Autumn 2022

In this issue:

2022 has been off to a whirl wind start and we feel the need to celebrate our fifteenth issue. What a journey!

As always it has been a pleasure writing this issue and bringing you stories that will set you up for the autumn months.

In this issue we focus on the many ways we can boost our immunity and stay healthy to ensure we are in a fit condition to fight off any viruses as they arise. For the second time, we talk to health guru Jason Shon Bennett about gut health and Community Health Store naturopath Sheryl Scott gives us tips and tricks to reset and restore our energy naturally.

As always, Dr Libby Weaver keeps our mood and emotions in check by discussing the ways to deal with strong emotions. They often catch you off guard, especially in the cooler months when we experience less sunlight and vitamin D.

For our seasonal fitness column we talk to the lovely Rachel Grunwell about resistance training! Time to beat the winter blues and get the blood flowing through our bodies.







Summer 2021

In this issue:

In this Summer issue read about the effects of Spore-Forming Probiotics and the benefits available for your gut health! 

Dr Libby explains what caffeine is really doing to our health and how to know the signals and effects of daily caffeine in your diet. Helping to influence you to feel and make choices that serve YOUR health!

This Christmas special highlights different alternatives to stay on top of your health throughout the festivities. As many of us will be preparing for a delicious festive meal this December, followed by a decadent dessert. It won't be long until the effects of these rich foods and delightful calories begin to take their toll on our digestive system. 







Spring 2021

In this issue:

It’s great to be back. We’ve been busy bringing you some fabulous stories that will help give you a boost of energy and kickstart you out of your winter hibernation. 

Our health and wellbeing is still just as important (if not more) as it was back then. In this issue we talk to Dr. Libby Weaver about earthing. We learn how to be grounded amongst the chaos of our daily lives. 

We’re also all about ‘harnessing the power of  Aotearoa’s native plants’ and talk to Naturopath Helen Paul-Smith about the wonderful ways you can incorporate these into our lifestyle. 

Dr. Kathleen is back and talks about iron deficiency and how to naturally 
support our iron levels as we sail into the warmer and more social months. 

Along with a tasty chocolatey smoothie from our friends at Mitchells Nutrition – the perfect Spring time breakfast choice!
