POTTY TALK: A great tip for your “office” visits.

By | Food for thought | No Comments

Warning this BLOG contains potty talk, and a new way to drastically improve your HEALTH!  Are you prone to constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel, or bloating? Did you know that people in cultures that squat instead of using toilets rarely have these symptoms? Rather than putting a hole in your floor, try elevating your feet in the bathroom. I figured this out when I was a young child and have used various devices including stacked phone books, a small box and a step stool. There are also devices like the ‘squatty potty.’   I LOVE mine- what difference it does make, and the children use it also. Try out this easy trick and great product to make your bathroom trips faster and easier. http://www.squattypotty.com/

There are seven main energy centers (chakras) of the body. These chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others. Using the seven colours of the spectrum, Color Therapy aims to balance and enhance our body’s energy centres/chakras and also to help stimulate our body’s own healing process.  Color Therapy uses colour to re-balance the Chakras that have become depleted of energy.

Protein Power

By | Food for thought, Wellness | No Comments

This one is for all the calorie counters out there: Did you know that your body is probably already doing the math and tally for you?  Researchers at the University of Sydney found that appetite may be closely linked to the balance of nutrients in the diets, rather than the calories consumed.  The key here being PROTEIN.  For example when we do not get enough protein we will eat until our protein stores are met.  And here is the rule of thumb in regards to how much protein each person needs.  For optimal function multiply 0.7 X your body weight (0.7 X 120 pounds = 84 grams of protein).  And if you are active or an athlete you need to bump that up to 0.9 x body weight (0.9 x 120 = 108 grams).  This is personalized medicine for YOU- what YOUR body needs in protein daily.  So are you getting your adequate protein stores?  Could this be the reason you might be struggling to lose weight or feel more energy in your daily life?

Praise for Green Tea

By | Food for thought | No Comments

Green tea has a long history of use, having been first brewed in China back in 2737 BC. Its major active component—epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCg) —is one of the most extensively studied polyphenols, and a wide body of research backs up what East Asian grandmothers have known for generations: a few cups a day might not keep the doctor away, but their beneficial effects on health might make the doctor’s job a little easier.With carbohydrate intolerance and eventual development of metabolic syndrome being tied to an ever-increasing number of downstream health issues, patients can always use another natural tool in their arsenal to help manage blood glucose and insulin levels. Considering these, and other potential health impacts, why not have access to a tool whose main side-effects are a pleasant flavor and the possible calming and relaxing effects of L-theanine?
