Health and Healing - A new forum idea
    #2058399 - 10/30/03 09:13 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I recently turned 27 years old and have realized that I must pay much more attention to my health, although I admit I'm still lazy in my overall approach to improve.

I just picked up a copy of Dr. Andrew Weil's book "8 Weeks To Optimum Health." It's a way to get healthy week-by-week, using an 8 week period to get started.

Anyway, I think if we truly have love for one another here at the Shroomery we should make a Health & Healing forum to discuss foods, exercise, yoga, meditation, breathing, fasting, nutrition requirements, where to buy foods, etc.

Whatchya all think?

/smiles in love with 3D in hope that he will actually support this one  :wink:

luv ya, tuf guy  :crazy: :wink:

While I think it's a good idea, we already have like a billion forums already...and those topics would be covered under Culinary Arts and S&P for the most part.

I'm not so sure that HEALING and PHYSICAL HEALTH have been covered thoroughly - with a theme attached to them.

I think a lot (a lot!) of us aren't eating the correct foods and it may be hurting a lot of us. I think a lot of us aren't drinking enough water while avoiding fake drinks.

Some of us, like myself, need to get into jogging and more of a cardiovascular-oriented routine. I could also stand to learn more about weight-lifting and working out different muscles/areas of the body.

Healing would also discuss not just the physical, but the mind as well. We could use this forum to discuss psychological health and healing - good thinking and bad thinking. How to start thinking positively (in truth) and avoid negative thought patterns/loops. We could also discuss how foods affect the mind and body's chemical balance.

I realize it's kind of a spin-off from Spirituality & Philosophy with the Culinary Arts and Support Group Central forums, but it would be a more detailed version where all the puzzle pieces are put together, with less attention to philosophical theory and sharing revelations.

For instance, right now I would like to ask "What yoga asana is recommended to promote a bowel movement?" yet what forum could I possibly put that in? Support Group Central? Lol. Culinary Arts? I don't think so. S&P? No way. Only in a Health & Healing Forum would it apply.

I'm serious about the question too. If anyone knows please inform me.

The question would be fine in the Pub.  The problem I see with a Heath and Healing forum is not the idea behind it, but the fact that we are already stretching ourselves thin and have some forums with absolute minimal traffic to even keep them around (eg. culinary arts).  Thus, if we did open up this new forum I doubt it would receive adequate traffic to even be able to offer good responses to your query.  The Pub on the other hand, is flame free and has a fairly large group of participants... and depending on what S&P mods think, yoga-related questions may be able to be posted there as well, even if they are not directly related to spirituality and philosophy.

We have a lot of forums, almost too many - but not quite, so let's keep it that way :cool:

p.s. If you do start creating topics about heath & healing in forums such as the pub, and they receive a large response over an extended period of time - then we can talk about instating a new forum.  But until significant interest is exhibited, I'm going to have to say hold off.

Fair enuf'. Thanks for taking a moment or two to explain things. No admin has ever done this as thoroughly as you have just done (when a "no" was issued to yours truly).
