Research has shown ditching sugary drinks in favour of water has a tangible impact on cavities in children's teeth. One NZ school adopted a 'water only' policy for drinks and asked parents to provide healthy lunches, and what happened? Over seven years the average number of cavities dropped 'significantly' and the number of extractions due to decay halved.

Love watching Australia's favourite herb nerd Reece Carter - Naturopath wax lyrical on campus about why he chose ginger as a key ingredient for his first liquid tonic DOSE. He designed this concoction to restore the body's energy systems, support healthy cognitive function and improve resistance to stress.

A centuries-old Chinese medicine has been found to potentially aid in the treatment of tuberculosis. In a promising study, the ancient remedy artemisinin stopped the ability of tuberculosis-causing bacteria to become dormant. This stage of the disease often makes the use of antibiotics ineffective.

Tuberculosis killed 1.8 million people last year according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Life-saving malaria drug artemisinin also shows promise in the treatment of tuberculosis

"This isn't about avoiding or demonising consumption. It's about asking what would happen if we looked to optimise it and to maximise what is most important in life.

"One of my personal favorite boundaries is: 'I am unwilling to absorb anyone else’s energy. I want to be aware of it, but I’m unwilling to absorb it.' This boundary was such a huge paradigm shift for me. Prior to enacting it, I was somewhat like a sailboat, just floating whichever way the wind blew me."
