Energy credit

Recently I did something that felt amazing. I sat at my kitchen table and wanted to squeal with delight – you know, that feeling when you’re so excited you can’t contain yourself? But I was alone and that felt weird so instead I just enjoyed the buzz. In front of me lay one pair of …

It’s OK to feel sad (or angry)

“Don’t cry, it’ll be OK”, “calm down, there’s no need to be upset”, “chill out/get over it”. Did you hear these and similar sentiments growing up? As parents, we discourage our children from tantrums, sadness and anger. I can’t tell you how much time my daughter spent in the naughty corner (thanks to the powerful …

How guilt can be disrupting your gut health

You may have heard the phrase ‘rest and digest’. It’s the opposing state of ‘fight and flight’.

The ANS …

Why mindful eating matters

When it comes to healthy digestion, what does your environment, mindset and the way that you perceive and consume your food have to do with it? A lot, it turns out.

A workout for your emotions

When we experience pain or discomfort, over time we create and attach emotions to those sensations. Your physical experience might be a cramp in your tummy, but the emotional story might be one of fear (“what is this pain – have I got cancer?”), uncertainty (“why am I the only one who gets this pain”), …

Detoxing

We are all familiar with the idea of doing a ‘detox’, and yet while it is often poo-pooed, there is legitimacy to it. At its most basic, detoxification is the process of transforming, neutralising, and eliminating toxins and by-products that the body finds to be unhealthful or unnecessary; a constant, ongoing, natural process to clean …

‘The Way’ of Sleep

The only person who knows exactly how much sleep you need, is you. We find that around eight hours is the magic number for most people. Evidence suggests that too little (less than 6.5 hours), and too much (more than 8.5 hours) sleep can have negative health implications. We have a ball-park for what constitutes …

‘The Why’ of Sleep

If there is a word that personifies modern life, it would be: ‘busy’. Busy is something we pride ourselves on; no matter the arena. To be the first to arrive at work, and the last to leave, is glorified. A mum who manages to hold the family together, while doing all the home-life stuff, including …

Fluoridation – how safe is your drinking water?

Today let’s get a little controversial and talk about water. Are you aware that your water is medicated? Although there are many water treatment processes, fluoride is unusual in that it doesn’t treat the water itself, but rather the person consuming it. The Food & Drug Administration accepts that fluoride is a drug, not a …

MTHFR…what the?

If you are into health, then you may have heard about MTHFR, and if you’ve dared to dig into it, you are probably thoroughly confused. Let’s break it down simplistically. What is MTHFR?

Organic food…is it worth it?

Organic produce is often seen to be relatively expensive, less accessible and goes ‘off’ quickly, so why would you eat organic?

What is your food made from?

Modern food just ain’t what it used to be. This statement should be read quite literally. Many of the packaged products available, should more accurately be described as ‘food-like products’, than food in the true sense, you know, the kind that provides you with valuable nutrition; the stuff of life. As far as the body …

Resoleomics, Stress, and ‘The Self’.

Leo Pruimboom writes on resoleomics in his article entitled: ‘The evolutionary origins of inflammation’, which I summarise here: Resoleomics is the body’s response to potential or actual damage, inclusive of injuries, pathogenic exposure and oxygen deficit.
