School schedules are winding down, tourists are beginning to arrive on our beaches, and summertime is just around the corner! This glorious season calls for long afternoons in the outdoors, backyard cookouts on the weekends and being our healthiest, most energetic selves. Along those lines, this month’s issue of Natural Awakenings is packed with ideas and inspiration to make your summer one to remember. Let’s take a peek inside!
First, we’re spotlighting “Women at Work Healing the World” in recognition of the dynamic female healers, both in our community and beyond, who have dedicated their life’s mission to helping others discover physical, mental and spiritual wellness. Find out how these women are reshaping healthcare through an integration of modern technology, ancient wisdom and holistic practices. We’re fortunate to live in a part of the country where these are embraced, and this article offers insight on how alternative medicine practitioners are leading the charge to make such modalities more accessible everywhere.
Next, in keeping with our vibrant seasonal theme, check out this month’s “Green Living” feature on “Summer-Hardy Herbs” to enhance your garden, spice up a nutritious meal or even add flavor to happy hour gatherings on the patio––because who can resist fresh mint in their mojito, right? Also, don’t miss our “Conscious Eating” article which offers a breakdown of the healthiest plant-based milks to fuel your summer activities such as hemp, coconut, rice, almond and more. Finally, we can’t forget about the furry members of our families, and this season is perfect for romping around with them outside. This month’s “Natural Pet” article discusses how off-leash playtime for dogs will benefit their health and quality of life.
That’s just a snapshot of everything inside this issue, and I hope you’ll find enlightenment and pure enjoyment within these pages. As always, please send comments, feedback or questions to [email protected]. Here’s to a wonderful beginning to all your summer adventures!
