Rethink food

Rethink food

We need to rethink food. In my life time, which is minuscule in comparison with how long humanoids have been on this earth, the global population has increased but a factor of three – totally unprecedented in human history – but food production has increased by a factor of 4.3 – at least in calorie terms that’s almost 50% faster than the increase in human population.

Let me tell you a story about food. In our modern society all we seem to want as adults is a catch phrase ‘Make plum pudding tasty again’ or better a photo on their smart phone with a catchy caption.

Gut health

Gut health

Our gut is one of the most important organs in our body – made up of trillions of cells that communicate with each other – it has real intelligence – our gut brain – which controls much of our body functions.

You simply cannot be healthy without a healthy gut and that means you have to feed it and that is what Gbiota food is all about.

Mother bed

Mother bed

Gbiota beds were developed to grow plants to feed our guts. Technically they have been successful but may be a bit complex for many people, particularly pregnant ladies and mums who determine gut biology for our future life.
Everyone should be able to access healthy gut food at an affordable price so we need to develop a new system for distributing gut food. Experienced growers, either amateur or profession will set up full scale Gbiota beds to grow Gbiota soil.

Action plan for gut health

Action plan for gut health

People don’t get fat and sick simply because they just happen to eat too much, they get fat and sick because their gut brain is not working as it should – so then they end up eating too much.

Our gut is not strictly part of us and we, or rather our mum, has to make it for us from the food she eats and feeds us as a baby and by the close physical contact mums give their babies. It is the one organ we can readily change – particularly when young.

Why our gut brain is so important
Our gut is one of the most important organs in our body. It contains trillions of cells which communicate with each, like in a supercomputer, to form a real brain with intelligence. (see references)

It controls our appetite, manufactures the complex chemicals needed to replace our body parts as they wear or age and host much of our immune system. It is not actually part of us but is really important.

Over hundreds of thousands of years we have evolved a gut brain that automatically looks after us, without us even thinking about it – and it does it much better than weighing micro grams of minerals.

Opportunity

We all have to eat and the way we are currently growing our food is slowly but inevitably destroying our planet’s ability to grow the food we need. We are destroying our soils and aquifers on which our lives depend and making ourselves sick in the process.

Gbiota boxes

The purpose of GBiota beds is to breed beneficial biology in the soil. This biology enters the plants growing in the soil so when we eat the plants they act as natural pre pro biotics as well us providing valuable nutrients but key point of Gbiota beds is to provide us with the beneficial biology.

This is an update on the practical side of making and managing Gbiota beds. I assume you are familiar with the previous publications and videos available under videos, blogs and growing in the menu.
The major developments are the use of the compost tube to give better and faster composting and the conversion of the school bed from Wicking bed to a Gbiota bed and the use of a solar powered pump.

Food and becoming adult

Our bodies have an inbuilt intelligent control system which regulates all aspect of our bodies including our appetite. The wide variety of species of micro biology in our gut is an integral part of this intelligent control system and our modern food system is destroying this essential micro biology.

My interest is how to grow plants that improve our gut brain – one of the most vital organs in our bodies and the key to health.

Our gut brain

Our gut brain

Modern food contains a surplus of energy food (fats and sugars) but is sadly lacking in the complex chemicals needed to regenerate our bodies. Our bodies sense this lack, sending out hunger signals leading to the current health epidemic of excess storage of fat, diabetes, heart attacks and dementia.

Adapting to the food crisis

Adapting to the food crisis

Learning how to adapt to the food crisis is the most important skill we can teach our kids. That means understanding how the world is changing then helping them change their behaviour to adapt.

School Garden Project

School Garden Project

In our gut are a huge number of micro organisms which talk to each to create an intelligent system – our gut brain.

This gut brain controls our appetite, supports our immune system and produces many of the complex chemicals needed to replace our body parts as they wear.

The essence

The essence

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.

Yesterday the world changed. New Zealand has an explosion of new Corona cases. NZ was a beacon of hope.

This shows just how contagious this virus is and how we are all exposed until this virus is eliminated from the face of the earth.

Intelligent control

We evolved eating wild foods, rich in nutrients but low in sugars and fats which are our natural energy source. Evolving over millions of years on a low energy diet means we are extremely efficient extractors of energy foods.

Choosing a Gbiota smoothie

The main aim of a Gbiota smoothie is to improve gut health but they also contain the minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients essential for health.
The plants in all Gbiota smoothies are selected to provide these essential minerals, vitamins and gut biology.

Sugar blockers

Sugar blockers

Our gut biology depends on our diet. People eating a typical western diet have a gut biology geared toward sugar consumption – very different to our natural gut biota focused on plants.
A sugar focused gut will send out signals for us to eat more sugary food.

Alernative food

Nutrition must be one of the most controversial, topics on the planet.

Result diabetes, obesity heart attacks and dementia.

History of food

History of food

We realised just how important nutrients, vitamins and trace minerals really were so we created a mega industry producing pills.
But paying a lot on money for pills is a bit silly when we could simply grow plants to strengthen our gut biology and immune system.

Protection from the Corona Virus

If someone with a healthy strong gut and immune system gets infected their immune system will simply kill the virus so there is no further infection, sometimes with no symptoms or just a bit of a sniffle. But if they have a weak immune system

I now live in Bundaberg, Queensland, the latitude is about 25 ° which is in the band of deserts around the world.

The winter climate is as near to perfect as you can get and is is possible to grow a wide range of plants. It rarely rains so as long as you have a supply of water everything is fine.

My specialist expertise is in how the way we grow our food affects our health. Eating fresh vegetables grown in specifics ways can improve gut health and strengthen our immune system. Here I try to help people grow food to fight the virus.

For consumers it will mean fresh produce full of the essential mineral, phytonutrients and beneficial biology which leads to a healthy gut biology which controls our appetite and immune system.

I have a readily available supply of food. I may have overreacted and will soon be left with mountains of food so I also want to write about how we can supply food to those in need without leaving our homes.

Right now we all need a really good immune system. The Corona virus is spreading . But only about 3% of the people who get the Corona virus actually die, in fact young people with a healthy immune system can get Corona virus and not even know they have it.

We know that the current ‘fat in the wrong places’ epidemic (diabetes, dementia and obesity) has only occurred in the last fifty years and there was no such epidemic when people were eating a diet rich in vegetables grown in nutrient rich, biologically active soil.

We live in an age of unbridled information, much of it conflicting so how do we know what it true and what is false – and why does it matter?

False information can make us sick and die young while sound information can keep us healthy into old age.
