Healthy Alternatives – Thursdays at 12 noon

Dr. Christine Sauer

About the Show “Healthy Alternatives”

This show showcases all aspects of health and healthcare, from conventional to alternative and everything in-between, including physical, mental, spiritual, employee, social and community health, nutrition and lifestyle.

In this show Dr. Christine wants to not only showcase what all is available in and around Greater Halifax and beyond, but also what these options may do for her listeners own health and wellness. As a German-origin, conventionally trained physician as well as a Naturopath, Nutritionist and a Certified Health Coach she is not biased towards any specific modality or option. In her opinion, every person needs to be their own “specialist , be an informed partner for their healthcare team and make their own decisions regarding their health, considering each person’s unique circumstances. This show wants to empower people to prioritize their health by providing more information about basic health and human sciences as well as available possibilities and options from all sides of the spectrum, with her down-to-earth commonsense approach. – Common Sense and Science make good partners!

Dr. Christine’s motto is: “There is a light at the end of the tunnel!”
