About OK In Health

The CENTRE for INTEGRATIVE HEALTH and HEALING EST. 2004

Your support is greatly appreciated for this
integrative health & healing community website.

Our members are like-minded people of all backgrounds, lay and professional, who support an interest in a natural approach to health care, from all over British Columbia and across Canada and the world, that support this OK In Health network.  Established in 2004, we provide workshops, health care practitioner listings, articles, health tips, recipes, and more, for our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.  One of our main focuses is Health and Healing Workshops. We also provide specialty coverage for natural health related issues such as maternity, women’s and families, our environment, natural animal care, practice & support groups, health stores & natural businesses, local health events, and workshops.

           

The reason why we started this website in 2004 was because it is so much better to hear about a workshop or course before, rather than after the event. Together with strong community support, we developed this website to help promote local practitioners, workshops and events plus provide informative, educational information for our 5,000+ readers. One of the best advantages of the OK In Health website is that we can publish last minute events or events months ahead of time, all for the same low cost.
We have OK In Health representatives in Okanagan, Northern BC, Vancouver & Island, Kootenays, Alberta, across Canada, and Western USA. In 2006 we launched OK In Health In Ireland too. 

 


2008 SOSHF Health & Fitness Educator Award

We also provide a free monthly newsletter, which reaches over 5,000+ homes. If you would like you receive a monthly OK In Health eMagazine with information on upcoming workshops and events, articles, featured local practitioners and monthly free give away prizes, then please Sign up.

OK In Health Presents
Hosting Special Events and Media Sponsors for events

Maria and OK In Health host some of the world's most renown teachers, each year. In 2005, 2006, and 2007, Maria brought Chris Stormer from South Africa to the Okanagan, in BC. In 2008, Maria invited Dr. Martine Faure Alderson from England to come to teach her Cranial Sacral Reflexology course, which was a great success. Due to this course filling up so fast, we plan to bring Dr. Faure Alderson over from England again.  In 2010, we were very involved with bringing Dr. Deepak Chopra to the Okanagan, followed by Wayne Dyer and Gregg Braden. We have also worked with Hay House, Doreen Virtues and other events.

Celtic Healings Intuitive Readings with Maria O'Farrell Carr


Recipe
Dandelion and Tomato Salad
Category: Salads
Description: Pity the American dandelion. In countries across the world the dandelion is considered a delicious vegetable and is consumed with affection–and dandelion has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. In America, it is most often cursed as an irksome weed and is pulled, poisoned and otherwise generally maligned.

Dandelion gets its name from the French "dents de lion", or lion's teeth, which describes the jagged edges on the leaves. The "lion" part might be there due to the fact that the fluffy yellow flowers of the plant resemble a lion's furry mane.
Dandelion greens are loaded with beta carotene, the carotenoid phytonutrient that is a precursor to vitamin A.
Dandelions help to support digestion.
Known to reduce swelling and inflammation.
Traditionally used as an anti-viral, treatment for gout, eczema, jaundice, and edema.
Function as both mild laxative and gentle diuretic properties to purify the blood and cleanse the system.

Dandelion greens have a reputation for bitterness, but they are nicely so, and the bitterness is balanced by a lovely spiciness similar to arugula. Mature greens can get pretty bitter, but this can be tamed by blanching them.
The time to harvest dandelion greens is early in the spring, when they are their youngest and before they flower. They can be harvested again in late fall as they loose some of their bitterness after a frost. Look for young dandelions growing in rich, moist soil, making sure not to forage close to roads. They taste fresh and easy to add to any salad!
This recipes is so simple to make.
