Absolute Essential's Make a Difference project

Absolute Essential founder, Dr Bo Hendgen is a doctor in osteopathy, focused in paediatrics, and is passionate about helping children and assisting with cranial - osteopathic treatments.

Three years ago, Hendgen visited an orphanage in Manilla and noticed the varied needs of the children to assist to gain health. The carers were open to using Absolute Essential’s Mother & Child remedies during their daily routine.

“I taught the nurses how to use the Mother & Child products and we donated a regular quarterly shipment of 4-5 different types of products for respiratory complaints, skin issues, nappy care and to assist in building the immune system,” said Hendgen.

“I was impressed how the donations were recorded, applied with typed charts on the walls of each change and feeding station to assure everyone, including three shifts of carers (some with poor education) used the products correctly,” she said.

During her bi-annual visit last November, they shared some extraordinary results. They found the children had less colds and flu, better general health and many babies achieved a health score necessary prior release for adoption in considerably less time – what previously took up to 2 years, was now achievable in less than 9 months.

“This orphanage, the carers and everyone involved with these babies are doing fabulous work to making a permanent different in these children’s lives, I am so happy we can assist to make it that little bit better”, said Hendgen.
