Life can be Taxing

It is a busy world we live. We break ourselves trying to navigate through the morning grind and then push each other even further after work to make sure the kids get to soccer practice, and all the chores around the house are done. Some days are easier then others, like when the monotony is broken up by a variant activity that allows a person to forget that their lives are comparable to a hamster running on a wheel going no where. That’s why its important to not make your life so tedious. If tomorrow appears to just be a repeat of the previous day, maybe that’s the day you should do something else? Something that takes away the stress and doesn’t tax you to the point of exhaustion.

No one understands what it means to provide your life with variation, more then Myles Haverluck. Being an active father of 3 children, 4 grandchildren and Owner of a Pharmaceutical business, Myles has a clear understanding on what it means to be healthy.  In a professional and spiritual sense, Myles has come to realize that everyone needs a break from reality, and the best way to do that it is through activity. Attending the University of Manitoba, Myles played Intermural football as well as hockey and basketball. He would graduate in 1974 and move to Swan River with his wife Bonnie, where he would have 3 kids and begin his career in pharmacy. In 1979 the family moved to Dauphin and started the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy. After having his three daughters Kristen, Brenna and Sara. Myles and Bonnie quickly realized the amount of stress and lack of physical activity that was taking place in their lives. It wasn’t healthy that they had stopped riding their bikes or going on long walks. They knew that this taxing process of raising kids needed to be met with the same level of activity. Not just for Myles and Bonnie but for the sake and health of their entire family.

From a young age Myles introduced his daughters to a number of sports. Soccer and basketball being the favorite amongst the girls, Myles helped to develop their skills and practiced with them as often as he could. Bonnie took the girls on bike rides and often enjoyed long walks through out the neighbour hood. To this day, Myles still likes taking his bike out on long rides all around the Dauphin area.

To escape from their stressful lives, Myles and Bonnie purchased a cottage out in Dauphin Lake where they would take family vacations. The area is beautiful and quiet so the Haverluck family uses this time to be active. Myles and his daughter Sara enjoy fishing and have shared many early morning trips out on the lake, looking for Walleye, Jumbo Perch, Northern Pike and Carp. Another good fishing spot would be at the cabin that the family rents out in Clear Lake. The small town offers nature hikes, a small beach for swimming and bike routes for all level of riders. What Myles and his daughters have enjoyed most about their time in Clear Lake are the rounds played on the local golf course. Brenna and Kristen especially like putting on the greens and trying to get out of sand traps that Myles often lands in.  Myles Haverluck likes spending time on the golf course so much that he has recently taken trips to Scotland and Ireland to play on the legendary greens. The Royal Dornoch Golf Club in Scotland being the favorite amongst his group, with The Royal County Down in Ireland being a close second. When they weren’t on the links they were visiting local restaurants where Myles and his golf buddies got to enjoy some delicious, authentic Irish beer (the part of the trip that Myles misses most).

At the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy, Myles advocates a healthy routine of moderate exercise to all of the people that walk through his door. After becoming a Certified Orthotic Fitter in 1983, Myles dedicated his time to try and understand the human body on a more physical level.  So when people want to maintain an active lifestyle while living with physical limitations, Myles can provide the right information and advice to make sure that someone can do what they want to do, safely.

Biography

When I graduated from DRCSS high school in my home town of Dauphin, I knew very little about who I was, and what I wanted to do with my life. The only things I was sure of was that I loved playing sports and I wanted to help people. I did well in school and found the inner workings of the human body fascinating. Before I made my next move towards securing a career, I needed to lock down and marry the love of my life, Bonnie. In 1969 we were married in our home town of Dauphin in the Anglican Church in front of all our friends and family.  By this time most of my friends had begun University, while I was still unsure about what it is I wanted to do there, I knew that enrolling was an important first step in figuring that out.

I attended the University of Manitoba and soon after my first year I decided to pursue my bachelors in Science in Pharmacy. I enjoyed my studies and was very active on campus. I played a number of sports including hockey, basketball and my favorite, intermural football in which I participated in for 4 of my 5 years. I wish I could say I was an integral player to my team but then I would just be pandering to myself. No matter what the sport was, I gave it my all and contributed as a leader and team player. In my 4th year I was class president of the pharmacy faculty, I took what I had learned about leading on the field and applied it to the classroom. After 5 long years I finally graduated with my Bachelors in Science, making the Deans Honor Role in 1974.

Soon after University Bonnie and I wanted to start a family and knew that I needed to secure our financial future. In 1979 I took the position with the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy and began my work. There were many more things I needed to learn and wanted to improve upon in my career. Some of the extra training that I took included becoming a Certified Orthotic Fitter in 1983 as well as a Certified Asthma Educator in 1999. To this day I have a special interest in custom compounding and in 2001 I headed to Houston Texas to improve my skills at the Professional Compounding Centers of America, making the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy a lifetime member of the PCCA.

I have been with the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy for many years now and every day I seem to learn something new about my practice and the people that come in every day. There are always ways to improve yourself and I am on a journey to do so. Since deciding to stay in Dauphin, Bonnie and I have started a lovely family of three daughters named Kristen, Brenna, and Sara. All of which were born in Swan River We now also have four Grandchildren . My family and I have supported the Dauphin community our entire lives by contributing to sports clubs, charities and various other social activities. I myself have joined The Kinsmen Club which helps to raise money for sports teams, kids parks, senior citizens buildings or whatever becomes the communities greatest need.

I maintain an active lifestyle and always keep myself feeling healthy, a way of living I try to instill in my family and patients.  Along with my various physical activities, I also take multivitamins including omega 3,and lots of B Vitamins I recommend taking these vitamins because it is important that a body receive these nutrients and in todays busy world, sometimes it is hard for your body to get what it needs. But don’t expect these magic pills to work on their own. A proper diet and exercise is important if you want to live a long and healthy life.

Currently I work, live and operate in Dauphin. I try not to get too caught up in my work and spend as much time with my family as possible. We love going to Clear Lake during our holidays where we play golf, fish and ride bikes all over the park.  Lake Dauphin is where we go throughout the summer to relax and get away from the stress of the real world. A healthy mind and body are important to sustain who you are as a person.  

Health Trends/Vitamins

Vitamins

One thing that Myles and The Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy like to instill in their patients is the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and one of the ways to achieve this is by taking multivitamins. Along with eating a good diet and exercising on a daily basis, multivitamins can help your body produce the nutrients that the average person might not be able to get in an average day. Now with current farming practices it is more than possible that people aren’t receiving the proper amount of nutrients from their food. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) believes this to be true and suggest that taking multivitamins on daily basis can improve your energy levels, immune system and overall health.

Myles takes a number of multivitamins including, Omega 3 Fish Oil’s that help to improve a person’s mental health and keeps the level of unhealthy fatty acids at a minimum. Calcium supplements with Vitamin D promotes strong bones and provides calcium absorption in your intestine to regulate your bowels. Iron capsules that is critical for the functioning of red blood cells. This is a vitamin that is difficult to find in foods. Myles takes B Complex , Magnesium , Selenium and Chromium every day  Vitamin B3’s can help to better a persons over all health, improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks.  While Potassium can be found in many common food, Myles takes many supplements to lower blood pressure and counteract the effects of too much sodium. Myles recommends these vitamins to most people for the positive impacts they can have on most people. Sometimes it is difficult for your body to get the support it needs but by taking multivitamins it can help make a person’s life a little better. But don’t expect these magic pills to work on their own. A proper diet and exercise is important if you want to live a long healthy life. There are certain multivitamins and supplements that have been deemed unnecessary for daily use by many physicians. Myles likes to inform every customer of the positive aspects of every potential vitamin prescription.
