A campaign of wellness

The political season is in full swing. Politics have made their way into just about every inch of everyday life: from the radio to television to the neighbors’ yards and bumper sticker collections.

With all the stump speeches and promises being made, we here at Nature’s Pathways thought we’d get in on the act. No, we’re not running for office, but we do want to play an important role in your life — and maybe even change it for the better.

Our vow

So here it is, our very own campaign to become a force of wellness and positivity.

Our mission is simple. The Nature’s Pathways team is dedicated to making our world better.

Our goal is to empower our expert authors — and you — to make a difference. We know that a strong community is key to accomplishing this, which is one reason we’re such staunch supporters of local business. Above all else, we are committed to providing you and those you care about the information needed to make educated decisions about fitness, nutrition, organic and sustainable living, and more!

We urge you to join us in this vision. Take a look through the pages of this month’s magazine. Here you will find excellent examples of how much our team and authors care about making a difference, as well as oodles of resources and information to help you achieve your own personal wellness goals.

Your call to action

Before you vote next month, it’s a good idea to take stock of your own values and see how they compare to those of the candidates in your local and state races. Now’s also a great time to take stock of how you yourself are living your values. Do you practice what you preach? Have you encouraged those in your community to be well?

If not, now is the time to get involved. Share your knowledge and resources with others in need.

Offer a copy of this magazine to friends, family and neighbors and discuss what you’ve learned. Join the dialogue on Nature’s Pathways’ Facebook page or on Twitter.

Remember: We can have a better world. We just need to work for it.

With a baby on the way and our move to a new home complete, we knew we needed to clean our floors. The thought of our infant crawling around on pesticide- and dirt-infested carpets (the old owners wore shoes in the house) was frightening. However, the thought of loading our…
After last winter, no one wants to think about it, but it’s time for cold, snow and ice. Weather experts predict a very volatile 2014-2015 winter for northeast Wisconsin, with temperatures fluctuating 30 to 40 degrees in just a few days. Frequent changes like that make it difficult to plan…
We hear the phrase “farm to table” a lot more recently, but still not lot in our area. I strive to eat healthy at home, support local farmers and businesses, and eat organic as much as possible. When dining out, however, that proves to be a bit more difficult —…
All starches are carbohydrates. Starch does not occur alone, it is combined with nutrients. Starch itself has no nutrients but is a carrier for various nutrients. Foods high in starch include potatoes, rice and grains ground into flour. When grains are ground and the bran and germ is removed, what…
Gift giving is one of the best ways to spread a little happiness in life. These days, though, finding the perfect gift can be quite the challenge! Thankfully there is a fun business you can support locally to find that perfect gift. This store has made it its mission to…
Most of us associate orange and black as Halloween colors. Maybe even a little purple. But green? Think green this Halloween and incorporate “reduce, reuse and recycle” into your Halloween festivities. Halloween is great fun for children and adults, so skipping the holiday altogether (the ultimate reduction) is likely out…
I love to write articles that are informative and upbeat. The best I can do with the topic of suicide is to be informative in hopes that knowledge will be helpful to those who are at risk and their families and friends. The topic of suicide recently came to the…
She is a busy woman; she’s the wife, the mom, the nurse, the teacher, the cook, the cleaner and the taxi driver. She’s got it all together, riding high on life and feeling on top of the world! But wait, look closely: her hair is thinning and looking a bit…
Can you tell me the last time that you saw your dentist and had your whole health addressed? Did you ever have the feeling that your needs really weren’t understood? I have had the same experience. Our goal when we see our patients is to understand their needs from head…
Fall colors are at their peak throughout Wisconsin right now, making it one of the most beautiful times of the year. While that means great opportunities for photographers, sightseers and other outdoor enthusiasts, it has a different meaning for homeowners — back pain due to leaf raking. Every fall, thousands…

Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune condition that differs from a wheat allergy, although the two are sometimes used interchangeably. When people with CD eat foods that contain gluten, it creates an immune-mediated toxic reaction that causes damage to the small intestine and does not allow food to be properly…
