Treat Yo Self!

“Treat Yo Self!” I see this slogan on everything from ice cream shop A-frames to memes on Facebook where people are gobbling up slabs of chocolate cake or guzzling back entire bottles of wine. And I GET it. I mean, I used to BE one of those people telling people, “C’mon…just one won’t hurt” or…

Mothering. And Gratitude.

Roger and I want to simply say, “thank you”, for the gift that is The Healthy Brain and Body Show. We birthed this baby back in 2017 and we couldn’t have imagined all it would become until it hit toddlerhood. This year was the most INCREDIBLE year yet, and I cannot begin to count the number of deeply…

Our Baby Turns 3!

I love children. I find them funny and adorable and interesting and wise. They have a way of always being in the present moment that inspires me, and I genuinely enjoy the company of children. As a teen, I was the neighbourhood babysitter that every family wanted to hire. I made a lot of money…

The REAL 5 Alive!

As a kid, my mom rarely allowed us to have pop. When we did, it was a special treat. Once in a while, usually when my parents entertained, my mom would buy some “5 Alive” as a treat for the kids. I LOVED the citrusy-sweet-bubbly combo and now that I’m an adult, I still like…

Sobriety Starts HERE is HERE!

One year ago now, Roger and I launched our video podcast called Sobriety Starts HERE. We created it for those who are seeking and searching; perhaps googling late at night and with shaky hands, “How do I stop drinking?” or “How do I know if I’m an alcoholic?” We wanted a place for the sober-curious…

The TRUTH About The Sun, Tanning and Skin Cancer.

A few weeks ago, I shared about my experience with skin cancer. I had a mole (and the “margins”) on my back removed over a decade ago that contained pre-melanoma cells. Then, in January, I had two basal cell carcinomas removed from below my right eye. The surgery should have been “no big deal”. But…

Where is “HEALTH” On YOUR List?

I interviewed one of my favourite naturopathic doctors on episode 11 of my talk show, and she shared something that has really stuck with me. Dr. Sarah Vadeboncoeur shared that whenever a new client comes in to see her, she asks them where “health” falls on their list or priorities. Like, “How important is your…
