Your Child’s Health Is In Your Hands!

“Tomorrow’s world is already taking shape in the body and spirit of our children.”
– Kofi Annan

This quote from the seventh United Nations Secretary General (from January 1997 to December 2006) and 2001 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Kofi Annan, reminds us of the critical importance of attending to the needs of children, not only for their own sakes in the here and now (as “beings”), but also as the “becomings” of the future.

While children’s health and development is dependent on a myriad of factors that we mention below, their eating behaviours are fundamental to their health. If we as parents, want to ensure that we have not only healthy kids but smart kids as well, we must pay attention to what is affecting them.

Did you know that the development and long-term health of children, physically, mentally and emotionally, is linked to their nutritional habits from their early life onward?

Parents obviously have a high degree of control over the environments and experiences of their children, partly because children model themselves on their parents’ eating behaviours, lifestyles, eating-related attitudes and habits, and their happiness or dissatisfactions regarding body image. Eating behaviours are thus likely to be established early in life and may be maintained into adulthood with little thought given to their long-term effects.

So what can parents do to ensure their child gets the best start in life?

What’s Killing Our Children?

In June 2006, there were 4 million children aged under 15 years in Australia, representing one-fifth (19%) of the total population (ABS 2006a). In 2004-05, 41% of children aged under 15 years had a long-term health condition compared with 44% in 2001 (ABS 2006 & ABS 2002). That’s a 3% decrease in just three years – things are on the improve. Or are they?

In fact issues like SIDS reduced dramatically, but others were still on the increase. The Health & Welfare Institute and other organisations looked at the following emerging health concerns in Australian children:

  • Asthma – more on asthma here
  • Type 1 diabetes – more on type 2 diabetes here
  • Cancer – more on children’s cancer here
  • Congenital heart defects – more on heart health here
  • Digestive disturbances in children – more on that here
  • And many others including, mental health issues, disability, and so on. This list is really endless.

So lets look into what this means. As a parent myself, I have seen a struggling health system failing us in providing adequate health improvement for our children, and knowing what I knew that could make a difference, I determined to do what I could about it. But what are parents actually dealing with today? Read More

Minerals – Essential Nutrients for Every Living Cell

5 Key Minerals, 7 Trace Elements, What about the 49 others?

Many professional in the medical field believe that all you need is a balanced diet and perhaps a multi-vitamin. Even in the field of natural therapies it’s often said that you only need 12 – 20 minerals for good health. In our experience, this is far from the truth. Without a broad range of over 90 plus nutrients your body can become sickened and begin to suffer from a myriad of symptoms and syndromes.

Minerals are essential nutrients for every living cell in the human body, and every other living thing. Defined in the study of human nutrition as all the inorganic elements or molecules required for life, minerals assist in body functions such as producing energy, growing, and healing. They are required for fluid balance, blood and bone development, maintaining a healthy nervous system, activate digestive processes and regulating muscles, including heart muscles.

They are essential ingredients, necessary for every metabolic and hormonal activity of the body, and when you think about it – isn’t that just about everything that keeps us alive?

When you take our recommended naturally derived, organic and plant-based source, you’ll see an instant improvement in mental acuity, clarity of thinking as well as short-term and long term memory improvement. Not only that, you’ll get better rest whilst sleeping and feel more alert over the whole day.

When your body runs out of minerals, you feel exhausted, cranky, you age faster and you fall asleep in front of the TV and think it’s ‘normal’! Read More
