Iris Ztarr's Bio.
For most of my life (since my late teens) I have been fascinated by health and healing, nutrition and food. As a young child from the age of 7 to 17, I suffered from intense eczema on my hands. It was so bad in winter I would have to wear thin plastic gloves to bed at night over the layer of cortisone cream prescribed to me on a regular basis by my doctor. The spaces between my fingers were red, open and weeping and they itched like crazy. I thought I would have this for the rest of my life. Radiation treatment didn't help nor did visits to a skin specialist. They only kept the symptoms in check without getting to the root cause of the problem.
When I left home at the tender age of 17 and moved back to the city my eczema miraculously disappeared, only to return again later when stressful life circumstances emerged in my early 20's. At this point in time I went to a naturopath for the first time in my life and realised that I could take control of my own health. This was the beginning of my fascination with health and healing and the power of our thoughts and beliefs to affect our overall state of well being. I learned that stress and diet play a large part in the state of our health.
I started to gain weight after the birth of my son. I yo-yo dieted for years, going to Weight Watchers, trying all kinds of diet and exercise regimes, as well gym membership. It was always the same: I would lose weight initially, but when I could no longer stand depriving myself, all the weight would come back plus some. I thought I had a willpower problem but this was not the case.
