FORUM: HEALTHY SOIL, HEALTHY PEOPLE

She is lovely! She is great! It won’t take long for her to become a gardening celebrity!

Anyone that met Leonie  Shanahan feels she has a passion for health, especially for children. 11 years ago Leonie decided to change  the eating habits of children with positive actions by setting up Edible School Garden Programs in Schools where children have the hands on experience – learning about all aspects of permaculture and organic gardening.

It all starts in the soil.  Our soils have to be full of minerals and nutrients so that our plants are taking these up and we are eating the healthiest  food  possible. Healthy soils, healthy plants, healthy you.

Leonie has now set up 20 schools, held permakids workshops, spoken at conferences and has taught and changed the eating habits of 1000’s of students, and parents too!!!

In 2010 in response to Leonie experience and realising that so many people had no garden knowledge, Leonie wrote a book that simplifies organic gardening, easy to read and full of photographs to compliment the instructions, Eat Your Garden, organic gardening for home and schools.

In 2010 Eco Films began filming Leonie program which is now available to DVD.

Both her book and DVD are relevant to schools and home gardens.

MANAGING ARTHRITIS with TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

with Dolina Somerville
(BHSc) Licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner

Facts:

  • Worldwide, one in three people suffer from the pain of arthritis.
  • Western Medicine treatments are generally limited to drugs or surgery.
  • Many people feel that they are victims of their condition.
  • Comments such as “I have bone-on-bone and nothing can be done except surgery” are commonplace.

However, there is an alternative approach to the treatment of arthritis, which may involve between one and five of the arms of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

  • Acupuncture or self-acupressure.
  • Chinese Herbal Medicine
  • Tui Na (Traditional Chinese Medicine Remedial Massage)
  • Chinese Dietary Therapy
  • Chinese Exercise Therapy (Qi Gong, Tai Chi etc.)

Dolina’s decision to study Chinese Medicine occurred after successful treatments for her own chronic pain.

After suffering several accidents, she developed painful arthritis in the neck, hip and knee. In severe pain, taking strong painkillers and contemplating surgery she turned to acupuncture for relief. The rest is history.

Today, she has never had the surgeries and remains pain and drug free.

A large part of her focus these days is to promote the health benefits of Chinese Medicine.

Please join this talk to hear how TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) can help with the pain of Arthritis.

Dolina is a Nationally Registered TCM practitioner. She is qualified in Acupuncture, Chinese Remedial Massage and Cosmetic Acupuncture. Part of her training was carried out at the Guangxi Traditional Chinese Medical University in PR China.

In addition to her practice in Maleny, Dolina also works at an aged Care Facility in Brisbane.

Her voluntary work includes the Woodford Folk Festival and a Crisis Centre in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
