Raising Health® Blog

As the year comes to a close, we thought it would be fun, and educational, to look back at all of our blog posts from 2017, to see what topics resonated the most with our followers. And the answer was pretty definitive. We planned to talk about our top 3 blogs, but the fact is that 4 of our top 5 blogs of the year were all largely on the same topic. And that topic is specialty medications.


Each year the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) publishes the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Facts  which presents factual information about health insurance in Canada.


You wake up sneezing, coughing, feel achy and can’t get out of bed—how do you know whether you have a cold or the dreaded flu? It can be hard to tell them apart because of the overlap of symptoms; however, understanding the differences can help you choose the best treatment options.


As we mark Diabetes Awareness Month in November, it is perhaps good to start with a reality check. The fact is that too many Canadians are already very aware of diabetes, either because they are living with it, or know at least one friend or family member who is.


With all the medical advances we’ve seen in recent years, it’s easy to forget sometimes that ultimately we are responsible for our own health, and that our healthcare providers are there to guide us, but may not know our circumstances as well as we do.
