IVAS CRIB NOTES I view the simplified vision as the London Underground...it has the basic route through the city, comprised of various sections and each section has a station. Your visual simplification may be different but it certainly helps to have one! Once this concept is grasped it is not so difficult to learn the route of the meridians over the body..it is just another road (tube) map. Along the route are points of interest (AP points) and intersections (meridian crossovers) and shortcuts between sections (Luo points). Traffic controllers utilize key places to influence the flow of traffic on a route.

Make Your Own Herbal Medicines - Natural Health One of the advantages of herbal medicine for gardeners is that many herbs are easy to grow. In fact, a number of medicinal plants commonly are grown as ornamentals. And why go to the store to buy echinacea when you can grow this lovely flu-fighting herb in your own yard? Even if you don't choose to grow herbs yourself, the basic ingredients for many herbal remedies can be purchased in health food stores and prepared in your own kitchen. When I first started working with medicinal plants, I discovered the trick was not in finding the herbs I needed but in knowing how to use them. Then I found Making Plant Medicine, a book by Richo Cech, the owner of Horizon Herbs in Williams, Ore.
