By now we are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring, with all of its wondrous and magical qualities. In March, we can often begin to see the signs that better weather is on its way. We begin to feel restless inside our homes and dream of the days not far away when we can spend more time outside. It’s a time of burgeoning hope and renewal, longer days and more activity.
This month we are celebrating our six month anniversary of CoSozo Living. As you may have noticed, we’ve made a few changes that we think you’ll really like. While the changes may take a few months to fully incorporate, we think you’ll enjoy our new additions along the way, and we always welcome your feedback!
This month we’ve included new space in the back of the magazine to list your organization’s events as well as a section for classified ads - areas that you, our readers, told us that you were hoping to find within our pages. Contact us if you want more information about having your information within those areas in our upcoming issues.
In the upcoming issues, we will be incorporating both featured articles as well as contributed articles. So many great experts out there are looking for an avenue to share their experience and their knowledge that we know our readers will appreciate. We’re very excited to be able to include even more guest contributors. If you’d like more information on our Editorial Calendar for 2009 or our Writer’s Guidelines, stop by our website or send us an e-mail at editor@CoSozo.com. We’d love to hear from you!
Our focus this month is on things that are Oh So Natural, as well as to highlight some issues that aren’t natural, such as the irradiation of spinach. As we have recently experienced an outbreak of salmonella in peanuts, this article is particularly timely and should be interesting to anyone interested in food safety.
Our featured article this month is from Jessica English, a great natural childbirth resource and doula from Kalamazoo. Jessica has used her expertise and writing skills to describe the benefits of natural childbirth, which I think will be enlightening to many of our readers. Great article, thank you Jessica!
We also have some articles this month that highlight some therapies that are perhaps not as well known to the general population. The Alexander Technique is a body movement technique that is designed to improve the body’s performance and relieve pressure. The primary purpose of this technique is to introduce to the client new ways of identifying not only stress within their body but also to provide him/her with a new experience of his/her body.
The other technique that is perhaps not as well known is called Breema. Breema is a technique that appears to be quite profound for both the Breema practitioners as well as their clients. It is a body movement technique that is perhaps best described as a mix of meditation and supportive massage.
We also have an article on ginseng this month. While you may know a little about ginseng and what it is known for, this article will give you more information on the benefits as well as the side effects.
Fluoride is the focus of another of our articles, and can be a topic that can be somewhat controversial. Many of you may not be aware that fluoride is actually the most consumed drug in the United States today. I, myself, was surprised by that discovery!
We hope you enjoy this edition of CoSozo Living. We are excited by your feedback and your interest in the polishing touches we are putting on our processes and our publications. Be sure to check out our Contact Page to leave feedback or get more information!
