HEAL­ING WORDS

I had just re­turned home from a 3.5-hour round trip to see natur­opath An­thia Koul­louros when I came across your ar­ti­cle about her in the April is­sue. Be­fore find­ing An­thia a year ago, I was floun­der­ing around in the dark­ness of mis­in­for­ma­tion and med­i­cal ig­no­rance in the treat­ment of my au­toim­mune dis­ease. That was when I was blessed to find her. An­thia’s wealth of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence, com­bined with her nur­tur­ing ap­proach, set me on my road to good health. When I walked out of my con­sul­ta­tion I was armed with the re­sources I needed and the feel­ing that I was ready to face the chal­lenges ahead. Fast for­ward and I’m in con­trol of my health (most of the time at least!) and filled with grat­i­tude. An­thia re­ally is ful­fill­ing her dream to heal the world. Jen­nifer Hughes, TOWRADGI, NSW

MO­MENTS TO SHARE

A mother found north and a daugh­ter found south, share their love of gar­dens, de­sign and bak­ing — all things cap­tured in their sub­scrip­tion to Coun­try Style. A mother takes a mo­ment to sit on the ve­ran­dah with a freshly brewed pot of English break­fast and the mag­a­zine, draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion to cre­ate and rein­vent. To the south, a daugh­ter sits un­der the back tree with her labrador at her feet, pe­rus­ing the pages of sto­ries as she watches her tod­dler feed and chat to the chooks. Through the ups and downs of life, Coun­try Style pro­vides re­lax­ation and in­spires us to cre­ate and to dream. Sarah Ged­des, LATHAM, ACT

PAGES OF IN­SPI­RA­TION

I have been a fol­lower of Coun­try Style for years. When my four chil­dren were small and in­dul­gences — whether they be whole­some food, fur­ni­ture or week­end es­capes — were dic­tated by a bud­get, Coun­try Style was the mag­a­zine that al­ways in­spired me. To­day with grown chil­dren and seven grand­chil­dren I am still pass­ing on skills and ideas from my favourite pub­li­ca­tion so thank you to all those who con­tinue to con­trib­ute their sto­ries and ideas, and for shar­ing chap­ters in their own lives with us all. Caro­line Vo­gel, MOSSY POINT, NSW

A BLOKE’S PER­SPEC­TIVE

My wife has bought Coun­try Style for some time. For years I re­garded it as too gir­lie, al­though the gar­den fea­tures and food at­tracted my gaze. Right now, I have time on my hands. We are man­ag­ing my wife’s breast cancer di­ag­no­sis and into the ra­dio­ther­apy phase, which brings us to Ade­laide from our home on the Yorke Penin­sula. Af­ter the treat­ment each day, there are hours of free time... that’s when I dis­cov­ered the real in­sides of Coun­try Style. There are in­ter­est­ing ar­ti­cles and pages of fas­ci­nat­ing photographs. In the Fe­bru­ary is­sue, the Close Knit story grabbed me; happy peo­ple in the Aussie coun­try­side, do­ing what gen­er­a­tions of their fam­ily have done. And now, adding Love Merino. Did my heart good to read such a good news story, when so much other news we are fed is not pos­i­tive. Mo­ti­vated now, I am pag­ing through the other edi­tions we have with us. My bloke’s per­cep­tion has ex­panded to ac­cept some­thing new. And all the time, it was me who was miss­ing out. There’s go­ing to be some fierce com­pe­ti­tion when the next CS ar­rives at home. Carl Pe­ter­ing, MOONTA, SA
