Women’s Wellness is in the spotlight this month at Natural Awakenings Tucson.

Meet Anna Cabeca, triple board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, integrative medicine, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine, on page 12. “The girlfriend doctor” shares insight from her 30 years of experience helping women with hormonal balance and sexual health.

We also hear more wisdom from Cabeca and other experts in our feature story, “The Road to Hormonal Harmony” (page 17), which dives more deeply into what it takes to get and keep our hormones in balanced harmony. From nutrition and gut health recommendations to fertility factors, there is a lot of helpful information here for women of all ages.

For an interesting take on the polarity shift happening in the world and the crucial role of women during this time, read the words of Lance J. Morris, NMD on page 20. As we celebrate not only women, but mothers, this month, Ana Tanase, MD shares some thoughts on the difficult transition process from woman to mother, on page 22. In “Unmasking Your Authentic Self” on page 23, Deb Beroset muses on the ways that we can unlock our truest, best self when we learn to overcome the fear of vulnerability.

But that’s not all! Check out articles on the benefits of dance classes for physical and mental wellness (page 24), learning to balance gluten in our diets (page 26), local artist Terry Dietz (page 14) and more. As always, don’t forget to check out even more great content online at

Be well,
