Hi there,

Since you have come to this website, health is probably a topic close to your heart, as it is to ours. We are a husband and wife team who are passionate about health and about natural healing, and we have spent literally thousands of hours reading on and learning about these subjects.

Why? Because we ourselves have struggled with various chronic health issues since childhood and it has only through educating ourselves and implementing changes in our lives have we experienced improvement.

Good health is so very important. Without health, all other aspects of life - from relationships to careers to learning to family-life to hobbies - are affected. Unfortunately, it's often the case that only people who have experienced poor health or chronic ailments really appreciate and take good care of their bodies.

Has good health been elusive for you? It's that way for many people, and it's certainly been so for us, too. It's a constant tug-of-war between healthy choices and the temptations, immediate gratification and health-destroying lifestyle elements surrounding us.

Further, what can be very confusing is the myriad of seemingly contradicting health information, tips and advice out there, encompassing both scientific research as well as age-old traditional health wisdom and knowledge. Sometimes, we get terribly confused, too. At times, it's very much a trial-and-error process.

The entire focus of this website is on being healthy naturally. Here, we put forth health information and research, as well as views, musings, analysis and other insights on health. We research on and cover various health topics, and we also engage other researchers and writers. These include natural health practitioners with clinical experience. We share our personal experiences as well.

Your health is precious. Join us in a wonderful educational journey on natural health and healing by signing up for our FREE Health on The Journey of Life Newsletter, where you will receive free natural health info and be constantly updated on this website and our network of health websites.

We wish you good health, and we hope the information on this website will be useful to you and your family.
