    Can Prayer be scientifically proven?
    .
    "If there was any medication that could accomplish that much, people would line up around the world to buy it." Don't leave out God and prayer - the 2 most important ingredients.

    Aromatherapy in Intrapartum Midwifery Practice
    .
    It covered the use of around 10 different EOs for over 8,000 mothers. The study was conducted within the context of a large teaching maternity hospital and the data collected between the years '90 and '98 and comparison data from 'non aromatherapy' mothers was also used. The main indicators used were reduction of maternal anxiety and/or fear; pain; assisting maternal contractions; alleviating vomiting and/or nausea and enhancing maternal well-being. The use of aromatherapy was NOT confined to low risk mothers and overall the study showed the successful integration of this complementary therapy into mainstream midwifery practice. Obviously, there is numerous amounts of very valuable data about various aspects of this study and I would recommend the report to practising aromatherapists for that reason. The study involved a wide range of participants, low risk spontaneous labour and birth, induced labour, vaginal operative delivery and Caesarean section. A minimal incidence of associated symptoms (to aromatherapy) were reported and these were all mild in nature. The chemical constituents, their effects on the body, the molecular structure and their physiological effects are detailed and identified for each oil, and safety data for each (in antenatal and intrapartum periods) is discussed. The oils used in the study were Lavendula augustifolia, Boswellia carteri, Salvia sclarea, Mentha piperita, Citrus limonum, Citrus reticulata, Rosa centifolia, Jasminum grandiflorum, Eucalyptus globulus and Chamaemelum nobile. He was particularly interested in the reports about the use of Frankincense (Bos. Carteri) and discussed this aspect further with some of the research team. Some information about that aspect can be found by clicking on the link 

    It was completed in the UK at OCHRAD (Oxford Centre for Health Care Research and Development). It was an eight year evaluative study by E Burns, C Blamey, S J Ersser, A J Lloyd and L Barnetson in July '99.

    Calcium - Still having "lack of" symptoms?
    .
    Children with crowded, crooked teeth who later must have the wisdom teeth pulled because of a too-narrow jaw are lacking calcium in the body. Sugars, pastries, soft and alcoholic beverages, breads, candies, etc., leach the calcium out of the body, causing varicose veins, cramps, Charlie horses, loss of teeth, nervous upsets, PMS, Miscarriage, etc. 

    Oatstraw is an excellent source of calcium especially when it is combined with horsetail grass, comfrey and lobelia. You need to simmer the oatstraw for 15 min. then turn off the heat and add the other herbs for a great tea. The oatstraw does not release it's calcium in capsule form - it needs to be simmered. 

    A lot of problems would be eliminated if we will balance the calcium and sodium in our bodies. This does not mean "salt" but sodium phosphate as found in fruits and vegetables. Celery is the highest (5 stems a day) in the necessary sodium. (I juice mine) 



    Dr. Christopher
    In our last newsletter we said we had 2 favorite herbalists. WELL! This month is Dr. Christopher's turn. His book "School of Natural Healing" has been our "Bible" for herbal knowledge for 30 years. With our internet business we would be lost without his CD to help us with questions. See why we have been so impressed with his inspired gift of healing. 

    Who is this Dr. Christopher?
