12 Wellness Tips for a Healthy and Happy New Year
For general digestive health, naturopathic doctor Glenn Finley of New Leaf Holistic Health in Kingston loves probiotics. He recommends patients begin with a foundational flora (4-5 of the basic strains) and then move to a more broad spectrum probiotic (10-15 strains, 25-50 billion microbes). Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, yogurt, kombucha, kim chi, and tempeh, are another way to eat our medicine. Consider a yearly cleanse where you avoid gluten, dairy, soy, and egg and incorporate juicing, teas or soups to lower the toxic burden.
