Old School Remedies – come on, it’s wafer-thin









If there’s that one time of the year you’ll eat too much, it’s at Christmas – the opportunity to munch, combined with the obligatory visits to several Christmas Day and Boxing Day dinners can find you having to undo that belt a notch or three. We’ve all been there, suffering the heavy discomfort of wishing we hadn’t eaten that third serve of plum pud and custard. So what to do? You could just lie there in self pity…when it comes to digestion, time will heal most things. But if time is one thing you don’t have, the all time favourite cure-all has to be ginger. Take it crushed, take it in a jube, take it pickled, take it as a cordial, or even as ginger beer (make sure it contains real ginger) and chances are you will feel a lot better for it. This simple little rhizome has been proven to reduce nausea of all kinds…including motion sickness and morning sickness, so a good dose will also help with ‘After Christmas Dinner Sickness’ too.

Did you know?

“Tom Bowen’s Technique Modality was named in his honour ‘Bowen Therapy‘ years after his death in 1982.”

“Tom Bowen never used his Technique in combination with any other modality because it was clear that the work became less effective or ceased to function at all.”

“Tom Bowen trained only six people in his modality. Mr Ossie Rentsch the founder of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (Bowtech) is one of these six. Sadly, at this time none of them reside in Townsville.”

“Everyone is better with Tom Bowen’s Therapy in it’s original form.”
