“Health” Food Misconceptions…

by Leisa on November 7, 2008

A few days ago I was at a dinner with some lovely people who had an interest in health.  I had only just met them, so they didn’t really know what I do, or that I have studied food, nutrition and health for years. They bought a container of “butter” out for us to have with

Iodine and White Bread

by Leisa on November 5, 2008

Another source of inspiration for a blog post came again from a Sunday newspaper – honestly I’m going to have to start buying those things purely for the entertainment value! Last weekend there was a story about how many Australians are deficient in iodine, and how nutritionists are advising the government to recommend the addition of

by Leisa on October 29, 2008

In this article from Natural News, Mike Adams talks about superfoods for building healthy skin. http://www.naturalnews.com/024654.html Skin tone and texture is so much more than what is put on the surface of it.  It really does come from within and from my experience, lots of raw green juices, green smoothies, good quality raw fats and

Juicing, Fasting and Feelings

by Leisa on October 25, 2008

I have always found the correlations between detoxing the body and detoxing the mind to be a fascinating insight into human nature. In my lectures when I worked at Hippocrates Health Centre, I always talked to people how when they are juice fasting and detoxing, that quite often emotions and feelings will come up to

H is for Honey

by Leisa on October 18, 2008

Honey has earned a bit of a bad rap over the years as being just as bad for us as “pure sugar”.  But all is not as it seems in the world of honey…. There is quite a lot of difference between the honey you find on the supermarket store shelf and pure “Raw Honey” that

The Healing of My Thyroid

by Leisa on October 16, 2008

As many of you know I have struggled with thyroid issues for many years, and have been taking natural thyroid replacement for some time. In the past when I have tried to wean off the thyroid support, I have become very ill – that is until recently. Putting together my own retreats has been a

by Leisa on October 10, 2008

Wow, another busy couple of weeks that saw me heading to Melbourne to do some lectures for ARL Pathology – the company that I use for saliva and stool testing analysis – and last weekend I spent two full days being introduced to German New Medicine. I have had an interest in German New Medicine for a while

The Supplement Myth

by Leisa on September 6, 2008

I get asked a lot about supplements, which ones are the best, what do I take every day, and how to know which ones you need. I was once a total supplement junkie – I had 40 bottles of different tablets and capsules on my bench top, and every morning I would take handfuls of

Cell Phone Dangers

by Leisa on August 27, 2008

I personally haven’t done a great deal of research on the dangers of mobile phones, but I am quite aware that there are potential problems, so I try not to use mine unless I have to. On Dr. Mercola’s site, www.mercola.com he had a good article on those dangers, and a video from an Australian

Stress and Health

by Leisa on August 13, 2008

I know I keep harping on about the relationship between our health, our emotions and stress levels, but it’s a point that has really hit home to me lately because I’ve been in the middle of experiencing it. There’s nothing like learning something really well by going through it yourself, and because I had a
