Coeliac Disease and Gluten Intolerance seems to becoming more prevalent in our societies, and are ailments not uncommon to hear of these days. The Australian Coeliac Society states that, approximately 1 in 100 Australians have Coeliac Disease, with 75% of sufferers still undiagnosed. Chances are that the terminology Gluten Free, and Gluten Free food products will become more familiar to us all.
We have a new practitioner in our building next door to Jude Friesen. He is Doug Freeman, Doctor of Chiropractic, who has expanded his time in his Port Douglas rooms to now include a couple of days a week here in Cairns. Doug has been in Australia since 2004. His studies have included Sacro Occipital Technique, Medicine and chiropractic, Paediatrics, Sports Chiropractic, Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique, and Carrick's Functional Neurology Program.
Some of you may not know yet that there is a naturopath/homeopath working from the shop right next door. Jude Friesen is a delightful person who has many years of experience. We are working together with her as a place to pick up remedies and some prescriptions. If you need a consultation, please phone Jude on 0402 857 799 to make an appointment.
Sprouting Seeds, Grains and Pulses
Sprouts can be divided into those grown as small green plants, (mainly eaten raw although some have to be juiced) and those grown briefly just to improve the nutritional qualities of the seed, (mainly grains and beans).
