Overdosing on Raw Cacao Coconut Slice!

by Leisa on November 26, 2009

This was funny! Even though I eat what most would call a pretty perfect diet – I do have a sweet tooth and at times can be a little unconscious about the amount of yummy raw food that I eat.  The Raw Cacao Coconut Slice is the one example where my normal restraint goes out

Are You Healthy Enough to Live Life?

by Leisa on November 24, 2009

This was a question that came up on a beautiful day that my partner William and I spent on a yacht sailing Moreton Bay and enjoying some adventure activities. It was magnificent weather – the sun was shining, a warm breeze was blowing and there were even a few dolphins splashing about the bay.  It

Oh My Goodness, I Have a Disease!

by Leisa on August 25, 2009

From The Daily Mail UK “An obsession with eating healthily could in fact be bad for your health, scientists warn. Those who deny themselves entire food groups or worry too much about the ‘purity’ of their meals are risking their mental and physical wellbeing.

Random Acts of Kindness 2

by Leisa on July 27, 2009

A couple of times on a Sunday night I have watched a program called “Random Acts of Kindness” and thought it is such a wonderful concept for a television show! It is SO much better than the negative violence and propaganda that we normally see on television.  It highlights some of the most beautiful, selfless, compassionate people

Taking the Time for Real Rest

by Leisa on July 2, 2009

One of the points that Dr. Fred Bisci emphasised during his lectures in Australia, was the importance of rest when it comes to healing.  He talked about how during water fasting, one should lay down with closed eyes as much as possible, to conserve energy and retain that energy within for healing purposes.

Healing Without Medication

by Leisa on June 16, 2009

My partner William and I have a very different view on healing and what the body is capable of; as compared to most people.  Even those with an interest in, and some knowledge of natural healing, rarely trust the process of healing which isn’t always pleasant. As an example, just last week William had an abscess

My First Durian Experience!

by Leisa on May 28, 2009

Well, I had heard a lot about these mysterious fruits – all the stories about how bad they smelled, and how addictive they were – so when I had the opportunity to try them for myself – I jumped at the chance! It was driving home from hiking in Springbrook National Park with Dr. Fred

The Delightful Dr. Fred

by Leisa on May 26, 2009

This past week I was fortunate enough to have hosted Dr. Fred Bisci and his friend and promoter Rory, on the Gold Coast leg of their national tour.  And what a privilege it has been! For the first couple of days though, the Gold Coast turned on the worst weather imaginable – with South East QLD
