Heart Qi, Stress & Acupuncture

By Laura Shin, Registered Acupuncturist

 

Acupuncture is probably best known for its ability to reduce pain and speed healing. Perhaps less well known is its effectiveness at helping control the body’s response to stress. While in ancient times stress came from the constant search for food, shelter, and safety; today, it more likely comes from work, traffic, financial pressures, and relationships. Our nervous system evolved, however, to allow us to respond to stressful situations. First, by helping us confront any challenging situation with the sympathetic nervous system’s fight-or-flight reaction and then by returning the body to balance or homeostasis with the parasympathetic nervous system, which is commonly called the state of rest-and-digest. We are meant to spend more time in homeostasis, but it seems that nowadays we are far too often subject to constant levels of stress that don’t allow us to relax. […]

10 Nutrition-Boosting Tips for Athletes

By Liane Wansbrough, Holistic Nutritionist

While trail mixes and energy bars are marketed as pre workout snacks, most are sugar bombs that don’t provide lasting energy. Try one to two handfuls of raw nuts or seeds (almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts and pumpkin seeds are great choices) and a piece of fresh fruit. If you buy your nuts and seeds in bulk store them in the freezer so they don’t go rancid.

Smoothies make a great pre-workout meal because blending helps pre-digest food, making it easier on your digestive system.

Sweet potatoes are a quality carbohydrate that can be eaten prior to a big workout or training day. Sprinkle a baked sweet potato with sea salt and drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil or grass-fed butter to enhance absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Other quality carbohydrates include quinoa, wild or brown rice, amaranth, millet, squash, carrots and beets.
