Is Slow Food finally catching on?

Kris and Joanne Young of Ojai enjoy a celebration dinner with those who completed The 2009 Eat Local One Year project, the precursor to Locavore Lite 2010.

Locals talk about their dedication to enjoying healthy, tasty food, one bite at a time by Allison Costa

Do you ever eat while driving or scarf something down without really tasting it? Sadly, some would call this the American way. But proponents of Slow Food, the movement born in the 1980s as the ultimate touché to fast food, are calling out for people to slow down, starting at the table. Slow Food gained a local following a few years back, but for many, the name


was confusing and the concept a bit intimidating. Eventually, the local chapter fizzled. Yet the notion of paying more attention to our food, where it comes from and how it tastes is still going strong. One indicator of this shift is apparent at the farmers market. Karen Schott, from the Ventura County Farmers Markets, says that people have become more inquisitive about where their food comes from, and overall market

— Fitness, Health & Beauty — 2010

sales were up 10 percent in 2009. Local chefs Rachel Main of Main Course California and Tim Kilcoyne of the Sidecar Restaurant are fine examples of this shift in thinking in the restaurant world. Both use fresh, local, seasonal produce as the backbone of their menus. They aim to keep their foods simple and allow the inherent flavors to shine. Kilcoyne explains, “When food doesn’t spend a lot of time

on a truck, it makes a huge difference flavor wise on the plate.” He uses 100 percent of any product he buys, even turning carrot tops into soup or pesto. They can both be found shopping at the farmers market each week and have close relationships with the farmers they source from. Main explains, “I believe in getting as close as possible — both physically and emotionally — to where our food comes from.” In a similar vein, Kris and Joanne Young of Ojai are spearheading the project Locavore Continued on Page 6

You Don’t Have To Suffer With Your Low Back Pain or Leg Pain Any Longer. If You Are Suffering and Taking Handfuls of Pain Pills, Then This Could Be The Most Important Thing You’ve Ever Read… Are you tired of having to live with back pain.? You’re not alone because over 80% of the population will suffer with back pain at some point in their life. Until recently you had 3 main choices when it came to treating back pain caused by herniated discs:

“I was suffering from sciatica and the pain was affecting my life in every way possible. I was constantly in pain, always sleepy, had a constant lack of appetite, and found walking to be extremely difficult. I finally decided to give non-surgical spinal decompression on the DRX-9000 a try after finding out that it was a non-invasive treatment and that these treatments were to be administered by a trustworthy chiropractor. The DRX-9000 and Dr. Alff have literally given my back new life! Thank you!” - Royal H. Copeland, Oxnard

1. Live with the pain, which let your problem get worse. 2. Take prescription pain medication, which just covered up your symptoms and didn’t correct the cause of your problem. 3. Undergo dangerous surgery, which can cause Failed Back Surgery Syndrome. Now there is a non-invasive procedure for lumbar back pain that doesn’t use medications or surgery. It’s called Spinal Decompression Therapy and is performed using a specialized table called the DRX-9000. If you are suffering with any of the following conditions: *Back Pain *Leg Pain/Sciatica *Disc Degeneration *Facet Syndrome *Herniated Discs …then you may be a candidate for this procedure. This procedure is safe, painless and doesn’t use any medications or require surgery. It’s so gentle that most patients fall asleep during the procedure. The DRX-9000 decompression table is designed to gently and precisely distract the spine and take the pressure off your spinal nerves. The DRX-9000 table is computerized and a completely customized procedure. This is state-of-the-art, 21st century technology. Here’s what some of our satisfied patients have said about their experience with spinal decompression:

— Fitness, Health & Beauty — 2010

“I was suffering from a bulging disc that made it impossible to walk. Some days I could barely get out of bed because of the pain and depression I was feeling. I knew my condition was serious, but I didn’t want to have surgery if it wasn’t necessary. When I learned about the DRX-9000 and learned that it was capable of treating herniated and bulging discs (without surgery), I knew I had to give it a try. I’ve since finished my treatment on the DRX-9000 and I feel like a new person! Treatment really has been wonderful! The best part was that I didn’t have to have surgery! I tell everyone about how much better I am now and I think anyone suffering with bulging or herniated discs should give the DRX-9000 a try.” - Martha Arriaga, Ojai

Not everyone is a good candidate for treatment on the DRX9000. Use the coupon below to determine if you qualify. Call the Ventura Spinal Care Center at 648-7987. FREE 19-POINT DRX-9000 QUALIFYING ASSESSMENT

Thermolysis leads the way in the latest technology for permanent hair removal

by Cheryl Conway Technology + experience = expertise


reedom from unwanted hair is a challenge many people struggle with. Fortunately, innovative technology has provided fast, sophisticated solutions to hair removal, but technology alone will not solve the problem. A well-educated and experienced technician is just as important as the equipment, to ensure effectiveness and safety for the patient. The most precise, reliable method on the market today for permanent hair removal is an improved form of electrolysis known as thermolysis. Thermolysis is not new technology, but many people have never even heard of it, or do not know that it is completely safe, effective and approved by the FDA for permanence. State of the art, computerized epilators have shown great strides in the progress of permanent hair removal, yet many technicians are still practicing conventional electrolysis with outdated equipment. Consumers are confused, and want to know the differences and advantages of thermolysis over electrolysis and laser hair removal.

Thermolysis versus electrolysis If necessity is the mother of invention, then electrolysis, in its day, did accommodate the needs of the past. But due to advances in science and technology, it has been determined that thermolysis best meets the standards of today. Mechanical and safety requirements, along with Continued on Page 16

Thermolysis uses alternating current (AC) and a flexible, insulated probe that cauterizes only the root portion of the hair. When a small pulse of current touches the moisture in the base of the hair follicle, it makes heat (thermo) at milliseconds (1,000th of a second).
