Omega-3's. I know you have heard a lot about them.⁠ If you search it online, you will get a million hits. ⁠
⁠.
So let's make it simple.⁠
⁠.
▪️It's a type of healthy fat. ⁠
▪️Building block for your cells and tissues.⁠
▪️Can taste like fish. ⁠
▪️Fortified in different foods. ⁠
▪️Hugely beneficial to human health: cardiovascular health, skin, mood and cognition, and certain hormonal health issues. These are the biggies with the most research. ⁠
⁠.
Omega-3's can be found in: ⁠
1) Animal sources:⁠
- fish like anchovies, sardines, mackerel, salmon, herring⁠
- omega-3 fortified eggs
⁠.
2) Plant-based sources: ⁠
- nuts like almonds, walnuts, ⁠pecans, macadamian
- seeds like sunflower, pumpkin, ⁠chia
⁠.
3) Supplements:⁠
- dose matters so you don't have to take a bajillion capsules per day
- consider plant- vs animal-based ⁠products
- should have a start and end date⁠. or a date when you reconsider the prescription
- expected outcome for why you take it⁠
- either alone or in combo with other fat-soluble vitamins (e.g. Vitamin D)
.
These are the BASICS of what omega-3's and what's out there. Want to learn more about them and other supplements? At @gbimedicine, we have a 8-week Your Healthiest Self Program that where we talk about different aspects of health and wellness, including different supplements, exercise and movements ideas, hormone balancing, stress management and so much more!

Happy Pride! 🎉🌈

Did you know a disproportionate number of LGBTQ people face discrimination at the doctor's office? Or avoid medical care altogether in fear of discrimination?

At our clinic we're committed to providing our LGBTQ community with the health care they need and have every right to.

Our clinicians are trained in recognizing the health needs and risks for this community, and we provide an inclusive and sensitive environment that is free from discrimination, judgement, and lack of understanding.

We provide a wide range of services to help our patients feel better, and cope better with the unique challenges that come with being part of the LGBTQ community.

Everyone that enters our inclusive space will have a dignified experience, free from judgement and discrimination.

That is our commitment to you.

We've put a pause on our 8 Week program, Your Healthiest Self, to provide our community with resources and ways to support the Black and Indigenous communities.

Why is this something that we as a team have chosen to highlight on this platform? Because systemic racism, social injustice, and widespread oppression is a public health issue.

We can not ignore the fact that racial disparities occur in rates of child mortality, life expectancy, food insecurity, economic opportunity, and many other areas.

Now more than ever, we need to show our support for Black and Indigenous communities. As an organization, we stand with these communities, and actively promote an anti-racist, diverse, and inclusive culture.

From videos, to podcasts, articles, petitions, and support funds, please take the time to go through this material and support our fellow human beings at this time.

Please share these resources with friends, family, and your community.

You can find a direct link in our bio.

We're excited to announce we'll be re-opening soon!

As of June 1st, we will be accepting in-person visits. Virtual visits will still be offered and are preferred for those who do not require in-person services.

We've worked hard to make sure our clinic environment, cleaning and disinfecting procedures, and policies have been updated to keep you safe during your appointments with us. When you book an in person appointment, we will guide you on our new procedures to ensure your safety and the safety of our practitioners and community.

If you have been waiting for an appointment, send us a DM, email, or call us to book in!

Your Healthiest Self: Application Form

We're incredibly excited to announce the launch of our 8 week online program, Your Healthiest Self!

Do you wish you had started working on your health earlier? Are you currently wondering how you can get it in check?

Do you wonder if you should start with nutrition? Or exercise? Or maybe this thing called mindfulness that everyone seems to be talking about? Maybe Wim Hof's cold immersion? Hormones?!

With the plethora of options available right now, especially in the wake of COVID-19, we wanted to provide an option that helps you in the realms of physical, mental, and emotional health. We have years of experience as clinicians in these realms and want to provide you with somewhere to start that incorporates ALL these areas of health. With each one being as important as the other, you can't leave one out without noticing a deficiency in your health.

All this brings us to our 8 week online program called "Your Healthiest Self". We won't lie, the current situation with COVID-19 inspired this program, but we're so excited to be able to bring something to you that we believe makes you a stronger, healthier, and more mentally resilient human.

We incorporate nutrition, behavioural/habit change, mindfulness, hormone balancing, and physical activity into this program to make you YOUR healthiest self.

This program includes:
- Weekly videos to teach you how to live your healthiest life. All created by our health experts.
- "Homework" so you can implement what you've learned right away, and submit it to our experts for feedback.
- A LIVE Q&A session each week (for 8 weeks) with our health experts.

We can only facilitate a certain number of participants in this program to ensure we deliver top notch, quality service to everyone who enrols, so if you want to be part of this life changing, one of a kind program, apply soon.

The program starts next week, MAY 4th, 2020.

Biggest news: We won't be charging for the program at all.

Applications available here: https://forms.gle/ueD9dAebcAknrRtE8

One common method of determining when you are fertile in your cycle is… tracking changes to your cervical mucus!

As you approach ovulation in the middle of your cycle, your cervical mucus will become extremely slippery and stretchy; some say that it looks like egg whites! This change can indicate that it is your most fertile time of your month and help you conceive.

Want to know more about cervical mucus and other methods to track your ovulation? Reach out and make a complimentary consultation with one of our naturopathic doctors as we would be more than happy to help!

What you consume will have a very large impact on your body’s health and this includes fertility in women. Foods that are high in antioxidants are shown to improve the overall health of the reproductive organs as well as the quality of the eggs produced. What do antioxidants do? They help reduce damage to the body that’s caused by free radicals. The damage caused by free radicals is not limited to fertility alone, but can also increase the risk of heart disease, arthritis, and certain cancers. To combat this, here are some examples of antioxidant rich foods that you can add to your daily diet:
Cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower)
Berries - specifically blueberries and raspberries
Leafy greens/vegetables (such as spinach)
Teas (like green tea)

Additionally, foods high in zinc help regulate hormones, cell division, and ovulation, which further boosts fertility. Some examples of zinc rich foods are:
Seafood (such as oysters, crab and lobster)
Lean meats and eggs
Beans and chickpeas
Nuts and seeds (like pumpkin seeds or pine nuts)

Make sure you get a variety of these foods into your diet daily, and if you have any questions, book a free consult with one of our NDs!

Low libido can affect people at any age and can act as a gateway to improve your overall health and wellness.

If low libido is a concern for you, talk to your health care practitioner about your concerns as the root cause could be multifactorial: stress, anxiety, depression, sleep deprivation, cardiovascular health, hormone changes like lower testosterone or menopause, blood sugar dysregulation and diabetes, new prescription drugs or changes to old ones you are taking, smoking, alcohol intake, and general lifestyle habits including diet and exercise all have a role to play.

One of the risks of having unprotected intercourse is contracting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). While it is not exclusively spread by intercourse alone, STDs are one of the most common contagious diseases that can cause infertility if left untreated.

A few of the most common STDs that affect fertility are:
Chlamydia
Gonorrhea
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
Syphilis
Human papillomavirus (HPV)

If you are sexually active, it is important to be aware of what sexual behaviour that can lead to these infections, as well as any symptoms associated with them. Be sure to get screened and receive professional help if you suspect you may have contracted an STD. Be aware and stay healthy!
