We all have bad days. We live in a fast-paced world, one that is purely unsympathetic to our personal needs and does not always allow us the rest we deserve. Over time, this grueling lifestyle can ravage one’s health, resulting in a little less energy, vitality and “luster” in our physical appearance than we’d like! Most of us know we want to feel more energetic and have more gusto towards life but are a little uncertain of how to go about it without the use of stimulants and chemicals. As a student of naturopathy and as someone who has struggled personally with many of these common complaints, I have decided to delve a little deeper into many surprise foods and products that may be just what you need to revitalize your body inside and out.

“I’ve been a vegan for 24 years,” Moby, the musician, told me on the phone the other day. “With two lapses. I had yogurt in 1992, and I have to say, it was really good. And then I was at a friend’s restaurant in Portland, Oregon, a few years ago, and they made me some vegan sushi, but they accidentally brought me crab sushi.

A couple’s wedding day is not only an intense one, but also an increasingly rare one. In past generations and societies, it was seldom a question of whether a love bond would last long enough to accompany two people down the aisle, or fail to keep a couple together through thick and thin; a cornerstone of the marital bond. But as marriage rates in North America diminish with each passing year, speculation has arisen from all angles of social and economic study to try and explain why marriage as we knew it just does not seem to be faring as well as it once did.
