Grandma’s Remedies – Honey, the wonder balm for your skin

Don’t just put honey on your bread, try it on your skin. We’ve all used

it to soothe a sore throat, but Grandma always found it just as good

on the outside as on the inside. She used it on burns, rashes, prickly

heat and sores that wouldn’t heal. It really was a wonder treatment

for her. And there’s lots of current research to back her up. Packed

with Vitamin B and anti-bacterial properties, most microorganisms

won’t grow in honey because of its low water activity. It contains the

enzyme ‘glucose oxidase’ which produces hydrogen peroxide when

it comes in contact with human skin – making a useful wound

cleanser. Another powerful antibiotic ‘methylglyoxal’ (MGO) is also

found in most honey varieties, however manuka honey – an

Australian native – contains it in such high quantities it is now used

on previously untreatable skin ulcers. And a Cochrane Library study

suggests honey can speed up the healing rate for mild burns by as

much as four days. So next time you’re stuck for something to put on

a scrape or burn, reach past the jam and grab the honey pot…it

might be a tastier solution than a visit to the chemist.

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.
