Facing Seasonal Depression
The Truth Behind Seasonal Depression There are a number of misconceptions when it comes to seasonal affective disorder. For example: Myth #1 People suffering from SAD are depressed throughout the year. This may be true for some cases, but certainly not all. Myth #2 SAD isn’t a serious condition and doesn’t require medical treatment. Depending on the severity of symptoms, SAD can be crippling, severely hindering a person’s ability to function normally. Myth #3 SAD only occurs during fall and winter. While the majority of cases do occur during fall and winter, it is possible for people to suffer through the illness during the warmer months. Myth #4 SAD only impacts people living in gloomy, overcast climates. The majority of cases occur more frequently in northern climates, however SAD can just as easily occur in warmer climates as well. Myth #5 The only way to get through SAD is to ride it out until the seasons change. There are lots of techniques for preventing and lessening symptoms.

Have you ever heard we only use 10 percent of our brain power? This is a common myth believed by two-thirds of the population! This is a false assumption. While there may be moments, such as when we are at rest, that only a small portion of the brain is in use, we regularly use virtually every part of the brain and most of the brain is active almost all of the time. The brain acts as the main command center for every function, though, and feeling we experience. The average human brain weighs approximately 3 pounds and uses 20% of the body’s energy. Most of the energy consumed by the brain is attributed to the rapid firing of millions of neurons communicating with each other. The rest is used for both voluntary and involuntary activities such as driving a car or controlling body temperature respectively. As we age cognitive function may naturally decline. However neurological disorders are becoming more and more prevalent. When it comes to brain health, prevention of disease is key. My goal is to share with you how simple lifestyle changes can be incorporated to improve your brain health and ultimately the quality of life which is why I invite you to attend my next webinar, Brain Health on Tuesday, April 27th at 7:00 pm MDT.

The Truth About Inflammation
How much do you know about inflammation? In many cases, you can’t see it or feel it, but inflammation may slowly be damaging your body. Inflammation plays an essential role in our health, but too much of a good thing can wreak havoc on the body. Millions of Canadians have an autoimmune condition, and millions more are somewhere on the autoimmune-inflammation spectrum. One in two men and one in three women will get cancer, and every 34 seconds, someone has a heart attack. All of these conditions have one thing in common: inflammation.
The Case Against Sugar
Sugar has found its way into the foods we eat every day, but it is not always obvious. Products with added sugars are being advertised as “healthy.” Ingredient labels feature numerous names for sugar that most people would not recognize. Overall, sifting through the do’s and don’t’s of sugar in the food industry has become a very confusing and difficult task. As sugar consumption increases, so does disease risk. Due to the vast consequences sugar has on our bodies, this sweets-driven behavior is now a public health issue. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, as of October 2017, the United States has the highest rate of obesity ever calculated. This includes almost 40% of adults and 19% of children and adolescents! Cardiovascular disease remains the number one leading cause of death, accounting for one of every three deaths in the United States. 9.4% of the entire United States population has diabetes while a whopping 33.9% has prediabetes (and climbing)! My goal is to prevent you from becoming a scary statistic which is why I invite you to view this webinar to learn how to recognize different kinds of sugar, how they affect your body, and why this has become such a public health issue. Let’s get clear on the dangers of sugar and how we can best address this epidemic!
