The information explosion includes holistic wellness.
(PRWEB) July 27, 2010
HeartCore Corporation announced today that the company is now covering holistic health news. Since 2001, their HealthyNewAge.com web site has published articles on a wide array of alternative healing topics, but this is their first foray into aggregating the news.
"The information explosion includes holistic wellness, so people can't possibly keep up with all of the news," said Kirk VandenBerghe, President of HeartCore. "Since our writers follow the field, we're in a great position to alert our web site visitors about the most useful recent developments."
As the U.S. "Baby Boom Generation"—those born between 1946 and 1964—continues to age, their interest in topics like memory loss causes, sciatic nerve pain relief, and weight loss products like natural metabolism boosters increases.
In 2008, Health Forum, which is a subsidiary of the American Hospital Association, surveyed U.S. hospitals and discovered that more than 37 percent of respondents provide one or more natural healing therapies, which has increased from the 2005 level of 26.5 percent. Thus, even institutions focused on conventional medicine are beginning to embrace complementary methodologies. "Patients who are aware of their alternative medicine treatment options prior to entering the traditional health care system can make better decisions," said VandenBerghe.
HealthyNewAge.com watches a number of categories, like acupuncture, acupressure, brain fitness, cleansing, low-level laser therapy, essential oils, meditation, alternative pet care, aromatherapy, Chinese medicine, body work and massage, herbalism and herbology, Hawaiian huna, applied kinesiology, ayurveda, energy work, NLP, yoga, osteopathy, chiropractic, colon hydrotherapy, naturopathy, fasting, exercise and fitness, homeopathy, non-toxic green living, magnetic therapies, flower remedies, Holotropic Breathwork, holistic dentistry, craniosacral, hypnotherapy, nutrition, organic gardening, qigong and tai chi, reflexology, crystal healing, radionics, orthomolecular medicine, vegetarianism, veganism, raw food diets, iridology, music therapy, dance therapy, and many others.
The alternative medicine field is not without controversy. Many in the established medical community voice the need for better education, rigorous evidence-based scientific research, a focus on consumer and patient safety, and stricter government regulations. HealthyNewAge.com will cover these perspectives as well, including any studies that uncover problems in natural health products, service providers, or techniques.
Recent HealthyNewAge.com news coverage includes the following topics: FDA approval of stevia-based sweeteners, a study that found many products that contain corn syrup are also high in mercury, a NASA-funded study on the positive effects of smelling peppermint, wellness retreat trips to Chiang Mai, Thailand, and controversy over agave nectar production.
