Physiotherapy is the treatment that overcomes the mobility problems in the patients and allows them to move freely without facing any problem. It is the best treatment to get rid of the muscle pain or any injury that is affecting the movement. One cannot deny the importance of physiotherapy as it proves useful in a number of critical conditions and can help you to regain your movement by following the treatment on a regular basis. Such treatments are usually provided by the specialists known as physiotherapists who are experienced as well as familiar with the different types of treatments that can be offered to the patients. When you hire some physiotherapists, you need to check their certification and experience in this field and they should follow the physician’s guidelines during the exercise.
The weather is warming up and I’ve begun taking my workouts outdoors! I love the fresh air, feeling the sun beat down on me, even while working up a sweat. What I don’t love? That awful wire to my headphones getting all tangled up in my arms as I run, and occasionally getting ripped right out my ear – Causing me to have to stop and pause and fix my ear piece, and even possibly having to plug the cord back into my phone!
Sure there are lots of headphones out there that are wireless so you don’t have this problem, but have you ever noticed how uncomfortable they can be too, pinching the ear? Even worse, some are still loose and the earpieces still fall right out of the ear, especially once you get some movement going.
Luckily I got to try my workout lifesaver- the SmartOmi U8 Bluetooth Running Wireless Sport Headphones. These beauties are soooo incredibly comfortable! They fit into the ear perfectly and snug (so no more falling out!) but they don’t pinch! They feel great! They also have a rubber ear piece to securely place around the ear for extra hold. The rubber is super flexible and stays in place and feels super soft, smooth and comfy on the ear as well. These headphones are so comfortable in fact, I’ve found myself wearing them around my house or while I work for hours on end, even after I’ve finished my workout! They’re perfect to wear for long periods of time!
They don’t look goofy like some other wireless headphones too! They look chic and aren’t so big that they look ridiculous when worn. The sound is amazing too! Clear, crisp, good bass and they’re noise cancelling too. [Read more…]
Today is Earth Day and what better way to celebrate the earth than to try and protect it? Sara Siskind, Certified Nutritional Health Counselor and founder of Hands On Healthy has come up with 6 ways to help our planet thrive by making small changes to our eating habits! Who knew we could help the environment by eating! No matter if you use these tips for cooking, or to keep your health and fitness goals alive, small daily changes = big impact!
See below for Sara’s tips
6 Simple Ways You Can Eat to Help Our Planet Thrive
1. Add more plant-based protein into your diet. Industrial farmed meat has a higher impact on the environment than any other food group. For a healthier and more environmentally friendly protein, try beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds instead. Lentil soup is an excellent source of protein and fiber and is simple to make. I also top my homemade salads with Setton Farm Pistachios and Pistachio Chewy Bites, which are filled with heart healthy fats and protein to keep your energy levels up throughout the day. Another thing I like to do is add tahini to my roasted vegetables to turn a side dish into a meal.
In a weight-obsessed world, it’s no wonder many go to extreme measures to lose those few extra pounds, often times risking their own health in the process. As any doctor will tell you, being overweight has it’s own significant health risks. How then do we find a balance, and with so many supplements out there to help in weight loss, how in the world do we know what to safely and properly take?
For many, limiting calories, eating smaller meals more often, making better food choices, and working out regularly is enough to help shed that weight, although oftentimes, not fast as this can be a very slow process, but generally a more healthy one with few health and safety risks. Still, only losing about 2 pounds a week (on a good week) is about as good as you will do, at least for most of us (especially women, as men are able to lose weight quicker).
Sometimes though, some of us find ourselves in situations where no matter how well we eat and how regularly we work out, those pounds are just not coming off. In which case, seeing your doctor will most likely benefit you best, as trouble losing weight can often be associated with health issues such as an underactive thyroid, and your doctor can help you rule this out or any other issues that may be keeping the weight stuck to you. Your Doctor can also help aid you in finding supplements that can be beneficial to your weight loss
Over the years we’ve seen many drugs and supplements come on the market that are able to do just that, but oftentimes may not be found safe for most users. One such drug is Phentermine. Phentermine is a psychostimulant drug of the substituted amphetamine chemical class. Similar to amphetamine, it helps raise energy and suppresses the appetite, but should only be taken short-term, and with the recommendation and watchful eye of your doctor, as Phentermine can produce cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and CNS side effects, as well as rare cases of pulmonary hypertension and cardiac valvular disease.
Spring is here and that means finally being able to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer weather!
April has been a busy month for me as I’ve been doing a lot around the house, yard, and even getting some maintenance done on my cars to be ready for the warmer months! Spring cleaning, gardening, and some home organization have all been made easier this year thanks to a handy tool that keeps my knees pain-free and my body able to last longer when getting down and dirty!
The soft, cushy Knee Cloud comes in handy WAY more often than you think! I’ve already used it for gardening, meditating, sitting at my desk for hours on end, and even while making my video for this blog post!
This perfectly sized, thick, yet lightweight knee cushion works great for bathtime, any projects you may have around the house, cleaning, yoga, sitting on bleachers watching sporting events, you name it! The list is endless! I keep mine handy and nearby as I’ve found I keep finding new ways to use it!
It is incredibly soft and cushy, and thanks to being made of memory foam – it’s super supportive for the knees and body. Memory foam is also amazing for holding strong and not flattening or breaking down over time!
It is also made to last too! Thanks to the strong durable neoprene fabric used for this cushion, it won’t tear or puncture either, even when using outdoors!
Check out my video review on this handy knee cushion below:
Available in blue or red!

I’ve been eating and loving my Chia Seeds regularly for the last few years, ever since I Heard Dr. Oz talk about what a good superfood they are. Being vegetarian, and upon hearing how they’re packed with protein, has had me adding these yummy seeds to my salads, cereal, and oatmeal almost daily!
Today, March 23rd, we celebrate National Chia Seeds Day! Here are just a few fun facts on these yummy, nutritious seeds that might have you eating them daily in the near future too!
DID YOU KNOW?
Chia seeds are a complete protein, a rich plant-based source of Omega-3s providing fiber, antioxidants, minerals and more. Mamma Chia’s top-four favorite benefits of chia seeds include:
- Rich Nutritional Value: Gram per gram, chia has 8x more Omega-3s than salmon, 25 percent more fiber than flaxseed, 30 percent more antioxidants than blueberries, 2x more potassium than bananas, 70 percent more protein than soy beans, and 2x more calcium than milk.
- Satiety: Chia is a complete protein, which can help you feel more satisfied after a meal.
- Digestion: Chia seeds have both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can aid in digestion.
- Plant Protein: Chia has more than 4g of vegetarian protein per one ounce, and unlike flaxseed, chia does not have to be ground to reap its benefits.
