Living Nutrition magazine was germinated in December of 1995 when, after publishing a small nutritional health newsletter, I audaciously decided to create “the greatest health-teaching magazine in the world.” My mentor Dr. T. C. Fry’s magazine from the 1980s, Healthful Living, was my inspiration. His taught health in an uncannily enlivening and graspable way which was totally captivating -- just what I needed after Dr. Fry helped save my life from a seemingly ruinous disease caused by an unhealthful lifestyle. Desiring to capture that dynamic and help transform the world, I forged a ahead with the first issue of Living Nutrition.
Since the first 24-page issue, the magazine grew and grew, as it attracted new designers, a team of networkers and the best natural health writers in the world. In he early 2000s, Living Nutrition became the United State’s first “raw food health” periodical to achieve store distribution and its circulation reached 12,000 with over 3,000 subscribers in 40 countries. The proliferation of the Internet was a boon for the “raw food movement” and natural health field and the magazine rode the wave to increasingly new heights.
In 2008, I changed the periodical’s name to Vibrance to brand it in a more universally appealing way which no longer reflected merely raw food nutrition, an image which was limiting its appeal. In 2009, with the world’s economic-ecological plight coming to a head, paper editions no longer became viable. In response to these conditions, the digital publishing revolution come to the rescue and I decided to publish the second issue of Vibrance exclusively as a digital e-zine, to the satisfaction of 99% of our faithful subscribers.
Vibrance continues to embody our purist philosophy of only teaching from a purist Hyguinic standpoint, and of promoting only truly healthful, essential, ecologically-positive products and services, as per the “healthful living” lifestyle tenets taught by Natural Hygiene. Vibrance’s content is in no way influenced by outside sponsors or advertiser; it is controlled solely by myself, the publisher/editor, in the spirit of uncompromising higher education about truthful health education.
Because of our purist stance is geared toward naturalism and not consumerism (as are most other periodicals), and because I will not allow governmental restrictions imposed by a nonprofit classification, nor advertising dollars or outside corporate influences from non-healthful entities, we have at times faced financial challenges producing the next magazine issue, which our team has gallantly persevered through. No matter what the economic climate has brought, the quality and energy of each new issue of Living Nutrition, and now Vibrance, has continued to improve and we look always forward to creating the next issue with an infusion of new energy.
