We all want to enjoy life, get the best out of life and, importantly, for as long as possible.  Health and fitness have a huge influence on our capacity for that enjoyment, whether it’s just being able to meet friends for lunch, going for a walk along the coast or being able to climb Mount Everest (the oldest man to climb Mount Everest is Yuichiro Miura at 80 years old. He must have been doing something right!).


Having been challenged not only with my own health issues but also those of family and friends, I find myself, at 60 years old, probably fitter and healthier than I have ever been (despite a twisted ankle due to missing the last step of the stairs carrying laundry! You can’t control everything).


Not surprisingly, I’ve learned a lot along the way.  I have consulted with some excellent natural health practitioners for my own and my family’s health issues.  I’ve learned what’s worked for me, my family, friends and I've read and researched for myself. 


So I thought I would share what I know so far, as I am still learning all the time.  I am not a qualified health practitioner but I have discovered how to successfully navigate a number of health issues, some simple and some more challenging. My husband and I have not had a cold or cough for years and I recently got Steve through shingles reasonably comfortably with no post herpetic pain (shingles can leave you with pain for up to 2 years). I hope the information on these pages helps you to achieve better, more consistent health for longer and most importantly, increases and extends your zest for life!
