When we plant vegetables, we have a choice of using chemical fertilizers or natural compost. They both promote plant growth and yield big crops. Chemical fertilizers are available in stores and easy to use whereas home-made compost requires more manual labor and time.

 

So why do we even bother using compost? At a first glance, chemical fertilizers look superior to compost as they yield bigger crops, cost less, and require less labor. But as we use more and more fertilizers, it has become clear that today’s vegetables are less nutritious, soils are much depleted, and more fertilizers are needed to sustain farming. Even worse, if you use too much chemical fertilizers, you can actually kill the vegetables. Does this sound familiar?

 

Oriental medicine focuses on treating the whole body and correcting imbalances, and its effects are often milder and slower compared to western medicine. But humans are organisms, just like plants, and when we treat ourselves with Oriental medicine periodically, we stay healthier, require less medication, and cost less in the end.

 

We all need medications at some point in our lives, and improvements in medication have let many people live longer. My goal is to help people live their lives without medication as long as possible, so their bodies respond well to medication when they absolutely need it.
