Infertility Awareness Week

April 24-30th is National Infertility Awareness Week. The mission is to change the conversation around infertility. There are myths and misinformation that create barriers for people who need help to build their families. We want people to feel comfortable sharing their stories in a community that cares so that they don’t feel isolated and struggle. The color orange is used for infertility awareness. Orange promotes a sense of wellness and emotional energy. Let’s increase activity for this important week and remind those in our community that we are there for them during the disappointments, broken hearts, or wounded pride.

April is Oral Health Month

Oral health is important for everyone, including denture wearers. Gum disease, dental decay, and tooth loss are some of the main problems that denture wearers experience, so it is important to take good care of your gums, any remaining natural teeth, and to keep your partial or complete denture(s) clean and properly fitted! If gums, natural teeth, partials, and complete dentures are not cleaned properly, you are likely to experience a build-up of plaque, leading to bad breath, cavities, gum disease and further tooth loss. Denturists and dental hygienists play an integral role in the maintenance of your oral health. Be sure to book an appointment today.

Tips from Your Physiotherapist

Spring is in the air and summer is right around the corner! It is the time to start planting flowers, veggies, and fruit. Planting and digging in your garden require you to be on the ground and mostly on your knees. Simply using a knee cushion will help take the hard tension off your knees and legs and keep the strain off your back. Always try to take breaks and stand up to give your back a stretch. This will straighten up your spine and prevent your body from being sore and tight the next day. Most importantly, enjoy the sun!

Live With No Regrets

Living without regrets means stepping out of your comfort zone. Accessing your bold braveness, taking a chance and trying something new, not letting fear hold you back. The 5 main regrets people have when reviewing their lives are: 1) Wishing they hadn’t worked so hard. 2) Having the courage to live a life truer to themselves, instead of what other’s expected of them. 3) Expressing their true feelings more often. 4) Staying in touch with friends. 5) Doing the things and decisions that would have made them happier. Which areas in your life are you ready to liberate and live for more fully?

What is Fertility Coaching?

Fertility Coaching is for people who have struggled with the path to parenthood. Fertility can come with stressors and a Coach can help while you find clarity for the hard questions you face along the way. A Fertility Coach supports the whole person and will be by your side with any emotional effects or to assist with lifestyle changes. You will become a healthier, stronger person and feel more in control. Having someone experienced and knowledgeable to walk the journey with you for at least 3-months improves wellbeing and increases the odds of conceiving, but at any stage will work.

Good Nutrition & Digestion = Good Health

No matter how clean, organic, and healthy you eat, if your body isn’t able to digest, absorb, and process essential nutrients properly, you are not benefitting from your efforts.
To do this, your stomach needs to fully digest, your intestines need to completely absorb, and your liver needs to properly process the food you eat.
One of the simplest ways to correct and improve any issue you may have with the digestive process is through nutritional testing.
If a weakness is found in a specific organ, nutritional supplementation can be added to your diet to improve the digestive process and in turn, help you benefit from your wise choices.
