About This Issue

Welcome to this issue of Natural News, which I hope you will find packed full of interesting articles. I have continued the topic of boosting immunity because it is so important to keep ourselves as well as possible over the winter months. There is an article on shifting stubborn fat because you may have been following a healthy diet from your New Year’s resolution and need a bit of extra help for that weight that has got stuck.

We all know we should be exercising but it is easy to forget the enormous benefits that exercise can give. These include improving mood and depression, reducing anxiety and stress, improving body shape and weight, reducing the risk of heart disease, lowering high blood pressure, reducing high cholesterol, lowering the risk of breast and colon cancer and reducing the risk of developing diabetes. And to add to those benefits is the fact that exercise can help building healthy bones. So this issue of Natural News features an article on exercise for osteoporosis prevention. So the message generally, knowing all these benefits, is for us to get moving!

Kind regards

Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD
