Car Parts For Sale Here?

by Leisa on February 24, 2008

Sorry wrong website.  This is about health, as most of you know. However some Doctors for some reason, know little to nothing about Naturopathy.  Hence the comment from a Dr. one of my patients went to “What would you go to a Naturopath for?  That’s like going to the mechanic for a haircut!” Oh doesn’t

Is Commitment a Dirty Word?

by Leisa on February 15, 2008

A couple of small incidents happened over the last couple of days which have left me pondering over the meaning of the word commitment. The dictionary says that commitment is “the trait of sincere and steadfast fixity of purpose”. I get the feeling though, that a lot of people see the word commitment in a

There’s Nothing Accidental About Murder

by Leisa on February 7, 2008

When one person kills another through a genuine accident or through no fault of their own it is termed manslaughter.  When one person dies at the hands of another person who is knowingly in charge of a lethal weapon, it is murder. And this is what happened to Heath Ledger, murdered by the medical industry

Doctors Drive Me Crazy!

by Leisa on February 4, 2008

I try very hard not to Dr. bash, (ok, I don’t try THAT hard!), but what they do at times certainly does drive me crazy! This area came up again today when I had a consultation with an elderly patient who was suffering from faintness, dizziness upon standing and some mental confusion. After taking a case

The Double Blind Debacle

by Leisa on January 26, 2008

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. Natural medicine, because of it’s holistic quality, can never conform to industry standards because you cannot measure

Guru Gimmicks

by Leisa on January 23, 2008

This follows on somewhat from my “Sleepwalkers” blog, where I talked about how people get trapped into habits and behaviours that may be harmful. Another area that I’d really like to encourage people to examine in their own lives is the common tendency in many people to give away their power to others, and to

Sleepwalkers

by Leisa on January 19, 2008

I often find myself observing people, and time and again I wonder if many of us are aware of the habits and behaviours we participate in, that are doing us harm.  I suspect so many people are “sleepwalking” through life, never taking the time to step back and look at what they are doing and

teen_obesity

Oh yes, you did read correctly.  The genius Australian Medical Association has proposed a plan to provide free lap-band surgery for obese teenagers in Victoria. It is a $40.5 million dollar proposal that will see 3000 operations performed over three years.  Apparently “health groups” have backed the plan, although any “health group” that backs this

Is Natural The Only Way To Go?

by Leisa on January 4, 2008

This is a question that I often ask myself, especially when dealing with people that are often not willing to change what needs to be changed, to allow healing to take place. I think there are many perspectives that can come out of such a question, but the important one for me is “What can

Creating Your Own Reality

by Leisa on January 2, 2008

Still on the theme that my DVD “The Emotional Aspects of Healing” covers, I was sent a beautiful article by William Bloom asking the question “Does Everyone Create Their Own Reality?”  Following the success of “The Secret”, which although it contains some inspiring ideas, seems to give unaware people the impression that they are omnipotent
