“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” —Jim Rohn

It is with this quote in mind that Nature’s Pathways has made a big leap in altering something that we have always held close to our hearts: our logo!

After 11 years in print, we shifted to a new size, improved print quality and upgraded paper in January, and we began assessing ourselves from the inside out. We are so grateful to continue to be in your homes, offices and storefronts each month, and like in any lasting relationship, we want to keep things fresh and exciting.

We’re always appreciative to also be able to do so by providing the kind of content we ourselves like to read: insightful, educational and relevant. Our June issue is full of exactly that: from articles on proper sunscreen usage to revelations on why fitting in fitness is important.

Dr. Martin Rudd and Suzanne Lawrence of UW Colleges Northeast Region grace our cover and on page 28 tell us all their Continuing Education program offers our communities. We were blown away by the variety, and think you will be too!

Whether it’s an outside to inside transformation or vice versa, we hope you take time to reflect on what might need a little makeover in your life — we’d love to hear your stories on social media.

When you visit me for one of the following services of reflexology, aroma touch, reiki, detox wraps, aromatherapy or help with weight management you will find that I can incorporate therapeutic essential oils within all of them.

Many of us rely on sunscreen to protect our skin from burns, cancer and premature aging, but a good number of people may not be getting the expected benefits. Why? Because sunscreen won’t work as it should if you don’t use it properly! When to use sunscreen The Skin Cancer…
I am what is known in my circle as a mandala maniac (pun intended). Mandala means “sacred circle” in Sanskrit, and I fell in love with the particular process I learned back in 2010. My friend Ellen had been talking about going to mandala class and meditating on her mandala,…
Higher health care and insurance costs require us to take charge of our health. The good news is that new programs are emerging to control cost and improve health. A few years ago a client called about coverage for monthly cholesterol screenings. His doctor wanted to put him on a…
“You want me to coach soccer? I don’t know anything about soccer! You wouldn’t want me to be a coach.” As a Youth Sports Director, this is something I often hear. Parents think they are not qualified to be a coach because they feel they don’t have the knowledge necessary…
How would you know? As you get older, your appetite decreases naturally. Are you eating more good fat? That is a good thing; however, it can make you feel full and lead you to eat less. The same is true of using gelatin, a good thing, but it makes you…
Solar panels, wind turbines, electric vehicles — they’re everywhere. Renewable energy that we can use for electricity, hot water, space heating and transportation is not the fuel of future/fantasy-based sci-fi movies. It’s the fuel of today.

Because insulin is a major hormone, it is impossible for the body to balance its minor hormones (estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, for example) until insulin metabolism is balanced first. Being insulin resistant puts a woman at a much greater risk for many other conditions including diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, breast…
