What is EVIDENCE BASED MEDICINE? . As a Naturopathic Doctor, I was trained in using an evidence oriented approach. This means I balance the BEST AVAILABLE EVIDENCE (research supported), CLINICAL EXPERIENCE, and my PATIENT’S VALUES and preferences. By considering each of these, I can individualize the treatment and really focus on what is BEST FOR YOU! . Ready to get your health on track? DM me or call the clinic @thehealthoverall at 905-892-1318 for more info! #fonthillwellness#beyourbestself#naturopathicmedicine#evidencebasedmedicine#individualizedtreatment#youareworthit!

Did you know that dairy is a common food sensitivity? It causes inflammation, worsens skin symptoms, and is mucus forming. You know that chronic congestion or acne that you have? Well, it might be the dairy😫 Humans are the only mammals that continue to drink milk into adulthood, even though we weren’t designed to metabolize it. In fact, after 7 years old we make significantly less of the enzyme to break down lactose. It’s no surprise that so many people don't feel quite right when they eat dairy... . Anecdotally, when I started university, I wanted to make sure I was healthy and prevent osteoporosis, so I upped my calcium intake. I drank mostly milk, had yogurt daily, and put cheese on everything! After all...you're not a McNaughton if you don't LOVE cheese! It took a while before I discovered Naturopathic Medicine and figured out it was the dairy making me so sick. . If you have been struggling with digestive discomfort, pain or bloating, skin rashes or acne, brain fog, etc. it is worth looking into food sensitivity testing! I know that giving up a food sensitivity is tough..but trust me when I say that you will feel an awful lot better! . Let me help you get to the root of your digestive troubles so you can be a whole new you! #digestion#dig(est)it? #fonthillwellness#hoalifestyle#naturopathicmedicine#dairyfree#foodsensitivitytesting
A healthy lifestyle is all about balance. Indulging sometimes, being more active others. You can never out-exercise a bad-diet, but that should not be the goal anyhow. I think most of you know that already 😊 . Allow yourself to enjoy life and pick and choose when it matters more/less. . Not sure wheee to go next to improve your health? I work with patients to determine diet and lifestyle factors specific to their needs and to get them back to feeling GREAT! . If you are ready to feel your best again, I can help you! #naturopathicmedicine#healthylifestyle#fonthillwellness#pickandchoose#beyourbestself#getbacktofeelinggreat
FAT BOMBS! Since starting Keto, I have been looking for healthy sources of fat to keep me fueled! These bombs also trigger that “reward pathway” when you just need a treat! Here is my newest attempt!While they could look prettier, they taste delicious! Ingredients • coconut oil • creamed coconut (found at bulk barn) • desiccated coconut • vanilla stevia drops • Himalayan pink salt I had to play around with the proportions to get the right texture and taste. Admittedly the majority is coconut oil and all the ingredients blended together formed a “whipped cream” texture. All you have to do is drop balls onto a lined cookie sheet, place in the freezer for 5-10 mins to set, and enjoy! NOTE: it bears mentioning that fat does not make us fat, but rather fat and carbs together in excess do. A Ketogenic diet focuses primarily on lots of healthy fat and minimal carbohydrates, allowing the body to run on ketone bodies instead of glucose. #brainfuel#fonthillwellness#eatyourhealthyfats#ketochallenge#ketoforarockstarbrain
Starting the morning off right with Bulletproof coffee! Believe it or not, this creamy tasting coffee is dairy-free and loaded with healthy fats and protein. 350 ml organic and fair trade coffee 1 tsp coconut oil 1 tsp grass-fed collagen or gelatin (this makes it frothy!) MCT oil optional #healthyniagara#bulletproofcoffee#drinkyourhealthyfats
MY JANUARY CHALLENGE - I’m going to bio hack my body! I’m all for promoting healthy eating for improved digestion, energy, longevity, and overall wellbeing! Since nutrition, cooking, and of course SCIENCE are major interests of mine, I’m always trying to experiment with new challenges. This month, I’ve decided to give a KETOGENIC diet a try, mainly because of the sustained energy, mental clarity, and endurance it’s capable of! I’m going to focus on healthy fats, well-raised meats, and low-carb veggies so that my body runs on ketones instead of glucose as fuel. Stay tuned for my progress reports and food product spotlights! #naturopathicmedicine#healthyniagara#biohacking#ketopower#brainfuel#eatyourhealthyfats
