March / April 2014

At the Clinic, we are very interested in researching ancient medicines – how they were made and their sources. For centuries people have cared for and treated illness with natural medicines made from plants and trees. Medicines that did not appear to have the severe side effects that we can find in the pages of the Mims.

When we follow the Indigenous tribes and realise how fit they were and how many hundreds of miles they walked carrying their possessions with them we ask questions such as “How did they stay so healthy, with apparently so little to help them?”. They had no supplements, vitamins and minerals as we know them. They only had their knowledge of the land and the plants that grew in their region.

They must have been infected as they travelled across this beautiful country of ours in such rough conditions. There would have been fevers, nausea and diarrhoea. The question is how were these conditions treated?

The tribes must have passed their wisdom down from generation to generation, but there is so little knowledge of it outside of the tribal elders. As an Australian born here , it fascinates me that there is a wealth of untapped knowledge that could help our people so much, especially as we are told on a daily basis via TV and radio that Antibiotics aren’t working as well any more, and that we as a culture need something new to help our sick.

Being born here we vibrate to this country and its plants, the Australian Bush Essences and the Shell Essences from the Reef attest to this, with their success in the emotional fields especially.

As an Australian that loves this country so much, we need to unlock its secrets that may give us better health and lifestyle. There needs to be talks with the tribal elders and more money spent in researching our native plants for medicinal purposes.

We will be changing our hours in the clinic.

Firstly to accomodate our patients who cannot make appointments during the week, and secondly to shorten the number of hours that I sit in a chair at one time. It is becoming more and more obvious that sitting for long periods in one session is just bad for our general health, and I am afraid I have been guilty of it for years.

From the 1st of July, we will be working every Saturday:

8:00 am to 11:30
11:30 am to 12:30pm lunch break
12:30 pm to 3 pm

Being healthy is the greatest wealth of all,
