Lotus Guide, Jan/Feb/March 2011: 'Unexplained Health Conditions may be Caused by Gluten Sensitivity!'
Lotus Guide, Fall 2005: 'Safely Combining Prescription Drugs with Herbal Remedies'
This same article was published in the Paradise Post on January 27, 2009, but without as much editing, but still written for the layperson. I have this available as a brochure in the office too (called 'Safely Combining Herbal Remedies with Pharmaceutical Drugs'), written with technical, medical language that wasn't appropriate for a newspaper article. I will eventually post it here also!
Another article was published in March 2010 about a lecture I gave at one of the local gyms, Beyond Fitness, on the 'Top 10 Superfoods for Longevity'. I will have my written article plus recipes available on this site soon (call or email if you want it before then).
There also have been several articles in the past few years about Heavenly Herbs and Acupuncture in the local newspaper, the Paradise Post. (Details to follow.)
Community comes together in aftermath of fire

I am a founding Director of Paradise Community Wellness Connection (formed in 2009), and am currently serving as the Treasurer. We have obtained non-profit status, and have had several membership meetings and sponsored a health festival in May 2010, called Family Wellness Days. We have also distributed two printings of a Resource Guides, a listing of CAM professionals in the local area!!!
See Paradise Community Wellness Connection website for more info (anyone can join and support our educational efforts)!
