Vitamin D for Immune Support By Dr. Julie Mardian, ND Written September 22, 2020 Over the last few months, there have been numerous studies showing a strong correlation between vitamin D levels and COVID-19 outcomes. Vitamin D deficiency is an issue for Canadians especially as the days get shorter and we spend more time indoors. Statistics Canada reports that up to 40% of Canadians have inadequate levels of vitamin D during the winter months. With this brief article, I want to provide a current update  about the latest information linking low levels of vitamin D and health outcomes for COVID-19 patients, along with highlighting  the importance now for people to actively increase vitamin D levels with diet and supplementation for themselves and their children and family members.

Bright Line Eating

The healthy diet endorsed by Dr. Julie Mardian, ND  Since January 2020,  I have been promoting this cookbook for patients struggling with food addiction, weight gain, food cravings and poor eating habits. This cookbook provides simple, back-to-basic recipes and guidelines for a whole-foods diet.  It can be modified for anyone on a gluten-free/dairy-free or plant based diet too. Bright Line Eating  can be a lifeline for people who need a concrete plan to deal with food addiction - especially addiction to flour and sugar products.

Shop online: shop.mnm.ca The problem with most of the online stores is they sell pretty well anything. There is no accountability to make sure the supplements are actually healthy for you. The shop.mnm.ca online store is completely different. The items in our store are the same ones prescribed to our patients, they meet the high criteria set by our Doctors. If you don't see a company then chances are they have not been approved by our team of experts. We currently only approve a handful of companies who have shown integrity throughout the sourcing and manufacturing process. Other online stores also hide their address, or use email forms, to reduce your ability to contact a live representative. At MNM we put our terms, address, phone number, and contact information on all pages of the website. We have live customer service representatives and a supervisor standing by to answer your questions during business hours. Trust, Honesty and Transparency throughout your purchase process. See
