Putting her career on the back burner for the last few years, Gruzlewski has been spending her days looking after her bubbly three-year-old daughter, Olivia and soaking up the Gold Coast lifestyle. “Everyday the weather is fabulous, there’s very little traffic and we certainly do have the best beaches and the best attitude in the world,” she tells myGC.

Salt Road photographer

Gold Coast Treasure: Salt Road

We’ve all seen incredible photos and perfect barrels or epic sunrises taken right here on the Gold Coast. Well many of the stunning images are captured by Salt Road.

The man behind the lens capturing Salt Road’s epic photos is Jamie Dickson, who told myGC he is always on the hunt for the next great shot.

Dickson snaps anyone he can get, from pros through to locals and visitors slogging it out and always manages to capture a frame that represents an incredible split second of life. Dickson is passionate about surf photography, but his business has grown to now include videography and designing and manufacturing apparel.

Dr Libby Weaver

Gold Coast Treasure: Dr Libby Weaver

Dr Libby Weaver is on a mission to help people take charge of their health and happiness.

An internationally acclaimed nutritional biochemist, Dr Libby knows everything there is to know about achieving and maintaining ultimate health and well-being.

“I originally studied nutrition and dietetics, and then want to on and did a PHD in biochemistry. With my original training in nutrition I bring that together with my knowledge biochemistry which is essentially all the inner workings of the body,” she tells myGC.

She has written eight best-selling books, travelled the world as a highly acclaimed speaker, and can count celebrities Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness as celebrity clients.

“My approach has three pillars to it – the biochemical (the inner workings), the nutritional (the foods and nutrients that are essential to make all the inner workings happen efficiently) and the emotional (where I help people answer the questions ‘why they do what they do when they know what they know’).”

Check out Dr Libby’s tips for improving your health and wellbeing in the video below:

These are Dr Libby’s top health tips:
• Instead of focusing of eating less of something that isn’t good for you, focus on eating more of whole real food.
• To become breath aware. A lot of people live on adrenaline and it can cause a host of problems.
• To stay in touch with what a gift life is. When we feel grateful we can’t be stressed.

Dr Libby will soon be blogging regularly on myGC, so keep a look out for her posts. In the meantime, learn more about Dr Libby here: www.drlibby.com/
