As you all probably know….I’ve been travelling to Katherine once a month for well over 18mths now. I started doing this as I had several locals had tried my certified organic herbal teas at Malak Marketplace & asked if I could come to town to support their health.
I truly love going down there each month to assist this beautiful community….but it needs to be sustainable for me to continue. Yes…I’ve helped many people, hence why they no longer need my help!! From stress, gut concerns, persistent colds/flu’s, hormone balancing, pain relief, children’s health & emotional support. This is an amazing feeling & this is why I do what I do…to see positive results after people taking control of the lives & health again. I definitely plan to be finishing out the year in Katherine…..but will need to see how things go in the New Year.
So if you know anyone who is open to natural therapies in Katherine & who would benefit from herbal & nutritional support or Flower Essences for their health & wellbeing, please pass on my details.
Thank You for Your Support…..Love & Light, Kristy x

Once again “we” (I’m on the organising committee!!)….have put together an amazing exercise timetable that should suit most peoples tastes.
The idea is that you can try a range of activities everyday of the week for $40 (or $20 concession) for 8 weeks!!You can’t get cheaper than that!! There is no limit to how many classes you can do…get back in shape now & try something new 😉
Take the challenge & get not only your body back into shape….but also your mind & soul.
De- stress & sleep better.
Oasis Shopping Centre 23rd April or the Palmerston Council Office to sign up.
It’s a fact….we are all ageing every single day. It’s inevitable but we can slow down the ageing process with what we choose to eat, drink & do with our bodies.
Now this is not rocket science….it’s just clean, fun living.
aim for 30mins light to moderate exercise most days…walking is great – just pick up the pace. Change routes as you become fitter, throwing in a hill or two. Do it with a friend or the dog!
do some resistance training to aid bone health. Carry weights or use a back pack…even training in the pool to give a natural resistance is great….& cool!
keep your mind active….you will keep producing new brain cells over time. Do a short course or workshop, read a non-fiction book, sudoku, crosswords, hey – even challenge yourself at the “Chaser”??!!
stress affects every system in the body which can lead to serious health conditions. Take time to relax & have FUN!! Try getting a massage, yoga, soaking in tub with epsom salts & essential oils, watch a comedy movie with a friend, play with your pets, spend some time in nature or throw a frisbee in the park whilst finishing off with a picnic. The list really is endless.
include protein rich foods to cut down appetite & give you extra energy, whilst cutting down on starchy carbs (breads, rice, pasta….only have small portions).
enjoy a myriad of fruit & veggies…all colours of the rainbow ….daily. Choose low GI such as salad veggies & greens, limiting high carbs like potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots. Organic or spray-free is better….& always wash veggies.
snack on nuts & seeds….& enjoy cold pressed oils such as olive & macadamia. Great for joint, heart, brain & hormonal health.
drink about 2L water daily….more when exercising. Add lemon, mint or lime to mix up the flavours.
avoid excessive alcohol, salt & sugar. Limit alcohol to 1-2 glasses & not every day. Try Himalayan Pink salt or Artisan Sea salt for the extra minerals.
don’t stress about having the odd night off & having takeaway – just don’t do it every week….choose your healthiest option available when out with friends.
