Real food by its very nature is designed to nourish, fuel, restore, and heal. Down to the cellular level of our bodies. Whole and real food does not make us sick. Food can be a form of the most powerful medicine, truly.
100 years ago, all food was organic. All food was grown for all people without synthetic pesticides. All animals were raised on pasture and ate more consistent with their natural diets. *Cows don’t eat corn in nature and chickens aren’t vegetarians, by the way. All animals were exposed to sun, grass, and the elements. No foods had been altered at their basic genetic structure. No chemical dyes. No flavor enhancers. No artificial preservatives. No mile long and impossible to pronounce ingredients lists. Just real, whole food.
The balance of beneficial microbes in our soul, of the plants, of the animals, and of our own bodies has been drastically shifted in even just the last generation or two. There are more and more emerging studies revealing all of these microscopic ecosystems have been drastically impacted due to diet, farming practices, pesticides, toxicants, pollution, and more.
All this change has occurred in a relatively short amount of time. We are the experiment. The soil is contaminated and weakened, the animals are sick, produce is greatly lacking in the vitamins, minerals, and nutritional value it once had, the air is polluted, the water is polluted from runoff and contamination to groundwater.
It’s not just the food that’s causing chronic illness to be at an all time high, but food absolutely plays a huge role. How it’s produced impacts all elements. What is consumed impacts us. Down to our cells.
The toxic load we face is multifaceted. It contributes to the plague of chronic illness, food sensitivities, autoimmune disorders, cancers and the like on the rise. What we’ve allowed to happen to our food is a major contributing factor.
We’re changing this. One bite, one meal, one home garden, one purchase at a time. We’re reaping benefits in our own health now and we’re sowing a better harvest for the future. Together.
