‘I’m interested in those offensive and defensive moves that extend the glory of middle age for as long as possible; the daily choices that extend healthspan, the length of time you feel awesome and healthy, rather than tired, burned out, inflamed, and infirmed. I’m not interested in increasing longevity if it means that I am (or you are) lying in a hospital with multiple organ failure, or otherwise unable to hang out with the grandkids or great-grandkids or enjoy a fine glass of wine.’

Hello and thanks for visiting!

I’m Lindsay – natural health and wellness enthusiast, baby boomer, Scot, former Holistic Aromatherapist.

I’ve been passionate about natural health since my student days (and those are loooooong behind me!) I’ve read so many books and articles and listened to so many podcasts that I should be positively glowing with health and vitality by now. Trouble is ‘knowing’ and ‘doing’ are not exactly the same thing, and now, squarely in middle age, I really want to get my act together! So this here blog is my spur to action – I’m sharing my experiences and experiments in all things ‘natural health and wellness’ with you, in the hope that you will keep me accountable and on the straight and narrow. Well, someone’s got to! Have we got a deal?

Even better, why not join me? Let’s make healthier lifestyle choices together, inspire and encourage each other, and support each other when the going gets tough. I’ll tell you how it’s going for me, and I’d love to hear how it’s going for you.

To our good health and long lives
