Cancer – Step Outside the Box

May 13, 2013 | 2 Comments on Cancer – Step Outside the Box

By Ty Bollinger (5th Ed) Book review of text for the new Certified Holistic Cancer Practitioner (CHCP) Diploma Program at Edison   As practitioners, we are seeing an overwhelming wave of cancer cases coming into our clinics. Every single one of us either knows a friend or a relative affected by cancer or has their own personal experience with it.  Many cancer coaching courses and books on cancer do a great job of educating about all of the conventional treatments. While this information is important to know when working within the current medical paradigm, there is not enough education and understanding about the alternative therapies available. Dr. Philip Binzel, in Alive and Well, states: “In the past fifty years, tremendous ...

Grow Your Own: The Future of Farming

April 14, 2013 | Leave a response

We are currently using 80% of the earth's arable land to grow our food—which amounts to a chunk of land the size of South America. With current farming practices, by 2050 we will need an additional chunk of land, larger than Brazil, to feed the additional 3 billion+ people that will be living on earth by then. What does all this mean? -- That we all, collectively, have a problem. Dr. Dickson Despommier writes about some creative solutions in his book, “The Vertical Farm, Feeding the World in the 21st Century”. We are currently standing on a farming precipice, peering over the edge—wondering what to do. Even here in expansive Canada we're not immune to the problem (especially since much ...

Eat What Makes Sense!

March 6, 2013 | Leave a response

When we first heard about metabolic balance® we thought, “oh here we go, another diet plan to add to the list.” Wrong! metabolic balance® is not a standardized weight loss diet.  The program is a holistic approach to "resetting" your body’s metabolism into a healthy balance and reaching your ideal weight, whether you need to lose weight or gain weight. With a balanced metabolism, each individual is able to select foods containing the nutrients the body needs through inner signals, which in turn, will allow our metabolic pathways to function at an optimal level. Most of us have lost this ability and eat until there is no food left on the plate or eat very minimal amounts. Nutritional balance provides ...

SUGAR FREE is not what the label REALLY means.

October 9, 2012 | Leave a response

We all know the dangers of consuming sugar in high amounts....but companies are getting crafty at hiding the actual sugar and carbohydrate content of their products. For example: Products marketed as "diabetic friendly" or "sugar-free" actually contain substances called sugar alcohols - which are actually neither a sugar nor an alcohol but really just similar in structure chemically to sugars and alcohols! Essentially, any ingredient ending in "ol" such as xylitol, maltitol, sorbitol, glycerol, etc. are sugar alcohols. The catch however, is that each of these are not really natural products and have to go through processing to become a sugar alcohol and secondly, each one has a different Glycemic Index value. The GI Value of specific sugar alcohols: Maltitol ...
