“Everything you can imagine, nature has already created” said Albert Einstein.  As children of science, we do compete with nature all the time. We find cures and remedies for aging and ailments; but what we often forget is that the same nature that withers in fall revives in spring!  The healthy approach to life is to embrace nature rather than to oppose it. In other words- Age gracefully, restore naturally and live beautifully!
