Marijuana is used, for different purposes (recreational or medicinal) and by people of all ages. This article is a fundamental outline of the most popular medicinal uses for the green plant.

Aside from Christmas and Chanukah, which yields the most fresh cut flowers and plants for all floral outlets in the United States, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and Easter/Passover are the top holidays where people buy and indulge in beautiful arrangements for others or themselves. It is very important to know that the quality (not just how colorful and fragrant the floral arrangements are) of the flowers, how they are grown and treated prior to selling, is very important to the health of the people who receive the flowers (be it yourself, or for the people you care for).

Learning About Reiki: Fundamentals 101

What is an Overview of Reiki?

Reiki was developed in 1922 in Japan by Mikao Usui. Reiki is the awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and affects the quality of a person’s health.

Bursting Your Bubble. Chewing Gum Dangers

Some experts argue that this is the most toxic substance in the supermarkets today. Most everyone has tried it and many even have an addiction to it. I am referring to chewing gum. And since its commercial sale debut in 1848 by John Curtis in the state of Maine, its popularity has exploded, and with that, the way the chewing gum was manufactured. The ancient Greeks and Mayans chewed resin and sap gums made from trees, which were very natural. Cut to modern day flavors which are made from synthetic materials that are not so great for the mouth, digestive system and body, such as, aspartame, BHT (to maintain freshness and increase shelf life), titanium dioxide, calcium casein peptone-calcium phosphate, plastics, elastics and fillers (which are part of the gum base) and other preservatives and artificial colors/flavors. Let’s learn a few reasons why some may say chewing gum, even the ones “4 out of 5 dentists recommend chewing to prevent cavities,” is not so healthy for the us.
