IS THIS THE DEATH OF NATURAL THERAPY REBATES?

From 2019, the government plans to remove all natural therapies (including but not exclusive to Herbal medicine, Bowen therapy, Pilates, Yoga, Naturopathy), from health fund cover.

MULTIVITAMINS - DO WE REALLY NEED TO TAKE THEM?

Well, yes and no... so much depends on the individual - diet, age, existing illnesses, medication use, pregnancy, smoking, stress levels etc.

Many people aren't eating nutrient dense diets, so a multi can fill nutritional gaps, though it is not a substitute for good food.
