Emily is such a wonderful teacher and communicator. We as practitioners here, had the opportunity on our virtual meeting the other day to have a little taste of a session with her. I highly recommend working with her. If you have questions before booking in for the 8 week program, don't hesitate to reach out to the clinic to set up a time to speak with her and learn about what you might expect in the program. 613-798-1000

Naturopathic Doctors: Star Players on Your Health Care Team

A little something I did to spread the word on Naturopathic Doctors and our wonderful medicine. Thought to share it, for Naturopathic Medicine Week.

Dr. Vivienne Guy, ND and board chair of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, answers some common questions about naturopathic medicine.

This week is Naturopathic Medicine Week.
05/17/2021

This week is Naturopathic Medicine Week.

Did you know: NDs are important members of the healthcare team and serve thousands of Canadians? There are over 2,400 licensed NDs across Canada, graduates from one of Canada’s naturopathic medical programs. NDs are receiving greater recognition as part of a patient’s healthcare team as more people are seeking and benefitting from naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic therapies used in combination with conventional methods can fill a gap in healthcare and present a whole-person solution.

Prepping for a patient today, and one of the things I always look for is what medication a person is taking, and what possible nutrients might be depleted as a result. This is not to begin a conversation about getting off of those meds, but to ensure that as long as they are taking the meds, they are simply taking the supplements at the same time.

Some quick examples: NOT MEDICAL ADVICE : Speak with your health care provider for your own specifics.
If someone is on a Statin, they will need CoQ10
If on Metformin, they should be taking B12
If on Blood Pressure Medications that are ACE inhibitors, they should be paying attention to their Zinc levels.
Sometimes some other medications may mean that you need less of a certain supplement. ex Zinc competes with some antibiotics, making them less effective.

My point in this post, is that everyone's nutritional status is unique and there are things such as interactions and depletions to consider.
My recommendation ....speak with your health care provider and discuss YOUR individual situation.

Stay well!

Razi Berry Vitamin D and estrogen have already shown well-documented results in improving bone health in women.

More than 80 per cent of hospitalized COVID-19 patients had vitamin D deficiency: study

Hey. Please check out your vitamin D levels. A simple blood test. Lots of talk around that and COVID, but also a strong connection to so much more.
Muscle or joint pain, low mood, frequent infections, itchy skin, hair loss. Come and lets see if we can find a cause.

More than 80 per cent of COVID-19 patients at a hospital in Spain had a vitamin D deficiency, according to a new study.

Did you manage to do the work, feed the family and hold down the fort while your own self care efforts fell away? High five yourself, you made it! Is the idea of doing more, or managing daily self care overwhelming still? I will remind you that You CAN make it out of
the house, maybe hair and make up isn't done, but you will GET THERE! I invite you to come see me for acupuncture. It is an amazing medicine that allows me to treat multiple systems at the same time. Have digestive issues, and also can't sleep, no problem, I have a plan for that. All you need to do is manage to get to the clinic (who cares if your hair is brushed) and I'll take care of the rest. Call the clinic at 613-798-1000 or find the online booking at www.oihc.ca

Was the best thing you could do over the last number of months, to get out of bed? No problem, that was good enough and congrats for managing it, even if it was only "most days". Now I invite you to make a move for yourself, to rediscover yourself. For your psychological wellbeing, it is time to dust yourself off, give yourself a little shake to reach out. Let's talk about how the varied symptoms of a stress response may have impacted you. Let's fix up your low energy, improve your mood, stop your bowels acting all crazy, and help to relieve any pain you may be experiencing.

Acupuncture reduces hot flashes, night sweats in menopause

Did you know that I offer a wide variety of therapies to help with hot flashes. Check out this study on the benefits of acupuncture and menopausal symptoms.

Compared with no treatment, a course of acupuncture treatments is linked with significant reduction in hot flashes and night sweats in menopausal women.

Stay moving to stay healthy.

How are you getting moving today? I've been bouncing up and down. Not as capable as my boy...but who knows what I'll be doing after another few weeks of staying home. (Who am I kidding....I'll never get to this)

It is sunny and fresh out this morning. Open your windows and let the clean air in.
