I have found Healthy Referral to have some of the most interesting health articles that I have ever read.  Many of the articles I have encountered within dealt with topics in health that other health publications that I have seen had not approached with a holistic view.  May you enjoy another 25 yrs.  I wish you well with success.  Rocco Rolenz, Akron, OH _________________________________________________________________ It was so good to meet you, too. I was really excited about your paper and�� the possibility of advertising in it and writing for it. I read the whole thing when I got home and I love the diversity of writers and articles. It was so refreshing to read a paper that was ALL positive. The other cool thing is that I have always wanted to go to Lake Chautauqua because my yoga instructor raves about it all the time -Melissa Cairns, Race Director On My Own Two Feet, Kent, OH  …committed to advocacy and empowerment of survivors of abuse by supporting, physical, mental, and spiritual well being. _________________________________________________________________ Hello Tom, I had a chance to review “Healthy Referral” it’s more than a magazine. I found it to be extremely inspiring and the information was diverse. Your magazine can defiantly capture the attention of hospitals, schools, educational institutions and the general public world/ wide. The magazine reads different from other magazines, Lot’s of inviting information you don’t find in other Health Magazines, in California. All The Best, Arvel  “Pitching Hollywood Concepts To Major and Independent Studios” __________________________________________________________________ The paper is a wealth of knowledge.  Thanks so much for giving me a copy. I spent more time on it than the Plain Dealer! You should be very proud of your son!  Donna __________________________________________________________________ Thank you for following through and keeping me posted.  You two are both unique for this area of Florida. Harvey Pearlman, Licensed and certified Massage Therapist for 25 years, and with extensive and continuing post-graduate course work in BodyTalk™   Thank you both for your magnificent and outstanding support of my Healing Laser Seminar and Holistic Practice!!!   Best Regards, Harvey Pearlman ___________________________________________________________

Dear Tom and Marchia;Healthy Referral is great!  A Newspaper for the 21st Century.  It has such an array of Healthy topics, covering mind, body, soul, and environment.

“I like the Healthy Referral.  It is full of wisdom and knowledge rather than all the negative stuff in this world.  There is so much good all around, if we only see it.” Beatrice Keeler Woods, 102 years young. _________________________________________________________________ “I cannot tell you how much I enjoy Healthy Referral. I look forward to each issue and the enlightenment that it brings. I enjoy learning about what I can do for myself and others rather than being reminded what can’t or shouldn’t be done. It is also so convenient to have a source for both human and environmental health concerns. And how I wish there was a way to go to all the special events noted. Healthy Referral even makes sure I have the latest information on new products.This redefines the idea of going the extra mile. Wow!” Celeste Owens- Assoc. Producer/Pres. Local Market Sales Duke and the Doctor-nationally syndicated health talk show _________________________________________________________________

I started my path on natural health back in 1985.   There were two people out there pioneering the way already.  Those two people were Tom Katovsky and Marchia Minor.  They were sincere and very interested in educating people on how to be smart about making healthy choices.  I remember going to health shows that they offered with food demonstrations and exhibitors.  Healthy dinners and banquets were offered with a number of great speakers.  One item in particular was so very important to them and that was Spirulina.  I never saw anything so green!  Interesting enough, they were on the right track, as it is still a very important food source to have to this day and will continue to be. They weren’t following the “main stream”, they were paving the way for others.  Today, they are still out there and have a very large following.  People from all over the world are listening to them.  They keep an open mind and are always looking for ways to increase their own and other peoples understanding of maintaining greater health.  Two very positive, upbeat and health oriented people.   They are a great asset to our community and the world.  Thank you Tom and Marchia.  You two can always be counted on for being there.

“What caught my immediate attention about the Healthy Referral Newspaper Was that it lives up to it’s name – it refers the reader to a great variety of health matters – food to finances.  But, even more exciting, it is not biased, it allows an excellent mix of opinions on the same health  topic.  In my case, I come from a Christian, Biblicist, health viewpoint – I can eat any food according to God’s dietary laws as long as I eat them in moderation.    Jack Windisch-International Financial Intermediary”

JIM CHONES-former Cavalier and Los Angeles Laker Pro basketball Center

After talking to Tom Katovsky, he sold me on the health magazine, Healthy Referral. After I read a few issues, came to the conclusion that it was more than just health information, that could be discussed at breakfast or lunch. But it was a lifestyle, a culture. That’s what I was looking for in my writings. A distribution vehicle that was authentic and real. Something that was part of me. Not commercial and fake. That’s what Healthy Referral denotes for me. The information between the pages is just not information, but life saving knowledge. We all know that the struggle for most of us, is not our social standing within the society or our lack of sufficient economic prowess and our weak spiritual presence, but our “lack of knowledge”. Healthy Referral is life-changing. Its mind-altering. It’s the truth, and “the truth will set you free”.

I spent eleven years as a color analyst for the Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball Team. I played with the Cavaliers for five seasons, including the “Miracle of Richfield” season in 1974-75, when I averaged a career and team high 15.8 points per game, while contributing 9.0 rebounds per contest. In April 1991, I was chosen by Cavs Fans as the Center for the “Classic Cavs Team” covering the first 20 years of Cleveland Cavaliers History _________________________________________________________________

Dear Tom, Thanks for the papers. I was really impressed! You’ve grown so much since I last saw them, and the variety and quality is really good!  Wendy Chappell, Executive Directory International College of Integrative Medicine
