Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?

Yes, it’s really been 20 years. 

We can vaguely remember when the microbiome wasn’t dominating research news, when nutrigenomics was a new word, when we knew about leaky gut but not leaky brain, SIBO was barely recognised – and of course COVID hadn’t been “invented”.

Complementary and alternative medicine has become integrated healthcare, nutritional therapy and even functional medicine are almost sounding old-fashioned alongside the buzzwords of personalised lifestyle and precision medicine.

But all of our professions have flourished and become more and more professional, to the point where pharma-dominated orthodox medicine is looking to us for answers.

Even our food has changed – most of us are gluten-free now as a matter of course.

And supplements have got more and more sophisticated – and our longest-serving practitioner suppliers have changed almost beyond recognition. Read our birthday co-celebration special (pages 24-29) and you’ll be amazed at the lengths our industry stalwarts
go to in order to be of service. 

There are big thankyous all around – to us from our advertisers, and from them to us –
and of course to you our readers, who keep the whole thing going.

Join us live on June 25
