Eating Clean and Saving Green: How to Save on Organic Produce Using the Dirty Dozen, Clean Fifteen Guide
Eating lots of fruits and vegetables is super important for staying healthy but like many people, you might be worried about the health risks from pesticides. Pesticides are a big problem with non-organic food and that can be really bad news from a health perspective. High exposure to pesticides and other toxins from our food has been linked to fertility problems and even cancer. In the 2019 Dirty Dozen report from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), there was evidence of pesticides or...
The renowned Greek philosopher, Hippocrates, is well known for his belief that “all disease begins in the gut”. And we now know that a leaky gut is probably involved in many autoimmune conditions. This is why functional medicine has such a strong focus on healing the gut as one of the steps for treating autoimmune disease. [bctt tweet="Ideally, you want to have a balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut but too often, it’s the bad bacteria that is more prolific. This imbalance can be a...
Psoriasis is one example of an autoimmune condition that mostly affects the skin (although it can sometimes affect the joints too). Dry skin can also be a symptom of other autoimmune conditions. Here’s how to know if your dry skin could be one of the signs of an...
You can always tell when you’re stressed, right? Not necessarily! Chronic stress can bring about a wide range of symptoms and you won’t always link them to stress. This can mean that you ignore some key signs that stress is building up and carry on your day-to-day life without taking any steps to address the situation. [bctt tweet="How can you tell if you’re too stressed? Here are some signs that stress may be getting the better of you and what you can do to change things up."...
Not sure exactly how to know if you might be going through the menopause? You may start to notice changes in your health and well-being as you enter your forties and fifties but these aren’t always recognized as being linked to menopause. Changing levels of estrogen, testosterone and other hormones can encourage a range of symptoms. Some of these are classic menopause symptoms but others can be more surprising. If you have any of these symptoms and you’re in the ballpark age for menopause,...
Iced tea, iced coffee, boba tea, and green smoothies—what’s next? Kombucha. Kombucha is an ancient Chinese drink that was known as the “immortal health elixir.” It has been used for fighting degenerative diseases and illnesses for over 2000 years, but is only now beginning to grow in popularity. Kombucha is a type of sweet tea made from a fermented yeast called SCOBY, or a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. SCOBY is sometimes referred to as “the mother and the mushroom” due to its...
Stress – the thing that creeps in quick when you least expect it. When we are stressed, it’s quite easy to develop negative thinking patterns because we become frustrated by our challenges and frequent feelings of being overwhelmed. This negative outlook then makes it even harder for us to manage those challenges and move forward and break through the stress cycle. [bctt tweet="Practicing positive thinking helps to focus on our strengths and accomplishments, which increases happiness and...
Do you eat fermented foods regularly? If not, you’re missing an easy way to make your gut healthier. And a healthier gut means a happier and more vibrant you! If your gut isn’t right, you can eat super healthy and still struggle with feeling flat and not quite yourself. Does this sound familiar? Because fermented foods are super important for healing the gut and balancing out the countless good and bad bacteria that live there, they could be your secret weapon for...
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You’re playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make...
As a little girl, I was indoctrinated into Christianity but quickly learned many religions have parallel stories, traditions, and talk in parables for the student to read between the lines, dig deeper, and discover what it means for themselves. Since moving into Spirituality, and away from Christianity, I overstand that we, as Infinite, Divine, Beings have many bodies, not just this physical body. We are granted a Physical Body, Mental Body, Emotional Body, and Spritiual Body. Our Physical...

Sarah B., 1-on-1 Client Program
My main goal when I began working with Jamie was to work through my fatigue and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis symptoms. I wasn’t finding any hope with doctors and I needed help navigating through other options. What helped me the most was learning how to be more proactive in working with my doctor by taking control of my care, getting proper lab tests, being prepared with questions to ask my doctor and keeping all of my records.
