Arizona in August presents several challenges when it comes to the heat, as we all know. We’re talking about some of Mother Nature’s ideas for keeping cool in “Beat the Heat”, plus how to properly store marijuana products in this weather—and even how to make tasty cooling treats to help our cats and dogs stay cool.
Our major focus this month is on biological dentistry. Learn about the benefits of whole-body dentistry and hear from several local dentists and resources who can help you make the best choice for the health of your mouth—and, subsequently, the rest of your body. And yes, you can safely get dental work done during this crazy time. Both Dr. Jeanne Anne Krizman (page 16) and Dr. Elahe Wissinger (page 18) tell us how they’re putting the safety of patients and staff first—especially during such a critical time.
We wanted to have a little fun this summer, so last month Natural Awakenings Tucson started the “Summer in Tucson” Photo Challenge. We had many great submissions from locals who shared with us what their summer in Tucson looks like. The top five photos are absolutely breathtaking, and we need your help to pick the winner. Check out the photo finalists and get more details on voting on page 11.
Calling all local businesses! Would you like to become a distribution point for Natural Awakenings magazines? It’s free, and a fun way to help support our healthy living community in the Tucson area. COVID-19 has shifted where we are able to distribute magazines, so we are getting creative—and we are always looking to expand our distribution in any case. More locations making our free magazine available means more people having access to the many wonderful healthy resources in Tucson.
Speaking of amazing resources, have you checked out our website lately? Our newly revamped website has tons of web-only offerings. The website is intended to be a go-to resource for healthy living information, local calendar events and local business listings in Tucson, as well as access to our digital magazine. Basic listings are free, and we welcome participation from the entire community. If you are interested in living healthy and happy and you’re in the Tucson area, NaturalTucson.com is made for you!
Stay safe, stay cool and take care of one another.
