Diseasemongering - try natural alternatives to medication for indigestion
Indigestion isn't an especially glamorous medical topic, but relieving this condition -- and keeping the whole gastrointestinal (GI) tract operating comfortably and efficiently -- is vital to overall well being. As French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau put it, "Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion."
Dr Andrew Weil's article
Many physicians are resistent to plant medicine because as Tisserand puts it 'plant medicine doesnt sound like science'. Within the Shirley Price shareholder list a significent shareholder is a medical doctor who describes himself to visiting aromatherapists like tutor Jan Benham as the biggest sceptic of plant medicine imaginable but who takes a keen interest in our affairs. When I discussed oils for a condition affecting his children that have been subject of scientific study the studies were dismissed and he reached for a remedy that would make you blush. Faced with this no wonder some resort to myths!
He is someone who would probably have succeeded whatever he set his mind to. It happened to be aromatherapy. People attend Tisserand's courses and seminars and buy the oils which bear his name because they and he think they are the best. That is the same basis on which Shirley Price was founded and why Sp has endured as a leading training and product supplier for professional aromatherapy long after its founders retired.
