We live in a world of environmental pollution – everything from toxic chemicals to radiation. Furthermore, we have moved from a nomadic lifestyle of eating 600 hundred different plants – which is still typical for today’s rare nomadic societies – to a sedentary life and a diet seriously lacking in that level of variety of plant‐life
The body is a miraculous machine and when it is operating optimally, it can repair damaged tissue and cleanse dead material out of the body as well as foreign chemical pollutants. But NONE of our bodies are operating optimally because we are allowing them to be broken down on a daily basis
Whether its from the undeniable evidence of how toxic our water systems are. The (minimum) 79+ chemicals that our found on our supermarket produce every year. The nutrient lacking soil its growing in. The pollution in our air and our oceans. The toxins and chemicals in our skin care and cleaning products. The exposure to blue light and addictive effects of technology that drains our nervous system. The medications we take. The alcohol we consume ….. this list goes ON AND ON AND ON.
Its not our fault, its the world we live in. We have been groomed and conditioned to live this way and so even opening our mind to these things is against our brains capabilities - we automatically go into fight or flight when we hear it because we cant imagine changing.
How many people do you know with mental health issues. With skin issues. Bloating issues. Chronic illness. High stress. Lacking sleep. Low energy/caffeine dependant. How many people do we know with AT LEAST one poor health condition?
THINGS HAVE NOT ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY.
But we are all become so addicted to instant gratification and quick fixes and bandaging the issue that we CANT BE FVCKED doing the work (even when the health and happiness of our loved ones is at stake).
All is not lost. I thought it was for a while there. I was pretty fvcking scared tbh. But humans are pretty awesome. Those who aren’t trapped in fear INNOVATE. They find ways, change the approach. Work with the problem and make it easy and affordable to get through the discomfort that is DETOXING and through to the other side.
Whether you need to detox your life of physical toxins, emotional, environmental, its gonna get a little worse before its gets AMAZING. But thats why I have connected the dots and pulled together the resources to make it alot easier than it was for me over the last decade.
Sadly - most of you wont decide to finally invest in getting yourself better until you hit rock bottom. I see it time and time again and I wish I could shake you all (as I wish someone had done to me) to show you theres a way to avoid the rock bottoms.
We say we would die for our kids, our partners, for our family BUT we dont seem to be willing to create and live a truly healthy and sustainable lifestyle for them?
Or maybe you are ready? Is it time to start today? PM me for info on how to get started on the road to detoxing your life and changing your whole WORLD!
But why should you do it??
If your immune system sucks, your gut is broken.
If your skin is bad, your gut is broken.
If your bloated and have digestive issues, your gut is broken.
If you get anxious, tired, depressed and moody.... your gut is broken.
If you have aches, pains, difficulty recovering from sickness or injury, your gut is broken.
Basically if you dont feel really healthy and energised everyday.... then your gut is broken. We live in a world thats been tearing us up from the insides slowly but surely and the evidence is clear in the emergence of countless new health conditions in the last 30 years, and we are at waaay past pandemic numbers.
And that even if you eat 9-13 portions of clean produce a day you will never make up for the nutrition you have already lost.
93% of Australian adults dont eat enough vegetables.
95% of Australian children dont eat enough vegetables.
89% of Australians age 65-74 dont eat enough vegetables.
Ive been learning about this AND using my body as a petri dish for the past few years and im constantly blown away by the results.
If youre in a space of struggle ask yourself, have you delved into gut health yet?? It will blow your mind!!!
Backed by research, proven by humans.
*THAT, is why i partner EVERYTHING i do with this worlds number 1 wholefood nutraceutical. What are they? They are the closest thing you'll get to getting the amount of nutrients your body needs to detox, to heal on a cellular level and to experience the self healing powers that our amazing human bodies actually have!
Side note: how great is this image of me doing camel pose with a camel 🐪 ?? Throwback to adventures through the magical land of India.
Do you know how many of us find happiness an unfamiliar sensation? So many have forgotten what pure happiness feels like that when we start to see it coming, our brain convinces us to run in the other direction (how silly is that!?)
Our brain will actually convince us to find all the possible reasons why there’s no other option but to run. It convinces us that, to move towards the feeling is unsafe because it’s so unfamiliar.
I’m here to tell you now, don’t run! Lean in! Don’t allow your mind to convince you otherwise. It feels like flying, it feels like being wrapped in a furry blanket, like diving under and out a perfect wave, feeling warm lips against your neck. Like looking into the eyes of your newborn child. Like being held in safety by the love of your life. It feels delicious!
You don’t get the epic view without the climb so get your boots on baby! Can you recall the feeling of pure happiness? Do you know ...... it’s your right to to be happy? Its ok to be happy.
Ive not been showing up on stories and lives for a couple months now as I usually do, and theres a few new faces in this space. So I thought I would do a fun facts about me for those who may not know me well yet:
1: Im the oldest of three girls and daughter to a travel entrepreneur father and a nurse turned holistic care mother.
2: Ive logged more self discovery time in my 32 years than anyone I know, I thrive off growth opportunities and so I seem to attract ALOT of them haha.
3: My highest value is CONNECTION. Connection with self, connection with others and connection with our natural world. So when I connect I really connect - if thats not for you, thats cool.
4: I use to eat a family block of chocolate a day… thank god I dont do that anymore!
5: Ive travelled to 17 countries across 4 continents (some multiple times)
6: Ive got this weird love for Tony Robbins.
7: I use to get chronic reproductive pain, pinched nerves in my back, chronic pain in my knee, hips, shoulders, neck and face. Chronic fatigue, cystic acne, IBS and chronic bloating, I became bulimic, depressed and suicidal and more…. Thank god thats all over now!
8: When im in nature, I feel like anything is possible and everything is going to be ok.
9: I run a successful online business empowering men and women back to good health - all naturally.
10: I can sing like Whitney Houston and always hit that high note baby!
Id love to hear some things about you, here or in my PMs - What are your dreams? What are you struggling with? Im putting together new talks about self development and mastery and I need your help! What can I talk to for you?
So here’s a nice long list of things that cause our nervous system to breakdown and create more stress in our body:
- Fear of death
- Fear of being judged (the two main types of human fear)
- Negative trigger words
- Exposure to blue light (unnatural light)
- Processed food
- Coffee / Caffeine
- High intensity exercise
- A massive ‘to do’ list
- Letting problems bottle up / not communicating
- Shallow breathing
- Being on technology for long periods
- Staying up late into the night
- Drugs or pharmaceuticals
- Shame or embarrassment
- Unprocessed/ unreleased anger or sadness
- Processed soy
- Non-organic produce
- Tap Water!
- Not getting sunshine on your skin
- Never being creative
And all the intricacies within these things. So looking at this list, how many can you stop doing right now? Theres many that are easy and some that aren’t - the first step is the awareness the next is the action.
Find ways everyday to be kinder to your body, your mind and to others. Go get em tiger and have a peaceful day inside and out <3
Did you know that, even if you eat 9-13 portions of clean produce a day you will never make up for the nutrition you have already lost? We have to do our best each day to consume and absorb as much good food nutrients to ensure our body doesn’t break anymore than it already has.
Reasons why i love these wholefoods.
1. I am getting in the phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, minerals and vitamins from 33 varieties of pure, pesticide free, non GMO, clean fruits, veggies + berries on top of my daily intake. Every. Single. Day.
2. They are third party tested & cleared from ANY kind of contaminant, not only pesticides but mould, bacteria, radiation, chemicals etc.
3. They help feed the good bacteria in our gut ~ when our guts aren’t right > inflammation in other areas of the body can occur. Having a healthy gut allows your immune system to use less energy + get stronger.
4. The antioxidants and phytonutrients are 100% bioavailable + absorbable by your tum ~ meaning you are absorbing ALL OF IT! Which doesn’t even happen with food or synthetic vitamins.
5. It’s the most researched nutraceutical on the planet. Independent, third party, randomised, placebo-controlled, peer reviewed in 37+ medical journals. A company who has spent 30 years proving the power of fruits + veg. All sourced from nature NOT manufactured in a lab.
Everyone (outside of mainstream) had always told me gut health was they key to all types of healing & I’d learnt so much but I’d also learnt I couldn’t afford to live the way I needed to, to even attempt to heal. So when I found these babies it just made so much sense - Thank god I trusted my intuition.
Two years NOT SICK and counting! 💪🏻
Take my hand darling one
Let us dissolve into the deliciousness of all this natural world has to offer us
Hands stained with blood from clawing our way out of places we never did belong
Let us find those hidden pools of clean fresh water and dive in without hesitation
Washing away the past, overcoming fear and limiting tricks of the mind that have kept us from our hearts desire.
Lay bare in the sunshine of this ancient land and be held by the red earth and all its power and memory.
Be surrounded by stillness and sweet sounds of silence, interrupted only by laughter of the one beside you.
Understanding that the journey still moves on and challenges will still arise
But the polarity of dark and light takes a back seat now to balance and joy and us.
Let’s roll the windows down as we drive fast down deserted highways, singing loudly to all the songs of the past - filling them with new memories of peace and playfulness.
Understanding that conflict will arise but simply to provide opportunity to expand. To go within and peel back any remaining layers of shame, pain, guilt or ego that linger from days of old.
Giggling softly through each uncomfortable moment of growth and ending each day with a long embrace in complete safety.
Moving slowly and intentionally towards the sunset, shifting and sliding as we skate down to the ocean to swim, with a spicy chai in hand.
This is the dream and the dream will become reality for those who chose it to be.
(Dreaming of spicy chai, a new skateboard and some warm weather adventures)
Happy work life is
A good relationship is
Becoming who you are is
So what is the advice for running a marathon?
1: Dont get hung up on your finish time - or your result against anyone else’s! Stay in your own lane.
2: Hydrate!! And take daily care of your body - without it you dont have much of the above anyway.
3: Prepare your mind not just your body - before anything else, you must find ways to be calm, safe, confident and in love from the inside of your own mind.
4: Dont fear breaks - sometimes you need to slow down or stop to revise, reassess, give yourself a pep talk and gather your thoughts.
5: Pace yourself! Whether you want to do ONE thing with your life or MANY, you have so much time to do so much - dont feel like you have to do it all in one year - and understand that getting good and getting to what you want takes time.... and that’s ok!
6: Know the course in advance - we can never know whats ahead for sure but we can definitely learn what the course looks like for us - and learn from those who have gone before us. Whatever you want to do/be/have - who do you know who has done it? How can you learn from them so you can know what to expect, to prepare for and to action?
7: Stick to your game plan - decide on the things that you want to experience in your life, be it many or few. Make a plan and stick to it. You may have to adjust the course, the actions, the approach or the players from time to time but if you keep changing your end goals you’ll keep getting no where.
8: Enjoy it! Life is fleeting, and maybe we have many lives, maybe we only have one but the point is that we HAVE IT, That is a blessing not to take for granted. How can you enjoy every moment of this life? The easy and the hard? We came here for it ALL!
The pill is promoted as an aid to symptoms of all sorts, however the effects of the pill are proven to incredibly detrimental long term. The pill shuts down the hormonal system completely and sends you into a very estrogen dominant state, it breaks down the microbiome and its classed as an endocrine disrupter.
“The body’s normal endocrine functioning involves very small changes in hormone levels, yet we know even these small changes can cause significant developmental and biological effects. This observation leads scientists to think that endocrine-disrupting chemical exposures, even at low amounts, can alter the body’s sensitive systems and lead to health problems.
Even low doses of endocrine-disrupting chemicals may be unsafe”.
That, is a direct quote from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
Coming off the pill, sucks. It’s a long and sometimes very uncomfortable process. Your mood can go haywire, skin too, cycle can be all over the show, fertility and general comfort of life affected. But on the other side of removing that toxicity from your system - comes balance and so much more.
For the last year I’ve been helping a number of women through this process. Being a sounding board for their discomfort, connecting them with as much support as they could possibly need and it’s a deliciously exhausting experience.
So grateful for all you strong brave women who are doing the work to prepare your bodies and minds for the best time of your lives. It’s a marathon not a sprint but it’s well worth it if you can 💫
