When I read Bill's first post I was thrilled to see someone else who swears by the hand harvested grey Celtic sea salt and avoids trans fats. We can do so much to help ourselves stay healthy and being switched on to good nutrition is a must. We definitely are what we eat!

I've only been in NZ for a few months from Australia and I'm looking forward to learning more from Bill.biggrin

Thanks Beauty, I'll do that. I feel a long way from family and friends and I'd like to meet some Kiwis and join in social activities.

Thanks Bill. Youre a bloody beauty.

This is the first time I have even looked in on this thread because I don't have no problem with my feet. But I can assure you all, that the advice that Bill has been giving is abso-bloody-luty spot on.

Hi Shea. I've sent you a friend request. You can also email me on kaymaher@gmail.com and I will put you in touch with some people in your area so you can get socializing biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

A lot of the groups (mainly female) meet frequently for coffee or lunch & socializing during the week as we are retired or semi retired. We also organise some weekend activities too because many have partners who can come along and there are also a number of younger members who like yourself are still working.

This Saturday 20th, a group are going to the Botanical Gardens which are East Auckland (maybe Sth East) and there'll be quite a few people who live South and south east as well as many from other parts of Auckland.

cheers and hope to meet up with you one of these days biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Yes folks; there are things we know and there are things that we don't know, but there are a heck of a lot of things that we don't know we don't know! When we are told that something is not good for us most of us say OK I won't touch that! I like to investigate and find out WHY!
For the last eight years I have seached the net on everything to do with health and what I have found is that there is a huge amount of miss-information out there designed to throw us of the track and get us into the "sickness" industry. From my research I have cured myself of all the problems that were besetting me as I age. Where I had back pains, winter flu, loss of hair and a whole lot of other age related problems they no longer exist! Most of my friends think I'm off my trolly but hey! they are sick with just about everything you can name, I will be 76 in May and feel GREAT. How do I do it? I'm glad you asked that! Firstly I tought myself to use this computer, then I learned how to sort out who is telling the truth and who is not, a good way to do that is to "follow the money" have a look at NaturalNews.com Mike Adams, a doctor who literaly "saved my life" I bought a "vitamizer" (blender) and have fresh vegetable "smoothies" every day. Did you know that most of our fresh vegies have enzymes in them to help us digest them but when we cook them we destroy them, by having fresh greens as a drink before meals I get the full value from any food that I eat. Keep right away from anything that is "processed". Read my other threads and my article "Your Health your Responsibility" for the rest! Why would a doctor tell you any of this? Do turkeys vote for an early Christmas?

Hi Elvis
My experience with painful feet centres around exercise which you probably don't want to hear! But exercise improves circulation, increases mobility and very often does wonders. It does not have to be strenuous outdoor exercise. If you look on the website about an inflatable exerciser called an aircycle you will see it is so easy and comfortable to use while sitting doing other things, like watching TV, or reading. For very little cost you may find this relieves pain. It really can change your life to get relief. I have no hesitation in recommending this aircycle exerciser. So soft on feet and works wonders.
