Physical Benefits Of Aromatherapy Aromatherapy has come under harsh scrutiny as a complementary treatment, yet research continues to prove the undeniable value. Topically, many solutions composed of essential oils used in aromatherapy massage are being used today in oncology units, children's specialty medical centers and for sporting injuries. Better Health Channel of Canada suggests that with the right aromatherapist, there is significant evidence linking low risk with benefits to improved health conditions and prevention. **As always, aromatherapy is not appropriate for all medical conditions. Expert advice from a qualified practitioner or licensed health professional is strongly encouraged.

Health Benefits of Aloe Vera - by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com When I say aloe vera is the most impressive medicinal herb invented by nature, I don't make that statement lightly. Of all the herbs I've ever studied -- and I've written thousands of articles on nutrition and disease prevention -- aloe vera is the most impressive herb of them all. (Garlic would be a close second.) There is nothing on this planet that offers the amazing variety of healing benefits granted by aloe vera. In a single plant, aloe vera offers potent, natural medicine that: • Halts the growth of cancer tumors. • Lowers high cholesterol. • Repairs "sludge blood" and reverses "sticky blood". • Boosts the oxygenation of your blood. • Eases inflammation and soothes arthritis pain. • Protects the body from oxidative stress. • Prevents kidney stones and protects the body from oxalates in coffee and tea. • Alkalizes the body, helping to balance overly acidic dietary habits. • Cures ulcers, IBS, Crohn's disease and other digestive disorders. • Reduces high blood pressure natural, by treating the cause, not just the symptoms. • Nourishes the body with minerals, vitamins, enzymes and glyconutrients. • Accelerates healing from physical burns and radiation burns. • Replaces dozens of first aid products, makes bandages and antibacterial sprays obsolete. • Halts colon cancer, heals the intestines and lubricates the digestive tract. • Ends constipation. • Stabilizes blood sugar and reduces triglycerides in diabetics. • Prevents and treats candida infections. • Protects the kidneys from disease. • Functions as nature's own "sports drink" for electrolyte balance, making common sports drinks obsolete. • Boosts cardiovascular performance and physical endurance. • Speeds recovery from injury or physical exertion. • Hydrates the skin, accelerates skin repair. Truly, there is nothing else that compares to the medicinal potential of aloe vera. And yet most people only know about the topical applications of aloe vera gel. They think it's only good for sunburns. In reality, aloe vera is useful for both external and internal use.
