Making Connections for a Healthier You

You know mom, a sweet potato has a better macro count than rice,” said my son Ryan. I’ve never considered macros when choosing my diet, with my gluten-free and plant focused options I have enough on my plate (pun intended). However, my health conscious son is incorporating this strategy into his lifestyle, so I am picking up new tidbits of information. I always enjoy learning fresh perspectives on health and discovering innovative options.

To help you explore options for your healthy lifestyle, this edition is our very special annual Natural Living Directory. We’ve designed this issue to be your natural phone book; keep it year-round to easily access our community’s best natural living resources. You’ll find a wealth of options in our yellow pages to reference as a need arises. Build your own Dream Wellness Team by learning about local practitioners and products in the Wellness Profiles [page 20]. We hope this issue will inspire you to make healthy connections with the many local businesses in our community.

To start your New Year off with great ideas, we hope you will visit us at the Awaken Fair on January 27 in the Port Saint Lucie Civic Center. The day will be filled with interesting speakers and intriguing options in the exhibit hall. Stop by and say hi, we would love to meet you!

Since 2001, it has been our privilege to keep you informed with the latest in natural news. As I look back I can see that Natural Awakenings has grown to become the community’s multimedia resource for healthy living and a healthy planet. So, thank you to our readers and advertisers, as your support has made that growth possible. We are grateful to play a role in helping you make connections to help you achieve your health goals and we look forward to making even more connections in the year to come. The practitioners and businesses you’ll find in this directory are ready to support you in your resolutions for a healthier you – be sure to call on them.
