+ Birth

Natural Attachment believes in a woman's ability to have a safe, natural pregnancy and childbirth. A woman should be presented with all the necessary information, so she can make informed decisions. We also believe that ultimately, it is a woman's right to choose where, how and with whom to have her children.

+ Nutrition

A man's first doctor is himself, then Mother Earth. A person should concentrate on treating the whole illness; the whole person and not just the symptoms. Symptomatic treatment leads to unnecessary drugs and sometimes worse illnesses. Alternative medicines can be a person's first line of defense before using modern medicine. Homeopathic treatments help the body heal itself. The benefits of using herbal remedies and treatments such as acupuncture are immeasurable.

+ Health

Nutrition is the key to staying healthy. Though Natural Attachment promotes a strict vegetarian or vegan diet, there are certain basic principles that any diet should include. We have also found that a family, whose members all subscribe to the same diet, eat better, communicate better & tend to be more unified in all areas of their lives. Organic & unprocessed foods are optimal for good health & growing children.

+ Homeschooling

We believe that every family can homeschool at least part-time, if not full-time. Homeschool is a great way to see what your children are learning, rather than depending on subjective testing and 'average' scoring. Homeschooling also allows you as a family to decide what is important for you to learn and when to learn it, instead of repeating subjects over and over. It is also a great way to integrate spirituality into your family unit.

+ Family Planning

Natural Family Planning and Ecological Breastfeeding are two great and drug free ways to space children or avoid conception. Taking control of their fertility is empowering for many women and families. It is quite possible and easy to avoid conception without using potentially harmful hormonal drugs or medical devices. Keep in mind though that natural family planning does not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases.
