The Nourishing Meme

Surfing around today, I came across a blog entry on Teri Robert's blogs, About Headaches and Migraine and Putting Our Heads Together. It was called, as this one is, "The Nourishing Meme." It's so lovely and thought provoking that I want to share it with you.

A meme, according to Webster is an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture." According to Wikipedia, the term meme "coined in 1976 by Richard Dawkins, refers to a unit of cultural information that can be transmitted from one mind to another. Dawkins said, Examples of memes are tunes, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or of building arches. A meme propagates itself as a unit of cultural evolution analogous in many ways to the gene (the unit of genetic information)."

This meme asks five questions. Here are those questions and my answers:

  1. What is the most nourishing thing you frequently do for yourself?
    Light incense, lie back on the floor, and do relaxation exercises or visualization.

  2. For your health, what will you never compromise on?
    Medications and medical care. No matter how tight money is, I keep some put back to pay for medications and doctors' appointments.

  3. Where do you get most of your health information?
    Online, from books, and from my doctor.

  4. What single whole food or supplement has turned your health around?

  5. What is your favorite natural therapy?
    Torn between aromatherapy and flower essences.

Now, for the challenge. I invite Droolie of "droolie's corner o' the planet" and Deborah of "weathering the migraine storms" to pass on this meme on your blogs. Tag! You're it. ;-)
