Juiceateria: A One of a Kind Juice Bar

Juiceateria: A One of a Kind Juice Bar
Written By: Kirsten Filkill

Juiceateria is the newest Juice Bar and Café in Boca Raton! It’s unique, one of a kind atmosphere was created and organized to meet the desires of health conscientious people who want a truly all-natural, dedicated food based juice bar. They offer a variety of recipes free of preservatives, sweeteners, and artificial ingredients that are found in other foods. Today, an individual with an average diet holds 8-10lbs of undigested food and waste in their digestive tract, which then turns into toxins and fat. A person with a healthy diet holds no more than 3lbs of excess food. The current state of the nation’s health is poor leading to obesity at a younger age. The life expectancy has decreased immensely in the last century, due to diseases that were once unknown. These diseases, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease can all be avoided with the practice of a better diet.

Juiceateria offers a multi-day cleanse which allows you to consume about a total of 15lbs of fruits and vegetables that allows your body to detox, reset your system and enrich your skin. Today, food may be more convenient, but the amount of toxins we consume has increased greatly. Juice cleanses allow some of our organs to rest since the juices are easily digested, enabling the toxins to filter through the organs. Juice cleanses have proven themselves as the most effective and the quickest way to detox and improve your immune system.

Anyone who has suffered from spinal disc problems can relate to the debilitating pain that Matt White compares to “an electric shock.” But the lawyer, weight lifter and martial arts student would rather they benefit from his experiences. With the assistance of a chiropractor, anesthesiologist and nutraceutical company, White used himself as the ultimate guinea pig and developed a supplement that aims to provide new hope for people looking to avoid surgery and maintain an active lifestyle.

Spine Revitalizer®, a daily supplement that hit the market last month, contains ingredients that, in individual reviews, have demonstrated the potential to promote the health and recovery of herniated or bulging discs and discs weakened due to age, use or instability.

White, who lives in Louisville, Ky., with his wife and three children, began experiencing the intermittent pain and numbness associated with disc deterioration about 10 years ago. First, there was a numb, unusual sensation in his left foot while running. Then the pain extended from his lower back down his leg. Eventually, it became uncomfortable to sit.

“It was sciatica, although I didn’t know it at the time,” White says.

In 2008, he was forced to face the issue head-on, when he suffered a severely herniated, or ruptured, disc that caused temporary paralysis in his leg.

“The doctors basically told me that I needed surgery,” he says.

But White, who was 33 and had three young daughters, had seen the fallout of failed back surgeries – representing countless clients as a personal injury attorney and watching his own father struggle to walk, despite four spine surgeries.

“The surgeon said I probably would never lift weights again. I could swim, but no running, no mountain biking. And I live for that stuff,” White says.

Even successful surgeries run the risk of scar tissue development and can affect the stability of the spine, says White’s friend, Dr. Martin Eason indipill.com. Conversely, nine out of 10 people with herniated discs find pain relief through conservative treatments, including medications and physical therapy, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Although a conservative approach could put him at risk for permanent nerve damage, due to the severity of the herniation, White decided to try rehabilitation and enlisted the help of Eason – an anesthesiologist who specializes in pain management – to generate a list of vitamins, nutrients and dosages with the potential to reduce pain and inflammation and aid in disc repair.

“We looked at the literature to see what has been shown to be effective from a homeopathic approach, but we looked in peer-reviewed journals,”  Eason says.

While there were plenty of glucosamine- and chrondrointin-focused blends on the market targeted to osteoarthritis and bone density, White couldn’t find a supplement that contained everything he needed, so he made his own – fine-tuning the proportions with a nutraceutical firm.

“I would try something for a while and see if it made me feel better,” White says. “Two months later, I was back in the gym with a trainer, lifting weights.”

According to Eason and White, the formula, named neochondromine, contains substrates that support the components of disc creation, like collagen; antioxidants that support healing; and ingredients like glucosamine, chondroitin and devil’s claw that can reduce pain and inflammation and help repair cartilage.

David Kern, of Louisville, was introduced to White and the supplement a year ago through mutual friends. Like White, he led an active lifestyle and “wasn’t ready to go under the knife” when disc problems began limiting his performance and enjoyment of tennis and running.

Acupuncture, massage and chiropractic adjustments failed to sufficiently relieve the soreness, weakness and tightness, Kern says, but the supplement brought his pain level down within about two weeks and made a significant difference after about a month.

Kern admits he was initially wary of a possible placebo effect, and suspicious of popping a pill – or, four tablets a day – to cure what ailed him, but says he can’t dispute the positive results – including the ability to comfortably jog or deliver a devastating tennis serve.

“I was sleeping on my floor periodically, it was so bad, and now I really haven’t felt any pain for the last several months,” he says.

White points out that Spine Revitalizer® is not a miracle drug – it’s just one component of a maintenance plan that, for him, includes daily stretching and exercise, steering clear of inflammatory foods like processed sugar and white flour, and smart prevention tactics.

“When I walk into a room, I’ll think about the seating and know that I shouldn’t sit on a particular couch because I’m going to have a hard time getting up,” White says.

For Kern, the freedom from pain has allowed him to improve his core strength and stability, which can help limit future problems, according to experts including the Mayo Clinic.

“This has gotten me to a point where I can help myself,” Kern says. “Before, I was a little afraid of activity.”

While the supplement was developed for disc-related recovery, Eason says it has the potential to help with any cartilage-related problem. His daughter and brother use it to relieve knee pain, and White and Eason are working with veterinarians to investigate its safety and efficacy for reducing arthritis pain in dogs.

The Big Picture—Diet and Exercise Are Still the Best Way to Improve Your Overall Health

It should come as no surprise that the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise routine are nearly endless. Most of us know that diet and exercise can help us lose weight, strengthen muscles, and increase energy levels—but the most important benefit of physical activity and proper nutrition lies in the positive effect it has on our health.

While several studies have shown that diet and exercise can help prevent health conditions like heart disease and type II diabetes, there may also be some indirect effects on other conditions and diseases.

According to Dr. Ben Thrower, a Multiple Sclerosis neurologist who serves as the Senior Medical Advisor for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSFocus.org), the best approach to improving your health is to think of the big picture—especially when it comes to diseases like MS, of which much remains a mystery.

“While we certainly don’t have all the answers we need, we do know that most people don’t die from their MS. They die from heart disease, cancer and strokes. So, doing things that are healthy will have benefits even if we cannot show that they directly affect MS. Thinking of the big picture, one can argue that a healthy diet that is rich in anti-oxidant foods with plenty of fruits and vegetables if good for overall health,” Dr. Thrower said.

Fitting exercise into our daily lives is a big enough challenge for most of us, but it can be even more of an obstacle for people who have certain health conditions and diseases. Still, many studies suggest that even moderate exercise can improve multiple aspects of our physical and mental health.

“Exercise for people with MS improves energy levels and leads to less deconditioning,” said Dr. Thrower, “Many people with MS may experience a temporary increase in symptoms when their core body temperature goes up, such as with exercise. It’s important to know that this is not causing any permanent harm. Exercise has many health benefits and benefits specifically for people with MS. Heat-sensitive individuals may need to look at exercise strategies that minimize the effects of heat.  A few options include indoor exercise, swimming in cool water and cooling vests.”

Finding an exercise routine that works best for you, even if it is not overly strenuous, is a great way for everyone to become more active and improve their health.

Many experts also suggest checking vitamin levels regularly, as vitamin deficiencies can lead to future health problems. According to Dr. Fuller, several small studies have shown that correcting low Vitamin D levels may slow the progression of MS.

Still, he warns that not all natural remedies are safe, especially when combined with prescription drugs.

“It is absolutely vital that people advise their healthcare providers of all vitamins and supplements they are taking so that potentially harmful interactions can be avoided.”

Drink Your Greens and Naturally Replace Electrolytes by Dr. Donald L. Hayes, D.C.

As a Bikram yoga practitioner, you’re already aware of the many benefits of hot yoga: cardiovascular health, assistance with weight loss, mental focus, strength and conditioning, the list goes on and on! And, let’s not forget that since Bikram yoga is performed in a room with temperature of 105ºF., the profuse sweating helps to detoxify your body, which releases toxins and expels impurities out of your body through your skin.

What you may not know is that during intense sweating, you can also lose a lot of electrolytes and other vital nutrients. It becomes, absolutely imperative that you rehydrate your body and replace those electrolytes to avoid severe dehydration, reduce muscle soreness, aid in recovery time and build lean muscle mass. Most products that claim to rehydrate your body after intense exercise are nothing but sugary “fortified water” and energy drinks. It can be very confusing and nearly impossible to decide what’s best for your body. Most of these types of beverages are loaded with hidden calories, sugars, and artificial flavors and preservatives. Some contain harmful stimulants and are actually dangerous. And while these kinds of drinks may claim to replace electrolytes, they more often do much more harm than good by causing acidosis, a condition where your body becomes heavily acidic from sugar and acid forming foods.

Added Benefits of Bikram Balance

Most have heard that diets high in fruits and vegetables can help lose weight, reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, cataracts, macular degeneration, osteoporosis, arthritis and even wrinkles. As a matter of fact, according to the National Cancer Institute, 8 to 10 servings a day can cut the risk of some cancers in half!  However, with the U.S. government releasing its new dietary recommendations urging us to eat up to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables each and every day, it’s certain many of us are falling short of that goal. Fortunately people today can get the power of “superfood” drink mixes that have the antioxidant protection of 10-15 servings of fruits and vegetables to help fill in their nutritional gaps. Food science has just recently come to realize that there is much more to nutrition than just vitamins and minerals. Indeed, there may be well over 1,000 different plant chemicals, known as Phytochemicals, available in fruits and vegetables that may have a positive metabolic effect! Further study has shown that the fruits and vegetables that come in rich vibrant colors, like tomatoes, carrots, spinach, broccoli, blueberries and raspberries, are much more potent and beneficial than the pastel colored produce like iceberg lettuce, bananas, celery, corn and potatoes. Furthermore, certain foods may contain greater quantities of antioxidants, fibers, probiotics, and even specific medicinal substances, the latter being especially true of many edible herbs and spices.

Quality Manufacturing Is Most Important   

Quality manufacturers of green food drink mixes take care to preserve the nutrients naturally found in the fruits and vegetables during the various manufacturing processes. Patients should recognize and respect the fact these are natural, certified, organic, whole foods and they are best consumed as close to their natural environmental state as possible with as minimal handling as possible. Always seek to use products that don’t use genetically modified foods or are altered using nanotechnology.  There are many manufacturing challenges that must be addressed. Heating, for example, is a major concern in manufacturing a green food product and for maintaining its bioavailability. The manufacturing challenge is to be able to dehydrate the whole foods to stabilize the product, but not over-dehydrate it which could “cook” the product.  Because of this potential problem, powder drink mixes remain the most widely recommended form of green food supplement by most health care providers. Even with the many challenges of creating high quality green foods, the popularity of these ‘super foods’ continues to increase as patients experience the number of advantages they supply. The biggest reason the green food drink mix market continues to expand is the fact that when you drink one, you actually feel the difference.


The “eat more fruit and vegetable” programs sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture, has made some progress, but changing the eating habits of a nation comes very slowly. Today many consumers are finding the benefits of using functional foods such as whole food drink mixes that can be included in the dietary fabric of the busy, modern world. People will only eat what they like, so consuming on a daily basis a good tasting, instant, and healthy super foods drink can help bridge the gap between a poor and an optimal diet.

Thankfully, the Bikram yoga community and many consumers in general have discovered and embraced an alkalizing superfood vitality drink that is made with organic ingredients and can help you replace electrolytes and stay hydrated naturally. In fact read what one Bikram certified teacher since 2005 and one who has been practicing Bikram yoga since 1992 had to say about the Bikram Balance fruit and vegetable vitality drink: “I was looking for a nice supplement to my water as the Emergency product I used to use just tastes too much like aspartic acid and I no longer enjoy the flavor.  Bikram Balance not only has incredibly healthy and natural ingredients, it makes me feel good.  The minty green goodness is very refreshing during class.  I am a very particular person that has been practicing living a very natural and holistic lifestyle for many years now.  I love your Bikram Balance product and can’t wait to use it during our HOT, HOT, HOT, Key West summers as I know it will revitalize and rejuvenate me during class and all day long. Thank you so much for making this.  It is funny, coming across your product as I did makes me further believe, Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Thank you for making this product available to me.”

In closing, Bikram Balance is a nutrient dense yoga wellness shake that is essential for every Bikram yoga student and teacher, and non-yoga practitioners as well. Try one before, during, or after your hot yoga class, or first thing in the morning if you don’t practice yoga, to reinvigorate your body and replace or maintain vital nutrients. It’s an easily digestible powder, so it won’t cause cramping, and it will provide you with 15+ servings of fruits and vegetables in every scoop!

Bikram Balance®: The First Fruit and Vegetable Vitality Drink with the Bikram Name

Bikram-Choudhury, the most respected name in yoga, is the founder of hot yoga, which takes place in 105 degree Fahrenheit temperatures, helping to flush away waste products and toxins through the circulatory and respiratory system.
Bikram Balance®, which provides 15-servings of fruit and vegetables in one serving in an eight-ounce glass of water, was designed to provide energy and facilitate recovery for the hundreds of thousands of dedicated yoga and hot yoga followers and enthusiasts nationwide.
Bikram Balance® is easily mixed with cold water or any other hydrating beverage, and each serving replaces electrolytes and alkaline minerals lost during a typical yoga session or an arduous work day. Bikram Balance is made from 49 different fruits and vegetables, and is the most alkaline, oxygen-rich electrolyte replacement supplement currently available on the market, making it an absolute essential for
Bikram enthusiasts due to the amount of electrolytes and alkaline minerals that are lost during a typical session. Low levels of electrolytes can cause a much slower post-yoga recovery, and may trigger an acid/alkaline imbalance. The balance of electrolytes in the body is critical for optimum function of our cells, tissues, and organs. Although it’s great for yoga enthusiasts and followers,
ikram Balance® is also great for anyone who wants to jump start their day, helping you maintain maximum health and vitality. This product promotes regeneration, improves performance and enhances muscle development. In addition, it is also used by the recreational athletes and busy individuals burning on all cylinders to help sustain and boost energy, burn fat, and more. Bikram Balance® is a gluten free, vegan drink that comes in two great tasting flavors: Original and Berry.

Celsius® Burns Up to 100 Calories or More Per Serving

Celsius® burns up to 100 calories or more per serving


4th clinical study proves Celsius® burns up to 100 calories or more per serving, but it also burns fat, boosts metabolism, builds muscle and gives cardio benefit.

Most drinks only say what they do for you, but the calorie burning Celsius® continues to back their brand with science. The scientifically-formulated, calorie burning beverage not only burns up to 100 or more calories per can, but enhances the benefits of moderate exercise, according to the latest clinical study, the company announced today.

The Metabolic and Body Composition Laboratory of the Department of Health and Exercise Science at the University of Oklahoma recently announced the results of the 4th scientific study of Celsius® that showed that consumption of Celsius® as a pre-workout beverage resulted in dramatic improvements in the benefits of exercise among a test group of previously sedentary individuals. The first phase of the study showed that drinking a single 12 oz. can of Celsius per day for 10 weeks dramatically improves the benefits of light to moderate exercise. The test subjects consuming Celsius® lost significantly more fat mass and gained more muscle mass than subjects drinking placebo, and significantly improved their cardiovascular endurance during exercise.

“This study suggests the Celsius provides a significant, additive adaption to the benefits of regular exercise,” states Jeffrey R. Stout, Ph.D., who served as the Chief Researcher on the study.” He adds, “Now it can be scientifically supported that, by consuming a pre-workout calorie burning beverage, a person can improve their response to exercise; however, these claims are unique to Celisus®”.

Naturally refreshing Celsius® contains no sugar, no carbs, no preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, no aspartame and very low sodium. Celsius® is available in five great tasting flavors: Cola, Orange, Wild Berry, Lemon-Lime and Ginger Ale.

Celsius® drinks are powered by Metaboost™, a proprietary blend of ingredients including Green Tea with EGCG, Ginger, Caffeine, Calcium, Chromium, B Vitamins and Vitamin C. Scientifically shown to raise metabolism over a three-hour period, consuming Celsius® results in a sustained calorie burn while keeping you energized.
