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 3,000+ 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 3,000+ 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.

Cranio-Sacral Reflexology International Teachers Course        

OK In Health Presents
Hosting Special 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.

 

Next, we will be hosting some other speakers to come and to teach courses: such as an Anatomy & Physiology course. We will be attending many more health shows and festivals this year, as well as some OK In Health " Meet & Greet" nights in different areas.

 

 

 


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.

Wellness Tip
Vitamin D
Vitamin D aids in the absorption of dietary calcium which is essential for bone health. Recent research even finds that it can help fight infections. The body also makes it after exposure to sunlight. If you feel you might not be getting enough vitamin D, or if you are thinking of taking a supplement, consult your physician, naturopath, local health store, or a dietitian.

What is Chia?
Remember the early 90's and the ch-ch-ch chia pets? The popular decorative planters were, in fact, sprouted chia seeds. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is an ancient grain that was used as a staple food by early Mayans and Aztecs, who found benefit in its high energy production, easy transportation, and easy crop maintenance. It was also used within many medicinal applications. Today, Chia has been adopted by the public as a nutrient dense dietary "super food."
