Weekend Read

text hello august in colourful letters on yellow background

All rocked up on a Saturday morning and there is much to report this week.  I suppose we should celebrate because the biggest news is that some of our bestselling products are back in stock after a long absence.  I will go through these below, but hopefully there will be another stash of deliveries arriving this week, if all goes according to plan, but I’m not holding my breath.  As I wrote last week, I don’t think these product famines are going to ease up any time soon, so we’ll take it as it comes.  And give thanks for what we have.  Actually, I think that goes across all things in life.  Perspective is everything.

That said, I want to begin by addressing a rather alarming issue, hair loss and thinning hair.  Of course it has always been a really large concern, but with the onset of amplified stress, which is completely understandable, in and of itself it has become a concern of epic proportions.  Over the years we have always recommended Superior Hair.  We have yet to find a better alternative and I know that several of you are taking it with either Ionicell or Fulvic Acid Elixir, which is a very good thing.  By its very nature, this is not an issue that can be resolved overnight and it takes time to see results and although we are all different, we are saying it could take up to six months.  So let’s give things a helping hand.

That helping hand comes in the form of Fulvic Acid Mist.  This is the hero product of the Fulvic haircare range and it always has been.  A potent, rejuvenating and invigorating treatment for hair loss and thinning hair, it is powered by Ioniplex, the patented ingredient for Ionicell.  Working hard (very hard) to help renew cell life and the keratin function in our scalp, follicles and hair, it can be truly transformative.

Bluebells in Wepham Woods

Another Saturday morning and I continue to lurch from one drama to another.  I should probably change the name of this missive to The Life and Times of VH (and Shabir); however we’ll stay as we are at the moment, but all names and thoughts are encompassed in this thing that we are doing together.  I mean literally from one day to the next anything and everything can turn upside down and inside out.  It’s like being on a roller-coaster ride, but we’ll take it as it comes and I’ll continue reporting on the things that matter.  And the things that are not essential to life, but they make us happy anyway.  Let’s go:

Look, I can’t help it, I’m way too emotional for my own good, because yet again I feel bad.  Let me explain.  As most of you know, a couple of weeks ago I wrote about the Fulvic Acid Elixir treat.  I did it because, as I wrote at the time, I wanted the world to take Fulvic for a whole multitude of reasons, but basically because I believe it to be the core supplement we should all be taking for optimum health and wellbeing.  And then the emails.  What about Ionicell.  And the guilt hit in.  I think I was born guilty, seriously.

Orange slice symbolizing vitamin c is eating the cut out piece on orange background

Hello and good morning. I know that quite a few of you are reading this in bed with a cup of tea or coffee, which makes me smile rather a lot.  One person who won’t be in bed is Shabir.  Nope, he will soon be on the phone, I’m guessing by about 9 am, telling me yet again that I am borderline certifiable.  And after last week’s Fulvic moment, which of course went off-the-Richter-scale-bonkers, it may well be earlier today.  Except I don’t really listen.  So this week I’ve decided we will throw the headline focus on Vitamin C.  And I’m doing it with two of his formulations.  I cannot tell you the joy this will bring me.  Let’s do it:

I don’t really think that Vitamin C Serum 23% + Ferulic Acid needs any kind of introduction.  It was one of the first formulations Shabir created for our Garden of Wisdom range.  It has been our bestselling beauty product since we launched it and has been hailed here, there and everywhere as being rather fabulous.  I think the price has something to do with it.  It’s £10.  And it works.  Quite a few months ago now, Shabir decided he wanted to formulate another Vitamin C.  We called it C-Deep, Shabir wrote the article on it and it is no surprise that so many of you are now using C-Deep.  Actually rather a lot of you are using both.  Vit C 23% in the morning and C-Deep in the evening.  We like it that way.

Three slim girls in bed with towels and luxury interior

Saturday morning.  Again.  And as we gradually emerge into the unknown, because basically that’s what it is, we will continue to hold hands knowing that we must stay as close as we can.  I think it’s very easy to become complacent, but all aspects of our health and wellbeing are as critical now as they have been over the past few months.  I think the best we can do here is to continue to share the things that we love, across health and beauty, in order to support all things, including our equilibrium.  After the last Weekend Read, Shabir’s equilibrium is on the line.  Mine isn’t.  I carry on.  Regardless.  Let’s go:

There are several supplements that we consider to be extraordinarily special.  Fulvic Acid Elixir, as so many of you know, has been on my personal very special list for the longest time, perhaps it’s nine years now, and I never fail to take it daily.  It is my all and everything and I swear the potency and efficacy has kept me energized and well throughout this time.  In some ways I consider it to be my ‘health insurance’ and I know that thousands of you believe the same.  For sure, I once wrote that if I had my way, everybody would take it if they could and I’m about to help make that dream come true.

Green torn paper background with no. 10 text

It is the day of all days.  So hello 4th July and it’s Super Saturday, American Independence Day and Shabir’s birthday.  In no particular order.  And after last week’s missive where Shabir questioned my sanity regarding loading the Weekend Read with gifts and treats, I am about to do the biggest give-away in the history of VH as we launch a new brand.  Touché sweetheart, this one’s for you.  Timed to perfection.  By me.  Happy birthday.  To you.

Let’s go straight in.  It’s a haircare brand.  It’s called ‘It’s A Ten’.  They have products for every hair type and I will introduce each product range gradually over the next few months.  Known as THE ‘go-to’ haircare brand in North America, the name reflects the fact that each product combines ten benefits into an all-in-one gold standard formulation.  And gold-standard they are.  I will walk you through as we initially launch with ten products. But the first thing I want to tell you is that It’s A Ten’s meteoric rise to fame in the US was all achieved by sharing.  And we are about to do the same here.  Heaven help me.  I feel a drama coming on.  Strong.

We launch with five of the iconic Miracle Leave-In products.  I use the word ‘iconic’ because in the US the Miracle Leave-In range sells over 13 million bottles a year.  Yep, 13 million.  So what’s the big deal secret, well each Miracle Leave-In spray, by design, helps smooth hair, eliminates frizz, restores shine and also enhances the natural body in hair, dependent upon which formulation you choose.  And oh my, if we are going to shake up the haircare world, we might as well do it with this remarkable range which is like no other leave-in conditioning product in existence (thankfully).  Trust me.  And Jo Fairley.  And several million American people.

Yellow background with cross bandages

Hello. So Shabir said to me a few days ago that I was going to burn myself out.  I thought that might be interesting for each of you to watch, not least my children, as I began to muse about turning into a firework (a Roman Candle perhaps).  And the reason.  Basically because I overload these missives with gifts and treats, and he said I couldn’t possibly keep it up on an ongoing basis.  Loving a challenge, as I do, I have every intention of keeping it up as long as I can, so let’s do it.  Again.

I am so excited.  Actually beyond excited if that’s possible.  And the reason is because I am just about to launch another new product from Ross J. Barr.  As most you will have read, we launched his Fertility and Pregnancy formulations a couple of weeks ago.  At that time, I told you there was something else coming.  And they have arrived.  And they are a dream.  And there is a story.  Of course.

I’m not going to dwell, but about a year ago my back went into spasm and I couldn’t walk.  At one point I was flat-out on the floor writhing in agony and if you suffer with back pain, you will know exactly what I’m talking about.  At the first opportunity I got myself an emergency appointment with Ross where somehow or other I crawled onto his bed and he worked his magic with his acupuncture needles.  At the end of the session he slapped two patches on my back, one each side and the relief was almost immediate.  He told me that they would give pain relief for up to six hours.  Which they did, but I wanted more.  Except he only had one left, so I stole it.
