DIY Naturopathic Retreat

DIY Naturopathic Retreat

I recently was able to go on a DIY Naturopathic retreat to BC. It was amazing. So recharging. I was able to press the “reset” button and get back to a regular sleep cycle since my son was born 2 years ago!!

A colleague of mine said that she recently went to the Caribbean for 10 days and hasn’t felt this well since the 70’s. There’s a lot to be said for taking some time for yourself.

A big part of my retreat included hiking around Vancouver and Whistler’s wonderful lush trails. The air was crisp and smelled like cedar and salt. Sometimes i went by myself, and other times my good friend and fellow Naturopathic Doctor¬†and her 1 year old accompanied me. Chatting and laughing with her and her little guy was a delight and good food for my soul.

I also did some Kundalini Yoga, did a juice cleanse and spent time with friends and family.

No amount of supplements or herbs or Homeopathics could’ve taken the place of this retreat.

If you can’t take a week or two to yourself, then try even an afternoon spending time in nature. Its the best healing space of all! ¬†Get back to your naturally healthy self!
