The Global Phenomenon of Earthing

by Leisa on February 27, 2013

I first learned about the principles of Earthing from David Wolfe – and it makes so much sense! In nature, we would continually be connected to the earth, we would walk on it, live on it, sleep on it. It is only today with our modern ability to keep us off the ground, that has

I Saw Your Boobs

by Leisa on February 26, 2013

Yesterday I happened to come across a video of a song that was performed at the Academy Awards a day or two ago called “I Saw Your Boobs”. And it made me really angry. You might ask why someone who writes about health, food as medicine, nutrition and emotional healing, wants to write about a song that was

I just wanted to pass on some information on a great event that is happening in Sydney on the 10th of March.  It is called the Happiness Class and is run by Carl Massy, author of The Guidebook to Happiness, and someone who I know personally and respect. Carl not only knows the science of

Calcium: Doubles Heart Disease Risk

by Leisa on February 14, 2013

Yesterday, on a mainstream news website, came this story “Women with high levels of calcium are at twice the risk of dying from heart disease“, a fact that naturopath’s have known for quite some time, but has been soundly ignored by medical professionals and the media. How often do we hear of a woman being

Deadly, Legal Addictions

by Rhianna on February 13, 2013

The recent article about a 30 year old mother whose death was caused by too much Coca-Cola saddens me on so many levels. It is a tragedy for a woman in the prime of her life to leave behind eight children and a husband for any reason. It is disgusting that Coca-Cola is not admitting

You Are a Flawless Diamond

by Leisa on February 10, 2013

Spontaneous healing and using the power of the mind to combat disease, have always fascinated me. I have a library full of books delving deeply into this phenomenon, and even though there is not one clear-cut solution on any healing path, there are a myriad of techniques to explore on the way. I was revisiting some of

Are You In Oestrogen Overload?

by Leisa on February 7, 2013

Many women (and some men) today are suffering from a little known and poorly understood condition called oestrogen dominance, that can, if not discovered and corrected, have disastrous health consequences. We are mainly familiar with oestrogen as primarily a female hormone, produced by the ovaries, and being responsible for female sexual development and characteristics. In

Don’t Eat on the Run!

by Leisa on February 2, 2013

Stress is a very common complaint today, with many of us feeling over-worked, under pressure and without enough hours in the day to get everything done.  Besides the problems we often associate with stress, such as tension and anxiety, insomnia and headaches – the digestive system is one that is badly affected by stress. Many people
