In recent decades, we have all heard how stress affects us. But most people make the connection to their peace of mind, or may go so far as to feel that stress is ‘bad’ for their heart health or perhaps mental health. What most of us don’t know, until making the Stress and the Disease Connection, is that stress is primarily governed by our adrenal glands, and if they aren’t functioning optimally, every bodily system will suffer the adverse effects. Join stress experts Dr. Karen Jensen ND and Dr. Marita Schauch ND as they outline all the environmental, societal, and systemic ways our bodies deal with stress every day, and learn how to combat stress naturally, for a better, healthier, and more disease-free you. 

Collagen: Myths & Misconceptions

Paging through beauty magazines, we see advertisements for “anti-wrinkle” creams and “serums,” leading us to believe that all we need to do to increase the youth-preserving collagen in our skin is to rub it on topically! Neither creams nor procedures do anything to help your body generate health-improving and beauty-supporting collagen. If your body is generating collagen it shows: you will radiate health and vitality at any age. Collagen – Myths and Misconceptions debunks myths about collagen “creams,” beauty industry promises and plastic surgery to show you how and why building and generating collagen is an essential component to true health and beauty. Collagen – Myths and Misconceptions is available at most health food stores across Canada (e.g. Canadian Vitamin ShopMom’s Vitamin Fix)

In The Adrenal Stress Connection Dr. Karen Jensen, ND and Dr. Marita Schauch, BSc, ND, explore how healthy adrenal glands prevent chronic disease and allow us to maintain energy and vitality even during stressful times. The Adrenal Stress Connection is available at most health food stores across Canada and online through Amazon and Indigo.
