I find it ironic that practicing simple healthy habits is called “alternative” health and/or medicine. I’m not using “alternative” health modalities. I’m getting healthy without medication after conventional medical treatment with drugs profoundly wrecked my wellbeing. Our language obfuscates. It’s quite Orwellian, in fact. Getting healthy in my mind means returning to or rediscovering what being in tune with our body/mind and spirit entails. Nothing alternative about that. It’s about returning to our animal inheritance. It’s foundational to simply being human.
