Shanti Som – Living the best life

Continuing our series on wholesome food from the Shanti Som kitchen we dropped in one evening to try the menu by their talented new chef Gemma Hammond. Shanti Som opened its doors as a boutique hotel, spa and detox centre in the picturesque woods near Monda last summer, and has been building a reputation as a great place to go for meals, therapies, weekend breaks and detox retreats over the past few months. We also asked founder Kezia Jacobsen for some tips on good living … Continue reading

Another spark of light

The Spark was created by John Dawson in 1992, a big idea that sprung from personal tragedy, and took root in the West Country.

BBC Bristol described the Spark as “the best of the alternative West”, a compliment that has been proudly stuck on the cover ever since. From a small office, with a tiny core team and a slew of writers orbiting remotely, the … Continue reading

Many core problems of “heart disease” do not lie in the heart itself but stem from the lack of blood flow to the heart. This is also the case with strokes, that stem … Continue reading
