Healing Naturally -The Quickest Way to Heal



The consequences in my own life for breaking nature’s laws have been hard to live with, and often hard to undo. Even though abiding by these laws (such as getting enough rest, sleep, leisure, sun, fresh air, pure water, natural diet, exercise, laughter, love, creativity, meaningful work, time in nature, etc.) can make me feel impatient or limited sometimes – like when I think that extra rest will keep me from a project or an outing – the healthy results from living well are incredibly liberating!
