Inspired by Isabella
[Regarding “Isabella Rossellini Tackles the Golden Years on the Silver Screen,” in our March issue:] Thank you so much for the latest on what Isabella Rossellini is up to. I always loved her in movies and as a Lancome model. It’s so refreshing to read about someone so real and down to earth. She’s smart, gorgeous and an inspiration.

Avoiding Food Poisoning
In “Unwelcome Table Guests” (March), we learned that microbes such as E. coli sicken millions of Americans each year. On our blog at www.energytimes.com, we asked what steps our readers take to ensure food safety; this is one reader’s response.
I’ve been washing all produce and chicken for about 10 years; I now use a veggie wash for produce. I try to eat local and organic as much as possible.
Easing Eczema Naturally
[Regarding the Life Coach column in our March issue, which dealt with eczema:] I have suffered from eczema for years. Recently a practitioner suggested I try using L-glutamine and [a probiotic supplement], and my eczema has calmed down immensely. I write because this has been a miracle for me.
We’re glad you found something that works for you. Doris Day, MD, of New York, and Sonia Badreshia-Bansal, MD, of Danville, California, offered other recommendations in the Life Coach column.
First, don’t over-wash your hands, which is hard on the skin, and do use hand cream. Day suggests soaking your hands for 5-7 minutes in two cups of lukewarm water, two tablespoons of olive oil and two tablespoons honey; pat dry. Badreshia-Bansal suggests applying the olive oil (or almond oil) after showering to lock in moisture and wearing cotton gloves at night.
