When we fully grasp the placebo and nocebo effect we will heal quickly and easily.


 under construction………MY HEALING JOURNEY     In 2012 I discovered that no dis~ease can exist in an alkali solution. I then began the very long exciting and grueling journey of changing my body acid alkali balance . Now 7 years later at 58 I’ve beaten osteo~ arthritis in my spine, long term high blood pressure, long term depression, long term lower back pain and lastly long term insomnia.The point is ~ when we are more alkali than acid we will eventually heal.

all of this food is from my yard -summer 2017, the raspberries have an important job..they take the place of others words they inoculate me.. im Never ill and I NEVER VACCINATE .

TREE CHANGE   Fitzroy was my favorite place in the world but its no place to raise a child. The pollution alone was bad, the soil was full of lead. I knew in my heart if I couldn’t feed  my child  organic food, I would find a way to do so. I began looking for towns with good soil. It was a simple as that. A few yrs later, I had bought  this  home in healesville , opened the yoga  school, studied permaculture, with the intent to keep us as healthy as possible & to grow  our own inoculating food.
Yarra Valley Yoga is my 2nd baby. My beloved daughter my 1st of course. It was created because I loved yoga and I loved teaching.

here im taking an outdoor yoga class at MOORA MOORA FESTIVAL

TEACHER ARCHETYPE     I began teaching when I was a kid, it came naturally . At 12 yrs of age I was teaching ballet to tiny totts, then later in my 20’s  I taught at John Morrey  School  of Hairdressing as a  hair color technician .

NEW YORK    It was my hairdressing world that led me to a very exciting 2 yr chapter in New York. Below is a Polaroid of a job as a makeup artist  when i was at FORDS. This a favorite because the Twin Towers  were alive with color in the background.The pick was  taken beneath the Brooklyn Bridge


1986..i lived and worked in NEW YORK FORDS.. as a makeup artist. this is a Polaroid of one of my jobs…I LOVE IT because of the TWIN TOWERS IN THE BACK GROUND.

I worked at FORDS modelling agency as a make up artist  from 1986 -87. The obvious beauty myth scenario got under my skin, I truly couldn’t stomach it. I found my self a great part time job in a super funky hair salon in spring street Soho called SO HAIR.
That was then. It was a crazy time, I enjoyed a  life  style that might kill me now. Interestingly whilst I was at my most hedonistic  I discovered yoga.  I’ve mellowed now, 30 yrs of meditation  ~contemplation and yoga  will change anyone .

 2010  SPINAL INJURY  ~ wasn’t from yoga~ I was originally injured at 14 as a ballerina , whilst preparing for the ozzie ballet school.  The old injury  was compounded many times. Yoga kept me up right and strong .

The last L4L5 injury was  in 2010 ~I was   teaching makeup for photography at tafe, when one day my spine just gave up.  I was such a mess  they  put me on  a disability pension  indicating they believed at 50 yrs of age, there was no hope for me . That was  in 2010.

2017   THE BUTTERFLY emerges … in brief~~after  7 long years  on the floor~ living as a recluse ~ I have healed my spine and my legs but cannot feel my feet… Yet.

LATE 2017     fell  on a clean slippery floor and broke my left upper fema..aka my hip, tore right shoulder cough. that was 4 months ago no . its  all healed very nicely.


GRATEFUL    My healing journey  lasted 7 years, during which time my  my agenda altered dramatically HEALING was all that mattered…. the yoga school partially closed  I only  taught 3 or 4 Classes a week~ I visited  Magnetic Island  off the coast of Townsville many times  ~~as part of my healing process.

THE injury was my greatest alli. My life has changed in ways I could never have imagined . Now I’m committed to NEVER allowing any pain of any kind to persist.  I now know the injury occurred only because I  ignored the pain for 30 odd years. To make life tolerable I took pain relief everyday. I became an addict . The legal drugs destroyed my bone density . By the time I was 50 , my old injured spine just  rumbled.

NOW MY DAY consists of zero stress, eating really well, not working  for more than 3 hrs a day. I  garden ,  I dance and stretch  every day.   I walk everywhere , I have no mobile phone~I use a camera and a landline.

MY OLD OFFICE….the yoga room….due to 3 massive floods late 2017  it closed.. I am now living in it and i LOVE IT


In 2001  I  studied permaculture ~ organic sustainable farming in 2001, with local permaculture guru , Graeme George.  Now i grow organic herbs for all of my  medicinal needs .


1987-Whilst living in Washington DC, my hubbies home town, I began an on line Naturopathy course of which I completed herbalism and Iridology,  but it was  cut short abruptly when I decided to leave my hubby and come home. So even though I did not get a diploma I know alot and apply it all  daily. I hope I  can be of use to you.  I do know this , if we are to rely on our doctors  to usher us to  into old age we may be very disappointed.


If you managed to read all of this ~ thank you. MY intent is to be of use to you , to  build you up , to make you realize that you are amazing and that  you  can  heal your own body .The only thing that is missing is information. Once the body becomes more alkali than acidic we begin to think differently, we become smarter ! or a better way to say that is~ when we r alkali , we are simply the best version of ourselves.
