The Seasons and Health

In Chinese medicine, each season and its element—wood, fire, earth, metal, or water—govern the flow of qi (energy) in the body. Proper flow of qi is key for health maintenance. Acupuncture and herbal treatments regulate the flow of qi to organs via energetic pathways (meridians) to heal the body and restore balance.

The urinary tract is part of the excretory system that removes wastes and unnecessary metabolites from the body to maintain homeostasis and biochemical balance. Made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra, the urinary tract is perceived to be sterile, except for the urethra.

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of any part of the urinary system. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract, which is comprised of the bladder and urethra. Due to the differences in anatomy between men and women, women have a much greater tendency to get UTIs than men. In fact, Canadian women make about 500,000 visits to doctors per year due to UTIs. [1]

The focus of the scientific community on the many roles of the microbiome continues to expand. Every week, it seems another discovery shows the importance of a healthy gut flora and by extension, a possible role for probiotic supplementation. In this article, we turn our attention to a particular bacterium, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which has shown promise in many scientific studies relating to women’s health concerns. L. rhamnosus has been shown to benefit a widely ranging list of areas including vaginal health, the urinary tract, health in pregnancy, as well as mental health.

The Mind-Body Connection

If you have ever been startled or scared, like anticipating the drop on a roller coaster, you can appreciate that the mind and body are intimately connected. As the coaster clicked up the ramp you may have experienced anxiety along with muscle tension, sweaty palms, dry mouth, and an uneasy feeling in your gut—you may even be experiencing these physical symptoms as you recall a past occurrence. Here, you can see the impact a mental/emotional stressor can have on your physical body.

School is out and summer is in! This is the time of lazy days, family fun, and of course—travel.

Whether you love to camp, visit family, go on road trips, or perhaps even fly or cruise to new lands around the world, if you are like me or have any loved ones who live with food allergies, celiac disease, or any other food sensitivity, you know that these simple pleasures are anything but simple.

What is Stress? Stress is a threat to the internal balance (homeostasis) of the body. Stress related conditions including anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, indigestion, reflux, and peptic ulcer disease can be interpreted as consequences of body’s inability to maintain internal balance in response to internal or external demands. Stress impairs digestion, decreases immune function and alters mood (anxiety and depression). We will focus on digestion since health and illness begin in the gut!

How To Tackle Sugar Cravings

23 April 2019 12:17:57 CEST

By Dr. Laura Pipher, ND

History of Sugar

Historically, human beings had access to fructose in the form of fruits, honey, and certain vegetables, and the consumption of these high sugar foods increased the chances for survival during periods of food scarcity, due to the ample calories sugar provides.[1] Sugar has the ability to lay down fat; however, the forms widely available in nature also contain fibre which slows and limits its absorption, allowing blood sugar levels to stay stable while consuming these calories.[1] Human pleasure and reward centers in the brain enabled the drive for sugar-seeking behaviour when blood sugar levels were too low; however, even with the 24/7 availability of sugar, human reward centers have not evolved to match this, leading to the problem of overconsumption.[1]
