Whether you are budget conscious or simply epidemic-aware, a more natural lifestyle may be a way to bring more balance to your life.  A natural approach to wellness focuses on organic living and a beautified environment, seeking remedies of the earth instead of processed contents. 

The iPhone apps that aim to help you lead a more spiritually balanced lifestyle are as vast as the ways in which you can go about achieving that lifestyle.  The indication of strong interest in individual wellness suggests that the iPhone is becoming a resource better aligning people with their regular goals. 

Wellness can cover a pretty large gamut, though I tried to narrow it down a few areas of importance: food, health, spirituality and environment.  Perhaps these applications can help get you started on a more natural approach to your wellness.

iPhone apps for food

Whole Foods Recipes features meal ideas from the organic food market.  Select from items in season locally and filter search results based on things like meal type and ingredient.  The free app keeps you on track for your wellness, as it gives you recipes and local information on organic products.

Botanical Interests is pricey at $5.99, but comes from a company dedicated to quality seeds and helping its customers. Email or call Botanical Interests with questions about your garden. In-depth info on plants makes it easy for even an urban dweller like myself to develop a green thumb.
