Simple Raw Food Combining

by Leisa on July 9, 2010

I found this great article on raw food combining whilst surfing the net – something I do a lot of!  I’ve played around a lot with food combining over the years – the very first experiment I made when I was 15 years old, was changing to a raw food and food combining diet. Over

Raw Food Perfectionism

by Leisa on April 18, 2010

I admire perfectionism, I have a healthy dose of this trait myself – but it is when perfectionist tendencies turn rigid that they become a problem – both for the person with the stratospheric expectations, and for those around them. Perfectionism – the need for things to be 100% perfect all the time, can engender

Prozac Plague

by Leisa on October 21, 2009

I am not a fan of anti-depressant usage by any stretch of imagination.  I believe that they can be used extremely carefully in very traumatic situations, short term only – to assist someone who is in a very bad state and is not in a frame of mind to do what it takes to get well

What an Awesome Mum!

by Leisa on August 9, 2009

I received a wonderful  e-mail recently from a very clever lady who has done an amazing job with her own health and that of her family.  She is open to learning more, experimenting with whole foods and raising her children as naturally and healthfully as possible.  This made me smile and I’m sure it will make you smile

Taking the Time for Real Rest

by Leisa on July 2, 2009

One of the points that Dr. Fred Bisci emphasised during his lectures in Australia, was the importance of rest when it comes to healing.  He talked about how during water fasting, one should lay down with closed eyes as much as possible, to conserve energy and retain that energy within for healing purposes. In my recent

Healing Without Medication

by Leisa on June 16, 2009

My partner William and I have a very different view on healing and what the body is capable of; as compared to most people.  Even those with an interest in, and some knowledge of natural healing, rarely trust the process of healing which isn’t always pleasant. As an example, just last week William had an abscess

Is the Connection So Hard To See?

by Leisa on May 14, 2009

I’ve written before about how easy it is for me to forget that most of the population don’t view food and healing the same way that I do! Food, health and healing are a daily experience for me – I live it, I read about it, I research it, I teach it and I associate

Trusting Your Own Body

by Leisa on February 24, 2009

It has been a great start to the week of detoxing and education about raw food and health at this latest retreat – and one point that everyone is learning really well – is that we CAN trust our own bodies. We are taught so thoroughly to not trust the messages our body gives us.  If we
