A Word From The Editor

Welcome to the September/October issue of Rude Health, the official magazine of the Irish Association of Health Stores. In this issue we mark the end of summer by looking at ways to keep our bodies in tip-top condition as the nights get longer – including back-to-school children’s nutrition advice, the best foods for maintaining energy, how to boost immunity and deal with common winter elements naturally. You can read about how kinesiology changed a young girl’s life for the better and find out about Dublin musician Imelda May’s healthy vegetarian life. Plus there’s lots more. Enjoy, and look out for the November/December issue in late October.
