Are Your Adrenals Fatigued? The Dangers of Stress

Are your Adrenals Fatigued?   Recently I’ve had a many new clients coming to me for “MANAGING STRESS”. Even the local newspaper reporter sought me out for information on a feature about stress IN LAST WEEKENDS PAPER! (OMG the top photo is terrible!!!!) Recently I wrote, Stress Kills! Find Your triggers and take action!  Often we miss the signals that our bodies are attempting to provide us.

HOW You Eat is Just As Important As WHAT You Eat and WHEN!

HOW You Eat is Just As Important As WHAT You Eat and WHEN! Many of you have heard me talk about food designers before. They have the task of creating the perfect ratio of fat, sugar and salt in a food product that will create opiates in the brain to have you craving more! People already restricting themselves find these cravings overwhelming and will often berate themselves and feel like failures, believing they have no willpower or motivation. This often leads to comfort or emotional eating, which of course is only feeding the cravings. People try so hard to eat healthy,

Get Your Body in Motion to Still Your Mind – Elemental Movement Meditation

I’m excited!! separate monthly Recently I spent a long weekend up in Maleny (near gorgeous Montville and Mapleton on the Sunshine Coast) at a practitioners retreat: learning, sharing, brainstorming and dancing….. yes that’s right, DANCING!! It wasn’t your normal kind of dancing – it was so much more than that. Initially I thought, hmm, I’m not so sure I want to do this in front of a bunch of people I don’t know! BUT… once we began I found myself quickly forgetting about the other people struggling to find their own personal rhythm; some swaying timidly, others clearly uncomfortable and

EASY Nutrition for Health & Weight Management

Colour Your Plate and Get Healthy! I’ve always loved chopping up fresh fruit and vegetables and creating different blends of slop in my blender! Over the weekend I decided to experiment with Kale. Here’s a pic of chopped Kale in my blender.. KALE is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. A member of the cabbage and broccoli family, it contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced) – a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties. Blending is a quick and easy, nutritious way to incorporate a variety of nutrients, vitamins and minerals

My Hungry Heart – emotional eating

My Hungry Heart - emotional eating

 What are you really hungry for? When I was overweight – no matter how much food I ate – the sensation of hunger was never far away. Every meal was hurried. I ate as if I was ravenous; quickly filling my belly to hide the evidence that I was a ‘pig’. I would spend most of my time during the day thinking about food while trying to avoid it.  The hunger made me crave all the wrong foods… and they always somehow made me feel better. I didn’t always feel ‘well’ after eating those foods, but for a short time I didn’t feel

Losing Weight for Health

Lose Weight – Your health depends on it. If you are facing health issues such as chronic inflammation, diabetes, cardio-vascular risks, auto-immune condition, hormonal imbalances, insomnia, depression, cravings, high blood pressure and arthritis – then you need to seriously attend to the extra kilo’s you are carrying around. Quite possibly you are well aware that you have a problem needing attention. Very possibly you’ve been aware for some time but have resisted admitting that fact to yourself for whatever reason. You may know already what it is you need to do, or you may lack motivation to change your habits because

Body-Image

When you look in the mirror, are you seeing yourself as you ARE or how you FEAR? To be a confident, self-assured and secure woman in today’s society, we’re challenged to escape the media bombardment we face at every turn: glossy magazine pages of digitally beautified models, reality TV shows with people looking anything but real, print media and radio marketing convincing you of the latest fad diet that you really need to try… Even on a good day one phrase, one word, one look can be all it takes to dent the hard won self-confidence of the woman in

Emotional Eating

Emotional Eating

Are you thinking, breathing and fearing food 24/7…? What we think and how we feel often dictates what we eat, if we should eat and when we should eat. This may lead us to console our emotions with food we don’t really want or need but that temporarily might make us feel better. Without a healthy self-image or balanced lifestyle, this may be enough to permanently chip away at your self-confidence and further influence your emotions. In the long term, it may be enough to spark a greater issue with food and body-image, leading to disordered eating. Do you reach
