Changing the Face of Clinical Prescriptions: Moving from Pharma to Gaia with Anna Needham

Health care, at its simplest, is the art of returning imbalance to balance. If you look at medicine in terms of Yin and Yang, the balancing barometer for all things, then you could say that allopathic medicine is (very) yang; aggressive, strong and masculine - and it has dominated our health care systems for the last century. So what happens to a society that is treated by an imbalanced heath care system? Obscure illness, chronic disease and heavy reliance on numbing medications. Sound familiar? Insert the antidote — Yin.

To learn more, join us as we discuss the spectrum of illness, the journey to health and the dire need for herbal medicine in mainstream medicine.

Anna Needham is owner and CEO of Tao Natural Foods, a health and wellness shop located in Minneapolis. Tao Natural Foods is a multi faceted business that includes an organic cafe, herbal shop, health services and community classes. Anna is also a practicing Acupuncturist and carries a MN medical license. Her passion for natural health care is driving her business's evolution to include the first natural acute care clinic in the Twin Cities where patients will be seen, diagnosed and treated with only natural remedies on a walk-in basis. The goal of this clinic is to create an alternative healing option for patients looking to treat illnesses with natural, safe and effective medicines.
