Dr. Joey's October Newsletter

October is one of the absolute best months of the year. Warming soups and stews make their return, leaves turn magical colors, and there is the perfect chill in the air. To help enjoy all the benefits the harvest season has to offer in good health, this edition of the Dr. Joey newsletter is filled with tips and tricks on how to ward off colds and flus, game changing health advice that really works and... how to drink your java in a healthy way (and who doesn't love that?).

We also wanted to remind our valued members at www.drjoey.com that October is breast cancer awareness month (see pictures of our participation at the CIBC run for the cure below!). Our goal is to help men and women focus on prevention through clean eating and healthy living. If you have any stories, clean eating tips or products you would like to share with us ? please... drop us a line! We always love hearing from you at drjoey@drjoey.com

Wishing you a healthy Fall season,

Dr. Joey Shulman DC, RNCP

Dr. Joey's ALL GOOD bars 
at the CIBC Run for the Cure

The Dr. Joey's ALL GOOD team was thrilled to be part of the CIBC Run for the Cure on Oct. 5th. Thanks to all the runners and walkers who stopped by the ALL GOOD booth to pick up their free bar full of protein, fiber and natural goodness. We met wonderful people, heard some great stories and were able to talk "clean eating" all day long (our favourite subject!). Check out some of our pictures below.


Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts

Of all my favorite ingredients to put into my morning smoothie - hemp hearts tops the charts! In just 3tbsp of hemp hearts, you will benefit from 10 g of protein and 10 g of omega 3 essential fats (great for hair, skin and digestion). To top it off, one serving of hemp hearts offers close to half your daily recommended intake of magnesium. Check out my morning "hempolicous" smoothie below!


Kicking Horse Coffee

If you are like me and love your morning java (yes... I quit for 2 months but am now back to 1 per day!), Kicking Horse coffee is a brand you will want to know about. Kicking Horse uses only the finest, organically grown Arabica beans from certified Fair Trade sources. It is grown at higher altitudes than most other coffee beans, giving the coffee a bold and rich flavor. Grind just before using and mix 2 heaping tablespoons of ground coffee beans with fresh, cold, filtered water. Brew for about 4 minutes and store leftover coffee beans in a sealed container to keep it fresh! As a healthier sweetener ? try sweetening your morning cup of coffee with low glycemic coconut sugar or drink it black.


Sencha Naturals Green Tea +C Effervescent Drink Mix

This green tea and vitamin C drink mix is the perfect "immune boosting go-to" to have on hand during cold and flu season. The blend of sencha and matcha green teas offer more nutrients than standard tea bags and are the ideal immune supporting ingredients. Vitamin C and antioxidants are also found in the blend ? providing 300% of our recommended daily intake. Ginger, turmeric, and orange peel are also blended in for further general wellness and support. How to use - pour package into large mug, add 8-10 oz of hot or room temperature water, stir well and enjoy! Please note: liquid will bubble when powder is added in.


Oscillococcinum by Boiron

Oscillococcinum is a must have homeopathic remedy that should be taken at he first sign of flu like symptoms (chills, aches, fever or headache). I cannot tell you how many times it has saved me in the past! Simply place 1 vial under your tongue letting the small white beads gently dissolve. Of course, talk to your doctor for any health complaint.

Top 5 things we love about... pumpkin!

  1. Pumpkins are filled with health promoting nutrients such as vitamin A and C.
  2. 1 cup of canned pumpkin offers 7 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.
  3. 1 cup of pumpkin contains only 49 calories but... because of the high fiber content, you feel fuller for longer!
  4. Pumpkin seeds are naturally rich in certain plant-based chemicals called phytosterols that have been shown in studies to reduce LDL or "bad" cholesterol.
  5. Pumpkin seeds are rich in tryptophan ? an amino acid that is necessary for the production of seratonin (your "happy" brain chemical), helping boost your mood naturally.
