The Placenta – Not the Barrier we once thought!

How Can Fire Retardants and Pesticides Reach My Unborn Baby?   Is The Placenta a Protective Barrier? Not long ago scientists thought that the placenta shielded an unborn baby from most toxins a mother consumed and most of our mothers believed this wholeheartedly. What we now know though is; that the umbilical cord carries not only…

What Are The Effects of Tech Time?

Thinking of a bit of night-time reading with your iPad? Researchers (1) now suggest that artificial light exposure between dusk and the time we go to bed at night suppresses release of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, increases alertness and shifts our sleep rhythm to a later hour, making it more difficult to fall asleep.

Do We Create Fussy Eaters?

I know, I know… the very thought that we might actually create fussy eaters of our children sounds terrible!

Clarifying our Values

Generally speaking I am extremely inspired by what I do. In fact, most of us have extraordinary motivation and commitment when we are inspired. The tricky part I find (and I know that I’m not alone), is not “staying motivated”, but balancing the other aspects of life. Wouldn’t you agree? Most weeks I am asked…
