Nyape, Whoonga, Flakke & Zombie, are not some cute boy band names but are highly addictive and destructive drugs, which are far too freely available no only here on the South Coast but throughout South Africa.

When we find out we are expecting a baby, our to-do list starts filling up.

With all things, “hormone homeostasis” is the goal. As soon as our hormones are out of balance, a myriad of disease and undesirable symptoms occur. A healthy female should be producing at least 20mg of progesterone a day. I absolutely believe that the endocrine system and the need for balance, is over looked. We understand […]
At fifty-mumble and a half, I have worked around ill health for 33 years. My first job was in a pharmacy and it was here I started learning that there’s a pill for every ill and a potion for every emotion; until my child got sick we hit a dead-end with western medicine. He was misdiagnosed and traumatised by treatments and I had no option but to begin looking at what was available in the wider world. The more I explored, the harder it became to work in a chemist. Script after script with the exact same medicines for all the patients the doc saw that morning; drugs that clearly worked against each other and unnecessary meds were only the tip of the iceberg. Within the framework of the pharmacy I started exploring supplements and nutrition and discussing with the customers/patients, most of whom were receptive and, hearing it for the 1st time, keen to experiment. The more popular these ‘chats’ became with the customers, the less popular I became with the pharmacist and other staff, until it was finally time to leave and do it for and by myself. And the rest, as they say, is history. 9 years later and The Good Health Shop is still going strong. Born from the need in a community seriously lacking in HealthCare (but with an abundance of Sickness Care) I have trained as a Sclerologist in order to have some tools to assess why people’s health fails. Ongoing training for myself, as well as Lu and Rosalie, has us all equipped to deal with health concerns across the spectrum. We believe in Education and the power that knowledge brings us in the quest for Good Health.
