HumanaNatura’s Seventh Edition

By Mark Lundegren

I’m pleased to announce that the new seventh edition of HumanaNatura’s programs and primary website are now all live and ready for you to review. Go to HumanaNatura to see the updated materials.

Long planned and almost a year in development, I am delighted to have the new materials up, and to see how far HumanaNatura has come since the first generation of our programs went online, way back in 2002.

HumanaNatura’s Seventh Generation – Better, Broader & More Interactive

I’ve written about the program and website changes in several of our community newsletters, when the seventh edition was in its planning and development stages. In case you missed these, and now that everything is live, let me recap what has changed, beginning with substantive changes and then highlighting secondary refinements:

> Personal Health Program (link) – HumanaNatura’s core natural health program has been extensively re-written, with numerous substantive changes, many editorial alterations for improved readability, and the addition of hundreds of inline research cites for further reading. Key substantive changes to the program include:

– Overall – new emphasis of the ecological health benefits of the HumanaNatura approach

– Our Past – discussion of the ecological harmony of earlier hunter-gatherer life; exploration of the history of human population levels, natural population dynamics and sustainability, and natural birth control; discussion of natural alpha-cycle and beta-cycle functioning (an idea from my recent first book, The Seven Keys Of Natural Life)

– Natural Eating – discussion of the environmental benefits of the HumanaNatura diet; inclusion of yogurt (but not milk and cheese) based on its potentially favorable ecological health impacts and at least neutral personal health effects for many people; greater emphasis on green eating and the goal of a low BMI score; discussion of bacterial flora health; discussion of the naturalness of cooked starches and the moderated role they can plan in a modern natural diet; inclusion of intermittent, partial, and water fasting as options within a natural diet Read the rest of this entry »

Walking Versus Running

Visit HumanaNatura          Follow Us On Facebook

By Mark Lundegren

mark-2When discussing the HumanaNatura natural health system with others, I am often asked why we advocate walking over running in our Natural Exercise technique.

For many of us, running seems like real exercise, while walking is, well, just walking. And this is especially true if we envision short walks on flat walkways, as opposed to long ones on hilly footpaths.

Still, it is true that, step-for-step, walking is clearly less intense, and seems less like exercise, than running – and than many other aerobic activities. But ironically, it is exactly because of this quality that walking proves superior as a health promoter, especially across many people and over time.

Walking RunningIn practice, walking – including hiking – is a more natural and, for many of us, more naturally enjoyable human activity, compared with running and other forms of intensive exercise. For people overall, walking offers greatly reduced risks of injury, is easier to sustain as a practice in our lives, and is far more likely to be practiced on a lifelong basis. Walking is also flexibly practiced and requires no special equipment. For all these reasons, the case for walking is pretty strong.

HumanaNatura Gear Lists

Visit HumanaNatura          Follow Us On Facebook

When first beginning to use HumanaNatura’s Natural Exercise technique, we often have many questions, especially when regular exercise is a new practice in our lives. One common and recurring area is needed gear and equipment, especially as we turn to all-day and multi-day walking and backpacking.

The sample gear lists we have provided below summarize typically needed equipment – first for our calisthenics exercises and then for walking at the basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. Please use the lists for guidance, but do make changes based on your personal needs and circumstances .

Please also note that we normally recommend fitness clothing made from synthetic fabrics, due to their superior performance and often modest cost, and especially as your Natural Exercise practice progresses to the intermediate and advanced levels. Read the rest of this entry »
