I get asked a lot about certain products, people, programs, places and more that I love, admire, trust and that contributes to my own health and wellbeing. There are far too many downright incredible companies that I want you to know about and that I use myself. So, here is a space I can share these with you.
Please enjoy, and look out for sneaky discounts you can use.

Call me crazy or fanatical, but I can’t remember the last time I drank any unfiltered water. This is one of my non-negotiables, because what is added to our water these days is not something you want to be guzzling down.

Helen Padarin is a star in the health field. I have and will always greatly respect her work. The thing is, there isn't many other practitioners I trust with myself or my clients, though Helen is someone that I happily have full trust that myself or clients are in the right hands. She's pretty funny too, which is an absolute bonus.
The GALLBLADDER FLUSH - I believe almost everyone needs to do a gallbladder flush, and this is the most perfect way for you to do it with a hand to hold and some trusted guidance. It can improve your digestion dramatically, cleanse your whole body, bring you energy, vitality, and clarity. For signs and symptoms that you need to undergo this, then go to her website HERE.
I have used these cultures non-stop for a few years now. I have a continual flow of experiments happening on my kitchen bench, fermenting all sorts of foods from cashews to cucumbers to figs to pineapple. Kirsty Wirth is one of the most inspiring gut health experts I know, and not only do they have the cultures I love and use, they also have trustworthy online gut healing programs that many people can benefit from. I personally support many clients through personalised gut healing programs in consultations that are specific to them and seperate to Kultured Wellness, though if you are one to love online support and want all the supplements, cultures and more in one cost and posted to your door, then this is for you. I also regularly support individuals going through the Kultured Wellness gut healing programs as some need additional support is often needed and I know the programs very well.
Why I love the cultures: They are histamine lowering, don't contain lactic acid forming bacteria, are ridiculously potent in beneficial microbes, are food based, do not contain any nasties like many other probiotics, and they ferment food quicker than anything I have used before.
Why I can be iffy about other culture starters and probiotics: Many contain nasty fillers, like maltodextrin or dextrose, and this will only contribute to the inflammation that an individual is aiming to reduce. Moreover, the blend of microbes can sometimes do you more damage than good, as they contain histamine forming microbes. Other fermented foods may be beneficial once the gut flora has somewhat rebalanced, however in the initial stages of healing we need to be more careful as to what microbes are exposing ourselves to.

Lauren has been a friend of mine for a long time, and her passion for yoga is none like I have seen before. A live Yogi is a platform of LIVE yoga, meditation, workshops, talks and more that you can attend, though the classes save into a database which you can watch whatever class you enjoy most.
It can be hard to make it to a yoga class, no matter how much better we know we will feel afterwards. Having a class that you can do in your own home, literally at any time you feel like it, is just so damn handy.
Lauren has had me speak on particular topics live with her which is shared on the private facebook page.
When you know the owner, Kim Morrison, of this true, honest, beautiful company, you will first want to give her a big cuddle, and secondly fall head over heels with what she brings into our lives. I first hand, know that what goes into each and every product is as pure as it gets. Organic, 100% essential oils that hold incredible medicinal value.
Why I can be iffy about other essential oils: there is a lot of adulteration that goes on behind scenes that you have no idea about. This means that it may not be 100% what it is saying on the label, a large portion may not be from the medicinal plant it is saying, and be a much cheaper alternative.
You can find all of her products HERE.
