The Alternative Medicine section has been infused with several sabbaticals' worth of research and content. It presents the many facets of alternative medicine in the Philippines: the healers, the herbs, the varied treatment modalities, from age-old folk medicine to the urban-fringe. It has been a most interesting study, at the same time, a serendipitous discovery of a fascinating window into a people and its cultures.

The compilation on herbal medicinal plants is the centerpiece of the StuartXchange site. It has grown to more than 1,900 herbal medicinal plants with botanical information, folkloric uses and scientific studies. The section frequently updates content and digital photos.

Ms. Leila Santiago-Flores contributes the section on "Philippine Herbs and Animals" - a compilation on herbal use in small animals, sourced from published articles, unpublished theses, and interviews.

EDSA WORKS Four EDSA-related works: My sister Angela Stuart-Santiago's works on EDSA are uploaded in their entirety: (1) "Walang Himala! Himagsikan sa Edsa,"  the first complete version in Filipino of the EDSA People Power Revolution and (2) "The Original People Power Revolution." If time has blurred the details, these definitive literary works on the 1986 revolution, through a blow-by-blow chronological style of storytelling, will bring Edsa back to the forefront of your consciousness. (Also, check out Angela Stuart-Santiago's Book Reviews and commentaries at Publications.) Two are by Godofredo Umali Stuart: Edsa Shrine and EDSA 2008, an ephemeral work of prose and art.
