sweet darkness

When your eyes are tired the world is tired also. When your vision has gone, no part of the world can find you. Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognise its own. There you can be sure you are not beyond love. The dark will be your womb tonight. The night will give you a horizon further than you can see. You must learn one thing. The world was made to be free in. Give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong. Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.…

editor’s note

Hi again. How are you going? I hope as I write this note that you are keeping well and keeping a close eye on your health. Over the past 3 months, since I last wrote, I have had a couple of my own health issues to grapple with, which have luckily been relatively minor. Because I do take a lot of care of my self, and pay a lot of attention to what my body is telling me. Yes. I do practice what I preach. And I am constantly amazed at how many people don’t. The thing is this. It is all very well to read as much as you can and to gain knowledge. But then you do actually have to do it. This is by far the hardest…

five smoothie mistakes

Smoothies are a fantastic and easy way to get a big dose of nutrients in the morning. They can be made in less than five minutes and taken on the go making them super easy to fit into a busy morning routine. Recently smoothies have been making quite a comeback because of their reputation for helping people to lose weight and improve their health. The problem is many people are making mistakes when they make their smoothies, creating a drink that is not only unhealthy but contributing to weight gain! Lack Of Protein Many people find themselves feeling hungry minutes after drinking a big smoothie. This may be because they forgot to add protein which sustains energy and keeps hunger at bay. I recommend adding around 15g of protein to smoothies. This…

your skin microbes are as important as your gut microbes

The discoveries made by the Human Microbiome Project have made it clear that healthy skin is host to trillions of microbes. These microbes permeate deep into the skin structure and work with your cells to perform the complex chemistry that keeps your skin radiant. Your skin microbes have been shaped by millions of years of co-evolution and your current environment. Studies on hunter-gatherer skin have revealed that the modern lifestyle has not been kind to our skin microbes. The best estimate is that we have lost more than 30% of the microbial partners that we once had. Some contributing factors include: overuse of antibiotics, high C-section rates and chemicals in cosmetic products. Probiotics are live microbes that are good for you. Probiotics can shift the skin’s ecology to favour a…

arthritis isolating. debilitating. destructive.

While most Australians might know a relative, friend or acquaintance living with arthritis, few are completely aware of the debilitating and isolating consequences that come from living with the disease. Canberra resident, Janine Monty, was an active and ambitious 36-year-old when she was first diagnosed with various forms of inflammatory arthritis, including mixed connective tissue disease, rheumatoid arthritis and undifferentiated spondylitis. It was a development that would eventually dismantle her life. “I used to be really fit and active – I used to run 5km a day just for fun. I was a web-developer and had great contracts. Life was going really well,” Janine explains. “Once the arthritis took over, I couldn’t do what I used to, and I wasn’t so much fun anymore. Eventually, my marriage ended and I lost…
