- Biotin - 873 words
Biotin Biotin is important for healthy hair and skin. 100 mg of biotin may prevent hair loss in some men. Biotin helps to relieve muscle pain. It promotes healthy nerve tissue, bone marrow and sweat glands. It also relieves seborrheic dermatitis in infants. Biotin works with folic acid and vitamin B12 to break down fats, protein, and carbohydrates. Biotin is found in most foods and also manufactured by bacteria in the intestinal tract. Most biotin deficiencies are associated with the consumption of raw egg whites which contain avidin. Avidin binds with biotin to prevent its absorption into the blood. Cooking the egg whites deactivates avidin. Biotin is non-toxic and probably not required in ...

Music Therapy Music Therapy During the past thirty years, concepts in the mental health profession have undergone continuous and dramatic changes. A relatively new type of therapy is musical therapy, which incorporates music into the healing process.

In addition to the capacity for laryngeal production of sound (which some animals also possess), speech requires a resonance system for modulation and amplification of that sound and an articulation process for the shaping of that sound into the communally established word-symbols of meaning that constitute the language of a given culture. (Dean Edell) The use of langua ...

While it is difficult to accurately determine the population of the pre-Columbian Americas, scholars estimate the number to have been between 40 and 50 million people. The population in Mexico alone in 1519 is believed to have been approximately 30 million. By 1568, that number was down to 3 million inhabitants. ...
