Hi and welcome!

sneezeWhen the mock orange is in full bloom we know spring is in full swing. And then the sneezing!! Spring is a time of change in our environment and as humans we need to be able to adapt to those changes. If your allergies are getting the best of you and you can’t enjoy this beautiful time of year, there are a few things you can try. Reduce your exposure to mould. Hydrogen peroxide and water easily removes mould and kills surface mould. Reduce sugars and processed foods, drink super green drinks daily, take antioxidants, use Vit C powder twice daily to increase your natural immune system strength and introduce a short course of probiotics for gut health. The bugs in the bowel rule us! Michelle Blum, our very experienced Acupuncturist, also offers advice and help each Tuesday at 398 Tarragindi Rd for conditions such a sinus, fatigue, pain management, allergies and much more. Her phone number is 0410 642 360. Wholistic and total health care is the way to go.


Forgetting is the new Normal – Time Magazine May 2008

super grannyApparently we lose between 30,000-50,000 brain cells every single day. So that is why we misplace car keys and reading glasses as we age! One of the contributing factors seems to be a build up of unwanted calcium in the bloodstream that negatively affects nerve signalling leading to cognitive decline. Heavy metals such as mercury, aluminium and cadmium cripple brain function and other body systems as well. However, a novel compound found in Jellyfish has been developed which binds to the extra calcium floating around the body thereby protecting the health of the brain and nerve cells! I have a few simpler techniques for preserving brain function should any of you wish to know. There still seems to be an over-prescriptive approach to taking high levels of calcium and Vit D supplements which is of great concern as this is neither a safe nor sound biological practice. Make a time to have a consultation regarding this very important issue and I promise we won’t be taking jellyfish capsules. Ageing and our brain function deserves more understanding and care.


Speaking of Simple Chemistry

Sometimes a home-grown product comes along with appeal, common sense and character and this is one. A client of the clinic has worked for two years on developing a great nontoxic powder/cream deodorant that really works! Her aim was to help women with breast cancer find something a bit different that had no aluminium which could be used safely. She has done it with her “Simple Chemistry” deodorant. Based on bicarb, coconut oil, shea butter, essential oils, tapioca with no parabens or aluminium, it even works on the sweatiest blokes and the smelliest teenagers. Visit Trial size now available. Give Erika a call and try some for yourself.


Quick Tip

Grill Your Meat Healthy...........if you love a bbq but fear the potential carcinogens that come with chargrilled meat, throw in some of the brassica vegs (broccoli, cauliflower or brussel sprouts) with your meal as they detoxify the mutagenic amines formed by heating meat, rendering it less harmful.


Men’s Health – A Snapshot

menI would like to treat so many more men in clinic than I already do as I believe they are missing out on some critical health care. Two nutrients that stand out for promoting male physiology are the minerals selenium and zinc. They are involved in hundreds of bodily processes including prostate health, sperm health and assisting fertility. They are also critical for everyone in the transformation of thyroid hormones, hence wellbeing, weight management and energy. I have noticed amongst male clients a big decline in sperm production/motility in their test results over the recent years together with lower levels of testosterone. Both are linked but both can be enhanced. Send the men to the best wholistic wellness clinic in Brisbane and have them properly and carefully assessed by us. Men need to experience their own testosterone to feel well and if it’s too low they don’t feel right within themselves. A simple saliva test or blood test will determine this level. Low testosterone in men can lead to fatigue, weight gain, depression and disinterest in life. Call the clinic on 073848 9800 for an appointment.


Happiness or Havoc..........don’t let Hormones rule your Life

granny cartoonHormones highlight important influences and markers that, if left unattended or undiagnosed, can leave you swinging from happiness to havoc. One of the most obvious markers is the redistribution of weight and weight gain. If this is you, then perhaps a simple effective saliva hormone test might give a clue as to the balance of your hormones. These are available through our clinic.

This is an answer from a high school science student some years ago:
Q: What happens to your body as you age? A: When you get old, so do your bowels and you get intercontinental. (Great, save thousands on airfares!)

Hormones do have a role to play in urinary tract health, bladder function and sometimes bowel health as well. A complete digestive stool analysis is a fantastic tool we use in clinic to determine the causes of bowel bloat, potential parasite infestation, constipation, diarrhea and dosing of probiotics. It is also a useful marker for bowel cancer issues. If you are having trouble in this area, please come in and talk with us as the gut and digestion need to be optimised to achieve ongoing optimal health and energy. You are only as old as you feel. We have a great new preventative treatment now available for urinary tract infections.

healthy eatingBrisbane Organic Growers are running their Organic Fair, Sunday 12 October from 9am to 3pm at 102 McDonald Road, Windsor.



Zonta is a fantastic women’s support group for the marginalised and disenfranchised of us in the community. They make the famous breast cushions for women who have had a mastectomy and these cushions are distributed to a few hospitals here in Brisbane. They also do care packs for women in need and I am putting a call out for any unused hotel soaps or normal soaps/shampoos/conditioners/ unused personal washers/unused toothpaste etc to be dropped off at our clinic. The Zonta ladies spend their spare time doing up beautiful gift packs and then send them to women’s shelters and others in dire need. Can you help? Please call me first to arrange a drop off time.


Fear is the door to the unknown. Unbolt that door.

doorA simple and gentle technique for releasing fear is as simple as breathing in while repeating silently, “I breathe in love” and “I let go fear” (on the out breath). Practice often through the day and before bed. Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility.............. See you in clinic! Keep happy.
