Toxic Oestrogen

Are You Full Of Toxic Oestrogen?

by Leisa on July 19, 2013

Oestrogen dominance is a term that is becoming more familiar, as people start to recognise the crucial role that hormone balance has in our health and in the prevention of many disease states. Oestrogen, a mainly female hormone, has hit the spotlight due to its potential influence in the development of hormonally influenced cancers such

Breast cancer Wordcloud

Breast cancer has been big news in the media of late. From the controversial (and for me – horrifying) decision of Angelina Jolie to have a preventative mastectomy, to the endless pink ribbon mania and push for more dollars for “cancer research” – now we are hearing more and more about an “alternative” to mastectomies for preventing cancer

Are You In Oestrogen Overload?

by Leisa on February 7, 2013

Many women (and some men) today are suffering from a little known and poorly understood condition called oestrogen dominance, that can, if not discovered and corrected, have disastrous health consequences. We are mainly familiar with oestrogen as primarily a female hormone, produced by the ovaries, and being responsible for female sexual development and characteristics. In

Pinkwashing: Breast Cancer Fraud

by Leisa on November 7, 2012

If anyone happened to notice (!) last month was Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the whole world turned pink. Now, I know I have a pink website, but I didn’t think about the “pinkwashing” industry when I set it up and created my branding! So I’m going to happily own my “Embracing Health Pink” but

Parabens Found in ALL Breast Cancer Tumours

by Leisa on January 7, 2012

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

This is Not Preventative Medicine

by Leisa on August 30, 2010

I found this to be a very sad story. Two young sisters decided to both undergo a double mastectomy after several members of their family had passed away from breast cancer. Full story here: dailymail.co.uk There are many reasons why I find this story sad and distressing, one of the main reasons being that this

I Was on the News!

by Leisa on August 27, 2010

During the Dr Sherrill Sellman Tour, Channel Nine Gold Coast News took an interest in the subjects that Sherrill was speaking about, and did a short segment for the news, on hormonal influences in breast cancer. Isn’t it fantastic that the topic was raised in the mainstream media? I was asked about Saliva Hormone Testing, as

I received a e-mail newsletter recently, from maxAwareness, a website devoted to raising awareness about alternative and integrative medicine for people healing cancer.  The founder of the site is a beautiful lady whom I met many years ago when she was lecturing about her own personal story of healing cancer naturally.

The Dr Sherrill Sellman Tour is just over, and what a wonderful round of events it was – in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney & Melbourne we had a great time talking all things female. It was just fantastic to meet so many people whom I have known only through the website or e-mail, and to be

Woman examining her breast for signs of breast cancer

“(NaturalNews) It’s well-established that exposure to ionizing radiation can trigger mutations and other genetic damage and cause normal cells to become malignant. So it seems amazing how mainstream medicine frequently dismisses the idea that medical imaging tests from mammograms to CT scans could play much of a role in causing breast cancer. Take this example
