Letter from Marilyn – August 2008

Friday, August 1st, 2008

MarilynDear Readers,


I do hope you are enjoying Natural News and the aim is to keep giving you a good variety of articles and news.  If there is something particular you would like to know about then do contact me as I am happy to include topics of specific interest.


In this issue of Natural News, there is a really easy to follow 24 hour summer detox, which can be useful if you have been overdoing things while on holiday.  There is an article on breathing because this is something we all do, every minute of every day and yet very rarely think about it and it is so important that we breathe correctly.  There is information on vitamin C because everybody knows about its immune benefits but there is a lot more to this water soluble vitamin than just that.


One of the articles covers cholesterol and although we don’t want too much of it, we also don’t want too little because it has certain functions.   For instance, our sex hormones are synthesized from cholesterol and it a major component of the membrane that surrounds every cell.  So as always with Nature we are aiming for a balance.


Hope you are enjoying the summer months and the wonderful variety of fruits and vegetables around at this time of the year.


Kind regards




Marilyn Glenville
