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....

Thriving this Winter

May 29, 2018

Only three more sleeps and we Welcome Winter! And for many the dark mornings and evenings, cold and often rainy and blustery days are not something to look forward to. But on the bright side… tis the season of open fires, scarves, hats & gloves, slow-cooked casseroles & curries and warming soups & stews. It’s time to embrace the cooler months by taking time to nourish our bodies with seasonal, wholesome meals and nourish our connections with people by sharing these meal....

Strong Body, Strong Mind

February 13, 2018

I’m a huge believer in the mind body connection, that the power of our mind and our mindset has an influence on the physiology of our body. Conversely, I also believe that a strong body influences the state of our mind, our mood, our thinking and our choices. For example over the Christmas and festive season it is wonderful to celebrate with family and friends with festive foods and alcohol; to relax our routines and to rest and rejuvenate. But come the end of January and start of Februa....

Healthy Body – Healthy Mind

September 13, 2017

After a long, cold Winter and with glimpses of Spring appearing, for many, thoughts are turning towards a transition to a healthier body and thus a healthier mind. Our mind is intrinsically linked to the health of our body. If you have become dependent on comfort food during the cooler months which is full of sugar, unhealthy fats and high salt, then every cell of your body has been fed these less then optimal foods resulting in suboptimal performance. This also includes your brain cells which m....

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 we can learn from elite athelites

January 27, 2016

In keeping with the current Olympic theme (and that amazing hurdles heat run by Sally Pearson last night) I thought I’d explore today the best food and nutrients we can take daily as well as optimum pre and post workout fuel. A lot of us “non-elite” people workout to stay healthy, improve our energy levels, to lose or maintain weight, to relieve stress and to keep our mood and hormones stable and optimal. So if you are in this category and not working out for more than an hour than....

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....

Weight Loss vs Fat Loss

June 13, 2012

When thinking about implementing any kind of weight management program, a distinction must be made between fat loss and weight loss. Many low-fat, calorie-restricted diets produce disappointing long-term results mainly due to the excessive loss of muscle mass that occurs as a result of this type of diet. When muscle mass is lost, it results in a reduction in metabolic rate (i.e. the ability to burn calories) and increases your likelihood of putting it back on. This effect is often observed in yo....

Take Control

April 30, 2012

Channel 9 news recently reported (16/4/12) that each year 80,000 Australians will get the flu. 15,000 of these flu victims will end up in hospital with a further 2,000 deaths. We have noticed in-store and in our clinics a much higher influx of clients and patients with colds, flu, gastro and viruses… and winter hasn’t even started yet! The thing to remember though is that the flu is a virus that has been around for thousands of years and every year, at about this time, we are at higher....
