Wondering About The One That Got Away?

Luckily I still had the file. After seeing patients for a couple of decades, I have to get periodically ruthless with the shredder for those I haven't seen in a long time and 7 years qualifies as a long gap between appointments but when I saw her name in my calendar,...

We Have A Winner… Among Many!

Last week I threw down a challenge.  Following on from the ruffling of many feathers regarding Jason Hawrelak's report that dietary saturated fat increases uptake of endotoxins from the gut,  I provided his reference list in support of this claim, effectively saying,...

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

Is This You?

When I was studying my undergraduate I sat at the front of the class, especially for the medical sciences.  My chemistry lecturer tried to talk me into transferring to chemistry.  My biochemistry lecturer tried to convince me to become a biochemist.  But what I loved...

The Guts of the Problem

Felice Jacka is onto something.  You might know her as the daughter of Judy Jacka (naturopathic trailblazer who established the SSNT), you might know her as the Australian researcher who really started the bigger international scientific conversation about diet and...

NONZ/NZSN 2017 Conference

Kia ora tātou! Yes, that's right! I’m heading off again to the land of the long white cloud. I’m very excited to be part of the Inaugural Conference that the New Zealand Society of Naturopaths and the Naturopaths of New Zealand are hosting 9-10th September in...

This is Why I Love My Job!

On Sunday there were deafening bells going off in my brain. By Monday they were going off in 11 others. Alessandra: "Holy s#*t this has just ticked so many boxes for a couple of Rx resistant patients. Thank you!" Tess: "Me too – finally the gut and pain connection...
