Give the gift of life: Donate blood today in Greenville – Plumas County Newspapers

Plumas County News

 
With the holiday events and #TuesdayGiving just passed, it is easy to lose track of time.  The first of two local blood drives has arrived in Indian Valley.  From noon to 5:30 p.m. today, donors can give a unique and special gift—a pint of blood for those in need.  The Greenville Community Blood Drive will be held in the small cafeteria/multipurpose building between the high school and the elementary school along Grand Street off Highway 89.  Appointments are helpful but not required.  Walk-in donors are welcomed.  If you have questions, call or text Sheri Schwartz at 661-435-7250.
Don’t dismay if you can’t make it today.  The Quincy Blood Drive is next Tuesday and Wednesday at the Jesus Christ Church of Latter-day Saints next to the hospital.  Susan Christansen (530-243-2424), that blood drive coordinator, can help you with questions or to set up appointments.  The two-day drive has appointments Tuesday afternoon from noon to 6 p.m. or Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Vitalant is one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit community blood service providers. They supply blood transfusion medicine services to nearly 1,000 hospitals and health care partners for patients across 40 states. Vitalant focuses on making sure enough blood is available for patients when and where they need it. And it couldn’t be done it without you as blood donors!
Please be sure to bring a photo ID and your mask.  Eat a healthy breakfast and drink lots of water.  Bring a jacket or blanket to throw over your knees if you get chilly.  If possible, go onto Vitalant.com to complete a Fast Track on the morning you donate to cut down health survey time when checking in.  Most important, do your best to attend one of these donation events or find a donation site in Susanville or Reno.  You really are needed.

Apart from being an ace fashion designer, Masaba Gupta is a hardcore foodie. She advocates clean eating habits. And, at times, she also shares glimpses from her healthy meal diaries. Today, Masaba decided to talk about safed petha juice. Masaba posted a snapshot of a glass filled with the juice on Instagram Stories and wrote about its benefits. Masaba said that she often ends up asking herself this – “Are we uselessly chasing weight loss, when we should actually be chasing an alkaline body?”

Masaba Gupta further explained that Ayurveda “pushes you to have an alkaline system. And, it does wonders”. She compared it with the benefits of having safed petha (Winter melon, Ash gourd) juice on an empty stomach. Masaba went to add, “I am a pitta type and I break my fast with it now.” Listing the benefits of the juice, Masaba said that the drink is a diuretic and helps relieve sciatica pain. It also cleans the small and large intestines and has anti-ageing properties. Best part? It cools the body. She then advised, “Drink as is or with a pinch of black jaggery or salt. See if it works.” Masaba also added the hashtag “Masaba swears by,” to her Stories.

Seems like Masaba Gupta has been consuming all things healthy of late. On Sunday, she shared a picture of jujube fruit on her Instagram Stories. She captioned the post as, “Ber, jujube fruit or Chinese date – call whatever you want – many names, many benefits.” The designer explained the benefits of the first which include sound sleep, better digestion, anti-inflammatory properties, and vitamins B and C (glowing skin). She stated, “It’s a blood purifier, contains 18 of the 24 essential amino acids the body needs to stay healthy and helps reduce stress. It’s in season now and eating seasonal fruit is the best thing you can do for your body.”
