It seems like being “healthy” in this day and age is a complicated task.
The majority of the population is taking some kind of pharmaceutical drug to deal with different symptoms while others are finding alternative ways to take care of their health issues.
We are constantly preoccupied with our health, often spending lots of time and money while our efforts reward us with nothing but frustration.
A juice fast or a detox retreat is good way to support good health. Facilitating this process and seeing the positive changes it creates in people’s lives made me wonder what it is that the body needs in order to be healthy and in fact, what it means to be “healthy”.
It’s a known fact that today people are as much affected by stress, over-exposure to electronic devices and poor sleep as they are from the food they eat. I started noticing that spending a week in nature, where one can breathe clean air and drink clean water, walk barefoot, jump in the river or bathe in the sun, has as much a positive effect on body-cleanse participants as fasting and colon cleansing.
It is my understanding that “health” is the natural state of our bodies and that being in an environment where nature is present and alive supports our body to move into a more naturally healthy state. We have separated ourselves from nature, placing our trust in the food industry and the drug companies, forgetting the simple ways of nature. Reconnecting to that simple, natural way of life could very well be the first step into a new state of health from which better choices of nutrition and lifestyle can organically manifest in our lives.
PachaMama provides the perfect environment for us to heal and reconnect to our state of well-being, allowing ourselves to be inspired and touched by the balanced harmony that is nature.
Clean air, clean water, sunny beaches and the song of the birds are also great doctors this life has to offer.
