Kruger Omni Healing Treatments

Loreli was recently trained (and certified) by Dr. Joshua Kruger, in the provision of Kruger Omni Healing (KOH) Treatment techniques.

This is a non-intrusive, and gentle, means of helping to maintain and heal your body.  It's a quick form of adjustment designed to awaken the nerves and balance the body.

Using a series of light strokes and tapping, this amazing hands-on therapy works by connecting directly with the nervous system to restore balance and provide relief from symptoms, often within a single 20 minute treatment!

Nutrition Tip

  

It may seem like blasphemy, but I'll say

it anyways,

bacon is overrated!

 

Sure, it's okay as an occasional addition to your breakfast, or on a BLT sandwich, but it

really shouldn't be

used as your "go to"

choice of meat or as a

wrap for a filet mignon

or scallops.

 

For a boost of

protein, when watching your fat intake,

choose lean meats  

like fish, turkey and

chicken over bacon.

healthy eating, please visit our blog for some delicious, healthy, recipes.

Fitness Tip

  

Why should you exercise?

 

Exercise can lower bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol, lower blood pressure, reduce the

risk of diabetes, build

lean muscles, and strengthen bones.

 

It's a WHOLE lot better

for you than taking

some pills to achieve

a similar result.

Get Your Motor Running! 

Your metabolism is essentially the speed at which your body functions and releases energy. It's your motor, so to speak, so the less fat you possess and the better shape you're in, the quicker your body will burn calories.

MainArticle"Get Your Motor Running!"

 

Your metabolism is essentially the speed at which your body functions and releases energy. It's your motor, so to speak, so the less fat you possess and the better shape you're in, the quicker your body will burn calories. Similarly, a slow metabolism can lead to weight gain. However, don't despair, it's possible to accelerate your metabolism through exercise and nutrition. 

 

Breakfast Eat breakfast.

Start your morning off right by eating a balanced meal, especially when your metabolism has slowed down after a night of sleep and fasting.  

  

Add protein to your morning meal, such as nuts, seeds, hemp hearts or eggs. Protein speeds up your metabolism, since a larger amount of energy needs to be stored before it can be used up. Skipping breakfast will force your body to store fat in anticipation of another fast. The act of eating and digesting a meal accelerates your metabolism, so eat up!

 

Increase your fibre intake.

Foods that contain more fibre will speed up your metabolism. Much like protein, they demand more energy from your body in order to be burned.  

 

Water Pouring Be sure to drink lots of water throughout the day.  In addition to providing the required hydration level for your body to function properly, it helps to facilitate the digestive process.

 

Eat less, but more often.  Avoid skipping meals.  Instead, rather than eating three large meals per day, eat six small ones. By eating smaller portions, more often, you'll be giving your body a semi-constant dose of fuel. As well as speeding up your metabolism, since it will need to work more regularly, it's going to work better at controlling blood sugar over time.  

 

Muscle up. Add some muscle-toning exercises to your regular workout routine.  They'll help you burn fat and increase your muscle mass, both of which will speed up your metabolism while Bicep Curl you're at rest. That's right, you'll even burn calories while you're asleep or sitting down! Remember, for every extra pound of muscle you put on, your body uses around 50 extra calories a day.

 

Get moving! By combining muscle-toning with aerobic exercises, you stimulate your metabolism and increase your muscle mass. What's more, like muscle training, aerobic exercises will accelerate your system many hours after the fact. Whether you walk, swim, bike or run, just get moving! And, join a group (we suggest an Alter Ego boot camp class)!  Remember, people who exercise in a group, are more likely to continue with their programs and reach their goals more often than those who try to go it alone.

  

If you're thinking that you're ready to really work on getting your "motor" running, and improving your level of health and fitness, contact me!  I know I can help you achieve your health and fitness goals.

 

HeartHealthHeart Health Info
 
Heart With Weights

Do heart attacks or strokes kill more men than women?

According to the Heart & Stroke Foundation,
cardiovascular disease kills 32 percent of Canadian
men and 34 percent of Canadian women.

 

 And, don't assume you're too young to worry about
your heart.  In the US, 45 percent of heart attacks
strike people younger than 65 and

5 percent occur in people under 40
.
Odds are, the percentages are similar for Canada.
