Back in October, before I went on my online break, my friend Nicola Chatham and I filmed the final video in our Edible Garden series. Now, I can finally share it with you! We created this series of videos to demonstrate the process of building an organic veggie patch from scratch – from planning, to planting herbs, to creating compost and a worm farm, and finally to constructing the main veggie patch.Read More
The Wellness Warrior Australian Tour is kicking off in Sydney at the end of the month, and I couldn’t be more pumped to come out and meet you in person. I’m also super excited to be bringing some of my amazing friends on the road with me. I’ve chosen some of my favourite people – experts in the wellness field as well as some well-known names who may have a different day job, but who will surprise you with their wellness warrior wisdom.Read More

A couple of months ago, my worst-case scenario came true. My mother passed away. Anyone who has ever experienced tragedy will know that our strongest and most resilient selves step up during the most difficult of times. But beneath the warrior-like front that’s needed to see us from one moment to the next without falling to pieces, our souls are fragile. This was definitely the case for me.Read More
My gosh, it feels good to be back! I’ve missed you all so much! I hope you had a beautiful Christmas and New Year, and that 2014 is off to a cracking start.
Even though writing for you is one of my favourite things in the world to do, allowing myself to take the time off was exactly what I needed. During the weeks after my mum passed away, I couldn’t motivate myself to do anything productive. I slept until 9am and even then I struggled to get out of bed.Read More
In case you missed last week’s announcement, I’ve decided to postpone my Australian tour from November to early next year so that I can give myself the time and space to fully grieve the loss of my mum. It was the best decision I could have made. I realised that I had been putting my grieving process on hold to an extent, telling myself that I will let myself feel how I feel when I have the time to do so. As we all know, suppressed feelings fester beneath the surface and have the potential to grow into health issues. Feeling is healing. So, here are our new tour dates:Read More
Oh, happy day! My very first book (published through Hay House!), Make Peace With Your Plate, is officially out now. It’s been making its way into stores across Australia all this month, and by now it should be available everywhere you can buy books. The dream I’ve had since I was six years old has been manifested!Read More
Firstly, thank you so much for your support and the love you’ve been sending my way since I announced that my mother passed away. I’ve been offline this whole time taking a break and being with my family, but my team has collated your messages and I’ve been reading them when I’ve felt strong enough. You’re amazing and I’m so grateful to be surrounded with so much virtual love.
Secondly, I’ve decided to postpone my Australian tour. After spending the past two weeks with a knot in my stomach at the idea of ploughing through and just “getting on with it”, I’ve realised that now is the time to really honour my most important ethos: be kind, be brave, be well.Read More
As many of you know, my Mum had breast cancer for the past few years. She was diagnosed about a year after I started Gerson Therapy, and seeing how much the therapy helped me, she went straight on it herself. However, unlike my journey, Mum’s was fraught with complications. She had been doing well and seemed to make it through her obstacles, however a few months ago it became clear that the cancer was getting ahead of her. She was in pain, lost a lot of weight, lost all energy, and her health quickly deteriorated. We explored lots of options however Mum choose to see out the final months of her life in a way that was exactly right for her.Read More
