Water Is Essential For A Strong Immune System

We’re here when you need us: Culligan Saskatoon has been treating your water needs in Saskatoon and Surrounding areas since 1947. Our business is dedicated to making your water better using the best equipment, best service, and best prices around. We’re Family Owned: Our team lives and works in the local area and we’re a family owned and operated business. In our latest news  we share information on why water is Essential For a Strong Immune System.

Keeping ourselves healthy is a goal we can all share, and fortunately, there are steps we can take to boost our chances of staying well and fighting off infections. One is as easy as staying hydrated.


“Water is vital for the functioning of all of your organs, and it’s a huge part of keeping your immune system functioning at an optimal level,” says Dr. Jyothi Tirumalasetty, assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health in the department of clinical immunology and allergy. “We are made of 60 percent water. If we are dehydrated, the whole system of immunity could start breaking down.”


Proper hydration, along with adequate nutrition and sleep, is an essential component of a healthy immune system.

Dehydration Makes Us More Susceptible to Germs

Dr. Tirumalasetty describes the immune system as “our own private bodyguard” against infections and other harmful elements. It’s comprised of multiple components that include cells, tissues, and organs. One of those organs we know well: our skin. “It’s a barrier that protects you,” she says. When our skin barrier is impaired, it can become an open door for pathogens like bacteria and viruses to enter our bodies.

The immune system includes T cells that fight infection and work with B cells, which produce proteins called antibodies that travel through the blood. “Those antibodies are going to recognize pathogens and start switching around,” she says. “When they meet a new bacteria they say, ‘Oh, I need to change and learn to recognize this.’ The next time that enters your body, that antibody is going to attack it with full force.”

Dr. Tirumalasetty describes water as “a solvent” that helps these and other elements of the immune system work together. “Water carries important components of the immune system, including nutrients, to where they need to go and carries away waste from organs that are the byproducts of our everyday metabolism as we consume food and turn it into energy,” she says. If not flushed out, that waste has the potential to become toxic and weaken the immune system.

Make Hydration a Priority

In 2004, The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine set general recommendations for daily water intake for healthy, sedentary people in temperate climates: about 2.7 litres (91 ounces) of water for women and about 3.7 litres (125 ounces) for men. The researchers found about 80 percent of people’s total water comes from drinking water and other beverages; the other 20 percent is derived from food.

However, Dr. Tirumalasetty stresses to her patients to switch to water instead of drinking more unhealthy options like juice and soda. She also says the amount of fluids individuals should drink largely depends on a number of factors. People who exercise a lot or are in hot climates likely need more than the recommended amount, for instance. Likewise, older adults with heart disease or kidney disease may need to limit their water intake if their bodies can’t regulate so much fluid.

The doctor says one universal rule is that by the time you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Plan to drink plenty of water with meals and, if necessary, find ways to trick yourself into drinking it. Add flavoring to water, she says, or heat it up and add herbal tea. You should also eat water-rich foods, which include watermelon, strawberries and spinach.

“It’s just like getting eight hours of sleep and eating properly,” Dr. Tirumalasetty says. “Getting enough water is a huge component of wellness in my mind.”

A Culligan Saskatoon Water softener is Great for Skin




























You know you have “hard water” when a build-up of lime reside or soap scum is on your bathroom fixtures and dishes, and you have to use large amounts of soap to clean dishes or wash your hair.

A Culligan water softener removes the materials that make your water hard. We offer water softeners for homes and businesses, and no home or facility is too big or too small. Our water softeners are designed to handle a variety of flow rates and remove from 25,000 to 1,250,000 grains. 


We’ll help to determine the water softener that best fits your needs so you can enjoy the following:

  • Cleaner sinks, bathtubs, fixtures and tile with much less scrubbing
  • Cleaner, brighter laundry
  • Softer, smoother skin
  • Shinier hair
  • Softer, fluffier laundry
  • Easier dish washing and household cleaning
  • Spot-free glassware
  • Reduction of scale build up in pipes and water heaters
  • Less soap, shampoo, and detergent use
  • Water heating bills reduced by up to 29%

The Trusted Saskatoon Explains Cold Laser Treatment!


How Does Cold Laser Treatment Change Your Healing Process and Promote Recovery??

When you initially have an injury, there is an inflammatory process that the body takes time to deal with – this is the red, hot, swollen time. You can’t start to exercise, stretch or even use the body when it is reacting to injury like this.  Hard for you to know where to start, right?

So here is what we do!  Start a series Laser treatment early on in the injury!  The Laser uses natural wavelengths of light to supercharge the cells (the actual injured ones!) with light energy that is easily absorbed and heals at triple the normal rate, resulting in weeks less of the overall recovery.


This treatment creates an optimal environment to begin to load the injury to restore strength, endurance and heal the area completely following the injury.  Less time inflamed means a quicker response to exercise and overall quicker recovery.


Exercise is our medicine, and our physiotherapists are masters at properly and progressively re-loading the injured area with creative, area-specific exercise to regain your previous form.  We set goals that are YOUR GOALS, and get you there again safely and strongly.


The right things at the right time – that is the key, get the cold laser treatment that can quickly guide you back to optimal health and peak performance!

Saskatoon Pilates Now Offers Core Dynamics Pilates Teacher Training Program


Kathy Bond, award winning founder of Saskatoon Pilates, shares information in their latest article about the Pilates Teacher training offered by Saskatoon Pilates,  and specifically why she has chosen to work with Core Dynamics.


Core Dynamics Pilates Teacher Training program places its focus on developing trainees to embody the Pilates method, understand human movement as well to teach the Pilates method correctly to a wide variety of clientele versus just teaching the exercises of leading classes. Core Dynamics offers a unique ‘boutique’ program based on historical Pilates, with small class sizes, individual attention, mentorship experiences and a select group of highly qualified educators and affiliates. Core Dynamics is the approach to Pilates teaching that was created by Eve Gentry and developed by Michele Larsson.


"I have now been teaching Pilates for 20 years and have worked with several “elders” in the Pilates world. Ron Fletcher, Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Lolita San Miguel and several of their protegees, plus second-generation teachers like Dianne Miller, Alan Herdman, Gillian Hessel, and Elizabeth Larkham. I did not personally work with Eve Gentry but was introduced to her work through Michele Larsson and this is the one that resonated most with me.
Eve was a professional dancer who worked with Joseph Pilates and with his guidance was able to fully recover from a radical mastectomy.
When Eve moved to Santa Fe, she started working with compromised bodies that were not able to do a full Pilates program and thus began the Fundamentals that we use as the basis for all of our clients and programs. I did try other teacher training programs, which were good, but none of them gave the same in-depth training that Core Dynamics gave."   Kathy Bond, Owner Saskatoon Pilates 

A History Of Excellence

In 2005 Saskatoon Pilates became a mentoring studio for Core Dynamics and trained 8 comprehensive teachers as an affiliate Since becoming the Canadian trainer, I have trained 4 comprehensive and 1 mat teacher, with 2 teachers ready to finalize their comprehensive certification. With the new Pilates designation of Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT) through the Pilates Method Alliance, it becomes imperative that the quality of teacher training programs has national recognition. Core Dynamics has that! The team at Saskatoon Pilates are responsible for keeping our clients safe and that we are recognized as professional movement educators.

"Pilates? That's Like Yoga, Right?" 

Author: Jo Ann Graser, PMA®-CPT, PMA Board of Directors.  


As a business owner who offers both Pilates and yoga at my studio, I run into this question on a regular basis.  My answer can be detailed or basic, depending on my audience.  Here are some comparison points about the two disciplines based on my personal experience with both. For the purposes of this discussion, I am comparing yoga to Pilates on the apparatus.  

Origins 

Yoga was developed over 5,000 years ago in India with the purpose of connecting individual consciousness to a universal consciousness creating spiritual enlightenment.  Poses or “asanas” combined with breath control and meditation improve the physical, spiritual, mental and emotional health of the practitioner.  

Joseph Pilates began development of his regimen (historically called “Corrective Exercise” and then “Contrology”) approximately 100 years ago.  The underlying theme of Pilates is a systematic and disciplined approach to physical movement through focus and clarity of the mind.  Joseph Pilates created apparatuses which could support the body in order to correct dysfunction and improve movement.  


Equipment      

Yoga utilizes mats and small props to aid or support the practitioner.  

Pilates has an extensive array of machines, or “apparatuses,” designed to assist the individual in improving alignment, strength and coordination.  

Movement

In my experience, yoga poses are typically held for extended time periods to release muscle tension. In some styles of yoga, a long series of poses are repeated sequentially, with the purpose of warming the body to allow for increased range of motion.  

Pilates movements are often guided by the apparatus, which can be configured by the teacher to provide assistance or resistance for the client. The focus in a Pilates session is often on a relatively short piece of choreography emphasizing control and precision. A movement is focused on and repeated for a few repetitions before moving onto the next exercise.  

Mind-Body Connection 

In many types of yoga, the session starts with the setting of an intention for the practice and ends with a guided meditation and relaxation or “savasana.”  Goals are to clear the mind and surrender to the movement.  

In Pilates, there is constant attention on posture, alignment and movement mechanics.  The practitioner is encouraged to focus on each movement, staying present and intentional.  The theme of controlling the body with the mind is ever-present.  

Breath 

Yoga teaches breathing in and out through the nose or a “warming breath.” This type of breathing is designed to relax the body and calm the mind. The focus in yoga is on “belly breathing.” The classes I take often use the breath as a mechanism to time each pose for example: "Hold this pose for another 4 breaths.”  

Pilates teaches breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth. This type of breath is considered “diaphragmatic” and is meant to energize and prepare the body for strong engagement. The practitioner is encouraged to “move with the tempo of the breath,” coordinating the two.  

Intention 

Yoga emphasizes the mind-body and spiritual connection, quieting the mind by focusing on mastery through introspection.  Flexibility and strength are improved through repetition of the asanas.  

Pilates follows a systematic approach, focusing on individual movements as they integrate with the whole.  The intended outcome from Pilates is improved posture and creating a strong, balanced and stable base from which to move.
