Living the Fairy Tale There are not many women who can say that they didn’t pretend to b e princess in a castle when they were little. They spent countless hours dressing in their mother’s high heel shoes and old dresses pretending to b e in a tall tower protected by a dragon. Of course, they were waiting for their dashing prince to arrive. Years later, those same princesses may not dress up anymore, b ut there is a little part of them that would still love to b e in a fairy tale. There are real places in the world that can help fulfill that “fairy tale” experience.

Little Venice in Colmar, France is a kaleidoscope of medieval colour. Colmar is located in the Alsace region of north eastern France. It is a town with a lot of character and fairy tale appeal. A section of the town is referred to as Little Venice, and for a good reason. There are quaint, romantic canals that wind through the quarter. There is no better spot for a princess than a castle. Europe has many castles that are fit for queens. Ashford Castle in Ireland is not only a nice place to visit, but also a wonderful place to stay and feel like royalty. The 13th century castle has b een made into a 5-star hotel. Guests can enjoy falconry, horseback riding and clay pigeon shooting during their stay. Continued on Page 6... May 2016 | 5

Travelling through Europe, there are many castles that are perfect for sharing royal moments. Sitting on a hilltop high above the Bavarian countryside is another 13th century castle. Duke Frederic IV of Nuremb urg b ought the castle in 1318. It was his family’s home for 500 years. Today the castle is home to a hotel. Tourists enjoy the majestic grounds and couples looking for a fairy tale wedding are able to share their nuptials in a 15th-century chapel. Amberley Castle in West Sussex England is a little older than the 13th century beauties in Ireland and Germany. The English castle dates back to Henry the 1st in the year 1100. Like many other castles, it is now a royal place to stay. This castle has kept a lot of the charm of past years including a 60-foot curtain wall and a working portcullis. Guests of the castle will enjoy magnificent views of the Sussex countryside from their rooms. Castello Delle Quattro Torra in Italy is a majestic hilltop castle that overlooks Siena and the surrounding lush olive groves. The family-run b ed and b reakfast attracts those wanting royal treatment and those wanting to learn ab out royal cuisine. Guests of the hotel can sign up to take cooking classes and learn how to become gourmet Italian chefs. No tour of castles is complete without a trip to Scotland to Inverlochy Castle. The majestic castle’s grand turrets, formal gardens and private loch have attracted many guests including Royalty and Hollywood celebrities.

This Month IN HISTORY Speech and Hearing Awareness Month How many times have parents asked their kids to ‘turn down’ the music? And how many times did those very parents hear the same thing from their parents growing up? Every great song on the radio, every concert, every action movie we have ever heard has stuck with us in more than just one way. I know you can read this message, but are you hearing it?    We all take our hearing for granted. In fact, one in four Canadians has experienced some sort of hearing loss. What’s more, one in fi e Canadian youths has signs of hearing loss. In order to make themselves heard, Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists spend the month of May bringing awareness to the professions that deal with issues surrounding speech, language, and hearing disorders.  Speech and Hearing Awareness has b een celeb rated during the month of May across North America since 1927. The annual event celeb rates those who work with patients who suffer from speech, language and hearing problems daily.  Speech-language pathologists work with Canadians of all ages and assist them with speech delays and disorders. This includes articulation and motor speech challenges. They also help children with pre-literacy and literacy skills including reading comprehension and writing. Speech pathologists are an integral part of treating communication disorders including hearing


impairments, traumatic brain injury, dementia, developmental, intellectual or genetic disorders and neurological impairments. Audiologists may be the people that test hearing and fit hearing aids, but they are much more than that. They work with infants, children and adults who suffer from hearing disorders. They assist those who suffer from Balance disorders including vertigo and constant dizziness that could have been caused by Menieres disease, ear infections or head trauma. Communication Health Assistants are a vital part of speech and hearing treatment in Canada. They assist the Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists during assessments. They help perform screenings and provide direct treatment to patients. Assistants also provide listening checks and help troub leshoot any issues with hearing aids. Research has shown that ninety percent of people with hearing loss can improve communication with hearing aids and counseling. During the month of May it’s time to listen up. Forty-six percent of people aged 45 to 87 have experienced some sort of hearing loss. Protect your hearing. If you know you will be exposed to any loud noises or sounds, wear hearing protection. The concert you are going to will be rocking and the noise level will be too. Remember to take along earplugs to help protect your ears from being damaged. If you take young children to a movie or loud performance, invest in earmuffs that will help muffl the sound and protect their little ears. If you think you have experienced any type of hearing loss, make an appointment with your family doctor. Your physician will refer you to an Audiologist for further testing.  Sources: | es

You name it, we treat it!

On the second Sunday of May each year, sons and daughters in Canada celebrate Mother’s Day. It’s a time to thank those women who have supported and encouraged us throughout our lives. After all, these are the women who have worked tirelessly to answer every request, to teach us, to comfort us, to drive us, to inspire us, and to laugh with us. Don’t they deserve their own day?

we treat PAIN anywhere, we treat sports injuries, we treat infertility, we treat insomnia, we treat headaches, we treat stress, we treat depression, we treat anxiety, we treat eczema, we treat asthma and seasonal allergies.

The earliest signs of Mother’s Day can b e traced b ack to ancient Greece. Each Spring, the Greeks held a festival that was dedicated to maternal goddesses.

Feel the shift towards a healthier you. Try our free 20 minute Acupuncture/Craniosacral Therapy consultation.

However, it was Julia Ward Howe, hundreds of years later, who suggested that the US celeb rate a day in recognition of mothers. Howe was an activist and writer who penned the famous Civil War song “Battle Hymn of the Republic”. In 1872, Howe suggested that Mother’s Day be celebrated annually on June 2nd and that it be dedicated to peace. She felt so strongly ab out the day that she wrote Mother’s Day Proclamation in Boston in 1870.

b een inspired b y her own mother’s dedication to her family. After her mother’s death in 1905, Jarvis vowed to fulfill her mother’s desire of having a day to recognize all mothers. It was Jarvis who b egan the tradition of sharing Carnations. After much lobbying of the American government, Jarvis’ work paid off. On May 8, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a Joint Resolution designating the 2nd Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. Jarvis’ valiant struggle for mothers was accepted in more than just the United States. Today, Mother’s Day is proudly celebrated in 46 countries. Mother’s Day has become more than just a celebration of one woman in our lives. It extends to mothers-in-law, stepmothers, guardians, foster mothers, and close family friends. It has become a celebration of women who guide and nurture. In following in Anna Jarvis’ footsteps, many sons and daughters send their mothers flowers on Mother’s Day. Many others honour their mothers in other ways. In fact, consumers spend more on Mother’s Day than on some other holidays. Most families spend an average of $175 on Mom. In an American 2015 survey, 80 percent of those responding said they b ought Mom a card. 67 percent said they b ought flowers for the special woman in their lives and another 34 percent said what glitters was b etter. They spent their money on bedazzling Mom with jewellery. Other popular gifts included clothing, electronics, and personal services like spa treatments. Of course, for those who struggled with what to get mom, gift cards were also a popular item.

Imagine your home, totally organized!

Renovating Your Space Anyone who owns a home knows that it is always greener at the neighb our’s house. That is, no matter what the layout of your home, you are always looking for a change. Your kitchen is too small. You don’t have enough b edrooms. You have an unfinished b asement. Your b ackyard could use some landscaping. No matter the reason, you look at your friends’ homes with envy. Rather than be envious of what you don’t have, think about what you can do with what you do have. Either do something ab out the room or rooms that are plaguing you, or move. Renovations can b e messy, b ut some would argue that they are easier to deal with than a full move. If you have run out of space on the main level of your home, consider going down a notch… to the b asement. Unfinished basements have potential to successfully alleviate any upstairs cramping. If it has never b een touched, the possib ilities are endless. Consider creating a home theatre, a recreation room, a spare bedroom or even a playroom. Open up and express yourself. Making a multi-room main floor home into an open-concept home will add a little extra space and give the illusion that the house is much b igger than it is. Redesign the layout of your main floor b y removing non-load

b earing walls. The openness will improve the flow of your home as well as make it lighter. Taking down a wall b etween the kitchen and the living area will create a functional open concept kitchen. It also gives you the freedom to change the design of your rooms and add any more storage you may need. If you are not interested in a major project, change a few sub tleties to get a similar open concept feeling. Switch out any standard b uilder doors to French doors with glass panels. Use a lighter coloured paint to help reflect the light. Install more lighting and consider including pot lights in some rooms. The extra light will help give the illusion that the house is more open. Bring the outside in. If you are one of many homeowners whose garage is only used as a literal dumping ground, consider renovating the space. Convert the garage into another room. Be sure to insulate the area well with thermal insulation and use carpeting with a thick underpad. Rememb er that the garage was always an outside room b efore you changed it. It has the potential to be too hot or too cold. If you are on a strict b udget and cannot afford to tear down any walls or refinish any other rooms, there are visual tricks you can do that will help make your space look b igger. Too much furniture in a room can make it look crowded and small. Reduce the amount of furniture you have in a space. Remove any large furniture and replace it with smaller versions.

Growing a Cleansing Garden Anyone who has wandered through the aisles of a drug store can tell you how many products there are for weight loss and body cleansing. The shelves are filled with products promising to work miracles and rid your body of weight or toxins. They are defini ely tempting. Who wouldn’t want to be healthier? There is a way to b etter your health without using expensive drugs or ‘miracle’ products. Mother Nature has her own line of cleansing products and they do not sit on a shelf in a drug store. You can find these cleansers in a market or a grocery store. If you’d rather stick closer to home, you can even grow them yourself, weather permitting. If you are thinking ab out cleansing your system, think green and b e sure to do it the healthy way. Most importantly, consult your physician before trying any cleansing or dieting programs. Fruits and Vegetables are nature’s cleansers. They are the primary source of vitamins, minerals, iron and fib e. The average adult needs between 7 and 10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day. The majority of the population doesn’t even come close to that number daily. If you are someone who would rather grab a muffi than an apple for a snack, there are other ways to increase your fruit and veggie count and cleanse your system at the same time. The best part… you don’t even have to leave home. Growing your own fruits and vegetables is a great way to control what you are eating. Don’t use any pesticides or other chemical substances to protect your garden. Make your garden completely organic. Research

what kinds of fruits and vegetables would grow in the type of soil you have. Make sure you have the proper space available as well. Be sure to choose the best options for the space and the most nutrient choices. Check which kinds of fruits and vegetables can grow in your climate zone if you plan on making an outdoor garden, or invest in a greenhouse so you can have these goodies available year round. Some of nature’s greater cleansers include: • Bell peppers • Romaine lettuce • Broccoli • Green leaf lettuce • Caulifl wer • Tomatoes • Asparagus • Cucumbers • Onions • Carrots • Sweet potatoes • Red beets • Acorn or butternut squash • Zucchini You might consider planting a few cleansing herb s in your garden including basil, peppermint and ginger. All three are healthy additions to any diet and are known for their healing and detoxifying properties. Some of these plants thrive in indoor settings. Check with your local nursery for recommendations. For those who don’t have room for a garden, plan a visit to a local farm. When cleansing avoid consuming caffeine, alcohol and sugar and check with your doctor to make sure that you cleanse safely. If you are taking any medications, it’s very important that you talk to your physician before starting any diet or cleansing routine. May 2016 | 15

Ecological Landscaping It sounds a little funny to ask if your garden is environmentally friendly. After all, we think of any garden as being part of a healthy environment. However, gardens can be designed to be more than just a pretty plot of land. Ecological Landscapes are designs that use environmentally friendly materials to create beautiful landscaping. This type of process involves planting trees, shrubs and wildfl wers that are native to the area. By using indigenous plants, ecological landscaping helps to improve soil, water and air quality. It assists in countering glob al climate change and increasing urb an temperatures. The use of ecologically friendly materials helps protect and restore native biodiversity including birds, bees, butterflies and other wildli e. If you are thinking of changing your ecological design to make your landscape more sustainab le and environmentally friendly, consider some of the following: Indigenous Plants. Try choosing trees, fl wers and grasses that are native to the area and will help maintain the landscape. Think of the Bugs. There are insects that help maintain a healthy garden. Planting certain fl wers or bushes will attract wanted bugs and insects. There are also those insects and other crawling creatures that are unwanted visitors. Consider planting species of plants that can help

save your garden from unwanted creatures. Marigolds, for example, are believed to deter some types of insects. Unwanted insects are not the only issues in your garden. Slugs love moist areas and can suddenly appear under planters and in the shadows of gardens. Applying petroleum jelly around planters will help deter the slimy friends from returning. No Fuss Lawn. Low-maintenance lawns or groundcovers will reduce the amount of energy it takes to maintain them. You will find you do not need to mow the grass as much and you will also save on watering the lawn. Mother Nature’s Water. Using drought tolerant plants will help to reduce the need to water when Mother Nature is not doing her job. Think about adding a water feature that uses rainwater. Rain barrels or cisterns offer great ways to create alternative water supplies for your plants. Eliminate the Weeds. Keep an eye on any invasive plants that will try to take over your landscaping. Don’t use pesticides or other chemicals to control them. There are homemade combinations that will work to help rid your beautiful gardens of any unwanted plants. Consult a gardening expert or landscaper for advice on natural ways to rid your property of weeds.

Who Else Wants To Get Rid Of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Without Surgery? If You’re Over 30 And Having Wrist or Hand Pain, You Must Read What These Studies Reveal About Carpal Tunnel Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects everything in your life. It’s difficult to sleep and painful to work. ou’re unable to enjoy life to its fullest. One female patient said it like this… “I dread going to bed, I dread sweeping, doing dishes…any kind of household chores I dread – because of the pain.” Do You Have Any Of These Symptoms? • Pins and needles in the hands • Pain in the wrists • Numbness or pain in the arms • Difficulty grabbing objects • Elbow pain If you suffer from any of the above, you may have a painful progressive condition called carpal tunnel syndrome. My name is Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, owner of Crossroads Chiropractic Clinic. I’ve seen hundreds of carpal tunnel sufferers leave my office pain-f ee in the past 13 years. Many patients tell me they wished they’d found me sooner. Suffering for years was agonizing for them. I want to let you know there is real hope…

You Have An Option Other Than Drugs And Surgery…One That Really Works Scientific studies have p oven that chiropractic is effective in helping carpal tunnel patients be pain-free. One study showed that with chiropractic care, patients had “significant imp ovement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.” JMPT 1998 Another research study concluded… “Significant inc ease in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” – JMPT 1994

Also, an often-overlooked cause of carpal tunnel Don’t let carpal tunnel pain hold you back from life’s greatest moments. Discover the natural symptoms can come from nerve roots near the way to be pain-free. spine. A study in the Lancet journal showed that up to 75% of carpal tunnel patients also had a nerve problem in their neck. Dr. Susan MacKinnon, professor of surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, said the high failure rate of surgery has caused her to rethink the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. She states even after surgery problems like neck stiffness and shoulder pain persist in patients.

Could This Be Your Solution To Carpal Tunnel Pain?

Remember what it was like before you had carpal tunnel problems. When you were pain-free and could enjoy everything life had to offer. It can be that way again. Don’t neglect your problem any longer – don’t wait until it’s too late.

For 14 days only, I’m running a very special offer where you can find out if this could b your solution to carpal tunnel pain.

As you begin to see motion returning to your joints, you’re preventing and reducing chances of disability and a crippling future.

What does this offer include? Everything I normally do in my “Carpal Tunnel New Patient Evaluation”. Just call before May 15, 2016 and here’s what you’ll get…

Soon you’ll be able to live life like a normal person again, without carpal tunnel pain – able to play with your kids, enjoy time with friends, and not have to worry that your pain will hit you at just the wrong time.

• An in-depth consultation about your problem where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case.

Here’s what to do now:

• A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a pinched nerve in the neck is contributing to your pain.

Call 905-830-1146 today and we can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our offic is called Crossroads Chiropractic and you can find us at 45 Eagle St., just east of onge St. Tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Carpal Tunnel Evaluation before May 15.

• A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can map out your pain-f ee plan

Sincerely, Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, D.C.

• You’ll see everything firsthand and find o if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients.

P.S. Are you taking pain pills or considering having surgery on your carpal tunnel pain?

• A complete neuromuscular examination.

Until May 15, 2016 you can get everything I’ve listed here for only $35. The normal price for this type of evaluation including x-rays is $220, so you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer.

Feel the Improvement – and Say “Yes” to Life Again With my evaluation we’ll be able to find the caus of your carpal tunnel and then correct it. Think of how you’ll feel in just a few short weeks.

If so, perhaps you should wait and try a natural approach. Surgery is invasive, takes time to recover, and many doctors agree it should only be used as a last resort. P.P.S. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your wrists and hands hurt – and the pain just won’t go away!

Don’t neglect your hands and wrists any longer, disabling you for life. Take me up on my offer and call today 905-830-1146. May 2016 | 27

Signs of a Heart Attack We have all heard the sad cases of friends or family members who have died suddenly of a heart attack. Families and friends are left wondering why and are often heard saying they never saw it coming. An estimated 14,000 Canadians die from a heart attack each year. It is b elieved that only fi e percent of those who suffer an attack outside of a medical facility survive. What does that tell us? It is defini ely a sign that more of us need to change our lifestyles to be heart healthy. It also tells us that we need to recognize the signs of a heart attack. Heart attacks are personal. That is, the signs of a heart attack can vary from person to person. Some may have sudden and severe symptoms, while others may not. There are some similar signs and it’s important to b e ab le to recognize the signs and seek medical help immediately. Chest pain is a common trait of heart attacks, however they can vary. Some people experience severe chest pain, others have mild discomfort and some don’t have any pain at all. If you or your loved one complain of chest pain, it will likely feel as though your chest is being squeezed. You could experience pain, burning or a feeling of heaviness. Most of these symptoms involve the center or the left side of the chest. The discomfort will last for a few minutes and then go away before returning again.  Another sign of a heart attack is pain in the upper body including neck, jaw, shoulder, arms and b ack. Some heart attack sufferers have also reported pain in the ab domen ab ove the b elly b utton. Shortness of b reath, sweating and light-headedness are other symptoms that can occur when someone is suffering from an attack. Nausea is also a common sign.  Feeling very tired for no reason at all can b e another symptom. This seems to affect women more than men and it can occur for days before an attack. If you or your loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms, seek medical help immediately. Do not feel emb arrassed to consult a medical professional about the symptoms you have been experiencing. Never hesitate to ask for help. If you feel you are having a heart attack, do not drive. Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number for assistance. An ambulance is the safest way to get to a hospital if you think you are having an attack. Emergency medical personnel can monitor your health while on the way to the hospital and they can administer life-saving treatments immediately if needed.  The sooner you seek help for a possible heart attack the better. Getting medical treatment right away will not only help save your life during the heart attack, it can also help lessen the damage to your heart that can lead to heart failure.

Youth BEAT Getting Active Outdoors By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University Despite the somewhat mild winter we had this year, I am sure it is safe to say that we are all excited for warm weather and summer days to come. Now it is time to make the most of our seasonal climate and get outside! There are so many things to do outdoors in the sunny weather and so many reasons why we should. According to a recent study, approximately 23 percent of youth aged 12-17 are either overweight or obese. While this can be caused by many factors, the major ones tend to be poor diet, sedentary lifestyle and lack of enough exercise. Forty years ago the main entertainment for youth of this age was to go outside and play sports or ride bikes. Now everyone wants to watch TV or play video games. However, the attraction to technology is not all bad. The latest trend in technology seems to b e gadgets like step counters or exercise apps that will allow you to track your physical activity and set goals for yourself. So let’s comb ine this with the warm weather and get active! Everyone likes setting and reaching their goals, even the small ones can make us feel like we’ve accomplished something. These new apps are a great

way to do that. By setting yourself a distance you want to walk in a day, you will b e more motivated to travel places b y foot instead of by car or bus. You can offer to help out your parents and walk the dog more often or walk down the street to get the mail. Every bit of exercise goes towards a healthier lifestyle. You can join the local soccer team or mayb e join a running team. Having other people who rely on you is a great motivator to stay active. Of course b eing active won’t solve everything. We need to make sure we are eating healthy too. And with hot temperatures come fresh fruit and vegetab les too! While I am sure most people just groaned when they read that, there are so many ways to make vegetab les and other unappealing foods fun to eat! Not a fan of salads? Google fun dressings you can make at home (for the spice lover there is a great Thai one with chili peppers). Not crazy about smoothies? They are actually a great and delicious way to get your fruit into your diet. Exercising and eating healthy are vital for so many reasons and with the arrival of warmer weather, it is a great time to start some healthy hab its. Exercising not only improves your physical health, but has actually been proven to have an impact on your overall mental state as well, leading to a healthier and happier lifestyle. So let’s all get out there and get some exercise and vitamin D while we’re at it! May 2016 | 29
