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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pain, Pain Go Away

ShareTweet A young GP asked me about a patient yesterday. Very concerned, she asked if I thought her patient’s chronic pain issues could be related to his emotional and mental state. Of course they are I said, without a doubt. I take my hat off to this young woman being brave enough to ask the […]

Houston we have a problem

ShareTweet The world looks different when you’re floating in space. Same universe. Just a completely different perspective. And a different experience. So when two oncologists have such different perspectives on the same treatment does it make one wrong? Or are they simply different. Perhaps two different ways of looking at the same thing. Only thing […]

What effects?

ShareTweet I once met a man who laughed at the very idea that there could be side-effects to drugs. Because if you take something and it causes an effect then it’s a direct one, isn’t it. And there’s some truth to his reasoning, isn’t there. Everything really is a direct effect. Some desirable, some less […]

Letting go of fear

ShareTweet I almost trod on a tiger snake the other day. Lying in the grass beside the track, I just didn’t see it. And I was so fortunate. It reared and flattened but didn’t strike. Just inches from my foot, I would have been bitten for sure. My life flashed before me. And I think […]
