Meat from all land animals and dairy is probably the most water (and air) consuming product you buy. For 1 kg of cheese it is about 5000 liters. The water ‘cost’ for a cotton T-shirt is just above 2500 liters and for a laptop to be produced 20 000 liters of fresh water is needed. Meat is still the worst as some eat it 3 (!!) times a day. The High Protein Diets have not helped the Earth in this way. Meat consumption has unfortunately gone up because of them.
If we compare different food and goods, everything coming from land animals is worst, because we eat and wear it so much. But if you buy more laptops than leather shoes you might be costing the water resources and Nature more.

To be a Conscious Consumer is nothing else than to think before you buy. The most important question to ask is; Do I really need this? If all of us would think beyond ourselves when asking this we probably wouldn’t have many of the ecological (and health) problems we do today. Minimalistic consumption is the best consumption. You can do as Oprah Winfrey and many others, start by by cutting down on animal food, and meat more than anything.
The health benefit is huge, and a plus if you care more about Nature and your footprint than your body. Don’t believe me? Check out this video with a 98 year old heart surgeon who stopped eating food from animal sources when he realized he never had to operate a vegan.
Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
