    Electrolytes: Why Your Body Needs Them

    Magnesium is one of my favourite minerals. Our bones readily take up magnesium at a high rate, so it’s no surprise that 60% of the magnesium in your body is found in your bones. Energy production, lactic acid removal, and immune function all rely on optimal magnesium intake. Athletes deficient in dietary magnesium intake may have a significant reduction in exercise performance when compared to their peers. Excessive alcohol intake, gastrointestinal problems, anorexia, and certain medications may predispose an individual to insufficient magnesium status.

    What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

    Leaky gut is often at the root of so many other common digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, and ulcerative colitis, as well as more less severe issues like constipation, gas and bloating. In addition to contributing to gut issues, LGS can also manifest outside the gut, causing problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and a more recent association, autoimmune disease.

  5. Therapeutic lifestyle changes in controlling high cholesterol levels

    There are two kinds of cholesterol in the blood: Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), “the bad” one and High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL), "the good" one. Having a healthy diet can help in controlling cholesterol levels. A nutritionally balanced diet with a low intake of trans saturated fats, and incorporation of food sources rich in soluble fibre, and plant sterols can decrease LDL levels.

  6. Eating Healthy On A Budget Broke But Hungry

     It’s important. Every time you eat out or buy premade garbage, you outsource your food choices. You relinquish your power and give it to someone else. When you make your food at home, you have total control of what goes in your body, and that is a powerful thing. People tend to forget that. So please, get in the kitchen and start cooking!

    Weight loss and detoxification

    Used unwisely, many of those detoxification processes available in the market are doing more damage to the body than benefits and long term of use is the proof that if it was working then you will not use it again and again. Cleansing is good, but obviously a change in the lifestyle is a must.

    Five Benefits of Intermittent Fasting - Dr. Naomi Ha, N.D

    While health trends have come and gone, fasting has withstood the test of time and continues to be an effective way to optimize health. Intermittent fasting (IF), in particular, has become one of the most popular ways to incorporate fasting into our busy schedules, due to the customizability that it offers. IF can be implemented in a few different ways: 

    • Alternate day fasting: You are consuming either restricted or unrestricted calories every other day, alternating with a full day fast. 

    • Whole day fasting: You are doing a full 24-hour fast for a single day or several consecutive days. 

    • Time restricted feeding: You are limiting your window of food consumption during the day to a short period of time, 8 hours or less.

    Finding the right healthcare practitioner can be challenging. It is hard enough to find a medical doctor these days who is even accepting new patients!

Whether they are a medical doctor, specialist, naturopathic doctor, or another member of your healthcare team, I believe the following are the most important things to look for when finding yourself a healthcare practitioner.
