We’ve had a busy start to the year here at NBK with some new team members joining us and some exciting new developments:

OUR FIRST EVENT FOR 2012 – ‘WANT HEALTHIER CHILDREN?‘ with Don Chisholm & Kristen Morrison
Fact #1 – Today’s children face a world far different from the one we grew up in.
Fact #2 – More and more kids suffer from conditions that were rare a few decades ago.
Just how much connection is there between these two facts? Why would you take a young child to an osteopath, chiropractor or naturopath when there’s nothing ‘wrong’? Why is gut health so important even for our little kids?
Find out at our Melbourne event on March 25th with Don Chisholm, Author of ‘Have Yo Got The Guts To Be Really Healthy?’ and our founder Kristen Morrison.. This is not a special needs event, natural therapies and approaches are as much about prevention as treatment. Tickets just $15… click here for more details

“There is an enormous amount of interest in organic food from parents of babies and young children… and rightly so. US studies found that in blood samples of children aged two to four, concentrations of pesticides were six times higher in children eating conventionally farmed fruits and vegetables compared with those eating organic food…
Exposure to agricultural pesticides has been linked to conditions such as hyperactivity, learning disabilities and behavioural disorders in children…” click here to read more.
