Holistic Advocacy

So what is Holistic Advocacy?

We are not here to judge nor do we take any responsibility for the information provided here(see Terms and Conditions).We are providing you with the information to make decisions and the resources to contact who you need to contact to take action as your called to.

Here are some areas we look at in holistic advocacy:

  • The availability and quality of healthy food.This includes agriculture, organic standards and the reduction of hormones in food.
  • The availability of holistic resources.This includes restrictions for holistic therapists(such as imposing fees, licensing restrictions and lack of health insurance coverage).  This also includes petitions and advocacy information.

Remember, we create our world through thoughts, words and actions.Let’s do all three to create the world we all can happily call home.
