All the duties your liver is responsible for requires different vitamins and minerals, which can become depleted by consuming excess caffeine, sugar, and alcohol. ☕️🍬🍺 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our nutrition and lifestyle choices can cause our liver to become overwhelmed and essentially create “traffic jams” or “detours” on the chemical highways. So how do we keep our liver happy, healthy, and traffic-free? Detoxing the liver can help boost the immune system. 🍏🥦🍋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Missed the deadline for Saturday’s detox class? That’s okay!

I truly don’t like fitting people into a box, especially when it comes to health, when we are all so uniquely beautiful in our bodies and needs. So I really get revved up when we do this to pregnant women. The expectation to deliver on a specific day dictated by an ultrasound seems wild when you really think about it, adding unnecessary angst to already hormonal, possibly anxious, and uncomfortable women who just want baby out! Normalizing this and so many other pregnancy concerns is a huge part of my perinatal visits. Empowering women with knowledge excites me. In my prenatal visits I discuss food, nutrition, expectations, mood, interventions, postpartum planning, birth prep, and more! DM me for more info on how working with an ND and doula can support an awesome pregnancy journey. And here’s to a birth MONTH and not due date. Trust your body will birth when ready. #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathicdoctor #doula #healthypregnancy #birthyourway #birth #pregnancy #perinataleducation #ottawaND #ottawadoula #ottawa #womenempoweringwomen

I recently came across an interesting paper (citation at the bottom of this post) that demonstrated the above title, something that has made intuitive sense for quite some time but hasn't been shown much in the literature.⠀ ⠀ The paper in question examined the difference between mesenchymal stem cells in the nucleus pulposus (the inner part of each disc in your spine) of degenerated discs and non-degenerative discs. Compared to degenerated discs, stem cells in non-degenerated discs: ⠀ ⠀ // had higher rates of proliferation⠀ // had higher potential to migrate towards site of injury⠀ // had a higher expression of 'stemmess' genes⠀ ⠀ This paper adds to a growing body of research that suggests that chronic injuries may not heal well because of changes in the local stem cell niche. Normally, when you injure an area of the body, the stem cells that are in that same area respond and help to repair the damage. However, chronic repeated injuries can deplete the local stem cell niche, not in terms of their numbers, but in terms of their ability to function.⠀ ⠀ This is why stem cell injections can work very well in certain situations where the local stem cell niche may be depleted.⠀ ⠀ Source: Jia et al. 2017.

A clear and sharp mind is an important thing to pursue. You can improve the quality of your life within the time you have — and that includes keeping your mind sharp and vibrant. 💭💭💭 🙏PRACTISE MEDITATION: One of the best ways to help protect and strengthen your brain is through developing a meditation practice, even if it's just 10 to 20 minutes a day. You can practice breath-focused exercises, mindfulness meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, or engage in a spiritual practice or ritual, like prayer. ○○○ 👍 PRACTICE DEEP LISTENING: Any time you're engaged in activities that require communication, your neurons need to fire and synapses need to function: ► Do not rush when communicating. Wait, take a pause. ► Breathe. Inhale deeply and exhale completely, allowing the mind to quiet. ► Listen with your heart. Notice how words make you feel. Try to engage all of your senses. Get into the practice of regularly quieting the mind so that the neurons can do their job of communicating. ○○○ ☕USE NATURAL SHILAJIT: Certain vitamins and minerals, if lacking in your diet, can make you feel tired, foggy, slow and weak when it comes to the gym. If you are lacking, it’s a pretty easy fix to get you back on track with the help of Natural Shilajit, it boasts 85 trace minerals, full-spectrum amino acids, enzymes, and dense phytonutrients: ► Take a Pea-Sized Portion of Shilajit Resin (approx 0.5 gram) ► Dissolve in Warm Water, Tea or Coffee ► Enjoy the Delicious, Healthy Drink 💭💭💭 ❓How do you keep your mind sharp?
Do you have neck pain? Upper back pain? Well a recent study has shown that the use of smart phones can increase pain from keeping our head in a flexed position. In fact, the flexion can increase you heads’ weight by 27 pounds and the average person spends 2-4 hours daily in this position. Change the posture, change the position, become pain free.

Acid reflux is surprisingly NOT always due to excess stomach acid. As a #naturopath I often find myself trying to convince patients taking acid blockers that their reflux is most likely not due to too much acid, rather anatomical dysfunction and maybe even too little acid.

Yes, the healing power of nature is inherent in natural medicines but guess what? It’s also inherent in YOU! YOU are a part of nature. YOUR body was naturally created to #function and #heal itself. If you feel disconnected then let’s work together to #RECONNECT The healing power of nature = the Vis Medicatrix Naturae “Naturopathic medicine recognizes the body’s inherent ability, which is ordered and intelligent, to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to recovery, and to facilitate and augment this healing ability.” - Bastyr University’s definition of the Vis Medicatrix Naturae. #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathicdoctor #naturecure #passionflower #docdover #animasnaturalhealth
I confess, once upon a time, I used to visit a lot of All You Can Eat with friends. I always wear looser and baggy clothes on purpose. 😂 After I met Mr.Lactose Intolerance, I plan my wardrobe around ice cream dates. ⠀ .⠀ I know I am not the only one who does that.⠀ ,⠀ Recently, I had an influx of patients swinging by my office with digestive concerns. I have heard horror stories of being mistaken to be 5 months pregnant to having urgency to fart in rush hour subway. So I know I have it relatively good in comparison.⠀ .⠀ Let me tell you the best part about those scenarios -- Naturopathic Doctors are one of the best people to talk to if you are having digestive issues. So chat us up! We are always eager to share our knowledge.⠀ .⠀ #naturopathicdoctor #naturopathicmedicine #markhamhealth #markhamND #naturopath #markhamwellness #markhamcancerND #healthtip #healthandwellness #markhamnaturopath #torontonaturopath #torontocancerND #healthychoice #yourhealthfirst #healthyeating #mindfuleating #mindfulness #digestiveproblem #digestionproblems #digestion #bloating #bloat
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👶🏻 The Month After Giving Birth | Traditional Chinese Medicine calls it “Zuo Yue Zi” aka “Sitting Month” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many mothers focus on getting their body back into shape quickly after giving birth. However, the health and healing that our bodies need at this point is beyond just weight loss. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective, the month after giving birth is the most crucial time to replenish the Blood and Qi (vital energy). During childbirth (Natural or C-Section), women loose a lot of Blood and Qi, which depletes them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TCM practitioners suggest: 1. Rest (ALOT) 2. Eat nourishing/warming food (ex. chicken/bone broth, or soup) 3. Avoid cold/uncooked food (ex. salad, cold beverages) 4. Add warm spices to your diet (ex. ginger, cinnamon, pepper) 5. Have “Qi/Blood building” food: (ex. egg yolk, beets, clean animal protein, cherries, raspberries, lefty greens) 6. Keep warm especially your feet and head ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚠️ Herbs and Acupuncture, not only help your body bounce back to normal, it can also help with other postpartum concerns: 1. Postpartum depression 2. Sleep concerns 3. Lactation production 4. Digestion concerns 5. Fatigue ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #acureleafclinic #acupuncture #herbalmedicine #doula #naturalmedicine #tcm #pregnant #prenatal #postpartum #recovery #birthcentre #birth #obgyn #midwife #momlife #infant #lifestyle #fertility #naturopathicmedicine #chiropractor #fitness #physicaltherapy #massagetherapy #womenhealth #womenhelpingwomen #holistichealth #nutrition #health #foodtherapy #communitybirthprogram
Lost my best friend Sage this past week. She was 15 1/2 years old and was the best exercise buddy a person could have. Hiking was her absolute favorite exercise, but she would swim with me too. We hiked everywhere! She even got to go to the dog park on the ocean attached to Trumps golf course in California! Not on purpose, the NHL was on strike and my brothers played at the Staples Center and it was the only dog park around... but still. She hiked Sedona, Jerome, Muir Woods, Durango and many other cool places. One can never replace a best friend like her. When I am up and walking again, fingers crossed 🤞 I will take her and leave a little bit on each of her favorite hikes. She couldn’t fight with her body any longer she had already survived a stroke, melanoma and car accident, at 15 lymphoma finally took her. But she leaves me with a bit of strength, I know her body couldn’t make a comeback, but somehow in this tragedy I can finally see that mine might. I may have the strength to come back from all of this, I may get to hike those trails again, take those dance classes... Sage will always be with me in my heart, hopefully giving me the strength to continue moving forward, for her. . . . . . . #naturopathicmedicine #bodypositive #healthbeyondsize #mindbodyspirit #nationaldogday #naturopathicdoctor #mansbestfriend #mybestfriend #rip #hiking #sedona #jerome #durango #dogsofinstagram #lymie #spoonie #moldtoxicity #mycotoxindisease #hipreplacement #lostmybestfriend #sage #alwaysinmyheart

Goji berries! These red jewels are straight from our garden. While native to Asia, these superfood berries grow prolifically in our backyard. They are rich in vitamin C, antioxidant zeaxanthin, and may support the immune system, healthy blood sugar control, and male fertility. We used our new food dehydrator to turn these fresh berries into the dried version you find for $$$ in the store. I find the fresh berries to be too bitter, but they are delicious and sweet when dried. #foodasmedicine #health #healthyfood #garden #gojiberries #momlife #naturopathicmedicine #nutrition #vitamins
Are you someone who suffers from dry, thin, or rough skin with a tendency to fine lines & wrinkles? 🌟 Living in the desert can take a toll on our body; especially "the skin we are in". From an Ayurvedic perspective this is an indication that the body houses more air & ether element. 💫 Taking care of our largest organ, the skin, by using hydrating products that contain medicated oils rather than water based lotions can be extremely beneficial in balancing this excess air & ether element. ✨ The Vata Ritual Kit is an Ayurvedic based 3-step skincare ritual @paavaniayurveda that will keep your skin hydrated. It is great for maturing skin, prone to fine lines & wrinkles. 💫 With the right self-care routine we can slow down the aging process which is one of the core principles that this body of medicine strongly resides upon. 🌟 Our "Ayurvedic Facial Bar" is an experience of its own. We created this concept to give our clients the opportunity to try the @paavaniayurveda Skin Care line for themselves before buying. Come discover your dosha and take a seat so you can love the skin your in! #ayurvedicskincare #paavaniayurveda #lovetheskinyourein
Amazing week @rejuvclinic this week in London! Two breast cancer patients given the all clear from their oncologists!! What I see in my clinics is if you heal the emotional roots of disease and support the immune system & detox pathways, to do what God designed it to do, patients get well. Not an easy road, it’s actually a huge mountain to climb & all we do at Rejuv is support the mind body healing process and since the body was designed to fight disease and be well it usually does a great job. We don’t claim to cure cancer but through functional & naturopathic medicine patients do very well. The key I feel is to create an internal environment that nourishes the patient but starves the cancer.

Our behavioral patterns that we do consistently on a day to day basis have a profound impact on our health outcomes. We are what we eat. We are how we move. We are how we sleep. We are how we manage stressors in our life. Behaviors are actions that are influenced by many factors to include how we feel and our sense of identity. ⠀ ⠀ If we view ourselves as a strong, motivated individual who is willing to do whatever it takes to live a rewarding life of purpose while maximizing our potential, I bet our habitual health choices are going to reflect that. ⠀ ⠀ If we are experiencing sadness, fear, anger, anxiety, guilt or shame, and making behavioral choices based on these feelings, we are more likely going to eat poorly, be sedentary, drink excessive alcohol, smoke tobacco, stay up too late, and generally not invest in our health. ⠀ ⠀ What actionable health choices would the highest version of yourself be making on a consistent basis?⠀ ⠀ #naturopathicmedicine #integrativemedicine #naturalmedicine #functionalmedicine #alternativemedicine #healingnature #foodismedicine #optimalhealth #longevity #antiaging #holistichealth #holisticlife #holisticliving #health #wellness #healthandwellness #qualityoflife #aloha #oahu #hawaii #dropunui #practicewhatyoupreach #leadbyexample #doctorasteacher

“If you find yourself having to regularly indulge in consumer self-care, it’s because you are disconnected from actual self-care, which has very little to do with “treating yourself” and a whole lot do with parenting yourself and making choices for your long-term wellness. Self-care is often a very unbeautiful thing. It is often doing the ugliest thing that you have to do, like sweat through another workout or tell a toxic friend you don’t want to see them anymore or get a second job so you can have a savings account or figure out a way to accept yourself so that you’re not constantly exhausted from trying to be everything, all the time and then needing to take deliberate, mandated breaks from living to do basic things like drop some oil into a bath and read Marie Claire and turn your phone off for the day. A world in which self-care has to be such a trendy topic is a world that is sick. Self-care should not be something we resort to because we are so absolutely exhausted that we need some reprieve from our own relentless internal pressure. True self-care is not salt baths and chocolate cake, it is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from.” - Brianna Wiest . . . . . #selfcareseptember #selfcare #selfcareroutine #wellness #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathic #recharge #treatyoself #joy #holistichealing #natural #naturopathicmedicine #rejuvinate #relax #heal #mindfulness #coffeebreak #dailycalm #stressrelease #selfcare #selfcareroutine #wellness #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathic #recharge #treatyoself #wellnesswithin #liveyourbestlife #lifebydesign
Spirit Lake just before the rain.
Big milestone for me today!! For those that know me, know that I can't handle needles. If my children need one, I send marco, my mother or one of my girlfriends. With this all this cosmic energy and ascension by body is feeling it. Since I'm at a cross roads, Dr Natalia suggested acupuncture. I, literally, went into convulsions thinking of little needles being placed in my back for an energy release. After a few days of pondering 🤔 I thought, Couldn't she just play my sound bowls for me??!?! Nope! I did it! And I fucking nailed it for 30minutes!!!! Totally proud of myself. I didn't shed a single tear, faint or vomit 🤢 Trust the practitioners that surround you. Surround yourself with those that push you to excel. Even if it's with little needles in your back. You've got this! Dr Natalia is the Naturopath at @rebirthwellness and she runs her acupuncture clinic on Thursdays. Contact Rebirth to set an appointment. You don't need to be a mom, or pregnant to attend. All level of humans are welcome through the pink door. #acupuncture #energyrelease #naturopathicmedicine #justdoit #pigsdofly #bookasession
Auricular Acupuncture comprises points in the ear which elicit a response in a corresponding organ or structure. Top needle: Shenmen which calms the mind Middle needle: Zero point which provides homeostatic balance Lower needle: Lung which will help with fullness in the chest and local lung symptoms as we approach cold and flu season #auricularacupuncture #naturopathicmedicine #tcm #student #health #wellness #healing #thresholdforwellness
That’s a wrap! Another successful quarter coming to a close here at SCNM 👏🏻 Always grateful for all the wonderful classmates that have become family ❤️ Here is a classic “themed” end of the quarter picture. You can tell we have been busy when black and white becomes the theme. . . Another 11 weeks✔️ 100 patients seen ✔️ 5 shifts✔️ 3 finals, 2 projects ✔️ Always learning ✔️ . . Some conditions I have come across this quarter: cervical, prostate, and thyroid cancer, Ulcerative Colitis, Lyme’s Disease, Mood and Personality Disorders, Diabetes, HTN, hyperlipidemia, and so much more. One of the most important skills I have been practicing in clinic is how to LISTEN, to be present with the patient and to be intentional in each shift.
Repost @sashapaulnutrition 👇 Many people think healthy eating is expensive... but remember that food choice has a powerful impact on your health. By choosing to invest in nourishing your body, you are literally supporting your body to fight disease and function at its best. Essential tips for healthy eating on a budget: 1) Make sure you are planning your meals. If you go food shopping with no list you will buy unnecessary food and will probably come away without a single full meal (this used to be me 😂 so I completely get it) 2) If you are on a budget there is really no need to buy into the latest health products. For example, do you need that £30 superfood powder in your porridge or could you add some frozen berries for an antioxidant boost? Bottom line: invest in your health now so you don’t have to pay later 🌱
All of this. . . And deep, rejuvinative sleep too.
Everyone could use a little more Vitamin D in their lives! We naturally get Vitamin D from the sun, but as the days start to get shorter, that can be harder and harder to do. Thankfully there is a great supplement from Genestra. Simple and easy to use - one drop a day under your tounge, in your water or your smoothie - easy peasy. . Now available at Trinity Wellness Centre. If you have questions about your vitamin intake or general health, book in for a free consultation with one of our Naturopathic Doctors.
Once in a while I get a major reminder of the most important thing in life, HEALTH! 💫 I live by the saying ‘Health is Wealth’ anyone else? I’m human and sometimes step out of the boundaries… sooo here I am inflamed parotid gland the size of a XL golf ball. Diet, sleep, stress levels, physical & mental health ALL come into play when living with autoimmune conditions and trying to avoid flare ups. I rarely share and only a few people truly know that I live with autoimmune illnesses, but 50 million other humans in the U.S. are autoimmune warriors as well. ALSO, many of these conditions can truly be described as INVISIBLE illnesses- meaning that the way you feel inside is not noticeable on the outside by others. A way I was able to keep quiet for 7+ years & tough out my symptoms even though numerous days were/are plain shitty. Why keep silent all these years? I didn’t want to be a burden or ruin someone’s day by how I felt. The prevalence of autoimmune disorders is becoming more common so let’s share and learn from our experiences/stories, yes? Also, from experience & studying Naturopathic medicine +Chinese medicine there is soooo much we can do to improve our wellness & prevent as many of these nasty flare ups through natural, less detrimental measures. 💚#AutoimmuneAwarness
We learned how to use auricular acupuncture today! 👂Auricular acupuncture uses certain points of the ear that correspond to different parts of the body. When these points are stimulated, dysfunction of the body is normalized. There’s research to suggest auricular acupuncture as a treatment for managing substance abuse and dependence, pain management and anxiety related disorders. 🤓Any classmates want to take a guess at what points these are and what they’re being used for?! #auricularacupuncture #naturopathicstudent #naturopathicmedicine
One of the philosophies that we practice at The @villagehealthclinic is ‘Doctor As Teacher’. We teach our patients about their diagnosis, what the possible outcomes are, what the treatment options are. We teach them about the benefits of certain behaviors, and the risks of others. By teaching, our therapy becomes much more inclusive and valuable 👯‍♀️
The overconsumption of sugar has been linked to countless health issues including diabetes, obesity, chronic inflammation, auto-immune disorders and numerous other diseases. The average person eats 66 lbs of sugar per year! POUNDS! Did you know that when reading food labels, every 4g of sugar = 1tsp. That means, most of those cute little yogurt cups (fruit on the bottom I'm talkin' to you), contain 4 tsp of sugar. 😵 Reduce and replace refined sugars in your diet. Here are five natural alternatives to help you break the sugar habit while still enjoying a treat now and then: Organic Coconut Sugar, Stevia, Medjool dates, Bananas, Raw Organic Honey. #permennaturopathic #healventura #naturopathicmedicine #healthytips #nutrition #health #healthyalternatives #sweettreats #sweettooth #sugar #alternativesweetener #reduceinflammation #readthelabel

There's lots to admire about honeybees. 🌸They work together harmoniously and efficiently, as a community, to achieve a common goal. 🐝 In distressed situations, honeybees will show remarkable altruism towards each other; defending, caring for and feeding the colony. ☺️They are usually kind & helpful but can get pretty rankled as well with each other too!! They can rustle up a temper, especially if intruders like wasps try to get in the hive. . Another cool fact is that they change jobs often (at different ages) & studies suggest this is what helps keep their brains sharp. ⚡️ . Although let's be clear- it's the ladies that do almost all of the work. The male drones pretty much have it made shagging all day and buzzing around. . . Curious to know what it FEELS like to be a bee? Read The Bees by @paulllaline Seriously- I started to feel like a bee. It was weird but cool. . . 📷 @ninasbees #honeybees #honeybee #bees #beepropolis #beepollen #propolis #lifestylemedicine #pollinators #savethebees #beeproducts #lbloggers #beefacts #hbloggers #healthblogger #holistichealing #holistichealth #apiculture #naturalmedicine #naturopathicmedicine #naturopath #nutritionist #nutritioncoach #healthcoach #healthcoaching #honey #ukblogger #ukbloggers #hollandandbarrett
I tend to talk a lot about the effects of exogenous corticosteroid use because the sheer volume of patients who see me after several failed corticosteroid treatments.⠀ ⠀ One of the side effects that I haven't talked much about, but applies heavily to anyone over 40 years old, is the impact of elevated cortisol levels on bone health. ⠀ ⠀ In your body, cortisol is the catabolic hormone, meaning that it breaks down just about anything it needs for energy. This is more pronounced in states of starvation, however, this can also occur even when energy balance is net neutral. In the latter situation, there can be a shifting of nutrients throughout the body as cortisol is balanced by your androgen hormones. ⠀ ⠀ Specifically, cortisol triggers the breakdown of bone in order to free up amino acids to be used for gluconeogenesis. While this may be helpful if you were stranded on an island with no food and you needed energy to try and figure out how to get off the island, this doesn't accomplish much in a well-nourished and well-fed adult. So, oral and injectable corticosteroids increase bone breakdown, and if this continues long enough can reduce bone mineral density and lead to osteopenia and osteoporosis. ⠀ ⠀ Both oral and injectable corticosteroids all act like cortisol in the body, with some of them acting even more strongly than cortisol due to its binding strength and how long it takes for the compound to be eliminated in your body. ⠀ ⠀ This means that chronic stress, inducing high levels of cortisol for a long period of time, can act similarly to injected or oral steroids because the body sees just about the same thing - elevated levels of glucocorticoids.⠀ ⠀ Unsure what to do instead of corticosteroid injections? I highly recommend you search out and find a regenerative medicine practitioner and explore options such as prolotherapy, PRP and stem cell therapy.⠀ ___⠀ ⠀ #RegenerativePerformance #NaturopathicMedicine #NaturopathicDoctor #FunctionalMedicine #IntegrativeMedicine #Medical #Doctor #Pain #PainFree #SportsMedicine #InjectionTherapy #PRP #Prolo #Prolotherapy #RegenerativeInjections #StemCell #RegenerativeMedicine #Endocrinology #Neuroendocrinology

There are a lot of benefits to multivitamins depending on your personal needs. For example, if you're a person who has a difficult time consuming adequate fruits🍏🍓🍇 & vegetables🥦🌽🥕, you may be deficient in several vitamins & minerals 💊. Multivitamins can definitely be an excellent addition to your diet by ensuring that you're getting all the recommended daily allowance of your basic vitamins and minerals. . So what's my particular choice for a multivitamin? 🤔 👇🏽 Pure Encapsulations Polyphenol Nutrients🤗 . Why does this multivitamin work for my personal needs? 👉🏽 It contains vitamins & minerals that support various physiological functions, including nervous system health, ocular health, bone health, nutrient & hormone metabolism, & glucose utilization. Most importantly, since I'm working out 5-6 days a week, the antioxidants in this vitamin helps sustain energy levels that may be depleted from the amount of stress my body endures🤪🤯. .

According a study conducted by the American Institute of Stress, as of 2014, 77% of us experience physical symptoms due to stress. Today this number is likely to be higher due to the continued stresses of modern society. So here are a few ways to help combat stress naturally. 1. Biotics De-stress uses concentrated doses of casein protein found in milk that has been found to reduce the effect of daily stress. 2. Enjoy the great outdoors- walking outside in the sunlight for a few minutes a day can produce extra vitamin D and is a great way to get some extra exercise. 3. Make sure to get plenty of restful sleep. Sleep is vital for cellular recovery and mental clarity. 4. Treat yourself- a day at the spa, massage, or chiropractor every once in a while can provide enough relaxation and physical recovery to keep you going 100%. #biotics #chiropractic #castlerockcolorado #health #wellness #stressrelief #livestressfree #harfordchiropractic #healthcare #supplements #natural #naturopathicmedicine

Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to modify connections and functions in response to the environment and is very strong in a young brain. We see this in how kids are sponges for learning; this is partly because of neuroplasticity. A new study showed that older adults do in fact have plasticity, however new info just doesn’t seem to stick around. By increasing levels of the amino acid GABA, plasticity in the brain lasted longer! This means that GABA may improve the retention of learning in an aging brain. . . . . . #getold #gaba #instahealth #instabeauty #health #aging #learning #learneveryday #read #research #remember #naturopathicmedicine
Lunch today was SO delish!😋After my amazing @barre3 class, I threw together this bunless grass-fed burger + roasted carrot “fries”+ 🥑🥑🥑 + romaine. HIT. THE. SPOT. . Food doesn’t have to be so complicated or scary. Our bodies need food to live and to be able to enjoy the life we have been given!🙏🏼 I work deeply with each of my patients helping them learn how to nourish themselves holistically and intuitively... in whatever way is best for them. It’s one of my favorite parts of my job! Food allows us to function... to be alive! It’s so important to find a way of being and a way of nourishing ourselves that feels right. . It took me years to figure out what works for me and what doesn’t, but I am so eternally GRATEFUL to be able to pay it forward and help others thrive. What we eat and how we eat matters! @amybadernd and I talk a lot of digestion and food hygiene on our new @beenaturalradio podcast this week too, so give it a listen!🌿
GUT HEALTH POST #6 Avoid processed sugar. Eating even small amount of sugar can feed the wrong bacteria, screwing up all of the work you’ve put into your health and fitness. I’m 14 days into NO sugar with the exception of complex carbs and small amounts of low glycemic fruits like blueberries. I find that eating lots of fiber at night helps with cravings because it makes you feel full! ▫️▫️▫️▫️ There’s an intimate connection between gut health, looking better naked and performing at your best. If your gut health is poor, you’re likely to be overweight. If it’s exceptional, you’re likely to be thin. So, DUH, find a way in which to get exceptional gut health! Your skin will look healthier, you’ll be able to think more clearly, and you will be able to lose fat and add muscle to your desire. Oh, and you’ll have a stronger immune system. Over the next 30 days, I’ll share with you what I’m doing to improve mine! ▫️▫️▫️▫️ CONTEXT I get asked this all the time: “How do I get abs like yours.” YOU have abs. You simply need to expose them. How do you do that? There are many ways; here are three: diet aggressively (this is the conventional approach, will harm your health, and PREVENT you from achieving your goals, long term), diet moderately, or PURSUE EXTREME HEALTH. If you attempt the latter two, you’ll get there fairly quickly. If you simply do the latter, like me, you’ll be able to shape yourself into whatever you’d like, and keep it without much effort. GUT HEALTH IS THE FIRST STEP IN EXTREME HEALTH! 📸 @laurenhillary @starklifeca . . . . #testodderone #guthealth #starkfitness #starkfit #strengthtraining #starktraining #aesthetics #strong #fitforlife #naturopathicmedicine #teamstark #fitnesslife #health #strength

Can you believe it’s almost that time again?! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and SNC will be offering our yearly discount on our Breast Thermography imaging services in honor of that! Normally this service is $265 but if done during the month of October, you will receive $50 off, bringing it to $215. This includes the imaging appointment and interpretation of your images. Following that a doctors appointment can be scheduled here at SNC or with your regular doctor (if they are familiar and comfortable going over this type of lab work.) What is Breast Thermography?? It is a radiation-free alternative to mammography. A series of infrared images are taken while exposing the body to both hot and cold temperatures to capture how the blood vessels in the breasts respond to this stimulation thus showing if there is problematic grouping of blood cells that could be pre-cancerous or cancerous. These infrared images can detect tumors with a 2mm diameter, the size of a grain of rice and 10 times smaller than the size detected by manual breast exam. There are many preventative measures that can be taken to then improve the breast health and tissue. Interested in taking advantage of this amazing tool and discount?! Give our front desk a call to get on the schedule with our Certified Thermography Technician. Want more information? Visit our website at http://www.snohomishnaturopathic.com/breast-thermography.aspx or Thermascan.com for more information.
