Positive Health PH Online Issue 246, made up of an apparently eclectic mix of editorial features demonstrates, on further reflection, how unified is Body / Mind / Spirit. 7 Reflections on Art and Touch by bodyworker and musician David Lauterstein, with mentions of including Joe Williams, Gustav Mahler, Martin Buber, Williams Blake and Benjamin Franklin, quintessentially merges the realms of music and touch “our instruments, these miraculous hands, and the ultimate wild medium, this living, naturally self-transcending human who is our client - this is the struggle that makes us therapists grimace and delight.”

The exquisitely crafted documentary about Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials Trilogy Imagine: Philip Pullman: Angels and Daemons aired on BBC1 on Monday 5 March 2018 provided a glimpse of this writer’s genius in inventing a fantasy Oxford, with brilliant literary devices about stepping stones to other worlds, people possessing their own animal as a type of persona / animus called a daemon, as well as an elite revolutionary group battling the Magisteria - holders of the Church’s power and authority. Philip Pullman, inspired by poets including Milton - Paradise Lost - and William Blake – Songs of Innocence - over his long and hard working life where he honed his story-telling craft as a schoolteacher, was able to exert a powerful influence through his fantastical books which vividly stimulate the imagination yet never satiate our permanent yearning for wonderful stories

We now publish Positive Health PH Online Issue 244 in February 2018. That we have been publishing PH Online for some 24 years is mind-boggling to me, considering that we started from our kitchen back in 1994, following setting up the Bristol Cancer Help Centre - BCHC [now Penny Brohn Centre] Nutrition and Cancer Database after BCHC was almost shut down over the tabloid and media scandal caused by erroneous research published

I was incredulous to hear on the news this week – Sept 2017 -  results of a five-year study of patients which reported that cyberchondria -  people researching health symptoms online and seeking medical attention - were “fuelling an epidemic of health anxiety”; psychiatrists suggested these “cases” should be offered counselling.

Editorials 238 Print Email

Issue 238 of Positive Health PH Online features Lyme Disease as the cover story, cases of which are soaring / exploding in the UK and USA as well as articles across a wide spectrum of subjects, including mental / spiritual health, eczema, nutritional, metabolic and environmental issues, and physical, exercise, sleep and cycling. The wide selection of subjects embracing divergent points of view has been a constant rationale for PH Online, postulating that diversity rather than fixed opinions / solutions encourage more questioning of ‘authority’ and ‘experts’, who have, as we have all seen, not yet arrived at the correct answers to health problems.
