The Whole Thing 

With healthcare costs on the rise and health-insurance benefits being slashed, it seems like a good time for an alternative to conventional medicine. Mary Ellen Smith of Cordova has just the thing.

On Saturday, November 5th, she's hosting the Mid-South Wellness Expo for Mind, Body, and Spirit at the Agricenter International. The expo's focus is on holistic medicine, a form of alternative healing that treats the mind, body, and spirit as a whole rather than concentrating on one specific area of the body.

Holistic healing takes many different forms, including acupuncture, herbalism, and whole-foods nutrition. The expo will feature a number of experts doling out advice on these subjects, as well as vendors selling products such as healing crystals, bath salts, hematite jewelry, books, and meditative music on CDs.

"In the past, at trade shows, I've felt like people were hesitant to talk with the people behind the booths because they felt pressured to buy something," Smith says. "We want people to feel comfortable asking questions and being there to learn as much as to buy."

Mid-South Wellness Expo for Mind, Body, & Spirit, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday, November 5th, at the Agricenter International, Entrance C (7777 Walnut Grove).
