Yesterday morning we had the television on at home, whilst we were pottering around the kitchen, and a segment came up that grabbed my attention. The topic was on a proposal being submitted to the government, promoting a new star-based nutrional labelling system for food. The idea behind the new proposal, was that a star-based system would enable consumers

Buddha Quotation

Accepting The Grand Design

by Rhianna on July 24, 2013

Hanging on my wall I have a quote by Buddha. It goes something along the lines of “In the end, what matters most is: How well did you love? How well did you live? How well did you learn to let go?” I loved this quote enough to buy it and hang it on my wall, but I

Spiritual Madness

by Leisa on July 11, 2013

Just recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Caroline Myss, and have been really enjoying delving into the concepts of spirituality that she discusses. One of her talks is entitled “Spiritual Madness” and it has deeply resonated with me. It was 25 years ago, when I was in my teens, that I started on

Is Naturopathy Unscientific?

by Leisa on July 10, 2013

We often hear loud protests from the medical community that natural medicine is “unscientific” because many nutrients, herbs, foods and therapies have not undergone the Gold Standard for the scientific industry – the double blind placebo controlled trial.

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

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
