Your hosts Diana and Victor
Come and stay, let Diana look after you. Relax in
the confidence that your energy will
go into the holiday.
Diana can look after the rest.
In order to help you with diet and nutrition issues, I am
happy to prepare you the foods
you need to be comfortable
and confident during your (much needed) holiday.
Three years ago, Kate came in.
She was doing a private art workshop with Margot Miller.
She had contracted Lyme Disease and was frail. Determined to
enjoy herself, she taught me what she needed,
walked, slept, and meditated. Since she was alone, we
included her in our evening meals.
I guess you could say we
adopted her. She is vegetarian. She spent four days, and
enjoyed every meal.
Each night after dinner, she
would push back from the table and ask “Do you eat like this
She’d chuckle, as we shook our heads!
Last summer, I had two different visitors fighting Cancer.
They needed an Alkaline Diet, and were apologetic about it.
No problem. My imagination knocked their socks off!
Today, we know that people are living longer and with
much healthier lives than in the past.
This is due to the fact that there is now more made effort
to improve personal physical, emotional and spiritual
wellness. To obtain this, we are integrating traditional
western medicine practices with physical fitness, nutrition,
stress relief, and alternative medicine.
The final goal is to improve mind, body, spirit
relationships and longevity.
At Island View Bed and Breakfast, we recognize this and can
directly help people with nutrition challenges by providing
them with meals designed to aid in their healing and
sustainable processes. We also can refer our visitors to a
number of associate persons and businesses in this region
who can provide forms of alternative aid. Some of these are
listed below. We would be glad to make reservations for you
during your stay at Island View. Just have a chat with Diana
There was a time, a few years
ago, when food became the centre of my universe. I had some
health problems that I worked through by diet. I have
learned a great deal about various diets. We are all
familiar with vegetarian, low fat, and low sugar diets.
Alkaline diet, Nightshade free diet, Gluten free diet,
Specific Carbohydrate diet and the Candida diet have
become familiar territory for me. Now I enjoy using my
creativity to find ways to please the palate. Traveling is
so difficult for someone with diet issues; yet without the
stimulation of travel, it is easy to become lonely, and

Here are some activities that can be
booked that are part of our Wellness Activities
Diana has a Chi
Machine that is available that her guests may
use. Enjoy the relaxation and health benefits of
the Sun Ancon Chi Machine. Diana will set you up
in the privacy of your own room for relaxation
on the Chi Machine. The Chi Experience will
sweep your body with aerobic effervescence.
Please read about
the Chi Machine.
THE SUN ANCON CHI MACHINE
Simply lie on the floor, place your ankles on
the foot rest, relax and set the timer.
Once the swaying motion of the Chi Machine
stops, you will experience a tingling rush of
"Chi" (pronounced 'chee'), that sweeps
from your toes to your head and then slowly fade
away, leaving a deep feeling of relaxation, calm
and inner peace. This is what Chinese herbal
doctors call the "oxygen blood circulation". In
fact, the Chi is sending messages throughout the
internal body. Those who practice 'Chi Gong',
and martial arts are already aware of this
phenomenon which is our natural life force
energy, present within every living thing.
The Mid Position: Hands clasped behind
exaggerates the curves of your spine and
will impart a stronger motion to your spinal
column. Good for migraines, headaches, bone
spurs, mis-aligned spine, backache and
Comfortable, Convenient and Easy To Use,
Beginners may use the machine for 4-6
minutes, once or twice daily. Advanced users
may set timer for 15-20 minutes maximum.
Frail, sick and toxic bodies must begin at
1-3 minutes and progress slowly until the
body becomes adjusted. This machine is
subtle, gentle and relaxing, yet creates
extremely powerful natural healing.
Enjoy all these benefits - a complete
internal body massage, cellular oxygenation
via passive aerobic exercise, improved
circulation, spinal alignment, lymph
drainage, pain release,
detoxification, steady weight loss, and
When you visit Island View ask Diana

Thanks Diana on
your understanding, advice, and willingness
to provide creative, wholesome meals for
"special diets". This can be rare and know
that it is much appreciated!
Hopefully we'll come back some day, and
maybe bring our kids...
they'll love it.

Healing Arts Centre
& the Yoga Studio
|"While the yoga studio is the
mainstay of the Centre, it has been my intention to
open our doors to groups and individuals wanting to
explore and practice alternative or complementary
forms of health care. "
"In the short time that I have founded and
directed the Healing Arts Centre, I have been
overwhelmed by the positive response and feedback I
have received from our clients. I like to think of
the Centre as a kind of bridge where people
interested in complementary or alternative health
care can experience yoga and related activities in a
safe and welcoming environment. We will continue to
put forth a variety of venues within the alternative
health field that will allow the individual within
this community to educate themselves in becoming
healthier happier people."
