I am so grateful for my time with you! Shawna Darou Sandy Antunes
Day 1 of the Self-Care Challenge: WATER ADD in 1 glass of filtered water BEFORE your morning tea or coffee ADD in 1 more glass to your day – in between a meal – that’s it! (make sure to add this into your routine over the next 4 days – make this a lifetime wellness habit) Your additional glass of water could also be: Infused with berries - mint - or cucumber Herbal teas (non-caffeinated) OR Sparkling water SHARE below what you chose as your additional glass of water (bonus points for a photo!)
For 7 years I suffered with pain in the upper right side of my tummy. The doctors carried out all sorts of tests, gave me several types of drugs and nothing works. In the end they said there's nothing we can do for you but refer you to the pain management clinic. Desperate I remembered that a family member had asked me to try apple cider vinegar and honey. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and I'm virtually pain free. I decided to stop the treatment for a while and the pain started again, so I have carried on with it.. I think the pain has been in my gut all this time and the doctors never even thought about that. I'm all for alternatives to pharmaceuticals now!

Darou Wellness is an integrative health centre located in Toronto's Queen West neighbourhood. Our services include: Naturopathic Medicine, Nutrition, Counselling, Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy, Osteopathy, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

80% of all cardiovascular-related health events can be avoided through lifestyle and dietary changes! ❤️

But how do you assess someone's risk for heart disease?

"When someone comes into my office looking to optimize their health and reduce their risk factors for heart disease, I look at a variety of different factors and create a treatment plan based on all aspects of their health.
Assessing the risk factors include: diet/nutrition, lifestyle, physical exams, assessing lab/blood work, and health history."

In @drshreyabatra recent blog post she discusses the following:💉🍎🌽🏌️
Diet:
- what is the best "diet" for optimal heart health?
Lifestyle factors:
- smoking
- alcohol
- physical activity
- stress
Lab work:
- Cholesterol panel (including LDL, HDL, triglycerides)
- Homocysteine, hsCRP, ApoB, ApoA1, HbA1c
- Other nutrients (B-vitamins, Vitamin D...etc)
Physical exams:
- blood pressure, heart rate
- waist circumference
- heart sounds
- eye exams
Health History:
- Diabetes
- menopause
- thyroid disease
- Genetics

Self-Care is Not About Having a Bath....
Try Setting Healthy Boundaries Instead!🙋

I hear many stories about how people are feeling stressed by their workplaces, competing responsibilities, relationships, health concerns, caring for others, money and the state of the world. When people do complain about feeling exhausted from stress, often a well-meaning friend will suggest they do some self-care. But what does ‘self-care’ really mean anyhow?

Learn in Mental Health Therapist, Laura Notton recent article on what self-care means and that it has more meaning that what we typical relate this topic with.

What is Naturopathic Cancer Care?🏥

The Oncology Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (OncANP) describes naturopathic cancer care as: ”An important role in the support of people diagnosed with cancer through survivorship.”

Naturopathic Medicine can provide evidence-informed guidance on safe and effective use of natural and supportive therapies when combined with conventional treatment.

Can I combine conventional medicine and naturopathic Medicine? Do I have to choose?

Great news! You don’t have to choose. You have the option to combine naturopathic and conventional medicine. This can support the pursuit of best possible outcomes for patients.

Naturopathic Cancer Care – Dr. Kimberley Ramberan,ND Approach:

Get your body healthy for vacation time with IV therapy.🏝️

Making it to the proverbial finish line before leaving for vacation can cause us to burn the candle at both end and leave us feeling run down. 🏋️

Do either of both of statements sound familiar.
“ I was fine until I started to relax and then got sick”🤦
“ As soon as I got off the plane from vacation I could feel something starting and now I’m sick”🙅

Nobody wants to be sick on vacation!🛬

IV Therapy can be a useful tool to set you up for success so you can fully enjoy the rest and relaxation you deserves by delivering a high concentration of vitamins and minerals that keep your immune system strong while in the airport on on the airplane.💉

Exercising only because you want to lose weight is still a very common perspective, and one I would like to challenge.

First of all, if you’re only going to the gym or running to lose weight, you’re likely approaching this from a negative or body punishing view-point.

Moving just to burn of the extra calories you ate simply leads to more negative self-talk.

It is that time of year again.
Sweaters and heavy coats are replaced by our less concealing spring clothes. ❄️☃️

It is time to shed the winter weight which we told ourselves we needed to stay warm through those cold winter months.

We all “know what to do” but it can be a daunting task to motivate yourself to eat right and exercise after a long winter. 🤸

The reason is that many of our hormones have the power to influence our cravings and self control, energy, and our body’s tendency to store fat.

This article will take you through the different hormonal imbalances that have an effect on weight gain and loss.

By balancing these hormones weight loss is achievable and sustainable.
