Restoration of a healthy and natural life
Once we realize how foreign our lifestyle has become, the question arises how to re-integrate the necessary parts of a healthy and natural life into our daily lives.If you break your leg, you will need crutches for a while.We also need crutches or a substitute when something natural is no longer available.
Many of these “crutches” have become so commonplace that we hardly recognize them anymore, e.g. glasses, contact lenses or laser-eye surgery,routinely performed for years now,to correct short-sightedness.A large part of our population would be massively impaired in everyday life without these substitutes.Our clothing as well is a “crutch”.Clothes were superfluous in a climate that provided human beings with sufficient heat. You have probably seen images of native tribes in the rainforest who do not need clothing to keep themselves warm. Clothing in other parts of the world also serves more of a social than a physical purpose. In our climate that is vastly different from our natural “habitat”, we have to adapt by covering ourselves with furs in order to protect ourselves from snow and ice. Clothing has become our modern fur, and without it we could not survive in many parts of the world.We should, however, not deceive ourselves into thinking that the climates in which we live are species-appropriate environments for us.
We must restore the fundamental conditions of such an environment in order to create optimal living conditions and improve our health. This is an entirely pragmatic endeavor and does not require elaborate explanations. When you are thirsty you drink. If you lack nutrients, you go about finding some. Your body does not care whether this is accomplished through food or food supplements. The main thing is that the body gets a sufficient supply of nutrients. If this can be achieved through natural means, all the better. All natural foods are superior to food supplements. All vitamin D formed through the skin is better than a vitamin D capsule. However, you should never deceive yourself into thinking that your body will simply compensate for the fact that you do not get enough food or sunlight!
Here are some very pragmatic recommendations for emulating a natural environment.
Much of it sounds trivial and simple – and yet we frequently neglect it.
