Building Resilience Workshop

This workshop will cover tips and strategies to help you become more emotionally resilient and bounce back from a challenge.

We will also cover combatting perfectionism.
The workshop will cover using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to challenge negative, self-defeating thoughts, and challenge our negative schemas. Mindful self-compassion meditations will be completed to lend ourselves compassion during challenging times.

Using Acceptance-Commitment Therapy helps us get in touch with determining our values and how we can align our actions with our values during challenging times. Values can help us get through challenging times by giving us clarity about the next course of action we should take.

Samara Rotstein MA, RSW will also be discussing using logo-therapy (finding meaning in suffering) developed by Viktor Frankl to help us cope with adversity. Lachlan Crawford, Naturopathic Mental Health will give lifestyle recommendations and discuss physiological tools that we can utilize during tough times to build resilience.

We hope to see you there!

Ovarian Cysts: A Traditional Medicine Approach

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac within the ovary or on its surface.
Cysts on the ovaries can be a fairly common occurrence, they are often harmless and will dissolve on their own. Others may cause discomfort or pain if they rupture and bleed.
Helping the body to naturally move this congestion out is a key aspect of treating cysts with acupuncture, and what we usually look at first is the source or root of the issue.

If you are looking for natural methods to help with ovarian cysts, learn more on Barbara's article. Read more below!

You may not know that all of your hormonal systems are interconnected:
Your ovarian hormones, thyroid hormones, adrenal (stress) hormones, pancreatic hormones and others from your brain.
When one system goes out of balance you will see the effect in all other systems. For example during prolonged periods of high stress, not only the adrenal hormones change.

Also during stress, the following occur: lower progesterone from the ovaries which affects your menstrual cycle and fertility, changes in blood sugar metabolism due to the impact on insulin response affecting weight, poor thyroid hormone utilization affecting energy levels, and lower melatonin levels affecting sleep quality.

Specific hormonal issues that can be treated with naturopathic medicine, include:
Hormone imbalance
PMS – premenstrual syndrome
Perimenopause
Endometriosis
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
Irregular periods
Cervical dysplasia
Menstrual cramps
Breast cancer recovery
Menopause
and more!

Book in with Dr. Shawna Darou, NDor Marika Berni Naturopathic Doctor. for a complimentary meet and greet to discuss treatment!

Each day, many people approach Mindfulness while they are already distressed. This leaves little room for tangible improvements or significant neurological changes.

Mindfulness 101 is a 4-part class series, designed to offer the practical tools that support one through their Mindfulness Journey. Through researched-based practices, the intention is to offer a “crash course” on everything from mindful-movement to meditation and community connection. Ultimately healing the self, mind and body.

What does this mean?
Mindfulness 101 is a preventative practice – strongly focusing on creating mindful habits that allow one to interact with life’s stressors from a calm and logical mindset. General feelings of peace, creativity, clear-mindedness, gratitude and physiological relaxation are common side-effects of Mindfulness Practices.

For many, Mindfulness is the journey to self-love, healing and awareness. To give the self space from “doing” and “going”, and to practice the art of “being”.

Attendance to all 4 classes is not mandatory but highly encouraged. Each class will consist of a portion of mindful-movement, meditation as well as discussion.

10 things I wish everyone knew about Unexplained Infertility

As a naturopath with a large hormone focus in my practice, I see many people with fertility struggles. The diagnosis that most commonly brings people to a me is ‘unexplained infertility’. This confusing diagnosis leaves women unsure of what to do next – should they move forward with invasive fertility treatments, or simply keep trying on their own?

In the article below are ten things I wish everyone knew about unexplained infertility to move through this diagnosis with optimal support.

5 things you may not know impact hormone health from Dr. Shawna Darou, ND
1) Your gut function 🧩
- The gut is key to hormone detox pathways, and when there is constipation, bloating, poor nutrient absorption or an imbalance in the gut microbes, it can make a huge impact on hormone balance and period health.
2) Dietary fat intake🍎
- Did you know that the backbone of all of your hormones is cholesterol? It is essential to eat sufficient healthy fats to have normal hormone balance.
3) Stress levels🤬
- Stress can throw every body system out of balance, and your hormones are one of the most impacted. Periods can get heavier or lighter, ovulation changes, fertility rates drop and thyroid function is affected.
4) Over-exercising 💪
- We always talk about getting enough exercise, but over-exercise also deserves a discussion. Exercising too much puts your body into a state of stress, and also conservation of energy. it can impact period regularly, can cause loss of periods, and affects how your body uses thyroid hormones.
5) Fasting / intermittent fasting 👩
- The popularity of fasting and intermittent fasting is causing a huge impact in women’s hormones. Quite simply, some respond differently than men, and fasting like over-exercising put your body into a state energy-conservation, affecting periods, ovulation, fertility and thyroid function.
