A new look!
In nature, nothing stays the same. The seasons are continually changing and we either embrace the warmth, new life and hopefulness of a sunny spring day, or perhaps shiver and huddle against the cold winter winds. And so too are our lives. Change is a constant companion and we can either embrace it, or create resistance. Our change, as we welcome the new location and growth of Holistic Health Melbourne, is a beautiful logo that perfectly reflects our philosophy. Read more ...

Step Into Spring ... without the sniffles!
Spring is always welcomed after the long dark and cold days of winter. It’s a time of new growth and transformation. The days become longer, the temperature increases and the trees grow their new leaves again. It’s a time of new growth and transformation, a time to come out of hibernation!
However, for many people, Spring also means the return of sniffles and sinus issues as hay fever symptoms rear return once again. Here are a few handy hints to help you to have a sniffle-free Spring!

Is your body talking to you?
Imagine that your body had its own intelligence, separate from your conscious mind and thinking processes. Imagine that your body knew what was best for you and worked hard to maintain balance and health, despite any habits, attitudes or beliefs that may make this task difficult.
However, unless you are aware of this and good at listening to your body, your initial solutions may make the problem worse. The science of Kinesiology can gently and quickly find out what your body wants you to know. It’s interesting that your body will always tell you when something has been bothering you for too long.

The Starfish Story
Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions.
The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”
The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.”
The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one!”
adapted from The Star Thrower, by Loren Eiseley (1907 – 1977)
“A single, ordinary person still can make a difference – and single, ordinary people are doing precisely that every day.”
— Chris Bohjalian, Vermont-based author and speaker
We all have the opportunity to help create positive change, but sometimes you may find yourself thinking, “I’m already busy, and how much of a difference can I really make?” I think this is especially true when we’re talking about addressing massive social problems like tackling world hunger or finding a cure for cancer, but it pops up all of the time in our everyday lives, as well. You are probably already making a difference in some way and are not aware of it. So perhaps this story will serve as a reminder for you. You might not be able to change the entire world, but at least you can change a small part of it, for someone.
They say that one of the most common reasons we procrastinate is because we see the challenge before us as overwhelming, and that a good way to handle that is to break the big challenge down into smaller pieces and then take those one at a time – like one starfish at a time. And to that one starfish, it can make a world of difference.
