Event Title: Helen Padarin, Naturopath - ADHD & Gut Health
Organisation: ADHD Support Australia
Email: vivian@adhdsupportaustralia.com.au
Posted On: 26/02/2019

Speaker Evening: Helen Padarin, Naturopath

ADHD & Gut Health

Specific details of talk coming soon.

Helen aims to promote awareness and provide education about treatment options for immune disorders, digestive disorders and neurological disorders.

Chronic conditions from autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, ASD and ADHD, all of which have been on the rise in the last couple of decades have many overlapping underlying factors.  

Dietary intervention, naturopathic solutions and a biomedical approach are crucial for the effective treatment of these conditions.

Her mission is to educate and promote awareness about a truly nourishing diet and lifestyle for everyone.  She's passionate about fermented foods and traditionally prepared whole foods that are free from damaging and unnecessary processing and additives. 

She'll help you get away from politically correct food myths and fad diets and make it easier for you to get back to real food, loaded with healthy nutrients.  Our food choices are pivotal not only for our own health, but also for that of our environment.

Naturopath, nutritionist, medical herbalist and author Helen Padarin has been in clinical practice since 2001. She works from one of Sydney's most highly regarded integrated medical centres along with GP's, a paediatrician and other practitioners. 

Helen was called on to write a chapter on paediatrics and ASD for a peer-reviewed clinical textbook published by Elsevier in 2011, has co-authored the book "BubbaYumYum" with Charlotte Carr and Pete Evans, co-authored the “The Complete Gut Health Cookbook” with Chef Pete Evans and has written several articles for health magazines.  

Since 2011 Helen has been a regular presenter and ambassador for the Mindd Foundation, and has presented for Health Masters Live and ACNEM, providing post-graduate education for GP’s, naturopaths, nutritionists and other health care professionals. While living in NZ for over 4 years, Helen also lectured anatomy and physiology for the NZ College of Massage at the NZ Institute of Sport.

Helen holds a bachelor degree in Health Sciences (Naturopathy), advanced diplomas in nutrition, herbal medicine and massage and has completed extensive post-graduate training in treatment for metabolic, neurologic, digestive and immune disorders.

Helen loves working with other health professionals, community groups, thought leaders and game changers providing a truly holistic approach to health and in doing so creating a supportive community.

Cuddle, bounce and bop with your baby in our foundations music classes in age-appropriate activities for newborn, infants and crawlers.

We've learnt that infants are born with billions of nerve cells and a nearly unlimited potential for connections between those nerve cells. Every time an infant has a sensory experience, neural pathways are formed. Every time it’s repeated the learning is strengthened. The greater number of neural pathways, the greater the brain power. Rich sensory environments are vital to the brain development of infants. In a Kindermusik babies class:

we understand your baby's development
we strengthen those early parent-child bonds through delightful and rewarding interaction with your baby
we focus on child development and communication with your baby
we sing, we dance, we play and we learn
we allow infants to understand and anticipate patterns
we play with the steady beat, which underlies our ability to pick up the patterns of language.
cultivate listening skills to enhance language development
we include a comprehensive music education kit so that you can continue your class experience at home.
