As the TV commercials suggest, Hepatitis A and B vaccines are available. (Of course, with Hep B, you only get that from unprotected sex and dirty needles.) But there still is Hepatitis A and that you can get from drinking a glass of water. Ouch! So be careful.
And then there are parasites. That’s right, worms and as a general rule, the hotter the country, the more there are.
So be careful of what you eat.
An idea that we have promoted for years now is to take a
The people I saw pushing carts out of the stores, excitedly pushing the carts out of Costco in particular, were suffering from so many problems that it was mind numbing. Obesity would be the number one problem, but there we so many with an arthritic limp, as well as numerous other problems from hyperactive children to depressed adults.
It was like a bad movie called `The Night of the Walking Wounded”.
And in most cases, the cause of their problems were in the shopping carts that they were pushing to their cars.
As a health care practitioner, I find it so sad that people are addicted to their junk foods. And they know it and even seem quite proud of it. A Coke a day results in a weight gain of 5 pounds a year. A little over 2 Kilos for you younger folks. That means that in 10 years you are carrying around an extra 50 pounds (24 Kilos) of fat.
And the processed foods Read More
One inspirational speaker said that you have to really want “it” in order to make change happen. Well, really wanting something and making it a reality can be two different things.
Creating the life you can be proud of requires more than just a strong desire. It calls for change.
But what to change and how to change, there is the rub!
If you keep doing the same thing over and over, and keep getting the same old results, well, doing the same thing faster and faster still gets the same results. Change your patterning!
So here is another technique to change your patterning, and changing your life…. Read More
New Year’s Resolutions always seem to last about 20 minutes before we go back to our old life styles. How many times have you promised yourself you would change, only to wake up a short time later and realized that nothing has changed?
Change has nothing to do with being lazy, but everything to do with habits. We are used to doing things a certain way and our internal wiring is like a computer program. We are programmed to run a certain way. So the question is really, where did our programming come from and is it possible to change? Our environment programs us to survive, starting in the womb and perhaps even before we are conceived. Check out Dr. Bruce Lipton’s books, for an interesting read on how our environment shapes our DNA, our bodies wiring, and hence our behavior.
Change is not a result of wishful thinking. If only it was, wouldn’t it be a great world? Change is a result of hard work (don’t stop reading here)and there are proven ways to get the results you want. One way that we teach our clients to make a breakthrough is the “Mirror Technique”. It is important to realize that repetition is a must in order for this to start working. so here goes: READ MORE
Gluten Sensitivity is finally gaining traction. People are becoming aware of the symptoms of Gluten intolerance, and even some medical doctors are aware of this. So what are the symptoms you ask?
You can have any or all of the above symptoms, but you need to understand, this is not always a digestive problem.
I have found that so many people are unhappy with who they are and where they are in life, BUT they fight so hard no to change. They want to change, but doing something about it just seems too hard to do.
It seems as if a tipping point has to be reached, where your current discomfort finally becomes greater than the discomfort of going through a change.
This news story is just the tip of the iceberg. And yes, there are multiple factors involved here, from the drastic decline of “outside” time children have, the rise of the online world and all their accompanying games, to our dietary changes over the last 50 years.
And there is more. Read More
The sad saga of Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford never seems to end. It has gone from entertainment to an embarrassment.
And all the while Rob Ford maintains he does not have a drinking problem.
“Dr. Steven M. Melemis, a Toronto-based specialist in addiction medicine:
First, I’d try to help the person overcome their denial to their addiction. Almost everyone resists that one.” Globe & Mail
But Rob Ford is not the only one who maintains that there is nothing wrong, even when all those around are saying that “the house is on fire”. Read More

Just finished the Ultimate Wake Up and I have to share this story from that workshop with you.
My wife and I were travelling down a quiet country back road a few years ago and came across this HUGE snapping turtle in the middle of the road. And what did we do?
Well, we stopped the car of course, put on the 4 way flashers and out I got. Before someone hit that poor turtle on its journey to the other side of the road, I was going to be a good Samaritan and help it across.
Now this turtle was easily a meter in diameter, one of the biggest snapping turtles I have ever seen. And so I told my wife to stay in the car while I would carefully approach this beautiful creature from behind. I was planning to grab it
Hesitation has to be the greatest killer of ones goals and aspirations that I have ever encountered.
I have heard those actual words too many times over the years. Everyone wants more in their lives, everyone wants something better.
But most people are so stuck in their ways, in their comfort zone that no matter what the circumstances, they will find a way to stay where they are.
And so I am putting out a call for to anyone who really wants to change their lives. Coming up, right here in Ottawa Canada is a yearly event that changes lives, makes people move forward in ways they never dreamed possible.
If you are ready to “Live Your Purpose”, then click this link to our Ultimate Wake Up that is coming on November 1,2 and 3rd. or call our office at 613-592-8100.

Take a moment if you will and listen to a former participant.
“During the summer of 2009 I was working at the local golf course and came across a sick Canadian Goose. I approached the Goose to see if I could help it, but upon closer inspection it became clear to me that it was on the verge of death and beyond saving.
Not thinking much of the encounter I continued working, until three days later when all of a sudden I lost the ability to extend my legs. Dumbfounded by what was happening I painfully tried to regain the ability to walk. With time some mobility did come back but, now I could stand no longer than two minutes without collapsing due to sharp pain in both legs.
The next few years involved numerous trips to specialists that were the “best of the best”. They did the full array of tests (MRIs, Ultrasounds, Nerve conduction studies etc.) to find the root cause of my problem, but everything came back normal.
Eventually the doctors began to ask me if this could all be in my head, but I knew it wasn’t. One by one they said “There is nothing left I can do for you” which left me with the empty feeling that I was going to have to live with this condition for the rest of my life.
By the fourth year of this illness I had given up hope and accepted my fate. My parents on the other hand never stopped trying to find a cure and one day sent me an article about a man named ….. Read More
One of my “Big Life Goals” has been to catch (and safely release) a giant Frazier River Sturgeon.
And for anyone who fishes, there is a big difference between fishing and catching. The difference is similar to the difference between dreaming about something and achieving that same thing.
And so, on my last birthday, after years of planning, I went fishing for the big fish. Take 80 seconds out of your day and witness a life-time goal being actualized!
And for anyone who wants to make their dreams come true, there is still time to register for the Ultimate Wake Up workshop coming up this November 1,2, and 3rd in Ottawa, Canada. This yearly workshop makes things happen. Go to the link or call our office and speak to Evie at 613-592-8100.
I can still remember last year’s workshop. Oh my goodness, the possibilities were opening wide in front of me. My husband and I had just returned from a trip to Hungary, and we’d sailed back to North America on the Queen Mary 2 before grabbing a train back up to Canada. Zsolt was starting a new job with a new company, and I was happy, healthy and cancer-free.
The world was my oyster. And yet, I somehow felt lost and uncertain in a strange way. Maybe it was from having experienced cancer first-hand, or the fear of it coming back, maybe it was from feeling displaced, or from not keeping pace with my peers . . . all I knew back then, was that there was a feeling within me, and it kept asking: What comes next?
So stuck with this lack of direction, despite all doors being open, I signed up for…. Read More
When I was a kid growing up in the small town of Edson Alberta, there was a magic drink that my mother refused to make. It was called Kool-Aid. My mother said it was nothing but sugar and wouldn’t make it.
But we got to drink it at my friends house, and I must say, it tasted a lot better than water. Orange flavored Kool-Aid was the best, tasted even better than real oranges and the color was the magic touch.
And then one time, we made Kool-Aid at our house. I can’t remember if it took 2 cups of sugar… Read More
Her upcoming 50th birthday has scared her into thinking about what she has done with her life and where she is going.
“I’m going to turn 50!” she said, as if that was the end of the good years in her life.
And that was where we started to dig deeper into what the real issue was.
