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. Health Begins At Home Day to day lifestyle habits. Micro choices. Easily integratable changes over time. That’s how we powerfully transform our experience of life for ourselves and those we love. Sometimes you need guidance to get you past where you’re “stuck”. For minor … Read More

How to Avoid a C-Section: What Do Doulas Do?

prenatal course alternative integrative holistic natural

When I began working with women and children as a naturopathic medical student, I decided to become a doula when the connection between childbirth and trauma became a common thread among my patients and friends.

And it inspired me to hear of colleagues who had become doulas and were supporting other women to have the kinds of birthing experiences they wanted and deserved. As a naturopathic doctor, I’m trained to see your health holistically, in the context of the many influences on health both in the present and past. Your health history predates your birth, (in fact your health history predates your … Read More

Can Hallowe’en Be Fun AND Healthy?

Boo! This time of year, parents of kids with foods sensitivities have more to be frightened of than the ghouls and goblins haunting their neighbourhoods. I got a scare myself when I heard on a CBC news report that our American neighbours spend over $4 billion on Hallowe’en candy every year – that’s more than they spend on costumes and decorations! That’s the annual GDP of Prince Edward Island (our country’s smallest province, but still – all the money generated by an entire province in a year!) Considering that candy is dirt-cheap, that’s one creepy, very expensive mountain of high-fructose corn syrup and plastic packaging. We can’t be too proud up here in Canada as we celebrate Hallowe’en in exactly the … Read More
