The concept of support—connecting and working together—can be woven into so many aspects of a healthy lifestyle and healthy planet. After all, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We do much of this instinctively: supporting our loved ones, ensuring our kids are clean and fed, working as a team to complete a project. The power of connection is imperative at a broader scale, too: connecting holistic health with contemporary medicine, for example. The optimal health of our society is not found solely in medications and medical care, nor is it exclusively found in natural and alternative methods. The power lies in the intersection of both.

Natural Awakenings has a mission to improve lives at an individual, community and global level. This stems from the power of connection. We are a resource to inspire you and your family to help each other be your best selves. Natural Awakenings is a resource to help bridge the gap in our siloed healthcare system: to help promote the unity of modern medicine with natural and holistic methods that promote health and prevent disease. And we are a resource to guide our culture to a more sustainable, eco-conscious society at a global level.

We achieve all of these goals through our mission to educate, empower and connect. We educate our community with the latest health and wellness news, empower others to take control of their health and connect people to each other, to nature and to the many health-focused businesses right here in Milwaukee.

We may not be able to change the whole world, but we can change our corner of the world. And we all know that change starts with a single step.

We implore you to support each other, support our advertisers and support the health of your mind, body and the planet. We are here to help. Hold on to this issue all year as a guide to health resources in our community. The businesses and practitioners in the inaugural Health and Wellness Directory issue are ready to support your journey to a healthier you.

Here’s to Health,

Jordan Peschek, RN-BSN
