Live beneficial bacteria: the infamous Probiotic!

QUESTION: What is another word for a live beneficial bacteria that can help balance the good and bad bacteria found in our digestive system?


QUESTION:Where can we find a probiotic product?

ANSWER: In you local supermarket, convenience store or even milk bar. This product is called Yakult.

The probiotic in Yakult is known as Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain A probiotic must contain a high level beneficial bacteria and needs to survive the stomach and bile acids to reach the intestines alive. The role of a probiotic is to

  • Help control the number of potentially harmful bacteria that naturally exist in the digestive system
  • Replenish and balance the levels of beneficial bacteria
  • Assist with digestion of food and absorption of nutrients
  • Help manufacture vitamins
  • Enhance your immune system

The specially cultivated Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain, found only in Yakult, arrives ALIVE in the intestines.

Not all probiotic products can guarantee this vital factor. Furthermore, Yakult is made in Australia. For more information on bacteria and how to maintain a healthy level please check out : or call the Yakult on their free number 1800 640 023.

The ancient art of healing: Dit Da medicine!

Dit Da Medicine The Ancient Art of Healing This ancient form of physical therapy was cultivated within the walls of the martial temples of China. Dating back more than 4,000 years- the ability of the Art to heal continues to be recognised and trusted by the Chinese people.

Martial practicing Monks were taught Healing Arts in the senior levels of training. The Martial Art body wields more controlled power, making adjustments to the skeleton easier and far safer. Prognosis through feel and touch is more sensitive following prolonged dedication to Martial training due to the power within the hands and fingers and in many cases a personal experience of the injury itself. This one quality brings great sensitivity and knowledge towards the patient and their new ailment.

Paul Brennan has been in practice since 1989 and specialises in "DIT DA". This practice is ideal for sports injuries, bone breaks and back pain with a focus on Bone-Setting. Paul became a Martial Teacher from many years of study in Hong Kong where he received his certifications from grand masters in this ancient style.

Paul is also the (Sifu) Instructor of the Chow Family Kung Fu school in Brisbane and runs classes Monday and Wednesday on a weekly basis. For any details regarding Chinese Sports Medicine or the Chow Family Kung Fu school, Paul can reached by or by phone 07 3366 8977 or click here

Wheat Grass does amazing things

Wheatgrass juice is one of nature's true super foods; in fact it is a complete food capable of sustaining human life in the absence of other nourishment for long periods. We certainly wouldn't recommend such a single-track approach to nutrition, but this amazing juice contains almost everything necessary to keep us going. Wheatgrass Juice is extracted from the young sprouts of wheat berries or grains. It has optimal nutritional value if juiced when the shoot of the plant is about to make its first stem division (usually at 7-10 inches growth).

  • Contains very high concentrations of vitamins, minerals and live enzymes
  • Wheatgrass is easy to grow
  • Suitable for those on a gluten-free diet
  • Excellent provider of proteins required for cell regeneration and renowned for it's healing properties Just 2 ounces of juice provides the same nourishment as up to 4 pounds of fresh, green vegetables
  • Helps to maintain healthy digestion, purify and build the blood, and is an excellent all round detoxifier
  • Wonderfully energizing and very useful for helping in times of increased stress or illness.

Signs You Drink Too Much Coffee

You answer the door before people knock.

You ski uphill

You grind your coffee beans in your mouth

You haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse

You lick your coffeepot clean

You're the employee of the month at the local coffeehouse and you don't even work there

Your eyes stay open when you sneeze

You chew on other people's fingernails

Your T-shirt says, "Decaffeinated coffee is the devil's blend

You can type sixty words per minute ... with your feet

You can jump-start your car without cables

You don't need a hammer to pound nails

Your only source of nutrition comes from "Sweet & Low."

You've worn out the handle on your favorite mug

You walk twenty miles on your treadmill before you realize it's not plugged in

You forget to unwrap candy bars before eating them

Charles Manson thinks you need to calm down

You've built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers

People get dizzy just watching you


Quote of the month!

To know the pains of power, we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures, we must go to those who are seeking it.
