You might notice a few changes around Mamavation right now – we’re working to simplify the experience of all our community members. One of the changes is that we are posting the information about Monday’s show the week BEFORE the show. Giveaways are no longer tied to the blogging carnival, so you are NOT required to add a disclosure to your post. We are also using Rafflecopter for the giveaways, so it should be much easier to enter. Just make sure that you’re watching the show on Monday when we announce the winners! We’re hoping that the changes will help to lower the amount of stress in our lives… and that’s definitely a topic on which our guest speaker could add some insight this week! She’s the author of The Alternative Medicine Cabinet and host of The Alternative Medicine Cabinet series on OTV.
Special Guest: Kathy Gruver, PhD
Our guest this week is no stranger to alternative healing – she studied mind/body medicine at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind/Body Medicine at Harvard Medical School and pursued further education at the National Institutes of Health. In addition to hosting a national TV show, she is also a practitioner with over 20 years of experience. She maintains a massage and natural health practice in Santa Barbara, CA, has been an expert source for magazines, radio programs and TV shows too. She was also recently nominated for a Gutsy Gal Award! And we get the pleasure of her company and expertise on our show Monday night!
On Monday, we’ll be talking with Dr. Kathy Gruver about alternative healing – this is a pretty wide topic, so if you have any questions, make sure you let us know by leaving a comment below (and hey! it’s a giveaway entry too!). Her upcoming book is Conquer Your Stress with Mind/Body Therapies, so we will definitely hit on that part of alternative healing as well. Join us on Monday to hear Kathy Gruver, PhD discuss alternative medicine, it will be enlightening for sure! You can also connect with Dr. Gruver on Twitter, her Facebook page, and catch her weekly health tips on her YouTube channel.
