Hi. This site is authored by Thomas (Tom) Cummins, M.S., CA Licensed Acupuncturist, and Marilyn Jackson, PhD, as a way to research and to dialogue about health in the 21st century. We are both interested in learning about how to age well, in the context of of environmental toxic factors. We appreciate western, allopathic medical knowledge while researching eastern, herbal and supplemental alternatives.
Tom practices acupuncture and has a strong background in herbal and supplemental medicine. He is very knowledgeable about many health issues and actively researches current thinking about how to approach illness with alternatives in mind.
Marilyn has a PhD in Higher Education and Social Change from WISR, and has studied health informally with Tom. She also has a certificate in Natural Vision Improvement. Marilyn has been diagnosed with an inflammatory condition, so has many insights for how to deal with inflammation without drugs.
Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are active and experienced gardeners and plan to share our insights, especially for how to develop edible, medicinal, herbal, native and drought tolerant landscapes.
We hope to hear from you on our blog but if you wish to send an email as well, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
