We now publish Positive Health PH Online Issue 244 in February 2018. That we have been publishing PH Online for some 24 years is mind-boggling to me, considering that we started from our kitchen back in 1994, following setting up the Bristol Cancer Help Centre - BCHC [now Penny Brohn Centre] Nutrition and Cancer Database after BCHC was almost shut down over the tabloid and media scandal caused by erroneous research published

In the Editorial for Issue 248 I reported on the shocking, premature death (age 46) of my partner’s youngest daughter Kate on 16 June, within two weeks of diagnosis, admission to UCL and commencement of chemotherapy treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

Positive Health PH Online Issue 246, made up of an apparently eclectic mix of editorial features demonstrates, on further reflection, how unified is Body / Mind / Spirit. 7 Reflections on Art and Touch by bodyworker and musician David Lauterstein, with mentions of including Joe Williams, Gustav Mahler, Martin Buber, Williams Blake and Benjamin Franklin, quintessentially merges the realms of music and touch “our instruments, these miraculous hands, and the ultimate wild medium, this living, naturally self-transcending human who is our client - this is the struggle that makes us therapists grimace and delight.”

The exquisitely crafted documentary about Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials Trilogy Imagine: Philip Pullman: Angels and Daemons aired on BBC1 on Monday 5 March 2018 provided a glimpse of this writer’s genius in inventing a fantasy Oxford, with brilliant literary devices about stepping stones to other worlds, people possessing their own animal as a type of persona / animus called a daemon, as well as an elite revolutionary group battling the Magisteria - holders of the Church’s power and authority. Philip Pullman, inspired by poets including Milton - Paradise Lost - and William Blake – Songs of Innocence - over his long and hard working life where he honed his story-telling craft as a schoolteacher, was able to exert a powerful influence through his fantastical books which vividly stimulate the imagination yet never satiate our permanent yearning for wonderful stories
