Herb Walk in Mississauga

We had a marvellous herb walk this past Saturday to celebrate mid-summer.

The weather was gorgeous and we witnessed & learned about many of the earth’s herbs as medicine in full summer delight.
Thank you to Riverwood Conservancy and to Nina Barabas for inviting me to join in this year’s celebrations!
Here are some pictures from the herb walk:

Naturopathic Doctor Spotlight – Dr. Tiffany Wyse – Naturopathic Doctor in Mississauga at Erin Mills Optimum Health

 

We asked our Naturopathic Doctors in Mississauga at Erin Mills Optimum Health to give me their favourite meal/recipe, favourite treatment modality and to give us ‘a day in the life’ of themselves! Enjoy this one by Dr. Tiffany Wyse:

 

Favourite Meal/Recipe: Squash Soup

(adapted from The AutoImmune Paleo Cookbook by Mickey Trescott)

  • 4 lbs. Butternut squash
  • 3 Tbsp. butter/ghee/coconut oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves2 cups Bone broth (I use chicken or turkey) plus more if needed
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 astragalus sticks (optional – this is a beneficial herb for the immune system)
  • sliced avocado for garnish OR yogurt OR nut butter
  • chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Depending on the day/evening or who I am feeding, I will add shredded cooked pastured chicken or turkey to the warm soup, shredded raw cheddar cheese or for my 5 year old daughter who is convinced she is a vegetarian (!) some chickpeas & nut butter or
wildwood (sprouted) tofu.

Favourite Treatment Modality: Herbal Medicine

I am trained as a Medical Herbalist & Doula as well as a Naturopathic Doctor. I love that with the practice of herbal medicine all of your senses, cells & spirit are influenced. You can see, feel & taste the effects of nature. I also feel that herbs bring medicine back into the hands of the people so that patients can have “medicine” at every meal simply by growing a few herbs in their garden and adding “spices” to their foods. I believe in the words of the forefather of medicine, Hippocrates when he said: “Let Food Be Thy Medicine.” I have witnessed the efficacy of herbal medicine from acute cold & flus to serious chronic & debilitating diseases with remarkable results.

A Day In The Life of Mississauga Naturopath Dr. Tiffany Wyse

6:30AM: A quiet day in my life begins with opening my eyes, practicing some deep breathing & Taoist yoga or Qigong.
Some days though begin with my 5 year old daughter staring at me and saying “mummy is the sun awake?” “is it time to wake up?!” On those mornings we try to have some breathing & meditation practice together before moving along for a bustling day.

7:30AM: Lunch Smoothie preparation. I prepare my daughter’s (usually vegetarian) nut-free lunch and smoothie. Although the smoothie ingredients change (patient’s know we have a detailed smoothie handout!), typically it contains Kefir, Strawberries, collagen powder, sunflower lethicin, hazelnut butter, Viriditas green super food, cinnamon and if I am sharing with my daughter, a splash of maple syrup.

9:00AM: Walk my daughter to school, chat with other mums & kids.
10:00AM: Begin an engaging day at Erin Mills Optimum Health with a heartfelt welcome from our front desk staff.
10:15AM: Time to work with dedicated patients coming in with health concerns ranging from fertility to autoimmune disease to diabetes.
1:00PM: Lunch – I will often leave the office to run errands, go for a walk and pick up sushi from Healthy Planet.
2:00PM: I begin the afternoon with a full belly and open heart ready to hand out treatment plans ranging from nutrition, herbs, labwork, acupuncture, homeopathy and auricular medicines.
4:45PM: Miso soup or ginger tea for a quick snack while charting.
7:00PM: Leave Erin Mills Optimum Health after a gratifying day!
7:45PM: Home just in time to finish bath time, read stories, have prayers and tuck my little one into bed.
8:00PM: Soup or Eggs as breakfast for dinner.
8:45PM: Quiet reading or a movie.
10:00PM: Stretching and meditation time.
11:00PM: Shower & bedtime.
