Qualifications and areas of expertise for Lisa Quain
Firstly I have the belief that the basis to all life is plants, without plants life would cease to exist, and that to fully understand human biology you need to have an understanding of plant biology and visa versa.
I have had a life long passion into natural therapies by using simple foods instead of having to "pop pills" and I believe that almost all illnesses in humans are caused by nutrient deficiencies, the same as in plants.
Plants and humans are far more alike than most people realise, and have the same needs for life, food, water, air, nutrients, and the opposite sex to reproduce.
To have a healthy body, you need to eat healthy food.

I take a holistic approach to gardening and farming, where as I work with nature and the elements rather than against.
I am a lateral thinker and look at the broader bigger picture, and the balance of nature, while still considering the little things like the biodiversity of the micro flora, fauna and insects and their needs, roles and effects.
Being a recycling, re-use fanatic, I very often come up with outstanding ideas and solutions for cost free ways of solving problems.
Fully qualified theraputic massuse and beauty therapist
In 1976 I became a fully qualified [diploma] in beauty therapy and theraputic massuse, and went on to study reflexology and accupressure in depth, from there I further developed my passion for all forms of natural, alternative and complimentary healing.
At the time my passion in gardening and herbal healing developed full blown and I researched everything I could about health, diet and nutrition in depth.
Due to extensive research and trial and error on myself as well as friends, I have discovered the best, easiest, and healthiest ways to cure weight problems and an overall improvement to health and cancer protection.
When I was in my late 20's I accidentally found out I am a "natural" reiki healer, which is a form of spirtual healing.
Over the years my profound passion for healing has given me the opportunity to find very simple, easy, cost free natural cures to a great many common health problems.
I have also been blessed and most fortunate to have known some of the healthiest people, who were not just very elderly, [late 80's to late 90's] but they were still fit and active, living full lives, and . . . extremely wize, and I feel honoured that they shared what they have learnt throughout life with me, I just want to share it and pass it on too.
