We all repeatedly hear about how dangerous CHEMICALS are.  But like anything else…some are and some are not.  For instance, you body is made up of chemicals…all very necessary to your body’s capacity to function.

The air you breath is made up of oxygen – a chemical we couldn’t survive without.  But the air is also made up of pollutant chemicals that are harmful to the body – typically man made synthetic chemicals.  The water you drink is made up of hydrogen and oxygen – two chemicals we require.  It is all the synthetic toxic chemicals that pollute water that are bade for us.  Likewise, plants are made up of chemicals – we need many of them to survive.  Some of them are toxic and we have to be careful of them.   the problem we typically have is with all the man made synthetic insecticides, herbicides, POPs, PCBs,herbs & spices etc that are sprayed onto the plants and used to fertilize the soils that are toxic for us.danger_pesticidesDr Holly no to GMO images (2)

Again, it is the man made synthetic chemicals that are toxic.

Unfortunately, because we have such ineffective labeling regulations; poor organic definitions; etc etc the foods we eat are ineffective for our bodies, to say the least.  Why?  Well as we all know greed is definitely a part of the problem.  Ignorance on the part of consumers is part of the problem.  Marketing is part of the problem.  Overpopulation and insufficient food is part of the problem along with countries that in turn waste so much food are part of the problem.

The question is – are YOU part of the PROBLEM?  OR part of the SOLUTION?

Do you demand organic food?  Do you read your labels?  OR Do you support those that provide you with artificial, synthetic, microwaved, pasteurized, nutrient deficient, toxic laden “food” OR do you go the extra mile to get REAL food.   Remember what Hippocrates (the father of Western Medicine) said:  “Your food is your medicine and your medicine is your food”.  Unfortunately, we have allowed man’s greed and shortsightedness to change this REAL medicine into a toxin – and then we go and get synthetic artificial prescription drugs to deal with the symptoms – crazy!!

The body does amazing things with the nutrients we provide it – from making 2 million red blood cells a minute to all of the immune cells to replacing hair, bone, muscle, organ tissues, etc to constantly creating neurotransmitters, hormones, peptides, enzymes, anti-oxidants, etc etc…AND it needs nutrients to do this – it can’t create or regenerate from synthetic, toxic chemicals.

When we feed it toxins, whether in the form of synthetic foods or synthetic medicines, we destroy the microbiota (the bacteria that we require),  the immune system, the endocrine system (hormonal systems), etc and we end up with inflammatory conditions (like arthritis, fibromyalgia, heart disease, etc) and allergies, diabetes, cancer and depression/anxiety.  This is nuts.

We do have choices, however.  We can grow our own; we can buy real organic foods; we can support our local growers that take the time and energy to grow REAL food/medicine.  We can chose to take care of our bodies, or we can suffer the consequences.
