A sensitive subject for us girls, but worth a mention, as we've seen great results recently treating not only menstrual conditions, but also the intimate area that is susceptible to vaginal dermatitis.

One of the four basic ideas within Eastern medicine is that each human being is a unified whole of body, mind and spirit.

Pigmentation and acne: Beyond skin deep…

Acne, eczema, and dermatitis are similar in that they all indicate a deeper blockage in the body's natural system. What appears at the skin's surface is always an indication of something working less efficiently [...]

Baldness: There are easier ways…

It seems that hair loss is a subject of concern, even for the most alpha men I know, especially when that receding hairline makes an appearance in their twenties. I personally quite like a shaved head (both on men and women) but if you want to tackle the root of the problem (ha ha) and [...]

Why I prefer no-tox…

I've been feeling the pressure for a while. Rushing into my forties with the inevitable lines and wrinkles of a life well lived starting to show.
