About the name Natural-Know How:
Natural is defined as existing in a natural state, caused by nature, and is not man-made. Know-how is defined as an individual or group of individuals gaining knowledge to accomplish something.
Taking those definitions in mind, many people are going back to a simpler way of thinking. Natural and untainted by human processes is a driver for many people to change their perspective around health and wellness. This includes changing to positive, holistic ideals about supplementation, herbal medicine, food as medicine, food processing techniques, pharmaceuticals, and conventional medicine practices.
