Alternative medicine has also been a regular presence in my life. Even as a toddler, my parents treated me with homeopathy, and it has stayed with me as the only appropriate type of medicine for me. I actually go on yearly medical fasting retreats as preventative care, both physically and mentally. (More to come on those soon!) Infusions and drip-feeding are part of the standard for me, not because I lack something (our bodies can lack vitamins and minerals which blood tests will show), but because I want to maintain my health and lovingly support my immune system. So, nowadays, you would probably say I’m on a path of “no-tox living,” but this state is so normal for me now, that I barely even think about it.
In a world based on consumption, how much we want to consume is a daily choice. I find great satisfaction and contentment in buying, consuming, and overall living consciously. The meaning is different for every individual, and I’m a firm believer that you must live in your own truth. I’ve become particularly passionate about the field of “conscious consumption,” and look forward to exploring it more alongside you in the coming months. I am far from reaching my goal, and I am aware that there are role models who are doing much more than I am in this area. However, small steps and conscious actions are the key.
