Get Enough Omega-3s
Here in Saskatchewan, along with other landlocked Canadians, we may suffer from a lack of Omega-3 fatty acids in our diets because we do not consume enough fish.
Omega-3s provide anti-inflammatory benefits and support digestive, cardiovascular, and cognitive health. Not all fatty foods will provide you with these healthful Omega-3s, and adjusting your diet plan to limit artificial and trans fans is key!
Saskatchewan-grown flax seeds are a great source of Omega-3s. High-quality supplements can also help. Blood tests are available through your naturopath to assess your levels of Omega-3.

Focusing on incorporating more whole, nutrient-rich foods into your diet and limiting sugar-laden processed products can make a big difference in how you feel. Get outside when you can to enjoy some exercise, fresh air, and UV rays.
