Emotions Stored As Fat?

by Leisa on June 22, 2015

The world of mind-body medicine is a fascinating one, and is an area that I’ve studied and explored in depth over the past thirty years. My journey into this world started in my teens and I worked with some incredible healers very early on that opened my mind to the power our emotions have to

Secret Sugar

by Leisa on June 15, 2015

Last night on Sixty Minutes they covered a story about the amount of hidden sugar found in common foods that people consume every single day. I think it’s fantastic that this type of investigation is being publicised on mainstream television, as it is obvious from the copious quantities of processed foods on the supermarket shelf,

Everything In Moderation, Right? WRONG!

by Leisa on May 12, 2015

After writing yesterday’s post about the “Paleo Pete” story on A Current Affair, the comment made by the host after the close of the segment, got me thinking. As the program came to an end the host stated “Everything in moderation, is what they say“, basically affirming that “they” (whoever “they” are) must have a

Feeling Frantic? You Could Be Fatigued…

by Leisa on April 6, 2015

It seems like a contradiction in terms, but sometimes feeling completely frantic and anxious can be a sign of fatigue. When someone is suffering from adrenal exhaustion, the hormone cortisol is not being produced in optimal amounts. Alongside the common symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, such as low blood pressure (dizziness on standing up quickly), salt

But I Don’t Eat Much!

by Leisa on February 16, 2015

It is a very interesting mind-set that we have in today’s society that equates eating less food – to good health. We have been marketed to for decades by the diet industry pushing the belief that the answer to weight loss is to ‘eat less and exercise more’. As most know, that simplistic mantra for

Depression is such a common disorder today, with some of the highest selling drugs on the market being anti-depressants. People are having trouble coping with life, and there is not just one factor that contributes to depression, but many angles to explore in the uncovering of what is actually going on. Certainly poor food choices

Acceptable Versus Optimal

by Rhianna on December 17, 2014

Before we even get into today’s blog, I have a simple question for you. What would you prefer? Acceptable health, or optimal health? I can’t imagine a single person who would be happy with acceptable health when optimal health was on offer. So from that question, I would hazard a guess and say that in

Ovarian Cysts are a Symptom of Hypothyroidism

by Leisa on December 2, 2010

Thyroid problems are an area that I have studied in depth, having suffered myself with hypothyroidism, and been subjected to the incompetence of several medical practitioners before I found the answers myself.  Since then, I’ve found thyroid issues are one of the most mis-understood and mis-diagnosed conditions today. Dr John Lowe is one of the foremost

Shiitake Mushrooms

What I love to do in my own life, and what I love to teach, is how to continue to improve the nutritional value of everything you put in your mouth.  We eat three or more times a day, and it is just as easy to choose something nutritious, as it is to choose something

by Leisa on April 12, 2010

From Ninemsn:  “An Australian study has identified a previously unsuspected cause of heart disease in women, the hormonal disorder polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The condition affects about ten per cent of women of reproductive age and it is a leading cause of infertility. Adelaide-based researchers have warned that young women with PCOS may show signs
