Apr 28, 2020

Dr. Sarah Vadeboncoeur and Dr. Salna Smith join us for this week’s episode. They are both rebel tribe facilitators in their respective cities. Dr. Sarah Vadeboncoeur is a naturopathic doctor and a clinic director in Ottawa, Ontario. Her practice is almost exclusively centered on supporting women with thyroid function and hormonal health. Dr. Salna Smith is a Naturopathic Doctor whose mission is to take her patients from overwhelmed and exhausted to calm, confident, and re-energized – for good. Dr. Salna firmly believes we all deserve to have sustainable energy so we can accomplish our priorities with ease.

In this episode, we talk all about Rebel Tribe. We discuss Dr. Sarah and Dr. Salna’s observations on women in their programs, on the surprising takeaways they have gotten from running their own Rebel Tribes, and the importance of Rebel Tribes in the women’s healthcare community. We also chat about how useful it is to tap into your own intuition when it comes to making the changes your body needs.

Have you ever heard of IV Vitamin Therapy? This is one of the treatments that are offered at the Poppy Clinic, you can receive it as a stand-alone treatment or as part of your holistic health care. IV stands for Intravenous. It is a 40-minute session during which you are administered a customized blend of vitamins intravenously, right into your bloodstream. The advantage of getting your vitamins this way is that the digestive tract is bypassed in order for you to absorb 100% of what you are getting, you are receiving the vitamins directly, and are able to get much higher doses of the vitamins than you would ever be able to get otherwise.


Did you know that 1 of 3 people have a digestive compromise? This means that even if you are eating a great diet or taking all of your vitamins, you might not actually be digesting and absorbing everything. IV Vitamin Therapy is the treatment that helps you absorb 100% of vitamins into your system.


Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy:

- Boost your immune system

- Heal from chronic disease

- Fight off infections

- Boost your mood

- Improve sleep quality

- Calm your nervous system

- Health optimization

- Prevention of disease

- Anti-aging and collagen production boost


Reach out to the Poppy Clinic! You don’t need a referral. We look forward to meeting you very soon!
