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.

SPF QUES­TIONS

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.

OUR RECIPES

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!

EAT­ING DIS­OR­DERS

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!

JOY LUSK

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.

FIBROMYALAGIA

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.
