We are a team of scientists, farmers, activists, artists, physicians, and lawyers that have come together to facilitate and catalyze a global movement and alliance dedicated to regenerating personal and public health. Our work is based on the fundamental principles that food is medicine, and that human health, mental, physical and spiritual, are directly related to societal, environmental, and planetary health.
Individuals are part of an environmental-health-well-being ecosystem. To maximize this relationship, the health of the individual is achieved only while simultaneously healing our planet. Healthy soil, plants, animals, and people are all part of the same web. The way forward is to move beyond Pill for Ill medicine and reorient our health system to a food-focused medical model. We promote a shift away from the prescription pad to farmers’ markets and our kitchens. How and where we grow our food is the key integral factor to health. Our mission is to educate the way forward to achieve Whole-istic Health.
Pharma to Farm
At the core of the current health paradigm is the notion that a daily dose of various prescription pharmaceutical drugs is necessary to maintain good health. Mainstream medicine does not educate or promote nutritional medicine. It is clear that our health is slipping away with rates of chronic diseases skyrocketing. Consumer pressure from a well-informed population can help us as a global society move away from highly processed and chemical-laden foods, derived from the industrialized mega-farms that permeate our landscapes. Our mission is to educate people on the importance of consuming wholesome organic foods every day, produced by small, local and regional (if possible) farms, based on regenerative, chemical-free agricultural methods, thus moving from Pharma to Farm.
Regain the Terrain
The World Health Organization admits that the global epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, is the leading cause of mortality in the world. These diseases are not transmissible. The cocktail of pesticides in industrial foods along with the serious lack of key nutrients caused by their toxic agricultural practices are major causative factors in this pandemic of multiple chronic diseases. Evidence-based science demonstrates that organic foods produced in healthy, nutrient-enriched soils, without toxic synthetic pesticides, chemical inputs and GMOs, have higher levels of nutrition, especially antioxidants that protect against these chronic diseases.
