Boating Safety

For boaters, spending the warmer months cruising across an open body of water is their definition of heaven. It’s easy to understand why so many take to the water to get away from it all. Ontario offers boaters an abundance of opportunities with more than 250,000 lakes. If you are new to the boating world and are thinking about jumping on board for the summer, there are a few things you should know. Do you have a licence? If you don’t, it could cost you $250 in fines. If you want to power any boat in Canada, you must have a Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC). That is, you must be licenced. Transport Canada offers a list of accredited course providers that provide education on boat safety. Courses can be done online or in a classroom and can be completed in as little as 3 to 4 hours. You also do not have to finish the course in one sitting. You can do this at your own pace, but you need to complete the course within one year from registration. The courses are designed for experienced as well as inexperienced boaters. After you have completed the training you will receive your PCOC. This card is valid in Ontario as well as our other provinces. Now that you are licenced you are ready to take on the waves. Here are a few tips to get you started. Continued on Page 6...

Can't Find A Solution To Your Pain And Injuries?

Check the local weather forecast. It’s always a good idea to check the weather forecast before heading out. If you are taking on a much bigger body of water, look for a marine forecast. You will be able to find out the forecast for the winds and the waves.

Come Give Osteopathic Manual Therapy A Try At Newmarket Osteopathy!

Before your adventure into unknown territory, take a look at marine maps of the area and look for potential hazards in the water including shallow areas and rocks.

Osteopathic Manual Therapy is a non-invasive and gentle form of therapy that restores health and balance to the body. By adjusting the body's framework, improving circulation, nerve conduction, and

If you are heading out for a long trip, make an itinerary and chart a course. Leave the details with someone who can alert authorities if you do not arrive at your destination in a reasonable amount of time.

Treatment the body will gain health, vitality, decrease pain, and promote self-healing to help conquer future injuries.

Don’t forget to check the overall structure of the boat. Inspect any motors and sails, making sure that any connections are tight. Don’t overlook any minor repairs before your trip. Something that may have seemed small can develop into something bigger while you are out on the water.

Trendy Backyard Designs Take a look at your backyard. Does it move you? Do you feel like grabbing a cold drink and spending time lounging in the garden? Is it inviting for guests who drop in unannounced? If your backyard is not what you think it should be, grow a new one. Gardens can make or break a backyard, but not all plots have been created equal. Just because you have a few beds of geraniums does not mean that your garden is all it could be.  Let your garden go to the birds… literally. If you enjoy the sweet sounds of the summer birds, create a garden space that will attract them. Birds like high places to sit and sweet things to eat. There are a number of trees and shrubs that produce berries. Some develop early in the season and others continue through to fall. The American cranberry bush holds onto its berries well into the winter. It is a great way to attract birds year round. Planting dogwood, hawthorn, and crabapple trees are also beautiful ways to welcome winged friends. For those looking for a daily glimpse of nature without the mess created by birds, planting a garden that attracts insects may be a wonderful alternative. Butterflies are beautiful visitors to any garden. These summer insect beauties are attracted to colour. When creating a butterfly-friendly garden, make sure to pick a sunny spot. Choose annual flowers that provide non-stop colour. Zinnias, Marigolds and Mealycup Sage are great choices. Include

Interlocking & Paving

a water feature in the area that contains sand and is surrounded by stones. Butterflies like to sip the minerals from sand and they enjoy sitting on warm stones. Before a butterfly can spread its wings, it must first explore the world as a caterpillar. Be sure to include some ‘munchable’ plants hidden in the butterfly garden for the hungry caterpillars. There are those of you that will say they would love a big beautiful garden, but they don’t have the time to maintain it. Gardens that are low-maintenance and sustainable are ideal for those without a green thumb or extra time. It doesn’t have to be a boring garden. Edible gardens are beautiful and practical. There are many fruits and vegetables that look good and taste better. Add in some attractive herbs like basil, oregano and rosemary to spice up the foliage.   Relaxing is what most people think of when describing a backyard. Why not create a meditation area in your garden. Designate an open grassy area that is surrounded by serene foliage. You will want to make an outdoor room. Add a beautiful wooden bench or another type of seating. Flowering vines and trellises can help create an outdoor space that feels more secluded and better for meditation. Pergolas are also a perfect way to cover the area. A water feature is a lovely addition to any meditation place. The sound of running water can help create a calming atmosphere.

Kid-Friendly Spaces

How do you make your once lovely decorated living room into a kid-friendly space that is safe? Get down on your knees and start looking around.

Once your child learns how to crawl, a whole new world opens for him or her. They notice things they hadn’t before and the best part is, they can travel to them. Anything stored at floor level will become fair game for little hands. Furniture with drawers and doors will need to be secured. Purchase furniture anchors or tethers to secure them to your walls. Any small items stored in these drawers and cupboards will be at the perfect level for your toddler to investigate. Those same little fingers that have gone through the cupboards somehow find the electrical sockets in the walls. Cover any exposed sockets with childproof covers. Make sure they are secure and cannot be pried loose.

Create a diversion tactic. A kid-safe bin of age appropriate toys will help take the youngsters’ mind off the other choices in the room – at least for a while. Be sure to choose bins that do not have hinges or are likely to tip easily. Leave lids off the bins during playtime. Furniture itself can become a danger to little walkers. Chairs, small tables and other lighter pieces of furniture can tip over easily if pulled or pushed. Move any lightweight furniture out of the play space during playtime.

If your playroom has hard flooring, consider adding a throw rug to the area. Opt for a carpet that has a non-slip backing to keep the rug from becoming a danger. If you are creating a permanent play space there are rugs that have playful designs including road scenes for the young car enthusiasts. Window treatments may be forgotten in the childproofing plan. Long curtains can be a danger to small children. They are great ropes to help little people stand. Curtain rods were not meant to take a sudden pull and they could come crashing down on an unsuspecting little head. Long curtains also pose a strangulation risk.   Blinds can be especially dangerous to young children. There have been cases where a young child has been strangled by a loose blind cord. Tie up any cords above the reach of young children. Leave the blind open when the play area is in use. If you are concerned about the safety of your blinds, buy new.

This Month IN HISTORY FAMOUS AUGUST BIRTHDAYS If you are an August baby, then you are likely a Leo (born between July 23 – August 22) or a Virgo (born between August 23 – September 22). Leos possess a positive outlook on life. They are great achievers that set examples for others. Leos are loyal friends and lovers. They are brave and fearless and are natural leaders. Does this sound like you? If so, you are not alone. There are many powerful people that share the Leo sign. James Francis Cameron was born in Kapuskasing, Ontario on August 16, 1954. This Leo has definitely made a name for himself as a great achiever in the movie industry. He is a director, producer, screenwriter and editor. He is best known for his Oscar winning movie Titanic. Cameron won Best Director and the film won Best Picture in 1998. Titanic took home 11 Oscars in all. Cameron has worked on several noteworthy films in his career and created another box-office smash in 2009. Avatar was a fan favourite. Cameron was nominated for Best Director and the movie was a Nominee for Best Picture. In the same province and a few years earlier, another leader was born. Robert Keith Rae, more commonly known as Bob, was born on August 2, 1948. This Leo made a name for himself in the political world. A prominent lawyer and community activist, Rae was elected

into federal politics in 1978. He served from 1978-1982 before turning to provincial politics. Rae was an MPP from 1982 until 1986. He was Premier of Ontario from 1990-1995. Things changed for Rae in 1995 when the NDP was defeated in Ontario. Rae resigned as leader and MPP in 1996 and joined the law firm of Goodmans LLP. After becoming disenchanted with the NDP party, Rae joined the Liberal Party and ran for its leadership in 2006. While Leos dominate most of the month of August, there is still another sign that cannot be ignored: Virgo. Virgos are loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking and practical. They pay attention to small details and they leave nothing to chance. They can be described as perfectionists. It takes a lot of commitment and hard work to make it in the entertainment world. As a Virgo, Shania Twain has definitely left nothing to chance. Twain was born August 28, 1965 in Windsor, Ontario. She started writing music when she was only 10 years old. Twain stormed onto the charts in 1995 with her 2nd album The Woman in Me. Her 1997 album Come On Over became the bestselling album of all time by a female musician in any genre, and the best-selling country album of all time. It sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Twain won 5 Grammy awards before stepping out of the spotlight in 2008. She returned to the entertainment world in 2012 to perform a series of shows in Las Vegas. www.bornglorious.com/birthday/?ct=/m/0d060g&pd=08 www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/robert-keith-bob-rae/ www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/zodiac-signs/virgo/ www.biography.com/people/shania-twain-9542122

Senior BEAT THE BENEFITS OF SHUFFLEBOARD

Shuffleboard has been a popular sport for centuries. It started in 15th Century England when it was a crowd favourite in pubs and palaces. It was first introduced in North America in Florida in 1913. It was so popular that it spread throughout the United States, mostly in retirement communities. Each community devised its own set of rules. It wasn’t until the 1930s when a National Shuffleboard Association was formed. The organization created a set of standards for the size of the courts. The group also created a set of rules to be followed by all who play. For those who haven’t had the pleasure, Shuffleboard involves shoving a puck (known as a weight) by hand or with a stick across a table, floor or hard surface into a marked area. Players win once they are the first to accumulate 15 points. Each player takes turns sliding each of four weights across the board. The objective is to slide the weight into the highest scoring area. Points are awarded to the player that has weights the furthest down the board. The strategy comes when players attempt to knock opponents’ weights off the board.     Shuffleboard does not have a short season. It can be played any time of the year on indoor and outdoor courts. This makes it an ideal sport for those looking to be involved in something for a full year. Besides the long season, the game has many other benefits. Moving around the board and shoving weights helps increase heart rate.

Shuffleboard helps improve reflexes while working the muscles. It takes control of the muscles to be able to accurately slide the weight down the board. Studies have shown that any amount of exercise can help relieve stress and its effects on the body. Shuffleboard is another example of a game that provides fun and stress relief. It also works out more than just the body. Shuffleboard is a game of strategy that provides mental stimulation. Likely the best part of Shuffleboard is the social aspect. It is a great way to spend a few hours with friends and family and to make new friends. Some community centres offer Shuffleboard leagues that welcome all those who wish to play. There are also boards available to those who have their own groups.

Most people may think of the large wooden structures in the town park when they picture a gazebo. Actually, there are many different kinds of gazebos that can fit into any outdoor space. It really comes down to size and preference and the rules and regulations of the town or city. Check with the municipality to make sure there are no regulations for backyard structures before putting one up. Wooden gazebos add a certain character to any yard. They are a permanent structure that can handle the elements and can be treated to be decay and insect resistant. Cedar is a perfect wood to use for a backyard structure. Wooden gazebos can be any shape such as oval, circular, rectangular, square and even octagonal. They can also

be screened in to provide extra protection against seasonal insects. Flower boxes, benches and decorative trim can be easily added to dress up any wooden gazebo. They can be stained or painted to match your décor’s colour scheme. Metal gazebos can be much like their wooden cousins. They are permanent structures that can be any shape or size. They can also be a little different than wooden structures. Some are more open and consist of a roof and pillars. Netting or curtains can be attached to the structure to provide shade, privacy and protection from bugs. Some structures have tinted glass ceilings that allow the light in without exposing anyone to the harsh UV rays of the sun. Other styles can be enclosed to create outdoor rooms. They are great protection around an outdoor sunroom, hot tub and even a barbeque area. Most metal gazebos have been treated with a rust resistant compound to make them last longer in the elements. Vinyl gazebos can look a lot like metal structures. They can be permanent or temporary depending upon the style and size. Some vinyl structures are made to look like wood. They are constructed with a composite that looks just like wood but lasts longer. Vinyl structures require little maintenance and still provide all of the luxuries of a wooden or metal gazebo. They can be open like the roof and pillar metal structures and they can also be enclosed and offer great protection for a hot tub, or an outdoor sitting area. For those looking for something a little more portable, there are gazebos on the market that have metal frames and canvas covers that can be erected anywhere and removed just as easily.

If you’re suffering from nerve problems in the arms and legs, you must read about a clinical study that showed..

How 85% Of Patients Eliminated Numbness, Tingling, or Sharp Pains Numbness, tingling, and pain is an extremely annoying problem.

that has built up on the nerve. This allows the nerve to heal and the symptoms to go away.

It may come and go...interrupt your sleep...and even makes your arms or legs feel weak at times. Maybe you’ve even been to other doctors and they claim all the tests indicate you should feel fine.

For example, numerous studies have proven chiropractic’s effectiveness in helping nerve conditions.

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE,

READ THIS: More than 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a problem caused by damage to the nerves that supply your arms and legs. This painful condition interferes with your body’s ability to transmit messages to your muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. If ignored or mistreated, neuropathy can lead to irreversible health conditions. Why not get help by those trained to correct the major cause of peripheral neuropathy. Read the full facts on this page. More Pills Are Not The Solution A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, antiseizure medications, and anti-depressants -- all of which have serious side effects. The Likely Cause Of Your Problem My name is Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, clinic director at Crossroads Chiropractic. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than 14 years. Often neuropathy is caused by a degenerating spine pressing on the nerve roots. This can happen in any of the vertebral joints from the neck all the way down to the tail bone. The good news is that chiropractic treatments have proven effective in helping to remove the pressure on the nerves. By using gentle techniques, I’m able to release the pressure

Patients showed an 85.5% resolution of the nerve symptoms after only 9 chiropractic treatments. - Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2008 With chiropractic care, patients had “significant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.” – JMPT 1998 “Significant increase in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” – JMPT 1994 What these studies mean is that you could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating nerve problems. Could This Be Your Solution? It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic will be your neuropathy solution. For 14 days only, $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $220 for! What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive: • An in-depth consultation about your health and wellbeing where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. • A complete neuromuscular examination. • A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms… (NOTE: These would normally cost you at least $100). • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain-free. • I’ll answer your most probing questions about nerve problems and how chiropractic can help. Until August 17, 2017 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. Call 905-830-1146 now. We can get you scheduled for your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening.

Don’t Let Numbness, Tingling and Pain Hold You Back from Enjoying Life.

Our office is located just a few doors down from Yonge on Eagle St, just a few minutes from you. When you call, tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Nerve Evaluation so she can get you on the schedule and make sure you receive proper credit for this special offer.

Sincerely,

Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, D.C. P.S. Remember, you only have until August 17 to reserve an appointment at this significant discount. Why suffer for years in misery? That’s no way to live, not when there could be an easy solution to your problem. P.P.S. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your arms or legs hurt – and the pain just won’t go away!

ELEMENTAL CORE HEALING Affordable / Professional / Client Centered Healthcare

By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University It is no secret that the level of physical activity in youth aged ten to sixteen has been a concern in recent years. Children are more inclined to watch TV, play video games, or scroll on the Internet than be outside and being active. Not to add to the worries of obesity, heart problems, and so on, but recent studies have now shown that a lack of physical activity can directly affect bone health. After looking at a group of boys aged twelve to sixteen, and girls aged ten to fourteen, studies have shown that only about forty-three percent of boys and only nine percent of girls are meeting the recommended sixty minutes of physical activity a day. Approximately thirty six percent of the adult skeleton is developed during adolescence when growth spurts typically happen, and physical activity is critical for developing bone strength and density. A lack of bone strength and density can increase chances of osteoporosis among other ailments when the children reach adulthood. Therefore the couch potato lifestyle many youth have adopted simply will not do. Thankfully there are many ways to encourage physical activity in youth that can solve this problem. First off, those apps on their phones that have them sitting inside staring at that tiny screen can be useful as there are so many apps that encourage physical activity. Combining children’s love of electronics into their activity could definitely increase the odds of them becoming and staying active. This could include step counting apps that encourage children to reach their step goals. Or perhaps racing apps that encourage them and their friends to run. Even indoor games like motion video games that force them to move rather than just sit still could have plenty of impact. I am sure we all remember a certain app last year that involved some cartoon creatures that had clusters of youth and young adults being very active outside trying to catch all of the creatures in the digital world. The best thing to do is find a child’s interest, and turn it into a physical activity. Do they like art? Give them some chalk and let them go crazy on the driveway. Do they like animals? Go on a hike and look for animals in the forest. There are so many ways to encourage physical activity in young children. And even small bursts of physical activity, or an hour a day of physical activity, whatever it may be, will ensure healthy bone development in children, as well as all other benefits that come with exercise and physical activity. Our bones respond to everything from the day we are born, and the investment to a healthy lifestyle needs to be present from the beginning. And if all else fails, just cut the power to the house and leave them with no choice but to be active.
