A Word From The Editor
Welcome to the November/December issue of Rude Health, the official magazine of the Irish Association of Health Stores. We chat to well-known Irish author Cathy Kelly about her healthy eating habits, find out how best to help embarrassing health conditions, and our focus is on women’s health from teens to retirement. Plus, the benefits of oils and how best to use them, and how to indulge in some natural winter pampering. In this issue we also turn our attention to the festive season and find out the best Christmas gifts available in your local health store. Plus all our regular pages and the launch of the 2015 Rude Health Awards – your chance to vote for your favourite products and win a fabulous hotel stay. Don’t forget, we want to know what you think of Rude Health and would love to hear from you on Twitter or Facebook. Enjoy, and look out for the January/February issue in early January.
