Winter Wellness

This winter has brought about a significant increase in Influenza outbreaks as well as upper respiratory infections, thought to be related to the abundance of mould spores in the air due to the recent floods. It is crucial to look after your body during the colder season which is why I decided to post a 'Winter Wellness' page to encourage your body to thrive during this season instead of succumbing to the common cold. Just click on the link on the right of this page.

Enjoy

Belated response to 2011 Budget!!

After reading over the budget for 2011 in regards to the Health sector, the government must be commended upon its initiatives for mental health care over various socioeconomic backgrounds. Speaking as someone who has personally sought assistance made possible by this financial intervention, it is comforting to know that many more people can have access to such a valuable aid in dealing with emotional and psychological stress. Hopefully this initiative creates a continuing awareness for those who are suffering silently and recognizes mental health issues as less of a taboo subject in this day and age.

The beginning..

This is my very first post on my blog, which I am extremely excited about as it is a beginning for my discussion and thoughts on relevant public health issues, nutrition and preventative health as well as sharing recipes and my passion for staying healthy.     
  
Everyday we are faced with choices as to what foods and meals we consume, our activities and our attitude towards obtaining optimum health. As a Naturopath, I appreciate the therapeutic qualities of wholesome and nutritious foods and aim to spark genuine interest and educate on the importance of good nutrition and living well. In a society overwhelmed with takeaway and fast food outlets, it can be difficult not to succumb to its convenience however the rewards of eating well are endless. From glowing gorgeous skin to having good quality sleep and boundless energy, it's easy to appreciate the benefits of incorporating nutritious foods in every meal!

I am looking forward to sharing with you, thanks for reading!
