Is Your Body At War?

by Rhianna on June 16, 2014

Today I woke up with one mean hangover! My eyes felt puffy with big dark bags under them, I woke up heavily and reluctantly, wishing it was Sunday, my head full and fuzzy and I was a generally grumpy little human. Alcohol? What alcohol? Oh no, this isn’t your typical one-drink-too-many hang over. This is

Bali Dreaming

by Rhianna on June 12, 2014

Last night I went to Bali. I awoke in an ornate wooden four poster bed, draped with a lattice of mosquito netting. Rising to slide the craved wooden door inwards, I walked outside and tasted the rich scent of incense on the air.  The grass was dewy damp and glistening like a field of perfect

Winter Is Coming…

by Rhianna on June 11, 2014

Ok please excuse the Game of Thrones, Stark house tagline, but it is appropriate in this case! In the last week we have moved from “Oh it’s a little crisp, I think I’ll lie in the sun for an hour today instead of half an hour”, to “My goodness, where did we store that second

It’s All About The Vibes, Man…

by Rhianna on June 10, 2014

Can you really affect other people just through the thoughts you think? Have you ever found yourself affected by other peoples thoughts or feelings? Have you ever ‘made’ something happen, just through an extreme desire? We really are far more powerful than most people think! An interesting event occurred for me yesterday that highlighted just

With childhood obesity levels at an all time high, society has every right to start freaking out about the health of our future generations. Last week my blog was all about tips to help your children be as healthy as possible. But what the weekend has shown me, is that balance is key, not extremism.

What We Should Be Teaching Our Kids

by Rhianna on May 27, 2014

After attending the premier of Overfed and Undernourished last Wednesday night on the Gold Coast, I have been giving a lot of thought to our up and coming generations. I am only 31 years old, and yet in my lifetime the world has changed a staggering amount. Evolution, synonymous with the words development, advancement, progression

by Rhianna on May 23, 2014

Working a few days in my local Flannerys health food store, highlights products the average shopper is looking for, and last week was all about weight loss! Luckily, the store I work in doesn’t stock the majority of your ‘so-hot-right-now’ rubbish, but we still have plenty of people coming in searching for the next quick

Finding the Time

by Rhianna on May 20, 2014

After a couple of busy weeks at work, unconsciously full weekends and the sun heading to bed by 6pm of an evening, I noticed I have been feeling like each day is just blurring into the next, whizzing past with no real rest in sight. Ever had that feeling? So much to do, so little

Are Supplements FOREVER?

by Rhianna on May 16, 2014

One of the questions I am often asked as a naturopath, is how long to take a supplement for. Our society is one that is used to the idea of having to take things long term. Just think of the oral contraceptive pill, blood pressure medication, cholesterol tablets and so on… Considering only those three

Cholesterol Trouble?

by Rhianna on May 13, 2014

One of the good things about having a partner who is a naturopath, is that I can pinch the occasional health related post from his Facebook wall! I found this post this morning, and thought it explained cholesterol so perfectly that I had to share it with you! Written by Asa Harrington, awesome naturopath and
