Testing, Testing, 123

Have you ever wondered what types of testing are available to you? In general, I try not to overuse testing but in some cases, it makes sense to dig a little bit deeper into why you feel the way you do. If you have made progress but it has stalled or you want to...

Pandemic Fatigue

Pandemic Fatigue

Well, 2021 is here and COVID is still at the top of our minds. We are so very lucky in Nova Scotia and I am grateful for that. However, many of us are starting to experience pandemic fatigue – which is more challenging to manage during the dark months of winter. What...

Reflections on COVID-19

As we slowly see new COVID cases rising I’ve been reflecting on how COVID has changed the way we live our lives. The impact is huge on our mental and physical health but many of us are minimizing how we feel because we realize that others always have it worse. Despite...

How Are You Feeling?

I hope that when you come in to see me in the clinic it is obvious that I absolutely LOVE what I do. I would never do anything else and cannot believe that I graduated 14 years ago. With everything that has been happening in the world, I have been reflecting on my...

How to Approach Intolerances as a Lifestyle Change

So many of my readers have done the Carroll Food Intolerance test. It’s a test that tells you what your body can’t process properly. If you eat too much of that food then your system reacts in ways that are unpleasant.  Initially, I suggest or ask that you remove the...

Things I Am Supposed To Love
