Regular alcohol consumption can have serious consequences for the gut and its delicate balance.
One of the significant issues caused by alcohol is inflammation in the digestive tract. When you consume alcohol, it irritates the lining of the stomach and intestines, leading to inflammation. This inflammation can disrupt the normal functioning of the digestive system, leading to symptoms like bloating, gas, and abdominal pain. Moreover, heavy alcohol consumption can lead to chronic inflammation which can contribute to the development of more severe digestive issues over time.
But there is good news!
Your body is resilient if given the chance it can heal! As you abstain from alcohol, the inflammatory response in the digestive tract starts to subside, allowing the intestinal lining to begin the healing process.
Learn more about the effects of alcohol on your health and benefits of going alcohol free in our latest email.
Leaky gut, or intestinal permeability, is a condition where the lining of the intestines becomes more porous, allowing harmful substances like toxins, bacteria, and undigested food particles to leak into the bloodstream. This can trigger an immune response, leading to inflammation and other potential health issues. The signs and symptoms of leaky gut can vary depending on the individual, and may include:
👉 Digestive problems: such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.
👉 Food sensitivities: Developing an intolerance or allergic reactions to certain foods
👉 Skin issues: such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis
👉 Autoimmune disorders: such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis
👉 Fatigue: Chronic fatigue and feeling rundown
👉 Mood disorders: such as depression and anxiety
👉 Nutritional deficiencies: due to malabsorption of nutrients
👉 Hormonal imbalances: such as PMS and PCOS
If you suspect leaky gut, it's best to consult with a healthcare professional to address the root cause. We can help with proper testing and tailored recommendations to get you back to feeling your best!
Over two decades, researchers analyzed the regular dietary habits of participants, focusing on non-nutritive sweeteners like aspartame and saccharin commonly found in artificial sweeteners.
The results? Not what you would expect!
The study indicated that prolonged consumption of aspartame, saccharin, and diet beverages correlated with heightened abdominal fat and fat within muscle. The findings question recommendations by the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association that endorse substituting added sugars with artificial sweeteners. The researchers advise seeking alternative approaches due to potential health consequences associated with long-term artificial sweetener use.

Good news for those struggling with joint pain and arthritis. New research shows how tart cherries, particularly varieties like Montmorency and Balaton, can effectively combat chronic inflammation—the root of many painful conditions.
These cherries are remarkable in managing osteoarthritis, offering a natural alternative to conventional treatments. Phenolics and anthocyanins, key compounds found abundantly in tart cherries, play a pivotal role. These compounds are linked to potent antioxidant properties and a reduction in inflammation. In fact, anthocyanins from cherries exhibit effectiveness similar to typical anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen.
Consuming tart cherry juice presents a natural pain relief solution without the potential side effects often associated with arthritis medications. So, if you're seeking a delicious way to support joint health, consider introducing tart cherries!

New research now suggests that even small amounts of alcohol can have negative effects on your health. It's no wonder that many people who are now "sober-curious" report feeling increased well-being, lower rates of depressions, and better sleep when taking a step back from alcohol.
It’s easier than ever to adopt an alcohol-free lifestyle as more people take a break from drinking. And the numbers don't lie!
From 2020 to 2021, sales of non-alcoholic spirits grew 113.4%, NA beer 31.7%, and NA wines 39.4%. Industry experts say that the non-alcoholic drinks category will grow to an impressive $30 billion by 2025!

Recently, feel-good foods, or nootropics, have been trending as people look for ways to help fight depression, ward off dementia, and support brain health.
These foods contain essential nutrients, amino acids, minerals, and other chemicals that the brain uses as fuel for neurotransmission. In a nutshell, they enhance your brain’s ability to perform more effectively.
What are the best feel-good foods? Below are foods that experts recommend regularly including in your diet to help support cognitive performance:
☕️ Coffee. Your morning cup of coffee may be doing more for your brain than you think! Studies have found that consuming reduces the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disorder, and Alzheimer's disease. Just don’t forget that too much coffee can lead to anxiety in many people.
🐟 Fatty fish. This includes salmon, herring, trout, sardines, and albacore tuna, which are all high in omega-3 fatty acids. About 60% of your brain contains fat, and omega-3 fatty acids account for half of that. Consuming these fatty acids is thus a huge benefit to your brain.
🍳 Egg Yolks. Egg yolks are high in choline, a compound which produces hormones related to feelings of well-being. Choline also gets absorbed by the body and turned into a chemical called acetylcholine, which supports memory retention and establishing peaceful sleep.
🫖 Green Tea. Green tea contains L-theanine, an amino acid that has been studied for its positive effects on brain health and anxiety. People who consume a beverage containing L-theanine like green tea reported significantly lower subjective stress and decreased cortisol levels.

Ground Beef Stuffed Peppers are a nutrient dense, family favorite meal that is easy to make ahead and freezer-friendly!
6 large bell peppers
1 teaspoon salt + ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb. ground beef or ground meat of choice
½ cup yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 medium zucchini, diced
¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon soy sauce or Tamari
½ cup tomato sauce
2 cups cooked white rice or quinoa
1 + ½ cups cheddar cheese or dairy free cheese of choice, divided
Preheat oven to 375 F. Prepare the bell peppers by cutting the tops off. Remove and discard the seeds. Place the peppers on a lightly greased baking pan and lightly season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add ground beef and stir well to cook for 6-8 minutes until browned on all sides. Make sure to break up beef into small pieces to help even browning.
Stir in onion, garlic, zucchini and parsley and sauté for 1-2 minutes until tender.
Season the beef mixture with salt and pepper and stir in soy sauce and tomato sauce. Stir occasionally and bring the mixture to a simmer to help soak up the flavors, about 3 minutes.
Add in rice and ½ cup cheese and stir well to mix all evenly. Turn off heat and set the beef rice mixture aside.
Fill up each pepper with beef mixture and sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese on top.
Bake the stuffed peppers for 40-45 minutes until the pepper softens and the melted cheese turns golden brown. Let the stuffed peppers rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley on top and serve.

Combating excess belly fat goes beyond just physical discomfort; it's crucial for countering heart disease, inflammation, insulin resistance, and other chronic ailments.
Turns out, flaxseed is a potent solution to target abdominal obesity!
Packed with alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), fiber, and lignans, flaxseed's potential for reducing belly fat and central obesity has been shown in many studies. One, in particular, noted that incorporating 30 grams of milled flaxseed daily into a balanced diet has shown impressive results in managing body fat and even reduction of liver fat.
The easiest way to get your flaxseed fix - add it to your oatmeal, smoothies or baked goods!
Are you choosing egg whites for their "healthy" image? Think again! 🍳
Eating whole eggs might be the smarter choice for your overall well-being. While egg whites offer some lean protein, a single whole egg packs almost double the protein content, plus a rich array of nutrients like healthy fats, lutein, zeaxanthin, choline, selenium, and B vitamins.
The myth of ditching the yolk to improve health is unfounded. In fact, egg yolk is nutrient-dense, contributing about 40% of the egg's total protein. So, skipping the yolk could actually hinder you from meeting your protein needs.
But here's the real eye-opener: consuming only egg whites means missing out on significant benefits, such as a potential boost to testosterone levels, improved muscular strength, and even reduced body fat. 💪

As we gear up for back to work/school season, let's not forget about our hardworking wrists! 🤲 Wrist pain from excessive typing and writing is a common issue for many, and should not be ignored. Nerve compression, decreased range of motion and reduced function are just a few of the long term risks.
Here are three simple wrist stretches to keep wrist discomfort at bay:
1️⃣ Wrist Flexor Stretch: Extend one arm in front of you, palm facing down. With your other hand, gently pull your fingers back towards your body until you feel a stretch in your forearm. Hold for 15-30 seconds and repeat on the other side. This stretch helps alleviate tension from typing and writing.
2️⃣ Wrist Extensor Stretch: Similar to the previous stretch, extend one arm in front of you, palm facing up this time. Use your other hand to pull your fingers downwards until you feel a stretch in your forearm. Hold for 15-30 seconds and switch to the other hand. This stretch targets the muscles on the back of your forearm.
3️⃣ Wrist Circles: Hold your arms out in front of you, and make gentle circles with your wrists in both directions. This helps improve wrist mobility and relieves stiffness caused by repetitive movements.

September is PCOS Awareness Month, so let's shed some light on one of the most common ovulatory disorders affecting women.
The impact of PCOS on female bodies and fertility is well-documented. Elevated androgen levels in those with PCOS can disrupt egg development and ovulation, leading to fertility challenges. Irregular periods and polycystic ovaries are also common symptoms.
But there is hope! Symptom management is possible through lifestyle and dietary adjustments. Staying active, maintaining a healthy weight, and embracing a lower carbohydrate, high-protein diet can make a difference. By opting for healthy fats, quality proteins, and slow-digesting carbs, blood sugar remains stable without excessive insulin production.
If you're navigating PCOS, remember, you don't have to navigate it alone—reach out to our office for support!
What we know matters, but who we are matters more. - Brené Brown
Minerals are just as important as vitamins and our bodies require adequate levels to maintain optimal health.
Here is what we typically recommend to ensure health mineral balance in the body:
🥦A healthy diet: Eating a diet centered around whole foods (ideally, locally raised and organic) is the best way to prevent nutrient deficiency. Dark leafy greens, vegetables, fruit, nuts, legumes, and lean proteins are especially nutrient-dense, so choose these over processed foods as often as you can.
🌱Supplementation: At times, nutrient deficiencies cannot be addressed through diet alone. This is where supplements can help – your healthcare provider will determine the frequency and dosage that is best for your needs. It is important to follow these instructions because excessive intake of certain supplements can actually be harmful to your health.
😌💤🏃♀️Lower stress, sleep well, exercise! We know that stress negatively impacts the way our bodies absorb nutrients and minerals, and our bodies require adequate sleep in order to function at their best. It is important to establish healthy stress-mitigating routines into your life to ensure proper nutrient absorption. This will look different for everybody, but some suggestions are a quick walk in nature, a daily yoga practice, or even simply reading before bedtime.
Head over to our latest email if you're curious to learn more about mineral imbalances and how to prevent them!
It's time to take control of your indoor air quality and create a healthier environment for you and your loved ones. Check out these tips for reducing indoor air pollution:
1️⃣ Ditch the Non-Stick Cookware: Nonstick pans may be convenient, but they release toxic gasses that can harm your health. Opt for safer alternatives like stainless steel, cast iron, or porcelain-coated pans.
2️⃣ Choose Safer Cleaning Supplies: Many conventional cleaners contain harmful chemicals that can damage your health. Look for non-toxic cleaning products or make your own using natural ingredients like baking soda and vinegar.
3️⃣ Say No to Air Fresheners: Those sweet-smelling air fresheners are loaded with harmful chemicals that can trigger respiratory problems, reproductive issues, and even serious diseases. Instead, open windows for fresh air, use air purifiers, or try diffusing essential oils.
By making these simple changes, you'll create a healthier and toxin-free indoor environment.
Psoriasis is a complex autoimmune condition that affects the skin, causing itchy, red, and scaly patches. But did you know the link between psoriasis, gut health, and the immune system?
Psoriasis may be influenced by imbalances in gut health and our immune health. The gut bacteria play a crucial role in maintaining overall health, including the proper functioning and production of cells in our immune system. When the gut becomes imbalanced, it can trigger or exacerbate inflammatory responses throughout the body, contributing to psoriasis flare-ups.
Taking care of your gut health through a balanced diet, supplementing with probiotics, and making healthy lifestyle choices is the best place to start. Contact our office for expert guidance and strategies to optimize gut health, balance the immune system, and manage psoriasis effectively.
Naturopathic medicine takes a holistic view of weight loss, considering not just the number on the scale but also your overall well-being.

Unlike quick fixes or fad diets, we focus on addressing the root causes of weight gain and creating sustainable, long-term solutions. Your body is unique and deserves a tailored protocol to reach your health and wellness goals. If you're ready to get started, contact our office at (905) 707-2001 or schedule a consultation online.

A recent study has unveiled a new form of omega-3 fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), that has the power to prevent visual decline associated with Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, and other disorders. 👀
While boosting DHA can help to prevent declines, increasing retinal DHA content has been challenging with currently available supplements. This remarkable supplement is capable of crossing into the retina, where it maintains photoreceptors vital for sending light signals to the brain.
This breakthrough offers hope for preserving vision and combatting visual impairments associated with various health conditions.

Magnesium is a crucial mineral for many (over 300!) bodily functions. Blood pressure, proper nerve function, energy metabolism, relaxation and protein production are all impacted by magnesium levels.
But what happens if you don't get enough?
A diet low in magnesium, certain medications and chronic health conditions like alcoholism may lead to a magnesium deficiency. Early signs of this include fatigue, weakness, restlessness and nausea, and can lead to symptoms of numbness and muscle cramps.
We recommended eating magnesium-rich foods such as legumes, nuts, and leafy greens like spinach. Supplementation is also recommended, however, speak with your provider for proper guidance.
