  1. I am very pleased to see this column. There are so many myths believed in St Lucia that need to be corrected. Just because your Grandmother said it... doesn't make it true.
    Some examples... the belief that you get a cold in the rain...colds are a virus and they don't fall from the sky.
    Getting arthritis if if you put warm feet in cold water or on cool floor.
    Not being able to drink hot and cold together.
    That is only a few.... I could go on forever!
    Health facts and education on dealing with high blood pressure and diabetics....other than bush medicine.
