Lyme Disease Prevention

Lyme Disease Prevention

Lyme Disease is prominent especially in Eastern Ontario. This can be a scary and fearful situation for many parents and families. 

How do we keep our children safe? How do we keep ourselves safe? What do ticks look like? How do we remove them?

There are many questions surrounding ticks and we want to ensure that you have the proper information.

Join us Saturday August 27 from 1:00pm to 2:30pm for a Tick Prevention Workshop with Dr. Holly WhiteKnight, Naturopathic Doctor.

Kingston and the surrounding area is one of the high risk zones for Lyme disease in Ontario. Lyme disease can be transmitted from deer ticks to humans through tick bites, and therefore it is important that you and your family are aware of how to avoid tick bites, even if you do not spend lots of time in the outdoors. In this talk you will learn how to identify different types of ticks, how to decrease exposure to ticks and what to do if you find a tick attached to your body.

Holly WhiteKnight is a naturopathic doctor at Kingston Integrated Healthcare and has a new home based practice in Sydenham. Holly enjoys helping patients from the journey of pre-conception to children’s health and beyond as she brings much wisdom from her various life experiences.

Wool, Glorious Wool!

Do you think of wool as itchy, hard to clean, and only for the coldest of winter days? We used to too. Luckily we've come to learn a lot about wool over the years, and we now know that there's more to the wool story. Like many other natural materials, how the wool is processed and what breed of sheep it comes from can be a game changer in terms of the final product.
