Weekend Read

Watercolor hand tree web banner

As I welcome you to another Weekend Read, I think it was rather inevitable that I would begin where I ended last weekend. I have to tell you that I was in two minds whether or not to send a dedicated email mid-week because I have rather a lot to say about Secrets and Lies. With balance, I have chosen to jump onto my self-appointed podium, so please forgive me for another longer than usual Weekend Read, but these things are important. They always have been. And of course I need to give you the feedback. It was staggering, in its truth. But that’s the thing really, you cannot argue with the truth, which goes across all things in life.

In some ways, I am quite tempted not to write about products at all this week, but as ever there are so many things to share with you and so that’s what I’ll do. Share. And I will begin with hair thinning and hair loss. Again. Look, I make absolutely no apology for this because the issue is ongoing and I will not ignore it. I remember way, way back, when I first wrote about the extraordinary benefits of Fulvic Acid in topicals, such as shampoo, I received an email from a customer.  It made me cry. But then I think you all know by now that my emotions run close to the surface.

Weekend Read

Secrets revealed from red ripped piece of paper

So as I welcome you to another Weekend Read, I am a little bit excited about a new launch. I’m actually talking about Cadbury’s Orange Twirl, which is being resurrected after last year’s unprecedented demand for this Limited Edition bar of wonderment. I have a friend who was on a mission to track one down. He couldn’t. We live in hope. And that’s the thing really, we live in hope of all good things chocolate included, (in moderation) because that’s the most important thing right now, together, of course, with our health and humour which I hope we can uphold together.  And I know that’s a tough call.

Throughout the past six months, my modus operandi has been very clear.  Everything has changed and we have needed to embrace that change in the best way we could.  For me, it has to be about communication, and it’s all about the written word.  On words, I have always believed that words can heal in differing ways, which is probably one of the things I care most about.  I will end this Weekend Read with some pretty strong words, because they need to be written and they need to be said.  But before that, let’s delve into some of the products which I hope make a positive difference.  And that’s the mission too.  It always has been.

At some point in the distant past, I wrote about loving products. With a gracious acceptance of the years of research and development that precedes a launch, I often kiss my products and as some talk to plants, I talk to products. And Sage Complex is one such product.  The history of this product is pretty profound.  In a former life it was called MenoHerbs until a dastardly commercial act of greed and jealousy (I’m on one today!) forced us to change the name.  This was, and obviously still is, Shabir’s formulation and with one or two minor tweaks over the years, it remains one of our bestselling supplements.

And as I talk to Sage Complex, I thank it for being a powerful female hormone balancing supplement and for helping to conquer menopausal symptoms.  These include helping to alleviate hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and mood swings.  And it’s the mood swings that I want to say a few more words about.  Shabir has always recommended that all women should take this from the age of 35, but I will go one further.  Stress related mood swings are of course incredibly prevalent given the ongoing global uncertainty.  In other words you don’t have to be menopausal (or peri-menopausal) to benefit.  All of our hormones are dancing in weird ways.  They need to stop.  And I need to write about a treat.  The Sage Complex Treat.

I think you are going to like this one.  It was Shabir’s idea, so all thanks to him as we include a free travel sized (15 Capsules) bottle of Hyaluronic Acid High Strength Capsules, worth £17.50, with every order placed for Sage Complex. Although most of us take HA anyway, if we specifically link it to the menopausal years, then it is known that a decrease in oestrogen is responsible for affecting skin in a number of ways, particularly decreasing the defence against damaging free radicals, both externally and internally.  Skin also becomes thinner with less collagen being produced, which in turn decreases elasticity and increases dehydration, often leading to wrinkle formation.  To some extent the above can be mitigated in some way by using HA supplementation.

So the logistics.  To receive the Sage Complex Treat, please click on the Sage Complex Treat link below.  Such is its importance, this offer will last across the weekend ending at midnight BST tomorrow (Sunday 13 September).  And just to say, I may well kiss my products, and I will continue to do so, but on this occasion social distancing prevails and I will not be kissing Shabir, either for the creation of the products or the treat.  If you feel so inclined, you are free to do so.  Virtually.  Feel the love Shabir.
The Sage Complex Treat (Sage Complex £25 for 90 Capsules; Hyaluronic Acid High Strength Capsules Travel Size £17.50 for 15 Capsules); Hyaluronic Acid High Strength Capsules £35 for 30 Capsules; Hormone Mimicking Supplements Should Be Used By Nearly All Women Over 35 

It all started about two or three weeks ago.  The emails, that is.  Each and every year we release a product called Triple Flu Defense.  It is a year specific homeopathic tincture and it is an amalgamation of research from doctors across the globe in helping to establish efficacy against viruses.  So many of you swear by this product, thus the interest, thus the emails.  And it has now arrived.  That will make a whole lot of you happy.

Given common respiratory and flu-like symptoms, many of the remedies in last year’s version are present again this year and cited as key ingredients.  These include Bryonia, Gelsemium, Altimonium tart, Phosphoric acid and Phosphorus.  With the addition of Arsenicum, Camphora, Eupatorium and Lycopodium to help strengthen the tincture, this year’s formulation has a ‘+’ added because of the various enhancements.  So Triple Flu Defense+ 2020-2021, it is then.  The directions for use are on the product page and they are quite specific so please do take the time and care to ensure you follow these correctly.

And here comes my Covid-19 caveat, because I have to. Whilst this is an extremely powerful formulation, it has not been tested against Covid-19. Obviously there is not a single product that can claim immunity against Covid.  But, and as I have been writing most of this year, we can protect ourselves as best we can to help build, enhance and protect our immune system with specifically targeted products.  This is one of them.
Triple Flu Defense+ (2020-2021) by Dr Nenninger £27 for 30 ml

Time for a new product launch.  And it’s a beauty launch.  This is particularly close to my heart for many different reasons, not least because I have always strongly supported niche brands and their very survival depends upon the recognition of their honesty and integrity in all that they do and the efficacy of the products they bring into the world.  The brand is Willowberry.  The product is Sensitive Face Oil.  And I love it.

For so many years, I have written about facial oils.  Divine fragrances waft under my nose, and that’s about it.  I can’t use them because they are virtually all loaded with essential oils and as most of you know, I have an extreme allergy to essential oils.  The beauty industry, in their infinite wisdom, have been known to make statements saying that essential oils are not skin irritants.  I will tell you otherwise.  For an ever-increasing amount of us, they are the ‘forbidden fruits’ of beauty and even if you don’t get a full-blown allergic reaction, those little bumps that can so often appear under the skin, may in fact be essential oil related.

So the product. It is loaded with Rosehip, Chia Seed and Vitamin E. It is extraordinarily nourishing, it helps protect the skin’s barrier function and being ultra-light, it is quickly absorbed, so in effect you can use it in the morning as well as in the evening.  I have been testing Sensitive Face Oil for quite a long time. We held the launch back because of the pandemic, but I am so thrilled to be able to share this with you now.  It’s one of those keeper products and I’m so happy to have it residing in my bathroom. I think you will be too.
Sensitive Face Oil by Willowberry £26.99 for 30 ml (Vegan) 

Earlier this year we launched Indeora Healthy Magnesium Deodorant to great acclaim.  Little surprise because it is a highly effective, aluminium-free natural deodorant, which is non-irritating and a healthy alternative to potentially harmful antiperspirants. With the addition of the super-mineral Magnesium, this deodorant has been inspired by Ayurvedic principles, focusing on the use of naturally derived active ingredients.

And as I write about the virtues of this deodorant, a treat. When you buy Indeora’s Healthy Magnesium Deodorant, we will automatically include Indeora’s Hyaluronic Hand Sanitiser (75 ml).  It has been clinically formulated for dry skin, the fragrance is Sweet Orange and you cannot buy this as a stand-alone product because it was created to help support and acknowledge Indeora’s customers and followers.  This is a Limited Edition offer, you will need to click on the link below to receive this gift and it will end when it ends.  Amen to that.
Indeora Deodorant + Free Hyaluronic Hand Sanitiser £16.99 

I know that my opening words were all about chocolate, but I am not going to apologise about that because heaven only knows we are not saints.  Over the years many of my friends have questioned the fact that I write about my Diet Coke and other habits when we are, obviously, a health and beauty website.  My answer is always the same.  I will not live my life pretending to be something that I’m not.  And, with respect to those who do, I am not going to exist on nuts and grains, whilst dreaming about big fat chips.  With salt and vinegar.

That said, I do think that an element of moderation is needed and I also know that because of lockdown and various other circumstances, so many of you (I read all the emails that come in) would like to drop a bit of weight.  And so I will refer you to one of Shabir’s archived articles about Yacon Syrup.  Organic Yacon Syrup helps boost your immune system, aids weight loss, helps alleviate constipation and helps control sugar levels, which is an entire subject of its own which I will write about some time over the next few weeks.

Back to it and Yacon Syrup can help increase your metabolism greatly without really changing your dietary habits, as long as those habits are quite sensible.  Controversially or otherwise, I do not believe in diets, but that is a personal statement.  What I will say though, and I feel a bit of a hero, is that I have more or less given up on Diet Coke.  Maybe I have one or two a week, if that, and since giving it up, most of the bloat has gone.  Gone I tell you.  I’ve also given up on those flavoured waters. No names, but they tend to bloat and clog you up too.

Anyway, anyway, do read all about Yacon Syrup, it is far more heroic than I am. From joggers to jeans. Without the muffin-top.  Perhaps.
Organic Yacon Syrup £15.99 for 425 ml; Can Yacon Syrup Help You Lose Weight? 

However buoyant we are usually, the current climate is triggering a tsunami of anxiety and depression, which affects people to varying degrees of intensity.  Many of us don’t want to take medication, writes Sarah in this week’s Health Notes. With so many of us looking around for alternative ways of calming our fearful brains, Sarah examines how yoga can help anxiety.
How Yoga Can Help Anxiety by Sarah Stacey 

Let’s do a couple of updates and I’m going to start with the monumental wait list we have for Mrs White’s Unstung Hero.  We have stated on the product page that we expected another consignment around the middle of September and I think we might just be able to keep to that, which is a great relief. In detail, France has woken up from its August siesta, the bottles have just arrived at the manufacturers to be filled and sometime next week they will be making their way to us.  So it’s either going to be at the end of this week, but I’m thinking it will more than likely be sometime the following week. Hold on!
Mrs White’s Unstung Hero Mosquito Repellent £20 for 250 ml 

I often write about product marriages that are made in heaven. There are quite a few of them and after I wrote about using the Healing Patches for Restless Leg Syndrome, we received an email singing the praises of Diosmin Plus too.  We have always said that you should allow at least 28 days for supplementation to really kick in, but this customer told us that after reading Shabir’s article on Diosmin Plus, she started taking it and after three days she went through the night without any leg problems.  And she has been fine ever since. So it’s Diosmin Plus and a Healing Patch then.  He has his uses. I’m talking about Shabir.
Diosmin Plus £26 for 60 Capsules; Healing Patches by Ross J. Barr £15 for 5 Patches; What Causes Restless Legs? 

It’s the Saturday only treat, so with every order placed today (Saturday 12 September) for £25 and over (excluding p&p), we will automatically send you a bottle of Pure Blends Soothing Micellar Water (250 ml).  Its ingredients include Chamomile and Cotton Seed extract to help soothe skin and as ever, this will not show up on your order confirmation or invoice, but will be included in your order.  Tra-la. 

Last Saturday I sat reading your emails with tears rolling down my face and a great big lump in my throat.  I will fully own up to being extraordinarily emotional and sensitive; quite honestly I don’t think I could do what I do if I was any different.

And through my tears, I am of course referring to Sally Brampton’s article, Change, which I felt was so pertinent at this moment in our lives, even though it was written several years ago.  I know Sally’s article was shared extensively and it was in that moment, last Saturday morning, that I knew what I had to do today.

If you didn’t already know, Sally was the poster girl for depression. She was bi-polar and the last article she wrote for us was called Secrets and Lies. In short, Sally wrote about mental illness, which was her own story. I think that each of us can find something in her innate wisdom that will either be relevant to ourselves, or to those close to us. It needs to be said of course that there is no stigma attached to any form of mental illness and each of us have a responsibility to help recognise and support this fact.

But of course that is not nearly enough. Whilst I have such a strong belief, as I wrote above, that words can be incredibly healing, conversely words can damage and kill. I do not say that lightly.  For the longest time I have written about cyber-bullying and at a time when so many are at a very low ebb, it still continues. I just cannot fathom what on earth these abusive perpetrators hope to achieve or, indeed, who they think they are. But in so many cases they are the root cause of mental instability in others.  At what cost do we allow these people to get away with it.  We cannot and we will not. We have to make a stand.

This is absolutely not about me, but I am prepared to bare my soul to tell you that I speak from experience. Several experiences. And as is so often the case, these delinquent beings (sorry, I will not hold back) do not have a clue as to who I am or what I am. Their observations are based on opinion, their opinion, and not fact.

In one particular incident I was called a ‘cow’ by a certain CEO of a certain company.  It received thousands of likes.  So thousands of people were complicit in believing I am a cow.  Except none of them know me.  In another, my whole being was plastered all over social media.  Except every single word was a lie.  And I received death threats.  I’ll leave it there.  For now.

I need to end this with Sally’s words:
‘So I say this. Keep no secrets and tell no lies. Ask for the truth and I will tell you’.

Once again, if you are able to share Sally’s article, then please do so.
It really matters.
Secrets and Lies by Sally Brampton

Wishing you a restful weekend.

With love.

Weekend Read

Stacked chairs with cloud against coral color background. Minimal success concept background.

And suddenly it’s September. As we step into the Autumn months, we embrace all that it brings with hope and a pragmatic acceptance of who and what we are in this ever-changing world.  It is my favourite season of the year. We are through the heat of the Summer and I welcome the cooler days and nights. If we are talking health, then this is where, under normal circumstances, I would start writing about protecting our immunity. Except I’ve been writing about it for most of the year and I will continue to do so because of its importance.

But before we go any further, there are other things I would like to talk about. Such as Saturday mornings.  Will I ever go out on a Saturday morning again.  Extremely doubtful.  It is at this point that I would like to thank each of you who send emails, not only about products, but about all the other mad things I write about too. You see, there has to be a balance in life and laughing together is a great balance. Not least discussing Selling Sunset with you, which is how I spent most of last Saturday. It is the zeitgeist.  And it rather amused me to read an article about Sunset in The Times last Saturday too. I’m still laughing.  And, it needs to be said, waiting for Series Four. Rather impatiently.

Anyway, anyway, onwards we go and, as ever, we are headed straight into a treat and it’s all about our skin. With each changing season, we adjust the products we use accordingly and although some are a given throughout the year, there are always those that we need to include in any regimen. And so it is with these three products. ‘Fabulous Skin’ includes three of the most researched supplements required for healthy, radiant and youthful skin.  They are Hyaluronic Acid, Skin Restoring Ceramides and Astaxanthin with Phospholipids.

Obviously Hyaluronic Acid needs no words from me; most of you take it and I’ve been taking HA supplementation for over 20 years.  I got hooked into it because it was so often described as the ‘fountain of youth’ (I’ll take that thank you) but of course it is hugely beneficial for so many other reasons, including helping to cushion our joints.  Onwards, and clinical studies have shown that wheat ceramide supplementation enhances skin moisture levels in a very measurable way, which can only be a very good thing and Astaxanthin, the third supplement, is an extremely important antioxidant.

Shabir has written reams about Astaxanthin and I am linking two of his archived articles about the importance of Astaxanthin below.  This particular formulation is blended with Phospholipids to help facilitate the maximum absorption of Astaxanthin into the bloodstream, where it is transported to cells throughout the body.  So there we have it. Three skin-changing and skin-enhancing products for £60, instead of £74, which means you get Astaxanthin with Phospholipids as a free gift from me to you.

We are worth it, our skin is worth it; I’m not sure Shabir thinks I am worth it, but never mind that.  Fabulous Skin is a Saturday only offer and will end at midnight BST tonight (Saturday 5 September) or whilst stock lasts.  Whichever comes first.
Fabulous Skin £60 (Hyaluronic Acid Capsules High Strength £35 for 30 Vegecaps; Skin Restoring Ceramides £25 for 30 Liquid Capsules; Astaxanthin with Phospholipids £14 for 30 Softgels); Astaxanthin Protects The Whole Body; Astaxanthin: The Powerful Age-Defying Antioxidant 

Staying on skin, the response to Shabir’s article on chin acne was immense.  If you missed it last weekend, then you can read it here, but I feel it is also important to resurrect his article about blackheads, which are a great concern for so many.  Blackheads can develop at any stage of life, but generally start from our teens during which time hormones are usually out of balance.  And on from there, Shabir discusses the treatment of blackheads using salicylic acid.
Using Salicylic Acid For BlackheadsSalicylic Acid 2% Serum by GoW for VH £10 for 30 ml 

Two new products.  Both from Better You. The first is Vitamin C Daily Oral Spray.  It has been formulated to provide a fast, effective and convenient way to supplement this immune boosting nutrient.  It combines 100 mg of Vitamin C, naturally sourced from Acerola Cherry Extract, with Selenium, to help support immune health, and Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) to help protect cells from oxidative stress.  The dosage is four sprays daily for adults and everybody can use it, including children from the age of one. There are no known contraindications.
Vitamin C Daily Oral Spray by Better You £9.95 for 25 ml

Let’s up the ante and we do it with DLux 4000 Vitamin D Daily Oral Spray.  This is the latest addition to Better You’s award-winning Vitamin D oral spray range and it comes as a maximum strength 4000 IU Vitamin D3 designed to elevate and maintain Vitamin D levels in the body.  This optimum strength daily oral spray has been scientifically formulated to deliver Vitamin D directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the primary processing by the gut.

Having written about the huge importance of Vitamin D over the past few months, this is the product that I believe we should all be taking, not only for the now, but for all time.  I mean I’ve only been campaigning about this for the past ten years.  I’ll continue for the next ten years if I’m still here.  Could be debatable.
DLux 4000 Vitamin D Daily Oral Spray by Better You £9.95 for 15 ml 

Because I believe the inside/out approach to beauty is so important, let’s go topical.  And we’ll do this with a treat.  A Sarah Chapman treat to be precise.  So whilst stock lasts, with every Sarah Chapman product (or products) ordered for £15 and above, we will automatically include Eye Recovery (5 ml), which is worth £16. This will not show on your order confirmation or invoice and there is only one gift per customer, so please don’t panic. We share. With love.
Sarah Chapman

There are quite a few new supplements being released at the moment and there are one or two that Shabir is rather taken with, which is quite something.  Uric Acid Control is one of them.  In short, uric acid is a waste by-product.  It is formed when your body breaks down purines, a chemical compound found in some food and drinks.  Purines appear when cells die and get taken apart and although most of the Uric Acid is excreted through normal bodily function, some remains.

If you have high levels of Uric Acid, it can be a sign of disease such as gout.  Rich in tannin, derived from the edible fruit of the Terminalia bellerica tree, Uric Acid Control will help to keep your uric acid within a healthy range by supporting healthy concentrations of two critical enzymes involved in uric acid metabolism, Xanthine oxidase and inducible nitric oxide.  Aside from helping to treat gout, it is also recommended for those with arthritis, diabetes and psoriasis or for those with a high alcohol consumption.
Uric Acid Control by Life Extension £20 for 60 Vegetarian Capsules

With a heavy leaning on supplementation this week, I will continue by telling you about Good Green Stuff.  There are of course thousands of this type of product on the market, but Shabir believes this formulation is pretty heroic.  With over 75 nutrient-rich ingredients, this is so much more than just greens.  It is a potent blend of carefully selected fruits, vegetables and herbs with added vitamins, minerals, probiotics, antioxidants and other essential nutrients.

Formulated to help improve immunity and memory, it also helps reduce stress and boosts metabolism. One scoop daily.  In a cold glass of water. Or for the ultimate kick, mix it into Fulvic Acid Elixir.  I guess you all know what I’m doing. I’m reminded of Popeye. Not Olive Oyl. Poor Olive Oyl. Her affections were torn between Popeye and Bluto.  And whose baby was Swee’Pea exactly?  I think I had better stop there before I get totally carried away, but you get the gist. Take your greens.
Good Green Stuff by Nuzest £22.50 for 120 grams; Fulvic Acid Elixir £30 for 480 ml

If I may, just a word here about Vitamin C 23% + Ferulic Acid.  I know we haven’t got to the end of the year yet, but I think I could call the shots now and tell you that it will be our bestselling beauty product for the third year running.  Interestingly, C-Deep is running second, so in other words it is all about Vitamin C and in some ways I think it will continue through for the foreseeable future.  I have to include Derma E’s Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches in this too because we can just about keep them in stock.  And as I said I would, I took an entire jar and plastered them all over my body.  Cue phenomenal skin!

Furthermore, incredible as it may seem, Shabir has written approximately 1200 articles about Vitamin C.  All forms.  I am not going to list them (as if), but they are there to be read and referred to, should you feel the need.  I also need to say here that we are still using temporary packaging for Vitamin C 23%.  I know it is not ideal, but the packaging issues created by Covid-19 are nothing short of a nightmare.  So please accept my apologies, it was either the temporary packaging or going out of stock for several months.  And quite honestly I couldn’t face another massive wait list.  I hope you understand.
Vitamin C 23% + Ferulic Acid by GoW for VH £10 for 30 ml; C-Deep Vitamin C Serum by GoW for VH £18 for 30 ml; Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches £20 for 60 Gel Patches

Let’s talk about iS Clinical, which as most of you know, I love and adore.  In line with several other brands, new product launches have been delayed because of the ongoing restrictions placed around raw ingredient and componentry issues.  Whilst of course I adore launching new products, most especially for my LA boyfriends (Bryan Johns and Alec Call, Founders), we are going to have to wait until at least October for the next launch, which I promise you is amazing because I’ve been testing it for months.  Slight clue.  It’s not for the face.

In the meantime, let me say a few words about a product that is for the face and that is Copper Firming Mist.  We launched this several years ago, but it still remains one of my must-have-must-use iS Clinical products.  It provides antioxidant protection against many ageing processes such as sun damage and movement lines.  It helps regulate the skin with collagen stimulating copper and botanically sourced PCA to help regulate sebaceous gland activity.  It is fabulous for congested skin and helps prevent bacteria seeping in, which may cause skin flaws.

I am forever in awe of iS Clinical’s immaculate formulations.  I invite you to spritz with me.  And furthermore, if you feel like your skin is dehydrated, then do try Hydra-Cool Serum.  This is the serum that I always take with me on long-haul journeys, using copious amounts.  It always saves my skin and it’s still doing so, even though I’m not doing long-haul.  Or short-haul.  Or anything really.  It’s fine.  This too shall pass.
Copper Firming Mist by iS Clinical £26 for 75 ml; Hydra-Cool Serum by iS Clinical £50 for 15 ml; Hydra-Cool Serum by iS Clinical £80 for 30 ml

After a summer recess, Sarah is back with Health Notes and this week she delves into aromatherapy.  Once derided as scented woo-woo at best, quackery at worst, the fragrant power of aromatherapy is now recognised as imparting significant benefits.  Sarah investigates.
Aromatherapy For Autumn

We are nearing the end and I would just like to talk about one more health concern, which is very common and irritating.  At some point in our lives, most of us will probably experience the mild symptoms of seeing tiny spots floating around in our vision.  These are called floaters and are defined as small specks or clouds that drift into the field of vision.  They are generally harmless, but nevertheless Shabir does another one of his in-depths on the subject together with his recommendations.
Eye Floaters and FlashesNutrof Total £14.99 for 30 Capsules; Hyaluronic Acid Capsules High Strength £35 for 30 Vegecaps 

It’s the Saturday only treat, so with every order placed today (Saturday 5 September) for £25 and over (excluding p&p), we will automatically send you a botanical fibre facial mask from Biobelle.  It is called Rise & Shine and it is loaded with pineapple extract and glycolic acid.  As ever, this will not show up on your order confirmation or invoice, but will be included in your order.  Enjoy.

Finally, I am going to end with an article written by Sally Brampton.  As so many of you know, we lost Sally a few years ago and in keeping with her wishes, I have kept all of her articles listed on our site.  Her wisdom was profound, it always will be and this week I want to share the article she wrote about change.  I feel her words are so pertinent for this moment.  In my dreams she is not only with me, but with each of us and somewhere on a cloud, she would want you to know that you are not alone.  We never are.
Change by Sally Brampton

My love to each of you.

Weekend Read

Sunset Boulevard street sign with palm trees in the background

As the weeks progress, one thing is becoming abundantly clear and that is that I feel like I’m writing a soap opera, with a different episode each week.  In some ways I suppose it maps the life and times of each of us as we continue to walk together into the unknown.  I have always thought that life works in mysterious ways and having the trust that I do, I do what I do in each moment because it intuitively feels right.  For each of us.  And that’s all that really matters.  For the now.  And in the end.

Most unfortunately for Shabir, I have several intuitive moments about all things Fulvic. As so many of you know, this started almost ten years ago when I wrote that Fulvic would be one of the single most important ingredients of the decade. I still stand by that statement. And it’s ongoing.  Research and development dictates that there will be other things.  I am not blinded by this fact, the future will bring whatever it brings, but in the here and now, my passionate belief in Fulvic shapes itself into a treat.  As these things do.

sixties lady singing holding a mike in a spot lights

Can we share something please. Since I began writing weekly, I have thrown my priority on loving and laughing.  Given there are times when all around seems so very dark, I would like to think that for a space of time we can momentarily take ourselves to another reality.  That reality is perhaps the time that we spend with each other as you read (thank you, thank you) these words.  Anyway, in full transparency, you need to know that I sing when I write.  Some of you will have probably guessed that because I often reference certain songs whilst scribing.

Being a child of the sixties, I will tell you that I have been singing ‘I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself’ (Dusty Springfield) which you can sing with me when we get to the Fulvic Acid Nail Cream paragraph. But more than that, I was also the child who stood in front of a full-length mirror, clutching a hairbrush (my substitute microphone) singing ‘Anyone Who Had A Heart’ by Cilla Black.  Actually I’m still singing it.  Without the hairbrush, but in the overall theme of who and what we are. Together. Today.

weekend read image a lady chopping vegetables with a smile on her table

Hello Saturday and hello to each of you.  This week I find myself between a rock and a hard place.  In these strangest of times we ride the waves as best we can and we try to keep it as real as we can, although heaven knows it’s good to dream.  And as I dream, a dilemma.  To do, or not to do, that is the question.  And I’ve chosen to do.  Let me explain.

It’s a fine line. Do I risk creating another monumental wait list or do I share whilst I can and face the wrath if we go out of stock sooner rather than later.  I share.  And the sharing is all about Hyaluronic Acid Capsules High Strength.  As most of you know HA came back into stock a couple of weeks ago and we had to clear the wait list before I could do this.  But I’m ready now.  And being what it is, this is a Saturday only offer and will end at midnight BST tonight (Saturday 15 August) or whilst stock lasts.
