Addressing Chronic
Illness in Ottawa

Every year we get sicker. The rates of Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Obesity, Depression have increased steadily for more than half a century, despite huge increases in health care spending. Some people believe that our genes are responsible ? But our genes have NOT changed during the last 50 years. What has changed is our LIFESTYLE. Our lifestyle changes have taken us away from what we genetically require to be healthy.

We are like a tiger stuck in a cage, without regular exercise, feeding on the wrong, toxic laden food, lacking social connectedness. An animal exposed to such conditions, would certainly get sick. This conclusion makes sense to us. If we apply the same logic to the human animal (we are animals, after all), people are quick to dismiss poor lifestyle as the causative factor. The evidence, however, is undeniable.

We are not living in accordance with our genetic requirements. LiveWell FOR LIFE will help you realize that the current way we eat, move, think and sleep is the cause of chronic illness. We will empower you with the knowledge to easily change your lifestyle for the better. We will teach you how to LiveWell FOR LIFE!

Brain-Body Connection

We strive to make your first visit to our office a comfortable experience. Our receptionist will welcome you and ask you to complete our required forms. These forms will give us important information about you and your health. The doctor will then spend some time asking about specific questions about your health and wellness to determine if chiropractic care is right for you. If so, certain treatments will be discussed. If chiropractic care is not the answer we can help refer you to another doctor. As always, nothing will be done without your consent.

Eat Well
For Life

This is not a diet, instead an approach to fulfilling the nutritional requirements of the body for optimal function. It is eating real food while incorporating LiveWell Essential supplements (fish oil, probiotics, vitamin D). Maintaining the 80-20 rule ensures success. Expect weight loss, decreased inflammation, and increased energy.

Move Well
For Life

Movement is like a nutrient that is required by the body. Without it, health status falters. We require some form of movement each day, for at least 30-60 minutes. Move Well For Life is based on movements that EVERY human requires to be healthy: mobility and spinal hygiene exercises, lifting your own body weight, burst training, and slow and steady motion. Depending on your goals and objectives, each one of these areas can be scaled, but they form the basic foundation for optimal human movement, health and longevity. The key is to choose activities that you love!

Think Well

Sleep Well
For Life

While you sleep your body is busy repairing, healing and recovering from the previous day in preparation for the day ahead. Our poor lifestyles have a tremendous impact on our ability to sleep well. Our sleeping environment (ambient light, electronics, temperature, mattress and pillows) prevents us from truly resting. Discover how to develop a routine before going to sleep to ensure you enjoy a vital, deep, recuperative rest.
