    Does Anyone Else Make an Attempt to Be "Natural"?

    For about two years, I've attempted to go back to ancient pagan roots and be "natural". I don't use sunscreen, I don't take any chemical medication (I only take medication that can be found in nature), I only use home-made natural soaps, I shave with knives or razor blades, and I try to eat foods that don't have any chemicals in them. The things that I do that don't fit into the category of "natural" are using a computer, listening to music, watching TV, brushing my teeth with toothpaste, going to school, etc., all the normal stuff that everyone more or less has to do or can not control at some point.

    Does anyone else have a somewhat similar lifestyle?

    I don't like to eat food with many chemicals in it or instant food. I buy meat from the local market from peasants which grow the animals in their yards, same with vegetables and we have a garden where we grow some of our own too. I knit. I love to knit, and I also like the knitted winter clothes better than from shops because they keep you warmer. Now the shops just sell fashionable clothes with models and some keep your back uncovered which isn't good for the winter. Sometimes I wash my hair with home made soap and vinegar because it makes it shiny and protects against dandruff. On medication, my father is a doctor, so when I look sick, he always tells me to take this and that medication. I don't dye my hair. Does that count as natural? Hmm, I don't think always natural = best, but using natural things is many times a good thing.

    Yes, I do. I try to consume natural food mostly and I also try to avoid medicine. In the past 3-4 years I didn't take any pill or medicine. I mostly try to cure myself with herbs or natural ways, for example at scars that are not deep I use honey instead of alcohol. Due to its great amount of vitamins I did notice that skin regenerates faster than when you use pure alcohol. I also use herbs when I wash my hair though I combine it with shampoo and conditioner that has most natural elements and least chemicals.
    But of course I also use a computer, take the bus if I have to travel for a long distance, etc, but natural ways are essential to me.

    I have a real aversion to taking medications (unless of course I was really really sick I suppose). Mostly I dislike the idea of taking Tylenol, Advil, or Benadryl. Any of those medicines that for the most part just mask the symptoms of the headache or cold or what have you. For whatever reason I have the idea that they probably do more damage than it's worth if you're not really curing any problem.

    Have you ever tried products (like toothpaste) such as Tom's of Maine?

    Most of the things we do in our home are "natural" as well.

    It's a relief to see that I'm not the only person with views like these.

    I haven't taken any artificial/chemical medication for 2 years and I feel great physically and mentally. For 2 years I've been eating meats and fruits (no vegetables for me, since I'm allergic to 90% of them) straight from the wilderness and drink mainly water, while occasionally drinking some fruit juice or a fermented beverage like mead or beer. I've only been sick once since then, and it was because I ate some really greasy microwave meal and got food poisoning. I guess my body wasn't used to the unnatural ingredients.

    Some people may think this is weird, but I try to be as close as possible to Germanic peoples of old (vikings, Saxons, Roman-era Germanics, etc.) in the way they lived.

    To be honest I've never looked up a natural brand of toothpaste, but I may have to get some now.

    I'm paranoid about medication too. I always remember how our biology teacher would say the organism becomes imune to some medication like Aspirin or Paracetamol which doesn't work to cure the flu faster or something along those lines. She gave an example, today, if you have a cold and you take Aspirin, it goes away in a week. If you have a cold and don't take Aspirin, it goes away in a week too. So, don't take Aspirin. My father insists that I take vitamins because I'm "getting skinny" while my mother is more into the natural ways. When I'm sick with the throat she makes me some tea with honey, while my father says "just take a Strepsils".

    I like to buy some magasines which give advice how to make facial masks from natural ingredients. Not just because it's cheaper than Loreal or Garnier, but the face skin really comes out nicer afterwards. My colleagues who use Loreal, Garnier, Clearasil and other products still get pimples after they use them.

    Oh, on teeth brushing. I sometimes brush my teeth with salt. This is how the old peasants used to do. It stings, but the result is amasing. I never got such white shiny teeth with Colgate Whitening and other toothpastes which they say they make your teeth very white.

    I get pimples when I try to clean my face, so I just don't. Occasionally I'll get one or two, but they're easy to pop and I don't get any marks left behind.

    Natural or not, using sunscreen is preferable to getting skin cancer. Quite a few of my fair skinned family members have had to deal with skin cancer as a result of sun bathing. It is a very real risk for NW Europeans and one that shouldn't be brushed aside in order to be more 'natural.'
