#Health benefits of near infrared sauna therapy: a powerful and unique way to influence mitochondria for antiaging, #wellness and longevity! #sauna #infared #healthy #light #nearinfrared www.jenniferweinbergmd.comOne of my favorite wellness trends is the rising use of infrared saunas! Infrared saunas are growing in popularity. Based on their function combining the heat therapy of traditional saunas with low-level light therapy and resulting benefits, I use and recommend near infrared saunas.

The science behind the healing benefits of near infrared saunas is strong. Near infrared sauna light has been shown to deeply penetrate tissues up to a depth of 9 inches (23 cm), activating tiny photoreceptors in our cells called chromophores which are selectively receptive to and absorb these near infrared rays. In fact, the mitochondrias’ photo-receptors (cytochrome oxidase) are only stimulated by 600-950nm light (visible red is 600-700nm, near infrared is 700-1100nm). Once activated by NIR light, chromophores influence a variety of metabolic pathways that influence healing, inflammation, detoxification and rejuvenation. This directed, deep light also provides sufficient heat for effective hyperthermic therapy

It is not surprising that infrared saunas are quickly becoming the trendiest way to detox and reap other health benefits, since they simply feel great to experience and are a powerful way to de-stress.  

You will likely see them popping up in wellness center, fitness studios and spas near you soon or you can buy a high-quality yet affordable home sauna cabana option like this one for convenient home use without the need for a lot of space or dedicated electrical system.

Simple #Lifestyle #health #healthy #healthyliving #wellness #trend #healthtrend #wellnesstrend #stress #relax #relaxation #cozy #hygge #mushroom #mushrooms #sauna #nearinfraredsauna #infraredsaunaOne of the most delicious and nutritious wellness trends is the growing popularity of medicinal mushrooms!

Mushrooms are a versatile and delicious source of flavor and nutrition and are being celebrated for their healing powers as well. While healing traditions throughout the world have long lauded the healing properties of mushrooms, growing research has renewed excitement about mushrooms as a superfood. You will start to see these fungi popping up in more and more health food products from chocolate bars to teas to elixirs to protein powders.

Different types of mushrooms show promise to help balance immunity, quell inflammation, balance blood sugar and even fight cancer. Many varieties are potent adaptogens which help the body to adapt to the various stressors of life.

Extracts from various types of mushrooms contain polysaccharides and beta-glucans which help support the immune system. They are also a vegan source of naturally-occurring vitamin D, an important vitamin for supporting immune and overall health.

The flavor of mushroom powders is generally earthy and mild, allowing them to blend well into smoothies, juices or my 2-Minute Immune Balancing Hot Chocolate! You can also find mushroom extracts in capsules, extracts and whole food form. Make sure they are organic and harvested from a trusted and sustainable source or consider growing your own!

 

 

Embrace Simple Pleasures with the Art of Hygge

Hygge is one of the coziest wellness trends and one that helps support overall health and happiness!

You may have heard about this Scandinavian way of embracing the cozy side of winter recently and it is a trend that we can all enjoy! Pronounced “hoo-ga,” hygge is a way of being which originally comes from a Norwegian word meaning “well-being” and was later embraced by the Danish.

 Exploring the simple joys in life is one of the key pillars of the Simple Pure Whole Wellness Method so hygge is definitely a concept I can get behind! We utilize this type of approach to meaningful presence in my The Whole Cure Lifestyle Transformation Program as well.

You can embrace the cozy comfort of hygge by appreciating more of the simple pleasures in life:

Embracing these simple pleasures with mindfulness and presence can really pay off for your mental and emotional health. Approaching these experiences with pintention and gratitude allows you to stay grounded and experience true joy in small moments.

Which of these wellness trends are you ready to embrace? How to you create hygge?

    3 good trends – pinned and shared

  • Marla

    HI Dr. Jennifer,
    I used to have a sauna but it was a wood one. I used it for quite a while but evidently had to sell it due to numerous reasons. The one you wrote about sounds like it would be so much more convenient and portable. I know they have improved much about them and they sure are great for detoxing among many other health issues. I have also been hearing so much about the medicinal mushrooms and appreciate you sharing that information. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & tweeted!

    • Dr. Jennifer L. Weinberg, MD, MPH, MBE

      Thank you for hosting, sharing and stopping by Marla! I really appreciate how convenient this home sauna is and that it is made without glues or other toxic parts, which is really important to me. I always look forward to your thoughtful comments!
