A Glimpse Into Our Ancient Past

Visit HumanaNatura                                                 Like Us on Facebook

A marvelous and fully modern glimpse into our pre-agricultural past, and the many enduring lessons that this long-evolved pattern of human life holds for understanding our modern health and well-being needs.

This important documentary provides an overview of efforts to 1) catalogue the lifestyle and 2) trace the historical origins, via genetics and linguistics, of the black-skinned, hunter-gatherer Andaman islanders still living on remote islands in the Bay of Bengal (though now just barely).

First Out of Africa – The Totally Isolated Tribe of the Andaman Islands

For people using or exploring the HumanaNatura natural health system, the video provides tangible examples of many of the descriptions and ideas about earlier life contained in the Our Past section of HumanaNatura’s Personal Health Program.

Included in the video are modern-day examples of our original hunter-gatherer or Paleolithic diet, ourl lifestyle and social structure in nature, our intra-band behaviors and norms, and our varying inter-band relations (which were generally not as gregarious as within our bands).

Also included are ideas about our historical Homo sapiens ancestors’ departure from Africa within the last 100,000 years, and discussion of relatively new evidence suggesting our at least episodic interbreeding with pre-existing Homo erectus people living in central and southern Asia (who left Africa beginning more than 1 million years ago).

Importantly, the video also probes the effects of interaction between Paleolithic humans and more technologically and socially advanced people, highlighting a process that has occurred countless times since the Agricultural Revolution – as newer and materially more powerful modes of living encroach upon, displace, and upend earlier human life.

Overall, the video is enormously interesting on its own, but will be of particular interest to anyone studying or seeking palpable examples of earlier natural human life and considering the lessons of earlier life for modern-day life and health. We recommend the video highly!

Progressive Life At The Equinox

Visit HumanaNatura                                                 Like Us on Facebook

Greetings from HumanaNatura at the equinox! In the natural year, we are now halfway between the extremes of light and darkness of the winter and summer solstices. Everywhere on earth, there is equal day and night, and a heightened balance or natural centering that touches many aspects of life.

New Day Waits For You

In the HumanaNatura natural health system, we encourage practitioners to use the twice-yearly opportunity of natural balance and moderation that is each equinox for the crucial practice of reviewing and updating our Natural Life Plan - making changes as needed, and renewing and revitalizing our commitment to progressive natural life and health for the months ahead.

If you have not yet created a Natural Life Plan to guide your use and expression of the third HumanaNatura technique, Natural Living, our links will take you to our planning worksheets and seven-step planning process. Together, these resources will help you begin more intentionally health-centered and naturally progressive life in the days and weeks ahead.

Our newest member newsletter was released today as well, which is published eight times yearly in harmony with the natural year, providing updates on HumanaNatura’s resources, programs, and worldwide health campaigns. To receive future HumanaNatura newsletters or learn more about our global practitioner-advocate network, go to Join HumanaNatura.

However you mark this equinox, we wish you natural balance and new health!

NaturaLife: 2013 Year In Review

Visit HumanaNatura                                                 Like Us on Facebook

Our site host, WordPress, has prepared a 2013 traffic report on NaturaLife, which we have shared below. Apparently, HumanaNatura is now selling out to packed houses, at least virtually. We are of course pleased to see this growing interest in our revolutionary, renaturalized approach to modern life and health – and want to use this opportunity to thank you for your interest in and support of our efforts. As we look ahead to 2014, feel free to check out our 2013 stats and explore our free online natural health programs!

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 23,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

We had a request to publish a photo-based, social media-friendly version of HumanaNatura’s popular Calisthenics Workout Poster…and here it is!

Calisthenics PosterAs you may know, the full HumanaNatura Calisthenics Guide & Poster on the HumanaNatura website are in .pdf format, which is great for viewing and downloading, but this is not the best format for sharing on sites like Facebook.

The poster photo to your left is a .jpg copy of the full HumanaNatura poster, and includes all 22 core, intermediate, and advanced exercises from our calisthenics program.

In addition, please note that large, professional-grade copies of the poster are available via the HumanaNatura Marketplace.

HumanaNatura: Testing For Truth

Visit HumanaNatura                                                 Like Us on Facebook

By Mark Lundegren

Mark Lundegren

We all have our truths – ideas we believe to be accurate descriptions of ourselves and the world around us.

This is an overall or general fact of life. But it also applies more specifically (and often more critically) to our attempts to improve our health, well-being, and quality of life. And this fact begs the question, how do we know when our health-related truths are actually true?

The answer of course, as my title suggests, is by testing our truths. By this, I mean treating our health and well-being proposals as hypotheses, or as ideas or predictions that must be confirmed by objective information – and that must prove valid across varied and repeated tests of this kind.

Testing For Truth

Back From My Recent CAT Scan, Wondering What The Results Will Be

In practice, the testing of various health hypotheses takes at least three important forms: 1) research and analysis probing information that might both validate or invalidate our thinking, 2) short-term experiments that directly test key aspects of our health hypotheses, and 3) making and time-testing longer-term predictions about ourselves and the world.

Unfortunately, in health as in life, we often proceed without adequate testing of our truths, with two critical consequences. One consequence is that we may live with false health ideas, and thus sub-optimally and below our potential, perhaps throughout our lives. And we may promote our ideas through our actions, encouraging others to live as we do and in less than ideal ways.

A second consequence of inadequately testing our health ideas is that they naturally tend to multiply in number, and then conflict in content, since new health ideas are generally easier to create than dismiss. In many ways, this multiplicity of ideas aptly describes both the health and natural health fields today. In the name of health, we are now routinely admonished to eat, exercise, live, and relate to one another in widely different ways.
