Stress Handling With Bioenergetics

Supply chain shortages, new restrictions, inflation – these are just a few of the distressing things that we are bombarded with every day. Add to that, the “normal” stresses of daily life, and there is no doubt that even the strongest can feel overwhelmed. Unmanaged, stress contributes to many health issues such as anxiety, exhaustion, insomnia, depression, and a weak immune system. An alternative approach such as Bioenergetics is highly effective in handling stress. It detects imbalances, or weaknesses, in the stress handling areas of the body, and in turn, stimulates the affected areas to help the mind and body process and handle stress better.

The Science Behind Acupuncture

What does science have to say about acupuncture? In a 2012 publication of Jama/Internal Medicine, a meta-analysis of nearly 18,000 randomized patients provided the most robust evidence to date that acupuncture is a reasonable referral option for patients with chronic pain like non-specific back or neck pain, shoulder pain, chronic headache, musculoskeletal disorders, and osteoarthritis. Another study published in a 2013 issue of The Clinical Journal of Pain involving 1,139 patients showed that acupuncture may be more effective than medication for symptom improvement in lower back pain. Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy when performed by a certified acupuncturist.

CBD and THC – Know the Difference

Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for creating a state of homeostasis in the body by regulating various functions. THC and CBD offer similar health benefits – increasing energy, providing an overall sense of wellness, decreased discomfort, or an improved mental state. However, CBD can be taken without becoming inebriated, THC on the other hand can cause a feeling of intoxication due to the euphoric effects on the brain. Both THC and CBD are extracted from cannabis plants. Knowing these differences will help you make well-informed decisions when purchasing cannabis products.

4 Foods for a Better Mood

When you’re reaching for your next snack or meal, consider the contents and how they impact your emotional state.

Now more than ever it’s important to maintain a clean and healthy home. The good news is that you don’t have to rely on bleach and harsh chemicals to kill germs, viruses, and bacteria! Using purpose-built products can effectively disinfect your home the safe and proper way.

Changing a Habit

When we free ourselves of an addiction or habit that we no longer need or desire, it requires a clear vision alongside a plan and a boat load of self-compassion & patience. As we break free from what holds us hostage, we discover an uncomfortable in-between place where we must dwell and move through without giving into the urge. Most habits are not conscious and are built on behaviours that helped us avoid or numb feelings, making stopping uncomfortable for a period of time as they emerge. Our bodies, heart and mind needs time to adjust to a new way of being as we create healthier behaviours to put into its place to thrive.

Check Your Child’s Posture

Kids spend about 33 hours on screens each week, found a study that surveyed more than 1,400 parents. Now look at their posture when they are looking at their devices. They often assume this gargoyle like pose for hours. Though it may seem like they are just wasting time, they are also damaging their spine. The Canadian Society of Pediatrics state infants aged 0-2 years should not have any exposure to technology, 3-5 years be restricted to one hour per day, and 6-18 years restricted to two hours per day. See a chiropractor for a gentle adjustment to get your child’s spine back in properly alignment.
