editor’s note

It’s funny how this magazine moves and changes each time a new issue is produced. Because I do so much of everything myself, I often don’t have time to step back and see what the final result will be. I am a perfect example of what everyone says you should not be in a business i.e. I work too much ‘in’ my business rather than ‘on’ my business.

Modern Uses for a Traditional Diet If you want to have strong teeth and…

the amazing benefits of fennel seeds

Fennel is a flavourful, aromatic herb indigenous to the Mediterranean region. The seeds of this herb have many powerful digestive properties and incredible benefits for infants with colic, with the most widely used species being the sweet fennel (Foeniculum vulgare.) Improve Digestion and Reduce Gas One of the biggest benefits of fennel seeds are their ability to improve your digestion and release trapped gas in your intestines. The seeds' high volatile oil content (anethole, fenchone and estragole) are the main substances that effectively clear intestinal gas.
