Healing a Child with Natural Remedies

Nature has a cure for every illness; one simply needs to be made aware of these cures. For several years we lived in virtually an isolated place close to the hills and the fields and that’s when we realised the benefits of living close to nature.

Sustainability for a Futurist : Archaeology

Here’s another dose of enlightenment from our comrade Aliston, he takes us through the origins of man, laughs at evolution and puts forth some interesting theories. This is a follow up on his previous post on Health. There have been many unexplainable artifacts that have been found at sites all around the world but are dumped in basements and not acknowledged because they don’t fit in ... »

Sustainability for a Futurist : Health

In continuation to Aliston’s Sustainability for a Futurist : Technology, he covers health, alternative medicines, ancient techniques now forgotten and a technique that cured 98% of fatal cancers.
