FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

LOS ANGELES—The first half of 2013 has been another fertile period for nutrition/mind science. New research appeared documenting:

  • The role of the human microbiome in supporting mental health. The microbiome is a rich community of bacteria and viruses that co-exists with us within our bodies, outnumbering the human cells within us by 10 to 1.
  • How disordered immune systems create inflammation undermining brain function, contributing to mental health disorders like autism, depression, mood disorders and schizophrenia. Allergies and pro-inflammatory foods disturb immune function.
  • Studies appeared supporting the role of micronutrient formulas in reducing aggression, anxiety, depression and other mild psychiatric symptoms, and more.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

LOS ANGELES, CA - For decades parents, teachers and school administrators have loudly claimed sugar creates bad behavior like bullying and schoolyard violence. Scientists have just as loudly insisted the evidence shows they’re wrong.

Until now.

New work shows sugar overstimulates the same neuroendocrine pathways addicting us to alcohol, cocaine and the people with whom we fall in love. It reveals overstimulating these pathways repeatedly is associated with violent behavior. And it demonstrates that overconsumption of sugar in childhood correlates with addictive behavior in adulthood. Taken together, the new evidence suggests that sugar may be the first gateway drug.

Mental Health & Holistic Health Together in Irvine.

IRVINE, CA - A brand new approach to mental health care is coming to south Orange County. Journey Coaching and Counseling Services, in Irvine, is joining forces with Duane Law, L.Ac., a veteran acupuncturist and naturopath. Anxiety, depression and other emotional issues can often be helped without pharmaceuticals, according to Law.

“There’s a whole natural pharmacy in any good health food store, if we just know how to use it,” says Law. “Some people need their meds. Others find the right nutrients and holistic methods work better for them. There’s fewer side effects and it’s safer to adjust dosages when it’s needed.”

Duane Law Details How to Beat the Fall Blues Naturally
New Book Out 12/15/12

LOS ANGELES - This fall, one in ten Americans will suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)1, a mild to moderate depression or anxiety that appears as the days grow short. Many will avoid treatment and suffer needlessly, damaging relationships and jeopardizing their livelihoods because they either can’t afford help or want to avoid pharmaceutical addictions.

Duane Law’s new book, Before Meds, After Meds: Complementary and Alternative Medicine for Anxiety and Depression presents a wide range of non-drug therapies that calm anxiety and lift the spirit.

“Most Americans take better care of their cars than they do their heads. It’s not their fault. They just haven’t had the info they need,” says Law. “Before Meds, After Meds is an owner’s manual for the brain.”
