HOW TO CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT WITH HEALTHY HABITS
Friday 24th June 2016 | 6.30-9.00pm*
"95% of everything you do is because of habits" Aristotle
Health is a process of positive change and continual growth, it is a constant work in progress. You become healthier, not simply by making better decision, but by repeating the behavior of those better decisions over and over again until they become habitual, a lifestyle.
Anyone can do this & everyone can learn! All that is needed is a desire to change for the better and the ability to image what that would feel like.

We will discuss the very latest in science regarding today's understanding of 'habits and cover the following questions:
- What is a habit?
- Why are they so hard to break?
- How do we stop a had habit?
- How do we start and maintain a new habit?
Learn how to build, create and nourish healthy habits!

Detox Training explains the need for change in our understanding and application of detoxification, with Heath continuing the dialogue on how to access the natural flow of our optimal health.
Today we are faced with unprecedented levels of unnatural toxins that simply do not break down and circulate around and around our environment, of which we are a part, and hence a filter of.
These toxic compounds are bio-accumulating and sequestering in our fat cells and the fattiest organ in our body is the brain. Sadly, the fastest trending pathology facing our today is cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s leading the way, and hence detoxification is an important defence against this.
Detox Training is a protocol that teachers us how to monitor and nourish our body's natural detoxification processes in order to identify and eliminate these toxins from our fatty tissues. During this lecture, Heath will be explaining how to introduce a practical lifestyle adjustment into your own life, using food, supplements and natural interventions, specifically designed at up regulating the genes that cleanse both inside and out of the cells.
Use Detox Training to:
- Loose weight
- Break addictions
- Increase your energy
- Improve the lustre of your skin and eyes
- Improve general healing and wellbeing
THE MIND IN HEALTH | OUR SECRET WEAPON
Your greatest asset in the pursuit of health and happiness is your mind. Until recently though, the scientific world largely viewed the mind as a mystery and was greatly underestimating its role in our healing.

With some simple techniques and a commitment to practice, we can each take our health to the next level, no longer having to believe that we are powerless in the face of many health challenges.
In this presentation Heath Daly – naturopath & co-owner of The Raw Kitchen, will be discussing:
- The difference between the mind and the brain and how to optimise both for a better, healthier, more meaningful life
- How to train your mind to control your autonomic nervous system, your body’s endocrine system and its immune response
- How to dissolve the stress response in seconds
- The top 5 simple bio-hacks for upgrading your brain function

Learn which herbs are ideal for:
- Better sleep
- Hormone regulation

GUT HEALTH | The Key To Wellness
Friday 6th May 2016 | 6.30-9.00pm

In this lecture Heath Daly ND.HD will discuss the role that the gut linings play in health and how to fix a compromised gut barrier with herbs, functional foods and nutriceuticals.What foods, herbs and lifestyle factors play a role in maintaining healthy gut ecology?
Heath will also cover the latest science on the role that the microbiome (gut bugs) plays in health and how to ensure you have a diverse and healthy mix of gut bugs.
What happens when we take antibiotics?
How do we treat candida, SIBO and inflammatory bowel disorders?
“For those of us interested in taking control of our health, it becomes evident that the journey to maximise or rebuild our health begins with the gut. Building anything to last requires a solid base, a strong foundation. Health is no different; the solid base is gut ecology. Once a healthy gut is established, reclaiming health becomes a simpler task.” Heath Daly
