Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system.

Busy, active lives take their toll on our bodies. We put tremendous physical demands on ourselves, creating structural imbalances (called subluxations). An unbalanced body can’t function at its full potential; chiropractic treatment can get things back into balance for optimized wellness.

Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body is only well when the nervous system is functioning at 100%. When your spine is misaligned, it puts pressure on your nerves, causing vertebral subluxations that lead to muscle tension, joint restriction, back pain, arthritic changes and nerve impingement, all of which can exist with or without physical symptoms.

Doctors of chiropractic restore motion and alignment to these areas with gentle and effective adjustments, enabling the body to perform at optimal levels without injury.

Chiropractic doesn’t look at symptoms or injuries in isolation. It’s a holistic practice that focuses on the whole person, considering the relationship of all the parts of your body to each other. It ‘s an approach that isn’t about treating a single part of your body; it stresses the importance of a comprehensive prevention strategy that incorporates nutrition, exercise and stress reduction.

Osteopathy is a natural medicine that uses palpation to restore function by treating the causes of pain and imbalance. Osteopathic manual practitioners identify, assess, and treat the body’s structures and rhythms using a gentle, hands-on approach.

Osteopathic manual practitioners gently yet intentionally touch the tissues or systems under examination. They palpate to get sensory information through touch receptors in the fingertips and palms, and through the proprioceptors (motion and position sensors) deep in the joints of the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders.

The ability to detect minute modifications in the tissues allows osteopathic manual practitioners to prioritize a patient's course of treatment. They look for a variety of issues including congestion, dehydration, scarring, stiffness, density, loss of resilience, and motility, and also assess position, mobility and vitality to determine which areas need immediate attention.

Ear Candling is a natural, non-intrusive procedure that may alleviate the painful effects of chronic headaches or sinus conditions, ear infections, allergies or vertigo, as well as minor hearing loss due to excessive earwax build up.

For thousands of years, a form of hygiene known as Thermal Auricular Candling was used as a way of naturally cleansing the inside of the ears and head. The first known art of ear candling was in ancient Egypt. Hollow reeds harvested from damp areas were used as the candles. Native American cultures, such as the Aztec and Mayan civilizations used candling in healing and purification before initiation rites.

The ear candling process is also believed to detoxify the lymphatic system and clear the sinuses, which can also improve the clarity of hearing, sight, smell and taste. More subtle changes may occur on an energy level resulting in greater emotional stability and an overall sense of well-being.

Ear wax is continuously produced by the body. It is a protection against foreign material, dust, noise and pollution. It also acts like a shock absorber for sound waves. Excess wax build up is problematic. Auricular Candling is one way to relieve pain and discomfort. The warmth and smoke assist the natural process to excrete impacted or infected earwax.

Ear Candling may be helpful with:

Excessive or compacted wax in the ears
Headaches/migraine
Relaxing and calming effect in cases of anxiety and stress
Ear, nose and throat disorders
Stimulation of lymphatic system and metabolism
Ear Candling does not take the place of conventional medicine. Always consult a GP for an acute or infectious condition, and problems of urgent concern.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GO FOR A TREATMENT?

The session will begin with a consultation to ensure the treatment is appropriate. Lying on your side, the candle will be lit and placed gently but firmly in the ear creating a seal and is held in position throughout the treatment. You may experience a fire crackling sound as the candle burns and possibly some popping of the ear. You will also feel a gentle massaging sensation to the ear drum and some heat as the candle burns lower. When the candle has burned it is carefully removed from the ear and extinguished. The entire process is then repeated for the other ear.

Sometimes the results are immediate and other times manifest during the days after candling.

Ear candling is not a cure-all, but is an ancient holistic process that has proven itself.

For maintenance, ear candling is received at the change in the seasons, four times annually. During allergy, cold and flu season, weekly ear candling may be helpful.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Ear candles should not be used if you have a perforated eardrum, recent ear or sinus surgery, tubes in the ear, bleeding or draining of fluids from the ear.


Medical Cannabis

Medical cannabis is not a cure for any disease but rather a medicine used to relieve the symptoms caused by a variety of different diseases and conditions.

Medical cannabis is not a cure for any disease but rather a medicine used to relieve the symptoms caused by a variety of different diseases and conditions. Sometimes conventional medications are not enough or patients want to eliminate or reduce their intake of strong painkillers, like opioids, which come with a significant risk of side effects and dependency, opting for more natural remedies. In those instances medical cannabis is a viable option. Only Health Canada Licensed Producers (LP) can legally supply medical cannabis to patients, ensuring that extensive quality, safety and security requirements are being met. Further, every LP produces different strains of cannabis that profile to specific medical conditions.

All human beings have an endocannabinoid system. This system is involved in many processes in your body, including appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. Your endocannabinoid system naturally produces chemicals similar to those found in cannabis. These chemicals work to pass messages between the brain and different parts of the body through your neurons and receptors. Some medical ailments alter how the endocannabinoid system functions, which can lead to many of the symptoms that patients experience as part of their condition. The cannabinoids introduced with medical cannabis help to treat those symptoms by supplementing the endocannabinoids normally produced in your body, and subsidizing the system as a whole.

Medical cannabis is used to relieve the symptoms caused by a variety of different diseases and conditions, such as:

ADD/ADHD
Alzheimer’s Disease
Anxiety
Arthritis
Auto Accident(s)
Back & Neck Problems
Brain Injury
Cancer
Chronic Nausea
Chronic Pain
Colitis
Crohn’s Disease
Depression
Eating Disorders
Epilepsy
Fibromyalgia
Gastrointestinal Disorders
Hepatitis C
HIV/AIDS
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Kidney Failure/Dialysis
Migraines
Multiple Sclerosis
Muscle Spasms
Muscular Dystrophy
Parkinson’s Disease
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Severe Arthritis
Sexual Dysfunction
Sleep Disorders
Spinal Cord Injury/Disease

When prescribed correctly by knowledgeable physicians and nurse practitioners, medical cannabis can be an integrated part of a patient’s recovery plan, symptom management and contribute to improving their overall quality of life.

There are two main product types available – dried cannabis and edible cannabis oils. The modes of delivery include lung inhalation and gut ingestion.

Cannabis oil products are ingested so there is no need to inhale the medication in the form of smoke or vapor. Cannabis oils can be ingested, or droplets can be applied under the tongue and absorbed through the mouth.

Vaporizing is a common smokeless alternative to consuming or smoking marijuana that allows you to inhale many active cannabinoids, while avoiding the harmful elements that may be inhaled when smoked.
