Don’t get me started …

    Ever wondered where on earth (or Mars?!) I came from?  As much as I can't keep quiet on some topics, my personal journey to here has been a bit of closed book to many.  Recently during an interview with Andrew Whitfield-Cook from FxMedicine, which was supposed to...

Does Saturated Fat Increase the Uptake of Endotoxins?

In an ASLM Tweet I shared this weekend, I mentioned our own 'Gut Guru', Jason Hawrelak reported dietary saturated fat (including coconut oil) increases GIT endotoxin uptake and boy did that stir the pot!  The social media switchboard lit up! It's ok I know there isn't...

1 Egg, 1 Banana

I've been travelling a lot for work lately, so in my absence my teens have been under the influence of others and as a result they've returned with new & improved habits.  This one is gold: 1 egg  + 1 banana beat egg & add to mashed banana pour into a hot pan, coated...

Welcoming a New Member to the Family!

I just want to scream with joy...and then keep on screaming with utter frustration!  Last week I presented the culmination of months of work looking into the extraordinary manifold relationships between thyroid health, fertility, pregnancy & post-partum health for mum...

Hey, Weed Lovers

I know you're out there. Reading a recent news article I had instant flashbacks of being a young, big-eyed, rosy cheeked naturopathic student of 20+years ago.  While my career since may have taken me in somewhat of a different direction, I know many of my colleagues...

Bringing Up Teens – Yes, Yes but No

This week I must have spent more than my daily time allocation (5mins) on Facebook and as a result I stumbled across an article I actually read from beginning to finish!  The title called to me, "Bad Parent, Hey Bad Parent"...it works every time right?  Anyway, once I...

A Bit of Culture Shock

I've managed to befriend a microbiologist.  I know it wouldn't excite everyone, but it's my big good news story of the month and I can't wipe the smile off my face when I announce this to friends and colleagues. Friends don't get it. Yet another Rachel weirdism. But...

Digging Deeper Into Thyroid

Have you still got some thyroid patients that don't fit any sort of traditional thyroid disease model and are difficult to get results with? Oh yes me too... and watch out...I've been spending the last few weeks with my nose firmly embedded in hundreds of articles...

Freya’s Coffee Rules

We all try and surround ourselves with fabulous people in our workplace and I have been luckier than most.  I'll talk more another time about how to attract the right people to work for your business but right now I just want to share a gem from the fabulous Freya who...

Are You Over-Delivering?

This year has kicked off with lots of time spent re-calibrating my own and other practitioners' businesses models via business mentoring and it's such a privilege.  One symptom that seems to creep into almost every practitioner's business model though, is one of...

Appendicitis Update

I've been digging around in the scientific literature all about appendicitis and I've ended up here.  Long gone are the days when medicine foolishly considered the appendix without purpose - a dispensable 'extra' of the GIT and now, thanks to genetic PCR bacterial...

Misunderstandings & Mistakes – I’ve Made a Few!

Yep, I've had them...and made them.  I often hear practitioners say they cringe when they think back about the patients they saw in the first year because of the vastly greater knowledge they have now.  I do too. But my mistakes are more recent than that!  I know more...

Back to ‘Basics’ for New Year Resolves?

Sheeeeeshkebab I squirm at the whole premise of new year's resolutions.  If you understand a little about the process of behavioural change, you'll appreciate that there's no magic dust (or firework pollutants!) you are going to get sprinkled with between pre and post...
