A Gut Feeling: How Probiotics affect kids, high performance athletes and diabetics

probiotics

I started looking into probiotics when I was researching how to get my son off ADD medication naturally. My son was 9 years old, when he was diagnosed with ADD. His learning difficulties were impacting his self-confidence and self esteem at school because he felt like he was ‘dumb’. He was sad and angry and I didn’t know what to do to help him. I found it extremely challenging to put him on the medication Ritalin knowing that it would affect his physical health but with very little support from the school, and very little knowledge what to do otherwise, I felt like I had no other choice.

How to Create a Balanced Life: Secrets to having a Beautiful Life

How To Create a Balanced Life_ Secrets to Having a Beautiful Life

If you work, you are in a relationship or you have kids, chances are you are struggling to feel balance in your life. Australia ranks 30th out of 38 OECD countries for the number of people working very long hours and 33rd for the amount of time devoted to leisure and personal care. That’s a pretty poor scorecard.

The ability to successfully have a balanced life, to balance work, family commitments and personal time is critical not only for your wellbeing but the wellbeing of everyone one in your household. Working excessively long hour’s means that you have less time for the things that bring joy and happiness to both you and the people you love. You have less time to spend with family and friends, you miss important events and it can leave you feeling demoralised and burnt out.

5 Quick Tips to Pattern Interrupt Your Monkey Brain

5 Quick Tips to Pattern Interrupt Your Monkey Brain

This is so relevant to me right now! I’m totally out of my comfort zone, putting myself out there in ways I would not even consider possible 12 months ago but it comes at a cost. Every time I take another step into the unknown, my monkey brain goes into fight/flight mode, my stress levels skyrocket and my health starts to deteriorate before my very eyes. I have woken up having heart palpitations and I feel myself trying to implement more “rules” in my life so I can regain my internal feeling of control.

I could easily let this spiral out of control. That is why I have been using a few tools to pattern interrupting myself to bring me back to center, reduce my overall stress and improve my health.

So, I thought I would see if I could make life easier for the people out there who want to make and amazing Christmas feast for their families without the hassle of working it all out for themselves.

Stress Free Christmas

I love Christmas. It’s a time of year where I really reflect on the joy that my partner, family and friends bring to my life. One of the things that I love most is the food and drinks. I am a total food lover and I get the most enjoyment and relaxation out of making creations in the kitchen.

Understanding the Gap Between Fit & Healthy

There was a time in my life where I used to have a cigarette before going on a 3km morning jog because I felt like it opened up my lungs and made me breath easier. I especially loved my post run smoke because it felt like the hit of nicotine was stronger when I was out of breath. 

I was fit. Fitter than most of the people I knew at the time but was I healthy? Most definitely NOT.  

Nikki has chosen to share both her and her brothers stories about their relationships with health and fitness.  So many people say these words together like they are one and the same. They are NOT.

There just seems to be times in my life when a particular topic just keeps coming up over and over again. At the moment, that topic is biotics. Not just pre or pro but anti as well.

I have put together a short instructional video on re-batching and flavouring your kombucha brew.  

Natural Sun Safety Tips – Get Ready to Get Back Out in the Sun

Natural sun safety tips

I learnt how to care for my skin from my Grandma. She is a very lily white skinned English woman who came to Australia when she was about 10 years old. She prided herself on her beautiful soft white skin. Grandma grew up and spent most of her adult life in far north Queensland either on the coast or out in the dessert. She loved the outdoors (she is too old now to get out). She had a beautiful big flower garden that she tended nearly every day to grow flowers for her church. So she was out in the harsh hot sun most days.
She never used commercial sunscreens. Find out why.
