Eat Your Greens – Alternatives to Red Meat
So what does this mean for your Bowen Treatment?
Just to reiterate from last month, 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 hemoglobins to transport oxygen. Needless to say, the more hemoglobins you have the better your oxygen supply, which is very important for repairing the muscles we’re fixing (see May 2012 edition for more benefits from Vitamin C). 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 for it to 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.
Next month we’ll be looking at Bowen Therapy and children…because we don’t have to be old to feel pain.
What Is Bowen Therapy? What Can Bowen Therapy Do For Me?
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.
