Planting Good Health
Every month as I compile the magazine to get it ready for print, there are certain articles that speak to me more than others. On occasion, the entire magazine aligns with my body, mind and spirit to create a synchronicity of information that I get super excited about.
This month is one of those months! So many articles speak to me personally, starting with our focus on plant-based diets. To call it a “diet” minimizes the importance of eating this way for life. It is truly a lifestyle, philosophy and way of being on this planet that can truly eradicate disease and support the Earth’s fragile ecosystem.
But eating a plant-based diet can mean different things to different people. In “The Roots of Good Health: Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet,” April Thompson shares the secrets of making a seamless transition. The most important step is to just simply start eating more plants, so don’t forget to check out this month’s recipes to help you make the switch with good taste.
Keeping in line with supporting healthy choices for body and planet, hemp is fueling high hopes among farmers, agricultural researchers, manufacturers and consumers for its use in a host of fiber-based products and its potential to combat climate change. Don’t miss Julie Peterson’s enlightening article, “Hemp Gets Hot: Meet the Hardest Working Plant on the Planet.” Meantime, Julie Marshall reveals the healing powers of a popular hemp-based oil in “CBD’s New Frontier: Help for Mental Health.”
Be sure to check out everything we have to offer this month, in print and online. Whether it’s greater balance you seek, a healthier lifestyle or just inspiration for your body, mind and spirit, Natural Awakenings is your ticket to creating a more fulfilling life for you and your family.
Peace and enjoy,
