Which diet is right for you?

As a naturopath one of my main areas of focus when working with new clients is to assess their nutritional intake. A good nutritional foundation is key to any health plan!
In times where we have easy access to so much information on the net, you think this would make it easy to find good information on nutrition... right? Wrong, it actually is very confusing & sometimes outright dangerous. And most of what you can find is actually not from a qualified health professional but more so from someone who has their own beliefs of what is "healthy" is- this isn't all wrong or bad information of course, but for someone new to the healthy life path it is difficult for them to filter the bad to find the good, and as a result many end up on the wrong path, which end up giving them poor results & thus they loose interest or worse they become ill or nutritionally depleted. 
I am finding these days there is so many "extreme dieters", where people are eliminating whole food groups & large chunks of nutritional sectors due to following "certain diets". After all there is so many diets to choose from but what is right for you? Vegan, vegetarian, paleo, ketogenic (low carb), low fat, fasting, high calorie, low calorie, plant based, raw....
The list is endless.....
Now Im not saying any of these diets are wrong or bad, but they might not be right for YOU. Depending on your personal situation, lifestyle, your health history, your current health, existing medical conditions, your health goals etc different nutritional plans/diets may be better or worse suited to your body than others. 
So if finding a nutritional plan for your or your family is something that you are needing help with be sure to reach out. I have been a Naturopath for over a decade now and I have literally worked with thousands of clients to help them find the right nutritional plan to ensure their health and longevity!

Lanolising your cloth nappy wool covers!

How to lanolise your wool nappy covers!

If you choose to use wool covers with your bamboo fitted nappies or night nappies you need to lanolise them before use. This ensures your wool covers are water proof...

Follow these simple steps to lanolise your woolies:

• Half fill a medium bowl with boiled water
• Add a pea sized dob of lanolin (the pure stuff from the pharmacy)
• Stir with a clean spoon so that the lanolin completely dissolves
• Fill the rest of the bowl with cool water (so that the water is now warm not hot)
• Place your wool covers in the water, ensure they are fully submerged, by pushing them into the water giving a bit of a squeeze and repeat till the covers have soaked up the water mixture
• Leave to soak for a minimum of 3 hours
• Squeeze dry (don't rinse) and then lay them flat on a clothes line to dry

• Repeat this after each wool wash.

Easy peasy!
