Welcome to Oh My Health Education, the home of healthcare options and advice that will improve your health and wellbeing naturally. If you’re concerned about your health, or have been suffering from illnesses without apparent cause, this blog will teach you to create a new lifestyle that’s in alignment with your body’s needs and the world around you.
The human body is a remarkable organism. Throughout its life it grows and changes, it heals itself when it gets damaged, and it survives through perilous conditions and situations. But that doesn’t mean that the body is indestructible. As you probably know, there are a number of things that can adversely affect your body and damage your health. That’s why we’ve created this quick guide to living a life that will help you heal and thrive naturally.
Balance in the Natural World
Whatever you believe about how your body was created, it’s a part of nature. And nature has its own balance. If you look at the natural systems of the world, from the largest to the smallest parts of it, they balance each other perfectly. Predators and prey exist in the perfect proportions so that neither population becomes too large. Flowers grow in bright hues that scare off the creatures that would eat them and attract insects for pollination at the same time. And the planet itself exists in the perfect position in space to allow for an explosion of life. Without interference or assistance, the world around you contains checks and balances that keep it stable and healthy. And this is an example that humans can and should learn from.
Humans are the only species that live out of balance with nature as a whole and individually. People eat too much, drink too much, carry unhealthy amounts of weight, and do a variety of things that make them unhealthy. This is against the natural balance of the world, and it’s against the human instinct for survival, but it still happens every day. And it doesn’t have to be that way. As a part of nature, human beings have the same instincts and the same ability to live in balance with the world and with their own systems. All it takes is the right kind of education and some dedication to the process of change.
Your Body and the Environment
Your body is intricately linked to the world around you. You breathe in the air, you eat food that grows in the soil, you soak up the sunshine, and you rely on the water to keep you alive. These interactions are essential for your continued survival, and so when things go wrong it has a profound effect on your health and wellness. The human body can heal itself, and regain its balance with the environment, but often these types of imbalances are ongoing and long term. And in this type of situation, the body can’t find its natural balance again, or its natural state of good health, and it succumbs to illness.
How the Balance Goes Wrong
There are countless ways that the natural balance inside and outside of the human body can go wrong. In fact, you’ve probably encountered quite a few of them in your day to day life. Some of the most common include:
- Toxins and chemicals in the air that cause breathing difficulties or stress the oxygen reliant systems in your body.
- Poor quality or the wrong type of food, causing illness, excess weight, or even malnutrition.
- The wrong amount of sunlight. This is due to the fact that too much sunlight can cause skin cancer, and too little can cause Vitamin D deficiency and bone diseases.
- The neglect of our instinctive connection to nature, to be replaced with a dangerously sedentary life spent indoors and away from the healing effects of the natural world.
The solution to the body’s imbalance isn’t medications or treatments that are fake and synthetic and push the body further out of alignment with nature. Instead it calls for a return to a more natural, instinctive way of living. Some easy ways that you can bring your body back into balance include the following:
- Drink plenty of natural, filtered water.
- Spend more time in nature and allow it to improve, heal and re-balance your body’s systems.
- Eat organic fruits and vegetables and avoid processed and pre-packaged foods.
- Educate yourself on the chemicals and additives in foods and eliminate them from your diet.
- Get some sunlight in the morning. This will encourage your body to produce Vitamin D in the right amounts for optimum health and also balance your circadian rhythm, which means that you’ll sleep better.
- If you’re taking medications, talk to your doctor about natural alternatives or lifestyle changes that might eliminate the need for them.
- Try natural options for health problems and pain relief before you turn to harmful synthetic medications.
- Use an air purifier in your home to improve the quality of the air you breathe.
Living in balance with nature means accepting the natural rhythms and needs of your body. It means rejecting advice that doesn’t work with the environment and the balance of your body and finding a new way of living and healing yourself. This sounds like a difficult task, and it will take some dedication and work on your part. But it isn’t as hard as it sounds, either. By making small changes, and sticking to them, you can have a noticeable effect on your health and wellbeing. After all, your body naturally wants to operate in harmony with the world around it, and it’s the demands and false promises of the modern lifestyle that prevent it from doing so. You just need to learn to push past that and find a more natural way of living.
