Essential Oil Safety & Sustainability with The Alternative Mumma - Episode 52
41:29In this podcast I’ve asked a clinical aromatherapist to join me to chat about essential oils. But it might not be the sort of discussion you’d expect – we’re not talking about different remedies for conditions or anything like that, but rather, I’ve asked her onto the show to chat about essential oil safety and sustainability. Do you use essential oils? I would expect the majority of those listening to this show do use them to some extent, given how popular they are becoming amongst those people who are interested in natural medicines. There’s a lot of awesomeness about essential oils, but there is a lot of people using them that haven’t been given the full story about their potential side effects, and how to use them safely. Given that the amount of essential oil poisonings has been increasing each year, and the majority of cases of harm are in those under 15 years of age, I really feel it’s important to share the importance of knowing how to use essential oils safely to keep yourself and your children safe. In this episode, I am joined with The Alternative Mumma aka Raine. She is a clinical aromatherapist and student naturopath with a bachelor of environmental science. Raine is passionate about sharing essential oil safety information and is a wealth of knowledge about this. Her Instagram is full of great information about this, so head over to her page after this and check it out. https://thealternativemumma.com/ https://www.instagram.com/thealternativemumma/ https://www.instagram.com/gutsandgirlbits/

Endometriosis - Natural Management Options #50
22:56As we reach the end of Endometriosis Awareness Month i wanted to release a little recording I made a while ago for women's health week, in which I spoke about Endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition that can significantly affect a woman's quality of life, however there is a lack of awareness and understanding of this condition. It is estimated that 1 in 7-10 women may have this condition, however it can take many years to receive a diagnosis. I discuss some considerations of addressing this condition with naturopathic medicine, addressing the root causes of immune imbalance.

Do your kids have Worms? - Episode 48
13:47You’d be surprised at not only how common worm infestations are in kids, but also how much something like worms can do to your kids. It can affect their behaviour, sleep, energy levels and more. And by the way, you don’t have to have an itchy bum to have worms. If you suspect that your kid (or yourself) might have worms, then you need to have a look. I find gastro-intestinal infections to be a key driver for many symptoms in children, but especially so in mental and behavioural health. In this episode I talk about the common signs and symptoms of worms, how to tell if your kids have worms and what can be done about it. https://www.naturopathnsw.com.au/kids-worms
A Holistic Guide to PCOS - Episode 47
25:00PCOS, also known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a complex condition that can significantly affect a woman’s quality of life. One of the biggest ways it does this is by impacting on a women's ability to conceive and maintain a pregnancy, but it can also impact a woman's self-esteem by making it difficult to lose weight, it causes acne and hair issues, such as too much hair where a woman doesn't want it to be, and potentially thinning of scalp hair. Of course, there is more to it than that, but those are the major things that women report as the issues they're most upset by. In this article and podcast, I will discuss the lack of awareness and poor understanding surrounding PCOS, how it is often misunderstood and why its name has a role in this. I discuss the common, and not so common signs and symptoms of PCOS and talk about the driving factors that can cause PCOS to develop. I talk about how PCOS is often diagnosed and discuss some of the key ways PCOS can be addressed naturally.
