Everyday Additive Free co-author and social media sensation Joanne Ling is coming to Bundaberg for an additive-free masterclass.
Joanne will be joined by Bundaberg’s Anita Cooney to run the additive-free masterclass to help people become more aware of the impact additives can have on your health and wellbeing.
Born and bred in Bundaberg, Anita described herself as time-poor mum who couldn’t through altering her family’s diet would be too hard.
“I was a typical time poor mum who thought living low tox and additive free was too time consuming,” she said.
“I stumbled across some natural solutions and recipes online about three years ago and (I) couldn't believe how easy and effective they were.
“I can honestly say it’s changed my life.”
Anita said changing her diet was easier than she thought and was now referred to as the DIY guru among friends, and she hopes to help others find it easy at the additive-free masterclass.
“The simplicity of the recipes has made it incredibly easy for our family to live mostly additive free and reduce the chemicals and toxins in our home,” she said.
“I even run my own workshops twice a week now teaching others how to create their own additive free lifestyle.
“My most popular simple swap is three ingredient antibacterial hand wash.
“I also make everything from body scrubs and skincare to cleaning paste and dishwasher tablets each with only a few chemical free ingredients.”
She said anyone could do this regardless of age, knowledge or income, and all the information and supplies are easily accessible locally.
Anita said Joanne decided to go additive-free in 2013 to assist her three-year-old daughter’s behaviour and hasn't looked back since.
“She (Joanne's daughter) was only three at the time and was booked in to be assessed for ADHD,” Anita said.
“She was quite aggressive, you struggled to reason or talk with her and was always sick.
“As a result of going additive-free Joanne was able to cancel that appointment with the clinic and everything changed for the better.
“Since then Joanne has helped to change lives locally and across the country though her website, online training and recently published book.”
The additive-free masterclass will be held in the Burnett Riverside H20 function room on 29 February for more information click here.
