Conscious living involves becoming aware of the factors that influence health and disease such as lifestyle, social, external and environmental factors; as well as personal essence, genetics and medical treatments, procedures and prescriptions.
Conscious living puts the emphasis on understanding yourself and recognizing that the importance of each factor depends on your unique constitution and your current level of health. It is about becoming aware of yourself and making health decisions based on what is right for you versus judging external factors, such as specific food as good or bad.
