Letter from Marilyn – October 2007

Dear Reader,

Well we are really and truly on the way to autumn now. It is interesting that as the weather becomes cooler and the light changes, we are drawn to want to eat more warming foods. This is actually the right way to eat and it is more in line with eating with the seasons. So as we go into winter, use more cooked vegetables than salads and go for soups, casseroles and stews. And the more we can eat of the foods that are in season the better our health can be over the winter.

This issue of Natural News contains an article on high blood pressure which has hit the news fairly recently because of its devastating yet silent effects on our health. The lifetime risk of developing high blood pressure is now more than 90% and it is estimated that every five minutes someone in the UK has a stroke, yet over 40% of those strokes could be prevented by controlling high blood pressure. Unfortunately it is symptomless but may prove fatal with a heart attack or stroke. But you will be pleased to hear that there are natural ways of lowering blood pressure.

I wanted to include an article on remedies that you would have in your kitchen and this one focuses on sore throats. I can remember all sorts of remedies my mother used to use which were very popular at the time. If you have any good home remedies then do let me know as it is lovely to pass on tips that previous generations used and that may get lost over time.

Wishing you good health.

Kind regards,

Marilyn Glenville
