Stewardship: How it affects disease

I was at a great seminar this past Thursday and Friday learning about how to breed and/or create outstanding, great tasting, healthy, nutritious cows. We touched on other animals but 99 percent of the seminar was on cows.

Stewardship has many definitions as you can learn on Wikipedia. Historically, stewardship was the responsibility given to household servants to bring food and drinks to a castle dining hall. The term was then expanded to indicate a household employee’s responsibility for managing household or domestic affairs.

The following list is from Wikipedia and I will not discuss all of these forms of stewardship as you can look them up on Wikipedia. I do want to touch on Health Stewardship and Religious Stewardship because I think they are related and not able to be separated.

We have reached a point in our nation’s history when there are countless things wrong and we, the people, have got to take the responsibility of correcting the wrongs; our government is corrupt and the elected officials will not change anything for the better. Things just keep getting worse.

Food is the most critical because it is solely responsible for our health. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, degenerative diseases like MS, ALS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Autism, AD, ADHD and  Crohn’s disease (the list goes on and on) are all caused by poor quality foods and toxic chemicals.  What we need are corporations and people that have integrity to provide healthy food. At this point, most of these people could care less if you or I live or die.

What we need are local people selling local healthy food. The idea that large multinational “food” manufacturers are the only ones that can make safe food is ridiculous. You can’t trust large corporations but you can trust yourself (growing your own food in a garden) and you can get to know people by looking them in their eyes and asking questions.

So where does the stewardship come into play?

Maybe we can also use the word “integrity” in addition to stewardship.

In the seminar I attended, the speaker, Gerald Fry, talked about how we treat the cows. The present system for corporate beef from feed lots takes the baby away from the mother at 205 days before the rumen – stomach – is completely formed for digestion. Cows are supposed to convert grass into a healthy food product for our good health, but if they don’t develop properly, they have to eat grain which is totally unhealthy for them and it destroys the beneficial Omega III fatty acids and the CLA’s that are life sustaining to people.

It seems to me that we ought to do the right thing for cows and people.

My wife and I raise and sell grass-fed, non-chemical healthy beef. If I promise grass-fed, non-chemical beef, then I should deliver on my promise. If I feed grain or chemicals (for parasites) or antibiotics, then I have no integrity and my stewardship to the cow and my customer is gone.

In the course of the seminar, four of us (including the speaker Gerald Fry) told the others that we use no chemicals including vaccines that are toxic chemicals. The theory and in practice, if an animal or person is healthy and they eat healthy to have a strong immune system, they do not need vaccines for diseases and chemicals for parasites. To me and to the others, this is stewardship. It is doing the right thing for everyone – the cow and the people.

Stewardship is also a Biblical thing.

Most of the people at the seminar are very strong Christians and they certainly believe in the Bible. Unfortunately, some people have a hard time separating fuzzy science by food manufacturers, feed lots, Land Grant Universities (that are bought and paid for by drug and chemical corporations) and our government.

On the second day of the seminar, two business partners, one a doctor and the other a feed store owner and ranch manager, decided to jump into the fray with a quick comment that good stewardship on cows involves vaccines and chemical wormers. Not one to be shy, I jumped into the fray with a comment about vaccines not being safe for people or animals.

Whether a person believes vaccines are beneficial or not is not the point. Vaccines have never been proven to work by double-blind placebo controlled studies, but when it comes to people and cows, the concern with vaccines is not if they work. The concern is all the toxic chemicals the drug manufacturers use in the manufacture of vaccines. They use heavy metals like mercury, aluminum and chemicals like aspartame, the artificial sweetener and now they have been caught inserting mycoplasmas, a bacterium without a cell wall that the government has been using in biological warfare agents.

The gentleman, in his comment, brought the Bible into the fray implying that if you did not use chemicals then we were not good stewards in a biblical sense. The truth is that whether you believe in health stewardship or religious stewardship is not important. What is important is faith in doing the right thing. The right thing is making life the best we can in as natural a way as possible for animals and people.

If we do the right thing, stewardship will follow, integrity will not be sacrificed and people and cows will be healthier.
