Alternative Health Townsville – Honey, the wonder balm for your skin

iStock_000017469216Small

Don’t just put honey on your bread, try it on your skin. We’ve all used it to soothe a sore throat, but the oldies always found it just as good on the outside as on the inside. Our ancestors used it on burns, rashes, prickly heat and sores that wouldn’t heal. And it remains a wonder treatment.

Packed with Vitamin B and anti-bacterial properties, most micro-organisms won’t grow in honey because of its low water activity. It contains the enzyme ‘glucose oxidase’ which produces hydrogen peroxide when it comes in contact with human skin – making a useful wound cleanser. Another powerful antibiotic ‘methylglyoxal’ (MGO) is also found in most honey varieties, however manuka honey – an Australian native – contains it in such high quantities it is now used on previously untreatable skin ulcers. A Cochrane Library study suggests honey can speed up the healing rate for mild burns by as much as four days. So next time you’re stuck for something to put on a scrape or burn, reach past the jam and grab the honey pot…it might be a tastier solution than a visit to the chemist.****

What is Bowen Therapy?

The Gentle Healing Technique

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that encourages the body to right itself. This technique involves a gentle roll over the muscle. By using a set system of these small moves from the base of the neck to the tips of the toes, the therapist stimulates the body’s innate healing system to realign and re-balance.Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is completely safe for the newborn baby to the frail and elderly. It is gentle, fast and an effective way to treat health concerns from sporting injuries to pain, stress and discomfort. Bowen Therapy stimulates the patient’s musculoskeletal system into realigning itself. The beauty of Bowen Therapy is that it will not interfere and works well with all medication and/or dietary supplements and is gentle but powerful. A treatment takes about one hour.
