The success of your Bowen Treatment rests with both your treatment and what you do to support your body in the days after your treatment. Iron in combination with Vitiamin C is the greatest supportive measure for repairing and balancing muscle. Why Vitamin C? Well, it’s important for maximising the uptake of iron into your muscles. How does it do that? As an anti-oxidant, Vitamin C prevents the iron you’ve ingested from forming into insoluble compounds that can’t be absorbed. In other words it takes every last bit of iron you eat and makes sure the body gets to use it. This includes your iron hungry muscles and red blood cells that both rely on the iron compound in haemoglobins to transport oxygen. Needless to say, the more haemoglobins you have the better your oxygen supply, which is very important for repairing the muscles we’re fixing. But remember, for Vitamin C to move all that iron into your blood and into your muscles, the iron has to be in your stomach first. This doesn’t happen by magic, you need to be eating that iron so it can get there. So if you don’t have red meat or green leafy vegetables in your diet, chances are your muscles won’t be getting any of those ‘home improvements’ our Bowen Therapy wants to do. A bowl of greens six times a week will go a long way to making sure your muscles and Bowen Therapy will be in tune with one another. It’s all about balance, what you do to help you is just as important as what we do to help you. So serve up that salad, make that stir fry or steam some vegies…there’s iron in them there greens.
