She found that she couldn’t fully cover-off everything she wanted to in her appointments, so she created this website to refer her clients to for further information on various topics.
Lisa also found that people were incredibly confused by the overwhelming amount of (often conflicting) information available out-there. And instead of listening to their own body, they are listening to everybody. This was creating a lot of stress in these people, who were becoming obsessed with their health, or rather the lack thereof.
But what you DO need to do is simply develop a healthy interest, and a healthy balance in your diet, and in your life! Health is all about happy mediums (where required Lisa encourages people to dial it up, or tone it down). Extreme ‘anything’ is not good for you. To be well you need to practice moderation in all things (diet, exercise, and lifestyle).
For the most part:
Eat a whole-food diet that is predominantly fresh, varied, and seasonal
Make sure you eat it mindfully
Drink filtered water
Approx. 30ml of water per kg of your body weight
Minimise your anti-nutrients
Sugar, coffee, alcohol, cigarette smoking, recreational drugs, and medication
Exercise 3—5x weekly
Mild to moderate intensity
Get good sleep, and have good sex
Be positive, have fun, laugh, and relax with positive people
Believe and have faith in something bigger than yourself
Firstly, seek guidance. Find a reputable, experienced health professional via an informational source that makes good sense to you. Go to see this person for specific advice, or read what they suggest you do for general health. Incorporate their theories into your lifestyle for a period of time.

Primarily, follow internal guidance
Listen to your body. It is the only real expert on you.
It has the final say.
