How Women Grow, Heal & Thrive

I’m hearing a message loud & clear, from women in Guelph + globally. Smart, conscious, inspiring woman, I hear that you want more energy so you can achieve more in your family and work life, more clarity so you can be productive, present and passionate like you know you’re here to be, and more ease and joy in your life so you can enjoy your family and personal time.

Detox Your Medicine Cabinet! Top 10 Natural Home Remedies for Women

Guide to top 10 remedies women's health expert

Above all, I went into naturopathic medicine as a way to help people to help themselves. I believe that health care should involve as much teaching self-awareness and empowering self-care as it does treating and alleviating symptoms. As my work with women and families continues to grow and evolve, my philosophy has only deepened as I experience awe, respect and joy on a daily basis as I watch our community begin to shift, heal and thrive.

Some symptoms that an individual may experience from this include poor digestion, something that a large percentage of the population suffers from. … Read More

5 Ways to Prepare for Your Best Birth

Birth Preparation Doula

By Christa VanderVelde, Doula   The average couple does more research and preparation before purchasing a new vehicle than they do before giving birth. This is understandable. With all the information available to parents, preparing for birth can be more overwhelming than magical. As a Doula, I am passionate about helping parents sort through the information available to them and decide what is most important for birth preparation. So this month I sat down and compiled my favourite ways to prepare for your best birth. 1 – Address Your Assumptions More important than choosing a care provider or understanding your options, (we will get there), is addressing your assumptions. Ask yourself, “What do I believe about my body?” A negative self imagine … Read More
