Time for a Spring Tune Up
With spring just around the corner, many people are starting to feel more positive about the weather and sunshine. Better weather means improved mood and health. In the winter people tend to consume more root vegetables, prepackaged foods and imported produce. This lends itself to weight gain and lower energy levels.
Ancient traditions and North American Indians have historically engaged in detoxification or purification rituals at every change of season to help improve the health of the body and mind. It is no wonder that this tradition lives on with many health conscious people due to its rejuvenating properties.
Our society is exposed to more toxins in our environment than ever. In the past heavy metals were our main concern, now children are showing up with pesticides and plastic chemical compounds in their systems. Many of us just don't feel as well as we should. There is a reason that many stars such as Demi Moore and Gyneth Paltrow like to do periodic detox diets to stay slim and feel great.
Much research has found that environmental toxins are hazardous to our health. Each year 4 billion pounds of chemicals are released into our environment in the form of chemicals and pollutants from plastics, pesticides, heavy metals, and other sources. We are exposed to them in our water, air, soil, food and dust every day. Over time a build up of these toxins will affect the quality of our life in certain ways, such as in the symptoms listed above.
Herein is a quick questionnaire to determine if you you need to detox.
Do you have any of the following symptoms? Please answer yes or no.
Dark Circles under eyes
Ringing in ears
Use of aspirin and pain killers
Fibromyalgia symptoms or muscle aches
Use of birth control pills
Key: If you answered yes to any of the following you may need to detoxify your body for it to run at its peak efficiancy.
There are ways to stimulate your body to clear out these toxins and help you feel energized and great while doing so. Typical organs of elimination are the liver, kidneys, intestinal tract, skin and lymph. Think of it as a spring cleaning for your body to get your system jazzed up and ready to work at its peak efficiency. Not all detox programs are healthy; your body needs key nutrients and support to release toxins, so water fasting or juicing is not the right way to go. Many people try and detox and do not support the different phases of detoxification and just allow toxins into the blood stream and feel worse than when they started.
We have an exciting new program at the clinic. It is a 10 day cleanse that supports your body in detoxing by using targeted nutrition that aids your organs in excreting toxins. Our program includes a kit that supports drainage of the liver, kidneys and lymph. It outlines a "clean eating" plan and gentle exercises. At the end of the 10 day program you will lose weight, feel energized, have fewer aches and pains, have a more stable mood, and have clearer eyes, skin and tongue.

Three Topics We are Asked About Daily in the Clinic
CBD Oil Daily I am asked what I think of the use of CBD oil or medicinal marijuana. We do not sell or prescribe this product. However, from verbal reports from patients, it seems to work very well for pain relief, sleep and epilepsy.
For painful conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia, CBD oil seems to be very effective. CBD oil does not repair the joints, injuries or the body but does help with pain relief. Some people find a small amount of CBD with THC helps as a sedative for sleep. Compared to opioid drugs, CBD oil is a much safer choice for pain relief. In the clinic, we recommend our clients continue working on improving and repairing the body's systems from the inside out through proper diet, nutritional supplements and homeopathy. This way in time less pain relievers are required.
Reports from my client base who have tried CBD oil for cancer, did not find it as beneficial as marketing had promised.
Reported draw backs are their cost, availability and side effects such as CBD are dry mouth, mental fog, dizziness and fatigue.
Keto Diet This a an extremely low carbohydrate diet focusing on fats. It is a very helpful diet for people with epilepsy.
People who are diabetic and struggle with weight loss often are interested in this diet.
Our take on this diet, is that in epileptics it is quite beneficial. In the short term it helps to get weight off. This diet is very restrictive and hard to maintain. It is hard for those who have suffered from gallstones. It is a very nutritionally deficient due to a reduction in fruits and vegetables in order to keep carb intake lower.
We do support clients who do this diet, offering nutritional support and once they lose weight, moving to a more moderate type of diet that includes more fruits and veggies.
Side effects from this diet are hair loss, dry skin, mouth and eyes, constipation, headache, nausea, trembling, dehydration, bad breath, fatigue, low electrolytes and heart palpitations. In some cases of long term keto dieting people may suffer from osteoporosis, high cholesterol and kidney damage.
Vaccinations Our take on vaccinations is that we respect the wishes of our client. We no longer can council people on vaccination alternatives due to our regulation in Ontario.
We do recognize that vaccinations usually are no problem for most but some of our clients do tend to seek council for post vaccine illnesses.
Please note the clinic will be having holidays on the days listed below. Should you need any refills please give us ample notice.
Mon June 10th to return on June 24th.
In July 2019 the clinic will be closed for three weeks for professional development courses.
