If you ask for my worth, then you should honor what I value, and that is my choice and "right" to know what I ingest.
Without this option, we can't call ourselves free nor or we working together for a better society, especially for our future.
"Whatever you are committed is only as good as your commitment to yourself and your health."
A new consciousness is forming towards our food and health initiatives. Our focus is now on local farming and member owned cooperative business denatured by the effects of GMOs, heavy metals, preservatives, dyes, hormones, while we also must work to enhance the intestinal microbiome that has been affected since birth. These must be addressed so we can nourish ourselves at the organelle level.
Food quality and Integrative medicine is challenging the typical medical association approach that is limited in resolving health issues; and, mostly designed to relieve symptoms. The health of our intestinal flora, and the reduction of inflammation are two core components of health. Emunctory and lymphatic functioning is a major part of our health as well.
Carnivore, Vegetarian, Frutarian, Pescatarian, Herbivore or Vegan, the body needs a combination of foods in the proportion to the lifestyle and function it plans to perform. In every thing we consume, there is a push and a pull, a benefit or a detriment. An Olympic Bob-sledder uses food differently than a ballet dancer, a soccer player, a chess player, a musician, or an NFL athlete. Everyone has a unique bio-chemistry and genome. And, every culture over time adapts for survival by finding the combination with their own ecosphere.
Agriculture and farming is about nature and biology. Mass crop and animal production conventionally used is not working and will not work long term. While we must consume off the land and ecosystem, we also must protect our land and water in order to sustain our nourishment in the United States; to sustain as people and not rely on other countries for imports from soil we have no control.
As a collective, we have the power to change what is offered to us nutritionally. It behooves us to unite capitalism with biodiversity of nature for the future of our nation and world. Permaculture, Regenerative, and Organic farming, whether in mass or a small garden, increases the carbon our soil needs and these three need to be the goal we adopt. It can resolve the population growth and feed the masses. Connier Nordan
Once in a while you stumble upon the truth,
but most of us manage to pick ourselves up and hurry along as if nothing happened.
