Aims of the Gbiota club
To create a community food system where people,
– particularly home gardeners and environmentally sensitive commercial growers, with the
land, time and skills
– can process waste food and other organic waste into biologically active nutrient rich soil
– which can be loaded into Gbiota boxes, which they seed and grow
– and when ready distributed to community who do not have the land time or skills to grow
their own food.
– they can then harvest the plants fresh and receive the health benefits of eating fresh
Humans are the dominant creature on earth for two reasons – we are innovative and
naturally cooperative. There is no other creature that forms complex societies where
individuals contribute to society according to their abilities.
But not all individuals are cooperative – there are a few that put their desire for power and
money ahead of the community. Concentration of the power of technology by Neomonoplist
mega organisations is threatening the very basis of our society.
Unfortunately this is very true of food where we are destroying the soil on which life
depends and our diet is lacking the biology and minerals essential for our health.
We can solve this problem by setting up a community based food system where the local
people work together to grow and distribute food, particularly the gut food which is missing
from our modern diet.
The first step is to read the key blogs on this site then register as a Gbiota club member
and receive notification of all new blogs – this is a fast moving project.
The Gbiota club is there to connect people in a local ares so they can set up their own
local food network.
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.
There are many plants in traditional medicine which are claimed to strengthen our immune system. There has been genuine scientific research into some of these plants which support these claims but it is not clear how they work.
I am urgently looking for people or organisations to help improve the communities gut health and hence immune system by manufacturing and distributing Gbiota boxes.
This delta virus is a totally different and more deadly beast –
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 innovation which has led to the wrong development of the wrong sort of food and a two tier society of haves and have nots – which is intrinsically unstable.
how to implement this technology – spreading the benefits of Gbiota beds so that the whole of society can benefit
We know how to grow food with these essential minerals and biology and there are plenty of regenerative farmers willing to grow using these methods – but they need a market.
Wicking Gbiota bed story
The battle of an innovator to change the global food system
I have decided to write a book about how we need to change our food system
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.
In this article I show how Greta Foodberg and I are going to change the world’s food system. The good news it you only have to read the first and last page to see what it all about. The bad news is that if you are Greta Foodberg you will read the whole 22 pages and then email me.
Feed your gut brain
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.
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.
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.
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.
how food affect health and life span
This is a post from one of our users Igor Grossman in Melbourne about his aquaponics systems. Although a different technology the basic aims of high nutrients and active biology are similar to Gbiota beds [pdf-embedder...
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.
We have the virus causing deaths and economic destruction around the world, we are approaching ten billion people on our one and only planet and they need to be fed in a sustainable way without destroying our planet.
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.
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.
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.
Nutrition must be one of the most controversial, topics on the planet.
Go on line and an ocean of confusing and contradicting views fuelled by inscrutable scientific data, dogma powered by a tsunami of abuse.
Result diabetes, obesity heart attacks and dementia.
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.
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
The Corona virus is not some random and isolated disaster. It is the inevitable outcome of small farmers struggling against the might of big food and trying to make a living by the uncontrolled selling of wild animals.
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.
When you join the Gbiota club you join a community of growers, transporters, restaurateurs, health advisers and consumers focused on food that enhances our gut and brain health.
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.
My wife, Xiulan, a medical doctor, was having severe problems with her diabetes (see mission) so we fitted here with a continuous blood sugar monitor to look for connections between her blood sugar levels, her food and anything else which could be relevant.
The trillions of cells in our guts do far more than digest our food, they form part of an intelligent control system which manages our bodies, in particular how much and where we store fat.
Xiulan was not particularly concerned when she was first diagnosed with diabetes. She was a doctor, actually a surgeon and gynaecologist and had confidence in the health system.
I developed the Gbiota beds so my wife could eat healthy food, full of nutrient, trace minerals and biology and her diabetes reversed. And she can see, walk and dance which see very much likes.
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.
I tell the story of the greatest wonder of the world, human intelligence and how it has changed the world sometimes for the better and other times for the worse.
This post looks at the paradigm shift needed to change the way we treat type 2 diabetes.
Do we really want our kids to grow

biology, that’s what this story is all about.
We are in the midst of what has been called the black death of the twenty first century – epitomised by the obesity and diabetes epidemic.
Do we really want our kids to grow up fat and diabetic, mums need to be eating food that feeds their gut biology, that’s what this web site is all about.
Why is it that we are in the midst of a health crisis?
What I call the fat in the wrong places epidemic of diabetes, dementia, obesity with their associated side effects yet there seems so little public reaction.
Gbiotafood was developed to provide the trace minerals and beneficial biology essential to health but missing in our modern food system.
In areas across the world we have people living in the blue zones.
Dietary advice can appear to be totally confusing with so many different opinions low fat, low carb, low meat, low eggs etc.
Some people will never get fat and sick whatever they eat while other go to extreme lengths to avoid putting on weight.
The Gbiota bed growing system was developed to provide an alternative to the high fat and sugar, low nutrient modern foods system which is leading to major health issues.
