sincerity…created to inspire, impact & nourish well being

                                A little sincerity…
Seven years ago I jumped out the corporate advertising environment as I found myself in an
uninspiring negative routine.   A friend referred me to a Holistic therapist triggering the next
“phase” of my life. Soon into my exploration of Holistic options, the inspiration & awareness’
that surfaced, became a naturally fueled passion. Though through-out my exploration &
experimentation, I found myself connected with the message but not the environment (to
which I chuckled as before         I connected with the modern environment but not the

I searched for a “place” where I could to get a sense that is a texture of “well being”. A
place to engage body, mind & soul interests within the urban landscape. Though I had
found tools inspiring moments of clarity, peacefulness, & charms, I was overwhelmed with the
options.   I found the holistic community’s offerings simple yet disorganized, effective yet
unreachable ….

Alas the sincerity vision was born. A mindful contemporary “place” for individuals choosing
to explore & integrate ancient techniques & mindful actions into their “modern” landscape.
With moments of substance, fine fair, peaceful vibes & sincere tools enabling shifts in one’s
contemporary lifestyle. The urban spiritualist is then defined as…An individual who embraces
urban living & applies “alternative” approaches for personal well being into their current life

So, thank you for engaging & exploring alternatives with us. Our efforts aspire to trigger
moments of growth & awareness for oneself, others & our planet.

              With sincerity

Rawlicious Foodies: Robin, Maria, Tracy & Angus

unavailable). Please note everything is prepared with mindfulness & love!

FOOD 101

Living & Raw Foods
In general, the act of heating food over 116 degrees F destroys enzymes in food. All cooked food is
devoid of enzymes. Living & Raw foods maintain their level of enzymes which assist in the digestion of
foods. They are known to be the "Life-Force" & or "energy" of food. From the dictionary: Noun: Any of
the various complex organic substances, as pepsin originating from living cells and capable of
producing certain chemical changes in organic substances by catalytic action, as in digestion.
Living & Raw Foodists believe in eating only an UNCOOKED, UNHEATED, UNPROCESSED & ORGANIC
plant based diet.

Superfoods: These include foods that have many unique properties. For example, the goji berry (a
superfood) is a source of complete protein, immune-stimulating polysaccharides, liver-cleansing
betaine, anti-aging sesquiterpenes, antioxidants, over 20 trace minerals, & much, much more.
Compare this to a normal food, such as celery.

Superherbs: These include herbs that have super tonic & adaptogenic properties as well as many
other unique gifts. For example, reishi mushroom (a superherb) helps support a healthy immune
system, heart, lungs, kidneys, as well as assisting with rejuvenating brain & connective tissue.

Naturalfoods: Foods in their natural state, unprocessed, unrefined(Whole grains, fruits, vegetables,

Wholefoods: Food hasn't been cut or separated (an apple before it becomes apple pie)

Live: Still contains live enzymes as opposed to overcooked or frozen foods

Vegetarians & Vegans: Only eating a plant based diet.

                              HOLISTIC THERAPIES DEFINED
sincerity offers insights from the variety of “alternative” options. Focusing on the individual needs &
interests, we believe “alternative” therapies benefit all individuals. Our approach allows individuals to
connect & resonate with the therapist before committing financially, physically & spiritually. Should you
be interested in engaging with a therapist of the following modalities, simply set-up a private session
with Silvina Etchegoyen @ 647.504.4301.

Holistic medicine is a broadly descriptive term for a healing philosophy that views a patient as a whole
person, not as just a disease or a collection of symptoms. In the course of treatment, holistic medical
practitioners may address emotional and spiritual dimensions as well as the nutritional, environmental &
lifestyle factors that may contribute to an illness. Many holistic practitioners combine conventional forms
of treatment with natural or alternative treatments.

Promotes healing by balancing the body’s energy field. Can include acupuncture, homeopathy,
flower essences, sound & color healing, crystals, gems, aromatherapy, & energy-based bodywork
(Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Polarity Therapy).

Applying essential oils from flowers, trees, roots, herbs, berries & fruits, to treat emotional disorders such
as stress & anxiety as well as a wide range of other ailments.         Aromatherapy may be applied to
promote physical, mental & emotional wellness. Oils are either massaged into the skin in diluted form,
inhaled, placed in baths, or applied on & around the body. Aromatherapy is often used in conjunction
with other holistic approaches.

Nutrients are the natural chemicals found in foods, & are utilized by the body to maintain health &
combat illness. If a deficiency of nutrients contributes to the causes of disease, then it stands to reason
that an optimal level of nutrients contributes to wellness. Foods impact not only our physical body but
our emotional tendencies. This approach teaches which foods to consume or avoid during a a variety
of energetic levels & physical symptoms.        The use of herbs & spices (herbal medicines at their most
everyday level) will bring out the best in ones food, making eating a pleasure & impacting your body

***The evenings participating therapists offer certified knowledge & techniques from such modalities.
