hello and welcome to a new focus on health this season

Working in the world of wellbeing for over 30 years, I’m truly delighted to be highlighting so many vital (and life-changing) health issues in this edition. Moving into our middle years is a crucial time to re-evaluate life, on every level. We’re aware of key health concerns that affect so many of us, notably osteoporosis, stress overload and breast cancer, and I’m pleased to focus on these important topics with some first-rate new research and sound advice from world-class leading experts. We reveal the truth about stress and discover how the ‘cortisol steal’ affects wellbeing. I’ve taken an in-depth look at osteoporosis and its less-well-known precursor, osteopenia. And, at a time of year that marks both World Osteoporosis Day and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we have an exclusive interview with leading…

Laugh it off Keep track of more ways to live well, with the latest news and views from the world of Liz Earle Wellbeing. LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE, even if it’s not genuine. Researchers have found that adding simulated laughter into an exercise programme improves mental health and wellbeing. Faking it helps just as much as the real thing, because the body responds as if it’s real, giving us all the physiological and psychological benefits of a real laugh. Laughter Yoga is actually a thing – with 5,000 clubs worldwide. It’s especially popular with those coping with chronic pain, as well as low moods. Even smiling has been proven to create positive cellular changes in the body. laughteryoga.co.uk Skipping a few meals a week increases lifespan. Eating 15 per cent fewer calories…

the beauty edit eco–beauty

Waste not, want not Some forward-thinking brands are tackling the P-word by packaging their wares in post-consumer recycled plastics. For a body wash that is green and luxurious in equal measure, we like Dr Hauschka Shower Cream. This gentle lemongrass-enriched cleanser is housed primarily in repurposed plastic milk cartons. To keep skin soft and supple into the cooler months, we’ll be following up with REN Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Anti-Fatigue Body Cream. The 100 per cent recycled bottle contains 20 per cent plastic recovered from our oceans. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more exciting green innovations from REN, who have pledged to be zero waste by 2021.

the ilapothecary spa

It’s not often you discover a hidden wellbeing gem in the heart of London, but that’s the feeling as you step through the doors of Ilapothecary, a fabulous find tucked amid the cafés and antique shops of Kensington Church Street. Unlike most beauty spas, the main reason for a visit here is to de-stress, unwind and nurture both mind and body. Ilapothecary is the younger, less expensive sister of Ila Spa, both founded by Denise Leicester, a renowned beauty specialist with a background in natural healing, who brings healing principles to a range of signature treatments, based on Eastern medicine and naturopathic principles. Denise’s expertise taps into a new mood of beauty products that do far more than simply look after your skin. In the stylish grey wood consultation area, we spent…

essential elderberries

Smaller than a tree but larger than a shrub, the elder is known by botanists and gardening enthusiasts as Sambucus nigra. The English name – elder – has nothing to do with age, but derives from the Anglo Saxon æld (meaning fire), because the hollow stems of the branches were traditionally used as bellows. It can be recognised by the small white elderflowers that bloom in late spring/early summer, and – at this time of year – by the bunches of blue-black elderberries ripening in their place. Elderberries have long been relied upon to treat a variety of health and wellbeing ailments. We uncover this healing history and investigate modern-day studies that support its versatile use. SKIN SMOOTHER Elderberries are bursting with skin-friendly plant nutrients, including vitamin A. This vital vitamin is…
