Some BIG changes at Olea Health you can’t miss!

 

To our valued Olea Health patients,

 

Some BIG changes at Olea Health you can’t miss!  After almost 9 years in the same location, we will be moving offices on DEC 1, 2016– RIGHT NEXT DOOR, into UNIT 4. Olea Health will be sharing an office space and administration with Dr. Cam Stott at Wasaga Family Chiropractic & Massage Therapy.

 

Joining me in the move is Tracy Bertrand, Registered Social Worker and Isabel Fernandes, Nutrition & Wellness Specialist.  Unfortunately, we will be saying goodbye to our RMT’s, Jenn Hogan and Amanda Lacey, as well as Carmen at Reception.  We wish them all the best in their future endeavors. If patients wish to connect with our RMT’s please call our office, we will be happy to forward their information. Our new location will have 3 qualified RMT’s, who have been with Dr. Cam for a few years.

 

Our office phone number and email will stay the same at 705.429.0015 and admin@oleahealth.com ORinfo@oleahealth.com.  We are excited to welcome Angie Rowland, who is the current administrator at Wasaga Family Chiropractic. Angie will be the new familiar face at Olea Health, assisting me at reception.

 

Our office will be closed NOV 28 until NOV 30, as we move spaces. Please be patient with calls, supplements, follow ups and emails during this time. It will take some adjusting, as we all fall back into a rhythm again.

 

Though bittersweet, as Unit 3 has been a second home for almost 9 years, I welcome this change with positivity and growth and look forward to seeing everyone in my new office.

 

In good health,

 

Dr. Monika Lukacena- Russo, BSc. ND.

Canadian children in dire need of outdoor play: report

Lauren La Rose, The Canadian Press
Published Tuesday, June 9, 2015 7:28AM EDT
Last Updated Tuesday, June 9, 2015 7:49AM EDT

With Canadian children still failing to meet key physical activity targets, a new report is stressing the benefits of outdoor play and urging adults to give kids more freedom.

The report card found that 70 per cent of three-to-four-year-olds met early years guidelines of at least 180 minutes of daily physical activity at any intensity.

Older children fared much worse. Only seven per cent of five- to 11-year-olds and five per cent of 12- to 17-year-olds met recommended guidelines of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity daily. Walking quickly, skating and biking are examples of moderate activities, while running, basketball and soccer are considered vigorous activities.

Spring is in the Air – Raw “icy Squares”

Remember those ultra sweet n’ creamy Icy Squares you used to eat? Well, these are a knock off. The biggest difference, they’re made from all natural ingredients and taste even better!

http://jenniferkeirstead.com/raw-icy-squares/

Ingredients

  • 1.5 c cocoa butter
  • 1.5 c virgin coconut oil
  • 6 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 5 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 – 4 Tbsp bee pollen
10707016_498466193628487_1538458705_n

Bee pollen is a super high-energy whole food that supplies us with nearly every single nutrient the human body needs to survive.

 

 

Preparation Method

  1. If hardened, gently melt coconut oil + cocoa butter in a sauce pan over low heat.
  2. Add all ingredients (except bee pollen) to high speed blender or food processor, and process until combined.
  3. Pour or spoon out mixture into silicone baking molds, or mini paper cups.
  4. Generously sprinkle bee pollen on top of each. Don’t worry if they sink – this looks (and tastes!) beautiful too.
  5. Pop into the freezer and let set for a few hours. Remove from molds / cups and garnish with a little extra bee pollen for garnish.

 

Enjoy!
