Hello Milwaukee!

I am very excited to share with you the November issue of Natural Awakenings magazine.  This issue highlights several themes including eco-living to support a sustainable and less stressed lifestyle along with inspiration for a healthy and vibrant holiday season. We include the third annual Local, Sustainable Wellness Holiday Gift Guide that features products and practitioners who value your wellness needs and our community alike. The Holiday Gift Guide begins on page 23.

For the holiday hosts, we have some plant-based holiday recipes in our Conscious Eating article (p. 30) and ran out of space, so check out and click on Conscious Eating for a ton of delicious plant-based recipes as well!

For the pet lovers and future pet parents, we talk about responsible pet adoption in the Natural Pet department (p. 36) and include a local Eco Tip for winter snow removal that is safer for pets (p. 15).

For those who keep moving or aspire to be active, we share holiday workout tips to stay motivated (p. 22) and green fitness ideas (p. 20).

We spotlight two inspiring women, Chandra Houser of Natural Escape, LLC (p. 16 of print magazine) and Christa Christiansen of Restorative Laser Therapy (p. 17 of print magazine) to hone in on natural detox strategies and pain relief, respectively.

At Natural Awakenings, we strive to support you, your family and our community however we can. We offer the latest evidence-based information to foster our mental,  physical and spiritual health in every issue.

We are proud to share businesses and providers who may provide just what you need, whether it’s pain relief, stress relief or finding balance. Please take your time to observe our advertising partners, as they are the reason Natural Awakenings can continue to educate, empower and connect our community each month. I can promise that each of our partners offers something that can improve our lives. Please be sure to tell them you saw them in Natural Awakenings.

Thank you deeply for your support this holiday season.

In gratitude,

Jordan Peschek, RN-BSN, Publisher
