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...

What do you do when you can’t get past your GP to a specialist?

Posted | 0 comments

So I had my visit to my GP last week… it’s taken me a week to cool down enough to blog about it with somewhat less emotionally… A new doctor was there subbing for my usual one who is on mat leave. So I thought, “great! a new guy! maybe I’ll get somewhere”.

Posted | 0 comments

Besides the hormonal imbalance, the array of emotions and other side effects of peri-menopause, the one thing that I think bothers me most is the lack of acceptance and understanding of it as a legit condition. I have a fruit allergy…I’m allergic to “tree fruit”… so apples, peaches, pears etc. When I tell people that they automatically don’t want to believe this is possible. For the life of me, I don’t know why this is so hard to...

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

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...
