In January of this year we were very saddened to learn that Teeccino Ambassador Dr. Jackie Campisi had passed away, after a lengthy and courageous battle with spine cancer. Jackie had seemed to be in remission when in late 2016 her health took a turn. A true communicator and vibrant force for greater health in her Florida community and beyond, Dr. Jackie was also an extremely dedicated and enthusiastic Teeccino Ambassador. She loved to drink it, share it and bake vegan goodies with it! We at Teeccino want to share with you a bit about Dr. Jackie and express our condolences to her loving community of friends and fans.
Dr. Jackie loved to connect with others directly, and so, much of our conversations were by phone. Her story was an amazing one, and I was so happy she shared it with me during one of our chats…
Dr. Jackie spent 25 years in practice as an optometrist when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008. After a mastectomy which took her out of work for some time, and remission, the cancer came back to her spine in 2014. After another surgery, Jackie decided that she needed to make a lifestyle change “Every day since I have marched the march. I’m going to reverse stage 4 cancer without traditional methods. Only healthy eating. “People started following me, enjoying my vegan pies and desserts. I always say, “there is a 3 foot rule with Dr. C – ‘if you are within 3 feet of me you’ll be eating salads and vegan food!’”
Dr. Jackie and her family moved to Florida and she also began working in her role at Hippocrates Health Institute. In addition she promoted the benefits of NuCalm, a product designed for intense neurological healing. She and her longtime partner Greg are pictured here as well as Jackie with their children, Ashley and Avery. Read More
The debate about what you should eat in order to live the longest, healthiest life possible has swung back and forth for years between two poles: high protein, low carbohydrate diets versus low fat, primarily plant-based diets. Both claim to help you maintain optimal weight and healthy hearts for longevity.
In the center is the Mediterranean diet based on eating fruits, vegetables and grains along with fish and white meat. Additionally, it includes liberal amounts of olive oil and nuts to provide “good” fats. The Mediterranean diet also allows wine and thus many find it easier to follow! Read More

Trista is a new Teeccino Ambassador and blogger for A Purpose Driven Wife who has shared Teeccino at a number of events this year. Most recently she shared Teeccino at an event with about 60 attendees, and told us all about it:
“I was able to share Teeccino at a MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) international meeting and EVERYONE was thrilled to try out something that was new and healthy. There are moms in this group with children of all ages, even pregnant moms. I shared it with one pregnant more in particular, she tried the Hazelnut and fell in LOVE with the taste, the benefits it offers and she loved the fact that she can go to bed at night and drink it and not feel awake all night. EVERYONE loved the flavors and enjoyed Teeccino, They thanked me for even sharing it with them. It was a hit at the MOPS group.”
FANTASTIC, Trista! We are so thrilled with the report and photos you sent – thank you! We look forward to reading your blog review of our four new Dandelion flavors…and supporting your future events… Read More
Angel is a 3rd generation gourmet chef and Teeccino Ambassador who has done number of events and cooking classes with Teeccino! She wrote us recently to let us know what she’s been up to lately…
“The host of the first Spring Clean Eating (pictured) became a Teeccino lover instantly. She was already asking me to order her two big bags of Teeccino! I helped her find some at her local Whole foods Market so she could pick her flavor choices and use her coupon. We are planning another healthy cooking event but hoping to target Latinos using traditional Lent recipes revamped. Many people give up coffee for Lent, so I’m going to be making lots of fresh cups of Teeccino to shock their Caffeine-withdrawled taste buds. I’ll keep you posted!” Read More
Ellen, a holistic health coach, has been a Teeccino Ambassador since 2015, sharing Teeccino with her colleagues, clients. friends and on health retreats. She told us about her most recent event –
“Last month, a group I am part of that meets monthly for book discussions, plays and other activities, met for our annual planning meeting for the year. I took the Teeccino thermos of hot water and lots of different tea bags. As usual, they were a huge hit. We had a pot luck brunch and coffee was brewed but most tried the Teeccino (even if it was after their morning first cup of coffee). I love sharing the Dandelion for the gluten sensitive. There are 4 who have severe gluten sensitivity one with diagnosed celiac disease so it is nice to let them know even though all are probably fine that the Dandelion is definitely gluten free and the safest for those with celiac. I made sure they took the coupons and shared where they could buy Teeccino locally.” Read More
