We have domesticated ourselves and made it taboo to consider an alternative. We are not as fit, resilient, or adaptable and far more prone to chronic disease than our ancestors. We’re missing out on valuable negative ions that enter our bodies through direct skin-to-earth contact and assist with detoxification and rejuvenation. If domestication is the disease, then “re-wilding” (as some have called it) is the remedy.

BREATHE NATURAL AIR

As you could probably guess, natural air is more rejuvenating than the moldy air in your home. So go outside! In order to absorb oxygen most beneficially, fill your lungs by breathing deeply through the diaphragm.

EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT 

Sunlight is part of our natural nutrition, so expose your skin to those warm rays of sun. Your skin uses the energy from the sun to manufacture vitamin D for the body. This vitamin is important for many reasons, including its role in promoting a stronger immune system and proper mineral absorption. 

DRINK UNPROCESSED SPRING WATER

What we drink is as important as what we eat. However, you may not be aware that our water can be just as processed as the processed food we have learned to avoid. Much of the water we drink has minerals removed and chemicals added. Instead, find a natural spring and drink up. Otherwise, you’re better off drinking water bottled in glass than tap water.

CONSUME LIVING, WILD FOOD

Humans eat living (or once-living) things for fuel  – an avocado plucked from the tree, a fish caught from the sea, that cucumber pulled up from the ground, or sauerkraut covered in tiny microbes. We need these wild foods.
