Consciousness 2012: A Collective Breakthrough And The New Beginning Of A More Harmonious, Sustainable, Peaceful World by Dr. Jude Currivan

“Ablockbuster disaster film ‘2012’ due for global release on 13th November, 2009states that on 21st December 2012, the world will come to an end. The film, many books and fevered speculation on the internet quote the end of the five-thousand year cycle of the Mayan Long Count calendar, ending on this date as prophesying a global catastrophe. But leaders of the Mayan people of Central America, whose ancestors devised the intricate calendar, disagree. They say that whilst marking the end of an era, it is our materialistic world-view and lifestyles rather than the material world itself that may be transformed.”

Books Shadows on the Path by Abdi Assadi

“Shadows on the Path offers great insight into the many ways that we sabotage ourselves and it is equally clear on how to get ourselves back on course. Mr. Assadi, a therapist and acupuncturist, has clearly done his own spiritual work and, as is clear from his many revelations and insights, suffered his own mis-steps along the way. His anecdotes and teaching tales are marvelous, and his humility and warmth invite the reader to recognize those snippets of themselves that may still need healing — and that may be the very best recommendation of all.”

Books The Sweet Smell of Success Health and Wealth Secrets by James Tad Geiger MD

“This book is about wellness and well-being and is meant to serve different groups of people in specialized ways. There is a widening health care information gap between health consumers and care providers. The material presented here bridges the gap between laypeople as health care consumers and medically oriented health care providers, with detailed natural healing information based on medical and scientific knowledge. “

Wellbeing & Healing Jin Shin Jyutsu: More Than Just A Luxury? by Don Adams “One thing we tell our clients is that you don’t have to be in pain or discomfort to benefit from a Jin Shin Jyutsu session. In addition to being effective for pain relief, a Jin Shin Jyutsu session will also help with reducing stress and with increasing one’s own sense of well-being…It is a valuable component of a well-rounded healthcare regimen, combating everything from chronic pain to cold/flu relief to the negative effects of stress.”

New York Two Green Witches™ : Organically Grown, Locally Sewn

Two Green Witches™ was founded by two long time friends; Jessica, a homeschooling mom from a country town, and Kathe, a globe-trekking NYC designer. A beautiful organic cotton fabric inspired us. Our products needed to reflect another shared passion, enjoying nature, and our own growing environmental awareness.

Wellbeing & Healing Vitamin D Boosts Immunity © by C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. “Vitamin D has long been known to enhance immune function, even curing tuberculosis of the skin. In the past few years it has been shown to increase naturally body-produced antibiotics! It has now been repeatedly reported that taking 2000 units of D 3 per kg of body weight daily for 3 days, at the first sign of influenza, markedly reduces symptoms and speeds recovery. In Europe and in Australia there are reports of using a single dose of 600,000 units of D3 once a year to prevent flu—far more effective and safer than flu vaccines!”


Dr. Hyman was created to help assist the transformation of health care by empowering the patient to learn the tools needed to create and maintain optimum health and well-being.

“MY COMMITMENT is to be a trusted source of education and information about the radical transformation occurring in our health care system, and provide the tools for people to take advantage of the medicine of the future, today.

“MY DESIRE is to break down the barriers between alternative, complementary, integrative and conventional medicine and create just good medicine – using the appropriate diagnostic and therapeutics tools to match the problem, not just those applied by a particular discipline, such as conventional medicine, herbal medicine, Chinese medicine or energy medicine.

“MY GOAL is to provide a road map to help you navigate through health problems within an entirely new frame of reference, one that allows people to understand and address the causes of disease and ill health rather than just treating their symptoms.

“MY WISH is to have everyone say, “I didn’t know I could feel this good.””

Dr. Hyman was Co-Medical Director at Canyon Ranch Lenox, an internationally acclaimed health resort where he combined the best of conventional and alternative medicine with a blend of science, intuition, integrity and compassion. He is the co-author of the recent New York Times bestselling book Ultraprevention, the Six Week Plan that Will Make You Healthy for Life, and winner of the Books for Better Life Award. He is also the author and creator of The Detox Box, A Program for Greater Health and Vitality (Sounds True, 2004). He is Editor in Chief of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, the most prestigious journal in the field of Integrative Medicine.

He recently testified at the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine on Health Promotion and Wellness, and met with and advised the Surgeon General on a new diabetes prevention initiative. He recently gave testimony as part of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine’s Stakeholder Forum. Dr. Hyman is on the editorial board of the new major medical journal, Integrative Medicine: A Clinician’s Journal.
