New Study Says Vegan Diet Could Prevent Heart Disease – Zion Health Announces Vegan Skin Care: Adama Minerals Lotion at Chi Wellness in Waltham, Massachusetts

San Francisco, CA. (PRWEB) June 02, 2014

Natural health product pioneer Zion Health takes the vegan ideology one step further with natural, vegan body care products. Today, they will be introducing their all-natural line of Moisture Intense Mineral Lotions as a new addition to Chi Wellness Center in Waltham, MA.

The vegan diet is all the rage these days. J Lo attributes her new sexy physique to it and several other celebs are following suit. Losing weight, however, isn?t the only benefit of a vegan diet. Although its environmental friendliness is well known, recent research at St. Michael?s Hospital in Toronto has sown that, when combined with a low-carb lifestyle, a vegan diet reduces the risk of heart disease by 10 percent over 10 years.

Zion Health is pleased to announce that environmentally-conscious, holistic medicine practitioners Chi Wellness will now carry Zion’s complete line of vegan lotions. Zion lotions contain high-grade, nutrient-rich minerals from a unique type of clay called calcium montmorillonite (Kanwa clay), known for its stimulating healing properties. According to Scientific American (Millot, 1979), the clay increases the production of peptides in amino acids and holds an ionic field of energy that helps stimulate energy at a cellular level. Adama Mineral lotions also contain all-natural scents, which have been used in homeopathic remedies for centuries.

Chi Wellness is a holistic care provider in the Waltham, MA area with a passion for environmentalism. Relying on traditional Chinese medicine, this comprehensive care facility implements age-old tactics proven effective at treating chronic conditions. Zion Health lotions with Kanwa clay are plant based and not tested on animals.

Zion Health’s unique line of Mineral lotions is now available at Chi Wellness and at health food markets and co-ops throughout the United States and Canada. Zion provides its consumers with pure skin and body care products that are 100% vegan, free of parabens, and aluminum and formulated using certified organic ingredients whenever possible.

The favorite recipe was finally found after many failed attempts resulted in dry, inedible, and crumbling lumps of oats. This one was different and resulted in a chewy and delicious gluten free product.

Health Nutrition News commends it not only for its great flavor but also for how easy it was to follow the instructions and bake. The recipe that accomplished this feat can be found at http://noglutennoproblem.blogspot.com/2013/03/oatmeal-raisin-cookies.html. More often than not HealthNutritionNews.org found that recipes often needed some minor modifications or turned out much different than expected.

However for anyone who struggles with baking, doesn?t have the time or patience, or just wants a no-bake cookie that?s always ready to eat Health Nutrition News has an alternative suggestion.

In the video they reveal a gluten free oatmeal raisin cookie that is just as delicious as the one they baked. Not only are they gluten free but also it is non-gmo sourced and all natural.

Could the U.S. Mental Health System Have Prevented Elliot Rodger’s Murderous Rampage?

Lexington, KY (PRWEB) May 29, 2014

Elliot Rodger murdered six innocent people and maimed approximately a dozen others before killing himself, according to virtually every major news outlet. ?Although one is ?innocent until proven guilty? in America, when that individual, caught in the act, takes his own life he gives up his right to a jury trial,? said forensic psychiatrist Dr. Tim Houchin, M.D.

According to this article in Forbes, Rodger posted over a dozen videos on YouTube, each of which has now been taken down. In the article, Forbes writer Kashmir Hill described the videos as being full of ?anger, self-loathing and self-pity.? Ms. Hill even reported that one viewer of Rodger?s YouTube videos, just days before the murders, commented on Reddit, ?I bet we find out this guy is a serial killer.?

Dr. Houchin is one of a handful of U.S. physicians to be board certified in child and adolescent as well as adult forensic psychiatry. As such, he has evaluated dozens of murderers ranging in ages from teens to the elderly. When asked about Rodger?s YouTube videos Dr. Houchin stated, ?Mr. Rodger published multiple disturbing [YouTube] videos in addition to his 140 page ?manifesto?. These were clearly the actions of a vengeful, emotionally disturbed young man.?

So what exactly was Rodger’s reported psychiatric diagnosis, did it play a significant role in the murders and, perhaps most importantly was this a preventable tragedy? Regarding diagnosis, this CNN article asserts that court documents from his parents? divorce specify Rodger was diagnosed with Asperger?s syndrome at the age of 7. Another CNN article cited Simon Astaire, a Rodger family friend, as claiming Elliot Rodger met with a psychotherapist ?pretty much every day in high school.? The same article reported that Rodger was seeing two different therapists shortly before his murderous rampage.

If the CNN articles are accurate, Rodger had access to tremendous numbers of psychotherapy sessions; something Dr. Houchin indicated is typically only available to wealthy individuals due to the expense of such therapy. When asked if Rodger?s diagnosis of Asperger?s syndrome may have played a role in the killings, Dr. Houchin responded, ?Since I have not assessed Mr. Rodger I cannot say whether his purported diagnosis of Asperger?s is accurate. Having said this, if you?re starting with the wrong diagnosis you?re going down the wrong path.?

Although many questions remain, one is especially perplexing. With Rodger posting such disturbing videos on YouTube to the point that even laypersons were commenting he might be a serial killer, why were both of his therapists seemingly oblivious to the fact that he had been planning a mass murder for some 3 years? ?This question,? said Dr. Houchin, ?is complex and much more information will need to come to light before condemning the decisions of Rodger?s therapists?.

About Dr. Tim:

Dr. Tim Houchin is one of approximately 200 physicians in the United States to be triple board certified in psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry & forensic psychiatry. In addition to serving as an expert witness to various courts Dr. Tim is founder and president of 360 Mental Health Services, a comprehensive mental health diagnostic and treatment center based in Lexington, Kentucky.
