Most Canadians begin life in hospitals and the road continues with annual appointments, vaccinations and medications. When the medical community can’t provide solutions people then tend to seek out alternatives.
There is nothing more important than being healthy. The quality of one’s life is directly related to it. Genetics play a role but life choices are important. I am blessed to be strong inside and out BUT I have spent a lifetime trying to lead a clean life. For me diet and exercise is the key to achieving balance.
I go to the doctor annually but know the value of having a Naturopath. I sought out advice and options pertaining to issues that I needed to change. Water retention, stomach issues and migraines have plagued me. I couldn’t believe that my only options were medications. The knowledge I learned has been life changing. Learning my food sensitivities have led me to the promised land!!
I encourage everyone to see Dr Murphy. Being educated and a different perspective gives us the ability to make informed choices. Being willing and open to try new things brings endless possibilities.
I thought it was time for everyone to learn a little more about this fabulous Naturopath.As a pre-med student she found herself fascinated by Buddhism and Tibetan medicine. Upon graduation she moved to China and studied Herbalism. Returning to Canada, she began the 8 year commitment to becoming a Naturopath. She is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). This intensive program consists of science based courses with diagnosis, written and practical exams. What makes this so much more is the added training in nutrition, acupuncture, TCM, hydrotherapy, massage, and botanical medicine to name a few.A Naturopath is not a replacement for your medical doctor but having one is an opportunity to have a well rounded “health team” at your disposal.After asking Dr. Murphy a slew of questions I learned:
- Most clients range in age from 30 to 60.
- Only about 10% of her clients are vegans or vegetarians.
- Dr. Murphy sees about 70% women in her practice.
The number of children is on the rise. This may be due to the increase in allergies, childhood obesity, and ADD. Dr. Murphy points out that future generations are accumulating more chronic diseases from an earlier age.
The number of people with intolerances are on the rise. Food sensitivities and environmental triggers are becoming normal. People also develop food allergies as they get older. This leads us to the #1 way EVERYONE can improve the quality of their life. By evaluating your diet one can improve their overall health. It is not uncommon to be sensitive to dairy, gluten, soy, nuts, and eggs. It can take up to 3 days to show signs making it harder to detect.
Taking a good hard look at the foods you consume and making positive changes can be a tool in the treatment of diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
You only have one life and the quality of it is within your control. Take the time to have all the facts and options available to you to live the best LIFE inside and out! Love yourself “inside and out”. Take the time to learn more about yourself.
