Being Barefoot: The Wisdom of Earthing

By Dr. Alexia Georgousis ND, BPE, CPC It is amazing how something as simple and natural as being barefoot is actually incredibly beneficial for our health. The forefathers and foremothers of naturopathic medicine often prescribed dew walking to improve immunity and circulation – sadly, many have been ridiculed for recommending these grounding practices. Now however, research studies are proving the nature doctors were right all along!  In fact, studies demonstrate having direct skin contact with the surface of the Earth for a sustained period of time (30 minutes) is extremely beneficial for our health.

The Relatable Lunchbox Recipe

By Kerri Lambie, Registered Homeopath & Holistic Nutritionist Food was an integral component to my upbringing. I have great memories of sitting around the kitchen table for hours with my family laughing and enjoying the meal prepared for us. Going to school I had the same enjoyment from opening my brown paper bag (yes I am aging myself) and eating with my friends. Although there were many times I was envious of the cakes and cookies my friends had, as my mother opted for healthy snacks. I used to think that times had changed, however now as the mother of two boys I see the same lunch comparisons coming up much like I had those years ago. Soon after beginning kindergarten, my eldest son came home asking why he didn’t get cookies in his lunch like his friends (up until that point his sugar intake was pretty minimal aside from some natural sugars). I knew he was referring to those multi-coloured sprinkle cookies that attracted kids like a magpie to a shiny object! It dawned on me that in addition to making sure he was getting nutritious food for lunch, the snacks also needed to be trendy food that he and the other kids could relate to, so that he didn’t feel deprived and left out. Here are a couple of my boy’s favourites: Easy Chocolate Avocado Pudding […]
