In 1925, James Samuel, then Curator of the Water Supply Department of the New York City Department of Sanitation, was preparing a report about the possible use of discarded orange peels for water purification. He was researching the chemical properties of the peels and used oranges from different groves in an experiment. They all produced a pinkish-red water that he later called “moist orange peel water,” (MOPW). He tested several variations of the MOPW including: After filtering, boiling and charcoal filtration. His trial, showed a great potential for water purification. The water was capable of killing bacteria, fungi, and some viruses, and it could eliminate chlorides, lead, and some radioactive substances. (www.airspacesociety.org)
Home oxygen concentrators are medical devices that provide a pure, medical-grade air supply for long term breathing support. These devices provide continuous, controlled flows of air, removing carbon dioxide, and sometimes humidity and pollutants. They produce a continuous supply of pure air that can be used in the home, hospital or other health care facility. Learn more about home oxygen concentrators.
Alternative medicine has become increasingly popular in the last few decades. However, not all alternative medicine therapies are valid, nor can they be used instead of conventional medicine. Not only are many traditional medicinal approaches non-toxic, they are also generally safe and non-invasive. Many such methods have evolved over millennia and are practiced by the millions of people in Asia, Africa and the Middle East today.

Multiple sclerosis, also known as MS, is a chronic disease that impacts the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord).MS causes the immune system to attack the myelin sheath (the protective covering around nerves) and the nerve fibers themselves. Damage to the myelin sheath and axons disrupts the ability of messages to be transmitted from the brain to the body. Symptoms range from mild to severe, depending on where the damage has occurred. MS occurs in several forms: relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), primary progressive MS (PPMS), secondary progressive MS (SPMS), and progressive relapsing MS (PRMS). These subtypes are based on the severity, progression, and prognosis of the disease. For a more complete explanation, please refer to the Causes and Symptoms of MS section.
In 1558, Constantine Carandini, a Professor of Medical Jurisprudence in Bologna, wrote a book called Arte medica, the first major Latin book on materia medica. The book presents in detail the use of the most commonly available medicines of the day, including opium, wormwood, mercury, rhubarb, bryony, colchicum, and opium. Other scholars began to write about herbs including Constantine Londes, Luca Gonzaga, Servetus and John Gerard.
