Six Pac OTG Bars Now Available on the American Market

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) April 10, 2015

Six Pac OTG, a company that produces a line of nutritional bars for people who care about eating healthy while on the go, announced that its products are now available on the American market at online and traditional retailers.

Six Pacs bars are designed to give people a healthy eating option without having to sacrifice great taste, like so many other bars on the marketplace do. People who are fitness- and health-oriented who constantly find themselves on the go can benefit greatly from carrying these bars with them to give them a nutritious snack when food options are otherwise limited.

Ive lived a lifestyle where I was constantly on the run for business, and its so easy when youre living that life to stop at the drive through to satisfy your cravings, said Ron Dichter, owner and founder of Six Pac OTG. These bars give people a quick and easy way to tide themselves over while still being able to maintain their focus on living a healthy lifestyle.

The Six Pac bars are composed almost entirely of organic ingredients like nuts and fruits. Many similar nutritional bars use synthetic ingredients and artificial sweeteners preservatives that give them a somewhat chemical taste, whereas only three of Six Pacs bars use any form of sweetener, and one that is completely natural.

Despite the lack of preservatives in Six Pac bars, they still have a six month shelf life because of the unique packaging they contain. Every bar is wrapped in foil that is three times the standard industry thickness, as well as a plastic shrink wrap to preserve freshness. These bars do not get dry or flaky they maintain their texture and their nutritional qualities for months after they hit the shelves.

Were very excited to bring our bars to a wider audience, said Dichter. We strongly believe that we can give people of all ages who care about eating well and staying fit a way to do exactly that without having to do a ton of research into what products to buy. These bars taste good and they keep you feeling energized and healthy. What more could you ask for?

Six Pac OTG bars are organic and high in protein, and have gone through rigorous certification processes to be labeled 100 percent gluten free. The bars are produced using only a few natural ingredients, and they come in a variety of different flavors.

Deringers Wellness Initiatives Receive Praise

Saint Albans, Vermont (PRWEB) March 11, 2015

Deringers commitment to employee wellness has recently been recognized with two Vermont state wellness awards. On March 25, 2015, Deringer will be presented with the Worksite Wellness Award by the Governors Council on Physical Fitness and Sports and the Vermont Department of Health. This is the second consecutive year that Deringer has been honored with this award, which applauds an employee wellness program that decreases absenteeism, reduces employee turnover, and lowers healthcare costs. Additionally, Deringer has received a silver status participant certificate as a Breastfeeding Friendly Employer, which recognizes Deringers adoption of breastfeeding-friendly policies in the workplace.

Deringer is one of 92 businesses receiving the Worksite Wellness Award.

Worksites that promote healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco use cessation, and breastfeeding, contribute to the overall health and wellness of all Vermonters, and they are one of the key reasons we are routinely rated the nations healthiest state, said Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD.

Although the award recognizes Deringers Vermont program, the companys initiative extends to its 30 customer service centers and all employees in the US and Canada. The program includes educational components, fitness involvement challenges, and participation in national awareness campaigns.

According to a 2013 study from the Department of Labor and US Department of Health and Human services, about 46% of employees participated in employer-sponsored wellness programs. Deringers employee participation exceeded the national average with approximately 72% of employees actively involved in the 2014 corporate wellness initiatives.

These events are part of Deringers corporate wellness program that encourages healthy lifestyles and provides education surrounding many wellness topics. Were excited about our successful transition from an awareness-level to a more hands-on level of participation among our employees. We continually strive to develop employees that are happier and healthier, said Human Resources Manager, Rebecca Greenough.

Partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont, Deringer delivered other themes on nutrition, stress reduction, and an employee invest in you program that focuses on mind and body. As an additional benefit of the wellness program, Deringer employees were motivated to participate in community walks and other wellness programs not formally part of the corporate wellness plan. In addition to group walking challenges, the strength-building portion was the most successful of the companys 2014 wellness initiatives.

Deringers wellness strategy includes regular participation in, and communication regarding, national health awareness events. Employees from Deringer attended the American Heart Associations Go Red for Women event in Vermont on January 29th, which focused on womens heart health education. Deringer sponsored the Vermont event and brought awareness of the cause throughout the organization’s 30 offices by encouraging employees to wear red in support of the national Go Red for Women campaign.

Forbes: Bone Soup Boosts the Immune System; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Reviews a Report

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March 08, 2015

Infected with a latent virus such as herpes, HPV, EBV, CMV, or HCV? The CBCD, which conducted two separate post-marketing clinical studies on the natural antiviral formula of Novirin, recommends taking this remedy against these latent viruses. – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Soups like chicken soup or some stews, which use animal bones as a base may help boost the immune system. (1) Whats better than a hot bowl of homemade soup during a cold winter day? Almost every culture throughout history has used bone broth for its nutritional significance, versatility and overall deliciousness the term Jewish penicillin is used for chicken soup, known to inhibit cell inflammation and mitigate cold symptoms. And the English sip beef tea, or beef broth, used since the Victorian era. helps the immune system by carrying oxygen to cells in the body. (See doctorauer.com) (2) Additionally, an article on Dr. Frank Lipmans website notes that A traditional folk remedy for colds and flus, bone broth provides a rich array of nutrients (especially gelatin) which support your immune system. (See drfranklipman.com, from June 3, 2014) (3)

We believe in a comprehensive, positive blend of natural and Western medicines. Its clear that a healthy diet, which includes foods, such as bone based broths, is essential. These soups help provide building blocks for the immune system. They help target active cold and flu viruses, and thats important. In addition to these soups, we recommend taking Novirin against viruses in the latent form, which is based on our clinical studies. Greg Bennett, CBCD

The formula of Novirin was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin formula is effective against a broad range of viruses, including the herpes simplex family of viruses (HSV-1 and HSV-2), the human papillomavirus (HPV), the Epstein Barr virus (EBV), the human cytomegalovirus (CMV), and the hepatitis C virus (HCV). The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, individuals infected with (a latent virus) reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment (4) The study authors also wrote that, we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms. (4)

Novirin can be ordered online through the product website, here: http://www.novirin.com

Novirin is a natural antiviral dietary supplement. Its formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses.

To date, Novirin is the only natural antiviral product on the market with published clinical studies that support its claims.

There are a few ways, in which bone broth helps the immune system. For example, people with Celiac disease who suffer from a variety of digestive problems due to an intolerance to gluten, often find bone broth is a way to superfeed the system without causing digestive discomfort. I have even started prescribing it to my patients who cannot digest supplements comfortably. In this example, the immune system has become so hyper-vigilant in attacking gluten stressors, that it may also attack beneficial foods such as celery, navy beans and chicken. The body uses the collagen and other connective tissues in the broth to rebuild the damaged tissues like the intestinal lining. In this way, the bone broth heals the gut without irritating the body. (2) The elements that infuse bone broth, glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, and gelatin support your joints, bones, and reduce inflammation throughout your body. (3)

The CBCD points out that all patients with coeliac disease were also found to be EBV seropositive. (See the Irish Journal of Medical Science, from 1985) (4) In other words, the Epstein Barr virus may be the underlying cause of the immune disorder. While bone broth may help repair the damage caused by the disorder, the CBCD recommends taking Novirin, which was designed to help the immune system target the virus in its latent form.

Dr. Auer recommends that when making your own tasty broth, bones, are readily available from your neighborhood butcher for very affordable prices. Be sure to use the bones and other materials from grass-fed beef, wild-caught fish, or pasture-raised chicken. This will ensure the fat in the broth is less inflammatory and of higher nutritional value. (2) Dr. Auer is an integrative health physician from Zurich, Switzerland.

We recommend eating bone based soups and taking Novirin. On the one hand, youre helping to repair damage viruses may have already caused, and on the other, youre helping your immune system to fight latent viruses that may cause auto-immune disorders in the first place. – Greg Bennett, CBCD

The Healthy Eating Obsession: A Live Tweet Chat with Patricia Pitts, PhD and Karen David, RD

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 09, 2015

The Bella Vita, one of the nations leading treatment centers for eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, will host a Twitter chat from 11 am to 12 pm Pacific time on Tuesday, March 24th with Patricia Pitts, PhD, the centers Founder and CEO, and Karen David, RD, the centers Director of Nutritional Services. The subject for the chat, The Healthy Eating Obsession, is designated by the hashtag #EDinsight. Participants can follow the chat on any web chat application such as http://www.tweetchat.com.

The Bella Vitas Dr. Pitts and David has treated and guided thousands of patients on the path back to wellness. There are patients who have walked through our doors confused as to how or why they needed treatment for an eating disorder; in their minds all they believe is that, I eat pure and clean! Hey, I dont have a problem. We are supposed to eat healthy! explained David. The issue is not in eating healthy; its in obsessively eating healthy.

The obsession of healthy eating can lead to orthorexia nervosa. In 1997, Steve Bratman, MD coined the term, from the Greek words: ortho (correct, right), orexis (appetite, desire), from his personal struggles with healthy eating. Someone struggling with orthorexia has a, maniacal obsession for healthy food. The disorder parallels anorexia nervosa where orthorexics will restrict themselves and focus only on eating foods of high quality foods that are pure and clean.

Dr. Pitts has experienced similar patient sharing during eating disorder treatment, To someone with orthorexia, the change in eating behaviors initially begins with good intention. There is a desire to eat and be healthy. Sadly, the compulsion becomes greater than the intention; thus, exposing underlying psychological dynamics such as: a need for control, increase in anxiety, poor body image and ultimately, low self-worth.

During the tweet chat, Dr. Pitts and David will provide clinical and nutritional insight on how healthy eating becomes obsessive while inspiring hope towards wellness for those struggling with orthorexia. Dr. Pitts explained, I understand the orthorexics struggles; I have lived my own eating disorder journey. I firmly believe that each individual with an eating disorder is already whole. Their eating disorder protects them from uncovering missing pieces in their lives. I am honored to walk beside our patients as they discover that they can live fulfilled lives without their eating disorder behaviors. Pitts concluded, Together, we can embrace those missing pieces to find freedom from their eating disorder. Their freedom leads to reestablishing a healthy self-esteem and fostering positive relationships with others, body image, and food.

About The Bella Vita.

The caring staff at The Bella Vita understands the complexities of eating disorders (ED) and why so many inevitably turn to food or turn away from food as a means of coping with lifes everyday challenges. We guide our patients through a myriad of seemingly insurmountable obstacles associated with ED helping to uncover the connections between food and life that result in a decline in physical and mental health.

Beatbike’s Bailey Huff Believes Now Is The Right Time to Take Action And Get Fit

Tarzana, California (PRWEB) January 07, 2015

Beatbike spinning instructor Bailey Huff wants to inspire people to start the New Year out right by getting fit, eating right, staying healthy and above all… being happy.

Paired with appropriate nutrition, spinning is a major contributor to keeping people healthy and out of the medical care system. Experts agree that exercise in general has always been a mood booster. Seeing positive change in riders is what motivates Bailey.

In January, 2013 Bailey arrived in New York City with nothing but a one-way ticket, two suitcases and a burning desire to become a spinning instructor. Nine months later while teaching at Crank Cycle Studio on the Upper East Side, Rate Your Burn rated Bailey The Most Popular Fitness Instructor in New York City. (October 18th, 2013)

Now Bailey has brought her talents to the popular new spinning studio, Beatbike, in Tarzana, California. Beatbike is the Valley’s new spinning destination.

Bailey is a life long athlete who was a basketball star at Montclair Prep in the San Fernando Valley. (You can see Bailey play basketball on youtube) As a freshman she won the Los Angeles Sparks two on two tournament at Staples Center in front of nine thousand fans. Bailey went on to play one year at Santa Barbara City College before breaking her leg in practice. It was during her recovery from the devastating injury and a need to stay in shape that brought Bailey to her love of spinning.

Bailey says, Spinning is an incredible workout where you get rock hard thighs, carved calves and a tight butt while doing an activity thats freeing, fun and social. Because spinning is a low-impact exercise, your hips and knees are strengthened so you feel better and less beat up after a ride compared to running. When most 24-year-olds are going out at night in Los Angeles, Bailey spends the evening eating healthy, putting her playlists together before getting up at 4:30 am to teach her first class at 6 am.

Efforts to Increase Reach and Impact of Obesity Prevention Work in Early Care and Education Centers Shows National Promise

WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) December 08, 2014

A childhood obesity intervention targeting early care and education providers in six states shows promise for changing nutrition, physical activity and breastfeeding environments that will greatly benefit young children nationwide. This national model, led by Nemours Childrens Health System, with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), outlines a successful approach to spread, scale, and sustain proven obesity prevention efforts to increase the reach and impact of such programs. The model is detailed in a case study featured in the December issue of Health Affairs.

The successful spread and scale of our evidence-based early care and education strategy provides both a model and lessons learned for the field as we continue to work together to reverse the alarming trends in childhood obesity, said Debbie Chang, MPH, enterprise vice president of policy and prevention at Nemours Childrens Health System. Focusing on the spreading, scaling and sustaining promising strategies has the potential to increase the reach and impact of efforts in obesity prevention and help ensure their ever-growing impact on population health.

Nemours childhood obesity prevention efforts began in Delaware in 2004 as part of a comprehensive plan targeting early care and education centers, schools, primary care institutions, community organizations, and social marketing efforts. To spread, scale and sustain one of these successful strategies, Nemours launched the National Early Care and Education Learning Collaborative to prevent childhood obesity in 2012 in six pilot states with $ 4.2 million in initial funding from CDC: Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, and New Jersey. Since the launch, the model was adopted in Kentucky, Virginia, and parts of Los Angeles County in California and the initiative has received an additional $ 7.47 million in CDC funding. Preliminary data indicate significant increases in the percentage of best practices in healthy eating and physical activity that were adopted by early care and education programs in each of the original six states.

The multi-state project supports early care and education providers in improving the quality of care they provide to young children with a focus on improving nutrition, increasing physical activity, reducing screen time, and providing breast-feeding support through a national curriculum and learning collaborative method. The intervention is delivered through state partners, with technical assistance, training, and coaching provided through a national team.

Simply focusing on spread, scale, and sustainability in early care and education is not enough to change the obesity rate in young children. Chang said. Promising strategies across sectors including primary care schools and other community settings must consider spread, scale, and sustainability from the outset using lessons learned from the early care and education sector.”
