My name is Nicole Shay. I am a freelance writer with a specific interest in matters of the mind, including mental illness, thought patterns and their effect upon the body. I also love natural health and all things involving a healthy lifestyle. I have studied within these areas for many years. The focus of this blog will be Salus ( the Latin word for health), for the mind and body. You can not separate the two, they are intricately intertwined. Please feel free to contact me at nicoleshaywriting@hotmail.com with any questions or comments you may have. Thanks for stopping by!
