From the time you were a small child you had a connection with the natural world. Mother Nature has always been there for you providing whatever you needed. Reconnect to restore your body’s innate intelligence for natural healing.
“The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.” ~ Paracelsus
As a child you probably enjoyed playing outdoors on the grass and in the dirt. It turns out that this is how you develop a strong immune system. You need the friendly bacteria that's in the soil to have a healthy microbiome in your gut. Make a habit of standing or sitting with your bare skin touching the earth as much as possible, and breathe deeply.
Plant a garden in your backyard, grow herbs in pots on a windowsill or become part of a community garden. Be sure to connect with local organic farmers and support them at your local farmer's markets. Nature is the most reliable source of healing foods.
Glyphosate, the main chemical ingredient found in pesticides, was actually patented as an antibiotic. Not only does this chemical destroy nutrients in food, it also kills the soil. We need to restore a healthy eco-system on our planet to support natural healing and move away from dependence on chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Choose to buy and eat organic. Not only is this good for your health, it's good for the health of the soil. Chemical farming practices are not sustainable. It would only take 16% of the population to buy organic to end the demand for pesticides and GMO crops.
Your gut is like a personal garden that depends on maintaining a healthy microbiome. 70% of your immune system is in your gut and that means the microbiome is the foundation of human health. Tend your garden well and you will reap what you sow.
90% of serotonin, the feel-good hormone, is produced in your gut. If you want to feel your best you'll have to balance your inner eco-system. From the air you breathe to the water you drink, and the food you eat, choose the best quality to enjoy your best life.
Fermented foods are good for your gut. Try sauerkraut, kombucha, kimchi, miso, tempeh, coconut milk yogurt and kefir to experience the benefits of natural probiotics. These cultured foods improve digestion, boost immunity and improve cognitive function.
