  • The Many Feces of Probiotics

    by John Stan | Mar 01, 2017
    Not all probiotics are alike! In fact, there are so many in the market place that we would need a weekend course to go through them all and explore their strengths and weaknesses. With all the positive research on probiotics emerging from the Human Biome project, we as practitioners need to consider how probiotics figure into our treatment plans.

    by John Stan | Feb 28, 2017

  • Ensure a Healthy Pregnancy with an Organic Whole-Food Multi by Dr. David Wang, ND

    by John Stan | Feb 28, 2017
    Eating a nutrient-rich, whole food diet ensures the health of the growing baby. Health Canada recommends a prenatal multivitamin/mineral supplement as “insurance” for a health pregnancy in case mother’s diet is lacking since greater demands are placed on her body. (When not obtaining required nutrients, mother’s stores are depleted for baby’s needs.) However, it is also an investment in the child that will reap enormous gains.

  • The Heart of Your Work by Felice Dunas

    by John Stan | Feb 01, 2017
    As a profession we are blossoming and going through growing pains. As professionals we are improving the healthcare landscape and surmounting challenges. As people we are moving towards the fulfillment of our life’s dreams and confronting hardships. While there are many dimensions through which to look at life, it is undeniable that both the Yang and Yin aspects exist. That which nourishes partners that which diminishes. Abundance walks beside lack and progress means set backs.

  • Getting Food in Order: A Guide to Meal Design

    by John Stan | Dec 28, 2016
    Food talk today can be complex and confusing: eat more of this, less of that; this is a superfood, that other is a must avoid…or is it the other way around? Fads come and go, and studies can be found to justify almost anything. What is often overlooked is the importance of the way foods are combined into dishes and into meals. This is the open secret: it’s not just the foods we include or exclude, it is the amounts and the way we combine them that may be the key to supporting good digestion and—by direct extension— nearly every aspect of our health.

  • Autumn: The Season of Metal Energy

    by Aly Lewis | Oct 31, 2016
    In autumn we learn more about ourselves, perhaps, than in any other season. Having provided the harvest, Nature now makes everything bare. In this season Nature lets go of its abundant creation of the past year in a grand final display. Autumn marks the end of the growing season - a turning inward, a falling away of outer-directed energy. Leaves turn color and drop. The old leaves go back to the earth, enriching it to promote the coming of new leaves, a new harvest.

  • Why Biomes are the new thing & New Beginnings will restore yours

    by John Stan | Jun 30, 2016
    Recent investigations into how micro-bacteria living on the tissues of our body influence health have been garnering huge interest. Scientists are discovering that bacteria play a massive role in health, and they are making links to our years of trying to kill and sterilize our living spaces to the weakened immune systems of an entire generation. The increase of allergic reactions, asthma, and other immune-related diseases are now being attributed to the over-attention paid to cleanliness and sterile environments.

  • Needle vs Magnet in Anti Aging, Wrinkle Reduction treatments.

    by John Stan | May 09, 2016
    With the ever growing demand for natural anti aging solutions, women have been exploring new ways to stimulate skin vitality and wrinkle reduction. Over the last ten years acupuncture has emerged as one of the leading choices for women. Practitioners have stepped up to meet this demand by taking courses on the various needling protocols that have evolved to work both at the cosmetic and constitutional level. One obstacle with needling however is that many patients are unwilling to try the process due to fear of needles. In addition to the fact that a practitioner's patient population is restricted to those willing to be needled, cosmetic acupuncture requires multiple treatments for results to be significant. A final challenge with needling is the constant underlying risk of bruising, which is never a pleasant situation for practitioners to deal with when it happens.
