Endometriosis on SBS Insight

by admin on November 21, 2018 No comments

Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women. So that must mean we all know at least one woman who suffers from it. Or do we?

Why is Endometriosis not often talked about? Because women are living with symptoms or pain that you may not see on the outside and yet it affects almost every facet of her life. SBS Insight focused on Endometriosis recently with a panel of women who suffer from the condition, their parents, husbands, gynecologists and women’s health specialists.

Bone Broth: The 7 best recipes to try

by admin on July 24, 2018 No comments

Bone Broth. If you’re a client of mine, you know how much I talk about the benefits of Bone Broth. Not because I’m riding the Paleo diet bandwagon, but because the Traditions of Chinese Medicine use it. A woman after giving birth is often given chicken bone broth for weeks sometimes months during her confinement. I apply this Qi & Blood building strategy to couples trying to conceive as well. Let’s look at some great recipes to get you prepared.

by admin on July 12, 2018 No comments

Reader Question: Can I take herbs when doing IVF? Excellent Question! This is a controversial issue, only because many doctors DO NOT like you taking anything whilst you’re on an active IVF cycle. They’re concerned about drug interactions which is fair enough. There are some scenarios where it may assist, so let’s talk about those.

How to be a Vegetarian and Stay Healthy

by admin on July 10, 2018 No comments

Being Vegetarian doesn’t mean being just meat-free. I loathe menus that state they have Vegetarian options only to discover it’s a meatless dish, with no excitement, personality or thought put into it.

To do Vegetarianism properly you need to follow these ideas to maximise your protein intake.

With my recent posts on Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to Vegan and Vegetarian dishes, I’ve come across a lot of new ideas on the Veggie Burgers. This is the Vegetarian staple on many menus, but how about trying some of these recipes at home for yourself.

How to Nourish your Qi & Blood if you’re Vegan

by admin on July 4, 2018 No comments

Being Vegan and trying to conceive isn’t impossible. However, from a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective relying on a diet solely of raw food and smoothies is a big NO-NO and not helpful to conception.

Instead foods that nourish Qi and Blood become paramount for Vegans. Here I share some recipes that have great ideas when it comes to nourishing Qi and Blood when you’re Vegan.
