International Women’s Day.   Officially this is March 8 and is a legal holiday in some countries!  I learned that when I attended the Integrative Health and Healing Conference in Richmond in 2019 (before the lockdown).  It focussed on women.

Host and major sponsor of the event was Dr Rumki Banerjee, MD of Apex Med, but not the only MD.  Topics included:

Ayurvedic (ancient Asian Indian) herbal therapies

Gluten-free home delivery services available in Richmond 

Nikken magnets

Aquatic therapy to overcome pain

Microbiome and nutritional concepts to restore it

Downtime from electronics – very important -“earthing”

A pediatrician spoke about treating children with various “handicaps” – focussing on complementary therapies
