Editor’s Letter

Overcoming Life’s Knocks

Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy. The shortest speech ever by Winston Churchill.

As was the case with Britain, great success can follow against all odds. Some of us survive adversity and thrive and some fall apart spectacularly. Mostly, the falling apart builds resilience. We all have the ability to be resilient to a certain degree, but resilience can also be developed through thinking, behavioural changes and learned life skills.

I believe it is your choice. Catch yourself in the moment and make the right choice. The difficult one may not be that difficult if you compare it to the ‘easy way out’ after substance abuse as one example of an unhealthy coping mechanism. You make it more difficult for yourself as you first have to recover, and then try again.

You are in control of your life. Have trust, perspective and persevere. Develop positive self-talk and avoid running your victim story. Build your support structure and look for the funny things in life. Find those things that make you laugh and spend your time there, rather than listening to sad songs that will only bring more sadness. There are some very funny reels on social media!

According to our expert psychologist and natural health practitioner, Dr Adolf Lowies: ‘Resilience won’t make your problems go away but can give you the ability to see past them, find some meaning, and survive whatever life is dealing you. It can help you endure loss, chronic stress, traumatic events, change and other challenges. Resilient individuals have cultivated a sense of forgiveness, and regardless of the setback or slight, they are able to box it up, put it in a package and let go of it. It is in the act of struggling with the senselessness of it all that our human spirit is kindled and tempered.’

Make the right choice and support your recovery. Adapt to stressors by being more flexible and tolerant and then add a dash of optimism!

An in-depth Look at Early Menopause

By |2021-11-25T09:21:35+00:00November 21st, 2021|

Table of Contents |

For most women early menopause is a frightening experience, even though it comes with the cessation of the monthly bleeding which may seem like a relief to many. It is as if age has somehow caught up. Women believe that this is the beginning of the end, that sexual pleasure is on the downswing, the vagina will dry up, bones will disintegrate, skin will become wrinkled and dry, weight will increase and depression will soon set in. Dr Bernard Brom takes a closer look at the causes and diagnosis of early menopause.

You can increase your child’s intelligence, attention span, concentration, problem-solving ability, emotional response, mood and physical coordination – all the facets of intelligence – simply by changing what goes into and onto their bowls, plates and lunch boxes.

Where’s my Waist?

Table of Contents |

Most people believe that doing hundreds of sit-ups or abdominal crunches will automatically reduce your waistline and give you a rock-solid six-pack. Wrong! The reality is that you’ll also need to reduce the layer of body fat covering your midsection in order to see those toned abdominals.

Why do we over-eat?

By |2021-12-06T11:52:10+00:00November 24th, 2021|

Table of Contents |

Our sedentary, food-abundant circumstances may be a by-product of our ‘success’ as a society, and our nutrient, emotional and spiritual deficiencies a result of our hectic lifestyles – but they clearly create imbalances, gaps and voids in our lives, often leading to overeating and obesity.
