Can Acupuncture Help Lymphatic Health?

Louise Smith, R.Ac Understanding the Lymphatic System The lymphatic system plays a crucial role in maintaining our overall health and well-being as a component of the circulatory, immune, and metabolic systems. The main functions of the lymphatic system is the maintenance of fluid balance in the body, immunity, and distribution of dietary fats to the bloodstream for metabolism. When the lymphatic system is not functioning optimally, it can become congested leading to fluid retention or lymphedema, swollen lymph nodes, and compromised immune function leading to other more serious health issues.

Acupressure Points for Detoxification

By Kathleen Regan, NDAcupressure points for detoxification can be a valuable tool for supporting the body’s natural cleansing processes year-round. Spring is a natural time for detoxification. The warming weather provides a supportive environment to detoxify without putting too much strain on the body. The natural warmth in the spring/summer environment supports the organs of detoxification, especially the digestive system and kidneys, which are most sensitive to cold temperatures. Detoxification in the spring and summer rather than the winter prevents injury to these systems according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory.Acupressure, a TCM technique involving the application of pressure to specific points on the body, can be particularly beneficial for regulating the flow of qi (vital energy) and promoting the elimination of toxins and waste products. By targeting acupressure points associated with detoxification, such as those on the hands, feet, and legs, you can support your body’s natural ability to cleanse itself of harmful substances. Acupressure massage and stimulating these pressure points can help flush out toxins, aid in liver detoxification, and improve overall well-being.In addition to acupressure, other TCM modalities like acupuncture and cupping can also be incorporated into a comprehensive detoxification program. These therapies work to balance the body’s energy, reduce inflammation, and enhance the function of the detoxifying organs. When combined with a healthy diet, proper hydration, and other lifestyle changes, acupressure and related TCM practices can be a powerful way to naturally detoxify and revitalize your body. […]

The Benefits of Cupping Therapy

By Elizabeth John, RMTThe benefits of cupping therapy are numerous, as this ancient healing method is used to ease back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other issues. Cupping therapy uses suction to pull on your skin and increase blood flow to the affected area. It can ease scar tissue deep within muscles and connective tissues, and reduce swelling and muscle knots.Types of CuppingTwo popular types of cupping are: stationary and sliding. Stationary cupping therapy uses suction only, keeping the cups in place for a set time, usually 5 to 10 minutes. Sliding cupping therapy is a traditional therapy that has been used for centuries to manage pain and promote relaxation. This therapy involves applying suction cups to the skin, which are subsequently moved around the body to promote blood flow and relieve muscle tension. Sliding cupping is more like a deep tissue massage where the provider moves the cups over the area of pain or concern. […]

Experience Sound Therapy with HIBIKI Music Boxes

By Etsuko Ikeda, Reiki MasterHarnessing Natural Sound Frequencies for HealingSound therapy with HIBIKI music boxes, harnesses specific sound frequencies to positively influence brainwave activity and promote mental and physical well-being. In the natural world, there are ultra-high and low-frequency sounds that have a strong influence on the brainstem and hypothalamus, which are the life centers, and promote natural healing in humans, animals, and even plants. By using sound waves produced by instruments such as Tibetan bowls and tuning forks, these therapy sessions effectively address the need for relaxation and mental clarity. Sessions leverage the unique properties of sound vibrations to immerse the body and mind in a deeply soothing experience, beginning with the gentle resonances that harmonize with your natural rhythms to induce calm and recovery.What is the HIBIKI?HIBIKI is a sound or voice that can be heard by the ear, expressed in units of hertz. The frequencies that can be heard by the human ear are generally said to be approximately 20 to 20,000 hertz – this is called the audible range. The higher the frequency, the higher the sound is perceived by the human ear.Functions of our Hypothalamus and BrainstemThe HypothalamusThe hypothalamus is in the diencephalon at the deepest part of the brain. It is an extremely important region that regulates body temperature, appetite, sleep, and water and salt levels in the body. It also works with the nearby hippocampus to regulate memory and consciousness.The BrainstemThe brainstem consists of the midbrain, pons, and diencephalon. It directly controls autonomic functions essential for survival, such as breathing, heartbeat, and digestive body temperature regulation. It also controls the functions of regulating sleep, wakefulness levels, posture, and movement. For maintaining and recovering health, the brainstem is essential.Inaudible [...]

MORA BioResonace Smoking Cessation Program

BioResonance therapy was invented in Germany and is used in many countries worldwide. It has been found to be highly effective in treating ailments, such as allergies, skin problems, chemical and heavy metal toxicity and other conditions including nicotine addiction. It has been used successfully in helping individuals quit smoking, with dramatic results after a maximum of three treatments, but often one treatment is enough. How Does This Treatment Work? Using MORA BioResonance therapy, the frequency pattern of nicotine in the body is inverted back to the body. This produces what is called a phase cancellation and helps the body to dispense with the memory of nicotine and return to its original state prior to addiction. As a result, the body’s detoxification system is stimulated to eliminate nicotine and the associated cigarette toxins through the kidneys and skin.  Using BioResonance therapy medications or treatments to stop smoking reduces the urge to smoke as well as the physical cravings, as it cancels the nicotine’s hold on your body. It is a painless therapy, and BioResonance therapy medication is safe and effective. Some people feel a slight tingling, but most feel no sensation during the treatment. You will be given MORA Drops that contain the therapy information to support you in the weeks following your treatment. There are also counselling and psychotherapy available as required.  Contact our BioResonance therapy team of experts to find out more about our BioResonance therapy treatments and MORA BioResonace Smoking Cessation program.

Why Choose a Naturopathic Doctor?

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are healthcare providers that use natural remedies to support healing and wellness. So, why choose a naturopathic doctor? All licensed NDs in Ontario, including our team of licensed naturopathic doctors, must complete a minimum of three years of university-level training, including pre-medical courses, and four years at an accredited naturopathic medical program. The foundation of naturopathic medicine training is rooted in health sciences, while the therapies include clinical nutrition, supplementation, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and lifestyle counselling. Benefits of a Naturopathic Doctor for Your Health and Well-BeingHere are the top 4 reasons why you might choose to see a Naturopathic Medicine Doctor. Comprehensive ConsultationsYou are looking for more time to discuss your health concerns in depth with a trained healthcare practitioner. Naturopathic medical doctor visits range in length, but the average appointment time is 45-60 minutes. This allows you to discuss your health concerns at length without feeling like you have to rush and possibly leave something important out of the discussion. The benefits of seeing a naturopath include having a thorough understanding of your health history and current conditions, which is essential for providing individualized care. Holistic ApproachYou are wondering if different types of symptoms may be connected. As holistic practitioners, naturopathic doctors consider all of your health concerns as part of a larger pattern or picture. No matter how seemingly unconnected your symptoms might seem, your ND would like to hear about each concern. A doctor of naturopathy will further explore the details and timing of your concerns in the context of your health history and look to see if there is a common thread. NDs believe in treating the ‘root cause’ and thereby addressing all of the different ‘branches’ or symptoms. [...]

MORA Bioresonance Treatment and Allergy Testing

BioResonance therapy is an accurate and painless way to identify and address seasonal allergens, environmental allergens, food sensitivities, environmental toxin accumulation, and other stress burdens on the body.MORA BioResonance Allergy Test & Treatment is helpful with:Seasonal & environmental allergiesFood allergiesPet/Animal allergiesSkin sensitivities (eczema, dermatitis)Digestive concerns related to food sensitivities (constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating)How Do Allergies Develop?When the body is under stress, inflammation can develop, and elimination through organs such as the liver, bowel, and kidneys can become difficult or impaired. This can lead to a cascade of events including high histamine, leaky gut, and an imbalanced immune system which can lead to both food and environmental allergies.The MORA Bioressonance ProcessUsing MORA BioResonance Therapy, we identify the triggers and stress burdens that lead to inflammation and allergies. Once food sensitivities have been identified, they will be temporarily removed from the diet, and a diet appropriate for balancing the immune system and healing the gut will be introduced.  BioResonance treatments desensitize harmless substances (like food) and detoxify harmful substances (like environmental toxins), and with this, the body is naturally able to heal and allergies typically will lessen or resolve. BioResonance therapy desensitization may be recommended weekly or bi-weekly over a period of time to help the body and immune system tolerate or resolve some allergies.  After a period of approximately 12 weeks stressors and allergens can be retested to see if they are now eliminated and can be tolerated by the body.Step 1. MORA Allergy Assessment IncludesIdentification of specific food and environmental allergens. Identification of external and internal factors that are contributing to allergies. Toxins (like air pollution) and infection (like candida) increase the stress burden on the body and lead to inflammation and allergies.Allergy treatment + allergy drops.Step 2. Allergy [...]

How to Increase Your Vibration for Whole Health

By Etsuko IkedaI strongly believe that it is important to keep our vibration level high to live a balanced and healthy life both physically and mentally. Modern science shows us that the entire universe consists of energy. All things in the universe are constantly in motion. Even objects that appear to be stationary are vibrating at various frequencies. You are a living, vibrating energy field. Not only are we surrounded by vibrations but we are vibrations ourselves. When a person is suffering from chronic stress, illness or dealing with unfortunate events, it could be an indication that they are out of balance both within themselves and with the universal energy surrounding them. It can be said that they are in a disharmonious relationship with their body’s optimal health and that of the universe. These low-vibration energies can disrupt your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Learning how to raise your vibration involves recognizing these imbalances and actively working towards aligning your energy with the positive flow of universal vibrations.Try these six simple tips to increase your vibration and whole health.Gratitude and Reflection: Each evening, take a moment to reflect on 1-3 things that brought you joy throughout the day. Engage in this practice with a genuine smile and consider maintaining a gratitude journal. This habit not only boosts your positive energy but also aligns you with the higher vibrational emotions that shape a fulfilled life.Mindful Thinking: Choose positive affirmations daily to reshape your thoughts and feelings. By replacing negative thought patterns with positive ones, you create a high-vibrational environment within your mind, helping to raise your energetic frequency and attract more positivity.Exercise and Nutrition: Engage in activities that make you feel good about your body, such [...]

Energy Body Self Care

Marco Rosada Biofield Healer at Biofield Medical | Toronto The Human Energy Body or biofield surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and is made of two distinct modules. One is a complex system of electromagnetic fields known as Aura or Auric Field where every bit of information about physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health is recorded since the day the body was conceived. The other module is made of Subtle Energy–also known as Bio-Energy, Chi, Orgon, Ki, Prana, etc.–funnelled into and around the physical body by the spin of the trillions of particles the body is made of. Both modules surround and interpenetrate the physical body. The biofield is responsible for the communication between the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies and regulates the body’s biological function and homeostasis – the ability of an organism to maintain a state of internal balance and physical wellbeing despite changes or outside factors. Our Biofield energy patterns are sensitive to low-vibrational electromagnetic fields like those we create by associating a negative thought or event to a correspondent negative emotion. Every time we experience or remember a negative event, we generate electromagnetic (EM) fields that can end up sitting anywhere in our biofield, damaging the information contained in the energy patterns. The higher amount of low vibrational EM fields in our biofield, the more our physical, emotional, and mental bodies are vulnerable and exposed to imbalance and disease. Three minutes/day to avoid old and new negative emotions lingering in your energy body: […]
