Editor´s Note: Do you ever feel incomplete? Like someone or something is missing from you? Or like you've been broken off from your original wholeness? Around this time of year, thoughts of what's missing may arise. The demand for New Year's resolutions calls our completeness into question. The spirit of perfection--perfect gift, perfect party, perfect dream come true--shows up along with the spirit of Christmas giving.

Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: Today, the state of mental health care in the United States is extremely poor. Chiropractic has a rich history in the mental health arena and had high success rates in the past. On top of receiving chiropractic adjustments the mental health patients were required to eat fresh foods grown in gardens on-site.
