New Column from Denver-based Acupuncturist Dr. Martha Lucas: "Food for Thought About Beauty, Inside And Out"

Quoting from Dr. Martha Lucas' column in the current issue of Acupuncture Today:

"Friedrich Nietzsche said, 'At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time.' This doesn't seem very true in our current society where many people are searching for cosmetic procedures outside themselves in order to feel good "at bottom." For some, no matter how many cosmetic procedures they endure, there will be no self-acceptance... Dr. Martha Lucas practices TCM in Denver. She is an internationally known instructor of pulse diagnosis and cosmetic acupuncture as well as the author of Vanity Calamity: Your Guide to Cosmetic Acupuncture for Anti-Aging. She is also a moderator on the "Ask an Acupuncturist" forum."
