Maria Carr grew up in Ireland and after years of studying, travelling, and working in Ireland, Europe, Canada, Australia, and other places, she settled in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada, in the Okanagan Valley in 1992. She continues to have adventures and recently has explored Paris, Mexico, and South America (Costa Rica, Columbia, Panama Jungles).

Maria Carr has worked in the health field for over 25 years. She was a Dental Surgery Assistant (DSA) for 18 years and she went on to work at an Okanagan health food store for five years as a Natural Health Consultant and Digestive Care advisor.  Maria also spent many years as a Cadet Youth Leader in St. John's Ambulance and extensive work with brain injury recovery patients.

She has also specialized in Healing Touch & Healing Touch Support for Pregnancy and Childbirth, Cranio-Sacral Reflexology, Medical Intuitive and has created the organic "Celtic-Healing Creams".

Maria started the "OK In Health" website in 2004, as she felt there was a real need for networking and supporting of our Health and Wellness Community. She felt there was also a need for a main place to post all workshops and natural health related information in the Okanagan, B.C., & AB...  
In 2006, Maria went to Ireland to launch OK In Health - In Ireland.

Having a completely green business was a very important part of the goals for OK In Health, hence why we only offer an e-Magazine. 

Maria met and attended training by digestive care expert Brenda Watson, metabolism expert Brad King, hormone expert Lorna Vanderhaeghe, herbalists & medicinal mushroom expert Terry Willard, fats, oils & nutrition expert Udo Erasmus. Maria represented OK In Health and had special one on one meetings with Neale Donald Walsch, Dr. Gabor Mate, and attended lectures by Dr. David Suzuki and Barbara Coloroso and others.

Maria also had the chance to meet and attend lectures by Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay, Caroline Myss, Doreen Virtue and even had a reading from Sylvia Browne, plus she met spiritual intuitive Colette Baron-Reid, stress management, humour consultant Loretta LaRoche, and psychic medium Lisa Williams!

Maria hosts a weekly Health Column in 5 Okanagan newspapers and was invited to give a talk to 200 people at the "2008-The Year to Create". Maria's topic was called - "Create Your Dream!"

Maria is the founder, editor, and web designer of the ‘OK In Health’ website and is enjoying watching the growth of the website, thanks to the tremendous support from all our 3,000+ members.

OK In Health has been highlighted on the success of OK In Health on "Okanagan To-day" tv show on Shaw Cable.  OK In Health was also featured on TV when awarded the 2008 SOHF Health & Fitness Educator Award by MLA Rich Thorpe.

for her work on OK In Health and the community.

Wellness Tip
Are you are buying Organic or GMO Fruit?
How to use Fruit Labels to know when you are buying Organic or GMO Fruit. As much as we may dislike them, the stickers or labels attached to fruit speed up the scanning process at checkout. Cashiers no longer need to distinguish a Fuji apple from a Gala apple, a prickly pear from a horned melon, or a grapefruit from an ugli fruit. They simply key in the PLU code - the price lookup number printed on the sticker - and the market's computerized cash register identifies the fruit by its PLU. The numbers also enable retailers to track how well individual varieties are selling. For conventionally grown fruit, the PLU code on the sticker consists of four numbers. Organically grown fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 9. Genetically engineered fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 8. So, a conventionally grown banana would be 4011, an organic banana would be 94011, and a genetically engineered banana would be 84011.

Acceptance is often confused with being in agreement, in other words saying yes to something. If I accept my current circumstances, than I must be satisfied with the outcomes I’ve got… right?...

Recipe
Raw Cookies for you and your Pet
Category: Homemade Pet Food
Description: Raw Cookies for you and your Pet
Here is an easy recipe for bars that you can also give to your animals.
Choose dried fruits that are unsulphured as many people and pets are sensitive to these additives which have been linked to allergic reactions, asthma, and bowel disorders. They may be slightly less appealing to the eye (colour may be darker), but the flavour will still be good. Store dried fruit in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
