Brio Heritage Series: Dr. Carin

I’ve been told that I seem like a contradiction: I’m passionate about health and nutrition yet I’m the resident chocolate monster, happy to celebrate an occasion with a decadent dessert. I don’t shy away from manually-intensive projects but I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been on a treadmill. To me, health is much more than the sum of conventionally-accepted ‘healthy activities’; connecting with people over delicious foods, taking time to […]

Linda celebrates 20 years of her career!

It’s kind of hard to fathom, really, the distance of time, the increments of experiences which measure out the length of twenty years.

I was pondering that when it was my time to collect my “20 year pin” with a few other colleagues at this years’ Massage Therapist Association of B.C’s Annual General Meeting back in April.

Existential angst aside, (jk!) I have to admit I feel like I have chosen a career path that has helped […]

Brio Heritage Series: Dr. Neetu

The Doctor lies Within: A conversation with my dad, Paramjit Dhiman

I have studied health and healing for what seems like my entire life.  Growing up in our household, my family and my grandparents always discussed health, food, the season, herbs, roots, spices, and karma or energy: what you put out into the world will come back to you in the form of health and abundance. Growing up with chronic illness and immune system dysregulation, this set […]

Insomnia: A Combination Therapy to Restore a Good Night’s Sleep

Insomnia is becoming increasingly common as our modern world exposes us to more stress, more stimulants, more toxic load and more lights!
In a previous blog, Dr. Lee shared an eye-opening video about the effects of lights on our circadian rhythms and this one will explain how we have combined Acupuncture and I.V. Nutrient Therapy to help relax the body and improve the overall quality of sleep.
For years, the Naturopathic Doctors at Brio have used Acupuncture […]

April 2018 – exactly 1 year from now will mark the 10 year anniversary of Brio Integrative Health Centre!!

Peanut Butter Cups

Happy Easter! In lieu of the usual corn-syrup laden sugary treats that are available at this time of the year, we’ve adapted this recipe from Detoxinista. This is a much healthier take on the store bought peanut butter cups, and they contain lots of antioxidants from the cacao powder. If you don’t have cacao powder, you can use cocoa powder but you will have to use more maple syrup.

Enjoy!

Spring Cleaning: Liver Detox

With the increasing sunlight and (slightly) warmer temperatures of spring you may have noticed that your sleep, energy and even cravings have changed. In the spring season, more Qi or energy, floods through our liver system, naturally changing body functions.
In Chinese medicine, wood represents liver function: “Wood is forceful and determined as the wind, as supple as a spreading aspen stretching into a bright, cloudless sky.”
Wood, or the liver system, has the power to instigate […]
