Kids and Caffeine

by Rhianna on February 20, 2015

In general I do think our society is over-policed. There are so many rules and regulations we are expected to follow that it really can take away from using your own common sense and taking responsibility. But what about when minors are involved and their choices affects their health? What I am talking about is

The Dangers of Living a ‘Normal’ Life- Part 2

by Rhianna on February 16, 2015

I have had this blog post in the back of my mind for a couple of months now. At the end of the first part of this blog, where we looked at coffee, one of the most commonly consumes ‘health danger’ in our society, I promised to write more on meat, wheat and dairy. Well,

The Dangers of Living a ‘Normal’ Life

by Rhianna on November 13, 2014

It’s a dreary kind of day here today, and after an uncomfortable night sleep I woke feeling a bit worse for wear. Getting ready for work I tend to go into autopilot and just let my thoughts wander, and today they wandered to coffee. As I looked outside at the misty, dull day and felt

When Physical Symtoms Are More Than Just Physical

by Rhianna on November 11, 2014

I have recently been reminded just how much more our bodies hold than simple mechanistic feeling. In the past, I have written about the emotional aspects of detoxing, and how emotions and feeling are stored in our body cells just as sure as nutrients and wastes are. Most retreat attendees experience a physical detoxification on

Salty Cures

by Rhianna on November 6, 2014

I know the title of this blog sounds like a band or perhaps a street performer known to live in Byron Bay (oh wait, that’s Salty Rain), but today we are actually looking into the miracle that is salt. I was lucky enough to travel around Australia last year, helping out on the David Wolfe

What’s For Breakfast? Part 2

by Rhianna on October 13, 2014

For me, breakfast might just be the most exciting and delicious meal of the day. I feel terribly sorry for people who say they ‘hate breakfast’ or wake without an appetite. If this is the case for you, some work on your hydrochloric acid levels and nervous system will help bring that morning appetite back.

What’s For Breakfast? Part 1

by Rhianna on October 9, 2014

Breakfast seems to be a meal that many people struggle with when transitioning to a healthy eating lifestyle. Culturally, we are a country who will choose toast and spreads or cereal and milk, plus a tea or coffee to start our day. Nutritionally, this is pretty poor fair to break a 12 hour fast. Often

Doctor Google

by Rhianna on July 23, 2014

A little while ago I found a funny meme on Facebook and added it to our wall. It said something along the lines of: “Googling your symptoms is the quickest way to convince yourself that you are dying” This is absolutely, without a doubt, true. In fact I have done it myself. The positive I
