Hi I’m Gillian – a Web Designer, Web Developer, Artist, and Blogger from Auckland.

I spent many years in the health and fitness industry, then decided to further my education. I took a business degree which I completed in the year 2000.  I have since then been a web designer and developer for small business sites. I love learning, last year I did a Web Writing course and as a result, got started on this Blogger site; building the site surrounding issues I feel passionate about; which is supporting those who are protecting the planet, using safe alternative medicine when possible, and promoting “eco-friendly” products and services, that help sustain the environment and reduce our “carbon footprint”.

Like most people, I am worried about the neglect and damage that is being done by our throw-away culture, and what is being done by large corporations, big pharma, and governments, to our planet.

These are just some of the global issues we are facing:

  • Climate Change.
  • Pollution. …
  • Global warming. …
  • Waste disposal. …
  • Ocean acidification. …
  • Loss of biodiversity. …
  • Deforestation. …
  • Ozone layer depletion.

50 years ago we did not have the health problems we have now, what with all the GMOs and artificial substitutes we now ingest. This is causing a flood of health issues the medical profession is simply not equipped to deal with. Alternative remedies can offer some solutions before they get to be full-blown major illnesses.

First of all, a disclaimer:  I am not a medical expert, therefore any opinions or discussions featured in this website are for educational purposes.  I write about my own experiences (or provide links to other “alternative” websites), and you should never substitute our advice for your own medical care; you should always seek advice from your own doctor.

I believe if we educate more widely, then more people could weigh up their options, instead of just going down the route of mainstream medicine.

Alternative Practitioners need all the help they can get, to publicize their services in the community.  Charities that defend the helpless and help save and protect the planet, also need more publicity. I provide a free directory listing on my site. For that reason I have created this blog. Every extra bit of publicity aids in the quest to get educated and informed.

If you would like an ad placed on this website to promote your eco-health business, and need someone to create graphic art work i.e. animated gifs, please contact me as I can produce artwork.

I offer free product reviews and business listings.
