Glow cleanse is home made right here in Montreal. It consists of 6 yummy smoothies to take during the corse of the day. Compared to a juice cleanse, you get a lot more proteins a fibbers when you do a smoothie one. You can choose to either do a 1 or 3 day cleanse. I adopted to do a one day cleanse since it was my first time doing any type of cleanse!
I decided to do it right now as a type of "spring cleaning" for my body after a long and cold winter. It was also a type of reset button to push before I had to dive head first into my university final exams. You should choose to do a cleanse when you can have a day or two to really relax and take care of yourself. Going to the spa, getting a massage, doing some relaxing yoga … You're releasing all the toxins from your body!
Be aware a smoothie cleanse is not for everyone! If you are expecting to be a mother or under 18 you are not illegible to participate. Also if you have a illness , taking any medication or diabetic you have to have the okay from your doctor to do the cure.
The first smoothie is the Elixir Opaline. A mix of cashew milk, spinach, avocado and chlorella. I started my day off with a cup of hot water & lemon juice like I do every morning. While reading my book, the psychology of yoga by Georg Feuerstein, I drank the yummy smoothie. I'm not a big breakfast eater so I had no hunger cravings all morning.
On my way to yoga at lunch time, I drank the second smoothie in the cleanse. The Gold Dose, made of; water, mango, orange, tangerines, chia seeds, lemon juice, aloe vera, turmeric and baobab. It has a got a nice a refreshing taste to perk you up before the afternoon. I still had no hunger cravings and felt amazing during yoga.
The third smoothie you get to have early afternoon is the Jade Cure. It's the classic green smoothie made of water, pineapple, mangos, kale, lime juice, match, spirulina and moringa. I went to the book store to read books about my up coming trip to Europe. At the time I started to have some headaches but drinking a couple cups of herbal tea and they started to subside. The trick to doing a cleanse is to drink enough fluids to wash out all the toxins in your body.
The yummiest smoothie of the cure is definitely in my opinion the Cocoa Concoction, but maybe it's just because I am a choco-holic! Before drinking this smoothie, I started to have a little big a hunger cravings but drinking this up made it all go away. It's made of water, banana, berries, dates, cocoa, chia seeds, vanilla, coconut oil, macca and chilli. I drank it right up while I was doing statistic homework.
The second to last smoothie of the day is the Orange Potion. It's a consistent and filling smoothie made of water, mango, orange, carrot juice, pumpkin, ginger juice, lime juice and reishi mushrooms. Still at 6pm, I had no hunger cravings or dip in my energy. I was able to concentrate on my class without any distractions.
The final smoothie of the day is a relaxing blend of Masala Chai tea, banana, figs, chia seeds and hemp seeds. After taking a nice hot bath, I winded down to drink the Dream Infusion while writing down my thoughts of my day feeling nice and rested with lots of energy. I have a chronic condition called Irritable Bowl Syndrome and doing this cleanse really have a nice break to my digestive system.

We named our studio " Sacred Space " for a specific reason. We are offering a space of relaxation to the community, a space where people can come and ground themselves to their roots and connect with their min, body and soul. Although ours is offered to everyone who wants to come and take a class, you can make your own sacred space in your home where you can do yoga, meditate or create. Here are some simple tips into making a space for yourself.
We tend to get caught up in everyday stresses quite easily. When we don't get the job we really wanted, we might tend to be depressed about it and loose motivation. When our significant other breaks up with us, we will wallow in our self pity for how ever long it takes us to get over them. Sometimes all these little dramas accumulate and then we loose sight of what really mattered in the first place. That black little cloud will follow you around everywhere and you will be under the impression that it will be there forever.
Shake yourself out of that funk. You are allowed to mourn whatever lose or failure for however long you need to. At a certain point, you are going to have to realize that not everything is eternally bad. Every time something bad happens, it won't last forever. You heal after you are hurt. The sun rises after every nightfall. Nothing lasts forever. Not the good or the bad.
Breath and be thankful every morning for the opportunities presented in front of you. Be thankful for the air that fills your lungs. Find something to be thankful of everyday.
Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you
Ceci est une invitation au Séminaire du Printemps.
Selon la médecine chinoise, c’est le moment idéal pour renaître à la vie et de travailler l'énergie du système Foie/Vésicule biliaire. À l’arrivée de cette saison, le petit Yang (énergie expansive) s’éveille et le cycle de vie recommence. L’eau, qui était figée par les froids de l’hiver, se remet à couler, la sève des arbres monte tout doucement, les bourgeons et les feuillent apparaissent. L’être humain aussi, partie intégrante de la nature, ressent ce réveil dans son corps. L’enthousiasme, la vitalité, les forces, reviennent et donnent le goût de s’épanouir. Le Foie, à l’image de l’élément Bois, étant l’organe le plus actif au printemps est considéré comme « l’Empereur ». Comme on renaît, du mouvement s’impose et je vous propose du Qi Gong tout en tenant compte du système Foie-Vésicule Biliaire. Ceci aura pour effet d’aider le Foie à se désengorger pour une meilleure désintoxication du sang, d’assurer une libre circulation d’énergie et de sang, de mieux nourrir les muscles et les tendons et d’harmoniser les émotions de colères et les frustrations. Pour prévenir, réduire ou même parfois éliminer certains malaises reliés à un engorgement du Foie dont voici quelques symptômes: migraines à répétition, fatigue, dépression, faiblesse des muscles et tendons, difficulté à digérer les graisses, troubles et douleurs reliés au cycle menstruel, crampes, spasmes, engourdissements, allergies de toutes sortes, excès de colère, frustration, stress

Remember in those physical education where the teacher made you do challenges? Like the beep test etc … Unless you were the super competitive type, you probably did not enjoy theses classes. Recently I found this video on youtube of the Bring Sally Up challenge, not remembering this specific fitness challenge from high school I thought I would give it a try. Oh man, let me tell you, it's pretty tough! You can do it in squats or push-ups. For the past week I have been trying to do it a couple times a day. It's fun, simple and you need absolutely no equipment ! How far can you get ?
Naturopathic médecine relies for its healing knowledge on the vast repository of wisdom innate in the Earth. When you begin working with Naturopathic medicine, you will be using the oldest, most clinically researched medicine available - natural therapeutics that have been applied effectively for tens of thousand of years - combined with the best of contemporary research and technology.
Naturopathic médecine is a system of classical medicine defined by its philosophy. The term classical more fully captures the essence of naturopathic medicine than do the terms alternate or complementary. The roots of naturopathic medicine reach back to classical times, when physicians studied the processes of health of well as the processes of disease. Those roots extend even deeper into the soil of time, to an era when humans understood the healing power in their own bodies, as well as in the plants and elements that surround them. The innate healing power, or natural intelligence, directs the body to regenerate and rebalance.
Many techniques or healing modalities fit under the naturopathic medicine umbrella. The philosophy of naturopathic medicine proved the link that unifies this group of diverse practices. A core aspect of this philosophy, is that the treatment must be individualized to meet the need of a particular patient. Naturopathic medicine treats diseases by treating people. Ten people with similar flu-like symptoms may walk into a naturopathic office, and walk out with ten different treatment plans, each tailored to meet a particular set of needs.
The diversity in treatment methods makes naturopathic medicine difficult for some people to understand. Legislative bodies understand other healing modalities - acupuncture for example - more readily becomes the method of healing is more or less consistent from patient to patient. Acupuncturists use needles. Chiropractic physicians administer force or non force methods of adjustment. Medicinal doctors prescribe pharmaceutical drugs and surgery. A naturopathic physician however has a vast array of potential treatments to choose from.
Naturopathic medicine relies on the body's innate strength.
