28 April, 2016

In this newsletter I thought I would refer to an article that surfaced again the other day despite being written in 2009.

Spring Detox

7 October, 2014

I find that Spring is often the season when people feel like giving their bodies a “spring clean” like their houses. Therefore I thought I would write some thoughts about detoxes.
