Hello everybody, Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while, I've been at a bit of a lull in terms of my research as I am waiting for some survey results to come in.

First of all, I would like to say thank you to everyone who sent me information and links last post. They really helped me go into the right direction. However, the war between Modern North American Medicine (Which I am defining as whatever your GP would recommend) and Naturopathy (Specifically traditional medicine and plant usage for one's well being) can be a messy battlefield. Naturopathy articles themselves can often be very questionable..., I've created a chart to help me stay...Read More...

This movie explores the impact that technology and screens have on teenagers. It was filled with lots of interesting information about how much kids and teenagers use screens, as well as how technology effects them, which is what I will be talking about in my next post. One of the things that stood out to me in the movie was...Read More...
