ASK ALICE – Spring into Action!

“Time flies and we are into Spring! We had an unusual cold winter in B.C. with the greatest snowfall and the worst flu season ever in my 38 years in the health industry.

Lots of customers, including some of our staff were seriously affected by this vicious flu and were very sick. I was the only one at our Oakridge store who didn’t get sick!

I always believe “PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE!” Many of you know I take a lot of supplements and I even doubled up the immune products when people around me were sick. I am also the OLDEST! I don’t take flu shots and never have! Don’t wait till you are sick to take your Immune products, take them on a regular basis, like Vitamin C (at least 1,000mg); Turmeric, Cordyceps, Reishi; and always have the following available at home so when you feel something is coming, take them immediately and regularly: Oregano oil, Oscillococcinum (flu buster), Coryzalia (runny nose, congestion). Enjoy Spring and don’t forget to do your Spring Cleansing to start a Healthy Year!”

We hope that you will come and visit us at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus. Do not sit in silence; there are so many things you can do to better your health! Get excited and take charge of your health. Let’s work together, along with your doctor to ensure you are doing all you can to lead a happy and healthy life. Our team looks forward to helping you with what ever your health concerns are.

What’s In Your Cosmetics? Try Burt’s Bee’s

Categories: Beauty, Cosmetics, New Products!, Womans Health
Tags:

CA_EN_HomePageSlideShow1_Lipstick_BriannaPuckerPhthalates, found in lotions, body creams, shampoos and nail polish, have been linked to disrupting your body’s hormones.

So why do companies still use them? Phthalates help fragrances linger on the body. Unfortunately, they mimic estrogen. Endocrine disruptors are detrimental in two ways:

1. First, they block our hormones from acting as they normally would, and

2. Secondly, they can act like hormones, triggering effects that may include the early onset of puberty. Often, phthalates are not listed as ingredients in beauty products; to avoid them, go fragrance-free.

What are some alternative solutions to still have fun with Beauty Cosmetics and not have to worry about unbalancing your hormones?

Try Burt’s Bee’s! 

For those that use Burt’s Bee’s they are hooked for life.  Its due to their History, their Philosophy, their Culture, their integrity, their Sustainability and they practice what they preach.  Burt’s Bee’s has stayed true to themselves since 1984.  For those of you who have not ventured to see what Burt’s Bee’s is all about but are curious, Alive encourages you to dive in!  What was once a simple Bees Wax lip balm has grown to an empire of beauty that’s good for you and the environment.  They have everything from:

  • Original Burt’s Bee lip balm
  • Lip Shimmers
  • Acne Skin care line
  • Lip sticks
  • Cuticle creams
  • Make Up removers
  • and more…

Come into our Bentall location downtown or our Oakridge Mall location to learn more about Burt’s Bee’s.  As always we love to answers questions the good old fashioned way, give us a call at 1 866 499 9546

The Difference Between Wet and Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration

266-Lutein-Eye-18mg-60-CapsThe Difference Between Wet and Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration

By Lylas G. Mogk, M.D.

There are two types of AMD: dry (atrophic) and wet (neovascular or exudative). Most AMD starts as the dry type and in 10-20% of individuals, it progresses to the wet type. Age-related macular degeneration is always bilateral (i.e., occurs in both eyes), but does not necessarily progress at the same pace in both eyes. It is therefore possible to experience the wet type in one eye and the dry type in the other.

Dry Macular Degeneration

The dry (atrophic) type affects approximately 80-90% of individuals with AMD. Its cause is unknown, it tends to progress more slowly than the wet type, and there is not—as of yet—an approved treatment or cure. In dry age-related macular degeneration, small white or yellowish deposits, called drusen, form on the retina, beneath the macula, causing it to deteriorate or degenerate over time.

Wet Macular Degeneration

The wet/neovascular type affects approximately 10-15% of individuals with age-related macular degeneration, but accounts for approximately 90% of all cases of severe vision loss from the disease.

In wet age-related macular degeneration, abnormal blood vessels under the retina begin to grow toward the macula. Because these new blood vessels are abnormal, they tend to break, bleed, and leak fluid, damaging the macula and causing it to lift up and pull away from its base. This can result in a rapid and severe loss of central vision.

Although its cause is unknown, several new treatments are now available for wet age-related macular degeneration.

You can read more about both types of macular degeneration at Macular Degeneration InternationalMacular Degeneration Partnership, and Macular Degeneration Support, where you can also view a retinal photograph of dry AMD and drusen and a retinal photograph of wet AMD (also called exudative).

Alive FloraGLO®Lutein 18 mg – Eye Health is proven to help Macular Degeneration.  For more info read here.

We hope that you will come and visit us at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus. Do not sit in silence; there are so many things you can do to better your health! Get excited and take charge of your health. Let’s work together, along with your doctor to ensure you are doing all you can to lead a happy and healthy life. Our team looks forward to helping you with what ever your health concerns are.

Why YOU Need Supplements!

Featuring Brad King M.S., MFS, fitness and nutritional expert

Do you ever hear, “I don’t need to take vitamins, I am so healthy! I eat very well.” Number one is to eat a healthy diet and to exercise regularly, however, it is also good to take a step back and ask yourself to really listen to your body. Ask yourself can I feel better? After helping people for over 30 years, I see all the time that we are just too busy to take care of ourselves, so we ignore the symptoms of poor digestion, aches/pains, or unexplained weight gain. This can happen, even if we are eating right and are active! So why should you take Vitamins? 1. Current commercial agriculture techniques leave soil deficient in important minerals, causing the food grown in this soil to share the same mineral deficiencies. 2. Many foods are shipped long distances and are stored for long periods of time, both of which cause the depletion of vitamins in these foods. Another reason, according to Brad King M.S., MFS, fitness and nutritional expert, is that your cravings could be telling you that you have a vitamin deficiency. In his April 28th blog article Brad revealed that cravings of chocolate especially during a woman’s menstrual cycle may be in part due to a magnesium deficiency, as treatment with magnesium has been shown to reduce chocolate cravings. Also if you are always craving sugar, this is a sign that you are low in B-Vitamins. (See Page 3 Alive Vitamins Feature Page). Lastly, did you know why women during pregnancy crave pickles and ice cream? Research shows that ice cream is due to the body needing extra calcium and that pickles help to absorb the calcium. Therefore, as always our team of Wellness Associates look forward to helping you figure out what supplements you can take to make you the BEST you can be!
