What does it mean to live in the fullness of your masculine heart? Well. this month we dive into Jungian work as we explore four archetypes of the masculine. Based on the work by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette in their seminal book King, Warrior, Magician, Lover we explore what the mature masculine looks, feels and acts like. We do so because once we harness the energy that these four horsemen bring into our lives, we are then able to raise the level we show up as fathers, husbands, brothers and leaders. Join us on April 12th and 26th to learn where you are out of alignment with these powerful archetypes.
Avoid Injury This Spring
Spring means two things: yard work and stiff, sore muscles. Stretching to prepare muscles for strenuous activities that have not been done since fall is very important. Simple things like doing arm circles, shrugging your shoulders, and touching your toes should be done before and after activity. If you do overexert and your neck, shoulder, arm, or back pain is not going away within a week, there are natural alternatives that can help. Options such as designed nutritional formulations, Biofeedback, or NIR Therapy will reduce inflammation and stimulate muscle repair to help you recover quickly and get back to enjoying spring.
Testimonial: A Younger, Fresher Look
When I first started treatments, I was skeptical about how much change I would notice. After several sessions, my skin had a healthier look, the pinched look of my upper lip had almost disappeared, and the skin under my eyes was tightening up. By the end of 12 sessions, I really noticed a difference around my eyes and upper lip. The rosacea around my nose and chin has also almost been eliminated. I have been to one follow-up session and plan to come back every 4-5 months. I’m 60 and am told I look more like 45! – L. Bellamy
Say Hello to Allergy Season
It’s important to know the difference between seasonal allergies easily treatable with a simple OTC antihistamine and more serious symptoms that may require more attention. Seasonal allergies typically cause a runny nose, itchy or teary eyes, sneezing and sometimes itchy skin or a mild rash, and are caused by pollen or other airborne particles. If more serious symptoms like hives, difficulty breathing, a rapid heartbeat or feeling faint appear suddenly it may be the result of a more serious allergic reaction and immediate medical attention should be sought. Pharmacist are trained to assess and treat allergies, which includes the ability to prescribe the medications you may need.

Acupuncture for Gastrointestinal Disorders
If you’ve tried conventional medicine to keep digestive problems in check without success, consider acupuncture, which is a holistic health treatment without side effects. Many modern clinical studies show that acupuncture alters various biochemical and physiological states to treat a wide variety of gastrointestinal illnesses, like irritable bowel syndrome, Chron’s disease, gallstones, heartburn, indigestion, constipation, and diarrhea. Acupuncture may help by improving gastrointestinal motility and restoring stomach acidity to normal levels; Reducing serum levels of serotonin which can help the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome; Reducing inflammation by promoting release of vascular and immunomodulatory factors, and improving delayed gastric emptying.

The Obstacle is The Way
How many times have we avoided doing something because someone or something placed an obstacle in our path? Likely more times than you want to admit. Here’s the thing. It doesn’t matter whether the obstacle is mental, physical, lacking a particular skill, or a limiting belief. None of these is true. How is it that a mountain can be moved with a belief the size of a mustard seed? That mountain IS the limiting belief we have about ourselves and the purpose of the obstacle. When we encounter obstacles we allow ourselves to discover what we are made of. To reveal and break free of self-sabotaging behaviours. This month we take on the obstacles in our lives as we develop tactics to overcome them.

Kiss Your Bad Breath Goodbye
Everyone gets bad breath from time to time – but bad breath that doesn’t go away could mean you have an oral health issue. The most common cause of bad breath is poor oral hygiene, other causes can include dry mouth, and certain medications. When you don’t brush your natural teeth and/or dentures regularly, this can cause plaque and tartar to form on your teeth(both natural and false). If you’re struggling with bad breath that doesn’t go away, it’s important to see your denturist. They will be able to evaluate your oral health and determine what steps to take next.
