Keto ‘The Right Way’

Trying to figure out how to go into nutritional ketosis can be a daunting task. There’s so much information on the internet that can cause confusion, and it can be incredibly time consuming. You likely have questions like: What should my calories be? Which foods should I eat and how much? What are macros? Why do they matter to my results? Instead of trying to figure it all out yourself, why not hire a Certified Keto Coach who can answer your questions and create a specialized plan for you? She takes out all of the guess work, allowing you to simply get results in far less time.

Lost Your Marbles?

One of the most common types of dizziness is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), which can cause the sensation of spinning, vertigo, nausea and/or imbalance that lasts for seconds or minutes. These symptoms are triggered by head movements or rolling over in bed. This is caused by calcium carbonate crystals (ear rocks, small marbles) inside the inner ear moving to areas where they don’t belong. A qualified physiotherapist uses specific maneuvers of moving the head into certain positions to return these crystals back to the chamber where they should be. These treatments are very effective in most cases.

Cleaning with Hypochlorous Acid

Studies have shown that hypochlorous acid (HOCL) is an effective disinfectant and sanitizer that can be used in public places and homes to protect against a broad range of microorganisms. It’s also simple to make with just 1/2 gram of salt and 1 ml of vinegar added to water, which is then electrolyzed. The neutral charge of HOCL helps burst the cells of harmful microorganisms, and also helps it remove dirt and grease effectively. Recent research trials have shown that HOCL could also potentially be effective at killing the SARS-2-Covid virus on surfaces and within the body.

Supporting Someone with Depression

Chances are you know someone who is struggling with depression and want to know how to help them. Here are some things you can do to offer support: 1) Validate their condition and let them feel heard. 2) Avoid telling them to think positively or shaming them. Instead, try to focus on positive things in your conversations with them. 3) Encourage them to adhere to their medication schedule, since it can take time for medications to work. 4) Suggest that they keep a journal to write about their feelings and keep track of medication progress and their mood.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) is a great supplemental tool to conventional breast imaging and for general health maintenance. This safe, non-invasive therapy looks at changes in physiology based on temperature patterns and can be started in early adulthood to create a baseline and monitor for changes over time. Bodily temperature patterns should be symmetrical, so anomalies can indicate inflammation or metabolic process changes. Results can then be used to delve deeper and pursue more anatomical testing, or to monitor a known condition over time, as further subtle changes in physiology might occur before any changes in anatomy.
