A Guide to Sugar #1: Why Quit Sugar?

Jul 10, 2018

If you told me over a year ago I would quit eating sugar I would have laughed. What a joke. I was a full fledged sugar addict.

With the Canadian government announcing this week the legalization of Marijuana I wanted to touch upon the health implications this could have.

Marijuana, although in the process of being no longer illegal is still not healthy.

Jun 19, 2018

The power went down in Acubalance last week. Which on its own makes for a less than ideal day at the clinic, but what accompanied the power outage was an alarm in the waiting room that beeped every 7 seconds at an irritating pitch and tone.
