Happy Birthday Fabulous Canada!




We are so blessed as Canadians to be able to live where we do, breathe the air we do, drink the water we have right from a tap, and to utilize the abundant products & services available to us.

Buying local is a great way to support local producers and their talents. It can often 'cut out the middleman', and keep money within the local economy rather than going elsewhere. Buying locally does the environment good by avoiding costly, toxic modes of transportation and doesn't waste energy.

You don't have to become a 'locavore' to appreciate local quality! Food that has been produced locally is far more likely to be less preserved with chemicals than food that gets shipped in, and probably contains less packaging too.

Industrial food production relies heavily on fossil fuel consumption, which equal greenhouse gasses which equal climate change... Whereas local production creates jobs, provides wages, and strengthens the municipal tax base.  Overall, just better wellbeing for the community.

Everyone has their own ideas of what 'local' actually is, and that's ok. To some, it has to be from town, for others, within the province. Unlike when something is classified as 'organic' and has to adhere to strict guidelines, being local is not so stringent.

There's even a train of thought that suggests we only need eat within a 100km or so radius of our homes to meet our body's nutritional requirements. This ties in with not only eating locally, but buying in season.

Think of the pollution from jet fuel we'd save if we stopped importing bananas- just to name one of the many items we buy abroad!

Some interesting stats:

~The average carrot has to travel almost 3500 kilometers to your table

~Hawaii imports 90% of it's food

~A wheat farmer makes about .06 cents per loaf of bread

~Often with purchasing products locally, you get the added bonus of Personalized Service! Something you can't beat

Cancer & the Role of Nature's Medicine During Treatments

It's a scary stat that over 40% of Canadians may be faced with getting some form of cancer. It'd perhaps be too easy to breakdown just why this epidemic may exist taking into account our diets and lives of convenience and sheer lack of knowledge about health and how our bodies work. At the end of the day, we all want the best quality of life.

Treatments can wreck havoc on the healthiest of humans, chemotherapy, surgeries, radiation, immune and hormonal agents. Encouragement is there to research and understand more of what nature has for us in these trying times.

Mistletoe (injections)- usually used with conventional treatments can greatly help fatigue and other treatment symptoms including immunity.

Vitamin C (intravenously) - a pro-oxident that can battle cancel cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed.
