In this episode we?ll meet Anne Gibson, who in 2004 was diagnosed with cervical cancer.? Having taken perfect health for granted for a long time, it was a wake-up call that changed her paradigm on everything. With a young family and a determination to regain her health, it was a time to reflect on the choices she had been making about where her food came from, her families lifestyle, home environment and products they were using. In this interview, Anne talks about the past, how she grew up helping her grandparents, how she dealt with being diagnosed with cervical cancer to how she started The Micro Gardener to help others grow their own food to recharge their health and lifestyle.
In this episode we?ll meet Canadian-born Kate Graham, who grew up with 5 sisters. Growing up Kate always was into some sort of sport and got into gymnastics but came to really dislike how they treated gymnastics. At the age of 12 she left and volunteered to become a coach instead and continued to do so in different areas of sports. At a later stage in her life she became a personal trainer and a yoga teacher. She also will share with us how her sister who late died set Kate up with a blind date with her now husband, the miracle of having her daughter, moving to Australia away from her family, to how to make The Sexy Mayan smoothie, to how to deal with people farting in her Yoga classes.
Last year Julie and her daughters' world turned upside down when one day her husband walked away from their house and never came back. They later found out he had had committed suicide but never knew why. This interview is about how Julie has dealt with the loss of her husband. It will also take you back to when Julie just turned 40 and became an Australian Bush Essence Practitioner. How she saw orange balls in her bathroom one day vacuuming, and thought she had cancer, when she started to see and communicate with angels and become a healer, found out why her husband committed suicide by communicating with him after he had passed away, and later got concrete proof confirming it, and at the end, a holiday of healing with her girls in Hawaii where she meets Pale - the Hawaiian Goddess.
