Health begins with the food we eat, and continues through to the way we think and the relationships we have. The most important thing is that you view looking after yourself and your health as being a joyful experience.
The articles here are taken from research (both recent and in years past), knowledge and wisdom from my experience, and good ol’ fashion trial and error! All of them are aimed to inspire you to make better choices for your life and your health. At the very least I hope they will make you think and smile!

What I try to remember everyday is that food is a precious gift you give to your body to maintain it, your attitude and thoughts shape your reality, and too much laughter and love is never enough! I sincerely hope that these articles may help you in your journey to wellness and leave you happy and flourishing xxx
