How to Use Activated Charcoal

Hello there,This week I am going to share with you the amazing health benefits of charcoal and how to use it in your everyday life. I found this topic incredibly hard to condense down into one blog; I own a book that is dedicated entirely to charcoal remedies and there is just so much to say on this topic. Charcoal expert John Dinsley states, 'Charcoal is history, it is poetry and art and it is science. Much more than this charcoal is cleansing and healing for man an nature'.Charcoal has a powerful ability to adsorb toxins, unwanted chemicals, bacteria and poisons. Adsorption is the binding of...

Hello there, This week we talk about good fats, which are an essential part of our diet and our wellbeing.

Why Eat Clay + How to Make a Clay Face Mask

Hello there, I have been meaning to write about edible clay for a long time. I tried my first bentonite 'clay shake' about 10 years ago at a place called the Sanctuary in Koh Phangan in Thailand. At the time I was working for a bank in Hong Kong and decided to take myself off for a 7 day detox/cleanse on this small Island off Koh Samui. Among other things, the cleanse involved 4 detoxifying clay shakes a day, which were bentonite clay mixed with psyllium husk and watermelon juice. It might sound disgusting and it does take some getting used to but I have say after my 7 day...

7 Chemical Free Ways To Be Summer Ready

Hello there, For many of us just the thought of stripping out of the winter layers and having our body on display can be an anxiety inducing experience. The pale, prickly legs must make a debut and nicely insulated mid section needs to squeeze into a swimsuit and even a bikini. I was confronted by this recently when at Bondi while visiting with my daughter, I was completely overdressed and ill equipped for the beach. It suddenly dawned on me, summer's arrived and I'm not ready! As you know I'm very passionate about what you put on your skin and in your body. I believe smearing yourself in checmial...

Body Beyond Birth + Caramel Protein Ball Recipe

Hello there, This week I'm delighted to have a Q&A with the lovely Jackie Steele and Becky Dyer from Body Beyond Birth. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to trial the Body Beyond Birth program over the last couple of months. From the day I logged in I realised this program is so much more than an online resource to help Mummas get back in shape. The website is a panacea of amazing educational videos (i.e. a pelvic floor workshop you can do from your own living room), delicious recipes from their nutritionist and dietician, workouts specifically designed for your capability, meditation and more. I know after having...

Nutrient Dense Food for Women that Workout

Hello there, My sister is training for the Noosa Triathon, along with approximately 8500 others who will take part in the 3rd largest Olympic distance triathon next month. Growing up we lived at the top of a huge hill and I would always be the one running ahead of my sister, telling her to keep up. Oh how the tables have turned - every time I see her lately she's in full body lycra and has been for a 50km bike ride, a long distance run or has swum the full width of Bondi twice (I'm exhausted just hearing about it)! She looks buff and I feel incredibly Mumsy...
