    Turning over a new leaf

    As we move from winter to spring it’s a great time to increase intake of a variety of crunchy vegetables and fruits. Time to see what nature has on offer and to increase our intake of leafy greens and other fresh, spring vegetables and fruits.

    You may even find the desire for some salad greens starting to arise again as the weather becomes warmer. Consider mixing and matching from a variety of leafy vegetables:  endive, spinach, red chard, arugula, watercress, green and red leaf lettuce and raddichio (red or Italian chicory). Not only does the end result look …

  • When’s A Good Time To Detox?

    Have you noticed how much smoother a car runs after it has had a tune up?  It can sometimes seem as if the car is new again!

    Just as our car does best with a regular service so also nature has coded within our physiology two times of the year when a tune up can make all the difference to how we feel and perform – the transition from winter to spring and the transition from summer to autumn.

    After a gentle Ayurvedic cleanse people often comment about how much more energy they have, how their aches and pains have gone, and how much happier they feel. It makes sense that a cleanse can bring …

  • Hungry? Or Just Not Satisfied?

    Susie asks Linda…
    Lately I have been eating way too much, especially at night and I can't seem to stop. Anything I can do about it? I have not increased my exercise. I think because it's colder I get bored and want to eat. How can I stop myself from doing this?

Many people trying to lose weight restrict their intake in the morning in the hope to cut calories, but really only end up playing catch-up later in the …

  • Love Your Liver - The Silent Servant

    Give some thought to your liver this week. The liver plays a crucial role in detoxifying your body, helping to keep your immune system strong especially during the colder seasons.

    Your liver's job is to cleanse and filter the blood, promote the elimination of toxins and hormones, and to facilitate digestion. The liver also governs fat metabolism by releasing lipids (fats) and associated toxins into the blood for elimination. Your liver is a very important organ especially during winter when you want to stay well and be warm!

    When do I need to support my liver?
