I am Enough

A mantra is (originally in Hinduism or Buddhism) a word, statement, slogan or sound used repetitiously to aid in concentration and meditation. Our brain, like computer hardware, can be programmed with our thoughts. Mantras are like codes for the software of our brains.

Interview with Geha Gonthier

Wellness on Whyte will be celebrating their 9 year anniversary on March 6th, 2021. I sat down to chat with Geha Gonthier, founder and owner of WoW to discuss the evolution of these past 9 years in business, her background in communal living, and what inspires the vision behind the work that she does today.

Self Care from the Outside In

How much water do you drink? Do you have a skin care routine? What products do you use? How is your stress level?
These are some questions I might ask you at the beginning of an aesthetics appointment. I’m not looking for “right” answers; just the answers. This is to help identify any problems so I can help you find solutions.

Immunity: A blog by Dr. Aziz Merchant BHMS, MDHOM

Topic of Immunity may have never been as pertinent to the our modern times than the current pandemic. While governments are scrambling to dole out a vaccine that will bypass all safety standards, libertarian groups are calling this all a hoax and screaming deeper conspiracy. Where does one find sanity and security? The deaths around us are real.

I Am Calm

We are in the final quarter of 2020, and at many stages of this year, it has felt as though finding calm is a revolutionary act. With recent world affairs bringing us together globally, there’s also been profound polarization felt across the earth. We’ve witnessed circumstances that have incited fear, tension, and vulnerability. We’ve felt the ache of worrying for our loved ones. We’ve met the pain of loss, and touched uncertainty with our own hands.

I Am Immune: The Golden Path to Skin Health: Facial

It’s not a new trend! In China during the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 AD), Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture was performed in the Royal Palace on the Empress, Emperor and Concubines. It is an ancient practice that revitalizes the qi (energy) and blood flow in the body and face, rejuvenating the skin and promoting longevity.

2020 has undoubtedly been an uphill battle filled with obstacles and uncertainty.

As if people didn’t already have enough to worry about in their lives, adding a global pandemic into the mix is a sure-fire way to turn even the sanest person into a dizzying worry wort. So what are the pros and cons of worrying? Is there such a thing as a healthy amount of worry? Or can too much worrying actually make you sick?

I Am Balanced: The Golden Path to Skin Health

Our skin is a mirror that reflects and tells the story of our holistic health, it is the body’s largest organ that alerts us and protects us from harm externally and internally.

Ayurvedic Daily Routine

Ayurveda is an eternal science, something that has no beginning or end. It not only helps you to understand the value of life, but it also provides timeless direction that encourages one to live life in the most harmonious way possible.

Ayurveda is an ancient wisdom that is meant to be used everyday, it’s not something you look for only when you need it. It’s very practical and accessible because its foundation is based in maintenance of good health and prevention of disease.

I am at Ease

Here at Wellness on Whyte our monthly mantra, “I am at Ease”, seems to be relevant to the world now more than ever. The intensity of emotions being experienced world wide is essentially a magnifying glass on the emotional fluctuation we all deal with on a daily level.

Being at ease: What does it mean to you?

Being at ease? What does it mean to you? It seems simple, doesn’t it? Yet, how can we achieve this wonderful feeling?

I believe that feeling at ease is a blend of awareness and let go. We must be aware of our thoughts, feelings and actions and how we contribute to our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our home, not our physical home but our body, our soul and the Earth where we all live.

Running on Ice: Learning to trust in a time of uncertainty

Hi everyone, I trust you are well and finding creative ways to deal with our new way of being. I’m sure if you’re like me, this is new and a lot of things are different. I’m home with my family, our kids aren’t going to school, I can’t just run out to the grocery store and pick up apples. It is all really quite different and truth be told a bit uncertain -we have no known path through this. And for me, that’s exciting. It’s like a wintery icy sidewalk that we have to walk across to get where we’re going. And if you live in Canada, you all know what I’m talking about.

To Coffee or Not to Coffee? The Question is, does it Make You Feel at Ease?

I just love a strong-tasting, good-quality, black coffee. Sadly, however, it does not love me! There are pros and cons to every kind of food and drink and coffee’s benefits and downfalls are quite polarized in that is can be so good for your or so detrimental, depending on the individual.

I Am Enough: A Note on COVID-19 From our Very Own Dr. Aziz Merchant

For me, I am what I believe. Being Enough gives me a sense of Abundance, a solace in satisfaction. And what gives me this sense is knowing that I belong to a community- a community that is under threat from a historic pandemic. In situations of pandemic, the goal is to protect the part of our population that is most vulnerable. We need to look after our elderly population. We have to limit and stop the spread of this disease. We have to limit and stop the spread of misinformation on social media and gravitate to official authorities.

I AM HAPPY

The truth is, throughout my life I have had a tenuous relationship with the concept of happiness. From being described as “such a happy girl” as a young child, to chasing after happiness, to feeling as if I would never know what it meant to feel happiness I’ve run the gamut on the complex experience of happiness.

I AM HAPPY by Aziz Merchant

Is happiness mere absence of sadness? Is happiness a feeling we are all entitled to due to some special karmic privilege? Quite often in my practice have I asked my patients if they were happy with their lives, and this question would provoke a thoughtful introspection. Some ponder over the true meaning of happiness, some try to grasp if what they perceive as happiness is really what it is, or not.
