Holistic Health Magazine.com Hosts Daily Recovery PodCast
Posted Aug 21 2009 12:00am
Every day, Holistic Health Magazine.com’s John Hollis hosts the two-hour “Holistic Lifestyles Radio Show.” The show covers a slew of topics but regularly highlights addiction recovery.
Just yesterday, August 20, 2009, the radio show had guests Ron Tannenbaum and Ken Pomerance, who are the founders of one of the biggest social-networking websites for people in recovery called IntheRooms.com.
One of the things mentioned, to give an example, was how much the tone and discussion about recovery has changed in the last 25 years since Ron and Ken began the process.
They mentioned how people in those days were very discreet, and how many people thought of addicts as people who lived under bridges in the “BAD” part of town.
They went on to say how much the general attitude has changed, and how the internet has made it much easier for people to have sincere conversations about their addiction comfortably.
They summed it up by saying that the face of addiction is much more realistic and open now. The addict is no longer seen as the guy under the bridge, but rather, as everyday people from a neighbor, to a family member, a co-worker, or a best friend.
The show went on to discuss how social-networking sites specifically geared towards people in recovery, such as intherooms.com, has brought people together across fellowship lines (AA, NA, GA, OA, MA, etc) and given them a place where they can get together between fellowship meetings and discuss their worries, fears, insecurities, accomplishments, health, feelings, mental state, etc.
The radio show’s daily schedule is as follows: Monday – Friday (2 p.m. to 3 p.m.);
Saturday (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.); and Sunday (9 p.m. to 11 p.m.).
Holistic Health Magazine was founded 25 years ago by Keith McManus, Founder and CEO. Originally the magazine could only be found in print, and its circulation was limited to South Florida.
In the years since, Holistic Health Magazine is still going strong, in-print, with national circulation to more than 182 book sellers but has also expanded to an online version, HolisticHealthMagazine.com, which has received much success since its inception.
The Magazine’s philosophy can be summed up perfectly by the words of its founder Keith McManus who said:
“There is nothing that matters more to me than making a positive difference to uplift the lives of others in any way possible…Holistic Health Practices…lead me to spearhead a magazine…that connects incredible people from all over the globe…making a true difference in people’s lives…”
