Letter From the Publisher
Tampa Bay’s weather is, again, awe-inspiring, tropical, and blessedly accompanied by loads of healing sunlight for which our shoreline is famous.
As always, our magazine is jam-packed with timely news and views from the growing natural health movement, with a special focus this month on topics that can help us successfully approach the cycle of life, beginning to end.
In “Sacred Passage: Conscious Dying as a Transformative Healing Journey” (page 24), Natural Awakenings senior staff writer Linda Sechrist reports on a topic of increasing discourse in the natural health field: that of palliative care initiatives treating death, not as something to fear, but as an event integral to the human experience. It is refreshing to learn of dignified, caring, compassionate practices helping people prepare for and talk about this important aspect of the life cycle.
“Keep Decay Away” (page 38) clarifies good sound reasons holistic dentistry helps children do best in terms of long- term tooth care and maintenance. It’s an entirely accessible approach with eye-opening insights on children’s dental health.
I’m really pleased with the response we’ve gotten from readers to our call for pet pictures to run on the pages of NA Tampa Bay. The response has been incredible! As a reminder: animal lovers are encouraged to email your favorite pet picture to [email protected] for possible inclusion in the magazine.
As always, open your mind and read on.
