Support Natural Therapies to be recognised as the main factor in Active Prevention and living a healthy lifestyle.
We don't need more Hospitals, we need more healthy people.
useNature supports the World Health Organisation's Constitution:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and NOT merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Moving from a Diseases Maintenance System to a Wellness System
*Active Prevention is the Future of Sustainable Health Care.
NOTE: The Government, on advice by the NHMRC has declared 17 Natural Modalities as NOT effective. - This flies in the face of everyone who is using Natural Therapies and will make it harder to actively seek prevention for lifestyle diseases. Please read - Health Care System.... and take action, Contact your local member.
Note: For members of the public who seek or support Natural Therapies, please seek only "accredited" practitioners who can verify to be a member of a recognised Association.
Note: Associations support their individual modalities or professions. Associations are aware of the vital importance *Active Prevention and "Individual Health Improvement” from Natural Therapies can have in our society. - It is widely recognised that different health modalities/professions are needed in order to support a Multicultural Society in preventing Lifestyle Diseases.
Anything that restricts access to Active Prevention, as in restricting, or make more expensive Natural Therapies and Services, will make it harder for the public to actively live or seek a healthier lifestyle.
Note: *Active Prevention means a person has to perform a lifestyle changing action, by either including or excluding lifestyle habits.
