My Niacin Detox experience

Towards the end of 2021, we were super lucky to be able to do the Niacin Detox using Infrared Sauna as a team. It was one incredible experience that not only bonded us as a team, but was transformative for our health. When Harrison first explained this detox protocol a few months earlier, I thought to myself “I’ll never be doing that”. But alas, I found myself taking part in

Hormone Testing

By Alexandra Berecry – Naturopath First up, the preface I always make whenever I talk about ANYTHING hormonal with women is this: if you are experiencing anything more than a mild discomfort a day or 2 before your period, if you are feeling anything other than a little more tired or socially withdrawn the week or so before your bleed, or if you are changing whatever sanitary support you use

Sleep, Stress & Circadian Rhythms

By Alexandra Berecry (Naturopath) Your body’s physiological processes are the result of millions of years of adaptation to the forces of nature. These natural forces are the movement of the planets, sun, moon and the stars. In actual fact there is a field of science called chronobiology that examines cyclic phenomenon in living organisms and their adaptation to solar and lunar related rhythms. These cycles are known as biological rhythms.

The Emotional Side of Unmet Expectations

The Emotional Side of Unmet Expectations How to deal with disappointment, frustration and expectations hangover of our new reality. No one could predict the reality we are living in right now. Life as we knew it has been put on hold and in some ways probably will never be the same again. With all the respect, I acknowledge the grief of loosing the loved ones and financial hardships, but this

Our Community – Meet Lui

– Tell us a little about your upbringing? I grew up in Palm beach, living with my 3 older sisters, my dad and step mum. I am one of 4 girls (my poor dad and the amount of hormones and periods he had to endure haha). My mum lived in Melbourne from when I was about 5 years old, which made school holidays super fun, getting to adventure on a

10 bodily signs of nervous system dysregulation

The go-go-go, “hustle” culture has created a collective urge to grind and exert ourselves to our maximum capacity; to be more, do more, earn more, look better, be better, exercise daily, eat this way, work harder, stronger, faster…. gahhhh it’s exhausting even reading that list. Don’t get me wrong, working hard is important, but when we are continuously exposed to an overwhelming amount of external and internal factors daily, something’s

What you need to know about food intolerances.

Food intolerances are prevalent in today’s society. Everyone knows someone with a gluten, wheat, nut, soy or dairy intolerance. As some of you may already know, I frequently test for food intolerances in my patients. This is because time and time again, food intolerances play such a huge role in people’s health and symptoms-I have never had a patient whose symptoms did not improve once they had taken away the

P.M.S.

PMS or pre-menstrual syndrome is also sometimes referred to as PMT or pre-menstrual tension. PMS is such a common complaint from many of my female patients (about 75% of women suffer from PMS) and I find that many ladies see it as a ‘normal’ part of being a woman. And yes, for around a day or so while your progesterone levels are dropping before your period, a few minor symptoms

The truth about Nausea during pregnancy!

Conceiving a baby is miraculous, the timing of all the things between ovulation and fertilisation and intricate workings of the female body to sustain that fragile life is beyond amazing! Is it just me or are we exposed to a lot of information around fertility and preconception awareness but no one really warns you about the potential onslaught of debilitating sickness you’ll have to deal with while your body makes

HIDDEN STRESS OF SELF-INFLICTED PRESSURE

Do you recognise the real levels of your internal stress and its causes? One of the questions on our New Client Intake Form is asking to rate your stress levels on the scale of ten. Surprisingly lots of people will give 2-3 out of 10 justifying it as that they don’t have any significant negative events present in their life. Yet they come with anxiety, worrying, sleep & digestion issues and
