Bedford Naturopathic Clinic Inc. will be opening September 2016 in the new Santé Centre located in Bedford, Nova Scotia. The clinic will provide a range of naturopathic services including: homeopathy, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, nutritional medicine, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, acupuncture & traditional Chinese medicine. Additional products and services will include IV therapy, injection therapy, lab testing, tinctures and supplement sales from the full dispensary.
September is just around the corner and it is usually a time when we get back into our regular schedule and routines, and this makes it a great time for reflection. I encourage you to take some time to reflect on your everyday rhythm and routines. Are they serving you? Bringing you closer to your goals and what you want your life to look like? If not, make a plan to change. We all have room for improvement! Create a routine that reflects your values and goals, and who you want
to be as a person.
Walking is a great tool in weight management and it can also drastically reduce stress, and improve mood and mental clarity. You’ll get even better results if done outside! How fast should you walk? You don’t have to power walk to see results. There are just as many health benefits to a slow, leisurely walk, so pick what suits you in the moment (1). Walk with a friend or use this as your personal time for reflection.
Even if you are an avid exerciser, you still need to walk, especially if you work at a desk all day! New research suggests that sitting too much is having a dramatic negative impact on our health (2).
You’ve probably heard of 10 000 step a day? Why not get started today!
