First Published: Oct 07, 2011 / Last Published: Dec 06, 2011
I write about health issues with a particular emphasis on highly sensitive people. As a highly sensitive person, writer and artist (painter) I am always trying to understand how things work and why. My inquiries have led me down many paths into alternative health. I am a reiki master and long time practitioner of TM and Ayurveda. I have a website and blog devoted to the health concerns of highly sensitive people. They cover genetic, stress and anxiety disorders, social issues as well as health improvement strategies including meditation, herbs, diet and exercise.
