In February I was awarded the distinction of a Fellow Member of the Homeobotanical Institute, qualifying as a Homeobotanical Practitioner (Herbal). This means I will be able to help you with problems other than bodywork, shiatsu, deep tissue. For example, hot flushes, prostrate problems, de-tox, migraines are just a few areas where Homeobotanicals are useful. Click here for my other Qualifications.
50% of Aussies with Arthritis and Back Pain
One in two Australians have musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis and backache, an international survey has shown, prompting calls for greater effort to counter the disease. The figures are a ''staggering'' indication of the prevalence of conditions ranging from aches and pains to life-threatening types of arthritis, says rheumatologist Lyn March. Professor March says the survey shows back pain to be the ''stand-out condition'' and Australia's leading cause of disability triggering the greatest physical and psychological impact of all health conditions. Osteoarthritis, low back and neck pain are other common conditions, affecting more than five million Australians. Knee osteoarthritis has been increasing at the greatest rate over the past decade, reflecting the increase in overweight and obese people and the incidence of sport injuries.
