Letter from the Publisher June 2017
Summertime has officially arrived here on the Suncoast, and you’ll want to feel your absolute healthiest to embrace all the warmth and vitality this season can offer. This month’s issue of Natural Awakenings is packed with alternative healing methods and practices to ensure that your well-being is at peak level––both during the summer and all year-round.
For example, our June feature article “Natural Remedies for Chronic Pain” breaks down the various holistic treatments to keep you strong and energetic throughout this glorious time of year. From nutritional supplements to yoga and meditation to chiropractic and acupuncture, the options to choose from are both diverse and effective.
Speaking of nutrition, it’s essential to nourish our bodies with fresh, colorful and seasonal fare. Our “Conscious Eating” article offers recipes and suggestions on how to create a “Patio Pizzeria” spread for your next backyard cookout. With crisp local produce and organic ingredients, your summer block-parties will be the talk of your neighborhood.
Finally, let’s not forget that June is Father’s Day, and this month’s issue is full of inspiration to show all the dads in your life just how much they’re appreciated. Our article “On Fatherhood” delves into the importance of stable father figures who make a positive impact on our hearts. After all, a devoted dad is worth celebrating!
That’s just a sneak peak of all the enrichment and enlightenment you’ll find tucked inside these pages. Whether on a road trip, at the beach or near the pool, I hope this issue provides enjoyable summer reading during these “dog days” ahead! And as always, feel free to submit comments, questions or feedback to [email protected]
