Volunteering for your community

Become a volunteer by organizing cleanups or by taking a walk and picking up litter. Encourage by example by getting everyone you know involved with keeping your town clean. Teach your children to take care of the environment. Buy reusable products and of course reduce, reuse and recycle all that you can. By taking care of the environment you'll be taking care of your health as well!


To relieve sore, tight, tense or painful muscles

Soak in a hot bath with a 2 kg bag of Epsom salts from a minimum of twenty minutes. This releases the build up of lactic acid and helps the muscles relax and repair. During your bath drink water and place a cold towel around your neck.


To reduce swelling, bruising or bleeding

Apply an ice pack with compression and elevation.
