Are artificial sweeteners making you gain weight?
Artificial sweeteners, even in small amounts, can disrupt normal hormonal and neurological signals making you crave more sweets and feel more hungry. If you’re trying to lose weight, cut out sweets in your diet and artificial sweeteners. Your tastebuds over time will reset to the natural sweetness in foods.  This will help keep cravings in check and make weight loss easier.😊

"thank you for helping me hold my head straight" .
Does your baby suffer from torticollis? This is a stiff neck which results in restricted range of motion, trouble feeding and one fussy baby! .
In newborns, torticollis can happen due to positioning in the womb or after a difficult childbirth. This is called infant torticollis or congenital muscular torticollis.
.
The good news is that chiropractic care can help! . 
Check out this happy baby! Thank you for sharing your story!

Happy Thanksgiving! 🥧🧡
.
I love Thanksgiving because it encourages us to take some time to reflect on what we are thankful and grateful for (although we should do that everyday)!
.
Gratitude is good for our brains and helps with stress, anxiety, and depression. So, let's start taking a few moments everyday to write down some things we are grateful for! 🧡
.
Enjoy this day of indulgence & quality time with loved ones! 🧡

HAPPY WORLD SMILE DAY! Scientists have found that smiling on purpose can help people feel better. Just the simple act of putting a smile on your face can lead you to feel actual happiness, joy, or amusement.

One of my favourite ways to practice self-care is to have a power down hour. A power down hour is when you shut off all your electronics an hour before bed and start winding down for sleep! 💤
.
The blue light that radiates from our phones, computers, TVs, etc. disrupts our circadian rhythm (our bodies natural clock) and causes our bodies to produce daytime hormones, like cortisol. This is why a power down hour is so important! 🙌🏼
.
My power down hour has become a luxurious ritual for myself where I get to practice lots of self-care and love! Some of my favourite things to do during my power down hour are:
.
💗 Making herbal tea
💗 Having a hot shower
💗 Putting lavender oil into my diffuser
💗 Doing a meditation
💗 Doing some gentle stretching
💗 Journalling or colouring
💗 Reading a book
.
What are some ways you wind down for sleep and practice self-care? Let me know in the comments!

October is here and it feels a lot like Fall! I personally love this time of year, it feels like a fresh start. The cooler & cozier weather and the beautiful fall colours. 🍂

Apples are in season & it is always good for us to eat seasonally and locally. Fruits and vegetables provide more flavour and nutrition when you eat according to the seasons, and buying local helps support a small business! 🧡

Apples are a great source of antioxidants & flavonoids. They are also very high in fiber, which helps to improve digestion! So, reach for some local apples while they are still in season. 🍎🍏 .

LONG POST ALERT:::::: *****WHAT ARE PRIMITIVE REFLEXES AND HOW DO THEY IMPACT MY CHILD'S HEALTH***** Primitive reflexes are reflex actions originating in your child’s central nervous system that are exhibited by normal infants in response to particular stimuli. They are pre-programmed into our nervous systems to help us survive and thrive in particular situations. For example, the rooting reflex is present to help infants know to turn their cheek towards food when it is feeding time to help ensure successful breastfeeding. There are more than 10 primitive reflexes that a child is born with. They should only remain active for the first few months of life however, sometimes they can be retained, meaning they remain active for a lot longer. 
Retention of primitive reflexes can be caused by a variety of factors. The birth process is a key factor in the integration and processing of these reflexes. A traumatic birth (a birth with excessive twisting and pulling, a birth using forceps or vacuum extraction or a c-section) may lead to retained reflexes. Additional causes of retained reflexes in children include poor posture, falls, lack of tummy time, delayed or skipping crawling, chronic ear infections, or stress on the child’s spinal column which surrounds their nervous system. 
Retained primitive reflexes in children can lead to development delays, sensory processing disorders, ADHD, autism and bedwetting. If the reflex remains retained into the teenage years and adulthood, they can contribute to issues in coordination, sensory perception, immunity, energy levels, impulse control, concentration, emotional learning and intellectual learning.

Our paediatric examination includes testing of the following primitive reflexes: 
Rooting Reflex
Spinal Gallant Reflex
Palmer Grasp 
Plantar Reflex
Asymmetric Tonic Neck Reflex (ATNR) 
Moro Reflex 
Landau Reflex 
Aside from offering paediatric adjustments, Dr. Jennifer will educate parents on primitive reflex remediation exercises, an integral part of your child’s recovery.

Thanks to @fromtheheartimagery for these cute little toes!

Most of us know WHAT to do. We know that we should probably be drinking more water, we know that eating more greens would improve our health. We know these things. Yet, a lot of us still don't do these things. Why is that? 🤔

It's because knowing ISN'T enough. Knowing something isn't what motivates us to take action. We have tons of information and theories out there. We don't need more information. What we do need is someone to encourage our progress & hold us accountable when we start falling into old negative habits. ♥️

As a health coach, I can help you do this! I can help you discover why you are stuck and create a plan to get you unstuck and experience the changes you want to experience. Let's chat! ☺️ All of my contact info is in my bio ☝🏼

As a holistic nutritionist, I believe that food is medicine. I try to get to the root cause of your issues instead of using a band-aid approach on your symptoms. 🌲

As a holistic nutritionist, we always use food first, but can also make supplement & lifestyle suggestions. When you come to see me we will complete an in-depth consultation to uncover your goals and discuss your health and lifestyle in detail, so we know the best plan of action to move forward. 😄

I can help you use nutrition to address many different health concerns/issues, such as:
.
✨ Digestive issues
✨ Sustainable & healthy weight loss
✨ Hormonal imbalances
✨ Skin issues
✨ Meal planning
✨ Heart health
✨ Fertility, pregnancy/post pregnancy for mom&baby
✨ Coaching on body image & eating disorders

As a coach as well, I can really help you make lasting changes in your life by providing the right system, support, and accountability. ❤️

Bone Broth! So good for digestion, immunity, arthritis, and so much more! 🐖🐄🐔
.
It's really so simple to make & you can adjust it and add any ingredients you like! I made this bone broth with beef bones and you can actually buy a package of bones from Whole Foods or most health food stores. 🐄 You can also just use the carcass after a chicken or turkey dinner!
.
1️⃣ Add the bones to your Crock-Pot or slow cooker
2️⃣ Fill the slow cooker with filtered water, bones should be covered, but don't fill it all the way to the top
3️⃣ Add in any veggies you want! I used onions and garlic in this one, but you could also add celery, carrots, etc.
4️⃣ Add sea salt (for electrolytes) and pepper
5️⃣ Add herbs if you want to! I used rosemary here
6️⃣ Cook on low for about 24 hours
7️⃣ Strain the broth with a mesh strainer
8️⃣ Let your broth cool before storing in refrigerator or freezer
9️⃣ Reheat whenever you want to enjoy some health promoting bone broth!
.
Enjoy! 😋

Repost from @lovepoweredco Dr. Denise’s guest blog post! "The cool lake water slips over my body as I glide through the ripples. I can hear the tiny splashes of my stroke, the distant rumbling of the motor of a boat that just passed by and the wind rustling through, the soon to be, fall coloured trees....I have found my peace, my happy place, and the activity that rejuvenates me and prepares me for what the day, week, month has in store for me" 💗

It is not always easy to find our zen-place, our peace-zone, our happy-place when we are busy making lunches, helping with homework, shuffling kids from here to there, working, maintaining a home, etc etc etc.

Ginger is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Not to mention, it’s delicious too! 
Check out some of these health benefits of ginger root:
- improved digestions - reduced nausea - reduced inflammation - improved brain function - decreased infections - increased detoxification 
We love fresh ginger grated into our stir fries or even just adding it to hot water with lemon as a morning pick me up. What are your favourite ways to eat ginger? .

Hey friends! Ashley Pickett (left), Dr. Denise Handscomb (middle), and Jaklyn Andrews (right) here. We’re the creators of Flourish Prenatal Retreat and we wanted to say hello 👋 👋 👋
We came up with the idea for Flourish a couple years ago when we all sat down together to talk about a different kind of prenatal class. Between the three of us we’re a lactation consultant, infant sleep educator, babywearing educator, parenting coach, naturopathic doctor, naturopathic doula, birth doula, postpartum doula, health researcher and childbirth educator *and also moms* SOOOOO we had a few ideas to float around 😉😅 We came up with the idea to co-teach a class that capitalized on our collective areas of expertise *and* to feature other local prenatal and postpartum experts along the way. We wanted to create a little hub for parents-to-be so they could leave our class feeling informed, supported and connected. Then we figured, since we were going for a kind of one-stop-shop feeling, we might as well throw some meals and snacks and gifts and giveaways into the mix to make it even more fun!
.
We’re hosting our next Flourish Prenatal Retreat on November 3 & 4 2018 and we would LOVE for you to join us. Click on the link in our bio 👆 to find out more, or contact us over at @oakvillefamilybirth or @abaton_integrative_medicine  to find out more!

SCIATICA SUCKS!!! The term sciatica describes leg pain—and possibly tingling, numbness, or weakness—that originates in the lower back and travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg.

Sciatica interferes with your normal daily function, it's hard to walk, hard to work out, and even hard to just sit. Now he is pain-free and back to his normal daily routine! 
Thanks for sharing your story!

Ever notice that walnuts look like a brain? Well, it's a coincidence that walnuts are high in omega -3s that support brain function on many levels. 🧠👌🏼

Omega -3s can help to fight depression, improve your brain health and preserve memory, and improve heart health!

Walnuts are also a great anti-inflammatory food and keep you full for a long time!

Avocados! One of my favourite foods. 🥑
.
Not only are avocados a healthy monounsaturated fat, but they also contain nearly 4 grams of protein - more than any other fruit! 🥑🥑🥑
.
Tip: if you want to prevent your avocado from going brown when they are cut open, sprinkle it with a little bit of lemon or lime juice! 🍋🥑

Did you know eggs are an excellent source of choline? Choline assists in liver function and brain development. Very important!

Eggs are also a great source of healthy fat, but remember to buy free-range eggs instead of the cage-raised. 🍳🍳🍳

School is just around the corner. Is your child’s backpack helping them or HURTING THEM? 🎒🎒🎒 DID YOU KNOW that a backpack weighing more than 15% of your child’s bodyweight can damage their developing spine? 
Follow these tips to make sure that your child’s spine stays healthy throughout this school year: - purchase a backpack with wide straps and individualized compartments to ensure an even weight distribution - always have your child wear their backpack with both straps over their shoulders - pack heavier items towards the bottom of the backpack - carry a lunch bag outside of the backpack to help reduce the load - ensure that the bottom of the backpack is no more than 2 inches lower than your child’s hips (straps should be done up tight)
- make sure that pointy or bulky objects are packed away from the area that rests on your child’s spine to avoid increased muscular tension and shifts of the spine 
If your child is not under regular chiropractic care, check your child’s shoulders and head level at least once a month to determine if they are showing early signs of repetitive stress on their growing spine. 
The shoulders should be level and even when looking from front to back and the head should rest overtop of the shoulders when looking from the side. 
If not, we are here to help!

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH CASTS WEIGH?! We do, they're heavy! Imagine 5-7 extra pounds on one side of your body for 1-2 months while your body heals... that has to cause some damage to the spine due to compensations. 
Well his mom was smart! She brought him into our office to make sure that his spine maintained proper alignment while his arm was in his cast healing. After 1 month and 6 extra pounds on one side, this trooper's spine is still straight as an arrow. #nocompensationsnecessary

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!!! Thanks for sharing your story! .

To salt or not to salt? 🤔

There is a big difference between processed table salt and real sea salt. Next time you are about to salt up your food, reach for the sea salt to enjoy these benefits:
.
⚡Rich in trace minerals
⚡Excellent source of electrolytes
⚡Helps to avoid dehydration & balance body fluids
⚡Aids in digestion by helping us produce enough hydrochloric acid in our stomachs
⚡Helps our bodies absorb more nutrients from the foods we eat
⚡Helps with proper brain and muscle function

Enjoy that sea salt!

Aside from being genetically modified, researchers are warning you to stay away from High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) because they believe that HFCS increases blood fats (called triglycerides) more than the same amount of table sugar does. High triglycerides can lead to higher blood levels of LDL (the bad cholesterol) and to lower blood levels of HDL (the good cholesterol). This is a double whammy that increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. HFCS has also been linked to obesity because HFCS can impair the body’s ability to use minerals such as calcium and chromium- the minerals involved in sugar and fat metabolism. HFCS also doesn't trigger the release of the hormone leptin, which sends out the signal when you’ve eaten enough. This is why when you eat junk food you never truly feel satisfied and want to keep eating.

Poor posture interferes with normal function of the body. When structural shifts in the hips are so bad that you can't even properly do a squat, it's time to do something about it.

We are so proud of these results and the improvement in quality of life and work out ability! Way to go!!! #testimonialtuesday
