Nature is beyond words. It has fantastic things to offer . Living close to nature would be even more amazing. I was recently wondering about how human beings have drifted from being natural to artificial . Right from first thing in the morning to the last thing at night , everything is artificial. Be it alone your toothpaste to your hand wash or the mosquito repellants , cosmetics, may it be the food we consume. Have we ever given it a thought that what effects would each have on our health . Have we ever tried to relate the increasing number of sufferings and diseases to our lifestyle . Advent and revolutions in the field of medicine have undoubtedly made better survival rates and pushed our lifespans further. But what does it take to live without have gone to a hospital ?
The common mistakes we make in our day to day lives can lead to many hazardous health issues, may it be cancer or Alzheimer’s or any condition which we see is on a rise these days . The only answer to prevent such conditions may be natural living . As in –
