All about Nutrition and Body Functions video series.

From my learning years about nutrition, health and wellness I spent a lot of time to listening to Barbara O’Neill from The Misty Mountain Health Retreat in Australia. “Barbara O’Neill, a qualified naturopath and nutritionist, who is also an international speaker on natural self-healing. She has raised eight children and is a specialist in women’s and children’s health. She is also the health director of the successful Misty Mountain Health Retreat mentioned above. Barbara is passionate about3 good health and natural healing. She believes in giving the body optimum conditions in order for it to heal itself. Barbara has a true gift of healing. She is a popular national and international speaker, with the ability to make complex health principles simple. With much life experience in caring for children and adults, she is able to understand your particular needs with a caring and confident manner. Barbara is a gifted public speaker who has an intimate knowledge of how the body works and has numerous talks on most aspects of health available on DVDs or from the Web.” And this is where I found her, on the web. Her amazingly educational lectures are available for free on youtube and are a great way to educate yourself about health and nutrition, body’s conditions, how your own body works, processes and mechanisms that are happening in the body to make you understand it better and much more. Videos are very detailed and unbelievably easy to absorb and understand, even if Barbara talks about complicated things from the medical point of view. You don’t really need to go to the doctor for answers, you will probably get most of them from those videos. Videos are divided by subject, so it’s easy to recognize the one of your interest. She covers vast amounts of topics from Immune system, hormonal imbalances, the liver, importance of sunshine, acid – alkaline balance, child’s nutrition, you name it…; And on top of that her ozzy accent is just adorable 😉
