Sleeping it Real

8/16/2019

Do the demands of tomorrow necessitate a sleeping pill tonight? It’s been a full day, and you’re (insert expletive) tired. You did all of the things; all of the work things, mum things, wife things …. now the kids are finally in bed. Finally, you can swap your beloved coffee for a deserved glass of wine (or a sleepy time tea?) and turn on Netflix to “turn off your brain”. It’s time to sleep, right? So why can’t you? Was it the 5 cups of coffee? Was it because you skipped your workout to...

You are what you [and the bugs in your guts] eat.

8/3/2019

You eat food. You break it down. You absorb all the bits you need and poop out the rest, right? Kind of, but not quite. It’s a little more complicated than that because of the trillions of bacteria in your guts. And you know what? They eat what you eat. Like it or not, you and your tiny little roommates are not just living and eating together -- you are dependent on each other -- “you” are actually a superorganism. So, we must accept the fact that bacteria are going to live with us. And,...

Separating Fat from Fiction. You’re struggling with your weight and feeling frustrated with the lack of results. You’re doing a LOT of good things, but nothing seems to push the needle in the right direction. You’re not alone. Over 64% of Canadian adults over the age of 18 are now obese and overweight, and Dr. Mary Choi ND thinks our culture deserves an “F”. She thinks we are failing. But fat loss is simple, right?

Mindful Eats.

5/17/2019
More
It’s 8 pm. It’s been another long day at work, and even more so after the kids pushed every one of your buttons, testing your patience to the max. There is a sense of relief now that they’re safely tucked away in bed. Then suddenly you think to yourself “I’m hungry”. But you’ve already had a “healthy” portion of dinner. Oh yeah, and that bag of chips you picked up at the gas station because you had to fill up the car on the way home after your partner left it close to empty. So are you...

Patterned, Not Broken.

Whether you’re “sick” or well, if you’re interested in improving your health, you’re likely going to have to change. And change is hard. It takes energy, courage, and vulnerability to make changes to our lives. It’s going to take the right work, the right actions, and practice. Which doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun. To make it happen we need meaning and purpose. We need support and connection. We need compassion and insight. You don’t need to be told to eat more vegetables and eat...

“Hemoglobin is not enough”. We all want more energy. You may want to run around with your kids, cook more, get up early and go to the gym, start an evening yoga practice, or go for a walk with your friends … Maybe your goals are much more modest and you’re just constantly exhausted; even the day to day “stuff” just seems to be too much.You may have sparks of motivation to make things happen, but without energy, you lack the biochemical fuel to put it into action. And do you know what...

In Utero. Fertility and Miscarriage with Dr. Jordan Robertson ND.

4/1/2019
More
There is an old Chinese Proverb that says “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” Similarly, waiting until you’ve had 3 miscarriages is not the best time to address your fertility. But that’s what it takes for a diagnosis of “recurrent miscarriage”. With one in four pregnancies resulting in miscarriage, it’s important to know what improves your chances of carrying to term. What can we do today to optimize outcomes? What is the contribution of diet and...
