We Can’t Let Fear Win

2020-08-18T21:38:28-04:00

Here’s an interesting fact for you. Did you know that multiple studies show gastrointestinal (GI) issues are one of the hallmarks of autism? In 2012, researchers at the National Institute of Health noted that 92% of children with autism show GI distress.  The CDC estimates that children with autism are 3.5 times more likely to suffer chronic constipation or diarrhea. It’s been proposed that the link is due to pathogenic gut bacteria. These tend to overgrow (and overpower) the good gut bacteria. In one study, UWO researcher Dr.MacFabe was able to produce autism-like symptoms in rats by injecting them with a fatty acid produced [...]

Top 4 Biggest Pain Myths

2020-06-17T15:01:01-04:00

Today I’m laying down a trail of bread crumbs that, if you follow it, might just lead you (or anyone you care about) to be pain-free, or far closer to it. So without further suspense, here are my Top 4 Biggest Pain MYTHS: “It’s better just to lie in bed.” It’s a common misbelief that the answer to pain is simply to rest it.  This one’s been debunked for a while actually - research shows that most painful conditions need some sort of movement in order to heal.  Movement helps blood flow, preserves muscle strength, and prevents fear that inhibits recovery. What type [...]

Headaches: Common But Not Normal

2020-06-02T14:21:29-04:00

With the weather getting warmer (thank you!), migraine sufferers especially might notice an uptick in the frequency of their migraines. But headaches affect almost everyone at some point.  Rare for some, constant for others. Those of you who’ve had tremendous relief and remission from headaches can attest to the suffering you used to have. Let’s take a brief look at a few reasons for this. Tension headaches: They're by far the most common type of headache, and they’re often connected with muscle tension in the neck.  Sedentary living, excess sitting, and more time spent hunched over a computer or phone are all possible [...]

Simple Tip To Avoid The “Quarantine 15” (And Lower Anxiety)

2020-05-05T14:04:28-04:00

Ever heard of “the freshman 15”? It’s an expression about how students typically gain weight in their first year of University. Well, the 2020 equivalent is “the quarantine15”. With gyms shuttered, home baking on the rise, and most of us reaching for a bit of comfort food during these stressful times, fifteen pounds of weight gain in a few months isn’t that far-fetched! Listen, we all know we’re better off to eat less and to eat healthy.  And there’s no shortage of advice circulating right now for how to do just that.  But with everything going on, I think you could be forgiven [...]

How To Prevent Neck Or Back Pain From A Poor Home Work Setup

2020-04-28T14:00:32-04:00

Several of my patients/subscribers have replied in recent weeks with familiar complaints like: *Migraines that prevent sleep (Likely sourced from neck and shoulder tension from the home work environment.) *Upper back tension or distress from a coffee table “desk” – (KJ, this one’s for you!) *Hip pain from sitting more and moving less (6’ tall Ed told me he was spending lots of desk time, mixed with playtime with his 18-ish month old on the floor, with only weekend walk times – ouch) Well, the people have spoken. :-) If you’re one of many who have been forced to adapt to [...]

The Truth About New Year’s Resolutions

2020-01-08T13:10:08-05:00

Do you think using a different word for something can create a different outcome? For example, we hear so much about resolutions this time of year.  But we also know that, statistically, most New Year’s resolutions fail.  I believe one reason they fail is because they’re about changing things in ourselves, our lives, or our behaviour that we don’t like. There can be a lot of built-up negative emotion around something like that. Whereas feeling grateful for what we currently have (our starting point) seems to me like a much better place from which to ask for improvement. That’s why, personally, [...]
