Diary Of A Neurofeedback Newbie: Part 4

Today is August 25th. It's my eight session and I am looking forward to it. I'm hoping it'll help me get through the final push to finish my work projects—and packing!—before we leave for Hawaii. I enjoy my time on the table and get up feeling refreshed and refocused. I work steadily for the rest of the day and the following day. Before a trip, I typically operate with the mantra: Ack!

Homeopathy: Finding the Cure in the Cause

Like cures like. That’s the concept behind homeopathy, a centuries-old system that stimulates the body's innate healing ability. In 1796, Samuel Hahnemann, M.D. observed that Cinchona Bark, a medicinal plant used by native people in South America to treat malaria, could also cause the symptoms of malaria in healthy people.
