It's that time of year again. Kids are back in school and we are creating our fall routines. Healthy eating is back on our radar after overindulging this summer and BBQ's, parties and vacations.
You are ready to make some changes but you might not know where to start. It's also easy to become overwhelmed by all the nutrition information available.

Continuing our examination of sports medicine supplements this week we will look at minimizing recovery time, repairing muscles, and decreasing inflammation caused by exercise. L-glutamine is an amino acid sold at health food stores. Amino acids are the building blocks that make up proteins. Your muscles tear while exercising and L-glutamine speeds up recovery time by helping to repair muscle damage after working out.

Vitamins are substances your body needs to grow and develop normally. Each one has a specific job to do to keep you healthy. If you don’t get enough of certain vitamins, you can have serious health problems. These are the 13 essential vitamins: Vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins: thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyroxidine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9) and cobalamin (B12). The four fat-soluble vitamins—A, D, E, and K—are stored in the body’s fatty tissues. The other nine vitamins are water-soluble and therefore must be replenished regularly because they are removed from the body in your urine. Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver. The best way to get enough of the 13 essential vitamins is to eat a balanced diet from a variety of foods. Supplements may be necessary in those individuals where the diet does not provide enough or all 13 essential vitamins. Here is a guide to why you need each vitamin and the best food sources for each one. This week we will look at the non-B vitamins and follow up with the B’s next week.

 (who are these people?)


Here we go again! Another year has passed and all of us here at Grand Avenue Pharmacy are celebrating 26 years of serving Cochrane and area. And what  a 26 years it has been!  Cochrane  was truly a wee village by the Bow (thanks Jack) of 3500 when a decidedly younger Kimmett  family purchased Cochrane Drugs in June of 1989. In 1989 West Valley, Riverview, and Gleneagles were just off the drawing board and Fireside, Jumping Pound, Bow Ridge, Sunset and so many others were pastures filled with grazing cattle.

Back on Track's joint and muscle supports are all made of functional textiles with heat reflective properties. The textile is a synergy of ancient Chinese experience and modern scientific textile technology. During the manufacturing of polyester- or polyester fibres, the ceramic particles are fused into the fibres. When heated, the ceramic particles radiate a heat back towards the body. This reflected heat is long-wave heat radiation, which is also known as long wave infrared radiation. It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscles tension and improves performance. One important property is the injury prevention effect, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition.

Iron deficiency is the leading cause of fatigue among women between the time of menstruation and menopause. It is estimated that up to 26% of menstruating women are iron deficient.

Ionic Foot Bath Detox is an interesting and pain free way to help detoxify your entire system. It’s a foot bath where an array sends small painless currents through the body and generates positively charged ions. Also called hydrotherapy, the high concentration of the ion field attaches to the negatively charged toxins, neutralizing them. The body is then able to discard the toxins through the 2000 pores on the bottoms of your feet. The cleanse can result in less fluid retention, reduced inflammation, improved memory, greater bladder control,  more balanced PH,  stronger immune system, significant pain relief including from headaches, gout and arthritis and even foot pain.  You feel relaxed and energized. Prior to the first treatment, medical history is discussed and the required paperwork is filled out. The foot bath is prepared for you, jewelry, glasses, are removed. Sitting in a comfortable chair, you then immerse your feet into the warm foot bath. Treatment is for approximately 35 minutes while you meditate or listen to soft music then enjoy a little foot massage.
