Power Up “The Secret”!

by Leisa on December 15, 2007

This is one of the most fun tools that I’ve ever used to power up my visualisation and manifesting skills.  I grew up with books like “Creative Visualisation” and have always set goals and done up the old fashioned storyboards where you paste pictures of things to represent your goals – such as places you

Join In The Action!

by Leisa on December 13, 2007

Further to my post a few days ago about needing to fight the government plan to fluoridate the water in QLD, there is legal action being mounted by the QAWF (Queenslander’s Against Water Fluoridation Inc.). They are undertaking an enormous challenge to protect the public from mass medication by a known toxic substance, and they

Did Your Dr. Miss This?

by Leisa on December 10, 2007

Whenever I have a person come in to my clinic complaining of fatigue, one mineral deficiency often comes to mind -the commonly known but much neglected Iron. Iron levels are of prime importance for many reasons. • For the formation of Haemoglobin, the oxygen carrying part of our red blood cells • For the formation of Myoglobin,

We Need To Fight This!

by Leisa on December 8, 2007

The mass medication of Queenslander’s by toxic Sodium Fluoride has again come under the spotlight due to the QLD Premier Anna Bligh’s push for this industrial waste product to be added to our water supply. A radio advertising campaign is underway to assure the public that the government is introducing this to save our children’s

100% Raw or Not?

by Leisa on December 4, 2007

One subject that is often discussed at Hippocrates – a completely raw, vegan, living foods retreat, is whether 100% raw is the ultimate diet. Now I have trouble sticking to rules of any kind – not that I go deliberately out of my way to break rules, but I do believe that any intelligent, conscious

Five Aspects of Health

by Leisa on November 30, 2007

Often I see at Hippocrates Health Centre, people who are so focused on their physical health, that they have let all the other areas in their life slide as they pursue the ultimate goal of a fit health body due to a perfect diet. But good health is more than just a lot of raw

What milk?

by Leisa on November 15, 2007

I often get asked by people what type of milk they should use in their smoothies or as a milk replacement in their diet.  There are so many choices for people nowadays – the plethora of different types of cow’s milk – as well as goat’s milk, oat milk, rice milk, soy milk, almond milk,

Health Freedom

by Leisa on November 11, 2007

Just this week a story came through talking about the health freedoms that New Zealander’s currently enjoy, that have been destroyed in other countries. It is no exaggeration that our health freedoms and the availability of vitamins, minerals and herbs in the doses that may be needed for optimal health, are under a serious threat.

Pink Ribbon Propaganda

by Leisa on September 16, 2007

I try very hard to stay away from mainstream media. When I accidently overhear popular radio or catch a few minutes of morning television, I find the general tone of it incredibly patronising to my intelligence, and it seems to cater for an audience that don’t want to think for themselves and enjoy being deliberately

Here I will be sharing insights on being a Naturopath in a medicalised world, my thoughts, comments and stories about health; recipes; latest research; books I’ve read and many more health related topics.  I can get quite opinionated so what you read here won’t always be politically correct! Who am I?  I am the Naturopath
