Thank you for all your letters! Keep it coming as you inspire content! Here is another issue packed with good health.
Dealing with the ups and downs of life is always a combination of looking after both what is inside and outside one’s self. We all know that health is not about the inside only… in fact, it is much more about the outside. What we eat, drink, think and feel affects our health. Who we surround ourselves with is critical to our health and wellbeing. Can you afford not to say goodbye to those who have the potential to make you sick?
With every goodbye, there is something to learn. I want to share this excerpt from Comes the Dawn by Veronica Shoffstal: ‘After a while, you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much, so you plant your garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure, and really are strong, and you really do have worth. And you learn; with every goodbye, you learn.’

I have been taking a multivitamin, but have been concerned that after a couple of hours my urine is a neon yellow colour! Does this mean it is not being absorbed in my body, not taking enough water, or throwing good money down the toilet?!
Indian Head Massage has been tried and tested over thousands of years in the laboratory of life. In earlier times it was sought after by maharajas and shahs, gurus and saints. Today it is as popular as it was then. It is part of everyday life in India, and it is precisely through its lack of pretension that it weaves its magic. The editorial team approached three different practitioners for an overall perspective of this treatment.
