The current issueHealth Benefits of Coconut
by Stacey Tress

Coconut, or Cocos nucifera, has fed and nourished populations around the world for generations. The coconut provides a nutritious source of meat, juice, milk, and oil. Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a "functional food" because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content. Coconut oil is of special interest because it possesses healing properties far beyond that of any other dietary oil. Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness. The coconut palm is so highly valued by them as both a source of food and medicine that it is called "The Tree of Life." Only recently has modern medical science unlocked the secrets to coconut's amazing healing powers.

Setting the Bar
Checking Claims of Popular Products is a Good Idea

by Sandra Brandt

Are you renewing or continuing your pledge to improve fitness levels despite a busy schedule? Are you planning, or still trying, to eat the healthiest diet possible, even though you don’t always have time to make meals from scratch? Do you like to pop a healthy(ish) packaged treat into your child’s school lunch? Are you trying to lose weight? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, the food and food supplement industry has a perfect product for you… whether an energy bar, meal replacement bar, protein bar, low calorie/low carb bar, or cereal bar… it is presented as a tasty powerhouse of nutrition wrapped up in one handy compact package. These products come with a wide variety of brand names, ingredient lists, health claims, added nutritional supplements, and attractive packaging.

Indian Head Massage
by Marvin Swartz

Indian head massage, also called champissage, is a holistic complementary therapy derived from India’s Ayurvedic healing tradition. Originally practiced at home on female family members as part of a beauty regimen, it is now practiced on men and women in hair salons and spas throughout India and elsewhere. Indian barbers perform Champi, an invigourating scalp massage designed to refresh and stimulate an individual.

Acupuncture and Infertility
by Andrea Kehler

Infertility is on the rise in Canada. Studies are now showing that one in six heterosexual couples will experience difficulties in conceiving. Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been used for treating infertility in both men and women for over 2,000 years. Acupuncture is a safe and drug-free therapy with no side effects. It is different from Western Medicine in that Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the root of the problem rather than just treating one’s signs and symptoms.

Yoga for Fertility
by Joanne Yanke

For couples facing challenges conceiving, a yoga class and regular practice geared specifically for fertility can greatly increase your chances of getting pregnant. The yogic path of deep breathing, stress reduction, and opening up tight musculature has been proven to increase your odds of natural conception and increase success of reproductive technologies. In cases of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) patients stress reduction practices increased success rates from 20% to 52%. In a class geared specifically for fertility, we are free to discuss topics of stress reduction, body weight, nutrition, Ayurveda and Eastern medicine, overcoming emotional barriers with the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and sharing knowledge of various things that enhance or hinder fertility.

Loving Mom... Mindfully Balancing Caregiving with Self-care
by Lynne Harley

I must admit to sometimes feeling sorry for myself… and this past week I had a few such days. I found myself wondering how the responsibility of supporting my aging mother fell on my shoulders, and briefly envied my siblings who have physical and emotional distance from the reality of my mother’s aging process. This was a particularly difficult week. I had too much going on in my own life; let alone trying to be there for my mom. I felt vulnerable and fragile. I was doing too much, too fast, and finally realized I was not doing any of it well. What happened to my sense of balance? It was time to take a step back and regain my footing.

Heart Disease: Our Modern Plague Resolved
by Dr. Gerry Bohemier

In the last hundred years, our society has had to endure an ever-increasing plague affecting the lives of millions. Cardio vascular disease, which is also known as atherosclerosis or plaquing of the arteries, is affecting younger and younger people with each generation. The disorder leads to the majority of heart attacks, strokes, and the spiralling costs of healthcare. It is the leading cause of death by disease in the developed world.

Astrology for Your Baby
by Patricia Sereno, Certified Astrologer

As a parent, have you ever wondered if there was an instruction manual for your new baby? Have you ever wanted to know what your baby’s special gifts, talents, and abilities are? Have you ever wished that you knew the perfect way to discipline or encourage your child? Have you ever felt frustrated when you were unable to support your baby when they faced challenges that were particular to them? Has your child ever gone through periods where you just don’t know what they want or need?

A Remarkable Canadian
by Donald Sutherland

In June of 2012, I had the privilege of sharing a classroom with a living legend. At the Canadian School of Peacebuilding, Ovide Mercredi, former National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations was my instructor in Great Leaders of Peace. Ovide is a graduate in law at the University of Manitoba with specialization in Constitutional Law.

Editorial
by Melva Armstrong

As I write this editorial, we are drawing near the eagerly anticipated and transformational date of December 21, 2012. We have lots of snow and fairly reasonable temperatures between minus 12ºC and minus 15ºC in the daytime. I have been enjoying my walks in the snow with the dogs and loving the sparkling fuzzy frost on all the tree branches. The sun hasn’t been showing itself for weeks now, so it feels like living near the North Pole. So much for Saskatchewan’s abundance of sunlight that we always brag so much about when we talk to folks who live near the ocean. That seems to have all changed now and likely those coastal areas are getting heaps of sunshine. So, is this all part of the new world that is being predicted for the future? It is hard to say.
