Let’s start with some resources on one of the very worst health problems in the workplace, STRESS.
Another huge affliction in the workplace and at home is depression,
a problem threatening to “decimate the global economy.” Find out about an inexpensive, natural solution, now considered by the United States’ NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health) to be the #1 remedy or “treatment of choice” for depression.
Here’s another terrible bane for the workplace, school and community: the “common cold,”
which, because of widespread lack of knowledge of effective remedies, usually turns into chronic, recurring sinusitis and countless lost days to workers and lost dollars for their employers.
Then there is the matter of chronic bodily aches and pains
–agonizing back-pain and neck-aches, hand-wrist pain, headaches, and pain in the hips, legs and feet, and eyestrain, due to poor posture, stress, lack of exercise and healthy blood flow. Read this linked section to discover easy, natural remedies instead of taking the potentially dangerous, toxic path of heavy pain-medications or surgeries.
