Bio

Bryce Wylde, BSc, Nutritionist, Hom.

My passion is in evidence based natural medicine with a bent on a fuctional approach (emphasis on objective laboratory findings to investigate a patients need for an herb, vitamin, antioxidant, or anything else for that matter). As the director of natural medicine at The Centre For Health, an integrative health facility in Canada, I work along side conventional mainstream medicine pratitioners (MD's), a natural medicine team (ND’s and HD’s), and Chiropractors and other physical therapies (DC’s, Massage, Acupuncture, and Physiotherapy).

    Although almost all fruit has a respectable amount of antioxidants, the superheroes are berries and grapes.

    Don’t let the fragile texture and easy spoiling of a berry fool you. In the world of high antioxidants foods, they are at the top of the list. Few fruits have the delightfully delicate...Read More

    ORAC, which stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity, refers to a food's antioxidant value. High-ORAC foods are therapeutic foods, as opposed to simply nutritionally fulfilling foods.
