Inflammation Blast

It’s a bummer getting old. Even being as active as I am, parts of my body creak that aren’t supposed to make noise. Whether it’s the onset of arthritis or I picked something up wrong, it always seems to be the same problem: inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s attempt at self-protection. It’s an immune response to something that is harmful or irritating to a specific area and marks an effort to heal itself. Want to make a Blast that douses the flames […]

About twice a week, I enjoy skipping off to one of those gourmet coffee shops and having the barista whip me up a nice, ice blended mocha.
