My mother was a nurse. In fact she nursed in the first ICU to be set up in Australia, at St Vincent’s hospital in 1961. She had extraordinary nursing knowledge, and yet the most effective health intervention I picked up from her and continue to recommend to my own patients, is her recommendation of white zinc cream for acne!

Choosing organic food whenever we can is an important way to reduce our intake of pesticides that are found in our food. Growing your own food (and being aware of what the seeds, soil and water you are using may contain) is a fantastic way to get more organic food in our diet. And being aware of the foods that are found to have the most pesticides is also helpful when the budget doesn’t quite stretch far enough to buy organic for everything that we can’t grow.

As your son or daughter are growing quicker than you thought imaginable, their bodies are susceptible to growth plate problems.

The term “osteochondroses” is given to describe a group of growth-plate disorders in the young skeleton where the progress of bone growth is disrupted by a lack of blood flow to the tissue resulting in impaired healing.

It usually affects the active child between the ages of 8-15, with 80% of them occurring in the lower limb.

Although the exact cause is unknown, it is believed that chronic repetitive stress on the growth plate site is the key reason.

As we all know, age is just a number, right? What does 60, 70, 80 years old mean anyway? It just means that a little extra work needs to be put into maintaining bone and muscle strength and decreasing the natural decline that occurs over the years. Studies have shown that bone mineral density for one, begins to decrease between ages of 30 and 40. Once this decrease begins, women lose roughly 8 percent of their bone mass per decade and men 3 percent. Bones are remodelled all throughout our life, so as the saying goes “use it or lose it”! All stresses that are applied to bones during physical activity are vital in maintaining bone strength and mass, so stress your bones to slow the decline process!
