Regarding a recent
question on the Probiotics supplements:
We feel that
food, as nature created it, has sustained humankind for thousands of years
and does not need to be improved upon. How could a research lab make a "perfect"
food or supplement? According the the research by the company which manufactures,
"Primal Defense", the HSO's (homeostatic soil organisms), the beneficial soil
bacteria, are definitely in food which has been just picked from healthy soil.
The HSO's are contained in the cellulose of the plant and will begin to dissipate
and die after a period of 6 hours. So, as you can see, there is NOT ONE item
in a modern grocery store or even a health food store that would have live
HSO's in it...unless there was something for sale that was growing in a pot
of organic soil. The only way we can get them in a natural form, as nature
created them, is to pick fruit, vegetables and leafy greens right from the
soil to our mouths. That is why we advocate the growing of the baby greens
indoors on a consistent, regular basis to assure that we are getting an adequate
supply of these organisms in our I.G. (intestinal garden). The research states
that HSO's are a "transient" bacteria, which means that they do their work
and then leave the body in a period of 4 to 6 days, and therefore have to
be ingested on a daily basis. Of course, in addition, whenever possible,
it is marvelous to have vegetables that can be eaten raw, (all cooked food
is dead, containing no enzymes or live HSO's) right out of an organic garden,
which would also be supplying these indispensable little Dirt Devas. Sprouts
grown in a jar will supply the body with loads of vitamin C and other vitamins,
minerals and enzymes, but DO NOT contain the HSO's. Only plants grown on
healthy, composted soil contains these beneficial bacteria.
Eating these little live plants, (buckwheat greens, wheat grass, etc.) grown on soil containing the HSO's, has really made a difference in our level of health, and we have achieved it without the use of any kind of supplements, which we feel are not natural and probably a burden to the body, rather than a boost. Of course Biogenic nutrition teaches the whole picture of also getting off the Biocidic foods, which not only destroys the HSO's, but leaves undigested, putrefied food in the I.G. as a perfect breeding ground for the molds, yeasts, fungi and parasites, which are so devastating to the health of the body.
Kevin and I are just sharing what we know as teachers of Biogenic Living and from our own personal experience and from our own desire to return to a more basic, primal lifestyle. And, of course, a natural diet is a foundation to such a way of living. We are not experts in the field of nutrition and have no desire to become experts. We just want to share what we feel is a reasonable, common sense, practical, cost-efficient, self-reliant way to maintain excellent health.
May you all be well and peaceful and happy! Donna
