The The Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe, previously known as The Water Cooler, is a place to post stuff that has absolutely nothing at all to do with computers, broadband, Scot's Newsletter, or anything that's "supposed" to be here.
I second the recommendation for Midori. Another decent one is GNOME's "Web" browser. Another possibility is Netsurf
Don't expect miracles though. These old netbooks are pretty ugly when it comes to performance.
Perspectives on the use of aromatherapy from clinicians attending an integrative medicine continuing education event
Plenty of folks are using aromatherapy. This is a branch of natural medicine which
pre-dates by a country mile our current era of allopathic medicine (M.D.'s) forced in
place by insanely rich oil millionaires over a century ago- and they did this 'scorched
earth' style, if you read up on the history of this. The allopathic model is becoming
steadily more and more obsolete, as humans learn more about science and
medicine and are starting to wise up as to what hacks those guys sometimes are.
And yet it is seemingly all we've got right now. How unfortunate...
More enlightened people embrace integrative medicine. They aren't dumping their
MD's just yet, but they draw on a much wider science and practice which has
proven, time after time, to get folks better results.
Personally, I have little doubt that many of these natural medicine techniques are
efficacious and far less health damaging than many pharmaceutical approaches.
Hey, I've made it abundantly clear, if I am severely injured I am darned sure going
to go to a hospital ER and let the orthopaedic MD's patch me up. They excel at
that sort of thing. Am I going to dump my MD? Heck no! I still need him. But I also
see a ND now as well (Naturopathic Doctor)- college educated, degreed as an ND,
and licensed to practice in my state (having limitations relative to MD's). Frankly, I
trust my ND just as much as my MD, and I value both!
Do I think homeopathy and aromatherapy work? Yes, more likely than not they do.
I have little personal experience to draw on, but the literature supporting these
practices goes back many centuries, probably millenia. The ancient Greeks wrote
on these subjects, mainly as regards various herbal remedies. This large body of
written and spoken healing traditions would not possibly have survived all these
centuries if it were all just 'quackery'! In fact, if you dig deep, you see over and over
where the modern pharmacoepia draws heavily on known efficacious molecules
from herbs for their own, often second best chemical solutions to health
problems. Given a choice, I will always choose herbal supplements and remedies
(to be continued...)
