an inspiring read
my mother'n'law gave me this book for my birthday. her online book club, was reading it. i quite enjoyed it. some of it is common sense that we have set aside and some is just plain inspiring. so now the book club i belong to is reading it, too! the world can always use more, nicer, more balanced, stress free people!!!
prepare to succeed!

Reflexology in Swift Current, SK

Reflexology is one of the most UNDER estimated tools in maintaining good health. By stimulating the reflex points in the feet (that are connected to every area of the body) the therapist can work with congestion & poor circulation; issues that lead to health concerns over an extended period of time. As a rule; issues show up in the feet before the symptom appears in the body. Thus by having regular reflexology, optimum health is maintained.

if you haven't heard about vibrational trainers yet, let us be the first to tell you. first and foremost they combine an equivalent of a 1 hour workout at the gym with 10 MINUTES on this machine. in our world of busy, hectic schedules this means more time to do the things we enjoy while still maintaining our health. this machine improves circulation, enhances balance & coordination, burns fat, tones & firms, improves flexibilty, decreases cellulite, low impact, boosts the lymphatic system and MUCH, much more. better yet this machine is doctor approved.

disrciminating eggs

my sister'n'law & i had the discussion awhile back about the difference between white and brown eggs. further research has proven the color of the egg takes after the mother's coloring. and in fact has NOTHING to do with flavour, nutritional value of the egg. i suppose it is important to note that rhode island hens are bigger thus eat more, produce larger brown eggs and this translates into more cost at the supermarket. who would have thought? i so love brown eggs, brown paper towel, brown note books.....does it come from the trend of recycled or growing up on a farm where the chickens layed brown eggs?

life on edit

as hawksley workman has inspired me to write. this artist pumps out albums sometimes on a weekly basis.....opposed to most artists on a yearly basis. what is his secret? staying in the honeymoon phase....not OVER editting. my connection? is all of the analysing and editting in our lives neccessary? NO!! be intuitive. be real. this is where we are most useful and free.

many clients ask us; what can we do better? why am i not well? can you fix me in my hour session?
health is not something that is just met in an instance. often times ill health occurs over many years. and thus healing is not over night either. the key in healing is digging deeper, who are we? what is creating my issues? how are my stress levels? am i feeding myself healthy, nourishing food? do i MOVE?? how many meds am i plugging into my system without learning more about them, including side effects?
vital balance's defintion of healthy living is this:
eat well. live well. be well. limit our stress. exercise regularily (doing something you enjoy, so there is more motivation to continue). think positively. be kind. expand our auras and feel others gentley touch ours. live in balance. enjoy nature and its helpful lessons. drink water. be open to new ideas/concepts. embrace life. enjoy the moments in life that cultivate richness of soul.

if we haven't told you "lemon" and breathe...we probably haven't worked on you:)

we have suggested lemon in our practise for years now. one for its magnificant color, (earth booster) and also for its therapeutic properties which i will explain:
-the romans use it for all types of poison
-effective in curing many digestive issues when mixed with hot water: billiousness, nausea, heartburn, constipation, worm infestations & even hiccups!
-when taken in the morning, acts as a tonic to the liver & stimulates it to produce bile ready for the days digestive demands.
-helps to dissolve gall stones
-high in vit c therefore, prevents and treats many infections
-speeds up wound healing
-brings down high fever
-relieves asthma symptoms, tonsilitis & sore throats
-diuretic (helpful in bladder infections)
-coffee and lemon juice can help treat EVEN malaria!!
-when applied to a nostril with a cotton ball can stop even a nose bleed

so in other words, lemon is very important to utilize.
contact your physician if you have further questions.

nomads hemp wear-EXCLUSIVE to SASKATCHEWAN!!!

vital balance is pleased to announce the Nomads Hemp Wear. arrival is expected early next week. while on vacation in kimberly, jennifer came across this fantastic line of quality, eco friendly clothing that didn't have any scams about "sea weed" in their products. after many washes, wear and tear these garments really do hold there shape and color. in a growing industry of "yogi" gear, this is sometimes hard to maintain. after many years of trial with different fabrics and "logos", this one we can't get away from. keep watch for more details.

dr. mist + vital balance bodyworks

i'm not sure about you, but i have been on the looooooong drawn out highway of deodorants. not that i have an overwhelming body odor i can't beat. it is simple, i choose not to use conventional anti-perspirants that cause oh such a long list of ailments......lymphatic blockage, breast cancer, memory loss, tumours.....etc. and there is enough research out there to MAKE me very diligent of what i apply under my arm! low and behold after years of experimentation i have found something that actually works. the perfect blend. so many times i would buy a wonderful new natural deodorant to be dissapointed that after 2 hrs i'm doing sniff tests and realizing indeed, we need to reapply. not this stuff, all day does it, without the side effects.
kudos to dr. mist
we have it available at vital balance.
