'Which?' is a British consumer organisation that tests products and services.
If your product or service receives a 'Which?' Best Buy accolade, it will have done so against all the best competition.
Being a Best Buy means that, taking a huge range of factors into account, Which? judges your product or service is a 'Best Buy'.
For gas and electricity, home phone, mobile phone and broadband, we must have saved many thousands of pounds since 2002 compared to what we would have paid other providers.
How? We've used a CLUB which is free to join and regularly features in Which? BEST BUY lists. Click HERE to watch a video about it and to find out more.
If you have any questions, give Jonathan a ring: 07950-012501.

The nutritional supplements we like have kept us in pretty good health – only one cold in 7 years as compared to about 3 colds annually before starting them.
They have received considerable favourable scientific research published in peer-reviewed journals over many years.
They aren’t the cheapest on the market but their standards are high. The products are almost entirely made from natural foods from which the water and fibre has been removed.
They are then ‘freeze-dried’ to retain the enzymes, minerals and vitamins in the original proportions. This makes them not only very nutritious but also easily accepted and absorbed by your body, ie ‘bio-available’.
Another of these useful links is Bentonite clay which has many qualities. I don't think the ancient Chinese had it, but they had other substances used in herbal medicine that did something similar. However, to get those, you need to see a practitioner.
Here's a product that purports to do all sorts of things, including helping to cleanse and detox. I regard it as being cooling in nature so you might also need to take ginger tea to warm your Spleen and so compensate for the cooling action of the clay.
Buy it here: Bentonite Clay

Tai Chi stretches and tests you. Benefits come quickly for many, though for the deepest benefits you probably need to practise for many years.
There are many kinds of martial arts.
For information and training in both Tai Chi and Martial Arts in Edinburgh, contact the Jamie Robson academy.
Almost everyone should exercise.
Our bodies have evolved over the last three-quarters of a million years during which there was no sign of a book until 500 years ago, a radio until 80 years ago and a TV with remote until - what? - 40 years ago.
And how many humans spent most of their days sitting at desks until a few hundreds years ago? Not many! Most of us worked our butts off - physically.
Also, almost all of us had to walk or work our bodies to earn or find food and make shelter for ourselves. It's not long since someone had to carry water daily. In many countries this still goes on.
Our bodies don't stay well if we don't exercise them.
So ... what's good exercise?

If you live in the Edinburgh area of Scotland, where the author of this site (and of the books described below) works, click on Edinburgh Acupuncturist.
If you live elsewhere, click on BAcC.
All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)
('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)
If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.
You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.
And if you think it was terrible?
Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)
Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.
Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!
Four Reviews so far. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!
By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
NB You can also order 'Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress' from your bookseller.
