Taking a Stand!

This year I’ve given up sitting & I couldn’t be happier or more annoying.  I’ve become one of those evangelical people that wants to now spread the word as far as possible.  I bought a standing desk and it’s radically improved my energy at...

Working on the Edge

May was the month of teenage girls presenting with severe digestive problems, especially ‘food intolerances’,  leading to avoidance of specific foods and at times significantly reduced food intake overall.  As integrative health practitioners,  validating...

Pyrroles…I Recant!!!

This year has been a steep learning curve but this is exactly as I had hoped and planned for.  I strapped myself in for my roller-coaster ride,  a series of intensive upskilling initiatives undertaken with mentors and experts in specialist areas, and I haven’t...

Somewhere Over the Teenage Rainbow

The other night my 16yo daughter was reading through bits of reading matter that had made it home from the recent ASLM conference – one in particular was all about contrasting dietary guidelines of key western countries and comparing these using a more...

Prolactin – But Wait There’s More!

As an add on to my recent blog, I thought you might find this other detail about prolactin levels (PRL) interesting.  Several studies including a one published in 2009, have demonstrated a positive correlation between PRL and increased CVD risk in both men and...

Are Hormones Driving the Autoimmune Bus?

Back a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of presenting at the Integria Symposium and the even greater pleasure of listening to some of the fabulous speakers …you see I’ve heard my stuff before! 😉 The ‘Mosaic of Autoimmunity’ was delivered by the...

Our Door Is Open – But Closing Soon!

While I am a sponge for new information I do have my moments… delusional moments when I think, ‘I am done learning’. These are usually very short lived, maybe an hour, half a day?  Inevitably, patients and the practitioners I have the honour of mentoring snap me...

Exploding Brain Juice

Does your brain feel like it’s going to explode, spilling brain-juice everywhere, when you do 2 weekend conferences in a row? Or is that just me?  I have returned to my desk after the Integria Symposium and then the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine...

Your Burning Zinc Questions Answered

Most practitioners are pretty knowledgeable about Zinc and are quick to recognise a deficiency and the opportunities for zinc supplementation as an effective therapy and those same practitioners are often plagued by nagging questions that come up, in spite of loads of...

The Year for Inaugural Innovative Integration?

  While the positive ripple effect of the ANS is still being felt (and – yes the video package is just about to be released, so prepare for another big ripple!!), there is another inaugural education event trailing hot on its heels!  Hopefully you’ve...

Finding Your Why

  As an organiser of the Australian Naturopathic Summit I wasn’t immune to the content.  In fact, like so many other practitioners we keep hearing from, I think I am forever changed…and that’s not just my adrenals talking!!  All the...

Uncovering Unhealthy Bones Earlier

Recently, while I was touring around the country talking all things Acid Base (!), I spent a bit of time talking to practitioners about the limitations of our current protocols and assessment tools for detecting ‘Bad Bones’.  I was surrounded by a sea of...

My Masterchef-free Kitchen

Anyone who knows me will tell you that unlike many praccies, I don’t double as Food Diva.  I cook yes…in abundance and I have been told on may occasions my food is ‘delish’ and no one leaves hungry but I focus my energy on preparing food that...
