SONOMA, CA (Oct. 13, 2005) – Healing Quest, the only national TV series focused on integrative health and natural approaches to well-being premieres in New York City at 11 AM Sunday, October 23 on WLIW-TV, Channel 21.
“Our goal with Healing Quest is to give our viewers solid information about the ever-increasing spectrum of options to help them achieve not just the absence of illness but optimum health for mind, body and spirit,” said Judy Brooks, creator and co-host of the series.
Every episode of the weekly Healing Quest series includes:
Healing Secrets, a segment with Dr. Deepak Chopra, the world-renowned author and physician.

HealingQuest is shot on location across the U.S. and around the world but in coming weeks the half-hour series will feature numerous New York stories, including:
- Dr. Mehmet Oz of New York’s Presbyterian Hospital and his integration of craniosacral therapy and Zen shiatsu massage to speed the recovery of open-heart surgery patients (this story appears in the premiere episode Oct. 23);
- Beth Israel’s Continuum Center for Health and Healing, the largest hospital-affiliated center for complementary and alternative medicine in the country; and
- The Natural Gourmet Cookery School, a leading institution in training chefs to create haute cuisine from all organic and natural ingredients.
Other stories range from Colorado, where public school educators are using yoga to help young students improve their ability to learn; to Costa Rica where an herbal supplement company has launched a new way to save the rainforest; to California where a pioneering psychologist has developed a way to literally think away pain.
Co-host and Executive Producer Roy Walkenhorst added: “We’re focusing more than ever on everyday strategies for prevention and healthy living.”
