The term pH stands for “potential of hydrogen” which is a measure of the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution. It is a measurement of acidity and alkalinity on a scale of 0 to 14 with zero being extremely acidic and fourteen being extremely alkaline and seven is neutral when there is complete balance between acid and alkaline. Our blood needs to be between 7.365 and 7.4 as it needs to be alkaline to nourish our bodies and allow for healthy new cell to form
Medical spas are a great way to improve your appearance and confidence. There are so many options, how do you know which one is right for you? You may find a medical esthetics spa (medi-spa) that promises crazy results that cannot be achieved. Treatments are also an investment so you want to ensure you’re making the right decision for you.
Stress occurs when the sympathetic nervous system overpowers the parasympathetic nervous system keeping the body in a prolonged state of “fight or flight” which revs up the body. This response is designed for short term survival and not for prolonged stress or up regulation which is directly related to many chronic diseases as well as “Covid 19” [Portzionato 2020].
We put time into looking our best. We pay attention to our hair colour, apply creams and sunscreens to our faces, stay out of the sun, eat healthy and exercise. However, we need to consider that if we only focus on our face and neglect our hands, neck and chest, we can actually look older than our years.
These days it is obvious that the strength and health of our immune system is of primary importance. When our immune system is suppressed or not functioning properly, we are less able to defend ourselves against the onslaught of infections, pathogens, viruses, bacteria, and toxins that assail us every day.
Opening in 1967, Ron Wilkin Jewellers’ Fergus location was taken over by Ron’s son Graham and his wife Amy in 2012. Together, they expanded into Elora in 2020. Don’t, however, let the addresses of these two locations fool you; they may be in small towns, but they are not “small town” in what they can provide.
If you have pets that enjoy spending time outdoors, it’s important to make sure your yard is a safe place for them to be.
It’s essential to try mattresses in person before making a purchase. Visit a mattress store and take your time laying on a few different models to get a feel for what you like and what feels most comfortable for you.
Tim says that since day one, the family business has always been about providing ‘Farm to Table’ products for the customer. “I would say that it was definitely a ‘producer to customer’ relationship that my Grandparents highly valued when they launched the family business back in the late 1940’s and now you see so much exposure given by the media to buy local, which has definitely helped to reinforce the ‘Farm to Table’ method of providing healthy, fresh and home-grown foods, at prices that people can afford.”
Bumper is the now obliviously famous blind and deaf Double Merle Australian Shepherd/Poodle Cross that has stolen the internet and local community’s hearts – much like he loves to make off with the winter hats of visitors as part of his extra efforts at understanding influxes into his environment.

Compassion is one of the easiest things to give, and it can be given freely. It’s not a question of changing your whole life, but rather appraising your actions and thinking beyond them. As we get caught in the day to day, it’s easy to forget about the world beyond our own lives. Michael and his art simply ask you to take a few moments to remember, and to be kind.
“We were looking for a house in the country with a couple of acres that was either old or dated that we could put our stamp on.” When a house they’d previously loved in Erin dropped substantially in price, they immediately went to look, put in an offer and closed the deal.
Thankfully, for Paul, the owner of Plumb Perfect, plumbing isn’t just his business, it is his passion. When I sat down with him and his wife, Terry, in their boardroom, in a renovated barn on their farm property in Caledon to discuss all things Plumb Perfect, they gave me so much to talk about that I am not sure I can fit it all in – but let’s give it a try!
Local Tile Co. is a “boutique” flooring store that offers a range of high-quality products, along with design and installation advice, he says.
While many people would find the task of remodeling their home on their own (with the help of contractors where needed) daunting, Brenda and Tom loved it. They loved hunting out the pieces that spoke to them, and digging into the challenge of transforming their home into something that worked for them. Their favourite rooms now (the kitchen, the master bath, etc.) own that title because they work for their lives so much better now, becoming beautiful and functional.
Renovations can do wonders for your property value. Of course, to get the most out of your investment, you must plan ahead. Use the following tips to create a new home design that suits your needs.
Michaela, the owner of Donato Décor, learnt early on just how much your space affects your mental wellbeing. Accessibility was a factor in her home growing up and she saw that even the smallest changes could have a large impact on a person’s quality of life and overall happiness.
After reading an article about Airik and his team in Living Spaces & Lifestyles, they decided to give him a call and immediately knew they had found the right fit. “We knew immediately that Airik was the right person to help us to design and renovate our main floor space”, said Cindy. “He was honest, had lots of great ideas, and was not afraid to make suggestions if he felt we were on the wrong track. We could not be happier with the finished product”.
“Airik showed Cindy and I some photos of decks that his company had completed in the past and we were very impressed. We had come up with our own deck design, but throughout the building process we were able to make some adjustments to the original plans, which included the addition of a 10 by 14 foot Gazebo.
Of course not all the houses are old. Some customers want a new appearance, as was the case with the owners of a traditional 1970s bungalow. That transformation was achieved by installing white oak siding which complemented the existing red entry door, Larry says.
When you think about autumn in Ontario, you almost definitely think about the stunning sights of fall leaves. Here in Wellington and Dufferin County, we are particularly lucky to have easy access to stunning escarpment vistas including Hockley Valley. As such, it’s understandable that you may be looking for new ways to add some breathtaking colour to your own yard.
There’s a patio I frequent in the summer with a group of friends, in the middle there is a large tree, and when the sun sets, they flick a switch and light up the space with beautiful lights, dancing through the branches of the tree. It’s such a simple thing, but that little touch truly transforms the space into something, well, a little magical. The best part is, it’s a little thing that can be added to any space to really amplify it. There is no space that can’t be improved with the right lighting – the question just becomes what is the right lighting?
Before you even start shopping you need to know where your baskets are going! Just like people, some plants thrive in the bright warm summer sun and others wilt.

Once upon a time, people could beat the city heat by escaping to their summer cottages. With meteoric rises in real estate prices, purchasing a second property is way out of reach for most folks.

Belize is an ideal destination for snorkeling adventures because of the extensive shallow water coast, more than 380 km of mainland shore, with hundreds of secluded remote island cays that dot the shorelines. Most are coral islands, which have emerged from the sea over time, or mangroves, which are low lying, jumbles of bare rooted, salt resistant, shrubs that survive in the fluctuating levels of shallow intertidal waters.
Hiking the mountainous landscape of Belize, in the heart of Central America, where the mysterious ancient Mayan people thrived in this deep jungle over two millennium ago.
Going by ship is an idyllic and privileged way to experience the seclusion found in these mountainous forests on the edge of Canada’s north-west. Our voyage starts from Vancouver, traveling north, behind thousands of densely wooded islands, mostly protected from the ocean, along a decisive inland channel aptly named the Inside Passage.
The promised cycle of life encourages my enthusiasm for next year’s adventures. Plans aside, I’m just going to get my sandals, grab my paddle and journey out by canoe, preparing with clothing adjustments, taking along a light jacket.
I always feel at peace here, whether I’m driving winding roads, walking meandering pathways, or strolling along a deserted beach. There’s a freedom in the marine air and it gets me thinking about our next fresh salmon dinner.
