Setting The Path Newsletter Part 2c: Essential Ingredients For A Balanced Body – Bowen Therapy And Iron.

So what does this mean for your Bowen Treatment?

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 Vitamin 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 you may ask? Vitamin C creates a magnetic response to draw iron out of the blood – filling breaches in muscles, and in doing so rebuilding and sustaining good muscle condition. This also leads to better oxygen supply, which is very important for the repairing of muscles (see the May 2012 edition for more info on Vitamin C). But remember, for Vitamin C to move all that iron out of your blood and into your muscles, the iron has to be in your blood in the first place. This doesn’t happen by magic, you need to be eating that iron to get it 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 steak four times a week will go along way to making sure your muscles and Bowen Therapy will be in tune with each other. It’s all about balance, what you do to help you is just as important as what we do to help you. So light the barbie and get eating.

Next month we’ll be looking at iron altervatives for those who prefer vegetables to their steak…
