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 […]

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 […]

Home Grown Sprouting!

I have noticed that sprouts aren’t as easy to find in the supermarket’s produce isle these days, but that doesn’t mean that I, nor you should go without!

I’ve recently taken to home sprouting, it’s a fun and easy way to get some greens in your diet the whole year round, and it can be super cheap too!

All you need is a 16 or 32 ounce wide mouth mason jar, a ring lid and a wire […]

St.Patrick’s Day Green Pasta!

Happy St.Patrick’s Day!

In spirit of this ‘green’ themed day, I wanted to share a super creamy and delicious green pasta. It’s dairy-free, heart healthy and immune boosting! Not to mention, super easy to whip up. Boil up your gluten free spaghetti noodles, spiralize a zucchini (zoodles) for a lower carb option, or spaghetti squash and whip up this sauce to enjoy with the noodles. This recipe is adapted from Angela Liddon’s cookbook, Oh She Glows.

Measuring Our Body’s Ability to Detoxify

A recent report from the Institute of Functional Medicine, estimates that 4 billion pounds of chemical compounds and pollutants from plastics, pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, medications, and other sources are released into the environment each year.  Eventually, these toxins find their way into our air, soil, food, water supplies, and into our bodies. In the past 10 years of practice, I have observed how this increased toxic load in our […]
