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 foremost when embarking on a nutritional makeover. Tracy...

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 after that.

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 exhilarating. What I learned in my 15 seconds of fame...

Enjoy Life Better with a Gratitude Journal

“I know for sure that appreciating whatever shows up for you in life changes your personal vibration. You radiate and generate more goodness for yourself when you’re aware of all you have and not focusing on your have-nots.” – Oprah Winfrey It all started a few years ago when Oprah began a gratitude journal each day.
