The substances referred to as minerals are really chemical elements.
In this course you will learn the essential role of micro-organisms play in the ecological food chain and how using element as micro dose is most effective.

The term aromatherapy is a branch of herbal medicine in which oil extracted from aromatic plants are used for their medicinal properties.

Intelligent and knowledgeable Observers from the Past
From the dawn of recorded history, various manual techniques have been used for the treatment of disease. The Babylonians, the Egyptians, the Greeks, and the Romans all used various treatment baths. In Sparta, hydrotherapy became compulsory; a law was passed requiring every citizen to take cold baths frequently. Generally, baths used for treatments were either heating baths or cooling baths.
