Insomnia: here are some useful tips in order to treat your sleeping problems
Insomnia (or not getting enough sleep) is a condition linked to an increasing in inflammation, stress, fat, blood pressure and the risk of the onset of all the chronic degenerative diseases.
Those who suffer from insomnia have a temperature above the norm before going to bed (in the morning is the opposite). Therefore they will tend to feel hot at night and to toss and turn in bed several times before they can find the right temperature.
Today, March 22nd is the International day dedicated to the Importance of Water. How muchi s water important for our bodies?
We are made of about 60% of water. On average, people drink much less water than they should, leading to unbalances in the body composition. That in the long term can lead to serious health issues. A constant lack of water leads to premature ageing, loss of muscle mass, inflammation and stress.
This month, which we are dedicating to women, our chef Ales offers a simple but sensational recipe of the month: Sensational Truffles.
A very simple desert inspired by raw cuisine. The ingredients of the Sensational Truffles can be adjusted according to your taste.
Did you know that culinary use of flowers dates back thousands of years to the Chinese, Greek and Romans? Many cultures use edible flowers in their traditional cooking — think of squash blossoms in Italian food and rose petals in Indian food.
Add flowers to your food, it can be a nice way to add colour, flavour and texture to different types of dishes. Edible flowers are all very different: spicy, herbaceous, floral, fragrant… the range is huge.
Flower petals are used in salads, teas, and as garnish for desserts. You can also roll them into handmade pasta, add to homemade ice cream, add to lemonades or cocktails.

7th – 13th September

I have professionally known the world of nutrition through the support of foodsupplements since 2010. I have no title that defines me as an expert in the field. I consider myself quite a good consumer and student of this world. I believe that when it comes to one’s health and well-being you enter a dimension in which you never stop learning.
I am delighted to reveal the results of Ti Sana 2016. Earlier this year we announced to the staff the business objectives and during the months we have noticed how the marketing plan developed in 2015 had been planned and implemented flawlessly. We have had a great year with a positive trend of 16% in terms of turnover and expected also in 2016 an extraordinary growth. Expectations were very optimistic, but certainly not so much as achieving a positive + 44% of sales in 2016 gives me a good impression of the future and demonstrated that the efforts are aiming in the right direction.
We are delighted to announce that Ti Sana will soon be launching their new userfriendly platform to enable guests to purchase gifts for any occasion.
There is no better gift that the gift of health – and you can now make this present to your friend or your beloved one. They can redeem the voucher against any service or product here at Ti Sana.

Talking about healthy food to young children is not easy, but Erica D’Angelo has been given the opportunity by a local school to teach 4 and 5 years old about fresh food…
Why teach nutrition education to young children? Because the benefits are too valuable not to. From students making healthier choices to improved academic performance, nutrition education can benefit the whole school, but starting from the very young ones helps them cement experiences in their memories. The aim is to reinforce important values about healthy lifestyle, in a simple way with fun and engaging material.
This Detox Healtheatarian Soup is served once a week on a program dinner at Ti Sana. Soup have great benefits in terms of easing digestion and making you feel lighter, while at the same time nourishes your body and satisfies your appetite. Our secret is simple! It’s uncanny how a simple soup like this can help you shed weight and feel better, but it does, and especially after the holidays many of us feel that they have overeaten. This soup is super low in calories and has lots of fiber, you can eat until you feel nice and full without worrying about overdoing it. Nobody ever got fat on healthy soup, trust us. To give it a hint of smoothness you can add some soy unsweetened cream.
I have always believed that in every working environment your staff needs to feel how much their contribution is essential for the company’s success. The success of any business is not only about squeezing costs and increasing income, there is something deeper than that, something that is almost imperceptible. Everything that moves people to do what they do is always linked to emotions. That’s very much the case with the work for our staff members who bring the Healtheatarian program to our valuable guests. One of the most important aspect? of our company is that “we make people happy”, where we is made of people, who have emotions themselves, but these emotions are asked to be kept aside more often than they should.
Our Ti Sana Team is always trying to provide you with some useful information, which is to help you become healthier, stronger and happier. This time we have something special for you, our sporty friends!

Health is a complete state of physical, psychological and social wellbeing. Today this condition is more and more difficult to maintain or to reach due to mainly a decreased food quality (lower quality, polluted and processed) and an increased stress level leading to a worsening of the lifestyle.

Ti Sana introduces a brand new and innovative treatment that will revolutionize the anti-age treatment world thanks to the important scientific research on active principles and technology processes.
Skin gets damaged with the flow of time. Wrinkles, lack of elasticity, lack of density and skin spots become clearly visibile. An evident skin challenge is the abnomal functioning of our cells which implies: irregular cellular activity, abnormal functioning and reproduction of alkaline epidermic cells, abnormal activity of melanoma cells and irregular pigmentation. And as a consequence – the lack of protection of the skin surface as well as lack of hydration.
We are proud and happy to announce that Mario Sella, who has been a part of our team from the very beginning in 2011, has now become the Vice General Manager of Ti Sana Detox Retreat & SPA.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you became a yoga teacher/instructor.
What is your background in yoga?
All great questions. Well I was a server at an Italian restaurant in Charleston, SC for a few years. This was back in 2007/2008. I felt disconnected from life because I wasn’t living from my source of purpose and passion. I wasn’t acting or dancing anymore and my body felt tight, contracted, and my overall well-being was not happy.
A friend I worked with inspired me to start yoga at Jivamukti Yoga Charleston (now Sat-sang Yoga) and so I went, fell in-love with the teachings, the music, and the practice. My mentor at the time, Jeffrey Rama Cohen, encouraged me to sign-up for teacher training, and because I held a lot of weight into him believing in me, I went. I made it happen receiving a 300hr certification and achieving 750hr apprenticeship. From there I taught at Jivamukti/Sat-sang Charleston, SC for a year and a half then moving on to teach at various other studios in-town and nationally. Eventually creating Chakra Love Vinyasa Flo ™.
My interest in yoga began very early, thanks to a few Sun Salutation taught to me by my aunt. I immediately began to cultivate an individual practice and self-taught through texts and attending yoga classes.
In 2012 I become a teacher certified Yoga Yoga Alliance at the Samadhi school in Florence. I carry out individual lessons, group and english classes at 1711 Ti Sana Detox Retreat & SPA. I teach a fluid and meditative style of Vinyasa Flow Yoga that combines fluid movements, coordinated with breathing (vinyasa) with static postures (asana), to create a safe practice, gradual and progressive. The ultimate goal is to bring inner peace, physical flexibility and mental valance
1. Eat greens and dark greens. Use them everywhere where possible, either raw or cooked. The fiber will make your stomach feel full and will help your body cleanse. You will feel full of energy thanks to its antioxidants and vitamin richness.
2. Drink 5 servings of your favorite herbal tea. 5 is only a suggestion… drink as many as you wish and don’t hesistate to chose your favorite flavour. Any type of tea is better to avoid the teine content. Drinking water either warm or cold will also help cleanse your body through urine.

10 Ways to Travel Healthy From Health & Fitness Travel
Being confined to the cramped space and stuffy recirculated air of an aeroplane for several hours can have a number of detrimental effects on our bodies, leaving us feeling tired and drained when we eventually reach our destination. Here, Health and Fitness Travel, the leading specialists in healthy holidays worldwide, round up 10 travel tips, so you can travel healthy, no matter how far your journey.
Baking vegan Panettone is not very fast, as it needs patience for dough to rise.
To prepare this cake we used organic flour, including Manitoba, very important for the success of the cake.
The recipe can be replicated using only whole spelt flour: in this case, however, the cake will not rise much and the dough will be quite heavy.
People new to traditional cooking are frequently surprised to learn that bouillon cubes from the store are a heavily processed food that without exception contain large amounts of neurotoxic MSG. Even organic bouillon cubes or stock cubes should be avoided! This recipe is made with Parsely but you can substitute is with Lovage if you manage to find it! Stock cubes are very handy, to add flavour, to make a quick broth, to make creams, soups, stews and lots of other dishes go further.
Doctor has said until now, to purchase toothpaste with fluoride for kids to avoid teeth decay… is this true?
After having made some research our reply is that it depends whether the natural source of the water that we drink is already rich in fluoride, but for sure it is not true for kids toothpaste, as this can have bad consequences: Fluoride is the 13th most abundant element on the earth’s crust, is a chemical ion of the element fluorine – fluoride has one extra electron that gives it a negative charge. A syhthetized version of this element has been added for years to drinking water and toothpastes “they” say it reduces the prevalence of tooth decay in the local population…

– With incredible anti-inflammatory properties, it also helps minimizing the odds of getting scalp infections.
– Heart diseases: Dark chocolate contains antioxidants such as flavanoids. Antioxidants are the best elements that a body can receive or produce as they have the capacity to prevent ageing by free radicals that can also cause heart diseases.
– Blood sugar levels: It is hard to believe that a sugar enriched substance can balance the blood sugar levels but it is true! The amount of sugar in dark chocolate does not affect your body much as its glycemic index is low. And the flavanoids that it is enriched with aids the influence that insulin offers on the sugar levels.
Eggs are a weird food, nutritionally talking… they have an incredible high quality part of proteins, and an incredibly fat, full of cholesterol part too. We will only use the best nutritional protein out of it.
- 500 ml eggs white
- Half courgette
Insects are a highly nutritious and healthy food source with high fat, protein, vitamin, fibre and mineral content. The nutritional value of edible insects is highly variable because of the wide range of edible insect species. Even within the same group of species, nutritional value may differ depending on the metamorphic stage of the insect, the habitat in which it lives, and its diet. For example, the composition of unsaturated omega-3 and six fatty acids in mealworms is comparable with that in fish (and higher than in cattle and pigs), and the protein, vitamin and mineral content of mealworms is similar to that in fish and meat.
