Today's gentle reminder is to stay hydrated with water💧

Water is essential in delivering oxygen throughout your body, keeping your body functioning and well hydrated. Water aids digestion, removes waste, regulates your body temperature, boosts your energy, maintains blood pressure and so much more.

What's for breakfast? When you hear people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it's true, and for good reason. Breakfast helps replenish the stores of energy and nutrients in your body. It improves your energy, mood and ability to concentrate. Breakfast also helps with weight management, and reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other illnesses. By making breakfast part of your daily routine, you are more likely to meet the recommended daily intake of fibre, vitamins and minerals.

Some great breakfast ideas include rolled oats, wholegrain cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruits, wholemeal, wholegrain or sourdough toast, poached or boiled eggs, raw nuts, nut butters (like peanut or almond butter) and smoothies made from fresh fruit or vegetables. There is so much variety and a lot to love about breakfast!

Making time to enjoy the outdoors, nature and fresh air comes with lots of health benefits - such as reducing anxiety, stress hormone levels, blood pressure and improving immune system function, self-esteem and mood. Being outside also means you can increase your vitamin D levels from the sun and improve your physical health by incorporating outdoor activities such as long walks or bike rides. Today I am reminding you to take in all the fresh air you need and deserve! Have a great week ahead💕

What is chelation therapy?

Chelation therapy is a way to remove unwanted substances such as toxic metals, chemical toxins, mineral deposits, and fatty plaques that have built up in the body. These dangerous substances can create free radical oxidation which can damage cells.

A chelating agent, taken orally or injected into the bloodstream, can bind to the metals and remove them from the body through the urine. This can prevent or reverse their negative effects allowing oxygen and nutrient rich blood to flow freely through the arteries.

What do we do?
A urine test is performed before and after a challenge of the chelating agent. This allows us to see your current exposure of toxins as well as what has been stored long-term in your tissues. Following this challenge, a series of twice weekly treatments occur. Depending on the level of toxic load in the system, 10-30 treatments may be needed.

Get in touch today to discuss if chelation therapy is right for you.

S*X! It can be healing in many different ways. Here are 3 research proven ways it can benefit your health:

#1: It’s good for your heart❤️

Regular s*x has shown to increase your heart rate variability (HRV) – a marker for heart health. Higher HRV is an indicator of resilience and flexibility. A low HRV has been linked to risk of cardiovascular disease, depression, and anxiety. People with higher HRV also show improved mood, attention, self-regulation, responsiveness to emotional experiences and more resilience to stress. Additionally, s*x at least once in a two-week period shown less blood pressure increase and faster recovery time during times of stress.


#2: It boosts your immune system💪

S*xual arousal and or**sm can increase your immune cells, in particular natural killer cells (NK cells). These fighter cells provide rapid response to virus infected cells as well as tumor formation. More NK cells can lead to a quicker response and shortened recovery time to viral infections in the body.


#3: It helps you live longer☀️

When comparing those who have regular s*x less than once per month, between once per week and once per month, and two or more times per week, research found that the more s*x one was having, the longer they lived. These studies included death from all causes. Therefore, s*x more often can increase your lifespan.

Understanding the benefits of s*xual activity can encourage people to work on their own s*xual wellness in order to obtain a better quality of life. Desire can be affected by many factors. Changes in hormones, neurotransmitters, stress, attraction, pain, and grief can all affect desire.

Stay tuned for simple tips to boost your libido.

What is Chelation Therapy?

Chelation therapy is a way to remove unwanted substances such as toxic metals, chemical toxins, mineral deposits, and fatty plaques that have built up in the body. These dangerous substances can create free radical oxidation which can damage cells.

Look back if you missed my last post to see if you may be affected by these toxins.

A chelating agent, taken orally or injected into the bloodstream🩸, can bind to the metals 🧲 and remove them from the body through the urine. This can prevent or reverse their negative effects allowing oxygen and nutrient rich blood to flow freely through the arteries.

What do we do?
A urine test is performed before and after a challenge of the chelating agent. This allows us to see your current exposure of toxins as well as what has been stored long-term in your tissues.

Heavy Metal Toxicity

No not heavy metal music overload. Heavy metal toxicity is from exposure in the environment to metals such as aluminum, lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, etc. These metals can have mild to severe symptoms and lead to detrimental health effects.

Sources of metals in the environment:
💦Water pipes
⛽️Leaded gasoline and paint (discontinued but lead can stay in your system for decades)
😅Antiperspirants
🐠Fish
🕷Insect killer sprays
🚬Cigarettes
🎨Paint
🦷Mercury tooth amalgam fillings
💉Vaccines
🌾Pesticides
🪵Wood preservatives
🍶Pottery

Signs of heavy metal toxicity:
-Arthritis
-Atherosclerosis (plaques in blood vessels)
-Autism
-Behaviour and learning disorders
-Diabetes
-Eczema
-Fatigue
-High blood pressure
-Infertility
-Kidney damage
-Loss of sensation in fingers and toes
-Muscle weakness
-Neurological disfunction: brain fog, poor memory, headaches, Alzheimer’s disease

Exposure to heavy metals can happen daily. Our bodies naturally get rid of metals through our urine and stool. However, excess exposure or reduced ability to detoxify can lead to buildup in our blood vessels, lungs, brain, kidneys and bones.

Chelation therapy can help eliminate these stored metals from our bodies. Stay tuned for more information about chelation therapy.

Book an appointment today to find out if you’re at risk of metal toxicity.

Part 2: Simple, everyday tips to increase libido.

Go back an IG post if you missed part 1.

Here are more ideas to ignite your s*xual energy:

#5: Practice your pelvic floor exercises – bring blood flow to your pelvis. This can be done anywhere, anytime. Find triggers throughout the day to remind yourself to do it – traffic lights, washing dishes, boring meetings, or getting into bed. To increase the benefit, add breath work and meditation 🧘‍♀️(maybe not in those boring meetings).

#6: Jade egg exercises – another spin on pelvic floor workouts. The best tool to strengthen these muscles and activate your ge****ls. Plus, there’s the other benefits of reducing urinary incontinence and having better or**sm. 🏆

#7: Breast massage – this is more important for the females. Our breasts are our “positive poles” equivalent to the p***s in males – according to Taoist S*xology. Stimulation, love and care for our breasts can be a powerful way to bring s*xual energy back into our lives 🔥

These simple tools practiced daily can create big changes to your desire, energy and s*x life. Tune into your s*xuality and nourish your vitality.

If your low libido is persistent, book an appointment to investigate the root cause. Imbalances in s*x hormones, thyroid hormone, iron or vitamin levels could contribute.

Simple, everyday tips to increase libido, part 1.

It’s all too common to be stuck in a rut and disconnected from our s*xuality. Sometimes we just need a little stimulation to reignite our imagination. Here are some easy ways to spark your libido:

#1: Daydream – take a few minutes every day to think about what turns you on. Imagine scenarios that get you excited. Draw from past experiences that were hot and heavy or even think about unrealistic situations that turn you on. Be creative.

#2: Read erotica – find a juicy book to get you going. This is especially good if you don’t know where to start. It can help you get ideas and explore new scenarios that get you hot 🔥

#3: Build anticipation – take a few moments throughout the day for foreplay with your partner. Stolen kisses, subtle touching, s*xy messages. Focus on being turned on, not getting it done.

#4: Create the right ambiance – solo or with a partner, set the scene with music, candles, bubble bath 🛀. Little changes can make a big difference.

Stay tuned to part 2 for more ways to boost your libido.

If your low libido is persistent, book an appointment to investigate the root cause. Imbalances in s*x hormones, thyroid hormone, iron or vitamin levels could be the cause.

Support Your Immune System with IV Therapy

There are many ways to support your immune system. Having a whole food diet, moderate exercise, and a good laugh can all improve your body's fighter cells. Sometimes we want to incorporate something a little stronger to give us the boost we need. Intravenous (IV) Therapy can help.

Our immune systems need specific nutrients to perform at their best. Many of these nutrients are lacking due to little variety in diet, decreased digestion leading to poor absorption, high athletic demands, and higher demand because of chronic disease or poor lifestyle choices. Intravenous (IV) Therapy can replenish these vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the blood stream to enable the immune system to work optimally.

My Immune Boosting IV includes:
Vitamin C
Thiamine (B1)
Dexpanthenol (B5)
Pyridoxine (B6)
B-Complex
Methycobalamin (B12)
Calcium
Magnesium
Selenium
Zinc
Multi-trace minerals
Glutathione

These nutrients work together for powerful antiviral and antioxidant activity. They help with cellular repair and growth to maintain good health. Additionally, glutathione protects immune cells from damage and helps them function optimally. The Immune Booster IV also replenishes fluids keeping the body hydrated, another important aspect in immune health.

Book an appointment with me to super-charge your immune system. Book online at Synergea.ca or call 403.247.2947

08/09/2020

Alternating hot and cold water is a simple yet powerful way to improve your health. It can stimulate white blood cell production – our immune system fighters. It also increases metabolism, circulation, oxygen absorption, and carbon dioxide excretion. It’s a great way to get blood flowing in these stagnant times of isolation.

What to do:
First start with a hot shower. Be sure to get nice and warm. Follow with turning the tap all the way cold. Stay in the cold for as long as is bearable, anywhere from 2 to 30 seconds. Then return it to hot for 3 minutes. Repeat this two to three more times, finishing your shower with cold.

If it’s too tough to take, direct the cold phase water only on the feet. Over time you can increase to legs, abdomen, and chest. .
To take it a step further you can alternate hot and cold water in buckets with the hot water at 40 degrees Celsius and the cold bucket between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius with added ice. .
Repeat this daily if possible or a minimum of 3 times per week. Notice a feeling of exhilaration and increased energy after each treatment.

Talk to your health care practitioner if you have any existing health concerns that might be impacted by this treatment.
