My intention is to compile a comprehensive set of resources for education and self healing. Though I am assembling this directory with personal discernment, I cannot say I completely endorse or promise to have explored the farthest reaches of everything here. In fact there are many instances where statements I agree with are posted right next to statements I do not agree with! One will find a blend of traditional wisdom and modern medical research and is also sure to encounter various products for sale. Use of the information found in these links is at the discretion and responsibility of the individual and is not a substitute for the council of a knowledgeable practitioner.   I will continue to make updates and analyze the quality of these links. Feel free to shoot me any questions or comments.

Note: Eventually I will include brief descriptions of each of the links to help guide people to the appropriate resources. I will also create a separate web page devoted entirely to research because this list will only get bigger and will become quite obtuse (as it already has) within the confines of Word Press. Bear with me.
