What Does Naturally Healthy Mean?

Jul 15, 2008
Natural health means letting your body function as it was intended to, without doing things that just get in the way of the natural processes. The body is a wonderful creation, it's design very complex, and in so many cases, has the capacity to completely heal itself, if allowed to.

Believe it or not, an imbalance in the body results to many illnesses. If you don't have enough vitamins, you lack vital minerals, have too many or not enough hormones, your body may not be in balance. The body's primary purpose is to keep us in equilibrium, or in a constant state of homeostasis. To make that happen, many intricate biological processes exist to achieve that.

I'm definitely not saying that modern science is not doing its part in healing people. However, even doctors nowadays are learning about holistic medicine and alternative therapies. They are now recognizing the power of the body's built-in defense and healing mechanisms.

Natural health is far more than just using certain products or eating whole foods. It's a lifestyle, and it's reflected in the way you live your life. Naturally healthy people have a joy about life and don't worry about or fear death. Their lives consist of wholesome, healthy foods, a positive attitude, regular exercise and a way of dealing with stress so it never really becomes an issue.

Naturopathic doctors, who are advocates of getting healthy the most natural way as possible, focus on finding the core reasons for diseases. Treatments that support the body's natural capability to heal itself are being used. They take into account all factors that may influence the body, and they have a holistic approach to healing the body. The mind, body and spirit is being considered because when any of these areas are weak or ill, it affects the others.

As medicines and medical care become less affordable, more people are turning to alternative medicine to cure their illnesses. They are using homeopathic treatments for most minor ailments, and are going back to using herbal remedies. Alternative therapies include massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture, and meditation. These therapies can lead to a harmonious life of natural health.

It appears like the more we advance technologically, the more we move away from anything natural, and that includes our health. The food we eat contains more chemicals than nutrients (which food group are Pop-tarts part of, anyway?), and our drinks are just chemicals in liquid form. We even have special equipments located in designated buildings to make us exercise.

All the programs I've created rely on the natural element. You can be cured without relying on pills or surgery, which seems to be the only two choices for traditional doctors. Take a good look at your life, your body and the state of health it's in, and ask yourself, "how far away have you strayed from natural health?
