Dr. Joey Newsletter – March

March is nutrition month! Time to get back to the basics of eating and leave processed foods behind (I promise you, you will feel so much better for it). This month, we want to help you go green! From kale to matcha and easy to make green recipes – the more alkaline we can make you, the better you will look and feel.

I am also very excited to make my Metabolism Boosting Supplement available for all. We have had great results with this supplement at Shulman Weight Loss clinics and along with our programs, the metabolism booster has helped so many burn belly fat, lose inches and break a plateau. The metabolism booster is individually packed and contains EGCG from green tea, conjugated linoleic acid and chromium. To learn more or to order, click here.

Our team loves to hear your success stories and comments. If you would like to reach us, simply e-mail and we will get back to you.

And... save the date! On April 11th, I will be speaking at the Richmond Hill Country Club on "The secrets to weight loss". Seating is limited - more details to follow... but be sure to put it on your calendar for 7pm!

Wishing you best health and happiness,

Dr. Joey Shulman DC, RNCP

I recently came across this website and was fascinated by its unique concept. Tea Sparrow offers a monthly subscription to a wide variety of loose leaf teas, which are delivered right to your front door.

For those of you who love teas but have exhausted all of your "bagged" options, this is a great website to explore. Tea Sparrow offers teas from all around the world, and display the contents of the monthly tea box on their website for you to see. A month's subscription makes the perfect gift for a friend and is also a great way to treat yourself!

The benefits of coconut water are getting a lot of recent press and make this product nutrition month worthy.

The pure blend offered by Vita Coco is an excellent way to stay hydrated throughout the day and during or after a workout. It's high potassium, and electrolyte content keeps your body well balanced and keeps you feeling good. When picking a coconut water, avoid the fruit flavoured versions as they are often higher in sugars. My advice?

Stick to the 100% pure by Vita coco.

This powdered organic match offered by David's Tea is an excellent source of antioxidants - in fact one cup of this tea is equivalent to 10 cups of green tea in terms of antioxidant content. Its strong taste and pleasant aroma makes this tea an excellent way to wake up in the morning and is also great for after-meal cravings.

For best results, whisk a teaspoon of this matcha powder in with almost-boiled water and allow to cool slightly.

Drink and enjoy!

These natural, pre moistened facial towelettes give your skin a refreshing, clean feel, while effectively removing dirt, oil and makeup.

The white tea and cucumber extracts found in these facial cloths leave your skin feeling tingly and clean.


My friends at Genuine Health are all about being alkaline and healthy! 
Using their pH paper and testing saliva or urine, you can determine your pH level.

Did you know kale has more iron than red meat?

The nutritional benefits of kale has long been recognized. Chalked with numerous vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and vitamin K, this vegetable is the perfect way to increase and enhance your nutritional status in a tasty way. At 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 0 grams of fat per cup, be adventurous and explore new ways to incorporate kale into you and your family's diet.


Kale Chips

I admit – I have a kale chip problem (I literally can eat an entire head of kale!). Move over chips – this nutrient dense, calorie light option is a much healthier way to go!


  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt for taste


Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Remove the stems and cut the kale leaves into 1 inch pieces.
In a bowl, combine olive oil, salt and kale and mix thoroughly. 
Place parchment paper on baking sheet and lay out kale chips.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until kale is lightly brown.
