by Kara McNabb, N.H.E.

German biochemist William Scheussler found that when specific minerals were lacking, disease is present. Certain minerals are more abundant during certain times of the year.

by Kara McNabb, N.H.E.

There was once a time when eye doctors didn’t prescribe eyeglasses to those with weak eyesight. Instead, they gave patients exercises to strengthen their muscles.
