Hello Lovelies!

Here we are at the beginning of a new school year and fast approaching the end of summer. Did you enjoy it fully? Are you rested, full of vitamin D and ready to reach new goals?

Personally, I very much enjoyed the summer. The gardens offered us bountiful amounts of veggies, fruits and herbs. We also took advantage of the time for camping, travelling, biking, loads of baseball and installing a pool! I loved every cool and sunny day, just as much as the cool water on the really hot days! We made a point of getting our vitamin D and are completely ready to conquer new goals.

What’s new?

We now have ISA’S HEALTH CAPSULES. These are short videos offering you tips and information on different subjects all health related.

We will also offer more classes and workshops: RAW/LIVING FOODS, MEDITATION, S.E.M. (Health, Balance and Better Living), and a new course, HEALTH-CHALLENGE. In this 1 hour, 10 week class, we will conquer a new health related challenge every week.

Make sure you to give your name and preference/availability for class hours and dates for classes that are of interest to you because spaces are limited. Classes will start in the week of SEPTEMBER 21st. It is possible to have day or evening classes and we will wait for your confirmations before giving a set date and time for the classes.

Finally, if it is not already done, make sure you are registered to our BLOG and E-LETTER as to receive directly in your inbox, all my heath & wellness news, tips and recommendations!

Stay healthy and see you soon!

April 2015 Natural Healing Journal

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Detox, Health Journal, Healthy Living, Raw

It’s official, we are now into spring and not a moment too soon! I hope you’re enjoying it just as much as we are? Even though the days are taking their sweet time feeling warm, the earth is still warming up.  We can tell with all the changes happening around and within us. It is actually a perfect time to do some cleanup, a detox and even a fast. Each year, I take advantage of this time to do both, and this year was no different.  

Aside the fact that my entire system clears up and I feel completely ready for a great summer, I usually learn something at a deeper level during this cleansing period.  This time, it was regarding lists.  With the busy lives that we all lead, to-do lists are becoming more and more popular.  I for one have a to-do list for just about everything in my life. I would even go as far as to say that I have found myself spending more energy in the “DOING”, then in the “BEING”.  We get so busy and caught up in doing stuff, that we may forget how important it is just to BE. This has now become my new goal, to BE.  While I will continue to have to-do lists so I may make progress towards all of my goals, I will now create the time to BE. It is not an easy task to BE, as it requires us to slow down and not be in a perpetual state of doing, but rather to take time to feel and live.  

Along with this new goal, Centre Natural Healing will be offering more meditation classes this session.  We will take advantage of the warmer weather to practice meditation inside as well as outside and in both sitting and mobile postures.  Each class will offer a different THEME, and our goal will be to explore two meditation practices during our workshop hour.  Registration is now open, so take advantage of this time to secure your spot!  

Last month we had our first raw food workshop and what a yummy success it was!  This month we are offering you the English version of the workshop: Basics, Tools & Techniques.  If you weren’t able to join us last month for this class, or if you wanted to join in but preferred the English version, now’s your chance! We will also be offering the workshop: Smoothies & More, (bilingual or French).  Come and join us for these healthy-habit workshops, learn new recipes and taste why raw eating is becoming so popular! Register now because places are limited!  

Centre Natural Healing will be offering different courses and workshops (Natural Creams & Cosmetics, Natural Spa, etc.) during the summer months, so please remember to subscribe to our blog to stay current and informed!  Registration comes along with a FREE gift to you – 30 DAYS OF INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES sent directly to your inbox. Not only will you be registered and aware of all what’s new, you will also receive our new blog posts, recipes, health tips, positive quotes, etc.

JANUARY 2015 NATURAL HEALING JOURNAL

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Health Journal, Inspiration, Naturopathy, Photos

Happy New Year dear friends and loyal readers! May 2015 be YOUR year! I wish you peace, love, abundance, prosperity, health and above all, may you find joy in all of life’s moments!

Here at Centre Natural Healing, we have had a wonderful 2014 and feel very excited about starting a brand new year. As always, a new year is like a new chapter in our personal book. It gives us the feeling of a new start: brings possibilities and new found hope.

At the end of 2014, I completed another detox and cleanse. For those who know me well, you are probably wondering why I chose to do this so late in the year. Well, it certainly is not the ideal time, but I felt it needed to be done. I was feeling tired, unmotivated and sluggish, and I certainly was experiencing difficulty with my digestion. All around, I was not at my best. So I choose to go for it and what a detox/fast it was! I don’t remember it being so great in the past! When what you are doing is not giving you the results you want, do something different. This is exactly what I did. I had a 10 day fast and it was life changing for me. My objectives became clear and I set new goals. I am happy to report that only half way through January, I have already reached a few of those goals. Here are a few of these new and exciting things going on:

I now have a brand new space for classes and workshops here at Centre Natural Healing. I just finished it this week and it looks great!
2015-01-18 13.19.54 2015-01-18 13.24.20

I am now on a fully raw diet and cannot believe all the positive physical, mental and emotional changes. I am ready to help and coach anyone who wishes to take their own diet to a new level!
2015-01-18 13.33.20

I have adding new classes and workshops within a better diversified and flexible timetable! Make sure you check out our SCHEDULE regularly for new classes/workshops being offered.

I am so excited and blessed! I do hope you will join our Natural Healing Community so we may make 2015 your best year ever. I look forward to sharing all those wonders with you!

Create a wonderful year!
With love,

September 2014 Natural Healing Journal

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Health Journal, Health News, Healthy Living, Inspiration, Life Coaching, Natural Healing

Can you believe we are already in September? Time flies when we are living a great life, n’est-ce pas?

I do hope you have had a wonderful and beautiful summer. On our end, we very much enjoyed the hot days, when they where around, the full gardens which are still continuing to offer us perfect veggies and medicinal plants and a slower pace. I would even go as far as to say that the summer has changed me. I am a new person, who has recently recognized that fear that was hiding behind a need to be very busy, overly busy!

It is said that over-indulging in anything masks some kind of lack that we may be feeling. In all honesty, I agree! I was over compensating to numb my insecurities of making it on my own, of not being enough. Once I took notice that my need to be so busy was rooted in my need for self-worth, the healing began. Don’t get me wrong, I still love to be busy, have lots of fun projects going on at the same time and enjoy my life fully, but the motivation behind it all has changed. I don’t feel a need to please or a need to prove. I have changed that for a fulfilling sense of contentment.

How about you, do you over work, over exercise, over party? Do you ‘over-do’ things? Have you ever taken the time to see if it could possibly be masking a deeper feeling? Or do you feel balanced, in-sync with your life?

I guess in the end, it is all about knowing who you truly are and what you truly wish to live on a daily basis in your life. September is a great month to focus on your goals and to make sure they are pointing in the right direction. If setting new goals or bringing new urgency to your already existing ones is a priority and you wish to get some assistance with that, it will be my pleasure to serve you. You can contact me at (514) 893-1920 or via email at isabelle@centrenaturalhealing.com

Week 32: Watch a TV show in another language. It is a great way to broaden your knowledge of other cultures. Of course you want to do this when you feel calm and open. It is a wonderful and simple way to enjoy the brain-building it will foster.
Personally, I love to watch foreign movies and even better if they have sub-titles, but that could just be me!

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I am so proud and excited to announce that we have several new classes being offered this year. We have a total of 4 different classes on meditation and wellness as well as many conferences/workshops on Raw Eating. More classes and workshops will be added regularly so make sure you stop by often to check out what we are up to. You can always access this information by pressing the SERVICE button on our site HERE. You can also find all the details to these in the Natural Healing Journal, so if you are not signed up for it yet, make sure you do that.  You can subscribe by entering your name address on the right hand side of any page of the website.

Registration is now on for our Courses and Conferences. We would love to have you join us. You can register for all the classes in one series or opt for the drop-in option. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings at different times. For extra information or to book an appointment for a Health Service, you can reach me at (514) 893-1920 or isabelle@centrenaturalhealing.com

May 2014 Natural Healing Journal

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Health Journal, Health News, Healthy Living, Inspiration, Life Coaching, Positive Thinking, Spirituality

We are just about half way through 2014, and I am loving this year so far! I wouldn’t say it is anything major that has happened, it is just a bunch of smaller things coming together. It is the details left over from the big change that are falling into place. Now, if you are in this same place, you can relate and even share some happy thoughts with me. However, if you are at the edge of a big change or in the process of it, it may not be great or even close to being funny. What I am getting at though, is that everything has its season. Everything passes. Everything is cyclical: the good, the bad and the ugly! So if you presently find yourself in a valley, just remember that it will shift and you will soon find yourself climbing out of that valley. If you are walking on the mountain top, stay focused and be grateful for all your blessings so the Universe is clear on what you love and what is important to you.

On that same note, we are all faced with drama. I have heard many express how they are so done with drama. Remember the driving force behind drama is our emotions and behind emotions are beliefs. Beliefs are what create our every day reality. It is not the drama we need to focus on, but rather on our belief system if we wish to make any true and permanent changes in our lives. Drama can be great, especially when it is filled with love and laughter.

So how can you concretely create and live good drama, set your beliefs in line with what you truly desire to see manifest in your life and live the life you wish to lead?

Use this one tips and see your life start to transform itself: LIVE IN A STATE OF GRATITUDE!

I know, I know, you’ve heard it before and maybe you are thinking to yourself, “I have been!”. If you have been, and you are seeing results, regardless of what they are, BE GRATEFUL. Then, if you wish to tweek the results, along with holding gratitude in your heart, adjust your thoughts and words to reflect that gratitude at all times. If you are in a state of gratitude you will feel energetic, optimistic, happy, still, etc. When you are in such a state, you will attract it back to you. I am not saying that it is easy and I am not suggesting that it doesn’t require constant monitoring of your thoughts, but like everything else in life, practice makes perfect. And you can do this!

Mentors and coaches are a great help. I use them all the time. If you would like extra support on this please contact me directly at isabelle@centrenaturalhealing.com. It will be my pleasure to serve you!

Week 16: Brush your teeth while standing on one leg. “It gets you to balance,” says SUCCESS contributing editor Mike Roizen, M.D., co-author with Mehmet Oz, M.D., of the best-selling YOU series of books. Doing this actually helps keep you focused and allows you to work your core muscles while doing a simple, daily task.
