If someone asked me how I was doing over the last three months I could easily have said “stressed”.
I have taken on a couple of major projects that probably should not have been attempted at the same time, I have had two significant staff changes, and I’m training for the CN Tower Climb. Add on to that family commitments and a full-time job and it’s easy to see how my plate got too full too fast.
So what’s my secret to keeping it all together?
Here are 3 important keys to stress management that I not only practice, but also preach to my patients:

Needed this one….has been a very crazy couple of months. I was doing some Yin Yoga a few years ago but stopped. I really liked on by Ester Ekhart…loved her accent and calming voice.
Could you please recommend a good protein product
It depends on the person. Not all protein powders are created equal. I don’t use the same one with every patient. Personally I currently use the Paleo Protein powder by Designs for Health, but will also rotate through different medical foods like UltraInflamX360 by Metagenics, UltraMeal360 by Metagenics, and SynerClear by VitaAid. The medical foods usually use rice protein as the base because it is anti-inflammatory.
In general you want to look for one that is low in sugar and non dairy-based (caesin and whey are more likely to cause leaky gut syndrome) but it is best to speak with your naturopath at your next visit to see which one is best for you.
Woud you send me the website adress and your instructor’s name🤗
I go to a class at Mindful Movements here in Belleville.
