A new offering from my fabulous colleague Jessica McDonald, contact her if you’re interested in more details on the work of Somatic Experiencing.

Look at this! I'm officially an SEP, or Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. I've done all the things to get this beautiful piece of paper. Now, what does this mean?

I'm still a registered acupuncturist, but now my practice, treatments, and intention have shifted slightly. I offer acupuncture and trauma informed touch, which can help to support you to feel more like yourself.

This work feels like magic. I will share more about my personal experience and other info as it has a chance to settle in and integrate into my own nervous system.

The body is a wild ride. If you are curious to discover, uncover, recover, or tune in to yours, reach out. I am so happy that you are here and look forward to working with you.

Cuddy has completed his puppy kindergarten classes and is progressing well. It’s hard to believe he’s 5 months old now since he’s almost as tall as his auntie Nisha. His training will be ongoing though I’m hoping we’re just about done with teething. Thanks everyone for your patience with this sweet baby.

Poodle pop quiz, let’s see who knows the them best. Below I have puppy pics of them at about the same age, which one is which?
PS I’m not diabolical they really are not the same, nor did I include pics of any of their siblings.

Announcing new 🐩 Cuddy 🥰
I’m easing him into clinic dog duties because he’s quite little and has a longer commute than when Nisha started as a puppy.

He’s still getting used to spending time in a Ex pen, without wailing and carrying on about it so many thanks to the longtime clients who are acting as his training partners while he learns how to be chill in a kennel. The top pic was less than 30 minutes into his first shift! Good boy Cuddy!

It’s that time of year again… zucchini season! My garden is plentiful with them so I thought I’d share a few new favourite recipes and invite people to share some ideas. Last night I made this lemon zucchini loaf and had to exercise great restraint because 😋 I also made a chicken parmigiana variation I’ll post in the comments, it used tomatoes from the garden too and was light and full of flavour.

Make this easy gluten-free lemon zucchini bread with simple ingredients for a dairy-free, refined sugar-free quick bread everyone will love!

So more interesting info for all of you concerned about losing your Natural Health Products (NHPs) this one made me 😡

Most of you know the federal govt snuck a significant change regarding NHPs into a budget bill C-47. Perhaps you’ve seen news reports on legacy media indicating NHPs aren’t safe because they’re not regulated adequately like pharmaceuticals are. Perhaps you even feel some of the proposed changes, fees etc could be reasonable.

As the song says ‘stop right there, I gotta know right now’ I present you with an excellent example of why our NHPs including TCM herbals need to be left the heck alone.

Straight from the source! So don’t believe me peruse what HC reports from its database of Adverse Reactions (AR) NHPs make up 0.9-2% of the total reports in any given year 🤯

So we are to believe it is justified that for the 0.9% of ARs reported in 2017, over 70% of Canadians should be denied access to: vitamins, minerals, homeopathics, TCM Herbs, Ayurveda, and other supplements they choose to use to support their health?

Please print this, attach a one page letter calling for the repeal of sections 500-504 of Bill C-47 and send it to your MP, the PMO, MOH and the a few more bureaucrats at Health Canada.

Time is important, schedule a few minutes to connect weekly with your MP and impress upon them that NHPs should be left alone.

Here is how to contact the people you need to call and write to to save your right to NHPs. On the issue volume and repetition matter. Filling in a survey or an online petition is not likely to be enough. Below in the comments I have a link on how to draft your letters.

By way of example HC has already lost a case on labeling and claims to True Hope. True Hope supplements a Cardston, Ab company researched and formulated their products to help people with depression and other mental health issues. HC did not appeal, and yet they seem to be taking another avenue to get True Hope and other supplements off the market largely by making a ridiculously complex and expensive compliance structure. I’ll post more on True Hope another time.

Here is another chance for feedback, please don’t let this be instead of writing and calling your MP

This consultation was deliberately stealth & short and an extension was forced 🤨. Please have your say and help keep our Natural Health Products! I will post contact info for the Health Minister, PMO & a link to find your MPs contact shortly. If you write your MP cc the MOH & PMO

The purpose of this consultation is to get your feedback on the fee proposal for natural health products.

And so it starts, sadly way faster than we thought I share a post from a TCM colleague who is also trained in TCM oncology. So far we are hearing at least 20% of companies are just moving to US or elsewhere given that the US Market is 9-10 times larger it makes sense.

Please CALL, WRITE & BOOK A MEETING with your MP before all choice is lost. Make some noise

Did you know Pure North was a local Calgary initiative? Allan Markin from CNRL founded the project to help lower income seniors and those with less access to health care options, he also established research funds in health at U of A, U of C and U of L. They did some excellent research and their products are still available through some Naturopaths and from the website though the store fronts closed in 2020.

I post this link as there are some good research findings in this thread, particularly for those with diabetes or chronic inflammation who need supplemental Vit D, mental health which benefits from a good multivitamin and a study they did tracking healthcare visits in over 4100 participants compared to 20 000+ non participants and found savings to tax payers!

Including articles like these and a personalized letter when you write or call your MP, the Minister of Health and Prime Minister’s Office helps more than filling out an online petition or email both of which are easy to ignore. A colleague attended a meeting hosted by her MP and he confirmed that electronic media is easier to dismiss. Three people at a constituency office with the same issue was noted. She was also ready with some specifics and data the MP was unaware of.

Did you know the fines are set increase from $5000 to $5 000 000 yes that’s correct 5 million PER DAY of the alleged infringement and Health Canada is calling this “cost recovery” On top of site licensing and per product licensing fees annually I doubt any small to medium size retailers can afford this for even a single incident.

More reasons why you need to maintain YOUR access to supplements, convalescence is a time of high nutrition demand and with aging come a decline in mitochondrial activity. Other reasons you may experience a decline in mitochondrial function are surgeries, chemotherapy, critical illness, falls or accidents even a flare in a chronic condition like arthritis increases your energy demands for a period of time that differs for everyone.

Remember mitochondria are the power house of the cell, in TCM we often use the term to Qi to cover a variety of expressions of mitochondrial function.

Write and call your MP, share this or other articles and express your desire to keep self determination of your healthcare.

Persistent physical impairment is frequently encountered after critical illness. Recent data point towards mitochondrial dysfunction as an important d…

Let’s talk another supplement that could have a massive impact if it becomes…. unavailable. Probiotics, most people think of them after they’ve had a round of antibiotics for whatever reason. Newer research suggests they have a role in treating depression whether or not medication is prescribed.

The field of nutritional psychiatry is relatively new and more important than ever, given the shortage of mental health professionals. Good nutrition is important and supplements have a role too. We need more options for treatment not less.

Write your MP, the Health Minister office of the Prime Minister and remember that mail to the government is free! So please print articles like this or the NHPPA position paper and send them as a
attachments. Letters and calls are better than emails which are easily ignored.

Depression is a multifaceted psychiatric disorder mainly orchestrated by dysfunction of neuroendocrine, neurochemical, immune, and metabolic systems. The interconnection of gut microbiota perturbation with the central nervous system disorders has been well documented in recent times. Indeed, alterat...

Health Canada wants to make significant regulatory changes to natural health products.

The natural health product sector is part of your everyday life. 71% of Canadians use natural health products like vitamins, toothpaste, sunscreen and more – as part of their proactive health and wellbeing.

This sector consists of 54,000 hardworking employees across Canada, who contribute $5.5B to the Canadian economy, including $2.8B in tax revenue. As part of many Canadians’ proactive healthcare, it helps alleviate some of the burdens on a stretched healthcare system.

These unnecessary changes will treat natural health products like pharmaceutical drugs. This over-regulation will negatively impact how NHP brands can do business, forcing a downstream effect on retailers and consumers.

It is inconceivable to me that we live in a world where drugs are now the leading cause of death in BC and increasing at an alarming rate around the world; yet somehow Health Canada has deemed supplements as so potentially dangerous they must be banned.

HC has chosen not to offer any evidence, cases or citations for review or debate 🤨 Attached is one of the first studies examining longterm safety in micronutrient supplementation for mental health issues.

The TIME is NOW to mobilize or we will lose all our supplements whether from a regulated health professional, grocery store, natural health store even from direct sales companies like Young Living, Modere, DoTerra etc

CALL or Write your MP - calls and physical letters are difficult to ignore, emails are easy to ignore.

Contacts your suppliers and join their campaign.

Book a meeting with your MP, again if thousand of requests flood to their offices all saying LEAVE our Supplements alone it will be noticed.

Objectives: There is an increasing body of literature documenting the efficacy of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) interventions for the treatment of psychiatric problems in the short term; however, long-term safety is largely unexplored. The goal of this observational stud...
