When Dr. Andrew L. Rostenberg isn’t practicing natural health, he is living it—he can often be found hiking in the mountains, rock climbing, reading, and practicing yoga. In his office at Red Mountain Natural Medicine, he draws from specialty training in advanced fields such as chiropractic kinesiology and clinical nutrition to engage clients in a holistic, noninvasive approach to health care. He adjusts clients’ spinal alignment during chiropractic care, diagnoses their conditions using applied kinesiology, and rehabilitates injuries with therapeutic exercises and equipment. He also supplies clients with science-based nutrition formulas designed to promote metabolic health or clear up any moss growing on their north sides.
A self-described lifelong learner, Dr. Rostenberg attends regular natural-health workshops and stays abreast of current medical research. His studies and techniques help him treat conditions ranging from food allergies and low blood sugar to fibromyalgia, cardiovascular disease, and depression.
As the villainous summer sun reduces lawns to a palette of browns and tans, the Diamond Lawns super team rushes onto the scene to restore them to a glistening emerald glow. They accomplish this heroic feat with regular maintenance, such as mowing, or seasonal responsibilities, such as planting flowers or sharpening the teeth on topiary dinosaurs. Their landscaping design can add retaining walls and waterfalls that blend seamlessly into the existing surroundings, and tree care, removal, or stump grinding ensures allied tree forts remain safe while the enemy is reduced to wood chips. To further protect the outdoor environment, Diamond Lawns eradicates plant-harming insects and rodents with treatments that are safe for kids and pets.

Little Feather Ranch is owner and manager Teri Hallman’s equine oasis amid the verdant expanse of Eagle, Idaho. There, horses trot outdoors in cool summer breezes and prance around the insulated indoor arena all through the year. A nearby 5-mile trail allows visitors to explore Eagle Island State Park on guided horseback rides.
Accredited by the Certified Horsemanship Association, Teri imparts riding skills in both Western and English styles. English riding entails a lighter saddle and more direct control over the horse’s reins, whereas the Western style requires a larger saddle, lax one-handed rein control, and an encyclopedic knowledge of John Wayne quotes. Little Feather’s boarding service treats horses to attentive care and a supply of grass and alfalfa hay grown onsite. While at the ranch, riders can peruse a line of exclusive handmade leather bags, Western shirts, and hat bands.
