Mile High Natural Awakenings


Sep 28, 2019 01:37PM ● By Terry Chriswell
While reading this October issue, you’ll notice that most of the magazine has a holistic focus. Holism is the interconnection of all parts as a whole; recognizing that each part also affects the whole. 

The feature Mouth Matters on page 16 discusses the rise of Biological Dentistry, which connects oral health to an individual’s overall wellness, and often works in concert with other physicians and specialists. 

Nearly every business advertising in Natural Awakenings takes a holistic approach.

Other holistic articles discuss hot springs (p 6); doing nothing (p 20); and chiropractic (p 24). Slow food (p 22) and flossing (p 11) deal with holism on a personal and planetary scale. Did you know dental floss and its packaging are horrible for the environment? There are great alternatives mentioned in the eco tip already on their way for us to try! Thank God for entrepreneurs willing to think outside the box and help solve the biggest issues facing mankind.
In the Circular Economy (p 19), one such entrepreneur transformed food waste into fertilizer pellets!

Even “Paws to Consider” (p 14) is holistic in terms of all living things. Imagine a world where every healthy animal found a home? If you can adopt an animal companion from a wonderful rescues and shelters, the rewards will be all the sweeter. Fostering’s rewards are wonderful, too.

We’re taking the positive vibes online in a big way with our revamped website and Community Content Engine!

To YOUR Health and Happiness, Doug & Terry
