Special offer for RAN subscribers…

Not long ago, Kathryn Simpson and I were sharing a hotel room on yet another work trip to somewhere. The lights were out, it was way past our bedtime and we were just gasbagging incessantly like a couple of teens, when a thought pops into my head: "Hey Kathryn, back...

“Mummy Are You Losing Your Hair?”

The words together with the horror on her face made me feel instantly nauseous.  I'd been internally debating for months now if I was simply imagining things and intellectualising about how this just might be the case... observing myself looking in the mirror more...

Gotta Love An Upgrade!

Upgrade's always give you so much more and here at RAN, we wanted to give our UU30 subscribers...

Magic Medicines?

I was just reading the results of a spot Facebook poll of GPs asking what the most wonderful medications ever invented are.  Once everyone got the customary "caffeine" gag out of the way, the rest of the nominations and auspicious award winners unfolded like a who's...

That’s Not A Methylation Issue…

This is.   I think we're all going to scream when the next patient says, 'I've got an MTHFR', right?! Congratulations, I want to say, because you would be in much more serious trouble if you didn't have a copy... 'Oh, sorry, you mean you have a mutation on at least...

I’ve Had a Gut Full of Glutamine!

"I always give some Glutamine to heal their leaky gut" Cue pained expression on my face.  No, I'm not a fan.  I take that back, I have no problem with the amino acid itself and I'm still in awe of its incredible multifaceted role in the gut.  What I do have a giant...

A Mum, Dad & Their Son Walk Into Your Clinic

They've just come from the immunologist, having presented with extensive vitiligo in dad and early stage vitiligo now in their primary school aged son.  The immunologist, without running a single blood test, told them, 'Bad news, you both have autoimmune issues and...

Just finished talking with the fearless fertility naturopathic specialist, Rhiannon Hardingham, who wanted to let me know that after listening to my Update in Under 30: Silent Reflux she's had a lot of success treating both GORD and insomnia in her pregnant patients....

Iodine – Questions & Confusion Need Clearing Up!

That's me...always questioning the 'status quo' and Iodine is  the perfect example!  The interview I did on this important subject with Andrew Whitfield-Cook from FxMedicine, covers a lot of key areas of confusion & underscores why it's so critical all health...

The Wait is Over!…My Standing Desk Review Is In

I promised I would keep all you fellow desk workers posted. Over 6 months has passed since I started standing for work....and I LOVE IT!  Here are the pros I can wax lyrically about so far: Back ache from long days at the computer, gone...seriously I am more energised...

Batmania here I come…

No, I haven't gone crazy for the 'caped crusader'... but I thought that would get your attention.... oh look it did! 😉 I’m off to Melbourne for the ACNEM Conference May 5-6th and Batmania was one of the interim names of this very cool and happenin' town before it...

So You Think You Know the Best Iron Supplements?!

Ok now you're getting mad at me, right? Because how many 'absolute givens' can I debunk?! Last Update in Under 30 certainly got people talking...giving iron less often rather than more often to our most iron deficient patients seems counter-intuitive, right?! Wrong. ...
