About OK In Health

The CENTRE for INTEGRATIVE HEALTH and HEALING EST. 2004

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.

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.

Ireland Sacred Druide Tour 2020


Wellness Tip
Sport drinks?
You just finished an hour-long aerobic workout. You are sweaty, tired, and need an energy lift. Should you grab a sports drink to replace the nutrients lost during your workout? Often the answer is no. For workouts lasting less than 60-90 minutes, simple fluid replacement is usually your goal. However, it's important to drink moderate amounts of water before, during, and after exercise. Then choose nutrient-rich, post-workout meals to keep your body in balance.

Recipe
Kale and Cauliflower Casserole
Category: Side Dishes
Description: This is a nice way to add Kale into your meals. This recipe can be a main or a side dish. Kale is a leafy green cruciferous vegetable that is chock-full of essential vitamins A, C and K as well as minerals like copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. A cup of fresh kale has only about 40 calories but packs almost 3 grams of protein. Kale is being called “the new beef”, “the queen of greens” and “a nutritional powerhouse.”
Kale is high in iron. Per calorie, kale has more iron than beef. Iron is essential for good health, such as the formation of hemoglobin and enzymes, transporting oxygen to various parts of the body, cell growth, proper liver function and more.
Kale is high in Vitamin K. Eating a diet high in Vitamin K can help protect against various cancers. It is also necessary for a wide variety of bodily functions including normal bone health and blood clotting. Also increased levels of vitamin K can help people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Kale is filled with powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants, such as carotenoids and flavonoids help protect against various cancers.

Kale is a great anti-inflammatory food. One cup of kale is filled with 10% of the RDA of omega-3 fatty acids, which help, fight against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders.

Kale is great for cardiovascular support. Eating more kale can help lower cholesterol levels.

Kale is high in Vitamin A. Vitamin A is great for your vision, your skin as well as helping to prevent lung and oral cavity cancers.
Kale is high in Vitamin C. This is very helpful for your immune system, your metabolism and your hydration.
