Natural Awakenings Northwest Florida

Letter From The Publisher: July 2024

As we find ourselves in the heart of summer, July brings a unique sense of patriotism and community. It's a time to celebrate the beauty of our nation and the principles that make it strong—freedom, unity, and a collective commitment to a healthier, more sustainable future. This issue of Natural Awakenings is filled with insights and inspiration to help us all honor these values in our daily lives.

On page 12, we delve into Chemical-Free Weed Control, offering eco-friendly solutions to maintain your gardens without harmful substances. It's a beautiful way to honor the land and keep our environment safe for future generations.

Ayurvedic Seasonal Eating, on page 14, guides us in nourishing our bodies in harmony with the seasons. This practice supports personal health and well-being while connecting us to the timeless traditions of holistic care.

In our feature article on page 18, we interview Mark J. Tager about his innovative ap- proaches to integrative health. His work exemplifies the pioneering spirit driving our nation's progress in medicine and wellness.

Please turn to page 20 for Nourish Skin From Within, where we explore how diet and lifestyle choices can enhance our natural beauty, reinforcing that proper health radiates from the inside out.

As we celebrate our country's milestones, we must recognize the Unseen Milestones in our personal lives. On page 24, we reflect on acknowledging and cherishing these personal victories.

The bounty of our farms is a testament to our nation's agricultural heritage. On page 26, discover Farm Foods in a Capsule, a revolutionary way to capture the nutrition of farm- fresh produce, making it accessible to everyone.

For a fun-filled way to enjoy the season, check out Summer Splash on page 28. Whether at the beach, the pool, or a local park, these activities are perfect for making the most of summer's long, sunny days.

In times of division, simple acts of kindness can heal and unite. Page 30 of The Kindness Cure reminds us of the power of compassion and how small gestures can make a big impact.

Education is the cornerstone of our nation's future. Planting Seeds of Knowledge on page 32 highlights innovative educational approaches that foster a lifelong love of learning and stewardship of our planet.

Finally, page 34 has a delightful piece on Taking Dogs for a Swim. It's a heartwarming reminder of the joy and companionship our pets bring into our lives, enhancing our sense of community and well-being.

As we celebrate this patriotic season, let us remember that our strength lies in our inde- pendence and interdependence. By caring for ourselves, each other, and our environment, we honor the spirit of our nation.

Wishing you a joyous and healthy July,

Scott & Daralyn
