Paleo Air – Breathe Clean, Fresh Air from the Past

With life ever stressful and processed foods becoming the norm, the Paleo diet or caveman diet as it is often called provides a fresh look at the type of nutrition that would have been utilised a long time ago. The ideology is to turn away from processed foods and to rekindle the diet of man’s early ancestors. But the Paleo concept can go much deeper than this. It is of course about the traditional methods of gathering food and reconnecting with nature, but there is an emphasis on breathing in fresh, pure air. Known as Paleo Air, to understand it, we must quite simply turn back time. The Paleolithic period occurred around two million years ago. At this time, early man lived off the land hunting and gathering rather than living as farmers. Their diet consisted of fruits, nuts, vegetables and game without any grains. Following this time period, agriculture and early farming practices began and life for man changed considerably. In modern times, the dependency on grain has grown – consider wheat bread, pasta, rice or corn but in addition to these dietary changes, our lifestyles generally are ver...

How Wood Scents Affect the Human Body

We often marvel at the smell of flowers and warm breezes, but we can sometimes forget to appreciate the many healing properties found in the trees that give us clean AIR. Nature is cast with a wealth of wooded areas, each presenting its own unique benefits. Throughout the evolution of the human body, we’ve developed a connection to the organic elements around us. We miss many of these benefits in the modern world, but they can be regained by separating from the sterile habits we’ve grown to known and love. Less trees means more stress; a concept that many still struggle to accept. Mental health has become an epidemic in our society, and few are willing to address the root; the cause before the effect. A Civilized Decline For hundreds of years, humans have been systematically detaching from nature. We’ve convinced ourselves that “civilization” is synonymous with being surrounded by sterile concrete. We’ve replaced fresh breezes with man-made HVAC systems. We forgo real flowers for silk alternatives. Our vegetables are canned, and our food is processed – we don’t spend a fraction of the time i...

Why Is Air So Important? : Healing Yourself With Each Breath

For thousands of years, civilizations have benefited from the restorative properties of fresh, unspoiled oxygen. Societies thrived while breathing in the air that cycled through their lungs after being stirred from the depths of forests, hills and valleys, and serene mountaintops. Today, we don’t get to spend as much time in nature as our ancestors. Living in highly developed cities, each breath we take is tainted with toxins, smog, smoke, and other pollutants. If we take a page from the ancient practices our forefathers once enjoyed, we’d learn about the magical properties of the invisible healer better known as air. Healing that Goes By Many Names Every culture honors the practice differently, but the preface remains the same. Nature contains the elements we need to bring balance to the mind, body and spirit. The more we build up our cities and towns, the less these terpenes become available. A deadly domino effect takes over from there. It’s time to retrain your body to remember the elemental therapy it’s designed to depend on. Make time to detach from the concrete jungle and find your...

Meditation Can Change Your Life

When you hear the word ‘meditation’, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? It is often associated with prayers, religion, and spirituality - but that’s barely the tip of the iceberg. In its entirety, meditation is simply a way of living. It is a daily practice that holds the power to completely transform your life. Despite everything you’ve seen in the movies and on TV, there are no set rules for meditation. It is - and can be - anything you see fit. Meditation is a very personal practice that’s developed from the inside out. You can sit or stand, play music or rest in silence. Do whatever you need to do to calm your mind and turn your attention inward. When you really think about it, meditation is nothing more than being with yourself. It calls for you to become empty; releasing all thought, stress, and distractions. Meditation invites you to explore what’s known as the “great void”. That is, the space where nothing exists, yet all things live. Silent, mystical, and joyous beyond limits. When you find it, it’ll quickly become the most beautiful place you have ever been.
