G.R.O.W.I.N.G with Grace

“Each time courage finds its face in the middle of fear, the world grows” ~ Mark Nepo   It’s a funny thing, Growth… It can happen in so many different stages and phases throughout our life and we often barely even recognise it unless it’s blaringly staring us in the face, like for example, watching small children grow from week to week, or seeing a beautiful flower bud and blossom seemingly overnight. My point is that growth is occurring all of the time and it often goes unnoticed until it hits some critical bursts of activity,...

Adrenal Recovery Program!

The 4 week Adrenal Recovery Program   What is it and who is it for? The adrenals glands are a part of the body’s endocrine system and are responsible for our stress “fight or flight” response. They are the glands that produce cortisol – our “get up and go” hormone in the day time and adrenaline – which makes us run for our life or fight for our life with super human speed and strength. Adrenal glands can be compromised from long-term illnesses & disease like viral infections as well as stress and anxiety, all of...

Have you got THAT flu?!

Have you got THAT flu?!

Have you got THAT flu?! I’m really feeling for you if you do, and I’m also feeling for you if you have already had it and are still recovering …Yuck what a stinker! It’s got a reputation of being a 90 day flu, similar to influenza A, accompanied by fevers, aching bones, snotty nose and if you’re really lucky it might even land in your chest and give you a nice productive cough with lots of phlegm. Then, it seems to disappear and then creep back up on you, just as you think you are getting better, reducing your energy and forcing you...

P.A.I.N!

How to handle Pain! What is Pain anyway? The Oxford Dictionary gives two definitions of pain; Physical suffering or discomfort caused by illness or injury Careful effort; great care of effort.   The Pain Australia Organisation defines pain as; “…influenced by attitudes, beliefs, personality and social factors, and can affect emotional and mental wellbeing.”   As you can see, there’s a few different ways to interpret pain.  I am certain every single person reading this will have their very own experience of pain, the...

A.N.X.I.E.T.Y

A.N.X.I.E.T.Y.   Even the word itself sounds exhausting! Defined by the oxford dictionary as;   “A feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome”   No wonder anxiety can be such an uncomfortable sensation to experience: the impending feeling that something isn’t quite right and the uneasiness that you can’t put your finger on, the worry that doesn’t seem to be able to be curbed… Yep exhaustion is usually what most people are feeling by the time they...

Blood Sugar Baby

Blood Sugar Baby…..(I’m singing that Red Hot Chilli Peppers song!) So what is Blood Sugar anyway? I’m glad you are interested, because this is a topic that every Australian should be aware of, as it is related to a health condition called diabetes, which causes insulin resistance and inflammation in the entire body system. In 2015, diabetes was ranked as the 6th leading cause of death in Australia, so looking to blood sugar regulation as a preventative health measure is important.   Blood sugar refers to the amount of blood glucose...

“Are You Getting Hooked?”

“Are You Getting Hooked?”

What does “getting hooked” mean anyway? Let me put it this way: Is there something that you think, feel, do, say, eat, choose or (fill in the blank) that you can’t quite control or that you feel may sometimes control you? Well this is what we call ‘getting hooked’. In the Dharma (which is a Buddhist philosophy), getting hooked is called ‘Shen Pa’ and it refers to anything that can seemingly take over our thoughts, feelings and actions, without our full consciousness. It can be anything from reoccurring or obsessive thoughts,...

Food as Medicine

How do we make our food become our medicine? Well lucky for us, we can easily access whole “real” food in Australia, which is what I consider medicine! Although there is certainly a lot of food currently available in Australia (and the world for that matter), that isn’t exactly what I would call ‘Medicine” as well! So what constitutes food being medicine, or not? Let’s take a bit of a closer look at this. Foods that are Medicine are usually defined by the following qualities;   It comes from the...

What is Integrative & Functional Medicine?

Well this certainly isn’t a new concept however this terminology may be new to you, so let’s break it down.   Integrative Medicine (IM), like the names suggests, allows for all qualified practitioner’s within the health care industry to interact and communicate about their treatment protocols and insights about the clients that they treat, as long as they have the clients consent.   The manner in which the specific practitioner uses their expertise will vary with each practitioner, although the holistic treatment of all of the...
