Natural Living

By Irene Fogarty


As I pack my bags to head East (Seoul, Korea), I’m proud to introduce a new contributor who’s an expert in Chinese medicine, acupuncture and a lot of other forms of therapy you may not already know of. Say hello to Janet Humphrey, M.S., L.Ac.

Janet’s not only my “GP,” she’s a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, with over 20 years experience. Janet is the Director of Giving Nature Center for Holistic Health & Wellness. In addition to her biochemistry and nutrition background, she has graduate studies in nutritional biochemistry and worked in the field of molecular biology prior to becoming an acupuncturist. Best of all, we have her invaluable advice to cherish here at BeautyNews.

Check out Janet’s article on acupuncture, below. It explains everything you need to know and how you can benefit from it.

And remember folks, it’s October…and that’s charity month here at BeautyNews. Which means we take a look at some of the “smaller” organic, all-natural companies that are doing so much for great causes, charities and everyone who works for them. Natural Living continues to applaud these and all those inspiring “green” leaders and will do its best to give them as much visibility in the future. Keep up the good work! The world is beginning to take notice.
