Year of the Rat -- A Time for Renewal
Being the first year of the cycle, the Year of the Rat is considered to
be a great time for renewal. It is a good year to begin a new
job, get married, launch a project, and/or make a fresh
start. For me this means looking at your life and figuring
out where improvements can be made, both with your health and your
What areas of your health would you like to improve?
Remember Britney Spears' song "Toxic"? If you think you might
be just that then think about starting off with a new clean slate and
detoxify. Re-read my January newsletter for details on that.
Would you like to eliminate allergies? Start working on that before the
season starts. I've already noticed buds in some trees. I can
help you get lessen the impact of and perhaps eliminate your allergies.
Are you still putting up with pain? Why? Spring is on its way and
wouldn't you like to be able to be active without suffering?
Acupuncture is recognized by the Arthritis Society, the World Health
Organization (WHO), the National Institute of Health, and a growing
number of mainstream health professionals and researchers as being
effective for the treatment of pain. Things to note: the
results are not intended to be a quick fix; acupuncture helps heal, not
just sedate symptoms; it is NOT painful.
Perhaps you could use some help choosing healthy foods? Just
because the package shows something that SEEMS healthy, doesn't mean it
is. Perhaps you've read some of my food packaging rants.
Examples of words to look out for include "harvest wheat",
"fat-free", "sugar-free", "lite", "light", "diet", etc.
Learn how to read the labels on foods and supplements with a
more discriminating eye.

Year of the Frog -- A Fundraiser
about 25 years now, scientists have noted that the brightly coloured
harlequin frogs of Central and South America started dying off in the
cloud forests. It is obvious that these frail creatures with their semi
permeable skin are in trouble as 2/3 of the 110 known harlequin frog
species have gone extinct during that time.
frogs seem to be dying because of an increase in environmental
temperature and the increase of a fungus called chytrid which attacks
their skin. Like the canaries that were used in coal mines to determine
dangerous levels of methane gas, frogs are especially sensitive to
climate change and so are considered an indicator species of what our
future may hold if we don't make the necessary changes. Frogs devour
thousands of insects and also are important prey for birds, reptiles,
and mammals. Their disappearance would contribute to an imbalance in
you may know, I am inspired to support environmental causes. This is
because my role is to optimize health, and the health of all of us is
strongly connected to and impacted by our environment. This is the
information on an exhibit that will soon be unveiled at the Vancouver
and zoos around the world are becoming more aware and concerned with
the state of the world's frog populations and the Vancouver Aquarium is
no exception. As part of an ongoing effort to promote public awareness
of frogs and their important role in the wetland ecosystem, the
Aquarium will be opening a new exhibit that showcases both local and
exotic frog species and their environments. This exhibit will be
unveiled to the public in time for February 29, 2008: Leap Year
public exhibit and education messaging are intended to build public
support for recovery activities by increasing understanding and
promoting responsible behaviour towards wetlands and increasing
awareness about amphibians in general.
