What is true health & how can we take full responsibility?

For 15 yrs I was prescribed topical steroids, antihistamines, antibiotics & petrochemical products for eczema. I was repeatedly told that steroids are safe & effective. When I suggested my skin might be becoming tolerant I was dismissed & told 'so long as you use them sparingly you can not become addicted'.


Why do certain fabrics irritate your skin & make you itchy?

Certain fabrics such as wool, man-made fabrics like acrylic, polyester, rayon, acetate, nylon and wrinkle resistant fabrics tend to cause more skin irritation due to the chemicals that are used to create them. Fabrics on clothing and furniture can also collect dust and irritants so make sure to wash them regularly.


How many ingredients are in your skincare?

Count the ingredients! A friend of mine recently shared his morning routine with me to get my opinion. He was shocked to see the sheer number of ingredients in his high end cosmeceutical skincare & the number of petrochemical, silicone, filler, ethoxylated & non physiological ingredients in them.


When you blindly 'trust the science'.

It's 'safe & effective' they said. Topical steroids & the traditional western medical system almost ruined my life as I entrusted them with eczema.I saw the top doctors & dermatologists in Australia. Topical steroids were 'safe & effective' they said, with 'no side effects' so long as they were 'used sparingly'.


Physical vs. Chemical Suncreens

Chemical sunscreens provide UV protection by absorbing into your skin & then transforming UV rays into infrared rays (heat). Yet they can disrupt hormones, increase the likelihood of skin irritation & are systemically absorbed after a single use. Physical suncreens reflect & deflect rays instead.
