Spring Cleaning

Happy Spring! The days are getting longer, the sun is shining and flowers are in bloom! With the changing of Winter into Spring comes the perfect time to do a little Spring Cleaning. Open those windows that have been shut all winter long, clean out the old and welcome in the new!

Ancient Medicine For a Healthy Today

As a Naturopathic Doctor I have many treatment modalities at my finger tips such as acupuncture, nutritional counselling, therapeutic supplements, Bowen therapy or homeopathy.  But one of my favourite modalities has to be Herbal Medicine.  Plants have been used medicinally since the dawn of time and continue to play an important role in health today. 

Natural Medicine Controversies in the Media

It seems as though every other day there is a new study telling us that another vitamin, herb or supplement is dangerous for our health or just doesn’t work.  And without fail, over the next few weeks my patients come to me asking if they should stop taking their supplements.  There is no simple answer to this question because sometimes the research is valid, but more often than not, there are serious flaws not only in the research, but even more so in the way that the media has reported the new information.  Controversy sells!

Moroccan Chicken

While thinking about what to make for dinner tonight on this sunny and crisp Fall day, I thought this would be a good time to share one of my favourite Fall Flavours recipes. So grab a cozy sweater, put on the kettle and enjoy this yummy recipe (given to me by my sister Chelsea Peddle, flavour creator extraordinaire!)

Summer Recipe: 3 Bean & Quinoa Salad

Sumptuous Summer Selections
It looks as though summer will be sticking around for a while, so I thought I’d do my part to encourage it to stay.  Soon we will be moving into Fall and transitioning from summer salads and iced drinks to simmering stews and steaming cups of tea.  So let’s make the most of this late summer and enjoy all it has to offer until we start to cozy up in our warm sweaters.  As this is a networking blog and a health and wellness blog, my contribution this month will be to nourish our busy brains and bodies so that we are ready to take on the entrepreneurial world with gusto!

Here is one of my favourite summer recipes, enjoy!
