Women's Health Edition

Hello, and welcome to our May edition. We’re enjoying one of the longest spring seasons in memory, with bright, breezy afternoons and cool evenings. Though my vegetable garden isn’t as far along as I’d like, the cooler weather can stay as long as it pleases.

Women’s health is our main theme this month, with integrative wellness and the top five health concerns for women taking center stage.

Women and men benefit from plant based bioidentical hormone therapy. Amethyst Wellness owner Amy Coopersmith is hosting a virtual seminar on May 14, discussing the use of BHT therapy for men and women. See the article on page 16 and contact Amethyst Wellness to register for the seminar.

Healthy homemade baby food is easy and rewarding to make. Large batches may be preserved by freezing or canning. It is incredibly rewarding to make your baby’s first solid foods from quality, organic ingredients.

Preparedness is top of mind for many during uncertain times. Our Healing Ways section explains how to create a homeopathy first-aid kit. Plant based cures may benefit a variety of conditions including muscle strain, minor burns, swelling, allergic reactions and even puncture wounds.

With 6 million cats diagnosed with cancer each year, cat owners will want to dive into our Natural Pet article discussing prevention, diagnosis and treatment options. Cats are extremely resilient and respond well to complementary treatment.

As the community continues to recover from the pandemic, our event calendar grows a little each month. I look forward to meeting readers at events this month.

With light and love,
