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!
As 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.
Feel free to bookmark this page or you can access it anytime via NaturaLife by searching “poster” in the search bar.

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.
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.
Greetings from HumanaNatura at the cross-quarter! In the natural year, we are now halfway between the extremes of light and darkness of the past solstice and the more naturally balanced time of the coming equinox .
Right now is a great time to make extra progress on your Natural Life Plan, so that you have adequate completed actions and learning for the equinox, in another six weeks or eighth of a year, when HumanaNatura encourages plan review and renewal.
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.

With a new year, perhaps it’s time for a new day – and a new committment to your health and quality of life. It’s an easy step and you can start at your next meal. All it really takes is a little learning about Natural Eating the HumanaNatura way, a willingness to explore the many benefits of HumanaNatura’s OurPlate eating guidelines, and your appetite.
This example HumanaNatura salad meal took minutes to prepare and is as satisfying as it is healthy. It begins with a simple base of lettuce, adds a handful each of pre-packaged shredded cabbage and carrots, a few grape tomatoes, a small diced apple, and a bit of protein via pre-cooked shrimp (though almost any lean protein will do). It’s all topped with a light drizzle of vinaigrette dressing, providing lots of flavor in every bite, and is a great way to start the new year or any day in it.
You can learn more about creating naturally delicious and optimally nutritious meals via OurPlate, HumanaNatura’s easy-to-use Natural Eating model. Experience how this science-based and 100% natural approach to our daily meals can change the way you eat, feel, and live.

Greetings from HumanaNatura at the solstice! In the natural year, we are now at the extreme points in the ever-changing light of our earth. Today is the shortest day and winter solstice in the northern hemisphere, and the summer solstice and longest day of the year in the south.
In the HumanaNatura tradition, we encourage spending time at this and every solstice to mark these natural milestones in the year with family, friends, and community. With the special light and feeling of each solstice, it’s a natural time to mark the ebb and flow of the year, celebrate progress in our lives and Natural Life Plans, and encourage new health and progressivity in others.
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 HumanaNatura’s planning worksheets and seven-step planning process. Together, these resources will help you to begin using this crucial HumanaNatura technique to achieve more intentionally health-centered and naturally progressive life before the next solstice arrives.

Would you like to make your community a better place in which to live and more aligned with HumanaNatura’s ideal of progressive natural health?
If so, let me say that this is an important goal and worthy ambition. But I must also add that you will need help in this work. Progressive health and vitality in a community is a long-term and ranging endeavor, one requiring action on the part of all or many people within any community. It is a task you can begin but cannot achieve on your own.
In many ways, though, starting a community’s movement toward greater health is the hardest part. With time and just a bit of visibility and success, community interest and involvement naturally increases. We often steadily and unexpectedly find the resources we need to both address pressing health issues and then to begin an ongoing and self-reinforcing process of community health promotion.
But getting started, and finding early adopters and supporters, can be daunting at first. Fortunately, lessons from community activism outside the community health field, and from international development efforts in particular, provide a useful model you can use right away to jump-start your community health promotion process.
I came across a simple community mobilization model at a recent seminar, courtesy of Rafter Ferguson of Liberation Ecology, and think it applies well to communities of all shapes and sizes – especially ones in the early stages of utilizing HumanaNatura’s Community Health Program.
Finding Likely Supporters
As summarized in the graphic below, this model for finding likely community supporters asks us to consider three factors: 1) those people who are most local, 2) those who are most impacted or affected (in this case, by health related issues), and 3) people who are most organized already.
