Recent medical findings for a healthier body

Interesting slices of life

All the latest in environmental issues

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) • Bergamot is a herbal supplement that has been called a “natural statin” because of its cholesterol-lowering properties, but it can help with many health conditions, from metabolic syndrome to stress.

Açai berries • Native to Brazil, açai berries pack an antioxidant punch that yields an array of health benefits.

Dive in • The intention is to escape, immerse and energise. What ultimately takes place is a deep reconnection and transcendence of fear during Maruia Hot Springs’ first-ever wellness retreat.

Beauty from the inside out • Janet Hayward, co-founder of online beauty resource BEAUTY DIRECTORY and author of multiple books on natural beauty and health, has had a long and rewarding career in media. On the launch of her very own range of natural beauty oils, Ipsum, we chat to Hayward about how to cultivate beauty from the inside out.

WellBeing gives space to the creative souls in our community

Black magic • Charcoal is the new black. Try this charred champ in body and beauty care creations for a cleansing and whitening winner.

Going green underfoot • Since the earliest homes, when what lay underfoot was most likely earth strewn with straw, options for flooring have exploded. Meanwhile, understanding what’s in a flooring product seems to require a chemistry degree plus the doggedness of a super-sleuth.

Secret kids’ business • Secrets are inevitable, but how do you know which secrets are good or bad for kids? We navigate the rocky waters of secret keeping and explore how to negotiate this delicate dance with your children.

Super antioxidant foods • Antioxidants defend against cell-damaging free radicals, which increase your risk of disease and premature ageing. Including a variety of antioxidant-rich foods in your diet is one of the best ways to optimise health and longevity.

Life in the slow lane • Sometimes a breakdown is necessary for a breakthrough, and for author and podcaster Brooke McAlary this came in the form of realising that taking the path of less is where the journey to a more fulfilling life starts.

Yoga to unlock your creativity • By balancing your svadhistana chakra through yoga postures and stilling the mind through meditation and breath control, you can harness your awareness and invite clarity into your consciousness which, as a result, unlocks your creativity.

Ignite your imagination • Create the life you want from within by harnessing the power of your imagination.

Wild thing • By aligning with the rhythms of nature and connecting to its wisdom, you can channel your inner wild thing in the tameness of suburbia.

The power of pleasure • If you’re having them, you’re loving them, but you may not realise the huge range of health benefits orgasms bring.
