Avoiding the Winter Blues:
It can be a long snow season in North America — sometimes you need help in keeping your energy and attitude fired-up when temps dip well below the zero mark. The Natural Health Clinic carries several products that help with depression or seasonal depression (SAD) and keeping your body strong through the winter season.

  • Light therapy lamps ~ we carry two versions; one is the Litebook from The Litebook Co. in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The other is the goLITE BLU energy light from Philips.
  • We offer a variety of supplements and remedies ~ Vitamin D & B complex, St. John’s Wort, folic acid, constitutional homeopathy and several other treatments for staying above the snowdrifts.  See Katherine Willow’s blog post.
  • Try our Healthy Eating & Activity program or several other therapeutic treatments offered by clinic practitioners. Click here to visit our clinic website.
