by Leisa on January 23, 2012

Years ago I read a book titled “Stumbling on Happiness” by Daniel Gilbert and was fascinated to read that twelve months after either having an accident which left you as a paraplegic, or twelve months after winning the lottery, people rated their feelings of happiness at about the same level. Which just goes to show that

There are never any guarantees when it comes to the treatment and healing of cancer. The one thing that I am certain of though, is that it is possible to heal from cancer naturally. I have been privileged to witness this many times during my career – however that doesn’t mean that there is one

As a naturopath I recommended my fair share of CDSA’s. That’s Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis’s – or in other words – POOP TESTING. Now I am sure you all know, we naturopaths are obsessed by poop. We LOVE it!  We look at it, we talk about it, we study it, we think about it, and I even

Digestive complaints are much more common than you would think, and too many people have to put up with distressing and painful symptoms, because they are unable to find the answers they need. Many foods cause uncomfortable symptoms, one of the main culprits being the gluten in wheat based products. Wheat today has been hybridised and

One of the subjects that I talk about extensively at my retreats and as part of the education material I provide in the Embracing Health Membership Club, is the issue of chemicals in our personal care and cleaning products. It’s not enough to think that eating organic fruit and vegetables, and shunning the preservatives, colours

As much as I love raw food and the results people get when they introduce more high quality organic raw foods and superfoods into their diets – what I also love just as much, are the results people get when they explore their emotional side, and the positive impact this work can have on their

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

Inspiring Story

by Leisa on January 12, 2008

I received an e-mail before Christmas from an author that has a site called Cancer Defeated, telling the story of what one family did to help their little boy survive cancer.

The Story of Stuff

by Leisa on December 29, 2007

The Story of Stuff is a 20 minute animated video/film you can watch online, that presents its important message in a very simple, yet entertaining way. The movie explains in straightforward, powerful terms why our present system of ever-accelerating production and consumption is unsustainable, unjust and unfulfilling, and makes the case that it doesn’t have
