After meeting with local Interior Health Authority staff members and learning that the IHA no longer has the resources to support grief counseling, a palliative care Social Worker, or perhaps even continuing to coordinate or train Hospice Volunteers, representatives of the Trail Area Hospice Committee felt that forming a Society to address the needs of clients and volunteers was the...

I have not mentioned much about animal proteins, such as red meat (pork and beef) and dairy.  These are inflammatory to the body and should be used only in small portions.  If you have any inflammation in the body, such as rheumatoid arthritis, joint or muscle pain, bursitis, tendonitis, colitis or any other “itis” (which means inflammation) these should be minimal. 

If you have none of...

Since hitting a bit of a plateau in my workout regime, I’ve been putting together a new exercise program for myself. Harder, faster, and more blood, sweat, and tears. Ok not really with the blood and the tears, but definitely more sweat. 

Truthfully, I’ve been a bit lax on myself since starting my new business venture, but I figured that in order to get where I want to be in terms of...

Seeing their parents decline is an emotionally difficult time of life for Trail families coping with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.

 

“It challenges our sense of who they have always been, and how we relate to them,” says Linda Hoskin, the local support and education coordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.

A grieving process is necessary, she says...

The City of Rossland took a big step this week towards becoming a pesticide-free community. The issue of developing a pesticide-banning bylaw came before council for the second time in the past seven months, this time in a motion from Councillor Kathy Moore. Whereas last time the motion fell in a deadlocked council, the results this time drew a rousing round of applause from the...

So there’s probably more than three things you should have every day, but for the well-being of those who are easily overwhelmed, let’s keep it simple. 

Number one! A smoothie. And not just any smoothie, a “green smoothie.” You may have heard the term floating around, and thought: Yes. Exactly what I want in my body - A strange, thick, green sludge of a drink. You may have thought...

So, now we have laid a foundation, next we will discuss basic nutrients. When I ask what people eat during the day, one of the common problems is lack of consistent protein at each meal.  Three meals are extremely important, even if you are trying to lose weight, because it is the first meal that “starts the engines” in...

Banning the use of pesticides in Rossland will be back on the City Council Agenda tonight. Councillor Kathy Moore will be speaking to her motion that Rossland ask city staff to develop a bylaw banning the use of pesticides in Rossland based around the bylaw Invermere put in place just over a year and a half ago. 

Diana Daghofer of Prevent Cancer Now has recently issued a challenge to...
