One of the main reasons I’m slowing down and taking some time out this year, is not just to finish my book, but it is to create the space to allow time for me to heal and to take my health to another level. It is quite amazing how much time it really does take

Who Is In Your Health Care Circle?

Who takes care of your health? Are you a Dr Google kind of person? Do you have one practitioner that you see for your primary health care? Or do you have a whole range of healthcare practitioners you call on when needed? Something that always surprises people and my patients is that fact that I

Leisa’s Diary #3; Life Values

by Leisa on January 29, 2014

Following on from my last diary entry about busyness, another concept that I’ve been playing with, is about values and how our life is a reflection of that which we value the most. One of the things that I am factoring into my ‘slower’ days, is the listening to podcasts from my favourite speakers – and

by Leisa on January 21, 2014

Busyness. It can be such a loaded word, and it’s one that I am currently pondering. How did this word and what it stands for, came to be such a big part of my life? I look back and realise that I wasn’t always ‘busy’. Once upon a time I had balance in my life.

A new year is the prefect time for new beginnings! And we have a few new beginnings going on ourselves at Embracing Health for 2014.

Over the next few months I’ll be using my blog to keep a bit of a diary to record what is happening with me, as I make some big changes to my life and move in a somewhat new direction. Over the past decade I’ve met thousands of people through my work at Hippocrates Health

Living in Gratitude

by Leisa on August 7, 2013

Feeling grateful is such an empowering emotion, yet quite often it is one that doesn’t always come to mind naturally, unless we take the time to sit down and think about what we are grateful for. When we actually do that, we can find hundreds of things to be grateful for, and suddenly our seemingly

Tahini Ball Recipe

by Leisa on July 23, 2013

This is an old faithful tahini ball recipe that I’ve just revisited after not making them for quite a long time! These are a great substitute when you are having a chocolate craving – but I always use a mix of half raw cacao powder and half organic carob powder to balance them out so
