Why IV therapy?

I’ve been doing IV therapy for a number of months now with great success.

Here we have a mini-video on IV treatments, to see it click here: Whitney discussing IV Therapy

I have been seeing quite a few patients with a number of disorder who are all benefiting from IV vitamin and nutrient therapy. They include people with fatigue, Crohn’s, collitis, migraines and anemia.

Please give us a call or send a message if you would like more information about IV Therapy.

 

 

Beer Belly Blues – Book Review

I recently read this book when I was asked to by my patient. He is a 60 year old man with a beer belly. This book by Brad King is very easy to read and explains how a man’s body works as his hormones change. There was a lot you could take away from this book and here are some tips you can consider for yourself or the man in your life.

– Have lab blood tests done and analyzed

– Drink more water

– Lift weights – 3 sets of each exercise maximizes the effects

– Consume a Whey protein – get a hormone-free version. We sell some at the clinic.

– Work with a health professional to create a personalized plan for you.

The Happiness Project – Book Review

I had the pleasure of reading this book on my honeymoon – yes I took time to relax with a book. The Happiness Project is a 12 month synopsis of how one normal women brings more happiness into her life. Simple things like singing in the morning to her children and not eating “fake” food.

I liked the fact that she chose to call her tasks resolutions and not goals. Goals are attained and then forgotten, what next? But resolutions are things you are continually striving towards. She had a new resolution each week that she would add to the previous. This book is great for anyone who can have low moods sometimes and for people who want to live their best life and not let their lives pass them by.

This month my resolutions are about work. Week 1: Don’t take work home with you

Try your own happiness project and send me an email or let me know on facebook how you are doing. https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Barrie-Naturopathic-Doctor-Whitney-Young/260230922738

yours in health,

  1. First, rinse quinoa thoroughly in a small strainer. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Put quinoa in water and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook until all water is absorbed (10-15 min).
