A Farmer’s Responsibility to the People Who Eat His or Her Food By Greg Willis

This is a very good friend whom I respect as being one of the best people in the healthy agriculture movement today. I hope you enjoy this letter as much as I have and that, in the future, you will remember that farmers owe us healthy food to sustain our bodies and minds and our current agriculture system is destroying the people. We must put pressure on the farming community, the FDA and USDA to change their evil ways.

Dr Bob

I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately, prior to going into the hospital to get the first of two new hip replacements.

One question that came to mind is this: Even though the chances of not surviving this kind of operation are around 5 in 100,000 – astronomical odds, really, I asked myself, “If I knew I was going to die tomorrow, what would I say is the most important lesson I’ve learned about Nature?”

It turns out that to me at least, it is the realization that everything there is has a role to play in Nature.  But specifically, I think the most important realization of all these last 45 years of gardening and agriculture is the deeply, deeply spiritual role of the farmer in the world.

I have striven mightily to awaken or reawaken this realization and how important farmers, gardeners and everyone in the food business are to the world.

Steiner said that when there isn’t sufficient spiritual nutrition in our food, we become mentally clumsy, but worse, we lose our Free Will, our thinking is confused and, by extension, it would eventually lead to mass starvation and the demise of Mankind.

We all have a body, a physical body and a soul, our spiritual body that cannot die.  Our physical bodies need physical nutrition to be healthy. Our souls require spiritual nutrition to stay healthy and be able to pierce Maya, the Veil of Delusion, that separates us on Earth from the deeper spiritual realities of the Universe, the Cosmos, Creation, and worse still, separates us from our Divine Creator making the lessons of Unconditional Love, seeing Spirit in all things and all things in Spirit and Self-Realization or the realization that each of us in our souls are a perfect reflection of the Divine, much more difficult to learn.

What I’ve learned over the years and I wish to pass on, is that it is the role of farmers and gardeners, for themselves and others, to grow the most spiritually and physically nutritious food that can possibly be grown.

This is a deeply, deeply spiritual role to play, perhaps one of the most sacred roles of all Mankind and even out into the Universe.  For a farmer to grow food with less than the highest attainable spiritual nutrition deprives all Humanity of that Spiritual Essence of Life, call it Chi, the Breath of Life, the Life Force Current, Prana, Ki or Mana – all words given to this force that animates and informs all life with health, insights and wisdom, even, in the end, Bliss.

The role of the farmer, the spiritual role, is the most sacred of them all for held in their hands is the destiny of Humanity on Earth.

This is a very, very serious responsibility.

I’ve also learned that food grown with chemicals, poisons and to a great extent, genetically engineered, if the intent of the genetic engineering is greed, to make people dependent on the GE company and their seeds and chemicals, at the expense of others and the environment, depletes, or, in some cases, all but eliminates the influx of this Life Force into our foods, the food for our animals, wild animals and even for other plants as they feed off the nutrition of dead plants as humus.

A farmer voluntarily elects to be a farmer.  No one forces them to be a farmer, at least in most cases.  We all have Free Will.  We can opt out at any time.  So this is a voluntary choice, to be a farmer, or grow food for ourselves and our families.  If you believe in reincarnation, you could also extend that to say that a soul picked a family into which to be born that was a farming family to experience this amazing gift – the gift of having the ability to grow food for the benefit of others.

So if asked, I would say that of all the massive amount of insights I’ve received in my life with regard to agriculture, gardening and food in general, this is, in the end, the most important.

Farmers have a deep spiritual responsibility to grow food, especially when it is for others, to be the best they can be and to grow the most nutritious physically and spiritually enriched food.  In that way, that farmer or gardener lives a life of service to Mankind.

“What you think, you grow.”  I’ve said that thousands of times.  Then, as I see it, it is the deep responsibility of farmers, gardeners, horticulturists, ranchers and everyone associated with our food production from start to finish, seeking out the best ways to grow food.

The current paradigm, as most of you know I’ve talked about endlessly, is to kill everything that competes with our crops and eat whatever is left.  This destroys the Life Force in our plants, our soul food.

There is a better way and that is to discover the root causes for plant diseases and pests, low yields and low quality and all the other problems plaguing agriculture.  Agriculture needs to change their practices to do better.  All the information is available.  There is no need to spray pesticides, for example, if you just realize that by increasing the Brix levels in your crop, most if not all of the pests will die or drop off in one to three days.  That’s what BrixUp™ does.  No poisons.  No chemicals.  No GMOs.  Just LOVE.  In a bottle.

And that, then my dear friends, is the basis for all farming.  Love.  And respect for Nature which is Spirit in its infinity of combinations and expressions of Spirit.

A farmer or gardener cannot do battle with Nature and expect to create the highest levels of physical and spiritual nutrition.  It just doesn’t happen.

 

So that gets me back to the original question.  If there is one thing I would like to teach people in this world, it is to Love God and to view their role as farmers, gardeners, ranchers and horticulturists as a freely chosen, deeply, deeply spiritual undertaking that effects like no other job the highest calling, the highest Truth and the greatest Love for all of Mankind, all living things, as Individualized Expressions of Spirit, and the most profound love of the Divine Creator of All.

Can we Lose Weight or get rid of Diabetes without Changing Anything?

The resounding answer to this question is a big NO!

We all see things on TV and other media along with the internet and the message is the same, if you buy our product we can help you get rid of diabetes without changing your eating habits.

Folks this “ain’t” ever going to work. If you have cancer, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, Autism, learning problems, Crohn’s disease, or anything else (most people can recover from these problems if they change their lives) there is an excellent chance your body can heal itself if you change everything in your life. The first thing is changing your food from sugar, grains, potatoes, vegetable oil, MSG, HFCS, toxins in water, and air pollution (in door).

After all this is said the point of this newsletter is that I have found a new product with some research technology from 2008 that appears to let people lose about 28 pounds in 10 weeks by drinking a healthy water infusion fruit extraction in a non-toxic bottle. The product is not expensive and it tastes great.

I am including the article about the African Mango/Irvingia extract that is put into the Reign water from Beyond Organic. The information is excellent and information from Jordan Rubin that owns Beyond Organic is also outstanding.

As usual I do not recommend anything that I have not done so I have ordered our fruit infusion and of course I do not eat any processed foods or sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup. You can check out the products on my website www.drbobod.mybeyondorganic.com

 

Information on Reign Fruit Infusion to lose weight

 

This is clinical trial information that you can look up or read below on the African Mango.  The weight loss benefits are in the studies.

The Reign Fruit Infusion drink from Beyond Organic www.drbobod.mybeyondorganic.com has the same amount of African Mango/Irvingia in it as was used in this study (150 mg).

 

If you or family and friends are trying to lose weight I would suggest that you try this product. Take 2 bottles a day on an empty stomach and see how it works for you and others. The results look pretty impressive.

 

Please let me know if any of you need any questions answered.

 

African Mango: What if you found out that there was a super food that when tested on humans was found to help the average person lose an average of 28 pounds in 10-weeks?

In a controlled study published in the Journal of Nutrition 2008,

people taking this new compound lost 28 pounds over a 10-week

period compared to less than 3 pounds in the placebo group.

 

Different than other weight loss studies that mandate at least

some moderation in food intake, these study participants did not

alter their diet in any way. What is this super compound you might ask?

It’s called Irvingia and it’s found in African Mango. This new compound has shown better weight loss results than any hormone, drug, or food in medical history! Irvingia works in 4 Fantastic ways:

 

First, it works with adiponectin to increase insulin sensitivity

 

Second, it balances the hormone Leptin which signals your

brain to burn fat

 

Third, decreases amount of blood glucose that turns into fat

 

Fourth, it blocks the enzyme amylase from digesting starches

that would have become sugar.

In the 2 most popular clinical studies done on Irvingia (African mango) 150mg was taken twice daily and participants lost 12.8 pounds in 4 weeks and 28 pounds in 10 weeks.

 

The highest quality product that contains African Mango and that is easily obtained and easily consumed is Reign Fruit

Infusion drink made by Beyond Organic.

 

Clinical Studies:

African Mango
After 10 weeks on 150 milligrams of African mango twice a day, patients weighed 23.32 lbs pounds less than patients given placebo. The African mango group lost 5.1 inches in waist circumference and lost 4.4% more body fat than placebo group. Total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol values were also decreased.

Ngondi JL, Etoundi BC, Nyangono CB, Mbofung CM, Oben JE. IGOB131, a novel seed extract of the West African plant Irvingia gabonensis, significantly reduces body weight and improves metabolic parameters in overweight humans in a randomized double-blind placebo controlled investigation. Lipids in Health and Disease. 2009;(8):7.

After one month of 1.05 grams of African mango three times a day, patients lost 8.8 pounds, 1.8 inches of hip size and 2.4 inches of waist circumference. Patients on placebo did not significantly lose weight or decrease size.

African mango added to another supplement has a synergistic effect, increasing weight loss in obese or overweight patients more than with just the first ingredient.

More Weight Loss than Any

Other Discovery in History!

In a breakthrough that may reverse today’s epidemic of obesity, a natural compound has been discovered that circumvents the molecular factors involved in obesity.

 

In a recent controlled study, people taking this new compound lost an average of 28 pounds in a 10-week period.  Unlike other weight-loss studies that mandate at least some moderation in food intake, these study participants did not alter their diet in any way!

 

There have been many drugs, hormones and supplements introduced over the years to help with weight loss, probably the most notable being Leptin.  When scientists discovered that Leptin signaled the brain to burn fat, they couldn’t have been more excited.  When given to mice, Leptin caused weight loss of 40% after only 33 days.  The problem was that Leptin did not work in Humans due to our “Leptin Resistance” keeping the Leptin from entering our cells and doing its job.

 

Another problem with weight-loss supplements is the “survival instincts” of the fat cells themselves.  Much like cancer cells, fat cells deploy several survival mechanisms when their existence is threatened.  No supplement, hormone, or drug has ever been able to circumvent the natural ability of fat cells to propagate and retain excess fat – until now!

 

Introducing Irvingia – an extract from African Mango found in Reign Fruit Infusion.

 

Irvingia has been shown to work via multiple pathways to promote effective fat loss.

 

  1. Reducing the absorption of sugar      (inhibiting a-amylase activity)
  2. Reducing glucose levels and      insulin induced lipogenesis (A.K.A reduced insulin sensitivity)
  3. Inhibiting the conversion of      glycerol to triglycerides (reducing fat cell triglycerides and the      glucose-3-phophate dehydrogenase enzyme)
  4. Reducing Leptin resistance      (reducing CRP binding to Leptin)
  5. Lowering serum Leptin levels (Leptin      unable to be used by the cells)
  6. Increasing anti-inflammatory,      anti-atherogenic, and anti-diabetic effects (increasing adiponectin      levels)

 

With all of these benefits working together, weight-loss was only one of the benefits of Irvingia shown in these studies.

 

Weight Loss Glucose Levels LDL Levels

28 pounds

Down 22%

Down 27%

Adiponectin   Levels Serum Leptin   Levels CRP Levels

Up 160%

Down 49%

Down 52%

 

These studies found that the dosage of Irvingia required to produce these results is 150 mg taken twice daily.

 

Beyond Organic’s Reign Fruit Infusion has 150 mg of this compound in each bottle. Two bottles per day are all you need to reap these rewards.
