On this page, you'll find links to items, tools, programs, and other products I have tried, tested, and personally use to support and optimise my health.
I am quite particular about the recommendations I make, so rest assured these suggestions are from the heart and are made with integrity.

SOLIDTEKNICS is my absolute favourite cookware, as they have designed and built products that last, rather than crappy cookware which falls apart and is full of toxic coatings and chemicals which are harmful for you and your family's health.
I use my 22cm Iron Sauteuse Pan every day, and it is super easy to maintain the non-stick coating with a combination of regular stovetop and oven seasoning, not to mention how easy it is to clean with a bit of elbow grease and hot water!
The ease of cleaning, durability, reliability, and results in the finished food product from cooking with these pans is phenomenal, and I really look forward to continuing to build up my Solidteknics collection at home!
Many people who have issues with getting to sleep, staying asleep, headaches, migraines, and eye strain from staring at screens all day often share something in common...
Their circadian rhythms (body clocks) are out way of whack!
Our eyes (and skin) have evolved to respond to light and dark cycles. In the morning when the sun starts to rise, the sunlight provides a signal to the body that it's time to wake up, and at dusk when the sun starts to set, the dim light is what induces our sleepy chemical (melatonin) to be produced so we can ease into a good night's sleep.
BUT... In modern life, we are exposed to artificial light from phones, televisions, computers, overhead lights, and so on which confuses our sensory receptors, especially when our eyes are exposed to these lights at night!
This can really disrupt not only our sleep/wake cycle, but the alteration to our circadian rhythm can impact our blood sugar regulation (sugar cravings, weight gain, insulin resistance), destabilise our mood, and impact other body systems negatively. Not to mention, the artificial light given off by screens throughout the day can really put some strain on our eyes, often contributing to headaches or even migraines.
Years ago when I realised the harmful effects of blue / artificial light (especially in the evening when it's meant to be dark), I started using blue-light blocking glasses with an orange tint in the evening. They were immensely helpful in getting my body to "retrain" its circadian rhythm, to the point where I didn't even need to use an alarm clock to wake up at the same time every day - I just did it myself!
I also had a separate yellow tinted pair for during the day, which were particularly helpful for reducing eye strain and headaches from spending a lot of time at the computer all day. What was annoying though, was having multiple pairs of blue blockers...
So when I found out there was an awesome Melbourne-based business making a 3-IN-1 pair of blue blockers, I was so set on trying them!
Nowadays I use my Barkley interchangeable blue blockers throughout the day:
Yellow tint = working at the computer during the day to prevent eye strain
Orange tint = around sunset when I want to let my body know the evening is approaching
Red tint = 1-2 hours before I plan to hit the hay, so I can have a solid night's sleep and wake up feeling refreshed
I'm proud to recommend these blue blockers out of all the ones I've tried because:
It's super convenient to have a single pair with 3 clip-ons for all times of day
They're effective at what they're designed to do
They come with stylish frames
The company uses sustainable and ethical principles in their processes

Want to learn how to grow your own edible plants at home, using techniques that improve soil health and don't cost the earth?
I learned how to do exactly that with permaculture expert Morag Gamble's Incredible Edible Garden course.
I'll let Morag introduce you to the course...
The course has lessons covering the following:
Create Superb Soils
Make Your Garden
Grow Abundant Food
Food Forest Bounty
The Superfood Garden
The Medicinal Garden
The Beauty Garden
The Tea Garden
Cooking A Garden Feast
What I really loved the most about this course is that Morag helped me to bring permaculture into my tiny suburban garden.
The knowledge I've gained from Morag's lessons has been instrumental in allowing me to build a lush, productive garden in a small space, and I honestly cannot wait to use all these techniques on a larger scale when I can eventually move to a place with more outdoor space to work with!
Morag's approach to gardening is simple, accessible, and FUN! With the knowledge I've gained from the course, I enjoy spending time in my little garden, making tweaks here and there and watching it grow and evolve with the seasons.
Is your breathing affecting your health?
Most of us don't breathe optimally. In fact, most people overbreathe because we automatically resort to using our mouth, chest, and shoulders to breathe, rather than using our nose and our primary breathing muscle, the diaphragm.
Respiratory therapist / breath coach and Molokai Surfski champion, Tim Altman B.Sc, B.H.Sc has spent years in clinical practice studying how people breathe, using biofeedback.
Astonishingly, he has found that even among people like yoga teachers and Olympic gold medallists, most people are not breathing functionally.
Dysfunctional breathing can also contribute to many common health problems, including Asthma and Breathing Difficulties, Anxiety, Depression, Sleep problems and so much more.
Tim has helped countless people improve their health and performance by helping them to breathe better everyday, but he saw how limited these results could be by just working with people one-on-one, so he developed specialised Breathing Dynamics Online Courses, so that learning to breathe functionally and optimally could be attainable for everyone.
Tim has Online Breathing Courses for:
