Editors Letter

We had a vision to create a magazine that is different, innovative, authentic, stylish, inspiring, health-conscious, entrepreneurial and relevant to the women of Columbus. In this issue, our extraordinary team is bringing you a group of passionate game changers with a focus on wellness.

Our cover story is on Debbie Penzone, the perfect choice because she oozes positivity and inspiration. She is genuine, grounded and determined. It was an absolute joy featuring Debbie because she lives life with wellness and balance, focusing on creating beauty inside and out. We are proud to share her story.

We also featured Lubna Najjar, a local designer who has created a line of fitness clothing that has “made it” nationally and who is working on an innovative new fabric technology.

Furthering the focus on fitness, since eating a plant-based diet has been linked to lower obesity and a decrease in the likelihood of disease, we have featured some of our favorite vegetarian and vegan dishes available in restaurants near you. You can also get the skinny on the pros and cons of freezing or melting fat.

A healthy body is the product of a healthy mind. Visit a True Nature Holistic Retreat to find a place to relax and gain balance right here in Ohio.

Sometimes our bodies don’t work well. Our hands are critical to almost everything we do, but injuring them can be debilitating. Read about frequent hand injuries, symptoms and methods of prevention.

Cancer touches all of our lives. Our article about Kim Tolnar’s journey with leukemia highlights huge advances in cancer research. The recent approval of immunotherapy is revolutionary and is on the path to saving lives.

Children dealing with cancer and other chronic illnesses now have something to make their lives a little easier. Lotsa Brave People is a Columbus company that has created adaptive apparel for children with chronic illnesses. Cary Hanosek’s experience gave her the courage and innovative spirit to make it happen.

The Wexner Center for the Arts will feature an exhibition on the work of Mickalene Thomas who is inspiring a change in the way women of color are depicted in art.

We hope you enjoy this issue of Buckeye Lifestyle and find inspiration in adding wellness to your days. As always, thank you for taking the time to read this issue.
