We need to visualize the human body as a well-organized chemical laboratory, where the various metabolic cycles, occurring with great regularity, are directed towards the essential production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate: the key molecule involved in metabolizing cellular energy).

Unfortunately, the efficient working of this system can be severely tested by factors such as advancing age, changes in living or working conditions, climatic variations, incorrect diet, stress, unhealthy habits, environmental pollution, or various other circumstances.

All these factors can have harmful effects, both physically and mentally, and even cause damage to the skin.

We must learn to listen more attentively to the messages that our bodies send us, to treat these signals with respect, and to try to both discover and maintain our internal equilibrium.

We need to live in harmony with nature,and with our minds and bodies.
