INTERNATIONAL NATURAL HYGIENE SOCIETY - POSITION STATEMENT |
One of the prime considerations of the founders of INHS was the fact that the latest scientific research has shown serious flaws in the premise from which the earlier hygienists had taken their evidence, and based their practice. Over the years, many people had experienced serious adverse effects on the vegan diet and we felt it was important to address this. Research of people such as Dr Weston A. Price, adequately showed that healthy living was not necessarily based upon a 100% plant based diet. That in fact there could be, and was, a valid place for the use of animal products in the diet.
We would wish to emphasize the fact that nutrition is wholistic and involves all aspects of our lives, not only the foods we consume. Further we accept the part that ethics plays a part in our health. However, we would question the validity of ethics that supported a regimen which would have adverse effects on our well being.
Our prime concern is that if you choose to live as a vegan, we wish for you to be aware of these factors. The choice is yours.
We respect it, welcome you as a member of this society and invite you to join in our discussions.
