Reset Your Health This September
For many of us, there’s something about the cooler days of fall and a well-engrained back to school mentality that makes the start of September feel like a time of change and new beginnings.
To help you reset your health after months of summer bliss, our team has put together a few tips.
Make Yourself A Priority – Kandiss Fernando, RTCMP
While we all have people who depend on us for support, it’s important to take time this September to focus on ourselves. In Chinese Traditional Medicine, how we feel over time plays a major role in our health. By knowing and valuing our wants and needs, and actively pursuing the vision we have for ourselves, we are able to give and do for others from a place of abundance and joy. Whether your goal is to sleep more, reduce your cholesterol levels, or be more patient with others, making yourself a priority will help you reset your health this fall. By building habits of self-attunement now you will be better able to guide yourself forward and help others in the weeks, months and years ahead.

Have One Low-Carb Meal a Day: Dr. Tamarah Chaddah, Naturopath
For some, new years resolutions begin in January, but for me, I always set one health goal for myself at this time of year. Setting small, manageable goals can lead to big rewards in the end. This September, I challenge you to incorporate one low-carb meal into your day. Carbohydrates, good or bad, are broken down to sugar in the body. Unfortunately, when we have an abundance of sugar in the diet, any excessive amount will get stored as fat. By cutting carbohydrates down in one of your meals, you will automatically reduce your sugar intake, which will help you to burn more fat and balance blood sugar levels. Practically speaking, having one low-carb meal means cutting out bread, pasta, grains, rice, potatoes, cookies, and sugary drinks. Instead, go for eggs and veggies in the morning or try having a green salad with chicken or salmon for lunch. At dinner time, skip the rice or potatoes and replace it with an extra vegetable or salad instead. Once you get into the habit, you will feel less bloated, and I promise your waistline will thank you!
