At the end of the 18th century a French doctor noticed that the wounds of his patients healed faster when the patient had been exposed to the sun. A century later, a Danish physician called Niels Finsen, drew a similar conclusion. He therefore began treating diseases using sunlight. This became such a success that Finsen won a Nobel Prize for his sunlight treatment for tuberculosis in 1903.

The Oil Well Minefield


There is a hidden, underwater, environmental catastrophe on the horizon for the oceans and seas around the world. Oil, the natural resource humans depend on for transportation and the making of many items we buy and use on a daily basis is the culprit. It is widely thought that when an oil company stops drilling that the well is dry of oil, but that’s not true. There is still oil left behind because there is not enough of it left for a company to view it as a viable money making option.

End of Summer; Sabotaging Thoughts, and Advantages


This past summer I slacked off quite a bit on my eating plan. A large reason for slacking off was what I like to call “sabotaging thoughts”. Sabotaging thoughts are, essentially, the thoughts that give me permission to eat something that wasn’t good for me and didn’t benefit my health. Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay to eat a piece of cake on occasion, but often times when I start eating an unhealthy food, I start to crave it more and then allow myself to indulge too often.

Love Potions And Wanderlust: An Alchemist’s Guide To The Weekend

I loved stories of those wild women, pioneers of apothecary and midwifery, outliers of medieval society who dispensed natural remedies and were burnt at the stake for their troubles. I would skip around the garden, unknowingly quoting Shakespeare's Macbeth - “Bubble Bubble, Toil and Trouble”. Flowers and herbs would find their way into my jam jar, which I would later try and sell to my parents and innocent bystanders as ‘perfume’. As I grew up, this pioneering spirit mixed with wanderlust and became a powerful concoction that propelled me across the world.
