Pet a PET & live longer!!!

Studies have actually proven that simply petting an animal on a regular bases can reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks!!!! Not only this but really....when we are having a ROTTEN day, who is the most unconditional???? Our family or our pets??? 9 times out of 10, REGARDLESS of what we have done....the DOG (or cat, or pot belly pig or....) wags their tail and has a NATURAL way of lifting our spirits. Natural stress releasers. This in itself, in my opinion, reduces the risk of disease...when we feel good inside...our organs seem to function that much better!!!
So....love your animals, it is natural for them to love you!!!

Nature's Lipstick.....


My husband's family is from Ontario and many times I have had the privilage of showing up there when the leaves are changing. Being a prairie girl....our leaves change BUT the HUGE maple trees are second to none when the transition begins.
Color in itself has INCREDIBLE healing properties. Many different therapies associate different colors with different emotion/states. However, as an individual sometimes color is what we make it and how we connect to it.
The colors that make your heart and soul sing....grasp them and empower them within your lives!!!

We want you to be aware of AWARENESS....



There are enough products to "improve" our health out there to be seriously VERY overwhelming. Now if you have frequented our office you will know why we carry this line:
Awareness
My mother (and partner) has had a lot of digestive issues. After spending 1-2 months out of the year in the hospital...we were ready for an alternative. This is what initiated our search in alternative health care. This BLOG is a collection of some the info we have discovered.
Glenda started with this line (the multi-vitamin) and then slowly advanced to the rest of the line. Low and behold this woman can now function and is able to help even more people!!! Her results promted myself to try it....it has proved its usefullness. Like ANY herbal remedy, they need to be taken CORRECTLY and CONSISTANTLY. We are a very impatient society and refuse to let some of these treatment do there course. I would bore you to death if I ran through all of the specs on each product. Let us know if you want more info. Or check out:
I apologize in advance....this company really spends a lot of energy on "MARKETING".....yuck..give us the facts!!!! There product has proved itself otherwise...I can overlook this. Maybe I'll do a week on the products and introduce you to them....we'll see how much energy I have.

Please note: All supplements and medications should be gone over with your healthcare professional if you have any concerns or further questions.

Tea hee??

Perhaps I find nothing more nurturing than a hot cup of herbal tea. What is Flora's motto??? For every disease we know, God allows a herb to grow...something like that. Why is it too, that for every disease it seems the opposite has created a drug. I suppose to some there is a time and place.....fair enough. I just wish so badly that we could take care of ourselves enough that when we do feel a little run down we could rely on natural remedy our bodies don't reject...Our feeble little society has not come to this yet. However, we look to Europe and see their health revolution...Certified Aromatherapists within their healthcare system!!! (I'm sure they have there own problems but I shall focus on the positive they have created). What an incredible goal for our beautiful country Canada to focus on.
Well, sit down...put your feet up and enjoy your cup of tea!!!!
jh
ps. I have especially been enjoying a Bronchial tea my mother has given to me. thx Mom your a dear!!!! It has hollyhock flowers, coltsfoot leaf, licorice root, high mallow flowers, fennel seed, plantain leaf, primrose herb, and calendula flowers in it....YUM!!!!

Go through the doorway.....

I am always inspired by our clients to take on new challenges. I see their faith in our knowledge and feel within my own heart that I must remain a solid, safe example to follow. Now in ANY type of rounded approach to healing there is not just ONE segment. We like to encourage the following:
  • lifestyle change
  • keeping stress within its functional boundaries
  • dietary change
  • maintenance program (this is where we definately come in :)
  • POSITIVE THINKING (very important....our minds are VERY powerful)
  • remember to welcome change and to realize it is part of the journey
  • try to smile when there are lots of frowns....this in itself is a single well thing with RICH reward!!!!

Among other little things...which over time you will become aquaintenced with.

Now I admit I certainly haven't been feeling up to "par" lately. However, when I do a little rerun of the past couple of weeks....it has been CRAZY. We, including myself, need to take it easy. We need to set reasonable goals and boundaries so we can keep our lives in perspective.

We cannot remedy anyone else until we have remedied ourselves first!!!

When we have found peace with our health...physically, emotionally and spiritually...there is blessing and enough to share. The universe is most certainly a miracle!!! Experience life....don't let it dissappear and wonder where it went.
