WELLNESS CORNER:
As Cold and Flu season approaches - a healthy body is your best defense. Little known facts that can boost your immune system and keep you feeling great!

Forget what you think you know about...

Registered Massage Therapy:
it reduces stress and increases circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids that help your body eliminate toxins. Getting a massage not only helps you relax, it might also benefit your immune system, a new study suggests. Chronic stress is a major contributor to inflammatory disease and illness. When your body is relaxed your parasympathetic system can go into rest and repair mode. Read More.

Chiropractic Adjustments:
Many studies have shown this to boost the immune system. Our nervous system runs through the spine and works with the immune system in order for the body to adapt to various conditions and heal appropriately when required. Spinal misalignments can disrupt this delicate communication causing dysfunctions that are stressful to the body which may lead to a weakened immune response. Read More .

In another article, "an initial three-year study of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more, the chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care." Read More.
Supplements: "A Super Pill Defence?"
As we ramp up our social activities for the festivities ahead starting with Thanksgiving, Halloween, peaking over the Holidays and ending with New Years celebrations, there are many rich foods, alcoholic beverages and late nights that can take their toll on our bodies. Many of us stress about entertaining, money, family, not having enough time in the day or the calendar to do it all; add in not getting enough rest, drinking enough water or eating nutritious meals and you realize it can compromise even the toughest immune system.

Time for a Rescue Strategy.

Along with good lifestyle habits, Massage therapy and Chiropractic care, good quality supplements* may really act like a magic super pill, when taken as directed. Factors like weight, age, food sensitivities, over indulgence and stress can create a weakened environment that precipitate unwelcome and uncomfortable side effects like gas, bloating, pain and inflammation that can impair a healthy immune system. Here are some of our fave "Super Stars" to buddy-up with in the upcoming season:

Digestive Enzymes: break down foods (protein and fats) into nutrients that our body can absorb and use as fuel. Think about all the parties, restaurants and heavy meals over the next month or so, digestive enzymes can be your favourite "plus 1."

Probiotics : busy "good guy" organisms that keep our gut flora healthy and balanced, limiting the growth of the toxic organisms that may cause gas, bloating and even diarrhea. It's like having your very own "body guards!"

Vitamin C and Bioflavinoids: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body’s natural defenses, Bioflavinoids (derived from plant compounds) act like a super protective antioxidant boost against free radicals that are responsible for destroying cells and contribute to aging and illness.

We also have a few choice products that provide a calming influence, giving you the temporary relief you need to handle stress more effectively. Ask your health care practitioner what is right for you.

*never make changes to your diet, supplementation or lifestyle without consulting your healthcare practitioner .
Wash Your Hands!
Old fashioned advice that doesn't go out of style.

When you are out and about - cough into your sleeve and try not to put your hands anywhere near your nose or eyes and wash, wash, wash. In a pinch, use a hand sanitizer. If you're worried about the toll it will take on your hands try our clinic recommended, Dr. Bronner's Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer, a surprisingly soothing formula leaves your hands feeling cleansed, soft and cared for. Pick yours up today.


TIP! Did you know the amount of time you should take to wash your hands can be timed out in singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"? (allow at least 30 seconds).
