Honey, I Killed the Superbug

Far from being an obscure health food with dubious healing qualities, new research has shown the honey kills every type of bacteria scientists have thrown at it, including the antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" plaguing hospitals and killing patients around the world.

Astrovision Horoscopes – November 2010

Harsha Rigney has provided me with some of the most helpful and down to earth Astrological readings I have so far come across. I used to read her health horoscopes every month when I lived in New Zealand. We are now fortunate that she puts up a summary every month on her helpful horoscope blog. I have included her mood for the month as well as just the Scorpio horoscope for November, please take a second to check out her horoscope blog to find your own horoscope for November.


Jupiter and Venus have both been Retrograde – Jupiter since 23rd July and Venus since 8th October. On the 19th November they both will move Direct. This is where the planet that had been appearing to move backwards (Retrograde) is now appearing to move forward (Direct). This takes the energy relative to that planet into an easier flow, having been held back, creating delays. With these two moving forward again we will generate more excitement in our lives, see progress with business developments, be more open in our relationships and have a greater feeling of love and ease of affection.



Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Training

Flattr this
In 2003, I began a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy training in New Zealand. I was a chef at the time, so this was entirely new for me. Prior to starting the training I spent about 3 years researching various healing modalities to make sure I put my hard-earned money into the right one for me. I knew I wanted to do craniosacral therapy, but at the time it was hard to find anyone to teach it. I stumbled on this course when I was studying herbs and nutrition at Wellpark College in Auckland and knew right away it was what I had been looking for.

As a chef, I worked long hours and the standing combined with chopping, whipping, stirring, grilling… was taking a toll on my body. Not only that, but I smoked more than I ate, and loved a cup of coffee more than a bowl of soup. At the time I actually thought it a waste of money to buy food! (Bear in mind that I worked in kitchens so I always had access to the best food without having to buy it for at least one meal a day.) My body was falling apart. I knew I was on the wrong path and I needed to find a way to get healthy again.



Wellington Walks

KingstonOne of the things about being broke all the time is that the best way to get places is to walk. Which is actually very good for you — mind and body-wise, and fortunately, we love it. While living in Wellington, unfortunately our laundromat was at the bottom of a huge hill so every two weeks on my one day off a week we dragged our backpacks stuffed with dirty clothes down the mountain and hauled our freshly folded clean laundry back up a steep hill. It sure felt great when we got to the top and flopped down looking out over the hilltops of Wellington.

Wellington really feels like the end of the world in many ways, being at the tip of the North Island of New Zealand. With the wind and waves of all of the mighty Pacific Ocean rushing through the narrow Cook Straight, it gets the most changeable weather and wild winds of any place I have ever lived. I loved walking around the coves and rock pools that made up the wild coast-line, each cove had quite different characteristics than the next.
