    Some very good points but as always, there must be peer-reviewed scientific studies to back up any statements.

    I started my book in Jan’10 & find it fascinating. It keeps me motivated & the Spiritual insight forms my basis in morning before work. The journal gets shared with everyone in the office who cares to listen.

  6. Carol Govender Says:

    Thank you Aldyth & Sally-Ann this journal is just all you need to know on health issues. I am presently on the 23rd week Vitamins. I have not enjoyed another journal as much as I have done this one. It has contributed to my physical and spiritual health in an amazing way. I have lost 5kg since starting the journal and now go to gym at least 3 times a week. I feel amazing. I have changed how we do food in our home. I recommend that every women use your journal a least once in their lives.

    Love & regards
