I ate my placenta!

I ate my placenta, sounds gross, right? Well not really, I didn’t fry it up for dinner or put it in my morning protein shake; I had it encapsulated! This ancient Chinese tradition involves a professional who steams, de-hydrates then grinds it down and places into capsules. A new mother takes two capsules twice a day for two weeks then slowly reduces the amount until finished or freeze some for later.

The Greek island where people forget to die

On the Greek island of Ikaria, people suffer 80 per cent less dementia, 50 per cent less heart disease and 20 per cent less cancer than the rest of the world. Marcus Pearce considers why. Known as “the island where people forget to die”, Ikaria first came to prominence when National Geographic journalist, Dan Beuttner and his team, discovered the island as a Blue Zone. There are five Blue Zones in the world – small pockets on earth where the population enjoys longer lifespans than the average. Okinawa, Sardinia, Nicoya in Costa Rica and Loma Linda in California all share with Ikaria this prestigious title.

Killing her Softly

You wouldn’t want to eat food that contains high amounts of chemicals, but do you know what you’re putting on your skin? When I first started working at Go Vita at 17 years of age, I read an article called “killing her softly” the article was written about the volume of chemicals a typical woman is exposed to within 2 hours of waking.

Nala - Self Care

The 6th of July will always bring up a lot of emotions for us the ‘would haves’ will never fade in my mind. 12 months ago, our world turned upside down when we were told that our baby's heart had stopped beating. I was 19 ½ weeks pregnant and I was induced and gave birth to our sleeping baby girl, we named her Nala Mae. There is not a day or moment that goes by I don’t think of our little angel. As I see it, the grief will never truly end.

Hemp Foods – Now Legal in Oz!

Hemp is the world’s most nutritionally complete food source. No other natural resource on earth offers the commercial, economic and environmental potential of hemp. Up until recently it wasn’t legal sell or market hemp as a food in Australia. But after acceptance of much scientific research, the Australian Government and food regulators have given it the green light so we can all enjoy the health benefits, as is done in most other countries around the world.

The keys to good mental health lie in the gut

A plethora of research continues to show the links between the health of the gut and that of the brain. Kale Brock investigates. Complementary health practitioners have drawn the link between our intestinal microbiota and overall health for some time, but only in the last decade have we really seen a big push from conventional medicine to solidify this theory with scientific evidence. There is now scientific evidence supporting the importance of gut health to prevent both Alzheimer’s disease and depression.
