Exer More Then Urgent Care by Beau Dunn

Last night, I was attempting to cook for the first time in years. I have been watching Top Chef, and absolutely inspired to hobble around the kitchen on crutches and create a three course meal. I ordered a veggie slicer, and started working away. Of course 2 minutes into slicing, I slice the tip of my pinky off. My mom was to the rescue, wrapping my pinky up and and applying pressure. The bleeding continued through the morning, and decided I had to go to the emergency room. Of course I don't want to sit at Cedars for the next 8 hours - thats why I went straight to my favorite health care emergency room - EXER MORE THAN URGENT CARE. I signed in, went straight into a room, and within 20 minutes, my finger was numb, clean, and being bandaged after applying a little glue. I am the BiGGEST fan of EXER because they take insurance, its clean, fast, and luxurious! Thank you EXER for saving my ass! 

Energy Bites by Beau Dunn

As most of you know, I am by no means a cook. I can barely get myself around my own kitchen without almost setting the house on fire. After I hurt my knee - I have spent more time inside since April, then I ever have in my entire life. Not being able to stand without crutches has still diminished my dreams of being Chef Gordon Ramsey, but with some help, I have been experiencing with vegetarian snacks recently. I came across a recipe for Energy Bites, and put my own twist on it. These energy bites can be passed off on any amazing dessert bar, and they would have fooled me. 

Ingredients: 

  • ⅔ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup ground flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Mix ingredients in a medium bowl - stir to combine

Refrigerate for 15-45 minutes

After refrigerated , roll into 12 bites and place them into the fridge for up to a week

If after a week passes, throw the bites into the freezer

They are the perfect mixture of cookie dough and a granola bar - and when craving sugar, they are a great little snack alternative.

Cryotherapy, Los Angeles, California by Beau Dunn

I was introduced to Cryhealthcare last year, as I have two herniated discs in my back, and a friend suggested I go freeze my ass off (literally) to feel better. Meet CryHealthcare! Cryotherapy is the local or general use of low temperatures in medical therapy. The term "cryotherapy" comes from the Greek cryo (κρυο) meaning cold, and therapy (θεραπεια) meaning cure. Cryotherapy has been used as early as the seventeenth century.

Whole Body Cryotherapy can be administered in one of two devices, the Single Person Cryosauna and the Multi-Person Cryochamber.

With Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures (-200 to -240 F). The client is placed in a cryogenic sauna/chamber for a short duration of 1.5-3 minutes which lowers the client's skin surface temperature significantly and stimulates receptors. 

This modality was first utilized in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Studies conducted over the last two decades in Europe have established WBC as a powerful modality for inflammation reduction and injuries.

Professional athletes have discovered WBC as a powerful treatment to decrease recovery  time and increase athletic performance.  Although Whole Bocy Cryotherapy originated in Japan, it was a group of Polish scientists who took the idea and made Whole Body Cryotherapy the physical therapy it is today.  The Olympic rehabilitation center in Spala, Poland opened in May 2000 and has been used as a training and injury rehabilitation center for many athletes. 

The Cryosauna and Cryochamber are cooled to cryogenic temperature range of −200 °F to −240 °F.

Located on Canon Drive, in the heart of Beverly Hills, sits a hidden gem called Thibiant. Thibiant is an old Hollywood secret, created and founded by famed technician and beauty guru Aida Thibiant, over 35 years ago. Thibiant Beverly Hills Skin clinic has a neighborhood feel, with first class treatments. This is a weekly hang for me, as I receive manual lymphatic drainage massages (its hard to find a spa that offers this!!) by the man himself... SERG!
