Brownes Dairy ‘smuggling’ dairy goodness
A new approach to chronic pain
A dairy producer, Brownes Dairy has launched their new ‘A Hint Of …’ flavoured milk range, which has all the natural goodness of fresh WA milk with no added sugar and no artificial additive nasties.
“It’s a perfect win-win situation,” said Brownes Dairy Marketing Manager and mum of two Ivana Pereza. “My kids think they are having a yummy dairy treat but I know they are getting a healthy, natural milk drink that’s packed full of calcium”.
The new range is set to transform the flavoured milk category by introducing a first of its kind to WA families – a range of yummy, naturally flavoured milks with no nasties. That means absolutely no added sugars, no preservatives, colours, additives or artificial sweeteners. Just a hint of natural chocolate, strawberry, banana or vanilla and fresh WA milk.
These healthy and delicious natural milks have become a big hit in the Pereza household, and one that doesn’t take a toll on their health. “If my girls are going to have something that is supper yummy and fun, it usually means that it’s not that good for them,’ said Ivana. “Now we don’t have to compromise anymore. They can enjoy Brownes Dairy ‘A Hint Of…’ everyday – at breakfast with their cereal, after school and as a snack and before bedtime. It’s delicious, fun and healthy.”
As we all know, milk is a great source of calcium for strong, healthy, growing bones. But, as children get older, it can be a challenge to make sure they are getting their daily calcium needs met.
hronic pain affects between 20% to 30% of Australians, but less than 10% of people have access to effective treatment, costing the economy an estimated $35 billion each year. Whilst 70% of chronic pain is the result of injury, arthritis and musculo-skeletal problems, about 30% has no obvious cause, leaving many people in the dark about what to do. However, advances in scientific research over the past decade have led experts to understand that in many cases chronic pain is caused by unhelpful changes in the brain, known as ‘maladaptive plasticity’. In other words, in some cases of chronic pain, the pain is actually coming from the brain. This new understanding of chronic pain has resulted in innovative brain-based treatments that, in many cases, can dramatically reduce long-standing pain in just a few weeks.
Brownes Dairy ‘A Hint Of…’ flavoured milk range comes in four yummy natural flavours – Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla and Banana – and is available in 400ml and 1.3ml bottles. Available in Coles, Woolworths and local IGAs.
At The Perth Brain Centre they use special scans called QEEG to help pinpoint the problem areas in the brain and use this information to help direct

effective treatment. They use the latest brain-based therapies, some of which are featured in Dr. Norman Doidge’s internationally best selling book The Brain’s Way of Healing, the sequel to his equally popular book The Brain That Changes Itself. Treatment programs, directed to re-wire the brain, usually take place intensively over a few weeks. It is important that patients are motivated and prepared to set aside a little time out of their day to help get the best results. Brain-based treatments are becoming increasingly accepted as effective therapies by ‘main-stream’ medicine. In fact, The Perth Brain Centre was recently invited to speak at The Annual Rural Health West Conference, attended by several hundred GPs, to present on brain-based therapies for chronic pain. For further information on how brain-based therapies can help you or someone you know with chronic pain, please contact The Perth Brain Centre on 08 6500 3277 or visit perthbraincentre.com.au
Re-train The Perth Brain Centre, established in 2007, uses the latest neuroplastic therapies to “strengthen” and “re-train the brain”. An experienced and caring team of health care professionals provides leading edge brain-based treatments suitable for both children and adults for a range of conditions.
Neuroplastic therapies are appealing as they are non-invasive and drug-free. These innovative and evidence-based treatments work by “strengthening” and “re-training” the brain with detailed assessments used to develop individual training programmes.

How tutoring makes a difference?
reat tutoring goes beyond simply addressing a student’s academics.
xcited children and adults around Australia are having fun learning new skills together with Toptots programs.
The Study Buddy Tutoring Method starts from addressing a child’s underlying attitudes about schooling and education, followed by close mentoring which builds confidence. After that, knowledge gaps are comprehensively addressed through a unique and thorough teaching approach.
Toptots are one of the most respected educational guides to all early childhood starter programs. They’re like an education advisor for you and your child, and their fun learning programs have inspired hundreds of parents, adults, school students, babies and toddlers around the country.
By sending your child to Study Buddy Tutoring, over the years, they will adopt an advanced mentality about what lies ahead at every turn. Whether it’s adjusting into high school, dealing with bullies and distractions, through to, how to get through ATAR and reaching their potential, they’ve provided countless students with practical advice and friendship which these students are grateful for.
Learn how you can grow with your child on the road to educating them for life. You will discover how you can stay ahead of their learning needs just by using a few awareness strategies, such as ‘adjacent home schooling’. Many studies have found that adjacent home-schooled students on average outperform their public school counterparts on standardised tests. Toptots programs are also suitable if you are a home-schooling parent and want to learn more about educating your child.
visit www.toptots.net.au, find them on Facebook or call 0412 481 708.

babies like to position their head on a preferred side. They also like to look towards something fascinating in the room, like a mobile or picture on the wall. If your baby shows a preferred side, you can reposition their head after falling asleep. You can also change the direction your baby has to look by putting them to sleep at different ends of the cot or by spinning the bassinet around.
We'd like to introduce Filomena. She's our friend, a real person with real problems, and a mother to 5 fantastic children ranging in ages from 3 to 18.
Filomena is here to offer practical parenting tips for your baby or toddler.
Please spread the word by using #askfilomena and #kidsinperth.
During waking hours in the first three to four months, babies spend a lot of time on their backs. Keep the head moving in different directions by changing the position of exciting toys to look at. Move toys that are dangling from the pram and the car seat from right to left, left to right. Tummy time is always a winner and side play can help too. And soon your baby will learn to roll over, which will mean less time spent on their backs. Change feeding positions so your baby's head is not always resting in the same spot each feed. If you are using a carry car seat, limit the amount of time your bub has to be in there, like play time and sleep time.
How can I prevent my newborn from developing flathead? Jennifer - Tuart Hill
Preventing flathead starts from the day your baby is born – by alternating the direction your baby's head is facing each sleep. After the first few weeks, babies start to turn their heads by themselves.
If you have a question for Filomena, please send it along to firstname.lastname@example.org
Seeing as they spend most of their time sleeping at this stage, some
