Melbourne researchers believe they have made a breakthrough with ADHD

Researchers at Melbourne’s Swinburne University believe they have found a natural treatment which could help children suffering from ADHD.

In the clean, clear waters of New Zealand lies the green-lipped mussel, which contains anti-inflammatory and joint-protecting properties through the high amount of Omega-3 fatty acids found in them.

For some time, Melbourne researchers believed a supplement made from the mussels, marketed in Australia as Lyprinol, could also help children suffering from ADHD.

Swinburne University lead researcher Professor Con Stough said the team found a 34 percent improvement in bad behaviour at home, a 13 percent improvement in attention and a 10 percent improvement in hyperactivity.

“We randomised 144 children with hyperactivity or inattention, and these are behaviours that would be causing them a lot of trouble in school… into two groups. One, which they took Lyprinol for 14 weeks, or …

Pregnancy: We’ve all heard about postnatal depression, but what about antenatal depression?

We all know and hear a lot about postnatal depression, but what about depression and anxiety during pregnancy?

Over the past two decades, most research on mothers’ mental health has focused on the time after childbirth. Only recently has attention turned to the issue of maternal mental health during pregnancy.

Our study involving 1500 first-time mothers suggests around one in ten mothers have clinically significant depressive symptoms in the first three months of pregnancy, and a similar proportion have severe anxiety symptoms.

Other studies measuring symptoms at later stages of pregnancy, or over a number of time points, indicate even higher proportions of women have clinically significant depressive and/or anxiety symptoms during pregnancy.

Women who have depressive symptoms during pregnancy are also much more likely to have anxiety or depression after childbirth. Although it’s important to point out not all …

I was always ‘healthy’, but wanted to see a Naturopath. Since seeing Lindsay, my migraines that for years I’d become accustomed to living with stopped completely! My energy and concentration have all increased and I’m feeling better than ever, truly healthy.

I started seeing Lindsay during menopause. I was having an awful time, hot flushes, insomnia and the worst mood swings. The changes she suggested were very easy to adhere to and I continue with them today. I have no more hot flushes, I’m sleeping better than I was before menopause, and I feel so much better in general my moods are stable and my energy levels are through the roof!

I have received treatment from Lindsay a number of times now and I am always amazed with the amount of knowledge and skill she possesses. I have other family members also using her services as I trust her 100% and know I can confidently refer them to her. I recommend seeing Lindsay she is by far the best naturopath I have ever dealt with.
