Health starts in the soil
The trillions of cells in our guts do far more than digest our food, they form part of an intelligent control system which manages our bodies, in particular how much and where we store fat.
We need to store fat, that is what our bums are for, they are round and chubby to store essential fats. But if our control system is not working properly we store fat in the wrong places, in our vital organs, particularly the pancreas when we become diabetic, in our brains when we get dementia or anywhere and every where when we become obese.
Science has yet to work out how this intelligent control system really works.
Partly because we are all on a spectrum, some people can eat whatever they like and always stay skinny, others can be fanatical about their diet and still end up fat.
But we can study the blue zones where people not only live to a ripe old age but are fit and healthy in old age. These blue zones are all over the world but they have one thing in common – they all eat vegetables grown in nutrient rich, biologically active soil free of toxic chemicals. This diet has clearly moved the spectrum so more people are healthy.
The Gbiota ™bed technology were developed based on on observations of traditional societies to enhance gut health. Eating food grown in a Gbiota ™bed does not guarantee that you will cure diabetes, avoid dementia or avoid getting fat but it may improve the odds. But is is very easy to test for a particular individual if it is changing your gut biota and your intelligent control system.
I am a natural pig, I love good food and get food cravings. But every morning I have a green smoothy made from Gbiota ™food. This two minute video shows how. I stop feeling hungry and having food cravings and I know it is changing my gut biota by the number of times and ease of going to the toilet.
You can test is yourself. The Gbiota technology is in the public domain under the Creative Commons system. Read more. If you are into gardening you can make your own Gbiota bed.
If this is not your scene you can form a local group and persuade a local grower to set up a system for you, although the grower has to follow certain procedures to ensure quality control when offering Gbiota™ food for sale to the public.
There is a mass of information on this web site in the pages (how to) and posts section on the menu and on the sister web site www.waterright.com.au on how the way we grow our food affects our health but if you want more information contact me at email@example.com
Community supported agriculture
But around the world there is a growing movement of community supported agriculture where the community and farmers work together, you can read about this global movement at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Community-supported_agriculture
There are many schemes but the system we promote is very simple. Form a local community or group from;-
biofoodies – that is people who want to eat food grown in nutrient rich biologically active soil, free of chemical toxins.
regenies – regenerative farmers who focus on the quality of their living soil and
groupies who really run the group and organise the group and system where the biofoodies order produce on line from multiple regenies so the produce is collected from the regenies farms in the morning and delivered to the homes of the biofoodies in the afternoon.
Steps in creating community supported agriculture
– find groupies to start and run group
– recruit biofoodies to establish buying power
– recruit regenies to grow produce
– community decide what plants they want
– regenies plant and grow selected varieties and place on web
– biofoodies place orders
– groupies organise boxing (van)
– van visited every farm placing each order in box
– van delivers produce to biofoodies home
If this interest you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating whether you may wish to participate as a biofoodie, regenie or groupie or all and indicate the locality in which you live.
This video explains why and how
This web site has been up for a few weeks now and is really resonating with sections of the public – particularly diabetics and soon to be and new mums who fully understand the importance of diet on health and are anxious to buy. What we really need now are regenerative farmers to meet this demand.
It cost nothing to create a page promoting how you farm and we are happy to help you set up your page. Why not email me at email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
