Healing Mars by Marcella Pabros-Clark
Healing Mars is a multi-media odyssey dealing with Marcella Pabros' ongoing battle with rheumatoid arthritis.
Marcella weaves together live music, dance, human drama, and tongue-in-cheek comedy to expose her life as she unearths the probable causes of her body's dis-ease. Will returning to her ethnic dance roots help cure her? Will her prayers be answered? Will she finally have to abandon her love of good wine? Healing Mars is not only entertaining, but a way for Marcella to encourage others to follow more holistic approaches to healing themselves. As America is poised at the brink of change in its healthcare system, this work brings into sharp focus the need for integrative medical approaches. Her work is timely, relevant, and accessible.
