When is a diet not a DIET?

Many times during my (seemingly never-ending) years of study and research, the topic of food combining and alkaline diet popped up. Sometimes I took a little on board but being a little warped by early medical studies I just could not equate diet with cure. Okay, so it was a good foundation but as for healing, surely you needed other modalities to make a … Read More When is a diet not a DIET?

Constipation – today’s ‘normal’?

Recently I came upon what I initially believed to be a really good parenting website – well sorry guys, for mums only apparently –  as only mums offer ‘sound’ advice on all things parenting. Pfft. As usual, it was filled with health and advice topics but it wasn’t long before I was gritting my teeth and chomping to start posting. Mothers were actually suggesting … Read More Constipation – today’s ‘normal’?

Murdoch Institute Set to Unleash A Whole New Series of Epidemics?

I recently read about an upcoming study being conducted by the Murdoch Research Institute – you know, the one headed and funded by the media Beelzebub himself, Rupert Murdoch – along with well-indoctrinated son James (previously on the board of GSK) – and with the social darling Sarah as its spokesperson – which is calling for newborn infants to be sacrificed as guinea pigs … Read More Murdoch Institute Set to Unleash A Whole New Series of Epidemics?

What To Do When You Have No Health Insurance

The con is complete. First, take away traditional healing, punish those who know truths that have kept lives safe and healthy for centuries, millenia even. Transform health care – even childbirth – into a male dominated power trip. Paint natural healing as quackery and charlatanism. Poison food and water. When synthetic medications no longer work and are responsible for more disease than ever, start … Read More What To Do When You Have No Health Insurance

How pharma and dentistry are destroying your teeth.

Colgate’s latest claim on TV advertising is about as low as it can go. So, if you are one of the myriad viewers who believe that eating what you like and brushing with arguably toxic toothpaste will result in a lifelong tenure of your teeth, I can only scream – WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Are you crazy or just lazy? For years, unethical dental … Read More How pharma and dentistry are destroying your teeth.

Raising kids on healthy food – avoiding the media scrum for fast food…

Burgers, chips (fries), nuggets, hot dogs, pizza. On it goes. It’s everywhere and most of our kids want it. The good news is that we can let them have fast food – yes, fast food can be healthy. It just needs a little work from you…   My ebook Oh No, A Vegetarian! What Am I Supposed To Cook? has chapters dedicated to this … Read More Raising kids on healthy food – avoiding the media scrum for fast food…

Does sugar form fat and disease?

This article is one of Robert Young’s latest. I’d like to add that it merely addresses what we are told by health experts to be healthy. To this list, you can add the obvious – including ‘diet’ drinks which contain an acid called aspartame, which is linked to seizures, MS and diabetes, amongst other things. Sugar is a Disease Causing Acid Sugar is a … Read More Does sugar form fat and disease?

WHAT DO YOUR GLANDS AND YOUR HEIGHT HAVE IN COMMON?

What do a pre-pubescent child and a post menopausal woman have in common? Something that has shown up a lot over the years, among my patients – regardless of whether they are 11 years old or 81 years old, male or female, is endocrine dysfunction. So what, you ask? A few symptoms that fall into this category – Mood swings Abdominal inflammation Porous bones … Read More WHAT DO YOUR GLANDS AND YOUR HEIGHT HAVE IN COMMON?

Back to school health

This topic could be a book very easily but today I want to summarise some of the stuff that I have heard parents talking about recently, with the start of the school year. There is a lot out there, courtesy of the media, old wive’s tales and clever pharmaceutical manipulation on how to raise your child. But what if you want to be a … Read More Back to school health

Integrative health care of those with ‘special needs’

This is a very sensitive subject, not the least because alternative health practitioners are largely forbidden from officially treating those with special needs – an appalling truth, considering how simple it can often be, how low on the trauma scale it can be and how rapidly effective it can be when an individual is unhindered by emotional bias. Something that is voraciously debated in … Read More Integrative health care of those with ‘special needs’

Is Lactose Intolerance killing the kids as well as the cows?

Is lactose intolerance a ‘real’ health issue? Do kids need calcium supplements? What can you have in place of milk? What health issues does milk cause? What health issues are caused by NOT drinking milk? How do I know if my child is getting enough calcium/protein/nutrients if he/she isn’t drinking milk or eating other dairy products? Will my child outgrow lactose intolerance? Will they … Read More Is Lactose Intolerance killing the kids as well as the cows?

Dying to catch the flu?

WARNING!! NOTHING TREATS OR PREVENTS INFLUENZA LIKE NATURAL HEALTH OPTIONS. HOSPITALS CLOGGED WITH FLU CASES! Really Australia? I mean, really? It is headlines like this and the propaganda that goes along with it, that really makes me think we are a nation of DUMMIES. I’m sorry, but when you are a child and you touch a hot surface, you learn, right? Well, some of … Read More Dying to catch the flu?
