Health & Harmony College:A Brilliant Career in Natural Therapies!

A brilliant career in natural therapies awaits you Today, the rise and rise of complementary health training and practice has been instrumental in shifting the belief that it is the "alternative path" to it providing rewarding vocational outcomes that enable the health carer to establish a respected and sought after professional profile in their local community.

A brilliant career begins with quality training. Health and Harmony Colleges has had nine successful years as providers of quality distance education with hundreds of students currently enrolled across Australia and abroad. Enrollments are open for all courses daily for students who can take a self-paced approach to their studies with their own professional tutor assigned them for optional daily contact and easy study and payment options that fit in with other lifestyle commitments.

Health and Harmony College graduates attest to the effectiveness of their studies as they start their own clinics or begin work in rewarding positions with feedback such as, "...I write in gratitude for the 6 years I have been a student at your college. Being a distant learning student I found the course structure, study material and information very indepth yet easily followed. I am a now a professional aromatherapist managing my own business in Bundaberg. I have been awarded four Small Business Awards, and I also enjoy teaching at the local TAFE college..." Jennifer, Bundaberg.

Some candidates have completed their training within months and are still succeeding in their own businesses today.

With over 130 courses to choose from, natural therapy apprentices can select a pathway in the major modalities of aromatherapy, remedial massage, homeopathy, naturopathy, nutrition, western herbalism, TCM, ayurveda, sports therapies, counselling skills and also range of beauty and business courses. Psychic studies for personal development are popular with our student body, too, with many graduates going on to make a living from spiritual healing.

Features of the Health and Harmony College's student policy include: your own starting/completion dates, easy and affordable payment plans, home study and open book tests done at home, and daily tutorial support.

Ground Breaking News for Dry Scaly Winter Skin: Checkout Vegesorb!

ENVIRONMENTAL factors play havoc on ALL skin types and never more so than during our cold and windy winters. Then, air-conditioning, heaters, electric blankets and a slowing down daily of our water intake compound the problem and we are left with dry, parched and dehydrated skin susceptible to infection and early ageing.

Clever marketing has convinced us that if a product smells and feels good when applied then it must be doing some long term good for our body's protective and largest organ. But skin is a pathway to our internal being and we need to ask ourselves, "WOULD I EAT PETRO-CHEMICALS or would I feel safe consuming this skincare?" The answer for most of us would be, "No."

It is not difficult for skincare manufacturers to disguise an inferior product by the addition of silicones (skin smoothing agents) or emollients (skin softeners) and put a sophisticated price and label on the product. Mineral or paraffin oils are added to creams and sold for cheap prices as moisturisers however these mineral additives are foreign to the skin and hence form a "barrier" on the surface.

BUT NOW there is a skincare product made from VEGETABLE oils that are compatible with ALL skin types, is highly absorbable and highly affordable.

Highly effective (and environmentally responsible), VEGESORB, is readily absorbed into the skin and moisturises from inside out. This restores balance to ALL skins so that naturally occurring lipids provide the ongoing nutrients and lubrication for a glowing and healthy complexion.

Forget "hypoallergenic" in the context of sensitive skin alone and retrain your concept of skincare towards a logical solution of using bio-chemically available vegetable oils for skin and mineral oils for inanimate objects such as motor cars. With only a subtle difference in price, this decision will not be difficult to make.

Take the case of Jenny Williams of Narwee, NSW who uses Vegesorb on her one year old son, Daniel, who is an eczema sufferer (…"extremely sore, rough and red skin…"). "I have now found a skin moisturiser, (after trialling all main brands on the market), to help with his skin condition. Thank you, VEGESORB," his mother writes.

Speaking from a recently conducted AGED CARE SYMPOSIUM in Brisbane, Jan Burguez, Aromatherapist, had this to say about VEGESORB. "This is a revolutionary product, an unsung hero that has everything any body needs in a skincare product. Sensitive, dry, damaged, and injured skin can only benefit from this breakthrough product. Bed sores and decubitis ulcers can be assisted with this product with the addition of prescribed essential oils. My clients in the aged care sector especially have made their own decisions to switch brands and they're sticking with VEGESORB. If people try it, they will buy it This has got what it takes to do the job at hand."

The Eczema Association of Australia Inc also writes, "…we have no hesitation in acknowledging their (VEGESORB AUST. P/L) commitment to the production of quality products."

For daily use as a preventative against environmental factors or for treatment of dry and scaly skin conditions, VEGESORB is Australia's best value moisturiser. Wholly Australian owned and manufactured VEGESORB is available at selected pharmacies, health food stores and direct by contacting Managing Director, Neale Scott on (07) 3885 2882, or visiting the website: Email for a FACT SHEET to:

A word on Coconut oil by Mary Enig

Coconut oil has a unique role in the diet as an important physiologically functional food. The health and nutritional benefits that can be derived from consuming coconut oil have been recognized in many parts of the world for centuries. Although the advantage of regular consumption of coconut oil has been under-appreciated by the consumer and producer alike for the recent two or three decades, its unique benefits should be compelling for the health minded consumer of today. A review of the diet/heart disease literature relevant to coconut oil clearly indicates that coconut oil is at worst neutral with respect to atherogenicity of fats and oils and, in fact, is likely to be a beneficial oil for prevention and treatment of some heart disease. Additionally, coconut oil provides a source of antimicrobial lipid for individuals with compromised immune systems and is a nonpromoting fat with respect to chemical carcinogenesis.

Short and Sweet: Pop Corn With a Twist!

Pop corn By Joanne Hay :

Here’s a quick treat for the hungry hoards. Fast food that isn’t non-food.

Melt 1 tablespoon coconut oil in large pot over high heat, add 1 cup organic popcorn and cover. Once popcorn starts to pop, shake pan over flame until all the kernels have popped. Melt 1 stick of organic butter in small pan, crush 2 cloves garlic into the butter, add 1?4 cup naturally fermented soy sauce and 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Pour evenly over popcorn. Then sprinkle 1/2 cup of grated “stinky” cheese (asiago, romano, or parmesan) and Celtic sea salt (to taste) on popcorn. Serve with chunks of salami or sausage from the farm.

Laughter is the best medicine!

A man told his doctor that he wasn't able to do all the things around the house that he used to do. When the examination was complete, he said, "Now, Doc, I can take it. Tell me in plain English what is wrong with me." "Well, in plain English," the doctor replied, "you're just lazy." "Okay," said the man. "Now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife."

Quote of the month!

"There are two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness"
