Drop & Give Us Thirty

Follow HumanaNatura On Facebook and Twitter

By Mark Lundegren

If you are new to HumanaNatura and curious about the benefits of our scientifically-based natural health program, I want to propose a fairly simple, but potentially life-changing next step for you. 

I want you to drop, right now, and give us thirty.

Do you know what I mean by this?  Are you sure?  In the United States, where I live, this expression will have an immediate and all-too-clear meaning, even as I intend a different one with it.  In other parts of the world, the expression may not be as clear, but this has the advantage of not requiring you to learn a new meaning for an otherwise familiar phrase.

Drop What And Give What?

Though I can’t be sure how you initially reacted to my suggestion, what I am certain of is that it can be the difference between the life you live today and a life you might want much more and can soon have.  My request may be the beginning of a new way for you, a way to a new and fuller life that waits for you in the exploration of your natural health.

As you might have guessed, the image I hoped would come to mind with my proposal to “drop and give us thirty” was of a drillmaster at a military boot camp.  Perhaps you can picture the image now:  a tall figure with pressed fatigues, granite faced and crew cut, steel-eyed, a ton of attitude, shouting at a new recruit to drop and give him thirty push-ups.

It’s a funny image for me, partly because I am not especially militaristic as health advocates go, and partly because I don’t think it is important that you to do a lot of push-ups (though at least some each week is desirable).  In truth, the image of the drillmaster first came to me because I catch myself asking people for something very similar to this all the time, if in a softer tone. 

Though I am soft-spoken, the really funny part is that I ask for more than a few push-ups.  Despite my civilian tone, the scope of my request and the goals I have in mind for you are much larger than the drillmaster’s.  Instead of asking you for thirty push-ups, after all, which is a simple enough request once we are in shape, I want thirty days from you.   That’s right, thirty days, and beginning right now.

HumanaNatura and I want you to use the next month to explore our natural health program, which is always free and without obligation, and to experience for yourself the differences this approach to daily life can begin to make for you personally.   Instead of a body and mind conditioned for war and hardship, of course, we offer and want you to become better conditioned for life – and for a new, healthier, and much larger life at that. 

A few push-ups might suddenly seem like a smaller and easier request.  I know I really am more demanding the drillmaster in many ways.   And I know, unlike a military recruit awaiting orders, that you are likely busy with your life and have many pressing demands on your time.  But I hope you will consider that the drillmaster’s request, though it might be smaller and easier, might also offer smaller benefits and opportunities for you too, and lead to much less challenging and interesting life outcomes over time.

So, will you consider my thirty day proposal?  I do realize that a day is more than a push-up, and that thirty days is a serious stretch of time to ask from anyone.  The HumanaNatura program, and your own underlying and perhaps untapped natural health, had better have a lot to offer, which is in fact the case. 

Just as importantly, I also understand that I ask for thirty days in a world where our health is both a frequent and frequently frustrating topic, one with many competing ideas and voices clamoring for your attention, and so much poor health and false hope.  Do you ever wonder why this is?  In a few words, it is because our world is one where our natural health is still a relatively misunderstood topic, and thereby a topic that is heavily misguided and even exploited, an area of life where few people can claim true mastery. 

Our Health Today In Context

If you are regularly exposed to our modern mass media, as most of us are, you know the enormous numbers of offers for health information, diet plans, exercise programs, gadgetry, and pills and miracle cures we all receive. 

You know that we are encouraged to eat differently, to exercise in new and more exciting ways, to take supplements, to watch the newest spokesmodels, to listen to motivational lectures, and, almost always, to buy things.  In truth, HumanaNatura and I will do some of this, but we will never ask you to buy anything, since nothing need be bought to explore and realize our underlying natural health.  We really just need new ideas, directions, and who charges for directions?

With our modern mass media and modern health spectacle as our almost universal background today, we all come to the subject of our health with a high degree of caution and skepticism, and frankly, we should be skeptical of our current state of health.  The truth is that many of the people around us are quite unhealthy in our time, and all of us are often poorly-served in this critical area of life by both governments and businesses. 

Even many people working in the natural health sector itself do not yet understand the true scientific foundations of our health and well-being, as you will learn through HumanaNatura’s simple and easily-employed formula for the reliable advancement of our health.  And even fewer of us yet see that our personal health is a public or social good, a condition of individual life that either benefits or harms us all as it is increased or decreased. 

In my role as a natural health advocate and the founder of HumanaNatura, I face this confusing health landscape of our time every day, just like you.  And I work with skeptical, but health-curious and health-hopeful people every day.  With people who are perhaps much like you too.  Many initially assume HumanaNatura is trying to sell them something, so conditioned are we all now to expect this whenever we see anything remotely associated with our health and well-being. 

As I said, HumanaNatura has nothing for sale.  We are a cooperative, not-for-profit organization, working to promote health in people and communities, rich and poor, around the world.  And we are an organization that views our health as far too important to be relegated to self-serving commercial organizations, or to nearsighted and preoccupied public officials – in other words, to people who may be unhealthy or at least not as health-seeking as we need to be right now in this dawning scientific and global age.

When people realize that HumanaNatura is a cooperative organization that uses science to promote greater health, that we are non-commercial and our information is free, most generally become less guarded, but only somewhat so.  I mean, there still has to be a catch, right?  There must be a product or service offer coming.  Or we must have esoteric principles or a crazy philosophy hiding beneath our seeming advocacy of scientific method. 

HumanaNatura can’t be that straightforward, can it?

The HumanaNatura Approach

As I suggested before, you are right to ask what sort of people would give valuable health information away for free, and whether the information is credible and truly rooted in the latest science. 

HumanaNatura’s answer:  we are a global community of practitioners who have restored our natural health, using remarkably simple and progressive techniques derived from modern science, and who now wish this same transformative change for others and in our society generally.

Perhaps with your guard lowered just a bit, you might now browse HumanaNatura’s natural health program and try our online health quiz and assessment tool.  I only half-jokingly imagine this might be with your fingers light on your keyboard and your body in a defensive posture – so you are ready to click away, just in case something “typical” happens: a pop-up, a password or credit card request, or an idea that is simply not rooted in logic. 

But nothing like this will happen at HumanaNatura.  You can relax and be confident on our website, and become more informed through it.  And you can leave and return to our community whenever you want. 

As you and others gain a basic understand the HumanaNatura program, quite often our skepticism returns and even finds new footing.  With a quick survey of our ideas about natural health and quality of life enhancement, several common objections sometimes come:

  • This approach won’t work – it is too simple. 
  • Your three steps can’t be the path to optimal health – they are very different from ones I or others have already about natural health. 
  • HumanaNatura’s ideas are very different from what most people are saying about our health and natural health.

I might rest our case with that last objection, since the fact is that most people today are not especially healthy, but I also understand it can seem there is power in numbers.

As a health advocate, I have learned over time not to feed these objections with extended explanations of our ideas and scientific principles.  Long, involved explanations can be like swatting at bees, and no one benefits from this. 

The simple, quiet truth is that true, scientifically-based natural human health is a revelation in today’s generally unhealthy world – in a world that has been unhealthy and operating below its potential for a very long time.  The truth is that the pursuit of natural health is based on and involves progressing in an ancient way of human living, a way of life that involves and is accessed via new knowledge, long buried and only just unearthed by modern science. 

As an ancient way of living, and as only newly regained human knowledge, it is inevitable that our natural health is misunderstood today and will remain this way for some time.  It is equally inevitable that our natural health will be revolutionary and transformative to people and society, as our understanding of our natural health improves and as our health improves from this new understanding. 

And our natural health will be looked down upon and derided by many people, for a good deal of time to come, by people who lack and have lived without this knowledge, and without their natural health, for so long.  In the end, I have learned that our natural health simply has to be experienced to be believed, to be embraced, and to be truly understood. 

Which brings us back to my earlier proposal – that you drop, right now, and give us thirty days. 

Why Thirty Days And Why Now?

I hadn’t forgotten about my potentially life-changing request to you, in case you did.  If you are especially skeptical, but genuinely health-curious and hopeful, I will just highlight two words and encourage you to stop reading – “thirty days” – nothing less, and nothing more. 

If my proposal seems too difficult, then I will even narrow my request and ask you to follow the HumanaNatura diet only for thirty days, only our natural eating program and nothing else.  No push-ups or walks in wild nature, or extra time with health-oriented friends, at least for now.  I will leave and trust you to assess your ideas, and ours, about the transformative potential of our underlying natural health and well-being.

However you take it up, my thirty-day proposal does come with two conditions, but only two.  The first is is that you get your physician’s consent to begin the HumanaNatura program.  Our program for natural eating, and natural exercise if you decide to try it as well, is a simple but still significant change for most people, more than people generally realize, and it is worth weighing this change against any medical conditions you might have.

My second condition is that you follow the HumanaNatura program faithfully, especially the diet – 100%, full on, with little or no cheating during the thirty days.  Just as our imaginary drillmaster wants good, clean push-ups from his recruits, I want good, clean natural eating from you for the entire thirty-day trial period. 

Your commitment is not just to give the HumanaNatura program a fair test, which we do want you to do.  It is also because of the often remarkably fine line that exists between conditions that foster or fail to foster progress toward more natural states of health.  Often, even small amount of unnatural food can inhibit the substantial health progress you should expect from our program, especially in the first thirty days.

HumanaNatura very much wants you to cross that line, to experience and achieve more natural health as quickly as possible, so you will understand the power of our ideas and the potential for still greater health waiting in other aspects of your life.  After all, while critically important, a natural diet and natural exercise are only the beginning of our natural health, not its end. 

We’re Waiting

If you have come to the HumanaNatura community for the first time, perhaps at the suggestion of a friend, we promise you will not find strict drillmasters, pushy spokesmodels, or products or services of any kind for sale.  We ask only that you holster your skepticism, just long enough to give our diet program a fair trial. 

We are confident you will discover that much more waits for you in your health, and you will gain new openness to your natural health and the caring community of practitioners that is HumanaNatura – people who genuinely want you to discover what they have about our natural health.

So, if you will lower your guard to HumanaNatura and open yourself up to the possibility of new health and vitality in your life, in the days and weeks ahead, we will ask only one thing of you – to drop and give us thirty, right now.

We’ll be here in a month, and during the month, waiting for you.

Mark Lundegren is the founder of HumanaNatura.
