This video tape, given at a “Holistic Health Conference” in 1979 is a a summary of some of the main points in Precision Nirvana regarding the need for integrating “holistic health” and precision observation: i.e., asking how many want to hear a talk on “segmented” health?  The slides are all from Precision Nirvana and can be viewed there as they are not clear on the tape. Enjoy.
