THANKS FOR YOUR FEEDBACK ON...
GIRLFRIEND FROM HELL
Best Health’s latest issue featured a moving essay about living with borderline personality disorder. The author’s struggles felt like mine. After reading, a funny thing happened: I noticed that I wasn’t hiding anymore. I was reaching out to friends for help. I found the courage to show my partner the article. I even registered for therapy, and I ordered the workbook your journalist recommended.
I just devoured the “Girlfriend from Hell” article, in my latest issue of
Best Health. The author literally had me riveted with her own story, and did a beautiful job weaving in facts and experts. I was especially struck by her paragraph on compassion fatigue. I, for one, feel a lot of compassion — and admiration for her strength and honesty, too.
I love the Canadian content and knowing that I can get the featured products in Canada. I specifically loved the article answering burning questions about SPF. These were some of the same questions I had been asking myself.
Thank you Best Health for a super summer issue packed with great ideas, info and recipes. We made the lamb burgers, cider can chicken and took your advice to make our own popsicles on Canada Day, and can I just say THANK YOU for the crowdpleasing recipes!
I’m new to Best Health but already hooked! In my late thirties, I fought a seven-year battle with anorexia nervosa. Your article in the June/ July issue tackles the subject of eating disorders with clarity and highlights key steps to wellness. Bravo!
The June/July issue had an excellent article about eating disorders. We have a close family friend that suffers from anorexia and binge eating. It was interesting to learn how it can stem from depression and anxiety and can occur at any age. The article gave some wonderful information, coping strategies and support networks.
Keep up the good work.

I just picked up my first copy of Best
Health. I am impressed with the relevant articles for Canadians. The article on fibromyalgia is especially important to me. As a woman that was diagnosed 20+ years ago I had to deal with friends, family and medical professionals thinking I was nuts, a hypochondriac, some even said I wanted to be sick. The article validates what I have lived with for years. Fortunately, I’ve been in remission for 8+ years and never happier.
WELL, JUST EVERYTHING
I loved your June/July issue — best one yet! My best friend and I both have wrestled with bouts of IBS, and I passed on the information to her about lifestyle changes. In the food section, I was thrilled to see a recipe for lamb burgers — lamb is one of my favourite proteins but I can’t often afford the expensive roasts, so a ground lamb burger is right up our taste and budget alley. I also intend to check out the SculpSure treatment, as despite decades of healthy living and fitness regimes, I’m facing some upper abdomen flab that
I’d prefer to see gone.
