• Good news: you can still buy I Quit Sugar Gelatin I decided to produce this stuff a few years back, because, well, it made sense to. The good quality gelatin – for making panacottas, gummies, etc and that comes with amazing gut healing and digestive-aiding properties – came from South America (via the USA). Why couldn’t we produce a version here using pasture-raised bones (that more
  • The post you send to your friends who are STILL wearing perfume A while back I wrote an open letter to everyone in my orbit asking if they’d consider not wearing perfume around me. I shared the scientific reason why it was effectively “killing me”…and them. It was  awkward. But bless my fellow humans, they got it and really tried hard to remember to not apply fragrance, more
  • A surprising cheat sheet on how to treat vitiligo I was looking into treatments for vitiligo for a friend, and reached out to Irene at Nourished Life. This is what came back. I thought I’d share…as this is the kind of thing Irene does. She’s passionate about her work and she’s taken the time to work with an expert to give me a full breakdown. more
  • A really bizarre trick for drinking coffee when you have hormone issues! My mate Kate Callaghan is a nutritionist, personal trainer and author, specialising in hormone healing and fertility. Today I’ve asked her to share a trick she told me about recently for those of us who have hormone derangement, but who love coffee. It’s a common quandary…and it would appear Kate has a solution… Over to more
  • The Cheapest Stew Ever – $1.70 per serve! A healthy and wholesome meal for $1.70? Yep, I’m serious. This recipe from my latest book I Quit Sugar: Simplicious is literally the cheapest stew ever made. And with a few tweaks in can be turned into a healing autoimmune stew – my go-to fix on days when my Hashimoto’s is playing up. This stew more
  • Bung thyroid? Here’s what Louise Hay said it’s about… Some time back I met with Louise Hay and she shared a whole heap of advice on various life issues. At the end of the interview she noted I had a thyroid issue. I’m not sure if she guessed it or I’d mentioned it. I shared what she had to say about it at the more
  • My elevator guide to the microbiome I don’t endeavour here to do a huge in-depth piece on what is a really complex topic that I’ve been studying for three years now (frankly, I don’t have the time). But since gut health is becoming more and more of a “big deal”, I’ve put together an elevator guide to the microbiome, a bunch of more
  • Should I be eating gluten if I have hashimotos? I mean, really? Oh, it’s a hoary one. I’ve swung a bit on the subject over the years. Here’s where I’ve arrived, but I’d like to get your thoughts, too. Did you watch ABC TV’s Catalyst program last night on the topic? Do so. It fleshes out the issue simply. Catch it on iView. My reasoning, however, goes more
  • Does quitting carbs cause thyroid issues? Alright, this is a controversial one. Anything Paleo-orientated generally is. But let’s wade in. I have a number of reasons for distancing myself from the Paleo movement. I agree with many of the dietary principles inherent, just not the faddishness, the fanaticism and the insistence on basing it on a meta-theory of how we ate more
  • Have an autoimmune disease? This Program will probably help. I quit sugar to manage my autoimmune disease. And after almost five years of being off the sweet stuff, I can say this: Quitting sugar had the biggest impact on my disease (Hashimotos) more so than any other medical “fix”. I have zero thyroid antibodies now, am on the minimum dosage of thyroxin and my hormone levels have more
