Why Organic?

Wanting a snack? Do you want it now and want it cheap? It's all too easy to grab for the first thing you see in a package and forget to think about what you may have actually just eaten. The food we eat isn’t always fresh and now more than ever before, much of it has less nutrients due to soil depletion and the use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and genetically modified seeds. Because processed and non-organic food seem to be "more convenient" and "more affordable", many families have resolved to eating primarily food that contains additives, coloring, preservatives, or has been exposed to several known toxic chemicals during farming and preparation. So what? Why is the food without all that stuff any better? We caught this short video and thought it does a good job of getting to the point.

Is Organic food just a fad or a buzzword? This family doesn't eat organic food because it costs more than conventional food and it just isn't convenient. The Experiment. For the next two weeks this family decided to eat only organic and measure the effect.

By acting as endocrine disruptors, that is, by causing the dysfunction of our glands, toxins from our food and environment are taking a toll on our energy, our vitality, and our quality of life. Our practitioners will often guide patients who show symptoms of being toxic through a detoxification program.  As beneficial as these programs can be, we would much rather see our patients preventing toxicity and disease with small changes everyday. 

What you can do:

  • Eat organic food & minimize processed food

  • Take your "Basics", a multi-vitamin, fish oil, and cal-mag for fundamental nutritional support

  • Work with a holistic practitioner to refine your program, detoxify regularly and chelate out heavy metals as recommended

  • Do a mini-detox with your health practitioner

  • Do not heat food in a microwave in plastic

  • Use glass, polycarbonate or stainless steel water containers

  • Exercise regularly, this supports natural detox

  • Proper sleep

  • Drink purified water

  • Regular elimination

Ideally, with eating right, exercising and keeping our stress levels under control, we should live happily and in excellent health to 100 years. Share your thoughts about this video and eating organic in the comments below and remember to do what you can today to live a healthier tomorrow!
