Taking Control of Health and Wellness in 2021

YourUpdateTV

After a long 2020, we’re all looking forward to a fresh start. While every New Year brings new goals and wishes, 2021 might look a little different. Recently, Wellness and Lifestyle Contributor, Terra Wellington, teamed with YourUpdateTV on a satellite media tour to share her tips to starting the year right. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/xKL_rNQYbYM Support Your Immune System One of the top goals people are carrying into the New Year is how to naturally support their immune system every day. For vitamins and supplements, you can look to Natrol. The company has a new Immune Health product line you can check out — there are three new products: Immune-Biotic, which is a delicious, orange-flavored probiotic that comes in quick-dissolve packets that you pour directly onto your tongue Elderberry Gummies — these are great-tasting gummies packed with a blend of elderberry fruit extract, Vitamin C, and Zinc, and Easy-C tablets are high-potency Vitamin C tablets that can be easy on your stomach Be Fiscally Fit In 2021, many are looking to become ‘fiscally fit’ and that means looking for savings. This January, keep an eye out in your mail for the Blue Envelope of Savings from Valpak. Lucky households nationwide will be receiving a $200 no-strings-attached check in the envelopes, along with savings coupons — all to help you stay on budget while also supporting local businesses. And if you scan the QR code on the envelope, you’ll be able to stream the Disney Hits playlist through your choice of streaming services. Go Plant-Based Try to add more plant-based foods into your diet this year. Studies show that when you eat more plants it supports your health by lowering your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. For example, Coconut Bliss®, which is known for its plant-based ice cream treats, has a new Bliss Maker™ at-home ice cream machine to make your own organic plant-based ice cream. It’s really fun for families, has lots of tasty recipes, and uses its organic plant-based soft-serve ice cream mix. It’s also certified vegan and gluten-free with fair-trade ingredients. You can find the whole bundle at Blissmaker.co for just $119.85.

USDA Food Guideline Calls to “Make Every Bite Count”

Pocono Organics

The USDA’s 2020-2025 food guidelines highlight the need for Americans to eat more nutrient-dense foods to promote better health and fight the risk of chronic disease. Pocono Organics founder and president, Ashley Walsh, knows the power of using food as medicine from her personal health journey with gastroparesis which led her to starting one of the largest regenerative organic farms in North America. “I was diagnosed with gastroparesis in my late 20s,” said Walsh. “That means that my stomach is paralyzed and I can’t digest food properly. The doctors told me that they could help me by cutting out parts of my stomach, using feeding tubes, and putting me on a regimen of medications. Those weren’t options I was willing to accept. That started my journey with organic and more nutrient-dense foods. The powerful results of using food as medicine along with plant-based supplements were undeniable for me - instead of being sick five days a week, I was sick five days a month. I was also able to get off of all the medications I was taking for my health because of my stomach. “The problem was that I wasn’t able to get the nutrient-dense organic foods I needed. That’s when the vision for Pocono Organics came to life. I was thrilled to see the USDA theme because when you live with gastroparesis, every bite of food does count! And, when you consider that we rely on just four crops to provide 60% of our daily caloric intake, we have to explore and grow more nutrient-dense food options.” Pocono Organics, which opened to the public in June of 2020, spans more than 380 acres atop the iconic Pocono Mountains and grows regenerative organic produce for retailers, distributors, restaurants, and consumers. Regenerative organic agricultural practices make soil health the priority and include low-till methods and zero-use of chemicals and pesticides. Pocono Organics’ farming approach, in partnership with Rodale Institute, produces some of the cleanest and most nutrient-dense crops grown on earth – making them better for consumers – while also strengthening and healing the soil in which they are grown – which is better for our planet. “For more than 70 years, our partners at Rodale Institute have led the world in regenerative organic science and research that shows how healthy soil grows more nutrient-dense food,” Walsh continued. “Our vision, as a health and wellness organization, is to inspire people and heal the earth. The United Nations has reported that we have less than 50 farming cycles left before our soil is completely depleted of the nutrients needed to grow the food we need. So, we are not only facing issues of human health, but of soil health that will further impact humanity and the food we eat.” Pocono Organics is a Global Center for Research, Education, and Discovery, and is an agritourism destination. Visitors enjoy freshly picked ingredients and prepared meals from its café and are able to stock up with certified organic pantry items in the market. There are also regular in-person and virtual experiential series ranging from cooking masterclasses from executive chef and Food Network Chopped Champion, Lindsay McClain to wellness and food education programs for children. The Pocono Organics education team will also be offering virtual food label reading webinars to share tips on how to read package labels to know what you are really putting in your and your family’s bodies. Walsh and her team have recently launched one of the cleanest and one of the first regenerative organic grown, full-spectrum hemp extract product lines in the world. Pocono Organics’ CBD is the only line to carry the respected Rodale Institute logo on its products and packaging. Pocono Organics’ wellness products are CBD-abundant and harness the power of full-spectrum hemp extract to deliver a broader range of health-promoting cannabinoids. These wellness resources - available online and carried in retail outlets, spas, and numerous doctors’ offices across multiple states - are formulated in Pocono Organics' in-house lab to create artisanal, small-batch items including tinctures, creams, salve sticks, lip balms, and bath bombs. Pocono Organics Pocono Organics is a health and wellness organization with a mission to inspire people and heal the earth. The Global Center for Research, Education, and Discovery is one of the largest regenerative organic farms in North America. Located in Long Pond, Pennsylvania, Pocono Organics has more than 380 acres of farm land and, at full build out, will have 120,000 square feet of greenhouse. Pocono Organics has a strategic partnership with Rodale Institute, the global leaders in Regenerative Organic Agriculture practices and research and is one of their largest research satellite facilities. Awarded the 2019 Environmental Innovator of the Year by the Green Sports Alliance, sustainability is a hallmark of Pocono Organics. The farm draws power from a 3MW, 25-acre solar farm and reclaims rain water from 70,000 square feet of roofs for irrigation. Pocono Organics also serves the local community through its Clean Food, Dirty Hands school education program and veterans in transition through a Veteran Farmer Training Program. In addition, the property includes an organic farmer’s market and café, and with a 56-room adjoining hotel, is an agritourism destination, and host location for annual festivals.
