New York, NY (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
HealthNavigator, a health and wellness radio show on WOR710AM New York, recently featured Paula O’Neal and Christine Avanti. Hosted by Abe Kasbo, the guests contributed to the show’s weekly discussion of healthcare and wellbeing.
Paula O’Neal, co-director of The Division of Integrative Medicine at Raritan Bay Medical Center, highlighted how the department couples traditional western medicine with alternative therapies such as acupuncture, reiki, guided imagery and reflexology to deliver holistic care for patients. Clinical studies support the mind-body-spirit connection, demonstrating the numerous benefits associated with integrative medicine. Raritan Bay Medical Center is one of the few New Jersey hospitals offering complementary, integrative medicine services.
Celebrity nutritionist, chef and author Christine Avanti joined the second stanza of the show to discuss the importance of a healthy diet and how to properly lose weight. In her latest book, “Skinny Chicks Eat Real Food”, Avanti tells how she was able to shed the pounds without having to put down the fork to her favorite foods. The key to her diet plan is based around the consciousness to eat real food. Avanti shares these secrets as a health consultant on Food Network’s hit show, “Fat Chef.”
HealthNavigator is hosted by Verasoni Worldwide CEO Abe Kasbo and is sponsored by Raritan Bay Medical Center. The show is produced by Verasoni Worldwide, a marketing and public relations firm based in Montclair, NJ. HealthNavigator airs every Sunday at 10 p.m.
