  1. Hi Kev

    What a great website! A good design and great colors.

    My wife and I use turmeric on our food on a daily basis and we are in very good health.

    We haven’t tried juicing yet, so there’s something to consider!



    • Hi Roy,

      Thanks for that. Glad you enjoyed it. yes definitely give the turmeric a go. Your body will love you 🙂


  2. Hey Kev, great video! I love hearing stories about people changing their lives around. I’m a big believer if you don’t like what you’re doing, change it! And so many people don’t. They’d rather complain then take action. You’re so inspiring Olivia!

    • Hi Kate,

      Thanks so much for calling by. Yes I love talking to inspiring people and hearing their story. Yes you are so right, if you don’t like your life, change it! Olivia certainly did.

      Keep up your great work too.


  3. Nice video, very inspirational.
    Protein is very required in the diet. The importance cannot be overstated. So then, what would you say to a person that says we need meat for the proteins? Because I hear that a lot.


    • Hi Joyce,

      For me there is lots of protein in things like spinach and green vegetables, nuts and grains, in fact most veges have protein. If you are eating lots of plant food you will get adequate protein.
      There are in fact many body builders out there who eat just a plant based diet. I am sure Olivia will have some good answers for you too.

      Much love,


  4. Hey Kev,

    Great video once again mate. Wow what an inspiration, the kicker form me was respectfully ignoring the attempts of those around you to pull you back into the comfort zone, and I can relate to that very well.

    Olivia well done with what you have achieved so far, I like the way you’re using what you have right now to start something big, from humble beginnings. I wish you every success.


    • Hi Adam,

      Thanks for the great comments. Yes Olivia is out there getting out of her comfort zone for sure and kicking some big goals.

      Best wishes mate,


  5. Loved this interview! It’s really nice to hear stories that lead people to change their diet and lifestyle. Very inspirational! 🙂
    Looking forward to your next interview!

    • Thanks, Ingrida,

      She is a very inspiring lady and I know she inspires many people here in Australia with her devotion to health and juicing and I know many more around the world are hearing about her now. Thanks for calling by and hope to see you here again soon,


  6. Hi Kevin,

    I’d like to start by saying that I’m a big turmeric fan. I eat about a tablespoon per day – spread out over the day, generally with healthy fat and black pepper. Turmeric is remarkable medicine for so many things. I’m glad you’re spreading the word.

    Juice – not so much. It seems like to much of a pain. I generally just hook a couple of pieces out of the fruit bowl as I’m headed out the door. No dishwashing that way!

    Olivia has a great business going.

    Olivia, why did you choose to become self-employed and start your own business?

    All the best,


    • Hi Elizabeth,

      Yes turmeric is amazing stuff. A real healer 🙂 Juicing is one of the best things I do for my health and with people like Olivia you can’t help but get inspired to juice! haha. Hope you can try it soon. Olivia will be around soon to answer your question.

      Best wishes,


    • Hi Elizabeth,

      After discovering my passion for wellness a few years ago, I knew I wanted to create an authentic business with my new-found knowledge, to help people heal and reach optimal health. I also developed an entrepreneurial mindset and had a vision of running my own business and making my own product. It started with my personal website, and Organic Aura seemed like a perfect, natural extension to my personal brand 🙂
