Organic food reduces toxicity in our body

People go back and forth discussing why organically grown food is good for us and why we should consume it. The question which remains unanswered is, “how does organic food reduce toxicity in the human body?”.

A study was conducted where adults were asked to consume only organic food for one whole week. After the tests were done, the results showed that the level of toxic waste in the body had dropped by 89% . Now that is a pretty significant and big number. This toxicity is an Organophosphate pesticide or just OP Pesticide. It can lead to problems in growth, fertility and development of the body. It can cause autism (a mental condition where forming relationships becomes difficult) and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a condition which affects concentration power and focus) in the offsprings.

Sounds like a good reason to eat organic food, eh?

What is the origin of Organic Farming?

Organic farming has no origin. It was a conventional approach before humans delved into chemistry and found fertilisers. Natural ways were the way to go before the Second World War. After a lot of research, farmers started using chemicals on their farm lands. That was when the Organic Movement rose in Europe. Both the farmers and the consumers revolted against the industrialisation of agriculture. Consumers became more conscious about their health and well being, and preferred organically grown produce. They had realised the harmful effects of these chemicals. This conscious started spreading to different parts of the world which led to an increase in the demand of organically produced fruits and vegetables. As Economics dictates, farmers switched to organic farming. That is why we see such fancy packaging of organic products with a USDA Organic logo in most of the retail stores.

Not just humans, organic farming supports all species!

Let’s not be selfish by thinking of just the mankind. There are many other species who reside with us on the same land. We are all a part of the same food chain, remember? This practice of agriculture encourages biodiversity. It preserves the natural habitat for all the fauna. If they are healthy, they naturally become pest controllers. No need to hire pest control now. So farmers can save money on that note. On the other hand, fertilisers support the growth of algae blooms, a.k.a red tide, which release toxins for microbes in the soil. This results in infertility of the soil. Sometimes it can turn the colour of water into red (now you know why it is also called ‘red tide’). Although, algae is considered a vital part of the food chain, this kind is rather deadly. So let’s do what is in our control and try our best to avoid fertilisers and pesticides.

How about a slice of “organic” Red Velvet Cake?

From time to time, we all ache for a rich, creamy and buttery slice of red velvet cake. Funny thing is, this dessert does not have its own flavour. It is just red food colouring. How about we replace this food colouring with a natural agent? Say beets or raspberries. Just boil them and get natural colouring. These are more friendly for your dessert and your body will be grateful to you. Synthetic colouring can cause allergies, bladder cancer and brain tumours. Now you can enjoy that cake without getting worried about how it can harm you……except the calories maybe. For orange, you can use carrots. This veggie gives a deep orange colour. Yellow can be made by using turmeric or saffron flowers. Normally, we do not use green food colouring but spinach will get the best results. For blue and purple, you can take red cabbage, blueberries or blackberries. All these tactics make your food look and taste beautiful. And if you choose organically grown vegetables, even better! You’re in for a healthier lifestyle.

Organic farming is another thing which pops up in the mind. Not using the pesticides and insecticides will do the world a whole lot of good.

Basically all of you will have an idea by now. The idea being, choose wisely. Give it a nice thought. Think about both the sides. What is good in this and that as well as bad in this and that.

And at the end of the day, life is shaped by the choices you make. Good or bad, it’s your choice.

Awakening Indians: An initiative by Organic Wellness

“Awakening Indians” started as an internship project, but today it is one of the main projects for Organic Wellness.

As we are associated with the farmers, the idea behind Awakening Indians is to educate their children, as their family means our family. A typical day here does not mean rigorous lessons in the classroom. Our day consists of drawing, reading, writing, watching cartoons and playing sports. These activities develop creativity, focus and thinking ability. They are also fun ways of learning. These kids are extremely enthusiastic, punctual and avid learners. You will not believe how many things you can end up learning by spending time with them!

Which energy are you? Wind, fire or water?

Most of us prefer taking medicines, which provide instant relief. But some of those medicines have side effects in the long term. But we usually deal with it by “yeah we’ll see” or “haan yaar dekha jayega“. Similarly Ayurveda has pros and cons as well. It works slowly. But it makes the immune system very strong. The first image that comes to our minds when we speak of Ayurveda is different kinds of herbs. It is important to understand that an Ayurvedic lifestyle includes exercising and a healthy diet, not just taking herbal supplements. Don’t expect Tulsi to work if you eat pizza almost every other day in front of the television. Things don’t come that easy after all. It’s a balance of all the body energies. According to Ayurveda, every person has a different energy or dosha. It has a physical and an emotional aspect.

First, Vata, which is Sanskrit for wind, takes care of breathing and circulation. It enhances creativity and keeps the body active. This person is often stressed and fears to take a different path.

Second, Pitta, which is Sanskrit for fire, takes care of digestion and maintains the body temperature. This kind tends to be hard working and driven but can lose their temper easily.

Third, Kapha, which is Sanskrit for water, boosts the immune system and nourishes the organs. People dominant with this energy are supportive and loving but often insecure and lazy.

Have you found your dosha yet?
