FRISKA delivers next-level digestive enzymes perform vital functions, like breaking down food, eliminating toxins, and even building muscle to amplify healthy habits
NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 24, 2020
FRISKA is a new digestive health brand of dietary supplements focused on improving gut health, a key component to overall health and well-being. Based on the insight that 70-80% of your body’s immune cells reside in the gut, FRISKA’s proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and a clinically-proven probiotic anchor each of the unique formulations. What makes a healthy gut? There’s a lot of pieces to the digestive puzzle – from saliva all the way down to the microbiome. Digestive enzymes are the little-known workhorse that holds everything together. Think of them as your microbiome’s BFF. These enzymes make it possible for our bodies to absorb nutrients, release energy and produce vitamins. Without the right digestive enzyme balance, our bodies can experience gas, bloating and indigestion. While the benefits of probiotics are widely known, the power of enzymes is often overlooked. FRISKA’S proprietary enzyme blend includes potent probiotics, a first within the digestive health category, to help ensure the right enzyme levels for optimum gut health. A healthy gut contains good bacteria and immune cells that ward off infectious agents like bad bacteria, viruses and fungi. A healthy gut also communicates with the brain through nerves and hormones, which helps maintain general good health and well-being.
“FRISKA was inspired by my personal desire to help others improve their health and feel better,” said FRISKA founder John …

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Submitted to OnFocus – United for Community Wellness was created to address the impact prolonged and increased stress is having on mental health and overall wellness in our community.
Lisa Miller, therapist at Children’s Wisconsin, had increased concerns related to how the pandemic was impacting mental health issues. There was a need for something to be done, but it was hard to determine how to support the community.
It wasn’t hard gathering a group of people passionate to take on this challenge. Ashley Winch and Krystal Bowman of Marshfield Area United Way, Stacey Schultz, of the Marshfield Area Community Foundation, Joanne Greenlee, school social worker and mental health coordinator for the School District of Marshfield, and Jodi Chojnacki, a mental health therapist and passionate advocate for mental health issues joined Lisa to form United for Community Wellness. The group identified ways to support, educate and empower the community.
Each week a different topic is highlighted such as physical activity, connectedness, kindness, creative outlets of music and art, gratitude, and deep breathing. Businesses, schools, churches and organizations receive an email which includes an article, infographic, video and a positive challenge or way to utilize the information. People are encouraged to share this information with their employees or members. The goal: unite our community by offering tools to cope with stressors and stay positive during this challenging time.

The wellness retreat Schloss Elmau with its storybook setting in the midst of the Bavarian Alps would be a soothing, restorative enough destination on its own. But this year, according to owner Dietmar Mueller-Elmau, they have seen an unusually high number of requests for wellness programs and activities to help cleanse 2020 from their systems. As a result, they have increased their number of yoga, sports and Taiji (Tai Chi) retreats for late this year and early 2021 while continuing their practice of offering musical performances by international artists. “The experience of untouched nature, great music and literature has always been and will continue to be the most effective way to banish bad vibes!” he says.

The request to banish those vibes is a request that other resorts and retreats have been receiving as well as the desire to recharge for a new year takes on an extra urgency due to the unparalleled COVID-19, political and economic stresses of 2020. And many are putting programs into practice to try and drain away that negative energy and get their guests ready for what all hope will be a better year next year.

Licata Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Batavia donates $1,000 to

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

On Thursday, Nov. 19, money raised locally from selling homemade face masks along with donations and some matching funds were presented to Jeff Allen, executive director of Crossroads House.
Donations totaling $716 from patients at Licata Chiropractic and Wellness Center and their families and friends, plus some matching funds from chiropractor Sandra A. Licata were given to the nonprofit hospice house in Batavia — $1,000 all together.
The fundraising effort began after Licata purchased the property at 542 E. Main St. in Batavia and she and business partner Michael Grasso LMT moved there in February.
The chiropractor and licensed massage therapist have been in practice for 22 years, working together since 2001.
The new location’s private parking and a bright new cheery office helped seal the deal.
They made the move in March, then COVID-19 struck.
The Wellness Center staff fixed up the “542” and worked seeing patients on an emergency basis through the end of spring. Unfortunately, massage therapy was closed for three months.
At the same time, Benay Chamberlain was trying to find a way to help others. She was among the vulnerable population and feeling helpless. Her daughter sent a pattern of masks and a video to Anna Fenton, who printed it and showed Chamberlain, who took it from there.  
Material, thread and elastic were hard to come by at first. Through connections and donations the two women came up with enough to make some masks. Initially, Chamberlain made 37 masks and said “that’s enough.” But now they’re at 245 and counting!
They decided to …

Counseling hotline created to help SC farm families deal with stress and depression

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:




People depend on farmers for food and clothing. But low prices, floods and drought that destroy crops and other pressures have left the American farmer living with stress and depression. Industry leaders in South Carolina are now trying to help.The S.C. Farm Bureau has launched the SC AgriWellness program to provide free mental health services to farmers and their families.


The idea came from a fifth-generation farmer in Chester. Produce farmer J.E.B. Wilson said he was inspired to complete a project focused on mental health because so many farmers are lost to suicide. “And a big part of that reason is we’re subject to market swings and what we get paid,” Wilson said. “Some years, you can do pretty well farming, and some years when the commodity prices really take a dive, it’s very stressful. You just can’t make any money doing it.”One big pressure is some farms have been in families for generations.“So, if grandma and granddaddy didn’t lose the farm, it’s really stressful when you think, ‘Oh my goodness. I’m going to lose the farm,’” Wilson said. “So there’s just a lot of pressure on you from generation to generation to keep doing what you know the folks who came before you were able to keep doing.”


Wilson said many South Carolina farmers live in rural parts of the state and may not have good access to mental health care. He talked with folks at …

Sandoval: Second term on Peoria Unified school board is another opportunity to serve

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

By David Sandoval

When I sat down with my family to discuss my intention to run for the governing board in 2016 and then run for re-election in 2020, I continued to reflect on the influence that public education has had on me, my wife and our children.
There is never a day that goes by that I am not grateful for the impact that a caring coach, teacher, or staff member continues to have on my life.
I wake up every day with the mindset to serve others and a second term on the Peoria Unified School District governing board is yet another opportunity for me to do so.
I have never wavered from my commitment to listen and be present in order to make informed, relevant and objective decisions. I feel that by leading with others in mind, being authentic and staying true to my just cause to influence safe, supportive and inspiring learning and teaching environments, I have been able to build confident and trusting relationships with the Peoria community. I will continue to stay true to who I am and be a voice for all the stakeholders PUSD serves.
The upcoming calendar year will bring a pandemic and its aftermath, a committee focused on facilities utilization and discussions on a 2021 bond measure, all while operating the fourth largest school district in Arizona.
The Peoria Unified School District has remained steadfast in prioritizing the health and wellness of all who it serves. In addition to the recommended safety protocols, …

Acts of love and kindness

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:




Last week I challenged you to be more loving, kinder, gentler, more giving, more attentive, more willing to serve and provide, more committed to being a real partner to the most important people in your life.  So, I decided this week to provide you with a few ideas that might stimulate your thinking and ignite you to try some new or different ways that will help you to keep your promise by performing an additional act of love every day for a month. 1.) Make a cup of tea or coffee for your partner without having to be asked . . . or when asked say, “sure.” This could be in the morning while he or she is still in bed.2.) Take total responsibility for cleaning up after dinner. This includes everything – the counters, rinsing out the sink, putting leftovers away, taking out the garbage, starting the dishwasher, etc.

3.) Suggest an activity that your spouse is more interested in than you are— craft fair or a baseball game— but you are willing to go in a good spirit just because you want to spend time with him or her. 4.) Send flowers, leave a kind a note under the windshield, or acknowledge your spouse for something he or she does for you each day especially if it is something you take for granted, like who makes the bed every day, picks up the mail, or drives the kids to the bus.5.) Hold hands more often and hold them with feeling like you did when …
