The Global Phenomenon of Earthing

by Leisa on February 27, 2013

I first learned about the principles of Earthing from David Wolfe – and it makes so much sense! In nature, we would continually be connected to the earth, we would walk on it, live on it, sleep on it. It is only today with our modern ability to keep us off the ground, that has

I Saw Your Boobs

by Leisa on February 26, 2013

Yesterday I happened to come across a video of a song that was performed at the Academy Awards a day or two ago called “I Saw Your Boobs”. And it made me really angry. You might ask why someone who writes about health, food as medicine, nutrition and emotional healing, wants to write about a song that was

You Are a Flawless Diamond

by Leisa on February 10, 2013

Spontaneous healing and using the power of the mind to combat disease, have always fascinated me. I have a library full of books delving deeply into this phenomenon, and even though there is not one clear-cut solution on any healing path, there are a myriad of techniques to explore on the way.

New Year Resolutions, or Real Life?

by Leisa on January 1, 2013

Here we are, another year flashed by in an instant and my head is left spinning at the speed with which the last year passed by! Is time speeding up, or are we just trying to fit more in? 2012 was a year of challenges – so many of my friends and family were pushed

Surgery is Best for Obesity?

by Leisa on December 14, 2012

Last weekend there was an article published in the Herald Sun, titled “Obesity Conference Told Surgery Better Than Exercise for Obese“, which detailed information and proposals discussed at the National Obesity Conference. The article talked about the suggestion by Professor John Dixon, that severe obesity be classed as a chronic medical condition, requiring drugs and surgery to be treated

Urealistic Optimism

Unrealistic Optimism

by Leisa on November 20, 2012

It was in Bali earlier this year, sitting at dinner with my good friend and colleague Carl Massy, when he shared with me me a statement that described part of my personality to a tee, and made me laugh out loud at how perfect it was. He said that I had the character trait of “unrealistic optimism” – and
