42 Acres: a centre for transformation

Sometimes places appear in your path that very quickly begin to feel like a second home and 42 Acres, nestled in a quiet valley in the rolling hills of Somerset, is one of them. From the minute I first stepped eager foot through the door for a yoga and raw food retreat […]

Juice cleansing: reset your body and soul

Throughout my nutritional studies and holistic wellness journey, I have always been a devoted smoothie drinker and preferred the wholefood (and chuck anything in) benefits they offer us over cold-pressed juices that leave cellulose and fibre behind.
