How It All Began… After a health battle that left her searching for alternatives, Charlotte Bonogofsky founded Icy Mountain Water Co. in the basement of her duplex in 1992. Originally, she wanted a health product store. Her goal was to help people conquer their depression and other health issues. A small distiller that produced one gallon of pure water every 8 hours was purchased.

She started giving the water away with the herbs and vitamins she sold but soon there were so many people coming that a larger distiller had to be purchased. After a while people requested the purchase of 5-gallon bottles of water so more distillers were purchased. Soon heath products and bottled water consumed every corner of that tiny duplex, and it was time to find a new location.


Health and Fitness Directory 2019

Her first storefront was only 300 square feet but the rent was cheap and it became apparent why when the temperature started to fall and winter set in. There was no heat in her tiny part of the building. Having outgrown that store in a matter of only one year (and being tired of wearing a parka and gloves at work) she packed up with her one employee and moved to the next store with double the space at 650 square feet. After 2 years she was given an eviction notice by the City and given 10 months to find a new location. A new roadway was coming through her half the building. This led to the current location of more than 7000 square feet. Over the years her husband Neil, and daughters Brandy & Amanda, have joined Charlotte in the family business… not to mention the newest addition, Charlotte’s grandson who came www.digitalcopyworks.com

to be in 2012. You will often see Cayson, or at least hear him. Also, for a short time her Mother was also employed. Now along with the family a team of dedicated staff members helps to provide the service you have come to expect from Icy Mountain Water Co. In 2005 we decided to purchase the distributorship for Riplees Ranch Holistic Cat and Dog food. When we were approached with the opportunity, we quickly saw how incredible it was. Our 11 year old ShihTzu at the time turned into a puppy again and we got to enjoy her for 6 more years! Her grey fur turned back into all its vibrant colors, along with her hipper puppy attitude. ALL of her health issues went away!! This Canadian Made, Grain Free, Holistic recipe is preserved with vitamins and has no artificial colors, dies or preservatives. With its cage free meat, this premium pet food had us sold! Now we just would like to be number one in Canada. ;) If you would like your free sample come and see us! We have since added to our Pet line with Deerview Meats Raw bones that support Healthy Happy Pets! We






are Medicine Hat’s only local Manufacturer of bagged cubed ice. Our Bottled Water area has grown from Medicine Hat to include Dunmore, Redcliff, Seven Persons, Bow Island, Burdett, Foremost, Suffield, Ralston and Jenner. Our many health products include The Goodly Company, Riverstone, Melaleuca, Sunrider, and products such as our Omega Juicers and Excalibur Dehydrators are distributed throughout Western Canada. We have the state of the art bottle washing equipment that puts us above and beyond bottling standards. We take pride in our water treatment, office coffee, and one of a kind Drive Thru. Icy Mountain Water has grown into the largest locally owned Water Company in Medicine Hat. We are happy to help you with any of you and your pets health needs. Everything in our store is quality tested to hold up to our high standards and we are quite proud to be able to have served Medicine Hat since 1992! We look forward to many more! Thank you Medicine Hat for making it such an amazing journey… to be continued…

South Country dedicated to communities South Country Co-op Ltd has always been dedicated to our communities and the people that drive them, which is abundantly clear when it comes to our pharmacies. The pharmacists and staff who work the front line behind the counter have our member owners’ and all customers’ best interests in mind, and want to help you attain and maintain optimal whole health. Pharmacists are the last step between the patient and their medication, which is why pharmacists’ primary mandate is to ensure the prescription is compatible for each person. They make sure there won’t be drug interactions, that the dose is appropriate for the patient and won’t cause harm instead of helping, and that the patient isn’t allergic to the medication or anything in its makeup. Our pharmacists must also deal with insurance companies over the phone to verify coverage, as well as drug manufacturers or other pharmacies if there’s a medication shortage, which can eat up valuable time. Additionally, their records have to be meticulous on each patient to ensure you get the best, most accurate, and safe assistance. Our pharmacy staff wake up every day with the goal of helping our patients and making a difference in their lives, and our communities as a whole. The dedication and attention they pay to each patient is the same, but sometimes can cause unintended inconvenience to other people when tasks take more time than anticipated.


Health and Fitness Directory 2019

Your local pharmacists do more than fill prescriptions though, and their roles are expanding all the time! Every day they help with immunizations, quitting smoking, medication reviews, and more. As well, Coop pharmacies have valuable programs to assist in almost any health-related situation.

Some of the benefits of being a Coop member at our pharmacies are: • Free medication reviews • Free flu shots • Help with your blister packing needs • Injection services for things like B12 vitamin shots, Shingles, travel vaccines, etc. • Free smoking cessation programs • Pharmacists available with additional prescribing authority in certain locations • Free delivery within Medicine Hat • So much more! Throughout the year our pharmacies focus on different aspects of healthcare to help illuminate their importance and educate our communities. Sometimes there are parts of our personal health we don’t even think about or realize need to be addressed— that’s just one reason why pharmacists are so essential to our lives, and we want to ensure our member-owners and customers get the best possible care from our Team. www.digitalcopyworks.com

In 2019 some of the themes our pharmacies will cover include: • Medication Reviews: comprehensive reviews of all prescription and nonprescription medications help to educate the patient (what time is most effective to take the medication, does it interact with any food, drink, or other medications, what the medication does, etc.), check if current medications are still appropriate and safe, and how effectively they’re working. If you have any questions or concerns about the medications you’re currently taking you should bring them up with your pharmacist for answers and solutions. • Allergy Answers – what’s the best strategy to prevent seasonal allergies and minimize your symptoms? What’s the best medication to treat your symptoms? Ask your Co-op pharmacist! • Blood Pressure – our pharmacists will advise you on effective lifestyle

changes that can help lower your BP, what the best device is to monitor your numbers at home, and how to read and interpret your BP measurements, among other things. • Flu Shots – the importance of the flu shot extends beyond yourself! By getting your flu shot you’re helping to keep those with compromised immunities protected; some people cannot safely get the shot, and risk infection from those around them. Another complication that can develop is pneumonia, but there’s a vaccine for that too, which brings us to… • Immunity Boosts – Vaccines are important tools in maintaining your overall health. They produce immunity to specific diseases by preparing your body to fight them more effectively so you won’t become ill. If you need a vaccine, or think

your health could benefit from specific ones, please consult with one of our pharmacists who can give you the information you need to make an educated decision. Co-op Pharmacists can administer a number of vaccines that include (but aren’t limited to): 99 Flu (influenza) 99 Shingles (herpes zoster) 99 Pneumonia (pneumococcal) 99 Hepatitis A and B 99 HPV (human papillomavirus) The benefits of being a member-owner of South Country Co-op are innumerable, and our pharmacy services are outstanding. If you have any questions or need healthcare advice please don’t hesitate to ask any of our pharmacy staff the next time you’re at one of our locations. We’re dedicated to your whole health.

It seems these days that everyone is talking about “Gut Health”. A simple definition of a healthy gut is when there is a proper balance of good and bad bacteria. Unfortunately, our lifestyles today often encourage an overgrowth of bad bacteria; poor diets starve the good bacteria while feeding the bad and use of antibiotics not only kill the bad bugs but also the good bacteria that our gut so desperately needs. It doesn’t take long for the bad bacteria to take over and then a wide array of health problems can arise. Often we are treating a symptom


Health and Fitness Directory 2019

of an unhealthy gut instead of treating the root cause by healing the gut. For example: acid reflux can be a common symptom of an unbalanced gut. Instead of healing our gut, we treat the symptom with heartburn/acid reflux medications. There are many more examples of how we unknowingly ignore our gut’s cry for help by merely treating the symptoms. Isn’t it time to treat the main cause? You’ll never know how fantastic you could feel until you do!


Take this quiz to find out if your gut could be unhealthy and over run with bad bacteria... 1) Do you struggle with fatigue or low energy? YES NO 2) Do you suffer from gas, bloating, and/or acid reflux? YES NO 3) Do you experience moodiness, depression, or severe anxiety? YES NO 4) Have you taken antibiotics in the last couple years? YES NO 5) Do you have strong cravings for sweet or starchy foods? YES NO 6) Do you drink pop, sports drinks, alcohol, or coffee? YES NO 7) Do you eat junk food and/or fast food often? YES NO 8) Do you get sick several times a year? YES NO 9) Do you have food sensitivities or intolerances? YES NO 10) Do you suffer from frequent headaches? YES NO

If you answered “YES� to 4 or more of these questions, your gut could be unbalanced and unless you take action, your unbalanced gut may continue to worsen and your health may suffer. Take care of your gut, you deserve to be healthy! To learn of the simple, peaceful, and delicious way that I am helping my gut, please email me at: promoworks4u@gmail.com or visit this website: mysite.plexusworldwide.ca/shelleylinette

“When someone in the family has a hearing loss, the entire family has a hearing loss” -Mark Ross, Ph.D


hen you lose hearing, you lose it permanently, you cannot return to 20/20 hearing. Our goal is to work with you to help maximize the amount of hearing you have left. Hearing loss is one of the world’s most common health problems. Trying to hide or compensate for a hearing loss is much more obvious than wearing any pair of hearing aids. At Hale Hearing, we allow patients to try out hearing aids at no cost for 30 days, in order for them to truly realize how it can improve their lives. His advice for people trying out hearing aids for the first time: Wear them, wear them, wear them – all the time, every waking hour, then, go back and talk with your practitioner. Your satisfaction will vastly improve if you do those two things. Your hearing has to be relearned, not just purchased. When you first begin using hearing aids, your brain will be startled to receive these signals

that, up until now, have been missing. It is a learning process, much different than putting on a pair of glasses and enjoying improved vision instantaneously. Remember, the job of your hearing aids is to help maximize your current hearing

The sooner we seek treatment for hearing problems, the more successful we’ll be at slowing the negative social, psychological, cognitive and health effects that come with it. levels. It just takes time, patience, and practice. Stick with it!

By Holly Oakes, RMT The disease fibromyalgia tends to be difficult to diagnose as symptoms can be similar to several other conditions. It is usually diagnosed after all other diseases or disorders are eliminated, and is solely based on symptoms, as there are no diagnostic tests that can be diagnosed with 100% accuracy.


Health and Fitness Directory 2019

There are several theories on the causes including, but not limited to; physical trauma, extreme psychological stress or an unknown trigger(s) which causes a flare which slowly increases over time. It is also believed to arise from an overactive nervous system. The most common complaint from people suffering from fibromyalgia is pain and fatigue. It can be slight to severe and can change from day to day. The pain can range from dull to stabbing, usually in the muscles and joints. It involves several areas on the skin that have tender points which, if touched, can increase the pain. Fibromyalgia also results in a loss of restorative sleep with occasional morning stiffness and/or spasms and can leave the person with a feeling of overwhelming fatigue. This can lead to memory issues, www.digitalcopyworks.com

Health & Fitness

commonly known as “fibrofog”. Repetitive movements, due to chores or hobbies, can also increase pain symptoms and cause numbness, tingling and/ or burning sensations. This can cause a decrease in daily activities. All of these (and several other symptoms) can also lead to feelings of anxiety or depression. A new massage technique offers hope for sufferers. It shows great promise in helping to decrease fibromyalgia symptoms. It involves a short assessment focusing on 6 points to determine both whether the client has fibromyalgia and the areas of restrictions. This does NOT involve the trigger points, or ‘knots’, and will not aggravate symptoms. The technique uses gentle pressure and lymph drainage techniques to focus on releasing specific fascial restrictions (fascia being the connective tissue between organs) in the abdomen and the meninges and membranes in the brain. This helps reduce abnormal pulls on the muscles and nerves that may be escalating the body’s response to the pain. It takes approximately 1 to 3 treatments to decrease up to 75 percent of the symptoms. This technique can help increase quality sleep, energy levels and cognitive abilities. It can decrease dizziness,

light headedness, anxiety/ depression, pain and digestive issues. This massage can also benefit clients with other neuroinflammatory diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, mononucleosis and posttreatment cancer clients. The abdominal portion of the massage can help with IBS, Crohns and Colitis. The brain work with the meninges can help with whiplash, concussions and anxiety/depression.

By Tara Stricker-Woodhouse I worked in the social services for 20 years but had always wanted to take a deeper more holistic approach with clients, work that really got them to the root of their problems and included a spiritual component. Then, my life was turned upside down when my husband passed away, and I knew I could wait no longer, I had to pursue what my intuition had been telling me for years. I looked into various forms of coaching but it was "Whole Person Coaching" that jumped out at me because it includes all of who you are and comes from the philosophy that you know what is best for you and the coach is just there to bring out that wisdom. When I signed up for the coaching course, I never expected (or could have imagined) how it would change my life. I went into it with the desire to support others, but I never realized how much it would have (and still does) support me. I can't say it enough, I think


Health and Fitness Directory 2019

everyone deserves a coach, and this is not about thinking that everyone is broken. Instead, it is a belief that we all have areas of our lives where we are not shining our brightest! It may not be that we are suffering, but rather that life could be so much more. I think a lot of us go through life surviving, settling for an OK life when we could be thriving in a fabulous life! I went into coaching thinking I am pretty self-aware, that I have a lot of skills, and that my life is good...boy I was wrong! It wasn't even on my radar that my level of happiness and self-understanding could be this high! This does not mean that my life is always all positive, there are still storm clouds. But what I (and my clients) have gained is a way to handle those difficult times with strength, trust and the ability to tune into our inner wisdom. I have learned that I am fully capable of www.digitalcopyworks.com

handling life's challenges, we all are. In the past, when a storm cloud rolled into my life, I would go into my head and catastrophisize the whole thing. I would over think to the point of obsessing. Even after the storm had passed I was still thinking, recycling through fear, shame and thoughts of how I should have and could have done better, Then, when another storm showed up on the horizon, I would go into hyper drive trying to control the situation, reliving the last storm in mind and body. Holy anxiety!

Now, I have the confidence to enjoy the day rather than living in fear of an approaching storm. And when one does appear, I take a deep breath, brave the storm and trust that it will pass. I use the skills I have gained to weather the storm, and at times, even find myself enjoying the challenge. I see this same growth in my clients and it is amazing to watch them blossom! This is why I think everyone deserves a coach. We all deserve to realize our natural potential and to fully shine our light and thrive in an authentic life!

Colon Cleansing! An ancient health modality

Historical View

Stenosang web of esophagus Barret’s esophagus

Historians tell us that the practice of Colon Hydrotherapy or, in its most basic form, the enemas was first used by the Egyptians. The Evers Papyrus, of the 14th century B.C., and the Edwin Smith Papyrus (c. 1700 B.C.), both mention enemas and give directions for the use of the enema. The Essene Gospel of Peace Book 1, the health teachings of Jesus Christ, teaches that if you do not cleanse the bowels with water that has been warmth by the sun you will never relieve yourself of disease. Today some modern Colon Hydrotherapy equipment use Ultra Violate light to kill bacteria and viruses prior to entering your body. The 17th Century became known as the “age of enema”, or the “age of clysters. It was an acceptable practice in Parisian society to enjoy as many as three or four enemas a day, the belief being that an internal washing or “lavement” was essential to well being. By the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, with the advent of rubber, the enema or clyster slowly gave way to colon hydrotherapy equipment, which improved the cleansing of the colon. Dr. Kellogg reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in over 40,000 cases, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The rest were helped as a result of cleansing the bowels, diet, and exercise. Colon Hydrotherapy eventually gained the attention of James A. Wiltsie, M.D., who contended that our knowledge of the normal and abnormal physiology of the colon, and of its pathology and management, has not kept pace with that of many organs and systems of the body.” He went on to say, “As long as we continue to assume that the colon will take care of itself, just that long will we remain in complete ignorance of perhaps the most important source of ill health in the whole body.” Now in the 21st Century, Colon Hydrotherapy is gaining popularity over enemas due to the fact that the water is purified prior to being used, and it will clean the whole colon, as opposed to enemas in which the water is not purified and does not clean the whole colon.

When the colon is not functioning properly, toxic material may be absorbed into the bloodstream leading to an array of health problems. Our equipment is state of the art, FDAcertified, offering you a safe, effective and advanced method of colon cleansing.
