Why Your Doctor Can't Tell You How Diet Affects Your Autoimmune Disease

So, you’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and your doctor says you’re doomed to live with it, suck it up buttercup. What do you do? You click the “Contact” link up there in the right hand corner of the screen, you set up an appointment with me for a no charge one hour health consultation, and we will talk about what you need to get you through this maze of conflicting information, and how my programme can support you with that.

What are Your Goals?

Part of my job as a Health Coach is to keep my clients accountable to themselves so they can achieve their goals. I make my clients actually sign a commitment to theirself along with their contract with me. Whether their goal is to lose 20 pounds to fit into a fancy dress or suit for someone's wedding, or to get more active, or learn how to be more healthy overall. I can help them learn how they can reach those goals, and how to sustain them long term. Read More

Healthy Eating on a Budget

Food can be a slow working poison, or it can be what heals you. You either pay for good food now, or you pay for costly healthcare in the future, when you can no longer take care of yourself, and you're in a nursing home for the last few years of your life, lying in bed, unable to do much of anything. How do you want your last few years to look? Healthy and vibrant, until you peacefully die in your sleep at age 112, or painful, with 18 different medications with every meal, and no energy, no memory of your family, living in a nursing home that costs $4000+ per month?

Such a Whirlwind!

By Thursday panic was setting in...holy crap I don't have a job! What will I do for money? How will I pay my rent, how will I eat, will I qualify for EI, and yadda yadda yadda....but I went to the mall to get some US cash at the currency exchange, and found some fabulous new IIN red clothes for my weekend in New York City, and I felt better. Nothing like a good session of retail therapy eh? And then of course the panic creeps back in...should I have just spent all that money, bought those new clothes and 2 new pairs of shoes? Should I really go on this trip to New York...blah blah blah... Read More

I Got Glutened!

I was "glutened" yesterday. I had some paleo porridge for breakfast with some coconut flour bought at the Bulk Barn, and pretty much immediately afterward felt the pain starting. I still had to go to work though. The pain got progressively worse through the day, and I still had to go grocery shopping! I stopped at the health food store and got some magnesium citrate powder to help with the pain and constipation that always comes with a glutening. Read More

I Just Noticed Something!

I was sitting here at my desk listening in on a webinar, and I got an itch on my head. So I reached up to scratch it. And there were no lumps, or crusty flakes, or scales or anything! I even got up to check my entire head in the mirror! For the first time in my entire life (no kidding!) I Have No Psoriasis Anywhere On My Body! None! Can you even imagine that? I have had psoriasis since I was BORN! I am 47 years old, and I now have NO Psoriasis scales anywhere! Read More

What Will 2015 Bring?

I had decided ahead of time that it would be a short fast day, because there really isn't any food there at the ACC that I can eat, and they do not allow you to bring in your own food or drink. Not even water, so I had to buy a 1/2 litre bottle of water for $5.50! Can you imagine? Utterly ridiculous prices! This is generally why I don't go out to sporting events, one, the ticket prices, two, the lack of affordable food and drink once I get there. But I won these tickets (good thing too, the price on them was $98 each!) and it was a great way to spend the day with my nephew. I'm happy that we went. Read More

Confessions of an Autoimmune Collector

About 3 or 4 years or so ago, I was having a heckuva time with extreme exhaustion, chronic vertigo, scatter brain (one step up [down?] from the usual autoimmune brain fog), systemic inflammation and pain, and just general overall bad health that the doctors could find no reason for at all. I lost my job because of it. Of course given that I already had 3 diagnosed autoimmune diseases I kept telling them it was probably another one. Or maybe even two or more! They ran tests, and they kept telling me results were "inconclusive". One rheumatologist said to "come back when you have more or worse symptoms" and a neurologist told me I probably need a psychiatrist, because he couldn't find anything wrong with me. Read More

Shopping Tips

Navigating grocery stores shouldn't be a terrifying ordeal, but for those of us with food allergies or intolerances, it can be! Especially with all of the confusing dietary recommendations bombarding us every day! Read More

Let's do Some Science!

A study at Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Australia has determined that oats can be just as toxic to at least 8% of people with celiac disease as any of the offensive gluten containing grains. Read More
