‘Take Me To Your Master!’

I am frequently asked what scientific journals I subscribe to and often by the same practitioners over and over, because they can't reconcile my answer: "None".  Yet I constantly have my head in the scientific literature, right?  The two are not mutually exclusive,...

‘Sup with Zonulin?

Watch the gap!  You know I love a good diagnostic test probably (way!) more than the next person but I am slow to come around when there's suddenly a 'new-kid-on-the-block' that every functional testing company wants to offer you. This is how I felt about serum...

When it Quacks like a Duck…it Could be a QIR!

Yet another sensational week of group mentoring last week.  Holy guacamole...these cases just get more and more tasty! So much to talk about on every case presented, we all learnt buckets from a smorgasbord of conditions including: sudden onset thyroiditis (with a T4...

When I Would Give Withania A Miss

We kicked off mentoring this year with some great cases last week.  One was a pregnant hyperthyroid client.   During the session the wonderful practitioner mentions that the client is using Withania somnifera as required for anxiety. Insert sound of brakes screeching...

The Awake Delta Wave Experience

There's taking a break and then there's taking a break.   For most of us Christmas does not fit the definition of a break but rather simply an altered version of our escalated pre-Christmas frenzy.  The crazy end of year work wrap up replaced by the equally crazy...

A Duck Called Homer? (HOMA-IR)

If you're left wondering why on earth Rachel undertook the "Supersize Me Month" (see previous post here) then you may have missed her SAMe: Mental Health & Beyond tour.  It's funny really because one of the key areas Rachel discussed in this presentation is the...

Is This How Other People Feel?

One thing that you need to know about me is that I consider myself pretty healthy...surprise! :0) As in, I wake with energy, I love exercising and on a typical day I am blissfully ignorant of my digestive system..as in it doesn't speak to me via oohs aahs gripes and...
