CBD oil is a Natural Medicine found in the Cannabis plant. No one can get “high” on it. But it is an effective medicine for multiple issues as well as for longevity. CBD regenerates the human body and brain to be more youthful. It changes lives, and the cities and states who embrace it may experience significant growth and a revitalized economy. But, as the popularity of the Cannabis plant has grown over the past decade, the pharmaceutical industry has been busy behind the scenes.

Focus your Jing on creating positive relationships and a beautiful environment for yourself…and others on […]

THE NEW SCIENCE OF FASTING AS NATURAL MEDICINE
FASTING…hmmmm. That sounds like deprivation, hunger and muscle wasting, not a powerful, natural and holistic medicine approach. But, of all the wonderful music, art, science, and other contributions to our world which have come from Italy, I never expected to be fascinated by the work of a scientist and researcher (bio gerontologist and cell biologist) “known for his studies on the role of starvation and nutrient response genes on cellular protection, aging and diseases, and for proposing that longevity is regulated by similar genes […]
