Preventing allergies in babies and issues such as colic, eczema, asthma and digestive problems are growing priorities for many parents.
One of the most common topics that parents want to discuss in my practice is regarding the process of food introduction with their infants.
I believe when to introduce foods is changing as new evidence has many of my colleagues and I making new recommendations to our patients.
The evidence is showing that introducing small amounts of food much earlier, even highly allergenic ones, can prevent future allergies.
Are you already suffering from a runny nose, congestion, sneezing, headaches and itchy eyes?
Seasonal allergies can be extremely uncomfortable and disruptive to everyday life.
What if you could get through spring and not have to take any over-the-counter medications ever again?
It is a real possibility with sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT), a research-proven airborne allergy treatment.
Are you among the 67 per cent of Canadians who are vitamin D deficient?
Everything from migraines to cancers, depression, osteoporosis, poor immunity and heart disease can be linked to low levels of vitamin D.
A survey conducted by Statistics Canada found evidence that two-thirds of the Canadian population has vitamin D levels below the required amount associated with optimal health.
Are you part of this statistic?
