Random Acts of Kindness 2

by Leisa on July 27, 2009

A couple of times on a Sunday night I have watched a program called “Random Acts of Kindness” and thought it is such a wonderful concept for a television show! It is SO much better than the negative violence and propaganda that we normally see on television.  It highlights some of the most beautiful, selfless, compassionate people

The “Stupor-market”

by Leisa on July 25, 2009

Oh how I love this phrase from UK Raw Foodie, Shazzie!

The Twinkie Defense

by Leisa on July 17, 2009

Last night I watched the movie “Milk” starring Sean Penn, and thought it was a brilliant, but sad movie, and extremely well acted. It was towards the end of the movie in the courtroom trial of Dan White who assassinated both San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk; that the “Twinkie Defense” was mentioned.  It was

Adrenal Fatigue & Medical Ignorance

by Leisa on July 13, 2009

Adrenal fatigue or adrenal insufficiency is one of the areas I specialise in as a Naturopath – having experienced severe adrenal issues combined with a thyroid problem myself in the past.
