The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation

by Leisa on December 26, 2007

I recently came across one of David Wolfe’s pet projects.  Those of you who have researched raw food would be familiar with David.  He has written the books Naked Chocolate, Eating for Beauty and the Sun Food Diet Success system; and is something of a guru in the raw food movement. This project though, is one that

The Best Christmas Pie Ever!

by Leisa on December 21, 2007

This recipe comes from Alissa Cohen and is found in her fantastic book “Living on Live Food”; it is just perfect for the holiday season! Many people think that living healthfully on raw food means that you have to go without flavour and enjoyment – but this recipe proves how good raw food can taste!  It’s

Further to my post a few days ago regarding low iron levels, one of the factors that I often find in my low iron patients is a digestive disorder where the levels of stomach acid are too low for good mineral absorption. Many minerals need a certain level of pH in the stomach for them

What Does A Naturopath Do On Holidays??

by Leisa on December 16, 2007

For most people a holiday means lots of reckless self-indulgence, eating rich food and drinking lots of alcohol – but my most recent holiday didn’t involve any of that at all. Yes, my family and friends think I’m a bit strange (!), but my partner William (who is as health conscious as I am) and

Power Up “The Secret”!

by Leisa on December 15, 2007

This is one of the most fun tools that I’ve ever used to power up my visualisation and manifesting skills.  I grew up with books like “Creative Visualisation” and have always set goals and done up the old fashioned storyboards where you paste pictures of things to represent your goals – such as places you

by Leisa on December 13, 2007

Further to my post a few days ago about needing to fight the government plan to fluoridate the water in QLD, there is legal action being mounted by the QAWF (Queenslander’s Against Water Fluoridation Inc.).

Did Your Dr. Miss This?

by Leisa on December 10, 2007

Whenever I have a person come in to my clinic complaining of fatigue, one mineral deficiency often comes to mind -the commonly known but much neglected Iron. Iron levels are of prime importance for many reasons. • For the formation of Haemoglobin, the oxygen carrying part of our red blood cells • For the formation of Myoglobin,

We Need To Fight This!

by Leisa on December 8, 2007

The mass medication of Queenslander’s by toxic Sodium Fluoride has again come under the spotlight due to the QLD Premier Anna Bligh’s push for this industrial waste product to be added to our water supply. A radio advertising campaign is underway to assure the public that the government is introducing this to save our children’s

100% Raw or Not?

by Leisa on December 4, 2007

One subject that is often discussed at Hippocrates – a completely raw, vegan, living foods retreat, is whether 100% raw is the ultimate diet. Now I have trouble sticking to rules of any kind – not that I go deliberately out of my way to break rules, but I do believe that any intelligent, conscious

Five Aspects of Health

by Leisa on November 30, 2007

Often I see at Hippocrates Health Centre, people who are so focused on their physical health, that they have let all the other areas in their life slide as they pursue the ultimate goal of a fit health body due to a perfect diet. But good health is more than just a lot of raw
