Evening hikes

With the full moon coming, each passing day is an opportunity for evening walks and moonlit hikes. Beginning perhaps after an early supper, time outdoors right now offers the refreshing light of late afternoon, a chance for dramatic sunset views, and the opportunity of the rising full moon. Daily walking and time in nature are key elements of the HumanaNatura Personal Health Program. We would  encourage you to learn more about this program and to find your own personal path between the natural and human worlds.

Off the bottle

A new study by researchers at Temple University adds to growing evidence that infant weaning beginning at about age one is most likely to lead to more optimal childhood and adult health outcomes in the developed world. The new research tracked continued bottle feeding at age two and showed a strong correlation with obesity at age five, an established marker for later adult health problems. Learn more about the latest research at Weaning Baby, and see earlier NaturaLife posts for information on new infant feeding guidelines at Natural Eating For Infants and the risks of pre-mature weaning at Infants & Breast Milk.

Healthy connections

An interesting new study adds to the already large body of evidence that strong and supportive social connections are an essential dimension of our natural health and well-being. The latest research examined elders over a five-year period and found that those with strong social connections were 70 percent less likely to develop dementia than those living in relative isolation.
