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.

Workshops, Courses & Events Directory

One of the best advantages of the OK In Health website is that we can publish last minute workshops, events or changes - so we are up to date with news of workshops or local events. We recommend posting your event up to 3 months ahead of time.

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.

New Year, New You - Behaviour Change Tips
The new year is often seen as a time of renewal. The practice of making resolutions dates back to the time of ancient Babylonians. While many people make resolutions, only 10 percent of people are able to sustain a change after a few months. Why are the majority unsuccessful? One pitfall is setting up too many resolutions. People also fail because of what is called the false hope syndrome which means they have...

Recipe
Jo's Award Winning Butter Tarts
Category: Desserts
Description: This is a slighly altered version of a traditional butter tart. The original recipe called for corn syrup, but agave is a healthier choice.

While agave (pronounced ah-GAH-vay) is best recognized as the plant from which tequila is made, it has also been used for thousands of years as an ingredient in food. The nectar made from the plant is known in Mexico as aguamiel, or "honey water."

The Aztecs prized the agave as a gift from the gods and used the liquid from its core to flavor foods and drinks. Now, due to increasing awareness of agave nectar's many beneficial properties, it is becoming the preferred sweetener of health conscious consumers, doctors, and natural foods cooks alike.
