We had a great time at the Harvest Festival this weekend! We were able to educate these amazing people, who were hungry for knowledge, about the power of whole foods nutrition and the impact it has on our health! So grateful for Syndi Mullins from Herbal Springs Wellness Center for inviting me to speak and putting on this fun event!
Have you heard the saying that your period is your monthly report card? How did you do this month? We are going to guess that most of us wouldn't have scored an A+ but we definitely deserve a gold star (and maybe some chocolate) for our struggle! 💫 . . A huge percentage of women suffer from some form of PMS. PMS refers to a whole range of premenstrual symptoms including cramping, irritability, sore breasts, bloating, food cravings, low moods, low energy, water retention, and the list honestly goes on and on. . . But, I am going to let you in on some information that seems to have been kept in the dark - our periods are not meant to be accompanied by PSM symptoms, they are meant to come and go easily, and painlessly. I know shock 😨 . . So then, why are so many women suffering from these monthly PMS symptoms? For some, there may be a specific condition, such as endometriosis, which is the cause, but for most, it is an accumulation of lifestyle and dietary factors which are the cause. Stress, lack of sleep, exposure to everyday toxins and chemicals, dietary deficiencies, digestive dysbiosis, excessive alcohol consumption, an inflammatory diet, and more are all contributing to your PSM symptoms. . . The good news is that there are numerous lifestyle and dietary changes you can make to help reduce or even eliminate your PSM symptoms. At Barangaroo Pharmacy we also stock some amazing products that are specifically designed to help improve your period report card. Come in today and chat to our pharmacists and naturopaths about lifestyle and dietary changes that you can easily implement to reduce your PMS. . . . . . . . . #pms#periodreportcard#period#hormones#hormonalhealth#biopractica#barangaroo#integrativepharmacy#integrativemedicine#holistichealth#holisticmedicine#compoundingpharmacy#naturopathy#naturopath#naturopathicmedicine#herbalmedicine#wellbeing#nourish#restore#barangaroopharmacy#healthyliving#pharmacy#chemist#nutrition#nutritionist
As an ND, I value the wholistic approach, diving deep with patients to understand ALL aspects of their health & lifestyle - the physiological, biochemical, physical, mental and emotional. Our body works dynamically and intricately as a whole, not as separate systems. Being stressed can cause break outs, loose poops & more colds because our skin, digestion, adrenals and immune system are all connected. That’s why it is so important to address all the pieces of the puzzle! Curious to learn more or have any questions? Ask away or DM me 🙋🏻♀️
Strive to eat legumes everyday! 🔥 // The longest living cultures on Earth regularly consume these foods as they are loaded with nutrients, readily available, cheap, and last forever. Nutritional research has shown that these foods extend human lifespan. Throw them into your salad, wrap them in a tortilla, or just eat them on top of rice and avocados. // 👉🏼 Follow @teamplants for more plant-based health info👨🏻⚕️ - 👇🏼 Rp @davidclearyveganpt . Comment your favorite one below! ⬇️ . 🍽 A staple in any plant-based diet, legumes include beans, lentils, peas and even peanuts! . 😋Legumes are a great source of macronutrients like protein, carbs and with little fat in most and lots of fiber. They are also packed with micronutrients like folate, potassium, iron and magnesium. These vary between beans and lentils, but they are definitely something worthy of adding into your diet, even if you’re not currently vegan. . 🥣So how do I add them in? Some dishes I enjoy are a red lentil curry, 5 bean chilli, homemade BBQ baked beans, cooking some beans with rice & veg & obviously hummus! . 🥜 You can cook from dried, which is what the measurements are above, or you can buy canned which are pre-cooked. 100g canned beans will not yield the same values per 100g as above as they are filled with water, but in generally 100g dried will become 200-250g cooked. . 🌱 I’ve included 6 popular ones above, but there’s plenty more. Overall they contain approximately 330 calories, 20-25g protein, 40-50g carbs and over 10g of fiber per 100g uncooked. Soybeans have slightly different macros, with higher protein and fats. . 🚿 If you’re struggling to digest beans, make sure you rinse them thoroughly, start with 20g, don’t overdo it with other fiber rich foods in the same meal, try cooking them from scratch yourself or simply try a different option, you will digest some better than others! - #legumes#longevity#fiber#superfoods
