Disability Tax Credit Eligibility

The Disability Tax Credit (DTC) eligibility hinges on three primary impairment categories, each with its own criteria: Physical Impairments. Mental Illness and Psychological Impairments. Neurological Impairments. Simply having a certified medical condition within these categories doesn’t guarantee DTC eligibility. Qualification depends on impairment severity and its impact on “Activities of Daily Living.”

September is Arthritis Awareness Month

According to Stats Canada over 37% of Canadians over the age of 20 have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, mainly affecting hips and knees. This is the wear and tear condition due to breakdown of cartilage between the joints leading to pain and stiffness. Along with typical Naturopathic treatments, another beneficial treatment modality is Cold Laser, which uses light wavelengths to stimulate new energy production leading to restoration of normal function by increasing blood flow, nervous stimulation, and new cell growth. These treatments are non-invasive, painless and can be done a few times a week to stimulate that healing process.

Exercise: Hair’s Vital Growth Booster

Embracing a dynamic lifestyle not only invigorates your body but also cultivates a lush crown of healthy hair. Regular exercise acts as a catalyst for robust hair maintenance and growth. As you engage in physical activity, blood circulation surges, ensuring a steady supply of essential nutrients and oxygen to hair follicles. This nourishment fortifies roots, promoting resilience and vitality. Additionally, exercise balances hormone levels, which directly impact hair health. So, whether you’re sweating it out in the gym or enjoying a revitalizing jog, every movement contributes to the foundation of radiant and strong hair. Make exercise a cornerstone of your routine for a vibrant mane that shines with health.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural, safe, and effective method to help you gain control over undesired behavior and affects positive change in every aspect of your life. Hypnosis is achieved by the intentional creation of deep state of relaxation, which allows your subconscious to become highly responsive to suggestion. While in “Hypnosis” you are completely awake and in a state of heightened awareness. All progresses and changes come from within you. As your therapist, I do not control you. I simply guide you. I guide you through the process, which can empower you to create the change you desire.

Inflammation: Good, Bad, or Both?

Inflammation is a crucial aspect of the body’s healing process, wherein inflammatory cells journey to injury sites, prompting recovery. Yet, chronic inflammation signs can be elusive – examples include abdominal and chest pain, fatigue, fever, joint discomfort, and stiffness (like in rheumatoid arthritis), as well as mouth sores and skin rashes (as in psoriasis). Turmeric presents a natural solution for pain and inflammation. Notably, curcumin, an extract of turmeric, is renowned for its potent anti-inflammatory properties, effectively alleviating pain, and dampening inflammation. Regarded as one of the most robust botanical anti-inflammatories, Good Habits Market takes pride in offering prime curcumin varieties, available as liposomal soft gels, or liquid.
