Understanding Mould Toxicity

Understanding Mould Toxicity

As a practitioner I witness many incredibly challenging personal journeys.  Often clients come to me as a last resort because conventional medicine in all its glory can often miss an all too common underlying issue of mould toxicity. 

It isn’t uncommon to hear clients have been told ‘its all in your head’ or ‘just rest and it will pass’.  Unfortunately, these types of comments not only aren’t the case (if only it were that simple), they can be quite damaging to the client’s overall spirit and mental state, leaving them feeling confused, discouraged, doubting themselves, and often more depressed and symptomatic.

Shining Light on Dementia and Traumatic Brain Injury

Shining Light on Dementia and Traumatic Brain Injury

We often take our health and independence for granted, but for many thousands of Australians affected by neurological disease or injury, even tasks such as making a cup of tea or remembering their way around a supermarket can be a distant dream.

Dementia Australia estimates that there were 436,366 Australians living with dementia in 2018, while an alarming 26,433 had younger-onset dementia.

Given the devastating effects that these conditions have on individuals and their families, and sometimes harmful effects of medications, new approaches are desperately needed.

Ask the average Australian if they’re healthy and most will answer yes. But in the past 15 years, our intake of fruit and vegetables has declined. In fact, says the Heart Foundation, we have a 92.9% inadequate intake of veg. [1] 

These statistics skim the surface but what they indicate is that we’re not particularly involved in, or engaged with, our health.

In 2016-17 there were 11 million hospital admissions in Australia. That’s 31 million days of patient care. [2]  We seem comfortable assuming ‘we’ll be right’ and then when we do end up in hospital we’re happy to leave it to the heavily pressured doctors and surgeons to fix us.

Can we really consider ourselves healthy when (a roughly equivalent) half of the population is in hospital at some point during the year?
