Knee pain is a very common complaint, and unfortunately most of the treatment options are very nearsighted.

Most with chronic knee pain try the route of injections and pain medication, unsuccessfully; then they are told that they have arthritis, as if that’s some kind of final explanation, usually implying that there is no hope to improve without surgery

History of the bath

Since the beginning of time, the art of bathing in water has been essential to one’s good health and peace of mind. As early as the third century, bathing emporiums quickly became the fashion.

Difference between Organic and Non-Organic Minerals

Minerals in plants are best but we can still assimilate a tiny amount of minerals found in water and other sources.

You can absorb it to a degree but when we are talking about efficiency, it’s better when it’s attached (chelated) to other molecules. So overall, you can absorb only a tiny amount of the minerals in the water you drink, so it’s better to plan getting them from food instead!

Our Inherent Recuperative Powers

Think about it, what if you had a partner you lived with.  Things were going fine for a while, no problems.  Then suddenly they decide not to communicate with you.  Oh, but you love them, I mean really love them, so you let some time go by.

Three months goes by, you are concerned but you do not want to crowd; more time goes by.  Six months later, they decide to communicate with you.  They say to you, “ok we can communicate, but only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 7 to 8:30pm”, because that is all the time their schedule will allow.  Continue reading Our Inherent Recuperative Powers
