Important

Cranberries are very acidic. As a result, this will increase the acidity of the urine. If you have any urinary tract problems then you will want to consult a doctor, preferably a naturopathic doctor, before drinking cranberries juice.

If you have a sugar related illness or problem then do be careful. Cranberries are extremely high in natural fruit sugars. When you compare the sugar (energy) content of cranberries to other fruits (except strawberries which are also high in fruit sugar) then you will see a really big and dramatic difference.


General

I must admit, I don't drink cranberry juice. It's not that cranberries are necessarily bad, but because it is hard to find organic cranberries. In addition, the tart taste of cranberries isn't exactly my favorite.

I also prefer not to juice cranberries because cranberries are generally grown next to bogs. In order to harvest the cranberries, the bog is drained and the cranberry field is flooded. This constant draining of the bogs is dramatically affecting many bogs in the world. Bogs are a major oxygen producer which have taken literally thousands of years to make. I therefore, cannot in good conscious, support cranberry growers.

Needless to say, bogs are a little off the topic. But, bogs are important to both wildlife and us humans.

I provide this information about cranberries because although I do not drink cranberry juice for personal reasons, the choice is ultimately yours.

Hatha Yoga

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.

Unlike flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.

Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.

If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.

Follow me on Facebook and watch my videos on YouTube.
