Doctor's Professional Foot Therapy...

Posted March 15, 2012

...is a line of foot products formulated by Doctor Kenneth B. Rehm to help manage skin and nail problems common to the diabetic foot.  They have been clinically tested with patients at the Diabetic Foot and Wound Treatment Center in San Diego, California...Elephant Butte Spa carries this line in our Gift Shop.

We have the ToesEase Foot & Nail Cleanser (50 ready pads).  This formulation is specifically designed to loosen fungus, bacteria, and debris from the skin and nails so they can be cleaned more efficiently.  ToesEase also soothes and softens the skin, nails, and cuticles for more effective skin and nail management and safer, easier trimming of the toenails.  Key ingredients include Tea Tree Oil, Garlic Extract and Oil of Oregano.

We have the ToeSoak Foot Shampoo which is a wonderful addition to the diabetic foot care regime.  This soothing, relaxing and cleansing formula may be used as a foot soak or in the bath or shower to aid in cleansing and exfoliating dry skin.  Great for those who can't reach their feet...the Key ingreadients include: Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Concentrate, Tea Tree Oil, Dead Sea Salt, Oil of oregano and Garlic Extract.

An excellent companion to these products would be SheaTerra for Dry Skin.  This product includes time tested ingredients for relief of extremely dry skin....100% natural.

We also have Dr. Rehm's Original Foot Log which is designed for simple use.  Sit down, relax, and roll the foot log back and forth under your feet.  Try it both barefoot and with stockings:  you will notice different sensations.  This includes a 64 page book on Foot Pain. 

NM Centennial -Weathering the Storm

Posted March 8, 2012

Compared with the tornado ravaged Midwest, the earthquake- and tsunami- prone West Coast and the hurricane battered Gulf, New Mexico has been dealt a pretty fair hand when it comes to natural disasters.

San Marcial Flood of 1929: This was the last flood the village of San Marcial, south of Socorro, could take.  Previous floods had devastated this stretch of river but the 1929 flood wiped out San Marcial.

The old village at its peak had more than 1,000 residents, a Harvey House hotel, a railroad yard and farms.  The town had been destroyed in 1866 and rebuilt.  Flooding struck again in 1920 and 1921.

On August 10,11,and 12 of 1929, heavy rains in Socorro County swelled the Rio Grande River.  By August 12, the river had spilled its banks at San Acacia and flowed toward Socorro.

The flood destroyed crops and homes, and San Marcial was never repaired or repopulated.

Another round of heavy rains at the end of September caused the river to spill over its banks and flood the town again.  That flood destroyed railroad tracks and the road that led to and from the town.  The waters couldn't drain, and stayed stagnant over the winter according to historical reports.

More "Weathering the Storm" later.

Thanks to  "New Mexico, 100 Years of Statehood" published by the Albuquerque Journal for this information.

From the Valley’s members include Dustin Vendrely (Vocals/Guitar), Zane Watkins (Lead Guitar), Marcos Cadena (Drums), and Manny Rodriguez (Bass). From the Valley plays original songs that fall somewhere between country music and rock ‘n roll. Each member of the band brings a different style of music that shapes the overall sound into something that covers multiple genres. From the Valley also plays the cover songs that people love to here, which can be anything from Dwight Yoakum and Journey, to Talking Heads and Led Zeppelin. You are guaranteed to hear things at a From the Valley show that you would never hear otherwise. In July of 2011, From the Valley was named Champions of the Graham Central Station Battle of the Bands. From the Valley is looking forward to begin the recording process and release an album in the near future. Until then, come see From the Valley live. You won’t be disappointed....come join us Friday, July 27th in the Ivory Tusk Tavern! 

Blue Cats

Posted February 23, 2012

As posted in The Herald newspaper on 2/22/12:

Blue Moon Oil & Gas owner, David Hines, hasn't had a break since last April because the oil business is booming.  He came this weekend with Billy Jack Miller of Rio Grande Guide Service and caught all the blue catfish he wanted.  Billy Jack then took the fish to Chef Mack of Elephant Butte Inn, who prepared his client's fish three different ways:  blackened, baked and deep fried!!
