Healthy Home Stay

Recently I met some people at the Noosa Harbour Market.  They were interested to know what ‘Healthy Home Stay’ was all about.  I thought the best way to answer them was to write a typical scenario and share the information with everyone here.

A Salad A Day

People often ask me how do I start with my journey to get healthy and alter my pH, get more energy etc., etc.
How do I get into the right habit of eating well, when my taste buds are tuned to eating junk food, heavy meals and food I know is doing nothing for me, but I’m addicted?   Read the rest of this entry

Lessons in Live Food

Fruit and Passion

Eating live food doesn’t mean that you will sacrifice all those great foods that you have become accustomed to.  A taste for fresh and delicious fruits, vegetables, cereals and nuts is readily acquired, and a cleaner taste soon discovers a delicacy and sweetness in the raw foods that the highly salted, flavoured and cooked  foods never had.

Using Trauma And Stress To Your Advantage!



Stressed out!

Trauma might be a good thing after all!

After The Storm

Flooded Roads

On our way home through floods

I just thought I would add my perspective on dealing with the after effects of storms, floods, cyclones, fires, grief and loss.  Since I’ve dealt with all of these in some way, I know this for sure, the after shock, will set in soon, and that is when the real help will be needed.  Where will everyone be then?

Relaxing in Bliss

Disrupted sleep can influence your weight.  Hormones are affected by sleep.  Leptin and Ghrelin can influence our appetite.  Studies show that production of both may be influenced by how much or how little sleep we get.

Have you ever experienced a sleepless night followed by a day when no matter what you ate you never felt full or satisfied?  If you have, then you have experienced the workings of leptin and ghrelin. Read the rest of this entry

Habits and Change

The weight that you carry right now is a culmination of habits (good and bad) and lifestyle choices.  Some of you reading this will only need to make minor changes to get back on track to health and wellbeing, while others will need to make life changing major changes.  The good news is, change is inevitable, it’s part of life and the bad news, well, there’s no bad news really, just different news.
