It was an absolute honor to be able to spend this time talking about Barbara’s journey, and why she chose this path and how she started on this journey in the first place.

The interesting thing about this entire conversation is that throughout it and throughout her life, she sees the beauty in the body’s ability to heal itself if we only listen. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed created it for you.

Barbara O'Neill was born in 1953 in Ingleburn, NSW, Australia, a second child with one older brother and three younger sisters. Her father owned and operated a Shell Service Station at Lugarno, NSW, and Barbara had the misfortune to see her mother die at the young age of 51 from rheumatoid arthritis. Barbara's first work on leaving school was as a hairdresser and some years later trained and worked as a psychiatric nurse at North Ryde Psychiatric Hospital.

Barbara’s passionate interest in health knowledge led her to study all that she could and was particularly interested in cause and effect. In the mid 1990’s she obtained a Diploma in Naturopathy, and later in 2005 as a Nutritionist.

Barbara’s real healing success springs from the knowledge of the body’s ability to heal itself, and then working ‘with’ the body to achieve the healing response. In addition to her passion for health, Barbara embraced Christianity and became a Seventh-day Adventist at 26 years of age.

This put her on a new path to look at the human body in the light that it is not a product of random un-controlled evolution, but that it was intricately designed with all its inbuilt mechanisms to self-heal. Barbara was particularly inspired by the health writings of a 19th-century female writer Ellen G White.

After her marriage breakdown in 1993, Barbara put her energies into raising her six children and in 1996 moved to Queensland where she worked at Living Valley Springs Health Retreat as a Naturopath. It was here she renewed an old friendship with the Retreat Business Manager Michael O’Neill, and they were married in October 1997.

The following year, Barbara, and her family of now eight children, (Michael had two children), moved to Narbethong, Victoria where they started a health retreat for a non-profit organization. They continued there for nearly six years, and in 2003 relocated to their new property near Bellbrook, NSW.

They then started their new venture, Misty Mountain Health Retreat. Over the years Barbara has become a highly sort after health lecturer, as people appreciate her commonsense approach to health problems. Barbara’s lecture series have circulated around the globe via video, DVD and YouTube.

They have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and have brought relief to thousands of suffering individuals as they embrace the simple and powerful laws of health. Barbara’s great passion and life work lies in the educating of people in the correct health principles that lead to longer, healthier, and happier lives.
