Letter from Publisher

I believe we all know someone who is either battling cancer, is in remission, or has passed away from cancer. It’s mind-boggling to all of us: what works, what doesn’t work, and the stress of not knowing the answer adds to the disease. We have to really listen to our bodies, work with naturopathic doctors who focus on prevention, and customize what foods and modalities work for our individual needs.

       Being a person who loves and cares for the ocean and the marine life, I recently watched a Netflix documentary called Chasing Coral. As I put this letter together, I would call it the cancer of coral. Both beauty and death in vast quantities are portrayed all over the world’s coral reefs. I feel like cancer is another man-made environmental crisis that we have created.

       Hidden under the ocean, it’s out of sight and mind for most of us. Like mental health, it’s the last thing we look at because it’s hidden deep inside and we don’t take action until it attacks our physical health, much like dying coral affects our entire eco system.

       I finally enrolled in Julie Chippendale’s Mindfulness Class after promoting her and her class for seven years. My main goal is to enhance my meditation skills and learn to live in the moment.

       While working on my inner growth, I’m also working on Natural Awakenings’ growth and rethinking how I distribute and promote my publication to San Diego. I am vastly increasing my distribution and lowering my advertising costs. My investment and time is ignited with my passion to spread the word of natural prevention and remedies that exist and to attract more community partners to participate in my publication. It takes a village to raise a publication and health awareness. I urge my readers, practitioners, healers and others of like-mind to join us in the crusade to save our loved ones and our planet.

Happy April my dear readers! As I type these words, I lie here with a strained lower back creating this monthly publication to my cherished audience.

Manifesting Miracles

Contemplating the stories we tell ourselves—about ourselves and our lives—and which ones we choose to believe has been on the forefront of my mind lately. As a writer, I know that a carefully chosen adjective can make the difference between whether somebody looks like a hero or a jerk. It’s the same thing with life.
