Prevent and Treat Iron Deficiency

1.85 million Canadians suffer from iron deficiency*.
To ensure that you aren’t one of those, speak to your healthcare provider to ensure that you are meeting your iron needs. Iron is found in specific food sources, however if you are not meeting your iron requirements, iron supplements are available. There’s a once daily dosing option with the highest amount of elemental heme iron, and better gastrointestinal tolerability available. You no longer have to suffer from the well-known side effects of iron supplements or take 2-3 capsules a day. Cheers to the Power of One.

Toxins in the Home

Our homes are filled with hidden toxins – kitchen and bathroom cleaners, bleach, ammonia, carpet shampoos, and this is only the beginning. They are absorbed through our skin and lungs as we “clean”. Our children and pets spend much of their time on that floor that was just cleaned with a chemical cleaner, which gets ingested or absorbed through their skin. Bleach and ammonia leave a toxic residue and hazardous fumes. There are natural alternatives available for all our cleaning needs! Kick the chemicals out of your home and use a natural, concentrated citrus product like Orange TKO that is very effective and versatile, smells great and costs less to use! – Lona Larter, www.tkoorange.com

The Miracle of Everyday Loving

Try shutting your eyes after reading this editorial and think of a person in your life who loved you with their whole heart and made an impact and difference in your life. Now keep that warm feeling alive inside your heart and let it radiate through your whole body creating a chamber of compassion and love. Allow any doubt, worry or negativity to melt and dissolve in that chamber.

When we choose to love ourselves and others it transforms our world one person at a time.

How’s Your Immunity? How’s Your Gut Health?

Colonies of good bacteria live inside our gut and help us to properly digest food and absorb nutrients, and they play a big role in overall immunity. However, these colonies can become depleted, and the decrease of these colonies can negatively affect the entire digestive system and result in constipation, abdominal discomfort, and suboptimal health. Good bacteria can become depleted for a number of reasons, including illness, gastric or intestinal absorption disorders, autoimmune diseases, chronic alcohol use, poor diet, antibiotic use, and the misuse of certain medications such as laxatives. VitaDophilus® is a convenient, effective way to naturally help support healthy gut flora.

PPE for Everyday Use

When it comes to your health and safety, it’s best to choose the right personal protective equipment (PPE). Use FDA/CDC-approved, hypoallergenic masks that are ideally three layers (with one of those layers being a vapor block). They should also have very low breathing resistance, an integrated nose bridge, and high filtration capacity. A high-quality fingertip pulse oximeter is an easy and inexpensive way to check your oxygen levels at home, which can help you monitor for low levels that may be a concern. Finally, ensure you are using hand sanitizer that has been approved by Health Canada.

We Shall Overcome

Life brings us many highs and lows. It is important to know that bad things can happen to you, but that you can still succeed. Part of any successful plan is to set goals, work hard and deal with challenges in a healthy way. As much as we all want to do that, there may be unresolved grief, hiding down in our conscience or even unconscientious mind, holding us back. Our job is to face this grief, feel the emotion and process it. There are ways to heal from these bad situations, no matter how bad they are. It has been written that we are beautifully and wonderfully made, and when given the right tools to be resilient, we can indeed overcome!

How Much Should I Eat?

In our modern-day environment where food is readily available it can be challenging to maintain a healthy weight. One tool that can help is the hunger-fullness scale. With this technique think of your hunger and fullness as a scale from 1 to 10, where 1 is starving, the hungriest you can imagine being; and 10 is uncomfortably, painfully stuffed. Ideally you want to eat when your hunger is between a 3 and 4 and stop when your fullness is between a 7 and 8. The beauty of this tool is that no foods are off limits. Eat what you enjoy to comfortably satisfied.

What’s Causing Your Symptoms?

Bioresonance therapy can be used as a complementary tool in healthcare alongside conventional medical techniques. While conventional medicine answers the ‘what’ of a condition or disease, bioresonance therapy can go further to help answer the ‘why’. It does so by looking at the root cause of the illness or condition using a more holistic approach. For example, it’s possible for bioresonance therapy to detect stress in the body that may not be revealed by things like blood tests. Rather than looking at a single issue or symptom, bioresonance therapy considers the patient as a whole, using non-invasive and drug-free techniques.
