What can we do for our Children?:With the Green Apple Wellness Centre!

Thousands of Australian children are going to be struggling for the rest of their lives.


Because in the last 30 years there has been an accumulation of habits created by the advent of the fast food industry and the growth of technology (computers, television, electronic games) combined with a decrease in physical activity. The freedom to do incidental physical activity like walking to school or going to the shops on an errand, and to do "fun" physical activity like disappearing for hours roaming, climbing and generally using the body in a hundred different challenging ways has been restricted.

Thousands of children will grow into obese and physically inactive adults with thousands of medical problems and generally struggling.

Obesity levels in the USA are frightening and Australia is not far behind, in fact we are slowly catching up. The National Obesity Taskforce has been established in Australia to identify the causes and create strategic plans to attack the root of this monster.

The question is: What is being done on the coalface to weaken the effects of all this inactivity and poor food choices?

What role can the fitness industry play is slaying this monster?

Any children's activity has to be fun if it is to be successful. There is a huge need for Fitness Centres to become a "club" for families. The third port of call behind home, "Their Club" where they want to go, not only for exercise, but for fun and to wind down from school/work stresses

If we can achieve this, children will start to exercise more. More exercise equals more chance of a healthy body and hopefully better food choices.

How do we do it? That's the million dollar question.

The Green Apple Wellness Centre, Bald Hills, Brisbane, Qld has developed a forever active programme for children.

Life,Work and Balance:With Rex Urwin of Mind Matters!

Life, Work and Balance? By Rex Urwin The intention of this article is to arouse in your awareness the question regarding how you are designing your life or not?

Research has evidenced that those who step into the responsibility of creating their lives consciously tend toward more effective lifestyles and type of work choices. They have better incomes, career satisfaction, health, supportive relationships and higher self regard.

This is no coincidence as they tend to realize that leaving their life to random outcomes leaves to much to chance and that risk is not worth taking.

The difference here is that these people understand that they dictate the results in their lives rather than outside influences.

Career paths are an ever expanding field of opportunity as we as a race open up new technologies and understanding of what it is that will provide services and products to satisfy our expanding world of possibilities.

If we view the choices available for career creativity they are abundant. If we view opportunities for play and adventure and creativity available on the planet they are also abundant.

So what is the factor not being entered into the equation that without it is resulting in mediocre lives?

Well perhaps it is not understanding that we do influence our choices, and we CAN change the way we do things.

Each of us is the major influence on our life's outcomes daily, on the things we decide or not decide to do and we live in the creation of those choices.

There is incredible information at our finger tips now and information is not biased as to who uses it. What would I be doing when I am excited, thrilled, congruent, playful, prosperous and in integrity to my uniqueness?

So! Begin or not, (you choose) by exploring where you are getting the results you desire, and enhancing them, and where you are not getting your desired outcomes, and change them into what you really want to experience.

Ground Breaking News for Dry,Scaly Winter Skin:With 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:

Rewards and Praise: The Poisoned Carrot

We give our children ice-cream if they’re “good”, chocolate if they’re quiet, little gold stars if they eat their greens, maybe even money if they get good marks at school. We praise them with a “good boy!” or “good girl!” if they do something that pleases us. For the modern and discerning parent, the hitting-and-shaming method of “discipline” is passé. Punishment is out, and rewards are in. Why use the stick, when we can better teach a child by using a carrot? The New Age hype about praising and rewarding children for what we call “good” behavior has gained massive popularity. “Find something good your child has done, and praise them for it!” say the nouveau “how-to” books and seminars. Psychologists all over recommend the “star-chart” treatment to modify your child’s behavior. This trend is the offspring of a particular school of psychology - the “behaviorists” - whose thinking currently dominates much of mainstream psychological and educational theory. more
