Stray Cats on the Open Prairie
One Cat's Story of Healing

by Dianna Medea

When I moved into my house three years ago I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the stray cats that happened to come into my yard, so I began to leave out dry food and water. When I saw a stray coming on the deck I would put out canned food or raw meat. Last fall when the cold weather was fast approaching I set up both a heat lamp and an insulated box complete with a fleece blanket in the garage; the strays gained access through a hole my brother cut in the garage door. One male cat, quite thin, with white, grey, and brown spots and a tabby stripe, had visited my deck a few times the previous spring. At the end of June he showed up with a large deep wound on the right side of his neck, about two inches in diameter, obviously a bite of some kind. What to do?

The Dangers of Sugar
by Paulette Millis

Did you know that white sugar is physically addictive? It is much like a drug and “the difference between sugar addiction and narcotic addiction is largely one of degree,” writes William Duffy in his book, “Sugar Blues.” Sugar is qualified as an addictive substance by the following two responses: 1) Eating even a small amount of sugar, for example, one candy or one bit of cake, creates such a desire in some people that they can’t stop; 2) When one quits sugar cold turkey, withdrawal symptoms appear, for example, strong cravings, depression, fatigue, mood swings, and possibly headaches.

Body Composition Analysis
A Tool to Help Prevent Health Risks

by Dr. Alana Barmby, ND

The promotion of healthy eating habits is more important now than ever before. Scientific evidence has linked unhealthy eating practices to the onset of chronic diseases such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The number of deaths attributed to obesity has doubled in the past fifteen years. Approximately 1 in 10 deaths of people aged 20 to 64 is linked to obesity; in Regina, 49 percent are classified as obese or overweight. The rates of obesity in Saskatchewan have increased 30 percent from 1995 to 2001. The common denominator in all these conditions is altered body composition.

Lotus Palm Thai Yoga Massage
Off-The-Table Bodywork

by Marvin Swartz

Traditional Thai Massage can be traced back 2,500 years to India. The founding father was Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, a celebrated yogi and Ayurvedic doctor. Most Eastern healing art traditions are derived from the philosophy that all forms of life in the universe are animated by an essential life force. In the Indian yoga tradition this energy is called, "prana," an invisible, silent, formless force that is present in everything. It circulates along a pathway, forming a network of vital life force, essential to the human system. In the Thai tradition, there are ten important lines. These lines are connected to acupressure points, and massaging them promotes the free flow of energy. In this way, Thai Yoga Massage supports the body’s natural healing processes.

Basic Elements of Psychic Medium Readings
by Glenyce Hughes

A psychic medium communicates with the spirits of your loved ones who have crossed over to the other side. When giving a reading, a medium may see images of the spirits, hear the voices of spirits, and sense both the presence and information about them. Giving a reading is similar to playing charades. As no two people are alike, neither are two spirits alike. One spirit may show the medium what they looked like when they lived on this earth in order to validate who they are, another may show the house they lived in. It is really up to the spirit as to what information they share and the medium's ability to interpret the information and pass it on to you in a way that you will understand it.

Editorial
by Melva Armstrong

This is the ninth anniversary issue of WHOLifE Journal and I am grateful to be celebrating this milestone. When I started the journal in 1995 I had no idea how long I would be in this business. Many changes have happened in nine years – personally, locally, and globally. What was initially often called the "New Age" movement has now grown to incorporate many new and different modalities, services, practices, and healing techniques. Thus the term "new age" is used less frequently these days and other current names such as, integrative medicine, complementary/natural health, wholistic health and wellness, body-mind-spirit, healing arts, body and soul, and so on, have replaced it. It has been exciting noticing the many changes and developments in this dynamic and growing field of natural health and wellness.
