Mind, Body & Soul – 3 Wellness Options in Barrie

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.

Hit up their website to learn more.

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

DID YOU EAT YOUR VEGGIES??

DID YOU EAT YOUR VEGGIES??

Are you one of those people that would rather follow a penguin onto an ice flow than eat your veggies?  There’s help for that!

This week we “Uncovered” a local business that offers a simple way to bridge the gap between how many servings of fruit and vegetables we actually eat and what we should be eating.  Check out this “Uncovered” website.

THE #1 RECOMMENDED DIETARY SUPPLEMENT

The business is Juice Plus and the representative is Veronika Kovecses. Veronika became a firm believer in her product line when her daughter suffered a severe reaction to anesthesia, 6 years ago, with possible “failure to thrive”.  Her daughter’s specialists at Sick Kids Hospital were struggling with the case and asked that Veronika include Juice Plus in her daily nutritional intake.  There was a measurable difference!  In fact, all Children’s hospitals across North America now recommend Juice Plus products to the parents of their young patients, making it the   #1 recommended dietary supplement.

To date there are over 36 medical studies showing an increase in healthy gums, heart health, cardio vascular wellness, immune system, DNA, reducing oxidative stress, healthy skin, and systematic inflammation just to name a few.  Most of us are aware though, that the best way to reduce the possibility of disease is to eat healthy.   There are many more benefits of absorbing the nutrients from fruit and veggies for sure, and they’re all important!

Juice Plus puts their emphasis on whole food, plant based nutrition. They work with mid-sized farms that carefully grow crops as naturally as possible.  This allows products with a much wider variety of vitamins, antioxidants and phytonutrients.  Check out Veronika’s website to see the array of products to choose from for each different lifestyle!

JOIN THE JUICE PLUS FAMILY

A great idea is to join the Juice Plus family. If you don’t want to sell the products, the small administration cost of joining is well worth the savings in product costs for your own purchases.

If direct sales are something you’ve considered – this may be a healthy fit for you in a number of ways.  It’s a 100% virtual relationship based business – all for a $50 start up fee.

Think about increasing your daily intake of fruit and vegetable and think about how easily Juice Plus can help you to do that.  Then call Veronika at (705) 305-6369.  You’ll learn some interesting facts!!

Whatever your choice, just remember…

                                                                    ”Take care of your body.  It’s the only place you have to live.”

HERE WE GROW AGAIN!

HERE WE GROW AGAIN!

Something that I find truly wonderful is that we are finally de-stigmatizing mental health.  Mainstream Therapy is growing again to fill voids in the healthcare system.  Angel Powers, owner of Mainstream Therapy would like to introduce her team to us.

Angel’s team takes a creative and critical thinking perspective while assisting you in getting the most out of life.  What I really love when speaking to Angel is her ability to think outside the box. Mainstream Therapy is always looking for new ways to integrate healing and growth.  Angel herself would like everyone to know that they welcome partnerships with people who have ideas to help people grow.  Whether you’d like to book a consultation, or are interested in a partnership, call 705 717 2107

The team has been hard at work setting up group platforms for “Family Connectivity Workshops”.  Her team has been trained in modern up to date therapies; however they all use their ability to read people very well.  If you’re not comfortable talking to your therapist remotely (due to COVID) or face to face in an office – strap a pair of snowshoes on – your therapist will join you!

By blending the traditional and spiritual models of therapy, Angel and her team have created a perfect way to meet the needs of anyone seeking healing and change.

INTRODUCING ANGEL

Angel Powers is a Registered social service worker/intuitive coach and Reiki master who is known for her use of both traditional and non-traditional methods.  She offers individual counselling, child and youth counselling as well as mindfulness meditation.  In Angel’s words, “Your journey is your journey.  I’m a neutral party and active participant.  Together we will set goals and achieve them…I will help you get the most out of the life you want.”

INTRODUCING COURTNEY

Courtney Burden has both a Master’s degree and her social service worker designation.  Courtney’s passion shines through when working with couples and families in particular.  Well trained in the “Gottman Method” Courtney will help you to find the most positive relationship possible with your partner.  In Courtney’s words, “I integrate my experiences with substance abuse, family violence and loss into helping my clients find success through troubled times.  I am a strong advocate for normalizing therapy and mental health care.”

INTRODUCING LAURA

Laura Kyrkos graduated as a social service worker with honors.  Her true passion lies with assisting children and youth to navigate through our education system successfully while taking control of their mental well-being.  She has worked extensively supporting and transitioning children and youth who have been placed into community supported homes through the CAS.  In Laura’s words, “It’s time for a person-centered approach to healing; feeling better in a comfortable and flexible atmosphere that is specific to your needs.  We can work on exploring your thoughts, feelings and coping strategies to face life’s challenges with ease.”

INTRODUCING JENNY

And Finally…Our Newest Member – Jenny Wilson-Munn

Jenny is here to welcome you to a fresh start on a healing journey at Mainstream Therapy.  Before joining Mainstream Therapy, Jenny worked as an Educational Assistant with the County of Simcoe.  Those 18 years allowed her to interact with many children and young adults with developmental disabilities.  Her long-term experience in the service industry has taught her to meet and exceed each client’s needs within various settings.  On a personal level, Jenny believes in the power of positivity.  Her career experiences, training qualifications and wisdom gained through life has given her the ability to empower the core of our culture.  Jenny is a strong advocate for mindfulness practice and personal growth.  She looks forward to not only guiding you on your first steps through healing at Mainstream Therapy but to develop a relationship with you.  After all, we are people helping people.

REMEMBER...

If you have been struggling – with anything – anxiety, depression, guilt, motivation or feeling stuck, book a 30 minute complimentary telephone consultation.  There really is someone to talk to.
