We don't have a contact page as we cannot give individual diagnosis or advice. All of the information we have is on the website and we update it as often as possible with new content. We realise that there are a lot of sceptics out there who don't agree with some of the views we have published here. That's OK, we're all entitled to our opinions and if you are one of those people then, this website is not for you.
If you would like to help us keep the website going, then just buy some of the products on offer on each of the pages. The links go directly to amazon.co.uk, where you can log into your account and purchase oils or carriers etc. We then receive a small commission. We are not involved in the actual sales as this is between you and Amazon and we do not see any of your financial information. A very big thank you to all those kind soles who have helped us thus far.
Featured Article ~ AVICENNA
Abu 'Ali al-Husayn ibn 'Abd Allah ibn Sina, is understandably better known by the Latinised version of his name - Avicenna. He was one of the most outstanding of Arab physicians in an era when Arab medicine was the most advanced in the Western world.
He was born in 980 ad. in the town of Bukhara in Persia (now in the Uzbeckistan). He was by all accounts an infant prodigy, and had memorised the Koran and quantities of Arab poetry by the time he was ten years old. His father provided him with tutors in logic, metaphysics, arithmetic and other sciences until he outgrew his tutors, and continued to educate himself, in subjects including Islamic law, astronomy and medicine until he was 18. resent with other antiseptic agents in use at that time.
By the age of 21 he was already famed for his mastery of allbranches of formal learning, and for his medical prowess, and became physician-in-chief to the hospital at Bhagdad. Inevitably, such a brilliant young man was invited to become personal physician to a succession of Caliphs, and almost equally inevitably, he attracted jealousy and intrigue, as a result of which he spent several periods in prison. Even in prison he continued to study and to write, and he is said to have had such a strong physique that he withstood ordeals that would have killed a lesser man.
