The Cause of my Daughter’s Brain Tumour & The Law of Attraction: VERY Confronting Stuff.

‘Everything that surrounds you in your life right now…you’ve attracted.’ – Dr Joe Vitale, The Secret But, what about my daughter’s brain tumour and post surgical catastrophic fallout? I didn’t will my daughter’s brain tumour into existence! I didn’t WISH that she suffer chronic health issues after her surgery that put her life in constant…

How My Daughter is seizing back her POWER in the face of Chronic Health Challenges: You can too.

When Hana woke up from her surgery with a damaged brain my first thought and only instruction to myself was “FIX IT. And don’t rest until you do.” You know the story. I spent 2.5 years trying to FIX IT  – I was prepared to fight to fix it until the day I died. And…

Why I run Electricity through my Brain: tDCS

‘I’ll let you do that then,’ says hubby as I excitedly unpack my batteries, ready to hook my brain up to electricity. ‘That’s going no where near my brain.’ He looks something akin to horrified. ‘This is for Hana, habibi,’ I say, plugging in the electrodes, ‘I need to try  it out, how can I…

The Story behind the Oxytocin Case Report (Now published in JPEM!)

Just over two years has passed since the incredible day it ‘clicked’ that not only was Oxytocin missing from Hana’s medication regime (and, at the time – in my opinion -in the regime of every single Panhypopit patient in the WORLD) but that she NEEDED it and MUST have it. To my surprise, my initial…

Do you believe in Past Lives? Why I (now) do and an intro to Dr Weiss…

Up until a few of months ago I didn’t believe in Past Lives or the concept of reincarnation. I thought it was complete and utter rubbish. And of course I pompously thought I wasn’t at all arrogant in my fossilised non-spirtual beliefs! Just not prepared to budge an inch. Oh boy…more un-learning for me to…

“Love Yourself, and that includes your Cancer.” – Why our Daughter is NOT Fighting Cancer

The words slip out automatically – ‘We have another battle on our hands,’ ‘We’re going to fight this together.’ It’s the cancer lingo,  jargon everyone uses to talk about cancer. The implication that Cancer is the foreign body, the enemy inside, something to be battled, fought, rallied against and…hated. Hated? I’ve used these words with…

Why telling ‘Patients’ not to read the Internet is Utter Nonsense & Fosters Consumer Disempowerment

“Whatever you do, don’t read the Internet!” The first time I heard of a fellow consumer being told this by their treating Health Care Professional (HCP) I almost choked on my second coffee of the day. “Bollocks!” I roared, ‘How..?’ Then I found myself speechless with indignation, opening and closing my mouth like a dumb…

Haven’t heard about my new kid’s books business venture? Then please read this…

Last year I decided to make my dreams come true: I wanted to write about health – for kids, I wanted to write books and I wanted those books published. There was some publisher interest in one of my series from a major publishing house – things looked super promising but then it was rejected…
