Whats the best plan to stay well right now? 

How are you feeling now? really do you feel balanced and stable in your body? Or are you feeling somewhat vulnerable and compromised? Its autumn time and we are right in the middle of metal season. Its when you feel sluggish, unstable and its a time of change in  weather plus  our personal lives. Lots of people are feeling flu like symptoms, unmotivated, sluggish and slowing down with our metabolism setting up for wintertime hibernation.

This is  a time to slow down, go with the flow and allow your body the time it needs to relax, tune in and rest.  Its the time to eliminate what no longer works for you. Cutting through the rubbish and keeping the goodness. Great time of the year to clear out your wardrobe, cupboards and storage areas. Get rid of that old stuff and make way for a clear space for yourself. Simplify everything.. bring it right down to the basics!

The herbals that we like at this time of the year are nourishing, clearing, boosting and generally energising and metabolism enhancing. We need these qualities, so taking echinacea is my favourite. It works on the whole body. Ganoderma mushroom and all of the mushrooms generally have a great effect at this time of the year as they clear your liver and boost your immunity. Nettle is perfect to boost your blood and increase red blood cells function, allowing clear circulation and really oxygenated blood.  Kelp, seaweeds and lots of mineralising herbals are our favourites because they support and nourish your whole body.

The foods to eat are loaded with garlic and onion.  Lots of boosting and strengthening qualities that help you stay healthy. Have you made our garlic extract yet? we have several versions of garlic extractions with the best being our aged garlic formula. This one is easy to make at home and great for the whole family to use during wintertime.  The recipe is in my book The Wellness Zone available online for download. Or come to our workshop on Sunday and make some yourself!

Talk with us if we can help you with herbals now. We offer free phone services through the week, so call up and chat for fifteen minutes about your health and let us get a plan in place,  If you want a more consolidated session then you can book  a Skype consult ( with free freight for any herbals you want) or come to Maleny and see me for a classic naturopathic clinic in our dispensary and meet the crew!

 

Herbal Body therapies

Herbal skin care is so healthy for us to do on a regular basis. How do you look after your skin? what do you do on a regular basis to create nourishment from the outside?

This is metal time of the year, Its when the weather gets cooler and drier. Its when you become tireder and have less energy for the things you were motivated to do in the warmer months. So with our skin, lets get it nourished with herbals and oils, soak up the minerals and allow your skin some great boosting. The herbals for this are calendula, allow vera, comfrey, chickweed, papaya, avocado, olives and aromatherapeutic oils that bring in antimicrobial and immune boosting qualities such as rose, lavender and jasmine.

Nourish your skin daily with some herbal oils and also make sure you get lots of hydration on your skin with warm pea treatments, such as sauna to detox the cells,  exfoliation hydro therapies such as flu body exfoliation in mineral salts followed by a full hot bath.  Also nourishing your skin everyday before sleep with good monounsaturated oils. lush and delicious skin therapy at home is easy. We have a workshop coming up on July 29th in Maleny if you are interested.

Our Food Lotus system for your digestive wellness!

THE FOOD LOTUS EATING SYSTEM FOR YOUR DIGESTIVE WELLNESS

Hello my friends. Ok today I want you to meet my food lotus system. Its simple and doable and a great way to eat. I like to eat this way and it really helps my body stay healthy when I do.

This is my ideal way to eat and its how I recommend you eat too. Its simple, natural and if you do this most of the time, you will be healthy, resilient and strong.

Let me introduce you to my lotus flower eating system! 

Think about a lotus flower and how it opens up in the day and closes down in the night. When it opens in the morning it takes in little nourishment, then as the day progresses it takes its full fill of sunlight and openness when the sun is at its highest…. then you can eat your main meal and then as the day goes to night the lotus closes off again, so you would stop eating again for the night and then wait a full 12 to 16 hours before you eat again.

Combine this divine timing with a balanced diet and you can join me in eating like a lotus flower!

 By balanced diet I mean that you can follow my personal food lotus system

50% is  biggest section which is fresh fruits and vegetables, this also includes complex carbohydrates from plant based sources such as breads, pasta and rice!

next I have quality protein sources  which is 30%  such as tofu, tempeh, eggs, fresh local meats if you eat them, fresh local seafoods if you eat them, protein powders. cheese, yoghurt,  hemp seeds, specific protein combinations in vegan and veg diets that make up complete protein. Nut milks, milks generally if you drink them. All of these are optional depending on your personal choices.

Then we have oils and fatty acids which can be about 10 %  like chia seeds, monounsaturated fatty oils, plant based essential fatty acids, omega 3, 6, 9 in ratio of two x omega three to 1 x other two. coconut oils.  you need fatty acids in your diet… so make it 10% including what you cook in and what you add to salad dressings, sauces etc. Don’t count your protein choices such as cheese in here please. make this section the good oils!

And we have our favourite herbals which make up 10% of your diet. This is all those fresh herbs from the garden and conscious additions of medicinal herbals and spices to your diet.  Yes I’ve added in the turmeric, garlic, ginger, chilli, basil, parsley, thyme, rosemary, spices, and all those wonderful things we add to our diet to keep us healthy. And, if you read my books you will know what to do with them all and turn them into awesome healthy vinegars, oils, salts, honeys etc etc…. so delish.  This also includes herbals in teas and drinks. Herbal extractions come into this part too. Adding little shots of herbals into your meal plans and taking some before dinner as a digestive bitters, taking some before bed to help you relax, taking some in the morning to strengthen you body.. its important.

Now the raw to cooked ratio changes with the seasons , as as the weather gets colder many of my patients are sitting at a 50% raw to cooked ratio at the moment. Keep that up as long as you can and have raw fruits and vegetables each day making up 50% of your diet. You can decrease this as the weather becomes cooler or on really cold days and go into the warm nourishment of cooked foods.

Personally I am always at my physical strongest when I have regular detox days and fasting days in water, after I finish the detox and return to a really good diet, I feel stronger and more resilient than before the detox. Its pretty simple to work out why that is… its because I have moved out toxins and freed my body to feel clean and clear. That is physically, mentally and emotionally.

Having a balanced diet that feels good to you. Make everything you eat a feel good food. It can be nurturing, nourishing, delicious and clean food. Keep away from packaged foods, things that come in plastic wrapping and especially those dreaded preservatives and additives that make fresh food last ten times its normal shelf life. Be super careful with breads that you buy and also anything thats been on a long transport chain. I know this advice is fairly normal all year around, but right now we want develop our resilience and fresh is best!

Make your portion sizes reasonable and not too big. Think about your fist clenched and thats the size of your stomach when you have chewed your food and swallowed it… thats not that much. so you are better eating smaller portions and more often.. then you get to enjoy every mouth full and your body gets to assimilate it better, making awesome healthy cells.

Hope you enjoy trying this way of eating. Please chat with us about his system when we see each other next. Or you can book a Skype consult with me online if you are not living near Sunshine Coast Australia.

Immune boosting vegetable coconut soup

Immune boosting vegetable coconut soup

Hello and welcome to my blog, 

Today I want to share with you my recipe for a delicious warming soup.

Immune Boosting vegetable coconut soup 

What you need 

Your favourite soup pot.  I’m using a 8 litre pot for this ratio of ingredients.

Enough fresh raw vegetables to 3/4 fill the pot when they are peeled and cut into bite size pieces. These include carrots, pumpkin, onion, sweet potatoes, peas, cabbage, broccoli, beans, whatever you have in the garden.

5 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes or chilli to taste

1 tablespoon Golden Zing Tea formula. Contains turmeric, ginger and black pepper.

1/2 cup of cashew nuts or nuts of your choice.

3 tablespoons monounsaturated oil such as olive oil or macadamia nut oil.

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons sea salt ( or more or less. salt to taste)

1 litre of coconut milk liquid.

How to make soup

Heat pot on stove with slices of garlic, olive oil, sea salt, golden zing mix, chilli, and allow to soften for a few minutes. Then add the peeled and cut up vegetables all together and stir.

Allow the vegetables to simmer in the pot for about fifteen to twenty minutes, stirring occasionally.

Then pour in the coconut milk making sure it covers the vegetables. Add in the cashew nuts and apple cider vinegar at this stage too.  Place a lid on the pot. Turn the heat right down so its gently simmering.

Allow to simmer on the stove stirring for about one or two hours. You can leave it simmering for up to three hours before you eat this soup, it just gets softer and more yummy.

Add more flavours you like to this soup if desired. And also add freshly sliced shallots, parsley, mint and fresh herbs when you serve.

Today we are serving this soup with some delicious warm cheesy gluten free muffins and having a glass of wine too!

How does this soup boost your immunity?

The garlic is super healthy as we know it purifies blood and strengthens the body, its a cardio tonic and also is a super antioxidant.

Most vegetables have immunity in themselves. Yes its true, plants have their own immunity to fight bugs and diseases and when we eat vegetables we are generally boosting our own immunity too. The  autumn winter vegetables choices of brassicas, such as Brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli and rocket all have immune boost and antioxidant properties. Onions are my favourite with silicylic acid that pulls poisons and foreign particles out of the body cleansing and strengthening the body. When we add chilli we are striping poisons such as viruses, and toxins from the digestive tract every time we eat chilli. We are also boosting our metabolism which in turn has a faster reaction rate to toxins and that means when we have a faster metabolism we have a faster reaction time with our immune system. No sluggishness. Ginger and turmeric have super antioxidant effects and help the liver cope much better with detoxification. Every vegetable soup you make is a winner. The cashew nuts are some good protein in there to help balance the soup and adding coconut milk is a winner for flavour, strengthening and nourishing your body and protecting your cells from damage as we eat this antioxidant rich soup.

The benefits of understanding your body and herbal medicines!

Hello and welcome to my newsletter. 

Summertime is clearly over, I love to  talk seasons with these newsletters, seasonal foods, medicines and lifestyle choices.  My work comes from many cultures and I have been privileged to be born with an inquiring mind, so I am always open to learning new ways to be whole and healthy! Its my pleasure to share my work with you and I am grateful that you are reading this newsletter again. We have many people subscribing these days, and whether you came from our free clinics in the markets or a festival, an event where I presented, a clinical consultation or if I dragged you in here at some point because you are my friend I want to say a big Thank you for making time for my writings and also my workshops and events. We are here to help you so please call us and chat, email or come to the markets or festivals, these are all free services and our pleasure to offer you.

Its metal time now… yes that autumn and it means the season of boosting your immunity, getting strong for winter and cutting off the old dead branches on those trees ! In more ways than one. Its time to get rid of our bad habits, our over indulgences, our summertime diet is over. Now we are into the colour white and the bitter foods. Its seaweed time,  antioxidant time and white food time! We can use heavy metal chelators in our diet specifically so that we are able to clear the debris and toxins out of our cells and clean up our act!

Good old garlic… so healthy, delicious and full of wholesome medicine. for strengthening the body, for immunity, for parasites, cardiovascular protection and keeps your blood strong and clean! 

The White tiger is a symbol of this season in traditional Chinese medicine. So is the mirror  for self reflection and reflection of our environment and the sword for cutting away those dead branches. Yes, you guessed it. Fierceness in letting go of the non essential. Instead of spring cleaning, we are autumn cleaning. But in a different way. Its a great time if the year to fast on water and juices for a weekend! Its a wonderful time of the year to stoke up your body with garlic, onions, white foods, and foods that help boost your body making you stronger and having the attitude of fierce healthiness! Having the discipline in your mind to  clean up and clear out negative patterns, old outdated beliefs. Its the time of the year to forgive your misgivings, to let the past go and start afresh with a good attitude towards life.

The body organs associated with this season are the lungs and the large intestine. So lets go for exercises and practices that strengthen the lungs, such as loads of pranayama breathing. walking or jogging briskly and breathing deeply into the lungs. Also adding minerals in your diet such as iron to help move the red blood cells laden with oxygen through your beautiful body.

The large intestine loves to be released of parasites and also to be strengthened with antioxidants at this time of the year. The pockets in the large intestine play an important role in toxicity of the body,  we can reabsorb toxins back into the system or  eliminate them with our faeces. So  I recommend that you eat dark foods that are full of antioxidants here, like beetroot and berries and dragonfruit. Really rich foods in antioxidants. Betaine is the active in beetroot and specific to the large intestine.  The red ones are specific to this time of the year in many cultures as the seasonal foods are our indicator. Also pumpkin seeds are full of anti parasitic qualities.

Think antioxidants.. think red… Lycopene is an active in cooked tomatoes, and this time of the year is perfect for tomato soups, sauces and those preserved and sun dried tomatoes you made in the summer time. Isn’t that beautiful… the foods we traditionally preserve in one season for the next are the ones we need! Lycopene is very good for your blood and your blood responds to it so well  transporting  all over the body. Super immunity support. 

The herbs I recommend for this time of the year from our dispensary to your home care kits  are perfect support and a great aid to your wellness! 

Herbal immunity blend for the whole family. Take a small dose each day to school or work in your water bottle and beat the seasonal infections by staying strong and having a stronger physical resilience.

Iodine metabolism blend. For balancing the metabolism and helping you reduce heavy metals in the body. Take  your therapeutic dose each morning and help eliminate those extra kilos that gather over the summertime. This blend also helps with digestive balance and goes deeply into cells to help you clear out the poisons that may have accumulated in the whole body, it really gets into the lungs and pockets in large intestine removing poisons and strengthening your body.

Herbal Parasite Blend Remove parasites and help your immunity by lightening up the load. There are parasites in all systems of our body at times and this is the perfect time of the year to say Bye Bye!

ADVOCATING YOUR OWN WELLNESS AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR BODY AND HERBAL MEDICINES

Feel wholesome, well and comfortable in your own skin. This is our  natural state of being, its where we came from. the healthiness and nurturing of our mothers wombs and then into this clean beautiful world where we naturally resonate to eating fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and natural foods. We feel more at home in natural green environments, our stress levels drop and our body feels more intrinsically peaceful and whole. This is our natural state.

So its natural then that we will feel healthier and more balanced when we eat a plant based diet and when we look at our food as medicine.  Its  our best absorbed medicine and its also the most natural way to stay healthy as we live with a good diet and know our body. This is a great time to redefine your diet. To talk with us about how we can assist you in dietary refinements that happen in little steps so that its easy and fun!

Knowing our body is something we need to explore more as we get older!  To do this we need good exercise,  fresh air and a good diagnostic system to understand whats going on and how to treat minor symptoms as they come up. Why not have a regular health check? Having a regular health check is invaluable when it comes to prevention of chronic disease and reducing your risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes, obesity, and auto immune conditions that can be epigenetic and created by the environments we live in.

My books The Wellness Zone and The Magic of Food as Medicine are great resources to help you refine and develop your health plans. They are $5 each online as ebooks. On my web site. Or you can talk with me, either via Skype, or via our free clinics when we pop up in The Eumundi Market every Saturday or at Festivals and events.  If you want to chat about your health you can always call our clinic between Tuesday and Friday and thats also a free service as we can assist with Herbal solutions and general naturopthaic advice. Its our loving service and we are here to help you. Our resources are very broad and our networks wide. So call us when you need that extra bit of advice or herbal solutions.

THERAPEUTIC YOGA TO HEAL YOUR WHOLE BODY

I’ve just had the privilege of attending some really great therapeutic training with Gwyn Williams on Zen Thai flow  and  the 5 Chinese elements. This work involves designing your daily yoga practice to incorporate the seasons and the specific meridians and body organs that are related to that season or more interestingly in the therapeutic model… if you are having issues with specific organs or body systems then you are able to do your yoga practice focusing on these ailments and using yoga as very specific therapy. Its great. You may know that my work involves Zen Thai shiatsu body work and yoga, I did the full training with Gwyn and this was my second round on this  yoga flow training.  I’m looking forward to bringing some of this into my next workshop on May 25th in Maleny.

What if the power to heal was all around you in the natural world?

Since the dawn of humanity, people from across the globe have used what was in “nature’s pharmacy” to heal themselves — botanical treatments, healing tinctures, and medicinal remedies from the herbs, flowers, and flora that surrounded them.

While the advances of modern medicine are miraculous, as we’ve pursued the newest frontiers of science, we’ve too often lost touch with our biological and spiritual connection to nature, and the healing power that comes through our plant allies.

This is why I’m passionate about inviting you to join me for The Plant Medicine Summit, where you’ll discover how plants can purify, rejuvenate, and evolve us — as well as sharpen our minds, extend our lives, and deepen our connection with this blessed planet.

Hello and welcome to my newsletter / blog.
WISHING YOU AN AWESOME DAY FILLED WITH WELLNESS LIGHT AND JOY! 

Some self healing is great today 
I wanted to make you a little mantra/ meditation  today… about health and wellness and talking to your cells in your body… 
Simply stand or sit still. Take three deep breathes in and out through your nose and feel present in the place where you are.
Now make the intention that you want to be well for something specific. It could be something like. ” I am feeling healthy and happy through my whole body” or it could be specific like ” I am healthy and happy in my liver” or any part of your body ” my heart” if you are heartbroken etc/
Gently rub your hands together and place your hands on that part of your body or simply embrace yourself in a big across your shoulders..
Close your eyes and take some long deep breathes again holding hat part of your body….
Say ” I am healthy and happy in my whole self… I send healing and love to my heart? Liver ? etc” Your choice…. Sit/ stand and keep doing this gently with yourself for at least three to five minutes….
Then stop and gently let go of the body and get on with your day…. 
Do this daily…. Lie in bed and do it before sleep. Add. to your self healing regime.

EVERYONE IS THE SAME… SENDING BLESSINGS ACROSS THE GLOBE
Its international womens day today! So that means we take a step closer to everyone understanding that women deserve education and a good life all over the world! Poverty and trauma are places where everyone suffers… and women and girls are often the last to be looked after and educated. Zonta International is an organisation that was set up in New York in 1919 and has been operated women for women ever since. Check out the great work we do and join us if you want to contribute to the betterment of women and children globally!

LETS STAY HEALTHY TODAY AND EVERYDAY!

This rain on the Sunshine Coast has kept the sunshine away and there is mould and microbes developing everywhere! How are you feeling? Have you got any signs of pathogens? are you coughing? feeling under the weather? have you got recoccurring viruses and yeast, fungal infections flairing up this week?

Antimicrobial herbs are ones that protect your body and go in and selectively destroy and remove pathogens that enter our body. These herbs are usually broad spectrum and work on bacterias, viruses, fungal, yeast and parasitic infection.  Herbs that are antimicrobial are clever and reasonably fast acting at the site of the pathogen and  help your body heal faster plus can  help stop deeper and more sinister infections from developing.

In a way these are preventative medicines, in another way they are acute medicines. They are to be used when you think that a pathogen has entered your body and are best taken at the first sign of an infection or outbreak of a virus. For example you are somewhere and everyone has the flu, or you have been on a aeroplane or in large building with air-conditioning and people are sick, or you just feel that old feeling of a virus reoccurring.

These herbs do not boost your immunity, they do not stimulate your immunity. They are herbs that will go in and selectively choose what microbes they want to kill and destroy and then act on those only. Thats why we mix several powerful herbs in our herbal antimicrobial blend. Sometimes you may want to take these herbals for a whole month or longer to make sure they get in and act on the body in a healing way to clear you of pathogens.

The awesome antiviral herbs are often awesome antioxidants at the same time and they usually have other actions that help protect and support your body healing processes.  Some examples are Cats claw, olive leaf, Chinese wormwood, paw paw, Lavender, lemon myrtle,  rosehip, cranberry, elderberry, Chinese wormwood, turmeric, ginger  and hypericum. These herbs are great when you think that a virus has entered your body and depending on the virus you will use different herbs.

This is a great time of the year to take antimicrobial herbs and make Sure that your liver is free of viruses coming into the winter months which allows you to have a stronger resilience to pathogens of all sorts.

Paw paw is one of our favourites and we make the extract in the dispensary. We mix it with Pau d Arco, cranberry, Chinese wormwood, turmeric and rosehips for a super powerful brand spectrum antimicrobial blend to deal with all manner of digestive, liver, blood and whole body infections and issues including candida yeast infections, fungal infections and common viruses and pathogens that you may be exposed to. If you have a reoccurring virus like herpes, or shingles than taking these herbs on a regular basis is really beneficial for your body as you will get less occurrence and less symptoms. Some times taking this blend will stop the outbreaks totally for the time you take the herbs as a daily tonic. We recommend 15ml per 60 kg body weight once or twice a day depending on the symptoms. Often we ask people to take four to five does of the herbs for the first three days to really get the work going and body healing strong.

This Papaya tree been in our back garden for a couple e of years and grew super fast out of the compost heap. Its lush with fruit at the moment and we do lots with paw paw to get healthy 

Make yourself some paw paw juice from the leaf if you are worried about any mosquito born viruses. yes thats right… simply juice the leaves and drink that bitter green juice 30 mis three to five times a day for two or three days. This is used traditionally as a treatment for many fevers that can result from mosquito bites. Its super antimicrobial.

Eat the fruit and make sure you eat those seeds. They contain Papian which is a digestive enzyme and helps you assimilate food much better. Eating fresh paw paw fruit daily is a great enzyme and will help with any stomach and small intestine issues. You will also be assisting in removing parasites from the digestive tract by eating fresh paw paw, add a little leaf in there  for super antimicrobial protection. IT also contains antioxidants, vitamin C and loads of micro nutrients.

 

Crushing paw paw leaves and adding them to salad dressings, soups and sauces is a great antimicrobial addition to your diet through the autumn months to help reduce pathogens in your body. Its easy to add antimicrobial herbs to your diet everyday as a great preventative health measure. Adding a taste of bitterness with those antimicrobial actions.

Boost your immunity and stay strong with our decoctions

Hello and welcome to my newsletter/ blog. 

We are all feeling the end of summer now! The days are getting shorter and the weather is cooler. Little hints of winter sneaking in to the days and nights.

This is the time of year for us to get strong. It the season of metal in traditional Chinese culture and its the season of boosting ourselves in all cultures. The time to make sure we are ready for the colder months with a fully nourished body, fitness and good health. We want to look after ourselves and make sure we don’t have any illnesses to carry into the winter months when there are many pathogens about in the air.

One of the best ways to make sure we are strong and healthy as the seasons get colder is to ensure we are well nourished with good energy levels. This is done simply through diet and ensuring we get enough nutrient rich foods so that we are fully stoked up with the Agni, fire of digestion and life each day. We also can benefit from rest and ensuring that our energy levels are good. This is accomplished with good adrenal gland support using vitamin C in our diet. Vitamin C is one of my favourites and all through the cooler seasons its a great daily addition to your diet in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables containing this essential vitamin. It will help your adrenal glands recover and it will also act as an antioxidant keeping our cells strong and your body healthy.

There are many foods that will help boost your strength and immunity too. These are the antioxidant foods and the best immunity boosting diet is a diet that is primarily based on fresh local, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Please read my book THE MAGIC OF FOOD AS MEDICINE as your reference book to these beautiful immunity boosting options and how you can turn them into delicious recipes.

Yesterday I made a gorgeous decoction for one of our patients with andrographis. This herb is so versatile and its been used for thousands of years in both traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic Indian medicines. Its also a favourite across Europe and each country uses it in the same ways. Androgaphis is truely a kitchen pharmacy medicine that everyone can use at home. In fact I think it grows just about everywhere.

Andrographis is just great at this time of year , and me being me… well I want to share the info with you about this common plant…. it’s one that many people would call a weed….. and weeds are often the most potent medicines. Shifting subsistence agricultural communities have stayed healthy on this weed since we started walking this beautiful earth and many animals instinctively chew on andrograhis as part of their grassy and ground based green diet…. add it into your green drinks.

  1. Its bitter, known as the king of bitters and when you have bitter herbs, you get bitter blood. Bitter blood is a great way to flush viruses, poisons, infections, pathogens and unwanted foreigners straight out of your blood. Bitter blood is the blood that is the enemy  of your enemies! If that sounds logical… Put another way… if you have bitter blood you don’t get sick! Parasites, viruses, poisons that enter are swiftly eliminated and removed… this is due to its  bitter diterpenoid lactones which are the active constituent in many very effective bitter herbs that work so effectively.
  2. Cough relief, sinus relief, allergy relief.. Andrographis works its magic on these seasonal respiratory tract illnesses and removes mucous from the body easily.. it strips the mucous… thats always a plus when we come into cooler seasons. Just imagine your head cavity and lungs clear of congestion and toxic allergenic responses. Taking andrographis will help keep these pathways clear. It also swoops on any incoming pathogens through the respiratory tract and eliminates them. 
  3. Andrographis is a hepatoprotective.. that means it protects your liver as toxins are moving through and keeps your liver cells safe and acts to help eliminate the poisons from the body effectively. There are loads of herbs that have this quality such as milk thistle. However the beautiful magic about andrographis at this time of the year is it boosts immunity and acts seasonally! So you are moving the viruses and seasonal allergens through the liver and eliminating them whilst protecting your liver.
  4. Just to top it off its an immunostimulant.. yes it boosts your immunity and boosts your body into making more immune cells… this is done through several processes and andrographis is sitting there in your blood waiting to help….

I just love these qualities. 

Its the perfect herbs for this time of the year and its the perfect travellers herb too.  So no matter what you are doing to boost your immunity and to build your strength for the coming winter months. Now is the perfect time to plant some andrographis in the garden and get ready… or better still. now is a great time to pick some andrographis from the garden and make our decoction.

Heres my recipe for andrographis decoction 

This recipe is only good if you have fresh andrographis or dried leaf and stem. we are not using the roots in this recipe. 

Simply take two large handfuls of leaf and stem, wash in fresh water then  break apart with your hands.

Now put in a saucepan with 500mls of boiling hot water, 100ml of apple cider or coconut vinegar and 75ml of local honey. Add one teaspoon of sea salt.

Bring to boil and turn heat down to a simmer for 25 minutes.

This will have reduced the mixture to half original amount.

Allow to cool and then strain off and drink the liquid at 30ml per adult twice a day.

Keep reminding liquid in sealed bottle in fridge.

We have andrographis that is ethically and organically sourced in our herbal dispensary if you would like some of our extractions. We make the super medicinal aqua ethanol extraction of this herb and have it available for you as a straight herbal extraction or in our famous COUGH COLD AND FLU RELIEF which is pretty awesome at this time of the year. It contains andrographis, echinacea, thyme, nettle and liquorice root. Pretty well an all around beautiful tonic for the whole family. The very first sign of weakened immunity, coughs, colds and flus this is the best solution for a quick and easy prevention. Its also the tonic to take when you have a cough or cold or flu…

Herbal Parasite Cleansers that take the toxins out as well!

Welcome to my blog,

Super excited that we have been busy with planning our schedule for 2018. We are at Bali Spirit Festival, Byron Spirit Festival, The Planting Festival and also Qld Garden expo.  Please call by and say hello if you are these events and also check out the programs to see my presentations and workshops. 

However the most profound new exposure of my work is with the Plant Medicine Summit on March 21st 9.30am our time for my interview with David Crow on The Signature of herbs….. yes… I’m on my first USA online summit. If you get the upgrade on this summit you can download my book The magic of food as medicine for free!

I have one workshop planned in the first half of the year. Friday 25th May in Maleny $80 for a day of wellness strategies with me including a plant based lunch. 10am till 3pm. Limited spaces so book asap if you want to come along. Its my only workshop between now and the second half of the year. We are also at Eumundi Markets every Saturday. So call in and see us for our free clinics and to get the best deals on our body products.

Herbal Parasite Cleansers are so necessary with our body on a regular basis. Did you watch our latest  video  with this blog yet? Please make time to do so as you will be opening your mind to my concepts on parasite cleansing as we guide you through the various energetics and physical options!

Parasites are determined to be present when you either feel like they are there mentally? Think they are there emotionally? know they are there physically? or are told they are there by someone else and know it to be true in yourself! 

.It doesn’t matter what the parasite is, it doesn’t matter how it got there… all that is irrelevant.. what matters is that it gets out of your body, field of energy and that you are able to be free of this inhibition on yourself. Parasites tend to cling on to you, they excrete their own toxins and project these onto you, they do not care about you and are like an epiphyte on a plant…. they grow with you and stay with you and multiply on you!! Parasites are something that will make its home in and around you until you get too heavy with its poisons and you have had enough! yes enough is enough!

With out being disgusting…. lets just take the example of maggots…. Now we all know that maggots are the precursor to the fly and that maggots are a great source of protein when eaten, We also know that they love warm conditions and love to grow on food as its rots in your compost bucket. We also know that maggots can be great medicine when they are placed on open wounds and bandaged up to act as a living poultice selectively eating the toxins from your skin and stopping infection….. We also know that when you eat food that has been blown on by a fly and that food is in your digestive tract fermenting in the sluggishness of poor digestion…. we know that you can breed maggots in your small and large intestine and they can live there happily. So many ways and so many parasites can come in you all the time. If you are strengthen the fly ridden food you just ate may passthrough the body harmlessly too and there will be no maggots growing in your belly! These are just examples… options.

So, the story doesn’t stop there with the opportunities that parasites can have on us! In our body theres a lot of choice with air we breathe, what we touch and put in our mouths, what we physically connect to, who we connect to, how we connect to what we connect to! And in my world of parasite cleansing, we are also looking at energetics and the etherial unseen and un researched parasites that can get caught up in our minds, our emotional body and our luminous body! These are the crappy thoughts, the crappy situations, the crappy scenes we get caught up in and the connections that we allow to stay with us that are fundamentally as toxic to ourselves as the most lethal poison…. yet we let them sit there and stay tuned into our vibration.. why?

You can be more open to parasitic infections and invasions when you are vulnerable, sick, weak, undernourished, over nourished, upset, emotionally overwhelmed, going through transitions in your life and when you are not following your truth and inner guidance systems. All of these things make us more open to the allowance of toxins on many levels. 

In our clinic we don’t believe in taking parasite cleanse like its a special thing you are doing! No, we work everyday with this aspect of wellness. Many of my patients will take herbal parasite herbs three or four times a week, yes, every week as part of their wellness profile. Happy to talk with you about that one too, send me an email. The foods we eat are super important too. Look at my books for this info. They are here as ebooks online for $5 each.

Please check out the you tube clip that goes with this blog and connect with us via email wellness@medicineroom.net to see if we can help you remove those parasites from your life with gentle herbs and easy solutions such as the foods we choose daily and the rituals we make for ourselves in all our healings and lifestyle choices.

Physical cleansing involves herbs such as black walnut hulls, garlic, Chinese wormwood, cloves, spices, silica and regular digestive tract cleansing so that there is no putrification in your digestive tract. It also involves getting deep into the liver and removing viruses, fungus, yeast, bacterial and all sorts of congestive matter such as hormones, heavy metals, toxins and environmental poisons.

Emotional cleansing involves releasing what doesn’t do you any good anymore, it involves resolutions, understanding of self and others, compassion, generosity and allowance to be aware of your emotional parasites and toxic issues and use rituals like water, bodywork, meditation, prayer and aromatherapeutic to clear the lines and release the pressures of these parasites letting them go away from your sphere of life.  I find my  medicines work so well for this, they are the Lavender, sage, thyme, rosehip, lemon grass, flowery emotional and antimicrobial beautiful essences.

Mental removal involves forgiveness, grace, understanding and meditation. It can involve affirmations, talking, releasing and sharing whats going on in this field for you. Mentally mantra and mudras are great as the mind releases its attachment to the monkeys within, and the chatter becomes a more productive and less toxic dialogue.  You can see your mental toxins with your awareness.  The super powerful herbs like St Johns wort, Melissa, Bacopa, and oats work well on these levels.

I wanted to share this valuable information with you as we head out of the flames of summer and heat into the metallic hues of autumn coolness and the letting go of all things toxic. Its amazing how each season brings with it its own nuisances and styles of cleansing. The beautiful metal cleaning really involves boosting our immunity in the process. So, more about that later.

Can we help you feel better in your life? Can we help you develop more energy, increase your metabolism, deodorise your organs and cells? Feel better. Talk with us about getting rid of summertime sluggishness and lifting your energy and passion.

We hold our free clinics at Eumundi markets every Saturday and we are there to formulate herbal medicines for you! We also have our hand made body products that you can also buy online!

Importantly the skin is the organ we want to keep in pristine condition at this time of the year. I have been using our rich herbal skin nectar and our rosehip and chamomile nectar on my skin all summer now. The sun factor protection  is about 15 to 20 and my skin is feeling great. No sunburn and lots of great hydration.

You can purchase our nectars online now for $39 each 100ml or two for $70. Freight free where ever you live!

Summertime flames of wellness!

 

This is pure summertime  SE Queensland , Australia. We have rain now, sultry skies, big ocean swells and scorching hot days for weeks on end… only to be relieved by early evening thunder storms, riddled with lightning and the clouds beconing to fall on us, as they carry the heavy load of an almost wet season.

The foods we need to eat at this time are grounding and earthing foods, foods that support our energy and allow us to rest and recover our digestive systems , as the almost monsoonal load plays havoc with our liver, sweating and hot, sticky and muddy, slushy and releasing poisons from our system at an alarming rate. and most of it leave through our skin.

Yes sweat is the purest form of summertime detoxification. Our bodies biggest organ the skin is right at home in Summer, it just keeps releasing those long term poisons and then it launches itself into the coolness of the ocean, river…. any water that is cold is welcomed…

This is another blessing of Summertime, the cool water on our body sending the blood rushing to the organs, released the peripheral circulation, offers the release,  as we let go of swelling and inflammation , releasing these to the organs within and offering a pure flush..

Be grateful when you sweat, be grateful when you are able to open your body and offer the joints movement, the organs a flush and the skin a good cleanse. Its very different to the spring time cleansing we so often talk about. I haven’t  made a you tube this one yet… its because we have been busy sweating and dipping into cold water… doing our yoga and allowing our bodies to stretch into the openness that heat offers.

Herbs that cool and allow us to feel refreshed in the summertime are often the coolest and deodorising digestive herbals, think about peppermint tea, spearmint in salads, basil in pesto, delicious mint in cool lemon drinks, yummy fennel teas and fennel seeds sprinkled in your stir fries. Internally we offer our body a boost with some echinacea root and ginseng, to help pull our energy up.  Increasing our vital energy. We need to pull our energy up now, as the heat tends to sink our gravity and we feel heavy, so much for heat rising! not always. Adaptogenic herbs are always good at this time the year, as we balance all organs and systems. Think withania, Siberian ginseng and astragalus.

We just had our two day event HIGH VIBES ON THE MOUNTAIN in Maleny. Wow, its the first time I have underwritten a two day wellness, dance, yoga and music event. We ran across the four venues in Maleny and had so much fun… It was exciting and it was a progression and extension of my beautiful work I do with the team at Woodford Folk Festival.  I can’t express enough gratitude and love for the people who came and gave their energy, time, resources, skills, love, fun, joy and passion into this collaboration. We had 26 presenters, 39 x 90 minute acts, The days were filled with health giving love, cooking masterclasses, astrology, yoga, dance and connection, with Saturday evening opening the way for Dubarray and OKA to get everyone moving to the beats of pure blissful dance and music!  It was two days of great connecting amongst a group  of like minded people!

We are doing it again next year. So, come to Maleny on January 18, 19 and 20. If you want to go on our database you need to email me highvibesonthemountain@gmail.com ( We are not as sophisticated as the Medicineroom yet on our web site with online blog sign ups) The 200 plus people who did give us your emails we sent our first blog yesterday with a survey!

Hello and welcome to my latest newsletter and blog. We’ve been in the Woodford Folk Festival for the last few weeks and really enjoyed our presentations and experiences @bluelotuswoodfordia ( facebook page) . Its such a pleasure to see everyone at our beautiful medicine room clinics too.

For those of you who have been travelling with me through the years and developing with us in many ways as we strengthen our formulations and developments, events and services, I want to share with you that in ten days we are holding our inaugural two day HIGH VIBES ON THE MOUNTAIN in Maleny.

I am so grateful for my connections and networks through our mother festival Woodford Folk Festival, and my sister festival Byron Spirit Festival for your constant and consistent support and encouragement through all of my innovations and ideas. Thanks to Eumundi Markets for all the support in this project as our home market! Thanks to my son Adam Finney aka Barking owl productions for this video!
