As more people fail to find relief with modern medicine, even more are realizing the importance of self-responsibility for their own health and waking up to the fact that our food, lifestyles, attitudes and environment have a direct impact on how we feel and think.

When we learn new ideas with practical applications, they gradually replace the negative patterns that previously lead to illness and separation from the flow of life.
