NEW Food as Medicine date for Sydney 22 Nov - book now!

Becca Crawford

You asked for it, so we are doing it! As my 2 upcoming Food as Medicine talks in Sydney in November are fully booked we are running another (last and final!) talk on Friday 22 Nov 9am - 5.30pm.

This not-to-be-missed full day talk will empower you with all the information, tools and resources you need to optimise your health.

Learn about nutrition and health in a way that you’ve never heard it presented before.

The morning talk focuses on the fundamentals of robust nutrition where I dive into what we biologically designed to eat and not eat, and the importance of the source, processing and preparation of our food. I bust mainstream myths that have contributed to an epidemic of chronic illness and degenerative disease. I discuss the 8 foundations of health and how to make our lifestyle choices more congruent with our biology to switch on our genes for the best.

Australia’s leading holistic dietician, GAPS practitioner and advocate of regenerative farming- Marieke Rodenstein from The Nutrition Practice - will hone in on the fundamentals of robust gut health (including how to weed, seed, and feed the gut and the factors that affect our gut and hence our overall health).

What sets this talk apart from any other talk you’ll hear on nutrition and ancestral diets is the comprehensive HOW TO manual that you’ll receive that will SET YOU UP FOR LIFE including all my meal formulas, list of recommended practitioners, shopping lists, healthy swap table, macronutrients ratios and so much more.

The afternoon session focuses on reducing environmental toxicity in our home and how to healthy swap pharmaceuticals, your personal care products and household cleaning products to all natural, toxic-free, yet cost effective versions in a positive and empowering way to create a toxic free haven for your family.

A delicious organic wholefoods lunch will provided including bone broth, ferments, activated nuts, vegetables, raw milk cheese, preservative free pastured cured meat (and of course some artisan raw dark chocolate).

This is our last talk in Sydney so book quickly to avoid disappointment. We will not be running these sessions next year as the Australian tour ends at the end of this year. This session is being run because of popular demand to deal with the long wait list.


Mould Workshop with Building Biologist and Naturopath - 5 Sept

Becca Crawford


Hello lovelies!

Due to the unprecedented number of questions I get asked daily on how to deal with mould (both in buildings and in the body) and the fact that my last mould gathering was fully booked with a long wait list, I am excited to announce that I am running another mould gathering co-presenting with building biologist Kelly Abeleven from Building Biology NSW and naturopath Emily Rose Yates from Soul Space


Our incessantly humid weather along with our geography and often the design of our homes, makes Sydney houses ripe for mould growth. Mould is toxic to everyone and should never be ignored. Having experienced mould in 2016 and seeing how it caused my and my kids health to unravel, I appreciate first hand how harrowing mould can be for both your home and your body! That is why I have made it one of my missions to educate people on it and to empower them with the right tools and resources to deal with it. 

We will go through the 4 step MOULD PROTOCOL Kelly and I put together that deals with how to tackle mould both in your home and in your body. Emily will talk about typical mould symptoms along with a treatment protocol. 

Date: Thursday 5 Sept 7:15pm for 7.30pm sharp start. Finishing time approx. 9.30pm. This will be live-streamed on the Star Anise Essentials closed FB page accessible to Young Living members in my team for those who can not make it in person.

Venue: 23 Kent St Waverley (my home)

RSVP:  To secure your place please RSVP ASAP to

Cost: Free for Young Living members in my team. $40 for non members (pre-payment by credit card) and this amount will be reimbursed if the non member signs up to purchase a YL premium starter kit on the night on the essential rewards program. Please invite friends (especially those afflicted by mould!!) so we can educate as many people as possible on mould and the importance of toxic-free living. 



ACT and Perth Food as Medicine talks!

Becca Crawford


Dear Canberra and Perth friends!

You asked us to come to Canberra and Perth as part of our Food As Medicine Australian tour and we are obliging!

Myself and Marieke Rodenstein - Australia’s leading holistic dietician whose shares my passion for ancestral dietary principles and regenerative farming - will be presenting for a FULL DAY (9am-5:30pm) in ACT on Saturday 14th Sept and in Perth on Sunday 27th October. 

The morning Food as Medicine talk focuses on the fundamentals of robust nutrition and robust gut health, along with myth busting around conventional dietetic principles that have led to an epidemic of chronic illness and degenerative disease. I will educate you on how to kick dietary toxins to the curb and healthy swap with nutrient-dense food in an easy, positive and empowering way. I focus on the epigenetic factors that profoundly influence our and our children’s health diving into the 8 Foundations of Health that are all within our control. You will receive a comprehensive HOW TO manual that sets you up for life with all the information, tools and resources you need. 

A delicious organic wholefoods lunch is included followed by a healthy homes/ healthy swaps/ essential oils talk in the afternoon where the focus is on kicking the chemicals in your home environment especially in conventional personal care products and household cleaning products to create a toxic-free home environment (the ONLY environment you can control).

Make a FULL DAY of optimising your health by learning how to increase nourishment and reduce dietary and environmental toxins to become the best possible version of yourself.

Hi Soulla, I just wanted to say thankyou to you and Marieke for such an eye opening, informative, passionate, mind blowing day yesterday. Not only did I feel close to tears at times realising how much I have to learn but also walked away on the biggest high of inspiration, motivation and determination. I feel like I woke up yesterday!!!!! What you are doing is incredible and I feel so lucky to have been able to witness this epic work you’re doing. I would have loved to have talked more but to be honest I was quite star struck. Not only are you incredibly beautiful in person, to be in the presence of someone who is so unbelievably driven, committed and lit up is something amazing. An experience I will remember forever. Thank you! thank you! thank you! 💙
