Accessing Your Health Progress

The basic premise of this Web site is that if you provide your body with what it needs, it will naturally heal itself. Optimum longevity is the end result of providing for all the needs of the whole person, consistently, over a very long period of time. Achieving a longer life requires that you take working on your health seriously.

Highlights of Accessing Your Health Progress:

  • The basic premise of this Web site is that if you provide your body with what it needs, it will naturally heal itself.
  • The basic premise of any good diet is variety, balance and moderation.
  • Nutritional supplements are supposed to supplement your diet rather than replace it.
  • Physical exercise strengthens your body and makes it more fit and resilient.

A natural health site should naturally offer a more commonsense approach to health. The Natural Health Perspective is not a medical Web site. Our longevity program is about five key areas: Diet, Nutritional Supplements, Exercise, Attitude, and Resilience.

In natural health, truths are never experienced by reading about them. You only experience a truth by living a healthy lifestyle. The latest health research findings will never impact your life, but eating a healthy diet will impact your life immediately with each meal. Our wellness program can never be experienced by you until you decide to make it your health program. You increase your longevity by working on your health, not by reading about our health program.
