Quick Tips To Boost Your Immunity!

At this time of year, I am eager to educate my patients on the importance of keeping their immune system working well. No one like to get effected by the variety of bugs that are prevalent at this time of year.

Here are some sure fire tips to keep in mind especially at this time of year:

1. Wash your hands after touching doorknobs and be careful putting your fingers in your eyes, or anywhere else on your face.

2. Wear a scarf, especially if you have a tendency for sore throats when you get the flu. It makes a difference! 

3. Avoid getting exhausted. Maintaining your energy so that your immune system is able to fight off what comes your way is important. It is a fact that chronically tired people get sick more often. Come in for an assessment and I will get you on track!

4. Make an extra effort to eat foods that naturally promote immunity. Here are some ideas:

  • chopped up garlic (let it sit on the counter for 1o minutes before you use it so there can be a release of certain potent enzymes)
  • onions- lots of them!
  • ginger in your cooking, and also to drink as a tea (use fresh, organic ginger)
  • powdered barley greens (can pick up at most natural health food stores)- it is high in B2 and B6- important or the immune system in being able to react, and B9 (folic acid) which is critical for cell health
  • foods rich in Vitamin C: berries, brussel sprouts, citrus fruits, kiwi, bell peppers and pineapple to name a few!
  • Come in and receive homeopathic injectable remedies and get some immune supportive shots to give you a boost!
Apply some of these tips above to get started on keeping your immunity thriving!

Why not make this the best year ever - and do all you can to stay healthy---which inevitably leads to greater happiness, and more time and energy to do the things you love in life! Feel free to book your appointment to consult with me at your convenience to create an IMMUNE BOOSTING PLAN  here or call the office at 604-731-7789.

How to Become A Miracle Worker.

When I was a child, I wanted to be a "Miracle Worker" when I grew up. 

Other careers did not make sense to me.

Now, let me define miracle first before you jump to any conclusions...

To me, a miracle is "something that happens outside of one's current belief system."

I have always been motivated by finding ways to reduce people's suffering and pain. 

I thought to myself:   most people want the same things in life: love, peace, joy and ease

And yet, there are so many other states of being that seem to overshadow the genuine desires of human beings.

SO...what does it take to create a miracle?

If a miracle is something that happens outside of your current belief system, then destroying obsolete beliefs would be the call to action.

 Everyone has access to these kinds of miracles. You included.

So, how can you shift your perception or belief about a certain problem you believe to  have?

You start with what every miracle worker I have ever known does.

You let the barricades of belief collapse to the ground. 

You let the light in.

Miracle workers come to know the light that they are by understanding what created those barriers to start off with. 

Because underneath any barrier is a whole lot of light. 

So my question to you is, how can you let your walls come down?

How can you let the light in? 

What would a miracle be for you right now?

Become a miracle worker too.

It's not magic. It just makes sense.

A glimpse into Dr. Alexina's mind…

When I was in my 4 th year of Naturopathic College, we had to do a case study on a patient and describe all the different possible approaches and angles that one could take to help the person resolve the symptoms they came in with. My report ended up being nearly 20 pages long, about 14 pages longer then what was expected.

My teacher made a comment which has stuck with me all these years. He said, “This is a glimpse into Alexina’s mind.”

He had acknowledged something about me that still proves to be true several years later and something I have come to understand about what makes my style of healing unique.

I am committed to perseverance and finding solutions that lead to increased happiness and epic levels of health, not just mediocrity. One dear friend described me as like a “female Ganesh.” For those of you who don’t know, Ganesh is a Hindu God who is known to be a remover of obstacles and bringer of light, abundance and joy.

I love cracking unhealthy codes…especially the ones that distract one from being able to live their life without purpose and meaning. Truly, I feel like a warrioress and ambassador for your unfulfilled and un-lived life. I was speaking with a patient a couple weeks ago and said “Can you imagine what you would be doing with your time if you were not always thinking about your body discomforts?”

Can YOU imagine this possibility too?

So…back to a glimpse into my mind:

When you come to see me, I first pay attention to:

·         - What you write or don’t write in your intake form
·          - what you emphasize or do not emphasize when speaking to me

I am listening to the physical and emotional symptoms you are describing and I am seeking to understand what the main stressors are. I am connecting the dots in your story and trying to understand when things went side-ways. With the back ground I have, I can’t help but be intuitive and pick up on certain areas that stand out to me as possible places where I would want to ask you more questions about what happened and how you got there. 

I’m thinking about:

·          - Your diagnosis and the appropriate labs/testing to ensure we know exactly what we are dealing with
·          - The numerous different tools that I can offer you to see which ones are most appropriate for your situation
·          - Your personality and the style of treatment or therapy that makes logical sense for you
·          - The treatments you have done in the past that have and have not worked and why that might be
·          - What could nourish you - physically with food and herbs and emotionally with activities to promote ease and peace in your being
·          - The patterns that caused the imbalances in the first place
·          - Your strengths and what is possible for you

  You see, there is nothing in the world that brings me more joy then seeing you healthier and happier. And I hope a glimpse into my mind helps you open up to the possibilities for you that may yet be untapped…

Why a Naturopathic Doctor is good to have in your corner

There is a huge variety in the people who come and see Naturopathic doctors. Some people come because they are in  discomfort with chronic symptoms.Others come to get a sense of what else they can be doing to be even healthier and happier then they already are. Athletes come to get advice about what supplements and eating plan will best support them. Mothers bring their kids in to help with eczema or trouble with focus or anxiety. Couples may visit to get guidance with having a baby. Busy professionals come to get a handle on the stress that is wreaking havoc on their body. Some come because they feel they are just not feeling quite right and don't know why.

With all of these people, there is a common thread..a desire to feel better then how they felt when they walked into the appointment.

Sometimes patients wonder about a few things, like "What if I am on a current health plan with my medical doctor already?"
I can reassure you that I work with your current plan if that plan is working for you and augment that plan with more solutions that you have not yet explored.


I do not have a plan moving forward for my health right now, and I need one. Can you help?

An action plan is critical when managing your health. I create a plan that makes sense to you. It is important to me that you understand what the process of healing entails and that you feel empowered when you leave your visit with me. I always let you know when I think you need to consult with an MD or a specialist of any kind. I believe wholeheartedly in teamwork.

Keep in mind...

1. I work with where you are at and help you see and understand the patterns of disharmony in your health so that it makes sense for you.
2. I offer suggestions so you can understand what can help you to move on a path that will alleviate the suffering you are experiencing.
3. I provide you with inspiration and hope so that you know your symptoms are not who you are, but what you are experiencing.
4. I stand beside you as your advocate because I believe in your infinite potential.

What I love about helping you! 

1. I can often see patterns that perhaps you have not yet seen.
2. I show you a shift in perspective so that you see there is another way to work with your situation which leaves you feeling lighter and brighter.
3. I am passionate in empowering you with solutions using nutrition, supplements, remedies, lifestyle counselling and a variety of different treatments.  I have 15 years experience in working in the health world and I can support you in sharing some of the knowledge I have gained.
