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’?

Known medication side effects

From a young age, I was aware of side effects of the different medications I had been exposed to. Having heard my parents talk of the loss of a baby with deformities thanks to thalidomide, some of my earliest health memories were the fears discussed on a regular basis. By age 6 I’d already suffered a cardiac/respiratory arrest due to the side effects of … Read More Known medication side effects

Getting your pH right!

I recently became embroiled in a pretty one-sided argument with a colleague – someone with an international reputation to uphold. The sad thing was, despite some very smug comments and many people joining him in attacking me, the basic truth was that he was wrong. It was not only irresponsible but misleading to the very people who were seeking the truth. Regardless of your … Read More Getting your pH right!

* Do YOU have Lyme/Fibro/CFS?

I have been involved professionally with invisible auto immune disorders for over 3 decades. Personally, I have been involved since 2006. It almost destroyed my family – my daughter’s battle took us by surprise and I suddenly discovered that everything I had learned up until that time accounted for little when every day we faced the worst pain and sickness imaginable. I formulated a … Read More * Do YOU have Lyme/Fibro/CFS?

The next step – how to get healthy

Why are there so many treatment ideals, different angles of advice? Who is right, who is wrong and does anyone really know? Surely if naturopaths had it right, their ideals would be mainstream and accepted by orthodoxy? Sadly, in almost 3 decades of health care, one thing that has been glaringly obvious to me is the fact that despite honest intentions, and despite sincere … Read More The next step – how to get healthy

WORK STRESS & MENTAL HEALTH

One of the latest trends to hit our media outlets, current affairs programs and blatant sales pitch publicity efforts involves stress in the corporate workplace – ie work stress and mental health. This alarming trend of labeling the simplest of issues as a serious mental health threat is often a grab of the corporate dollar while medicalising everything needlessly. The same applications in this … Read More WORK STRESS & MENTAL HEALTH

It is headlines like this and the propaganda that goes along with it, that really makes me think we are a nation of DUMMIES.
