Do you want to get better value from your health fund? At this time of the year, many of our clients have used up their limit for natural therapies, and are not sure which is the best health fund for them.
In June this year, Choice did a Health Insurance Comparisons Review for singles, couples and families. We have created simplified tables of the results, based purely on natural therapies (acupuncture, massage, naturopathy) cover for each of these groups.
Because of this, these tables should be used as a guide only.
What is clear from the tables is that smaller health funds often provide better value than larger ones. We suggest that you
When you ring the funds, let them know that you are shopping around, and ask them if they can waive the extras waiting period for you.
A few phone calls could save you a lot of money in the long term!

We recently had a client who was trying hard to improve her health, so she was making and drinking plenty of fresh vegetable and fruit juices.

However, it is often the case that anything that can have a powerful good effect on the body, if used incorrectly, can have a negative effect. Excessive use of kale, such as juicing it every day, could cause problems such as
In a word, no! It has many wonderful nutritional benefits. But just because something is excellent in moderate amounts, doesn't always mean it is even better for everyone in higher doses.
There are two ways to avoid nutrition imbalances. One way is to have everything in moderation. Done correctly, juices can be fantastic, however keep in mind that they are highly concentrated, so don't have them all the time, and have a variety of ingredients. An even better approach is to have a proper assessment by a good Brisbane naturopath, who can determine which foods are best for you and which ones you should avoid.
