Welcome to the new decade
This is may not be the glorious new year we’d hoped for. Regardless of where in the world you are, the news of Australia’s horrendous bushfires has no doubt reached you.
With much of the East Coast of country indirectly, if not directly, impacted by fire and trauma. My heart goes out to those in the fire-affected areas, and I want to do something tangible to help.
How I can help?
If you’re a first responder or your home has been damaged or lost, and would like some naturopathic assistance, please contact me directly to get a code for a free consultation.
I instigated this service after the Black Saturday fires in Victoria and am aware that when you’re in the thick of survival, you don’t always know what you need. Because of this, the offer for a free naturopathic consultation is open all year to those directly impacted, regardless of how delayed your reaction may be.

Others may be ‘worse off’ but…
It’s not a contest. No matter how little (or much) you’ve been impacted, all I care about right now is YOU.
From bushfires to cancer, I hear “(others) copped it worse than me” all the time. Why should up suffer and not get the assistance you need, just because someone else is suffering more? Naturopathic assistance to build your resilience means that you can in turn help them, when you’re feeling more able.
Dealing with smoke irritation
Are you experiencing headaches, red eyes, irritated sinuses or a cough? With many days reaching unhealthy levels of pollution, I’ve shared some home remedies to help ease smoke-related symptoms.
But if you’re really struggling with smoke and stress, right now you’re welcome to book an acute mini consult (regardless of whether you’re an existing or new client) to help ease respiratory and sinus symptoms or frayed nerves. Consultations are via Skype/Zoom and Individually prescribed herbs or supplements can also be posted around Australia, in conjunction with this acute consultation when needed.
Other ways to help in times of crisis
Overseas friends have asked how they can help. What fire affected communities need right now is cash. You can donate from anywhere in the world to the Red Cross, fire services and wildlife organisations.
Crises like this are also a good reminder, wherever you live, to donate blood if you’re able to (especially all type O negative unicorns).
Now for something completely different…
Zero waste pineapple hacks!
If you’d like to reconnect with your summer mojo, there are some zero waste hacks for using every part of a pineapple, including a mouth popping recipe for pickled pineapple cores.
Don’t forget to take care of yourself
In these uncertain times, your health is more important than ever. Build your resilience by starting the new year with a health check-up. I’m back on deck for 2020, consultations are available by Skype/Zoom or in person in Sydney.
