The Benefits of Organic Juicing and Smoothies by John Barlow

Organic smoothies and Juicing - John Barlow - MinneapolisIf you’ve decided to make some changes in the way you eat, consider the new trend of juicing. But “Why Juice?”, you may be asking yourself.

Valuable micronutrients are destroyed when heating food, which is why an uncooked juice made with organic/fresh fruits and vegetables is the best way to ensure you receive proper nutrients. With a properly balanced juice, you can easily receive the required daily serving goal for fruits and vegetables with minimal effort and maximum taste.

Why does this matter so much, what are the actual benefits of receiving fruits and vegetables in the natural juice state? Reality is, our bodies digestive systems are literally impaired from years of eating processed food. This means our bodies take in less of the nutrients that fruits and vegetables naturally offer. Juicing refreshes your bodies way of digesting and allows you the maximum intake of the nutrients almost instantly.

We all know that fruits and vegetables are important, but eating them in high quantities daily isn’t always easy, or fun. Juicing makes taking in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables easy, fun AND delicious!

There are several local businesses that have taken this healthy kick to a whole new level and have made a thriving business out of it. Truce Juice Bar in Uptown and the Wedge Co-op are two local businesses that offer fresh organic juices made from a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. These juices are delicious and made to order for your specific requirements. Visit either one for a taste of what a real serving (or 5) of fruits and vegetables can be like. Do your body a favor and get those essential nutrients the right way.

The Benefits of Infrared Sauna Technology by John Barlow

Far Infrared Sauna - John Barlow - Minneapolis

Infrared saunas use infrared heaters and emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat.  This radiant heat is absorbed by the surface of the skin. Common Traditional saunas heat the body primary by conduction/convection from the heated air, and by radiation of the heated surfaces.

There are many health benefits to an infrared saunas:

-Detoxification
Sweating is good for you. It is one of the body’s safest, as well as most natural, ways to heal and maintain good health. Saunas have been recommended for people who are told they have high levels of “toxicity” in their body. Saunas may be useful to those who cannot sweat from exercise due to their health problems, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

-Arthritis
A study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis showed a reduction in pain, stiffness and fatigue during infrared sauna therapy.

-Heat tolerance
If a sauna uses far-infrared technology, the sauna might be more tolerated by patients who do not tolerate the high temperatures of standard humid hot air saunas. This is because far-infrared rays do not heat the air inside the sauna, but they still heat the body.

Meals On Wheels Association of America: Ending Senior Hunger by John R. Barlow

One of the most unaddressed problems in the United States, hunger affects more than 8 million senior citizens around the country. Populations most at risk include women and individuals between the ages of 60 and 69. Also, Hispanic and African Americans face extremely high rates of hunger, as do individuals living in rural areas. Meals On Wheels Association of America works to end the problem of senior hunger by delivering nutritious meals directly to the doors of senior citizens. A recently conducted survey found that the program helps many seniors not just ensure they have food, but also pushes them to eat healthier, feel more secure, and improve their basic quality of life. Many individuals who benefit from the program would otherwise need to vacate their homes for assisted living facilities. Interested individuals can learn more about the program and how to get involved online at MOWAA.org.
