East And West - Deepstash

East And West

Western medicine, for all its knowledge, has no clue about the connection of body, mind and soul. It is mainly concerned with the physical body and tries to dissect the various body parts, treating them as separate objects that can be repaired or replaced.

Eastern medicine does not treat the body as an automobile, and works holistically, as they have intricate knowledge on how our body parts, blood, mind and soul are interconnected.

Sleep Demand Is On An All-Time High

Sleep is one of the three pillars of health, along with exercise and nutrition.

How Aromatherapy Works

Essential oils are absorbed by smell receptors (connected to the limbic system) which controls heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and stress.

They carry the “essence” of the plant.

Each plant’s essence has a different chemical composition that affects its smell, absorption, and effect.
