I know there are so many people here in the Mountain Kingdom who are so excited about winter they can barely contain themselves. This is a ski and winter sport mecca, so I get that. People look forward to this season all year and obsess over snow predictions as a Wall Street investment banker might obsess over the stock market. I get it. Really, I do.

There are a significant number of...

Every pre-season I make the same promise to myself: this year is going to be different. When the snow hits and the chairs start rounding the bull wheel, I’m going to be ready. My need for cardiovascular fitness, endurance, flexibility and strength training will be aligned via a realistic and attainable regime, the ultimate goal being the ability to stack back-to-back days on the ski hill right...

Interior Health is being anything but vague in dispelling a rumour that Trail's critical care units are slated for closure.

The rumour, disseminated at least in part by email, indicated that the new heliport at Trail's hospital will allow IH to transport critical care patients to larger centres, thus closing the critical care units now operating at the Kootenay Boundary Regional...

The war on pesticides is ramping up again in Rossland and council will once again have the opportunity to enact some type of pesticide ban bylaw at their next council meeting on November 8th.

Just shy of nine months ago, following a presentation to council by the Canadian Cancer Society and Prevent Cancer Now, city staff gave council with three possible courses of action...

September and October is usually times when everyone gets back into their routines, whether work, school or home. This a great time to see if you have established a good foundation for the winter months ahead. Let’s start at the base of health- sleep.

It’s extremely important that everyone has at least 7-8 hours/night of non-interrupted sleep. This is the time children should...

 Do you ever feel you need a bit of a pick me up but all the snacks you reach for tend to leave you feeling sluggish afterwards? You want something sweet but are trying to cut refined sugars out of your diet (good choice, by the way)?

I’ve got the perfect snack for you! It’s healthy, energizing, alkalizing, and totally fulfilling. Okay, I realize this already sounds like a cheesy sales...

Now that it’s fall, and this year already some cold nights, it’s time to start thinking about making your elderberry tincture. It’s perfect timing, since it seems like the first round of flu has happened with the kids going back to school.
 
Elderberry trees are thin, mid-sized trees that look almost like tall bushes that branch out with narrow, long leaves and have an...

Dear editor,
 
 As residents of this area, we believe everyone deserves to be protected from the health effects of pesticides, which have been linked to a multitude of illnesses including both adult and childhood cancers. It appears most residents of BC agree with us. A public consultation, conducted by the Government of British Columbia last winter resulted in more than 8,000...

 Well here I am attempting to stop the start of something awful. A cold. I know many of you will say, “’Tis the season!” Well, I don’t believe in the whole “flu season” or “cold season” nonsense. But that’s for a whole different column. And I’ll be honest: I don’t believe in taking things for colds and flus, either.

I know, most of us run to the medicine cabinet and rummage through it at...

Note, in my last column, I suggested mostly vegetable proteins. There are many reasons the body needs at least 3-5 tbsp. of raw nuts and seeds/d. They lubricate your joints, decrease inflammation, keep the veins/arteries from being clogged and are an excellent source of Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Boron,...
