It’s Not the Gluten – It’s the Round-Up!

(CAVEAT: This article may engender fear. Let not your heart be troubled, however, as I will address the issue from a nutritional and holistic perspective, as well as offer ways to repair the damage glyphosates do to the gut, in my next post. So, hold steady and stay tuned – and read my reply to one of my reader’s comment below, as well as his comment. )

It’s NOT gluten. It’s Round-Up that’s poisoning our wheat. Read this important article to learn the facts about so-called “gluten intolerance.”

Gluten Intolerance is really GLYPHOSATE POISONING

What if….”gluten intolerance” is really “glyphosate poisoning”?

Gluten has been in wheat since it was first grown. Sure, there have always been folks who have problems digesting wheat or grains with gluten. Today, about 50% of the world have problems with gluten. (1) Something has changed.

That “something” is glyphosate. 

Glyphosate has only been on this planet since Monsanto patented it as “Roundup” in 1973. This chemical herbicide goes by 32 or more tradenames and, now that the patent protection expired in 2000, is made by nine chemical companies — most of whom, not coincidentally, are also in the drug business. Over 200 million pounds of it is used all over the world every year. That’s 100,000 tons! Roundup brings in half of Monsanto’s yearly profits. Like vaccines, each manufacturer can add its own extra ingredients called adjuvants or surfactants. Some data suggests that the adjuvants are even more toxic than the glyphosate. (2)

The original use of glyphosate was to prevent weeds. Somewhere along the way, it was discovered that a pre-harvest spraying of glyphosate directly onto the crops made for an easier harvest, as it desiccates the material. WHEAT and CANE SUGAR are the two foods most often treated in this manner. What foods have wheat and sugar? Take a walk down the cereal aisle, the one with the pretty boxes that beckon to your children. See the cookies, crackers, breads, cakes — all those things that have gluten — as well as a double dose of glyphosate.

Nice.

And I really, really mean “nice.” Etymology: Middle English, foolish, wanton, from Old French, from Latin nescius ignorant, from nescire not to know.

Monsanto applied for the patent on glyphosate with full knowledge that it worked by blocking the shikimate pathway of plants and certain bacteria. Therefore, since people are not plants or bacteria, glyphosate must be safe, they told the FDA.

What Monsanto did not disclose is that the bacteria in a human gut all have shikimate pathways. This is huge. Without gut bacteria, people become very ill and malnourished, develop antibodies to their own organs, mentally depressed, full of yeast and other pathogenic bacteria, and mineral deficient. Nerve transmission fails and energy is gone. The mind cannot focus. Children get labeled at school as having behavior problems. Adults think they are crazy and run to the Prozac. This could only have happened if the scientists at Monsanto and FDA are malevolent and the worst sort of facinorous psychopaths. They are not nice guys, not ignorant of their deeds; let us call them what they are: Murderers.

I submit: You do not have gluten intolerance; that is a symptom. You have been poisoned by glyphosate, therefore you have GLYPHOSATE POISONING. The first step to healing is calling something what it is. Using euphemisms and hiding wickedness behind medicalese and nebulous diagnoses does no one any good. The guilty go free and the victims are denied proper treatment and timely justice.

“Food: Weapon of MASS Destruction”

This is a very timely and important video clip. We all need to hear this message and make fundamental, and in some cases radical, changes in the way we grow, process and consume our food. It also points out the absolute necessity for whole-food supplementation of vitamins and especially minerals. The soil that our food is grown in has been depleted of minerals since the 1940’s. Without minerals, vitamins can’t be utilized, leading to malnutrition; glandular (iodine for the thyroid) function fails leading to all sorts of health issues, obesity included. The bottom line is SUPPLEMENT your diet with whole food nutritional supplements. I use Standard Process Labs and Medi-Herb in my practice, the very best in supplementation and botanicals. View the video and be informed. (Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom to enlarge the screen)

From GMO to Organic Farming

In Dr. Bruce Lipton’s wonderfully inspiring book The Honeymoon Effect there’s a dramatic story I would like to share with my readers. It’s a story about a farming community in India that started using GMO seeds to grow their food in hopes of fending off a predicted famine. I’ll let Bruce tell the story in his own words.

Bruce and his wife Margaret went to India to Meet Bharat Mitra and Bhavani Lev who had felt called to start an organic revolution in India. They founded a loving community and company called “ORGANIC INDIA, whose philosophy embraced Gaia: ‘Creation is one. The Earth is one. We are one.'”  Here’s the story.

The Story of Azamgarh — From GMO to Organic Farming

They started their revolution in 1997 in the town of Azamgarh. In the ’60s, many farmers in this community had embraced the high-tech “Green Revolution” farming methods that Western corporations had introduced to India. They mortgaged their farms and lives to buy the promise of costly genetically modified seeds; and then had to borrow more to pay for the synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and modern irrigation projects required to grow the genetically modified plants. The goal was to fend off the country’s famines that had once been considered inevitable, and at first it seemed to work. Yields increased and formerly poverty-stricken towns and the farmers who lived in them prospered.

But by the time ORGANIC INDIA started its work in Azamgarh, many farmers had become disillusioned and desperate. Their fields had indeed turned green but in the process had sucked up so much groundwater that they needed to dig deeper and deeper wells and borrow more and more money. The genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and petrochemical sprays produced an environmental disaster with devastating conse-
quences. Monsanto’s GMO “monster crops” accelerated depletion of soil nutrients, creating plant blight, which in turn led to an invasion of destructive insects. The
farmers had to borrow more money to buy more and more chemicals to grow their crops to fend off pests that had become resistant. In the last decade, nearly
200,000 Indian farmers, unable to continue to work their depleted land and unable to make loan payments, took their own lives-many by drinking the very pes-
ticides they had been told would ensure a good livelihood for them and their families.

Unsurprisingly, when ORGANIC INDIA arrived in Azamgarh, farmers were suspicious of more Westerners asking them to radically change the way they work. And just as a practical matter, they were leery of becoming organic farmers, because it takes at least three years to certify a field as organic.

Despite these suspicions, one farmer named Kailash Nath Singh decided to take a chance by going organic on his small, three-acre farm. That small step couldn’t have
been more symbolic; not only was Singh going back to the way his ancestors had farmed but he was doing it with the ancient crop tulsi (also called holy basil), a
wild medicinal herb that has been used for thousands of years in traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda) to heal body and mind.

Now, thanks to ORGANIC INDIA’s subsidies during their transition, 15 years later there are 1,000 organic farmers in Azamgarh and 20,000 around the country. The stories these grateful farmers tell are incredibly moving and a testament to the sustainability of organic farming-constant enrichment of the soil, healthier livestock, fewer miscarriages, and thriving children. Says Kailash Nath Singh, “Organic farming has come as a real blessing for our family. Our succeeding generations will reap the benefits and realize how the land has not lost its fertility due to heavy use of chemicals.”

I can’t tell you how inspiring it was for Margaret and me to see women and men working in organic tulsi, psyllium, and intoxicatingly fragrant rose fields (used
in their fabulous Tulsi Sweet Rose Tea), cultivating their crops in a sustainable way. They are literally healing the Earth one field at a time. Says Bharat Mitra, “It’s not
only that they have sustainable income, not only that, the environment is healthy, not only that their livestock is doing well, not only their own health has improved so
significantly, but they have the dignity of being farmers again. How beautiful. How natural. How simple.”

The farmers’ crops are processed and shipped from Lucknow all over the world to consumers (like Margaret and me) clamoring for organic products, which means
that ORGANIC INDIA is now making a global impact as well. The company is committed to its vision of being a vehicle of consciousness; it is running its business in a way that benefits everyone who works at the company and the consumers who buy its high-quality products. Says Bhavani, “Unless we all experience that we are all of the same consciousness we’re going to treat each other as if you don’t matter.” 

Here is America, the GMO corporate farming industry lead by Monsanto cares about one thing and one thing only: profits. It treats us as though we don’t matter. Our GMO crops are being denied entrance into more and more foreign countries. Why is our government not only allowing but empowering Monsanto to produce and supply our grocery shelves with GMO foods?  

Here’s an updated video clip on the class action suit against Mondanto for those who want to know more about what’s happening with GMO in this country

 

Please share this blog around. Monsanto and its GMO farming practices need to be stopped.
