The current issueHealing Qigong for Women
by Deborah Davis

The most powerful tool for healing lies within you — your breath.

Breath is our inherent gift at birth that anyone can learn to cultivate for vibrant health and self-healing. Can you imagine leading a dynamic life into your sage years without medication and disability? The Chinese have developed breathing exercises called Qigong, which have been used for over 2,000 years to obtain health and longevity.

Salt of the Earth
by Sandra Brandt

What we commonly think of as salt is a compound known as sodium chloride, or NaCl. All salt comes from the sea; it can be obtained from either ocean water or from inland salt deposits, which are believed to be the remains of ancient sea beds. Natural salt is about 98% sodium chloride, with sodium itself being about 40% of the total composition. The remaining 2% or so is composed of a large number of minerals, many of which are essential to living organisms. Common table salt has been processed using high heat and bleaching agents to remove these trace mineral “impurities,” leaving about 99.9% sodium chloride, plus the addition of an iodide compound, introduced in the 1920s to prevent iodine deficiency diseases (iodine being one of the many minerals removed in the refining process), aluminum silicate or another anti-caking agent, as well as sugar in some brands to stabilize the iodide.

How Gardening with Native Plants Improves the Health of Your Living
Space and Promotes Well-being

by Chet Neufeld

Gardening is known as a therapeutic pursuit for many people and can relieve stress. It also keeps the mind and body active. There are also many environmental benefits of green spaces around your home such as a more moderate temperature which decreases heating and cooling costs, increased biodiversity, habitat for beneficial wildlife, and better water capture. Using native plants is a healthy and environmentally-friendly way to pursue your gardening interests, because they don’t require fertilizers or pesticides.

Psychosomatic Energetics
by Wendy Lucyshyn

Do you notice about yourself that you will tend to avoid confrontations or arguments because you cannot speak up and say how you really feel? Perhaps you have frequent fatigue issues? What about not feeling like you can deal with emotional issues and instead stuff your feelings with food or other addictions? Why and how these emotional and/or physical conflicts occur are questions that led to the method of Psychosomatic Energetics (also known as PSE).

The Heart-Body-Spirit Connection
by Tanis Helliwell

For three years I have been teaching a course in Zurich, Switzerland, called Spiritual-Body Psychotherapy for psychiatrists, physicians, and healing practitioners in various disciplines. Spiritual-Body Psychotherapy involves working with our body consciousness, which I refer to as the body elemental, to determine the underlying spiritual causes of illness and less than optimum health. In this work, we have discovered that the heart plays an essential part in orchestrating health in the body and in restoring spiritual, emotional, and physical health to the individual. In fact, the heart is as intelligent as the brain and has as great an impact on us in determining our moods, behaviours, and ultimate happiness.

Angels in Action

Inspiring Healthy Choices at Causeway Natural Health

by Carol Marriott

When I moved from Calgary, Alberta, to Humboldt, Saskatchewan, in 2006, one of my first priorities was to check out two things: one, was there a coffee shop with “real” coffee? and two, was there a health food store with organic and local options? I was lucky enough to discover both and more. Beyond finding Causeway Natural Health store, a great place to buy local, organic food, supplements, and a wonderful variety of cottage craft gift items, I also found the store’s owners, Cathy and Andy McAnally, and knew then I had found community.

Editorial
by Melva Armstrong

Welcome to our 16th anniversary issue of WHOLifE Journal. It is hard to believe a year has already gone by since our 15th anniversary celebration event. Time is certainly speeding up and I’m sure we are in for exciting times ahead. Each year, I love the transformation as we move from the cold, bleak winter into the long, bright, sunny days of spring. It is as though we awaken just like the trees do and, like them, we begin the process of blooming.
