Letter From the Publisher

February 2019 has arrived and with it another edition of Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay. As always, this issue overflows with insightful news and views at the forefront of the natural health movement. The exciting growth in this vast community of like-minded people is a pleasure to behold. It is a holistic trend fueling hope and well-being in communities here and nationwide.

Each February, the folks at the American Heart Association stimulate heart health awareness and education nationwide, working with thousands of grassroots volunteers and local organizations to spread the word. In keeping with this focus, this month’s Natural Awakenings highlights cutting edge viewpoints from experts in the field.

Writer Lisa Marshall’s "Heart of a Woman: The Right Choices Keep It Strong" (page 30) offers stimulating insight and is a welcome reminder of the healing possibilities available through the holistic approach.

On page 38, writer Avery Mack’s "Recipes a Heart Will Love" presents choice heart wellness recipes from Carol D’Anca, board certified nutrition practitioner and author of Real Food for Healthy People: A Recipe & Resource Guide.

In "Amazing Embrace" (page 36), writer April Thompson explains how hugs of appreciation uplift us in body, mind and spirit. It’s a timely thought, what with Valentine’s Day this month. There are many ways to express appreciation and much for which to be grateful.

With an open heart and mind, read on.
