Health starts in the soil
It’s very simple – our health depends on the health of our guts.
We may not want to think about our guts as we may find the thought pretty yukky but that does not stop them being crucial for our health – sorry but that’s the way of the world.
Our guts are more than trillions of bugs or cells which digest our food – they communicate with each other to provide intelligence – it is our second brain, which working with our head brain, controls our body – whether we feel full or hungry, how much fat we store for an emergency food supply and how we manage the harmful bugs which are continuously invading our bodies.
But the health of out guts depend on the health of the food we eat which in turn depends on the health of the soil in which it is grown which in turn depends on the trillions of micro-organisms which make the difference between dirt and soil.
Health is a chain from soil biology to gut biology.
Health starts in the soil is more than a slogan – it is a reality.
Now we don’t sell any food – or sell anything for that matter.
We just do three things –
– we write lots of articles about food, soil and health.
We have been doing this since the start of the internet twenty years ago and you can read here on this site in our posts and our older sister site www.waterright.com.au and www.wickingbed.com.au. It’s all free but you just have to read it to get the message.
– we also provide a platform where regenerative farmers, who really understand and care about their soil, can demonstrate how they are using micro-biology to grow food to make us healthy.
You can buy food which will vitalise your health directly from them. It is directly between you and the growers but we do earn a 5% commission on sales to help cover our costs.
– we also carry out many experiments on how to grow food which leads to health. We were a pioneer of Wicking Beds which went viral over twenty years ago and are used in many home gardens but more recently we developed Gbiota beds as a way of improving gut biology by regenerating the soil from minerals and waste organic material to create a genuinely sustainable agricultural system – not just for us but for our grand kids and their grand kids.
Before we started to use toxic chemicals in our food production people had healthy gut biomes. But we can’t go back to the farming methods of a century ago but two modern technologies could be set to provide a viable alternative food system.
The first is this pickandeat.shop web site.
The second is Gbiota beds which were developed to restore gut biology but are largely fed by minerals and compost from food and other wastes and so are sustainable. They are highly productive producing food in commercial volumes from small areas which means food can be grown in or near urban areas.
Buy direct from regenerative farmers
Regenerative farming increases the nutrient and biological quality of the soil leading to healthier food and healthier people.
The aim of this web is to put people who want to eat healthier in contact with regenerative farmers so they can buy directly.
You can buy food from the chemical industrial complex and run the risk of ending up fat and sick and probably having a limb amputated from diabetes.
Buy food, full of phytonutrients from a regenerative farmer grown in high nutrient, toxin free living soil and expect to live a healthy life into old age.
We can help you locate regenerative farmers near you where you can buy a wide variety of produce of your choice which is genuinely fresh, directly from the farmer at an affordable price.
Health starts in the soil
We live in an age dominated by mega corporations who put profit ahead of consequences.
One consequence of our chemical agricultural farming system is the destruction of our soil lacking nutrients and vitality and loaded with toxic chemicals – another is the chronic health epidemic of obesity, diabetes, dementia etc.
But there is a world wide trend among some enlightened farmers to adopt regenerative farming enhancing the soil for future generations and growing food for health.
This is personal – my wife Xiulan was diagnosed with diabetes, started to loose her eye sight, fell down a flight of stairs and after a successful operation to fix her bones her foot started to turn black and the doctors started talking about amputation. Being a blind cripple is not fun.
Fortunately Xiulan, a qualified doctor, revised her diet and now has her health back.
But how can people concerned about their health buy food grown by a regenerative farmer? That’s why I set up pickandeat.shop to link these concerned people to regenerative farmers so they can buy healthy food directly from them at a reasonable price.
Right now we have many people suffering from diabetes or related health problems who are anxious to buy food free of toxic chemicals.
What we are really looking for are regenerative farmers – if interested please contact me at [email protected]
