The Best Longevity Diet to Live a Healthy Life

Clean eating generally refers to a longevity and healthy diet that is NOT the ‘SAD Diet’ or the Standard North American Diet. The Sad Diet typically consists of ultra-processed foods, added sugar, fat, and sodium. Consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and lean protein is greatly lacking in this diet.Balanced Plates:Balanced eating goes together with clean eating because ‘you can have too much of a good thing’. Balance has to do with managing the amount of ‘macronutrients’ in your diet and on your plate. A ‘balanced plate’, if you were looking from above, might consist of 50% fruit or vegetables, 25% starchy foods (like grains and root vegetables) and 25% protein.Balanced Macronutrients:Macronutrients include carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Many trendy diets base their recommendations on modifying macronutrient intake or portions. What are these macronutrients? Carbohydrates:Carbohydrates (Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Beans!) are a main fuel source and nutrient source for the body. They are the exclusive fuel source for the brain. Carbohydrates provide food for our delicate microbiome (gut bacteria) that perform many crucial functions. The fibers found in most carbohydrates help to aid in detoxification through binding fats and toxins and through improving the quality of elimination (pooping!)Protein:Proteins (Meats, Fish, Beans, Dairy, Eggs ) form the backbone of important hormones. They play a role in important functions such as the formation of your hemoglobin (your blood), thyroid hormone (your internal thermostat) and insulin production (your internal sugar control). Proteins also literally build your muscle, connective tissues etc. Protein deficiency can result in grey, dull skin, acne, hair loss, hair thinning, poor concentration, low energy, fatigue and easy bruising. Proteins break down/provide amino acids that are crucial to many functions including detoxification and metabolism.Functions of Proteins:Fats:Fats (Animal Protein, Fish, [...]

MORA Bioresonance Allergy Test & Treatment

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 [...]

Raising Your Vibration for Whole Health

By Etsuko Ikeda I strongly believe that it is important to keep our vibration level high in order 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 vibration 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. Try these six simple tips to increase your vibration and whole health. Gratitude. End of day, name 1-3 things you are grateful for in your day with big smile. Maybe start a gratitude journal. Choose positive thoughts. Exercise and Nutrition. Find ways of moving joyfully in your body and choose high vibrational foods such as rice, Sake, vegetables, fruits, natural salt and water. Surround yourself with beauty (nutrition for the spirit). Take yourself on your favourite walk/hike in nature, travel (it does not have to be far; beauty may be closer than you think), watch a movie with an uplifting message, read a novel, spend time with pets, call a close friend. Eliminate low vibrational activities and events. Stay away from those who complain much of the time and give yourself a break from constant intake of social media. Organize messy rooms. Refrain from junk food and additives as [...]

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: […]

Emotional Freedom Technique

By Dr. Angelina Riopel, ND EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture. Instead of needles, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem – whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. — and voice positive affirmations.

The Energy of Fear

By Marco Rosada, Biofield Therapist Human biofield: where fear energy sits. Biofields are any electromagnetic energy field (1) pertaining to any living being. The human biofield (2), also called the human energy body, is the energetic blueprint or matrix that creates the human form. Every human being and every living creature on this planet has such a blueprint. The human biofield is made of morphogenetic (3), etheric fields (4), and other special fields, each of which has different functions and roles. For instance, our physical, mental, and emotional health states are reflected in a section of our biofield called Aura or Auric body, which can be measured, read, and interpreted for therapeutic purposes. This field consists of multiple bands of energy called auric layers or auric fields that encompass the subtle body, connecting us to the outside world energetically. Human biofield is also responsible for the dynamic communication between systems, organs, and cells in our physical body that are connected by a flow of energy that contains information about their health, function, feelings, and our perception of the surrounding environment. In our biofield, the energy of long-lasting fear behaves similarly to that of some of the most health-threatening feelings like hate, resentment, lack of self-esteem, or sense of guilt. Fear causes a generalized drop in the biofield frequency rate that, depending on its severity can cause physical discomforts and mental imbalance. […]

Maintaining Holiday Cheer During COVID-19

By Lise Fitzsimmons MA, RP (Q), Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) One of the goals with Psychotherapy is to increase your sense of wellbeing and to help you gain a fuller understanding of yourself and your feelings. Therapy seeks to provide you healthy coping skills in response to challenging experiences and feelings. While the holidays do not necessarily exacerbate mental health specifically, they do have a tendency to create additional stress. The additional stress can then trigger anxiety and depression, and this year it is complicated by the pandemic. I am including some tips that I hope will be useful. […]

Men’s Health During the Winter Season

By Xianmin Yu, R.TCMP & R.Ac According to the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), men’s kidney essence starts to decline at the age of 40. It is time for you to do some preparation to deal with this natural process, especially during the severe cold winter. How can you manage to strengthen your body and relieve the stress and pressure of work? TCM has already given you the guidance in its classic “Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic”, i.e., nourishing your kidneys and storing the essence. According to TCM, the human body corresponds to natural seasons, i.e., the liver corresponding to spring, the heart corresponding to early to middle summer, the spleen corresponding to middle to late summer, the lung corresponding to autumn, and the kidney corresponding to winter. The warm spring nourishes the liver, while the hot summer nourishes the heart and the spleen. After the cool autumn nourishes the lungs, the cold winter is around the corner. Winter is the season of replenishing energy and nourishing the kidney. It is a perfect time for kidney to store its essence and consolidate your body foundation. Thus, here are a few important suggestions for you to consider. […]

To Zoom or not to Zoom?

By Monica Grainger, MSW, RSW Recently, a NY Times writer David Streitfeld published an article, “The Long, Unhappy History of Working From Home,” claiming people are more productive working at the office than working from home. Streitfeld cited research dating back to the early 1980’s to 2009 where prodigious companies, such as Google and IBM, declared there was greater productivity, team innovation, creativity, and availability if employees worked in the office compared to working from home. Research dating back 40 years investigating the plausibility of working from home versus in-office work is outdated and tangential with the advent of online video conferencing. Applications, such as Zoom, Face-time, and other online Hiipa compliant video conference technology, are more sophisticated in our present time and available to a larger population. Hence, team innovation and creativity, accountability, and availability are now made possible for many work groups to meet through video conferencing.  […]
