More Impressive Crop Data from Nutrition Farming Project

Work continues in the Nutrition Farming for Hawaii (NFH) Research and Demonstration Garden.  Here are some more impressive examples of increased nutrient content from our first year as compared to USDA Food Nutrient Database published values.

Below are two crops, red curly lettuce and green onions.  Most values show good gains over the USDA values.  You will notice the NFH crops’ phosphorus is not as high.  Phosphorus is a particular problem in Hawaii soils.  We put on quite a bit of soft rock phosphate, an organically-approved type of phosphorus, which takes some time to become fully available to the crops.  I’m not too worried about it because phosphorus is rarely a missing element in human nutrition.  We will continue to tweak the soil to get it just right.  We are just about ready to do a retest of the soil.

What is most impressive on these reports are the gains in elements that are often deficient in human nutrition, such as calcium, iron, and zinc.

You are what you eat.

You become what you think

You reap what you sow….

Are these just old wives’ tales and useless platitudes or is there deep soul wisdom within them we have ignored and the cause of mass DIS-ease upon the earth and in body, mind and soul?

 

What is blocking you from being your best? What does vibrant health bring to your life? How can you have more, be more and do more?

Let’s become our own best researcher and advocate for health and well being. Will you take your health back now? Is it possible?

Dr Jana Bogs has researched for herself and has discovered some disturbing things about our food.

  1. Our food has lost up to 70% of its nutrient content
  2. Our food is loaded with toxins, pesticides and herbicides
  3. These toxins deplete us of vitality,  health and are poisoning us and the earth.

 

Is there a solution?

There is and it begins with our foundation, the soil. Dr Jana is a soil expert and stresses the importance of creating good health by adding good stuff. Specifically adding beneficial microbes and minerals will dramatically improve every aspect of our nutrition profile and health.

Have you ever wondered about the power food has on your health, your happiness and your ability to live your life?

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said:

“Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.”

 

Dr Jana and I had a great time discussing the importance of Nutrition Grown Food (™), real health, and the correlation between the food we eat and how good we can feel each day.

Dr. Jana recommends:

 

Find out what is blocking you from being your best! These blockages can come in many forms. They can be emotional, environmental, and spiritual. These blockages usually start from being toxic or depleted; OR both! Which are you?

 

It is during this time of year that we want to clear out all the gunk and junk in our lives and make room to add the good stuff.

 

Create a healthy foundation, cultivate a healthier lifestyle and plant seeds of  joy.

 

Empower yourself with this series and Dr. Jana’s Perfect Soil Course. See more clearly the detrimental effects environmental toxins are having on food, health, and home.  

What is real nourishment?

 

Go organic whenever possible. Learn about the “dirty dozen” and the “clean fifteen.” This, however,  may not be enough. Dr. Jana encourages us to go beyond organic  and grow our own nutrition rich food.

 

Dr. Jana is our guide to awaken the gardener/farmer within and she is offering this interactive online course so you can learn to grow the best food ever.  Then share your wisdom, experience and nutritious foods with others to increase their vibrancy and health.

 

Dr Jana recommends genuine wellness from soil to soul.

 

Thanks so much for your time and enjoy the course.

 

With love and light,  Rev. Lisa

Dr. Zach Bush interview on soil health affecting human health

Human health begins in the soil.  Hear the fascinating details from Dr. Zach Bush, a former cancer researcher, as interviewed by Dr. Joseph Mercola.  Dr. Bush started teaching his patients how to garden and change their diets to get well.  Enjoy!

Nutritional Perspective

Doctor: “Food has nothing to do with your disease.”

Your internal voice: “That can’t be right. Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, and many other problems are caused by junk food.”

Lesson: Listen to your internal voice. Your doctor most likely has no nutritional training, and therefore has no platform to make such an obviously flawed statement.

With thanks to Dr. Peter Osborne, an excellent functional medicine doctor (one who seeks the cause of problems) based near Houston, Texas.

Mold Biotoxin Illness and its Correlation to Agriculture

I want to share what has been happening with me lately that may impact you or someone you know.  I’ve been recovering from toxic mold exposure.

I never thought much about mold.  It was just an annoying thing I had to clean off of leather items, like my saddle.  Come to find out, 1 in 4 people are genetically susceptible to mold biotoxin illness. (“Lucky me”, the 1 in 4.)  That means they cannot clear from their bodies the biotoxins that molds put off.

The biggest source of toxic mold is water-damaged buildings.  The US government claims that 1 in 2 buildings in the US is water-damaged.  This was the case for my illness.  Living in a humid environment tends to further compound matters.  You may not be able to see or smell the mold, but it can still make you gravely ill.  I hope you can realize the enormity of the issue.

These biotoxins create havoc by poisoning the body, causing inflammation throughout the body systems.  Symptoms are extremely variable depending on the other genetics and how well the various body systems can defend themselves.  Headaches, fatigue, brain fog, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are probably the most common symptoms, but there are many others.  Most doctors don’t have a clue as to the cause of the condition, and write it off as some other disease or that it is all in one’s head.

My symptoms were unusual and none of the many doctors, holistic or conventional, I have seen through the years have understood the cause.  Yes, I was tested for many things, including allergies.  It was not that and, yes, the allergy doctor concluded that it was “in my head”.  Not!

More than one doctor offered me chemotherapy to suppress my immune system.  I told them “No!  I want to determine and remedy the cause, not just suppress my immune system so it won’t react.”

Another doctor prescribed oral, broad-spectrum antibiotics.  I told her I didn’t want to further impair my intestinal flora.

You really have to be your own advocate!

Fortunately, some functional medicine doctors do understand mold illness. However, good luck trying to get health insurance companies to pay for office visits or tests ordered by functional medicine doctors.

The genius researcher who has uncovered the truths about mold biotoxin illness is Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker.  He has an extensive testing and treatment protocol.  He no longer sees patients, but is training a growing number of physicians, who are listed on his website, www.survivingmold.com.

Mold biotoxin illness is not a new illness, but the incidence has increased with changes in building materials and construction.  With the effort to cut energy costs we now have “tight building syndrome”, which results in a greater concentration of indoor air pollution due to less air exchange.  In 1969, mold-retardant paints were introduced.  Just as antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains have developed due to the overuse of antibiotics, super-toxic molds have developed due to the use of mold-resistant paints.  What happens is that the organisms that aren’t killed develop more resistance over subsequent generations.  They proliferate because their weaker competitors have been killed off by the agent (mold-retardant paint or antibiotic).

The same thing can be seen in agriculture.  When nature is in balance, it is a self-regulating system, and life is good.  When humans interfere in the system with toxic agents, good and bad aspects of the system, i.e. microbes or insects, are all impacted, with the bad becoming more prevalent over time due to the resulting selection and lack of competition.

I am delighted to report that I am feeling much better now that I moved to a drier location, cleaned or discarded everything I own (while wearing a mold remediation mask), and got some truly helpful medication.  Yes, mold remediation is a huge undertaking.

Now I am happily back to my regular work of helping to grow the best foods ever!
