As the Winter Approaches

As the Winter Approaches

One of the main questions I am getting in my office lately is about Vitamin D. So many of us notice the shorter days and our first thought is to take Vitamin D. We should be taking Vitamin D year round, even in the summer, but it is especially important this time of...

How to Approach Intolerances as a Lifestyle Change

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...

Zero Waste Living

There is a huge zero waste movement happening right now. The Tare Shop, on Cornwallis St just opened. It is Nova Scotia’s first zero waste store. As a Naturopathic Doctor who loves the environment, the concept of zero waste makes sense to me. I just didn’t realize how...

Gift Experiences

Gift Experiences

In keeping with my zero waste desires in a previous blog post, I decided to make a gift giving list that was only experiences. We’ll be doing some of these for our family, but will still be giving physical gifts as well, if they are the right fit. I’ve never been...

Zero Waste Travel

Zero Waste Travel

I hope you enjoyed my blog on our trip to Newfoundland. I often bring my own food when I travel but am not always prepared to use as little waste as possible. This time I decided to make a conscious effort to make less waste. For this trip we traveled by ferry and...

Eating In Newfoundland

Eating In Newfoundland

If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen the pictures I posted while in Newfoundland in September. Before I left, everyone told me how hard it would be to eat healthy in Newfoundland so I was terrified! It turned out that with some prep and hidden gems we...
