Grow nutrient dense, healing foods
right in your garden.

Yes, your backyard garden vegetables can be healing foods! Hippocrates said: "Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food." What did he know that we might need to learn? Might it have been that trace minerals are so very important?

The human body was created to be healthy. When given a nutritious diet, the immune system will be strong and the body can avoid most diseases, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Then why do we see so much disease these days?

What Causes Disease?

  • A poor diet
  • A sedate lifestyle
  • Environmental toxins
  • Emotional burdens like fear, stress, and anger

The Path to Vibrant Health

We all know what to do about the sedate lifestyle. Get some exercise!

Concerning environmental toxins, juicing vegetables is a way to help detox from these, plus we can reduce these by avoiding chlorinated water, junk food, and GMO foods (most corn, soy, and canola products).

Of course, one of the greatest sources of environmental toxins comes from processed foods, with all their ARTIFICIAL colors, flavors and preservatives.

Have you ever heard, "You are what you eat?"

Which Foods are Healing Foods?

Some foods are so much better for us than others. We have a choice. Why not choose foods that are packed with nutrients, instead of empty calories? Here are some suggestions:

  1. Brown rice (much more nutritious than white rice)

  2. Brown bread, preferably from freshly milled wheat

  3. Sweet potatoes (loaded with nutrients!) as opposed to white potatoes.

  4. Raw sugar (which still has 43 nutrients, white sugar has only 3)

  5. Raw dairy products (alive with enzymes, not damaged by pasteurization and homogenization)

  6. Plenty of organic raw fruits and vegetables. Beware of non-organic fruits and vegetables, as many of these have been irradiated. This is done to increase shelf life, but it kills all the beneficial bacteria and enzymes.

  7. Vegetable and fruit juices that you juice daily are healing foods.

  8. Good sources of fat and protein, including raw nuts and seeds, free range poultry and their eggs, fish caught in the wild, grass fed beef and lamb, olive, coconut and palm oils, unpasteurized dairy products.

  9. Seaweeds, sprouts, grasses and herbs.

The best source of healthy foods to eat is the nutritious foods grown in your garden.
