Trending: A Healthier Lifestyle

Juicing became a trend not more than a few years ago, and today, it is still going strong. Rather than it being a trend, however, this has turned into something more along the lines of a healthy lifestyle. People want to eat well, but busy day-to-day activity typically yields bad food choices. It’s difficult to eat a healthy, organic meal while you’re on the run all the time, so a juice that packs all of the most healthful punch into one convenient drink gives people just that; convenience. In addition to this juice trend, “going green” is an ongoing epidemic as well.

Not only are people becoming more conscientious of the environment, but they are also practicing the same thing in regard to their bodies! The best way to fuel and invigorate yourself is through organic food choices. Organic food is often fresher than products that are infused with preservatives to elongate shelf life, which means that you’re consuming the product at its freshest point. In addition to the benefits that organic food gives its consumers, it is also better for the environment. So, organic food is a win-win for everybody; a healthier you, and a cleaner environment.

Here are some facts about the current organic food industry:

• 78% of U.S. families purchase at least some organic foods (Organic Trade Association, 2011 U.S. Families’ Organic Attitudes and Beliefs Study)

• Less than 1% of U.S. farmland is certified organic (USDA Economic Research Service)

• Organic Food is 25% more nutritious in terms of vitamins and minerals (

• Organic wheat, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, onions and lettuce have between 20% & 40% more nutrients than non organic foods (

Hello, Ellie’s – Goodbye, Migraines

Migraines. If you’ve never have had one count yourself lucky, and if you have you know the pain that they can cause and how they can turn your day upside down. Well, maybe not upside down because you will probably be spending the whole day as a vampire, under the covers, shades drawn in utter silence hoping that the pain lodged in your skull will eventually subside.

Everyone who suffers from these spells wishes someone could just prevent what causes them, however there are many causes for migraines. Sometimes your doctor will give you medication, maybe it was lack of water, genetics or perhaps it’s brought on by stress because, let’s face it, in today’s world stress is everywhere. It’s found at work, at home and in the daily grind of everyday life. Sometimes even taking a vacation can be stressful. Whatever the reason, people want relief from the pain, and if you’re like us, we’re not always willing to put chemicals into our body.

Before modern medicine people were treating ailments through more natural means, and it seems like people are now starting to look for those alternative remedies once again. Everything has a way of coming back full circle, right? In bustling Portsmouth, NH there is such a place, where a person can find natural alternatives to certain health problems and advice from knowledgeable people.

Welcome to Ellie’s Port O2, where a person cannot only find relaxation but relief from ailments. According to long time client, Jackie R., “Oxygen really helps with my chronic migraines. I buy the small canisters just in case I cannot find the time to get to Ellie’s.”

The oxygen bar provides many things besides relief from migraines. It can give a person a burst of energy and long-term use can clean out toxins and boost your immune system. It’s a great way to keep your body healthy, even if you do not suffer from migraines.

Other clients of Ellie’s have managed their migraines through different treatments, besides the oxygen bar. Joe R. has been going to Ellie’s for almost two years. He suffers from a serious head injury that causes migraines. He found relief in the Infrared Treatment along with a change in diet.

People try different treatments to find what works for their body. Some people chose to stay with one treatment option while others use multiple. These are just two people that have found relief through Ellie’s. There are many people who are willing to share their stories with you, and any of the staff here would love to talk about the benefits of their treatments. So if you suffer with migraines stop on it see what natural healing can do for you. We’re here to help you get to a better, pain-free lifestyle.
