Letter from Marilyn – August 2007

Dr Marilyn Glenville PhDDear Reader,

It is always good to get your feedback on Natural News and also suggestions for future issues. Do let me know if there is a burning topic which you would like me to discuss and especially any where there has been controversy around the subject (very common in the nutritional world!).

Also I am happy to answer any of your health questions so you can email these in and the person who sends in the Star Question is sent a £10 voucher to spend on the Natural Health Practice website and a copy of one of my books (if there is a particular book you would like you can specify).

This issue of Natural News is packed with some very interesting articles and I also wanted to include other health concerns such as using non-stick pans as what we do in the home can make a big difference to keeping ourselves and our family healthy.

I have also covered insect repellants in this issue because what we put on our skin is just as important as what we eat and what supplements we take. Your skin is very porous and that is why HRT and nicotine patches work because they can be absorbed efficiently through the skin and into the bloodstream. So not matter what you put on your skin, moisturisers, shower gels, sunscreens, etc try and get the most natural products possible so that you are not rubbing toxins into your skin which will end up in your bloodstream. It does require a bit of label reading at first but once you get to know which products are good then the choices can be automatic.

Hope you all have a good and restful summer.

Kind regards

Marilyn's Signature
