News flash for Gbiota club members
When the virus has gone, as it surely will, the world will be a very different place. People will understand that the best protection against the next virus, which again will surely come, is to have a population with a healthy immune system.
70% of our immune system comes from a health gut and a healthy gut come by adding to our diet food that feeds our guts. 90% of the people that have died from this virus have been eating a poor diet lacking essential phytonutrients, trace minerals and beneficial biology.
People in aged care die because they are living on highly processed food lacking these basic essentials not simply because they are old.
If you have a strong immune system from feeding you guts you may get the virus and have no symptoms, if you have a weak immune system you may die. Difficult decision eh!
Now I have been a bit fanatical about gut food since my wife, a qualified surgeon and medical doctor became diabetic, here foot started to turn black and they were talking about chopping it off (and she has nice legs). We avoided this by growing healthy food in our garden. so I have been happy enough growing food and writing articles on my web and blogs to share with the community the information about how to grow gut food.
I now realise that is not enough, I want to help create a new industry of local micro farms and home gardeners growing healthy gut food. But I am old (eighty and still fit, healthy and active) was an early pioneer and innovator in the computer aided revolution, no Bill Gates but earning a living is not an issue for me.
But a local micro farms is a business which has to support a family, I can offer technical advice on growing gut food I am not a financial person so I am working with Link, a well respected firm of chartered accountants and financial advisers in Brisbane city. I choose them because the directors have a personal interest in gut biology and they have a subsidiary specialising in internet marketing, which will be critical in the local micro farm industry.
I am working with them to produce a manual on how to set up and run a local micro farm and paying hobby home grown business.
This will be a professionally produced but I suggest you have a read of my first draft, really just a brain dump.
Now let us be clear, I am not asking for money, this is going to be an expensive project and I am happy to put up the seed capital but I need to know for sure that there are people out there who want to set up a local micro farm business and equally important that there are enough people who will buy from them.
If the community wants access to healthy gut food it needs to support the growers who put the health of the community above short term profits.
So I need your help.
Market research with prepared forms is pretty useless at finding out what people are really thinking, what really matters is peoples first thoughts when they come across a new idea.
So what I am asking you to do is to send me a very short email. email@example.com
Start with a few key words about yourself, young or old, rich or poor, city or rural and whether you are interested in setting up a micro farming business (to earn a living), a home gardener who is happy to earn a bit of extra pocket money or if you have an interest in buying locally grown gut food how you would want to buy, are you happy to buy on line, want delivery to your home or you will pick up from a food hub or whether you just want to go out for a meal to a cafe that includes gut food in their menu.
Don’t think about it – just put down a few phrases that summarises you immediate reaction.
Just three requests
– use ‘local micro farm’ as your subject so I find it among all my junk mail
– be honest if you like chicken wings and chips, think supermarket and just taking a pill supplement is OK and convenient, and you just pay lip service to healthy food just say so.
– drag your friends, real and on line into this so we get a real feeling for what people really think.
I commit to reading every message but if you want a more detailed chat just put ‘want to chat’ in your message so I can get back to you later after the first wave of emails.
Our guts do much more than help us digest our food. Our guts are part of the system which acts as an intelligent control system regulating our appetite, what and how much we eat and where and how much is stored as fat in our bodies. They are home to 70% of our immune system. 90% of people who die from the virus have been eating a diet lacking essential ingredients.
A healthy gut is critical to our health and increasing our health span*.
If we eat the right sort of food we have a healthy gut and can expect a long healthy life,
If we eat the wrong sort of food our guts sense the lack of essential nutrients creating food cravings which lead to the chronic diseases of diabetes, obesity, heart attacks and dementia.
We need to incorporate into our diet gut food, Gbiota food, full of the food our guts thrive on – fibre, essential minerals and phytonutrients particulalry what our bugs like even more than ice cream – fibre. These come from the soil so we need a nutrient rich biologically active soil.
Ok you may say, I like the idea of eating health food but is it too expensive. 100% wrong. The main input is waste food and organic material which is not only a waste product but actually costs money to otherwise dispose of and pollutes our atmosphere.
Gbiota food is increases our health span, lowers the risk of diabetes, obesity, heart attacks, dementia improves our immune system and the chances of dying from the virus and is actually cheaper.
So what is the snag? Gbiota food does not come from a supermarket in pretty boxes and supported by a multi billion dollar advertising campaign it comes from a farm down the road.
That is what Gbiota beds are for.
* life span is how long we live, health span is how long we remain fit, active and healthy

Has the world gone crazy?
Just a few moments looking at any screen is enough to make anyone think the world has gone crazy, whether its the virus, autocratic Governments, the controllers of our mega corporations putting profits ahead of public benefit, climate change, the destruction of the planet, a food system which is damaging our health it’s enough to make anyone wonder.
And those helpful individuals who point out how much worse things were before, – two worlds wars, nuclear destruction, the great depression, the Spanish flue – trying to make us think that things are not so bad, make things even worse.
Yet the fact remains that we are the most successful creature on the planet and our success comes from three simple causes.
First we are an intelligent creature, more than any other creature – artificial intelligence may perform calculations many times faster and remember more data than we can even dream off it still cannot develop new concepts like us humans or even show common sense.
Secondly we are adaptable. We have spread over the surface of the earth adapting to different conditions and thrived. When we fail it is because we fail to adapt.
Climate change is not an intrinsic problem, there is enough energy falling on a few square kilometre to provide all the power we need – but we fail to adapt.
We are producing enough energy food to feed the entire worlds population for years to come, we know we need food to replace our body parts and our guts which work as part of our intelligent control system which makes us overeat if it senses a deficiency – but we fail to adapt.
We are destroying our soils which are the essence of life – yet we fail to adapt.
Thirdly we are naturally a cooperative species. Put us naked in a natural environment and we have little chance of surviving let alone breeding, yet as a group we thrive.
Yet we often forget these three basic human characteristics which make us so successful.
