Michael Jackson – Death by Medicine

by Leisa on June 26, 2009

I was so sad this week to learn of the death of Michael Jackson at just 50 years of age.  Even though I haven’t followed his career or music for many years – at the height of his success in the eighties, I was a teenager and a HUGE Michael Jackson fan. I had posters of him

What are Orbs?

by Leisa on June 24, 2009

Has anyone else had those funny little round balls of light show up in their photographs? I have been noticing these little anomalies showing up at different times, and of course put it down to dust, a trick of the light, the flash, or some other camera issue – however I have had a few photo’s

10 Fact You Should Know About Magnesium

by Leisa on June 22, 2009

Magnesium is one of those beautiful healing minerals that is largely ignored by the medical profession, but is absolutely essential to good health.  Luckily for us, magnesium is found in plentiful quantities in a raw food diet – especially in green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, some fruits, avocados and of course raw cacao powder!

Healing Without Medication

by Leisa on June 16, 2009

My partner William and I have a very different view on healing and what the body is capable of; as compared to most people.  Even those with an interest in, and some knowledge of natural healing, rarely trust the process of healing which isn’t always pleasant. As an example, just last week William had an abscess

DNA is Not Destiny

by Leisa on June 12, 2009

I love the field of epigenetics – it sounds complicated – but it is the field of study looking at changes of gene expression that occur without the underlying DNA changing. Today’s catch-cry for absolving ourselves from responsibility for our illnesses is “It’s genetic – I have a genetic predisposition to X disease – so

The Importance of Iodine

by Leisa on June 10, 2009

It is funny how things happen in synchronicity.  I was just finishing off the main article for my Membership Magazine called “The Importance of Iodine” where I have written a huge expose about the conditions of iodine deficiency and the totally inadequate recommendations given to us about how much iodine to supplement with.  It’s a

Overcoming the Food Imprint

by Leisa on June 8, 2009

A little while ago I watched a documentary by Valya Boutenko called “Overcoming the Food Imprint – the Origin of Our Cravings” and was very impressed with what she has put together. Asking questions such as “How can we transform destructive eating patterns and become free of compulsive eating?” and “What can be done to
