Are Colonics Dangerous?

by Leisa on July 16, 2013

Colonic Irrigation made it into the mainstream media this week – but as usual the article was incredibly one-sided and slammed colonics as being dangerous.  It trotted out some old myths and used misinformation to attempt to show that colonics have no benefit whatsoever, and could in fact, harm people’s health.   The Daily Mail writes:

Spiritual Madness

by Leisa on July 11, 2013

Just recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Caroline Myss, and have been really enjoying delving into the concepts of spirituality that she discusses. One of her talks is entitled “Spiritual Madness” and it has deeply resonated with me. It was 25 years ago, when I was in my teens, that I started on

Is Naturopathy Unscientific?

by Leisa on July 10, 2013

We often hear loud protests from the medical community that natural medicine is “unscientific” because many nutrients, herbs, foods and therapies have not undergone the Gold Standard for the scientific industry – the double blind placebo controlled trial. Natural medicine, because of it’s holistic quality, can never conform to industry standards because you cannot measure

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

Candida – Causes, Cures & Candy

by Rhianna on March 7, 2013

One of the most common “irritating complaints” I see on a regular basis, are people struggling with the symptoms of Candida overgrowth. Unfortunately, the medical profession doesn’t really give much guidance when it comes to this problem. Patients of mine have actually been told “Well, that’s what you get for not eating enough yoghurt”. Others

I Saw Your Boobs

by Leisa on February 26, 2013

Yesterday I happened to come across a video of a song that was performed at the Academy Awards a day or two ago called “I Saw Your Boobs”. And it made me really angry. You might ask why someone who writes about health, food as medicine, nutrition and emotional healing, wants to write about a song that was

You Are a Flawless Diamond

by Leisa on February 10, 2013

Spontaneous healing and using the power of the mind to combat disease, have always fascinated me. I have a library full of books delving deeply into this phenomenon, and even though there is not one clear-cut solution on any healing path, there are a myriad of techniques to explore on the way. I was revisiting some of

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

by Leisa on February 2, 2013

Stress is a very common complaint today, with many of us feeling over-worked, under pressure and without enough hours in the day to get everything done.  Besides the problems we often associate with stress, such as tension and anxiety, insomnia and headaches – the digestive system is one that is badly affected by stress. Many people
