Natural Living

What is natural living and should we live that way? More than twenty two years ago that question came to my mind, specifically when negative health issues began to affect our bodies.

There are so many chemical laden products and foods out there, that it is sometimes overwhelming, trying to figure out what to do differently

In his book, “Food Sanity1,  Dr. David Friedman stated:
“In spite of all the differences of opinion, one thing every expert does seem to agree on is that the food we consume will either make us healthy or sick.

Hiding within our food supply are unnatural binders, fillers, preservatives, pesticides, hormones, artificial coloring and chemicals. So, if  You Are What You Eat , then we are fake!”

Do you ever think you want to detox your life, but don't feel like you have the time, or knowledge to put into it?   You can do it, natural living is not as difficult as it may seem.


How Do I Know
What Is Natural?

If you wonder what natural really means, here is a quick definition.

Natural :

  • Existing in or caused and produced by nature;                                                 not made or caused by humankind, NOT artificial.
  • Closely resembling and original, that is true to nature.

There Are So Many Questions
About Natural Living
????

Maybe you have asked yourself some of these questions and possibly more.

  • What is truly natural and safe and who can I trust?
  • Do we need to avoid processed foods and why?
  • Do we need to quit pop/soda?
  • Are there really foods that can improve my health?
  • Do we really need antioxidants and how do I boost my immune system naturally?
  • Don't we get enough nutrition from the food we buy at the store?
  • Are there really natural alternatives to chemical laden health products, that work?
  • Are there any products that are natural, safe and economical, for your whole family?
  • Has anyone personally tried solutions and natural products, tested for more than a few days or months? Years would be great.

Another question that is most important, especially in this time of uncertainty is.  Do you know your Creator and how much He loves you?


Chemicals
Vs.
Natural Living

Unfortunately, an overwhelming amount of the products we consume and use, on a daily basis, are not natural in the least.

Remember the definition we had previously about "natural" living?  A majority of chemicals  in many products, are definitely not natural, and should not be consumed or used on the human body.

Just one example:   The toxic food dye Yellow 5, containing Tartrazine, is shipped, with a fire diamond warning placard, and in a hazardous container, to be used by almost every industry that produces food, health, cosmetic, hygiene, pet and misc. products.(1)(2)

Too many of our foods and personal hygiene products are chemical laden and contain modified and artificial ingredients. In other words much of it is fake and definitely not natural.

In addition, many of these ingredients are actually addictive and/or harmful to our minds and bodies.

How Do We Live More Natural? 

There are products that are very natural and can be used for food, health / medicinal and various household uses. Some have been used successfully for hundreds of years.

Those are the ones I will focus on in this website. These are staples in our home, that we use on a regular basis. I try to never be without them since they are so useful, safe and healthy. Some are even edible as food, and tasty. Natural living is actually pretty enjoyable!

There are plenty of totally natural unadulterated products that every home could use and not have fear of toxins or harmful side affects.  Hopefully, you will be encouraged by feeling better and safer, as you live more naturally.

Each one of these natural ingredients are safe, versatile and provided by nature and every home would benefit by keeping them on hand.  Most of these are multi-purpose as well,  good for your internal health, outer body (hair, skin, and nail health), as well as home/household use. You can't beat that for versatility and economic savings.


Additional Natural
Nutrition

One final and very important product we have added to our diet is an all natural, whole food supplement.

Adding additional nutrition, that is pure and organic is important, since it is so difficult, to get all the nutrition we need in our foods today.  This is greatly due to all the synthetic additives in our foods and GMO crops.

We buy as many all natural products as possible, but don't always have access to everything we might need since we live in a small rural town. Being able to have a garden does help though. 

It is not possible for everyone to have a garden in their backyard. And unfortunately, even a garden does not always solve the problem of what might be lacking, in getting complete and natural nutrition.

So for that very reason, we use a natural whole food supplement.
