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

With childhood obesity levels at an all time high, society has every right to start freaking out about the health of our future generations.

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.

What’s Blocking Your Flow

by Rhianna on May 8, 2014

Just so you don’t get the wrong idea, this blog post isn’t about bowel movements, constipation or anything that might be happening in that area. Not today.

by Rhianna on May 2, 2014

  After receiving a box of natural (and some not so natural) goodies in the mail the other day, I got to thinking about how hard it is to know what the good, natural brands are. Have you ever spent a fortune on a product only to take it home and find out you’ve achieved
