Letter from Publisher
At this time last year I was writing my very first letter to you, in anticipation of my first issue as Publisher in March 2019. Admittedly, I was a little nervous about getting it “right.” About introducing myself in an already established, well-loved publication.
But now, in March 2020, I’m a year wiser and I’m thrilled to present this issue. I’m thrilled by ALL the possibility in the air here in Indy. Hemp and CBD are found practically everywhere; related policies in Indiana are somewhat confusing and dare I say, antiquated. As I compose this letter, policy changes are taking hold. But education is key to any issue, so I hope you enjoy (and learn something new from) this month’s features!
Julie Marshall reveals the healing powers of a popular hemp-based oil in “CBD’s New Frontier: Help for Mental Health.” Fellow Publisher Meredith Montgomery details the significance of CBD lab reports in “What’s Really in the Bottle.” And our beloved Indy local, Wendell Fowler, spells out “The ABCs of Cannabis, CBD, and THC.”
A growing number of Americans are moving away from meat and more toward plant-based foods, a development that comes with the promise of glowing health and expanding culinary horizons. Writer April Thompson shares the secrets of making this a seamless transition in “The Roots of Good Health: Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet.”
Be sure to check out all that Natural Awakenings has to offer this month, from pointers on pet diets to inspiring words from Meg Lundstrom about synchronicity and how profound it can be— if we’re open to it.
I dare you to be open to possibilities this month. Post your synchronicities and inspirations on Natural Awakenings Indy’s Facebook page. And “like” the page, while you’re there!
