Pharmacare 101

Pharmacare provides drug cost assistance to eligible Manitobans who do not have coverage under a federal or other provincial program. Pharmacare is income based, which means a yearly deductible is calculated based on the total adjusted family income (usually ranges from 3.01-6.81%). Once the deductible has been reached (minimum $100, no maximum) through the purchase of eligible prescription drugs at a pharmacy, Pharmacare will pay 100% of eligible prescription costs for the remainder of the benefit year. You should apply for Pharmacare even if you have private insurance. Application forms can be found online at the government of Manitoba website or at your local pharmacy.

Massage Your Nervous System

Massage therapy does not only improve your body´s physical state, but it also has a dramatic effect on your nervous system. Your nervous system is the one that maintains your body´s homeostasis, which is the state of equilibrium, balance or stable internal environment of your body. Research has shown that therapeutic massage therapy stimulates the nervous system to produce hormones that have tremendous benefit on the entire body. This stimulation removes the toxins and wastes in a more efficient way, helping oxygen to flow without difficulty through your body´s systems, restoring vitality and energy.

Master Your December Stress!

December has many things happening. The sun goes down earlier, making daylight hours short, and we don’t get a lot of sun. Work seems to be busier, and there are more commitments. With all of this pressure, it is easy to feel a little less than yourself. If the stress and anxiety are getting to you, it may be time for an acu-nap. Acupuncture has been shown to be a promising treatment for anxiety and stress. Making time for yourself is also recommended. So, make a bit of time for yourself and get in for an acu-nap to get the benefits of both.

Managing Disagreement About Parent’s Care

Conflict between siblings is relatively common when it comes to making decisions on caregiving responsibilities. Left unchecked, these spats can quickly unravel into full-blown family conflict — all while an elderly parent is waiting to receive the support he or she needs. But who’s going to pay for all of this? Money is one of the most frequent sparks that lights conflict between siblings. Some families find it’s easier to work through disagreements when there is a neutral party there to act as a ‘referee’. Someone like a family counsellor or mediator can help keep the discussion moving in the right direction.

Investing in a Hybrid Vehicle

You may not be aware that hybrid batteries are designed to last the lifespan of the vehicle! All this and you get unbelievable cost savings at the pump.

Stress Handling With Biofeedback

Every day, we have an estimated 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts running through our minds. Considering that our minds can only handle 7-10 bits of information at a time, no wonder we start to feel overwhelmed, especially at this time of the year. Unmanaged stress contributes to many health issues, such as headaches, exhaustion, insomnia, chronic pain, and depression, to name a few. Alternative approaches such as Biofeedback testing and treatment are very effective at handling stress. It detects imbalances, or weaknesses, in the stress handling areas of the body, and in turn, stimulates the affected areas to help the mind and body process and handle stress better.

Effects of Concussions on Vision

When someone has a head injury, they typically have vision problems that can be temporary or permanent. When a vision problem is causing or contributing to a problem with reading, balance, or movement, the recovery process will move slowly until the vision component is treated. Some symptoms might disappear after a while, such as eye pain or headaches, and yet other symptoms may remain, such as blurred or double vision, or vice versa. If you suspect that a concussion has caused vision problems resulting in difficulty coping with daily activities, see a developmental optometrist for a visual evaluation.

Self-Care for the Holidays

As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is fast approaching, it is important to be mindful of the precious little moments that we tend to take for granted. Grab a journal or a pad of paper and write down three things that you are grateful for every day. You can even make this a family project. Studies have shown that having gratitude can lower stress, anxiety, and depression. Some other tips that will keep us feeling our best:
• Drink more water
• Eat a clean diet
• Go to sleep earlier
• Volunteer at a local shelter or organization
• Practice mindful breathing
• Exercise daily
• Spend time with people who make you happy.
