Getting Over A Bad Case Of The Guilts

by Rhianna on January 14, 2014

The festive season is over for another year (as long as you don’t count Australia day and Easter both looming on the horizon!), and for the majority of people out there, this time of the new year can tend to go one of two ways. For some, it might be detox central, with many super

Natural Medicine & Her Friends…

by Rhianna on November 4, 2013

Being here at the Embracing Health Retreat in beautiful, magical, Ubud has brought to the forefront of my mind just what it takes to really heal. Really truly heal. Mind. Body. Soul.

Express Iridology

by Rhianna on October 16, 2013

Last week I was asked to attend a one-day iridology intensive for a large corporation on the Gold Coast.

by Leisa on September 23, 2013

I absolutely LOVE the power of natural medicine and it’s ability to initiate a healing response in the body.

Continued from Part 1… Fats- no longer the bad guy 20 years ago, fats were regarded as the root of all evil. Fats were thought to make you fat. And this paved the way for a barrage of low fat, no fat, fat free rubbish corrupting our shelves and our bodies. But what many people

The Art Of Reading Food Labels – Part 1

by Rhianna on August 27, 2013

Never Been Sick A Day In My Life!

by Leisa on August 19, 2013

This post unfortunately is not a celebration of reaching for the incredible heights of health that mean that we are never, ever sick, but moreso, is a little bit of a warning to those who are never, ever unwell. One of the statements that I have heard often as a naturopath is often from people
