Winter is here!
What is your plan to stay physically active during the long cold season? Some people are excited to get outdoors and enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, skating and tobogganing. If you are bringing the kids out for an afternoon of tobogganing, make sure you get some exercise too. Walking up that hill and sliding down allows you to join in the fun and get your cardiovascular system and muscles pumping!
Don't forget that cycling and running are still options during the winter as long as you have appropriate gear that keeps you warm and safe.
Many people, especially mature adults and those with mobility concerns, don't get out for walks often in the winter due to concerns about slipping on the ice. Thunder Bay District Health Unit offers a morning mall walking program, 7:30 to 11am Monday through Saturday. Click here for other ideas of indoor and outdoor walking locations

For Your Health
Did you know...
Most extended health care benefits cover Naturopathic services?
The advantages of green tea
Green tea contains many beneficial polyphenols, including the heavily studied ECGC. Research has shown that green tea, and ECGC can minimize inflammation, help control cholesterol levels, reduce the spread of cancer, and contribute to the maintenance of balanced blood sugar levels. If you are a coffee drinker, consider switching to green tea. If you do not currently consume caffeinated beverages, look for a caffeine-free green tea.
Make an appointment with one of our Naturopathic Doctors to find out which natural treatments are safe and appropriate for you.
