Man’s science is predominantly concerned with treating and preventing disease from the outside in.  Whether it be medications, vaccines, masks, or surgically altering our anatomy. Nature is predominantly concerned with health. By following the basic laws of nature, we create the setting for adaptation and healing from within. So, what is the answer when making choices on how to approach our wellbeing and longevity. To me the answer comes with this question. Is this going to make me healthy?
