Don’t hide from me. . . . After spending the last several years helping my clients change their lifestyle, I’ve noticed an interesting trend around the holidays: . People tend to put their “health” on hold from the end of October to the beginning of January. . 👉Appointments are pushed back till after the new year. 👉I get told that “I can’t start a new program during the holidays” 👉My check in emails are often dismissed. . But I want you to know -- my goal is to NEVER judge you for your choices. In fact, I want to HELP you not feel the effects from those choices. . My goal is to meet you halfway. . I WANT to know if you plan on eating some of your favorite (non-compliant) foods so that I can give you tools & resources (such as different supplement recommendations) to negate the effects as much as possible so that you don’t feel terrible the next day. . I WANT to know, so that I can give you support & guidance. . I WANT to know, so that we can create a plan of action for post holiday indulgence (ahead of time) to get you back on track FAST within a matter of days. . . . . . #functionalmedicine #functionalmedicinedoctor #functionalmedicinefoods #functionalfood #functionalnutrition #functionalnutritionist #fxmed #integrativemedicine #functionalmedicinepractitioner #foodismedicine #rootcause #lifestylemedicine #holisticnutrition #holisticnutritionist #foodasmedicine #naturopath #naturopathic #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathy #naturopathicdoctor #chiropractic #chiropracticlifestyle #chiropractor #chiropractors #functionalchiropractic

Six Healthy Lifestyle Habits 🖐🏼☝🏼 - Just like anything else worth having, feeling good and staying healthy takes work. These six habits are foundational for a long life. Before you start visiting one doctor after another looking for a solution (unless medical emergency or ongoing monitoring), make sure that you are practicing these six on a regular basis. - Getting outside for at least 10 minutes of direct sunlight to the skin is huge! We have become disconnected with nature. Also going barefoot and connecting with the ground is a powerful anti-inflammatory tool that we can all add to our lifestyle. Refer to our recent post about the concept of 'Earthing', incredible stuff. - What would you add? Comment below!👇🏼 - Check out @teamplants for more! 👀👨🏻‍⚕️ - #natureheals #naturalliving #instahealthy #backtobasics

Today is International Have a Bad Day Day, and as you know, I had a few of those last week 🌦 . . Day 323: Holistic Living 365 REBOUNDING . . How quickly you can "rebound" and dig yourself out of a dark place says a lot about the state of your mental health and is something to be aware and mindful of. And if you're not, that's ok, just try not to rip the head off of your friend or family member who maybe suggests you get help when they see you down on your luck for an extended period of time. They're just trying to help, as much as we may not want it in those moments. . . There's no exact formula or science that says you should mourn or feel down for x-amount of days when this or that happens, but the longer you stay stuck, the more prone you are to finding yourself in depressive states that can be even harder to claw your way out of. Getting enough sleep, identifying coping strategies, stress relief, exercise, and a healthy diet are all key factors in mental health hygiene. . . Rebounding, or a rebounder, is a mini-trampoline. If you were an 80's baby, you've probably seen them. If you're in to the latest fitness crazes, there's a rebounding class or two around! Rebounding affects EVERY cell of our body. It's great for immunity, cardiovascular, easy on our joints, aids in lymphatic circulation, but what it's really effective at is making us feel better. Rebounding gets our blood pumping, increases endorphins and helps to clear our brains. It's definitely the easy, fast, feel good "exercise". Give it a try sometime, or if you've been rebounding for a while, share your thoughts below! #jumparound . . . . . #internationaldayof #haveabadday #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalbreakdown #depression #mentalclarity #healthymindset #healthymindandbody #mindbodysoul #anxietyrelief #darkness #whatyoudontsee #sadness #alone #bipolardisorder #majordepressivedisorder #suicideprevention #mentalwellness #stopthestigma #holistichealing #holistichealth #holisticnutrition #holisticliving #healthandwellness #lifteachotherup #supportyourfriends #stanleypark #naturetherapy

Vitamin C boost while we fight a cold-filled home. Added fatty avocado and pistachios for some quick #ToddlerFuel. We have been taking elderberry on top of immune boosting foods (homemade bone broth, greens, etc) and I think we’re slowly turning a corner 😋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’ve been ending our night with warm chamomile tea + local honey & a warm bath with oils after. Thieves on the feet + lavender and copaiba on the chest (comfort, decrease swelling, relaxation). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s your favorite immune boosting remedy? 🍵
