Meet Bobby, the Green Organics pet dog.

Bobby was a homeless dog that came knocking on our door on a cold rainy afternoon in year 2000. Drenched in water, Bobby was invited into our home for a warm bath and some tasty food.

He was then taken to the nearest RSPCA shelter for his owner to come claim him.

A week passed by but there was still no response. Time was ticking! Bobby needed a new home, or he was going to be put down.

We decided to invite this little treasure into our Green Organics family. Bobby is now one of the longest serving members of the Green Organics team and will be celebrating his 11th birthday on the 5th of May this year. He has brought so much joy and happiness into our lives.

RSPCA has done tremendous work for neglected animals. Support to raise funds for the RSPCA by participating in this years Million Paws Walk. Register today at http://www.rspca.org.au

Breast Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence

Breast Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence

Breast Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence

Breast cancer is the most common cancer and cancer related deaths among females in Australia. 

Breast cancer generally affects women after the age of 40 with 1  in 11 women being diagnosed before the age of 75. Research and medical intervention have come along way and survival rates are better than ever before. 

With the advances in today’s medical world, breast cancer is no longer a death sentence. Successful treatment is quite high, but early diagnosis is necessary.

Early diagnosis has been a big key at stabilising the mortality rates. Current advice is that women should ‘get to know their breasts’ and find out what’s ‘normal’ for them, rather than checking breasts in a regimented and prescriptive fashion.

Kill The Nasty Flu Virus With a Hot Drink

Kill The Nasty Flu Virus With a Hot Drink

Kill The Nasty Flu Virus With a Hot Drink

Winter is fast approaching. This means the flu virus is on its way.

The problem with the flu virus is that it’s highly contagious and travels long and far. A powerful sneeze can cause the virus to travel 30 metres across the  room.

When we cough or sneeze, microscopic droplets of water and the virus enter the air. Dry, cold conditions in winter or an air conditioned office dry out the droplets, helping the virus linger in the air. The dry air also dries out nasal passages, which helps the virus stick.

That’s scary. If you are stuck in the office with just one of these flu ridden carriers, you could become easily infected if your immune system is not at full force.

How to Forget Him or Her

How to Forget Him or Her

How to Forget Him or Her

You can never forget someone whom you’ve had a relationship with. The stronger the love, the deeper the wound, the deeper the memories and deeper the pain.

Experts will tell you to forget, move on and let go. Don’t listen to sad songs, don’t look at his/her pictures and don’t hold on to the memories. I’ll tell those experts to jump off a cliff, because that is the only way you can truly forget.

Now I’m in no way suggesting suicide is the answer. So please don’t be jumping off cliffs or bridges.

What I am suggesting is that memories is part of our life experiences whether good or bad, and we should not force ourselves to forget. It is natural for you to still think about this person whom you’ve given and shared so much together.

There are only 3 sure ways I know of that will help with the situation. See if it can work for you.

Ways to Protect Yourself From Harmful Chemicals

We are surrounded by toxins. It is in our homes, on the streets, in our workplace, in the products we use and in the foods we eat.

The constant exposure to harmful toxins can lead to potential health risk such as cancers, respiratory illnesses, problems with reproductive health and so forth. Limiting exposure to chemicals takes a conscious effort.

It would be impossible for us to eliminate all toxins, but making small changes in one or more areas can help protect yourself and your family and lessen your body’s toxic burden. Here are some approaches that will help decrease your toxic load:

The Christmas holiday season is almost over. For most of us, this means going back to work and spending time in front of the computer.

Working For a Great Arss This Summer

Working For a Great Arss This Summer

No…. I’m not talking about working for your ‘boss’. I’m talking about something a little bit closer to home, your beautiful butt.

I’ll admit it! When I walk behind someone on the street, whether the person is male or female, I’ll check out the person’s arss.

It’s the attribute that stands out the most when looking at someone from the behind, and its one of the most alluring attributes to have for attracting guys.

Unfortunately for us ladies, having a great bikini arss this summer will not be that easy. Thanks to the female hormone oestrogen, fat that enters our body goes directly to our thighs and lower waist.

The flabby butt will not be easy to shape, but we still have time! Today is the 25th of November.  With dedication and commitment, we can trim, tone and shape our arss into a butt quenching machine just in time for Christmas (in 4 weeks).

It’s time to mark out your butt quenching calender and start your arss shaping regime, otherwise the only great arss you’ll be getting this summer is your ‘boss’.
