The Role of Supplements for Breast Health

Posted | 0 comments

Breast Health Supplements At the turn of the century, 1 in 90 women had breast cancer.   Today it’s 1 in 8.   Despite advances in research and treatment, breast cancer continues to take a significant toll on women in our country.   Many risk factors for breast cancer can’t be changed: family history, the age at which you get your first period, and the age at which you go through menopause. However, risk can be increased or decreased based on the lifestyle choices you...

Regardless of the cause, a lack of sleep can...

It’s Worth The Time To Read The Label

It’s Worth The Time To Read The Label

Posted | 0 comments

Most people never read a label.  Does it surprise me? No, not really.  We live in a society of complacency.  It’s easier to throw a product in a shopping cart than take the time to read the label, because after all, a prerequisite to reading a label would involve actually having some prior knowledge of what we’re reading — and who has time for that?!!   BIG MISTAKE!  The more I learn about what goes into the foods we put in our bodies, and the products we...

The Importance of a Prenatal Vitamin

Proper nutrition is essential for good health and disease prevention. During pregnancy it is particularly important that women ensure adequate intake of nutrients to support the growing baby and their own health.

Thus, taking a prenatal supplement makes good...

Breaking a hip is never hip

Breaking a hip is never hip You’ve heard it a 1,000 times as a kid.  “Drink your milk if you want strong bones!”   We all know that milk is a good source of calcium but if you’re like me, milk doesn’t rank high on the list of favourite beverages.  Clearly I’m not alone.  An astounding 75% of girls over the age of 15 consume less than the recommended daily allowance of calcium, and in women over the age of 45, osteoporosis accounts for more days spent in hospital than many...

Do You Have Estrogen Excess?

Posted | 0 comments

Do you have estrogen excess? If you answered “yes” you’re not alone.  Over 50% of women 35 years and older have some level of hormonal imbalance often caused by excess estrogen.  Estrogen overload is behind many common health conditions that women experience. Unfortunately, many women often end up treating the symptoms without addressing the root cause.  I spoke at length about this very topic with Sherry Torkos, pharmacist and author of The Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural...

Can’t remember if an egg is fresh or hard boiled? Just spin the egg. If it wobbles, it’s raw. If it spins easily, it’s hard boiled. A fresh egg will sink in water, a stale one will float. That may be just about as much information you would ever want to know about eggs, but make room in your brain for one more important fact:  Eggs contain all the essential protein, minerals and vitamins, except Vitamin C.  And egg yolks are one of the few foods that...

How do you expect it to work if you don’t take it?!

Posted | 1 comment

Of course it makes sense… in order to get the benefit from taking supplements, you actually have to TAKE the supplements!  This may seem intuitive, but it’s not.  I know from personal experience how easy it is to fall off the wagon.  We all have busy lives, multi-tasking, juggling many balls… usually it’s us who we take care of last, so it’s not unusual that often times remembering to take our vitamins is no small feat.    I talk alot to women...
