I came across an interesting video that combines some thoughts I’ve attached to over the years. It inspires me to get some local rock dust from the gravel pits around here- we are a glaciated region.
Well, I’m not considering becoming vegetarian any time soon, but it just makes sense to build the depleted soils I grow my food on, now.
The Healing Power of Minerals, Special Nutrients and Trace Elements and Empty Harvest are two books mentioned that I’m very interested in reading.
I had read a book years ago (actually in the sixties) about the Hunza’s healthy diet … my Grandfather had bought copies for all the family members. I remember yogurt and honey being two things important for health, but didn’t recall much on mineral soils producing good nutritious food. There was some comment on some of the mountainous area of some societies contributing to healthy longevity.
Like most things concerning health and well being, there seems to be a combination of factors that contribute… working into old age (and mattering to ones society), healthy foods, contented attitudes rather than stressful striving, I try to pick things that I know I can do to improve, and go from there. Re-mineralizing my soils in the vegetable beds seems like a reasonable step.
