If you snooze you lose
Thank you for the feedback we’ve received so far on the two issues we have published. Many of you our readers, the industry and authors love it. We are so happy! Thank you too, for the nostalgic notes about our print magazine Natural Medicine, that is no more. We love that you kept the print copies and we so enjoy looking at our statistics as we see how many times you visit our website and which articles you enjoy.
I ponder on the statement: ‘If you snooze, you lose’. Now I wonder if the word ‘ponder’ was coined because it is so easy to ponder next to a pond? I looked it up. Ponder comes from the French ponderare which means to weigh, balance, ponder. Next time you waste your health, you may want to ponder the side effects? Now I ponder if I will use the word ponder differently from now on…
‘If you snooze, you lose’ in my opinion, is not entirely a true statement. It is in the missing out and living through loss, the making of mistakes and the missed opportunities that we grow and discover what truly matters. If snoozing brings more gratitude and humility, I’m all for it!
IN THIS ISSUE
We ask a doctor if the side-effects of taking statins are worth the risk. We find ways to ease colic in crying babies and the secrets to living to a ripe old age. Feeling sluggish? You may be in need of a detox. The docs tell us how. Is snoring keeping you awake? Is it affecting more than your sex life? And what is really the problem with grain consumption?
Enjoy and please keep the letters and feedback coming!
