The goal of the National Health Federation's Pasadena 1997 Natural Health Show is to educate the American family on the natural and alternative therapies available to them. "The American people are tired of health problems with seemingly no solutions and partially effective medications that leave them anguished by side effects, financially drained and still suffering from poor health. These people come to NHF searching for health care professionals who will incorporate alternative medicine and preventative measures into their treatment and care. What America needs is education in natural health and alternative medicine with some solid answers. We intend to provide the attendees of our expo with the essentials to the best possible health," says von Mauck.

Guests can "surf the net" through on-site computers at the show, as sponsor, Planet Wellness provides opportunity and instruction of accessing alternative medicine through the worldwide web and kicks off the promotion of the NHF's new web site at This amazing web site is a public resource featuring a major search engine specific toward alternative medicine and natural health.
