Welcome TO THE

From the beginning of time, humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground. But as time progressed, wearing shoes, standing on asphalt and sleeping on mattresses became the norm. These changes have disconnected us from the earth’s energy. This is significant because our bodies are composed of water and minerals, making electrons a necessity. The […]

In last weeks post, I discussed the foods and substances that both men and women should avoid before pregnancy in Part 1: Preconception Health 101: What to Avoid Before You Get Pregnant. Part 2 will focus on what to include before you get pregnant. Did you know that nutrition, stress and toxic exposure during preconception […]

Did you know that many women of indigenous cultures like the Kikuyu tribe – the largest ethnic group in Kenya – traditionally begin a special diet six months prior to marriage to prepare for pregnancy? (1). Pretty smart when research shows that certain birth defects can be traced to nutritional deficiencies prior to conception (2). […]

Sprouting is one of the simplest, cheapest ways to provide yourself with incredible home-grown nutrition in your own kitchen. Sprouting is like any other kitchen endeavour. It seems pretty daunting until you actually do it, then you’re left wondering what took you so long to try. With simple equipment that you most likely have in […]

It is helpful to think about the immune system, and most systems of the body, as something that we want to be balanced, rather than boosted. We can support a strong immune system with nutrition, herbs, lifestyle, and mindset. Now is a good reminder that it’s hard to “make up” for loss of health. Rather, […]

When I was 6 years of age I went to hospital with a split chin and came out sporting a rather fancy set of stitches, which my father laughingly compared to a darned sock. This is my one complete, preserved memory of him, which is not why I am telling this story. The real point […]

We are made up of a complex symphony of hormones – estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, cortisol, insulin, to name just a few. These chemical messengers must play in harmony with each other for us to function optimally. However, many of us deal with hormonal imbalances that lead to mood swings, brain fog, irritability, fatigue, skin […]

Our skin is our largest organ and a large percentage of what we put on our skin is absorbed by the body. Products that we use each day, from shampoo to body wash, to lotion and perfume, can impact our toxic load. To make matters more confusing, we don’t always know what’s inside the personal […]

You’ve likely heard the old adage: beauty begins on the inside. It really is true. More specifically, beauty really begins in the gut. I subscribe to a more functional approach to beauty that’s deeply tethered to nutrition and health. On top of that, how we navigate stress, environmental factors, rest and repair are critical elements […]

Habits are much more powerful than we realise. So often we act out of what we are used to, what we know, and what we have done in the past. They are the invisible architecture of our every day experience. Studies suggest that we repeat about 40 percent of our behaviour almost daily. Habits are […]
