Hello and welcome to my blog
SUMMER IS COMING ITS TIME TO SMILE!
Here at medicineroom we are so excited for this summer! Its time to get out with nature, enjoy your life and follow your passions! Yes its fire time, its the flowering of what you have been planning through spring time and its time to cool down in water when you need to relax! Thats right. In Traditional Chinese medicine summer is the time of flaming manifestations! In my eclectic world of medicine its all about enjoying the fruits of your labours and making hay! Yes that old saying is really about creation and manifestation of wellness, health, beauty and joy! So smile, enjoy and stay healthy with plenty of fresh air, nourishing foods, exercise and relaxation. Keep your attitude positive and uplifted and keep your body bouyant and well nourished with lighter summertime foods and fresh fresh fresh as your theme for diet and lifestyle!
How you can make that work for your health and wellness?
Herbs are our first medicine and this summer you can take a really beautiful tonic that will boost your energy, enhance your adrenal glands, keep your metabolism stable and keep you on top of the heat! Talk with us and we can formulate for you.
Some ideas I have are echinacea which works on boosting immunity, keeping you strong and energising you on a cellular level. Adaptogenic herbs are great at this time of year as they balance the whole body, lets have some siberian ginseng, ashwanganda ( withania) bacopa and a dose of beautiful Olive leaf to boost us and help us increase our cellular energy.
After all that detoxing in spring you must be feeling energised and ready to take on the world! This is great, however we need to look after our body, keep our heart calm, keep our body cool and pace ourselves so that we can achieve our best projects with love and passion. Summer foods are red, orange, and did you know that eating foods at room temp is better for your body than cold food? Yes thats right, this makes your body temp stable and allows your metabolism to be optimal.
Eat 50% of your diet raw at least. Grow delicious summer time vegetables in your garden and enjoy the fruits of the season. My book The magic of food as medicine is a wonderful guide to fruits, vegetables and herbs and allows you to know why these foods are your first medicine! Keep adding lemon juice and quality vinegar to your diet so that you have good liver function and keep mucous in your body at bay! Add in some quality oils and make sure you get enough protein. about 30% of your diet is perfect protein. Not too much, not too little. Keep it balanced.
Keep up your vitamin B! we love brewers nutritional yeast for this and its cheap at your local co op and health food shop. Vitamin B is a co factor for the synthesis of protein and helps make super enegised new cells in your body. Its also a vegetarian source of Vitamin B 12 and folic acid which makes tis a must eat food for anyone who doesn’t have yeast allergies!
Please call us or email me for wellness assistance!

About this project.
As you possibly know I have been dedicated to wellness events for about ten years now. Its such an honour to be a programmer at The Woodford Folk Festival and our leader and mentor Bill Hauritz has been a big influence in my life by teaching me about festivals and giving me a role in this event that allows me to grow and develop my passions and skills. I did a masters in health promotion to help me understand events and wellness better. So now, after two pilots we are presenting our event for two days, across four venues, 39 presentations of 90 minutes each over two days in Maleny township.
I am so grateful that my friends have come to the party this summer and are joining us for our event in Maleny on January 20 plus 21st 2018. We have such a great line up and I want to share it with you here in my medicineroom blog!
