'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."

Beauty and art play an integral role in gardening regardless of the garden's purpose. Even in the most pragmatic of settings beauty is still necessary; pollinators are naturally attracted to consistently flowering gardens. Bees will even create associative routines to help remember where the nice flowers are thus helping your cucumbers, apple trees, or pumpkin plants to produce more fruit. Perhaps more importantly, focusing on beauty for most people will help to make the garden more inviting and enjoyable in addition to more productive.
Early September in Maine is a beautiful time of year. The summer heat and humidity has started to give way to a crisp and clean autumn warmth. The farmer’s markets are abuzz all over the area with profusion and variety. At this point our freezer is about a third full with tomato sauce, hot sauce, and a few other small batch things that will remind us of the harvest the previous year and give us something to look forward to as we look forward.

I get asked a lot whether it is important to include meat in one’s diet. Unfortunately, this is the wrong question and will likely lead you astray. The correct question is whether it’s important to include animal products of some form in one’s diet. The unambiguous answer is “yes.”
The clearest epidemiological studies ever done on humans were done by Weston Price. His approach was simple and straightforward: He looked around the world for people with perfect teeth and perfect health. He found 14 such groups, on all continents, in all races.
