Thoughts on Natural Health and Beauty from NaturalMatters.net
In the early part of the 20th century, a fascination with science and technology and the discoveries of various miracle drugs created a supreme confidence in medical science, so much so, we became detached from the principles of natural health previously enshrined in cultures all over the world.
When you consider the vast chemical cocktail we are all now exposed to, it is no great surprise that Auto-Immune and other degenerative diseases are spiralling out of control, even at the turn of the 20th Century heart disease and cancer were extremely rare. We can still find tribes of extremely long lived peoples who live a healthy life and enjoy excellent nutrition as Mother Nature intended. These include the Vilcabamba tribe of Equator who have an average cholesterol count 80 points lower than the US average; heart disease, cancer and diabetes are virtually unknown. The Hunza in Pakistan also live virtually disease free and are often seen working hard in the fields at the age of 120!
More and more, we understand the importance of treating the whole person. Our bodies have an innate ability to heal themselves when treated in a holistic way; the medical profession tend to treat symptoms in isolation, usually with synthetic, toxic substances that cause considerable damage to the immune system.
You can take simple steps to achieve better health for you and your family; good nutrition - eat organic where possible and avoid processed foods (please see the Food & Drink Section), avoid chemical toiletries, take the appropriate natural remedies for health conditions, include supplements to counteract the problems of mineral deficient soils in the western world, relax and exercise as much as possible and avoid the plethora of over the counter, synthetic medicines widely used.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE ALLIANCE FOR NATURAL HEALTH YOUR FREEDOM TO CHOOSE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS IS SERIOUSLY THREATENED - UNLESS YOU ACT NOW
EU legislation (and Codex) is seeking to restict our access to many of the leading-edge nutritional supplements we currently take for granted. The Alliance for Natural Health is the best-placed campaign organisation to contest this legislation.
The ANH is also leading initiatives to offset proposed limits on dosages and health claims through Codex and other EU legislation. These critical events in Europe are increasingly likely to lead to restrictions in the US and elsewhere in the world. .
