What is Bowen Therapy: Stress and Vitamin B -Stress and Road Rage

Today in Townsville it is raining cats and dogs.

It is stressful enough to drive in these kinds of conditions without adding other drivers road rage!

So let us discuss Vitamin B and Stress.

B-group vitamins are a group of 8 vitamins that the body needs in small doses but are vital for metabolic processes such as energy production, red blood cell synthesis, nerve function and brain processes. When a body has had a stress response, the body has increased its energy consumption and thus will increase its use of Vitamin B.

Most Vitamins within this group cannot be stored by the body as they are water soluble and so must be consumed regularly as part of a nutritious and well balanced diet. They are also easily destroyed through food processing, alcohol and extended cooking.

Good sources of Vitamin B include wholemeal cereal grains, sesame seeds, legumes, wheatgerm, nuts, yeast, pork, milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, egg, leafy green vegetables, liver, kidney, fish, poultry, red meats, mushrooms, cauliflower and citrus fruits.

Symptoms of Vitamin B deficiency can include irritability, decreased coordination, lethargy, fatigue, muscle weakness, anxiety, intestinal upset and muscle pain. If you have concerns that you may have a vitamin deficiency, these deficiencies must be diagnosed by a doctor. Vitamin supplements can be taken as a supplement for a balanced diet and should only be taken as directed by the manufacturer on the side of the bottle or by dieticians or accredited natural therapists.

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.
