In my Natural Hygiene course, I am studying a Pediatrics section. Today's lesson was about constipation. Nature Cure deals with this with love, food, and physical attention. Physical exercise can be very helpful. Meat, fish, and chicken should definitely not be eaten. Retained feces from these foods can cause very toxic conditions.
I am reading Gaia's Garden trying to learn a little bit about permaculture. In permaculture you use nature to help a garden mature faster than it otherwise would. A mature landscape is a blend of trees, shrubs, and smaller plants. The typical manicured lawn is an immature landscape, and it requires constant work and the application of many chemicals to keep it from maturing. Our typical gardens are also examples of a young eco-system because they start from seed every year. In permaculture design we can have all that the annual garden offers and more. I hope to learn to arrange my garden so it will be like a mature eco-system rather than a young one. The book says that if I lay the groundwork, nature will create connections and fill in the gaps.
To health and happiness.
