New Clients Needed….Katherine??!!

As you all probably know….I’ve been travelling to Katherine once a month for well over 18mths now. I started doing this as I had several locals had tried my certified organic herbal teas at Malak Marketplace & asked if I could come to town to support their health.

I truly love going down there each month to assist this beautiful community….but it needs to be sustainable for me to continue. Yes…I’ve helped many people, hence why they no longer need my help!! From stress, gut concerns, persistent colds/flu’s, hormone balancing, pain relief, children’s health & emotional support. This is an amazing feeling & this is why I do what I do…to see positive results after people taking control of the lives & health again. I definitely plan to be finishing out the year in Katherine…..but will need to see how things go in the New Year.

So if you know anyone who is open to natural therapies in Katherine & who would benefit from herbal & nutritional support or Flower Essences for their health & wellbeing, please pass on my details.

Thank You for Your Support…..Love & Light, Kristy x

DHA & Omegas During & Beyond Pregnancy

There’s been some discussion around the importance of omegas & particularly DHA in our diets….especially for pregnant women.

In my clinic, prenatal health & nutrition is important to ensure both mum & bub receive the optimum amount of nutrients to allow the best possible outcome for their health. We as Australian’s, are often deficient in Omega 3  & our bodies can’t produce it. How often do you eat 2-3 serves of oily fish, or lots of eggs or ‘micro algae’ to get your DHA???

DHA is needed to aid brain development, nervous system & even their retina’s in the eyes – particularly in the last trimester of pregnancy. Pregnancy can strip your body of nutrients quickly – bub will get them before you. Once bub is born….the growth spurts continue – so additional DHA is needed to pass onto bub via breast milk, & a ‘top up’ is a great way to do this.

A lack of DHA has also been linked to a higher incidence of post natal depression….even more fascinating is those babies who received DHA supplementation had a higher IQ than those given placebo.

Not all Fish Oils are created equal.

A ‘practitioner only’ brand is from a reliable & ‘clean source’….not contaminated with heavy metals. If you’d like support during your pregnancy or for preconception care….give me a call or book online today.
