Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids Guide

Here are three important health subjects presented in full colour and a clear overview chart-book. Homeopathy Remedies; This system of therapeutics based on the law of similars was introduced in 1796 by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann. He claimed that a large dose of quinine, which had been widely used for the successful treatment of malaria, produced in him effects similar to the symptoms of malaria patients. He thus concluded that all diseases were best treated by drugs that produced in healthy persons effects similar to the symptoms of those diseases. He also undertook experiments with a variety of drugs in an effort to prove this. Hahnemann believed that large doses of drugs aggravate illness, and that the efficacy of medicines thus increases with dilution. Accordingly, most homeopaths believed in the action of minute doses of medicine. Bach Flower Remedies: Edward Bach was a graduate of University College Hospital (MB, BS, MRCS) in England. He left his flourishing Harley Street practice in favor of homeopathy, seeking a more natural system of healing than allopathic medicine. He concluded that healing should be as simple and natural as the development of plants, which are nourished and given healing properties by nature itself. Bach believed that he could sense the individual healing properties of flowers by placing his hands over the petals. His remedies were prepared by floating summer flowers in a bowl of clear stream water which was then exposed to sunlight for three hours. He developed 38 remedies, one for each of the negative states of mind suffered by humans, which he classified under 7 group headings. Vitamins at a Glance Vitamins are chemical compounds which are necessary in small quantities for normal health and growth in higher forms of animal life. Vitamins are distinct in several ways from other biologically important compounds such as proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. Although these substances are also indispensable for proper bodily functions, almost all of them can be synthesized by the body in adequate quantities. Vitamins, on the other hand, generally cannot be synthesized in sufficient amounts and therefore must be obtained from the diet or from synthetic sources. For this reason, vitamins are called essential nutrients. Vitamins also differ from other biological compounds in that relatively small quantities are needed to provide their benefits.
