Vitamin B – What’s in it for you?



There are eight B-group vitamins and they are essential for energy production, red blood cell synthesis and, well, lots of other things. These are all different chemicals and having just one means you’re not getting the rest. Here’s a quick break down of what each of those B-s stand for.

B1 – Thiamine; converts carbohydrates into energy, involved in DNA production and nerve function

B2 – Riboflavin; energy production

B3 – Niacine; metabolises glucose, fat and alcohol

B5 – Pantothenic Acid; needed for the oxidation of fatty acids and carbohydrates plus the synthesis of amino acids, ketones and antibodies

B6 – Pyridoxamine; metabolises amino acids and haemoglobin

B7 – Biotin; metabolises lipids, proteins and carbohydrates

B9 – Folic Acid; needed for cell division, particularly during pregnancy and for red blood cells

B12 – Cyanocobalamin; needed to produce blood cells in bone marrow, nerve sheaths and proteins

So if you’re going out to buy vitamin supplements, make sure those pills have all these goodies in them, because, face it, this is one lot of vitamins that are group, not an individual…

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.

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.

Welcome to Setter’s Health Centre and congratulations on taking the first step to taking your health into your own hands. Setter’s Health Centre is a local business which has been providing Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) to Townsville and surrounding areas since 1991.

The aim of Setter’s Health Centre has not altered in 20 years. The aim at Setters Health Centre is to focus on what your goals are for pain and symptom relief, how these fit into your life, and how to help you and your body to achieve realistic goals.

Whilst our treatments help to activate your body’s innate self-healing ability, your body will require certain things from you to help it achieve this healing. While we aim to help you achieve your goals, we are the assistant and your input in achieving these goals is integral!
