Letter from Marilyn (March 2009)

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Dear Readers


Welcome to this issue of Natural News with longer days and brighter skies.  Doesn’t it make such a difference when the days are brighter and we have more daylight?

This issue of Natural News takes us through a number of landmarks in our lives: the 40s, 50s and 60s, where we may need to be a bit more vigilant about certain aspects of our health. Also included in this issue is the serious matter of bowel cancer; what you can do to help protect yourself and also making sure that you get checked out if you notice any unusual changes in your bowels.


There is also a feature on the mineral boron, it is classed as an ultra trace mineral because we don’t need much of it, but it is important that we have enough. We mainly think of this mineral in relation to osteoporosis because it can help prevent calcium loss, but it does have other benefits too. Research has shown that in areas where soil levels of boron are low there is a higher rate of osteoarthritis. Restricting boron intake in healthy men and women has also been shown to impair brain function and mental performance. The suggestion is that boron is important for optimum functioning of both long and short term memory. Boron also helps with the conversion of vitamin D to its active form, which in turn is important for the absorption of calcium.


You will also find in this issue is a recipe for using kale, which is a lovely green vegetable but not everybody likes it just steamed, so I hope this recipe is a bit more unusual.


Kind regards


Marilyn Glenville
