Excluding people in the intellectual class, normal workers in Vietnam are seldom aware of protecting environment and their health.
Although lifestyle, foods and environment affect directly to people’s health, however this is not understood completely. When getting sick, people will immediately take medicines which are bought at drugs stores. If the problem becomes serious, they will go to health centers or hospitals. This habit will cost so much for individuals and society health-care. Poor persons cannot afford treatment fees, some of them have to wait to die. Their families then fell in disaster of broke. This is one of the reasons why the health-care system faces with problem of overload.
Policies of health insurance cannot really approach to each poor person. There are still many people in misery when getting sick.
People's perceptions should be changed about the illness. Illness caused by lifestyle, foods and environment. People can proactively prevent it. Also, they need to have facilities at home.

Share the story of the founder and what inspired the founder to start this project
One day, my maid got very high fever and fell in state of delirium at late mid-night; I had to use some herbs in our garden to make an herbal boiled pot to stop her high fever without medication. After the fever, she fell in paralyzed situation, but with only a handful of herbs with salt, she was rapidly recovered. This makes me strongly believe in great value of aroma therapy. I’ve learned more and known that some normal kinds of leaves have wonderful effects: some of them can help people easy to breath, relieve asthma, can be an antibiotics or deodorant, insects resistance. I found a combination of leaves with pleasant aroma brings relaxation to sleep.
Another time, an American pharmacist used my herbal heat pad while he had sore back. After applying, he was amazed about the product: how could it help his back upright, no longer pain and brought him a sound sleep. He would like me to provide him some herbal heat pads for his family. This was my first income from herbal heat pads and I had donated this money to victims of Agent Orange.
Since then, I’d wondered myself why I didn’t do anything to help vulnerable people. I learned that disabled people will become inability people only when they have no chance of working. The society must care for them as a responsibility rather than charity. I decided not to donate to them, but tried to give them an equal working environment with all respects. Besides, I wish to aware to people that Qigong rememo, a very efficient method of health care that people in the world can learn this online and cure themselves and others.
