Eye news! Goji berry breakthrough
According to a small, randomized trial conducted at the University of California, regularly eating a small serving of dried goji berries may help prevent or delay the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in healthy middle-aged people. AMD can affect your ability to read or recognize faces as you age. Only a handful of goji berries five times a week for 90 days increased the density of protective pigments in the eyes of the study subjects.
These pigments in goji berries, lutein and zeaxanthin, filter out harmful blue light and provide antioxidant protection. Both help to protect the eyes during ageing. Talking about the eyes, read Dr Florrie Kerschbaumer’s introductory article on Iridology. Are you wondering just what else to eat to stay healthy, let us know what you think of The Sun Food article by Dawid Wolfe.
With so many families sending children back to school, it was pertinent to include an article in this issue with tips and advice to make the experience less stressful. Some of us are so tired and it is only the beginning of the year. I think the article on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, written by Patrick Holford, is one of the best on the topic that I have read in a long time.
I just love roses and remember once planting 100 rose bushes in my garden. I have included Debbie Battershill’s article Stop and Smell the Roses for all you rose lovers.
We are grateful that we can bring you many more wonderful articles, including one from Dr Johan Demartini on An Attitude of Gratitude. Enjoy the read!

An Attitude of GratitudeTable of Contents ↑|
I was born on Thanksgiving Day — my mother, it would seem, wanted me to be a grateful person. One day, when I was about four years old, she sat on my bed, leaned over to me and said, ‘Son, you must always count your blessings because those who count their blessings and are grateful for their life, receive more to be grateful for.’
