...and welcome to the Naturally Chiropractic August newsletter
Here's to the newborns!
There's nothing quite like the arrival of a brand new bundle – nine full months of waiting, planning until finally – the new addition brings joy and laughter. And sometimes, squeals and squawks and other little nuances to keep you up at night. While every mum knows when something is not quite right, it's sometimes hard to know exactly what's making your bundle of love unhappy.

That's where our training and love of Paediatric Chiropractic come in handy. Do you know anyone whose baby is struggling to feed? Not settling or relaxing? Struggling to pass wind or fill a nappy? If so, we may be able to help. Often a simple, gentle adjustment to their spine is enough to make a huge difference to them and to you too. If the reason they are not happy is because of a non-mechanical reason, Jo and Estelle will quickly refer you back for specialist consultation.

We'll be running special baby check clinics this month, so telephone for an appointment or you can book online.

Vanessa Waters is joining us to cover Jo's maternity leave. Some of you may already know Vanessa as she is a great friend and colleague. She will be at Naturally Chiropractic on Tuesday mornings and Friday afternoons. Estelle will be will also be working some extra hours while Jo is away.
Yum!! Food
While the good weather continues and your kids
are off school, why not
get them making their
own hand-made and healthy ice creams?
Frozen summer smoothies
Did you know you can take almost any smoothie recipe and turn it into an ice cream? Simply blend your favourite recipe, spread the mix into baking dish or deep sided tray and pop in the freezer. Every half hour or so, take it out, stir it up (to break down the ice crystals) and put it back until it's frozen. Alternatively, hunt the web for "ice lolly makers" and create your own frozen treat on a stick.
Try these:



whizz a tin of coconut milk, one avocado with a tablespoon of honey. Mash in a ripe banana and freeze. You could also add some nut butter or crushed sunflower or pumpkin seeds for added protein.

Chop a large banana in half and push an ice cream stick into the flat end.
Pop in the freezer for 20 minutes. Take out and dip in melted dark chocolate, which will set instantly. OR... Dip into the chocolate before freezing, roll in crushed nuts then into the freezer until the chocolate sets.

Blend 2 tablespoons of honey with a punnet strawberries and a punnet of raspberries, then add the juice of two oranges (fresh please!). Add a little water if the the mixture seems thick and freeze. You can even put this one into ice-cube trays and then add a few to a glass of water.
