This says it better

by Leisa on November 18, 2007

Here is a quote I came across recently, that sums up what I was trying to say in my Blog post “Don’t Be a Food Nag”. “One of the main reasons people get turned off to diets is that the plans are so often cloaked in righteousness. There’s a ‘my way or the highway’ tone

What milk?

by Leisa on November 15, 2007

I often get asked by people what type of milk they should use in their smoothies or as a milk replacement in their diet.  There are so many choices for people nowadays – the plethora of different types of cow’s milk – as well as goat’s milk, oat milk, rice milk, soy milk, almond milk,

Health Freedom

by Leisa on November 11, 2007

Just this week a story came through talking about the health freedoms that New Zealander’s currently enjoy, that have been destroyed in other countries. It is no exaggeration that our health freedoms and the availability of vitamins, minerals and herbs in the doses that may be needed for optimal health, are under a serious threat.

These two nutrients, one vitamin and one mineral, are commonly found to be low in the general population and both are

Quote of the Day

by Leisa on September 29, 2007

One of my favourite quotes is from David Wolfe, author and raw food promoter: “We are tired of eating pesticide, herbicide, fungicide, larvicide, suicide, pasteurised, homogenised, cooked, boiled, glow-in-the-dark, pus-filled food”. I could add to that – “laboratory created, genetically modified, molecularly restructured, irradiated, nutrient deficient, chemically laden, processed, preservative filled, fake, Frankenstein food”.

Pink Ribbon Propaganda

by Leisa on September 16, 2007

I try very hard to stay away from mainstream media. When I accidently overhear popular radio or catch a few minutes of morning television, I find the general tone of it incredibly patronising to my intelligence, and it seems to cater for an audience that don’t want to think for themselves and enjoy being deliberately

Who am I?  I am the Naturopath
