And not a moment to soon…

Are you hearing me?  Yup, it's been a BIG year..and to think I don't even have the ANS technically to blame this year!! How about you? But listening to myself say this to people, in my wrap-up of the year-that-just-was, I am thinking....Has anyone EVER got to the end...

Two Women Over 70 Walk Into A Room…

No this is not a joke. The room they enter happens to be the clinic space of a practitioner I mentor.  The older women are friends, both originally from the UK and they sit in on one another's consultations sharing many of the same experiences: grief over loved ones...

No Patch on Iodine Testing

    Whenever I talk to practitioners about thyroid health, like I recently did at MINDD, I can guarantee I'm going to get 2 questions: Shouldn't we aim for the high iodine intake of Japanese? Can we use the patch test for testing iodine levels in our patients? I am so...

Skip the Spin & Just Kiss

I've been given a lot to think about.  With ACNEM Science of Nutrition Conference and then MINDD both this last week, I've heard a lot.  Not all of it good, useful or accurate of course.  'Beware the Spin!' I would say to anyone wondering how to sift through the...

Fearlessly…or fearfully (?!) entering Twitterland

I was typing notes furiously throughout the ACNEM Science of Nutrition conference last weekend. So many gems, so many gems, from researchers & clinicians - I just got so much out of it. I love the slightly awkward mismatch between the research world, aka 'don't...

1/4 of a packet of Activated Almonds a Month…

'How much does the Update in Under 30 podcast subscription cost?' I hear you ask...about 1/4 of a packet of Activated Almonds per month, that's about 1 activated almond per day I reckon. This is a Byron Shire joke, the idea being that Activated Almonds are the...

Joining the Campfire Conversation

So you've heard part of that BIMA story...now here's the rest. To be honest, I was pretty surprised to win anything given I've spent the last 20 years 'agitating', challenging the misinformation and strongholds of the big companies etc. Funnily enough, in my post...

Beaming About My BIMA

Psssssssssssst....just thought I would share a special moment from a couple of weeks ago when I received the BIMA for Lecturer of the Year. Thanks to all those practitioners who nominated me for Lecturer, Nutritionist & Researcher of the year! It was really special to...

Satisfaction in Strange Places

There are many different potential sources of satisfaction that come from working in integrative health.  The first that comes to most of our minds of course is the deep satisfaction that comes with solving a complex health riddle for someone and knowing that you have...

Who is ‘Molly’??

I keep hearing the name, 'Molly': "I think I'll use 'Molly' for this patient" or "A bit of 'Molly' might go well with the zinc for their high copper"... a moment of confusion on my behalf, (Molly who?) and then the slightly late...'ooooooooh Molybdenum'. Gotta love a...

The Conference Trifecta! This is a Must Watch

Recently, I posted about my very positive experience of the AIMA NZ conference, prior to that I was gabbing on about the upcoming ACNEM Brain Health conference in Melbourne in May and now I am going for the conference hat trick!  I want to revisit a really impacting...

Elusive Integration?

Just back from a truly wonderful Australasian Integrative Medical Association (AIMA) conference in NZ.  I don't know what it is about the land of the long white cloud but they seem to produce some of the loveliest, most earnest health practitioners and this conference...

Did we Leave Oestrogen in the 80s?

Duck duck GOOSE! Do you know this game?  That's how I'm feeling with oestrogen - high-high-high-LOW!-of late. Likely similar to your experience, the majority of my female clients battle with oestrogen dominance, therefore I get so used to looking for it, expecting it:...
