AUGUST 2024
“SILENT DISEASES, HIDDEN THREATS”

Publication Date – AUGUST 20

In vast numbers, people of all ages walk around with serious diseases that are too often lethal and eventually debilitating but are “silent”—offering few or no symptoms. Among these are heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, obesity, and—what is now recognized as a major silent killer—stress. Of equal concern are the many invisible or unexpected threats to our health from drug side effects, or from toxic substances in our water, soil, and food. In the August edition of Health&Healing, we will ask local practitioners to share their experiences when they confront the challenge of treating patients with “silent diseases”—challenges that may be and often are diagnostic as well as therapeutic.

OCTOBER 2024
“THE ART & SCIENCE OF HEALING”

Publication Date – OCTOBER 22

For practitioners of all types—from surgeons performing the most demanding procedures, to massage therapist inducing relaxation and easing pain—blending of art and science is truly at the very center of “the healing arts.” And perhaps the ultimate challenge of the healing process is diagnosis—to accurately interpret the signals (symptoms) from your body that there’s a problem, and thus to discover its source. Skilled diagnosis involves both art and science—strengthened by experience, intuition, and remarkable testing technology. In October, we will invite local “artist-scientists” to share their healing approaches—from diagnosis to restored health.

DECEMBER 2024
“JOURNEYS: HEALING PATHS & PATHS OF HEALERS”

Publication Date – DECEMBER 17

We spend our lives on journeys of every kind: journeys of smiles and sorrows, triumphs and pitfalls, health and dis-ease. Often health journeys test caregivers and their patients in memorable ways. What have the challenges been? The outcomes? What can we learn from these memorable patient-provider experiences? It is an issue of exploration. Patients are sometimes challenged to find the most effective “healing path,” and often need different approaches—singular paths—even for the same ailments, which sometimes translates into especially difficult journeys, from one practitioner to another. These variations on journeys of healing and self-discovery speak to the mission of Health&Healing—which exists primarily to help its readers find their most effective path to healing.
