Fall is upon us and our Vitamin D levels are dropping.  Living in Toronto, we don't get much natural Vitamin D over the winter.  I'm active and try to spend lots of time outdoors in the fall & winter, but as the temperature drops I am more and more bundled up.  Our big...

September always feels like the start of a new year to me.  I spent 23 years of my life in school, and now have a son who is in school.  It feels to me like it's a time to reset before winter comes.  Summer is so short in Toronto that I always pack so much into those 2...

I was very fortunate to go on a big March Break trip this year to Korea & Japan.  As always, and even when I'm on vacation, I'm always thinking about health.  I don't make the same choices when I'm on vacation as I do when I'm at home (everything in moderation!), but I...

Many of my Toronto patients have noticed in my office the big Starbucks mug overflowing with mint from my garden (see pic!).  Mint is one of many types of teas that I use both personally and professionally as a Naturopathic Doctor.  Tea can be such a nice gentle way to...

I'm a back to basics kind of Naturopath in Toronto.  I feel that if people don't have the basic tools of eating healthy foods, getting adequate sleep, exercising, and stress reduction techniques, it's hard to achieve optimum health and feel amazing.  One of the most ba...

As a continuation from my last post, I dabble in all sorts of kinds of eating.  Sometimes I eat vegan meals (though I'm not vegan), I definitely love eating Mediterranean style, and I am often trying to reduce the quantity of grains that I eat (though I'm not paleo eit...
