Taking care of you and yours – naturally
The growing trend towards safe natural solutions to health problems is highlighted by the 25% increase in attendance at last year’s Rude Health Show says Alan McGrath, Chairperson of the Irish Association of Health Stores, sponsors of this hugely successful annual natural health exhibition.
Rude Health returns to the RDS on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September, with Ireland’s biggest health and wellbeing event offering visitors a multitude of natural ways to look after the health and lifestyles of themselves and their families.
“With such a huge increase in attendance at Rude Health last year, it was clear that stress, and sleeping problems were major concerns of people attending the show and that more people than ever are looking for safe alternative solutions”, he said.
Top speakers this year include the always hugely popular Patrick Holford, Dr. Marilyn Glenville, Jan de Vries, Professor Jane Plant, holistic therapist Karen Ward, Bernadette Bohan and many others.
More than 200 exhibitors will be offering visitors advice on natural health solutions, including the use of vitamins, herbs and homeopathy; there will be tastings and cookery demonstrations using delicious organic ingredients; and visitors can experience mini sessions in aromatherapy, shiatsu, reflexology and many more therapies.
““People are also worried about hospital bugs and doctors’ bills so they are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of taking charge of their own health and wellbeing and that of their families, thus preventing illness. Rude Health offers people the opportunity to reassess their own health and wellbeing within their own homes,”said Alan McGrath.
“It is also an opportunity for us to remind people that they can come into any of our IAHS stores and talk to highly trained and qualified staff who can give them excellent advice on improving their health and lifestyles very naturally and safely.”
There are over 100 IAHS member stores nationwide, all of which have met specific training standards. In London earlier this year, the Health Food Institute, which organises professional exams for stores in the UK and Ireland, awarded 2 of their 3 top examination prizes to Irish retailers.
“Irish retailers have also been awarded fellowships for their commitment and contribution to the health trade”, said the IAHS chairperson.
“Health stores play a key part in frontline and primary healthcare. By helping hundreds of thousands of customers deal with minor self limiting ailments and the promotion of dietary and lifestyle changes for optimal health, health stores have a key role and a unique position in reducing the pressure on our public healthcare system, thus relieving pressure on already hard pressed GP services and A&E departments.”
There has never been a better time to take charge of your own health
and wellbeing and that of your family. So why not join us at Rude Health this year and see what we can do to help you – naturally.
