I Have a New Name!

by Leisa on April 29, 2020

Healing is Not a Linear Path

by Leisa on October 17, 2019

Of all people, I should know this one well! Having worked with thousands of people over the past fifteen years, often closely accompanying them on their healing journeys – if there’s one thing I’ve learned, is that it’s never a straight path back to health.

I had a profound healing experience this week (well to be honest I’ve had several profound healing experiences this week – but the others will have to wait for another time!), but I wanted to share this one as it is such a clear illustration of the healing power we can find in the natural

Belle Gibson’s Fraud

by Leisa on June 29, 2015

Like thousands of other viewers last night, I tuned into the 60 minutes interview with Belle Gibson. I hadn’t followed her story originally, I caught bits of it from social media and some blogs, but prior to that she wasn’t on my radar at all. But since the story of her fraud broke, I’ve been

by Leisa on May 4, 2015

Last week it was my birthday. And along with celebrating with my family and friends, I had a promotional special all ready to launch to the readers of Embracing Health, and those interested in doing one of my detox retreats. I was going to do a “Birthday Bali Bonus!” offer, and was promoting a 10%

by Rhianna on March 3, 2015

Sometimes when you feel particularly unwell, starting on your journey towards health can seem almost pointless.

Diabetes Dictionary Definition Orange Marker

There is an epidemic coming—but it’s not a rampant, infectious pandemic that many live in fear of, hyped to hysteria by an alarmist and sensationalist-loving media. It is much more insidious than that—stealthily stalking millions of unwary people, and even now reaching such extraordinary numbers that we should be sitting up and taking notice. The

The Rubbish Ads Teach

by Rhianna on September 30, 2014

Last week I spent the week at home. My partner and I planned to take the week off together as a “stay-cation”, a vacation where you just hang out at home. We were both going to do a cleanse, I was doing an Ayurvedic detox and Asa was going to do a bit of gut
