[Read time: 10 mins]

According to Justin Sonnenburg and Eric Sonnenburg, PhDs and authors of *From the Good Gut: Taking Control of Your Weight, Your Mood and Your Long-Term Health.

  • “A primal connection exists between our brain and our gut. We often talk about a “gut feeling” when we meet someone for the first time. We’re told to “trust our gut instinct” when making a difficult decision or that it’s “gut check time” when faced with a situation that tests our nerve and determination. This mind-gut connection is not just metaphorical. Our brain and gut are connected by an extensive network of neurons and a highway of chemicals and hormones that constantly provide feedback about how hungry we are, whether or not we’re experiencing stress, or if we’ve ingested a disease-causing microbe.

This information superhighway is called the brain-gut axis and it provides constant updates on the...

How much water should you drink per day?

How much water should I drink-.png

Fun fact: 70- 80% of your body is water.

The common belief that you need to drink eight 8 glasses of water a day to stay healthy and hydrated may be one of the biggest health myths out there.

While drinking water as your primary beverage is undoubtedly one of the most important cornerstones of health, there’s a misconception that you need to be chugging down water all day to stay well. In fact, a report from The National Academy of Sciences concluded that most Americans are not walking around dehydrated on a regular basis. They noted, “The vast majority of healthy people adequately meet their daily hydration needs by letting thirst be their guide.”1

The report added that while 80 percent of Americans’ total water intake comes from water and other beverages (including caffeinated beverages like coffee, which do “count” in your total fluid intake, contrary to popular belief), 20...

People killing and people dying, children hurting and I hear them crying? WHERE IS THE LOVE?

People killing and people dying. Children hurting and I hear them crying. Can you practice what you preach or do you turn the other cheek? Where is the love?

Where is the love? - BEP

A war in Syria. Isis this, Isis that. Trump is the president. People being run over in the streets of Melbourne!!! It’s not safe. It’s not safe!!!!
Or that’s what the media wants you to think!

Let’s just call it for what it is. The media is geared towards fear. You know it and I know it. They show one side of the coin – the negative side.

As much as I limit and filter exposure to this sort of brainwashing, sometimes I get caught up in the negativity but recently at the airport I saw the best example of humanity and life. I wanted to share it as a reminder.
I’ll set the scene, I’m picking up family arriving from overseas. Waiting at the arrivals gate you could feel all the love in the room. Mother’s who...

Fuck your way fit. How much sex is enough?


It’s been about a month since I blogged, I’ve been pretty busy working on creating my 12 week online program and coordinating big things for Primal Move Food.

We just signed a deal with a nation wide distributor. Which means our organic protein balls will be in cafes, restaurants and health food shops all over Australia!! To say I am excited is an understatement, I feel like a little boy on Christmas morning who just unwrapped his present from Santa and it’s the firetruck he always wanted.

The other big news is our first fridge has gone into Next Gen Canberra! We plan to stock it with our organic salads. Check it out. My friend and local artist Mikhaela Davis did the artwork.

Why Paleo and Vegan are making you sick!

Which diet is best.jpg

This blog post is definitely going to trigger some emotional outbursts. Good.

Let’s get one thing clear. Your dogma is making you sick!

Until last year I had eaten Paleo for over 5 years. Then something strange happened. All the meat was making me feel not as great as I am used to. Lower energy, my skin not as clear, poo funky. Something was up.

So I decided to go vegetarian or vego as the kids call it these days. I started to feel better. My eyes became whiter, my skin got it’s glow again and my poo, well let’s just say it was perfect.

Now vegetarians are vegans at this point are probably going “YEAH THAT’S BECAUSE BEING VEGAN AND VEGO IS HEALTHIER”. Well they are right and wrong! It was what I needed at the time. But not what I needed before or now.

Let me give you a nutrition 101. Multiple factors effect what you need to be healthy especially when it comes to nutrition...

What I learnt from my Ayahuasca Retreat in Peru!

12 days, 7 ceremonies, 1 Amazon Jungle.
Amazon Retreat Peru Image.jpg

For 2 years I have umming and ahhing whether to do Ayahuasca or Aya as I refer to her. I can’t exactly remember where I came across the info on the benefits but I know it had something to do with a number of VERY successful people recommending it. Success leaves clues, so I followed the yellow brick road, all the way to the Wizard of Ayahuasca.

If you don’t know what Aya is? Here is the wiki definition. Essentially, it’s a plant medicine native to the Amazon which involves drinking a ‘cocktail’ of two plants a Shaman or medicine man cooks up. One plant helps the medicine enter the blood-brain barrier, the other helps release a chemical called DMT. DMT is also released upon death and is thought as the spiritual molecule. You drink this and you can have hallucinogenic experiences, purge (in my case a fuck ton!) and much more.

For the sake of this...
