Letter From the Publisher

Twenty-five years ago in Naples, Florida, healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman launched the first Natural Awakenings magazine. Today this publication serves more than 70 markets nationwide, encouraging a thriving natural health community of more than 3 million readers (see page 26 for more on this).

The exciting scope of NA publishers serving local communities nationwide is a continuing sign of hope for the future. I’m so pleased to play a part in spreading the news. This January 2019 Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay will enlighten and soothe bodies, minds and spirits here and beyond.

This issue’s Healing Ways feature is entitled "Blood Chemistry" (page 36). This article by Natural Awakenings senior staff writer Linda Sechrist offers an insightful "roadmap" for understanding our life’s blood, especially in the context of holistic wellbeing.

In this month’s Conscious Eating department, author Marlaina Donato examines commonly held beliefs that block sensible eating habits for so many. In "Befriending Food: Embrace the Psychology of Eating" (page 38), Donato details some of the issues getting in the way of individual achievement in this respect. The article also offers inspiration for developing healthier eating habits on your own terms.

As always, this season on the west coast of Florida is a wonder to behold. Heavenly weather rules along with a community of like-minded others to enjoy.

With an open heart and mind, read on.
