  • Aromatherapy
    Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses volatile liquid plant materials, known as essential oils (EOs), and other aromatic compounds from plants for the purpose of affecting a person's mood or health. Scientific evidence is weak and preliminary but mildly encouraging for a limited number of claims. Essential oils differ in chemical composition from other herbal products because the distillation process only recovers the lighter phytomolecules.

  •  Shopping for Your Health


    Your health is something that is spoken and written about often in today’s society. With our busy none stop life styles we leave little time for ourselves and our health. Regular doctors check ups, exercise, eating healthy food and vitamin supplements are just some of the things we can do to maintain a healthy life style. Finding the time to shop has become a problem given these fast lane lifestyles and the internet has provided us with the answers.


    There are shops where you can buy pretty much anything on the internet when it comes to your health. From shops you can buy exercise equipment from, articles you can read which tell you all about the latest craze for healthy living to health food shops that sell suppliments. Every need, wish and want can be catered for. So if we look at these three main types of health shopping that you can do on the internet;


    Exercise Equipment – Looking for exercise equipment on the internet can be a mine field but as long as you have even a rough idea about what you want you can find it quite easily. If you are not bothered about buying pre-owned equipment then some sites such as eBay offer a good selection at reasonable prices, they also offer on line shops within the site where you can read exactly what previous customers think about their service and their item/s purchased. That way you can always be sure of what you see will be what you get. Some times by logging on to your favorite site about your chosen exercise will provide you with links to reputable stores and show you where you can buy certain specialist equipment. 


    Health Food Stores – Looking for vitamins and supplements could not be easier than it is today using the internet. There are hundreds of online stores that can sell you everything from your standard multi vitamins to your more unusual bee pollen nuggets. Deciding on what supplements you need, can be quite daunting, some of the online sites offer you advice and guidance given on what information you answer in their online quizzes. Always read the instructions and guidelines before purchasing as some things may not be what it says on the bottle. For those things you buy on a regular basis try out the compare sites to make sure you are treating your pocket as healthy as you are treating your body by saving yourself some money that can be better used else where.


    Information – The internet in itself has in fact been dubbed as “the information super highway”. You can find out information on any subject on the internet that you need at the click of a button. Health information can be given for free in the shape of articles on certain sites but they will never go as in-depth as you need them to. Making a mistake with information on your health can be very dangerous, so the only sure fire way to get good honest information is to shop for books. Books on health on the internet come in two forms, EBooks and paper/hard back.
