Oral Allergy Syndrome: A common but poorly understood type of “food allergy”

2021-03-15T19:14:58+00:00By |Dr Vanessa, Health, Health Tips|

That new or worsening allergic tickle or itch in your mouth after eating things like avocado, apple, Indian food, or even drinking high-quality nut milk is definitely not in your imagination. You may have started avoiding these foods and others entirely to avoid the uncomfortable symptoms and distress that it could spread further.     Oral Allergy [...]

2021-03-13T19:04:57+00:00By |Wellness|

What a year!  As mid-March draws near, we are approaching the one-year Anniversary of the clinic closure.  For 3 months, Brio temporarily closed its doors to the public in effort to help flatten the curve.  We were permitted to re-open in June, with strict safety measures in place.  All of which are religiously in-tact since [...]

Hello Everyone!   As you know, last year March 17, 2020 Brio temporarily closed its doors in efforts to do our part to help flatten the curve.

2020-03-15T19:45:22+00:00By |Events, Health, Health Tips|

With growing anxiety and scarcity worldwide, facts are often jumbled with fiction.  There’s a tendency toward empty talk (‘hot air’) or worse, fear mongering, when we just need reliable facts to stay informed and make responsible decisions:  COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), like MERS-CoV (2012) and SARS-CoV (2002) Estimated global mortality rate is [...]

What are the Symptoms of a Heart-Mind Imbalance?

2020-02-15T06:37:03+00:00By |Health, Health Tips|

As February is Heart Health Month, we thought it would be appropriate to go beyond focusing only on the physical heart, and to also include the “heart-mind” connection.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the heart system refers to both the physiological pump that moves blood around our body and also the mental/emotional centre.  This concept [...]

An imbalance of the progesterone to estrogen ratio, specifically the condition of Estrogen Dominance (or relative Progesterone Deficiency), is at the [...]
