The Benefits of Herbal Medicine If you are fed up with waiting for a Doctor’s appointment or find that your treatment does not result in long term health improvements then you should consider using herbal medicine. Herbal medicines are as old as the hills but the resurgence in their use is also supported by recent scientific evidence. The advantages of herbal medicine are that they are natural compounds from plants with few side effects, and provide safe, gentle and effective healthcare. All family members can benefit from herbal treatment. But it is particularly beneficial for conditions commonly experienced by children and teenagers where orthodox drugs are either undesirable or only a temporary solution. These conditions include

childhood eczema, painful periods, acne, allergies, stress, anxiety, insomnia and digestive disorders. Using herbal medicine for mild conditions such as respiratory and urinary infections could also reduce demand for their treatment by GPs. And curbing the use of antibiotics could help combat future antibiotic resistance. Herbal medicines can be purchased over the counter but much greater benefit is achieved by consulting a qualified Medical Herbalist. This involves an hour long consultation where all aspects of the condition can be explored. A Medical Herbalist treats the body as a whole in both its physical and emotional aspects. GPs tend to treat the symptoms but a Medical

Herbalist aims to address the symptoms and the underlying causes of a condition. This helps correct imbalances and maximises the body’s own long term healing capacities. Medical Herbalists have access to a wide range of good quality herbal medicines and in optimal doses. They use liquid, powder or infusions which combine several different herbs in one preparation. A unique combination and dose of herbs is tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs. I have, for example, successfully treated a 12 year old girl with itchy eczema on her hands and elbows. The herbal treatment, which was taken internally and as a cream, reduced itching, decreased redness and prevented drying of the skin. The cause of the flare ups was also identified. Herbal medicines provide a real alternative method of treatment

New to Biggin Hill on Mondays from the 3rd November!

Microsport is a unique, structured program of physical activities which introduces children to a variety of ball sports including tennis, soccer, hockey, cricket, basketball and rugby. Not only this, it teaches them the basic skills for all sporting activities by developing ball skills, spatial awareness, general coordination, balance, agility and so forth. We aim to make all our sessions educational, challenging, but most importantly fun. We are often amazed at what such young children can achieve. The classes are varied – each session is different and entertaining and we use special mini-equipment, ideal for little hands. As well as learning sport skills early, children benefit in confidence and self esteem as their ability improves. They also learn the basics of teamwork – learning to share and to take turns whilst playing our team games. They learn the language of sport – aiming, shooting and goals. So come and join the fun at Biggin Hill. Follow us on Twitter: @MicroSpBromley & @MicroSp7oaks Like us on Facebook: Microsport Bromley & Microsport Sevenoaks Microsport celebrates its 23rd Anniversary in 2014!

Creativity in the Classroom by

Angela Drew, Headmistress, Bromley High School

BROMLEY HIGH SCHOOL FIRING GIRLS’ IMAGINATION SINCE 1883

Croydon High – a school as unique as your daughter At Croydon High, we believe we know best when it comes to girls’ education. After all, we’ve been encouraging young women to aim high and believe in themselves for 140 years.

I

To find out what we do here, why not come and visit us?

n order to be ready for a professional life, where knowledge must be constantly updated and expanded, pupils, like Theoretical Physicists, need to look to the future and to dream. So, whilst inspirational teachers will always make the acquisition of knowledge an exhilarating experience, the best education will also fulfil a mind-opening, eye-opening and imagination-opening function. At Bromley High School, excellence in GCSE and A level examination is our traditional expectation but now new technologies are also giving pupils an inspirational window onto a wider world. Freed from the shackles of the National Curriculum, girls take an exploratory approach to learning which nurtures imagination and develops empathy. Crucially, the cultivation of creative imagination fuels aspiration beyond the curriculum. Those who enjoy the privilege of an excellent education should always be properly ambitious: both to make the most of their talents and to change their world for the better. We hold Open Events in March, May and October and regular Taster Days throughout the year. For more information contact admissions@bro.gdst.net or Tel 020 8781 7000. www.bromleyhigh.gdst.net

We hold regular taster sessions and open doors events, so please call 020 8260 7543 (Seniors) or 020 8260 7508 (Juniors) to arrange to visit at a time to suit you. We look forward to meeting you.

Ok, so you have suddenly found that your children are now in education or no more on your hands and you have quite abit of time spare. You know you want to do something worthwhile and interesting but where to start. It has either been some time since you were in the world of work or you have never worked and are looking to venture into this daunting world. No matter what your situation, the whole world of work can be quite frightening and not knowing what employers want can also give added pressure to the mix. This is where seeing a careers adviser can help. Careers advisers are professional experts who can help you with an entire list of services that will all benefit you and make the transition back into or into work that much more easier and comfortable. We can help you with:

      

CV advice an how to produce a winning CV that an employer will want to read, give them the correct information about your skills, knowledge and experience as well as make you stand out from the crowd We can advise you on job search and how and where you should be looking and doing productive and safe job searching using social media which is all the rage now Interview preparation and practical’s so that you are more prepared and confident in your performance Assisting you on deciding what it is you want to do job and career wise as well as the steps you may need to take such as training and volunteering to achieve them We can do assessments to find out what your strengths and weaknesses are, sectors you may want to consider your career in as well as give you food for thought on jobs Some careers advisers, like me, teach employability workshops that give you a lot of information on a variety of topics in a quick short hit We can even advise you on courses, funding, sign post you to appropriate organisations that can support you as well as will support you right the way through to you achieving your goal. Seeing a professional careers adviser and attending workshops are all FREE and we can be found in community places like libraries, community centres etc

My name is Jennie James and I do FREE National Careers Service Sessions at Bromley College and Chislehurst Library which is open to the general public as long as you are 19 years or older. I also teach a variety of employability workshops that will empower, motivate and give you the knowledge you need to achieve your aims.

Baby Swimming Lessons A Gift for Life Accidental drowning is the third highest cause of death in young children in the U.K. That’s why teaching your baby or toddler to swim at an early age is one of the best gifts you can ever give to your child. Beckenham based TinyFins Baby & Toddler Swim School has brought Parent & Child swimming lessons to Orpington. Based in the super-warm Orpington Hospital hydrotherapy pool…babies and toddlers learn to float, kick, paddle and achieve underwater swims. They also learn vital water-safety skills. Owner, Glynis Johnson-Forde says ‘we keep our classes small and use songs and toys to make our lessons fun for both parent and child’. So our advice is don’t wait. Come and learn how to teach your baby to swim – the sooner the better!
