MegaFood Brings Dr. Andrew Weil's "Spontaneous Happiness" to Natural Products Expo West

DERRY, NH--(Marketwire - Feb 24, 2012) - Premium whole food dietary supplement brand, MegaFood, will host Dr. Andrew Weil at Natural Products Expo West with exclusive events surrounding the release of his New York Times bestseller, "Spontaneous Happiness."

Two events open to conference attendees include a book signing on Fri., March 9, at the MegaFood booth #1204, and a seminar on Sat., March 10, at the Anaheim Marriot.

"Spontaneous Happiness" focuses on achieving emotional wellness through lifestyle, behavioral and dietary changes based on an array of ancient and modern therapies. Through the book, Weil shows how to create conditions that allow the body's innate healing mechanisms to manifest spontaneously.

"For several years, the No. 1 search term on has been 'depression,' and while we discuss emotional health on our site, I felt personally compelled to dive deeper into the condition," says Weil, who struggled with mild to moderate depression for much of his adult life. "The techniques and therapies presented in the book give a more comprehensive approach to addressing the depression epidemic we are facing in this country."

The number of people being diagnosed and treated for depression is growing. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 11 percent of Americans over the age of 12 are taking anti-depressant medications; that's a 400 percent increase over the past 20 years.

"We feel it is vital to bring Dr. Weil to the show this year to share this information with natural product retailers," says newly appointed CEO of MegaFood, Robert U. Craven. "We are incredibly passionate about education and thrilled to be able to work with Dr. Weil to share this powerful message. Our aim is to connect outstanding experts like Dr. Weil with natural product retailers so they can better serve their customers."

Advance registration is required to receive a free copy of, "Spontaneous Happiness," personally signed by Weil. The opportunity is exclusive to the first 100 retailers who sign-up at MegaFood booth #1204 between 10:00-11:00 a.m., March 9.

The "Spontaneous Happiness" seminar is open to all conference attendees on March 10, at the Anaheim Marriott (Platinum Ballroom 6) from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
