Natural Awakenings Tucson

October 2019 Letter From Publisher

Our October issue brings readers an abundance of health news that underscores the importance of paying attention to the little things—like teeth and gums. Our feature, “Mouth Matters: A Holistic Approach to Oral Health,” delves into the mounting evidence that this “doorway to the body” can usher in heart issues, inflammatory response and even Alzheimer’s if not well maintained. Writer Ronica O’Hara details the growing body of less invasive and less toxic approaches to dental care.

We’re also asking the important question: Is a Biological Dentist Right for You? On page 24, meet Dr. Jeanne Anne Krizman of Tucson Biological Dentistry, and learn what makes a practice like hers great for the care and keeping of your oral health.

In keeping with this inside-out, whole-body approach, writer Marlaina Donato offers insights into how one region of the body might affect a seemingly unrelated area in “Spinal Solutions: Chiropractic Care Yields Unexpected Results.” Thus, chiropractors can offer patients relief for a host of conditions, from asthma and digestion to headaches and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ).

Don’t forget that October is national Shelter Pet month and there are thousands of loving, healthy cats and dogs waiting to bring joy, companionship and yes, wellness, into your home.

Happy Fall!
