Holistic Health


Gemini Scan/Artwork



The following is a list of websites worth checking out.

Note: I can't possibly verify the continued existence of these sites on an ongoing basis, so don't be surprised if one you want has evaporated. That's life, and lack thereof, on the Web. Also, there's a predominance of health information here, but other categories will be fleshed out along the way.


  • Health

    1) Planet Health
        Remineralize the Earth
    No webbie yet that I'm aware of for these folks, but this is one of the worthiest groups and missions out there. Remineralize the Earth, 152 South Street, Northampton, Massachusetts, 01060 U.S.A. (Tel: 413.586.4429) is an organization dedicated to restoring the minerally depleted topsoils of the world. This is a major boon to the planet, and thus to humanity, which also needs the minerals that plants should be absorbing. An interesting note is that studies have shown that damaged trees can recover as remineralization restores a soil pH disrupted by acid rain. You can do this in your garden for veggies brimming with good health.

   Though repairing the planet's soils sounds like an impossible task, following the pioneering work of an engineer named John D. Hamaker, Remineralize the Earth's founder Joanna Campe is showing the way. Check it out. The newsletter Remineralize the Earth is available for subscription at $15, $20 and $25 or more for three issues in the U.S., and provides resources and great info on happenings and progress. They use subscription revenues to mail newsletters to Peace Corps volunteers and others in places like El Salvador, Nepal, Cambodia and eastern Europe.
     Nature Conservancy Top notch eco-consciousness organization. Their thing is to actually buy and hold key pieces of land, which will thus will be protected or/and utilized wisely. They work with and educate land owners, businesses and governments to arrive at comprehensive solutions. Worthy of the support of all planet-conscious persons.

2) People Health
    HealthWorld Online
Massive, inexhaustible source of worldwide information. Hard to imagine more info in one place. Focus is on the 'alternative' venue and self help: "We have created HealthWorld Online to act as your 24-hour health resource center--a virtual health village where you can access the information, services and products to help design a wellness-based lifestyle."
[See also HEALTH below for specific links you can jump to from here.]
    Diamond Organics Mail order organic food from a family farm and associate organic farmers near Freedom, California. Nice, homey feel and sincere folk.

  • Science
    Institute for Frontier Science
    "The Institute for Frontier Science (IFS) is a nonprofit corporation founded in 1996 to foster and maintain research, education, and information exchange at the frontiers of science, technology, wellness and healthcare, consciousness, and the mind-body-spirit. As an independent organization, IFS was established to explore novel scientific discoveries and ideas that are often considered unconventional."
  • MacStuff
    Your one-stop for links to Mac software updates - everything from Freeware to Beta (public test) versions. This site stays CURRENT!
    Cult of Macintosh Probably the coolest and most comprehensive Mac site on the Web, with tons of links to everywhere. You could spend days on this one. Fabulous appearance.
    Macintosh User Groups (MUGS) A linked listing of most or all of them. User groups are great for networking and sharing that MacPassion.
    Dreamlight Major showcase of graphic designer Michael Scaramozzino (did Macromedia FreeHand's famous Javelin Thrower) and his interactive multimedia studio. Unique design and function. Wild graphics. Have a fast modem.
  • Spirit and Philosophy
    "A journal of our changing times" Free bi-monthly journal published in hard copy, with its articles collected by subject on the site. " We are publishers of articles on various subjects relating to the Universe and All That Is in it. The main purpose of The Kaleidoscope Journal is to promote co-operation between Holistic and alternative Practitioners. This includes all modalities of Holistic Healing and Alternative Health Care, Spiritual Counselors, Psychics, and Energy Workers. Journal is nicely designed and excecuted. The practitioners and advertising area are primarily in the central Massachusetts, USA area, but growing.
    What is Enlightenment? - Bi-annual journal of the Moksha Foundation that provides insightful articles on spiritual topics of our time.




      Though many modalities may not be officially approved, this is usually politics. However, unless you know you know what you're doing, it's usually wise to consult a certified health care practitioner. Notice I didn't say "licensed health care practitioner". Though licensing can have value, in many cases it is politics, too, and in fact, some practitioners have had their licenses revoked for using safe, effective, but 'unapproved' methods. History is full of these stories. On the other hand, certification (degree, certificate, etc.), upon which licensing is partially based, is usually a reliable indication that the person has taken the trouble to get some formal training.
     But remember the maxim: Ineptitude can transcend education.

      It may help to consider that most of what is called disease is actually symptom. Therefore, keep in mind that some modalities deal mostly with symptoms and not the cause. The trend in holistic fields today is toward the idea that the psyche is the source of all illness regardless of apparent cause. Educating oneself is desirable but challenging, considering both the time required and the degree of controversy, or differing professional opinion. It usually takes the absorption of a wide variety of material before you come to a comfortable sense of what approach or approaches are right for you - the INDIVIDUAL. (For a solid discussion of the disease/symptom concept and related ideas, try my Holistic Health Essays.) Self-treatment is an inalienable right.
     But remember the second maxim: Your own ineptitude could transcend your education.
