Everywhere I look, it seems people are drugging themselves up to the eyeballs. Whether it’s a cough lolly, anti-smoking tablet, new vaccination or serious medication, it appears our society has reached the point where we simply don’t think twice before ingesting something into our bodies – asking absolutely no questions first.Read More

I used to have a Kombucha problem. Which came to a head when my wife kicked me in the head and broke my nose. That’s also when I met my shaman, Edmund. Let me start from the beginning.Read More
When I pledged to take the empowered approach in response to my cancer wake up call, it felt like I was being tortured by having all of the foods I knew and loved taken away from me. Suddenly everything that had been a staple of my diet for the first 22 years of my life was forbidden and I was left thinking, “what the heck and I supposed to eat?” I had absolutely no idea how to feed myself if I couldn’t rely on bottles of flavour and “instant” foods.
Thankfully, I learnt that not only would I not starve, but that I would also be opening myself up to an entire world of foods that have amazing healing powers. Every member of the plant family has beautiful healing qualities, but these guys are my top 10:Read More
Believe it or not, but shielding yourself from the sun in summer is actually one of the most harmful things you can do for your health. I know I may cop some flak for saying something so “irresponsible”, but hear me out.
Vitamin D is the master key for optimal health, and the best way for us to receive vitamin D is by allowing our skin to soak it up via sunshine. When we avoid the sun at all costs, we are cheating ourselves out of this important element of health, and it’s doing us a disservice. A recent Australian study found that up to 58 per cent of Australians are deficient in the vitamin.Read More
When it comes to holiday destinations, I couldn’t have picked better places than Los Angeles and New York for somewhere to go where I wouldn’t have to worry about straying from my dietary requirements. From the amount of requests I’ve received to share where we ate in these locations, I know that heaps of you may be having the same idea.
So, here are my picks for eating an organic, plant-based whole food diet while visiting LA and NYC.Read More
This is an extra special book recommendation post because, for the first time, I am friends with each one of the book’s authors.

GUEST POST BY VIENDA MARIA.
For many years now I’ve been in the habit of observing my body. It’s undoubtably my greatest teacher in life as it continuously reflects the physicality of my emotions and thoughts. My body shows me what is going on in my world, both consciously and subconsciously, and invariably how to heal myself. I thank it deeply for this.Read More
I have done a lot of crazy shiz to heal my body and transform my life. I’ve eaten sea cucumbers, drank straight beetroot juice, injected myself with B12, crude liver and mistletoe, drank castor oil, put coffee up my bottom, put castor oil up my bottom, drank hourly juices, turned vegan, seen energy healers, seen psychics, seen crystal healers, had vitamin C IVs, became a yogi, and taken so many pills and potions that it’s impossible to count. However, there are three things that I’ve done that have had the biggest impact and brought me the most benefits.Read More

Did you know that food allergies can cause ear infections and that ear infections can affect your child’s speech development due to temporary conductive hearing loss from the fluid in the ears?
In addition to this correlation, there are even more findings in recent years of the connection between food and speech/language development.
