Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus are all about prevention and early detection.  This is why we LOVE Centro Dental as they are all about helping kids learn he importance of taking care of their teeth.  Oral health is vital for your child’s over all health.  As most of you know, I am a mother of two little girls and both of them go to Centro Dental in Richmond BC to see Dr. Danielle Woo.  Something that Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus are excited to share with all of you is how they are giving back to children in need.  Hope you enjoy this post… and thank you Centro Dental, it is amazing what can be accomplished if we all stick together.

drallanwooChild’s First Dental Visit, Centro Dental Gives Back

Importance of a healthy mouth in early life, Centro Dental helps!

The Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends every child to have their first dental visit by age 1. I know what you may be thinking. A 1 year old only has a few brand new teeth. What dental problems could they have? A baby’s first dental visit is a fun visit and helps establish the importance of oral and dental health early on. It is also an educational visit for parents. Parents are educated about proper infant oral hygiene, diet, and habits such as pacifier-use or thumb-sucking that may affect the teeth. Prevention is the key to a healthy mouth!

drdaniellewooBenefits of a Healthy Mouth
- Healthy teeth require less extensive treatment, saving time and money.
- Baby teeth hold space for permanent teeth, guiding them into place. Premature loss of baby teeth can result in crooked permanent teeth.
- Healthy teeth leads to better general health and nutrition.
- Healthy smile helps your child build self-confidence.

Unfortunately, not all children receive regular dental care. There are many barriers as to why children don’t receive dental care, and poverty is one of them. In an article published in The Vancouver Sun on November 18, 2013, “Hundreds, if not thousands, of B.C. kids go to school hungry“, Daphne Bramham reveals the astonishing number of poverty-stricken children in our province. These children not only go to school without breakfast, but lack basic necessities such as eyeglasses, clothing, money for field trips and dental care.

Dr. Allan Woo, wife Lynn Woo and her business partner Peter Young responded immediately to the article. Lynn and Peter’s charity foundation, Hearts of Gold, has been donating to food programs in Vancouver’s east side for the last two years. They were shocked to learn the need in their own hometown of Richmond. Centro Dental, together with Hearts of Gold, have committed to donating $100,000 over the next 10 years to help feed needy children in Richmond. In addition to the generous donation, the Centro Dental Team will be providing free dental care to children of low-income families with urgent dental needs identified by Vancouver Coastal Health. And of course, we will be educating children and their parents about the importance of dental health and prevention of dental disease.

Plant a Seed & See What Grows Foundation – Natural Factors

Categories: Newsletters, Shannon Chung
Tags: , , ,

Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus love Natural Factors, Plant a seed and see what grows foundation.  It is up to us to teach our children the Cvr-PlantASeed-only-1_1-297x300importance of growing organically.  We wanted to share their message.  Please check it out!  Hope you enjoy the post!

“Teach a child to plant a seed while they’re still open to learning, and let them see what grows.” - Roland Gahler, Chairman of Natural Factors

Community Gardens in Canada – Seed Preservation Programs

Community Gardens

“Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let’s stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another.” – Anne Raver, writer

Plant a Seed Foundation is committed to connecting people through wonderful gardens. The Foundation sponsors various community and school gardens across Canada to provide a wide spectrum of benefits – ecological, social, nutrition, and economic.

From an ecological viewpoint, community and school gardens increase green space, reduce the “heat island” phenomenon in urban settings, decrease carbon emissions, and reduce soil erosion. On a nutritional perspective, they give more opportunities for the community to eat more local vegetables and fruits. They also improve physical activity levels.

The economic benefits of community and school gardens range from improving food security, providing opportunities to donate food to local programs to reducing your grocery bills.

Community and school gardens also increase knowledge of growing, harvesting and cooking, and improve the social interactions of community members and students and add value to properties. Finally, community and school gardens give a sense of pride and stewardship.

Plant a Seed Foundation actively seeks not-for-profit, school and government partners to create more gardens.

For more information or to partner with us, please contact communitygardens@seewhatgrows.org

The future belongs to the young, and one of the world’s future geniuses could be living with you right now! But to achieve their full potential, children need to be encouraged and inspired. They need to be cultivated, like a garden that explodes into life when it gets what it needs. This book is about encouraging children to see what their future could be like, and to inspire them to respect and care for the earth while their minds are still open and receptive.

Sizzling Sumer Sale on Now! Flora CircuVein Just $22.99 until July 21st!

Customer testimonial: “I’ve been taking CircuVein for about two months to see if it would help my varicose veins and I definitely feel like it has, my legs feel less tired and heavy than they used to, which is great!” Nicole T.

CircuVein by Flora is a favourite not just among our customers, but our staff! Both Owner Alice Chung and Family Shannon Chung love this product.  We used to use Quest Bioflavenoids and then it was discontinued.  There was a void in the market for quite a few years to help people with varicose veins and circulation… until… Flora came out with this fabulous product.  I (Shannon Chung) am a mother of two.  I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old.  I had severe varicose veins and spider veins in my left leg especially and now thanks to CircuVein I am looking pretty awesome!  It is not just the appearance that has improved, but also the heavy, bogged down feeling that varicose veins give you.  Mine were actually quite painful, but not anymore.

 

Flora CircuVein Description:

Flora’s CircuVein is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of varicose and spider veins within just 2 months! The first product of its kind, CircuVein alleviates symptoms of varicose veins, and repairs and strengthens blood vessels. This clinically-proven formula also relieves symptoms of hemorrhoids.

CircuVein’s medicinal ingredients, Diosmin and hesperidin are bioflavonoids. They are found naturally in citrus fruits and we source ours from Spanish oranges. These bioflavonoids have been studied extensively since 1971 and have been proven both safe and effective.

Clear 60 Gel Testimonial (Alive Health Centre)

Categories: Eczema, Skin Care
Tags:

Testimonial on Clear 60 Gel   I just want to write to you guys for inventing this fabulous product!  I have been suffering from this dry patch of what I believe is to be Clear_ULTRA_Gel-8262eczema on my hand for about 2 years now and It comes and goes.  I have tried everything from natural products to steroids and to no avail.  I stumbled across the Clear 60 Ultra Gel about 3 weeks ago and at first I was skeptical about it but I purchased it anyways because I was desperate.  Also, the catalogue that came with it seemed pretty promising.  I applied it twice daily and for the first 4 days, there wasn’t much improvement besides that the patch was a bit more moistened but the redness was still there.  However, I applied it religiously for about one week and the results blew me away!  I really regretted not taking a before and after photo of the area because I truly thought that it was another gimmick product.. It has been exactly 3 weeks now and I can say that my condition has been cured! I could not ask for a better product. Thank you so much for inventing this.  I just wished that I have discovered this 2 years back instead of wasting money on things that did not help at all. Maggie

Thank you Maggie for sharing this testimonial with us at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus.

Maggie purchased the product at one of the Alive stores.
