Establishing a rational approach to health

Dr. TonyNSA

I’ve been meaning to write about supplements for a long time now. I will often recommend supplements to new patients as well as order supplements at the clinic but I realized that I have never focused on the topic before. Often when I start to write about something, I get to a point where I realize I could go off …

Take a moment for yourself

Dr. TonyNSA

The other day when Karen came in for her regular appointment, she asked me “Is it strange for me to notice more tension when I notice a part of my body relaxing?” The answer? Not at all. During an entrainment session, when you feel your body or a part of your body starting to relax, that means that the nervous …

What does less tension mean to you?

Dr. TonyNSA

If you don’t pay closer attention, you won’t notice what’s right in front of you. Case in point, over the years I’ve had patients come in regularly for months and then one day say to me: “Hey is that sign/picture new? How long has that been there?” I usually laugh (I do have a mean streak) because that sign or …

The Light Bulb Moment

Dr. TonyNSA

Have you ever had a moment in your life when the “light bulb over your head turned on”? Have you ever had a flash, an insight, a moment when several things all organically came together and it made sense to you? What if you could have more of these moments? How would your life be different? What if you could …

Are you surviving or creating?

Dr. TonyNSA

We spend much of our days managing our lives. Some of us do daily, monthly and yearly planning. We do it so well and so much that we don’t even notice it anymore (until we feel overwhelmed). I have developed the habit of sitting down in the evening to look at what’s on the list of to do’s for the …

Feeling connected to the greater whole

Dr. TonyNSA

Growing up, saying goodbye to summer always felt a little sad, especially when I was still in school:). Maybe it was because I felt I had more freedom during the summer. The days are longer and there’s more to do outside. As I have gotten older, my favourite season has become autumn. Especially these early days are still warm but …

How to connect

Dr. TonyNSA

Connecting isn’t a destination, it’s a continuous process. With practice it becomes easier and more natural. When I say that it’s not a destination, I mean that it’s not a fixed state such as a peaceful state, or a zen state, or a relaxed state. These can be felt when you’re connecting but they aren’t necessarily the desired outcome of …

What do you and Canada geese have in common?

Dr. TonyNSA

There is a natural phenomenon called entrainment, that occurs in nature, between living things and some non-living things. For example, if you hang several pendulum clocks on a wall and set the various pendulums to swing at different speeds, after 24 hours, they will have synchronized with each other.  Schools of fish turn instantly in the water using entrainment to …

What’s behind the magic?

Dr. TonyNSA

I used to watch the Amazing Kreskin on TV when I was a kid. I was amazed at his performances, how it looked like he could read peoples’ minds. When we come across something that we can’t explain and we can’t make sense of, we tend to refer to that as magic. It can be quite stunning to our senses. …

The Power of the Subconscious

Dr. TonyNSA

Lately there has been one quote that has become a central focus for me. It’s one that I have shared during workshops. “We are what we repeatedly do. ‘Healing’ therefore is not an action, but a habit” ~ Aristotle I find this quote holds true when it comes to everyday healthy habits such as exercise, time management or diet. But …
