Welcome to the November/December issue of Rude Health, the official magazine of the Irish Association of Health Stores. In this issue we launch our first-ever Rude Health Awards where you get the chance to vote for your favourite products and win a fabulous trip to Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa. There’s a look at women’s health through the years, how to help a migraine, keep your ticker healthy and the importance of relaxation. Our celebrity interview is with recently retired Irish sprint hurdler Derval O’Rourke. And of course we are looking forward to the festive season with meat-free recipes and what’s on offer in your local health store. Plus there’s lots more. Enjoy, and look out for the January/February issue in late December.
