Don’t forget your fascia

ShareTweet So nobody ever told me you need to look after your scar tissue. At least not that I remember. And despite my degree where we covered anatomy in those wet labs, I never gave my fascia a second thought. That beautiful web of tissue that weaves its way around every nook and cranny in […]

Does the mind matter?

ShareTweet I received some feedback about a talk I gave recently. And while the large majority of people found the content of my talk enlightening (which I am thrilled about because this knowledge will go on to help even more people), there was someone who wasn’t too happy. The feedback went something like this: … […]

101 Not Out

ShareTweet My Grandmother just turned 101. Kind of an anti-climax this year given that she had the ‘big’ birthday last year. Especially since the retirement village she lives in was in quarantine and no-one was allowed in – or out – to celebrate with her. But she was in great spirits nonetheless when I rang. […]

A Dog’s Life

ShareTweet So my daughter’s boyfriend has in recent months adopted this gorgeous little puppy called Guinevere. Tan in colour, rolls of skin, a gentle nature and those sad doggy eyes to match. She’s just beautiful and loads of fun along with her sister Boadacea. Last week the dynamic duo reached the required age to be […]

Reframing the picture

ShareTweet My husband heard a beautiful story the other day about a woman just about to embark on the trip of a lifetime to Paris. Fortunately, the leg she had broken just weeks earlier had healed just in time. But en-route, making her way through the airport terminal she tripped…. and succeeded in tearing all […]

Stress spreads cancer

ShareTweet There’s some great stuff on Catalyst and the episode on stress and cancer is no exception. An interview with the Australian researchers who’ve worked out at least one of the ways in which stress helps cancer to spread. And there were a few things in particular that grabbed my attention. The first… The beautiful […]

Keep Moving

ShareTweet They say when life’s hard the best thing you can do is to keep moving forward. And after watching Catalyst’s episode on Exercise and Cancer it proves it’s true in more ways than one. If you haven’t seen this episode, you must. Because what they’ve done is to demonstrate without a doubt that when we […]

Memories of yesterday

ShareTweet Yesterday was an interesting day. My middle daughter and I were invited to speak to a group of young student doctors. Fresh faced, open and with such a beautiful energy. They still have their training wheels on. And it is such a privilege to be able to speak with them, an opportunity to help […]

Loving what is

ShareTweet My friend Peter calls it surrender. Petrea King talks about finding your peace. And for Byron Katie it’s all about loving what is. And none of its about being defeated. Far from it. They are all speaking of acceptance. Because when we’re in a place of acceptance, when we give up the fight, things […]

Stuck in a rut… no more

ShareTweet Sometimes I just get so excited I feel like I’m going to burst! And that’s how I feel right now. I’ve just watched Redesign My Brain Episode 2 and it’s brilliant. Ordinary people learning to do extraordinary things with their minds. And I love it that this information is becoming mainstream. No longer just […]
