Forget Coffins – Organic Burial Pods Will Turn Your Loved Ones Into Trees. The idea of coming full circle and returning whence we came from is one that appeals to many of us, regardless of our faith (or lack thereof), and this is an idea captured perfectly by this beautiful new burial method developed in Italy.

Forget Coffins – Organic Burial Pods Will Turn Your Loved Ones Into Trees

The Capsula Mundi project by designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel has developed an organic, biodegradable burial capsule that will turn the deceased’s body into nutrients for a tree that will grow out of their remains. After being encapsulated in the fetal position, the deceased is buried and either a tree or tree seed is planted above their capsule. The project’s site already has a number of trees to choose from.

Many people are deficient in this vital mineral that the body uses for hundreds of reactions. Every cell in the body needs magnesium in some way, and it is vital for bone, tooth, muscle, and joint health as well as for optimal sleep and stress reduction. Deficiency of magnesium is widespread because many of us have lifestyle factors that actively deplete magnesium such as lack of sleep, excess stress, or alcohol/caffeine/sugar consumption. On top of that, many natural sources of magnesium are becoming depleted (such as the soil due to over-farming and high pesticide use) and water filtration systems remove much of the naturally occurring magnesium in water.

I take magnesium internally and use it on my skin daily in the form of magnesium oil. How To Make Your Own Magnesium Oil Simple homemade magnesium oil made with magnesium chloride flakes helps improve sleep and stress levels. How To Detox From Fluoride.

All the charts mentioned may be downloaded free from By Leo Angart Astigmatism occurs when your cornea is not perfectly round and the image is focused both on the retina as well as behind the retina. You will see this as a shadow or a doubling of what you are looking at. Sometimes vertical lines appear to tilt.

There’s something strange happening around the globe… but it’s awesome! Lifestyles and needs are changing, and consequently, our houses are shrinking. The tiny house movement has blown up in the past few years, shifting the traditional North American housing models towards a more practical, finance-friendly blueprint.

This means that if two people lived in a 300 square foot pad and could call it a tiny house, then 8 people living in a 2,000 square foot house could boast the same title.
