The World Health Organization has recognized acupuncture as effective in treating mild to moderate depression. ~Andrew Weil
In the month of October we are proud to have Dr. Andrew Weil on our cover and happy to share his article “Natural Depression Treatment” on page 14. You are invited to meet Dr. Weil in person at the SIMPLE (Symposium of Integrative Medical Professionals in the Land of Enchantment) symposium being held October 13-15 in Albuquerque. It’s the first time the symposium is open to health professionals and also to the general public. On Monday., October 13, Dr. Weil will present a public forum titled “The Evolution of Medicine to Integrative Medicine” at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe (see page 8).
Another important event “Leading by Being: Exploring a New Vision of Leadership” will take place at the Lensic Performing Arts Center on October 11. The event features conversations with Gloria Steinem, Alice Walker, Dr. Chung Hyun Kyung and Aaron Stern.
The month of October is dedicated to honoring several national health celebrations: October is breast cancer awareness month and we share the wisdom about prevention and treatment by several known local practitioners such as Dr. Amit Garg, MD, with Anderson Presbyterian Hospital and Dr. Carla Garcia and Dr. Angelique Hart on pages 9 and 14. We’ll even address cancer in pets on page 23. Our article on page 18 focuses on the dynamic duo of chiropractic and acupuncture in honor of the annual celebration of national Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day and Chiropractic Health Month.
If that’s not enough, our feature article addresses the greening of the urban cities in America.
On that note, I should leave room for you to be pleasantly surprised by the other articles and exciting news briefs that will keep your October calendar busy.
Happy Halloween, Andrea
