The Medicinal Cannabis Resource Centre Inc.

(MCRCI)

Many Canadians with serious medical conditions do not respond well to conventional medical treatment and may be helped by marijuana. In Canada possession of marijuana is legal only for qualified medical patients. Health Canada’s Access to Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) allows patients to legally possess, purchase cannabis from a Licensed Commercial Producer, and/or apply for a personal production license. In order to register under the ACMPR, patients must have support from a medical doctor or nurse practitioner.

RN

the motivation and insight behind my efforts to approach health from a more holistic perspectiveareI am a Registered Master’s Nurse with over a decade of experience specializing in health and wellness. My graduate education was dedicated to the study of nutrition and both the food and health-care industries. This research combined with my clinical practice and raising two children I believe that eliminating this uncertainty and developing confidence in making nutrition choices and health practices are achievable for all persons through holistic instruction and education. My recipes, meal plans, nutrition information, fitness practices and lifestyle approaches provide all the guidance and tools necessary to optimize these areas for individuals and families..I believe that traditional medicine does not adequately recognize the significant role that poor nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle have upon illness and disease despite being the very sustenance of our endurance, strength and overall quality of life.“People are fed by a food industry, which pays no attention to health and are treated by a health industry which pays no attention to food.” ~ Wendell BerryIn addition to a food industry guided by profit as opposed to health and a health system that undermines the contribution of proper nourishment and fitness, there is an overload of conflicting “facts” regarding diet, weight-loss and healthy lifestyle practices. This abundance of information has resulted in extreme confusion for consumers and a general lack of awareness in terms of the food they eat and the implications of eating it.

Kyla Dagenais

Spiritual Educator, Meditation & Breath, Guided Meditation with Reflexology treatment

For well over the past decade I have asked a simple question. What is this experience called life and what is my role in it? This question has drawn me to an understanding of life and its correlation on a physical, mental, and emotional level. In my studies, I have found that living a rich connected life is unique to each individual, depending on the experiences collected; some of them favourable and others maybe not so much. Through the practice of meditation and breathing I gained a deep insight into why people, myself included may hold on to destructive thought patterns, keeping us in a place of negativity. In gaining a deeper realization of myself and with the utilization of different healing techniques, I began to let life flow and let things go; bringing forth healing in all facets of my being; mind, body, and soul. In this, clarity and richness of being came into effect. I came to understand that it is our mental process that determines the quality of life we lead. It is also what gives us the ability to manifest a life with purpose and presence. Find stillness within and learn to cultivate a mind that allows for acceptance, growth and love.
