letter-editorI would like to welcome you to the first issue of the Madison edition of "Nature’s Pathways" magazine.

This is an exciting time for us, as it marks a major step forward in the magazine’s growth, as well as our ability to deliver timely and accurate information to even more people who are invested in living a healthy lifestyle.

To give you a little history, Nature’s Pathways was established in 2006 in Northeast Wisconsin. Each month we provide our readers with many interesting and helpful articles they can use everyday — articles about nutrition, fitness, personal growth, wellness, relaxation, and organic and green living. Our message is making an impact, as we have experienced phenomenal growth in the last four years.

One thing you’ll notice about "Nature’s Pathways" that differs from other publications is that much of the editorial content that fills our pages is submitted by our advertisers. Because they’re in the business of providing goods and services in the healthy living industry, they are the subject matter experts. Our readers appreciate having access to information provided by local businessmen and women with a vested interest in the health of their patrons and the communities in which they live. It is our hope that as the Madison edition of "Nature’s Pathways" grows, you will not only learn more about how you can live a healthy life, but also about the businesses in your community that you can turn to as trusted resources.

So let me know what you think! We always welcome comments, story suggestions and input — good, bad or otherwise. Please feel free to email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
