his development efforts and support of minority contractors, the New York State Association of Minority Contractors, Inc. awarded him the 2017 Emerging Developer of the Year Award. 

Kevin has recently joined Carthage Capital Group as a Director in their Private Equity and Real Estate Advisory Group. 

Kevin’s ambition doesn’t solely revolve around lucrative ventures; he is also involved in his community. He has served as the chairman of the Museum of Contemporary Africa Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) and currently serves as the chairman of the Flatbush Business Improvement District (BID).  Kevin also served as a board member of the Ifetayo Cultural Arts Facility and the Flatbush YMCA.

In recognition of his community efforts, The Network Journal awarded Kevin him their 40 Under Forty Achievement Award and featured him on the cover of their magazine. Additionally, Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke awarded him the 2018 Shining Star Award for Outstanding Leadership in Business and Community Service.

Kevin prides himself on being motivational, active, and ambitious when it comes to his family, his community and his business ventures.

Usage of Funds:

The capital from this campaign will go toward Merkaba, a private-members wellness club, and be in addition to any grants or investments we may receive in our seed round. 

 

 

The Opportunity: 

The Health & Wellness Industry is booming and very lucrative. This is the opportunity to become a part of something that will help establish our identity in this market space. There is 8.7 Billion dollars in lost opportunity due to neglect and lack of representation. 

 

 

 

“A trillion-dollar shift is taking place in the food system emphasizing local food, better ingredient decks, transparent sourcing, reduced preservative systems, better calories and proteins, and environmental consciousness. For growth brands, the target has been white, upper-middle-class buyers—yes, including those indulgent in yoga and other hipster pursuits.

The only problem is, that market is stagnant and becoming oversaturated. On a macro level, it is not growing. New brands are entering a zero-sum game, replacing yesterday’s hot trend with today’s. 

Rather than dismissing them, smart brands should be targeting Mr. and Ms. “Hot Cheetos.” They want better food and better options. And, just as important, they have money to spend on food. Studies estimate that lower-income consumers—those supposedly poor, uneducated, ethnically diverse consumers you may be ignoring—represent over $8 billion in lost opportunities. This “leakage” from the market is bad for everyone: the better-for-you products and consumers who need better, healthier options, particularly in view of the health problems prevalent in those communities"

- Allison Hagey 

 

 

The Challenge:

According to statistics, Black female founders have a .2% chance to raise over 1 million dollars.

The average amount raised by black women is $42,000 in comparison to white male founders who on average raise 1.3 million for businesses that typically fail.

Currently there are approximately 40+ Black Fearless Female Founders that have accomplished this.

Helping us will not only help bring our vision into fruition, it simultaneously raises the odds for all the black female founders who venture down this path after us.

Telomere Test

Longer Life?

Telomeres become shortened over time as a cell divides and replicates. They can be prematurely shortened due to oxidation, inflammation, and stress. These conditions reduce the protective effect of telomeres, damage DNA, and contribute to early cell death.

Telomeres may be the key to the root cause and prevention of age-related conditions.

 

About Telomere Shortening

Telomeres are segments of DNA found at the ends of chromosomes; they protect the genetic data contained in DNA and act as a buffer during cell replication. Telomere length may be indicative of cellular aging and increased susceptibility to metabolic disorders and chronic disease.

Knowing more about the status of telomere length may encourage those with prematurely shortened telemores to seriously consider making lifestyle changes that can positively impact their health.

Shorter telomeres have been associated with cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disorders, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cognitive decline, and other chronic degenerative conditions normally associated with aging.

Adopting healthy or avoiding unhealthy lifestyle choices can contribute to telomere length in healthy cells and possibly contribute to longevity.

Cellular Nutrition Test

Are your cells properly nourished?

What does it mean to be deficient in a nutrient?

Many factors impact nutritional status: food and beverage intake, digestion, absorption, age, disease states, stress, medications, exposure to toxins, genetics, and activity level.

A nutritional deficiency is defined as an inadequacy of nutrients in cells or tissues, resulting from inadequate dietary intake or altered digestion, absorption, or metabolism.

Nutrient deficiency diseases described in the early 1900s represent the end-stage result of prolonged nutrient insufficiency. However, more recent discoveries reveal that years of subclinical nutrient insufficiency (without classic symptoms of deficiency) can cause a less recognizable progression of chronic disease. Insufficiency at the cellular level can be seen without the individual expressing symptoms of overt deficiency or disease. If the need for particular nutrients is not addressed, the insufficiency may progress to early-stage disease.

Nutrient insufficiencies and deficiencies can lead to chronic disease, a well-established fact. Such consequences can be mitigated or prevented using targeted nutrition support with an individualized food and supplement routine.

We have an abundant food supply, how could we not meet nutrient needs? The Standard American Diet, which consists of highly processed foods, is inherently calorie-rich yet nutrient deficient. Many individuals are NOT consuming the daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables and insufficient micronutrient intake has been well documented. Intake of several nutrients falls below 50% of recommended levels in the United States. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) consistently reveal that the U.S. population does not meet recommended intake levels for several nutrients including magnesium, calcium, zinc, vitamins A, B6, C, and D.

  • Nutrients can become depleted due to growing conditions, harvest timing and methods, prolonged transportation, storage, processing, and cooking. Modern farming techniques have resulted in a decrease in the nutrient content of many foods. Decreased nutrient levels in crops are thought to result from a shift to plants that produce higher yields at the expense of lower nutrient content. Nutrient-depleted soil yields nutrient-depleted crops.

  • Nutrient malabsorption is often seen in people with gastrointestinal diseases, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid), and pancreatic enzyme deficiency.

CICA: Celiac, IBS, and Crohn’s Array

CICA: Celiac, IBS, and Crohn’s Array

The CICA is a comprehensive test array that analyzes genetic predisposition, detects specific antibodies, and measures potentially inflammatory cellular reactions all through one simple blood draw.

Test genetic, serologic and cellular markers for celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, IBS, Crohn’s and other GI disorders

  • Genetic risk for celiac disease

  • Genetic risk markers for Crohn’s Disease

  • Serum markers associated with active celiac disease process

  • Serum markers associated with Crohn’s disease

  • A serological marker for diminished antigen exclusion in the gut

  • Optional sensitivity testing for gluten, gliadin, casein and over 400 other foods and substances

     

    CICA Overview

  • Two out of five Americans have gastrointestinal disorders: up to 20% are affected by IBS, 0.44% impacted by Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, and up to 1% with celiac disease.

  • Accurate diagnosis of non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) and celiac disease is complex because both specific and nonspecific pathways of the immune system are involved.

  • The CICA evaluates a patient’s genetic risk for celiac disease, serum markers associated with active celiac disease process, and genetic serum markers associated with Crohn’s disease, and serological markers for diminished antigen exclusion in the gut.

  • Optionally, it can be combined with the Alcat Test to evaluate innate immune cell responses to foods and other substances for the most comprehensive assessment.

Who Should Test?

  • Those with gastrointestinal symptoms and autoimmune disorders that might suggest a problem with gluten

  • Those with increased intestinal permeability which has been linked to autoimmune disorders and other conditions

  • Those suspected to have Crohn’s or celiac disease

  • Those suffering from symptoms of IBS including diarrhea, bloating or cramping

  • Those with chronic fatigue

  • Those with malabsorption of nutrients or iron deficiency

    CICA Overview

  • Two out of five Americans have gastrointestinal disorders: up to 20% are affected by IBS, 0.44% impacted by Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, and up to 1% with celiac disease.

  • Accurate diagnosis of non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) and celiac disease is complex because both specific and nonspecific pathways of the immune system are involved.

  • The CICA evaluates a patient’s genetic risk for celiac disease, serum markers associated with active celiac disease process, and genetic serum markers associated with Crohn’s disease, and serological markers for diminished antigen exclusion in the gut.

  • Optionally, it can be combined with the Alcat Test to evaluate innate immune cell responses to foods and other substances for the most comprehensive assessment.

Who Should Test?

  • Those with gastrointestinal symptoms and autoimmune disorders that might suggest a problem with gluten

  • Those with increased intestinal permeability which has been linked to autoimmune disorders and other conditions

  • Those suspected to have Crohn’s or celiac disease

  • Those suffering from symptoms of IBS including diarrhea, bloating or cramping

  • Those with chronic fatigue

  • Those with malabsorption of nutrients or iron deficiency
