I will be taking today off to reflect on the actions I can take to help the cause of reconciliation in this country.

Most people don't know this; but I could have lost my own infant son in a three year custody battle with his father in a foreign country 25+ years ago. I was fortunate enough to have family who could afford legal help, but I remember the agonizing fear of separation, and can only imagine the unfathomable trauma of whole communities of children being taken away.
We have to fix this, Canada. But first, we need to recognize the harm that was done.

It's been a long year, wouldn't it be great to see some bright colours in your kitchen again?

Many community members have asked about sharing holiday treats with staff at Kingston Health Sciences Centre and Providence Care. Unfortunately, KHSC and Providence Care cannot accept ANY shared food items this year (including tins of homemade cookies, boxes of chocolates, gift baskets, etc.) due to strict infection control measures related to COVID-19.

UHKF and its hospital partners are encouraging the community to thank staff and departments with an Honour Your Caregiver certificate.

This is a wonderful way to say “thank you” and provide much-needed funding for equipment, education, research, facilities and more.

Attended an excellent virtual workshop on medical #fertilityawareness this weekend.

Learned that when it comes to cycle tracking apps, it’s crucial to know that not all of them are trustworthy! Ask a FACTS pro for help-

Women want #Fertility apps that are based on the evidence! Yet, so many apps are not rooted in science. Do you know the facts?

Attendees at our 2020 FACTS Virtual Conference are learning the latest and you can too, by joining us for a future FACTS talk!

The centre will re-open tomorrow at 9:00 a.m.

We also ask, that if you plan on attending tomorrow, please do not arrive or line up in your car before that time in order to prevent a backlog in service.

We know how hard it is for family members who are unable to visit their loved one in hospital due to COVID-19 restrictions.

That's why #KHSC has put a Virtual Visit program in place. If your loved one does not have their own cell phone or tablet to make a video call from the hospital using our free wireless Internet access, they can alternatively request to borrow an iPad by speaking with staff or emailing [email protected]. Virtual Visits can be initiated by the patient, anyone connected to the patient or a care provider within the hospital.

We hope this helps you stay connected with your loved one in hospital. Please visit www.KingstonHSC.ca/COVID19 to read our full family presence policy during this pandemic, and thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work together to slow the spread.

Not all NDs practice the same way or believe the same things about what constitutes best clinical practice. I believe in science informed care and Lifestyle Medicine that uses good, basic clinical interventions to achieve the best results with people’s health.

This page often will post links to new blog posts, as well as comment on recent studies or information about aspects of Lifestyle Medicine, Women’s Health and Restorative Fertility, Whole Food/Plant Based eating and Healthy Aging, among other topics. Some of my blog posts might even be book reviews of books I’m reading and find helpful or interesting (I’m not going to review the ones I don’t--life is too short). There are often good studies out there that help us look at things in a different way; you just sometimes have to sift through the ‘noise’ and that is what I try to do here. That being said, I don’t respond to trolls.

I have a Lifestyle Med based practice in Kingston, ON and also run the Canadian ND Association journal Vital Link out of Toronto. By reading a wide variety of current work in the ND sphere, and researching topics for future editions, I’m constantly learning new and useful information that may be helpful to all followers of this page--patients and non-patients like.

A little more about me: I’ve worked with family physicians, medical specialists, and allied health professionals in a variety of settings across Canada for 15+ years and I’m collaborative in my approach. I’m also a big supporter of Public Health, including routine immunizations for children and adults. Wherever possible, I also try to incoroporate trauma based understanding and care into my clinical practice.
