Whole Foods, Wholey Foods

When Natasha of Wholey Foods worked at Coke and Kellogg’s in marketing she wasn’t conscious of the food she was eating; then she started feeding a family. “I guess like many mums when I had a family I reconsidered my priorities around food. Suddenly, I wanted to do what was best and it took me on this whole journey of looking at what we were eating. I started looking closely at ingredients and nutrition panels. I wanted to...

Calcium amounts and benefits for kids

Is your child getting adequate calcium (Ca) ? Our children need adequate calcium to support their growing bones,  a process that’s  complete by the end of their teen years.

‘The Eyes Have It’ or the practice of meditation

One thing I love to do to enrich my yoga and meditation practice, is read from various reputable sources and practice by myself and/or guided by a good, experienced teacher. Recently I have had the challenging task of emptying my parent’s apartment and saying goodbye to my childhood, the home my brother and I grew up in. It has been exhausting, both physically and emotionally. Yet, what has kept my head on my shoulders and my...

As a mum of (only!) two, there are times when it becomes extremely challenging to keep up with the  frantic pace of a life with kids: a mum often is a professional, a psychologist, a nurse, a taxi driver, a chef and meal planner, a maid, a fairy, a wife and many other roles!

Kids and epilepsy

“I’m not sure all the teachers realise that he isn’t not listening. It’s often hard to know when he is having a seizure. I do because I know him so well”. This was the paraphrased conversation I had casually joined at the school gate yesterday.   Her son has multiple Focal (partial) seizures during the day.

The Early Ups and Downs of Motherhood

The day I found out I was pregnant with my son was full of mixed emotions. Most of them happy, but I did have a few concerns and fears as well. All of which I am sure any new mum would have when faced with the reality that you are going to be responsible for a new little life!

Learning To Love Yourself Through Yoga

‘Learning to love yourself’ – We’ve all heard it so many times, and especially us busy mums! But what does that mean anyway? It’s all over social media, magazines and self-help books… I had trouble with understanding the concept for many years until I decided I wanted to learn how to do a free-standing handstand (which I perceived it to be a yoga pose completely out of my league and reserved for acrobats). How does that...
