MCS, Gulf War Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Food Sensitivity, Chronic Pain, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety etc
Power of aroma! Directly affects LIMBIC BRAIN: HYPOTHALAMUS/PITUITARY endocrine gland hormone production and sympathetic (fight or flight)/parasympathetic nervous system.
