    What does Nationalsocialism have to do with food?

    The German National Socialists worked to promote good eating and fitness as being essential to the physical and mental betterment of the people. A nation full of healthy, happy citizens will no doubt see more productivity, and therefore, cohesion and strength.

    Does anyone else have a somewhat similar lifestyle?
    Yes indeed, I also try to live a little bit more according to old traditions and more natural as long as it´s possible without being disadvantaged in daily life.

    As others already said I buy my meat, fruits and vegetables at local shops where I know that everything is pure and not mixed with chemicals. I´m lucky that my family has good relationships to local farmers and butchers, so the quality of our food is always excellent. We try to evade industrial food under all circumstances but sometimes it´s simply impossible.

    The only body-creme I use is Nivea to strenghten my skin and to add moisture. During winter time I need a lip salve from time to time because my lips would become dry and crisp otherwise - especially if I´m on the way outside with all the cold and wind. (Going Skiing without lip salve, well...I could pull off my whole labial afterwards! *g* )

    I´ve abandoned shaving body hairs (exception axillary hairs and legs in summer) some years ago because I find it a hysterical modern trend, an exaggerated ideal with it´s roots in near-east and in desert religions like Islam. The objections of "lack of hygienics" are unreasonable.

    I oppose piercings and tattoos, too, and I use medicines only if really needed. If I have a cold or a migraine I try to come trough without any medicamentation besides natural teas and other useful practices from grandmothers times. On the other hand I visit my doctor regularly for routine examination and preventive medical examination.
    I´ve got only those vaccinations I´ve received in my childhood-time. The only exception here is the tick-vaccination I update regularly because I´m often in nature and the woods, and so I´m getting bitten by ticks quite regularly...*sighs* It would be a too big risk for me to go out into local nature without tick-vaccination. I don´t want to end up with Lyme disease or something like that. That´s a compromise I have to make in my attempt to life more natural.

    My clothings are normal and casual because it would lead to negative consequences and impressions if I´d show up with medivial-orientated clothings! And, honestly, I find modern wear more comfortable and neat.

    "Tradition is not the worship of the ashes but the passing of the fire"

    This is my personal ideal of preservation, and so I think it makes no sense to wear medivial or ancient clothes only for the sake of wearing ancient clothes. Not everything I do or think must be seen or recognized by others. For the general public I just look like an average 23-year old female. But those who know me better are among the people I care.

    Yes, but don't all societies do that? Of course some do worse jobs than others.

    To my knowledge their was no Mein Kampf of food telling German citizens what to eat to become a perfect "Aryan".

    I don't take any modern medication unless I have no other choice. Chamomile tea with lemon and honey is way better. The last time I took any pills was after my hernia operation, but only IB Profin for a few days instead of the nasty vicadin that they where trying to force on me. Almost everyone in my family responds very poorly to vicadin and other strong pain pills, so much that we prefer to just tough it out than endure intense nausea.

    Public healthcare was one of the top priorities of German National Socialism and the government became very involved by enforcing many policies (especially in the schools) in concern for the wellbeing of its citizens. Numerous medical discoveries were made because of that focus, some of which other countries found much later. The promotion of healthy eating and exercise, whole grain, juice, fruit and vegetable consumption and condemnation of fats, tobacco, alcohol, etc. was all tied in to the strife for purity and superiority which was the basis for nearly all of the efforts of German National Socialism. Citizens were very much expected to do their part by taking the best of care of themselves. I imagine anyone who identifies as a National Socialist tries to live up to those standards.

    Yes and no, I alternate natural with artificial. I don't think natural for the sake of natural is a good idea in itself. If you want to live exactly like your ancestors did, you'd have to bathe once a week only and do other disgusting things like wipe your behind with tree bark or leaves. I avoid supermarket food because it's full of chemicals which are bad for the body and because animal cruelty is involved, not because it's not natural. I use sunscreen to protect my skin in summer. If I wandered around the natural way, I'd get sunburnt. I use face and hand cream because I have a sensitive skin and I am predisposed to rashes and irritation. I don't care that it's not natural, it's beneficial for me, that's what I care about.

    I don't really believe that a lot of things that people consider unnatural (i.e. modern drugs) are really unnatural, because they exist as the result of human beings manipulating their environment to suit them, which is a defining characteristic of human nature in the first place. That said, i do tend to avoid a lot of them because i usually believe there is something else that i can substitute that i can trust more.

    I suppose I subconsciously strive to live 'naturally'. The reason I don't eat meat and dairy is because I strongly oppose factory farming. Almost all of my vegetables are brought directly from an organic farm. I never eat fast-food. I almost never take medicine (don't really find that paracetomol etc works). I use fluoride-free toothpaste made from natural ingredients. I hate it when my girlfriend uses loads of moisturisers and hair-care products. The way I see it - nature didn't design us to require these things, she takes care of our hair and skin through good health and by design. I always opt for wood and metal over plastic and don't buy bags full of plastic-wrapped food every lunchtime at work. All small things that come naturally rather than me putting much conscious effort into.

    I make some conscious effort toward being "natural." Most of the food I eat is either homegrown, grown locally on organic farms, or bought organic from a "specialty" store like Whole Foods. I try to stay away from conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables. Same goes for meats and dairy products - I don't eat anything from the big commercial names, maybe with the exception of ice cream.

    As for hair products and such, I try to buy the most natural, chemical-free brands and use the least that I can. Thankfully my hair is completely straight and easy to manage, so I don't use hairspray or gel or anything similar. I use moisturizer and sunscreen on my skin but that's mostly the extent of that. The only thing I'm bad with is makeup - I buy from the big brands, i.e. Maybelline, Chanel, etc. but I don't wear a lot of it.

    I rarely take medicine like aspirin or naproxen sodium (unless it's that wonderful time of the month and I'm feeling particularly crappy). I also like to spend lots of time outdoors but I have class for 5 hours every weekday, so that's mostly cut back during the semester.

    Apart from that, I'm pretty modern in the way I live. I drive to school every day and buy conventionally-made clothing.
