Losing 20lb is Easier Than You Think With a Nutritionist

Patient stories from Tanya Schultz, Holistic Nutritionist   As a holistic nutritionist, I often find that clients need help correcting digestive and intestinal issues. A common intestinal problem is Candidiasis, or Candida. Tracy was a client I addressed these issues with to assist in her weight loss goal. Sick of yo-yo dieting, she wanted to lose 20 pounds and keep them off. Our first focus was on digestion, a key factor in health goals such as weight loss. It’s crucial to have the digestive system in good working order first and...

Training for a Half Marathon with Network Chiropractic Care

I love running. I love the freedom of starting my exercise regime as soon as I leave the house. It’s also a gratifying way to explore Toronto’s neighbourhoods in a way I would never have the patience for while commuting from place to place. I used to run regularly – my favourite route was through the Wychwood Park neighbourhood and around Casa Loma. That is, until I got injured. One day, I ran too far too fast after a brief hiatus with a worn out pair of old running shoes and I got a major case of shin splints. Running was never the same...

Dancing Chipmunks

“I know dance is good medicine for me at these times. Especially at these times.” – Cate Laurier I started my dance “career” as a dancing chipmunk in an elementary school production of The Sound of Music. That was because I didn’t get selected for the chorus, which is what I’d really craved. After recovering from the disappointment, I found myself backstage in a precocious moment of Zen clarity. I chose to dive in fully.“Well gosh darn, I’ll be the best dancing chipmunk I can possibly be”. I danced my heart out. It was...

Despite her busy schedule, she made gratitude her daily priority. It allowed her to enjoy the simple moments in life, when money nor fame brought her happiness. And her life became more aligned with her vision. You can read...

Preventions for Low Back Injuries

Throughout the day, we bend our back more often than we should. Whether we realize it or not, bending our back has slowly become a normal habit in our daily lives. Many activities cause our backs to curl improperly; from picking something up to slouching in a chair. However, too much bending of the back can increase the risk of a low back injury. The damage caused to a spine from excessive bending can be compared to the bending of a tree branch: where a branch would snap – a spine would be injured. In order to prevent these injuries, there...
