M is for Melons

by Leisa on April 28, 2009

Melons are a wonderful fruit to enjoy regularly, especially when they are in season and nice and ripe and juicy! In correct food combining melons should be eaten by themselves and not combined with any other fruits or foods.  They are best eaten on an empty stomach and make a great start to the day

Making Sense of “Swine Flu”

by Leisa on April 26, 2009

I’ve been watching with interest the scare campaigns heating up on television about the swine flu – and I think we need to look beyond the hype and decide for ourselves what is really going on. Vaccination and medication are being pushed as the treatments of choice – yet neither of these options have been

The Blueberry Abomination

by Leisa on April 24, 2009

As most of you would have read in previous posts, I sadly confess to being a regular watcher of “The Biggest Loser”. Even though I cringe at some of the advice given, I can’t help but enjoy watching the transformation of these people, inside and out, as they progress through the show. However last night

Is it Good or Is it Bad?

by Leisa on April 22, 2009

This week I’ve had a great opportunity to practice what I preach! In my DVD lecture “The Emotional Aspects of Healing”  I talk about value judgements and how we label situations as “good” or “bad” and then feel accordingly – even though we often don’t know where the bigger picture is leading us and the

Colonics on Mainstream TV!

by Leisa on April 20, 2009

I was flicking through the TV channels one night, and saw a show where they were helping people to “look 10 years younger in 10 days”. Totally mindless viewing of course – but I couldn’t believe what I saw on there! Along with the botox treatments, dermal fillers, eye-lifts, exercise, hair do’s and tons of

Comparing Ourselves To Others

by Leisa on April 18, 2009

Hhmm.  This is a difficult subject for me.  In the past I spent a lot of time comparing myself to others and felt bad because I just didn’t measure up.  Which led to doing a lot of personal growth work and over time I developed a much more healthy self-esteem and sense of self. Just

You’re Not Lazy – It’s Your Thyroid!

by Leisa on April 16, 2009

One of the saddest things I hear – and I hear it often – is the way people describe themselves to me in clinic when I ask about their lifestyle habits – sleep, exercise and ability to get things done. You wouldn’t believe how many times I hear – “Oh, to be honest, I’m really lazy.

Are You a “Righteous” Raw Foodie?

by Leisa on April 14, 2009

Every now and then I come across someone who uses the way they eat and live, to assert their superiority over others – and is never nice to witness. Recently I was reading a raw food blog where one of the people posting wrote some pretty harsh criticism of Victoria Boutenko (Green For Life) for being overweight and

The Magician’s Way Seminar

by Leisa on April 12, 2009

In March, My partner and I and I spent a weekend at a seminar training called “Master Your Destiny” with William Whitecloud, the author of the book “The Magician’s Way“. I really enjoyed the book and thought there were some quite profound teachings contained within it, and when I saw that a weekend training was

Raw For 900 Days!

by Leisa on April 10, 2009

While I was over in Perth last weekend, I caught up with some friends of mine, John Wood and his wife Ronnie.  They were generous enough to have me over for a flying visit for dinner, and they made me the most fantastic four course raw gourmet meal! John is a real inspiration.  Three years
