Our furry animal companions have very similar bodies to ours, and many of the same conditions affect their bones, muscles, and ligaments. Both humans and animals can benefit from osteopathic treatment. Our hands-on, drug-free, and non-invasive approach can help to treat the musculoskeletal system with the aim of balancing all the systems of the body.

Delaying cow's-milk formula for just three days could reduce allergies | BabyCenter

Breast feeding is best, but if supplementation is necessary for the baby's health then it may be advisable to use a non-cow's-milk based formula, especially if there is a family history of allergy. New research has found that supplementation of breastfeeding with cow's milk-based baby formula increases the risk of the baby developing cow's-milk allergy. Suitable alternatives include amino-acid-based (elemental) hypo-allergenic infant formula.

babycenter.com If you can't breastfeed or you choose to formula-feed, this simple precaution could possibly influence your baby's food sensitivities. Find out more.

We are excited by this promising study and wanted to let our patients know if you are interested in trying the product used in this study please talk with Rebecca to see if it is suitable for your child.

Great news for parents with kids suffering from ADHD. A promising NZ pilot study reports vitamins and minerals help children with ADHD by modifying their microbiome in a healthy way and they report reduced symptoms of aggression, improved attention and mood. We are looking forward to larger studies.

Health Within Osteopathy - As-the-twig-is-bent

As the twig is bent, so grows the tree...
Vikasini discusses how our bodies are marked by our past, and how osteopathy can help.

During most people’s initial appointment we discover that there are several issues that need addressing with osteopathy beyond the particular injury, pain or limitation that has brought them to the clinic. Our bodies retain much of our history, and forgotten falls, impacts or illnesses commonly resurface in our patients’ memories as the treatment starts to release tissues that have been affected by life events in the past....

Vikasini qualified in London in 1992. She has been working in Aotearoa NZ since 1994, joining Health Within Osteopathy in 2002. Vikasini chose to specialise in ‘cranial’ osteopathy while still a student because of its ability to bring about deep therapeutic changes to any condition; be it a sprained ankle, birth strains in mother or baby, post-surgical problems or the after-effects of a stroke, not to mention the all too common low back and neck problems.
Vikasini has attended many post-graduate courses over the years in Europe, Australia and here, furthering her skills, and particularly enjoying and growing from the direct experience of Dr. James Jealous’ Biodynamic approach. Vikasini is a practising Buddhist and happily finds that osteopathy and Buddhist teachings are perfectly aligned and complementary! She enjoys treating all age groups and all conditions, and feels fortunate to work in a profession where the inherent intelligence of the patient's body so precisely determines the unfolding of the therapeutic process.

Congratulations to Rebecca who was awarded her PhD in Paediatrics from the University of Auckland today!

Beautiful spring flowers to go with a beautiful spring day. We are seeing patients currently with allergy related symptoms. Osteopathic treatment can work wonders on sinus pain/pressure, congestion and inflammation by unblocking the nasal passages and improving lymphatic drainage. #health #wellness #allergytreatment #spring

Concussions may seem benign on the surface, but they can have lasting effects. They are not just a hazard for elite sports people but for children too. "It felt like my brain hit the side of my head" is a common description. Headaches, neck pain, dizziness, anxiety, and fatigue are all common symptoms. As osteopaths we take any form of brain injury seriously, and it's our job to make sure the brain is happily floating within the cranium in its protective fluid. Read more about concussions and a case history from Kate http://www.healthwithin.co.nz/concussion

Kate graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in London in 1998. Emigrating to NZ in 2000, Kate has pursued post-graduate study in cranial osteopathy including all 9 phases in the biodynamic approach, leading to a special interest in treating fertility, pregnancy, babies and children. Kate lives in Piha with her husband and two children aged 7 and 11, and enjoys surfing, mountain biking, yoga and being out in nature.

New antibiotic found in human nose

A new antibiotic to fight superbugs was found in our nose! Some people have a friendly bacteria in their nose that produces this antibiotic. This finding supports the osteopathic philosophy that "the body has its own medicine cabinet." A paradigm shift in health is happening, which opens the door to more research examining the best way to support our own immune systems, including the helpful bacteria that inhabit us.
