Natural Awakenings Northwest Florida

The Transformative Power of Knowledge

Jul 30, 2023 08:40AM ● By Scott Chase

As the warm embrace of summer surrounds us, we’re delighted to present the August 2023 issue of Natural Awakenings. With each passing edition, our commitment to providing you with empowering information on how to naturally improve your health and well-being grows stronger. This issue marks a significant milestone for us, as we celebrate the publication of our 200th edition, spanning 17 years of publishing on the Emerald Coast. It is a testament to our shared journey toward holistic wellness and sustainable living.

Throughout the years, Natural Awakenings has been at the forefront of the wellness movement, serving as a beacon of light for those seeking a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. Our mission has always been to offer a wealth of knowledge and resources that empower individuals to take charge of their well-being —and make informed choices that benefit themselves and the world around them.

In this special edition, we reflect on the transformative power of knowledge and its positive impact on countless lives. We have witnessed a collective awakening, as more and more people embrace natural healing modalities, prioritize self-care, and cultivate a deep connection with the natural world. We are humbled to have been a part of this journey, and we remain committed to providing you with the most up-to-date information, expert insights, and personal narratives that inspire and uplift you.

One of the highlights of this issue is a local expert feature on page 16, on the use of prolotherapy to ease body pain with Dr. Sheila Mohammed, a renowned holistic practitioner and visionary leader in integrative medicine. Dr. Mohammed shares her insights on why prolotherapy injection therapy is fast becoming a preferred alternative to surgery to help repair injured tissues and relieve pain. Her wisdom is truly transformative, and we are honored to feature her in this landmark edition.

We’re also excited to share more in-depth details regarding our upcoming 7th annual Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo which returns to Fort Walton Beach September 9 and 10. 

At the heart of this event, hosted by Natural Awakenings magazine, is a celebration of holistic health, encompassing all aspects of mind, body and spirit. The event showcases a diverse range of practices, therapies, and products, focusing on natural and alternative approaches to healing and self-care. Exhibitors across the holistic health spectrum will gather at the expo, presenting a vast selection of products and services. Read more about it on page 14.

This month’s issue also features an array of articles that cover a wide range of topics, from the benefits of lifelong learning and group fitness to the joys of aquariums and natural relief for acne.  

In celebration of our 200th edition, we invite you to join us in a collective intention for a healthier, happier and more sustainable future. Together, we can create a world where holistic well-being is accessible to all, and where our connection to ourselves, each other, and the Earth is nurtured and honored.

Thank you for being a part of the Natural Awakenings community. Here's to the next 200 editions and beyond!

With love and gratitude,

Scott & Daralyn
