Coming soon in … alive: December 2019

Coming soon in … <em>alive</em>: December 2019

December brings the holidays, and in this issue of alive, we’re celebrating with a focus on natural health, as always, but also on healthy pleasures. The holidays bring great happiness for many, stress for some, and even sadness for others. This issue brings you a range of topics that speak to these themes and invites you to find your pleasure—the healthy kind.

We also explore the history of trees. Trees are an important symbol for the holidays, but they also provide healing, health benefits, and a tangible presence that appeals to and awakens our senses.

And of course, no holiday—or issue of alive—is complete without some inspiring recipes. In December, we’re offering readers a superfood holiday menu and some healthy holiday pairings that will bring tummies and taste buds pleasure all through the season.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the articles coming up in the December issue of alive.
