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.

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

When cannabis is inhaled the effects are felt quickly, peaking within 30 minutes, lasting up to 6 hours. Inhaled cannabis has a different metabolic process than when you ingest it. Ingested cannabis must first travel to your stomach then to your liver before getting into your bloodstream and brain. When eaten, the same amount of cannabis will deliver more potent effects than when inhaled. When you eat or drink cannabis, you will feel its effects within 2 hours, with full effects peaking within 4 hours and lasting up to 24 hours. Edibles have enhanced bioavailability and greater potency in comparison to inhaled cannabis.
We’ve all heard the saying we are what we eat, but do you know just how much the food we eat affects how we show up in the world? Our bodies and brains function and feel the best when we are providing them with the proper nutritious fuel. When we are eating healthier and providing our body and brain with the proper fuel we not only perform better at work, but in all aspects of our lives. Here are some easy tips to help support healthier eating habits: incorporate more fruits and veggies into your diet, plan your meals and write a grocery list (and stick to the list!), and prepare some meals ahead of time so you have healthy options available for those times when you don’t feel like cooking.
Why not create beauty in the face of adversity and uncertainty? See raw vulnerability as the courage to be fully acknowledged and understood. Allow yourself the permission to listen to your body’s wisdom and hear what it yearns to share. How can I allow my heart to open wider, create more space and release all that is no longer required? Each moment you are presented with the choice to fully show up, be brave and courageously walk through the threshold of fear, pain, and uncomfortable situations. Or we can choose to run, hide, and lock the doors, freezing into our pain and power. I will hold space and deep prayer as you choose your vital life force!
The liver is an extremely complex organ that performs over 500 different functions in the body, including manufacturing hormones and proteins, fighting infections, and controlling blood sugar. There are over 100 forms of liver disease that have many causes, including viral infection, genetics, drugs and toxins, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and obesity. Liver disease can affect men, women, and children of any age, and can cause toxins to build up in the body, liver scarring, blood clotting issues, and even liver cancer. How healthy is your liver? It may be time to consider a liver detox!
When we think about eating better, we often think about what we must take out of our diet – usually the things we like most! What if, instead of starting with a mindset of restriction, we start with a mindset of abundance? What if we were to focus on adding foods in, rather than removing them? This is a suggestion I regularly share with my clients and a first step that many find easy to do. Here are the top 10 foods I recommend adding as part of the Do Diet: fruit, green tea, dark chocolate, omega-3 fats, nuts & seeds, mushrooms, plain Greek yogurt, avocado, olives, and sweet potato.
