After only a couple of hours sleep we packed ourselves up and took to the airport for a quick trip to Melbourne.  We were met at the airport by one of the organisers Donna and a friend Kris, and our first stop was an organic produce shop for some juice. And who should be bump

Five Aspects of Health

by Leisa on November 30, 2007

Often I see at Hippocrates Health Centre, people who are so focused on their physical health, that they have let all the other areas in their life slide as they pursue the ultimate goal of a fit health body due to a perfect diet. But good health is more than just a lot of raw
