The 4 Pillars of Female Health [EVENT]

International Women’s Day is just around the corner!

As women, the doctors at StoneTree understand the overwhelm women feel. We all juggle many roles and commitments, and it often comes at an expense to our health. 

While we strive for balance and know that self-care is important, how can we support our health from the inside out in a way that sets us up for success?

Join Drs Maggie, Bronwyn, Kendra and Candice on Thursday March 5th to celebrate International Women’s Day with a great evening of networking, health information sessions, and access to a variety of health resources.

The 4 Pillars of Female Health: How Women Transform Their Bodies, Minds, and Hearts from the Inside Out starts at 7 PM at Mayka Studios in Collingwood, and will be an evening of information, cocktails, kombucha, and networking with local women and health professionals.  

Information sessions will include the 4 pillars of female health:

  • Gut Health/Liver/Diet & Food/Blood Sugar
  • Stress/Sleep/Self-Care
  • Hormones/Hormonal Transitions/Periods/Libido/Sex
  • Mood/Mental Health/sense-of-Purpose/Identity/Community

Bring a friend! We look forward to seeing you there.

Grow a Mo, Save a Bro: The Crisis in Men’s Health

We spend a lot of time on women’s and children’s health issues here. At some level, that makes sense–after all, the general practitioners at StoneTree are women, so the health concerns of women are top of mind for us. We’re living them ourselves, and many of us are moms, too.

But there’s more to it than that. Men and women approach health care differently, and as a result, are served differently, too. Women are more likely to seek help from a care provider, and they are more likely to bring their children in for care. They are also more likely to come to a care provider earlier in the onset of their health complaint. 

In comparison, men tend to visit the doctor less often, and have shorter consultations when they do. They are more likely to see their health care provider later after the onset of their complaint, and they are less likely to report all of their symptoms.  

There is a persistent and troubling myth that men don’t care about their health but they do. The system is just not set up with male sensibilities in mind. This is part of the reason that men’s health is in crisis. Men die, on average, six years earlier than women, largely for preventable reasons. It’s a tragedy.

The organize that speaks to this issue best is the MOVEMBER movement, founded by two friends over a beer in a bar. Check out their origin story here. What began in 2003 with 30 “Mo Bros” has now seen more than 5 million participants.

The movement started with a focus on prostate cancer and has since incorporated testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention. Their goal by 2030 is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

How do they do it?

  • Give facts. Guys need data, info and facts to feel empowered and to take action. Did you know that when detected early, prostate cancer survival rates are better than 98%? Find it late, and those survival rates drop below 26%.
  • Give self-care resources. Guys want to take care of themselves. Teaching them self-care like the know thy nuts helps them feel in control.
  • Tell the truth. Mental health is a huge issue for men. Globally, every minute, for example, a man dies by suicide–in Canada, 75% of suicides are men. Men tend to keep to themselves and not talk. This website speaks to men about speaking out like a man would.
  • The Mo Movement. It’s Movember! Show your support. Grow a mo, attend an event, or contribute to the movement. You’ll find all the details here.

Hey! You don’t have to grow a Mo to support Movember! There are all kinds of ways to participate, including walking or running 60km over the month! Learn more here.

June 22nd is #Eat Together Day

“It’s at the table where we can turn a house into a home, a stranger into a friend, and a village into a community. But more than anything, eating together simply connects us. And our world can use a little more connection right now.

This year, let’s eat together on June 22nd

Thanks President Choice. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Spread the word and spread the love.  #EatTogether this Friday, June 22nd.

 

Keto Diet Info Night

With all the media coverage around the ketogenic diet, we get a lot of questions about this somewhat confusing and potentially overwhelming diet. Studies seem to show some promising health results, but that doesn’t make it any easier for people to understand it. Fortunately, we have Dr. Maggie for that!

Dr. Maggie will be answering all your questions on June 19th at 7 PM at StoneTree Clinic in Collingwood. Plan to get lots of information that you can use, along with recipes, and samples of great keto options. A delicious and insightful way to spend some time on a Tuesday!

If you’ve been wondering:

  • Isn’t too much fat bad for you?
  • Is this just the Atkins thing all over again?
  • Aren’t ketones a bad thing?
  • What are ketones, anyway?
  • How the heck do I eat this way and not be starving?

Or anything else about the ketogenic diet, then this is the session for you.

Register at by emailing [email protected], or calling 705-444-5331. Bring a friend!

It’s Naturopathic Medicine Week!

May 14-20th is Naturopathic Medicine Week and we want to shout out to all the thousands of awesome patients we have had the privilege of serving in our 17 years of practice in the Georgian Triangle.

This week is a time when we not only try to promote the strengths of our profession, but we all reconnect with the principles that guide us in the work we do–the principles that make naturopathic medicine so helpful to patients.

What are ND’s all about? We believe:

  • In the healing power of nature. Not just using “natural remedies,” but also connecting to the idea that the body can heal itself, it just needs all the right tools to do so.
  • In getting to the root of the problem. Not all patients have headaches for the same reason.  Some have headaches because of a food intolerance. Others due to a nutrient deficiency, some because of a hormone imbalance. The root cause can be different for different people.
  • In treating the individual. For a naturopath, every case is unique. We like to understand what is happening in each individual patient–as a result we ask lots of questions and often do many blood tests.
  • That prevention is the best medicine. Keeping you healthy is a whole lot easier than treating your disease.
  • That doctors are teachers. ND’s are passionate about giving you, the patient, all the information and insight you need to feel in control of your health and your health care decisions.

What Your Friends and Family Should Know

If you know someone that can benefit from naturopathic medicine, but isn’t quite sure, here are a few useful details.

  • ND’s are not covered by OHIP, but many extended health plans are now covering our services. Why?  Because patients of naturopathic doctors are healthier, use fewer prescription medications, and miss work less often.
  • We offer a complimentary “meet-the-doctor” visit with one of our awesome ND’s–they’ll answer any and all questions at no charge.
  • We’re now direct billing to extended health plans making it even easier for you to connect to your health through naturopathic medicine!

To learn more, or to book your appointment, call 705-444-5331, or visit us at www.stonetreeclinic.com. Happy Naturopathic Medicine Week!
