It’s stress time, the bills are coming in, work wants 25-hour days and the kids absolutely need the 64-gig 4G Ipad instead of the 16-gig cheapy with wi-fi. Feeling your hair turning grey yet? Well, it’s not just the follicles that suffer when the pressure is on. And while you’re burning the midnight oil, you’re burning your minerals and vitamins too…particularly the ones that could help you stay calm.
So let’s look at one of our little helpers and what they can do for you – Vitamin B.
The B-group consists of eight different vitamins the body needs in small doses, but all are vital for your metabolic processes such as energy production, red blood cell synthesis, nerve function and brain processes. When your body has had a stress response, the adrenalin and cortisol it produces burns up the various Vitamin B-s in your bloodstream and leaves you with nothing to spare when the adrenalin goes away.
Most B-s cannot be stored by the body as they are water soluble, which means you’ve got to keep ingesting them regularly as part of a nutritious and well balanced diet. They can also be easily destroyed through food processing, mixing with alcohol and extended cooking.
Good sources of Vitamin B-s include wholemeal cereal grains, sesame seeds, legumes, wheatgerm, nuts, yeast, pork, milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, egg, leafy green vegetables, liver, kidney, fish, poultry, red meats, mushrooms, cauliflower and citrus fruits.
Symptoms of Vitamin B deficiency can include irritability, decreased coordination, lethargy, fatigue, muscle weakness, anxiety, intestinal upset and muscle pain. If you have concerns that you may have a vitamin deficiency you should have them diagnosed by a doctor. Vitamin supplements can be taken as a supplement for a balanced diet and should only be taken as directed by the manufacturer on the side of the bottle or by dieticians or accredited natural therapists.

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.
What is the History of Bowen Therapy in Townsville, Queensland Australia?
Bowen therapy was first taught in Townsville in July 1991, by Bowtech Founders Ossie and Elaine Rentsch. Benjamin Setter was at that course and opened the first Bowen Therapy Clinic in Townsville, Queensland, Australia in November 1991.
Since then, Benjamin and the dedicated Crew of Bowen Therapy Specialists at Setter’s Health Centre, have travelled around Australia and around the World to train with the best in Bowen Therapy, so that they can continue to offer an outstanding Bowen Therapy service to the community of Townsville, Queensland.
