One of most potent weapons in our desire for holistic health, is adequate nutrition. This can be used to prevent and even reverse some conditions. It's now been proved beyond any reasonable doubt that a high percentage of diseases are lifestyle diseases-and that includes horrible diseases like cancer, heart disease etc.
According to a study by World Health Organization, smoking kills about 5.1 million people a year, world wide. Even second hand smoke kills about 600,000 people annually according to this same study!
What does that mean? It means a little change in our lifestyles can dramatically improve our health.
Inspite of the much vaunted wars on diseases, more people today are sicker than ever before. And the complications of obesity is a major factor-from diabetes, to heart disease; from brain impairment to respiratory problems etc.
Could it be that nature is a vast holistic healing center?
Nature might have hidden all the answers to our health problems in species of plants and animals that we see everyday.
Our challenge is to find these holistic answers instead of the harmful chemicals that make us sicker. Some of these medications are so dangerous that, if the diease does not kill you, the medications will
More and more, we are finding the holistic health benefits of everyday products-
benefits verified by rigorous scientific researches, not anecdotes:
But a lot of this knowledge is not really new. Read more about the holistic health choices that we have here.
And we do have choices, even amid the onslaught of slick advertising
We'll be sharing information about these choices with our readers.

Even a casual reading of some ancient texts reveals some startling holistic health knowledge:
Attentive conversations with our elders can yield a treasure trove of natural healing information. A lot of old wives' tale have been proven right
Now what does this tell us?
...that if we would just listen, watch and respectfully explore nature, we would discover many beneficial elements in our quest for holistic health
This is why it is imperative to preserve all the species and protect their habitats-who knows what kind of all natural health remedies they can yield! After all, most body of what is knowable, consists of what we do not know
Experts in various fields, not just in health, are now turning to nature's wisdom to learn. People-from the fields of enginnering, to pure physical sciences- are turning to biology and nature's design to improve their own designs. This was the agenda recently at a meeting of scientists at Long Beach Convention Center, in California.
Take the case of these two engineers-Geoffrey Spedding of the University of Southern California, and Joachim Huyssen of North-West University in South Africa: Setting out to find the ideal flying shape, using their expertise in aerodynamics:
...the best shape the pair found, would have a bullet like body rather than the elongated tube seen in commercial planes.....,the end result looked remarkably like a bird
Isn't that something! Nature had already perfected the ideal flying shape!! That's what can be learned by studying nature's wisdom. They too have gone holistic!So, you say!
A better understanding of aerodynamic design would result in better plane design. These crafts will be more fuel efficient. A fuel efficient craft burns less fossil fuel, produces less pollution, there by reducing the damage done to the planet and to our good health
So, that's why we should care
Seemingly unrelated fields can damage or contribute to our good health, depending on the choices we make
If that's not surprising enough, a study at Nottinham University has discovered some chemicals in the brain tissue of roaches that may have implications for human health. One of these chemicals can kill 90% of E. coli bacteria it comes in contact with!
Who would have thought you could mention roaches and holistic health in the same sentence!!
There is a running joke that says, that when the world ends-most probably as a result of human recklessness- the only creature standing, would be the roach. I mean, this scum never dies
So, we need to keep on learning. Some of the things we think we know might even be wrong. Doctors, for years got it wrong as to the cause of most ulcers, until an Australian doctor set them straight.
Nature's wisdom is so vast, and the potential for new holistic healing knowledge so tantalizing, that we would be foolish not to invest whatever it takes. And all these are around us waiting for our discovery.
I know it sounds like a broken record, but you are responsible for your health. And your good health, is best assured by your choice of a holistic health lifestyle
Do you go for harsh chemicals when you're not feeling well, or do you seek a holistic healing option whenever practical?
