Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

True beauty comes from within  >   One of our clients asked us to reproduce a Beauty Tips mantra she repeats every morning. Some may find the following rather quaint, but hopefully others will find it inspirational and charming. Either way, if it makes you smile – and that is the most beautiful curve on a […]

Cancer – let your faith be bigger than your fear

She believed she could so she did  >  There is nothing new in the idea that that what we think and feel can affect our well-being.

Unprotected sex beats depression

The hidden benefits of semen >  Today’s shock news is that tight jeans and fluffy hoods endanger your health. Or did you know that you can buy underwear that gives you electric shocks to banish bed sores? It is hard to read any newspaper and not find similar miracle cures, ridiculous health products or balmy medical research […]

The vast majority spend more than eight hours a day on their iPhones, laptops […]

Smile – you have lovely white teeth

Healthy root to white teeth >   A lady phoned a Tonic therapist to ask how to keep her teeth white! We pointed out that we give neither medical nor cosmetic advice. Her reply was surprising – like lipstick, “white teeth can do wonders for a woman’s self prestige and respect” … “they make an […]
