Socks And Soles: The New Neurotech

The likelihood is you’ve never thought too much about the cost of walking.

Your pads absorb alot of walking, running, dancing, jumping with/chasing the little ones over the course of a day or a week. Multiply that by years and you start to grasp how dependent we are on our lower appendages.

Love2YourFeet knows all about the toll taken by your feet. The Barrie based provider offers Drug-Free Wearable Neurological products from VoxxLife to anyone interested in creating a better Quality of Life through Health and Wellness. Among other benefits, the neurotech helps to improve mobility, lower pain and optimize for sports performance.

Pure Vibes by Christina

Think all water is the same? Think again!

Pure Vibes by Christina provides (among other wellness options) water based filtration and treatments that boost your energy and heal your body.

Among their living water options are ionized alkaline, which is an excellent source of healthful hydration. This makes water easier to drink, and you avoid that feeling of being “bloated” which is common with other types of water.

Beyond water, they offer botanical beauty workshops and health and wellness seminars.

Energizing people though these approaches is at the core of Pure Vibe’s wellness philosophy.

What’s your energy like? Check it!⁠ ⁠ I’ve been described as an energetic person, even at my sickest. All that envelopes my wellness philosophy is tied to energy. Even my personality-type profile is “ENERGIZER.” Talk about being defined by something! ⁠ ⁠ When I started to drink my amazing water back in 2018, my energy shifted so much that clients were approaching me and asking me what I’m doing differently. My chiropractor, integrated medical team, and others couldn’t believe the shift. Energy is a marker you just cannot hide.⁠ ⁠ So, grab some “living water,” learn about how hydrogen is essential to fuel us and heal us, how water can be measured in millivolts, and how you can plug into some additional energy.⁠ ⁠ Change always starts with education and information. Take in the research, learn, then APPLY it to gain wisdom. Until you put into application what you learn, you remain stagnant.⁠ ⁠ What have you learned lately to improve ENERGY? Share your comments below.⁠

Do you suffer from #Cravings ? . . The upside of craving is that it is a conditioned response that you can unlearn . . Here are a few of my top tips to reduce cravings : . . 💫 Start identifying why that craving is coming on- are you ACTUALLY hungry? Are you bored? Are you feeling another emotion ? . . 💫 Use the 5 second rule to stop thinking about a craving (ie. when you are craving sweet or salty, count backwards from 5 , and re evaluate that craving afterwards) . . 💫 #MOVE – march in place, do some squats, or walk up the stairs . . 💫 Get a herbal tea that you love (or have some warm water with lemon) . . 💫 Make sure that your blood sugar levels are balanced (your body often craves sugar when it is crashing ) . . 💫 Work with a naturopathic doctor to ensure your #stress levels are managed, rule out any deficiencies & ensure that you are getting a proper #sleep. . . . #naturopathicdoctor #naturopathicmedicine #ndbarrie #naturopath #wellness #barrienaturopath #wellwomentribe #sugarcravings #womenshealth #healthyhormones #hormonebalance #balanceyourhormones #exercise #moveyourbody #sugar #sugarcravings

When Cancer is a lemon

FCancer

“When life gives you lemons, make….?”  Make love?  Make war?  Scream? Cry?
Yes.  Yes, to all.

  When life gives you lemons there is one thing that we know, it becomes a time of confusion and pain.  Oh yes, we all learned in our sociology courses about Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and know that a chain of events naturally follows any lemon that you may receive in your life.  A common lemon that has touched many is the big one – cancer. 

Now this post isn’t an inefficient attempt to counsel you and tell you what to expect.  In fact, this is a very difficult topic to put to paper. The truth is, cancer affects everyone in varying degrees. 

Every situation is different and we understand that.  If you are reading this post and are going through this diagnosis, let us just say one word – RESPECT.

WE CAN HELP

Here’s what Barrie Uncovered wants to do for you – we want to guide you to certain services and solutions that are available right here in Barrie.  You have options, my friend.  We want you to know that what you may be thinking is a HUGE problem right now, may have a simple solution – in Barrie.  Let us walk you through them:

HAIR

f*ck cancer

Many treatments surrounding cancer lead to hair loss.  Wig Boutique Barrie has a variety of styles and options for you to take a look at. When you book an appointment with them, they will develop a special “We Care” plan for you.  Wig Boutique Barrie is a boutique style environment and they want to make sure that you feel comfortable and confident while you are there.  Perhaps you aren’t interested in a wig?  Well, they even have hope caps. You definitely want to check the Boutique out.

BREASTS

So, you are looking at the possibility of a mastectomy?  A double mastectomy? Sheesh, we have no words.  How do you give up what’s yours when you don’t want to?  If there was a way to give them back to you, we’d march for that.  This post is a little like a march for your life.  We are trying to stand with you and guide you a long a little.  (do you feel that?)

f*ck cancer

Let’s talk about boobs.  You need to check out two stores in Barrie.  First one is Brabary. If you were a Victoria Secret shopper and thought that those bras were the shizzle, well then!  You’ve never been to brabary.  Not only do they have a great selection of pretty sexy German bras – they also have breast forms. With one of their Amoena external breast forms you will regain your natural silhouette and feel comfortable while doing it. 

The second store you may want to check out is Bravo Fine Lingerie.  Bravo caries a wide variety of products, clothing and sleepwear.  They also carry the Amoena breast form.  This breast form is a silicone external breast that mimics the natural breast in its shape and weight.  Something a little extra that Bravo Fine Lingerie offers, is that should you want any of the bras in their store and are in need of a breast form, they will sew a pocket into the bra that you choose, no expense to you. 

Okay, there’s one more option that we have for you – tattoos.  Yeah, its also a possibility. 

TATTOOS

f*ck cancer

Recently Barrie Uncovered spoke with Kyle Calvert and Andrew Batten , owners of Hellfire Tattoo Company in Barrie. We asked what sort of options are available for tattoo pieces when it comes to tattooing over scar tissue.  Kyle shared with Barrie Uncovered, “When tattooing scars know that your scar must have healed for at least 3 months but it’s always best to wait as long as possible.”  Barrie Uncovered was assured that there are other options and you can always stop by Hellfire Tattoo to chat. Don’t be afraid by this tough looking group – you can’t see their hearts, but believe me, they are huge.

Every year, Hellfire supports charity with last year being the Mental Health Association. This year it’s the Canadian Cancer Society. Props, Hellfire!

Okay, deep breath.  You got this.  Let us just say one word again – RESPECT.
