Borderlands Acupuncture | Herman Garcia – Ryan Bemis | Madness Radio
Are psychiatric treatments, experts, and medications the best way for traumatized communities to heal their mental health problems? Could indigenous practices, including traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, offer a different way forward — through grassroots community development?
Herman Garcia is the Vice President and Ryan Bemis Founder of Crossroads Community Supported Healthcare, which offers practical skills training to local healers in the violence-stricken communities of Ciudad Juarez and Sierra Tarahumara, Mexico. Joined by health promotors Maria de Jesus, Sister Maria de Rosario Cordova, and Gloria of the Rahrami indigenous group, they discuss supporting communities harmed by the War on Drugs, severe poverty, and inequality.

I liked this show. I have an indigenous practice one known to me Pat that heals me and it is my 2016 youtube playlist. Enjoy!
I learned so much from this program. I am also on the Board of Crossroads Acupuncture in Las Cruces, but have not had an opportunity to go to a NADA training.
I think I will do that.
