What’s the Human Body-Field?

While traditional healthcare has primarily focused on physiology, we are now seeing that energy and information control biology. In fact, frontier science proves that there is a regulating field of energy and information that operates in the physical body at the subcellular level. At NES Health, they call this the Human Body-Field (HBF), and they have researched its functions and structures for more than 30 years. In that time, they have discovered that the root causes of physical problems are distortions and blockages in the body-field, which serves as a master control system for all physiological function.

Rooted in Song

Song has grown with us through life’s many chapters. As babies our mothers sang to soothe and comfort, to get our attention and lull us to sleep as mother figures have done for generations. As toddlers we mimicked what we heard and began bonding with our families through singing songs about the world around us, silly songs, and songs to soothe us after bumps and bruises. These musical habits followed us as we aged to accompany skipping, discovering and courage. Many stepping stones are crossed in life which take us to new places, but our need for song is constant.

Get Your Mouth Checked!

An oral health exam is critical to the maintenance of your overall wellbeing. You should have your mouth checked at least once a year for prevention and treatment of any ailments. Even if you don’t have any live teeth, it’s important to make sure there are no signs of infections or early signs of cancer, growths, or cysts, and that your dentures are fitting you well. Leaving problems untreated usually leads to pain, periodontal disease, or tooth loss, and could make treatment more difficult, so it’s best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them.

Counselling and Art Play

Not knowing where you belong or fit in the world can be really uncomfortable. It can affect your sense of self, the energy you have, the goals you set, and the way you relate and compare yourself to others. Mindful art play is one way to change that! Counselling and art play can help expose your inner critic, develop self-compassion, deal with difficult memories, open up your creativity and capacity to cope, and develop your sense of self. Counselling, along with art play, provides a safe and neutral place to explore your feelings and options.

Don’t Leave Your Hearing Health to the Internet

If you suspect you have hearing loss, consult with a hearing health professional that can provide:
• a professional assessment, which is key to determining the degree and type of hearing loss;
• a hearing aid fitting (if hearing aids are recommended) to ensure you are equipped with most up-to-date technology to suit your lifestyle; and
• regular assessments and evaluations of your hearing.
Adapting to hearing loss can be challenging but hearing professionals can help you maximize the benefit from your hearing aids.

Celebrate Aging!

We often hear the negative about seniors in our society, rather than celebrating them. Seniors offer wisdom and life experience integral to the fabric of a vibrant community. They contribute by shopping, using services (keeping people employed), and paying taxes. Seniors volunteer and make more charitable donations than any other age groups do. Many organizations could not function without them. Additionally, they help with babysitting and caregiving for spouses and friends, ultimately helping others to successfully “age in place”. Take the time to acknowledge the contributions made by seniors. By making our community more age-friendly, we can all play a role in inspiring more intergenerational understanding and connection.

Choosing a Cosmetic Skin Clinic

Many people currently offer Cosmetic Skin Cervices such as Botox, Juvéderm, and a variety of laser treatments, but what makes a clinic good? One of the main things to consider is whether a doctor is in charge and what their qualifications are. Are they a specialist Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon? How long have they been offering Cosmetic Skin Care? Find out if you will receive one-on-one time with them, or whether you’ll be seen by a nurse or aesthetician. Lastly, do you prefer a busy clinic or a private setting? Wherever you go, make sure someone experienced and qualified is in charge.

Protect Your Vision This Summer

Many people fear the dangerous effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays on their skin, but few realize the danger imposed on their eyes. UV radiation can damage the eye’s internal layers, such as the macula, retina and lens. It can also burn the front surface of the eye, much like a sunburn on the skin. Just as we protect our skin with sunscreen, we should also remember to protect our eyes and vision with appropriate sunglasses. To provide sufficient protection to your eyes, your sunglasses should block out 100% of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.
