SPOKANE, Wash., Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Zaycon Foods™, How Smart Families Buy Big and Save Big, today announced an affiliation with Drs. Pina LoGiudice and Peter Bongiorno, two of America's best-known experts in naturopathic medicine. Dr. Bongiorno and Dr. LoGiudice, founders of the Inner Source Natural Health clinic in New York, will endorse Zaycon Foods' affordable approach to healthy, farm-to-table food products through various online, televised, and in-person events.
Drs. Bongiorno and LoGiudice have written and spoken extensively on the importance of natural foods for healthier living. Their expertise has been recognized through multiple TV appearances on "The Dr. Oz Show," "Katie" with Katie Couric, FOX News, The Hallmark Channel, and other major media outlets.
Dr. Bongiorno, a licensed naturopathic physician and acupuncturist, has authored several books including the recently-released "How Come They're Happy and I'm Not?" (Red Wheel/Conari), and two clinical volumes on the treatment of depression and anxiety through natural medicines. He writes articles for the Dr. Oz and Sharecare websites and is an expert blogger for Psychology Today. Dr. Bongiorno is a vice-president of the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians and a member of the American Association for Naturopathic Physicians.
Dr. LoGiudice researched extensively on issues related to the mind-body connection while at the National Institutes of Health. She is a co-author in the third edition of "Textbook of Natural Medicine," and recently authored an original chapter on pregnancy and primary prevention in the book's fourth edition. A past adjunct faculty member of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Food and Health in New York City, Dr. LoGiudice, who also holds licenses in naturopathy and acupuncture, has lectured nationally at the Integrative Health Symposium in New York City and Los Angeles.
"As healthcare science continues to show, the importance of healthy eating cannot be overemphasized. Zaycon Foods is making a real difference in the lives of thousands of people by providing natural, non-homogenized milk and other minimally-processed foods direct from the producer," said Dr. LoGiudice. "Buying food as close to the source as possible is a very worthy goal, and Zaycon Foods is making this a reality."
"The rates of preventable disease are soaring in the United States—especially diabetes and cardiovascular diseases," noted Dr. Bongiorno. "Nutrients play a major role in preventing these degenerative diseases; unfortunately, the longer it takes for fresh food products to reach the consumer, the more nutrients become degraded. Zaycon Foods, through its direct-to-table approach, is helping combat this trend."
Zaycon Foods gives consumers a new way to save big on retail meat, seafood, dairy, and produce. Customers place orders online at ZayconFoods.com, selecting a convenient pickup date and location at which a Zaycon Foods refrigerated truck will be making a stop. On the scheduled day, the truck arrives at the designated location filled with farm-direct (or as direct as possible) foods, and orders are unloaded by the caseload directly into the customer's vehicle. Wherever possible, products are hormone-free, fresh—not frozen—and minimally processed. Customers pay wholesale prices, with a typical 50% discount over standard retail rates.
"Zaycon Foods is excited to expand its education efforts through our new affiliation with Drs. LoGiudice and Bongiorno. These world-renowned experts will provide both knowledge and credibility," said Mike Conrad, president of Zaycon Foods. "Our plan is to present Pina and Peter to the public through webinars, public appearances, articles, and other forms of outreach. Together we hope to get out the message that healthy eating can indeed be practical, convenient and affordable."
