I really do love laughing so much that I’ve even been known to do it on stage which is very, very naughty of me. Mind you it’s amazing what you can get away with! So of course I had to do a bit of research and then do an article on it for Natural Health Magazine. The good news is …

Today we are looking at health from a different perspective. From inside our mouths to be specific. Yup that’s right.

Get back In Sync

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition, Health 1 Comment

The In-Sync Diet may seem like a regular diet book, but that’s actually not the case. There’s so much more to a healthy weight and a healthy body and mind, than what we eat. Our bodies are made up of incredibly complex systems and they are all connected. If one part is out of sync, it affects all the other …
