Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: To soothe Vata strained muscles, joints and skin, focus on some self pampering with the Ayurvedic practice of abhyanga.

Editor’s Note from Christina Seluzicki: Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) is considered to be a major figure in Vedanta and Yoga, and is particularly known for his role in introducing these philosophies to Europe and America. These notes on a lecture given by Vivekananda in 1896 as part of a "Beginners' Classes" series, provide a fascinating journey through the spine and the mysterious energy known as Kundalini.

Conventional practitioners, my advice is to enlist the help of a clinical aromatherapist to work with you on your patient's behalf in these cases. Clinical aromatherapists, I stress to you the importance of educating yourselves on the healing power of antimicrobial essential oils and their use for MRSA infections of the skin. For all of us, assume that every scrape or cut is capable of becoming an MRSA infection. Treat all such wounds with anti-staph essential oils from the onset, without fail...
