Building a Strong Sustainable Food Culture
by Nadine LeBean
Thirteen years ago I moved to Saskatchewan from Edmonton, Alberta, with my partner and kids. We were searching for a simpler, much cheaper life. Before Saskatchewan, I was the type of person that shopped mostly at places like Planet Organic. I grew up with a father that was a nutritional therapist helping people heal their ailments with nutrition. He also lectured on health to hundreds of people and he would play the tapes of his lectures on the long car rides to his house in Lethbridge. As much as I rolled my eyes at riding with him listening to him on tape, I became quite aware of the growing food crisis and how it was affecting people’s health.

a heart’s calling…
by Mallory Dawn
I remember the first time I said, “no,” the second, third, and fourth. Time and time again I would say no and each time I felt a part of me shiver, an inner whisper calling from deep within. I remember looking into the eyes of the people standing before me, asking for various items, needs they had, requests for nourishment that didn't fall into the “vision” of the space we were inhabiting. With each set of eyes, each smile, each soul, with each sound of that word “no,” my heart’s whispers grew louder, louder, and louder. My heart’s whispers began to scream until I couldn't silence it any longer.

Tantalize Your Taste Buds with Some Flavour Country!
by Stacey Tress
Oh, I just love this time of year! I love all our seasons but I have a special fondness for the fall months. I’m writing this article in a July heat wave – we’ve been using our BBQ a lot as we don’t have AC/central air and adding additional heat to the house at this time of year is not a great choice. We tried, successfully, our first attempt at a BBQ pizza! It was delicious; having fresh basil and parsley close at hand really added that extra burst of flavour/yumminess. Next year we are manifesting a more functional outdoor kitchen and I look forward to sharing that story along with some tried and true recipes for outdoor cooking!
The Atlasprofilax Method
A Gentle Correction to the Atlas (C1)
by Harreson Tanner, RMT, Certified Atlasprof Practitioner
The Atlasprofilax Method is a gentle correction to the position of the atlas (C1) or the first cervical vertebrae in the neck. This method was developed by Rene Shuperelli of Switzerland in the late 1980s as a response to a severe neck injury he had skiing. There are three reasons the correction of the atlas can be helpful.
What You Need to Know About IRIDOLOGY
by Marina Cummins
The study of the eye markings originated in Asia thousands of years ago. More intensive research occurred during the 16th century, and the first serious breakthrough was made by Ignaz von Peczely, (Hungarian doctor, 1826–1911). Nature has provided us with an invaluable insight into the vital status of the health of the body by transmitting this information to the eye. The science of Iridology is based on the analysis of one of the most complicated tissue structures of the whole body –the iris.
Harmonizing Hormones for Better Health
by Nina Lane
Hormones. There are many. They play many, many roles in our body and can have a large impact on our mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. When they are balanced and in harmony we feel and look our best. We can imagine our hormones as the musicians of an orchestra playing a beautiful symphony with many parts. In good health our hormones harmonize in complex relationships, rising and falling like crescendos and diminuendos. All the instruments (hormones) need to play together to achieve harmony. However, when they become unbalanced, they can be a source of dysfunction in the body and poor health.

Since ancient times, rosemary has had uses as a fragrance, as well as for culinary and medicinal uses far beyond the countries of its native Mediterranean region, where the shrub grows wild. Its strong and spicy fragrance speaks for itself about the vigour it sends to those who use it. This herb’s preference for growing along the rocky seashore is where its name comes from – the Latin “ros marinus” means “dew of the sea.”
Self-Care is Never Selfish
by Bobbie-Lee Zeiban
Recently a friend lamented the growing self-care fad. “All the pampering, and ‘me time’. Wasting money on pedicures, and taking time away from their kids. It’s so selfish. I could never do it.” The comment, spoken so adamantly, almost vehemently, really threw me for a loop. The woman sitting in front of me was sweet and thoughtful; generally she wanted the best for people. This seemed so uncharacteristic.

I have been enjoying the gorgeous summer days and taking in the sunshine and warmth. I always hope the charge of warmth in my bones will keep me warm throughout the winter, but it doesn’t last long enough. (lol!) I planted a small garden rather late in the season and some of the seeds have matured and are growing nicely and some didn’t break the earth. I planted six seedling tomato plants and they are growing well and have a number of green tomatoes on them. Of course we’ve already had several frost warnings and thankfully no damage has been done.
