Hi Folks - The gardens are really growing beautifully now. We're harvesting spring-greens for the S. Benton Food Pantry and our CSA boxes and busily planting out crops - both inside and outside the greenhouses.
This post features a link to a very important video by an amazing doctor, Zach Bush who details the connections between the health of soil and our physical health.
Over the past thirty years, our food system has become increasingly more toxic at the same time that there have been radical increases in many chronic illnesses. It's only reasonable to assume that many of these disease conditions are the result of depleted soils and ever more toxic chemicals in our environment. Many people have become increasingly dependent on the so-called "health-care" industry (which is often more about "disease-care" if you really look at it!) - seeking health through dependence on pharmaceutical drugs and a woefully misinformed medical establishment rather than taking responsibility for healthy life-style choices.
This video contains important info that you won't find through the main-stream media or from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization or other main-stream health professionals. We hope you'll take the time to watch the video all the way through. We think you will find this info both informative and inspirational.
LINK to video: Chemical Farming & The Loss of Human Health - Dr. Zach Bush
Dr. Zach Bush (image: below) is as an MD
who specializes in internal medicine and endocrinology, who is also an
internationally recognized thought leader on the importance of
microbiomes when it comes to health, disease, and nutrition. He’s doing
remarkable work to save our planet, and he believes that we still have
an opportunity to reverse the damage done and create the most verdant,
bio-diverse planet to have ever existed.
Dr Bush says on his site:“My work is dedicated to the health of humanity and the planet we call home. It is critical that our pursuit of optimal health and longevity begin with an effort toward a collective rise in consciousness such that we would begin to thrive within nature, instead of fighting that nature that is life itself.
If you'd like more info, here is a beautifully written post
about Dr Bush's work published on the Natural Blaze news aggregate. It
features several other video clips as well.
