Thought about fasting? Never had I ever thought this could be a good idea until one night I watched a documentary with Michael Mosley and it got my mind in a spin. Everything I had ever been taught about hormone health was being thrown out the window when it came to eating habits. In the 80’s and 90’s we were taught that we needed to eat small and often, keeping our metabolism stimulated. Fast forward to the present and research supports a variety of ideas about how and when we should eat. What does it tell us. Never say never. Sidestep for a second if you will. What we know today, we will learn something new tomorrow no doubt, but in the essence of always having our finger on the pulse and adapting to each breakthrough we discover, it truly is a trap to become set in our ways. And there we have it – fasting. Who ever thought this could be good for our health and our hormones?

How’s this Princess Leia look alike poster from a IWD in years gone by!
Today is International Women’s Day – a day in which we get to celebrate being the more feminine counterpart of the humans populating this beautiful and awesome planet.
I took this from wikipedia;
International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women for their economic, political and social achievements.
As a woman in business, a influencer and educator in women’s health, I feel like I can say, I get women – plus I am one so that helps a little too – just saying. And don’t for one second get me wrong. Men are equally as incredible for their very own reasons and the sooner we can accept they aren’t any good at multitasking, the better. Enough said.
Busy mums, professionals – heck all humans UNITE! You are going to totally want in here. Does meditation overwhelm you? Too hard? Too boring? Too… time wasting? (actually none of these are an excuse but anyway…) In episode #75 we chat with none other than new author, TV host, mum of 5 and all round legend Bex Borucki (her book ‘You Have 4 Minutes to Change Your Life’ has literally just hit shelves! 4 minutes? I want IN! Her claim to fame – she found mediation through SHOPLIFTING! Um yes you read right. Time to listen in me thinks!

It can be a confusing world out there. So many different supplements, so many reasons to take them. Then, we’re told maybe they are a scam, they are ineffective and a waste of your good, hard-earned dollars. Yes, it’s super confusing and of course fear creeps in. Fear is not a great place to make a choice from, ever.
But since every single cell in your body requires nutrients to work and our soils aren’t necessarily able to pass on those nutrients any longer (because we’ve kinda sterilised them…), supplements have become essential for almost all of us living in the western world. Of course, oils aint oils, meaning that not all supplements are made the same. It’s important we consider how they are prepared, where they are sourced and manufactured. Usually a very simple test will tell you. You get what you pay for. There is a vast difference between many over-the-counter or supermarket brands as opposed to those you can get your hands on via your local practitioner. It’s not to say you shouldn’t take either but know when you need what. That is where the difference lies.
