The Natural News, Public Lecture by Heath Daly.

Heath Daly & Emma Gilbert

On Sunday I attended a public lecture (Cost: $15) held at La Tropicana cafe in Fremantle, it’s a lovely setting for a talk and holds a mish-mash of chairs, cushions & health interested folk.

Heath Daly, our charismatic host, runs The Raw Kitchen Cafe & Smoothie Shop in the Freo markets, as well as being a practicing naturopath, homeopath & former lecturer at the Australian College of Natural Medicine! We’re in good hands here.

As is the case when you stumble upon someone with a profound passion for something, I found myself effortlessly absorbing everything Heath had to say as he passed on his knowledge during our captivating and inspiring, yet never evangelical, hour and a half lecture.

These were the topics covered:

– The mineral deficiency causing a major public health concern in Australia (Iodine!)
– Raw seaweed and why it’s the number 1 supplement for the modern age
– The single best way to increase energy (and it isn’t a supplement or exercise!) (Sleep 10 hours a night, go with your circadian rhythms ie. wake up before the sun, sleep before midnight)
– The best immune booster known to science (Vitamin D / sunshine!)
– The power of groups – Introducing the Detox Train (This will be covered more in the next lecture)

The other big tip he gave us was to drink 2 glasses of water ever morning upon waking to clear out toxins & refresh the brain. I did that this morning and I have to say I do feel more ‘alert’ than usual, but of course I’ll do it for a few days to see if I really notice a difference 🙂

I seriously enjoyed Heath’s lecture and so did the other 30 or so attendees from what I could tell!

There will be many future lectures & I’ll definitely be there. If you are interested please contact for more info & upcoming session dates 🙂

Be well,

    Sleep is very precious to me, I hate feeling tired. I will try the two glasses of water trick too, they also say to put a slice of lemon in the water 🙂

    I had 10 hours last night and woke up feeling so good this morning! Really balanced, calm and happy 🙂

    We have a lemon tree so I’ll lemon it up too! Just be careful of ze teeth, as the lemon can strip the enamel. xo

    Speaking of sleep, here’s one of my favourite articles on why sleep is important for a whole bunch of things, and how to normalize your sleep patterns

    Also, a colleague of mine adapted the Feldenkrais method and yogic practices to create something called ‘Sleeping Sominars’. These are designed to help people get a better nights rest. He talks about the how and why of sleep as well on his site
