Sh*t My Naturopath Says

January 02, 2015 2 min read

I’ve recently started seeing a naturopath for my crypt-keeper-esque skin and she is one of the cutest, funniest people I’ve ever met. She’s so passionate about what she does that she gets very worked up. She’s also very French, and I’m not sure if it’s the accent/occasional word mix-ups that make what she says so hilarious, but there are definitely some real keepers from her list of aphorisms. You’re a very pretty girl, but your insides are not very pretty: Okay, this one she actually only said once, but it was in our very first meeting and she had just read through my health survey (which was incredibly thorough), and studying my eyes (which is a real thing called iridology – kind of like reflexology but with your eyes). BASICALLY, she gleaned everything that was wrong with my inner workings, and this was her great way to break it to me. You need to be able to pronounce all the ingredients: She keeps a basket of food packaging in her office, which she uses to illustrate her point. It’s actually pretty effective when you see Dempster’s ingredients vs. another healthier alternative. Just a half hour session with her and you’ll want to grow your own vegetables, buy a chicken coop, and learn to churn your own butter. naturopath dempsters   naturopth silver hill Her spring cleaning analogy: She has very strong opinions about colon cleanse/detox products. How she put it, was that it’s fine to do a spring cleaning, but then you don’t do the dishes, you don’t clean the washrooms, you don’t vacuum or dust all year long? You wouldn’t do this with your house so you shouldn’t do it with your body, you should be maintaining your internal health on a regular basis rather than doing a big cleanse of your system. That don’t impress-a me much. You know? I’m like Shania: This one was in reference to people boasting about their health products. She gets really animated about people thinking that just because something is “organic” or “gluten-free” it automatically makes that product healthy. Again, she’s BIG on reading ingredients and understanding what you’re putting into your body. Also, she said this with a sassy head shake, and it’s been years since I’ve heard a good Shania Twain reference. naturopathshaniatwain

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
