Keeping the Flu Away

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Natural Healing

HEALTH TIP: It’s unfortunate to see some people getting sick with the flu. It’s important to keep your neck well covered and to increase your immunity during the colder months.  With the holidays just around the corner, it is especially important to strengthen your immune system. We all know what sugar and bad food combinations can do.

So what can you do? Increase your intake of vitamin C and use probiotics for the next three weeks. If that is not sufficient,  drink plenty of fresh water, sleep enough, exercise, keep healthy thoughts and supplement with garlic.

The Feel-Good Hormones

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Natural Healing

HEALTH TIP: To feel better, happy and more energetic, we need for our bodies to create and release endorphin and serotonin hormones. For this to occur, we need to get active and spend more time outside and in the sun.

It goes without saying that eating healthy is crucial, as well as supplementing with vitamin B, C and D.

Maintaining a Healthy pH Balance

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Natural Healing

HEALTH TIP: At this time of the year, lots of people are turning to citrus as a source of vitamin C. With the lack of vitamin D from the sun and an unbalanced diet, some of these people are suffering from a very acidic pH level which is one of the main causes of illness and pains.

To balance out your blood pH level;

1- choose healthy organic foods instead of processed and fast foods

2- favour white meats instead of red

3- cut the sugar!!!

Here are two great recipes to get your system alkaline and it flush out. Take only ONE of these per day, before breakfast, on an empty stomach and use pure water that is heated on the stove: 8 oz of warm water with 30 ml of organic apple cider vinegar (to alkalize) or 8 oz of pure warm water with juice from 1/2 an organic lemon (to flush out the system).

Calming Effects with Herbal Tea

The other morning when I got up, I could feel that my mind/Spirit was in need of some calming effects. Sometimes this sensation is due to a lack of sleep, poor eating habits and even stress. In any of these situations, it often leads to unbalanced pH level in the body and a lack of stillness, clarity, focus and strength. So, I decide to quick fix this.

I prepared for my regular meditation time, did a little yoga, drank my full glass of water and made sure I ate properly. To this I added my very simple brew:

Freshwater, chamomile, and stinging nettle. Two great medicinal plants to help strengthen and calm the nervous system and balance out the pH levels in the body.

To create this great and potent herbal tea;
1 Tble organic, fresh or dried Roman chamomile
1 Tble organic, fresh or dried stinging nettle
2 cups fresh water

Put all the ingredients together and bring to a boil. Just before the boiling point, remove from the heat source and let steep for 5-6 minutes. You can easily drink up 4-5 cups a day. Enjoy!
