About OK In Health


Your support is greatly appreciated for this
integrative health & healing community website.

Our members are like-minded people of all backgrounds, lay and professional, who support an interest in a natural approach to health care, from all over British Columbia and across Canada and the world, that support this OK In Health network.  Established in 2004, we provide workshops, health care practitioner listings, articles, health tips, recipes, and more, for our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.  One of our main focuses is Health and Healing Workshops. We also provide specialty coverage for natural health related issues such as maternity, women’s and families, our environment, natural animal care, practice & support groups, health stores & natural businesses, local health events, and workshops.


The reason why we started this website in 2004 was because it is so much better to hear about a workshop or course before, rather than after the event. Together with strong community support, we developed this website to help promote local practitioners, workshops and events plus provide informative, educational information for our 5,000+ readers. One of the best advantages of the OK In Health website is that we can publish last minute events or events months ahead of time, all for the same low cost.
We have OK In Health representatives in Okanagan, Northern BC, Vancouver & Island, Kootenays, Alberta, across Canada, and Western USA. In 2006 we launched OK In Health In Ireland too. 


2008 SOSHF Health & Fitness Educator Award

We also provide a free monthly newsletter, which reaches over 5,000+ homes. If you would like you receive a monthly OK In Health eMagazine with information on upcoming workshops and events, articles, featured local practitioners and monthly free give away prizes, then please Sign up.

Workshops, Courses & Events Directory

OK In Health Presents
Hosting Special Events and Media Sponsors for events

Maria and OK In Health host some of the world's most renown teachers, each year. In 2005, 2006, and 2007, Maria brought Chris Stormer from South Africa to the Okanagan, in BC. In 2008, Maria invited Dr. Martine Faure Alderson from England to come to teach her Cranial Sacral Reflexology course, which was a great success. Due to this course filling up so fast, we plan to bring Dr. Faure Alderson over from England again.  In 2010, we were very involved with bringing Dr. Deepak Chopra to the Okanagan, followed by Wayne Dyer and Gregg Braden. We have also worked with Hay House, Doreen Virtues and other events.



How we promote OK In Health

We invest in promoting the OK In Health website by advertisement on TV and in newspapers plus health magazines such as: Issues, Gala, Common Ground, Aromascent Journal, Canadian and Irish health magazines, and community newspapers like: Penticton Herald and Tourist magazines, Kelowna Courier, Kelowna and Penticton Rec Guides, South Okanagan Desert Connections, Vernon, Kootenay's newspapers.
You can also find our posters in health stores and health & wellness businesses. We attend health shows and provide brochures to Canadian & Irish Health Fairs, BC Parades, Practitioner offices, at workshop and events. For more details see our promotional page and testimonials. 



If you would like to support this website, please sign up for our free newsletter or request a poster for your office or local area notice boards.

Wellness Tip
Tips to Lower Sodium Intake
Have you been advised to limit your sodium intake? If so, try to eat a variety of raw, dried and frozen vegetables. Most of them are naturally low in sodium. Canned vegetables generally contain a significant amount of added salt unless the label states that it is low in sodium. Look for descriptions such as "no salt added" and "reduced sodium" on the Nutrition Facts labels when buying canned vegetables.

Ireland has been settled for almost 10,000 years with virtually every Townland in the country showing signs of a range of human impacts. As many as 120,000 Monuments are known and the range and number of these sites are growing on a daily basis due to ongoing public and private survey and research projects. There are virtually no empty spaces in our landscape from an Archaeological viewpoint.

Almost Alfredo Sauce - Wheat Free
Category: Dressings
Description: Much of my passion for food comes from working with an amazing caterer when I was thirteen. The cornerstone of many recipes is a good white sauce; but how do you make one without using wheat? It took a while to get the proportions right, I hope you enjoy it!
