Share a Meal

PEMF Therapy

Imagine a world where wellness wasn’t limited to exercise and nutrition, but instead harnessed the power of frequencies to enhance the body and mind. This future is now a reality, thanks to the innovative technology of
QI Coils™ and the science behind Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy.

QI Coils™ are cutting-edge devices that use PEMF therapy to promote relaxation and overall wellness. By emitting specific frequencies, these coils work to harmonize the body’s own frequency patterns, leading to a sense of calm and relaxation. They can be used as a tool for stress management and to improve sleep.

But the benefits of QI Coils™ go beyond simple relaxation. These devices are also designed to improve overall wellness, helping to boost energy levels and promote a sense of balance and inner peace. Numerous scientific studies have shown the effectiveness of PEMF therapy in promoting physical and mental well-being. One such study, published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, found that PEMF therapy improved sleep quality and reduced stress levels in participants.

So why wait for the future of wellness when you can experience it today?
QI Coils™ are easy to use and offer a natural, non-invasive approach to enhancing well-being. Whether you’re looking to reduce stress or improve your overall health, these powerful devices are the key to unlocking the true potential of frequency therapy.

Trusting Myself Fully

I invite you to take out a pen and paper and complete this sentence with your dominant hand: “If I trusted myself completely, I would do/say or make happen” ……? Then with your non-dominant hand respond: “What holds me back from fully trusting” ….? When we struggle to create or share what we truly want, it’s often because there is a missing part of ourselves lost, frozen or trapped in time. When we seek validation from those outside ourselves over the wisdom that resides within us, this leads towards 2 big compromises: 1) Seeking and chasing the need for constant approval (anxious attachment) or 2) avoiding and rejecting what we desire, so we don’t feel the disappointment and rejection (avoidant attachment). Relationships are a shared energy, the more we trust our gut knowing, the better we can trust, share and receive what we truly desire.

Medication and Nutrient Depletion

Did you know that certain medications can deplete vitamins and minerals in your body? Supplementing can help! CoEnzyme Q10 is a helpful supplement for those taking blood pressure, cholesterol and mood-related medications. Watch for a lowering of blood pressure and take these in the evening! Probiotic support is useful for those taking antibiotics, proton pump inhibitors and birth control. Most Albertans benefit from regular vitamin D3 intake but those on mood stabilizers for bipolar disorder should speak with their practitioner first. Calcium and magnesium are commonly taken minerals to help with bones and muscles but the formulation really counts – citrates may be a necessary form if taking acid suppressing medications (proton pump inhibitors) but generally, magnesium glycinate is better absorbed.
