After a rave review of our Natural Care Center on our Facebook page, we decided to reach out to Ginger and learn more about what she thought of her acupuncture treatments at MUIH. What she shares in her inspiring interview is nothing short of amazing.
In early August, Holly Chittum traveled to China along with Dr. Eric Burkhart of Penn State’s Shavers Creek Environmental Center and Dr. Liyang Chen, a Chinese-American chemist and ginseng export company co-owner.
Associate Professor Heidi Most describes how, from a Chinese medicine perspective, “depression and anxiety can be understood as a disturbance to the shen, roughly translated as our spirit.” Most explains in this interview how acupuncture, herbs, dietary therapy, qi gong, and tai chi are all useful for treating depression and anxiety.
We interviewed Holly Chittum, winner of the President’s Award for her research poster at this year’s Research Day. She discusses her research on American ginseng and explains why more research needs to be done in the herbal field.
