of warm wishes and congratulations you have given since this event. The name
change will be official soon, and the office is updating paperwork, handouts,

her husband's new job in Louisiana, Dr. Holston Singh will be taking a multiple

much needed professional writing on natural medicine, in conjunction with
mentoring Dr. Liz Cavin, who will join Options Naturopathic Clinic in September
in her place.

Dr. Cavin has decided to move to Ohio to develop her interest in the European
homeopathic method Dr. Holston Singh uses. While Dr. Cavin is here,

the ongoing care of existing patients, as well as training Dr. Cavin
in the specifics of Dr. Gerard Gueniot's methods, the master of the
French pluralist method of homeopathy and natural medicine Dr. Holston
Singh intends to elucidate in her writing.
