A Personal Account of Stress
I think for a lot, if not most people who end up being Natural Health Practitioners; in whatever Modality. The path begins with desperation in dealing with their own health crisis.
Yes there is a seed or interest in knowing; but being unwell and not getting better seems to always be the clincher.
Believe me; I have had my fair share of stress. I’ve suffered from PHYSICAL, CHEMICAL and EMOTIONAL stressors in many different forms for a majority of my life. Some stressors I was aware of and others I had no idea existed. Continue reading CHRONIC STRESS! How it Damaged my Health.

People come to see me for many different reasons; but mostly because of a chronic health crisis. Part of this crisis usually involves this new client asking for help in coming down or off of their current prescription medications.
Frustratingly… Sometimes this requires that I must involve my clients GP.
Most clients find their health status has not improved as they were lead to believe it would by being on the drugs.
Yes, their blood pressure or their blood cholesterol may have been chemically lowered (with the cause not even a discussion), but overall their health status has further deteriorated. Continue reading My Obligation Is To My Client! I Am Working For Them!

What is Type 2 Diabetes?
When carbohydrates are eaten the body breaks them down into simple sugars that enter the bloodstream; as a result the pancreas releases insulin.
Insulin is a hormone that allows the body’s cells to absorb and use sugars from the blood for producing energy.
When the body does not make any or enough insulin, or utilise the insulin correctly, blood sugar (glucose) levels rise. High blood glucose or Hyperglycemia is a symptom that characterizes diabetes.
Insufficient insulin production and / or resistance to the actions of insulin can cause diabetes to develop.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Continue reading DO NOT Ignore The Seriousness of Type 2 Diabetes
Feeling Unwell ? Here’s Something to Ponder
OK.. So someone is feeling unwell… your first thought “I must go to the doctor” Off you go without second thought. You arrive and tell the doctor your woes.
He or she doesn’t really listen or have any real solutions. There is a very good chance though, for your troubles you will be provided with a script.
You will then go directly to the chemist and cash your script. You are somewhat happy now because you have a solution… a pill (to masks your symptom/s) and you begin to feel better.
Mission accomplished… Right? Continue reading Going to the Doctor? Whats Your Expectation.. A SCRIPT?

Sun, Sunscreen & Children’s Health?
Instead of learning to love and respect the sun; kids today are being taught to cover up and beware “as it is dangerous”.
Its a crying shame that kids are coping the brunt of this exaggerated misconception and as a result fallen victim to the sunscreen deception.
I cringe when I see well-meaning mothers smothering babies and small children with sunscreen.
I greatly urge all mothers to rethink their chemical sunscreen for a more natural product, or at the very least be pro-active and research ingredients and/or opt for a hat and shirt instead of a chemical.
Or, do what every other animal does on the planet when the sun is strong; sit in the shade or under a tree.
