"The Constitution of this Republic should make special provisions for Medical Freedom as well as Religious Freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic." -- Benjamin Rush, M.D., signer of the Declaration of Independence and the first Surgeon General of the United States.

Q. What is Complementary and Alternative Health (CAM)?
A. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institute of Health, CAM is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not generally considered to be part of conventional medicine. While scientific evidence exists regarding some CAM therapies, for most there are key questions that are yet to be answered through well-designed scientific studies—questions such as whether these therapies are safe and whether they work for the purposes for which they are used.
Healing resources, therapeutic practices, and the accompanying theories and beliefs which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medicine, the intrinsic politically dominant health system and possibly lacking biomedical explanations, as they become better researched, some, such as physical therapy, massage therapy, diet and nutritional analysis, hypnosis and hypnotherapy, Rieki, acupressure, and acupuncture have become widely accepted. In the last few years more money has been spent on alternative therapies. Termed Complementary when used in addition to conventional medical treatments and Alternative when used instead of conventional medical treatments, these approaches to health and well being find more and more fans and acceptance every year.

Q. What else do you do?
A. We sponsor and host trips to see the Miracle Man of Brazil, John of God or Joao Teixeria da Faria, the most prominent spiritual healer on the planet. Various Presenters travel to Chicago and will hold workshops or seminars displaying innovative methods of healing. We have monthly events (see Ongoing Events Page), and through our charitable contibutions we support the People's Resource Center, Saret Charitable Fund at www.SARETCharitablefund.org Dr. Karen Maloney's Carin' Connections www.careinconnections.com , Serenity House, and The Humanitarian Project. Donations of cash, canned goods, blankets, sweaters, and winter coats as well as paper products help and are always appreciated. We provide speakers for organizations, businesses, and agencies looking to expand their knowledge.
We also like to have fun! See picture below and browse the site for additional glimpses into our center.
Q. Do you practice conventional medicine there?
A. No, generally we do not practice allopathic or conventional medicine! The services, treatments, seminars, and products we provide are not a substitute for medical advice. If you need medical attention, please consult a qualified physician or other licensed health care provider. We do refer to several wonderful M.D.'s (Dr. Pauline Harding, Dr. Karen Maloney, Dr. Mitchell Halper) who've helped our clients in the past. Frequently, medical doctors refer patients to us for our complementary and alternative services.
