August News 

It's Healthy Children month at the clinic and this month's newsletter is packed full of healthy lunchbox ideas, home remedies for kids, natural kid's first aid, and child-friendly natural therapies we use all the time at the clinic, like homeopathy, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and certain supplements. 

Each Practitioner at the clinic treats babies and young children and sees first hand the benefits of doing so - better sleep, better appetite, calmer, improved immunity and improved digestion, just to name a few.  
Each acupuncture practitioner at the clinic has also recently had private training with the world renowned educator and author, Stephen Birch, specialising in paediatric acupuncture, which you can find out more about below. 

Treating Children & Babies With Acupuncture

Needles and children are not things you commonly think of co-existing harmoniously. In fact, needles and children conjure up horrific thoughts of tears, tantrums and heartache. So, why do we insist on introducing the two?

Getting Your Child To Eat Healthy Foods

Children are very impressionable, which can be a good or a bad thing when it comes to their diet. Most parents want their kids to eat a wide range of healthy foods, and the best way to do that is to model the kind of behaviour you want your children to adopt. Children tend to model their parents’ behavior, not their recommendations. It’s helpful to explain to your children why certain foods are not good for them. Show them the difference between natural foods like meats and vegetables, and processed snack foods, and tell them that only the natural foods will help their body to grow stronger.

Allergies, Recurrent Infections, Skin Conditions: Why We Treat Your Child's Gut

Over 70% of our immune system lives in and around the digestive tract; therefore having high levels of good bacteria in the digestive system is essential for building a strong immune system in growing children. In early childhood, your child’s digestive system is not yet fully mature. The first two years are the most critical. The gut microflora established during this period can greatly influence your child’s long-term immunity. If your child’s digestive health is poor and he is malnourished at this point, continue reading...


Healthy Lunchbox Ideas

A healthy diet is crucial in order to foster healthy, happy children. It’s easy to fall into the habit of giving kids the same food in their lunchboxes every day and more often than not, they tend to be packaged food because it’s just easier that way. However, not only will kids get bored with a daily diet of sandwiches, an apple and a bag of potato chips, it’s not ideal for their health to limit the variety of fresh foods they are eating. Preparing a healthy and interesting lunchbox does not need to be expensive or child-unfriendly. Here are our top 10 ideas which can add variety into your child's diet: continue reading...
