  • Relief of chronic and subacute inflammation and conditions such as acne, eczema and allergies

  • Immune system stimulation for preventative and therapeutic effects

  • Regeneration of tissues (e.g., from burns and pre- and post-surgical scarring) and anti-aging effects

  • Detoxification of the body

  • Relief of chronic pain

  • Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, depression, stress, loss of vitality, and loss of memory

  • Reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
