Heal your body; heal the planet

Would you like to Heal your body while simultaneously helping to replenish Mother Earth?When Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”, he was referring to the bodies amazing ability to regenerate when given the nutrients and minerals that food provides. With all the sickness in our society one might ask the question ” what is causing people to become ill?” Well I’m glad you asked because I am going to tell you. It is because the food most people consume is void of nutrition and choked full of harmful substances. There are too many chemicals and toxins in our food chain; from preservatives and synthetic sweeteners in the food to the chemicals and hazardous waste that is depleting our soils and polluting the earth. We need to collectively join forces to heal ourselves and the planet as it takes the brunt of this abuse. One solution to this problem is to start growing your own food in a sustainable way and support local organic food producers by purchasing locally instead of from the corporate chain store. This serves several purposes,for one it supports the local economy, second it builds community, 3rd it is more efficient and less wasteful, and finally it is more nutritious and better tasting. When you grow food sustainably, you are actually building the soil instead of depleting it and the foods that come forth are delicious and full of life. So do yourself and the planet a favor and start being more mindful of the quality of food you consume and where it comes from and how it is grown, “You are what you eat”. So “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” as Hippocrates so generously noted!
