Most of us are familiar with the exquisite taste of vegetables produced by a home garden, especially if they were organically grown. Just take the taste test and compare a supermarket tomato with one you grew in your backyard. Why such a difference? It’s all about microorganisms. In healthy soil, when plants and animals die, microorganisms decompose them and create many beneficial byproducts that are absorbed back into the soil. The soil now has a living charge of organic energy or life force. This is why the food grown in it is so tasty.
One of these highly charged taste-promoting elements is fulvic acid, which is abundant in well composted soil. In such soil, plants that uptake fulvic acid are able to speed up their chemical reactions by increasing enzyme activity and hydrate faster than they could without fulvic acid. When soil is depleted of its minerals and then covered with commercial fertilizers and pesticides, the microbial activity is destroyed.
The same biodiversity that exists in healthy soil also exists in the gut, provided that the beneficial bacteria found in nature are well supplied to your physical body. It is believed that up to 80 percent of our immune function is dependent on gut biodiversity. This is why getting beneficial bacteria from our food is essential for good health.
The most popular pesticide in common use today is glyphosate, according to the medical journal Entropy (2013, 1416-1463). It is implicated in autism, Alzheimer’s, cancer, depression, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. The reason for this is that glyphosate inhibits and destroys a valuable biological system in the body known as cytochrome P450. The medical profession uses P450 tests to see if patients have enough enzymes to metabolize a drug or not. It’s the reason so many drugs fail to work.
You see, when we destroy the favorable flora of the intestines by eating chemically enhanced food products, we impair our immune systems.
According to an abstract from the National Institutes of Health, “Environmental toxins such as glyphosate, as well as naturally occurring components of our food, such as gluten [are indicated as the trigger for many diseases]. Intestinal epithelial barrier dysfunction is increasingly recognized as an early step in the pathogenesis of many acute and chronic inflammatory diseases.” A long list of diseases follows in the article.
Human health begins with the soil. Healthy organic soil has an abundance of microorganisms and fulvic acid, which increase the cells’ ability to reject and release toxic metals and other harmful elements from our bodies. Some of the best sources of fulvic acid are shilajit, which comes from volcanic rock in the Himalayan mountains, and blackstrap molasses.
In order for our bodies to stay hydrated and make and utilize enzymes, the intestines must have healthy bacteria, which tighten the bowel lining, preventing many of our inflammatory diseases. Just like the soil requires microorganisms to break down organic matter, our gut requires the same microorganisms in abundance. If the food we eat comes from healthy soil, we’ll have healthy bacteria and healthy bodies!
Wishing you a healthy day,
p.s. Would you like to meet me in person? I am only doing one event this year. It’s this September and you can get all the details RIGHT HERE. I sure would love to see you there!
