'Everyone Has a Healing Food; Burdock Root Is Mine'
WE SHARE THIS STORY FROM CUSTOMER LAUREN IN VERMONT TO NOT ONLY CELEBRATE BURDOCK ROOT'S DETOXIFYING POWER, BUT ALSO TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO TURN TO FOOD FOR HEALING.
I have struggled with skin problems for a very long time. I took Accutane, and when that didn’t really work, I realized that I wanted to get to the root of the problem. I found out I had a hormone imbalance and simultaneously was studying the food system. As I got really interested in my health and the health of our food system, I saw how connected the two were and paid very close attention to how the foods I ate made me feel and where they came from.

Fast forward about four years, and now I am taking prerequisites to apply to
Five Branches University in Santa Cruz to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine. I’ve learned so much about food and health and have made a lot of changes. I still was frustrated with my breakouts, although they were much better. A dear friend recommended to me your Burdock Root Powder. She thought “it might be a good one for me.” I researched the company and the root a bit and put in an order.
I have never seen such a consistent difference in my skin. I truly thank burdock root and Dr. Cowan’s high-quality preservation of it. I can’t believeeeee no one has recommended it me before. Burdock root is one of the blood’s most powerful detoxifiers! Of course, it would help my skin! It has also really helped with digestion and overall well-being. I believe there is a healing food for everyone; burdock root is definitely mine, and I honestly won’t get it from anyone else.

We asked Lauren to share her favorite way to use Burdock Root Powder, and here's her response:
"Hmm. I would love to say I have a favorite way to use it, but I really just mix it in everything! I love to cook and make a lot of curry-type dishes and rice bowls, but I also have it with eggs or, most recently this morning, I mixed it with my almond butter on toast with banana and cinnamon."

These are challenging times for all of us. While everyone has deeply held thoughts and feelings that are needing to be expressed, I want to send out two short messages. First, I would like to ask everyone to join me in imagining the type of world we wish to emerge out of this crisis. Do we want to create a world of isolation and separation, where neighbor is pitted against neighbor, or do we want a world of connectedness and compassion?
In this time of stress and confusion, I wanted to share a heartwarming story that was made possible by you, our customers. As I have said, one of our core missions is to help small farms grow, prosper and, if possible, convert to biodynamics. We just received word this week that Red Range Farm in Pennsylvania has received its official Demeter certification, meaning, it is now a recognized biodynamic farm.
Clearly, everyone’s attention is on the current crisis going on worldwide. It is important to remember that our immune system is largely responsible for clearing toxins and “debris” from our cells and tissues. The less burdened our bodies are with toxins, the better we can respond to microbes and other outside pathogens. With this in mind, here are the six things I do to try to keep my immune system and detoxification pathways as strong as possible.
