Unlock the Secret to Living Your Best Life

October 9, 2018

It’s easy to spot those living a life of passion and purpose – they are the ones full of energy, vitality and enthusiasm. They’ve identified what is important to them, what inspires them, what gives them meaning and purpose and they have aligned these values with how they live each day. For many of us though, life has lost its lustre and the busyness of our everyday and the stress, anxiety and a lack of balance is often an underlying factor. We’ve lost sight of what’s important to u....

Energy, not Time, is the New Currency

September 28, 2018

Most of us are time poor, with lots to do and not enough time to do it all We all have 24 hours in a day, so how is it that some people seem to have the time to do  the things that are important to them, never seem rushed, frazzled and exhausted and when they are with you they are very ‘present’. Yet others rush through their days, not really living in the present as their focus is not what they are doing right now, but on the next thing. Thus, they are in fact skimming through life, no....

Spring Resolutions

September 3, 2018

Spring has well and truly sprung and there is clearly a shift in energy, outlook and mindset. After a long, cold Winter and with glimpses of sunny Spring weather appearing, for many, thoughts (and actions) are turning towards a transition to a healthier body and thus a healthier mind. During Winter, we inherently gravitate to more dense, hearty meals which may mean a tendency to over-do delicious carbohydrates and sweet treats. If you have become dependent on comfort food during the coole....

The Lost Art of Convalescence

July 26, 2018

I like to talk about the idea of convalescence this time of year as we see so many people suffering from ongoing viruses, coughs and colds that take many weeks to resolve. Did you know that Australia is now one of the nations that work the longest hours in the world? The relaxed image of the easy-going Aussie would seem a thing of the past. The pressure we feel from our workplace or family or most importantly ourselves has us continually ‘soldiering-on’  We see ourselves as invincible and ....

Are you Living a Life of Purpose and Passion

May 23, 2018

In our industry educating, prescribing, and imparting professional knowledge is what we do to promote change and help people to get well. And whilst it is so very important to get the correct information, and the latest research and professional advice, there is still something amiss. Because although we are getting great results with helping people restore their health when they become unwell, we’re often not getting long-term, sustainable results. And this is reflected in our Healt....

Are You Prepared for an Amazing Winter?

May 11, 2018

With this sudden cold blast, our thoughts turn to preparing ourselves for Winter. Media reports are predicting that it will be the coldest on record and already we have noticed a high influx of clients and patients with colds, flu, gastro and viruses! So I chatted to Kate Loftus, one Mammoth’s consulting Naturopaths, and I’d like to share with you her amazing insights, expertise and passion for the healing powers of natural medicine and healthy lifestyle practices. This time of year, Kat....

Are You Ready to Make a Change?

January 30, 2018

“I’m sick of feeling like this” is a common mantra I hear this time of year. And to be honest I’ve found myself utter those same words. What we are really sick of is the extended festive indulging and the way it is making us feel. Now is the time to make a change. If you want to embrace 2018 with Optimum Health, Vitality and Energy then it is up to you to choose to do things differently... and the expert team at Mammoth Health are here to help you, support you, guide you and mo....

Diets Don’t Work! So What Does?

January 17, 2018

If you have followed me long enough you will know I’m not a big believer of diets (unless of course you have a diagnosed condition such as coeliac disease or fructose malabsorption etc). Diets set us up to fail because they are not sustainable over a life time. Removing foods forever is a big ask and very difficult for the mindset. I can’t imagine to be told to never again indulge in chocolate or Christmas pudding or fresh bread or a magnificent pasta dish. Whilst our intentions, motiv....

Vitality Challenge 2017

September 25, 2017

It’s about this time of year, with a hint of spring in the air that many of us have a strong urge to do something about the way we are living. Many of us are feeling the effects of the long winter lifestyle – too much comfort food, not enough exercise, extra kilos creeping on, not enough sunshine, feeling below par, run down and becoming lethargic, stodgy and unmotivated. More often than not this feeling is a result of our modern lifestyle - we’re all carrying a toxic load! Any health....

Are You Ready to Make a Change and Start Living Your Best Life?

April 26, 2017

We all want to Thrive. We all want to Flourish. We all want to Live a Good Life. We all want to have the energy to pursue our Passion, our Purpose, that thing that we were each born to do. But to thrive and flourish… we need to have good health - good physical health, good mental health and good emotional health. Health is basically the resource for thriving and flourishing. And we already innately know this, yet we are so often ‘stuck’ in our current cycle of day to day, that we f....

Something is Missing! (Part B)

Something is Missing! (Part A)

March 27, 2017

There’s something missing – and I’ve been searching for it for a few years now. And to be honest, this has been frustrating because I’m very much an “action” person – I like to think of an idea, research it and implement it immediately. So this journey I’ve been on, this internal struggle and search for the missing link, has taught me a good lesson. It has taught me patience. It has taught me to think deeply. It has taught me to clarify my values and to not settle for anything ....

Life is a “Do it Yourself Project!”

January 23, 2017

Life is a… “Do it Yourself Project” I like to share this story about this time every year because, if you are anything like me, I need this gentle story to remind me that it’s time to re-focus on my health… to realise that if I keep indulging in festive habits my health, my mood, my sleep, my work and my waistline will suffer. It’s time to take back control of my health and enjoy the benefits that optimum health brings. “An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his emplo....

What Does Success Mean For You?

July 13, 2016

Some of you may know that I have just returned from an extended break overseas. And it’s amazing how the complete removal out of your everyday routine can bring a little clarity – it allows you that rare gift of re-evaluating your values and the way you want to live your life. I worry about the current trend of constantly ‘pushing’ ourselves to succeed – to relentlessly stretch our boundaries, our comfort zone and the constant need to strive and reach those ever-accumulating goals. The....

Emotional Resilience Strategies

March 8, 2016

‘To laugh is to risk appearing a fool To weep is to risk being called sentimental To reach out to another is to risk involvement To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying To try is to risk failure. But risks must be taken Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The people who risk nothing may avoid suffering and sorrow, ....

The secret to Clean Living lies in its simplicity… a diet based around the notion of eating foods in their most natural sta....

It’s Time to Break the Habit

December 23, 2013

The great thing about Christmas and New Year in the Southern Hemisphere is that it falls in summer. And summer for a lot of us means holidays, sun, relaxing, and lots of socialising with treasured friends and family. It is a time of freedom from strict routines, of sleeping in, eating all the Christmas chocolate and leftover pudding, lazy days reading and snoozing on the banana lounge and generally taking it easy on ourselves. It is actually very important to do this from time to time – to rep....

Life’s an Adventure!

February 24, 2011

Yesterday afternoon we farewelled our younger daughter Molly for an adventure she has been so looking forward to. She was accepted to be part of the crew on the Young Endeavour, sailing for ten days from Williamstown to Hobart. She had been counting the months, days and then hours and it has been nothing but pure excitement on her part. She had been feeling little fear or nervousness in her anticipation but just pure excitement for the challenge of the unknown. It was so great to see and hard no....
