3)    Try this Pose

WARRIOR 1 (Virabhadrasana)


Postures that help tone the abdominal organs will help also aid digestion and menstrual orders.  This Warrior Pose also helps to limber and strengthen the entire body.  Tension is released in the neck, shoulders and back.  Stamina, endurance, balance and concentration are all improved.

1.    Stand erect with your feet as far apart as comfortable and parallel with each other, hands on hips.
2.    Inhaling drop your tailbone down toward the floor and let the crown of your head float upward.
3.    Exhaling, turn your left toes inward slightly and your right foot 90 degrees to the right, along with your hips.
4.    Bend your right knee directly over top of your heel forming a right angle with the shin and thigh.
5.    With your left leg straight and left foot firmly grounded, inhale reaching your arms up over your head.
6.    With arms straight at either side of your head, palms facing each other, gaze straight ahead.
7.    Hold this posture and breathe.
8.    Inhale. Exhaling, release the pose.
9.    Repeat bending the opposite knee.

This posture creates a mild backbend.  So once completed, either let the torso hang forward with your knees bent, legs together, or lay down on your back and bring your knees to your chest to release the grip of the back muscles.

Please note: You do this posture at your own risk.

8)    Recipe

Spicy Chickpea Soup (6 - 8 servings)
published in Good Food by Dr. Gabe Mirkin and Diana Mirkin

6 cups bouillon
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 red potatoes, cut in 1/2 cubes
1 teaspoon oregano
1-3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced, to taste
1 cup canned tomatoes, undrained, broken up
1 16-ounce can chickpeas, undrained
1 cup cooked kamut or other whole grain of your choice
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley or cilantro
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients except the chickpeas, kamut and parsley in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes and carrot are tender. Whirl a hand blender in the soup for a few seconds to thicken it slightly, but leave lots of chunks. Stir in the chickpeas, kamut and parsley and cook about 10 minutes.

9)    Lunch & Learn at Work About Nutritional Cleansing

Some people are interested in getting the information about cleansing out to co-workers.  And some people are even doing a Corporate Challenge Cleanse.  What an awesome idea! 

In February's newsletter we talked about cleansing with a friend.  If you haven't done that yet, maybe this is more your style.  Here's what we can do to help.

Talk with your Human Resources person or someone who can set up having a Lunch & Learn Talk at your office.  That person may even be yourself.  Either I or one of my associates will come in to your office on a day of your choosing and discuss the topic of Nutritional Cleansing.  We will talk about the following things ~

~ weight challenges
~ health issues
~ getting a better sleep
~ reducing stress levels
~ increasing energy levels
~ the difference between fasting, dieting, and nutritional cleansing
~ and more

These talks are FREE.  Get the FACTS and hear some SOLUTIONS.  Call me for more information, or to set yourself on the road to better health.

Not sure whether you need to cleanse?
Watch this new 4 minute broadcast at done by CTV with our very own politicians.


Q:    Will these products give me diarrhea?
A:    No.  They will clean the impurities from your colon but it is unlikely you will find a difference in your frequency or consistency in your bowel movements. 

Q:    What are the ingredients?
A:    You can find the whole list of products and ingredients at  Click on the CLEANSE or NUTRITION links.  Then click on the products you are interested in.  At the bottom of each page is a link for all the ingredients.

Q:    What if I'm on medications?
A:    It's suggested that you let your healthcare provider know that you are doing a cleanse and ask that they monitor you.

Q:    What's the cost?
A:    It depends on what you purchase.  You can pay retail prices or purchase a membership for as little as $36 which allows you to purchase at wholesale prices.  All prices are in US dollars.

Q:    How is the product shipped?
A:    The products are shipped by courier, usually UPS.

Q:    Because it is coming from the US, is there duty I have to pay for it to come across the border?
A:    No.

Q:    How long does it take to get my products?
A:    It usually takes about 3-5 working days to receive the products.

Q:    How do I place an order?
A:    You can place your first order directly with me by calling 604-421-9872 or emailing me at  Then you will be set up with a wholesale account so you can purchase your own products thereafter.

10)    What is All the Fuss About Nutritional Cleansing

If you're still wondering why I, and so many others, are so excited about this, then I invite you to come to find out on Saturday March 3 at 10:30am.  If you want to get healthier, if you know others who want to get healthier, or if you or someone you know wish to lose excess pounds, then come and listen.  If you want to supplement or replace your current income, come and listen.  There is no obligation to purchase a thing, but you'll sure want to hear what we have to say!  Email me now at for more information and the location.

11)    Bone Density Clinic

If you haven't signed up for our Bone Density Clinic to be offered in North Burnaby at our Revs Health Club location sometime during the Spring of 2007 yet, make sure you do so quickly.  The date is still to be determined but it will be held on either a Saturday or Sunday.  Watch your email box for an update.

Using ultrasound on the radius of the forearm, the procedure is quick (about 10 minutes), painless (no needles) and very accurate. The results are immediate, easily understood, and you can take them directly to your doctor.  Because this test is by ultrasound, it is even safe during pregnancy.  The cost will be under $40 (gst extra).

The company we will be using is OsteoGuard.  They use the very latest equipment and their testers are highly trained experienced professionals.  You can check them online at

If you are interested in participating, please make sure you contact me early at  My list is already growing.

12)    Quips and Quotes

When the shoe fits, the foot is forgotten, when the belt fits, the belly is forgotten, when the heart is right, 'for' and 'against' are forgotten. No drives, no compulsions, no needs, no attractions: then your affairs are under control. You are a free man. ~Chuang Tzu
