Health means both Wealth & Wellness

The words “wealth” and “well-being” are related words in the English language for good reasons!


The word "wealth" comes from the Old English words “wele” or “weal” (well-being) and “th” (condition). Together they mean “the condition of well-being." (1)


"Health" comes from the same root as "wealth" ('heal' comes from 'weal')!  It means “being whole, holy, sound or well.” In Middle English it referred not only to physical health but also to "prosperity, happiness, welfare; preservation and safety.” (2)  In other words, Health is wealth.


If one has a lot of money, but suffers from poor health, is s/he truly "wealthy?"


Conclusion: being healthy is being well, whole, happy and secure

-and  wealthy.

Wellness is a Choice, Not a Fate

Healthy Couple
Choose Health!

The World Health Organization defines health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." This means that health is reached only when the whole person is well.


Illness is usually an indication that something is wrong in one or more of the following areas:




• immediate environment (work, home, travel, etc.)

• way of living, including exercise and sleep quality & quantity

• relationship issues or the lack of meaningful connections

• general attitude

• food choices

• air and water quality


By getting to the root of what is currently the problem, or potentially could take away your health and vitality, you can be in charge of your health!


This website offers many clues as to how we can create a healthier environment. Alternatively, do contact us to begin a whole-life assessment of the above areas!

Preventing illness -colds/flu's

This whole website is dedicated to the theme of staying healthy.

But most of us do get colds and flu's now and again. How can we reduce the number, and the severity, of these common ailments? This is an especially important question for those whose immune systems are compromised (such as seniors).  Flu's, after all, do kill thousands of people every year.

  1. Germ transmission: while we've all heard the message a million times, washing our hands with warm water and soap is extremely important. Judging from personal observations of men in public washrooms it is wise to wash your hands after shaking someone else's! But avoid liquid soaps and those advertising "anti-bacterial."
  2. Eating healthy: eating lots of organic fruits and especially colourful vegetables every day is extremely important. These food groups should be the majority of what you eat. See more here. Check for food allergies
  3. Get enough sleep: more than 7 hours
  4. Get enough exercise. At least 15 minutes of strenuous exercise a day. An hour is better, especially if you work hard, rest for a bit, then return to the strenuous exercise.
  5. Drink plenty of mineralised water. Otherwise germs and bacteria have a great time!
  6. Digestive aids: 70-80% of our immune function is located in our guts! So we need probiotics (such as in live yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kombucha and more) and enzymes (especially as we age). Avoid dairy products (except yogurt and kefir), especially when fighting a cold or the flu.
  7. Omega-3's: This is a healthy form of fat and is found in a variety of plants and fish oils. To improve the quality of plant-based omega-3's do add some turmeric and either cook or add black pepper. See more here.
  8. De-stress by walking near water or in a forest; meditating/praying; improve your most important relationships; laugh; have a nap, exchange plenty of hugs!
  9. Essential oils: oils known to support a healthy immune system include pure oregano, clove, eucalyptus, and melaleuca (tea tree). If pure oregano can be taken orally, and it immediately fights off bacteria (sore throat). These oils can be put on one's heels, especially if sensitive to them, on one's chest, or on the top (back) of one's neck. The best oils available are mail-ordered. Ask us how.





Residue of popular herbicide likely encourages illness


A chemical and food company wants us to believe that glysophate, a widely-used herbicide, is not only safe -it might be used to treat cancer!


How profitable, as it may also increase your risk for cancer.


Glysophate is considered to be toxic to animals, including humans. A study by two independent scientists, published in Entropy April 2013, connects the increasingly widespread use of glyphosate with modern diseases because of its "inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals. CYP enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics. Thus, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins."


In other words, it slowly induces disease.


"Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease."


A copy of the whole report can be found under the link GMO's.


Conclusion: only eat organically grown food or foods known not to have been sprayed with Round-up Ready herbicide. Consider also helping your cells to repair from this damage by using Asea.






Ending the Junk Food Obsession

We all know that smoking tobacco is bad for our health. With both public pressure and far higher taxes, smoking is (thankfully) on the decline in Canada.


Now we are facing the crushing health effects of junk food and beverages. These are filled with bad fats, sugar, and salt -plus colorants in soft drinks. The results are alarming: rapidly rising rates of obsity, diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, and far more. Our health care system can't keep up. It turns out that a tobacco company is the largest junk food company! Even the most ardent libertarian (who dislikes government intervention in our lives) may have to concede that doing nothing about this epidemic is harming all of us.


Thus we may have to do the same thing with junk food and drinks as we did with tobacco: apply social pressure as well as add taxes. We know that banning didn't work with alcohol (and isn't working with street drugs). At least taxing these ills will raise money needed to pay for the freedom to eat and drink ourselves into oblivion. For more information read this Globe & Mail article.
